    Excited for: A busy weekend, meeting and spending some quality time with friends and family. And excited that a good friend of mine is moving back (to our country) after a year abroad.

  13. silvia

    Hi Christine,

    great job for faboulous felines! I am thinking about aristo-cat. This week I got Chanel natural finish loose powder in 40. I always wanted a loose powder :) and I got benefit coralista for vacation. so much for me. this weekend we will be getting ready for travelling and cleaning the appartement.

  15. JayJay

    My haul this week was a GHD mkIV straightener that I found at Cosmoprof for 1/2 off! BTW, It’s AMAZING!

    I’m excited because like every week this summer, my man will be home from training today! The only difference, is this time I get him home for 12 days, instead of just the weekend. However, after the 12 days, he’s gone for 7 months :-( We’re just going to enjoy every day though, and not dwell on him leaving.

    My plans for today are running to Sally’s before he gets home, to see if I can find the Orly Cosmix polishes. They are supposed to land there today.

    Seriously, I think that is my favourite Mellan picture ever!! I laughed so hard when I saw it. Thanks for sharing!

  16. Corinne

    Haul: Got my E.L.F. order with every brush they make (had a code for 50% brushes), Mineral Starter Kit in Fair, and Mineral Glow in Shimmer along with a free sample of Shimmering Facial Whip. Still experimenting but love it all so far. Also got my Lush order with Lovely Jubblies lotion, Coalface cleanser, Tea Tree Water toner, Imperialis moisturizer, Saving Face serum along with 2 soap samples that I don’t recall. The face products appear to be helping out my combination/oily t-zone problems I have had forever. Can’t wait to try the Saving Face serum under the the Love Lettuce mask this weekend. Lush has been doing some wonderfully amazing things for my skin and I love that it doesn’t cause allergies to act up.

    Excited for: Having another kid free weekend. They are still with the grandparents camping and having a quiet house for the adults has been HEAVEN!

    Friday plans: Tonights goal is to be a vegetable. I am not sure which vegetable yet but it will be a vegetable. Perhaps zuchini.

  17. Katie

    Last weekend I got a new Cle de Peau Extra Silky Lipstick (#108), YSL Golden Gloss in #3, NARS eye shadow base, one of the new Guerlain Encrin eye shadow palettes in #10 – Rue des Francs – Bourgeois, a Terracotta Light Touch highlighter pen and a Guerlain Meteorites in the Teint Beige. I love all the products, but I am especially thrilled with the Guerlain products. Previously I did not own much from their beauty line, and this was a great introduction. The Meteorites are amazing, and I am truly impressed with the Terracotta Light Touch highlighter pen and the eye shadow palette.

    And, after spending a LOT of time at the Guerlain counter, I now desperately want a new Rouge G in #14 – one of the new fall colors, and one of their KissKiss glosses. I heart this brand now!

    Not really looking forward to the weekend – lots of wedding planning to do. Which should be fun, but I am telling you, weddings kind of bring out the worst in people! Bleh. At least I have some fun make-up to play with!

  18. Linnea

    Love the tie!

    Haul: Not much, picked up some Essie nail polishes last night in the middle of my crazy clothes haul.
    Plans for this weekend: Boy and I’s 2 year anniversary!
    Friday plans: Pack for said anniversary.

  19. leesie

    Haul: UD’s Woodstock shadow, a Sephora brush, a deluxe sample of NARS’ eye primer, and a Sephora birthday present. Oh, and the Sugarpill I ordered should be in soon (if it isn’t already; I get things delivered to my grandparents’, so I’m not exactly sure), so I suppose we can add Decora and Magpie loose shadows to that.
    Excited for: Three days of, so I can play with makeup. Also, the BOS Vol. III. I need to preorder that as soon as humanly possible, but I still haven’t heard officially when that will be.

  20. Amber

    Awh super cute Mellan – i always look forward to a new pic of him each week!
    This weeks haul – I hauled Burberry lip gloss in Cameo Pink and e/s in Trench – omg I looooove the buttery smoothness of the shadow! I have been experimenting with brighter lip colors and Trench is the perfect neutral shade to pair with a bolder lip for me!

    I also bought MAC Omega for my brows and I love that too – thank you so much for the reccomendation Christine!
    I am excited to end this week already – work is getting on my nerves today!

  21. Samantha T.

    I just love Mellan…he has so much personality!

  28. Katya

    Haul: Guerlain Champs-Elysees eyeshadow.
    No interesting plans for Friday and not much to be excited for over the weekend. It’s been a tough week, so I’ll probably just relax at home and get some much needed sleep.

