Fail MAC Haul + Update

Although it has only been like three days or so since my last actual post, it seems forever since I blogged! I miss it so much! Unfortunately my internet has not been fixed and I am currently at my brother's place stealing his internet ^_^

If you remember, I was on Project 10 Pan #2 since I finished my first 10 products about two weeks ago. And sadly I have already failed! I went shopping for presents for my friend's birthday and I could not resist buying a couple of things for myself. Iwill show you what I purchased~

*These are all MAC products that were purchased with my own money.

1.Fresh Amour Mattene Lipstick ($14.50, Limited Edition)
This was the only thing I purchased from the Posh Paradise collection, mostly because all the paint pots were sold out. I thought that these mattene lipsticks were going to be permanent, but they are not. I am totally obsessed with purple lippies, so I HAD to buy this. This is a matte, but not dry, very pale and opaque lavender.
Fresh Amour


2. Blue Sheen & Smokey Ruby Mineralize Eyeshadow ($20, Limited Edition)
When the Semi-precious collection came out, nothing really appealed to me, that is until I kept seeing these shadows in a bunch of blogs. By the time I decided to buy something, Smoked Ruby sold out online. Lucky for me that one of my counters had these two colors! I had to have Smoked Ruby and Blue Sheen was also too pretty to resist! I know Blue Sheen is still available online, in case you are curious.
Blue Sheen is a deep blue with multi-colored shimmers.
Smoked Ruby is a blacked copper toned red.

3.Asian Flower & Korean Candy Sheen Supreme Lipsticks ($14.50, Permanent)
Although the Seasonally Supreme collection is permanent, I could not resist the look of these. Since I had already failed my P10P, I might as well go wild.So what the heck, I bought these too.
Asian Flower is a pink toned purple with silver shimmers.
Korean Candy is a bright, orange toned red.
Both are super creamy, moisturizing, and opaque.

Korean Candy is absolutely stunning! I will be doing lip swatches once my internet is fixed~

Blue Sheen. Left: alone, Right: Blue Sheen over Pixie Epoxy
Smoked Ruby. Left: Alone, Right: Smoked Ruby over Pixie Epoxy.
 Both of the eyeshadows are very pigmented on their own, but Pixie Epoxy makes it even more vibrant.

Update~
I have already chosen the 3 winners for my giveaway and I am waiting for their responses. :D
I also have a lot of things that I need to post once I get my internet. Check the side bar for upcoming posts~

Thank you all so much for reading! I hope you are all doing well and I can't wait to start reading your blogs again!
