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 …
- 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
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 😀
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
