  5. Amy Amethyst

    Mellan is such a pretty boy!
    Haul- Nothing lately but I want the new e.l.f. villain palettes just because I think they are fun.
    Weekend-I’ve been riding with my bf who is a truck driver so I’ll be doing more of that.
    Movie-I really can’t remember! I think it was when I rewatched Iron Man 1 and 2.

  6. I had a bit of a haul lately to celebrate “School started and I haven’t killed anyone yet”, which to me is a perfect reason to buy some things :) Two LMdB lipsticks, Marc Jacobs Starlet palette, OCC Lip Tar in Memento, and my first Givenchy Le Rouge (in Rose Taffetas). Loving everything!

    Mellan is so cute!

  8. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Mar A. Mar

    Haul: REN Glycol Radiance Renewal Mask, Chloe See, Balenciaga Florabotanica, Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh. Still not certain about the Daisy, but a crazy good week! Saved up money for this haul.

    Weekend plans: Picking up my sister tomorrow and having her spend the weekend with me. Best part of the month!

    What was the last movie you saw?: I was sick and ended up going through The Avengers, Captain America and Thor on Netflix.

  9. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Lauren Lauren

    ■Haul: YSL Artsy Drive palette- I bought this on a whim. I was so concerned that it was a waste of money, but I’ve used it EVERY.single. day this week. It’s perfect for a daytime, easy, neutral “work appropriate” eye. This palette swatches terribly dry, but when I swatch them wet, they’re insanely metallic and glossy. It’s one of those, “works better in application” products. I’m actually glad I bought this because I’m really going to get a lot of use out of it.
    ■Weekend plans: I have a bachelorette on saturday night- going to get rowdy with some liquid eyeliner and my YSl palette
    ■What was the last movie you saw?: The Replacements!! love it! love keanu

  10. Haul: Nothing.

    Weekend plans: on Saturday I’m doing a table at a Comic/SciFi flea market in Toronto, dinner then off to Ikea.

    What was the last movie you saw?: Riddick

    • Have fun at the comic/sci flea market in Toronto! What exactly happens at one? I haven’t been to one or heard of any!

      • It’s like a general flea market/garage sale but content is based on media like comic books, novels, collectables, and costuming items. ;) Just think anything geek and it will be there.

        Here is the full descriptor:
        Sept 14th – SF/Anime Flea Market. Our annual Flea Market of genre merchandise. We’ll have books, DVDs, collectibles, games, costume supplies, comics, and more. Free admission. Held from 10 AM to 4 PM at the Beeton Auditorium, Toronto Reference Library, 789 Yonge Street.

  11. Aw… poor Mellan! He looks so sad!

    Haul: Hourglass Film Noir mascara, two of the new Armani Rouge Ecstasy lipsticks and one of YSL’s Fall lipsticks. Because a girl can never have enough lipsticks (not that I’m not trying)…
    Weekend plans: Going to a friend’s birthday party and doing some serious cleaning around the house!
    What was the last movie you saw?: You know what’s weird? I can’t even remember. I live with a film buff, so it seems like there’s constantly a movie playing and after a while they kind of blend together. I’m willing to bet it was something I wouldn’t have picked on my own, though :-P

  12. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Christina Christina

    Aww, Christine! Mellan is just too precious! The photos of him always start my Friday mornings off right!

    Haul: Some goodies from Beautyhabit’s recent sale (RBR, Japanese brands), Shu Uemura concealer and lipgloss, Lancome Dreamtone.
    Weekend Plans: working on the house remodel (feels never ending…)
    Last Movie I Saw: Epic…very cute!

  13. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Amy xamyx

    Haul: Not much… I’m waiting for the release of UD Vice 2, and Kat von D Spellbinding. I did manage to pick up NYX Center Stage, which is a collection of 6 Jumbo Eye Pencils, which include Milk & Black Bean. I went to Ulta to take advantage of the 20% off sale, and use cash in my bonus points that totaled $8, so it was a pretty good deal. I went in with the intention of picking up only those two, which (of course…) were out of stock, but on the way out I saw these. I also picked up a Real Techniques Stippling Brush.

