First, I’ll share mine!

I’ve actually been very good and haven’t bought any new makeup since the last FFHF!  I’m so proud 😛

  1. I haven’t hauled for months! I haven’t had time. I need to rectify this STAT!

  2. In the last 2 weeks I got a new concealer from MAC and my order I placed in October from LimeCrime came in the mail. 2 lipsticks and an eyedust. Other than that, nothing.

    • Cindy

      PLEASE – let us know what you think of the lipsticks, and which colors it was that you got. I havent found many reviews yet, and would like to hear more. Ive been thinking about getting My Beautiful Rocket, since MACs Morange totally dries out my lips. I love the color, but need to find it in a different formulation. If these are good, it would help me make up my mind.

    Well, I haven’t been quite as good as you, but I don’t mind because I’ve managed to buy the Guerlain Meteorites Cherry Blossom Voyage powder on eBay for about 25% less than the normal price and it won’t even be available in the shops until next year! :) Just waiting for it to come now. Very excited about it! :) I also got a Chanel Glossimer in the shade of Courtisane that I’d been trying to find since I saw your review on it, but it’s not available in the UK for some reason. Found it on eBay for a very reasonable price, and it’s so pretty! Yay! :)

    My last haul was yesterday from Mural and I got Cargo’s 7 in 7 Light/Medium kit (I’ll actually be timing my makeup routine using it), two Lippmann nail polishes and a Cargo eyeshadow quad.

  5. daphne

    I was about to say I’ve been good too. But then I remembered I picked up some semi-free stuff, haha :) I have an Amazon credit card, and I’d built up enough points for two $25 gift certificates. Sephora is an Amazon vendor, and I didn’t have anything I *needed* to spend that money on…! :) I was trying to keep it as close to exactly $50 as possible, but went a little over – I got MUFE HD Foundation (118) and a trio set of Benefit Full-Finish Lipsticks that was only $18! I’d gotten samples of the MUFE HD before but never sucked it up and spent the money. I’m very glad I did, though I need to find my favorite brush for applying it. I always find myself tweezing off 109 hairs that shed onto my face when I use it!

  6. DJ

    last week I bought 2 Chanel items–the cake liner set in Celadon-Lamé (LE) and Rouge Noir/Vamp lipliner to wear under the Obscure lipstick I bought a few months ago (I wear Amourous dazzleglass creme over it my fav lip combo if late)…not nearly the haul I wish I could have had 😉 but I will be patient and wait for extra money/gifts.

  7. a YSL palette from beautyticket!

  8. retrofox

    I took a trip down to my local CCO yesterday and grabbed (all MAC):
    Flash-N-Dash l/s (Fafi)
    Vanitys Child (love!)
    Viz-A-Violet pigment
    Mauvement pigment
    Evening Aura e/s (Neo Sci-Fi)
    Signed, Sealed e/s
    Love Connection mineralized e/s

    Nothing too exciting since they always have these items and never seems to get new stock : (

  9. Last night I bought Volturri Twilight eye shadows and a lip gloss. I heard about them on the radio since Twilight and the other movies are filmed here. Theres so much buzz around the movie, I thought Id see if the makeup would be any good. Not that much this week 😉

    • Forgot to mention getting Jimmy Choo for HM platform shoes, furry vest and leggings. Plus a dress shirt, wallet and belt for my man. :) Im a shoe addict 😛

  10. Jen

    I bought my first Guerlain lipstick (Gabrielle)… Its a bit pricy, but, I thought Id treat myself and see how it goes. I also got a nice haul of China Glaze polish (I HAD to have the green one!), and a couple other MAC/UD lipsticks.

  11. RebeccaC

    Hmmm, this week:
    Brush #14 (bullet shaped, small) I like it!
    cream shadow in Mykonos, havent worn yet
    Bobbi Brown:
    eye shadow in Saddle, wanted a flattering neutral/dark for my hazelly brown eyes — wearing it today, jurys still out.
    Ruby Sugar lip gloss, looking for more pigmented gloss — this is pretty good.
    Rouge Dior Serum de Rouge in Beige Serum — regret

  12. amy

    I havent bought anything since the Sephora VIB 20% off sale and I dont plan on buying anything until at least after Christmas. Though I will try to challenge myself until MAC Lilyland collection. I will buy skin care items though.

  13. Tattoo Girl

    I got two Benefit Creaseless Cream shadows at Sephora last weekend for $10!!! Couldnt pass that up. I also got Plumage e/s, Margin blush (ran out), new Studio fix powder, Chrome Yellow e/s and Vex e/s from Mac.

  14. Sexy Sadie

    Today I bought ten lipsticks from Make Up Factory. It was to for the price for one, and I could not resist.

  15. Cherie

    I had a nailpolish haul this week…

    OPI – You Dont Know Jacques! Suede, At First sight, Top coat + Base coat (for the price of one!)

    Gosh – Bright Passion

    Sally Hansen – Xtremem Wear in Stobe Light
    (WARNING: this is Xtremely hard to get off! More so than any other glitter polish Ive used. Made me not want to wear it again)

  16. makeuplover514

    Hmmm, let’s see. Corporate madness ensues at work so I’m still doing my retail therapy;) Sometimes I so wish I had a low stress job *sighs*.

    My recent haul was:
    -Dior Forever Fdn. in Ivory, amazing (returned Nars Sheer Matte cuz it sucked)
    -Philosopy lip gloss in caramel apple
    -Nars creme blusher in Penny Lane
    -Nars powder blusher in Love Joy
    -OPI Merry Berry mini xmas set
    -OPI Dulce de Leche

    Tonight I’m going to a ‘bring you own wine’ peking duck resto and maybe karaoke! TGIF!

