    Haul: Not really a haul but I got Kenzo’s “L’eau wild” limited edition perfume for my birthday on august 2 ^^ smells divine !

    Weekend plans: I will probably go to the pool with Déborah my best friend if it’s sunny, but anyway i’m meeting up with her ;) and also take care of my dog since she’s getting a few more stitches (after the surgery she went through, her skin takes longer to heal so it’s actually the 3rd time she’s getting a few more stitches). Oh and I’ll probably cook too ^^ This weekend dessert will be white chocolate Panna cotta ^^

    Go-to summer foundation: None… those day I don’t put on foundation, just moisturizer, sun protection and a bit of blush. I don’t really like the feeling of foundation on my skin in summer cause my skin is really dry. I will soon try to find a tinted moisturizer though ^^

    Haul: MUFE Aqua Lip liner #15C

    Weekend plans: Spending a relaxing weekend around home, since next week/weekend I’ll be down the shore a ton!

    Go-to summer foundation: Perricone Tinted Moisturizer or MAC Studio Moisture Tint

  5. Jill

    Haul: FINALLY got one of the MUFE liquid liners! and the too-faced cocoa bronzer. my sephora box should be waiting for me on my doorstep when I get home from work today!
    Weekend Plans: heading out to CO for a wedding
    Summer foundation: MAC studio fix fluid set with blot powder – practically the only thing that won’t slide off my oily skin (yuk)

  6. Haul: I decided to pick up some things from the Blogger’s Obsession just for me, so I got Sparkle Neely Sparkle & Sonoran Rain. I also got Lush Amber l/s and Natural Flare l/g. Lush Amber looks lighter in person than it does on my computer monitor. I may not keep it. :/

    Weekend Plans: I have to complete some health insurance forms for NYU, and I’ll be visiting my brother and his puppy on Saturday. The boyfriend and I want to take a walk along Riverside Drive, since the weather’s been so nice.

    Go-To Summer Foundation: Usually a powder like MAC Blot.

  7. Devi

    Ooh, happy belated birthday to your sister, and happy birthday to Shaun (sp?) AKA the Tech Guy! ^_^

    Haha, so when you’re not doing swatches or reviews for the blog, you’re throwing a water Frisbee for Mellan. <3

  8. Kristabelle

    Haul: a bunch of unexciting stuff from Walmart (replacement foundation, concealer, etc), replacement of MAC Brule, Too Faced Primed and Poreless. Was trying hard not to spend money this week.
    Weekend plans: Flying out tonight to go to Long Beach Island for a week!
    Go-to summer foundation: L’oreal True Match for heavy coverage, Revlon Photoready for a more natural, sheer look.

  9. Melissa

    I love the pool pictures of Mellan! I have two labs and they love swimming.

  10. Christine

    Haul-120 colou pallette 2nd edition; 15th anniversary eyeshadow set from UD, Tokidoki lipgloss in Burger, Rosebud salve, Kat Von D true love eyeshadow pallette…
    Plans- nothing at all, still recovering from being deathly ill a few weeks ago….hanging out with my daughter and thanking god I am still here to do so :)
    Go To Summer Foundation-I use MUFE HD all the time, its either that or nothing :)

  11. Debra

    Aww, the look in Mellan’s eyes melts your heart!

  12. Yazmin

    Haul: Few pallettes to depot my eyeshadows
    Weekend plans: making lots and lots of bubble tea! we are all addicted
    Summer foundation: Dont have one

  13. Leslie

    Haul: I had a $25 gift card for Sephora from my birthday which gave me a great excuse to do a big haul. Picked up a Buxom lip gloss in Margarita, Buxom lip stick in Athens, UD lip color in Crush, Illamasqua nail polish in Jo’mina (so excited about this one!), NARS nail polish in Galion, and Illamasqua blushes in Tremble and Tweak. I just saw that they’re having a VIB weekend with double points though, so I’m a little bummed I didn’t wait 4 days.

    Weekend plans: Maybe some shopping for the tax-free weekend. Other than that, relax. Deadlines have been insane at work and I may have jury duty on Monday.

