Haul! Sephora and omg MAC?

First haul of 2010~! it had to happen eventually. I am currently saving my pennies again but enjoying what I had gotten during my brief spree.

MAC
I walked into my MAC for my co worker whose birthday just passed but walked out with a few additional items for myself.

I am in no way anti MAC but am not a huge fan of the brand after being disappointed so often, but I always seem to come back! they are constantly having new collections that always spike my curiosity.

Tinted Lip Conditioner in Petting Pink

I am on a constant search of a great lip balm. This is a pretty shade but I don't think it does that well in conditioning my lips. The shade is sheer and cute but I still prefer the effectiveness of Burt's Bees.

Paint Pot in Rubenesque and Eyeshadow in Black Tide

Ok, I have been wanting these 2 items for a while. Rubenesque is a beautiful peachy coppery shade. I have been obsessed with this type of color for my eyes for beautiful bronzy autumn/winter looks. Really warms the face up.
Black tide is pretty no? The famous MAC Carbon was a little too intense for me. This seemed like a safer black for setting my liner.

Well Dressed Blush

Yes, a blush. I know I have posted in my "products I regret buying: MAC blushes made the list, but this is the only one I would consider purchasing. It just has such a devoted following, one of those things people have in their collections due to either love or fame.

I actually have purchased this about 4x? and returned it 4x!! due to a horrible blush history. This time I actually thought, "ok I am going to open the package and use it this time!"

Verdict? I have to admit...this blush is beautiful. Just the perfect perfect pink with subtle silver shimmer. The rest of the collection's blushes are meh to me but this item has to be my best MAC purchase to date. I have used this every single day and cannot stop. I cannot believe it. Pigmentation is not bad, but the color is just so soft and pink I can't put it down! this color is just LOVE.

Sephora! I have missed you, I had not really visited for a while to avoid temptation.

Sephora's Professional Platinum Angled Eyeliner Brush #23

I have been eying this item for a while. So far I have been trying to use gel eyeliner a few times a week. Every week with complete failure! I haven't gotten the brush to eye technique down yet. Practice makes perfect but THIS BRUSH sure does help! the control you have is so much easier than a normal angled brush, I still have trouble applying gel liner but I have been making strides since this purchase.

Stila Kitten Eyeshadow

Probably Stila's most famous product. Truly pigmented, very nice sheen, and color but I actually don't see the reason for such a cult following.
Regardless I have been wearing this on my lid every day because it was a neutral but with some definite shine.

Cargo Blue Ray Gloss in Halifax
Due to to my Sephora sabbatical I did not know Cargo was leaving Sephora and was having a sale!!! I went to 4 Sephora's to find this shade. Very pretty peachy n*de, mint scented and not too sticky. It was half off so score! Too bad Cargo is leaving Sephora it seemed like a good brand and I don't really see it anywhere else. I have always wanted to try their blushes but they were unfortunately all sold out. (unsurprisingly)

Miss Dior Cherie
This was free because of my Sephora points, I actually do not like this scent...but super cute bottle


Revlon Perle Eyeshadow in Lilac Shimmers
One of their newest eye shadows. Very pretty in the pan but omg! talk about fall out!! ugh not a fan of that aspect. You can see from the photo below it is all over my cheek.

Hope you all liked the new items!

  5. Miss Dior Cherie! I want this! How did you get it free from your points?

    I LOVE MAC's Tinted Lip Conditioner, but I love their Tendertones (which are discontinued and I just discovered them recently) more, they keep my lips nice and moisturized for hours! And my lips get really really crack and bleeding dry!

  6. Awesome buys! :O I'm also in love-hate relationship with M.A.C... Always buy something, then find it very bad, then walk into store and buy more -_-
