You girls think I would miss out any of the special collections from MAC? No! The reason why I didn’t posted any pictures for MAC’s recently launched collections until today was because I cherry-picked very few products from  Art Supplies and Prep for Colour collections (I only bought two items), until I got a little carried away shopping Prêt-à-papier Collection.

Hello everybody! I know I have been slacking off quite a lot lately…I need to apologize for it…But I have been working hard on other parts of my life. So I guess I wasn’t really slacking off…lol Two weeks ago my boyfriend and I went to visit our friends and their adorable, adorable baby in Schaumburg. I love Schaumburg so much that I think if there is one sub I had to move to in the vicinity of Chicago, it would definitely be Schaumburg. Schaumburg has it all: IKEA (I’m a fan of IKEA storage solutions), big indoors shopping mall, quite a lot of good Asian restaurants, and of course, Mitsuwa! I love spending a long time in its book store and the beauty isle. So this time, I grabbed my favorite Japanese magazine 25 ans, and these goodies…

There a million reasons why we love cosmetics. Recently I bought some makeup products for their packaging and value. I’m so excited to show you!

First, something cute. I am not a Tokidoki fan, but I do find the designs very cute. Therefore when the latest cosmetic line, Tokidoki for Sephora came out, it immediately attracted my attention. The packaging is very adorable!

I have to start this post by putting on the picture first of course!

Hello ladies,

This is a glance at the gifts and some of my own purchases over the weekend. First of all, a very big thank you to all of my lovely friends who showed up at the surprise birthday party my boyfriend planned on Friday (my actual birthday is this Wednesday). I loved every single one of the gift I received.

I would like to start from the biggest box in the very back:

I went to CCO (Cosmetic Company Outlet) store yesterday and thought I might give you two examples of the CCO MAC products’ prices.

As I mentioned in my previous post, CCO carries a number of department store cosmetic brands. Many discontinued products that you can’t find from stores/counters, you can find them at CCO stores for discounted prices. The one I sometimes visit carries a large collection of MAC, Bobbie Brown, Estée Lauder, Lancôme, and Clinique products.

I got a high-light powder from the Dame Edna collection in Specticle! It is a pale pink color that I will use for natural highlight on my face. I am trying to substitute my current highlight, Benefit’s High Beam with this powder. But I know it will take a while…

Last Friday I went shopping with my friend, and got some MAC products. I went to Bloomingdale’s MAC counter and found out they still have some products from the Style Warrior collection from May last year.I was very disappointed when I missed the chance to grab some colors I wanted from this collection, so you can imagine what a great surprise it was for me on Friday. I had to pick some colors I liked.
