Cinderella eyeshadow palette! I actually didn’t even look at any of the products because Sephora shadows have such a bad rep with me, until I saw your review! Thank you Christine <3

I didn’t get my order yet but the makeup academy undressed palette because it’s a perfect dupe for the naked palette

Aaaa I so want that palette but I’m not through Naked yet. It is such a better option, really (well, I like buck for my eyebrows, but it’s not a dealbreaker to not have that sort of matte really. There are plenty of brow products!)

The LORAC Pro Palette! I am always skeptical when something is SO hyped up, but I can honestly say that thing is 95% worth the hype (that extra 5% is knocked off for a couple of the shadows that are just the slightest bit powdery, but definitely not a deal breaker, obviously).

UD Vice palette.

Because more Urban Decay eyeshadow. (I decided I really don’t like the brush, though. But that did not add or detract to the wanting of the palette.)

@#$%! eyeshadow. I have a strange love of red eyeshadows – so ready to figure out some perfect combinations for it, especially with the holidays coming up (oooh mixing it with silver…) I just wish it had turned up before halloween for a perfect red/black smokey eye.

Ooh that’s easy :). I ordered two of the new Burberry quads and I cannot wait to get them. I’ve been hoping they would launch some form of a palette at some point, so when I heard about these (early summer), I couldn’t wait to see them. Now that they are available, i just wish the SA I placed the order with last week would hurry up and give me the tracking number… Burberry is my favorite makeup brand, so it’s really exciting to have brand new products and the quads look amazing.

Tarina Tarantino Spark of Envy eyeliner. It is exciting BECAUSE IT IS SITTING IN MY DRAWER TORMENTING ME WITH IT’S BEAUTIFULNESS. As soon as I have an actual day where I can sit down and do more than the absolute basics, I’m going to use it in a look.

It’s the new Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil!

While the color selection of three is quite limited, if you can find a color match, it gives SO much product for the price paid! I know that Christine came out with the Excel download price lists, and I’m sure that many of you saw that one of the most popular eyebrow pencils–the MAC Eye Brow, is $15 for 0.003 oz; that’s $5000/oz! While the Hourglass product is $32 for 0.014 oz; that’s $2286/oz, not to mention that since you can get it at Sephora, the annual 20% discount can be applied, cutting the price down to $1829/oz!

In terms of texture, it’s slightly harder, waxier, and therefore slightly less opaque than the MAC Eye Brow. I have the shade Dark Brunette, and it’s slightly darker than what I use in the MAC Eye Brow line, Spiked. But it works since it’s less opaque.

I’m absolutely thrilled that Hourglass came out with this product, and did not follow the industry standard of using very thin automatic pencils that contain very little product.

The only similar product in the entire market is the Tom Ford Brow Sculptor, which contains less product and is more expensive. According to one of my good friends on Youtube, Ms. RAEview, she claims that the Hourglass product is creamier and MORE opaque. She still prefers the Tom Ford one though, which for her, also lasts longer.

I hope this helps some people! πŸ˜‰

Bare Escentuals’ The Star Treatment palette. It’s my first purchase of their pressed shadows and the formula is so amazing but the palette itself has such lovely colours that I’ll wear all year ’round.

Nails Inc Graffiti polish in Camden Lock – it’s so exciting to look at your nails when you’re wearing this polish! I’d highly recommend the whole range, just so fun to have so much glitter on πŸ™‚

I just purchased Burberry’s Bright Poppy (No. 311) and am so excited to wear it! I’ve made a bunch of lifestyle changes and lost 22 pounds and feel so much more confident so I figured a beautiful lipstick that was outside of my comfort zone was in order.

My most recent purchase was one of my birthday presents πŸ™‚ the Rouge Volupte 9 Caress Pink from Ysl, which has become one of my everyday shades. I was really excited because IΒ΄m entirely new to the brand and had seen the packaging of the Rouge Voluptes on the Internet and had fallen in love with it. I was really impressed by Ysl and really liked all the products I saw. When I went to swatch the R Voluptes, everyone including the really nice SA agreed that Caress Pink was my shade. I even got a faux cills mini mascara with puchase, a rare present here since they only give you perfume samples, which I also got, Parisienne is a really nice perfume. I have received numerous remarks, all telling me that this shade Caress Pink is my shade, even from people that are against makeup in general! This has become my favorite lipstick, and Ysl started really well with me, I look forward to expand my Ysl collection in the near future πŸ˜€ .

That a loaded question after IMATS.

I’m excited for the Temptu Dura products I picked up but I’m not touching those till the spring to preserve them for summer use.

I also excited to try out the eyelash dye and developer I picked up for $16.50 total at the show (they added tax). I seriously only wear mascara to add color to my still blonde lashes.

My Giorgio Armani ETK eyeshadow in #14. I stumbled upon it completely by chance (wasn’t it suppose to be sold out months ago?), so it is quite exciting in itself, but most importantly, it looks truly amazing on. It wears like iron, too. My Chanel Eyeshadow duo in Sable Emouvant is a close second, and it wasn’t planned either (which is very unlike me). It’s just well-executed, and SO flattering on me. But I don’t regret buying those two products at all, they are excellent; I actually have to refrain myself from wearing them everyday! (although I have the Chanel duo on my lids right now, eh)

My honey went out of his way so I could have the Marilyn Monroe Lipstick I wanted, he looked and looked and just when I thought he had given up, he actually bought one off amazon, even with the super high price. I really wanted that shade of lipstick, and the fact that he knew how much it meant to me, well that made the product just the more special πŸ™‚ I just sometimes can’t believe the things this man does for me… <3

Make Up For Ever Pure Pigment in #16, blue. Wet, it’s the perfect cobalt color (which I’ve been hunting for), dark but bright.
