Anyway, last Thursday, I received a text from Carlos of MAC Shangri-la.
"Gudday carlos here frm MAC SHANG.i would like to inform u that the winter fall collection are now here at the counter. This are the ff collection: euristocrats, love that look and graphic garden.txt me if u want something to reserve frm the collection.thanks"
O-M-G! I'm not prepared! Errr, let me rephrase that, my wallet is NOT prepared! LOL! I really thought it's sched to come end of the month. And to think it's 3 collections all at the same time.
I saw Sutil of abubots.blogspot.com online in ym and pm'ed her about the new collection, and we have the same reaction, we're not prepared! I told her I want the Fresh Cut palette from the Graphic Garden collection but after she saw the swatches, she discouraged me from getting it as it won't suit my skintone. She advised me against getting pale pinks, only the last two colors will be usable for me, she added. Ok, that's one off my list yey! I decided not to get the brush sets too as I like using full size brushes. The Euristocrats collection, I'm not interested as it's all about lipsticks and lipgloss, I'm fine with my Burt's Bee's lip balm and Clinique's Almost Lipstick in Black Honey.
Anyway, we went to Shang the day after receiving the text. I bought 2 e/s and MAC 217, I was able to stick to my list unlike my officemate/friend who got 6 e/s and 2 pearl glide liners from her original list of 3 e/s and 1 pearl glide.
Why 3 e/s in the pic? Because, Carlos gave us one free e/s each, my first freebie from MAC yey! 12 more e/s to complete my palette! LOL
Before we left MAC, Carlos invited us to go back on Sunday (that's tomorrow!) because they'll be having a workshop from 2pm to 4pm. This is open to everyone! I would love to go, but my folks are staying here for the weekend, unless they go home to Cavite before lunch haha.
