So, where have I been???
If you’re following me in Instagram, you’ll know that I’ve been on a holiday with my family and we’re on a Europe tour! We visited 4 countries and went to a total of 10+ cities in 2 weeks. A very, very tight scheduled tour, I know – but that’s Asian tours for ya!
In the good side, we got to see like, a lot, in a short span! I was so tired after the trip and also the jetlag effect hits me hard, I was in a dizzy state the day we arrived. In which resulting in a super idiotic accident and we have to get to the emergency room and I got 5 stitches on my thumb. Very, very stupid incident, but let it be a good experience, don’t go easy after a long haul flight, make sure you rest and ready to do stuff with sharp edges.
Since this is mainly a beauty blog, I’ll post the BEAUTY HAUL first, yey! I’ll consider to post the travel pics and the experience, because it’ll be a very long one and I don’t know I should do it or not since I’ve behind with my review posts. Comment down below if you would like to see one! J
First, I didn’t get a lot of makeup because 1. There’s just no time and 2. I don’t really have anything on my wish list for this trip. To be honest, I planned to NOT buy any cosmetics and I definitely failed at that one mission. Anyhoo, enough with all the reasoning, here’s the haul!
Naked 2 Palette €49
Finally, gave in to the Naked 2 temptation. Honestly, I prefer the Naked 1 palette shade selection, but the packaging is just too flimsy and Naked 3 is just too pink. I bought this palette in Sephora and there’s a sale event so me and my sister got a discount, yey! If only the Naked Smoky palette have launched, I'll probably got that one instead :P
Next is Mac stuff, I got 2 lipsticks and an eyeshadow palette in Schiphol Airport.
MAC Lipstick €16,20
I know I said 2 lipsticks, I actually got "Brave" in Indonesia, before the trip, but since I haven't showed it to you guys, so here it is! Brave is a satin lipstick, very neutral but not super nude. Velvet Teddy apparently is a famous shade nowadays, it's the perfect brown pink shade and it's matte - the SA said the shade is getting famous because of Kendall Jenner, though I'm not really sure if this the lipstick she used, but anyway the shade is pretty! Creme Cup is a cremesheen lipstick, it's definitely more sheer than the other shade but the shade still showing up on my lips.
I like MAC lipstick in general, I like their scent and the lasting power - now kinda regretting why I get everything nude and neutral. Should have bought one brighter shade.
Eyeshadow x 9 MAC €33
Next is the eyeshadow palette, I've seen this in every MAC store around Europe, and it always sold out and there I found it sitting in Amsterdam. Not really sure if they're in the permanent collection or limited edition, but the originally came in 4 shade selections, and most of the shades are nowhere to be found already. This palette is called "eyeshadow x 9" in "Burgundy Times Nine". They have 4 shade selections, other than burgundy there's amber, navy and purple.
When I was at this "to buy or not to buy" mode, the SA was like, "Here's the thing, if you're gonna buy it anyway, buy it now - the price is great here and you wouldn't find them again" and I was like, SOLD :D
The eyeshadow contain small size (just over a half size of their regular sized eyeshadow) and I think you find each shadow in the palette in the individual shade collection. Here's the eyeshadow name list :
So far so good, I want the "Amber" shade one really!
Ok, next, still a MAC product, it's their Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium, I heard that they're great, it look great, and I got a voucher from Singapore Airlines so here's what I bought with the voucher! :D
Last one, is something that I got from Jakarta Airport lol - Yes I got this in Lotte Duty Free in Soetta Airport and this is one thing that I have on my wishlist. I've done some researches and it turns out that purchasing this foundation in Indonesia is still cheaper so I bought it just before I took off. I bought this in "Fresco" 2C3 shade. I haven't tried it and I'm not even sure the shade matches my skin or not :(
I did bought this on sale (15% off!) but they only have like 3 shades on stock so I have to look for one that suits my skin tone the best.
That's it guys, thankyou so much for reading this haul! lol If there's anything you would like me to do a review about, please comment down below and I probably do one :)
