  1. Fun!! I got two of the Mac Superglasses in Totally Bang and Fab Frenzy. In my occupation glitter is key. I’m a fantasy artist (yep that is a real thing!!) This weekend I get to wear my fairy finest at the MD Fairy festival where I will be selling my art in the beautiful sunshine. My 8 pets are totally the cutest and I am most looking forward to a long hot LUSH bubblebath on sunday when all the hard work is over. Have a great weekend. Love your blog!!

  2. Tiffany

    MAC’s mulch e/s, tempting e/s, flirt & tease blush, mineralize satinfiinsh liquid foundation, and zoom lash mascara.

  3. Guerlain Beige Chic meteroyites (sp?) and the indian eye kohl. I am not liking the eye kohl as you need to reapply several times just to get some color. It didn’t last on my waterline either. Just curious, does anyone know where to sharpen this thing? I also stopped by Mac and got a 187 brush,studio fix fluid and love nectar lipgloss. Done for this week except for the exchange for the eye kohl.

  4. Joy

    Haul: Mini Sized Too Faced Glamour Gloss & Sparkle Glamour Gloss
    Excited: Enjoy the sun and go to a board games night on Sat

    I’m on a hiatus from makeup spending. But I am so curious how you bought the rest of To the Beach when it isn’t for sale yet??

    • It was on Bloomingdale’s website.

      • Sarah M

        Also… It launched in the UK (and maybe some other countries – not so sure) on May 6th; on the website, and just yesterday, I think, at my local counter.

      I’m sorry you missed it, but maybe it’ll be back! I ordered a blush from the collection (Hipness) on Tuesday night. I went to buy some more stuff today and I was surprised to see that it was all gone! =(

  6. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Michelle Michelle

    Just got:

    -Urban Decay lipstick in Urban Cowboy
    -Nars lipstick in Canaille

    -Urban Decay Lipstick in Pistol

    I’m looking forward to spending a LOT of time with friends.

    This week I recieved my order from ELF, which consisted of 15 things, my favorites being a cool toned matte bronzer and some fun blushers. Beyond that I purchased GOSH velvet touch line perfector unique primer product, and the GOSH velvet touch eye primer. Looking forward to trying those out.

    This weekend I’ll be happy to spend some time out and about with my boyfriend, we have to pick up a new doggie bed for our girls.

  8. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Katie Katie

    I had a pretty big MAC haul but most of it was a gift for celebrating my first Mother’s day =)

    I got two paint pots in Coral Crepe and Groundwork. Four Lipsticks: Viva Glam Gaga and Cyndi, Hug Me, and Jubilee. Three eyeshadows in: Paradisco, Mystery, and Orb. Blushes: Pinch Me, Peachykeen, and Ladyblush. Then I got (from a CCO) Hello Kitty beauty powder in Pretty Baby and a beauty powder from A Rose Romance in Blush of Youth. I picked up Zoomlash too.
    I also got a NARS primer.

    I love hauls because the big ones happen rarely so I enjoy them a lot!

  9. Joanna

    Haul: I went a little overboard this week, considering I’m supposed to be saving up for To the Beach!

    I bought Superglass in Fab Frenzy; Lipstick in Up the Amp; a Rectangular mini makeup bag; and Essie’s Resort Collection (all four colours).

    Excited for: Great weather this weekend.

  10. I got a smattering of things this week: A few more Cream Colour Bases, the rest of MAC’s Pro Paint Sticks (all but white, which has been sold out since Halloween), TWO (yes TWO) more “Tunnel of Love” Superglasses, some old discontinued Loose Beauty Powders that I found at a few Pro stores.

    Then some stuff for myself: I FINALLY got another Sublime Shine Dazzleglass Creme for myself (I LOVE this one on me – Especially over Subculture Lip Pencil) and I thought, since I found myself bitching about them again last week, that I’d try MAC’s Plushglass again. I picked up Big Baby – Which I LOVE on my lips, but I still HATE the way it smells AND tastes and I have never felt even the slightest bit of tingle from these things. On the upside they do keep my lips SO SOFT so I like them for that… But I donno. Bah! LOL!

