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: Ouidad PlayCurl Volumizing Mousse or something rather… my Mom LOVES this stuff, but she refuses to buy it – so I got her a few bottles for her birthday!

Friday plans: School work!  That’s what happens when you opt for Saturday classes!

Strange fact about you:  I’m a very visual person; it’s easier for me to understand what people write than to say… a long lecture without some sort of presentation!

Keep adding your pet photos to the Temptalia Pets flickr group! :)

This week’s Mellan photo…


Mellan is so funny – I gave him all his holiday toys, and then he just laid on them.


I tried to coax him into play, but he wasn’t having it!


Gotta love Mellan!!

    I ALWAYS enjoy your Mellan pictures =D Make my day, why don’t you?

  2. Lauren

    Haul: Nars Primer, no spf, Nars Laguna, Caudalie Face Wash. The Nars primer is exciting because it’s water based, no silicones and finally makes my Nars Sheer Glow work properly. Nars Sheer Glow used to just sit on top of my skin like a strange make up mask. It would slide off my face by 3pm. Now, it locks in, looks like skin and stays all day! Thank God I didn’t waste $42. It’s too bad I had to throw away another $40 on the primer. Gah.
    Friday Plans: HOT Shower! Hot water heater has been broken since Tuesday:( ICE COLD BATHS.
    Strange Fact About Me: Everything I own in the world is packed into a 12 by 12 bedroom. Everything on the shelves/in boxes is alphabetized or colour coded, including the clothes/shoes in my closet. I don’t think I’m OCD because I won’t have a panic attack if the room gets messy, I’ll just tidy up.

    Perhaps Mellan realises it’s not Christmas for a little while yet? lol

    Just a small haul this week, after the excesses of A Tartan Tale last week lol.

    I’ve got 3 things from Boots No7 Christmas “Mirrorball” makeup collection – Stay Perfect Eyeliners in Bohemian (a beautiful dark purple) and Sea (which is a dark blue) plus their Mirrorball Glitter Mascara, which is silver glitter which is applied to either bare lashes or over normal mascara, with a proper mascara-type applicator.

    In the post today, I received MAC Sakura (WN) pigment, which is labelled as ‘sample’ and I believe is the working name for Jardinaires, and Too Faced’s Enchanted Glamourland Palette.

    It’s extremely windy out, so today I’m staying in and trying to get some housework done.

    I can’t think of any ‘strange’ facts about myself, except maybe that I’m shorter than both my 16 year old and 12 year old children (and don’t they like to rub it in!)

  4. Lauryn

    Haul: I actually broke down and purchased 3 SUGARPILL Chromalust loose eyeshadows. I got Magpie, Weekender & Stella. This is a big deal since I only use MAC.

    Friday plans: Right now, get thru the day. its 0936 a,d 3pm can’t get here fast enough, which is when my day is done. Then I’m going home and enjoying some Nyquil.. I hate being sick!

    Strange fact about you: People usually laugh or have lots of questions when they find out that I work in professional wrestling. No, i’m not a wrestler, I’m actually a ringside photographer. its alot of fun.

  5. Kalex

    Haul – NARS “Cheyenne” eyeshadow duo, Dior Creme Gel Foundation, UD Professional Size Primer, Butter London polishes “Chimney Sweep” and “All Hail the Queen.”

    Friday Plans – Hanging out the husband and kids.

  6. Aw, Mellan looks so cute! I would love to find him under my tree this year! haha

    Haul: Last week was a big haul for me. All I got this week was MAC’s lip erase (pale) because they’re still offering PRO products on their site. I like it, but it’s not long wearing by any means. However, it makes Revlon’s Soft Nude look gorgeous — which was a color I absolutely did not like before.

    Friday plans: Shopping around for Christmas!

    Strange fact: I was the first woman at my hospital to have an invasive surgery (gall bladder removal) while 6 months pregnant!

