    Haul: I know I said I wasn’t buying anything but these were cheap – Hard Candy Duo eyeshadow in High Maintenance (mostly I got it because EVERY other time I’ve looked for it in the past year, it’s been sold out) and CoverGirl lipstick in Fervor, I think (it was one of the colours Christine reviewed) – it’s quite deep and I’ll be saving it for fall!

    Weekend plans: 3rd birthday party for my 3 year old great nephew tomorrow in Toronto then working more on our garden – it’s coming along so nicely – and helping DH install the restored/reproduced trim-work in our house.

      ooops! Forgot “must have weekend beauty product” – probably tinted moisturizer with SPF or just plain SPF product – Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer or Lise Watier Sun Smart for my face, Vichy SPF 60 for my body.

    Must-have: My Neutrogena Natureluxe Foundation. Its so silky on, it’s perfect for summer!

  6. haul: My aunt just got back from a trip to the US with loads of MAC goodies for me… I couldn’t help because the prices in dollars are SO convenient for us Europeans. So I got lipsticks in Vegas Volt, Pink Nouveau, Craving and Crosswires, powder blushes in Coygirl, Breath of Plum, Tenderling and Fleur Power, a pro blush palette and a 224 brush. Loving all of them. If I bought this much stuff here I would have spent more than double the price.

    I have 6 dogs myself!

    Haul: I got MAC Play Time from the Quite Cute collection after I noticed it randomly showing up in the LE lipsticks on the MAC site. Anybody who missed it when it was sold out can snag it now.

    Weekend plans: Just house stuff. It’s been over 100 for like 30+ days so I’m staying inside.

    Must have: I love MAC Lip Gelees for a light hint of sparkly color with minimal eye make-up on the weekends.

  10. Avatar of Dawn Dawn

    LOL, Mellan looks like he’s laughing!

    This week I got MAC Rose Quartz MSF, Big Bounce Shadow in Trophy (I’m told it goes great under the Semi-Precious MES), pigments in Genuine Orange, Royal Flush (old style jar) and Teal (old style jar).

    I currently have no plans for the weekend, but it’s forecast to be a hot one so I’ll probably be trying to stay indoors in the shade as much as possible.

    Must-have weekend beauty product? Sleep!!!

  11. Haul: Models Own polishes in Champagne and WAh Smash-Up Black, MAC Musky Amethyst lipstick from the Semi-Precious collection (I couldn’t help myself!)

    For the first time in ages I CAN CONTRIBUTE!

    I went a bit crazy at theBalm’s flash sale:
    - Shady Lady Vol 2 palette
    - Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter
    - Hot Mama blush
    - Cabana Boy blush
    - If you’re rich, I’m single overshadow
    - You buy, I’ll fly overshadow

    I also bought concert tickets but that doesn’t count here I don’t think. Christine did you pick up anything from theBalm sale?

    My weekend plans are cleaning my room and maybe hitting up the Guerlain counter at Bergdof’s. My life, it is thrilling.

    Haul: NARS powder trio including Orgasm blush, Albatross higlighter and Laguna bronzer: My new makeup essential for vacation and travel! Picked up two of the new Chanel eyeshadow formula and are LOVING them as well. Also received my first 10-pan Inglot palette, which includes my hand-picked highlighting shades as well as greens, teals, purples and blues…Loving their pearl eyeshadows!

    Weekend plans: Taking my little sis to see the last installment of Harry Potter, then tackling the painstaking process of giving my dog a haircut (which I’ve been putting off for a solid month). I’d take him to a groomer, but that’s $60 I could save for the upcoming MAC collections! LOL.

    Must have weekend beauty product: Any eyeshadow palette with bright shades in it…I usually experiment with bolder looks on weekends! I’ve been reaching for my UD Book of Shadows Volume III most often lately.

