MAC Pro LA!!!

I finally got to the MAC Pro Store in LA. I have been to the Vegas and South Coast Plaza Pro stores, but never made it to the LA store even when I lived only an hour plus away. I had heard that they could be snobby or overly zealous at selling things, but found neither to be true. The MA who helped me was very quiet, actually. And the other MAs were all sweet - okay, probably helped to be in the store with an adorable baby in my arms. Ha!

So, on to the haul:
Iridescent Powder/Loose in Silver Dusk - gorgeous, leaves a nice shimmer on my cheekbones and other highlighted areas.
They had the new Mineralized Eye Shadows out, so I picked up Fresh Green Mix (wearing it today with tons of compliments), Hot Contrast, and Sea & Sky.
White Gold pigment - increadibly gorgeous and cannot wait to use it. MAC says: Shimmery white infused with golden yellow pearl (Pearl), I'd say the golden yellow pearl has a slight green tint - can't wait to use it with the new Female Richmetal Highlighter.
Cremestick Liner in Sublime Culture
Cremestick Pearl Liner in Mother Pearl
Three brushes: 189, 227, and 231.
Lip Erase in Pale
Lipmix in Violet and White Frost
New MSF Light/Medium and Shimmer.

I also picked up my Nordies Anniversary products:
Female Richmetal Highlighter and Tea Time pigment (see my previous post)

Today I went to my local store in the hopes of getting Tendertones in EZ Baby and they were out like everyone else. I also tried to get the greenish one and they were out of that. Sigh…knew I did not really need them. But in the process of chatting with one of my fav MAs, I got another haul: Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul (thought I’d want Gentle, but I think Warm Soul looked better on my skin). I also grabbed Myth l/s - not sure why I have never gotten this before as I love a nude lip. I also went crazy with the Shadesticks (rumor is that they are all going to be discontinued!) I got Sharkskin (lots of great reviews lately), Blurberry, Pink Couture, and Fresh Cement. Supposedly they are better with the Mineralized Eye Shadows that using Paint Pots. I'll test that out one day. :)

I also went in to Sephora in my quest for something that will stay at least part of the day in my waterline. After reading online reviews, I grabbed a few things to try:
MUFE Aqua Creamliner in 1 (black)
Smashbox Jet Set waterproof Eye Liner in Midnight Black
MUFE Khol Pencil (MA there recommended)
Sephora Angled liner brush
I also have never used MUFE e/s, so picked up Star Powder in 902 and 940 - they look like MAC's Reflects, but seem to not travel as much...I'll post a review.

So, what do you think of my hauls??? :)
