    Friday plans-work. Tomorrow the man may be spending time with his cousin, so I’ll probably be hiding upstairs, playing with makeup.

    Last thing I watched-30rock.

    My dog is the cutest because he hates my cosmetics. I love watching him lick the delicious skanky skin oils off the mans face, delicately sniff mine, and go right back to scouring the man.
    Looking forward to your halloween challenge! I just did a look I think I may want to use, if none of my other sketches turn out better!

  9. Haul: As VV hasn’t launched in the UK yet (next week!), I’ve managed not to spend too much this week. Picked up a bunch of Guerlain Abeille Royale serum samples on eBay as I really wanted to try it, plus a Chanel Glossimer and Givenchy lipgloss on eBay, got 2 Mememe (UK brand) and one Sleek blushes and 3 Urban Decay eyeshadows (I got Mary Jane!) the other day in the shops. I did also place an order for 2 Guerlain Essence de Glosses and Bpbbi Borwn Black Sparkle eyeshadows, but they haven’t come yet, so doesn’t count. 😉

    Friday’s pretty much over, so I’ll do weekend plans: hoping for a relatively quiet weekend at home, and trying to fit in some sorting out (clothes – mine and children’s), doing homework with the girls, being lazy.

    Last this I watched: Watching The Bucket List right now, watched How I met your mother last night, plus some children’s telly in between.

    Mellan’s very cute as always. :)

  16. Carrie Ann

    I picked up my VV haul. I got there at 11 this morning and was told they’d already sold out of several things. (Glad I pre-paid.) For some reason, my MAC counter only put the collection out today. I live in a small town, but still not surprising. I got Sinister l/s, Devilishly Stylish l/g, Revenge is Sweet l/g, Strange Potion l/g, She Who Dares e/s, My Dark Magic e/s, Briar Rose b/p, and Oh So Fair b/p. Can’t wait to try everything!

  17. Haul: My VV Haul which was
    Innocence Beware
    Wicked Ways
    Devilishly Stylish
    De Vil
    Dark Deed
    Toxic Tale
    Sinister (had to order since my MAC sold out when I realized I wanted it)

    Friday Plans: I had a surprise lunch with the hubby, and tonight I plan on watching The Little Mermaid with my daughters

    Last thing you watched: Haven’t turned on the TV today yet, but last night I watched yet another lifetime movie lol. It was only 2 hours this time.

  18. Kate & Zena

    OMG, that first toy you threw–the one that screamed–sounds just like the screaming orange welcome mat we had while I was growing up. We always had a ton of candy left over after trick-or-treat day because all the kids (and we’re talking military kids here. We’re our own brand of tough) were TERRIFIED of the Screaming Mat. I was only scared of it when I forgot it was there. I was clever and found ways around it or I stomped on it for fun. My brother was as terrified of that mat as all the other kids! The Screaming Mat died after some kid decided to be mean to the scream box. Poor Mat!

    I so totally need that dog toy.

    Haul: I finally got my Temptu Retouch Blush & Highlighter Set I won from Bellasugar! Yay! I’m going to TJ Maxx tomorrow to buy a new ASB (Airport Security Bag, aka the bag I carry everywhere). I think I may cry saying goodbye to the old one; it’s been my faithful companion the last four years.

    I also bought some plum ribbon for Zena to match her harness and leash for when she gets blessed at church on Sunday. She’s going to hate me because she’s getting a bath tomorrow because I refuse to let a dirty dog get blessed. She has to be shiny, shiny clean.

    Friday plans: Think of a plan to get Zena into the bathroom without my carrying her up FOURTEEN stairs. She’s fine once I get her into the tub, but getting her there is the problem. I have to chase her all over the house.

    Last Thing I Watched: My DVR’d House and Law & Order: SVU episodes.

    • It’s great, LOL! Martha Stewart screaming toy or whatever. I think it was $10 or $11 at Petsmart. :)

      We had a screaming man for many years. Stuffed with newspaper and looked like a skeleton, screamed when you came near him.

      Mellan is really weird. He will go into the tub all by himself. I just point and he goes into the tub all sulking. Then he just sits there looking like a sad sack!

      • Kate & Zena

        Blame the fact he’s a Labrador (they love water).

        I have to stay on my toes; one plan doesn’t work the same twice with Z. Zena is smarter than she looks. She knows she’s screwed once I get her into the tub and gives me that, “You’re really going going to wash ME?!?!” look. Before that, I’m chasing her down the stairs, all over the living room and kitchen, down the basement, up into the living room, etc. It’s exhausting!

        • He does love him some water, though he definitely doesn’t enjoy the bath. He enjoys watching people shower and trying to catch the droplets, LOL. But he is also a perv…

      • Kate & Zena

        Oh, be thankful Mellan gets in the bathtub for you! It likes a Roadrunner and Wile E. Coyote cartoon in my house! However, Coyote (yours truly) actually catches Roadrunner.

