Sephora + LUSH + MAC (?) + etc. HAUL

So.... I splurged ;A; A lot of my makeup is running out/expiring so I went to MAC and Sephora before going home this week. We don't have a MAC store in my hometown so I was excited to try them out. (I usually buy my makeup from Shoppers Drug Mart orz. I was overwhelmed by the department store feeling lol)
If you follow my Twitter then you probably know that I'm not too happy with MAC right now lmao.

A quick snapshot of only some of the things that I got (I'll explain why later)

I got so many samples form Sephora for signing up with their beauty insider thing... I love samples ♥. Especially that Prada eau de toilette.. that's a pretty large sample! :O

The MAC lipstick I originally purchased though got switched out... misplaced... whatever.... with another shade somehow. Instead of a light, nude-ish shade they gave me this:

As you can see, the above colour is nothing what I described lmao ヽ(o`皿′o)ノ

But honestly what the hell? How do you mess up which shade of lipstick you bring to the counter when they all have names? XD What happened was this lady was helping me pick out a shade and then when I decided she went and pulled out on of the boxes from the drawer, brought it up to the counter herself and then asked me to wait in queue to be checked out. Forgetting the name of the product I chose, it was silly of me to just trust someone to pick out the right shade.

Effectively I had to go back to the mall the next day and return it, which put me in a sour mood and left a sour impression on MAC for me. The representative was also a bit sarcastic as well, which didn't make it any better. I used the money from returning it to spend at Sephora. So there. D:

Because I had to go back to the mall to return that lipstick, I then decided to check out Sephora once more to get a different lipstick. (I ended up with a Lancome one which I love)

I also decided to get a couple of the cheaper bubble bars from LUSH, which I can use when I go back home. (LUSH is another store we don't have there huhu)

Expect many reviews in the future ヾ(。◣∀◢。)ノ


  1. Wow, sucks for the service you had with MAC! Although I've heard amazing things about their products, don't have many myself though.
    Can't wait for your reviews! :D

  2. My cousin has also had bad experiences with the people that work at MAC... looking forward to your reviews :) Especially now that I've noticed you bought some of Maybelline's colour tattoo shadow, I've heard good things about that but haven't seen many swatches

  3. yeah I always heard Mac is really popular and expensive :O

  4. Can't wait till the reviews!~
    Such a disappointment to see you have a bad experience with MAC, heard so many good things about them =/

  5. Hey sweetie! You have a very beautiful blog with a lot of inspiring posts! I'd like to invite you to be my friend and follow each other:)
