    Hi Christine! Happy Friday! My last haul was MAC Liberty of London. I’m holding out for their summer collection which cannot be here soon enough. I have really high hopes for their body oil!
    Cheers, Elizabeth B

    Hauled my FIRST ever Chanel Glossimer!! I got it in bikini peach. I am so in LOVE! Seriously…I think this may have to trump my Shu Uemura glosses.

  13. kathie

    I have some back to mac stuff so, I’ll plan on picking up either a dazzeglass in Moth to Flame or an eyeshadow in Straw Harvest if it’s still available at the MAC store. Also need some facial cleanser so, I may go ahead and get the gel cleanser (the green one) as well.

    Excited about Mother’s Day as well. Going to church and then a movie with my three year old and I may cook a home made soul food dinner.

    Happy mother’s day to all the mothers.

  15. Kelly

    I finished all my undergraduate course work yesterday!

  16. Brittany

    Yesterday I finally received 4 Urban Decay pigments that I got at the HauteLook sale a while back!

  19. Jen

    Ah, it wasn’t really much of a haul, but I finally purchased Chanel Genial. It’s so cute and perfect for summer!

    Otherwise, I’ll be chilling in my apartment studying all week!

  20. Michelle

    My latest mini haul was a Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick in “Comedia” and a Chanel Glossimer in “Courtisane” Loving both!!

  21. Eda

    Haul: My MAC package arrived in the mail today. It included Cherish and Vegas Volt lippies, plus Beautiful Iris and Nocturnelle shadows. I love most of them, but I’m not too crazy about Cherish. It’s quite brown, which doesn’t look great with my fair, rosy skintone. Topping it off with a gloss helps, however.

  22. Avatar of Hanneri avroys

    Haul: Bobbi Brown blush brush, Bobbi Brown eye liner (Caviar), Bobbi Brown Calypso Glaze metallic lip colour (yeah for a coral that NW20 can wear!), Clinique Happy Heart gift set (perfume, body cream, body wash)
    Excited for: Not so much – my sister and nieces are leaving after a visit of 3 and a half weeks – going back to Australia (I live in South Africa) and I’m not sure when I’ll be seeing them again :-(

  23. It’s been a very BIG week for me hauling-wise. :)

    Firstly I got several items from Pret-A-Papier and To The Beach. (TTB is only out online in the UK, coming to the counters next Thursday, but they’re already sending the otders out. Will go back next week to check out the e/s and lipsticks and lipglosses I didn’t order (only got Thrills l/s and Splashing l/g (plus Marine Life and Hipness)).)

    Secondly – very excited about this – I finally found a BNIB Guerlain Meteorites Voyage Powder in Midnight Diamond that I’d been wanting for AGES! I had to pay full price for it (ouch!), but I really really wanted it. Now I just have to wait a few days for it to arrive. :)

    I also picked up a few other things including 6 new L’Oreal Glam Shine glosses (love them), Chanel Glossimer in Bikini Peach and a free Chanel Genial lipstick (free with my Boots point). :) Oh and few things from the new L’Occitane make up collection and Body Shop summer collection.

  24. vickie

    For the first time in a LONG time I have no haul :( I had to put myself on a no buy for makeup since I was buying wayyy to much all the time lol…so I’m not allowing myself to buy any makeup until the to the beach collection and then none again until the digi pops : (

  25. Hayley

    Haul: 3 Body Shop shadows in Pink Champagne, Baby Pink and Violet Shimmer; Mac’s Lala and Expensive Pink shadows and Just Superb cremesheen glass!

  26. Haul: Urban Decay: Pigments from Haute Look: Baked, X, Asphyxia, Rockstar & Gunmetal,
    Mac: Prep and Prime Lip, Sugar Overload Super Glass, Stars & Rockets Eyeshadow, Star Violet Eyeshadow.

