…what DIDNT I get? UD Ocho Loco 2, HG ambient palette, two MJ nail polish (Petra and le charm), sephora X starter set with a nice nude pink nail polish. Nars eyeshadow primer, mines almost done. The sephora lip set that’s $25 and a Charlotte ronson eyeshadow palette for $11 (which ended being free after my 20% off basically :)). OMG benefit sephora set with primer and mascara. Nars nail polish that was $5. And another sephora X nail polish that’s called Gemini, my zodiac sign so I had to grab it 🙂 OK DONE!

Haul: Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick 17 (Kate Moss collection), a couple of nail polishes from Maybelline and L’Oreal (mostly topcoats), and Revlon’s Matte Balm in Standout. I did stumble upon the new Maybelline matte cream shadows, but somebody had decided to open up and swatch the only color I wanted from the collection. Gross. 9_9

Weekend plans: Working overtime, then hanging out with friends Sunday.

Favorite accessory of the moment?: A red lip is my only accessory right now. 🙂

I scooped up a good portion of both KBShimmer’s new Christmas polish and Girly Bits new polish as well…needless to say I have to be good for awhile:) I’m working my holiday job this weekend & making TONS of fleece fringe scarves(boas) for a Christmas Bazaar in two weeks!

Tarte Lights Camera Flashes
Nars Guy Bourdin Promiscuous Lip Pencil Coffret

And I got the Benefit Birthday gift and the 500 point Honey Marc Jacobs rollerball and bag! I have points just sitting there that I dont know how to use, so this was a good choice, I think.
I wanted to get the LORAC pro palette but it was out of stock, but I plan to visit an actual store before the sale ends, so hopefully will score it then.

Plans: None really.
Accessory: These gold wire crochet hoops I found on Etsy, love them, wear them all the time!

Haul: Clinique Take The Day Off, L’Oreal Sublime Mousse Colour in Cherry Kiss (which suckkkkeddddd), a new coat from H&M and a 2DS/Pokemon X (no shame B))
Weekend plans: Schnitzel on Saturday and probably buying another hair dye because the Mousse was awful. I wanted bright red and it just. Did. Not. At. All. I can barely tell the difference.
Favorite accessory of the moment?: Scarves!

It’s Supermellan! So cute 🙂

Haul: purchases made during the past three weeks or so:
Guerlain Crazy Meteorites; Dior Smoky Khaki trio; Chanel Charming palette; Marc Jacobs Petra n/p. Dior Iconic Overcurl, Guerlain Maxi Lash and Chanel Le Volume (I pre-ordered a month ago or so while in a Nordstrom 3 for 2 mascaras and I already got them yesterday). I pre-ordered Burberry’s Pale Barley (shipping on Nov 12). Yesterday I bought only three things from Sephora’s VIB sale: Shiseido cotton, Nars Dragon Girl matte velvet pencil and a set of 3 mini Lavanilla deodorants. I’m gonna have to go a store and stock up on a couple of bottles of Origins’s Well Off eye makeup remover (apparently they don’t carry that online). I just ordered the lip scrubbed you’ve written about this morning ;). I bought two of the most recent Maybelline Color Tattoos: Nude Pink and Matte Brown; Sonia Kashuk’s Jewel of an Eye palette (on clearance); Formula X n/p in Vivacious; Revlon Nearly Naked foundation in 120 Vanilla (130 Shell has always been a bit dark on me, more so now during the fall/winter). Lastly, on Monday I won a Marc Jacobs The Lolita palette during their twitter sweepstakes (yay!) so I guess that will show up at some point.

Weekend plans: Shopping for Xmas decorations :). Happy birthday to your mom!

Favorite accessory of the moment? My Michael Kors Fulton leather bag in gunmetal.

I love Chanel’s Charming palette, Dior’s Smoky Khaki trio and I’m so impressed with Dior’s Overcurl mascara, it’s amazing. Unfortunately Guerlain’s Crazy Meteorites shows up too pink on my face when I use it as a finishing powder. Not quite sure how to use it at the moment, I might need a different brush.

Haul: Chanel Rouge Moire vernis and Dior Diorrific Winter l/s…contemplating getting my second pot of Nars Eros Lip Lacquer. I LOVE IT and it’s almost GONE!!!!!!!
Weekend plans: Long weekend! YAY! Relax, play outside with my 3 yr old, laundry, church, cleaning…..EXCITING!!!!!!!
Favorite accessory of the moment?: My red velvet Longchamp Funtaisy Crossbody hobo bag!

