This is a mini collective haul which I got from various sources!
Firstly, I have the remaining items from In the Groove Collection haul which I ordered with Michelle (icefrost-sprees!). They are Stereo Rose msf and In the Groove eyeshadow. If you remember, I already bought Stereo Rose from when it was released in our stores, so this is an extra, which I will be giving to my sister. As for the eyeshadow In the Groove, I got it because the colors go so well together, and also, it is the name of the collection.
Then, I also got MAC Face and Body foundation. I am not really sure which is my shade, so I went with my gut instinct and picked N1, which thankfully, turned out to be a great match for my skin tone. I used it today, and I must say I am liking it so far. It is obviously premature to give any raving reports at this point in time, so do stay tuned for my review of this foundation. I got this foundation from another MAC spree with Fatin, (twitter _nytaff, or eyelashwish) Thanks to Dyan for giving us the heads up on this spree! :)
Shan't go into all the details of each item, since I haven't really got to play with them yet... shall update when I use them in LOTD or in review entries.
Next, are a couple of items which Amy (purplio) got for me when she went to Hong Kong recently. Can we say, we are waiting to see her haul entry and holiday report?? LOL.
I read about her tweets about the max factor foundation which is rather raved about, so I just told her to get one for me, since we are in the same foundation shade. She also gave me a sample of the NARS Sheer Matte foundation! :) And then we have the NARS Blush in Lustre, which was what the NARS MA used on me when I was at the NARS counter... but I didn't get it at then. It is a light bronzey goldy pink color -- "sheer golden apricot" -- which is what the website describes it as. So, many thanks to Amy for the help!
Let's look at some swatches:
I think you can see the difference in textures of both foundations..... and while the MAC foundation looks darker, it is so sheer, it just blends into my skintone seamlessly.
Shall show this off in a LOTD over the weekend!
And I almost forgot, I also bought from Michelle this MAC nail polish in Dry Martini (Khaki olive green), when she was twittering about selling it away. This is from the MAC Fall 2009 Jin Soon Choi collection.
Speaking of twitter, everyone should realise there is a whole active world of economy, shopping, knowledge sharing going on in twitter world! Just last night, I was casually twittering about "who wants to buy eyeko nail polish, I want to buy, but want to get free intl shipping" and almost immediately got response, and maybe 821938918903 tweets and 15 minutes later, I placed orders at the eyeko website for ELEVEN sets of nail polishes from among us, enough for me to put in 3 separate orders to qualify for free international shipping. That's kind of amazing!!! So it pays to follow us on twitter (and the pun on PAY is intended) because some of my tweet buddies were like, "here I am laying here eating/ resting/ and what have I just done, shopped???" that was so funny, and you know who you are! :p
And lastly, the NARS blush.
P/S: Just want to also say big THANKS to Michelle for gifting me this cute zebra printzzzz purse!! She really didn't have to, and I thank you very much!
That's about it, and I hope you enjoyed this mini haul entry!
Thanks for looking~
