    As you can see I went completely overboard with brushes. I was looking for a large brush for finishing powder and ended up with a bunch of eyeshadow brushes instead, lol.

    Weekend plans: Not sure yet. My mom is visiting tomorrow. I really need to re-organize my closet so I might do that on Sunday if I have time.

    When do you shower?: In the morning! Showers always wake me up, so if I had them before bed I wouldn’t be able to sleep.

    • Whewww!! That is a haul :) If you had to pick one item, what are you most excited for?

      • Avatar of tzwiggy t_zwiggy

        That’s a hard one! If I HAD to choose, I’d probably go for one of the RBR eyeshadows. Abyssinian Catbird looks really really nice! The color seems to be similar to Armani ETK #6 :D

  3. Dawn

    Picked up the Urban Decay Naked Palette #1 the other day and I love it! I’m usually a MAC girl, but now I want Naked Palette #2.

  4. Avatar of Aida Aida

    I ordered a fourth Burberry complete eye palette, No.2 Mocha and another single, No.8 Khaki. And they come with a gift with purchase to sweeten the deal (two mini velvet lipsticks, makeup bag and a lot of samples). I also bought another Origins GinZing brightening cream shadow in Coffee Buzz (I have Khaki Kick and I love it).
    Plans: celebrating my father-in-law’s birthday on Sunday.
    I shower in the morning, but I love taking baths in the evenings.

  5. Avatar of Jade Jade

    HAHAHA I love how Mellan is like… but I can’t really figure out how to get in there… the side is too high… “Okay!” I’m in, Mom, I’m in!

    I hauled 5 Covergirl Liquiline Blast eyeliners this week! I also bought the Ecotools Bronzer brush, which I LOVE for applying my Studio Fix Fluid, totally eclipsed the 187 for me. I got some new primer too, Face of Australia brand, it’s a bang on dupe for Napoleon Auto-Pilot Primer. LOVE it!!

    Nothing of note for the weekend but I got some pretty amazing news this week… I was offered a job as a trainee vet nurse, my dream job!! Still in shock, I can’t believe it.

  6. Avatar of Jessica Jessica Ringle

    Aw that video was so sweet! I wish my rotten dogs enjoyed baths:)

    Picked up the MAC Shell Pearl Beauty Powder from Year of the Snake. Very excited to try it out.

  7. Avatar of Mariella Mariella

    Haul: absolutely nothing!

    Weekend plans: yoga and the gym and perhaps a movie. I want to make some stew tomorrow as well

    When do I shower – it varies so much but I much prefer showering in the evening – my mornings are just a bit too hectic and the house is a bit of a mad-house generally. Before bed, I can really luxuriate but there are times I’ll shower when I get home from school or in the middle of the afternoon or whenever the whim takes me if I’m not working that day.

  8. Avatar of Jessica Jessica

    The past week/10 days have not been the greatest work-wise, so I have applied a poultice of retail therapy and seem to be feeling better!
    Haul: Urban Decay Glinda palette, MAC Shell Pearl beauty powder, paint pots in Let’s Skate and Vintage Selection and lipglass in Nymphette. I also bought the Once Upon A Time eyeshadow solely because I love that show and Cream Soda blush because that was my dad’s favorite drink! Happily, I like both colors a lot!
    Weekend Plans: Getting my hair done tomorrow, Downton Abbey and Beyonce on Sunday!
    Shower Time: Before bed. That way, I can sleep in a little longer in the morning!

  9. Nastassia

    Haul: MAC Daddy’s Little Girl ; Boyfriend Stealer.. Might grab something else from the collection
    Weekend Plan : well my due date was TODAY.. but my little man is clearly comfortable :( who knows what my plans will be this weekend
    Shower: night time feel so relaxed after :D

    Awwwwwwww I was waiting for this post sooooooo sweet , he only needs okeee awwww

  11. Avatar of Mar A Mar

    Picked up MAC Daddy’s Little Girl! Expecting my Glossybox soon. Also, I can’t get past my desire for a bright pink lip for spring. Any suggestions for a light/warm skintone? I’m blankly staring at MAC right now and completely spacing out on what to grab.