  20. Carrie Ann

    Awww, Mellan. What a sweetie. =)

    Haul: MAC Gem of Roses l/s, Natural Flare Cremesheen Glass, Semi Precious Pearl MSF, Smoked Ruby, Faux Gold & Rare Find e/s. I’m in love with Semi Precious Pearl and the obsessive compulsive freak in me loves that when the compact is closed, the MAC logo is centered right over the swirl in the middle of the MSF. It looks so cool. :)

  33. meme

    Haul: I am really trying to cut back and use up my untrieds, but could not stand it, I had to order Zoya’s Mirrors collection – the spoons are not ready to ship yet with each order free of all the fall shades, so I added the Smoke spoons to my spoon order already in and running. I got about 9 other polishes in the mail this week – assorted from eBay. Finally I bought Too Face Pink Leopard Bronzer having been lemming it for years!

    Weekend plans – get help to fix the pole in my closet that the side cups broke so it fell down.

    Must have weekend beauty product: Ummmh – maybe it’s not to buy but to FIND where my full unused bottle and my half used bottle of PTR PM retinol got shoved to! I cannot find either one of them and KNOWN they are here!

  34. Kristabelle

    Haul: from the Lime Crime 35% off sale- Candy Eyed shadow primer and Coquette lippie. While I still don’t like the company itself, the primer is absolutely amazing- makes my shadow way more vibrant and long-lasting than UDPP. And I love the lipstick, but unfortunately I got a bad one that smells nasty.
    Now just gotta decide what to do…I can’t get an exchange, since they won’t be in stock again til August. Not really wanting a refund, since then I’ll have to pay full price to order a new one. Soo I don’t know…
    And from Sugarpill, the Burning Heart palette and Bulletproof shadow. Love!!!

    Weekend plans: get some sleep, watch movies, little brother’s bday party.

    Must-have weekend beauty product: Naked palette! So easy.

  35. Shasa

    Weekend Plans: I’m attending seminars the whole day tomorrow. Will definitely be so tired by Sunday so I plan to spoil myself rotten on those paint pots! :)
    Must-have Weekend Beauty Product: The lazy girl’s makeup: BB Cream. I love this stuff. I put it in random places around the house so whenever I feel like going out but don’t really want to go through the whole makeup routine, I’d just take a small tube of this along and apply it in the car. Sometimes, I just apply this, MSFN, mascara, and tinted lip balm.

    Today I went downtown and explored Lush for the first time, and picked up a few goodies! I got myself two bath bombs, and a bubble gum lip scrub..then on the way back to our car (you have to go through a little mini mall to get to tha parking garage) I went into a German drug store also a first for me, and I picked up a new lip stick from the brand P2 in Rodeo Drive which is a really pretty nude color..I love all my new goodies, and I will def be checking out more of the German brands of make up because the one I picked up today is great quality and substantially cheaper than the American drug store brands I have been buying..it was only about $2!!

  41. Haul: I got Urban Decay’s Anniversary shadow collection (thanks for the heads-up, Christine!), some MAC brushes, some more of the permanent eyeshadows and a Pro Pan of MAC’s Blushbaby. I researched each item here in the Swatch Gallery, by the way.

    Plans: Clear out the basement at our old house. I found old makeup from the 1980′s, bleh!

    Must have makeup product: Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Stash and MAC’s Grain e/s. Yes, I’m hard-core enough to put on makeup to do heavy lifting. She who is without sin can cast the first Shimmerbrick…as long as I can keep it ;-P. I’m a light-medium….lol.

  42. Sharon M

    OK, so it’s Sunday…. but I did pick up some Lancome Bi-Facil (best eye makeup remover I’ve ever tried and this is my first full-size bottle), a tube of Definicils mascara, and some Smashbox foundation primer, all during Shoppers Drug Mart’s one-day 20X the Optimum points sale. The sales associate gave me a lot of samples, mostly Clarins and Lise Watier, which I’m looking forward to trying out. :)

    I worked all weekend because my days off are during the week.

    If you want warm weather, Christine, you can have ours… 31 Celsius right now and I am in a fifth-floor apartment without air conditioning. It’s horribly hot in here.
