creme d'nude (back to mac) + red earth haul

ive been able to empty seven mac products! i get through mac foundations (powders and liquids), "boy bait" cremesheen glosses, and their "soft and gentle" skin finishes pretty quickly! but things like eye shadows, blushes, and lipsticks i usually take my time!

this is what i traded in:
and this is what i received through the "back to mac" promotion (six empty mac containers = free lipstick) ... uhhh, so i dont actually have a picture of just the new creme d'nude picture, but below is a picture comparing "myth"(closest to front) and "creme d'nude"(behind).
here are some swatches of "creme d'nude"(left/top) and "myth"(right/bottom). i prefer creme d'nude, hands down :)
and here is what i got from priceline from the red earth clearance/sale:
oh, and the mac "creme d'nude" lipstick is obviously there also haha.

the three eyeshadows i purchased were (clockwise from top left) burnt caramel(friken gorgeous colour), stormy night (used this today in my FOTD, post up soon :).) and iced brownieeeee - this eyeshadow was broken, and because it was sealed i didnt know that it was broken. i opened it on the way home and was like sdchjbvuirebuieqb. and went back to priceline, and they said cos it was clearance it meant i couldnt return it or even exchange! ffs.

i really wish i could do a post that didnt involve me complaining about shitty customer service! i am dooooomed.

oh, and they were $5 each, EXCEPT for the iced brownie! which was $10 - lucky me, the broken one was twice as much as the not broken eyeshadow! haha

anyways, i bought an eyebrow kit, my first ever eyebrow kit! i dont even have an eyebrow pencil, i have like tweezers, but thats about it :) its in blonde, and it was like $25+ or something? but i got it for $18. it has two colours, i use the darker one, and an eyebrow "Setting wax". so far, i like it :)
there isn't like a before or after, but here's me quickly just using the eyebrow kit :) its my first time, and i know it's a messy job, but i really like the way they turned out! hopefully i get the knack of it pretty quickly :)
ive never taken pictures of my eyebrows? before so yeah didn't know which angles were most flattering hahaha and except for mascara, not wearing any makeup! ewww. ahh haha
