  1. i’m trying to control myself untill after Christmas (Macy’s gift cards galore!), so the last thing i bought was the MAC holiday lips in coral. such cute packaging, i couldn’t resist.

    wait, no, i lie. i bought a lipglass lip pencil in Coral Craze, too :)

    • Good luck, Courtney! You can do it!

    • victoria

      i agree, this year’s packaging was so pretty, so much better than last years, i just kept staring at it when i got it. i got the lip palette and the lipstick set because they are sooo beautiful. i don’t think i can do the back to mac thing.

    I’m taking a break from MAC, Clarins and Urban Decay and focusing on other brands. Here’s what I got:

    Smashbox:
    Softlights in Smashing Lens, Tint and Shimmer (highlighters that work very well for cheeks and eyes)
    Powder brush #1 (one more isn’t going to kill me – and it’s by far the best powder brush I have ever used!)
    Lipstick in Resolution (brownish red)

    Stila:
    Convertible Color in Rose, Petunia and Peony (brilliant stuff)
    Smudge Pot in Jade (I prefer this to MAC f/l – seriously)

    Bobbi Brown:
    Gel Liner in Bronze Shimmer (I don’t really need this but couldn’t stop myself)
    Blush Spice (lovely shade for tan skin)

    Maybelline:
    Age Rewind Cream Foundation (Holy Grail material btw – the “Age Rewind” part is nonsense)
    Superstay lipstick in Cabernet (dark wine – long lasting, non drying)

    That’s going to be it for December. Unless there’s yet another sale……

  10. What a great blog! I think i’d like to have you as a guest writer on our blog (Life. Styled. – http://www.kanemarie.com/blog). How do i get in contact with you?

  11. hannika

    Mellow Flame l/s…I bought one and liked it so much I went and got a back up the next day.

    Metal X Metalblue

    Ladyblush

    Mac of Beauty in Tenderdusk

    Steamy e/s

    I got steamy and one Mellow Flame as my B2M free things and Im so glad I did, they were not something I would have bought for myself normally but because they were free I went for it. I think they are now two of my favorite products! And my store was all sold out of the Metal X stuff so I was only able to get one, which was sad and good all at the same time!

  13. Kristen

    I’ve asked for several gift cards for Christmas to get some makeup, but I went ahead and got two of the Royal Assetts eyeshadow compacts. I got the Cool Eyes and Metallic Eyes. I also got SPF 15 Tinted Lip Conditioner in Gentle Coral to wear to class.

    i think i’m the only one here that still doesn’t know how to use the pigments. i’m so worried i might get the colors everywhere then on my lid. i wanted to try the holiday pigments for a start but they were all sold out. yes obviously i’m the only one that doesn’t know how to use them. but that’s okay, looking forward to the next collection.

    • Try asking for a small pigment sample next time you go in to purchase items. Some MA’s will oblige this request. Its a great way to try it out to see if you like it. I used to despise any kind of loose e/s until I figured out how to apply it properly! :)

      • victoria

        i have never purchased pigments before. please tell me what’s so great about pigments compared to normal e/s. i noticed a lot of makeup artist love pigments more than regular e/s. i mean they aren’t cheap and they’re willing to buy a whole jar, a whole lot of jars, must be really great. if they are really great to try, what color would you recommend to try first?

        • victoria

          oh i forgot, how rude of me. thank you so much for the tip. i hadn’t thought of asking for a sample before.

        • Pigments are more versatile, and the pay off of them are pretty much great all around. You can’t go wrong with any of them, so pick a color you’d wear a lot :)

    • Hey Victoria! How are you liking Uppity?

      I agree with Ariele — ask for a sample next time you’re in the store!

      • victoria

        oh i looove uppity. actually i wish they would come up with more bright metallic fluidlines. i love the colors from liquidlast like the blue herizon but taking them off was a bit of a hassle. i love uppity because it’s multi purpose and it’s just a great collection. i love limited ed. i feel so lucky.

  15. Anna

    I haven’t had a “haul” in a while, but the last things I bought were Sweet Sienna pigment and the Viva Glam Warm lip palette.

  18. kat

    Unfortunately, the holiday stuff did not wow me this year. I only picked up the holiday plushglass set.

    But I did buy a lot of ebay that has Saddle, Barbie whistle, corduroy, pink venus (I already own this one though), naked lunch, nocturnelle, and full flame eyeshadow, Pastorale pigment, naked tip nail polish, sophisticated brow set (I have red hair so I think it’ll be too light…), and a buncha full size eye brushes. But I can’t comment on them because I haven’t received them yet D:
