Last Weekend Haul (MAC, Shiseido, NYX, etc...)

It's been a busy week for me at work and I feel like I never have enough time to do what I want to get done when I get home. Last weekend, my boy-friend and I hung out in Chicago for a bit and like usual we were hitting the stores and malls so I ended up getting some stuff, lol. If you don't know it yet...I'm a shopaholic! Had to do this haul before my Sephora order gets here.

 I stopped by the Cosmetic Company Store at the outlet mall and bought these MAC makeup. You may be able to find some of these items from previous MAC collection in your local outlet mall too.

From left to right: Prim and Proper Blush (Satin, nudy pink), Dirty Plum Blush (Matte cool-toned plum), On a Mission Beauty Powder Blush (mauve). All colors are pigmented and pretty....Definitely needed to add more blush shade to my collection.

 MAC Peachstock is a peachy nude lipstick with a satin finish. This came out with the Liberty of London collection over the summer. I did previously buy other items from this collection so these were just adds on. The packaging is so cute. Peachstock is also available at MAC Pro stores.  

MAC Pro Longwear Lustre Lipcolor (Gypsy Rose and Shimmer It). I picked this up because I thought the color was so pretty and I don't think I have anything like it. Gypsy Rose is kinda like a coppery rose color with some gold shimmers. You're supposed to apply this color first and once it sets you can put the Shimmer It gloss over it. Without the gloss the lipcolor alone feels slightly tacky. If you want your lipcolor to last, this will do the job.

MAC Hocus Focus Colourful Face Kit. You get 2 blushes and one highlight. The packaging feels a bit bulky and heavy. I really liked the colors and figure I could use more blushes, lol.

Shiseido Lipstick BE208 is a pinky nude shade. I found this store in Chicago's China town that sells Shiseido products so I had to check it out. They also had other asian beauty products in the store including Cle De Peau, which is also made by Shiseido (it's so damn expensive!). I found the prices to be kinda high so I only bought a lipstick and eyelash curler. I picked this color because it's more wearable and subtle. This is something I could wear every day if I wanted to. I wore it to work the other day and I absolutely love the formula. It feels smooth and creamy when you apply it. Very good pigmentation and last about 4 hours on me. What I love the most is that it is sooo moisturizing! I didn't even need to reach for my lip balm throughout the day.

NYX Nail Polish - Paradise. Occasionally, you can find NYX products in perfume stores like I did. This nail color quickly grabbed my attention. It has like a duochrome effect. It's a sheer teal blue color with very fine gold shimmers. With two coats you get a semi-opaque color.

I bought this Point Curler along with my Shiseido lipstick. What's interesting about this product is that is it pretty small and you can choose which section of your eyelashes you want to curl. It folds flat and you can throw it in your purse if you need to. I don't like the fact that it's made of plastic because it can break easily.

I also bought a MAC Lipglass set and an Estee Lauder Lipstick set that I am planning on re-selling. Hoping people will buy. That's pretty much it for my beauty haul. Thanks for looking if you've got this far!

Yes I'm a Snake!

How cool is that? The structure you see on the right is where the elevator is.

This is my first Shiseido purchase and the lipstick cost like $25. So far I am very liking the formula of the lipstick. You can definitely feel the quality of it when you wear it.
