Another 2 parcel arrived yesterday =)
First parcel is my lil MAC Limited Edition Adoring Carmine purchase.
I found a yellow envelope with handwritten “Thank You” on it.
Inside I found another Thank You note and my haul is in a cute Hello Kitty bag.
A closer view on the cute bag.
MAC Adoring Carmine Lipstick in Soft Spot & Lipglass in My Dear. These two is from Adoring Carmine #3 set [Neutral Lips]. I skip Real Treasure lipstick as it’s kinda dark for me.
The lipstick is not as dark as the picture. I failed to capture the real colour. It’s actually quite light.
The colour is kinda like a light pink. Almost transparent I would say.
Swatches for both my purchase!
MAC Adoring Carmine lipstick smell is similar to cocoa butter and it’s not drying to the lips. I like it very much. The lipglass colour payoff is better and shinny. It’s sticky but not till the extend where you can’t wait to take it off. Quite moisturizing though. The smell is also like cocoa butter. However the downside is you’d get a white line on your inner lips almost immediately.
My second lil haul is Stila!
Stila Duo Eyeshadow in Tatiana & Single Eyeshadow in Kitten.
A casing is also included.
It’s not a problem if you don’t have the casing as the eyeshadow comes in a plastic holder. Both shadow is powder shadow. Light pink is with a few shimmer (I mean really a few) while purple is a dead powder colour.
Label on the back of the plastic holder is removable easily. You can stick it to your casing. And I did!
This is how the casing looks like. The black thing you see is actually magnet! I think the hole is for you to poke in if you want to remove the eyeshadow out.
Eyeshadow safely transfered to the new casing. I’m quite surprise the duo is not stuck together. It’s actually on separate pan.
Here’s the swatches. Colour payoff is bad. I have to swipe a few times for this swatch.
Stila Single Eyeshadow in Kitten. Bought this as a highlight and base for eyeshadow.
The casing is actually a metal casing.
Label at the back.
It’s a silky and shimmering skin tone shadow and colour payoff is superb!
I wore the duo eyeshadow today and I had problem applying as the colour payoff is just bad. My RM5 Daiso eyeshadow is way better than this. After a few hours the eyeshadow is not there anymore lol.