Haul: More Nars Laguna bronzer from Sephora (so I could get the cute Blitz sample bag!), refills on my MAC StudioFix and Nymphette Lip Glass, Eyeko eyeliner…I think that was it 🙂
Weekend plans: Heading up to my parents house and they’re watching the kids for us to have a date night tomorrow night, then my hubby is in a bike race Sunday morning.
Favorite accessory of the moment?: My baby girl 🙂

Aww. I say both, he adores you and then expects to be given treats for being cute. 😀

Haul: I totally blame you for the purchases I made. 😉 I got: Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Rose Gold (pressed); Chanel Joues Contraste in Accent, Le Vernis in Rouge Moire, Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in Controversy, Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lipsticks in Audacieuse and Farouche, Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lipstick in La Desiree

Weekend plans: None, we’re staying in because of super typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda. I hope it leaves soon, the sound of the wind howling outside is pretty damn scary. 🙁

Favorite accessory of the moment?: A custom-made 24K gold bracelet my mom gave me, and my Burberry leather tote.

Probably both true!

Great haul, Precious!

I am a sucker for Burberry 🙂 Mostly just admire, but always lovely window shop!

Day one of the Annual Autumn Sephora Raid (aka VIB sale) was a success. Multiple gift sets for Christmas lists. Tarte and Fresh are blowing me away this year with all of their options and price points. Good thing this coupon is good all weekend. The Christmas list is very long, and I should get myself some essentials. Though I couldn’t pass the Marc Jacobs Showstopper lipstick.

Weekend plans:
Friend’s birthday party. Get things for my husband’s upcoming birthday party. More Annual Autumn Sephora Raid. Do my makeup and photo shoot and editing and blog post for the weekend.

Favorite accessory of the moment?:
Tahitian black pearl earrings that I bought while on my honeymoon in Tahiti.

Their lip treatment sets. For the price of two or three of their lip treatments (~$25) they have sets of 3, 5, and $20 with extra scrubs and cleansers. Fresh went crazy this year with gift sets and I couldn’t resist.

Oh and the OCC mini lip tar set? I got the last one available from my local Sephora! I need to do more shopping because I was going to gift that to at least three lipstick addicts this Christmas.

Haul: Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment, Illamasqua Throb, Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick, Prada Candy Gift Set, Illamasqua Lily-Rose, Illamasqua Vow, NARS Train Bleu, Caudalie Beauty Elixir, Josie Maran Argan Oil.

Weekend plans: Lounging! Streaming BlizzCon. It’s become a tradition!

Favorite accessory of the moment?: I have a silver perfume locket from For Strange Women that I wear often now.

Haul: Illamasqua lipstick in Brink, Formula X for Sephora The Twenty-Two, Urban Decay Grind House sharpener, ELLE polish in Kiwi Bikini, China Glaze polishes in Light as a Feather and Party Fowl, Maybelline Color Tattoos in Nude Pink and Just Beige.

Plans: No idea. Maybe search for something nice for my son to wear when he gets his pics with Santa soon.

Accessory: Rose gold spiked ring and my son. He attracts so much attention whenever we go out.

That look of anticipation on Mellan’s face is adorable!

Haul: Used my Sephoa VIP discount to buy : Glamglow Gift Sexy, Dr. Brandt’s skin care glow eye cream, Anastasia blow gel in espresso, Clinique Take the day off makeup remover, Urban Decay Demolition eyeliner and Ardency Inn Modster deep purple eyeliner, started to get the green one since I loved the way it looked on your review but thought I’d better stick to a color I’d wear more,anxious to see how it wears!
Weekend plans: My son is coming home from college for the long weekend. That means he’s bringing his laundry ,lol. We’ll probably go to the beach and out to dinner.

Favorite Accessory: My rose gold cross necklace from Tiffany’s

I’d vote for treats, please. It’s a bit too intense to be adoration LOL

Haul: Hmm so I just got back from Taipei and I bought some stuff (naturally). I got Dior Iridescent Leather (which is permanent in Asia as far as I know), Dior Creme Abricot, Laura Mercier Khaki Caviar Stick, Cle de Peau brow pencil and concealer… I THINK that’s about it 😉

Weekend plans: Grocery shopping, hanging out with the fiance, and hopefully get rid of my jet lag (it’s not that bad but I feel “fuzzy” most of the time, like I’m perpetually half-asleep)!

Favorite accessory of the moment?: My engagement ring!

Aw Mellan, you little cutie 🙂

Haul: the Estee Lauder ANR Eye Serum Infusion! I was eyeing that one (pun intended yes :-P) for quite a while!

Weekend plans: Hit the city with my man tomorrow, and just have fun 🙂

Favorite accessory of the moment?: Ooh tough one… I think my lace bow-tie 🙂

Haul: NADA!

Weekend plans: IMATS Toronto on Saturday (then Sephora in store) and watching Out of Africa on Sunday in movie theatre! Queen of Blending will be there again with OCC.

