Free for Haul Friday

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:  theBalm Shady Lady, Vol.2, NARS All Night Lipgloss (I think that’s the name – it was $10 on Sephora), Jack Black Lip Balm (one can never have too many!)

Weekend plans:  I have a ton of reading to do for school, but hopefully will squeeze in some fun with the good weather we’ve been having.

Does your shampoo/conditioner match:  Yes!  I always have them match.  It feels so odd to use different ones to me.

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

This week’s Mellan photo…


Mellan is looking for a Valentine… any takers?

See the rest of the set!


Do you know how hard it is to find dog-wearable Valentine’s Day things? Harder than it should be!


Thankfully, Mellan is secure is masculinity that he will rock a pink scarf!


I think he likes his holiday bear more than his Valentine’s Day bear…


So, won’t someone be Mellan’s Valentine?

    Mellan makes me melt!!!

    Haul:
    Urban Decay Book of Shadows III
    Z-Palette in Black
    MAC Wonder Woman Collection: Wonder Woman Lipglass, Spitfire Lipstick, Valiant Quad, Pink Power MSF, Mighty Aphrodite Blush.
    239 Brush, Steamy Nail Laquer.

    Weekend Plans: Move to Miami!!!

    Does your Shampoo/Conditioner Match? Usually right now it doesnt.

    • Megan

      What a nice haul! I didn’t get anything from the MAC Wonder Woman collection. How do you like what you got?

  2. Haul: Just received my Shiseido eyelash curler. Love it! It fits my eyes better than Shu’s.

    Weekend plans: Going out with a friend and relaxing.

    Does your shampoo/conditioner match: Actually I don’t use conditioner, just hydrating masks, and they rarely match my shampoo!

    Another great haul this week, after getting some of the Mega Metal shadows and Flaunting It lip colour last week.

    I got Paparazz-she, Dandizette, Unflappable and Odalisque Mega Metals, Scan-delicious, So Vain and Temper Tantra Kissable Lip Colours, Gulabi lipstick, and Solar White, Cool Heat, Gulf Stream and Climate Blue eyeshadows.

    Wonder Woman isn’t out here in the UK yet, but someone at Selfridges put some of the items on the website anyway – probably hadn’t cleared it with the people on the MAC counter first. I took a chance and ordered Marquise d’, Spitfire, Athena’s Kiss and Wonder Woman, and they all arrived a couple of days later. I see the items were taken down again a few days later, so I’m guessing someone alerted them to the fact it shouldn’t be on there yet. I love them all – I’m a happy bunny :)

  4. Jayna

    Aww, Mellan!
    My haul was just a little bottle of Chanel Mat Lumiere. Don’t like it at all.

  5. Andrea

    Heeeee isssss soo sweet i have a kitty cat but im afraid she cant be his valentine .
    Melan looks sooooo cute , but i think he dont like the scar

  6. shuz4ever

    Haul – Nothing…i was very good this week

    Weekend plans – My husband gets back from a long biz trip so i’m looking forward to spending time with him + catching up with friends + figuring out what i’m wearing/doing on V’day…yay shopping.

    Mellan looks adorable…and with those handsome looks i doubt he has any dearth of valentines!

  7. Tawanna

    Awww! Mellan, I’ll be your valentine!!! :D

  8. Ani_BEE

    Haul: Eve Pearl Concealer Trio “A”, Tri-Fold Eyebrow Razor and The Eye Palette-Pretty N Pink (free with order). I’m really impressed with there eyeshadows. I wasn’t planing on buying them but I think there lovely and travel friendly. The Concealer Trio “A” I got because of the fair foundation shades. Unfortunately the lightest shade is still a little dark on me. >__< Stupid ice.

    Does your shampoo/conditioner match:
    No but I use 3 different shampoos during the week. lol I use Aveeno NOURISH+ REVITALIZE Shampoo, Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo and Ojon Ultra Hydrating Shampoo depending on the day of the week. I working through my tube of Pureology Conditioner, I forget the name of it but it's a thick conditioning mask. Once I've finished that I'll be using my Ojon Ultra Hydrating Conditioner and Ojon® Restorative Hair Treatment (double size tube of that).

    • Ani_BEE

      Apparently it don’t like the pained faces I made and remove the center text between the two…so:

      Cures my ultra fair skin tone. But at least I can use the wheel as concealer.

      Weekend plans: Helping my Mom out since she has an ankle brace. Stupid ice.

