The last makeup purchase I did was somewhere in January. It felt like a million years ago since I bought makeup for myself. Living in Vietnam has its own perks but for a beauty blogger, it ain't fun. Too many skincare products and not enough makeup. And even for the makeup that I could find, they were so expensive. A MAC eye shadow costs $14.50 USD back in the States. It actually costs around $30 here, not the $19.50 international price we see on the MAC LE price list.
Not only I miss makeup, I miss drugstore makeup. Nothing is as awesome as finding nicely pigmented eye shadows on sale and I had a coupon. I don't get that kind of deal over here.
Recently, I found a shop that sells nail supplies near my place. Lucky me, it also has a variety of makeup. Not as expansive as the U.S drugstore but the quality is good and the price is right. You can't believe how happy I was when I hauled home a whole bunch of stuff.

|I was extremely happy to find this baked eye shadow (baked a shadow was a typo, I believe!)|
Sivanna Colors is a Thai brand, btw
|This pan is huge|
|And look how beautiful it is!|
This eye shadow reminds me of something MAC produced in their first mineralized eye shadow collection ever. Look at the veins, so pretty!
|The trio I bought is from Honey Professional, a Korean brand|
|The colors are shimmery and pigmented.|
This trio reminds me of the Vincent Longo one I almost bought a while back.
Who says makeup doesn't have motivational power, huh?
