However, when the package from Mhean arrived --- my prize from her Earth Day contest, [thanks again, sweetie] 6 empty pans of MAC e/s which I would exchange for a tube of lipstick, it was well, very fortunate of me. But since I had to visit the MAC Store in Glorietta, I had to have that resolve not to buy anything now. And guess what? I'm actually good at it! I left my purse and my wallet in the car which made me push back all the retail lust that was building up as I was walking towards Glorietta 3, past The Ramp, Rustan's and finally, MAC. In a way it felt stupid because as I was there, I realized I needed to buy a pair of shoes for a new dress I will wear for a wedding. But that's another story -- and yes, I must forgive myself on this one.
I'm proud to say that I walked away of the MAC Store with only one tube of lipstick, in Giddy, nonetheless.
I originally wanted to snag the Frost shade in Bombshell but it was out of stock. I read from the Kikay Pinay's blog *waves at Shen* about Giddy and saw that it was a nice pink, not like in my photo and poof! :)
So yeah, MAC Giddy makes up for my hauling ban [at least for makeup and I don't even know how long this ban will last] plus the MAC Liquidlast Liner in Blue Herizon, which Mhean threw in to package as well.
What is your technique to prevent yourself from buying stuff during
self-declared hauling bans?
