collective haul: MAC Pret-A-Papier, Drugstore.com(neutrogena,revlon), Beauty.com (nars)

I finally met up with icefrost (michelle) on Saturday  to collect my spree items from her, namely from the MAC Pret-A-Papier, Drugstore.com and Beauty.com sprees. I think all these were ordered in May and I was patiently waiting for them to arrive since then. Almost didn't get Instant Chic blush because it was OOS on the website after a while, but thank goodness for Gwen who managed to order extras when it was back in stock. :)

Ok what you see in the pic from L-R clockwise:

  • nars blushes in Angelika, Dolce Vita, Madly, Nico and Exhibit A (20% off at Beauty.com)
  • MAC Art Supplies pearlglide in Petrol Blue, MAC Pret-A-Papier blushes (Garb and Instant Chic) and eyeshadows (Cut To Fit and Tissueweight)
  • Drugstore.com items: Neutrogena anti-residue shampoo (used to be available locally, but can't seem to find them anywhere now, anybody knows??), Revlon ColorBurst lipstick in Carnation (don't think we have this shade on our shelves here) and Revlon PhotoReady foundation in Medium Beige (not sure if this is the correct shade for me, spent some time googling and doing research on what would match me best, *cross fingers*)
  • Orly in Wild Wisteria (bought from Gwen)


Thank you Michelle and Gwen for taking care of the spree items. :) *hugs*

MAC Art Supplies haul

This is my tiny MAC Art Supplies haul.

Greasepaint stick in Dirty and Pearlglide Intense Eyeliner in Black Line, Designer Purple and Undercurrent.

I decided to pass on the blue shades of pearlglides (Petrol Blue and Industrial) and Almost Noir, which kinda reminded me of Urban Decay's 1999 24/7 glide-on pencil when I first swatched it. (I'm not saying it's a dupe in any way, I can't even compare them now since I don't have Almost Noir, just that it looks from the same shade family). I think I would have gotten all the shades if I wasn't practising some sort of self-restraint. lol.