    I also picked up a couple of Milani Liquif’Eye liners at the Dollar Tree; I heard Target is discontinuing the brand, and it may be discontinued altogether (due to some type of merger with NYX).

    Plans: Lunch at Souplantation tomorrow.

    Last Movie: The last movie I saw in a theatre was The Oogieloves (I have a 7-year-old).

    • Interesting – did not hear about Milani/NYX!

      • humm maybe not a bad thing, I like both brands and NYX has a larger distributor chain with Rexall and Target in Canada which means i don’t have to hunt for Milani as much if they take one the line of products. Canadian Target don’t have Milani we got NYX when they lunched in March here. ;)

        • Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Amy xamyx

          The “Beauty Concierge” at one Target told me about the merger, but I’ve tried finding info online, to no avail. It makes sense though, with the revamp of Jordana (which Milani does own), and the recent slew of Milani products at Dollar Tree these last few months. Also, local Target stores (SoCal), as well as several other large drugstores haven’t been restocking Milani for well over 6 months-a year…

  14. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Mary mary brenner

    I bought 7 (yes 7) bottles of nail polish. ….3 from a new revelon display I found at target and some Essie and OPI colors from their fall collections. I also bought some new lipsticks…..plums from the maybelline fall collection and some assorted reds to go with my red lip phase :). Im fighting myself NOT to buy the pumpkin spice shower gel at ulta………probably will lose that fight. I also bought pumpkin spice M&M’s AND pumpkin spice hershey kisses. Can you tell I love all things fall?

    Major miss for me make up wise. ……Bobbi brown. Just have lousy luck with her.

  15. Haul:
    Nothing. I’m saving my makeup karma for the UD Vice 2 palette. Money is tight until the end of the month, which is roughly when Sephora should have the palette in stock =D

    Weekend plans:
    Dinner with my in-laws tonight
    Pizza party with friends tomorrow.
    Work on a calligraphy commission. (For a tattoo! So scary and exciting.)
    Have my first real picture post on my blog. (A blog by me. What?! Haven’t had a real blog since my high school/college LiveJournal.)

    What was the last movie you saw?
    In a theater? Pacific Rim.
    At home? Rurouni Kenshin (the live action one)

    • It’s nice that the palette is delayed at Sephora – only because it means it buys you time since that stock won’t be up for sale yet – and plus, you can gauge how quickly it’ll see if it sold out at UD!

  16. Haul: OCC lip tar in Black Metal Dahlia (gorgeous!), Tarte Blush and Bronze On The Go, Gud body butter in Pearanormal Activity, Hello Kitty sale items from Sephora for a cousin’s birthday, Too Faced Natural at Night eyeshadow palette, Natural Kiss lip palette, and eye liner in Espresso, Maybelline polish in Vintage Violet, Hard Candy polish in Party Central, and Sally Hansen polish in Green Rocket.

    Plans: Visit the only Halloween store in my area to see if it’s open. They keep pushing back the date.

    Last Movie: Zoolander, about seven months ago. I was living in the maternity ward at the time and I refused to let the doctors and nurses distract me from it because I was fed up with being poked and prodded every hour.
    If you meant in the theaters… I have no idea. I know I saw one while pregnant, but I kept having to leave to go to the bathroom! :(

  17. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Barbie Barbie

    omg look at those eyes! aww he’s like pweaseeeee

    Haul; got my ipsy bag, my first bag from an indie subscription, picked some more milani hd advanced colors from the dollar tree, and mineral blush samples from someone on etsy!

    Weekend plans; homework!

    What was the last movie you saw; Wow, I think it was “Think Like a Man” it’s been awhile lol

  18. Smidge

    Not gonna lie… I thought that was snow on Mellan’s nose and suddenly got very worried that your neck of the woods was already seeing winter. D:

    • LOL! I live in California (Bay Area), and snow is not a word we use here. My parents live up a hill/mountain, and I think they’ve seen a dusting or sprinkling of snow that melts before it even hits the ground like… twice.

