Free for Haul Friday, Volume #088

Welcome to Free For Haul Friday!

  • Haul:  Let’s see, this week I picked up a mega bottle of Kiehl’s Creme de Corps, because I had a few friends recommend it (I’ve never tried), and with Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale going, I couldn’t pass up the lifetime supply of the stuff.  I figure if it doesn’t work out, my mom will be happy to take it off my hands (she’s a body cream junkie).  I also received my NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Primer and sharpener.
  • Weekend plans:  I’m crossing my fingers for a mellow weekend, actually!  Last weekend, we entertained my boyfriend’s’ family at our place and then for the 4th, I went up to my parents’ house for the day.  Maybe cuddling with Mellan and a movie 🙂
  • Beauty item you really want right now:  Cle de Peau Foundation/Concealer – I want to see if it lives up to the hype, but I’m not ready to spring for either yet.

Share your pet photos to the Temptalia Pets flickr group! 🙂

This week’s Mellan photo…


This was how I spent my 4th — throwing the frisbee 2134987234 times for Mellan!

Haul: The only makeup related thing I purchased was powder puffs and sponges.

Weekend plans: Going to a Beatles tribute band tonight, going possibly to a Beach Boys tribute band tomorrow and Disneyland for sure, and heading to the Getty on Sunday.

Beauty Item I want right now: Nothing really, I should get a new Deslick Oil Control Makeup setting Spray and Zero before UD’s FF sale ends though.

Krista Avatar

Haul: Going to MAC to buy yet another paint pot or two and a lighter MSFN.
Weekend Plans: Meeting up with friends tomorrow and will celebrate my brother’s birthday on Sunday
What I REALLY want right now: More paint pots. I know a lot of people think they dry out too much but I’m really loving it since it stays on forever!

Dawn Avatar

My MAC goodies arrived today!

From Fashion Flower I got Light Sunshine Beauty Powder, Groundcover eyeshadow, Summer Shower and Ever Hip lipsticks and my first ever lip gelée – Budding Beauty. I was pleasantly surprised at just how big this is!

From Semi-Precious, I got the 234 brush, Gem of Roses and Geo Pink, Rare Find, Golden Gaze, Hint of Sapphire and Clarity.

Also this week I got a backup of Thrills lipstick from the To The Beach collection, Sleek’s New Skin Revive foundation in Shell, and Sleek Pout Polish in Bonaire, from their new Caribbean Collection.

I’m hoping for a quiet weekend, but no doubt my parents will come over and want us all to go out somewhere.

The beauty item I most want right now is some new Paint Pots from MAC in pretty colours. I hear rumours that there are some in the pipeline, along with new Fluidlines.

Haul: MUFE aqua cream shadow #17.
Weekend plans: work 🙁
Makeup item I really want: tarte true blood palette. I’ve never seen true blood a day in my life but the colors look incredible!

emi s. Avatar

I got two packaged in the mail yesterday – mac see sheer lipstick, and an inglot 5-pan palette w/ 5 eyeshadows. I chose 5 mattes – an off-white highlight, 3 taupes, and a dark purple for lining.

Thank you Christine so much for the Inglot swatches! I’m so happy with the shades I ended up with 🙂

Joyce Avatar

Haul: Urban Decay Jackpot eyeliner set, Mildew eyeliner, and Naked lipstick. Tarte Glamour Me palette, Amazonian Clay blushes in Amused, Blissful, Exposed, and Tipsy. Josie Maran My Favorite Powders palette, Argan Oil lipsticks in Sole Love, Luscious, and Curvaceous. This is the most I’ve bought in MONTHS! lol xP

Weekend plans: Hanging out with my husband and his brother tonight, poker night at a friend’s house tomorrow night, and….yeah. Nothing big this weekend! Last weekend was SO CRAZY filled with family time which I loved, but we can’t do that every weekend 🙁

Beauty item you really want right now: I want to get my feet wet in MAC’s permanent lipstick and eyeshadow range, but who knows when I’ll actually take the plunge. They’re like gateway products!!

Lauren Avatar

Go for the Cle de Peau! Those two items were life changing for me – seriously! The cost is kind of crazy though, but I’ve been using both the concealer and foundation since April and barely made a dent in them

Chris25 Avatar

Haul: Mary Kay Amber Blaze, Cinnabar, Sienna & Almond shadows, NARS Cordura duo, NYX Dune & Guru trios, a bunch of NYX lip liners, and NYC Cream Blush Stick in Urban Spice.

Weekend Plans: sewing up some sheets to make a background for photo shoots. Photo shoot on Sunday (I am on a roll with these shoots!).

Beauty item you really want right now: Dior Quint in Stylish Move, and I would love to try more Lakme products and Bassam Fattouh products. I can get a few Lakme items online, but the majority of the line is only available in India, and I don’t think BF products are sold online at all (at least for now).

Joanna Avatar

HAUL: Semi Precious… Rose Quartz msf; Gem of Roses and One of a Kind lipsticks; 128, 234 and 235 brushes.

