Free for Haul Friday

Welcome to Free For Haul Fridays!

A play on Oh No They Didn’t's “Free For All Fridays,” every Friday is Free For Haul Fridays! Friday is a day for fun — whether you’re already off enjoying your weekend or if you just need a way to get through til the end of the work day, FFH is here for you!

Share your latest beauty hauls! Once you’ve done that… say anything you’d like. Tell us about the greatest thing that happened to you this week, why your pet is the cutest, what you’re doing this weekend… whatever!

First, I’ll share mine!

Haul: NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base in full size!   Zoya Color Lock System + 32 oz. Remove+.

Excited for: NO MORE SCHOOOOOOOOL! FREEEEEEEEEDOM!

Friday plans: Get in some Mellan & Mommy time for sure!  Catch up on the DVR…

This week’s Mellan photo…

Yesterday, I was in San Francisco for a NARS preview event, and I gotta tell you, Mellan was not pleased when I left in the AM.  He came to the gate (he sleeps in the kitchen–in his own bed–with a gate up) all wiggly and expectant, “Where are we going?”


All you brought back was this lousy folder?


REALLY, Mom?  You don’t even take me with you, and then you do this…
I expect treats!  Lots and lots of treats for this kind of abuse!

So i checked out the event last Sunday… Picked up Melon, Golden Olive and Rose pigment, Vex and Style Snob eyeshadow, Virgin Kiss, Speak Louder and Crosswires lipstick, cleansing oil and false eyelashes :) There were so many eyeshadows from the Starflash collection… i regret not picking up “back-ups”… boo hoo… maybe next warehouse sale…

  4. virginiaisforluvrs

    Haul: Clinique Eye Makeup Remover, Touchbase for Eyes in Canvas Light and Nordstrom GWP; Bobbi Brown Pink Glisten and Creamy Lip Color in Coral Pink; MAC lipsticks in Chatterbox and Crosswires. I am the most excited about the Coral Pink lipstick. It’s the perfect salmon-y pink color for my rosy pigmented lips! I’m so glad I found it!

  5. Sabrina

    Lets see, this week I got (or ordered) The Balm Hot Mama (yay! and at 30% off!) and some mascara (which I’ve finally decided to start wearing).
    Good thing I didn’t answer this question last week. *blushes*

    I’m trying to decide if I want to go back to CCO and pick up a Mac Beauty powder or MSF trio. I am so indecisive lately. I wish I could take you shopping with me! LOL

  6. I recently did a small haul, because the battery on my car died and lost me $100. I got 2 MAC Plushglasses in Power Supply and Big Baby!

  7. Li Ming

  8. Samantha T.

    Awwww…I look forward to a new Mellan pic every Friday – he is so sweet & has such a wise look on his face!

    Haul – Aubrey Organics Rose Hip Oil – I’m getting this for use around my eyes – every eye cream burns/stings my eyes…so I’m hoping this will work! Organix Cherry Blossom Ginseng Shampoo/Conditioner – smells so good! Laura Geller Blush-n-Brighten in Berry – so pretty!

    Plans – Hoping to do some gardening & cooking

  9. Rae

    no haul but i’m proud of myself for saving money! had a brilliant weekend last weekend so try to catch up on my dissertation work this weekend before a meeting with my supervisor! eeek! enjoy your freedom – studying for exams is quite evil!

  12. Hendrix

    I’m in San Diego for vacation right now and can get to Sephora and MAC in 20 minutes on the trolley — dangerous concept. The other day I picked up Speed Dial and Plum Dandy, and Bare Escentuals gloss AND a foundation/brush set. I’d never tried their powder foundation before, but the woman there matched my skin perfectly with it, so it might be the one for me.

    In other news, my boyfriend is coming to visit this weekend while I’m nearby. We’re long-distance and this will be the first time in 6 months that I get to see him.

    (Not sure why my first comment attempt spontaneously posted itself. O_o)

    • Uh oh!!

      What have you done in SD so far? I hope you’re enjoying your vacation!

      • Hendrix

        I’ve been to the zoo, went out to La Jolla to see the sea lions and Cabrillo for the tide pools. I haven’t got a car so mostly I’ve been wandering the city and taking the trolley. I’d like to get up LA way, but damn if train tickets aren’t $70!!

  13. Rosie

    I’ve actually bought some stuff! Face wash and moisturizer (not so fun). But I did finally buy Sweet and Punchy and a full size 219! I tried the Summer Fun Look you recently did and used Paradisco and some UD purples with Parfait Amour and Deviant and Flipside and it looked awesome! Thanks for putting substitutes in you looks :). People really liked the look.

