    I hauled yesterday at Nordstrom:

    MAC Smokey Eyes
    MAC Warm Eyes
    MAC Metallic Eyes
    MAC Keepsake
    Chanel Rouge Double IntensitÉ Ultra Wear Lip Colour in Rose Pearl
    Prada Infusion D’Iris Parfum

    I didn’t really care for the MAC Cool Eyes, because it didn’t seem terribly unique, and because I don’t love pink on my eyes.

    I wanted to buy all of the extra Infusion D’Iris stuff (bath gel, lotion, candle) but I thought paying the mortgage would be a good idea. :)

    • Nice haul, Jen!! How do you like Keepsake? I passed because I have or have had all of the products in it. Glamoursun is one of my fave lipglasses.

      Cool eyes is super pretty, but yes, if you’re not a fan of pink shadow, so passable.

      Hm, mortgage, could be a good idea πŸ˜‰

      • Jen

        Glamoursun is the reason I bought it – I didn’t have it from before. I also have been toying with buying Sunbasque, anyway, and the pigment is pretty. So, all in all, not a bad kit. I am lukewarm about the glitter pencils, and I really don’t care for the bag at all – but I’ll give that to my daughter.

    On last friday my mother bought me the following MAC stuff: Violet Pigment,Gently off eye and lip makeup remover andliquidlast liner in fuchsia-ism. :-DDD
    i also asked for the water based mixing medium,but unfortunately the nearest MAC pro store is in Paris :-DDD so I will make my own,1part glicerin,3 parts water. Thanks for the insider info Christine :-DDD

    • Zsofi

      oh ,and i love love love all of them. this remover is the only i know to remove the liquidlast liner πŸ˜€
      pigments are always gorgeous,nothing more to say.
      i also flirted with the matte collection,they are really gorgeous.

    • Ohh, really nice haul, Zsofi! I hope the homemade version works out for you :)

      • Heather

        Does anyone know where to buy Glycerin? I really want to make my own mixing medium but when I go to the store and ask for Glycerin, noone knows what / where it is. Also, how much is it?? Thank you!!!

    I just put in a big order at Sephora.com for the FF sale, but since it hasn’t arrived yet it’s technically not a haul! So my last haul was at the MAC CCO and I bought:
    -Porcelain Pink MSF
    -Pandamonium eyeshadow quad
    -Corps de Coleur eyeshadow quad
    -Sweetie Cakes eyeshadow quad
    -Gently Off make-up remover

    I loved absolutely everything!!

    I had a major haul at the MAC store last weekend. The nearest MAC is two hours away, so I usually buy a lot at once. Here’s what I got:

    Smokey eyes palette
    Coral lips palette
    Silversmith MES
    Belightful Iridescent Pressed powder
    Mascara X in black
    Eye brush set
    129 long handle brush
    Corduroy shadow
    Expensive pink shadow
    Orb shadow (love!)
    Woodwinked shadow (rumors it is DC, so got it while I could)

    I wanted Bare Study paint pot, but I totally forgot…so I will get it with my next haul, probably when Stylistics comes out.

    They had the lip bags out and now I also totally want the Pink set…I think my husband is getting a little annoyed though! :)

    • zoe

      i love everything im so happy this was my weekend in london haul

    • I’m happy you loved everything, Zoe! Nothing beats that :) Are you a NARS Lip Lacquer fan? Tell me more about those!

      • zoe

        I really love lip lacquers because like most nars products they are so buildable. I find them really versatile i can either use them lightly with a lipstick and lip liner or by themselves because they are really easy to top up during th day. So far My favorite lip lacquer is chelsea girls , i have finally found the perfect lip product to go wwith smokey eyes, its gorgeous. However my favorite item from this haul is crazed it is so amazing. But i love my sculpting/shaping powders and the rest to bits too. But im hauling again on thursday smller this time thought or at least i hope it will be

  6. Tekoa

    Hmmm…lets see…

    The only things I may not love, oddly enough, is the kohl pencils. Love the colors, but they may be a tad too smudgy for me. But they’re so pretty I don’t care!

    Holiday Lipsticks in starry dream and red desire

    Feather Shimmer Brush
    Glitter Spray
    Fekkai Highlights Mascara in gold

    And… more to come soon! I love saving my gift cards for the holidays πŸ˜€

    • Zsofi

      Hi Adina!
      warm and cool pigment set: this sounds very interesting. how many pigments are exactly in those sets ? πŸ˜€

    • Wow, Adina! I am jealous! Tell me how Guerlain’s Forever Gold Radiant Powder & Meteorites are? Also the Givenchy Diamond Dust! These are some lemmings, so I’d love to hear what you think!

      • Adina


        How do I love the guerlain products, let me count the ways. In all seriousness the radiant powder is amazing. The packaging is jaw dropping gorgeous and the product itself deposits a beautiful glittery shimmer wherever you put it. And the smell is so nice, it is a soft musky scent that justified me purchasing it because of its versatility as a cosmetic product and as a fragrance product. The gold meteorites deposit an awesome beige/gold/peach which looks divine with a dramatic lip and soft gold toned eye.

        The diamond dust is awesome too, so different than the gold tones of guerlain. The diamond dust gives off a beautiful silver glimmer wherever you put it. It makes a great shimmery highlight!

        Zsofi- the pigment sets include 4 mini pigments and one mini reflects glitter. They look promising!

        • Zsofi

          hmmm…. Mini pigments…. if only they would sell it in Hungary! maybe i try to get them in Vienna.
          Paris is too far for me right now πŸ˜€
          the old pigment sizes seem to be way too big for me. it is an investment for the 3-4 generations coming πŸ˜€ how lucky they are:grandma (me) purchased it for them,way back in 2007 πŸ˜€

        • You are definitely tempting me, Adina! Thank you for your review!
