Earlier this week, i got a message from my Aunt that i have a package. I was surprised to know that it's from Elegant Minerals because i just got an email that my items have been shipped less than a week ago! Wow, that was fast!
So today, when my mom and sis came over, they gave me my package:
i got myself a sample kit of their Light and Medium foundation shades, a couple of eyeshadow samplers, setting powder, blushes , concealers and their clay mask. I bought this loot online when they had their 50% off sale weeks ago. My total order is $25, so after the promo it was $12.50 but after adding the shipping of $12...i still ended up with almost the same price before i availed of their promo. Wahahaha...
Anyways, i love their packaging. the samples come in sealed 5g pots...they seem so meticulous in their packaging...and i love their customer service too!
Mid this week, i got some items from a friend who sells Shiseido eyeshadows...I love the colors, and i just can't resist getting some:
and today, i went to the mall with mom and sis to look for something to wear on my sister's recognition day...i wasn't feeling very well because i feel hmm..constipated. LOL! I've been eating too much since last night and i went to sleep right after my BIG meal. When mom and sis finished their shopping, i only have a pair of shoes and an eye makeup remover with me. I thought i'd be going home "almost" empty-handed...until i dropped by MAC (uh-ohhhh!)
anyways, here's my loot for today:
I put in everything inside the WADE bag i got from buying this pair:
i can never get enough of wedges :)
poor me...i only got this Lip and Eye makeup remover from Watsons (hehehe) Actually i got this and a Revlon Feria Hair Color but mom brought it home in the province since i'll be coming home this weekend anyways. Sometimes, she's the one who colors my hair :) Sometimes, i do. I do my base color then i just go to a salon for the highlights.
Now, here's my Mac loot:
Studio Fix Liquid in NC15, MSF in Natural, Amplified Cream Lipstick in Profusion and a Holiday Face Brush set!
I also got a freebie:
MAC Wipes, Lip Conditioner and a 129SE brush!
So for today, i got myself a total of 5 MAC SE brushes:
just by looking at them makes me wanna jump with joy...tee-hee
now i have 2 MAC 187. The long-handled one and the SE:
I just hope that i will use them...they look so pretty that i am thinking of just putting them on display. LOL!
The bag's also nice, but i don't think i can bring this with me when i go out:
but it is still MAC! :)
so there...i am officially on a NO BUY until next month! I want to poke my head real hard because for this month alone, i've spent too much on makeup. Geesh, i need some serious shopping rehab!
and just when i told myself that i won't be visiting MAC for the entire month of April, i just discovered that NC15 is too light for me. ARghhh! When the SA applied this earlier on me, it looked okay...but when i came home and tried it again, it looks light on me especially when i took pictures!
Grrrr...Actually, NC25 is a good match...but mom, insisted on getting a shade lighter because i am acidic so we tried NC20 and it's still a good match but they don't have stocks so i ended up buying NC15. She tried it on me and it looks okay...but now, it's not! huhuhuhu
Oh well, i just wish i can return this one soon so i can get the NC20 once they replenish their stocks. But i am impatient, so i guess i'd be having a trip to another MAC counter to get a new one and just keep this NC15 for my upcoming makeup classes.
anyways, i am still happy with my MAC loot.
But guess what really made my day?
so remember, i am on a NO-buy....please help me keep myself from buying more makeup.
