  16. xamyx

    Haul: Urban Decay Vice & Smoked palettes, L’Oreal Infallible eyeshadows in Eternal Sunshine & Smoldering Plum (*exact* dupe for Burning Black, but I love the shade so much, I don’t mind having aa backup), 2 Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicures in Midnight in NY & Black Platinum (I think Walgreen’s is clearing out the line, as they were only $2.29 each on clearance).

    Plans: Playing with my new goodies!

    Accessories: My The Nightmare Before Christmas slippers; it’s Laundry Day, so I’m staying comfy while I sort out clothes.

    • What do the slippers look like?

      • xamyx

        Jack is on the left, Sally on the right; they have have pretty big “platforms”, and on them is the title, a gate with skulls impaled on the posts, and a couple of purple bats. They’re also lined with purple satin. I bought them at Hot Topic about 7 years ago, but I never wore them. They’ve been packed away all this time, and I forgot about them until I moved.

        By the way, thanks for the review & swatches of Eternal Sunshine. It seemed much more “yellow” in tyhe pot, so I kept passing on it. Between your review, and the fact Walgreen’s was having a BOGO 50%, I decided to take a chance. I have a feeling it’ll be in regular rotation for a while!

        • xamyx

          Oh, I forgot to add I’m also wearing my belly ring (silver hoop & clear bead), and silver barbell in tongue with a rhinestone. I’ve been wearing these daily for several years, and I don’t take them out, so I forget they’re considered “accessories”.

        • YAY! I’m so glad you’re enjoying Eternal Sunshine :)

    • blueraccoon

      I believe the Complete Salon Manicures line is being reformulated, not discontinued. Just as an FYI.

    • Sarah

      I thought Smoldering Plum and Burning Black were the same product but it’s just called Burning Black outside of the US..?

      • xamyx

        @ blueraccoon Thanks for the info! These are one of my favorite polishes, so I hope they stick around!

        @ sarah Yes, they *are* the same product, as it turns out. Before buying Smoldering Plum, I wasn’t 100% sure they were *exactly* the same, which they are, but since they were on sale, and it’s a shade I’ll get a *lot* of use from, it was worth picking it up. The really funny part is, not even a week after I broke down and got BB on ebay (from the UK), PP was released here. In fact, it was literally in the mail.

  17. AnGeLwInGz

    Mellan’s so sweet!
    Haul: All refills – Fekkai Protein Rx shampoo and conditioner (they’re discontinuing my original and changing the packaging so they can charge $10 more! I was lucky to find it still in stock at Blue Mercury), Skyn Iceland Icelandic Relief eye pen, Skyn Iceland Glacial Face Wash, Thayer’s Lavender witch hazel toner, Murad Post-Acne Spot Treatment, sweet almond oil (I use for hair and body) Urban Decay Lip Envy in Greedy, and 5 bottles of lotion from Bath & Body Works – Brown Sugar & Fig and Winter Candy Apple. Also a shea butter hand cream.
    Weekend plans: work, put away my summer clothes and bring out my cool weather outfits.
    What accessories do you have on right now: 7 silver hoop earrings in each ear, clear crystal nose stud, gold chain with various charms, pink crystal belly ring, silver heart bracelet, engagement ring.

  18. Courtney

    Ha! My cats know the word “dinnertime” too. They come running when they hear me call it. :)

    Haul: I bought FOUR sets of Kiss nail stickers cause they have some really pretty ones out right now.

    Weekend plans: I’m singing in a show tonight which I’m SUPER excited for. Then I have to clean for my parents’ visit, start Skyrim, then my theater show on Sunday. Gonna be busy!

    Accessories: Well shoot, just the hoops in my ears. I have a ring that I wear every day, but I forgot to put it on this morning. Kind of ironic since I was double checking that I had all my costume pieces and makeup for tonight. Guess it slipped my mind.

  19. virginiaisforluvrs

    Hauled a couple Tarina Tarantino blushes and the eyeshadow palette that you reviewed long ago that I’ve been wanting so much (on sale!). It’s the “emerald” one.

    • The Emerald palette is SO pretty!