  29. Rita

    I received today my Dare to Wear order. Gimme That! (looks intense!) and So Bad. I have not tried them yet, but So Bad looks a lot like Lush & Bright Lipgelée, only darker.
    Today I also ordered some Orly Cosmic polishes!

  30. Haven’t hauled this week-still working through last weeks haul. Three buxom cream eyeshadows(so far not thrilled) Buxom mascara, Lancome CILS booster lash primer, UD woodstock, Three NARS Eyeshadow duos, and a PILE of samples of nude-y rose lipcolors to review. So far my favorite is NARS Cruising.

  33. Anne

    Haul: three of MUFE’s new lipsticks (#s 4, 6, and 41) and Ingrid from China Glaze’s Vintage Vixens collection. (I now have a bunch of new nail polishes from the fall collections, but haven’t worn any yet, as I’m trying to get the most out of my summery shades!) I don’t think you’ve reviewed the new MUFE lipsticks, have you, Christine?

    Friday plans: A Single Man on DVD (love Colin Firth!).

  38. alex

    illamasqua rich liquid foundation in 105! it’s the colour of my arms and neck but my face was a tiny bit darker, so i’m mixing it with DW Shell and i’m actually ridiculously excited that i’ve got a foundation the same colour as my head! my face looks so much less grubby now!

  39. Rae

    Those are *some* teeth! I would not want to get on Mellan’s bad side 😛

    Haul: a bunch of fragrance samples off Etsy, but no cosmetics!
    Excited for: hmm. Lots of good stuff; I can’t decide on just one thing 😉
    Friday plans: out for dinner, dancing/drinks, and an improv show for my friend’s birthday. Sorry you have to do school-stuff! (Our term doesn’t start until next month, and Summer classes ended earlier this month for those who took them.)

  40. This week was really bad for my beauty spending. :( Firstly I went to London on Sunday and spent a lot there, I got 2 Dior quints (Misty Mauve and Sunset Cafe), the Enigma Chanel Quad and two new Glossimers, 3 Paul & Joe eyeshadows/palettes, the new No 7 eyeshadow quad and Front Cover Mermaid Dreams palette. Then I went to my “nearest” CCO on Monday (by nearest I mean just over 1 hour drive away (on motorway!), but it really is the nearest), and bought a ton of stuff including 6 old jar pigments, a 2008 holiday palette, an eyeshadow single, some lipglosses, lipsticks, and a few other bits and bobs from Bobbi Brown, Clinique and Prescriptives. I’ve also bought a Metal Rock MSF for far too much money just to find out that it doesn’t suit me at all. I’m torn between keeping it for my collection or selling it to recover most of my money. I also bought some stuff from eBay including a Laura Mercier eyeshadow, Warm Blend MSF (I swapped mine away and regretted it), the new Guerlain 4 eclats blush, Avon mineral mask and one of the old Guerlain Meteorites (Pearly Pink) for my collection. Oh yeah, and I got the new Urban Decay Book Of Shadows because they’re already available in the UK! Love it a lot! :)

  41. Nikki

    Haul: Nar sheer glow foundation, Nars face primer, Nars laguna bronzer, laura mercier secret camoflauge, opi nail polish in cuckoo for this color and nomads dream.

    We haved themed dinner parties and this week is tapas and martinis. Can’t wait for our little social event!

    Today I took the kids to the park and out to subway. Waiting for hubby to get home!

    Thanks for all your work on your reviews and swatches…I love it!

  42. vanelle

    Haul: Mac Book pro, itouch, and printer. Those are the boring stuff now to the fun stuff:
    Salsa rose blush
    Chai lipglass
    Tempting eyeshadow
    134 brush
    138 brush
    Backup of kraft lipstick
    Chanel vert khaki eyeshadow
    Might just drive to the south coast plaza mall to pick up some burberry eyeshadows. Antique rose and taupe brown. This lady at my job went and she picked up 8 eyeshadows, so I got to see which ones were great and which ones weren’t.
    And finally: Urban decay Naked pallete! *cue the applause*

    Mellan is a doll :)

  43. Jennifer

    Haul: A set of travel-sized brushes from Sigma, Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara, Guerlain Terracotta 4 Seasons Bronzer, and one of the Benefit Creaseless Creams (in Strut). I’m sort of tempted lately to do a Edward Bess haul, but it’s a little pricey (for EVERYTHING!) and you don’t get a lot of product. :(

    Excited for: If “nervous” counts as a kind of excited, I have a phone interview for a new job in an hour or so!

