Collective Beauty Haul :: Mac, Sephora, StillGlamorus, Hautelook!

I had been so busy the past month I wasn't able to post my hauls as I wanted to.. so I decided to just put all my hauls together :)

so let's get right to it.. I'll start with MAC Tartan Tale collection.. Honestly, i have kind of fell off the MAC wagon.. and had not been purchasing much from them lately.. (the past few collections).. the last time i bought anything from MAC I think was from two months ago.. 

But I decided to stop by MAC and check out their collection anyway (after much debate/lots of looking at swatches online lol).. and decided to get only 3 things..

MAC My Highland Honey Blush -$18.50
On Mac's website - described as:
Bright Coral with Soft Gold Pearl

I have seen a few swatches (I don't own it) But read that it was very similar to MAC Utterly Game Blush that came out with I think Fabulous Felines collection from MAC I think in September 2010. but since I didn't have anything like this I wanted to pick it up. I was debating about getting this or MAC Peaches blush (which is permanent).. but i decided to go with this one.. 
Left one swipe || Right blended

I then had heard so much good things about these next ones, and although I wanted to get them all, i just couldn't.. so I really had to choose lol.. and after much deliberation I decided to go with:

MAC Undercurrent Pearlglide Eyeliner - $14.50
On MAC's website - described as:
Teal with Pearl

MAC Blackline Pealglide Eyeliner - $14.50
On MAC's website - described as:
Black with Gold Pearl

They are extremely creamy! and once they set - they have amazing lasting power! I had swatched them on my hands at the MAC counter (all of them lol) and forgot to wash it off when I got home, and they were SO hard to remove the next day LOL.. but they were amazing, bold and just can't get over how creamy they are lol.. i wouldn't use this on the waterline though because of the glitter in them..  but here are the swatches of the two that i got..

I also decided to get a sample of the MAC Prolongwear foundation in NC25 .. I only tried it once, and it was okay.. but didn't persuade me enough to purchase it.. maybe i'll give it another go though.. my skin has just been real dry because of the cold weather.. Also decided to stop by Sephora and purchase my favorite perfume by Philosophy - Falling in Love.. and get a sample of the CoverFX primer.. i got the anti-aging one, but think i want to try out the anti-acne one lol.. 

I had actually ordered this on October 19.. and was wondering what was taking so long to get to me.. i had to e-mail Kasey from but ended up getting my order.. I had purchased the Smokey Glam Couture set.. it featured 3 eyeshadows.. man the little jars were PACKED to the top! lol.. I also purchased a lipstick, which after trying it once.. know it's totally not my color and have no idea what i'm going to do with it.. but here are the swatches/pictures.. I will have a more in-depth review on my purchase shortly! this set was $15.00 btw

Then I decided to get a lipstick, which i regret getting this one cause it looks atrocious on me! LOL but the swatches look lovely!

This was the first time I actually ordered anything from .. since Karen was so kind to sign up under me, I got a $10.00 credit for it lol so i used it! i decided to get only one item.. it was the Rock and Republic blush in Shameless.. i currently use this for contouring.. it's actually not too shimmery at all.. but i think it looks lovely paired with something on top of it! :)

this blush is SUPER pigmented! and don't mind this janky picture of me
i just wanted to try out the blush as soon as i got It and it was
after work LOL i look all dead haha! but yes I LOVE IT! I actually use my
MAC 131 to apply this as a contour for my cheeks etc.. it's lovely! 

Hope you all enjoyed this haul! :)

I wanted to add I did order from the Friends and Family 2010 sale from Sephora.. for that I ended up getting the Urban Decay BOS III Palette.. which i'm going to do a separate post on.. I also had a VIB 20% off from Sephora as well that they had right after the F&F sale.. which i did order a YSL Mascara and a Korres Yogurt Cream moisturizer.. and for some odd reason - UPS said it was delivered to my front door.. but when i got home - NADA! so yea ughh have to wait.. till i get it so i can post :) till next time!


  1. I love how that blush looks on you! I've been obsessed with contouring lately :)

  2. Great haul. I love peachy blushes. I heard that that Mac Blush is similar to Mac's Utterly Game which I own so I skipped on that. That R&R blush looks great on you, I love R&R. :)
