Back 2 MAC & My First 15 Pan MAC Palette

I finally got really fed up with going through my bin of single eyeshadows and duos, trios, quads, quints etc etc so I went on a depotting fest on Saturday



I finally had the chance to head out to MAC today with my guyfriend (what a trooper) and I picked up:

1)Amplified Lipstick in Impassioned


2)Amplified Lipstick in Chatterbox


So this is my 15 pan MAC Palette filled! (Also contains a Sephora Shadow and a Urban Decay Shadow)



And this is my other MAC Palette with non- MAC depots:


It`s not as pretty :(

Chicago Victoria's Secret Presents

My mom and dad went away for the weekend for my mom's conference in Chicago and my dad just came home (they're coming home on different days because of work schedule) and brought home some presents my mom had got for me from Victoria's Secret. Most of the stuff we have in Canada but my mom likes a good sale so got me:

1) Pretty in Pink Body Mist
2) Pretty in Pink Bath and Shower Cream
3) Appletini Body Souffle
4) Enchanted Aooke Body Butter (
I loooove things that smell like apple.. I`m obsessed)
5)A bonus with purchase:
Sample of John Freida Brilliant Brunette liquid shine Illuminating Shampoo which is actually really hard to find in Canada. (not the regular formulation, the liquid shine illuminating formulation)

And that`s what I got `from my dad` from Chicago :)

I Love "Presents" in the Mail

So I just went to my mailbox and got my Ebay haul from a while ago. Like I won it 30 days ago and paid by E-cheque so it took forevvvver to come here but I love this seller (thehouseofmanypurrs) because she always includes extras :)
So this is what I got:



So the majority of the stuff I got isn't readily available in Canada so I'l super excited to try these out!
1) 2 Tubes of Almay Pure Blends Foundation in Beige.
These were in a lot from this seller for like $3 for the two of them so I picked them up because I've seen this foundation in stores and never purchased it because of the price tag is a little high for something that I predict is going to work like a tinted moisterizer at a drugstore.
It smells lovely and apparently it's over 95% natural, which seems nice :)
It's strange that it says frangrance free because my tubes have this amazing smell to them.. like tea :)
AHA! They're actually two different formulations. One has SPF and a scent and the other doesn't. Mystery solved! Not a good match for right now but I'll mix them with my Black Radiance until I can use the Balck Radiance by itself at the end of the summer.
2) Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Liquid Makeup SPF 20 in Natural Beige
So this comes with a brush head on top which I'm not to fond of and the foundation smells like sunscreen a little and is a bit sheer for my liking BUT it makes my skin feel really really soft to the touch and has a nice cooling effect on my face :)
Sooo I'd probably wear this one for like a day at the beach or if I was going for a swim. I could easily just apply the foundation from the brush to my hand and then use a concealer.
3) Rimmel Lasting Finish Mineral Powder Foundation in Classic Beige
I haven't seen this in drugstores in Canada and i looove powders with the built-in puff ontop because it always gives me and even coverage ontop of liquid foundation :) Sooo super excited to try this. :)

4) FREE GIFT! YAAAAY Black Opal Lipgloss Duo in Sugar Plum. Nice dark plum colour and white/clear sparkly lipgloss on the other side :) Can't complain about a free gift :)


Bonus pictures of the ADORABLE Quo tweezers I got at Shoppers on sale from $8.00 to $2.00 :)

They have pictures of little ladies on them in dresses.. sooo cute :) There were also ones with shoes and bags but I thought these ones were the cutest and the tension in the grip is amazing :)



My Current Nail Polish Collection

So I'm pretty sure I'm one of those people that like the idea of something more than actually using it. For example, I love nailpolish but I suck at painting my nails and and can't stop biting them for the life of me. So most of these nailpolishes I don't really use except for the odd occasion when I can apply them without failing horribly.
I really enjoy my Nicole by OPI. The names are adorable and I find that the quality is almost on par with OPI for usually way cheaper. Plus this seems to always be on sale which is a major plus. I don't think I ever paid full price on any of my more expensive nailpolishes :P

Okay so without further delay, these are my OPI and Nicole Polishes:


These are my random other "nicer" nailpolishes


And these are some random drugstore polishes and a Zoya that I love the colour in the bottle but not on my nails :(


And more random low end polishes :)


See? So not that much :) But then again I hate painting my nails so I guess it is a lot :(

Post coming soon: my depotting adventure with my MAC shadows, when I can drag my butt to MAC to get freeeee stuffff and my finished 15 pan palette and my not-so-pretty non-MAC depot palette.

Small haul at PharmaPlus

Hey guys!
So I took a break today by heading out to my local PharmaPlus
(having three and two Shoppers within walking distance is so dangerous)
and I thought I would just share some random stuff I picked up

I purchased:
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind in Pure Beige (Medium 2) because it looks like they're discontinuing it. The prices were all slashed down to $3.50 or something. So I picked up this shade for winter/ fall because I'd already bought Honey the previous week at the same price for summer. (I buy a lot of foundations, I'll post a thing on my collection/ makeup storage soon/ when I have time to re-take some updated photos)
Nicole by OPI Holiday nail polish in Bonfired Up! I'm such a sucker for reds and my Pharmaplus recently has been having the holiday Nicole polishes for $5.95 (perm. line is usually $9.99) and two weeks ago I got a coupon for $2.00 off OPI and Nicole so I bought a bunch then. This color is like a basic, perfect red. I was debating between this one and another but the other was this goldy, sheer colour that was kind of a dupe for one of my MAC polishes that I NEVER use /:

And finally my fav BAN scent was on sale and summer is here
soooo I thought I'd share that LMAO

That's all for now guys!
