Haul: MAC Modern Mandarin

Yesterday Mr. Postman stopped by with another package from Britique, my fourth order from them, this one ordered during Easter. It contained a gorgeous blush, M·A·C Modern Mandarin from Trés Cheek, which was a gift from my sweet fiancé! During Easter Britique offered a coupon code for a goodie bag worth 179,- NOK or about $30 with any order over 100,- NOK, which I chose to take advantage of since I was already placing the order. And I'm very pleased indeed with the two items I received for free: M·A·C Vestral White Nail Polish from Hello Kitty, and Dermalogica® Clean Start™ Smart Mouth Lip Shine.


Review: Britique.com

In the latter part of February I decided to place my very first order with Britique, a store I've seen promoted by several other bloggers before. I'm naturally skeptical of new online store, especially when they sell makeup - and more importantly M·A·C. From being a makeup addict for almost four years now I've learned thing or two about counterfeit items, and I know how to tell an authentic item from a counterfeit one. That being said, those who counterfeit items always make better and better copies, so never be too sure unless you've purchased your item(s) through a certified retailer. There are online stores out there I personally would never use, and there are stores I don't need to think twice about using, but it's healthy to be a little critical - and with eBay you can almost never know for sure.
