Well, finally drove out to the freestanding MAC to break in the Pro card!


Here's the goodies:

1. Stopped in at Nordstroms... I didn't even know there was one in this mall - didn't show up on Nordie's site, so I peeked over @ their MAC counter... and snagged the last Beau palette they had!
Unfortunately couldn't get this 30% off because it was only at the Nordies counter.


2. Also stopped in at Sephora (just to look... lol) and picked up my perfume, and got these samples.

3. The perfume! LOL Philosophy's Pure Grace... my HG 'Signature' Scent! love it!
I think this is like my 5th bottle... lol

4. MAC brush cleaner. Will be bathing my brushes tonight!


5. Got (2) 15-pan palettes for eyeshadows

6. From the D'Bohemia collection.....

7. 4 refill pan eyeshadows (from L to R: Deep Truth, Femme Noir, Paradisco, &Tilt) Femme Noir looks weird in the pic... it's a dark forest green IRL.

8. Powerpoint pencils in "Out to Sea" ( a light turquiose blue- & thanks to Bethany for the inspiration!) and "Tealo" (a dark green)

9. (1) 6-pan blush palette

10. Blot powder in Dark (with yours truly in the mirror! LOL)

11. Powerpoint swatches

And that's it for today... also stopped into Victorias Secret for my 'free panty' that I got a card for in the mail.... in black


Now once I depot the es's - I'll be at the local MAC counter for a lippie!
Now I have one question... on the Beau palette box, and on both empty palette boxes, they have the 'back 2 mac' on them... how do you go about doing b2m's with palettes???
Oh.. another question! lol Can I use my pro card to order from the regular maccosmetics website? and what about phoning in orders for regular items using the pro #???

Wow! Looks like you did some damage to your wallet even with the 30% off. Have fun trying it all out.

Thanks guys! And Laura you are too sweet! :icon_love Thank you. I was actually looking for a navy one, but I didn't see one, so I opted for dark green powerpoint instead - as opposed to getting the fluidline. I use the pencils more often - so it would be a waste. Bethany had used the Out to Sea in her fotd the other day - & it looked great, so I got it for me & mom to share since she liked it too. Today's chore is to depot the 3 from D'Bohemia & the ones from the flea market that I got before... and maybe go get a l/s if I have time w/ the empties. I never got around to cleaning the brushes last night, so thats on todays agenda as well... thanks for all the sweet comments guys!

Ok... question... I have one Mineralize e/s. (noble) now before I bother ripping it from the pot, does anyone know if they fit into the blush palette that I got?

Ok... went to return my empties... got the "Pink Apertif' lipstick (looks much darker in the tube than when on, goes on sheer) and taking Trisha's advice, I also got a shadestick in "Beige-ing"


Here's a pic.

Janelle, I was wondering about the Pink Aspertif l/s. Is it the same color with VGV? And also what do you use Beige-ing for?

Honestly, the 2 lippies are close - IRL on my lips, I really can't tell the difference... pink apertif might go on a bit sheerer & a tad less "pink" and more peachy/nude - but it's hard to tell - very close. I took 2 pics... one with flash, one without. IRL it looks very close in color - only the P.Apertif looks a bit more sheer. In the flash it looks like a totally different color! lol But If you like VGV, I would think you'd like this too.


First pic w/ flash, 2nd pic without.

Oh.. sorry - forgot to add *** Pink Aperif on left, VGV on right***

Isn't that funny!? They look so different on skin but I hear from every one that they both are very similar so I am sure I'll like it. Thanks sweetie xx

Thanks sweetie xx Yeah... lol When I look at my wrists it only looks a little more sheer - but similar in color. But the flash in the pic makes it look so different! But I tried it on when I got back to my car - and it didn't look much different than VGV does... light shimmery pink. My usual color! LOL