  9. Avatar of Lauren Lauren

    Haul: Marquid D’ and Mighty Aphrodite blush- I caved- The worst part, I skipped the Emancipation lipgloss bc of the ridiculous sized applicator. Low and Behold, I come home and my mom, unprovoked and unaware of my trip to MAC, tells me I have Brigitte Bardot lips. My ultimate goal. WTF MAC, WTF. Now I obviously have to buy the lipgloss.

    Weekend plans: Spending the weekend at the Westin hotel with my boyfriend in Toronto. Yay!

    Does your shampoo/conditioner match: Nope, I rotate pretty frequently. I keep my hair guessing.

    GREAT THING THIS WEEK- I’m one week into Weight Watchers, and I’ve lost 5 recorded pounds!

  10. Erica

    Haul : nada :(
    weekend plans: dinner tonight with some friends
    my shampoo and conditioner always match, I feel I get better results that way.
    I will be Mellan’s valentine. ♥ He looks so cute and lovey. Hopefully my doggie wont get jealous!

  11. Simone

    I wish we had a Sephora in Australia. I suppose the closest we have is Mecca Cosmetica.

    Haul: Illamasqua concealer and under eye concealer, MAC Syrup and Cosmo lipsticks for day wear, MAC Craving for evening. I bought Craving on your recommendation, Christine.

    Weekend plans: Study, a concert and picnic with friends on Saturday evening and Sunday with my boyfriend.

    Does your shampoo/conditioner match: Normally, but not at the moment. I am using an Aesop shampoo and a Kerastase conditioner.

  12. Ann

    Haul: MAC: Unflappable e/s
    Weekend plans: Gym, paperwork, movies at home.
    Does your shampoo/conditioner match: No

  13. Ann

    Your pet’s pictures are soooo cute

  14. gia

    OMG, he is so adorable! Who can resist Mellan?

  15. Avatar of Kristina Kalex

    Haul – Chanel Boy Rouge Coco Shine and Rose Merveille powder.

    Shampoo/Conditioner match – Always. I usually run out of shampoo first so I end up buying a travel size bottle to use with the rest of the conditioner.

  16. Daintynymph

    Oh Mellan, I’ll be your valentine! We can go for a walk in the woods, have a delicious steak dinner, and cuddle all night.

  17. amy

    MAC for WONDERWOMAN Lipglass in Emancipation and Blush in Might Aphrodite. Chanel Le Vernis Black Pearl.

  18. Erin T

    Interesting: I think it’s odd if you *do* match your shampoo and conditioner. Wouldn’t you want to use the best product in each category for your type of hair? And how likely is the same brand and line to have the best product? I use shampoo and conditioner from different brands for the same reason you might use NARS eyeshadow base and blush, Chanel mascara and Urban Decay liner in a look post on Mac eyeshadow: those products just work better!

  19. Awww, Mellan is such a charmer!

    I bought: Hello Kitty liquid nail art in Minty, Banana Cream, Purple Sprinkles and Blueberry. I also bought the Sephora by OPI polish ‘Mash Up’ and some lipstains!

    Weekend Plans: School work, ew!

    Do my shampoo and conditioner match? Yes, Redken All Soft!

  20. heidi

    Haul: carmex my lips have been out of control dry lately, toofaced romantic eye palette, I love it! And MAC blankety lipstick, I’m not sure I like it. I think I prefer high tea. What’s all the fuss about?
    Weekend plans: laundry, cleaning and work
    Shampoo?: it totally matches!

  21. marcela

    mellan is so sweet!
    haul: Too Faced shadow insurance, NYX pigments in Jade and Purple, LASplash glitter base and Gaudy glitter
    weekend plans: it’s gonna be a good one, my BIRTHDAY and celebrating a new job offer!
    shampoo: yup, they always match. currently Organix tea tree mint (deicious peppermint scent)

  22. Haul: I just bought $74 of makeup from All Cosmetics Wholesale online. Four UD shadows, TheBalm Jealous Jordana (could not find the palette, so I bought the single), TF Galaxy Glam Magenta Moon, POP Eye Cake in Mocha Eyes, and POP Eye Dust in Bronze.

    Weekend plans: write a short paper for American Literature, and attend a fancy dinner honoring my boyfriend’s dad (he’s a doctor).

    Does your shampoo/conditioner match?: Most of the time, no. I have curlyish hair that is oily. It requires an anti-dandruff shampoo and a conditioner that is not too heavy. Funny thing is, I owned the Renpure Organics Body & Shine shampoo and the matching conditioner, but when I moved out, I somehow lost the conditioner. I think it fell out of my bag when I was on the train. :( I guess the goddess of hair decided that I should not have matching shampoo and conditioner.