  27. starr

  28. Jennifer

    Dolce and Gabbana Lipstick in Soiree
    Chanel in Madamoisselle Lipstick (SP?) lol
    MAC Superglass in Cherry Electric and Superflash!
    YSL Faux Cils Mascara Black
    Badgal Mascara black
    Diorshow Iconic mascara in Chestnut
    And Benetint Lip Balm.

    Right now I am awaiting FEDex for the D and G and Channel L/s’s …It’s hard though when you bought them on your parents card without them knowing and you at least want to hide that you got them as long as you can…Waiting here looking out for delivery is not easy on the nerves lol…I just had to have them though.

  29. Avatar of Jackie Jaqueline

    This week I bought:
    YSL lipstick No1
    Mac Pearlglide eyeliner in Blackline
    Mac eyeshadows in Sumptuous Olive, Ricepaper, Quarry, Shadowylady & Gorgeous Gold
    15 Pro palatte from MAC

  30. CeeBee

    I finally got my hands on Industrial and Blackline, plus picked up Humid and Seedy Pearl e/s and Bare Study paint pot. It seems a bit stiff and a tad diffcult to apply but I shall persevere. I’ve only done one look with it so far (for work yesterday) and it lasted so well. Just wish it was a bit softer and more creamy to apply.

    Oh well. Picked up an Estee Lauder e/s palette from strawberrynet, 7 lovely shades including pink, matte ivory, deep purple blue and a couple of browns. Gorgeous.
    Plus a red Signature Hydra Lustre listick, double ended wand with Double Wear mascara and concealer and a Pearl High Gloss. Very pretty!
    Oh and a Bourjois e/s duo, a warm shimmery pink and bright iridescent violet. Surprisingly good pigmentation and very soft and smooth to apply. I ordered a Bourjois mascara and metallic eyeliner set, that should arrive next week.

    Excited for a friends 30th birthday party tonight – I am making 2 dozen cupcakes today and wearing a fabulous black cocktail dress tonight – gonna do a smoky gold eye and red lip!

  31. Avatar of Emily Emily

    I got Circa Plum Pigment and Fairylite Pigment, Archetype Paint Pot, a free birthday kit from Sephora, and a free 500 point gift with lots of Korres goodies in it. I’ve been pretty good, for me, this week. =)

  32. Avatar of Emily Emily

    Oh yeah! I’m sooooooo excited for the end of exams and no more school! =D Now begins the wedding planning!

  33. Mia

    I got Viva Glam Gaga lipstick which looks a little pornstar on me since im of a darker skin tone, so i can’t wear it but i still feel good about buying it since it does go to a good cause. Also got Estee Lauder More Then Mascara which is LOVE!! It lengthens and defines which is awesome! Also I got Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in Samba-dy to Love which is pretty but it does crease soo kinda defeats da purpose lol and the Benefit girl was soo nice and gave me a free lipstick in Sugar Cookie which is now my new favorite lipstick!!
    Im excited for this big dance tonight that im going wit a couple of friends so dat should be fun! :) Good luck on ur school Christine! Ur such a hard worker :)

  34. amy

    I bought the Sephora OPI Nail Lacquer in Read My Palm and Essie in Splash of Grenadine. Oh and I completely forgot about the MAC Superglass, darn it! I wanted to pick up Cherry Electric.

  35. Avatar of Margot mkdallas

    I hauled the new Too Faced nude lipliner & Glamour Glosses in Flirt & Sex Pot(all from Summer 2010). They are currently offering a 30% discount on their website: code TFDC30. Got another Glamour Gloss at Ulta in Pillow Talk. These are fabulous products; great pigmentation, minty cool flavor and very pretty colors (some with shimmer, some matte). I also hauled (thanks to this website) my first ever Rouge G in Guerlainade. Horribly pricy, but a 10% discount at Sephora knocked it down by $4. It is gorgeous; could become an HG very quickly for me.

  36. I just ordered a bunch of stuff online, 4 backups (not kidding!) of black line because it literally became a new staple, undercurrant pearlglide, zinc zone, dirty and the black shade of greasestick, bare study paint pot, utter fun lipstick and dollymix blush. PLUS chanel glossimer in venus, rouge allure laque in phoenix and laura mercier lipstick in hydrangea. (i may have been a little inspired by your summer season posts!!)

    it’s definitely a lot, however it’s probably the last big make up purchase i’ll make for a while soooooo it’s okay, right?

