Hong Kong MAC Haul Round 2
July 10, 2012 § 6 Comments
Yeap. Another MAC haul. I went all out yesterday, after finding out that most basically everything from MAC is cheaper in HK than in Canada (taking tax into consideration). I swear this is the last haul I’m doing in Hong Kong, and I will be starting a project 20 pan when I get back to Canada! (I apologize for the quality of the pictures, but the lighting at the place I’m staying at isn’t the most idea for picture taking. I will be posting reviews on these when I get home, along with better pictures!)
Let’s get the most boring thing out of the way. I got the 15 pan eyeshadow palette (they called it pro colour palette). It retails for $125HKD. I like how it has the grooves for easy retrieval of the shadows, unlike the 4 pan eyeshadow palette.
I came home with 5 eyeshadows. I got them all in refill pans since I got the palette for them. Each refill pan costs $105HKD. I got Concrete, which is a matte taupe brown colour. I got this to fill in my brows. I have pretty full brows so I don’t NEED to fill them in, but they looked better after they’re filled in.. so I got this for the rare days when I will do my brows.
The next shadow I got was Woodwinked. It’s a warm antiqued gold. I think it’d be a gorgeous all over the lid colour, and I think it’d look really good with Satin Taupe.
I also got Amber Lights, which is a “peachy brown with shimmer” according to MAC. To me it looks more like a really warm gold.
Next up is Mineralized, it’s a gorgeous silvery shade that’s packed with shimmer. I just found out it’s been discontinued! It’s still available in MAC stores in Hong Kong though.
The last shadow I got was Shale, which my friend recommended me to check out. It’s a “mauve-plum with shimmer finish”. It would look really good as an all over lid colour I think.
I picked up my first MAC paint pot, in the shade Bare Study. It is the most gorgeous beige colour with a pearl finish. I am really excited about trying this! I sure hope it doesn’t dry out fast though! I’m always a little iffy with cream products for that reason. Paint pots are $160HKD each.
Next I got the MAC lipglass in Impassioned. It’s a bright bright pink. I’ve wanted to get this for a while, and finally did because it’s slightly cheaper here. When I tried it in store, it doesn’t seem to look as bright when it’s on my lips, so if you are not ready for a full on bright pink lip, you can use less products and still get pink colours on your lips. It was $140HKD.
The last thing I got was my first Mineralized Skinfinish Natural. I got it in the shade Medium Dark since I will be using this for contouring. I honestly just got talked into buying it haha. It was $250HKD.
That’s probably going to be my last MAC haul for a while (finally)! What have you hauled recently?
