OMG!! The MAC MA made a mistake!! I'm NOT NW25! & NYX is HERE

Ok, I was kind of freaking out because I realised I might have gotten a wrong shade with my Mineralized Satinfinish, remember I got one about a week ago from that first MAC makeover? Yes, it turned out too orangey, too oompa-loompa for me, everyone could see it in the photos... *cries*
So today, I didn't exactly plan it, but I went to the MAC counter at Chermside, instead of the one in the city, and the MA (makeup artist) said to me "err, you are definitely not an NW25. That's too orangey, too dark for you, I think you're definitely an NC. Not NW." O M G, I could have died right there... hahaha... I know it's not the end of the world, but you know, when you have spent time and money and effort to find your shade and the one you finally got was the wrong shade... AH!



You know how silly I felt!! Ahh!! Why didn't I just go with my guts instinct last time and got the NC30 instead of NW25!! So I told her what happened, and how I've used 1 pump of the bottle but I think it's totally the wrong shade and I'm freaking out what to do with the rest of the bottle etc etc... and she was actually really nice!! She told me to bring it in and she said I can exchange it to the correct shade!! By this time, I thought I was already sweating... but then sighed a breath of relief. Phewwww...

I was checking out the concealers and yeah I am definitely going back tomorrow and exchange to a better matching shade. Geeeeezzz...


A swatch of MAC SELECT concealer: Left is NW25 , Right is NC30
I'm NC30!! the NW25 was too dark on me... *horror horror*

On a lighter note, I finally found an almost complete set/counter of NYX products!! *happy happy* because I've been wanting to try out NYX but there isn't that many NYX products usually in these stores such as Cosmetics Plus, Groove, and last time I checked only one of the stores in DFO Jindalee stocks NYX. But no worries now, because there is NYX counter in Chermside, just few minutes drive from where I live. Yay!! Here's a shot I managed to take (as fast as I could by just using my iphone) while the sales assistant was lurking behind me, probably eyeing me wondering why I was taking photo of the NYX display.

@yz: They're not as cheap as they are in US, but still cheap when compared to some other brands. ^^ I'll bring you there next time, after exams!!