        Zena is officially a new dog…or a sacred one, depending on how you look at it. She’s been blessed. AND, she beat Oreo (my aunt’s dog) out of the park. Everyone LOVES Zena, I tell you. EVERYONE. I don’t how she does it, but she just charms everyone. She turns her head and POOF! every person circles around her asking about her. It boggles my mind.

  19. Marcela

    Mellan is so freakin’ cute, LOL!

    My Haul in the past week: Venomous Villains! Probably spent about $200 total but I don’t even want to tally up the receipts!

    Sinister Lipstick (Evil Queen)
    Devilishly Stylish lipglass (Cruella)
    Violetta lipstick (Maleficent)
    Revenge is Sweet lipglass (maleficent)
    Magenta lip pencil
    Darkly my Dear blush (Cruella)
    Hot House lipglass (Evil Queen)
    Orly dupe for Formidable nailpolish (Maleficent)
    Orly dupe for Mean&Green nailpolish (Maleficent)
    Deep Truth eyeshadow

  22. NatalieK

    OMG! I got ANOTHER email from mac, this time saying that I might not get Strange Potion l/g, so in a fit of anger, I bought another Strange Potion and Nars Zulu and Mash. Oh and like 20 China Glaze polishes AND Orly Space Cadet and Galaxy Girl. yikes!

    From VV, I got:
    Strange Potion l/g (maybe?)
    Heartless l/s
    French Quarter GPS
    Wicked Ways l/g
    The two mineralize eyeshadows
    Resort Life lipgelee

    And I just got my BOS III, Illamasqua Baptiste n/p, and the Boscia black mask from Sephora!

    Phew, I think I’m good until Christmas!! The last time I hauled was at IMATS in June with some early birthday money, so I’m really happy.

    Weekend plans: Ick, study for an ochem midterm Monday :/

    Oh, PS, Christine, do you know of any nice moisturizers for oily skin? I think you have more normal/combination skin, but I was hoping with your infinite wisdom, you could recommend a few. ;P

    • Hey Natalie!

      Okay, so for oily skin, you want a moisturizer that talks about being “lotion” and stay away from creams. I don’t know, you might know that, but oh well! Lotions are thinner, creams are heavier. Technically, “oil-free” is also a nice buzz word for a good moisturizer for oily skin… but not regulated so you might want to look at the ingredient list, too. I do like Kiehl’s Daily Moisturizer – it’s not quite enough for my slightly drier skin, but it’s lightweight and minimal.

  23. Lynn

    Haul: More VV stuff: picked up my pre-order last night: Truth & Light magically cool liquid, My Dark Magic, Devilishly Stylish, Formidable & Bad Fairy nail polish, Bite of an Apple blush, Vainglorious e/s (ok, I think I ordered Revenge is Sweet somehow Vainglorious made it to my bag? LOL), Wicked Ways lipglass- that’s all from VV~ From Hautelook: Stila e/s in Tolima, Kamet, Shore & 24Kt lipglasses in Vintage Merlot & Brilliant Pink + jeans & shirt at GAP!

    Friday Plans: just chillin’ at home

    Last thing you watched: Chelsea Lately

    Aw, Mellan is so cute. I love Labs – had a yellow one who looked like him for 14 years, now have a lab/beagle mix who is about 3 years old. Mine loved their squeak toys too!

    As for the questions:
    Haul- my VV stuff came in today, I only got Vile Violet and Her Alter Image from it. I’m regretting not getting the Revenge is Sweet gloss, and now it’s sold out. Also got 2 lipsticks I had wanted – Hug Me and Blankety.

    Plans – had surgery last week so am still lying on the couch. Plan to do that all weekend too.

    Last thing I watched on TV – ugh, what haven’t I watched in the last 10 days LOL. Last thing was the movie The Fifth Element, which I’ve seen 100 times but still don’t mind watching.

  29. Anna

    Haul: A nice selection from VV:

    Pardon the iPhone pic. The packaged item is a backup Bad Fairy. I actually ended up loving Mean and Green so much that I want to go back and hope to get a backup of that one, too!

    Friday plans: After I got out of class, I was so wiped out that I just slept until 8 with the boy. It was glorious. It’s been raining nonstop in NYC, as I’m sure you know, making for perfect sleep weather!

    Last thing you watched: My Girlfriend is a Gumiho. It’s a really cute Korean drama and I saw the last episode yesterday 😀

  30. Vijaya

    I bought Heartless, Sinister and Dark Deed lipsticks, Wrong Spell lipglass, Briar Rose and Oh So Fair Beauty Powders, and Darkly My Dear blush, along with Bad Fairy and Mean and Green nail lacquers.

