among the high end brands, MAC’s eyeshadows are the best priced for the quality they give. definitely a bang for your buck! At P900, I think each pot will last you for almost a year (yes even with daily use). my first ever MAC shadow was waaaayyy back in college and until now, i still have a love affair with them 🙂
what i like about MAC eyeshadows are:
– MOST of the MAC eyeshadows are highly-pigmented so you really need just a touch for each application. for added intensity, the shadows can be applied with a wet brush.
– MAC eyeshadows come in different finishes such as FROST, Veluxe, Veluxe Pearl, Satin, Matte and Lustre.
i have to say though that i am NOT a fan of the FROST finishes which have chunky glitters on them… i feel that those are more prone to fall outs that the rest of the finishes.
– there is a HUGE number of colors to choose from.
what i don’t like:
– not all colors are carried here in the philippines *boo!*
– some of the best colors were released as limited edition!
– 3 words – out.of.stock which happens most of the time (here in the ph)
presenting my MAC eyeshadow collection… 😀
from left to right: shroom, rice paper, brule, woodwinked, wedge
from left to right: amber lights, patina, bronze, mulch and cork
from left to right: gorgeous gold, espresso, carbon
i separated these colors because i use espresso and carbon almost everyday while the gold just seems out of place :p
my top 5 favorites from the entire collection would have to be:
espresso, carbon, patina, sketch and woodwinked! 😀
my next step is to transfer the eyeshadow into my MAC 15-palette pan! hehe wish me luck!!!
until next time! ohhhh and please drop by soon for my give-away! 😀
recently, a friend of mine requested that i take a photo of my entire makeup collection – i was hesitant. :p i jokingly told her that my entire kit will not fit in one frame. hehe. honestly i do have a LOT of makeup. but you have to understand that a lot of the things were actually given as gifts (yes i swear!). gifts from my loving husband, from my family and from friends because they know how much i LOVE makeup. 🙂
anyhoo, i am still hesitant in taking a photo of my entire collection so i compromised and told her that i will take a photo of my NARS collection instead (since that makes up the majority anyway).
sooo without further ado, i present to you, my NARS collection:
my collection includes the following items (from left to right):
multiple in: maui, angelika, portofino
powder foundation in Santa Fe
lipglosses in: super orgasm, angelika, dolce vita, crepuscule and orgasm (both mini sizes)
soft touch shadow pencil in celebrate
mascara and eyelash curler (came in a set)
lipstick in schiap
eyeshadow (singles): ondine, heart of glass, daphne and cyprus
eyeshadow (duos): cordura and rajasthan
blushes: amour, sin, deep throat, super orgasm, torrid, gina, taos, mata hari, desire, dolce vita, luster and madly (yep, the names are VERY kinky! wahahah)
highlighter powder in albatross
blush and bronzer duo (deep throat and laguna)
NOT IN PIC: sheer glow in punjab, face primer and smude proof eye primer (i left these at the office)
i confess, i am obsessed with their blushes! i have 12 all in all. not counting albatross and laguna bronzer! but i think i reached the point where im happy with what i have (i hope) and im not itching to buy any more of the blushes (unless the elusive ‘crazed’ finally arrives!).
well i hope you liked this post 🙂 i think this is the first and last time im doing this! hehehe.
i may post a separate blog entirely on my NARS blushes if you gals want. 🙂 just let me know!