    Those puppy eyes…!

  20. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of artemis artemis

    He is sooo cuuute! <3

  21. Haul: Stila In the Light palette (I caved to the inevitable). I also picked up some OPI mini bottles of hand/body lotion (I like having the empties to refill and I finally wised up to buying all those MAC empty bottles!)

    Weekend plans: yoga tonight and/or tomorrow. Sunday, we have an unveiling (a Jewish tradition to mark the end of the first year of mourning; my childhood friend, with whom I’d sort of lost touch called me last month and it turns out her dad died last year and the unveiling is on Sunday so we’ll be going to that).

    • Did it again – forgot to answer the last question. Last movie was The Butler (went with my sis in law and mother in law on Monday)

    • Sorry to hear about your friend’s father!

      • It’s weird – she and I are the same age and grew up half a block from one another; her home was a “2nd home” for me as mine was for her and as neither of her parents drove (weird to think of these days), all the day trips she went on were with me and my mom and aunties. Now both my parents are gone and both her parents are gone and we’re “old women”, basically. It’s weird to have lost such key people from our lives. We had a wonderful time reminiscing yesterday about our growing-up years.

  22. Haul: I found a Cosmetics Company Outlet near me. It was like being a kid in a candy store. I got the Bobbi Brown Cool Party palette, Bobbi Brown cream shadow in Copper, and MAC pigment in Aurora. I will definitely be going back next week when they get their shipment in.

    Weekend Plans: Do all of the assignments for this week that ONE teacher assigned to us during our four week full time clinical. Not sure when he thinks we will have the time to do all of the projects by Tuesday when he just put them up yesterday.

    Last movie I saw: Star Trek: Into Darkness on DVD. Or City of Bones in the theater. I can’t believe how much they ruined City of Bones. It was worse than Twilight! They revealed all the secrets for the next three books/movies. And Valentine is supposed to be this clean cut guy, not someone who doesn’t look like he owns a shirt. And what was with the padawan braids and the creepy, random Vulcan mind-meld thing he did with Jace?!

    Christine my heart melted when I saw this picture of Mellan, you are so lucky to have such an amazing dog, I mean those eyes, so sweet.
    Haul: I had to buy some red lip products because I dyed my hair back to black, and I am an NC20, I was looking really washed out with my nudes, so I went out of my comfort zone and got:
    Mac Russian red and lust for life lipglass.
    Mac everyday diva mineralize rich lipstick.
    Mac kiss me quick pro longwear lip liner.
    Mac Antonio Lopez creative copper eyeshadow palette.
    Tarte amazonian clay blush in natural beauty.
    Urban decay perversion eyeliner.
    Mac mineralize skinfinish light plus
    Plans: same, chores and more chores.

  24. Haul: Urban Decay Vice 2 and Ocho Loco eye liners

    Weekend plans: Hip Hop vs Punk rock at a local bar tonight, and studying for nursing school the rest of the weekend

    What was the Last Movie I saw: watched Titan AE with my two kids

  25. Haul: Nada. I’ve been on a major buying freeze while I’m in the middle of meditating about my life and working on the bathroom remodel ;)

    Weekend plans: Going to see Insidious 2 tonight (happy Friday the 13th BTW!) and then maybe kayaking tomorrow – weather permitting.

    What was the last movie you saw?: I think it was probably the new Star Trek that just came out on DVD. I liked it… actually… WAY more than I had expected to. P.S. I LOVE Beautician and the Beast. It’s one of my “hate to admit I like” movies like Dirty Dancing and The Holiday (which I have seen 487 times I’m sure).

  26. OMG, Mellan, you are irresistibly lovable! I bet he has you wrapped around his paw. His eyes are so expressive; you just know what he’s thinking!

    Haul:
    Wayne Goss Brush Collection
    Makeup brush rolls that were 50% off at Sephora
    Tarte Gifts From The Lipstick Tree Achiote Color Collection (another Sephora blowout)

    Plans: Doctor visit. I have Shingles AGAIN! :( And sleep to escape the pain.

