:: mac cosmetics & anya hindmarch christmas 2012 ::

It is end of the year and to me, it literally means 'stay-away-from-shopping-malls-months'. Why? Firstly it is the year end sale and secondly because this is the time where items like cosmetics, perfumes and handbags come in cute, pretty, to-die-for collections. Usually these items also come with this invisible tag saying "you will regret if you don't buy me" because as we knew, Christmas collection is always exclusive and limited just like this year's MAC Cosmetics Glamour Daze Holiday Colour collection. Yes, I never fail to keep up with MAC's Christmas collection every single year and this time around they are opening the campaign booth at KLCC Concourse Area since 7th till tomorrow, 11th November 2012. Nor and I were attending an event at KLCC last Thursday so we took the opportunity to take a look at the latest offer. 

They had this huge set-up in the middle of the KLCC concourse area but almost no customer was around that time, maybe because it was around 3:00 pm. However, we later knew the reason as we were poorly attended by a brunette sales assistant who treated us as if we did not have any money or in a nicer way, knew nothing about MAC *rolling eyes*. It was the first negative experience we ever had and even worst when she told us that the travelling pouch was sold out on the launching day whereas it was still available at the MAC outlet just across the booth. I also noticed that she kept on telling us to go visit the outlet and no wonder there were many customers there! As far as I know, most promoters at MAC promo booth are usually freelancers so too bad they were paying that girl for bad reputation and poor customer service. Such a waste! In the end however we were still happy because we were attended nicely and given free eye makeup by the sales assistant at the MAC outlet itself (forgot her name already) and she was also happy with Nor for giving her a big comission for buying few items.

Reflecting its name, the Glamour Daze Holiday Collection comes in sophisticated and glamour packaging consisting leopard print, lace print and exclusive chic, satin-tufted casings. Everything was so tempting (and again, come with the "you-will-regret-if-you-don't-buy-me" invisible tag) *sigh*. Colour pallettes for eyes are between shades of green, purple and brown with pink to coral to nude lips.

My personal favourite is the exclusive face kit (the one next to the brush set in pic above), which consists of a lipstick, a blusher, an eyeliner and a blusher brush in a pretty box with mirror inside that can be turned into a chic clutch. Such a good deal for RM315 and I am jealous because my BFF owns it now T_T. Apart from that, another favourite is the foldable cosmetic bag (pic right, second line) which is only RM135 (and Nor owns that too *double T_T*). That bag is something worth buying for makeup lovers and I am not surprise if it is already sold out because it is chic yet affordable . Anyway, you can go and check out the entire MAC Holiday 2012 collection at the nearest outlet.

After checking out the make up, we went to a special event by Anya Hindmarch entitled 'Dance with the Marano' in conjunction with its latest collection of Marano clutch, all thanks to my partner-in-crime Nor who got the invite. I never seen a Marano before and surprised to see the glitter clutch came with tiny colourful LED lights. Never seen such thing before and there was another one with some sort of snow globe at one of its side. Very creative, huh?

Besides watching the socialites mingling with each other and eating every type of finger food offered (we were both hungry because it was already 3 something and we didn't had lunch) we had the chance to check out rest of Anya Hindmarch collection in the store. Apparently, glitters are conquering this year's Christmas collection because they can be seen everywhere on clutches, handbags and shoes.

Each guest was entitled to take a photo and dance with the Marano inside a photo booth so here is yours truly, dancing with the lil glittery Anya Hindmarch Marano clutch :-)