  23. I would love to be Mellan’s valentine! But don’t tell my cat Jazz. He’s the jealous type. Shhhhh…

  24. mellan is absolutely adorable!

  25. Avatar of Rae Rae

    Aww! Mellan is such a cutie ;)

    Haul: A couple 15-pan palettes are on their way in the mail (but nothing else, because I’m boring like that.)

    Weekend plans: Also a bunch of schoolwork, but no hope for squeezing in anything even vaguely fun >.< Oh, midterms.

    Does your shampoo/conditioner match: Yep! They don't *always* match, but… they usually do.

  26. Josey

    Your blog is a wonderful public service :) Keep up the amazing work, and I hope you have the time to fully enjoy your stash in between insightful, well-written blog posts!

  31. This week I have hauled MAC Golden Lariat, Tarte Liplusters in Peach and Light Pink, Nars Cactus Flower, and Nars Albatross!

  32. I really look forward to seeing swatches of the NARS lipgloss, I’ve had to convince myself to not buy it several times because I don’t know what it looks like!

    And I’ll definitely be Mellan’s valentine, my cats won’t like it, but he is absolutely adorable! Great pictures, Christine!

  33. Haul: Earlier this week I majorly spoiled myself by getting a Clarisonic MIA, Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow pencil in Midnight Cowboy, & MAC Macroviolet Fluidline. Today I’m checking out the WW collection, but don’t think I’ll pick up too much from it.

    Weekend Plans: I work Saturday, but not really sure otherwise.

    Does your shampoo/conditioner match?: Yep! If the option is there, why not? Also, I sometime use 2in1′s lol

  34. Denise

    Me!Me!Me! I’ll be Mellan’s valentine :) He’s so cute!

  35. anonymous

    Mellan looks so cute.

    Haul: I can feel myself getting weaker… (yay on your theBalm Shady Lady, Vol.2)

    Weekend plans: Cleaning/shopping

    Does your shampoo/conditioner match: usually. feels weird otherwise.

  36. Avatar of make up deer laura

    Weekend plans: I’m going to study (a little) and relax before my graduation (on monday!!)

  37. Haul: Not too many just Stila #33 One Step Complexion Brush and Hourglass Illume Creme-to-Powder Sunset Bronzer Duo.

    Weekend plans: Don’t have any as of the moment but I’m on a reading break/spring break.

    Does your shampoo/conditioner match: Not really. I don’t really mind using different ones.

  38. Kelli

    Urban Decay.com- Urban Decay Feminine Palette, Professional Size Primer Potion
    Allcosmeticswholesale.com- MAC Trip Palette- 5 Sultry Lips & Eyes

  39. Avatar of Sharron Sharron

    Haul: WnW 8-Pan Palette in Comfort Zone; WnW Color Icon Shadow Trios in Silent Treatment, I’m Getting Sunburned, I Got Good Jeans & Spoiled Brat; & PeaceKeeper nail polish in Paint Me Stunning.

    Weekend plans: Finish my Spring cleaning projects, drop off donations, bake V-Day goodies for my coworkers, and catch up on my favorite shows. If I receive my state tax refund, I’ll pick up a couple of items from the MAC Wonder Woman collection, then hit a couple of dollar stores for frankening supplies.

    Does your shampoo/conditioner match: Of course! :)

  40. Lisa

    Haul: Illamasqua Ore pigment, Jack Black lip balm (had to try it after your review!), Philosophy the Microdelivery Peel set, Stila Make Me Blush set

    Weekend plans: Some work to do, a party, and hanging out with the boy. I haven’t seen him all week :(

    Does your shampoo/conditioner match: Sometimes. I don’t really care either way.

  41. Liz Mc

    Haul: I went overboard this week with MAC Wonder Woman, the collection I thought I wasn’t interested in. I got all the colored Opulashs, both blushes, and the Marquise ‘D lipstick (which I’m contemplating getting backups of if I can find it). I LOVE all of it, garish packaging and all.

    Weekend plans: working on Saturday, visiting the in-laws on Sunday.

    Shampoo/conditioner: They never match, I’m constantly switching brands around to find ones that well and don’t cost a fortune. I also find that by switching them up I get less buildup on my hair. I tend to have 2 or 3 bottles of each going at any given time.