I wasn’t overly impressed with the eyeshadows, but I was going to check out Rare Find. When I got to the store, it was missing from the display, so I took it as a sign that I wasn’t meant to have that eyeshadow.

WEEKEND PLANS: Getting my hair cut and coloured tomorrow and lunch with my mom. Was planning on painting the fence, but it’s going to rain all weekend!

BEAUTY ITEM: I’m really wanting to get my hands on some of MAC’s limited edition purple eyeshadows.

Dana Avatar

Haul – not much really, just John Frieda’s 3 day Straight Spray, haven’t tried yet but hoping it will get me through to my next Brazillian treatment. I have high hopes but low actual expectations hahaha!

Weekend Plans – going to the outlets tomorrow to get a bday present for my Mom (Coach wallet maybe?) And of course I will stop into the CCO there and hopefully haul some goodies to report on next week.

Beauty Product I want right now – nothing really comes to mind. My face has been breaking out like crazy this past week so I would really like some miracle cream to clear it up. 😀

Leslie Avatar

Haul: I’ve heard wonderful things about Dior’s Hydralife Skin Tint and I need a new tinted moisturizer/foundation after I tried Mac’s Mineralize Satinfinish foundation which made me break out like mad!

P.S. I love that when you review items, you mention how it looks specifically on your skin tone. I’m A NC25/30 as well!

Melissa Avatar

Haul: Essie It’s Genius…sadly that’s it cuz I’m still waiting on my Chanel Peridot and Chanel Graphite to be delivered….

Weekend plans: Hanging out with the baby boy at the pool and trying out some new summery recipes!

Beauty item you really want right now: Bare Escentuals Prime Time Primer Shadow in Urban Decay.

Brenda Avatar

Haul: my first MUFE products: 2 aqua creams, a HD blush, and an eyeliner pencil!
Weekend plans: preparing to go on holiday (south of France)
Beauty item you really want right now: more MUFE eye pencils!!!

Brian aka Roulette Avatar

OMG Christine you will love Creme du Corps!! It will make any dragon scales turn into silky skin in no time. It’s heavy with out being greasy. It really does deep moisturize. It worked wonders for my legs and body. My only tip is to apply it right out of the shower, when you skin is damp it will spread out better and you will use less product, and let it soak in for a bit if you can before you get dressed. Have a great weekend and keep up the good work. PS Im still waiting for the second batch of Jealousy Wakes to show up on the website…*sigh

stravs Avatar

i LOVE the creme de corps, but i use the one with SPF 30. living at high altitude, i need sunscreen every day, and this is the only body lotion i’ve found that moisturizes enough, provides decent sun protection, and smells good — kinda like coconut! i suppose that’s sort of a sunscreen-y smell, but it’s light and i actually really like it. i WISH they made it in a gigantic bottle!

Brooke Avatar

My haul was from Sephora, MAC, and Ulta. From Sephora I got Benefit’s Eye Gotta! The Annie Collection and the Clinique the 3-step Skin Care set for oily skin. From MAC I got the MSF in Semi-Precious Rose Quartz, lipstick in Gem of Roses, and e/s in Parisian Skies. From Ulta, I picked up a pack of Yes to Cucumbers facial wipes, waterproof One by One mascara, Real Techniques starter set, travel essentials, blush brush, shading eye brush.

I love the brushes and the MAC lipstick and MSF, I am soo happy that I got them!

Ana G. Avatar

Haul: Just bought Shroom eyeshadow and Pro Longwear concealer.

Weekend plans: Since it will be raining, staying home with my husband and son, playing games and preparing his 3rd birthday party (3, already?!?)

Beauty item you really want right now: gem of roses lipstick!!

Marina Avatar

Haul: Nothing…I’m about to place a tiny MAC order for Gem of Roses l/s and Evolution Revolution l/g but they won’t come back in stock! I’m getting so annoyed! (Sorry, Christine, I’d get Jealousy Wakes but I’m 13 and I don’t think I’d wear it enough to justify buying it. 1 item from MAC is a month’s allowance…It doesn’t pay to be a makeup obsessed teenager)

Weekend Plans: Hanging with my parents and grandparents, going to the beach, working on family travel Shutterfly albums (which somehow got to be my job…..)

Beauty Item I REALLY want right now: NAKED Palette. I said I wouldn’t give into the hype, but now there’s no way I’m not giving in. It’s gorgeous. If I make some money of those Shutterfly albums, maybe I’ll get the chance to purchase it…UGH. If only it was in their FF sale…

Sorry for the rant! 🙂

Mariella Avatar

Marina, I got the Naked palette when it first came out and, believe me, it’s not “hype” at all. The colours are gorgeous and it is also a great value to boot. Most of the shadows do have some shimmer, though, so if you don’t like that, you may want to rethink the palette. And one of my fave shades – Sidecar – has lots of glitter fallout, which is a shame.

meme Avatar

It’s great and you NEED it! I happened on it when the very first edition was released – total luck. Then I realized how lucky I was as it came in, and sold out same day from UD and Sephora over and over again until they switched to putting the shadow brush in it vs. the liner pencil that was in it originally. I honestly have though of buying a back up for it but I doubt I will ever get through using the one I have – but those shades that are exclusive to it of course are the ones I reach for 9 times out of 10!!! Thus maybe the need to get a back up!

