Mall Haul: MAC, Loft, Sephora, Lush

Is it wrong that every time I go to write "mall haul", I always write "maul haul".  LOL.  Anyway so my daughter and I headed to the mall last Saturday for a 'girls day out'.

Our first stop was the MAC counter at Nordstrom.  I went there to see if I could pre-order or put a hold on a few items that are coming out this week in the collections MAC is launching.  I got a 'no' on both questions :(  But I did pick up a couple of MAC lipsticks.  I have been wanting MAC Viva Glam V for a while, but after seeing Tanya Burr's video on her top 10 MAC lipsticks, I decided to pick up Cream In Your Coffee as well.

We stopped at Sephora and I took advantage of the VIB 15% off.  I picked up a NARS lipstick in Cruising which looked disappointingly like the MAC Viva Glam V.  After close inspection, Crusing is considerably sheerer and Viva Glam V is pinker.  They're different I tell you.  Different.

I also picked up NARS Sheer Matte foundation in Mont Blanc.  Siberia looked a little too light (and too yellow).  Then I got it home and yeah, Mont Blanc is too dark, so I will be exchanging it this weekend.  Bah.  I suppose I should be grateful that I can just go exchange it.

We also went to Loft and I used a gift certificate to pick up a bracelet I've been wanting for quite a while.

We also got a TON of stuff at Lush, but I didn't get it photographed.  If you want to see it, you're going to need to watch our Mall Haul video.

    1. Thanks! I'm very pleased with them as well.

  2. I really like the Viva Glam V, but I can never justify buying NARS lip products... So much money for one that's so sheer... I love the bracelet, though!

    1. This was the first Nars lip product I'd tried and I really do like it. I'm not sure I like it at that price point. I've been carrying it around in my purse all week to convince myself I'll get enough use out of it to justify the cost.