    • Last movie: Star Trek Into Darkness

    • On most things he does, but there are a few things he can’t sweet talk his way out of! ;)

      I hope you feel better soon!!

      • Thanks, Christine. Learned yesterday I have a MRSA infection. My health just seems to continue in this downward spiral. Can’t seem to get a break! :( For now, I’m nursing my nauseated stomach from these hard-core antibiotics.

        Does Mellan get to sleep in bed with you? Our cats get to do whatever they want. We are OWNED by these animals, especially Tupac.

        Definitely looking forward to getting my Goss Makeup Brush Collection.

        • At least they were able to give you a diagnosis – I hope you feel better soon, Melissa! Fingers crossed for you.

          He doesn’t! He has his own massive bed. It’s nice to sleep with him as a novelty, but it can be annoying all the time – he likes to wake you up early ;)

  27. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Ami Ami M.

    That is too funny about the movie. I just got it from the library to watch this weekend! I guess we have similar taste. :)

  28. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Sam Sam

    Haul: just the Vice 2 palette, and quite a few scent shots from Candles By Victoria :)

    Weekend Plans: probably going to the mall with my SIL. I have my eye on a new leather jacket for fall, and hopefully I can find one.

    Last movie I saw: Now You See Me!! my brother and I ordered it on-demand, and then went out and bought it the next day. It’s one of those films that’s fun to watch multiple times because you catch all of the details and hints they put into it. plus I’m a total sucker for Jesse Eisenberg and Dave Franco.

  29. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Veronica Veronica

    My dog wouldn’t have waited long enough to let you sit rice on his nose, LOL. He would have pretended to eat it, gone out of the room, and spat it on the floor because he only wanted what you had because you were eating it and now it’s a mistake in his mouth but he can’t let you know that because you might stop feeding him OMG. 9_9

    Haul: This was supposed to be small, but it wound up being pretty big this week due to some lucky finds. L’Oreal nail polish in So Chic!, L’Oreal lipgloss in The Queen’s Shine, L’Oreal Infallible eyeshadows in Primped and Precious and Blinged and Blanged (backup – I love that eyeshadow), Cargo Vintage Escape Kit from Ulta, which included full size eyeshadow in Yukon, Essential Lipcolor in Dubai, travel-size blush in Bali, primer, and 3-in-1 mascara, Bobbi Brown High Shimmer lipgloss in Bronzed Heather, and finally, Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick in Firecracker and cream eyeshadow in Metallic Taupe.

    When I picked up the Cargo set at Ulta, I discovered that they’d finally gotten Lipstick Queen products into the store and had a mini joygasm right there and then. That’s going to be a hard product stand to avoid before vacation. :P

    Weekend Plans: Hanging out with friends, reading, writing, CLEANING. Pretty much everything I’ve been putting off while working overtime all month.

    What’s the last movie you saw? In theatres, it was “The Butler.” At home, it was probably “Evolution.” (I not-so-secretly love that movie and its hilarious B-movie camp.)

  30. Haul: UD Naked! I finally got it! I also got Dior quint in Rosy Tan and Milani Shadow Eyez Pencil in Champagne Toast.

    Weekend plans: Math quiz I need to study for.

    Last movie you saw?: Thor.

    I literally went “Awww!” at the Mellan pic. Zoe would probably eat the rice before I had a chance to snap her photo. :P

    i ordered the sephora give me more lip on monday, received it today, it’s nice! a couple of full sized stuff other not, more lipstick than glosses which is good cos i don’t care for glosses.

    i went to mac yesterday to check out the retro matte collection, the color that i wanted to look at was too similar to party parrot so i passed.

    mac to mac embark eyeshadow, i wanted to mac to mac brownscript too since its matte squared, but “they didn’t have it in stock”, i wondered if she did that cos i was mac to macking it.

    i received a sample of ud catfight for my 100 pt perk from sephora, which is nice cos it’s one of the three ud new lipsticks that i want, that liar and anarchy. sample size should be enough for me since i don’t go through lipsticks fast, actually i practically never go through them.
