Before I start, I want to say this is a super old collective haul (as you would be able to tell from the items). I just haven't posted it up because I keep procrastinating on resizing and watermarking the photos. Why I even procrastinate something as simple as this? I have no idea...
But that's not the point, the stuff I got here are straight off the MAC counter (finally!).
The first purchase was back with the Dsquared, Style Black collections era.
From Dsquared I picked up the Lip Erase in Dim. This isn't quite a limited edition product, but it is a PRO product.
I never planned to get this while browsing the Dsquared collection online since most MAC Lip Erase reviews are kind of neutral. I have no idea why I eventually got it. Maybe it's just this subconscious magnetism to nude lips that I have...
Though I would say in terms of products to conceal lips and all, I still prefer my Canmake one over this.
Since we're talking about lip stuff, the next item I got is from the MAC Style Black collection:
Another "I have no idea why I got it, but I did" product. I guess it's just too unique and different to pass up. I got this over the other two shades because (I think?) this was the one that MakeupByTiffanyD said it was sort of the prettiest and most obvious on.T
This next item I had actually plan to get because first of all, it's a blush and second of all, it's a mineralized blush. Does that not scream "must get"? (:
This blush actually have some mauvey tones to it though it isn't showing up very much in the photo. It seems to compare slightly to the solid size of Grand Duo, a previously released MAC Mineralized blush from the Grand Duos collection.
So this next haul some of you are familiar with because it was done during the Blogger Meet Up around christmas last year.
It's the MAC 223 brush, which is not from the permanent line.
It's kind of a funny story, but long story short, Sophia (retail_therapy) spotted this brush and we were talking about how we've never seen it before and how it was like the MAC 222 but brown. So we returned the brush to the glass jar, and I just couldn't stop thinking about it. Next thing you know, I had it in hand and was paying for it. ~sigh, my weakness with brushes.
Oh and I did a quick google search on this brush since when I asked, the MA said it was being re-promoted in a recent collection, but I have no idea which collection it is! Last I checked it was promoted in a 2007 collection called Raquel Welch? Someone enlighten me.
Comparing this to the MAC 222, I would say this isn't as stiff. So while the 222 is a good crease color brush, the 223 would be a good blending brush. The 223 is also reported to be great for applying concealer with, especially since it has synthetic bristles, though I haven't tried.
And that is my belated haul! I anticipate very few constructive entries coming up soon due to the school workload so bear with me for a bit (:
Thank you for reading!
