* Tom Ford Negligee arrived! The formula is now on my list of lipsticks that play fairly with my lips. I don’t find it hydrating, but it also doesn’t cause my lips to peel off. I’d consider that a win.
* Tom Ford Nude Dip is one stage away from being cancelled by Nordstrom. They opened too many order slots for the amount of product that they were getting, and my order is one of the ones that likely can’t be filled. Once they cancel it (and they will), that’s the end of my relationship with them, as this isn’t the first time they’ve done this.

So glad Tom Ford’s formula is a win for you! πŸ™‚

I’m sorry to hear about your experience with Nordstrom, though πŸ™

Oh wow… That really suck! Very unprofessional. Awful really. I got mine from the TF website and gotta say was perfect service.. So you consider that option next time. Though they have an awful return policy, but the service is impeccable. Same goes for NM… Awful return policy, but great service.

Haul: Nothing (I’m gearing up for a few biggies. though!)
Weekend plans: gym and yoga but mostly just taking it easy for a change
Favourite berry: toss up between the strawberry (the small, local ones) and the raspberry but the cherry (not a berry but still my favourite summer fruit) trumps them ALL!

Haul: It Cosmetics Tightline Waterproof Mascara Primer, Your Skin But Better CC + Cream In Fair, and Bye Bye Under Eye Waterproof In Light.

Weekend plans: Finalizing the pavers on the families patio.

Favorite berry?: Raspberries as well

I actually use it as macara because the formula and the brush does an excellent job of get right to the root of my blonde lashes and separating them. I have a lot of fine strand lash and bot maracas clump them together. It even gets my super fine lower lashes. πŸ˜‰

Haul : Repurchases from Kerastase, L’Occitane and some Chanel goodies!

Weekend Plans : Lot of cooking, I am planning on making some never before recipes!

Favorite Berries : Strawberries!

Haul: Don’t remember if I mentioned this or not but last week I met Carmindy and I ended up picking up Carmablur and yesterday the Game Changer foundation arrived in the mail. I also purchased Mally Face Defender (I think it’s arriving today) and I picked up the Hourglass blush…not sure if I have buyer’s remorse 😑
Weekend plans: Going to the Big E today (it’s a big fair on the east coast) and dad’s company picnic tomorrow. Sunday I’m probably going to run around and try to do everything I need to before October! (so close)
Favorite berry?: Strawberries and Blueberries yum!

I totally forgot about her makeup line! I still have a few pieces from her collaboration with Sally Hansen, which I absolutely loved (I picked up some backups when the line was DCd & on clearance). Some of her products seem very promising!

Lavanila Lavender deodorant is my absolute fave, i stock up on it whenever I can (especially now that the price has gone down — it used to be $18!).
Haul: MAC Fluidline Pencil in Evil Twin
Weekend plans: Clean the house, then maybe head to an Oktoberfest festival (don’t they seem to get earlier every year?)
Favorite berry: Blueberries!

Haul: I was good and didn’t buy anything…yet. I’m trying to hold off for all of the blush palettes coming out in the holiday collections.
Weekend plans: I think I’m going to see Maze Runner and catch up on some sleep.
Favorite berry?: Raspberries, but good>/i> blackberries could be a close second.

I’m really liking the 5-blush palette from Tarte, and the trio from Hourglass! I’ve been wanting to try out the hourglass formula, and it’s a good way to get more variety for a lower price.

Haul: so much stuff! Got the hakuhodo brushes, two nars audacious lipsticks, mufe’s electric purple blush, thebalm’s pinstripe blush (thebalm products are available at Duane Reede, who knew?), two nyx butter glosses, one smashbox lipstick, mac taupe blush from the artificially wild collection, mac 217, benefit dallas blush, hourglass dim light, and a ton of foundation samples that i’ll try when i go back home.

Mellan looks really comfy and beautiful! Hugs and kisses for him from me and the boys.
Shampoo, conditioner and dog food.
No plans, maybe see a movie.

Have a great weekend Christine.

Going to spend the weekend with my boyfriend. Gyno appointment, donuts, and possible makeup haul hahah.

