    I spent rather a lot this week. From MAC I got Cinderfella, Smutty Green, Daylight, the 286 brush, and the Berry pigment Dazzlesphere. From Urban Decay I got the 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils in Perversion and Delinquent plus the 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Liner in Retrograde. I also got the Estée Lauder Cyber Metallic eyeshadows in Cyber Lilac and Cyber Silver, and a free Soap & Glory “Thick & Fast” mascara with Elle magazine. I’ve also recently discovered Rockalily lipsticks (www.rockalily.com)and got Pompadour Pink, Rockette Red, Mermaid, Sailors Beware and their brand new colour ZOMG! I’m very impressed with them.

    I’m hoping to catch up on a bit of sleep this weekend, kids permitting.

    I seriously squeed when I saw all of the MAC boxes! So excited to see what the products actually look like. And hopefully it will cut my list down instead of add to it…..but that never happens

  16. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Manisha Manisha

    I was abled to place an oline order for the new MAC collections so I jumped on it :

    From shop Mac, Cook Mac : Runaway Red Lipstick, Woo Mee Kissable Lip Colour, Midnight Snack, WHolesome and Added Good nes Fluidlines, Salad Dressed and Kid Orange Nail Lacquers.

  17. Mabeline

    Haul: Urban Decay’s Naked 2 Palette, Julie Hewett lip balm and a bunch of INGLOT eyeshadows

    Even though I already have UD’s original Naked palette I still felt I needed the Naked 2 palette. All the shades that drew me to the second one were not in the original one and I love the dual ended brush. If given the choice, I prefer the second palette better because it has a matte black and medium toned brown with a double ended brush. But that’s just me.

    Weekend Plans: I’ll be teaching two jewelrymaking classes. Maybe I can squeeze in a movie.

    Eyeliner I always reach for: It depends on what is on my bathroom counter. Lately, I have been reaching for my MAC Kohl Pencil in Feline.

  18. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Mariella Mariella

    Plans: get the last of my daughter’s stuff stored in the basement (it’s all piled up in the living room and guest room right now)
    Eyeliner I always reach for: GOSH Metallic Brass but I really want to give the Tarina Tarantino liners a try.

  19. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of looovemac Luljeta

  40. Alexis J.

Then I went to Ulta and got 2 NYX lip liners, an Ulta dual pencil sharpener (big enough for the NYX jumbo eyeshadow pencils), and my first Zoya polish in Dree.

    Weekend Plans – Hanging out with my family and watching the Superbowl. Go Commercials! Haha

    Eyeliner – I’ve been reaching for UD Zero a lot, but moreso because I want to use it up…there is only a little bit left!

    Weekend plans: Hopefully some videos :)

    Eyeliner you always reach for?: MAC Feline for smudging and MAC Chromaline is Black Black for a crisp line.

  42. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of fabiola fabiola

    Mellan is so cute, you could eat him with a spoon. Love animals.

  43. Miss J

    Haul: I picked up Essie Luxe Effects in Shine of the Times and a new Orly Bonder Base. Despite buying lash glue last week, I decided to pick up that Revlon lash glue with the brush applicator to try and take on-the-go. I picked up Ardell 301s (half lashes). At Walgreens, noticed a new beauty blender dupe, so decided to pick it up since it was only $7 or $8. I also made Benefit Hervana mine this week, woot. I’m thinking that was it for beauty related stuff this week.

    Weekend plans: Clean and Superbowl!

    Eyeliner you always reach for?: MAC Blacktrack Fluidline. Bought it when it first launched and have used it predominantly ever since.

    That is an adorable photo of Mellan! Hope you and everyone has a wonderful weekend! For anyone who is a football fan, who are you guys cheering for?

  44. AWWWWWW! I died looking at the Shop Mac Cook Mac collection!

    Haul: MAC Shop MAC Cook MAC collection (Quick Sizzle, Dish It up, Watch Me simmer), Britney Spears Curious Perfume (It was on sale for $10–full size!) Maybelline Color tattoo in Bad to the Bronze, Rimmel London Foundation (again, on sale!!)

    Weekend Plans: Homework and exam prep

    Eyeliner you always reach for: Physician’s Formula Liquid Liner

  45. Jennifer

    Haul:
    Armani eyes to kill intense shadows! Got rock sand and khaki pulse last week and loved them so much I immediately ordered more!
    -Gold Blitz
    -Purpura
    -Blast of Blue
    -Lust Red
    -Pulp Fiction
    -White Punch
    -Copper/Black Grey

    Weekend Plans: Grading, homework, homework, grading, sleep, homework, homework, etc…

    Eyeliner I always reach for: Urban Decay Perversion

  46. Kate

    Haul: Nothing
    Weekend plans: Super Bowl party on Sunday
    Eyeliner I always reach for: MAC fluidline in Dipdown is my current go-to, though I’m trying to cycle my eyeliners more often.

    I’ve been out of the makeup loop for a while now and I only recently learned that Chanel’s Aqualumiere lipsticks have been discontinued. Although there are duplicates for many of the Aqualumiere colors in the Rouge Coco Shine colors, the Monte Carlo Aqualumiere isn’t one of them. This despite the confusing/misleading fact that there is a RCS named Monte Carlo :( Any of you know a good dupe for Chanel’s Monte Carlo Aqualumiere?

  47. Joan

    Best ever Mellan photo….makes me smile & feel all mushy inside, and of course long for another dog to call my own!

    Eyeliner you always reach for?: L’oreal infallible lineur intense. Super pigmented, creamy, easy to blend…I like it better than most expensive ones.

  49. “Hey, get those beauty boxes off of me….I’m beautiful without any makeup” Look at the look he is giving!

  50. Nicole

    Haul: Another week without a makeup haul. I am so proud.
    Weekend plans: Get a hair cut, look for a new bag and do some researche for an interview next week