    This weekend? Who knows… Keeping my options open :) It’s SO SUNNY and warm and I’m about to leave the house to enjoy it!

  11. Diana B

    I went to my awesome local CCO and picked up C-thru lipglass (I couldn’t believe it),Mac Unbasic White eyeshadow, Mac Milan Mode lipstick. I love them all. Not doing much this weekend…I miss LA weather NY is muggy and sticky right now.

  12. milly

    I got a few things from MAC’s To The Beach Collection…Blush in Hipness…Marine ife High-lighting Powder, Bronzer in Refined Golden. Still got more to get in the weekend :)

  13. VEELii

    MAC cherry liner (for my ruby woo)
    liberty of London prim & proper blush (feel unsure about it ;/ )

  14. Carrie

    I got Totally Bang! Superglass and refill pans of Hush, Vanilla, Era and Arena eye shadows. Can’t wait to actually use Totally Bang!. It looks gorgeous in the tube.

  15. Brielle

    I ordered 1 of every item from To the Beach (Not including the Marine Life Highlighter, I bought 2 of those. One for using and the other for eye candy! lol!) and A few of the Shrek for OPI colors! I did a bit of damage on my American Express, but I had to celebrate my 1st mothers day (well, Im actually pregnant, but it counts to me!) somehow, right!?!?!? Love the Blog Christine, Keep up the good work

    Last weekend was a great one for beauty shopping!

    I had a major nail polish haul! At the moment in Ireland there is a Boots (drugstore) and Diet Coke promo where if you buy 2 bottles you get a free Nails Inc nail polish. Absolutely amazing! So I bought 6 bottles to get the 3 colours they had available! A mink/nude, purple and bright pink. I also picked up 1 pink and 1 blue Barry M nail polish. 1 lilac and 1 mint Revlon nail polish and a lilac Revlon lip gloss.

    I got to an Urban Decay counter to pick up UDPP and 24/7 zero liner. Sales assistant sold me a gorgeous eye palette too! Woops!

    Had my first Illamasqua experience. I got the illumie oil from the body electrics collection. Love it – not glittery!! I got the lip gloss in perform. Gorgeous red! So happy with my haul!!

  17. Beth

    I got two of the new Urban Decay eyeshadows, in Haight and Freelove.

    This weekend, I’ll be starting to look for another rabbit to adopt. :)

  18. Rita

    This week I got only nail polishes:
    – China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy and Sun Worshiper
    – Essie Turquoise & Caicos and Splash of Grenadine (LOVE both)
    – OPI Lucky Lycky Lavender

    This weekend I’m going to plant some summer flowers!

  19. Solange

    This week I got MAC´s Retro-Speck e/s. I hate it!!! I mean, I love the color but the texture is just so hard to work with. I regret this buy speacially since I am from Argentina and MAC e/s cost 27 dollars here!!!

  20. I recently acquired Make Up Forever’s Camouflage Cream Palette, and I love it!!
    I’m super excited to get together with my friends to watch some movies :)

  21. Vickie

    MAC e/s in all that glitters and tempting, Angel l/s, Just Superb cremesheen, another MAC 15 palette, painterly paint pot, fascinating eye kohl studio sculpt concealer(which i think im going to return) covergirl lashblast volume.
    Excited to go out to dinner with my 2 best friends to celebrate my friends 21st birthay : )

  22. Well, yesterday, I caved and bought the new eyeshadow palette (Pink, Party, Pretty) and their double-ended Kohl liner (Sassy in Sunrise) rom Lancome’s Bronze Riviera Color Collection. I was a little disappointed that they do not offer the same Lancome gift at the store, as they do on Macys.com. The gift set online was Definicils High Definition Mascara in Black, Color Design Sensational Effects Eye shadow compact in Off the Rack, Snap, Volcano, Backstage Pass, Statuesque and Daylight , and the Bi-facil Double-Action Makeup Remover. I did not get a free gift when I went to the store but the counter lady threw in a sample bottle of makeup remover. Surprisingly enough, this was my biggest haul in the last 4 weeks. The highlight of my week was taking my hubby out for BBQ tri tip and babyback ribs (for me) at our favorite restaurant. That’s me – makeup and food! :P

