HauteLook is having a KORRES sale!

The sale is going on now at HauteLook! :)   I’m deeply, deeply excited to try more Korres’ products.   I loved their silicon-free primer, and I found holy-grail material in their tinted moisturizer.  As soon as I saw Korres was going up on HauteLook, I started saving, ha!

I ended up picking up pretty much all of those travel/mini sets.  (Hey, what better way to try a *ton* of products without spending a bunch of money?!)  I also picked up a body butter, body milk, the hair scrub, Thyme Honey mask, and the Olive & Rye cream.  Yeah, I went a little nuts.  I’m a beauty addict–I admit it!  That’s the first step :)

I want to hear about any hauls you make, too!

Do you use loose color? (Like MAC pigments, mineral eyeshadows, etc.) Why/why not? How do you use it?

Temptalia's Answer.

I do — mostly MAC pigments and products like it. I always use them with water-based mixing medium, though!