  17. Val♥Temptalia

    When Too Faced had their FF I finally got the Teddy Bear Hair brush set in the pink metallic bag. Im so in love!

  18. coco72

    I need a NARS Multiple in Copacabana for my Christmas gift, BUT… in spanish counters NARS products are too much expensive than in the U.S., there is no one in auctions in Ebay :(

  19. DonnaN

    I bought two of the Milanni Glitter Cream palettes on Sunday….other than that, Ive been trying to resist. I do have to go to Sephora/Mac on Saturday to do some exhanging/returning, but I am trying to resist spending any *NEW* money.

    • DonnaN

      OK, so I didnt end up doing half-bad! I returned and exchanged stuff at both Sephora and MAC and between them both I only ended up spending TEN more dollars–SCORE!!

      At Sephora, I exchanged my unopened CARGO Hands of Hope shadow palette and Eastern Eyes eyeliner set—the palette was TOO big…Id have no where to store it, and the container itself doesnt seal-so back it went. I also returned the set of TARTE Three Carats Mini Cheek Stain set—all three of mine were dried-out and felt like sandpaper when I applied……so instead I got:

      NARS The Multiple Coffret
      FRESH Sugar Lip Treatment Stick
      MUFE Aqua Eyes eyeliner in 22L (Silver Grey)
      SEPHORA Healing Eucalyptus Cuticle Oil Pen (weve been focusing on nails here lately, so I should try to get mine into shape!)
      SEPHORA In-Cap Pencil Sharpener (this ones for my lip pencils)
      + I cashed in 100 of my BI points and got a tube of Philosophys Hope in a Jar SPF 20 face cream…its to keep in my makeup bag

      Over at MAC, I took back last weeks IMPULSE buy of the DO-THE-TRICK Holiday Brush set. After getting it, I went back and read reviews which stated that the manufacturing processes are so much better on the individual brushes—I thought Id made the wrong choice. The HUB-STER concluded that I should just wait until after the holidays and then start to add brushes, one at a time…..great guy, huh?

      So, in place of the brushes, I picked out FIVE more single shadows for my PRO•PALETTE….Blackberrry, Girlie, Shroom, Trax and Twinks.

      Next couple of weeks are gonna be tough ones for me….Sephoras got a free KatVonD tote this coming week for BI only, if you spend $50.00 or more….so, Hubby needs a new cologne, right? (That way I can count it as a Xmas purchase…..)

  20. Megan

    I got my Sephora order today! I picked up Sephora by OPI cuticle oil and nail polish in Set the Mood and Nars Duo in Brousse…I already love the eyeshadow. I think it will be great for a nice purple/brown smokey eye!

  21. aramis

    omg i think i been a good gurl this whole week or week and a half i think i only bought the classic eyes from mac of last year for only 10 dollars on ebay..but today is payday so you know what that

  22. Christy

    I got a couple Tarte cheek stains at Sephora and a mini on eBay (full size in Green Siren and Tickled, mini in Tipsy). They are great!

  23. Roxanne

    Hmm, let’s see. I just ordered an UD set with 9 24/7 liners (didn’t have many choice in colors though, it was this set or nothing!). I also ordered a few things from e.l.f.: dark blue n/p, light pink n/p with glitters, brown eye pencil, eyelash curler (better than the MAC one IMO) and a very light pink blush (a little too light actually though it still looks nice). I also got the 116 blush brush because the 129 just didn’t cut it for me (too big, doesn’t place color right, bleh).
    And oh! I just won sth at another beauty blog but I have no idea what (it’s supposed to be a surprise) :)

    Not too shabby, eh?

  24. After I got paid last Friday, I went hauling:

    Clinique Cranberry Cream butter shine l/s
    UD Greedy lip envy stain
    Chanel Rouge Allure lacque in Ming
    MAC Blue greasepaint stick
    MAC Shezam dazzleglass
    Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes
    OPI for Sephora nail drying drops

    I hadn’t done something like than in a while and I had a 20% off sephora coupon, soooo… :)

  25. Christina C

    I ordered Conjure Up blush from MAC today. I hope I like it!

  31. Constance

    My Sephora VIB haul last week was supposed to be it for awhile!lol! I got some new eyeshadows and lip glosses from Evil Shades, 5 try me sizes in My pretty pink sample bag, and a Wal-mart Hard Candy haul! Ive been wanting to try the Hard Candy line again….got 2 baked eyeshadow duos, 2 eyeliners, a lipstick, a lip pencil, and a nail polish. Ive always been a sucker for the cute little bottles of nail color with the plastic ring. Must be the little girl still hiding inside me somewhere!

  32. I bought a heep or guerlain products from bronzers to glosses! I love their packaging! It soo luxurious!

  33. Beautywise, all Ive hauled this week is Lushs Santas Rice Porridge face mask and an Avobath bomb. Now if we were talking clothes…thats another, more costly story!

  34. Elizabeth

    I decided to try Coastal Scents so I hauled the 28 Neutral Palette and the 88 warm palette. I love the shadows, but the fallout in the palette is pretty annoying. I also got Himalayas, Faith, and Nepal eyeshadow from the NARS sail. From the Urban Decay sail I hauled the eyeshadows in roach, x, sin, baked, half baked, maui wowie, and blaze. I love all these sails, its just hard when theyre all at once. This months been pretty big for me and Ive really been trying to stick to the neutrals… =)
