My small haul . 🙂
I just wanted to share with you people my recent haul .Here are the stuff I got:
I dropped into one of the CCOs – Cosmetics Company Outlets . CCOs stock up most of the dis-continued and limited edition items that are no longer available in stores at very reasonable prices. They had a huge variety of skincare and cosmetics everything belonging to the Estee Lauder group. MAC, Estee Lauder, Clinique, Bobbi Brown etc. I dare not buy any kind of skin care from there. God knows, since when they have been lying around there.
I was also running out of time, so I just got one MAC Lipglass in ‘Personal Taste’ which was released as part of the Make-up Art Cosmetics collection in late 2009 here. I will be using it for 5-6 months after which I feel it ‘might’ start to separate. Buy hey, it was a good bargain at $10 for a MAC lip gloss. 🙂
They had some very good collection of MAC eye shadow palettes. Might get it sometime. 🙂 I think as far as CCOs are concerned, it’s good to try powder based items as they tend to have a longer shelf life.
MAC Lipglass in Personal Taste:
Then, I got the following stuff also. Got these from Ulta.
Smashbox lip enhancing gloss in Afterglow and blush rush in Chiffon 🙂 . I love the way chiffon shows up on me. It’s a bit shimmery but looks lovely when applied.
Finally, I got myself the Revlon Colourburst lipstick in Peach…love it…Wanted to get this shade after reading Rati’s review and swatches:) .
NYX round lipstick in Thalia. It’s a bit too bright, rather looks more purple-ish which I don’t like that much, but looks nice when topped off with a clear gloss. 🙂
Swatches for the lipsticks:
*It’s actually personal taste…spelt it wrong in the swatch
That’s all for now. Hope y’all liked it 🙂

I wish we could get smashbox here. 🙁 that lipgloss and blush are to die for!!
Btw is Smashbox a high end brand??
If I am not wrong… Thalia is a super hyped lippy no?
Yeah Rati…Smashbox is a high end brand 🙂 most of their stuff are costlier than MAC…all their products are drool-worthy esp the lip glosses…There is this lippe called o-gloss which goes and transparent and changes to a perfect pink according to the persons skin color 🙂 and yeah Thalia was super hyped so I got it…it’s some weird mauvy-purple…without a gloss looks very average 🙁 Not meant for Indian skin tones I suppose 🙁
Love them all.. :inlove: :inlove: Nice haul.. I definitely need to pick up Revlon in peach color.. It looks absolutely gorgeous
Thanks Priya 🙂 …get the peach color…it’s adorable…I had it on my wish list for a while, but got really tempted after reading a review on this blog 😉

Nice stuff Appu! I have a CCO at a Saks Fifth outlet close to where I live, and it’s awesome…but I’ve never seen Smashbox there 🙁 you’re so lucky!
How do you make Thalia work on you? I can’t wear it by itself either..so it’s lying in a corner.
:beatup: oops just realized you bought the Smashbox stuff from Ulta…still gorgeous!

Thanks Devika 🙂 Thalia was over hyped I suppose…if i wear it as such, it looks like i got a sore lip…looks pretty ok with a light shade of gloss 🙂 …i try to pair it with MACs plush glass in ample pink 🙂 seems fine that way 😉
