  23. Silvia

    HI everyone,

    I got pearlglide undercurrent from MAC, bobbi brown cosmetic pot rouge in pink truffle and lipstick in italian rose. I also wanted MACs cosmo, but it was sold out. This weekend I need to go to the gym and will have a girls’ night on saturday :)

    Haul: Finally received my Guerlain holiday collection order. I couldn’t find it in my city, so I ordered it online. I love the quality, but was a little disappointed in the colour of the Rouge G lipstick (described as violet, but looks wine to me) and the eyeshadow quad (looks like shades of purples, but much more gray in person). I guess you take a chance when you order something before you see it in person.

    Also, I ordered some Renee Rouleau products for the first time (basic package for skin type 7). I just started using it, so we’ll see how my skin is after a few weeks. Right now it’s softer than it has been in a very long time.

    Friday plans: Going to a comedy show with my fiancé!

    Perfume you always reach for: My Queen by Alexander McQueen

  25. Patty

    Haul: currently deciding whether or not to take the plunge on $12 HG shu uemura lashes, along with a few other things, for the beauty.com F&F sale… ehhhhh!
    Friday plans: do housey things- laundry, sweep, vacuum, tidy up, etc.
    Perfume I always reach for: Used to be Ralph Lauren Romance (went through an entire 3.4 oz bottle!), but I’m currently loving STELLANUDE by Stella McCartney. Yum! Florally goodness. I might be throwing in Fiorucci though… it’s my “I feel expensive” scent, even though I got it for only $25. Plus it’s kind of heavier.

  26. Nicole

    Heck yes, Friday!! I think this is actually my haul from last week, but I didn’t share it. I got a couple goodies from the Guerlain holiday collection-the Or Imperial (so gorgeous!) and the Meteorites! I received a shipment of China Glaze holiday polishes. I’m currently rocking out “Frosty” on my nails, and it’s very frosty. Haha.

    I’m super excited for the weekend, because I just spent the week finishing up midterms and throwing together a research proposal…so I’m thinking a movie and glass/bottle of wine is in order tonight! :D

    Oh, I forgot…FedEx dude should be dropping off some MAC goodies to me this morning! Just some random stuff from the permanent collection. Yay!

    Tonight is Bonfire Night, and it’s raining, so we’re staying indoors and eating bacon baps and Pringles. If anyone round here has fireworks, we’ll watch them through the window :)

Didn’t haul much this week except a few RBL polishes from the sale, MAC SuperSlick eyeliner in “Devices & Desires” and received the Josie Maran Beauty In A Box from the Sephora FF sale. I’m not feeling a whole lotta love for the JM products, although they are always so well-reviewed that I’m going to take some time before making any final judgement. I can tell you for sure that I thought the GoGo Mascara sucked, lol. Plans tonight include Thai food and a movie with my Mr.: go-to fragrance these days is Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange rollerball. Have a great weekend…fingers are crossed for you on the scholarship contest!

    Well….working today and Saturday night and early Sunday morning…but we’re going to see Due Date tonight, which I hope is hilarious! My hauls this week were UD Jackpot set with my Drugstore Dollars from Beauty.com, Wrong Spell and Wicked Ways from MAC (which Wrong Spell looks really dark on me, I may return?), Sephora F&F I got Illamasqua Hermetic and the Sephora Flash Liner set with two additional Flash liners to get it over $50 for free shipping, and last night for Beauty.com’s F&F I got the Lorac Tye Dye For set and Lorac Matte Satin Blush in Exposed and a Tarte eyeliner sharpener….Wow, I really didn’t want to spend that much money this week…

  63. Yay! I’m so glad I made it to another one of these. I love reading what everyone’s gotten. :D

    Haul: 17 things from Lush (my baths are now completely vegan) and a single MAC lipliner. The latter is a thing that officially makes me feel old, because my mom told me (when I was about 12) that I wouldn’t need lipliner until I was much, much older. (I’m 23, so I guess that’s a lot older?) At least this is just for bright red lipstick!

    Friday plans: Doing some writing (since that is my job and stuff), then getting ready for a carnival with my husband. :D I’ve got to attend a birthday party and be the photographer for our area’s Hydrocephalus Walk this weekend, though.

    Friday Plans: Bar hopping with my friends!

    Perfume you always reach for: I am really in love with Kat Von D’s Saint Eau de Parfum. Every time I wear it, I get the best compliments from people. Also, it tends to be a man-magnet! lol!

I’ve hauled a ton this week, including stuff from Tartan Tale, Dior quints and Minauderie (sp) palette, some Guerlain holiday and other items, Accessorise cosmetics, etc. However, my husband has been in NJ all week and I asked him to pick up a couple of things for me: Too Faced Glamour Revolution and Lancome Mandarin Sky and he’s got them both! Yes! Neither are available in the UK, so I’m very pleased. :)

    I just bought the two MAC Kids Helping Kids bears, Girl About Town lipstick, Magenta pencil, Family Crest pigment and Semi-Precious eyeshadow. From Sephora I bought MUFE Rouge Artist Intense 47, the UD Grind/Oil Slick Eyeshadow set, the NARS Cheyenne duo (I’ve never used NARS shadow before, but 10 dollars plus 20% off from F&F seemed too good to pass up!). I also bought a Sephora brand lip pencil, eye pencil and nail polish to qualify for free shipping (I hate paying for shipping from the bottom of my heart).

    I spent my whole day doing stuff. I had a Psych quiz at 9:00am, a job interview at noon and then mall plans at 2:00 pm. After that, I met up with my family at 8:00pm, because it’s a Hindu religious holiday today!