    • MAC Girl About Town is classic :)

      • Avatar of Mar A Mar

        Thanks, Christine!

        Haul for the week is just Daddy’s Little Girl and picked up Party Parrot (missed it the first round)! It’s been one of those weeks where anything is awesome at this point. I’m looking to finish some writing, get an hour of yoga in and call it a night! I rather hope I can say that for the whole weekend!

  12. Avatar of Veronica Veronica

    I had wanted to pick up MAC Viva Glam Nicki 2, but they only had the display and not the actual product. :( WHY DO YOU TEMPT ME WITH YOUR SWEET LIES, MAC COUNTER.

    Haul: The last big haul before a three month hiatus – NARS Night Porter eyeshadow, NARS Smudgeproof eyeshadow primer, Buxon Venus Luminizer, MAC Magenta lip pencil, Sephora Silicone-free face primer, BareMinerals loose foundation in Fair, Buxom Sugar lipgloss, Buxom mascara (deluxe sample), Boots No. 7 Rose Pink blush, and Urban Decay Glinda palette. I couldn’t help myself on the palette. :P When I swatched it in stores I fell in love with it all over again and nabbed it.

    Weekend Plans: I’m working all weekend, but hopefully I’ll get more writing done.

    When do you shower? I generally use it as a wake-up, so right after I awaken. I’ve tried to do it at night, but it just won’t catch for me.

    • Wow! What a bummer that they had the display but not the product!

      • Avatar of Veronica Veronica

        I actually asked them why they had it on display for sale if it wasn’t available yet (apparently it’s launching the 9th, but they already have it in on hand stock), and the MUA said they wanted to repromote the original shade with the hype from the new one. From the look on the guy’s face, I’m pretty sure he felt as silly saying that as it sounded.

  13. Avatar of Mirian Vermeulen Mirian

    haul: UD glinda, ton of archies girls, and diptyque tam dao :)

    weekend plans: dinner with my parents

    when do i shower: morning or night. doesn’t matter :)

  14. Avatar of Mariah Mariah

    OMG that is so precious! He likes his bath!!! My dog hated them! If she thought she was getting a bath, she’d hide and not come out! Haha!

  15. CC

    My Haul: MAC Plumful from the Snake Collection; MAC Ronnie Red and Daddy’s Little Girl, still debating if I should get Shell Pearl but I think I will pass and get Dior’s Amber Diamond instead. I also got a bunch of art materials and I still need to get more, art majors are not cheap! lol

    Weekend Plans: Work! I got a little promotion so I’m excited and nervous at the same time!

    Showers: I like them in the evenings, but sometimes they feel great in the mornings!

    • I had a friend who went to art school, and my goodness, you are SO right that it’s not cheap!

      • CC

        Yes! Specially if you want great quality paints and brushes, a rich color made with true pigments will cost around $50 (depends on the color as well) and that is a small tube! A true Cobalt Blue (beautiful blue) was like $80!! And don’t get me started with brushes…

  16. Avatar of Jennifer Jennifer

    I’m really getting into ds makeup so I picked up loreal infallible eyeshadow in purple obsession(to celebrate getting into school for fall) and a new loreal nail polish called royalty reinvented. Oh and loreal voluminous million lash mascara!

  17. Avatar of rebecca blueraccoon

    (I was wondering what happened to this and then figured with all the Archie reviews it got pushed to the side *g* Also, Mellan is *awesome*. Such a cutie!)

    Haul:I kinda went overboard this week. Tarte Energy LipSurgence, Laura Mercier lip glace in Discrete and caviar eye stick in Sand Glow, YSL Volupte Sheer Candy in Fig (I know you hated this but I actually kinda love mine), Benefit’s World Famous Easiest Nudes kit, Lancome Baume in Love in Urban Ballet, Clinique Chubby Stick for eyes in Bountiful Beige, Estee Lauder Sensuous Rose blush, UD Glinda palette (I went to Ulta to exchange a BB cream and walked out with that, somehow), Hourglass Femme Rouge lipstick in Vintage, MAC 242 brush. Whew! It helps that for some of it I was returning items so I didn’t spend as much as it looks like.

