    I got some lotion and hand cream – nothing too exciting, but I bought myself the Clarisonic and I’m going to head to the Mall of America tomorrow (where Sephora and the Mac store are, in addition to no sales tax on clothes!) and have a little fun with Christmas money!

    Actually I had a great beauty christmas! From my best friend I got:

    MAC holiday brush set — eyes (although she ordered it from Macys and when i opened it there were no brushes in the bag!)

    MAC Passions of Red coral lips palette (already have this but she knew i wanted a backup)

    MAC Little Darlings Coral lipglass set (i wanted this but it was sold out on the website before i could get it! she’s the best!)

    Philosophy 3-in-1’s in: Vanilla Wafer, Spiced Apple Cider and Double Rich Hot Cocoa (she knows i love these — i now have 8 kinds of body wash in my shower!)

    From MAC: Splendid lipglass, Hot Frost lipglass, Frozen Dream lipglass and Passions of Red cool eyes palette (i passed on most of Dame Edna because i really already have colors that could dupe most of the collection, and the highlight powders i want to see in person first)

    Tutti Dolci Creme Brulee perfume (ebay — i have no idea why bath & body works would discontinue this line, best food scented products EVER!)

    and my mom donated 2 of her Chanel glossimers to me since she never uses them :) yaay!

  9. Kella

    My beauty loot included…

    The WHOLE holiday collection from MAC, from my lovely boyfriend… plus several non-holiday MAC items from him as well! Jaw-dropping……………

    And a MAC gift card.

    Then the Christmas presents I bought myself from MAC before Christmas…. which was a lot..

    I feel MASSIVE guilt over the amount of makeup I’ve bought myself and gotten from others. I’m going to try not to spend my Christmas MONEY on makeup…

  10. Creative

    I got from my mom the face brush set from MAC! My very first MAC items, I was very happy.

  11. Genevia Cameron

    I got some MAC products. Did I mention that I Love MAC? The color selection is perfect and I had a friend who works at the local Mac Store in Washington D.C. do a test of colors on me before the christmas holiday just to make sure that I got the right color tones for the new year. I plan on starting out looking like a new woman.

  12. Brittany

    $25 MAC gift card from my boyfriend! Not much, but luckily I got $100 from my grandparents 😉 I haven’t decided which things I want to buy yet though…Hopefully I’ll find some great purple, green, and blue eye shadows…

    • Jenny

      I love Miss Dior Cherie. Its my favorite perfume right now and the most amazing scent ever! Surprisingly enough, Soap and Glory’s body cream is like a deadringer for Miss Dior Cherie’s scent.

  14. PAOLA

    oooh and i bought myself the holiday brush set for eyes lol…i wanted the 239 brush…what a good deal

  15. Sheena

    My sister is the sweetest thing! She doesn’t have a car, so she couldn’t go out and buy me anything, but she made the cutest little “MAC gift certificate” for $75 of whatever MAC products I want, which will be very useful with all the collections coming up…I think I bought wayyy too many of the Little Darlings pigment sets (warm) lol. Also got Stila’s Gift of Shine lip glaze set, MAC paint pot in Groundwork, and a bunch of other stuff from before the holidays that I kind of told myself was my Christmas present to myself…that just kept getting bigger and bigger and bigger! :)

  16. cloudburst

    My mom was kind enough to pick me up the Beiges de Chanel e/s quad when she was in Vegas…I wanted it after reading the review on this blog & some of the FOTD’s. We didn’t get that in Canada, so I consider myself very lucky!

    I bought myself tons of makeup (that I kept telling myself was my Christmas gift to myself) – but the big things I got were 2 of Shu Uemura’s Mika Holiday Palettes. I love them!

  17. dee

    I got the Too Faced World Domination Tour palette and the Urban Decay Sustainable Shadow Box :)

  19. All of the gel liners from Coastal Scents, all of the palettes, a few makeup brushes from Coastal Scents, a bunch of MAC brushes (pretty much own every single one except for some angled shader brushes), a bunch of paint pots, little darlings glitter/pigments in warm and cool, lots of lipsticks/glosses, target brand makeup, EVERYTHING.

    I own friggin everything. o_o

  20. Chica

    Wow some of you had major cash spent on you!
    My best friend bought me the Too Faced Smokey Eye box which is really awesome, i’m no novice to smokey eyes as I wear them most days but the colours are really soft, easy to blend & if you were new to smokey eyes – the cards included are step by step guides so a really handy little kit :)
    My mam bought me the 2 Body Shop winter palettes which are lovely, much better quality than the one i bought last year which I hardly use. These two will be getting plenty of use!
    Hope all you guys had a fab Christmas!
