Right after the M.A.C Private Sale, i told myself no more hauling and put myself on a 6 months ban, and maybe Project 10 Pan. I shall not be tempted by ANY upcoming M.A.C L.E. collection, no matter how cute the packaging is. Well, obviously i failed. because this is one collection I am really looking forward to. WHY? Because STEREO ROSE is finally being promoted!! Such a pity to those who paid over hundreds of dollars for it on eBay. Kinda interested in some of the blushers. Cant help it. I'm a sucker for cheek (and lip) products.

Oooo, I cant wait! Thank goodness the collection will only be launched in August. So my 6 months ban would be over by then. right?

Tag: What Was Your First M.A.C Purchase?

I thought this was a pretty interesting tag. so here goes..

My first M.A.C purchase(s) would be back in Nov/Dec 2008 and I got them at M.A.C Jusco, JB. Got myself the Studio Fix Powder Foundation because my sister got one. I asked the MA (which was/is a male) for a nude shade & he recommended me this combo - Viva Glam II lipstick & Beaux Lustreglass.

I've already panned out the foundation, but only recently. That took me a year & a half to clean it out. Actually, no. I've still got some left few weeks ago but my sister dropped my compact and smashed what's left of the foundation. My lipstick is only half done & I've been using it every single time I go out just so that I could finish it quickly. Sadly though, I lost my lustreglass. It was my favourite because it went so well with Viva Glam II lipstick. And unlike the lipglass, lustreglass has a brush applicator and less sticky. so that's a plus point.

I wasnt addicted YET after my first purchase. What got me M.A.C-crazy was the Hello Kitty Collection in Feb 2009. It started there and I just couldnt stop. Trying to control my M.A.C purchases for now. No more hauling after that mega private sale.

Collective Haul!

So much make-up in just two months.. I don't even know where to start! There were quite a few IRRESISTABLE sales going on the past few weeks. Some of which I've participate in are the NYX Cosmetics Going Bananas $1.00 Sale, My Red House/MUACosmetics Fool's Quest $1.00 Sale and the most recent one is obviouslt the M.A.C Private Sale. Looking at the picture above, I cant believe I've spent soooooooo much just on cosmetics. This gotta stop.
So what i got..

NYX Cosmetics
Fabulous Lashes (EL104 & EL 131)
Chrome Eyeshadows (Penny, Space, Barely There & Red)
& Single Eyeshadow (Wildflower)

I got some lipsticks too but I've already sold them because I realised I just dont need & will never use them.

My Red House/MUACosmetics
Mineral Matte Blush (Rose Bud & Hush Pink)
Dimensional Shadow (Blackened Jewel)
& Liquid Lustre (Goldie Luxe)

Like the other OnSugarettes, I got more stuffs but there were out-of-stock. I was a tad disappointed at first. Then i figured money saved anyway. The haul below makes up for it, even though you can never beat the price.

M.AC, Oh M.A.C! It's crazy what people can do just to get their hands on some M.A.C (me included!). I guess everyone would already know by now how crazy it was at the M.A.C Private Sale last Friday. I reached the EL office at about 8.15am with my friend, Sery (Shoutout: Thanks, babe, for the tickets. Appreciate it much!). The first person I recognised was Diana (AdoreBeauty) & Sarah (FacesBySarah). Little did I know there was already a loooooong queue formed (and still forming). But thanks to Dyan (IAmDyan), I managed to jump half the queue. No need for me to explain the situation once the door opens. Girls turned into piranhas.

Put aside all the dramas in that room, I walked out happy with my purchase. Did some damage -$166 to be exact- to my account, but it's not as crazy compared to the rest. The stuffs I got are..

All 3 Baroque Budoir Dazzleglassed (The Lap of Luxury -sister's-, Preciousness & d'Nouveau)
Baroque Budoir Lipsticks (Baroque Budoir & Treasured - wish i got 2 Treasured instead of the BB one.)
Dazzleglass Creme (My Favourite Pink)
Kohl Power Eye Pencil (Feline)
MSF (Cheeky Bronze)
Hocus Focus Colorful Face Kit
Nail Lacquer (Blissed Out -sister's)
Powder Blush (Notable -friend's)

And just to fill up the bag, I included Viva Glam Gaga & Ever Hip l/s from the Give Me Liberty of London collection that I got recently. Enough make-up hauling for now. I swear I am NOT gonna purchase anymore make-up within the next six months. Except for foundation, which is seriously running out right now. Imagine how much I would have saved if i wasnt so much of a make-up junkie.................
