  14. Tanja

    Haul: “Aristo-Cat” l/s, “Wildly Refined” l/g, Superslick Eyeliner in “Smoky Heir” and “Tilt” e/s

    IΒ΄m excited, because I love the color of Aristo-Cat soooo much! IΒ΄m thinking about getting a backup for the first time. Christine, do you know how long you can store a lipstick, before it goes bad?

    Friday plans: playing with new makeup πŸ˜‰ and finally seeing “Inception”

    • If you don’t open a lipstick, it shouldn’t really go bad. It may lose its scent over time (even without use), but it should be fine for a couple of years sitting unopened.

  29. Keener

    Haul: OPI Sephora – Let’s Do Lunch, Going Nude Eh?, Nonfat Soy something something, eyelash curler from Sephora, which I hate, my lashes are long and my Revlon curler was doing a great job but it would pull my lashes lately. So frustrating. These days I go without curling or even mascara.

    Return Haul: Took back MUFE Aqua cream in fuchsia. I thought I could definitely find a use for it and I’m always attracted to that colour because it’s bold and playful. Wanted to use it as an eyeliner so badly, but I tried and tried but it didn’t work. Never applied consistently, I would layer it on so the colour would show up evenly but that got cakey. My first make-up return ever.

    Christine, I just saw the Givenchy Le Prisme Blush in Blooming on the Sephora site. I don’t know how old this is, have you done a review for it? It’s an online only product. It looks pretty and of course pricey. Don’t know if I could ever shell out the money for it, but I’m very curious about it.

    Big haul this week: ordered several Edward Bess products (3 lipsticks, 2 blushes, 1 highlighter) online which I am waiting for, Guerlain Rouge G in Gilian, Tom Ford lippies in ginger fawn and bruised plum, and new chanel extrait de gloss in emoi. I’m a bit of a lip product junkie.

    Excited for: seeing an old college friend tomorrow!

    Friday plans: playing with my 2 daughters.

    • How are you liking the Tom Ford lipsticks?

      • Bina

        I love them! Totally addicted! I have several now. It’s one of my top 3 favorite formulas (also love rouge coco’s and rouge g’s!) The colors are beautiful and classic with great pigmentation and last several hours. They are matte and have a lovely creaminess to them (but not too much, no slip). They go on with a slight sheen, though not as much as a rouge g. If I’m not in the mood for a matte lip then I just pop some gloss on over. Are you planning on reviewing them?

        • I reviewed 3 Tom Ford lipsticks, I believe :)

          • Bina

            oops, sorry about that. I see them now. I should add that I’ve been following your blog for several months and I think you are fantastic. Having completed a graduate degree myself, I don’t know how you do it all but I think it’s great! None of my colleagues/peers are interested in makeup and few even wear much. Sometimes I feel silly for having this interest, so its really nice to see someone like you!

In the meantime I’ve already bought the following beauty loot: Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimiteds in BR 710 (LOVE), PK 308 (too sheer for me…) and the last bottle of their Face Architect foundation in 964 (the counter is going bye-bye at the end of this week ;_;), Paul & Joe eye gloss in 05 Murmur, Josie Maran’s Argan Oil lip treatment (this is going back, it’s doing nothing for me =/), and a lavender Castledew nail polish and some nail art rhinestones.

    Super excited to be moved into my new place and starting grad school next week!! Also super excited for IKEA trip tomorrow (I have no furniture except a twin size mattress which my landlords are lending me – they’re AWESOME ♥) and dim sum with my aunt across the bay on Sunday! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  75. I’ve only done a very small haul this week as I’ve been away visiting frends and family, but I did pick up one of the new Guerlain palettes (Rue de Passy) and the Dior Cannage Palette at the duty free shop. :) Really wanted the Champs Elysees one, love that purple, but the grey shades are all very similar, so I’ll need to see if I can find it cheaper on eBay. πŸ˜‰

    I am very excited about having been to my favourite band’s concert last night with one of my best friends, and meeting all the guys in the band and having my photo taken with them. :)
