    MAC Wonder Woman launched here yesterday, and I got Mighty Aphrodite, Athena’s Kiss, and Russian Red. 😀

    This weekend is going to be spent on working on school assignments, alas. :(

  2. natalia

    Haul: nada.

    Weekend plans: celebrating my best friends birthday!

    Last beauty product you finished: Clinique Moisture Surge moisturizer. I’ve repurchased this multiple times but am looking to try something new, I’m thinking either Kiehls or Origins next.

  3. Rosie

    I had a good week for the most part I have lost 10 lbs in five weeks so I’m excited about that and treated myself to some goodies. However, I am very clumsy and tripped on the gas pump hose trying to climb over it and got a contusion of the knee so stayed home from work yesterday and am walking around with a bandage and a knee that won’t fully bend and hurts and is bruised up. But as for the goodies I got Wet ‘n’ Wild Color Icon trios in I Dream of Greenie, I’m Feeling Retro, and Silent Treatment. I also got the Color Icon Eyeshadow collection in Blue Had Me at Hello because that turquoisey blue took my breath away, and Comfort Zone since it seems to be the one people love the most on Youtube.

    Have a great weekend Christine! Thanks for the awesome reviews and looks all the time! And I like Shaun’s slipper manipulation!

    • Shilpa

      Congrats on the weight loss! That’s awesome!

    • leesie

      Congratulations! I’ve spent time losing/trying to lose weight in the past (My current goal is to lose 20 pounds by April 15, actually–can’t wait for it to get warm enough to go on daily walks), and I know how hard it can be. I reward myself with makeup too!

  4. Rosie

    OOO and I got the China Glaze Crackle polishes in the gray and purple (all that was left at the store).

  5. Mariella

    Haul: NYX Iced Mocha eye shadow; Lise Watier Waterproof Eyeliner in Bleu Noir (amazing colour and product); Bourjois Bronzer (I’m still so on the fence about bronzers)
    Weekend Plans: Hubby’s away with his brothers on a golfing weekend so I’ve got the weekend to myself – brunch with my son, working out (without feeling rushed), a trip to Sephora
    Last Beauty Product Finished: Soap and Glory body lotion

  6. Dawn

    A fun (and expensive) haul this week!

    Earlier in the week, I bought Too Faced Sparkler Glamour Gloss in Sapphire Spark and Violet Vapor, and MAC Big T eyeshadow on ebay. Then I got MeMeMe’s “blush me!” in rouge from Superdrug.

    Several MAC collections arrived in the UK simultaneously this week, and my black box arrived yesterday with: Wonder Woman Emancipation lipglass, a 239 brush and Desert Rose blush pro pan refill(been wanting these for ages but the blush has been out of stock for what seems like forever) Blushcreme in Ladyblush(as the ‘new’ Ladyblush isn’t really the same colour), 3 lipsticks from the Going Going Gone section – 3-D, Going Dutch and Lame, the new Sheen Supreme lipsticks in Impressive and Ultra Darling, and from the Jeanius collection I got Riveting Rose lipstick, Indigo Pink lipglass and Pink Cult blush.

    Your lip swatches helped me decide which of the Sheen Supremes to get, and I’m very pleased with my choices. I’m glad Wonder Woman was out early at Selfridges here, otherwise the rest of my WW purchases would have been in this haul, and the total bill would have been sky high. It doesn’t look quite so bad in a couple of smaller batches, though, for some reason. I just hope we will have a bit of a breathing space before the next collection(s) are launched. I hate that they launch so many at the same time.

  7. Ana G.

    Haul: Centre Stage and Noir Plum eyeshadows, from Peacocky collection.

    Weekend plans: Long weekend for me. Off to the beach house for four days, with my husband and my son.

    Last Beauty Product I finished: Mac’s Girl’s Delight Dazzleglass

  10. Natalie

    Haul: Half of the MAC Sheen Supremes, MAC Pink Cult, (once again, Christine, you killed it with the reviews!!) & MAC #32 lashes, and Qtica lip balm.

    Weekend plans: Dinner, movies, and babysitting my adorable 2-year-old twin nephews, who would totally adore the “go-dee” Mellan haha (they can’t say doggie yet, so it comes out as go-dee).

    Last beauty product you finished: L’Oreal Skin Expertise Collagen Moisture Filler moisturizer…I stole it from my mom to fix my dry skin and refused to give it back!

  11. Kayvid

    I love, love, LOVE Mellan. He is one good looking pup. Is he well behaved too?

    • He has his quirks/flaws, but overall, he’s a good dog. He has SUPEREXCITEDTOSEEYOU greeting syndrome, and while he won’t jump on you, he will wiggle all over you and do what we call the Mellan hop (which is him just hopping about an inch up). He is also OBSESSED with the pool, to the point where he will whine and moan if he’s not allowed in it.

    Weekend plans: Not much -cleaning hopefully, since my place is a mess

    Last beauty product you finished: MAC’s mineralize compact foundation. I love it, but it doesn’t last long if you use it every day, so I alternate between that and the MAC ProLongwear.

    Weekend plans: Going out Friday Night, State Fair Saturday, Relax on Sunday
    Last beauty product you finished: Ponds Cold Cream Moisturizer (The only thing I put on my face every single day since I was 16 years old)

    I don’t know why I hesitate to buy Chanel products. I spend almost as much buying Nars, Mac, or YSL. I love Insolente…but just an FYI..if you want a similar color that is slightly bolder and more opaque…try Mac’s Impassioned. I couldn’t believe how similar they were. Insolente is slighly more sheer and you can build up the color. Impassioned is super bold and I get a lot of comments when I wear it out. Either one should satisfy your bold lip fix if you’ve been on the hunt for something that pops.

  32. Ana

    Haul: MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Impressive & MAC Blush in Pink Cult (Jeanius)

    Christine I was curious if you use the Kate Somerville as your regular cleanser. I just bought the gentle cleanser and the exfoliant. Do you think there worth it? The exfoliant it pretty intense

    • I love ExfoliKate! I definitely think it’s worth it. I also love the Gentle Cleanser – I tended to use it as my morning cleanser, since I don’t need a deep clean or something to remove makeup. I reviewed both products here on the blog.

    This week I got two more items from WW,spitfire and pink power. I already got the rest of the collection when it launched except for marquise d which was sold out. Not really impressed with pink power on my skin tone but I do not have any msf’s so i thought it was a deal to get both. also the middle part of the pink power is very close to my skin tone so that would save me not buying a msfn. I also started collecting the peacocky shadows. Did not want to get any until I was done with the WW.however i am Still on the fence about either getting Center stage or unflabble? Some peoples reviews on unflabble are not really good,as they say it is not piggmented. any input!

    I know its not friday anymore but I wanted to post this because I forgot to post yesterday. I just received a mac order in the mail yesterday! I was so excited… and thanks to the swatches on I was able to order with confidence. I can only order online because I don’t have any stores where I am located.

    I purchased:
    Freckletone lipstick
    C-Thru Lipglass
    Melba Blush
    Refined Golden Bronzer
    Ricepaper Eyeshadow
    Hush Cream Color Base
    Pearl Cream Color Base

    I absolutely love everything! I am soooo happy! I bought my first nude lipstick with this order and “Freckletone” is def the perfect nude for me. I only wanted to buy one and I am soooooooooooooooo happy because it is the only one I could possibly want. Perfect peachy nude that mutes out my extremely pigmented lips without looking weird. Thanks to you Christine I was able to make the perfect decision without even trying on the lipstick or seeing it in person!