Favorite accessory of the moment?: Scarves! We got snow today. >_<

I'll also say my poppy right now as well. It's remembrance day on Monday.

Haul: I finally picked up Kat von D Spellbinding; NYX Butt Naked Eyes (this could very well be *the* palette I reach for most!); Real Techniques powder brush & eye set (both backups); Physician’s Formula Shimmer Strips in Malibu, Miami, & Riviera; Maybelline Color Tattoos (all 3 of the new matte ones); Rimmel/Kate Moss 113; Prestige Mineral Bronzing Powder in Pure Shimmer; 9 Sinful Colors nail polishes; Maybelline Four Seasons Light Bronzer (1/2 price); Deluxe sample Ole Henriksen Perfect Truth CC Cream.

Plans: Target, and hopefully finish up my daughter’s Christmas list…

Accessory: Sunhlasses; nothing fancy, or special, just something to protect my extremely sensitive eyes.

I’d been hunting for them at all of my “regular” stores, but my daughter wnted to eat at a restaurant across town, plus I had CVS & Bed, Bath, & Beyond coupons, so we just made a day of it. The display was pretty muchccompletely empty at BB&B, but the one at CVS was barely touched. I hadn’t planned on finding them, but decided to splurge while I had the chance. I also picked up Barely Branded.

I was looking at the NYX palette today at Sephora. It swatches so nicely! If it wasn’t for the fact that I own half the shadows in it, I would have gone for it. 😛

Haul: MAC Trax eye shadow (pro pan) and another 4 pan empty palette, Sephora Jumbo Shadow/Pencil Liner in Taupe

Weekend plans: a fundraising gala dinner later this evening (have to start getting ready soon) put on by the Law Society. My youngest son will be home this weekend too, so that will mean special stuff. And I want to get to the gym tomorrow and, of course, to Sephora to take advantage of the 20% off.

Favourite accessory at the moment – probably a terrific and very long scarf that I wear most days – it pulls together almost anything I wear and because it’s a floral print with a lot of wine in it, it works well with most of my clothes. Other than that, a sapphire and diamond bracelet that my husband bought me (and which I’ll be wearing tonight) but it’s a bit fancy for school.

Haul: My new MAC “toothbrushes” should be here within the next two hours! I’m actually excited to try these out! 🙂 Hurry UPS!!!

Weekend plans: OMG I’ve had the WORST time figuring it out. It’s a three-day weekend and I want to go do SOMETHING but the weather is kind of crap so it’s kind of hard figuring out WHAT to do. Turning into far more of a big deal than it needs to be and its kind of driving me crazy today.

Favorite accessory of the moment?: I got a vintage belt buckle last month than says “Disco” on it and I’ve been wearing it every chance I get 😉

Tested the brushes today 🙂

AND I ended up making a list of things that might be fun to do that I decided I shall choose from when/if I become bored this weekend. Sort of a grab bag of activities 🙂

Ahaha! Uploading right now 🙂 Sort of a continuation of the video I did last week on what lipsticks I keep in my kit. This one is one the three foundations that I keep and use all the time 🙂

VIB haul:
Sephora Favorites Super Stars

I also grabbed a Stila Color Balm lipstick and Clinique Chubby Stick balm with some of my points.

I missed out on the 12 Lip Tars and the Give Me More Lip kit as they were both sold out before the sale started.

Weekend plans: None.

Fave accessory: My Bearpaw boots!! Technically not an accessory so much as a necessity, but I’ll be living in them until the weather warms up. I have 3 pairs of them….so far….

Haul: Just a mini haul – Revlon Nail Enamel in Divine and some Scunci hair clips that were on sale!
Weekend plans: Sleep, read and shop for a foundation – I´m not sure wheter to buy the same or try another one.
Favorite accesory of the moment: My best friend gave me a Murano crystal charm years ago and it’s still my favorite accesory!

Mellan is so charming in today’s pic…..!! I believe it’s adoration in his eyes, but he knows you adore him too, so he will get a treat :D!!

Sephora online was already out of a several items I had on my wish list (Sunday Riley Primer, Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa H20, etc.) so I wish you good luck in getting items on your list. I think I’ll head down to my local Sephora to see what they have in stock and hope it’s not mayhem down there. They of course, don’t carry SR or KGD.

UDPP mini, they stay fresh
Mètèorites, Teint Dore, to divide and play with the colors
Korres Sleeping facial with bonus face wash and face cream.
NARS Disco Ball nail polish
A couple of sets of eyeliner stickers

I tried something different this time and called in my order to my local store, complete with sample requests. They had it ready, this is perfect if I am in a hurry or don’t feel like browsing at all!
I had them gift box the Korres set b/c I liked the cute box, and my fave SA will book me in for makeover next week, a fun day.