  7. The Anna Sui Mini Rouge lip gloss I ordered long ago finally arrived. Much smaller and smelling much stronger of roses than I had expected…
    Friday plans: none
    strange fact: I would go to the library everyday if I could. taking out library books is like a compulsion.

  8. K7P*

    Friday plans: I’m driving down to the Outer Banks (in North Carolina) with my fiance. We’re running a half-marathon on Sunday. It’s his eighth, and my first!!!
    Strange fact: I am an editing whiz. I feel a compulsion to correct spelling, grammar, and (depending on the type of media) AP Style whenever I see an error.

  14. Giedre

    Haul: A couple of eyeshadows from Catrice (European Drugstore Brand) which are really well pigmented and show up in a lot of beautiful colors.

    Plans: Tomorrow I’ll my sister and me are going to cook roasted canard with red cabbage and potatoes. *starts to drool*

    Strange fact about me: I hate cleaning the floor using a mop. I always creep on my knees only using a cloth. Maybe I missed an essential part of evolution…

  15. Haul: 4 lipsticks by Maybelline: Nude Brown, Coral Chic, Cool Watermelon and Petal. They don’t last as long as other lipsticks but they are really creamy!

    Friday plans: work work work!

    Strange fact about you: I like to finish things and tasks…..like finish a makeup product, or a lotion, or finish my work, finish anything! And this is bad ’cause everytime I come home with a lot of things undone, I get a little pissed!

    Mellan in soooooo cute! My dog just destroys any toy he has!

  16. Rita

    A Tartan Tale week for me. I didn’t go crazy even though I visited the Counter a couple of times and had a micro makeover, too. Here is what I got:
    Cut a Paper, Courting Lilac, and The Faerie Glen l/s
    My Highland Honey Blush
    Black Line Pearlglide (I already had Undercurrent, of couse)
    Semi-Precious e/s
    Later, Moonlight Night, and the 5 Smokey pigments
    And Sir Teddy!
    From Mac I also got Magenta lip liner this week.
    And finally, I received my Balmbini – Babies of theBalm Face Palette order! I have not tried out any of their makeup products before (except TimeBalm), but I had to get some, since I love pugs!

  17. AnGeLwInGz

    Haul: Philosophy Pumpkin Spice Muffin, Have a Cherry Christmas, Red Velvet Cake, and Creme Brulee
    Friday Plans: Sephora for no valid reason whatsoever. I got too much stuff from the last 20% off sale but this week’s V.I.B. coupon is so pretty I just have to use it on something!
    Strange fact: I am quite a hoarder at home but at work I throw away everything, even things that I’m not supposed to. (Thank goodness for computerized medical records at the hospital!)

  18. Regina

    Mellan looks so adorable!

    Haul: MAC 212 and 214.
    Friday plans: Homework & laundry
    Strange fact about me: My betta fish hates me without apparent reason…

    I have Sephora’s smudge brush which is the “same” as Mac’s 214. When I tested them side by side the 214 does a smoother and more uniform/blended smudging, it’s a bit softer and has a bit thinner edge. Compared to the 219 the 214 keeps the smudging less smoky, cleaner and with a little more definition. I’m not sure if I should keep it.
    Is a smudging brush really necessary in a basics collection?

  19. Nadia

    Beauty Haul: I received the Nars Blush in Madly, which I recently ordered from Sephora.com.
    Saturday Plants: Go to my friend’s daughter’s Quinceañera, which is a “Sweet Fifteen” party.

    Haul- Victoria’s Secret makeup primer, MAC eyeshadows in Pink Venus and Trax, Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliners Jackpot set

    Friday plans- Working then going home to relax in my PJs…cozy but not very exciting

    Strange Fact- I’m into everything from the 1960′s and 1970′s: Fashion, makeup, movies, music, tv shows, you name it. But perhaps the strangest thing is I have all these one hit wonder compilations of songs from that era on CD…songs i’m embarrassed to admit I like and songs most people from my age group (i’m 28) probably may have never heard of.