    Other: I’m completely sick of this weather and can’t wait for spring. I think my makeup haulage is getting more extreme because I’ve got such a bad case of cabin fever.

  42. ThriftStoreJunkie

    That is just too cute! Mellan looks like he should be a model like in print and/or the pet ads on tv.

  43. Haul: MAC Capricious and Plum Dandy lipsticks, Essie Geranium np and Good to go top coat

    Weekend plans: a friend’s birthday party is tonight, work on research for the rest of the weekend

    Does your shampoo/conditioner match: Yes.

  44. Tekoa

    I’ll be your Valentine Mellan! Who’s a good dog? Yes, its you.

    Haul: Not much, just the NARS Desparado nail polish.

    Weekend Plans: Go to the zoo with le Husband for a Valentines Day dinner and lecture on the mating behaviors of animals.

    Does your shampoo and conditioner match? I think so, they’re both from Lush anyway. Solid shampoo is the most mind boggling thing on earth.

    • Heather

      That totally made me legit LOL bc I had the same reaction to solid shampoo at first. I literally sat there slack-jawed for 5 minutes trying to wrap my brain around it! lol

  45. Ariel

    <3 Mellan.

    Haul: Chanel–Regard Perle Quad, Inimitable Mascara, Boy Rouge Coco Shine, Eyeshadow Brush #2…and I plan to go get a Nars lip gloss pencil this weekend.

    Weekend plans: early Valentine date on Saturday, wearing Chanel's new Boy lipstick of course.

    Does your shampoo/conditioner match: Yes, unless I'm doing a deep conditioning treatment instead of regular.

  46. I saw the scarf Twitpic but this one with the Teddy Bear is soooo much cuter!! I love him :))

    Haul: Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel, Benefit’s Stay Put set (it was like $10 at Sephora for a mini Erase Paste, Creaseless shadow cream, and Stay Don’t Stray primer), Physician’s Formula gel eyeliner trio for Brown Eyes, EcoTools blush brush, and finally bought a full-size UDPP!

    Weekend plans: I wish I could do something special for Valentine’s weekend, but my husband is still away on deployment ;( other than that–nothing! Lol. Church on Sunday though :)

    Does your shampoo/conditioner match: Yes, typically they do. Right now I’m using some new Aveeno duo thing :)

  47. Haul: Gosh Holographic varnish.

    Weekend plans: Food, sleep and journal reading. The joys of a student life!

    Shampoo/conditioner matching? Hell no – I love mix and matching each time I wash my hair. Of course, I do purchase a matched set.

  48. Haul: Too Faced Romantic Eye palette, Chanel Rouge Coco in Sari Doré, and a couple matte nail polishes from Sephora.

    Week-end plans: not sure yet!

    Thoughts of the moment: I just created a blog, and it implies a lot of work to have just one post per day, so I’m starting to realize how much time you must spend on Temptalia Christine!

  49. Avatar of Vanessa Vanessa V

    Haul- MAC Wonder Woman lipgloss, MAC Wonder Woman Emancipation lipgloss, WW Victorious and Army of Amazons Mascara and WW Mighty Aphrodite. I really wanted to get Pink Power but they were sold out :-(

    Weekend Plans- I’m babysitting my niece tonight. Gym and lesson planning.

    My shampoo and conditioner always match!

  50. Amanda

    I’ll be your Valentine Mellan! I’ll give you a nice belly-rub and maybe even a bone if you’re a good boy. :P

    I actually received a ton of stuff in the mail this week from Sephora:
    Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils 15 Year Anniversary Collection
    Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss – Temper
    FAIRYDROPS Scandal Queen Mascara
    Stila Make Me Blush Set
    Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner – Black Ink
    Illamasqua Nail Varnish – Fern
    Illamasqua Lipstick – Growl

    And at a local beauty store, I bought:
    Black Shatter OPI polish, Teenage Dream OPI polish, and another one from that collection
    CHI heat protectant spray
    TIGI Curlesque curling creme stuff

    AND My LUSH UK order from early January finally arrived with lots of Valentine’s goodies. :D

  51. Courtney

    Haul: MAC lippies in Wonder Woman (so cute!), Secret Identity, and Russian Red. Probably won’t keep Secret Identity.

    Weekend Plans: A whole lotta nothing! I’ve been so busy, that I’m looking forward to a weekend of writing in bed and playing video games.

    Shampoo/Conditioner: Mine almost never match. I buy them based on what my hair needs.

