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. πŸ™‚

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˜‰

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

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.

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!!

Ohh, you’ll have to tell me what your FF haul was when it arrives! I’m waiting on mine, too πŸ™

Nice haul at the CCO! Who doesn’t love a CCO haul?

Cosmetic Company Outlet – it’s an outlet store found at outlet malls and it carries several Estee Lauder brands, including MAC, at a slight discount (they have random products, not a full range).

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! πŸ™‚

Ohh, but Finery is gorgeous! I love all of the lip sets, though the Tan lip one is my least favorite.

Very nice haul πŸ˜€ Be sure to let us know how it all works out!

from mac;
– accentuate shaping powder
– bone beige sculpting powder
– pink lips finery

– mixing medium

from nars:
-crazed blush
– hellfire lip lacquer
-chelsea girls lip lacquer

from chanel:

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

Pharaoh and Otherworldly paint pots
Feline and Jealous eye kohl power pencil

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

Profile photo of Christine

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!

Christine,

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!

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˜€