  23. Dawn

    I finally managed to get my hands on MAC’s Shimpagne MSF :) I had to buy the whole Fun In The Sun Kit to be able to get it here in the UK, though (didn’t want to import because of getting stung by Customs and the Post Office). As a bonus, I am liking the Nuance Mineral Blush that came with it – I would never have thought to buy that normally. Don’t think I’ll use the Play On Plums shadow, though.

    I also got NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils in Milk, Black Bean, Oyster and Cottage Cheese, NYX lipstick in Thalia and the Pixi Neutralizing Coverup Kit.

    Hoping to have a fairly quiet weekend, sorting out a processor for my new PC build, and trying to get an old PC working again.

  24. Sarah M

    MAC To The Beach stuff too!… but not everything. I would have to say my favourite things from the collection are the liners; both eye and lip! I also bought a few random bits and pieces – Bare Mineral’s Rocker Eye set, Chanel nail polishes in Nouvelle Vague and Riviera, and my gorgeous Dior single eye shadow in Golden Spotlight… Love!!!

  25. Rosa Napoleon

    I went to Victoria Secret on lunch break took advantage of 6 for 30 bath products. I got Sweet Dreams, Lost in Fantasy, and Secret Charm. I got the body butters for each scent.

  26. brittany

    well the only reason i can even post my beauty haul is thanks to my WONDERFUL momma!

    She bought me, Benefits tinted moisterizer, beige powder, badgirl eyeliner, moonbeam highlighter ( i believe its called or highbeam or something) and the kit for my eyebrows since i always have to color them in! since we spent so much money the lady gave us free lip gloss, lip stain sample and a few other samples!

    She also got me 3 new summer dresses and a top!

    i amm sooooo happy this week! lol

  27. Alexis

    UD Bourbon eyeliner
    Benefit Mermaid velvet e/s
    NARS bronzer – Irresistblement

    The new Sephora exclusive UD shadows are on my “LUST” list
    I was sadly disappointed that all their Dior Rouge de Serums were sold out and quite frankly their display is just janky looking.

    I’ll be getting highlights bright and early tomorrow morning. I have done it in 3 yrs and it’s quite the process because my hair is naturally black! That’s it for me- looking forward to a low-key weekend!!

  28. tiptoe shortbread

    Chromographic eye pencil, sun gold luster drops, 224 brush, virgin isle cream colour base and putina eyeshadow…..

  29. Faheema

    I brought three eyeshadows… just today aswell hehe
    I got Deep Truth, Satin Taupe and Shroom :)

  30. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Emily Emily

    I pre-ordered a TON of MAC To The Beach stuff…but I’m not gonna tell you what yet cause I don’t have it, so theoretically it will be posted next week. =) I did get Bliss Fat Girl Scrub and Fat Girl Slim (they came as a duo), Chanel Genial lipstick (exited! first Chanel lipstick every!), Chanel Orange Fizz nail polish, MAC Bare Study Paint Pot (ran out) and MAC Boy Bait Creemsheen lipglass (lost it!).

    This weekend I’ll be working (Yeah?) and planning wedding stuff! By the end of the weekend I should know what all my bridesmaids are wearing and have the invitations finalized. Yeah for no more school! I did get my grades back yesterday, and I got A’s. =)

  31. starr

    ive been very good and not bought anything im saving up because i expect a certain hole in my wallet in the upcoming future around may 27th :)

  32. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of aradhana aradhana

    the 3 LE eyeshadows from To the Beach
    float on by eye kohl
    marine life highlight powder

    this week i’ve been working on a website that i’m building (programming it from scratch, and i managed to sort out how to do a couple of cool things…it’s a LONG way from finished (or even half done for that matter!), but it’s exciting for me because i’m learning a lot of new things every day.