Also, I love your dogs paws. I have a weird obsession with doggy and kitty feets. They’re so cute aahhhh

Ugh I love when they kind of curl their paws towards them so they can lick it better. My sister’s pets sort of get annoyed by me because I go straight for snuggles and playing with their paws when I visit haha

I still cannot make up my mind onto what do I want from the Gucci line! Still got two Audacious lipsticks. Anna and Anita. Got few MUFE eye shadows. 310, 624 and a matte (how unlikely), 636. Got one of the NailsInc polish…Victoria. Loving that. A Bite lip something in Glace…not so impressed about, and a couple of Maybelline lipsticks… Taupe something… And Spice something. Very comfortable to wear and quite pretty. Oh yeah! And a Mac brush.. Your favorite, Christine… 239 is it? Yeap. Needed it to use on the most shimmery shades of my TF quads. Im very happy to realize that Mac brushes are made in Japan, and though are not the softest brushes ever, they perform just great.
Favorite Berries? Do I need to pick just one? Love them all!

What Gucci products are you considering?

A lot of the MAC brushes are made in Japan, but a lot of the more recently released ones (newer brushes) seem to be made in China (just a heads up).

The one I got was made in Japan,,so that made me happy.
I want to pick one quad (from Cosmic Deco, Crystal Copper or Autumn Fire), one duo (Fume) and the foundation. Have seen pretty good reviews on the quality of the products hut little to no swatches, so… And nor Gucci, nor Saks, nor NM have been helpful to determine which shade of foundation would suit me, so I’m stuck momentarily.

I totally agree with you. I contacted them all. Gucci, Saks, NM asking for samples or bare assistance. Absolutely nothing, so yeah, I don’t see that as a great sales strategy.
I hope Nordstrom carries the brand at some point, cause there is no help whatsoever anywhere to pin point the right shade. No description of the shades, no scale, nada.
I hope you have a lovely weekend !

Haul: Covergirl Queen Bronzer. Bobbi Brown new powder foundation
Weekend plans: Finish school project/classifications for science using candy. We are doing a Las Vegas theme. Going to Oprah’s Live your Live tour in DC (2-day event)
Favorite berry?: Raspberries, especially when added to Chombard Vodka πŸ™‚

Haul: Pantene hair care products. And that’s it! I plan on doing a little shopping tomorrow though.

Weekend plans: Date night with my fiancΓ© tomorrow, long overdue!

Favorite berry?: Blueberries. Oooomnomnom.

Haul: NYX Shadow pencil in Milk, which is NEVER in stock, and Maybelline Color Tattoo Leather in Creamy Beige.

Weekend plans: None.

Favorite berry?: Blueberries…by the pie-full!!

The only way I was able to grab Milk (and Black Bean) was with a 6-pencil set that came out last year, LOL! Fortunately, ULTA was having a sale, I had a coupon, and redeemed some points, since I didn’t care about getting the other 4.

It’s never in-store @ my Ulta either, but they generally have it online. It is a great base, esp. when you’ve got circles above as well as below eyes. Thanks, dad.

Haul: No makeup but I had an Amazon credit so I splurged and got the Simple Human makeup mirror. I’m trying to decide whether or not to keep it; it looks great but the light is so bright, it washes out the color a little so it’s tough to make sure I’ve blended well enough.

Weekend plans: Nothing exciting. I’m installing a new AC unit so I need to demo some drywall and reframe a wall section.

Favorite berry?: It’s never occured to me to think about a favorite berry. Maybe strawberries?

Haul: Nothing this week, but last week I finished my NYX butter gloss collection.
Weekend plans: I’m visiting a seasonal night market Friday, doing makeup for a small private shoot saturday morning, helping my Mother in Law pack up the house and take everything to storage Saturday afternoon, baking red velvet cupcakes, playing N64 games (Conker’s bad fur day + mario kart 64) and throwing back a party pack of Mike’s hard lemonade with a girlfriend saturday night, and spending Sunday with my BFF. I have a busy weekend that ends with Ribs for Sunday dinner with my folks.
Favorite berry?: Strawberries!