  52. Hilary♥

    Haul: Urban Decay Book Of Shadows Vol. III – FINALLY found it!!

    Weekend plans: Going shopping tomorrow with my besties and having a party for my mom’s birthday on Sunday. YAY!

    Does your shampoo/conditioner match: Absolutely yes. =)

    Aww Mellan is so sweet!! I LOVE those pics!

  53. Jami

    Awwww hes so sweet. And He’s such a good dog for taking all the pictures!!

    Haul:
    Mac Wonder woman Lipglass Emancipation, Lip Stick Marquise’D, Reflects Glitter Reflets pearl, Quad in Valiant
    Neutrogena Healthy Glow (not a dupe for Nars in my opinion)

    Weekend plans: Valentines day shopping, working, and going out to eat sunday :)

    Does your shampoo/conditioner match?: No Im using lush godiva and sauve something? sometimes (with godiva i dont feel the need to use conditioner all the time.

  54. Leslie

    Haul: The new NYX HD Foundation in Nude (crossing fingers it’s the right color for an NC25), NYX HD Primer, 3 NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams in Antwerp, Milan, and Stockholm, Benefit Confessions of a Concealaholic kit, Sephora Pro Concealer Airbrush #57, Sebastian Zero Gravity Hairspray, NYX Brow Pen in Universal Deep, and Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel in Granite.

    Weekend plans: Tonight I’m driving up to MD with my boy for a close friend’s birthday party. Saturday we’re attending the opening of an exhibition I designed the catalogue for (I’m a graphic designer). Sunday, I’m attempting to make Valentine’s Day dessert…and I can’t cook for crap! It should be interesting.

    Does your shampoo/conditioner match: Nah. I tend to use more shampoo than conditioner, so I’m always running out of conditioner. Then I’ll just pick up whatever I see when I’m at the drugstore or wherever.

    Also, I just want to share that after months of searching, I think I finally found my HG brow routine. I’ve got sparse, jet black brows and very oily skin, so I’ve had a HELL of a time figuring this out. But I think the final answer is MAC’s Brow Finisher to “prime”, Copperplate to fill in, Brun to darken any patchy areas, and Anastasia’s Tinted Brow Gel in Granite to add some texture back in. Mission accomplished…yay!!!

  55. Returned my Make Up Forever 12 Color Flash Palette (creased like crazy, even with UDPP and setting with powder) and got two tokidoki Fantastico lip stains ($10 CAD on sale at Sephora, I love them so far!) and Too Faced’s Liquif-Eye eye shadow transformer.

    Checked out the Wonder Woman collection at MAC yesterday. Because of Christine’s amazing reviews I already knew what I wanted to look at. Sadly nothing jumped out at me.

    Weekend plans: Maybe yoga, hang out with friends

    I try to buy shampoo and conditioner as a matching set but always use up the shampoo first. I like trying new products so I’ll end up buying a new shampoo of a different brand.

  56. Carrie Ann

    Mellan can be my Valentine. What a cutie pie.

    Haul: Lancome Mandarin Sky Blush Subtil Shimmer and Warm Lavande Color Design Minerale Quad, Too Faced Romantic Eye Palette, Stila Make Me Blush Set, Hello Kitty Apple Balm and Sephora by OPI nail colour in Break A Leg Warmer.

    Weekend plans: Not much. It may be a lazy weekend.

    Does your shampoo/conditioner match: Usually. I tend to use the shampoo & conditioner that go together or are at least from the same brand.

  57. Avatar of Heidi Heidi S.

    Technically, I don’t have my haul just yet, but I did make an order off of Sephora.com last night for their mineral makeup that is on sale (I’ve wanted to try it for a while), and for the Sephora Color Play II set, and Japanese bath salts from Truerenu.com.

  58. Avatar of Gina Gina

    Haul: I’ve been eyeballing the Urban Decay Fun palette, as well as the new Viva Glam Gaga lipstick!

    Weekend plans: Studying, work and some time with the boyfriend.

    Does your shampoo/conditioner match: Mine always match too! I’m using Aussie Moist at the moment.

  59. Madelynn

    <3!

    Haul:
    3 pairs of lashes
    CG clean foundation in tawny.
    Rimmel trio in Orion (for brows!)

  60. NeenaJ

    Who wouldn’t want Mellan for a Valentine?

    Haul: MAC Lip Mix in Crimson & brush cleaner.

    Weekend: Hoping to get outside if it warms up like they say it’s going to. And, I need to play with my new iPhone so I don’t look like such a dork trying to use it!

