How’s your Saturday going?
As all I could hear was Black Friday all around me, I decided that I was going to visit the Montaigne Place in Ikeja City mall that carries Yves Rocher products to purchase some skincare items. I got there and they practically almost had nothing for my oily skin and I was disappointed. Meanwhile, Shoprite was steadily looking like a market square. Lol.
Anyway, I put my money to good use and got some MAC limited Edition goodies that were 50% off. I’m sure you guys know by now that I like sales. Oh well!
I got the Nut cracker Sweet nude lip Bag which comes with a bag of course, a lip liner – In Control, a Full-size cream sheen lipstick – Magic spell, and a MAC Vamplify pigmented lip gloss. It’s a nude collection and as a lady that loves nudes, you know I had to get one.Vamplify is a really pigmented gloss, In control is matte and Magic spell is really sheer which I’m not mad at. I got this whole set for 8,500naira ($23) which in my opinion is a steal. Total value is actually ($46)
I also got the I’m that Chick you like eye shadow quad and Sweet sweet Fantasy blusher in the Mariah Carey Collection. This is the darker of the 2 blushes in the collection and the one which is more coral.The eye-shadow has 3 shimmer shades and one matte shade. The packaging is awesome and I would commend them for that! I’m a sucker for pretty things really! I really wanted to get the bronzer but it was sold out.
The eye-shadow was 6,000 naira ($16) while the blush was 5,500 naira ($15). I feel I can use all the items I purchased in both collections to create a very nude, and sophisticated look and I like that.
Which item do you like best and would you probably rock? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
MAC is my favorite make-up brand. Most of all of my current favorites are from MAC: including Velvet Teddy as my favorite lipstick ever. Great picks.
