Haul: Mad Minerals. I’m loving the mineral eye shadow these days!

Weekend plans: Family dinner and working around the house.

Favourite TV shows: Mad Men, Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, pretty much anything on AMC, Greys Anatomy, and Game Of Thrones.

Duochromes are my kryptonite and I grabbed some pretty awesome ones…Whisper Opal, 7200, Chocolate Mint, Chocolate Grape, and Emerald Green to name a few.
For $3.00 you can order mystery colours, from small batches of colour formulations that didn’t make it into regular production, and I ordered 3 of them. I got a shimmery light taupe, a dusty rose that makes an excellent blush, and a greyed teal that turns iridescent green when applied wet. Can you say score??!! I think that teal surprise colour might be my favourite of the bunch!!
I also got a couple of cream eyeshadows. These are supposed to be comparable to paint pots, and they tell you which ones have MAC dupes. They are smaller, like the size of most gel eyeliners, but a tiny bit goes a long way, and stays put all day. I got Forest Green and Waltz and it was hard not to order every colour they had. They have a great selection of wearable colours. I had been eyeing their site for a while and I’m glad I finally took the plunge!

Haul: not much as I kept striking out. I wanted to at least see (and no doubt BUY) the new Laura Mercier Artist’s Palette but Sephora didn’t have it (yet…). So I figured I would look at the Lorac Pro Palette and to my amazement, the Sephora I was at doesn’t have Lorac at all. So I figured I’d take a look at Nars Melusine. Well, they didn’t have that either! Then I went to MAC to get Constructivist Paint Pot – SOLD OUT!!! The SA did give me a minuscule sample (she’s new – the other girls are far more generous) and will call me when it comes in again. Can you believe this? In my frustration, I went to Chanel and bought Pirate lipstick and, to be honest, I’m somewhat disappointed in it. I keep having to reapply and at that price, I was expecting something far more long-lasting! Anyway, I sure do love the Constructivist paint pot and can’t wait for the full size to arrive.

Weekend plans: A birthday dinner for my sister in law and her husband, both of whom turn 60 this month. This weekend is Canadian Thanksgiving and my youngest son will be home and we’re having the big family dinner on Monday. Also, I have a lot of yoga to attend because I began a “30 day challenge” that my studio runs 3 times a year and I’ve really committed myself to it.

Haul: Tarte Off The Cuff Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Palette & Bracelet, Tarte The Tarte of Giving Collector’s Set & Travel Bag, MAKE UP FOR EVER Diamond Shadow in 311 Burgundy and 309 Purple, MAKE UP FOR EVER Eyeshadow in 92 Purple, Urban Decay Lipstick in Lovelight, Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Laced, LORAC PRO Palette, Edward Bess Quad Royale in Monte Carlo, Edward Bess Blush Extraordinaire in Secret Affair, Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Raindrops, Zoya Nail Polish in Payton, Dream and Aurora, Color Club Nail Polish in Cosmic Fate, Kismet, Eternal Beauty, Angel Kiss and Cherubic.

Weekend plans: I was going to set up and play with my new Raspberry Pi, but unfortunately some of the parts I need are stuck in customs 🙁 I’ll probably just stay at home watching TV and do some boring organizing and cleaning.

Favorite TV show?: I watch A LOT of TV! I probably follow about 25 of them each week. Current favorites: Homeland, Pretty Little Liars, American Horror Story, CSI (although the last couple of seasons haven’t been that great), Orphan Black. Old favorites: Twin Peaks!, The X-Files, Eureka, Fringe, The L Word, Dirty Sexy Money, Friends, Veronica Mars, Passions!, Desperate Housewives, Ally McBeal, LOST (but the ending ruined the entire show).

I’m tempted by the Tarte blush palette! Less keen on acquiring any more mega-palettes this holiday, though.

Very nice haul 😀

Haul: La Roche Posay Effeclar Duo and a veritable shitton of house things. Bless my boyfriend’s parents and their willingness to buy us furniture.

Weekend Plans: It’s the end of the Cannstatter Volksfest in Stuttgart so tomorrow we’re going to dive through town and head over. Aside from that – just boring work stuff and cleaning up.

Favourite TV Show: Boston Legal and The Thick of It are my ultimate favourites, I’d say!

Are you big on home decorating? I wish I had the talent. I love looking at other people’s spaces and how they arrange their furniture!

I love it. I’ve never had the chance to decorate before – so now that we’ve got our own place I may… have gone a little crazy. IDK if I’m any good at it but I’m having fun so! >_>

Me too. Bedroom Tours and Makeup Storage videos take up way too much of my time haha.

Favorite TV show?: Right now? X-factor UK maybe.

