Hauli-days come early: I pick up several lippies! MAC’s Film Noir and Heroine, Bobbi Brown’s Rich Lip Color in Cosmic Rasberry, and Dior’s Fluid Stick in Wonderland. These were my first Bobbi Brown and Dior lippie purchases. I am wearing the Bobbi right now and I think I am in loooove.

😀 Mellan loves the water! Do you have a pool or do you have to take him somewhere to swim?

Haul: This week I ordered my UD Electric Palette and a lipliner in Midnight Cowboy so I could get the free shipping, the Tarina Tarantino Emerald Pretty palette and Ultraviolet Hyperliner from Hautelook, a Greed UD primer potion from Nordstrom Rack, and grabbed a Maybelline Elixer in Breathtaking Apricot, a Maybelline Vivids in Vivid Rose, and a L’Oreal Lacquer Liner from Walgreens. Hmmmm, I should probably take it easy next week!
Weekend plans: Going to Carmel Valley for the weekend with a bunch of friends!
Favorite blended/iced/frozen drink?: Mocha Frappuccino!

Haul: Divergent (both the Set and Palette). I also managed to snag all of the new Maybelline Color Tattoos at a CVS by work. Maybelline also had a set of new nude lipsticks as part of the collection, and I picked up Nude Embrace to try. And I also found the new WnW Spring Palettes.

Weekend plans: Going to Philly to view the Pompeii Exhibit at the Franklin Institute

Favorite blended/iced/frozen drink?: Starbucks Java Chip, or Naked Vitamin C Boost drink

Haul: I didn’t buy anything this week, but my NARS order *finally* arrived, which was Love blush & Fashion Rebel eyeshadow duo. I also picked up NARS Night Fairy, and Night Rider should be there by now, so I’ll probably pick it up later.

Plans: Staying in, cleaning, laundry that has piled up since we had a major plumbing overhaul in my building last week, that went a few days into this week… We have plenty of clothes, but I *hate* having dirty laundry around!

Frozen Drink: Black & White milkshakes!

Lisa Avatar

Haul: Nars Radiant Creamy concealer, butter LONDON Slapper and The Black Knight. I made an Urban Decay order but it hasn’t arrived yet. I bought Gash, Scandal, and the new cream liner.
Weekend plans: Try to catch up on sleep!
Favorite blended/iced/frozen drink?: Pretty much any flavor of Frappucino!

Denise S. Avatar

That video is so cool of water baby Mellan!
Haul: Anxiously awaiting the delivery of the Urban Decays electric palette!And I also ordered a crease brush so I could get the free shipping.
Weekend plans: Spring cleaning and decluttering!!
Favorite iced drink: I like Starbucks frozen mocha frappuccino’s but rarely buy it too many calories! I always drink iced tea at restaurants.

Haul: Nars Radiant Concealer in Custard (I am very on the fence about it); Tarte Maracuja C Brightener Eye Cream (got a sample on Monday and went back to buy the full size yesterday), Sephora Professional Cream Eye Shadow brush – is it EVER TERRIFIC! Oh, and I just got home to find my IT Cosmetics Showstopper purchase from the Canadian Shopping Channel at my door – the CC cream and brush, the waterproof Tightline Mascara and a lip gloss/serum.

Weekend plans: some shopping, maybe, the gym, yoga, catching up on sleep (I’ve been staying up way too late this week) and tonight, dinner out with a neighbour/friend I haven’t seen in months.

Favourite frozen drink – it changes all the time because Starbucks and The Second Cup are always coming out with new temptations.

Veronica Avatar

Haul: Nothing, for once. I’m trying to hunt down a backup of Maybelline’s Nude Compliment because IT IS LOVE, but I’m thinking I may have delayed too long. It’s the shade that seems sold out everywhere!
Weekend plans: Working! Also, trying to get some writing in AND push out some school applications. (Time to start procrastinating, haha!)
Favorite blended/iced/frozen drink?: Starbucks green tea frappucino. OMNOMNOM

Rikki Avatar

No new makeup for me this week!

I like iced coffee.

My weekend plans… I just uploaded my entry for the MUFE contest on YouTube and I have to actually go enter that on their website, but the cafe wifi is slow so I’m gonna wait until I get home. After that, I’m doing a tutorial collab with someone so I’m gonna practice for that!

Denise Avatar

Aww, lovely video. Neither of my two dogs will go near the water (and one of them is a spaniel for Petes sake!) unless its to dunk the ball they’ve been playing fetch with at the beach, in the ocean to get rid of all the sand on it.
Haul: I’ve been a good girl this week – didn’t buy a thing. For me that is. For my daughter I bought a pair of faux leather leggings and two jumpers plus a pair of white leather trainers. Clearly I’m living vicariously thru my child here! Bit sad really!
Weekend plans: Doing the ironing. Snore. Going out to dinner this evening tho’ and my daughter has invited a couple of her friends for a sleepover tonight too.
Favorite blended iced/frozen drink: Is a beautiful french wine that has cognac in it served with ice. yum!

I love the Mellan video!! What a cutie 🙂

I bought Mally Poreless Perfection Foundation with Brush.
also Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm and a Matte Balm ( I need more of these!)

Valerie C. Avatar

It has nice coverage, which is what I’m looking for. The shades run a bit dark and warm, but, I’m keeping the Fair I bought. It’s wearable.The brush sheds a bit, yet works well. I use my own brush/sponge though. Mally makes interesting products. Her face primers are great!

Just love that dog!

Haul, last w/e, Sephora: Mood Exposure, unfortunately broken. Kat von D liquid: shrinks aging lips + not very comfortable when it dries: gave it away. Gorgeous red, though. S + Pantone blush trio: YES! Chose Bite pencil in Violet for the L/S 2nd to a bit purpler, Buxom in Brooklyn (still love that Barcelona)+ the Kat von D Esperanza palette.

Be outside with dogs, finish Swedish crime novel, and play with the makeup I didn’t dare try, when sick. Probably a bigger haul at Trader Joe’s. The appetite is back! Exchange the HG blush + hopefully not succumb to another haul: Good thing you didn’t review the eye palette! But UD pencils are always calling, damn them! Just a hit of colored liner w/ Naked basics is a good look for an old broad who is holding out for color.

Haul: Another no-haul-week. I still haven’t finished my project 20 pan/products (including samples, sachets and full sizes), so only rebuys of skin care is allowed.
Weekend plans: A trip to my mum’s brother with my mum, because I go to the Backstreet Boys concert on Sunday, which is in my uncles area. A perfect opportunity to visit him and to join the music of my first “boygroup-love” live. I am excited.
Favorite blended/iced/frozen drink?: Starbucks Coffee Frapucchino Iced Blended Coffee or Starbucks Iced Shaken Hibiskus Tea. Both yummi