  14. Rosie

    Oh and I’m going to Santa Barbara tomorrow for three days for my sister’s graduation. So that should be fun :).

  15. ledonatella

    Haul: NARS Bang On Blue Cream shadow duo, OMG I cannot wait to get this in the mail, this looks so hot and I don’t even care for blues but I love this

    Best Thing About This Week: Just got back from vacation and I still have 4 more days before I have to go back to work, yay!

    Picking up my first 239 brush today, I’m so excited!

  24. Amber

    Hey Christine – yay for no school!!!!!!

    I just hauled from Sephora – Lancome has a LE Juicy Tubes set with 3 shades that I have been lemming and it just went on sale! I also got the Stila e/s trio for 10 bucks and a bottle of Clinique DDML – I have used up every single sample and finally had to buy a full size – lol.

    This weekend I’ll be helping my friend look for a house in Albany NY. I am hoping to move there myself – I need a change!

  25. nicci

    Haul – going to get eye-shadow primer since I ran out…wore shadow w/o it yesterday and what a difference primer makes, wow!

    Excited for – tomorrow getting my make-up put on at Laura Mercier. The SA talked me into it since they are having an event tomorrow at Nordstrom. Never tried anything from this line so it should be interesting.

    Excited for: The weekend and some hot weather finally!

    Friday plans: None so far, but tomorrow I get to go suit shopping with my boy!

  28. hahahaha the last pic of mellan, adorable!!!! =)

    This week I just picked up stuff from to the beach..
    Lazy Day l/s
    Beachbound l/s
    Splashing l/g
    Sweet & Punchy e/s
    firecracker e/s
    Sand & Sun e/s
    Hipness Blush
    Beach Bronze Cream Bronzer
    Unfortunately I was unable to find Marine life, they are sold out everywhere..

  29. Haul: nothing? hmmm… actually nothing? go me! no wait… muf black glitter from sephora :P

    Excited for: i don’t know. this week has been rough (lots of emotional things going on) so i’m excited for things to calm down a bit? no… more hopeful that things will calm down in time (jay’s gran passed away so it’s been… well… it is how it is i suppose, you know?).

    Friday plans: we did our dinner last night but it was nothing special this week for food – mostly just getting together for the company and relaxing :) consequently i’m walking around all day today thinking it’s saturday (because we pushed the dinner party up a day). saturday is pride (downtown is already full of rainbow flags – lol – which i love for living in such a small town, they do rainbow flags all through june) but i’m not sure if i’m going… last year i had a client who was playing so i went to support her but this year she’s not playing (rehearsing with her new band though – which is exciting).

    if jay wants to go out (and if the weather is nice) we may pop our heads out and go see a friend or two down there but otherwise… it’s an excuse for being out in public in wild makeup (but i never need an excuse for that) lol!

    • LOL! Wow, I can’t believe your haul was so little! IMPOSSIBLE!

      Sorry to hear about Jay’s gran! The passing of someone close (even if it’s someone close of someone you’re close to) is always had. I hope things start sorting themselves out over the next week :)

      • Thanks… I hope so too. We’re dudes weren’t not used to this level of emotion! LOL ;) Seriously though, he was really close with her and I’m not used to him being visably upset about things (I’ve seen him cry maybe… Three times in 9 years?). Hmmm… Not sure what to say after that…

        Let’s change the subject! (Then I can go on with my day LOL) How long are you out of school for? Do you take summer quarter off?

        • Subject change, K!

          I’m out for about two months! Law school is on semester, so while that ended in mid-May or so, business school is on quarter, so that just ended early June. Law school starts back up mid-August. So, two months!

          • fun! do you ever go anywhere fun on your time off? anything planned this year?

            • LOL, not really. My idea of a vacation is only if you can’t TELL I’m on vacation! I have an unhealthy attachment/obsession/work ethic when it comes to anything that’s *supposed* to be daily. I won’t leave it alone.

              I think the only break this blog has ever had is when I got a pretty nasty flu that completely knocked me out. I’ve never been that sick before, and I could only get a post or two per day unfortunately for about a week!

              Last year, we spent a week in Tahoe. No idea if we’ll do anything this year or not!

  30. Dini

    Haul: TKB Trading order, two Bobbi Brown Metallic Cream shadows, and a vegan lipstick from a shop on Etsy

    Excited for: Nice weather this weekend after all the snow and rain lately

    Friday plans: Dinner with a friend I haven’t seen in a long while

    • What’d you get in your TKB order, Dini?