  37. I’ve purchased way too much.

    Urban Decay Big Buddha brush, 24/7 Superstash, 24/7 Stereophonic, 24/7 Hi-Fi, too many pigments to mention (11 of them, in fact)

    Mac Liberty of London A Different Groove lipglass , Deep Plum blush and my first Fluidline in Blacktrack and a 208 angled brow brush.

    And then a trip to CCO where I picked up Mac Stark Naked blush, Pen n Pink eye shadow, Rollickin’ paint pot and Beelightful iridescent powder.

    My wallet is weeping.

  38. Nicole

    My Chanel counter finally received the summer collection so I picked up the Rouge Allure in Genial, and the nail polishes in Nouvelle Vague and Mistral! I wandered around Sephora earlier this week considering other things but managed to walk out without buying anything…so I’m proud of my self control. LOL.

  39. nicci

    Last night my boyfriend bought me Chanel Double Perfection Compact. I tried it on and loved it. I had to wait almost 3 weeks for it! They were out and had to order more. It was worth the wait! :-) Replacing La Mer loose powder.

    This weekend I am cleaning, didn’t have time and was so tired during the week cause long work hours – tons of overtime! yay!!! LOL! :) oh and seeing my mom tomorrow to take her out to lunch.

  40. Avatar of Janette Janette

    I hauled for essentials i was sad i had to put all my make up in storage i hope all my lippies dont melt!

    i got this week
    Nars Sheerglow, loving it so far
    NArs Primer
    Benefit High Beam
    oh the beauty blender! I am loving it! Best tool ever! Better application then any brush, still love my mac brushes tho lol

  41. Chanel black velvet np
    China Glaze for audrey np
    China Glaze peachy keen np

    I’m about to order schiap (thanks to you :D)

  42. Oh I’m late! But this week I turned in my Zoya Exchange polishes (12, and the new ones are supposed to get here Monday!! :D), caved on their 3 free Hot Lips glosses promo (so I only paid shipping), and I bought two R&R blushes off Editor’s Closet (with $30 in credits so I paid $19). I think I did a pretty good job at not overspending this week and I’m SUPER excited for everything to get here! :D

  43. Dawn

    Since Pret A Papier and To The Beach launched simultaneously here in the UK, I spent rather more than I wanted to, but I’ve learned from past experience that you have to order straight away to be sure of getting the items you want.

    I got Coral Crepe Paint Pot, Chromagraphic Pencil, Instant Chic blush and Made To Order lipstick, Firecracker eyeshadow, Float On By and Rosemary & Thyme eye pencils, Thrills lipstick and Hipness blush.

    The Marine Life powder and the 131 brush sold out very quickly (I didn’t want them anyway) so when they come out where you are, if you want them you’d best get in there quickly. With the Pret A Papier, the Groundwork Paint Pot is the only thing that has sold out so far.

    • Dawn

      Almost forgot – I also got Too Faced’s Pink Leopard Bronzing Powder and Too Faced Eyeshadow Insurance Policy which has the Shadow Insurance plus 6 eyeshadows. Each came with a free pink makeup bag containing a mini Lash Injection, a mini Mirror Mirror Lipgloss in Don’t Hate Me and a mini Starry Eyed Liner in Mad Mad Love. I got these online from Boots, and the offer was supposed to be one free gift when you spend over £20 on Too Faced, but it’s given me a freebie for EACH £20 spent on Too Faced. I’m not complaining :)

      • Dawn

        Oh, and I won a Benefit Lipgloss in Fresh Squeezed through Cadbury Flake (code on inside of wrapper, entered on website for instant win).

        It’s a lovely colour and smells really peachy too.

        I now have 2 lippies and this gloss all won from Flake, and another gloss on the way :) I love freebies and prizes!
