MAC Haul 🙂

MAC Haul 🙂 Hey guys, I just wanted to come over here and show you guys everything I got recently from MAC Cosmetics. I love shopping and hence I go a wee bit crazy sometimes 😀 Some of them, I got a while back but most of them are my recent purchase. There are some new products in here and some old classics. Just to put a little disclaimer out there, yes I got everything from my own money. I support myself and my husband or anyone does not finance my beauty/makeup or blog expenses. I know a lot of you guys think that probably my husband supports my shopping because he is a surgeon. Well he is, and I am super proud of him. But I don’t feel its right to take his help when I can support myself.

That being said, I hope I won’t get repeated comments like in so many of my previous haul posts like omg you spend so much, omg your dad lets you spend so much, omg your husband spoils you too much. I mean, I am a doctor and I am studying for my super speciality. So, though I don’t earn as much as full time working doctors, I earn enough to support our expenses.

Also, you may ask that I could do sponsored posts and collabs through my blog etc. But let me tell you, blogging for me is all about being honest. So I don’t accept money for mandatory positive reviews. If some company sends me products for review, I do not promise them positive reviews. I rather promise them honest reviews. So I may not earn a gazillion through my blog, but at the end of the day I know I am honest and not misguiding anyone. I work really hard for my blog and I always like to keep it real with everyone.

So all that being said, let us jump into everything that I got. I visited a MAC store in Bangalore recently. Did purchase a few things there. Since then, I was super excited and I ordered even more MAC products online. Most of these are lipsticks because I am a big time lipstick junkie. Apart from that, there is mascara, kajal, lip liner, highlight, blush, eyeshadow palettes, foundation, loose powder etc.

MAC Haul 🙂

Let us begin. I’ll show you the pictures mostly because its a haul posts and everyone wants to see what we got more than anything else. Stay tuned because I actually bought some doubles which I would be giving away soon 🙂 Follow me on instagram and twitter @asthambf if you wish to know about the giveaways asap.

MAC Foundations

So I got 2 MAC foundations. Both are in different shades because currently I am going through a NC42 phase, and as summers get over I will go into my NC35-40 phase 😀 I mean, is it only me or do you guys purchase shades of foundation depending on season as well? I always get some tanning during summers which clears out by the time rains approach.

MAC Loose Powders/Foundation

I mean, we don’t get Laura Mercier or Kat Von D here in India. Thus MAC is one of the high end brands which has good quality loose powders. So I got a mineralise loose powder foundation as well as a transparent finishing powder.

MAC Blush and Highlighter

I love my MAC Fluer power blush. I want to get so many more blushes from MAC, but let me go slowly 😀 So I couldn’t resist the packaging of MAC’s limited edition products from MAC – Caitlyn Jenner collaboration. So I got their blush. Of course I had to get MAC soft and gentle. One of the best sellers from MAC and truly a classic.

MAC Eyeshadow Palettes

So while I was in the MAC store, I honestly fell in love with these eyeshadow palettes. In fact, I got the MAC Festive Lights Diwali palette during my visit to a MAC store back in November I think. When I visited a MAC store again, I got the Burgundy times 9 palette. I honestly think that both these palettes are so versatile and are so appropriate for a variety of skin tones.

MAC Mascara, Kajal, Lip pencil, Crayon

So like I don’t have enough mascaras in my life already, I needed another one! Honestly, MAC SAs are so good sometimes that you have to buy what they say is good. So I ended up getting this big ass mascara. Of course, a red lip crayon. Classic cherry lip liner and a black kajal.

MAC Lipsticks

Previously I just had a bunch of MAC lipsticks in my collection because I live in a city which doesn’t have a MAC store. When I was in med school, again the city had no MAC Stores. So I used to get MAC whenever I visited cities with MAC stores. Now, MAC is available online in India which is great. I actually got some of these lipsticks from my recent visit to a MAC store. However the rest I purchased online from an authorised MAC store.

Lipsticks from MAC’s permanent range are as follows (L to R)

MAC Ruby Woo
MAC Mehr
MAC Viva Glam 2
MAC Viva Glam 1
MAC Captive
MAC Amorous
MAC Russian Red

So that was all the new makeup I got from MAC recently. New for me because may be you guys must have already tried them out. If you have, please leave a comment below and share your experience with everyone. I am actually planning to get more stuff from their new limited edition collections. But I just want to try these out before getting more stuff. But then again, I am quite impulsive (Story of my life!).

    Like your thoughts on being independent ,Although it’s a bonus in life to have someone who’s got your back Economic independence gives you a sense of pride and respect and the best part is that you get the freedom and the confidence to chase your dreams.