      • Dini

        I got a make-your-own lip balm kit, a big pile of mica samples in great colors, some pre-mixed eyeshadow-base type thing, and a bunch of tins and jars to store my new colors and maybe press some eyeshadows! I also got some empty palettes, so I will be on a MAC depotting spree. Can’t wait for the package to arrive.

  31. DJ

    No haul for me but the greatest thing that happened this week was that I finally got a Wii Fit Plus! Have a great weekend!

  32. Brielle

    Haul: Last week at Nordstrom’s cosmetic Trend Show, I snagged the Tria light laser for acne, a new Clarisonic Body Brush, a Clarins tanning mousse (LOVE IT!), and a Mac Soft Sac since my large one ripped :( !!!

    Excited for: Next week is my trial (im an attorney, this is a pretty lame excitement lol!)! Also time for some mommy and Maddy time (my 7-month old baby, Madison)

    Friday plans: I have a rehearsal dinner for a wedding i’m participating in tomorrow night :)

  33. I can hardly believe how little I spent on make up this week! I didn’t buy anything in the shops, only bought 2 things on eBay (a Mac MSFN and one of the new Guerlain singles (L’Instant d’un Baiser), but the latter hasn’t come yet), and got a CP from a lovely lady on MUA in Hong Kong (Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Pink Oyster). That’s it. :O

    Excited for… ugh, not much, it’s been a long and very hectic week (my husband was away for 4 days and I was on my own with 3 young children) and the weekend is going to be busy too. But it is my little boy’s 4th birthday today, so that’s really lovely, and it’s his party on Sunday which he’ll love (although it’s a lot of work for me). :)

    Going to see Bon Jovi at the O2 Arena in London next weekend though, very excited about that for sure. :)

    • Pink Oyster sounds so pretty! Why, why international exclusive!

      Aww, what kind of birthday party is he having?

      • I hate exclusives! Everything should be available to everyone. It’s really annoying that Asian exclusives are usually the prettiest shades. :( But now I have a CP buddy at least. :)

        We’ve got 5 children coming, so it’s gonna be quite low key, bouncy castle in the garden, party games, party food. You know, 4-year-old stuff. :) Should be fun, especially if the weather’s good.

  34. Vanessa

    hahahaha! AWWWWW! Mellan should be the new spokesperson for NARS!!

  35. min

    Meow cosmetics foundations/sunsplashers some blush and bronzer samples..
    large size bourbon 24/7 and an eldorado mini..

    … AND I LOVE THEM ALLL. Especially the sunsplasher and foundation. My new HG mineral makeup i’m so happy I’ve finally found my colour match after a long painful process with much ordering of samples from many many companies D:.

  36. Jasmine

    Haul: Clarisonic!!! I love it so much!

  37. Sonia

    Haul: my 3 yr old spilled an almost full bottle of MAC fix + so this time I decided to try something new and bought the All nighter spray from Urban Decay, I tried it already and it does work! I also got Benefit’s confession of a concealaholic kit.

    Friday’s plan: watch the WorlCup all day and clean the house in between the game periods. My favorite team to win is Mexico, then US, then Brazil. Love Soccer!

    Have a great weekend everyone.

  38. NeenaJ

    Haul: NYX eyeshadows from Cherry Culture (mostly MAC dupes so I can try some of your looks without breaking the bank): Copper (Coppering), Rust (Cranberry), Luxor (Stars n Rockets), Mermaid (Humid) along with Crystal & Gold glitter eyeliners for fun.

    Also picked up a bottle of EZ pressing solution from Coastal Scents so I can hopefully press some of my Bare Minerals e/s.

    Excited for: taking my son for his first studio portrait on Sunday. He’ll be 7 mos old next week. (Time FLIES!)

    Friday plans: Cleaning (UGH!) before the in-laws visit on Saturday.

  39. Cherie

    Congrats on your summer of fun, Christine!!! Must deserved :)

    Haul: OPI’s Shorts story, mini cuticle cutters, MUFE HD Blush in #14 Star Struck and some cheapie summer shirts. I want to grab Honeymoon Sweet nail polish as I hear it’s discontinued now…

    Excited for: My new blush!!! And hopefully planning some of our USA road trip with the bf :)

    Weekend plans: Seeing some friends tonight and helping some family members move.

    Happy weekend all!

    • Thanks, Cherie! Hopefully I get what I want to get done, haha!

      What kind of road trip are you going on?

      • Cherie

        Even if you just veg for the summer – who cares?! Enjoy it!!! :) Once you start working you don’t get a summer.. trust me! I wish I had taken more time off before starting my career.

