MAC PRO Haul

.

I apologize for the lack of my "usual posts". Things have been super duper hectic lately, pigment orders, preparing for my 26th birthday in Las Vegas, work, etc., that i've been sleeping only 3 or 4 hours a night because there's so much to do as soon as I get off work!

I have had many products sent to me to review, so I have about 5 products sitting on my bedroom floor waiting for me to use them...so I hope I can get those to y'all soon because they are awesome products! You will just have to wait and see!

Anyway, the BF and I went to South Coast Plaza last Sunday to get his niece a present for her birthday and I ended up wandering off into of course, the MAC PRO store. Conveniently enough, the Shu Uemura store was right across from the MAC store. I ended up buying the "Kelly Green" pigment and "Pink Pearl". I also bought pro eyeshadow "Cobalt" and a regular eyeshadow in "Idol Eyes".

I had 6 empty jars to contribute for the Back2MAC program where you recycle 6 empty containers by bringing it back to MAC for a free regular lipglass, lipstick, or eyeshadow, so I decided to get "Violetta" PRO lipstick which I LOVE! It's so gorgeous! It looks so purple but it comes on a pretty purplish pink in person. Like a soft magenta, not bright at all.













Some GREEN COMPARISON swatches, humid e/s vs. emerald green pigment, and bio-green e/s vs. kelly green pigment:

idol eyes is one of those eyeshadows like vex that is SO versatile! i use it all the time. i bought it on a whim, but now i couldn't live without it. ^-^

i wish there was a "i like everything about eye makeup" response on your poll... because i truly do! even if i did nothing else to my face, i'd do my eyes.

whoa that lipstick is deceiving! i would never even swatch it just from lookin at the tube.
only 3-4 hours??? Please get more sleep. You gotta stay healthy for your birthday! Product reviews and "regular" posts (weren't these last ones "regular"?? they seemed so to me) can wait until you're not as busy.
btw your blog constantly tempts me to become a pigments girl. I'm too lazy for loose e/s though.

but yes, go sleep! nap! chamomile tea helps = ]

i like the way that lipstick looks on you. i wish i looked good with pink lipstick! when is your bday? i'm a gemini, too! my bday is may 26th and i'm going to vegas as well.

MrsDiaz said...

Wow that lipstick looked so purple, but it's amazing on you! Man girl more pigment shopping?!? haha pretty soon you're gonna have like every single container of piggies.

Let me know when you're free. Aww that's right you and my hubby both have bdays coming up!

spankedelic said...

i'm gonna be there the 24-27. hehe so i'll be there a few days before you. this is my first time going there! i'm going with my mom. it's gonna be a girl's night out. lol. no men allowed. my fiance will be home by himself. my mom's scaring me cause she wants to go to see that chippendale's type show. i'm like, "what the hell mom? you're too old for that." lol. jp. she only looks like she's 26. my mom looks young. but still.....she really wants to go see the thunder down under. i don't want a bunch of men (no matter how hot they might be) grinding their manbits in my face.