Haul: Covergirl Tapestry Taupe eyeshadow, Maybelline Silken Taupe and Tastefully taupe eyeshadow. There may be a theme here…

Weekend Plans: Currently in NYC for Comic Con! 🙂

Favorite TV show: I stopped watching television about three years ago, but I’ve heard Hannibal and Breaking Bad were very good, so I might Netflix them.

Haul: Mehron green and gold lipsticks, rigid collodion, barrier spray and lipstick sealer, China Glaze polish in Boo-gie Down, NYX Wonder Pencil in Light, gel liner in Teal and Jumbo Eye Pencil in Sparkling Green, Hello Kitty Tokyo Pop mirror, Sephora X polish in Out of Sight, OPI Rock Goddess set, and two Steve Madden bags.

Plans: Not sure. Hope it doesn’t rain this weekend so we can finish putting out our Halloween decorations.

Fave TV Show: If I HAD to whittle it down, my all-time faves would be Xena, X-Files, Buffy, Doctor Who and Animaniacs. Currently it’s American Horror Story and The Walking Dead.

Yuppers! I’m going to be Medusa this year, but my hubby won’t let me go all out because he’s afraid I’ll scare our baby and my nephews. So it’ll be a beauty makeup with some Medusa-like features. I have to start practicing.

he looks so funny, our lil one seems to be half black retriever, her mom is a Rottweiler. Is 9 weeks old and still does not like belli rubs, she likes to nib only

Aww! Give her time 🙂

Mellan actually hates to roll over. As a puppy, he would groan when we’d tell him to do it – we eventually gave up on that one!

Haul: Chanel Joues Contraste 84 Accent; Jordana mascara; I pre-ordered Dior’s Marilyn nail polish from Le Grand Bal collection (I happened to spot it on Nordstrom’s website).

Weekend plans: hiking

Favorite TV show?: The Newsroom; House of Cards; The Walking Dead; Face Off; The Big Bang Theory.

Haul: Picked up the Sephora Ariel mirror since it was back in stock. NARS Disco Inferno.

Weekend plans: I have an item I need to return and one to exchange. Spoiling the kids tonight. EVE Online.

Favorite TV show?: Firefly, West Wing. I also lack a favorite show that is currently airing. Though I never did watch a lot of television.

Have a good weekend!

Haul: I never got mine last week 🙁 Also I need to get Take a Deep Breath by Philosophy. Out of moisturizer. And pick up my VIB welcome kit at Sephora. And all those H&M, Hollister coupons and deals are getting to me.

Favorit TV show- right now it has to be Scandal

Haul: Nada. I haven’t bought a thing in weeks! I haven’t even looked! I’ve been busy but also kind of proud of myself 😉 LOL! Though I think this weekend will involve a beauty-related purchase…

Weekend plans: I need to get another fridge for storage of my foundations and other liquid products. My old one broke and there’s no room for my makeup AND food in the fridge in the kitchen 😉 LOL Otherwise I don’t know… been sick with a HORRIBLE cold for the past week and I just want to feel better.

Favorite TV show?: MOST of the shows I watch are on the pay cable channels (Californication, Dexter and True Blood are some of my favorites). I also watch Supernatural, American Horror Story and Days of Our Lives pretty religiously and THEN there are those shows I enjoy but I don’t watch every single episode of (Once Upon a Time, Law & Order SVU, etc.) Years ago when I started working from the house I watched a lot of movies (as background noise) but I’ve found TV shows are easier and require less planning 😉 LOL I don’t like quiet while I’m working but I’ve never been one to listen to music while I’m working either.

Haul: I ordered two more armani eyes to kill intense eyeshadows (24 & 26), supposed to arrive today. I got 28 & 30 a couple of months ago and LOVE them. I also picked up Deva Curl no-poo and one condition earlier this week, and I love them. My hair feels so soft and hydrated.

Weekend plans: My husband and I hope to carve pumpkins together tomorrow. In general, I’m hoping for some rest and relaxation after a long work week.

Favorite TV shows: I don’t really like to watch TV. I do love to read books, and my most recent favorites are the Jack Reacher series of books by Lee Child.

Haul: Sleek i-Divine Sunset Palette. Got it yesterday in the mail, I ordered from the Amazon link here. It took about a week, not bad only $2.50 for international shipping. Love the palette, beautiful colors and the shadow stayed on all day! One of the reasons I love Temptalia, learning about great makeup lines I normally wouldn’t have run across.

Weekend plans: Not much probably a nice dinner out with my hubby,

Favorite TV shows: Walking Dead, Orange is the New Black, American Horror Story,

Yay!! I ordered through the same seller (probably) for the Vintage Romance to test out the process and had the same results. So glad you are loving the palette!!

Haul: Another week without a haul. My bank account loves that.
Weekend plans: I meet friends tomorrow and maybe donsom trousers shopping on Sunday, when the shops have open in the afternoon. Usially they are closed on Sunday.