    Summer foundation: I haven’t found one yet. In fact, it’s crazy hot right now and all my foundations are failing me, even my trusty Mehron Celebre Pro HD. I’m really tempted to run out and get MAC’s Pro Longwear, but I really don’t need anymore foundations. Last time I counted, I had 17. YIKES.

  14. Haul – Some new MAC 15 palettes, major organization about to happen! UD 24/7 Liquid liner in Radium, MUFE Aqua Cream #16, and tons of freebies from Sephora. The associate hooked me up bigtime! 2 of the Bare Escentuals 3 piece kits (Matte and Original), Smashbox Luminizing Lotion, and the VIB hatbox (might be only in Canada, I’m not sure). There are 8 deluxe samples, including NARS Pro Prime, a couple of perfumes, Stila lip and cheek stain, and other stuff.

    Weekend plans – Dairyfest! I’m not a country girl at all, but I was asked to go, so I will.

    Go to summer foundation – Tinted Moisturizers seem to break me out, so I use my MUFE HD, or if it’s too hot, I don’t use anything.

    My folks broke down and got a little pool for their German Shepherd. She loves it!

    Have a great weekend everyone!

  15. Haul: Philosophy Purity foaming cleanser, replacement brush head for my Clarisonic Mia, Dior Lip Addict in Smokey #811, $OPI in Rumba Romance

    Weekend plans: Study for CPA exam

    Go-to summer foundation: Laura Mercier Oil-free Tinted Moisturizer

  16. Carrie Ann

    Haul: Urban Decay 15 Year Anniversary Palette (yay!)

    Weekend plans: Not sure yet. I do have to take an exam tomorrow, which is a bit of a bummer.

    Go-to summer foundation: Revlon Colorstay Active Light, but it’s been discontinued. Estee Lauder Double Wear Light is similar but a lot more expensive. :(

  17. Avatar of Sharron Sharron

    Haul: Morgana Cryptoria’s new lip balms in Sheer Plum, Sheer Cherry, & Countess Bathory.

    Weekend plans: Expand my makeup station, move my stash into better storage containers, & finish setting up my new blog. My Mom’s birthday is on Sunday, so we’re going out to dinner.

    Go-to summer foundation: Tarte Balancing Foundation.

  18. Anita

    Haul: Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette and Urban Decay 2/7 Shadow Pencil in Sin.

    Weekend Plans: Shopping and relaxing

    Summer Foundation: Mac mineralize skin finish natural

  19. Avatar of Alicia alicia

    Haul: Well because of Sephora’s double points weekend and the sample hatbox, today I bought UD’s Naked Palette and 15th Anniversary Palette (I already have both but wanted backups!) plus UD’s new eyelash curler.
    Weekend: Tomorrow I am tutoring a couple of students in math, then having dinner with my boyfriend, my brother and his girlfriend. I get to watch my other dog Kiko (my brother and I have shared custody), and Sunday my boyfriend is have some people over for D&D (geeking out, yes!).

    Foundation: I’m been mixing up UD Tinted Moisturizer and Stila’s Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer (to lighted UD because it’s a little dark for me). If I’m going someplace special I’ll use MUFE HD.

    Go-to summer foundation: I generally use Meow’s lightweight mineral foundation for most of the year anyway.

  24. Haul: I went on a recon mission to Sally Beauty to determine if I wanna get a UV lamp to do gel nails or not. While I was there, I picked up some Palladio stuff (herbal eyeshadow primer and plump’n’shine lip gloss in Frosting). I also picked up a few little lipstick samples from the front cash spinner for like a buck each :)

    Weekend Plans: Samba practice tomorrow, then work on Sunday! There is a street performance festival going on for the next week or so, might go watch the buskers.

    Go-to Summer Foundation: Quo Sheer Mineral Tint. I really *need* more coverage, but it feel so nice. And on an especially hot day there’s only so much you can do.

    Haul: UD 15th Anniversary Eyeshadow palette (sigh…gorgeousness); another Eden Primer Potion (in the squeeze tube) – gave my other one to my daughter and as I went over the border to a CCO today, MAC’s Night Manoevres, Humid and Greasepaint in French Quarter (almost got Greengrease too but decide to pass). I was going to try a “no buy” but had to put it off for the UD palette! And my first trip to a CCO – I had to buy something! But now, no more makeup til September 8! You are all my witnesses.
