Haul: Nordstrom, Stila and eBay

One should think I'd be done shopping for a while after London, but no. Mid-month means an account refill, and money equals the joy of online shopping! ..to a certain extent of course, paying my debts, bills and other expenses always come first.


  • M·A·C Crushed Metallic Pigment in "Butterfly Party"
  • M·A·C Crushed Metallic Pigment in "Aloha"
  • M·A·C Eye Shadow x4 in "Call Me Bubbles"
  • Tweezerman ProCurl Lash Curler

For the first time in a long while I found something I really wanted from M·A·C: Crushed Metallic Pigment in "Butterfly Party" and "Aloha" from the M·A·C Vera collection, and the "Call Me Bubbles" quad from Shop M·A·C. When I first started out as an innocent little M·A·C enthusiast a few years back I might have picked up all three quads in this collection, but now I feel like it's pointless and a waste to pick up a quad for one or two colors. "Call Me Bubbles" was the only quad I could picture myself using, and it's perfect for springtime. Interesting enough I didn't feel like any of the lipsticks were worth going bananas over, although I did like "Runaway Red" - but seeing as it's a blue-based red I figured I'd leave it be. After seeing a lot of swatches of the "Shop & Drop" quad I'm leaning towards picking it up while it's still available as it's said to have wonderful pigmentation, and.. it's purple, need I say more?

MAC Vera: Butterfly Party and Aloha Crushed Metallic Pigment

I already own a few different lash curlers, but I haven't really found one that I love. I'm lemming the infamous lash curler from Shu Uemura I was planning on getting in Paris last summer. Unfortunately it was quite expensive there, and I didn't feel like spending €40 on a lash curler. So I decided to try out the one from Tweezerman instead. I just realized that these two lash curlers cost exactly the same in the US, so I might as well have gotten the Shu Uemura one.. but I already placed the order. Do your research people, preferably before ordering, it might turn out to be the intelligent thing to do!