Haul: Nothing… However, I forgot to mention the brush sets I got last week from Amazon. One set was a 10-piece Bestope kabuki brush set, which is apparently a knock-off of Sigma brushes (which is kind of amusing considering Sigma brushes are MAC knock-offs, LOL), and the other was a 5-piece “Real Techniques” set, which ended up being counterfeit. The RT “fakes” are perfectly good brushes, but considering the order was fulfilled by Amazon, I’m a bit disappointed that they don’t make the effort ro ensure the goods they ship from their own warehouse are legit; had I ordered directly from the seller, I wouldn’t have expected genuine product, but I hold Amazon to a higher standard. I also threw on a no-name 15-pan concealer palette, just to get free shipping, but I really like it!

Plans: Stay in, and figure out 3rd-grade math in accordance to “Common Core” standards… I’m just looking forward to the results of all the State tests, which will show what a failure this is, LOL!

Favorite Berries: Blackberries, mainly for sentimental reasons. When I was a kid, blackberries grew abundantly where I grew up, and we would just pick them straight off the bush-apparently, we didn’t grasp the concept of washing fruit before eating…

I can’t believe there are RT counterfeits! They aren’t that expensive?! That’s crazy. I think that sellers can have Amazon fulfill their orders? like you as a third party seller can pay to have Amazon deal with the shipping aspect, so you may still have bought from a third-party. I’ve seen that with other products!

The brushes actually look identical to the RT brushes as far as the barrel/handle are concerned, and the bristles feel the same, but the only one that was actually a “dupe” was the duo-fibre brush, and the bristles are longer on the fake. The other 4 don’t have counterparts, that I know of, which os what piqued my interest. That said, they are really nice brushes, and 5 for about $15 USD is still a great deal. I’ve also washed them a few times, and no shedding!

My understanding, which could be wrong, is that Amazon gets a cut from what orders they “fulfill”, and that everything is held in one main warehouse. If this is the case, I think Amazon should take the care to ensure products are legit-especially if they are listed as such on Amazon’s own site. I would think, from a legal perspective (I’m not an attorney, but the law is something I enjoy researching) Amazon could be held culpable in facilitating the sale of counterfeit goods, which is apparently a big deal considering the amount of publicized raids in the last year.

Not yet, but I plan to this weekend. I don’t want a refund, nor do I want to return the brushes (like I said, they are incredibly good!), but I want to at least bring it to their attention.

The brushes are most likely physically manufactured by the same factory as the RT brushes, and I still would have ordered them had that been disclosed. Infact, I’ll probably oorder another set sometime daown the road, LOL!

Haul: Urban Decay Electric Palette, Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy palette (I got the last one at Ulta!), Zoya Pixie Dust in Cosmo…I think that’s it!

Weekend Plans: umm I don’t know I saw an ad for the LA cat film festival so maybe? I wanna meet Lil Bub!

Favorite berry?: Blueberry!

Haul:I got more of the Bite Beauty Matte CrΓ¨me Lip crayons (in Tatin, Fraise, Brandy, Amaretto & LΓ©chΓ©… I already have PΓͺche, SucrΓ© & Framboise!!). I also got the Too Faced Pretty Rebel palette because it was on sale online at Sephora and holy – I’m glad I did. It’s -crazy- pigmented. So glad I finally listened to you Christine! I also got the Maya Mia x Anastasia Beverly Hills palette, seems a bit powdery but we’ll see, the colours are gorgeous. I also refilled on the First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance pads!

Plans: Taking my mom to supper tonight to celebrate a lil milestone!

Favourite berry: Strawberries!

Mellan is thinking, Mommy never plays with me, she just takes pictures for her friends! πŸ™
Hope you have fun with your husbands family!

Haul: Nothing for the past few weeks, been too busy with grad school.
Weekend plans: Makerfaire NY. I’ll be there both days, Saturday as a visitor, and working it on Sunday morning.
Favorite berry?: Hmmmm….strawberries I guess!

He usually runs around the house like a mad-dog every couple of hours – he is funny, because he just wants you to watch him run around, LOL.

Haul: So far a teapot and a ton of sticky notes. I just came out of an exam cycle though so I probably deserve a lipstick.

Weekend plans: Laundry, cleaning, grocery shopping, cooking for the week… Mostly going to curl up with far too much tea (this pot makes 6 cups why did I fill it???) and Netflix.

