US Makup Haul

In my recent trip to the US (for work), so that I won't be buying impulsive makeup I went with a list of what to buy before I even left Manila. Well we all know that didn't really work out as planned. Haha But I am glad to say that this has got to be my most conservative loot to date!

Most of the items I got were to replace almost empty products and the others, well just a few knick knacks that I figured I would need. (Figure being the key word! :P )

Photo was taken in Instagram hence the effect hehe

MAC Blunt
MAC Pro Longwear Foundation in NC30
MAC Studio Fix Powder in NC30
MAC Prep and Prime Pressed Translucent Powder
MAC Lipmix in Red, White
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo, Tokyo

Here is my conservative loot! :) Out of the products my favorites have got to be the MAC Lipmix - which I got in Red and White, and the MAC Prep and Prime Pressed Translucent Powder. :)

From this US trip, I had the most fun time shopping in the MAC Pro Store in The Forum Shops Ceasars Palace in Las Vegas. I was like a little girl jumping from table to table trying and swatching the products. I had such a great time too with all the MAC artists so accommodating. I went back a couple of times during my week stay in Vegas. Had I the chance to buy the whole store and take it home I would. :P But don't we all. :) Glad to say that I had tons of self control buying only the things I would need! :)

Shopping for make up is always love. :)

Toodles! :)



  1. it's a good idea that you had a list so you wouldn't go overboard... great haul btw!! that Maybelline Colossal Volum (name?) is a must have!! that is my fave mascara of all times... =)

    when were you in Las Vegas?? I was just there last week... it would've been nice to do a meet up with a fellow (Filipina) blogger... =)

  2. Hi Annettee I was in Vegas from Aug 29 to the first week of sept. :) it would have been nice to meet a fellow blogger outside of the Philippines too, next time hopefully :)

  3. Omg! I want to own this much make up, too! Especially lipstickS! :>
