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.

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!

The other day I saw this tag post and I thought it was a great idea to learn other people’s beauty and skin care routines. So I decided to post one here. Hope this post will give you an idea how I take care of my skin and my take on cosmetics. If you would like to answers these questions, just copy + paste the following questions, and give out your answers! It will be fun! Here I tag a very pretty girl, who also runs a beauty blog, Mei. I love her posts, and her blog is so cute!

It’s going to be a very long, long post…

As most of you know, MAC’s Give Me Liberty of London collection will become available in stores and counters tomorrow! I went to the reveal event last week, and here are the swatches of the product I purchased:

  • Eye shadow

There are in total five colors:

Bough Grey (a soft gray with a hint of blue and sheen)

Dame’s desire (a purple with red undertone, it is actually re-promoted from the Dame Edna Collection back in 2008)

Free to Be (a coral color, it will stay as a permanent item)

Give Me Liberty of London (a creamy pink color, it will stay as a permanent item)

Birds & Berries (a bluer teal color ). I got Birds & Berries; because I love the color teal, and the fact that this shadow has a veluxe pearl finish (which means it is very pigmented and smooth to apply).

Hello girls!!! I am so excited! I just got back from MAC’s Give Me Liberty of London event…and yes! I got some goodies!

I was invited to the Oak Brook MAC store, but decided to go to the Armitage one since it is closer to where I live and plus I get to see my friend!

When we went in, there was a model dressed like the model on Give Me Liberty of London Collection poster sitting in a couch. A guy was playing guitar beside her. She is so pretty!
