You are quite the addiction, MAC

So I ran to my MAC counter @ Nordies and had two lovely MUA's (Marquia, Zara) help me, one of which is the manager, sadly they know me by face now! I ran there for the release of warm & cozy (which hasn't been receiving much love from many). They were so busy, there were so many people there and it didn't feel like they were there for the new release, they were just shopping in general! So here's what I picked up

Comfort MSF on the left, By Candlelight MSF on the right.

Lovelorn on the left, Hue on the right

I wasn't going to pick up Comfort but I was convinced to use it as contour!

I picked up Shroom simply b/c it's widely raved about, let's see how I feel about it.

I picked this up after I complained that my paint pots were creasing
DSC_0409
I only picked this up b/c I wanted a dazzleglass (it's my first MAC gloss purchase)

So far I love everything, I'm only unsure about Shroom, not sure how I like it so far "/
Update - I will do swatches of all these items ASAP! I just need the right lighting! But I promise to post them! :)
Anyone pick up anything from the Warm & Cozy Collection?

Nice haul. I haven't picked up any thing from that collection, but I did place an order the other day for some other items.

Can I see a swatch of Hue on your lips? :)

I love that the MAC artists know you by face! Ha ha ha!

I am so jealous of your collection! How do you like Shroom? Did the paint cream work out for you?

Baby Sparks has been on my wish list forever! And now, thanks to you, so are both of those lipsticks! :P

P. S. Your thumbnail picture is gorgeous!

@ Hollywood - I have absolutely fallen in love with Comfort! Perfect contour/bronzer! I'm sorry boo :( I hope you come back to the states soon and pick up 2!
@ sharpieunited - Thank you ;-) I love knowing them too, I love the customer service @ Nordies!
@ Rai - Thanks!! I can't wait to see your haul, I always enjoy your posts! You will get a swatch my dear :)
@ Tammy - I'll get you a look of Shroom with and without a base on my eyelids :)
@ xLovelyMakeupx - You will def get swatches on my tiny lips :) I looooove swatches that are used where they're actually supposed to be used!
@ The Beauty In Me - You are so right, I end up giving it away to my friends and mom, they have no problem accepting makeup from me, but I feel you, I have a few items that are expired, but that's b/c I didn't really love the items, so far I love the ones from this haul :)
@ MW - Thank you ;-)
@ Katrina - Hue is amazing, I've used it everyday and I've retouched after drinks and food throughout the day, lol. Does it tend to sell out?
@ Shifa - Thank you!!! Exactly, feels like Shroom isn't pigmented enough for my skin tone (NW30). DITTO! I'll let you know when I find the perfect base color ;-) **You are welcome, btw!**
@ KayCee - Do you know your MAC color? I'm NW30. I will look into your colors when I go back to Nordies this week :) I hope you get Hue, it should be in everyone's collection!
@ Taylor @ Jimmy Choos and a Baby Too - I hope to see a post on your next visit to MAC!
@ myShopping bag - Thank you, hun!
@ Alyssa is the Queen - Hue, agreed, Shroom, not feeling it right now, but I can't rule it out just yet, I'm gonna try it with a different base :)
@ Nati - Gracias!! me alegro!!!
@ Nicole - I fell in love with Lovelorn IMMEDIATELY @ the MAC counter, lol. I hope to see a post if you get it ;-) Thanks, hun!
@ Kate Gene - Yeah, they even remember what I've already bought! It's kinda creepy, lol.

Not so sure about shroom, every time I've used it I was in a supreme rush, so I should take my time to use it (and with a base...and actually remember what I used, lol, then mayyyybe take a pic of before and after...I always forget the before, LOL)

I did not expect to leave with a gloss, but I picked one, thought I loved it, then I realized it was too orangey/bronzey, so Marquia (the mgr) recommended Baby Sparks, I was sooo sold!

Please keep these 2 lippies on your wishlist, they simply are fabulous, I've used em both on a daily (esp Hue) Since it's like 15 degrees here...I have no fear to keep them in my coat pocket and melting, lol.

Thank you, boo!

@ yvonne - Thank you :) Your first??? Do you love Shroom and what MAc color are you (if you know), it helps me gauge =/
@ Juliana - Thank you! I honestly NEVER thought more than 8 ppl would follow me...and I always knew the 8 that followed (friends) never really read my blog, they did it to make me feel better, ROFL! I am a follower, hun! You have no idea how much I gaze at my rings in elevators, I forget to get off sometimes! LMBO!

xoxo

Thanks for all the lovely comments, bellas!!

@ Kate Gene - I LOVE LOVE LOVE the paint!!! I need to use it under my ELF Studio line e/s that crease like mad!!! I'm talking less than 2 hours and they're creasin and the color has faded! grrrr

Kate Gene said...

Ooh, that's really good to know! I seriously use Cover Girl foundation as my base. (I don't wear foundation on my face, but I do on my eyes. That's not weird or anything. Ha!) I don't have any problems with it creasing, but I did when I used NYX's base.

That sucks about the ELF shadow! I was JUST looking online at some! Guess I'll skip it, just to be safe!

Ooolala great haul!! Can't wait to see swatches!! :)
