Weekend MAC Haul

On Saturday, I met up with Jill and Naomi for a trip to the MAC Pro store.

From the permanent line, I got Paradisco, Haux, Coral and Parfait Amour pro pans and Fascinating eye kohl.

I was excited to get some things from the new To the Beach collection. They were already sold out of a few things I wanted to get - Marine Life High-Light Powder and Temperature Rising lip pencil. I was also thinking of getting the Scorcher nail polish, but that was gone too and the collection had only been out at the pro store for a couple of days at that point. I guess I better hurry up and get the other things I want once the collection launches tomorrow!

I picked up Hipness blush, Rosemary & Thyme and Float on By eye kohls, and Firecracker, Sweet & Punchy and Sand & Sun eye shadows. Look out for a post with more pics and swatches of my To the Beach haul soon!

Zoya Charla Swatch

I recently bought my very first Zoya nail polish, in the colour Charla. Charla came out with the newly released Sparkle collection. I believe there were 6 polishes in the collection.

Zoya Charla
In real life, there is a lot more green and gold sparkle, but I couldn't properly capture it in a picture. I am so in love, Charla is such a gorgeous colour! I've read on other blogs that people are saying they need up to 4 coats to be opaque, but that wasn't the case for me, it looked great in 2 coats when I applied it. Another bonus is that this wasn't hard to remove like I thought it might be because of the glitter look to it, but it's very fine glitter.

I am definitely happy with my first Zoya and look forward to adding some new colours to my collection in the future!

Did you pick up any of the polishes from the Sparkle collection? Do you have any favorite Zoya colours?