  33. Wendy

    This week I bought Lancome’s new Ageless Mineral PRIMER! It’s new and I can’t wait to try it – that’s all I bought this week!

    Since this is FFHF – I thought I would mention – and I’m NOT complaining because I LOVE your site and visit it many times per day!!!! I just thought you might want to know that the site has been running SUPER slow for me for about 2 weeks – the ads that load on the side take a long time to load and it bogs down the site – it’s difficult to navigate from one page to the other. I’m on a cable modem too, so it’s not a speed issue on my end. When I try to load pages I can see at the bottom of the browser window that it’s waiting for the “horizontal ads.php” to load.

    Hope it’s ok to post this here and again, not critisizing at all, I just know I want to hear from people when my site is running slow, or whatever.

    Happy Friday and I’m glad you’ll get a chance to relax this weekend!

    • Hi Wendy,

      The site loads fine – I know that the ads themselves load off of a third party server (not ours), so we can’t do any investigating into that ourselves. But I haven’t encountered any issues lately… I think maybe two to three weeks ago we had some overall server problems, but we’ve solved those since that point in time.

      What browser are you using?

      Since we can’t replicate the error you’re having, any help you could provide would be great! Thanks!

      • Wendy

        Hi Christine – I’m running Internet Explorer 8, it’s definately the ads that are doing it – their server must be slower than yours. Just now when I came to the site, it took about 20 seconds to load the home page, first it said “waiting for horizontalads.php” then when that completed it said waiding for googledoubleclick – or something like that. It’s not HORRIBLE or anything, it’s just a change that I’ve noticed.

        • But the content and the actual site loads? You can use the site, it’s just that the ads haven’t loaded entirely?

          • Wendy

            I can see the page, but the site is frozen until the ads load. So, I can’t scroll down to read an artical and I can’t click a link to go to another page. If I try to do anyting before the ads load, it locks up my browser altogether.

    • It’s the same with me, Temptalia.com has slowed down terribly over the last week or so. I thought it was my computer, but obviously not. I don’t know if it’s the adverts or what, but the pages take ages to load, I have a powerful computer, Internet Explorer and fast broadband and everything else loads quickly.

      • We haven’t changed anything in the last week that I can think of that would account for it. It’s not doing that for me in any of the browsers, but I will see what I can do. It’s always hard for us to fix anything we can’t replicate on our end. I’m really sorry :(

  34. I spent too much this week as usual, lol. However, I am very happy that I finally managed to find the Guerlain Meteorites Voyage Powder (Midnight Diamond) that I’d been wanting so much. It cost A LOT, but never mind. ;)

    Also I went to check out To The Beach in person (having placed an order online last week) and got another lipstick (Funbathing), lipglass (Flurry of Fun), Beach Bronze cream bronzer and Firecracker e/s. No more Mac for me until Superglass now!

    This weekend, well it’s going to be another dull weekend. I’m a bit fed up right now with being stuck at home so much, my husband has organised so much stuff for himself and our eldest, we can’t do anything as the whole family. At least I get to sort out my wisteria and do jobs around the house – yippee!

  35. Nicole

    Well, I bought my stuff last week, but I hope that doesn’t matter. I bought at my local MAC store e/s Black Tied and the Chroma-whatever in NC15/NW20.

    I haven’t played with the products yet, because I got a cold and I slept a lot to fight against that cold. My skin still looks awful, so I decided no makeup in the morning and non at night. I hope with doing more yoga and lots of sleep and 2l water each day, everything will be fine soon.

  36. This week I got 3 things from the Pret A Papier collection. The Coral Crepe paint pot, Instant Chic Blush, and Made To Order lipstick. I also picked up a wax stick for my brows. At Sephora I got the Sun Kit and the Nars So Famous Set. For drugstore buys, I just got a nail polish (Gray Suede) and a lipgloss (Lilac something) from the new Revlon collection. Geesh, writing this stuff down makes it look like a lot of stuff! Anyways, this weekend is my husbands birthday weekend so we will be celebrating all weekend! I love your blog!!!!