        I live near Toronto (Canada) and we are planning a scenic drive through east coast USA and maybe end up at Myrtle Beach – any suggestions of places to hit on the way?? Secretly I’m hoping to hit some CCO’s on the way since the cloest one to me is in Buffalo. :)

  40. Eva

    Aaaw, poor Mellan!
    Did you make it up to him? :o)

  41. CeeBee

    Awww, Mellan is SO pretty with his ribbon! LOL! Poor baby!
    And YAYYYYYY for no more school!

    Haul: Not too much – To The Beach arrived in NZ and I have Funbathing and Thrills on hold until I get up to Auckland week after next. I ordered TheBalm e/s in Luscious Lani and a back up of Just This Once Jamie (which I adore) and Estee Luader Peach Nuance blush – then I found Pink Nuance already in my stash, I forgot I had it, LOL!
    Also picked up Jordana lipsticks in matte Nude and Burgundy, which is a soft shimmering rose red and utterly gorgeous. And only $3! Smells like watermelon too!

    Excited for: Mid Winter Christmas lunch at my mothers house on Sunday – roast chicken, crispy potatoes and other vege plus lemon and passionfruit curd and cream topped pavlova for dessert, ummmmmmmmmm! And presents, yay!

    My Friday: Sucked actually. Someone at work screwed up something MAJOR for one of my key accounts and I spent most of the day doing serious damage control :-(

    • Oooh, fun! Were you excited for To the Beach to launch? I hope you like both lipsticks, though!

      You are making me SALIVATE over your mid-winter Christmas lunch… argh!

      Sorry to hear about your work day :(

      • CeeBee

        Yes, pretty excited about TTB – I get pretty excited about anything MAC though, since I don’t get regular access to it. I bought Humid last time I was in Auckland and will check out the eye pencils as well! And I will probably get Soft Ochre because I am LOVIN Bare Study Paint Pot!!!

  42. Kathy

    Went a little MAC crazy this week. :)

    I got their eyeshadows in Bronze, Humid, Ricepaper, and Woodwinked. I also picked up one of the lipsticks in Myth.

  43. montygrl4131

    I made it through the week without buying anything. Well some Aveda Shampure and Air Control, but I don’t really count those-LOL.

  44. April

    Haul: DermaNew at-home microdermabrasion kit w/ replacement foam applicators & creme from HauteLook (50% off retail!)

    I’ve been meaning to try it out since I saw Kandee Johnson’s YouTube video about it but didn’t wanna pay full price for it. I really hope I like it.

  45. AnGeLwInGz

    Urban Decay Woodstock eyeshadow, Dior Iconic mascara and Lip Maximizer.

  46. Emily

    Since the Mac pigments are released at counters now I got: Vanilla, Golden Olive, and Lemon, plus another bottle of nailpolish top coat. I had also ordered and received in the mail Mac Moisture Lush Face Cream, 4 (15) Pro Palettes (now for the de-potting lessons), Newly Minted, Cork, Wedge, and Soft Brown eyeshadow, and Cosmedicine Self-Adjusting Exfolitor. I also got MUFE #4 Aqua Cream, UD Lucky Eyeliner, UD Aquarias eyeshadow, Philosophy Purity travel size, Smashbox Photo Finish Lite travel size, and a Korres Guava package with a lip butter, shower gel, and body butter in it. Then travel size shampoo/conditioner from the Body Shop. (I’m going to NY soon, so I figured might-as-well get all the travel stuff when I have coupons.)

    So exited that this weekend I finally get to spend time with my man! Somehow I managed getting two days off in row! (which is hard when you work retail, especially considering those two days are on a weekend!)

  47. Claudia

    awwww my highlight of today is the mellan pic of the week. such a cutie pie =)

  48. Christy

    Haul: Chanel Collection Essentielle De Chanel palette in Romantique, I think this will go well with bright summer lipsticks. I bought my 14yr old daughter Tokidoki Adios eyeshadow palette and the Tokidoki Bastardino single eyeshadow.

THAT WOULD BE AMAZING!

    This week, I picked up some products from Pacifica’s website because they offered me a discount code for their “secret” sale. I picked up Tahitian Gardenia perfume spray and Egyptian Bergamot Rose Body Butter and Perfume Spray. Last weekend I visited the Seattle outlets and at the cosmetic outlet, I bought MAC’s MSG in Porcelain Pink and Clinique Even Better Skin tone corrector gift set. I got both a great discount prices. Lots of great discounted and discontinued goodies there. No more makeup buying for me until the end of August, I am going to TRY TRY TRY to enforce myself a no buy until the end of August and only buying essentials for skin care.
