My Mac Cosmetics Haul

I had a lovely day today since I won darling Radsoo’s giveaway on her blog, which by the way you all have to visit. Since my day began with the win it could only get better right ? I went to Mac today to get a lipstick through the Back to Mac program … my mom got the lipstick and I got a little crazy 😛

First off I created my dream everyday eyeshadow quad. Ideally I would have put in a black but since I own the Carbon single separately I put in a much needed blue instead .

So the colors are …

MAC eyeshadow palette

  • Top left is Rice Paper (highlight shade)
  • Top Right is Soft Brown (lid shade)
  • Bottom left is Atlantic blue (which is this amazing blue that I picked only after swatching every blue at INGLOT and MUFE). This shade was also part of MAC’s dare to wear collection.
  • Bottom right is Swiss Chocolate (crease color) I was going to go for Folie but the MAC store didn’t have the refill in Folie and then I liked this one better 😀

Perfect eye makeup needs a good base so I HAD to buy me a paint pot … and finally I am the proud owner of my very first MAC paintpot

MAC Groundwork Paintpot

Shade: Groundwork (both soft ochre and painterly were too whitish on me)
Then it was time for me to restock all my basics, ie Foundation and Compact
This time I switched from my beloved Studio Tech back to Studio Fix Fluid, I like the SPF in it 😀

MAC Studio Fix Fluid

Shade: NC 40 … yes yes NC 35 is now too light for my spanking new tan 😀 These don’t come with the pump, you have to buy that separately, I really wish MAC would stop doing that and sell the bottles with the pump, needless to say having used this foundation without a pump years ago, I was more than happy to shell out a little bit more money and buy the pump this time around.

MAC Sheer Pressed Powder, Shade NC 30 This stuff is like air for my skin. I have run through like 5 of these in the last 3 years alone :O

After giving all my make up brushes a good clean over the weekend it was time to take the plunge and invest in a good brush cleaner, washing my brushes every night was simply not feasible so MAC brush cleaner was a must buy …

And lastly … yes yes it didn’t end here ….

My very own piece from the venomous villains collection. After seeing Radsoo’s Vainglorious eyeshadow I was definitely eyeing it when my mother saw the Dr Facilier hand mirror and insisted I buy that instead. Her logic “Makeup khatam ho jaayega toh dabba fenkna padega, us se better hai ki tum yeh le lo… toh humesha use kar sakti ho” and since the package was half the appeal of that collection, I was more than happy to say ok 😀

I also picked a very chotu sample of the MAC primer with SPF 50, while also trying it at the store. Oh and since I had originally gone to MAc to get a Back to Mac Lipstick my mom got one in the shade Half and Half… when we got home she squirreled it way into her makeup bag so I couldn’t take a picture, sorry.
Lastly: For anyone in Mumbai, the Mickey Contractor collection will launch in Mumbai on the 22nd of this month. All in all a three week delay for an international collection isn’t too tragic 😛

PS : A little letter from Lucille came a few days back :)) – Rati

I’ve been reading your blog for the past month. it was here that i heard about the Mac and Mickey contractor collection! I did some research and only 3 stores in Canada were receiving it! ( i live in Canada) And luckily for me MY MAC store was getting it!! I was soo excited! anyways, I went to the MAC store today and Splurged!!! its the best collection ever, I got almost everything in the collection!! I just though I should let you all know that If you can you should definitely get your hands on it.. you wont regret it! ITs totally meant for Indian Skintones..Just thought I should let you guys know!!

                  i hvnt been there even once.. apparently y family is “scared to go there ” :weep: :weep: :weep:

                  1. Nopes..i havent been there even once…my MIL is right now in Jammu…i sooo much wanna visit Srinagar :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: ….Have seen their truly is the most beautiful place on earth :toothygrin: ! :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: !!

  4. J doo ..I am super green :green: :green: :green: :green: :green: Mommy buys inglot and mac stuff for you then she personally takes you to mac and inglot and buys more stuff for you ..why? you were not happy with the recent haul kya why did you have to buy more :smug: :smug: :green:

    he he me louu the stuff you bought. I’ll be buying folie soon. 😀 😀 They are always out of stock of that shade. :hunterwali: he he enjoy brush is super fun to use. 😀 but dont forget to wash your brushes with a nice baby soap once in a week :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

      1. Heee Heee my mommy goes a lil crazy sometimes but its a very once in a few years thing … so generally after a slew of make up shopping she goes like … ab bas you have all the stuff that u need so no more and then she actually doesnt let me pick up new stuff till ive finished everything ive got !!! :wilt: :wilt: :wilt: :wilt: :wilt: :wilt: :wilt: so it means I always have a very limited collection … like before the INGLOT hauls I seriously had no makeup left … like 4 eye pencils, 1 blush and 3 lipsticks, 2 glosses (one of which ive had since i was 16) and 2 5 years purana e/s quads (one of which I had to throw)… my foundation n powder also were over … so basically all the hauls ive been doing are now all the makeup I own 😯 😯 😯 😯 😯

        yes yes me taking super good care of my brushes … I came home to find that my mom had her own lil mac brush coll that id forgotten was around so now between the two of us theres alot of brushes that need alot of TLC :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

        You should buy folie although u know it has these purple undertones to it that im not a fan off .. as an all over lid color I thought I looked like id been punched 😛 😛 😛 😛 but yeah i can see why theyd be out of stock of that shade … anyways i think abyone who doesnt have folie or carbon shud buy the athma quad from the mc coll simply coz i think it would be a great everyday basic kinda quad thats just perfect for indian skin no ?:)

        I cant wait to use up the brush cleanser … esp since I had to bring my MAC 188 brush out of hibernation … since i got liquid foundation again :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

        1. Meri jaanu kitna kam bolti hai 😉 :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2:

              1. ratidoo ratidoo, me wants to buy coastal scents palettes. they are urrently offering good discounts on combo sets but me so confused with the combos :(( i like the 88 original, 88 shimmer , the warm palette AND metal mania palette too! plz help me in selecting 😐 😐 😐

                1. I dont like the 88 warm palette because there are too many similar browns in it and I dont think you require so many browns..They have a 28 warm palette which to me makes more sense.I feel you can buy both shimmer and matte palette because both have different colours and would be super useful in creating different looks

                    1. ratidoo, i can’t see any palette with the name”matte” so i am guessing “88 original palette”= matte one, right? 😐

    1. Don’t use cotton with the brush cleanser 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 not that I know anyone who did that..but you know..just generally telling 😐 😐 😐 😐

  5. Janhaviiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii….grrrrrrrrrr…I just send the soap today…am so angry..if I had seen this post I would have sent decomposed something somethings instead…look at that haul….haawwwwwwwwwww…and she is showing off so much!!! :spank: :spank: :spank: :spank: :spank: :spank: :spank: :green: :green: :green: :green: :green: :green: :green:
