A romantic haul...

Hi Beauties!

Sorry for the late post on this haul! I actually picked these babies up about 2 weeks ago (the day after the collection's debut)!
I still had a few of those $10 off $50 cards left for use at the bay so I thought I can put them to good use before they expire (just another excuse to shop lol).

I already had a list in mind of what i wanted to pick up. The item that I was the most excited for was the Just a pinch gel blush. However after swatching the blush at the MAC counter I immediately changed my mind. Somehow the applied consistency and color reminded me so much of Benetint by benefit which I still have a whole 3/4 bottle + sample jar to go thru. However, the MAC gel blush is probably easier to use since its not so liquidy. I always had a hard time with any kind of cheek stain cuz i find them very difficult to apply. I can never get them to go on the desired areas and blending is such a pain in the bum area.

Here are the items that I picked up from the collection along with a few other items...

From left to right:

MAC creamsheen lipstick in Creme cup(looked EVERYWHERE for this!! it was the last one left at this MAC counter)
MAC eye shadow in:
Et tu, Bouquet?
Goldmine (the BF recommended this one LOL)
MAC paint pot in bare study
MAC pigment in Mutiny

MAC creme cup lipstick on my lips:

With smile dazzle glass on top!

A benefit lipstick in candy store i found on clearance at the bay for $5.49 CAD!!
it's really really smooth despite all the glitters! makes me wanna get more lipsticks from them!
Beautiful coral pink shade w/ golden glitters!! reminds me of NARS orgasm :p

Finally, got this for my cousin at winners for 16.99!!! pretty sweet deal and the colors are actually quite pigmented!

An Urban Decay eyeliner I also found at winners for $3.99:

sorry for all the haul postings..... I promise to do some reviews, FOTDs, etc. when i get a chance to take a break from all the studying! :(

Bye bye for now!!!!


Hi Beauties!

I've been haulin quite a bit lately!! I think i should actually use these new stuffies and do some looks!

The main reason for all the crazy haulin is cuz i'm super stressed for my licensing exam thats coming up in 3 weeks!!!! So I'm probably gonna be MIA for a bit cuz i need to do some hardcore studying ... >< I'll try to do some looks here and there but no promises :(....
