iMomoko Haul & MAC Naked Honey & Graphic Garden Collection

I was super excited to receive my Beautymaker from iMomoko last week, but didn’t have the time to blog about it until now. I was able to use them last night and the scent was just heavenly and the texture felt so good to the touch as well as on my face. I ordered the Beautymaker moisturizing serum, moisturizing lotion, eye moisturizing serum, the awakening gel, the acne gel and the concealer. I also ordered the Naris eggshell mask & eye gel mask. Betty was so nice enough to throw in the Beautymaker whitening spot treatment and samples of DHC facial scrub. Now that’s what I call great customer service. Thank you Betty!! =)
I think I am pretty much set for daytime skincare. haha. I still haven’t used my last two moisturizer so I should be good for the next 6 months before trying or buying anymore =)

I also stopped off at Nordies to check out MAC’s Naked Honey Collection. I know I’m a bit late after all the traveling. haha. I was really more interested in the lipglass and eyeshadows – nothing else really interested me from the collection.

Only Pollinator (right) stood out to me and I compared it to Paradisco (left). They are both pretty similar except that Paradisco was more coral and Pollinator was more peachy.

They only had two of the lipglasses out so I swatched them both. Top is Queen Bee which I love – peachy color and the bottom is She’s a Star.
Then bc I’m so behind, I realized Nordies was having a pre-sale on a new collection – The Graphic Garden exclusively for their anniversary this year.

The lippies come with its own pouch selling for $34.50 each and comes with two lippies and 1 lipglass. Not too bad. The palettes are Graphic Garden Cool Eye Palette and Graphic Garden Warm Eye Palette each retail for $38. I just love that black avant-garde rose print.
The Cool Eye Palette contain Social Climber, Botanical Blue, Straight Hedge, Wild Wisteria, Linear Lilac, and Graphic Garden and the Warm Eye Palette contain Floral Inc, Sun-Shy, Fresh Cut, Poppy Noir, Bloomcycle, and Part Peony.
I was more interested in the cool palette so did a swatch comparison with MAC’s permanent eyeshadows to see if they are similar in colors.

From left to right: Botanical Blue (new), Steamy & Aquadisiac
Electric Eel, Freshwater & Wild Wisteria (new)
Creme de Violet, Linear Lilac (new) , Stars n’ Rockets

Then I swatched from the lip bag collection: (top to bottom) Spiced Flower lipstick, Baby Boom lipglass, Summer Crop lipglass, Semi-annual lippie and Garden Bed lippie

Overall I like the Summer Lip bag more as well as the Graphic Garden cool palette. I’m not sure yet if I want to do the pre-sale. I didn’t do a pre-sale on the Warrior collection and they still have products left.
