MAC & Sephora Haul

I picked a few items from the MAC In The Groove collection a few days after it came out. I also picked up some pretties from Sephora while I was visiting my dad in Albuquerque.

First, MAC's In The Groove.

Stereo Rose MSF I was so lucky to get this item. I got the last one at my MAC Pro store. It is a lovely coral with bronze veining.

Jazzed Lipstick A nice coral pink lipstick. Different from most of the other colors I have.

Chillin’ Cremesheen Glass Looks blueish in pictures, but it is a very simple shimmery gloss. I imagine it would look good on top of just about anything.

I also grabbed one item not from the In The Groove collection, a Studio Finish Concealer. While one of the MAC Artists was helping me figure out the MSFs, she put on some concealer over my cheeks to cancel out my natural redness. I was so surprised, and the effect was wonderful. I just loved it. I could go on and on about how pleased I was about learning this. It just made me so happy. I need to hold myself back from going on and on about how great this whole idea is.

Second, a Sephora haul. Now, there isn't a Sephora where I live, so when I'm near one I like to grab some goodies. Plus, it was within two weeks of my birthday, so I got the little Sephora freebee too. Yay!

Bad Gal Lash & Too Faced Lash Injection in travel sizes. I love having travel sized mascaras. Somehow travel sizes make me happy.

Hello Flawless from Benefit. Hello Flawless is supposed to be a good foundation for oily skin, so I will definitely give this a try.

Coralista by Benefit. My first Benefit box! I'm excited. Such a lovely coral color.

24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Zero by Urban Decay. I already have a few other 24/7 eye liners, but no black. Weird, right? I really needed to get the black to go with all my other colors.

Buxom Travel In Style The packing is what got me. This set includes a Mini Big & Healthy Lip Polish in Monica & a Mini Big & Healthy Lip Stick in Athens. Lovely colors.

Sephora Beauty Insider Birthday Gift includes a white shimmery eyeshadow, a deep green eyepencil and a mascara.

I've yet to try all these items, but now I am back home I will have to try all of them! If you would like any reviews of swatches, please let me know!


  1. yay for mac's in the grove :D i picked up a lot from that collection! let me know how the creamsheen gloss goes for you - i have yet to try one of those lipglosses from mac!

    and i recently got the birthday set from sephora too. the eyeliner is such a nice shade eh? i love bad girl lash and i'm currently using the waterproof one. hope you enjoy all your new stuff :D xx

  2. So happy you could get your hands on Stereo Rose! It's not a holy grail for me, but it's definitely nice to have in my collection! :) I sing praises of that concealer constantly. It's the best!

    I still need to get Coralista one day. It's so pretty. I love 24/7 pencils. So creamy! Love the haul, girlie!

  3. Hi Wendy! I quite like Stereo Rose, but I don't think it will be something I go for everyday.

    I really like Coralista. The color goes with my skin tone so well. I can just put it on naked cheeks and it still looks good.

    Thank you for the comment!

  4. Hi Christine. I think I want to pick up more items from the collection. I'm really starting to like the MSFs. I love the cremesheen glosses. They are less sticky, and the color I got is perfect over any lipstick. It really is lovely.

    I'll let you know how I like the items from the haul. ;)

    Thank you so much for your comment.

  5. Great haul! =)

    I always thought the Hello Flawless would be bad for people with oily skin! Will you let me know how that works out for you?

  6. @Linh, I saw Hello Flawless on Musings of a Muse and it hijacked my brain. I couldn't stop thinking about it, so I decided to grab one. I will definitely let you know how it works for me. :)

  7. I got that same Sephora birthday kit. What did you think of it? I was a little disappointed but eh.

  8. @Shopping Addict: So far I have only used the eyeshadow, which is lovely. The other two I think are nice, but I already have brands that I like for eyeliner and mascara, so I'm not so interested in them.
