I wanted to be honesty with everyone who reads my blog. Reading some blogs can get you do. It seems like everyone is so perfect and happy. Always. That is just not the case. Everyone has good and bad days. Bad habits and wonderful success. I don't blame people for only wanting to share the good. But sometimes, it is better to be honest to your readers, your friends, instead of ignoring a big part of your day, life, self. This is why I feel that I -HAVE- to share this with you. When all my packages arrive I will probably do a collective haul or something. Some things will be from before the no-buy. (I promise I didn't go -that- crazy)
But today, with all of that behind me, my credit card hidden, and a plan to fix and start saving again I want to share with you my first ever MAC purchase. I had been lusting over a few of this for a long time and just cracked and went out immediatly to see them in person, and subsequently take them home with me. I went in with a limit of 100$. I refused to spend anymore than that. I did good. I came out 60$ poorer and 4 lipsticks richer. I picked up:
Viva Glam Nicki - bright yellow pink
Watch Me Simmer - bright pink-orange
Impassioned - amped-up fuchsia
Vegas Volt - full power coral

Viva Glam Nicki, Watch Me Simmer, Impassioned, Vegas Volt
I am overall happy with my purchase. I am not sure if Nicki looks good on me, but I am ok with that because the money goes to a good cause. I really like Vegas Volt. I am pretty sure that OCC Lip Tar in Grandma is a dupe. Impassioned is a very pretty color and I think I may have a dupe for that as well. I wanted Watch Me Simmer from the MAC COOK, MAC SHOP(?) collection and missed out so I scooped it up this time.

What do you think of the colors I chose? Have you ever just kinda lost your mind when it comes to purchases?