  37. nudibelle

    Just got back from shopping.. Bought MAC mineralize satinfinish spf 15 foundation in NC45 and the 187 brush.. Nothing but compliments since I left the counter my husband hates cakey makeup an was hesitant abt trying foundation..but he gave the thumbs up..

  38. nudibelle

    I also bought chanel vernis in illusion d’or its soooooo pretty!

  39. Kathleen

    I just bought Mary Lou Manizer from TheBalm. Best highlight ever. I’m in love. I also got my first four MAC eyeshadows; Trax, Jest, Expensive Pink and Antiqued. And now I think I need to go get Pure Hibiscus by Yves Saint Laurent.

  40. I’ve been ridiculously good about not buying makeup lately (like no makeup for 2+ weeks), so I did a little shopping at Ulta. I got NYC Color Cream blush in Pink Plaza, Rimmel Blush in Autumn Catwalk, Rimmel Bronzer in Sun Dancer, L’Oreal Lineur Intense in Carbon Black (LOVE) and Aussie 3 minute miracle deep conditioner.
    I placed a MAC to the Beach order on Bloomingdales but cancelled it this morning– I decided I should wait to see everything in person first (with the exception of Marine Life that I will definitely be ordering 4 of as soon as they hit the internets)
    Love Love Love your blog Christine!!

  41. Inga

    Haul: Mac Jest, Mac Naked lunch, Mac Petting pink TLC (nothing exiting, just some essentials)

    Excited for: For Wednesday after five, my final final is on Wednesday, I CANNOT WAIT to be done with this EC law thing, arg! Until then, trying to survive the final days of studying…

  42. cass

    i was good this week…until i needed some retail therapy haha. but all i got was the bobbi brown lip shine spf treatment in raspberry pink.

    but nothing else is going on other than the fact that i got my last two wisdom teeth out today! booo. have fun with your relaxing weekend?

  43. CeeBee

    I didn’t buy much this week, all I got was a Bourjois mascara set with 3 eyeliners in metallic black, green and copper – they’re incredibly soft and creamy to aplly, they don’t smudge and stay on forever!
    The mascara is pretty good as well, no clumps and quite intense pigment, Volume Glamour I think it’s called. Drier formula than Lash Blast but similar effect.

    I also bought a zebra patterned metal pill box with a plastic insert and salvaged a couple of half used, munted (dropped!) lipsticks by melting then gently into the compartments. Now I have my own little custom designed lip duo palette! So cute!

    No plans for this weekend, just lie around, read, eat cookies and do NOTHING.

  44. Nothing yet! I haven’t been able to do any shopping this week, too busy! If you can count my 3 minute trip to Sephora, you can count me repurchasing Purity Made Simple. Trying to save my money for the MAC release party on the 18th.

  45. Caryn

    Holy moley, I’ve had some huge haulage over the past week and a half (late birthday shopping spree)

    I went to my local CCO and bought 5 MAC pigments (Violet, Tan, Vanilla, Deep Blue Green, and Golden Olive), the Smoke & Mirrors holiday palette, and Sunny By Nature MSF.

    Then I went to my MAC counter and I bought Sweet Tart Superglass, Viva Glam Cyndi lipstick, brush cleaner, Copperplate eyeshadow, Malt eyeshadow, and another one I keep forgetting the name of. Prim & Proper blush from the liberty collection, English Accents lipglass.

    Also on the quest for the perfect foundation: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, Diorskin Forever compact, Lancome Tient Idole, and Lancome Oscillation foundation.

    Nars Albatross hilighter, and one of the new Urban Decay eyeshadows (peachy color)

    phew, my wallet is EXHAUSTED

    • Caryn

      oh! and of course, my To The Beach haul, hopefully it’ll show up one of these days! I bought the Marine Life powder, Beachbound lipstick, Lazy Day lipstick, and Firecracker eyeshadow!