    Weekend plans: Gaming Saturday and work/house hunting Sunday. We’re slowly running out of time to find one, eep.

    Shower: Mostly I shower at night because it means I can sleep later in the morning, but I have to admit I like a shower in the morning to wake me up and get me going.

  18. Avatar of Dee Dee

    HAUL: Just recently started wearing lipsticks. So I bought Candy Yum Yum, Pink Noveau, Vegas Volt and Lady Danger. Gotta thank Christine for the wonderful reviews. Planning to purchase more next Friday! Can’t wait :]

    WEEKEND PLANS: Meeting my one week old nephew for the first time. :]

    SHOWER: I love both! I how it wakes me up in the morning and I love going to bed fresh and clean.

    • I see someone likes their bright lipsticks :)

      • Avatar of Dee Dee

        Ahh I guess I’m into bright and bold lipsticks then. Still waiting for your review on Veronica lippies. I’m currently liking Ronnie Red, Betty Bright, Plumful and Rebel. Hopefully, I’ll be able to pull them off. Btw, I wear MUFE #140. Can you recommend an everyday blush? :) <3 Temptalia!

    • Miss J

      Congrats on the new nephew!! I’m going through similar excitement with being a first time aunt/having a new nephew. :) It’s wonderful, huh?! Btw, great lipstick picks!

  19. ms

    local cco.

    mac hepcat
    bobbie brown burnt sugar 9
    bb midnight 12 (blue color)
    bb taupe 4 first time buying bb eyeshadows, i swatched them, dang they are soft!

    mac magenta blush, i thought it was pro and famous, came home and saw that you’ve given it a c+, oh well, i don’t return products (unless they are untouched) and it can’t be that bad. i’ll keep it.

    i really, really, really need to stop buying eyeshadows.

    question: are you planning to review lorac pro palette soon?

  20. Avatar of Caroline Caroline

    I love your pictures/videos of Mellan, what a gorgeous boy. He has such a sweet face. :)

  21. Avatar of Anne Anne

    Haul- *hem* Chanel Poudre Signée de Chanel illuminating powder (God, I hope I got that one right… I swear, those names!)

    Weekend plans- work, work, work!

    When do you shower- almost always in the evening. It’s just so soothing.

  22. Miss J

    Haul: The most recent purchase I made was the Eylure “Oh, Honey!” lashes. Other than that, I picked up a couple of favorites that I needed to get (NARS Pure Radiant TM & NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base) and Smashbox “Flush” Blush. Would love to get the UD Theodora Palette, NARS Seduction Blush, and that new eye palette, but I’ve got other expenses that come first, so looks like I’m going to miss out on those.

    Weekend plans: I was really hoping to get to meet my new nephew this weekend, but I think I have a stomach bug, so that’s definitely not happening this weekend because I’m not risking getting the little one sick. Definitely bummed, but will probably just be spending the weekend drinking fluids, not eating, looking for jobs, and watching the game on Sunday.

    When do you shower?: I’m more of a shower at night person. It’s relaxing and I much prefer getting into bed all fresh and clean.

  23. Stacey

    Waiting for all of Christine’s MAC review to decide.
    Going to the gym when the game is on so it is less crowded.
    Cannot sleep until I take a bath/ shower. Cannot sleep with all the grime I accumulated during the day.
    BTW, what a good boy Mellan is….probably also wondering when you would post his picture up.

  24. Avatar of Ashley Ashley

    Haul: Urban Decay Sustainable Palette.
    Bare Minerals Prime Time Eyeshadow in Urban Nature
    MAC Viva Glam Nicki 2
    Butter London Sprog
    OPI Stay the Night, My Pointe Exactly, The Impossible, Suzi Take the Wheel and Tomorrow Never Dies
    NYX Lip Liner in Nude Pink (or Pink Nude, I can’t remember)

    Weekend Plans: Catching up on writing. Going to see Warm Bodies. Trip across town to the comic book store.

    Shower: Usually in the morning, but I’ve always loved nighttime showers.

