It's Haul Time Again!


It has been a while since my last haul and I had quite a few items to cover so in order to not bore everyone to death I had to cut out some lashes and the Urban Decay Naked Palette.

The first items I talk about are my new MAC lip products. I purchased a few of them from a CCS in Washington state and the others from my MAC Pro store. I purchased Electric Edge Lipglass, Supreme Lipglass, 3N Lipglass, Little VI Lustreglass, Luscious Spark Dazzleglass, Ban This Lipglass, Go For It Lipstick, Smash Hit Dazzle Lipstick.

Swatches are on my husband as it was easier for me to photograph his arm, as opposed to photographing my arm (he had to make it look masculine). :)


I also purchased two new blushes, which I rarely do. I purchased the popular Nars Orgasm, which is a pink blush with gold sparkle. I am not too impressed with Nars products, including this one. I decided that I do not like blushes with sparkle because they emphasize my pores more than I would like. While pretty in the pan, I probably will not wear it often. I also purchased MAC's Coygirl blush. I love this matte mauve colour! It adds a little colour to my cheeks and it is a perfect replacement for my favourite Paula's Choice Healthy Blush when it runs out!

I picked up a few of MAC's Pro Chromalines, Rich Purple and Process Magenta. They are more like Paintpots than Fluidlines and they make excellent bases. At my local theatrical makeup supply store, StudioFX, I purchased a generic brand Chromacolor in a chartreuse colour, which is essentially exactly the same as a Chromaline. It's half the price with my discount and has 3g more product.


I purchased several eyeshadows from the Pro store and the CCS. I purchased Sassy Grass, Shock-a-holic, Indian Ink and Vibrant Grape. I also swatched MUFE #92 to show how it compares to Shock-a-holic. Shock-a-holic may look similar in the pan but it applies more red and less vibrant. Still a beautiful colour though.

MAC Shadows

I placed an order online for a few of the popular Sugarpill shadows. I ordered three, Poison Plum, Dollipop and Love +. I love the colours and I am sure that I will get a lot of use out of them. Amy/Shrinkle personally signed the receipt and included a sticker, and two business cards.  I swatched the colours next to similar colours that I already had.

The last items I swatched were my NFU Oh 51 & 52 nail polishes!! Beautiful! They are iridescent polishes with metalic flakes in them. They are much prettier than I could capture in my photos and I should have polished all my nails in the same colour, but I was trying to save time...I will remember next time! I purchased them form
