So what did I haul from the show?

.

Just A LOT of palettes! I also got some empty jar containers, and some Ardell falsies,(and a few more backups of Crown Brushes)...

On the left is the 15 pan eyeshadow palette (all these palettes I got from Modern Basic, a wholesale only company), and on the right is a 6-pan eyeshadow palette. These are the same sizes as the MAC eyeshadows and the MAC blushes, I am pretty sure they can be depotted somehow.

MB's packaging and products are VERY similar to MAC, but they are NOT imitations of MAC in the sense that they are trying to pass their products off AS MAC. So it would be premature to label them as "fakes" or anything of the sort as they DO have their own brushes and things that are their own, just very coincidental they look like MAC.



MB (Modern Basic) Lipglosses in Nude, Lush Lilac, and Calla Lily:




MB Lipsticks in "Oister" (yes really with an "i" and not a "y"), and "Pink Flamingo", they look the same in pictures, but Oister is more of a light pink with a tinge of purple and pink flamingo is more of a true medium blue-based pink.


Looks like MAC doesn't it?!??


Swatches & Comparisons






Cream eyeliners in "Emerald Blaze" and "Sculpture", also from MB, they stay on pretty well!






The eyeshadow palette I bought for myself (I will try and swatch these soon):


I wanted to try the Blinc Mascara since I heard so many great reviews on it, it was only $12 at the show and I know it usually retails for a lot more:


I tested it out for the first time yesterday and it supposedly "tubes" your lashes and coats it so you don't lose any eyelashes (whatever that means, lol) and removal is a cinch, just water and soap...in case you are wondering, the eyeshadows I used are the L'Oreal Metallic Duo in "Gilded", tested out my "Sculpture" Cream Eyeliner, and of course the Blinc Mascara.


I SOLD everything so fast already! BUT just so you can see how they look like, here they are:

oh and the MB stuff you got does really look like MAC! funny :)

Roxy said...

I love how the palettes have CLEAR covers instead of black ones like MAC lol And the MB l/s packaging looks like a cross between MAC & NYX!

Connie said...

Great haul! I'm totally envious. The cream eyeliners look very nice.

Askmewhats said...

they are indeed very similar to MAC!!! But i love the colors, i love the lippies! and the palettes..ohhh!!! You hauled smart!

C said...

Great haul and pics! Do you have any idea where their products are sold? I would really love to try some of their eyeshadows and lipsticks...

Vanessa <3 said...

yay i got that pallet!

Sara said...

Ooo I LOVE that gloss in "Nude"! All of their products look promising :] Do they have a website or anything to purchase their products (MB)?

Loving the gold eye! That color by L'Oreal is GORGEOUS.

Are you still using that NYC ( I think you said) for your brows? Or do you rec. something else?

Keep in touch! Xx

It may just be that the packaging is more easily available for companies in plain black, which looks similar to MAC. The lippies look like MACs, and I know that Lumiere mineral makeup's glosses look almost identical to MAc's packing, so you're probably right that they're not imitating, it's just probably the cheapest packaging option.

Emerald Blaze is so gorgeous.

Nice haul!

MakeupByRenRen said...

wow...modern basics is freaking awesome...i love those palettes!

Tracy said...

Nice hauls! It's too bad Modern Basic only wholesales. Their makeup looks really great. Do you know of any companies that sell their products?

ainstein said...

Wow nice haul! Glad u had fun up in frisco =) i love the blush palettes too bad they're gone. How do you like the mascara?

Bombchell said...

Mayra said...

almaberber1 said...

Hey Vanessa long time no talk!!!! I just wanted to ask you a quick question. Were the eyeshadow palettes already made or you picked out the colors? THanks

Fabu-less Beauty said...

MB looks exactly like MAC, except the name on the label. Can you buy modern basic makeup in retail stores or wholesale only?

ladystarr said...

nice haul! i neeed to get me some palettes!

babysaffron said...

i love the nude.....

Awesome haul! So, how did the Blinc Mascara work for you? Did you like it? I bought it for $24, almost 2years ago. Used it a couple of time and realize, it doesn't hold my curl or volumize my lashes, so it went in the trash =( Of course if has lasting waterproof power and probably would be gorgeous if your lashes are naturally full, thick and curly. It works for diff. people!

You make me wish I lived in Cali, traveling to these events would be so much easier. Thanks for sharing you haul!!

I'm really loving the Emerald Blaze eyeliner! :)

Cheeky Monkey said...

Fabulous haul! Those look like great products. Bummed they are not available to the general public. I have seen some spa brands that look like they may be relabels of these but $$$$.

Vanessa said...

Hi Alma! The colors are already in the palettes I didn't have to pick them out!

Diana said...

Nessa, where can i get those palettes?? :h