  25. The slew of MAC posts has been keeping me busy reading, LOL! Thanks for all your hard work, Christine! :-)

    Haul: This week had a definite theme! :-)
    Seche Vite
    China Glaze For Audrey
    A couple of nail files
    Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover (my cuticles are atrocious! I’m hoping this will help.)
    Zoya lacquers in Pippa, Arizona, and Sari

    Weekend plans:
    Work on blog posts for the upcoming week and give Buster (my dog) a bath. Mellan inspired me.

    When do you shower?
    I HAVE to shower in the morning. Even if I have showered the night before, I still have to take one in the morning. Otherwise, I feel icky.

  26. Avatar of Tuva Tuva

    Haul: Oh, I’ve ordered way too much this week.
    8 ELF nail polishes
    8 ELF cream eyeliners
    ELF flawless finish foundation
    8 ELF blushes
    A variety of ELF concealers
    ELF liquid eyeliner
    ELF lipliner (Nearly Nude)
    ELF lipstick (Charming)
    ELF Plumping Lip Glaze (Moca Ice)
    ELF Dual Pencil Sharpener
    ELF Lip Exfoliator
    4 ELF lip glosses
    All of ELFs top rated brushes
    ELF eyeliner pen
    7 ELF Brightening eyeshadow quads
    ELF Blush And Bronzer Compact (Orgasm + Laguna dupe)
    ELF High Definition Powder
    ELF Baked Blush (Peachy Cheeky)
    ELF Baked Bronzer (St. Lucia)
    5 ELF Luscious Liquid Lipsticks
    ELF Mineral Booster

    Did I mention they had a sale? :P I’ve never tried any ELF products before, so I went a bit overboard since it was a sale.

    Also:
    bareMinerals Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara
    bareMinerals READY SPF 15 Touch Up Veil – Translucent
    bareMinerals Jumbo Prime Time Foundation Primer
    Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation
    Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil
    Emu Oil Well Emu Skin Cream (looove their eye cream)
    Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Body Lotion
    Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Firming Butter

    I’m also waiting for a ton of Mario Badescu products, the first I’ve ordered have done miracles for my skin, so I am so excited to try them out. :) Still waiting for the UB Naked lipgloss as well.

    Weekend plans: watch wintersports (I am an addict), clean out the enourmous storage closets, go for some lovely walks with my German Shepherd and eat lots of good food. :)

    Shower: always in the evening. I get way too hot if I shower in the morning, and I hate going to bed not feeling clean. Since I’ve got curly hair, I can easily go to bed with wet hair, wake up with the most insane looking hair and still make it look good with a bit of styling. :P

    • I know it’s a big haul when it takes up the whole screen, LOL! :D

      What Mario Badescu products have been miracle products for you so far?

      • Avatar of Tuva Tuva

        What I’ve tried so far is:
        The drying cream – pretty good at drying out pimples, even the “underground” ones. Waiting for the drying lotion, which is supposed to be even better.

        The healing cream – has done miracles for my sensitive, dry, dehydrated, flaky, red skin, acne-prone skin (yes, it’s a nightmare). No more flaky, red nose, less redness, no dry skin, no stingyness (which I often get from other products). It has made my skin so soft, less red and I have barely had any pimples since I started using it. In the beginning I used it all over my face, but since the pot is so small (and expensive), I’ve started to just use it in problem areas. Probably my HG skin product!

        The control cream – also makes skin less red, more hydrated and more evened toned.

        The silver powder – have only tried this twice yet, but it is supposed to work miracles for blackheads, whiteheads and enlarged pores.

        The facial spray – have barely tried it out, but it seems very hydrating. Smells quite strongly of rose though.

        I’ve also got an eye make-up remover, which works decently.

        What I’ve found, is that none of the products irritate my skin or break me out, they don’t sting or cause redness, and particularly the healing cream has done miracles. :)

        Got the glycolic acid toner yesterday, waiting on the healing and soothing mask, the special healing powder, another healing cream, enzyme cleansing gel and the drying lotion. :)

  27. Haha I was waiting for this! Mellan is SUCH a good dog! If I ever get a dog I hope I’ll be able to make it just as nice ;)

    Haul: My Hourglass Suede and Paperself lashes arrived! I also got Burberry Plum Pink. I am kind of happy only 4 of the quads are available here, and it’s really the only one I want (for now).