    I’m thinking about getting the mirror too, because it was so nice and flat. I was very sad that Formidable! was sold out. I usually never buy nail lacquers, but these I absolutely loved.

    I also bought a new shirt and bag. Totally gorgeous. They’re from a semi-expensive brand (Desigual) and I’m veeeeery happy I got them 20% off.

  31. SiaM

    Haul: Just purchased an empty MAC quad. Now I’m trying to debate wheter or not I should get the Make-Up Forever foundation or NARS.

    Friday plans: I wasn’t feeling too great about test results from school, so this is my mental day and I’ll hit the books tomorrow.

    Weekend plans: Honestly due to family stuff I haven’t gotten a chance to catch up on homework so I’ll be doing that and cleaning and catching up on TV.

    Excited for: The fact that I’m student teaching again and to get to know someone better.

  40. mandy

    Haul: From Venomous Villains I got Oh So Fair beauty powder, Bite of an Apple blush, Heartless l/s, She Who Dare mes, and My Dark Magic mes. I picked up Benefit’s Her Name Was Glowla makeup kit for my sister as one of her birthday presents. I also got drugstore eyeliner, Loreal Carbon Black Liner Intense, it’s easy on my wallet and I love it.

    Friday plans: the day is mostly over. I have a really bad cold but it’s my sister’s 16th birthday, and she is living with me right now, so I threw a party for her at my house.

    Last thing I watched: currently watching Say Yes to the Dress. I don’t know what it is about wedding shows but I love them!

  41. I know it’s not technically Friday any more, but I still want to play! 😀

    Haul: Mine is almost all VV, hehe. Truth & Light (that feeling is so weird and awesome), French Quarter, Heartless (OMG, a perfect red on me, what is this), Devilishly Stylish, and the Longwear Pro foundation and concealers…I’m NC15. Can I get paler? No?
    I think I’m going back tomorrow for Oh So Fair BP…I’m almost out of my Hello Kitty blush, so it’s time. Plus, I need something that doesn’t give me such a bright pink kick. I feel like it’ll do the job. I’m really sad, though, since our MAC was out of Bad Fairy within a few hours. Definitely prebuying next time. :( Hopefully they’ll have more in stock for our artist event in two weeks – apparently we get to dress up like Cruella or the Evil Queen and take pictures. That is so exciting, I love dress-up.

    I also got some Lush face scrub and solid shampoos in the mail…trying to rehab my hair after about six months of bleaching…I was a mess, for serious. Hopefully those work out.

    Friday plans: I did nothing but work on my grad school work all day, hooray! Did have dinner with some friends, but I had to go home almost immediately and finish some assignments. I had seven due this week! OMG! (But law school has to be worse.)

    Last thing I watched: 30 Rock last night. That show is a hoot.

    • You can always play, no matter if it isn’t Friday so I’m glad you did 😀

      I’m crossing my fingers for your hair!

      • Thanks. I’ve made a pact to myself – no more hairdye (professional or otherwise) for six months. We’ll see if I can keep it up…I had blonde highlights from about seventh grade until my junior year of college, eep. But that was nothing compared to bleaching my entire head. Never again, I says!

  42. SHARON

    My haul was this: Wrong Spell, Hot House, Wicked Ways, & Devilishly Stylish l/g
    Sinister, Dark Deed, & Heartless l/s
    Resort Life lip gelee
    Mean & Green and Formidable n/p ( I was too late for Bad Fairy, I may return these and get the Orly dupes)
    Oh So Fair beauty powder
    My Dark Magic & She Who Dares mes
    French Quarter greasepaint
    Vaingloious & Sweet Joy e/s
    Darkly My Dear blush (this one was unplanned, but looked great on me so how could I resist?)

    I am still relatively new to MAC (all Temptalia’s fault with the amazing reviews and gorgeous swatches that make me want it all) so I had to pick up some additional supplies. Here’s that list:
    Pro Longwear Foundation and Concealer in NW20 to replace my Dior Skin Nude (It left me shiny, ugh!)
    Prep+Prime Skin Refined Zone Treatment
    Clear Brow Finisher and Omega e/s for my brows
    Stripdown lip pencil
    Oh, I am also still upgrading my brushes so I picked up 191, 219, & 252

    I beleive I am going to need to take care of the Macy’s bill before my husband sees how much I spent at the MAC counter. I couldn’t even admit to my mom how much I actually bought when I was chatting with her today, my sisters and her already think I am ridiculous about makeup.

    Is it bad that I already booked my appointment for Tartan Tale and am lusting for the Cham Pale collection? Though with any luck these colletions will be far less damaging to my wallet, ha!

    The pics are so cute, my dog loves stuffies too!

    Last week I found possibly the last Chanels Pink Explosion blush, so I’m happy! Estee Lauder Wild Plum color gloss and Rasberry Pop gloss.
