I Have Too Much Makeup. Said No One. Ever.

The title of this post is based on the meme that I have been seeing all over instagram for the past few months.

I can relate. I get it. I absolutely agree! My husband said I have too much lipsticks. I am like, “what are you talking about?” 😅

Since I was in hiatus all throughout summer, this will be my “Hello, October! Hi, Fall!” to everyone. Let me show you all the make-up I bought when I wasn’t blogging (that I can remember, ha!). They are not a lot but I like the feeling of the sudden euphoria when I was buying them. 😍

I’m Lady Echeboreche. I’m a makeup addict.

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! 😂

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: M·A·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 piña 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?!

The Perfect Solution: Mac Haul

A few days before my wedding, I was crying because my skin was horrible. It was dry, flaky, red, wrinkly and my makeup looks chalky when applied.

I told my fiancé (then) to move the wedding date for another month so that my skin can finally adjust to the cold weather.

But he had a better solution. He said he’ll buy me new makeup.

I really thought an angel was rocking her harp when I heard MAKE-UP

So a day before the wedding, we went to Macy’s and went straight ahead to the Mac counter.

Prior to that day, I have always loved Mac. I tried their lipsticks, eyeshadows and mascara before. But I always want to know my foundation shade. The Mac consultant said I’m NC30 for my foundation and Medium Plus for my powder. She used a Moisture Infusion Serum Primer together with the Mineralize Moisture SPF15 Foundation. She tapped a bit of Mineralize Skinfinish Powder on my t-zone then spritzed Charged Water all over my face.

Magic! No redness. No chalkiness. I was ready to get married!

My husband said that I could buy everything that was used on me. (🎶Angels we have heard on high🎶) 

The consultant said that I should also try their brush cleaner.

LOVE LOVE LOVE
The damage has been done
A month after the purchase, I returned the brush cleaner because it didn’t seem to work when I used it for the first time. Lesson: always keep your receipts.

Here what’s left from my Mac haul, approximately 2 months after the purchase with a bit of my two cents.

The Mac consultant used a spritzer to put this on my face. I was disappointed that it only has a regular lotion-like hole.
I would probably love it, and not just like it, if it has a sponge/poof applicator for an easier on-the-go application
I like the 190 brush because it has the right kind of softness and firmness needed to easily apply a foundation. However, I don’t like the 150 brush because it sheds a lot. Just imagine the awkward conversation you have to make when someone has noticed a small black hair-like on your face!
My new holy grail! It’s the right kind of shade and I don’t look too made-up
Any foundation becomes better when you use this
What’s your favorite Mac product?

What’s in your make-up kit?

The evolution of my make-up kit all started with simply bringing baby powder when I was in grade school… Then came the lip gloss in high school… Then lipstick when I turned 18…

Now that I’m at the “right” age *wink*, here’s my make-up kit that I bring everyday at work:

❤️ Stella & Dot pouch (a gift)

20131023-092652.jpg

20131023-092747.jpg
Isn’t this a good way to start your day?

20131023-092914.jpg
So cute, right? Just answer “hey!!!” as you raise your hands in the air before you put on your make-up (not that I do that *ehem*)

So what’s inside this pouch?

❤️ Human Nature Mineral Powder in Orient Pearl
– I buy a lot of Human Nature products because they don’t have harmful ingredients, are cruelty-free and are proudly made in the Philippines

20131023-093617.jpg

❤️ Urban Decay De-Slick Mattifying Powder
– I use it mostly as a mirror because it is a lot bigger than my HN powder and I love the packaging

20131023-093758.jpg

❤️ 3 concealers
1) Mary Kay concealer/corrector in Ivory 1
2) Maybelline BB Stick (that I use as a concealer) in 01 Fresh – I don’t like the smell of the product on the tube but that smell disappears as soon as you apply it to your face and it goes on smoothly due to its powdery finish
3) Max Factor Pan Foundation (as a concealer) in Olive 30

20131023-094503.jpg

❤️ 2 Powder Blush
1) Maybelline Cheeky Glow in Peachy Sweetie
2) Human Nature Mineral Blush in Pink Bloom

20131023-094659.jpg
It takes 2-3 reapplication for the HN blush to show color as it is not too pigmented for my skin tone. I’m currently searching for a new blush.

20131023-095022.jpg

❤️ Revlon Eyelash Curler
– my ever dependable curler that I have to let go soon (huhuhu)… I’m just waiting for the Shu Uemura eyelash curler that I recently ordered (woohoo!)

20131023-095427.jpg

❤️ 2 eyeliners
1) Maybelline HyperSharp Liner (liquid) – that I use for my upper lid
2) Maybelline master liner (pencil) – that I use for my lower lid but I’m still getting the hang of it because I’m used to liquid eyeliner

20131023-095811.jpg

❤️ 3 mascaras
1) Maybelline The Falsies
2) Maybelline The Rocket
3) Benefit They’re Real

20131023-100008.jpg

20131023-100018.jpg

❤️ Cover Girl Pencil Crayon for the eyebrows (Please see my pseudo review on this article)

20131023-100420.jpg

❤️ 2 lip balm
1) Etude Kissful Lip Care in Cherry
2) Maybelline Baby Lips in Neon Rose

20131023-100725.jpg

20131023-100733.jpg

❤️ 9 lippies
1) Human Nature in Lucky In Love
2) Mary Kay in Caramel Toffee
3) Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede in Fashionista
4) Maybelline in Coral Crush
5) Nyx in Monte Carlo
6) Nyx in Addis Ababa
7) Mac Mattene Lipstick in Eden Rouge
8) Mac Lustre in Marquis D’
9) Mac Retro Matte in Riri Woo

20131023-101407.jpg
Please bear with me as I’m a noob in making lipstick swatches. I made several attempts and most of them looked like I had a bad case of hives on my arm. Here’s the most “decent” of them all:

20131023-102051.jpg

❤️ Hello Kitty lip gloss
– that I don’t use. It’s cute, nuff said 😊