Gabby T Avatar

Haul: My Chanel Graphite just arrived!!!
Weekend plans: Pilates class Saturday, long run Sunday and curl up with my kitties and the hubs in between!
BI I want right now – Chanel Prelude Quad and Khaki Platine Eye Pencil

meme Avatar

Yeah! And do you have plans to put the Graphite on this weekend? Fingers or toes? I adore mine and happy I spent the $ for it.

Jamie Avatar

My boyfriend is in boston, so he surprised me and went looking until he found one. I also picked up Mac’s Golden Refined and did back to mac for crosswire lipstick. I also picked up Urban Decay’s Naked palette. It’s my new favorite palette.

Weekend: Meeting a friend for sushi tonight with kids in tow. My toddler is looking forward to his first sushi! Inlaws are coming to visit on Sunday.

Beauty item I’m lemming: Chanel Rose Ecrin blush. I know I shouldn’t, but… Please someone, talk me out of it!

Leslie Avatar

Haul: I was terrible this week. From MAC I got Warmth of Coral and Pressed Amber blushes, Gem of Roses lipstick, Geo Pink lipglass, and the 234 & 235 brushes. The 235 is nice but I’m not quite sure what to do with the 234…it’s oddly shaped. From Urban Decay’s F&F sale, I got Sin eyeshadow pencil, Bang afterglow cheek tint, and Eden primer potion. Aaaaand from Tarte’s F&F sale, I picked up two Amazonian clay blushes in Amused and Tipsy, and the Amazonian clay powder.

Weekend plans: It’s my birthday on Sunday! So tonight the BF and I are throwing a party, on Saturday we’re celebrating with a friend of mine in Baltimore who’s birthday is the day after mine, and on Sunday I’m having dinner with family.

Beauty Item I Want: Something…ANYTHING that will control my oil! It’s driving me absolutely insane because absolutely nothing helps longer than an hour. My eye is currently on Skindinavia’s No More Shine spray, but I’m sure after I try that and it fails to work, I’ll be onto something else.

Caroline Avatar

Haul: I had a 2 month “no buy” policy and this week I finally got some stuff I have been eyeing. I got Clinique’s LE gradient blush in Black Honey and the duo lipgloss/lipstick of the same name.

Beauty Item I Really want right now: two things, new makeup brushes and Too Faced Matte Eye Palette.

Rita Avatar

Mariella Avatar

Okay, you are all my witnesses; I am putting myself on a self-imposed makeup buying moratorium til the end of summer! It’s getting ridiculous the amount of stuff I have and I never use up anything that isn’t skincare! This week, I bought MAC Steamy (love it to bits), Bows and Curtsies from Fashion Flower (the counter was sold out when it launched but MAC had it on the website still so I got it) and also, from Semi-Precious, Golden Gaze, which I love. I had planned to get Dark Indulgence as well but I was smart – I took my 3 similar shadows with me to the counter and it’s virtually identical to TheBalm’s Jealous Jordana and to Bows and Curtsies. I also took Gilt by Association to compare to Golden Gaze and GG is must less glittery, which is why I got it. WHEW!!

Weekend plans: more work on our shade garden, which is looking nice already; inviting MIL over for dinner

Beauty Item I want right now: those Bare Escentuals cream eyeshadows (especially Urban Nature); Sephora’s “glitter brush” to see if it actually helps keep Maui Wowie et al OFF MY CHEEKS.

Mariella Avatar

Sigh….I know, and with all these new releases, it is just so hard to resist! If I weren’t so hooked on your blog, Christine, I wouldn’t know about all this great stuff coming up. Maybe I have to stop coming here! (just kidding).

Annie Avatar

Tomorrow is the launch of Semi-precious Collection in The Netherlands 😀 I have already reserved all items and will go to test if they are worth to buy 🙂 The staff there are always very excited with your reviews as I recommended you across all boutiques xD

I was desperately missing makeup after a week of camping in Yosemite and Tahoe so I went crazy on Semi Precious. Goldstone and Rose Quartz MSF, Feeling Flush Blush, Gem of Roses, One of a Kind& Lush Amber Lipsticks. Got Geo pink gloss but i think I’m taking it back. I keep reading about how little product is in there and as soon as I took it home I realized it wasn’t worth it. Gonna go back for either Warmth of Coral or Pressed Amber. LOVE LOVE LOVE the MSFs tho, my MUA makes me want whatever she’s wearing even if I go in dead set on not getting it. She’s bad for my wallet 🙂

Beauty items: just some stuff from bath and body works- their true blue spa line is amazing. And since it was buy 2 get one free and I had a coupon for another free item- I couldn’t resist. I also plan on getting some Milani and some eyeshadows either this weekend or next. My debit card got mad at me- so my bank put a hold on my account , for fraud protection.

Weekend plans: studying, job hunting

What I want: it’s more like what I need – I am in need of some concealer