    Friday plans: Phone interview, a new haircut, and an afternoon nap in the shade. So glad I have a few more days of vacation before dreaded classes start!

  44. Dana

    Such a cute pic of Mellan! That tie is so him! LOL

    Haul: Fragrance – D&G #6 L’Amoureux and a LAMB bag I got from Nordstrom Rack (I know not beauty but I love it!)
    Excited for: Baseball game tomorrow night
    Friday plans: Nothing so far, maybe rent a movie

  45. Vijaya

    I got a refill on my Solodyn this week. It’s not exactly a beauty product because it’s a medication, but it’s a pill to treat acne so it sort of counts, right? I also got VS jammies and free stuff from school. No makeup, though.

    I went to my orientation yesterday. It was beyond boring. My school’s campus feels so big, I know I’m going to get lost on that first day! I’m beginning to regret my choice of school; they have a threefold mission (Catholic, Vincentian and Metropolitan). I didn’t expect them to have SO much emphasis on the first one. Being non-Catholic, I’m a little scared. The only reason I picked this school was that they gave me a full four year scholarship because of my grades.

    This morning I got an email from a few of the other schools I applied to saying it wasn’t too late to register for the coming year and it just feels more and more tempting.

  46. Cherie

    OMG Mellan!!! bwahahahaha!

    Haul: Nothing makeup wise but I did snag some sweet deals on clothes at Winners and Joe Fresh. Picked up a BCBG silk dress for $40 CND!

    Excited for: This weekend is so jammed full of things that I’m afraid I will need a weekend from my weekend…

    Friday plans: A surprise bachelorette (who she isn’t reading this…) for one of my girlfriends. Tropical theme so I am enjoying wearing my new sundress I bought for Cuba this winter :)

    Have a good one :)

  47. Beauty Haul: Shiseido Serenity & Spiced Cream lipsticks and LiLique Blush Brush.

    Excited for: Not really anything LOL.. just excited for relaxing, shopping, and doing whatever!

    Friday plans: Hanging out with the boyfriend and his cousin.

  48. Hannah D.

    Haul: I finally got over the hefty price tag and ordered a Clarisonic Plus! Can’t wait to try it out!
    Since Models Own had a great sale (50% off!), I ordered 6 nailpolishes.

    Excited for: Taking some time off this weekend, feels like I have been working non-stop lately!

    Friday plans: Catching up on some sleep after I get home from work!

  49. Elise

    Haul: have 60$ to spend at MAC and I have some friends that work at MAC counters that will sell my a quad tomorrow from the Felines collection early :)

    Hugs to Mellan- such a cutie- my looks forward to his pics now too! I hope he likes his new bed! Have a great weekend!

I also bought MAC’s Studio Fix, I bought that at the store because even though MAC cosmetics are expensive here (twice what they cost in the US, Studio Fix was 50usd T-T) it was my first time buying it and I had to be sure of the colour 😉

    Chanel Le Vernis Paradoxal & Jade Rose, picottee b/w Chanel Ribbon for collex, Chanel samples

    PWP Elizabeth Arden Red Door Beauty Box (2 awesome palettes in cute Red Door compact with (finally) a decent size mirror)
    MAC Liquid Lurex (couldn’t wait)
    Christian Audigier Laurel satchel (silver, but it has an amazing rosy interference near warm colors!)

    Excited for: most of Fabulous Felines liners (I swatched 4 of them and ran a wet finger over them 2 hours later and they still did not BUDGE!) and the Burmese Beauty lustre shadow!!

    Friday plans: Shop(ped) Sephora, then Dillard’s end of season sale (better bags clearance!!), nommed burgers@Steak&Shake, collapsed in Pour Monsieur-scented pillows and power-napped.

    Hi, I am Mimi, new here and new to beauty blogging. Your blog is wonderful, TY for the Fabulous Felines promo pix you generously shared, this collex will be the first full one I attempt to review! I am starting journal-style on my FB, with my niche emphasis on skin care, bolder color, and general style for women 30+
    I would love to see more tutorials (the video+page info format is perfect) and more of your good advice for new bloggers!

    (blablabla, but I did not want to just jump in cold with a comment, I always feel rude if I do! 😛 )

    Of course I can’t let a Lancome giveaway at Macy’s go by! Believe it or not, I have never bought lip gloss–have many, many lipsticks, but no gloss. I have so many lipsticks my daughter says I need an intervention.
    The sales lady showed me La Laque fever in Plum Wave–beautiful and couldn’t resist.
