RE-HAUL | MAC, Costa Blanca X, Sephora

So I ended up exchanging my Ocean Dip nail polish for MAC's Creamsheen Glass in Loud & Lovely! When I went into MAC and the sales lady told me that I would have to send back my nail polish by mail, but then she went into the back to ask and they made an exception for me. She was so lovely and helped me pick out this gorgeous colour! I was going to originally purchase a lipstick in Show Orchid, but they didn't have it and I couldn't find a colour I really loved (I also swatched Hibiscus and didn't love it as much as I thought I would) so she ended up suggesting I get Loud & Lovely. I tried it on and it was beautiful! It was $22 CAD so I had to pay the difference of $4. I also decided to keep Lush-Light Bronze after comparing it with Gold-Go-Lightly. My mom really liked Lush-Light Bronze.

I then stopped by Sephora because I desperately needed a new Urban Decay Primer Potion. I was going to purchase the jumbo one but they were out of stock and their smaller size comes in the tube form now! I ended up picking that up for $23 CAD but because I still had store credit I ended up only paying $14 for the product! I got the original one.

I also stopped by Costa Blanca X because they were having a sale. I love this store and own a couple things from them. I was going to get this cream and gold clutch with wood on the outside, but my mom wanted to buy it and it was $30 CAD and I didn't want her to waste her money, so instead I picked out this larger black and gold clutch that was onsale for $15 CAD! I love it soso much and can't wait to use it the next time I go out!

And that's my haul! :D

Hello beauty lovers! I am back with another haul and this one is from our beloved MAC! After seeing xsparkage's Surf, Baby! Haul, I decided to invest in some of the cosmetics she mentioned. Unfortunately two that I really wanted were sold out (Hibiscus and Cheek Powder), so I had to make do with what I could get my hands on.
I ordered online, got free shipping because my order was over $50 and it got here in only a couple of days considering it was sent from Toronto! C: I ended up paying $79 (with tax) on all three products.

The first thing I got is the Studio Careblend/Pressed Powder in Lush-Light Bronze for $33.50 CAD. After receiving this product, I'm contemplating exchanging it for the Gold-go-Lightly because I like a bit more of a gold glow rather than pinky brown.

The second thing I received is the nail lacquer in Ocean Dip for $18 CAD. It's a beautiful teal colour, BUT I just realized that I paid $18 for a nail polish and I never pay more than $4 a nail polish. I'm probably going to exchange it for Hibiscus because it was one of the things I really wanted.

Finally, I got a lipglass in Krazy Kahuna for $18.50 CAD! It looked so nice on swatches that I just had to have it. I am soso excited to try this product even though I don't like sticky lip glosses, I'll make it work.

So that's my haul! I'll be reviewing these products shortly.