Weekend plans: Members opening at a new art show, making yummy, cheesy raclette for brunch, home facial.

Weekend plans: writing a paper on Buddhism, working on my screenplay and hopefully baking something yummy. 🙂

Favorite accessory of the moment?: I haven’t brought out my jewelry in a while, so nail art has been a fun way to jazz up my look. I like doing accent nails and of course, I like nail stamping.

Weekend Plans: I got to see Thor today and that’s pretty much all I had planned.

Favorite Accessory: My “J” necklace that my mom got me when I graduated high school.

I actually really love the Smashbox palette. This is my first experience with Smashbox and I am really impressed. The top row is all shimmer and the bottom row are all mattes. They go from dark at the outside to light in the center. The left side is warm shades and the right side is cool shades. The eyeshadows are really pigmented and I do not experience much, if any, fall out with the shimmer shades. The matte shades are also really pigmented, maybe just a touch powdery with the lightest shade. Now, I am super pale, so it doesn’t take much for an eyeshadow to show up on my skin. However, I have been reaching for this almost every day as I can create a super natural look or I can amp it up with a bit of shimmer or some of the darker shades. I would really love to see your review on this, if you ever get it and have the time. Your review process is way more stringent and would be more in depth than mine will ever be.

Sephora VIB haul:
-MUFE HD Foundation N118 (N125 is starting to look too dark on me and I’m almost out)
-MUFE Aqua Eyes 11L (I’ve had my eye on this purple for quite awhile)

-Lip Tar All Star Mini X4 set (I can finally try Black Dahlia!)
-Sephora + Pantone Universe Transforming Gloss in Gardenia
-Sehora Professional Crease brush #10 (Two of them were in the clearance bin and still sealed up!)

-Butter London in HRH
-OCC Nail Lacquer in Black Metal Dahlia

Ulta haul:
-NYX Butter Lip Balm in Ladyfingers (I love the one I have in shade Panna Cotta)
-Eco Tools Deluxe Fan brush
-Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque (I bought the $4 packet to try it out a couple of days ago and OMG my hair is SOOOOO soft!)

Weekend Plans: Painting interior trim and base moldings

Favorite accessory of the moment: a $2 bracelet from JC Penny that has received more compliments than all my other expensive jewelery put together.

Holy cow Black Dahlia is AMAZING! I even put a little bit of NSFW in the middle and blended it out on my lips… I really wanted to throw a temper tantrum when I had to take it off to go to bed! 😉

Edit: I didn’t end up getting the OCC Black Dahlia nail polish. I got the $5 bottle of NARS nail polish in Disco Inferno and some Sephora waterproof eye makeup remover.

Haul: I kept having afterthoughts every time I put in an order at Sephora, so I ended up with three different orders.. but I guess half the fun is receiving stuff in the mail, LOL. I was *going* to get the Ambient Lighting palette, but they were sold out by the time I went to place the order, but I reasoned with myself, and decided to just outright buy two of the Ambient Lighting powders, the ones that I *really* wanted to try. Anywho:

Favorite accessory of the moment? Does lip balm count? Now that it’s getting colder, my lips have been chapping up like nobody’s business, so I’ve kept my Jack Black Lip Balm [Black Tea & Blackberry!] within arm’s reach pretty much 24/7.

It is fun to receive things in the mail!

Favorite accessory of the moment: My wedding and engagement rings are my favorite accessories of all time. I’m not much of a jewelry person, so that’s usually all I wear.

Haul: I need to buy a Ciate Nail Ornaments set for a friend for Christmas. SHHHHH!!! Part of my VIB haul. I think I might try to make it to SF to get a few things for my VIB haul like a Rouge G L’Extrait Envie, some Illamasqua polishes.
Plans: My midterm got moved back to Monday and I have another one Tuesday. Work.
Accessory?: None at the moment. Maybe my Colette bag (Australian bag) that is a small dupe of a Valentino Rockstar Studs bag. 🙂 Love my Valentino.

Plans: Nothing 🙂
Favorite accessory: Don’t really have any… hmm..

That looks like a treats?? face if I ever saw one haha! Though I have no doubt he adores you 😛

No haul yet this week, but I am sizing up a Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lipgloss haul! Thinking of getting Naked Plum, Bronzed Heather, Electric Violet and tossing up whether I include Black Ruby too (I just don’t know if I’d wear it enough!). I’m also trying to decide if I want Bellini, Pastel or Bare Sparkle, as I already have Pink Tulle (which I LOVE) and I don’t think I need more than 2 sheer shades. Decisions, decisions!!

Haul: Again a week without a haul. I prefere shopping my stash right now, but maybe I will buy a holiday palette.
Weekend plans: Do some clean out some of my cupboards
Favorite accessory of the moment?: My earmuffs by Ugg Australia