Favorite berry: Wineberry! Best invasive species ever!

Haul : Jack Black DoubleDuty face moist,Coty Airspun face-powder,Makeup Geek eyeshadows in Cupcake, Last Dance, Stealth, Sea Mist and blushes in Smitten,Bliss,foundation strilping brush
Weekend plan : clean all my makeup brushes! Big time!
Favorite berry : blueberry and cranberry

Haul: No haul.

Weekend plans: Busy weekend with school assignments and reading thick textbooks. I also want to go to a thrift store and ask about selling some of my things so I can get some cash.

Favorite berry?: Strawberries. I made strawberry bread and strawberry lemon muffins a few weeks ago because I wanted to bake with that glorious summer fruit.

Haul: No makeup except for an NYC mascara because I needed one on the go. (Surprisingly good for $2, too.). I may of may not have walked into Target right when they put out the new Altuzarra line and gotten…distracted.

Weekend Plans: Ugh, two essays to right, a Pyhthon coding project, and a Microbio test to study for. College takes no victims.

Favorite berry: Fresh raspberries and blackberries.

Gorgeous. Easily one of their best collaborations. Makes up for when I ttagically missed the Alexander Wang line from awhile back. I wound up grabbing the sweater and skirt, and I got the sheer top for my sister. Really wanted the dress, but I think my build isn’t slight enough to work the boxy cut. Kind of suspect I’ll wind up grabbing more from the collection, but in trying to show some self control, haha.

Haul: Lots of goodies–I made the mistake of going to ULTA & TARGET this week and went to town!!! —-three of the new Maybelline Matte lipsticks (to review), the new L’Oreal Butterfly Effects INTENZE mascara (I squealed like a little kid when I saw it, LOL NO JOKE!!), two of the new fall Essie polishes (in Fall in Line and Partner in Crime), the Volume Filler shampoo/conditioner from L’Oreal (only used once so far and I can ALREADY tell a difference!), two more of the Too Faced Melted lipsticks in Peony and Marshmallow, Butter London polish in Dubbs, some of the Eylure False lashes and a bunch more of the IT Cosmetics for ULTA brushs (I think I’m missing just ONE MORE and then I’ll have all that I wanted)…..oh, and some new fall/halloween decorations that I want to try to put out this weekend.

Weekend plans: Community yard sale at my parents (going to help out my dad for a few hours) and then I’ve gotta turn over the baby’s (well, not still a BABY, she’s 3.5 now–lol!) summer clothes and get all of her fall stuff out and the summer sorted and stored. And maybe a trip to the mall on Sunday……

Favorite berry?: Strawberries!!!

Haul: NYX Extreme Blue Liquid Liner (LOOOOOOVE), EcoTools Large Powder Brush, Lorac Front of the Line Pro Liquid Liner (one of the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Steals)
Weekend plans: Family dinner tonight!
Favorite berry?: Strawberries

Clarins Hydra-Matte Lotion – It’s that time of year to switch out my summer skincare products for something more moisturizing. Ruelala offered a deep discount for this and some other skincare products. Clarins at a bargain I cannot resist.

I’m on a makeup no buy until my trip to Seoul next month. I’m sure my haul will be enough to start a Youtube channel. I have to remind myself to hold out for the holiday releases. The LORAC Mega Pro palette is number one on my wishlist.

Weekend plans:
Time to get my cell phone upgraded. Oh boy my husband scored the iPhone 6+. Yeah looks like we’re not going too far past the store.

Favorite berry?:
Strawberries. But seriously give me any other berry type and I will likely eat it.

Haul: Nothing, because I am on a makeup-no-buy until the end of September. And I really enjoy using my Bobbi Brown products from my last splurge in August.
Weekend plans: I had a day off today so sleeping, relaxing, “gardening” like depotting and splitting plants as well as planting scions (hope I chose the right gardening vocabularies), doing some paperwork. Nothing special.
Favorite berry?: Raspberries, too.

Haul: NARS Ita brush, NARS Audacious lippies in Brigette and Raquel, Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Powder, and Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream.
Weekend Plans: Dr. Who marathon with hubby and dogs! It was a long week, so I’m ready to relax.
Favorite Berry: totally agree with you, Christine, I love raspberries! Strawberries are a close second.