  46. Mia

    Haul: Nothing! I’ve been a good girl this week :)

    Excited for hanging out with a could of friends, but i have some projects i need to finish for school tho :/

  47. Sharon

    Sadly, no haul this week… but last week, I got a lipstick from Bobbi Brown in Salmon… I like the color so I would like to have costa chic from MAC as well!
    And… I am dying to get a brown lipstick. My skin tone is C3, I think and what would be a good BROWN LIPSTICK color? (so I chic, not old)

  48. I got OPI Lincoln Park After Dark cause everyone kept raving about it. I don’t think it’s super special, but oh well! I needed a black, it pretty much looks like one to me. I also got Maybelline Dream Mousse blush, I forgot the color, just a pretty pink, it’s nice and creamy, blendable, but a little shimmery. I also got Fold and Tuck l/g, 188 brush, sable e/s, cultureclash l/g, I scored at the cco. (: That was actually a long time ago, I just think I forgot to post it. Lol. I love using my 188 with my mufe hd foundation.

  49. I spent way too much money at Ulta today. :D But there awesome sales going on right now!

    Going accessory shopping at Macy’s tomorrow (coupon of course) and no make up shopping this weekend. I refuse to step into Sephoria tomorrow:-)

  52. Roxanne

    Does it count if it was a birthday present from my lovely boyfriend? We’ve been together almost four years so he knows me well. He pretended to go to the washroom and took inventory of what mac products I already had, then went out and picked out ones he thought I’d like! Such a sweetheart <3!!

    Sooo.. I got:
    Eyeshadows: Aquadisiac, Atlantic Blue, Goldenrod, Silver Ring, Sunny Spot, and Very Violet
    Lipsticks: Ruby Woo and Viva Glam V! (I thoroughly love both of them on my lips! I put on Ruby Woo and he just wanted to kiss me. Silly boy ended up looking like a clown! lol!)
    And finally a kohl liner in Smolder!

    My meagre mac eye shadow collection has just doubled!!

  53. Max

    I spent too much money lately on skin care and make up.

    – MAC 190 Brush
    – MAC Paint Pot in Groundwork
    – MAC Fluidline in Rich Ground and Waveline

    – Origins A Perfect World Cleanser

    Grrr … there goes my money.

    • nicci

      nice haul! spending $$ on skin care products that actually work is never a bad thing in my opinion, your skin will be thanking you! :)

  54. I just got home from MAC, just picked up a few essentials: Fix+, Brush Cleanser, and Select Mousturecover concealer in NW25 for the undereye area.

    Mainly because I needed it and I have a wedding to attend tomorrow and I’m doing a bunch of my aunt’s and cousin’s makeup really early in the morning! So I’m super excited and cannot wait to see everybody :)

  55. Roxanne

    Oops, forgot to add that I picked up Urban Decay’s Primer Potion in Eden. I’m actually quite disappointed. The colour is fantastic, but my eyeshadow creased like CRAZY. Never does that with the original formula. I’m going to take it back to sephora and exchange for the original. *sigh* Just the mall is so far away…

  56. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Ophe Ophelia

    My haul this week was 2 Tom Ford lipsticks in blush nude and vanilla suede. I tried so hard to resist, since I want the whole Mac To The Beach collection. How could I resist limited edition lipsticks :/ especially since his color collection wont be out for another 18 months, sigh. Well, my wallet hates me, but what can you do :)

    I am totally relaxing this weekend. Catching up on the dvred shows.

    I got Bare Escentuals Gal Pal eyeshadow which is a pretty pink shade. I plan on heading to MAC on Monday when I go to the dentist.

    I’m at my boyfriend’s this weekend and we’re planning on dinner and a movie. :)

    I went out last night but nothing caught my attention but this morning I realized I really really need new mascara. If I can find a long lasting cream or powder blush in a color I like, I’ll pick that up as well!