    Weekend plans: I’m actually supposed to kick back and relax this weekend. I even managed to clean the house on Friday just so that I’ll be able to do that! However I’m itching to do some more photos so we’ll see. We’re going to a spa for massage on Sunday! That’s going to be relaxing I hope.

    When do you shower: Usually in the morning. Sometimes I do it before bedtime so I can go to bed all fuzzy and warm though.

    • I think my biggest advice is… to annoy the crap out of any dog you get from the get-go. We would just touch and pull at him EVERYWHERE, ALL THE TIME, as a puppy, so he is very, very tolerant. There are no “spots” you can’t touch. His threshold for being annoyed is so, so high. But I can put my hands on his feet, tail, in his mouth, etc. and I feel like this has made him a generally more mellow and easy going dog overall :)

      • Haha OK I’ll bear this in mind! I’m just a bit worried the dog will very soon find out I’m a big softie and start doing whatever!

  28. Avatar of Beckie Beckie

    HAUL: MAC- Veronica’s blush pearlmatte x2, prom princess blush, cream soda blush, girl next door lipstick, daddy’s little girl lipstick, kiss & don’t tell lipgloss, cheers my dear pigment, spoiled rich palette, and Archie mirror. MAYBELLINE- Oh La Lilac color whisper. UD- Theodora and Glinda palette. CHANEL- poudre signee de Chanel highlighting powder… needless to say I’m not buying anymore makeup for along time

    WEEKEND PLANS: need to go to target to get a new home phone

    SHOWER: on weekdays I do it at night so I don’t have to get up early and on weekends I do it in the morning so I can just crash at night lol

  29. Nicoco Chanel

    Haul:
    – Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Colour Dye in 7.64 (Intense Red Copper)
    – Batiste dry shampoo in Cherry
    – Maybelline The Falsies Waterproof
    – Rimmel Glam Eyes Lash Flirt (Which I didn’t think I’d haul because I couldn’t find it, but I found it for £3 in B&M so I did oops)
    – Garnier Clean and Fresh Cleansing Milk
    – Along Came Betty One Pot of Polish (basically Tesco’s version of S&G)
    I hauled quite a lot of clothing (for me) and a few candles too. I still need to buy more things though, since I need to replace my toner and I think I need to start buying eye cream (aaaa I’m old D: ). And there’s a new range at Superdrug that have Micellar Water that I want >>

    Plans: Um, I just finished tidying up the bedroom, but aside from that I have nothing concrete.

    When do you shower?: Whenever I’m dirty haha. I don’t really have a time of day I prefer to shower in, so it just depends on when I feel like I need to wash everything off me.

  30. Haul: MAC Shell Pearl, Lancome Jade Crush waterproof Kohl eyeliner and 3 old stock Z-palettes on clearance from a ebay seller. ;)

    Weekend plans: Reclaimed my kitchen from the mice so I’m back to working on a dress. Body count 10 but Saturday …..

    When do you shower?: I shower before bed because I let my hair dry over night and I don’t have 3 hours in the morning to wait for it to air dry.

    Mellan looks like he is saying “is he water right yet?” lol

  31. I picked up a couple of things from MAC Archie’s Girls…Betty Bright Lipstick and Cream Soda Blush. Excited for them to arrive!

    Weekend plans: Going downtown with my fiancee for date night and a little shopping!

    I always shower in the morning before work. Then I shower every night after working out!

  32. Avatar of KaseyCannuck KaseyCannuck

    The three paint pots that I ordered arrived. I’m considering a 10-pan project, or maybe a 5-pan, although that could take years!!

    I have a family get-together Saturday evening, and might do grocery shopping Sunday afternoon, when the stores will be empty because everyone will be watching the Superbowl.

    I have the same shower schedule as you, Christine, in the morning and before bed. The morning is because I go the gym and in the evening it’s just to feel clean before going to bed.