I hope you have fun with your husbands family! Love this week’s photo of Mellan… He looks so comfy!

Soooo, last weekend I wanted to get the Barney’s goodie bag, so I got the a Chanel eye palette, Le Blanc de Chanel, a Chanel blush in Plum attraction and a Nars Yachiyo brush. At Sephora, I got a Nars lipstick in Anna and Hourglass 1.5MM Mechanical Gel Eye (I really wanted to try it). was giving 20% off of some lines, so I got a By Terry Cover Expert foundation and 2 Stila eyeshadows singles ( Pigalle and Poise). I also got from Beautylish, the Charlotte Tilbury Vintage Vamp palette (I couldn’t resist). – Now I am in a lipstick no buy, considering entering an eyeshadow no buy too.

No plans for the weekend yet. I have to work on Saturday, but we are probably going to try The Griddle Cafe on Sunday – fancy breakfast food, yummy πŸ™‚

Blackberries forever!!!

I’m loving the By Terry foundation, Stila Pigalle is lovely, very buttery :), but I think my favorite is Vintage Vamp, it is surprisingly versatile, buttery, long wearing, looks great with my skin tone, even though it’s pretty warm, I think it’s even better quality than the Rock Chick palette πŸ™‚

Haul: My Spellbound Nail Lacquers , Fall Collection arrived, and they are beautiful. I purchased some gorgeous eyeshadow from ColourPop. They are simply amazing. The quality and pigmentation are top notch and the price is unbelievable. I’ll be ordering more for sure. I also ordered Tarnished eyeliner by MAC.
Weekend plans: Movie with a friend.
Favorite Berry: Blueberry

Haul: Sephora eyshadow in Planet Earth; L’oreal Silkissime eyeliner pencils in plum and cobalt. I had a makeover at Sephora today, because I had a free one coming and felt like being pampered, so I have a couple future hauls to contemplate. MUFE eyeshadows in several shades of purple WILL be involved.

Weekend plans: Not sure, but I always have housework.

Favorite berry?: Marionberry

I loved it. The MUA listened, and did basically a more dramatic version of my style. I got to try some products I’ve never used, learned about some primers that would work better with my oily skin, and I got some good tips. I loved all the pretty purple and burgundy MUFE shadows. She used 5 MUFE shadows, plus UD Lace and a black cream base on the lids under the Electric Purple. The finished looked was gorgeous, though!

The only thing I didn’t like was the Pantone foundation scanner. It came up several shades too dark, and somewhat too warm. I loved the Marc Jacobs gel foundation I chose to try, but I disagree with the MUA that the color was perfect to even out my face and neck colors to match. I wore it all day, in 4 different types of lighting, and I just didn’t think it was a match. But at least it didn’t look like an oompa-loompa mask, either, so it was wearable all day.

Haul: A few Nyx lip products. The slim lip pencil in Ever, the Butter Gloss in Sugar Cookie, and two of the new Simply Vamp lip creams in Bewitching and Temptress.

Weekend Plans: Visiting my brother at college.

Favorite Berries: Raspberries and blackberries

I hauled the new Urban Decay holiday lip set (waiting for it to show up) and OCC’s new holiday set of their multi use cosmetic pencils, which I have already been loving. I am waiting for Tarte and Too Faced to load their holiday sets on Sephora so I can grab those two lips sets as well!

My weekend plans are not set because I can give birth at any moment – so some light house cleaning and lots of naps until it is time for Gaia to appear.

I love all berries, but I love blackberries the best. Why can’t there be a true blackberry juice colored lipstick? That would be epic. Maybe I’ll mix a little Pagan with a little Black Dahlia and see what happens…

I got the lipstick set, too, too! It was supposed to be here today, but I got someone else’s order πŸ™

Congrats on your upcoming baby!

Haul: MUFE Neon Pink eyeshadow =) and Deborah Lippmann’s 12th Street Rag polish from her New York Marquee Collection, which is the most beautiful metallic nail polish I’ve ever used!
Weekend plans: My daughter’s boyfriend is visiting with us from Maryland (the opposite coast!!) until next Friday… so who knows what kind of trouble we’ll get into?? πŸ˜‰
Favorite berry?: I love strawberries and blueberries equally!

