March Haul

These are my hauls for this month. I'm super excited about this haul because I finally got my hands on a MAC Wonder Woman Lipstick!! I was also able to get a few travel-sized Stila products and a couple of Carmex lip balms.

L to R: Stila Convertible Color, Natural Finish Oil-Free Makeup, Illuminating Liquid Foundation, Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer
These Stila products were actually supposed to be a part of a set called the "Made In Your Shade Foundation Wardrobe". I was really excited about getting the entire set, but the online store I bought these from (Get Tickled Pink) had sold the items separately, so two out of the six were already sold before I was able to get them. :( At least these were still available and so far, I'm very happy with them. 
  • Stila Convertible Color in Lillium
  • Stila Natural Finish Oil-Free Makeup in Shade B
  • Stila Illuminating Liquid Foundation in 30 Watts
  • Stila Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer in Shade 01
Reviews to follow!

L to R: Carmex Click Stick Lip Balm in Strawberry and Squeeze Tube Lip Balm in Original
Thought of giving these Carmex lip balms a try since they've been getting so popular here recently. I bought these from Trinoma by the way, and so far, so good! I'm loving the cute packaging! Will probably post a review on how well they moisturize the lips.

MAC Wonder Woman Matte Lipstick in Russian Red
And last but most definitely not the least is the MAC Wonder Woman Matte Lipstick in Russian Red. Believe it or not, I had to attend two collection launches just to be able to get my hands on a Wonder Woman lipstick! It's CRAZY how fast the products from this collection got sold out! I was around 30 minutes late for the first launch I attended and all the lipsticks were already sold out. On the second launch I attended, I was determined to finally get the Marquise d' Lustre Lipstick, which is what I actually really wanted. Badly. Everything was going great at first. I was 30 minutes early this time, and when I got to the store, there were about 10 people tops lined up in front of me, which I thought wasn't too bad at the time. BUT crazily enough, by the time it was my turn, Marquise d' was already sold out!! I think I actually heard my heart when it broke, so I just opted for my second option. It's not so bad, though. Definitely beats going home empty-handed like the last time, and I was actually pretty happy with this shade once I tried it on.

So there you have it! Another happy makeup addict. By the way, I'd like to mention a TON of thanks to my boyfriend who got the Wonder Woman lipstick for me. Isn't he a sweetheart? ♥ He knows how obsessed I am with makeup and doesn't mind one bit. 

On another note, who else is excited for the summer? I'm EXTREMELY happy that I'm finally graduating from college!! Congratulations to everyone else who's about to graduate!

    Nice haul too. I'd love to see you rock that WW lipstick on an FOTD. :)

  4. Hi Pammy! Thank you! :)
    And I'm gonna have to think about that FOTD, I'm wayyy too shy hahaha. I might just take a picture of my lips instead. ;)

  5. I still can't find carmex in squeeze tube :(
    Mac wonder woman lipstick looks really cool!

    I followed you BTW. :)

  6. Hi Katrina! Thanks, I followed you back too! :)

    I'm actually not familiar yet with the places that sell Carmex. I just happened to find this at Landmark, Trinoma. I was actually hoping to get the Cherry Click Stick, but they were all out. Hope you find it soon! :)
