I got some stuff online. Like quite a lot:

– Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro in Ecstasy
– YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in Rose Dahlia
– Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Romance
– A couple of Maybelline Colorsensational Vivids
– Real Techniques stippling brush
– A couple of NYX Lip pencils

Yeah, a lot I know. 🙁

Just tonight I went to my local Ulta and picked up Urban Decay’s “Lovelight” lipstick and 4 Zoya polishes in “Holly,” “Ibiza,” “Jem,” and “Rica.” I remember stumbling on your review of “Holly” a while ago and absolutely fell in love with it, but the collection had come out quite a while ago so I thought we would never be united. I’m not much of a nail polish girl, but they were too beautiful to pass up.

The Dior and Chanel sales counters stared at me on the same day – and then spotted I a gorgeous Shisheido blush out of the corner of my eye. I so rarely get to a real store that I caved.

Picked up
– Le Blush Crème de Chanel in Inspiration (64),
– Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick in Rendez-vous,
– Les 4 Ombres Quadra in Raffinement
– Dior Shimmer Star Pressed Powder in Amber Diamond, and
– Shisheido’s luminizing satin color (blush) in Tea Petal.

No more for me this year.

Burberry Lip Cover Soft Satin Lipsticks (Bright Plum, Deep Burgundy, Devon Sunset), and Lip Glow Natural Lip Glosses (Brick Red, Bright Plum,Coral). My local Burberry boutiques don’t carry cosmetics, so I had to purchase them online. 🙁

I went a bit overboard this month on ebay, and picked up more than a few NARS duos I’ve either had my eye on for some time, or have been DCd. I also picked up a couple of NARS blushes & a single, and went a bit over budget. I justified it, though, because I paid far less than retail for everything, and no sales tax (we pay nearly 10% here in SoCal). I have Part 2 planned for September, which is mainly things I can buy at NARS.com, and and Part 3 in October, which is primarily newer releases & some items that are a bit out of my comfort zone. After that, I’m done until the Holidays, LOL!

I have really sppllluurrrged! I got a LOT

– Guerlain Terracotta 4 seasons bronzer
– Guerlain Lingerie de peau 03
– Chanel Liberte RCS
– Chanel Mystery lipgloss
– YSL touch eclat 03
– Lancome eyeliner
– Tarte F&F sale, blushes exposed, natural beauty, blissful, adored, dazzled, tipsy!

Just yesterday I bought some MAC stuff (not that much, though, with the Indulge collection coming up here in the UK): Paintpot Painterly, lipstick Mehr and Mineralize lipstick Grande Dame.

Last weekend I picked up the Laura Mercier illuminator in Spellbound and an Urban Decay lipstick in Naked. The highlighter is beautiful and the lipstick is just what I was looking for-longlasting and super moisturizing on my middle-aged lips.

“Splurge” to me suggests either really pricey, so that would be the Guerlain Les Fumes eye shadow quad, OR really unnecessary and that would probably be the Stila In the Garden palette. Don’t get me wrong – I absolutely LOVE this palette but it wasn’t something I needed in any way, shape or form (mind you, that probably applies to 90% of the makeup I’ve bought this year).

I got 5 of the new Armani ETK eyeshadows (only skipped Silver Chafer). I am so happy with my purchase!!! As I’ve said here before, unlike most other people I didn’t like the previous shades at all, the texture didn’t appeal to me (kinda chunky/gritty), but these new ones are pure heaven. Buttery and smooth and they are definitely a lot more finely milled. I loved Rose Popillia so much that I wanted to get a backup, but unfortunately that was the first one to sell out at Nordstrom.
