Haul post: MAC, Butter London & more BYS

This post is a little overdue but here's what I bought when I was away in Brisbane last Sunday-Monday. It was a little bit of luxe haul this time...

First a quick look at the nail polish which I found in a city mall pharmacy.  BYS Hot Corals looks more red in these pics but as per its name it's a coral jelly polish with sparse silver glitter. And - this is my first Butter London nail polish in the colour everyone's been talking and blogging about, No More Waity, Katie.  NMWK is a lavendar shade full of pale lavendar glitter.  I can't wait to wear these but I've got to wait for the days to be sunny again to do them justice!  The BYS set me back only $4AUD, the Butter London a more considerable $22AUD...

Now a close up on the MAC eye shadows.  These are from the latest Semi Precious collection and I knew I wouldn't be able to resist them.  I bought these for $40AUD each (naughty me, I know)...

Golden Gaze

Finally here are the obligatory swatches in daylight and lamplight. I hit both ends of the spectrum with Clarity a cool toned glittery shadow and Golden Gaze a glamorously warm blackened gold.  The pigmentation of these is every bit as rich as you'd expect with MAC shadows.

That's all for now.  Thanks for looking!

  2. Oooh, I was drooling all over the semi precious shadows last time I was in DJ's.... maybe it was a good thing that I was in a rush :P

  3. Thank god most of the shadows were sold out when I went to the MAC counter, otherwise I may have gone crazy. I ended up with just the Gem of Roses lipstick!

    Note to self: go check out the butter london polishes.

  4. Those eye shadows and nail polishes look gorgeous!

  5. always wanted to try Butter London nail polishes. NMWK looks amazing!!

  6. what a gorgeus eyeshadow ,i love it ^_^

  7. great haul! I just found your blog and liking it a lot, I love the nail polish swatches but also other beauty stuff :)

  8. @Grace - Such a gorgeous collection. If it wasn't for the price tag I would have bought more!

    @reeree - It was definitely a now or never purchase with these, I knew they'd sell out quickly! Gem of Roses is a gorgeous lippy, my fave from the collection :)

    @rose - Thanks, I have a weakness for pretty things :)

    @Priyanka - I'll post this as soon as I've got a good sunny day to do the swatching.

    @crazy4makeup - Thanks, I'm looking forward to wearing them, they're even more stunning IRL :)

    @hermetic - Thanks and welcome to my blog. I especially love nail polish but also love lots of other pretty things and I enjoy sharing these with everyone :)

  9. I really want Golden Gaze, have managed to hold off though :)

  10. @SilhouetteScreams - I wish I had your willpower. I'm a bit hopeless at the moment, my mind keeps telling me, "I need these lovely things, and these, and these..." LOL