  25. Ani_BEE

    Haul: IMATS Toronto (will be going next year ^_^). Didn’t get everything on my list since some stuff was sold out by the time I got there (It’s hard to bet there by public transit. >_< the location is so not popular)

    NAKED cosmetics: Show Special~ makeup case, 6 stack of mica pigments,1 foundation, 1 gloss and 1 primer. Since their foundation didn't work for my skin shade I got instead 2 brushes and I more of each of the gloss and primer. Kit was at 20% of the original cost of their products. I'll list stack later as for 3 of them are not on the retail site.

    Friday plans: Going through my IMATS hall and storing/photographing them. ;)

    Strange fact about you: B-Days on the 25th of December. I will also draw you a map over giving verbal directions.

    Friday plans: Driving up to Orlando to see my boyfriend. Epcot Food & Wine Festival tomorrow to celebrate having finished my thesis project!
    Strange fact: I’m a super light sleeper so I can’t sleep without some sort of soothing white noise in the background. If it gets too quiet, even THAT wakes me up!

  30. Samantha

    Haul : Monday night I kicked my cat’s food bowl by mistake and broke it so I had to buy a new one. LOL and Mac’s thrillseekers pigment set (loves it).

    Haul: This week I ordered Benefit’s Her Name Was Glowla palette, some silver shampoo and amazing over-the-knee leather boots from Topshop! I think I’m not allowed to do anymore shopping this month..

    Friday plans: Just chilling out with my dog.. How exciting! (Your dog is super cute Christine!)

    Strange fact about you: When I get really nervous I talk A LOT! I just hate those awkward silences and apparently much rather seem like an idiot who just can’t seem to stop blabbering on..

    • Yumi

      I ordered some over the knee boots myself from Spring that were on sale…unfortunately they are ugly and bunch at the ankles, so I’m going to have to return them. Good to hear someone had better luck than me!

  34. My fur-kid does the same thing, just likes to cuddle with toys. However, most of her toys are ROCKS that she brings in from the yard! =P

    Latest Haul:
    Urban Decay’s Apocalyptic Nail Kit & Urban Decay’s Summer of Love Nail Kit
    Loving them so far!

  35. Haul: Rock & Republic products from their website and Hautelook (both 50% off). A few MAC Tartan Tale items.

    Strange fact: Hmm…I’ll have to come back to this

  36. Paige

    Haul: Too Faced Enchanted Glamourland, YSL Faux Cils in black noir, Dior DiorShow Maximizer (I’m giving this a try since the new formula of the Shiseido mascara base is no longer on the same standard as the original mascara base. If it ain’t broke, why fix it?), and Shu Uemura rouge pk347 (rose pink color).

    Friday plans: Homework for my stats theory class and TA work. No fun plans this weak. :(

    Strange fact about me: I don’t care about getting free stuffs (and try it) if I have no interest in the products. I have tons of cosmetics samples from Sephora, Clinique, Chanel, Shu, etc. that more often than not, I just throw them in a box together and give them away to my friends later.

    Mellan always seems to have this adorable, meek and shy expression, doesn’t he?

    • Jennifer S.

      I read an article once in Vanity Fair about how NY Socialite Brooke Astor always wore Oil of Olay on her hands at night. I started using my giveaway cream samples on my hands because I figured it did not really matter the formula type as long as it was moisturizing. That way I use them up and my hands really do look and feel better. Maybe you could try that to use them up, just keep them in your night stand like I do!

    • Yumi

      Come to think of it, I never use my samples either, lol.

  37. Rosanna

    I’m on a NARS and candles kick right now! I want to get more….but must restrain myself (NARS Taos Blush, Leaves Candle…XD).

    NARS Eyeshadow Duo “Jolie Poupee”
    NARS Eyeshadow Duo “Kalahari”

    Bath &Body Works Candle (14oz) “Creamy Pumpkin”
    Bath &Body Works Candle (14oz) “Cinnamon & Clove Buds”

    Friday Plans: I’m staying at school all day (1-7:30pm) for classes X_X

    Strange fact about me: I’m shorter than my younger sister and younger brother

    • I just received both of those NARS duos in MUA swaps. Interesting. We’re on the same wavelength. :)

      • Rosanna

        Haha, really? I love the Kalahari duo – a much needed edition to my small collection of neutrals. Jolie Poupee is beautiful too but I’m not a fan of purples on myself even though my friends say I look really good in them.

