Anyways, I don't know about you, but whenever I walk into a Mac store, I just overwhelmed. I get greedy and want to try everything. And because of this, most of the time I walk back out empty handed. *sigh*
So this time I thought I would try looking online. I went to the Mac cosmetics site here. It's so much nicer being able to take my time and look through everything. I like shopping online, but I can't swatch any colors. boo. The swatches on the website are nice but I don't know how true to life they are. I had to just go by what was provided online. There was free shipping on orders over $50 so I also took advantage of that.
I ordered four eye shadows, one lipstick and one dazzle gloss. I just received my order on Thursday which was really great shipping time because I had just placed my order on Monday. I spent around $100 on this purchase, where everything I ordered was priced at $14.50. This was more than what I would normally spend on cosmetics, but my birthday is coming up (July 10!) so I thought I would treat myself. (I have to be good to myself, right? lol)
I only ordered one lipstick because I was worried about the lipsticks melting in the June heat via shipping. Everything I ordered though came in tact and in a black box with black tissue paper.
What I ordered:
Mac Cremesheen Lipstick in Creme d' Nude
Mac Lipglass in Lychee Luxe
Swatches of Creme d' Nude and Lychee LuxeI decided to choose colors that I would use over and over again to get my money's worth. These are probably the most expensive eye shadows I own (so far). I choose these because they are mentioned again and again by so many YouTube gurus. I was most interested in Satin Taupe because so many other people mention it and look for dupes to this particular color.