  33. Avatar of Amanda amanda

    Haul: My Glinda Palette and single of Mildew arrived yesterday! I also picked up some Organix products earlier this week.
    Weekend plans: Cooking lots of food, and taking pictures of that food.
    When do you shower?: At night. My hair is really long and takes a long time to dry (don’t like using heat on it) so showering in the morning doesn’t really work for me haha

  34. Haha, Mellan and his bath! I love how he wanted to get in there but seemed a bit stumped by the height of the side at first. I used to wash Kafka in my shower/bath, but the flying German shepherd hair that stuck to all the walls when he’d shake himself was too much. So with The Hairy German (10 times *MORE* hair!!), I always do it outside.

    Haul: erm, stuff…. no makeup stuff.

    Weekend Plans: I need to really clean my house. The Hairy German is blowing out his winter coat, so my house looks like it has giant dust balls like in an old Western movie. Every time I brush him and then vacuum/sweep, MORE hair seem to pop up. (??!?) I also need to organise my desk & office which look like a tornado hit it, but I’ll probably procrastinate for yet another week (or two)…

    Shower: No set time, but I prefer at nights. It’s one of the few ways I can unwind and get the knots out of my neck after a long day.

    • No makeup? Fragrance counts. I know you had to have purchased fragrance sometime this week!

      • *Blush* I did. I count perfume as “beauty” though, so I got away with saying “no makeup.” LOL. I got samples of some more Tom Fords and more Serge Lutens, as well as some things from Bond No. 9 & L’Artisan Parfumeur. And a big *giant* decant of one of the Guerlain Exclusives arrived up today as a gift from a friend. It’s called Angelique Noir, and I think I’m going to start testing it out tonight. :D

    • Nicoco Chanel

      Aaahhh shedding shepherds lmao. My family used to own shepherds and I feel your pain haha.

    • Avatar of Tuva Tuva

      Got to love our shedding shepherds! :D

  35. lodnonhermit

    Be careful when shopping ladies. I was on my way to Marshalls to do some perfumes and beauty hauling. I stopped at an ATM that has side by side terminals. I noticed a guy was already there on the right side terminal I went to the one on the left. He had been pressing numbers and coming up with no money. I was rushing so I got my money and left without making sure the screen cleared. I then went and got a coffee at a Dunkin Donuts across from the ATM. On the way back I noticed that the man had moved to the ATM I was at. He continues to press buttons and come up with no money. I knew it was sketchy but I wanted to make it to Marshalls. I got to Marshalls and my card was declined. Long story short the guy tried to log into my account. He tried 17 times after the third time the account locks itself. I got it straightened out with the bank but it was nerve racking and a pain in the neck. So be aware when taking money out of the ATM.

  36. Nicole

    Haul: 3 cheap mascaras (about 2€ each) and 3 every day shampoos, a chap stick and liquid soap.
    Weekend plans: Sleeping, look for a purple dress for a bbf wedding in April, reading and chatting with friends.
    When do you shower?: In the morning, because I don’t like leaving the house with unwashed and greasy hair.

  37. OMG! Mellan is sooooooooooo cute!!! I checked one of his older videos, and he keeps trying to “eat” the water when you turn on the shower..he is really adorable :D :D

    This is the first time I am seeing any of his videos. Have only noticed photos before, guess I missed the video posts :)

  38. Avatar of Terri Terri

    Hourglass ambient powder in radiant. Glinda palette. UD deluxe shadows in Honey and Ransom (on sale, thank God) as well as an el dorado eye liner. Then there was the year of the snake pearlmatte powder AND 2 thing from the Archie collection. Add that to the Gueralain stuff I got last weekend and there’s gonna be trouble with the hubs….oh well!! I am picking up an extra day at work so a girl has gotta reward herself sometimes! Oh and I also just last night ordered an RMK powder brush, along with some Rouge Bunny Rouge Stuff (my first time).
    OK, that is really bad. I am sinking into a shame spiral….will be eating boxed mac n cheese for the forseeable future. But at least I’ll look good doing it!! lol.

    Oh my gosh…..Mellan’s is SUCH a good dog. You are so lucky Christine! =)
