First major MAC haul!!

Why hello there my lovely followers!!

I'm nearing my first 100 followers and am getting really excited about it!! In the beginning I only signed up so I could comment and follow other bloggers. I never thought I'd get a dozen followers much less 100!! I plan to do a giveaway when I reach the big 1-0-0 but I don't exactly know to get. Does anyone have any suggestions for prizes?

Well let the MAC haulness begin!! I purchased all these from Nikki at discount prices :-)

MAC Power Blush in "Well Dressed"

Not just my first MAC blush but my first blush ever. I thought that this was one of the prettiest shade ever so I bought it right away... he he he

MAC eyeshadows (from left to right)

01. Satellite Dreams
02. Woodwinked
03. Hush
04. Electra
05. Stars N' Rockets

At the time I only had enough money to purchase a few of these. So it was REALLY hard settling on colors that I really liked AND I thought were flexible in creating several looks I'd like.

MAC Studio Fix Powder plus Foundation:

Since I'll be trying out the foll coverage liquid foundation like from Revlon and MAC. I also wanted to try this type as well. Again you may have to click on this image to get a better look at it :-)

The nice little note Nikki left for me. Thanks a lot Nikki!!

My first drugstore haul!!

These are a few items I purchased about 6 six weeks ago. I also have a big MAC haul coming soon and then I'll have at least one more haul after that!

So here are the goodies!!

Picture of everything all together:

Revlon ColorStay Foundation in Buff:

I've heard so many great things about this foundation. Some say that it's a cheaper version of Mac's Studio fix fluid, and so I definitely wanted this to be one of the first foundations to try out! My good friend Aleksis was the one who actually recommended the shade Buff, because she said that I have almost the exact same skin tone as her :-)

Revlon Colorstay Mineral Lipglaze - in Eternal Bossom:

The color of this lipgloss is amazing. I first saw a beautiful blogger named KimberDoll wear it and said to myself I so gotta try it out. I don't know KimberDoll too well but she does good FOTD's and has great taste!

Covergirl Perfect Point Plus:

Eyeliner is one of the few remaining things I haven't closely looked over. I'm not sure about the quality of this. I kinda sorta randomly picked this one out and I bought it at drugstore dot com. It was listed as one of the best selling so I assumed that it was a good one. Have any of you tried out this eyeliner before??

L'Oreal Voluminous non-waterproof Mascara:

This mascara does wonders for one's eyelashes. It really does make them look super long and pretty! I like how this one is non-water proof so that way I can fully remove it with ease. It first got my attention when I started following Karen's blog. She is very gorgeous, she does some amazing eye makeup looks and has a great sense of fashion. I recommend you follow her blog too if you haven't already!!1

Almay Oil-Free eye makeup Remover pads:

This is labeled as being oil-free and hypoallergenic which is great since my face tends to get really oily and I have very bad allergies. I'm not sure how well this will work but I'll do a review after I use it a few times. So which makeup removers are really good? Which ones do you prefer to use?

That's it for now. I have some more really good hauls to come in the near future. See ya later my beautiful followers!!

Swap n' Sale (my experience so far)

This blog is a question to all of my followers. How many of you ladies participated in these swap and sale pages from websites such as, makeupalley, etc?

Some of the makeup products I've been looking for as of late have been hard-to-find items that have been discontinued. After I do indeed find some of these items in the swap n' sale sections. I find it quite irritating to get my hopes up, only to be later disappointed because the other person goes *poof* and isn't around to complete the sale.

In fact, the last person I tried to purchase from wrote a VERY LONG story about how she had to sell off most of her collection in order to help pay her student loans. I figured that this would be a person much more willing to follow thru on selling/trading. But I was wrong and now she suddenly is nowhere to be found either. And it's not like I said anything to turn her off. All the conversation really consisted of was me asking if the item was still for sale, her saying yes, and then offering to pay for the price she was offering. That was 3 days ago... and haven't heard anything back.

Anyways it may sound like I'm ranting over nothing but this has been going on for about a week now. It's especially frustrating when it comes to rare items that I've discovered.

If you're somebody posting your items up for sale, then suddenly change your mind about wanting to sell. At least have the courtesy to tell the person know because letting a person hang like that is very rude in my opinion.

So is this how it usually goes in the swap/sale sections? Or am I just having some really bad luck?


I am not affiliated with any of these companies mentioned. All of the products were purchased by me unless stated otherwise in an individual blog. My opinions are not influenced in anyway.
