What I wore to go buy these: Mint dress, black leather jacket, black tights, black shoes, mint bow bag, mint nail polish.
What I bought: All mint-cum-black packaging [I got the pink kit a few days later, like a sensible woman.]
SA (Sales Assistant): "So, you like green, huh?"
Me: "I guess so. Look at me!"
Later at the cash counter:
SA: "I'll give you a green shopping bag." (the silk bag with zig-zag print & bow detail.)
Me: "Oh, thanks! Err...actually, I wouldn't mind the pink one, since everything else I got is green."
SA: "Oh, alright!" *took out pink bag and put it in the MAC bag* [Wrong choice! My head screamed at me.]
Me: "Umm, sorry to trouble you, but now I want the green one."
SA: "Okay, no problem! *LOL*", then she said to another SA: "She likes green!", and they both laughed.
Such nice & friendly makeup store SA's here!
What I picked up:
- MAC Perfectly Plush Brush Kit Essential
- MAC Fabulousness Eye Kit Neutral Eyes
- MAC All For Glamour Touch Up Kit Medium Dark
MAC All For Glamour Touch Up Kit Medium Dark ~ Modern, high-luxe compact for lips and face. Includes Blot Powder/Pressed in Medium Dark (Net Wt 5g) to reduce shine and Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Bare Again, which delivers intense colour with the gleam of a Lipglass.
Price ~ £30.00 (Rs.2625)
Blot Powder Medium Dark, Bare Again Sheen Supreme Lipstick (Natural light)
Blot Powder Medium Dark, Bare Again Sheen Supreme Lipstick (With flash)
MAC Fabulousness Eye Kit Neutral Eyes ~ I cancelled this palette from my wishlist because it got some very bad reviews & ratings. But when I swatched the eyeshadows at the store, they didn't disappoint me. I was so happy because I really wanted this pretty mint packaging. I will do a look sometime to show you the eyeshadows. The only eyeshadow that is kind of chalky is Blonde Mink (the 1st color). The others are all very wearable. I just think they should have put a black eyeshadow instead of 2 browns.
Price ~ £32.00 (Rs.2800)
Swatches: Blonde Mink, Magical Mist, Brun, Enviable, Smut
MAC Perfectly Plush Brush Kit Essential: These are my very first MAC brushes. I really to get them because 1 brush cost around Rs.2500, and this set of 5 brushes seemed to be a really good deal. Plus, the pouch is so cute & versatile! If you're wondering if the mint will bleed out when washing them, I read that it doesn't. I haven't washed them yet. I have used them, and they're nice. I really like 226 tapered blending brush & 275 angled brush. The foundation brush 190, though very soft, couldn't blend my foundation smoothly, I needed another buffing brush to smooth out the streaks. I think I'll just use it for BB Creams & Primers now.
Price ~ £39.50 (Rs.3457)
- 129 Powder/Blush Brush
- 190 Foundation Brush
- 226 Small Tapered Blending Brush
- 275 Medium Angled Shading Brush
- 266 Small Angle Brush
The bow sizes are different.
If you want suggestions on other products from Glamour Daze Collection, I really really liked:
- Glamour Daze Extra Dimension Eyeshadow in 'Stolen Moment'. It's so purrrrty.
- Glamour Daze Fluidline in 'Catch My Eye' & 'Little Black Bow'. They are gel liners with glitter, super gorgeous!
- Guilty Passions Pigment or Lip Gloss Sets. The mini hat boxes are too cute!
This is one of the things I'll miss when I go back to India- getting my hands on MAC Collections as soon as they launch! =)
What are you drooling over?