  38. Haul: Glamour Doll Eyes, both Halloween 2010 sets, Eternal Bonds set, Dirty Jeans and Boyfriend Sweater as samples

    Friday plans: watching ‘Sweeney Todd’ on DVD

    Strange fact about you: I hate to sunbathe. Under no circumstances will I lie down somewhere to get a tan, not by the pool, not at the beach, not in the backyard. Never.

  39. Purba_s

    Haul…nothing really. oh yes…the new Toki Doki palette. I am such a sucker for cute packaging. But the color payoff on the eyeshadows are amazing…so it is a good buy

    Friday Plans…as usual, get out of work early to beat crazy traffic

    Strange fact about me?….I am OCD about TP roll over than roll under…so yes…i change the roll to over everywhere i go. I have even attempted (with not much luck though) to do that in Public restroom…yeech

  40. Jennifer S.

    Mellan really is too stinking cute. I have never told you this but I have a Chocolate Lab named, “Cadbury”. The idea of dressing up my dog for Halloween like you do is a hoot. I told my husband how you dress up Mellan and he thought perhaps next year for our Cadbury.
    Had a large haul today, you encouraged me with you nail polish post. I went and bought ten new bottles for this fall. Most are China Glaze, which I have never owned before and one is by Orly. I figured if you owned as many CG as you did the formula must be pretty decent. Ha!
    I also bought MAC Pink Swoon Blush, Chai and UnderAge lipglasses, and Embark, Folie and Espresso eyeshadows.
    I think I am finished for the weekend. ;]

  41. Evelyn

    Oh he knows he takes an adorable photograph, that’s why he laid on them! lol Who can resist soft toys and puppy dog eyes??

  42. Carrie Ann

  44. leesie

    Haul: A couple Pure Ice polishes, an Orly polish, some rhinestones for nail art…and my Zoya polishes (Ivanka, Crystal, Julieanne, and Shawn) arrived. Today, I’ll probably stop by Bath and Body Works and pick up a body spray and hand cream (or candle?) in Secret Wonderland. I have a coupon that needs using.
    Plans: Today’s my 21st birthday, so I’m going out with friends!
    Strange fact: I don’t consider this strange, but I recognize it’s sort of unusual among women, let alone women who enjoy makeup as much as I do, but I am a huge wrestling fan.

  45. Haul: I picked up some of the new holiday goodies E.L.F. put out at Target. I normally don’t go for E.L.F. but I heard they’ve changed up their formula so a I grabbed a few pieces to try.

    Friday plans: I have no idea yet. I think my bottle of win might be part of what ever it is I do. LOL

    Strange fact about you: I will buy 2 or 3 of the same sticker so I can use one but save the rest for my collection.

  46. From ACW.com: SMH eyshadows (Black Forest, Glitz, Wine Not, Domanitrix, Walking After Midnight, Charisma), POP pigments in Olive and Peach

  47. Vijaya

    No beauty haul, but…

    I just got a job at Lush! Yay, me!

    • leesie

      Congratulations! Now you’ll get paid to be around delicious-smelling products! Jealouuus.

    • Laura

      I used to work there! Most of my wages (I worked part-time) went straight back to the company as I went a bit crazy and bought tons of stuff all the time from there! The funniest thing was going home or uni after work when my friends could tell by the smell that I’d been at work.

  48. Yumi

    Haul: Finally popped in to buy from A Tartan Tale! Damage consisted of Cut a Caper, The Faerie Glen, Her Blooming Cheek and Gone Romancin’. I really wanted Courting Lilac but it just wasn’t flattering on me. :(
    Friday plans: Not sure yet, either the movies, mall, or studying like I should be hehe.