    Shampoo/Conditioner: Mostly, no. I do have one matching set but mostly it’s random bottles of stuff from TJ Maxx and my Moroccanoil Conditioner.

  61. Rosanna

    Haul: NARS Eyeshadow Duo “Star Sailor.” I wanna go back and get either NARS push eyeliner or the Isolde duo……

    Weekend Plans: A screening of the best films that was at the Ontario Internation Animation Festival @ my School

    Does your Shampoo/Conditioner Match? Yes, sort of, they’re the same company. But I hardly use Conditioner because my shampoo is 2 in 1, and my hair is very healthy without conditioner, so I save time :P

    • Heather

      I love the Isolde duo! It’s been on my list to buy for forever :(

      • Rosanna

        lol, what’s stopping you from buying it?
        I chose the push eyeliner over the duo today because I’ve got too many eyeshadows already especially from NARS!

  62. Wendy R.

    I found a CCO is south florida so I went a little crazy lol. From MAC : Birds & Berries e/s Bough Grey e/s , Dames Desire e/s , Night manoevres e/s , Fold and tuck l/g , Queen bee l/g gold rebel l/g , fierce & fabulous l/g and Party red lipstick from clinique! Also mighty aphrodite blush!

    Weekend plans : study and to relax tonight!

    Usually they do match but not all the time.

  63. Kat

    Aww, Mellan can for sure be my Valentine :) I’m sure there will be tons of competition though!

    Haul: Neutrogena Makeup Removing Wipes,
    Seche Vite fast dry topcoat – it was $3 for a mini bottle, so I couldn’t resist,
    a mini bottle of OPI Nail Envy to try out because it’s so expensive normally;
    L’Oreal Studio Secret Magic Perfecting Base,
    Kiss My Face Peaches and Creme 4% – my first night creme!
    Marcelle Hydra-C ComplexE Eye Contour Gel-Cream
    The Body Shop Elderflower de-puffing eye gel
    Quite the skincare haul :)

    Weekend plans: I have a midterm to study for, so I’ll be doing tons of reading and studying, and I also want to finish up my book. Hopefully I’ll be able to meet up with a girlfriend for some much needed fun!

    Does your shampoo/conditioner match: Nope. I tend to check makeupalley for reviews and then I go pick up the products that are rated the highest. If they match, then so be it, but if they don’t, I don’t really care.

  64. Jenee

    Haul: MAC Wonder Woman Collection: Athena’s Kiss and Secret Identity lipglass and Golden Lariat MSF.

    Weekend Plans: Spend it with my Valentine :-)

    Does your Shampoo/Conditioner Match? I used to do that, but know I like mixing it up to see what results I get! Sometimes I’ll even use two different types of shampoo

  65. Heather

    Haul: Let’s see, after last week’s massive haul I swore I would stop, but nope! I got NARS Sheer Glow foundation w/ foundation brush (OMG to Christine and others on here who recommended it; I owe you all my firstborn! It is close to HG status for me, I think!, more of my Sephora Instant Moisturizer, brush cleaner, Sephora Vanilla cupcake dry body oil… oh and a ridiculously cute pair of Jessica Simpson aviator-type sunglasses! I am sooo looking forward to summer already!

    Weekend plans: Up North snowmobiling and trying to work on this crazy paper for school! :/
    Does your shampoo/conditioner match: Nope, I use Pantene Pro-V Shampoo and Ouidad leave-in conditioner because my hair is a thick, wavy, tangly mess (I’m a weird mix of ethnicities and it shows up in my weird hair texture and weird skin undertones lol)

  66. Svetlana

    Haul: MAC Peacocky just came out in Denmark the other day so I purchased 2 kissable lipcolours in En-Chantee and Flaunting it.

    Weekend plans: Clubbing with my girls tomorrow and Sunday going to the movies with the bf

    My shampoo and conditioner usually don’t match!

  67. TonTeezy

    Haul: NYX from Hautelook. I’m expecting delivery today. I got their lip set in red, the smokey collection, and base & brush set.

    Weekend Plans: To start the weekend, I am having dinner with friends tonight. The rest is pretty much up in the air.

    Does your Shampoo/Conditioner Match: Yes

    About my pet. My pet Pom Mylo is the fliest because he’s well trained. He doesn’t bark much. And he knows a few tricks. Right now he is learning how to hide his eyes. **Pics have been posted @ Temptalia Pets flickr group**
