Unboxing: BH Cosmetics Mini Haul

Remember my post about the BH Cosmetics promo? I got what I ordered online around two weeks ago but something else was needed to be announced urgently that day (aka the Too Faced Sale post) so this unboxing has been moved today.

BH Cosmetics has been popular for some time now in YouTube and several blogs. They are affordable and offer a lot of options especially with their eyeshadow palettes. So when they offered free shipping and free palette, it was time for me to board the ship!


    

Special Occasion 39 Color Eyeshadow & Blush Palette

          
I am in love with this palette! The blush palette already has highlighter and bronzer. The blushes are all pigmented and wearable.

The eyeshadow portion has matte and shimmer. I can see myself creating different looks out of these, from daytime to nighttime make-up.

First Edition – 120 Eyeshadow Palette

    

1 out of 120 was broken
        
Honestly, I was overwhelmed with all these colors! Some of them quite look alike but I haven’t tried them yet so I will leave my final judgment on a later post, with swatches and make-up looks.

The Mystery Eyeshadow Palette: BH Party Girl After Hours

I intentionally did not open this yet. I checked the YouTube first and images online. I think the Special Occasion will suffice so I’m thinking of giving this to my niece.

The Pocket Damage


Not so damaging at all…

So that’s my first BH Cosmetics haul. I will try to post their swatches and some looks that an eyeshadow noob like me can cook up. πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

Unboxing: MAC Wash & Dry Lipstick and Blush

If you’ve seen my previous post where I was announcing giddily the new MAC Wash & Dry collection, it was actually my first time to order MAC products online. I ordered online last Friday so for the last three days, I was, to say the least, restless

The feels…

Alas! It arrived today, on a Tuesday. There’s a mysterious black box right outside my door… And a lot more blackness when you open it.

 

Black is the new Black

I only ordered two products out of the collection. One was a lipstick, that is already sold out online, and the other one is a blush, my first ever MAC blush. Total pocket damage: $44.52 ($2.52 tax).

The Packaging

The tricolor packaging reminds me of their old collection, the Proenza Schouler.

I find the packaging ADORABLE! The green, orange and gold combo of the MAC Wash & Dry collection reminds me of watching the sunset on a beach.

The Lipstick

The lipstick, Tumble Dry, costs $17.50USD.

    

MAC Wash & Dry lipstick in Tumble Dry is a lustre. I am not a fan of MAC lustre lipsticks. I am more of a satin-matte-amplified kind of a MAC girl. But the color of the lipstick looked intriguing online and I don’t have this particular shade yet. I knew that initially I will be disappointed. But in the spirit of “everything is a first time”, I will try to wear this proudly and with an open-mind. It smells like butter and is totally hydrating to the lips so I guess I’m starting to look at it with a glass half-full.

The Blush

The Hipness blush retails at $24.50USD.

No need to look at the glass half full or half empty. The glass is FULL and OVERFLOWING! I am in L❀️VE with this blush. It has a subtle gold shimmer that is not at all offensive. It is outrageously pigmented that even after a few minutes of rubbing it off, the swatch on my arm is still visible.

Overall

I should have gotten more from the collection, seriously. Especially the lipstick, I should have purchased all four! πŸ˜‚

It will launch in stores on May 21, 2015. But you can easily go to MAC’s website to check this new collection.

Email Alert: MΒ·AΒ·C Wash & Dry – The Laundromat is Open for Business!

I just received an exciting email a few hours ago about the new collection of MAC (Make-Up Art Cosmetics).

It is colorful and vivacious! Gotta have some!

The packaging is a wonderful reminder of summer! Give me some piΓ±a colada, please!

I try to restrain myself, aka, my credit card so I ONLY ordered two products. It was a total of $44.52 inclusive of tax and without shipping fee (jump high!).

The other shades are Creme d’Nude (which was sold out after a few minutes, gah!), Morange and Steam Heat.

I feel ecstatic with this! I haven’t bought any Mac blush yet and I’m dying to have one. The other shade of the blush is Crisp Whites. Cute name, isn’t it!

I have disappointed myself before for waiting for some time to purchase limited edition MAC products. This time around, I went ahead and dived in before they all got sold out. I don’t want to be left washed out and dried again, eh.

The Mac Wash & Dry collection will be available in stores on May 21, 2015.

Ready for make-up shopping?!

Don’t Leave Me Blushing πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜

I was beyond excited when I finally got my Tarte blushes! I bought it thru my trusted online seller mycalishopper (instagram) by simply giving the url to her.

I had always wanted to try Tarte blushes because they are always part of “The Best” or “The Must-Haves” on most of the beauty checklists that I have read online. So the only way to satisfy my curiosity is to buy an Amazonian clay blush. Not just one, but a set of 3 holiday exclusive blushes.

This set of blushes are smaller than the regular-sized Amazonian Clay blushes. But I like the colors and they are really pigmented! I also love the fact that they included a brush! Love love love ❀️

I use honored for contouring, treasured if I’m wearing a bright or dark lipstick but if I’m wearing something coral or nude on my lips, I prefer using the imagined blush.

Would love to try other Tarte blushes soon!
