I was excited to go to MAC in the weekend. I knew I was going to buy Studio Fix Fluid. It was $60 NZD ($48 USD), which isn't too bad, and what I was expecting.
I'm not going to do a review of Studio Fix Fluid, as I know a lot of you use it. But I will say that I absolutely love it. It lasts for ages, and I don't look greasy at all! I am an NC15 and I use a translucent powder over top. I will definitely repurchase this when it runs out. So glad it works for me! My friend bought it too.
Here is where the problem starts. I was going to buy one or two MAC lipsticks....I asked the girl at the shop how much they cost. $40 NZD!!! That's ridiculous! I couldn't believe it. ($31 USD). Considering you can buy them for $16 USD in America, I think that's pretty unreasonable to charge us $40. So, as you may have guessed, I didn't buy any. I'll wait until I can go on holiday to the US!
I also got the OPI Katy Perry Black Shatter Polish. $27 NZD is a bit much in my opinion, but I really wanted to try it out. It's pretty cool, I need to play around with some different base colours though. I've tried a teal colour and an electric blue so far.
I just wanted to do a quick post on that, a proper 'haul' post will be coming in the next day or two. I didn't actually buy too much, as I want to save for going to Melbourne next month.
Here's a look at what I wore to the Katy Perry concert though:
My friend on the left made that dress herself!
What do you think of the New Zealand prices for MAC makeup?
