Makeup Haul from Mother Dear
Posted on: 3rd of October 2009 | Under: Fashion & Beauty

I said I was going on a makeup hiatus for a while, but Mom flew to Vancouver last month, and because my cousin gets discounts, I just couldn’t resist! She bought me the following goodies:

Loads of Makeup!!!

Mostly MAC!!! <3

concealer and eye shadows

Studio Finish Concealer in NC30 (‘coz my pot’s almost empty!), and Eye Shadows in: Goldmine, Amber Lights and Nocturnelle.

Swatched: Goldmine, Amber Lights and Nocturnelle

Swatched: Goldmine (I’ve been lemming this for a while now, but it’s not available in either Singapore, Philippines or Malaysia!), Amber Lights, and Nocturnelle.

Mineralize Blush: Fad-Dabulous

Mineralize Blush in Fad-Dabulous.

Mac Lippies

Mac Lipsticks in Captive and Rebel.

Mac Nailpolish

Mac Nail Polish: Steamy and Dark Angel.

Victoria's Secret Lip Gloss

Victoria’s Secret Lip Gloss Trio.

Extra Goodies

Extra Goodies from my cousin: Mica Bella Shimmer Powders in Tease and Intelligence, MAC Pigment in Antique Green, and Nars Eye Shadow Duo in Bellissima.

My makeup haul is nothing compared to my sister’s. She bought almost a dozen eye shadows and a whole lot of other things! Check them out at her blog. :)

I usually keep the MAC cardboard boxes (think they can create pretty¬†cardboard displays?), but they’ve just been accumulating that I think it’s about time to throw them out already. =P

Another typhoon is here in the Philippines! It was labelled as a Super Typhoon yesterday by CNN, and it has left a whole lot of us worried about the state of our people. But thankfully, over the night, typhoon Parma/Pepeng slowed down and slightly veered away from Metro Manila. We are not safe yet, and heavy rains and strong winds are still felt in the metro, but we are thankful that as of this moment, it is reported that we won’t be hit as hard anymore. Prayers are of course still needed.

Be safe, guys!

    Wow, that’s a lot of makeup! I don’t really use makeup – I only have a few tubes of lipstick and some blush and that’s about it – but I know my sister would LOVE these! XD

    Fatima: Hehe! It’s quite a lot, I know… but I’m just a moderate makeup fanatic. You should see those who are super duper crazy about makeup. Their hauls are so much more drool-worthy than mine. LOL!

    oh yeah, i encourage you to play with that revlon quad of yours. hahaha… i could not leave mine alone for days. i’m susprised at how pigmented it is too. :)

    wow. that’s so nice, sweet, and generous of your mom to buy you all these goodies. :D ooh… i haven’t bought makeup in a while and now i’m getting some haul ideas for this friday. hahaha… rebel is a pretty color. i thought it would be very dark purple, but it turns out to be like a lovely dark fuschia shade. :) i’ve been curious about the micabella pigments. in case you play with them, please let me know how they work out for you. :) there’s a micabella kiosk in our mall i’ve been wanting to check out.

    have fun and take care. :)

    Ate Janz: It’s so hard NOT buying makeup! That’s why I just try to stay away from malls altogether… But we all know that that’s an even harder thing to do for a girl! HAHA! I haven’t tried my micabella pigments yet. I left them in Manila (I’m back in Singapore for a month), but I’ll go play with them when I go back. :)
