    Mine is really from last week and this week….

  17. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Elizabeth Lizzi

    Haul: UD Naked, MUFE eye pencils in 13L & 19L, Kat Von D bronzer (for contouring), I also went into Nordstroms and did pre-order four items of the Quite Cute collection coming up. Don’t know if that counts now or when my credit card gets charged for it in 2 weeks. Lol! I ordered Playing Koi, Giggly, Ice Cream Cake and Mischievous Mint. I painted my nails with MM and I’ve gotten SOOO many compliments on it.

    Weekend Plans: gotta clean up my place, fishing with best guy friend, yoga class

    Last foundation: the UD mineral one that is $29, I forget the name. I’m trying to use it up before I buy my MAC summer colors for my face.

    • Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Elizabeth Lizzi

      I forgot to add that I got Flowerbomb and MAC Sunbasque. Whoops!

    • Adrienne

      good to hear I’m dying to see MM

      • Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Elizabeth Lizzi

        It’s gorgeous, very unique color. I’ve never seen an OPI, China Glaze, etc that comes anywhere close. I have only bought 4 MAC polishes in the past two years because their formula, and the infamous brush, aren’t the best. But I feel that they’ve improved it, along with raising the price from $13 to $14.50 in 2 years.

        BTW, their Peppermint Patti polish came to mind when I was testing MM. They are not similar in color at all. PP is very green while MM is a more blue based.

  18. Mainly bought clothes, gonna do a big make-up haul next week!!!
    XOXO

  19. mini

    awww what an adorable puppy you have :)

  20. Adrienne

    So broke from last week lol. I don’t normally return things so don’t think I’m crazy but… I returned my eye makeup remover from the bodyshop I guess after 2 years of use it stops working and I didn’t want to go thru a whole other bottle. I got macs cleanse off oil it works so well but it gets in my contacts and I end up spending 30 min flushing my eyes out so idk.
    I also returned Nars orgasm blush that I only used twicesince I got MA from wonderwoman and felt they were similar and orgasm was just way too over the top for me. I got Sex appeal instead and am in love with that.

    I’ve also convinced myself that I despise my too faced naked pallete enough to return it. Seriously I can’t get a single look out of it. All the colors just washout together. Maybe it’s just me cus it wildly popular. Maybe a review can be done :) I’m either going to get Nars Laguna again since mine is down to crumbles or the UD setting spray.

    I feel sorta bad returning things but I figure they make way more money than me and I’m really just exchanging.

    I also got studio sculpt concelear at Mac cus I didnt have a concealer. Only one that’s meant for undereyes

    • Adrienne

      Foundation: I wear LM tinted with smashbox hd in f1 using a sponge it’s working better than a brush. with a lil Nars in Fiji dusted on top. Love it. I did get a MAC sample of a foundation that I really like but I do t know what it is! All that is written is Select nc20 does anyone know what that is? Thanks!

    • snm

      most brands do not accept returns in my country most of the time,it is pretty annoying.however tomorrow I am returning my new root-cream color base to mac.I hit the pan on the previous one,and got a newie,but it is hard as a rock! weird,must be a manufacturing problem

  21. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Dawn Dawn

    I actually managed to have a little time to go shopping after my dance class this week! I got:

    From House Of Fraser I got Urban Decay goodies – 24/7 Glide-on Pencil Shadows in Morphine and Delinquent, and Urbanglow Cream Highlight in Moonshine. I used my £20 in House Of Fraser vouchers towards this :)

    From Superdrug I got MeMeMe “Blush Me!” blushes, which are packaged suspiciously like Benefit blushes, in Coral and Pink, and the newest Sleek eyeshadow palette – Paraguaya.

    In Boots I got No7 nail polishes in Foxglove and Hot Pink, and their new No7 Exquisite Curl Mascara. I got £5 off with a voucher, and also got a GWP with creams, mascara, lipstick and eyeshadow in. From the Clinique counter I got the Redness Solutions Daily Protective Base and the High Impact Curling Mascara (which is incredibly difficult to remove with my eye makeup remover – think I need something stronger). I got a GWP with this, too, containing face wash, moisturisers, a Superbalm Moisturising Gloss, a mini mascara and a little eyeshadow quad.

    All in all, a successful shopping trip :)

    I am very much looking forward to this weekend, as Saturday night I am going to a show – my first evening out in well over a year! I just need to find something to wear now, and can’t find my decent shoes anywhere

  22. Haul: Went to Sephora and bought quite a few things from Too Faced, NARS, Stila, and Sephora. Also my QVC Laura Gellar haul came in this week. Joy!

    • RAS

      I’ll be in Covent Garden very soon! Any great shopping I shouldn’t miss?

      • MissVix

        I hope you enjoy your trip to lovely London! The best thing with Covent Garden is to give yourself some time to relax and stroll and see what catches your eye. There are lots of chain places, but tucked between them are little independent shops and stalls. I love Lush (in the Piazza), Charles Fox (stage make up and more) and of course MAC. Are you in London for a while? There’s just SO much to see and do!

    Plans: get rid of the jet lag and spend time with bf and family

    Last foundation used: Lumene vitamin C

  55. Haul: This week I overcame my fear of the MAC store (isn’t that stupid? It’s so brightly lit and neat and orderly looking and fashionable, beautiful people are always in there- I really thought I didn’t belong, but on a sleepy Wednesday afternoon I went in!) and bought Studio Fix Powder Foundation (N5). Today I was still on a makeup high from my MAC purchase (though I am still a bit too intimidated to, uh, open the box) and I picked out a pretty lip gloss, GOSH cosmetics, shade 0058. Pretty deep pink. Going to use it as my “stage makeup” for a samba show on the weekend.

    Now I’ll be on the hunt for a slick little Kabuki brush for my powder foundation. Years ago, I used to use the powder foundation from the Body Shop and the sponge they include with these just isn’t right. Can’t wait to start using my new foundation :)

    Weekend plans: The community samba percussion band I’m in is playing at Bust-a-Move, which is a pretty cool cancer fund raiser. Paula Abdul is the celebrity guest and it is my mission to get a drum in that lady’s hand!

    Weekend plans: More post-surgery resting and recovery
    Last foundation you used:  Laura Mercier Oil-Free tinted moisturizer + LM powder foundation

  57. Haul: Exchanged a Korres Cherry Lip Kisses Trio set (bought more than a year ago, never opened and still had receipt!) for Korres Mango Butter Lipstick in 45 Coral. It was their last one! It was sold separately, I remember at the time of your review, Christine, that they weren’t selling it on its own. Surprisingly good coverage for a sheer lipstick.

    Also picked up another Sephora liquid eyeliner in navy black, which is a navy with shimmer.

    Weekend plans: Work, Chinese dumplings with friends, work, and indoor soccer!

    Last foundation I used: Clinique Perfectly Real. I like the finish of it and the coverage, but it kinda goes white in photos. I don’t usually use it, though!