Enjoy your time with family, Christine!

Just a heads up, Christine, I noticed the same error today when I replied to a post. Some of the ads are also creating a weird “shiver” effect when I type, so I’m thinking it may have something to do with the coding on one of them.

Haul- Nothing this week, but I placed an order with UD so I’ll have some pretties next week!
Weekend plans- Waiting for the cable guy to show up and fix my tv sometime between noon and 5 pm…..
Berries- raspberries covered in real whipped cream

Haul: Urban Decay Naked 3 (though it’s still in transit), MAC Angel and CB96 and bareMinerals Raise the Bar (my first bareMinerals lipstick, and I’m very impressed).
Weekend plans: my uncle and his family are visiting.
Favourite berry: not much of a berry fan (unless cherries count?) but I’ll go with blackberry because I can pick some of the wild growing ones on my walking route.

Haul: tarte fall blush set (4 blushes!)
5 makeup geek shadows (my 1st ones!)
Makeup geek blush in spell bound!
Kat von d. Lock it tattoo foundation (was Almost out)
4 lip Tars
Last but not least, my glossy box just arrived!

Plans: try to rest!!


Haul: UD Mrs Mia Wallace lipstick and liner, Mac Taupe Blush, and Mac Craving lipstick — so pretty, I don’t know why I never bought it before!
Weekend Plans: Try to clean up some, and relax.
Favourite berry?: Strawberries

Haul: one of the new Dior 5 Couleurs, Cuir Cannage; Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick in Avenue; Chantecaille Luminous Lip Gloss in Mulberry; Milani Bella shadow in black; Milani
Plans: restaurant week starts Sunday here and we have a reservation for a fancy place
Favorite berry: raspberry, but I also love red currant – and I have never found it since I moved to the US!

Can i pretend the week ended Fri, so this is a new haul? Sat got a big fat buncha brushes @ Ulta. Guess that puts my fantasy son (Wayne Goss) on the back burner until next year. RT was buy one, get one 50%. Got sets. Having mild problems understanding the duo fibers. As was Japonesque (got a single + the brush cleaner.) And an IT collection, They ARE soft + nice (but no Wayne G.) Total damage of 18 brushes. Now i can play @ technique, rather than color acquisitions. Like the short fat handle on the japonesque, kinda like the Billy B I got from Beautylish. It almost seems to be made for a man’s hand. The price was right, with coupon, etc. Being a sale ho, ordered 4 balm blushes from Hautelook: 50% off + shipping was surprisingly reasonable. Got the three plums + toile, the strawberry red. hey, i’m off until Rocky Horror Reds. friends have picked up VGRihanna 2 and it looks great on both, and they are of highly different coloring, maybe NW 15 + NC 45 or greater. Neat shade.

I usually think Sunday through Friday, so FFHF is the end of the week for my “hauling” period πŸ˜€

Happy to hear the IT brushes are nice!

Haul: NARS Sheer Matte in Deauville, NARS Blush in Dolce Vita (BACK UP!), a bunch of Wet ‘n’ Wild lipsticks.
Weekend plans: Work, homework, school on Sunday. Yay and such.
Favorite berry?: All of them. Except blueberries. They’re weird.

Haul: Urban Decay Subversion and Perversion mascara duo, Tarte Lights Camera Lashes mascara, The Body Shop camomile cleansing butter πŸ™‚
Weekend plans: English paper and plenty of reading! Hello university life
Favorite berry?: Strawberries!!

Haul: I broke my September no-buy and ordered the Hourglass blush palette. 8% cashback from Ebates and knowing the quality of the product? Not even sorry.
Weekend Plans: Writing a paper psychoanalyzing Fat Amy for my class.
Favorite Berry: Strawberry or Blueberry

Haul: I did some major damage by my standards! Finally got my my first sephora online order which took about two weeks. It included sephora pro precision blush brush 73 and a pro concealer brush blus a bonus smashbox bb cream sample I can’t wait to try. From MAC: Mineralize skin finish, pro longwear eyeliner in “rich experience,” pro long wear concealer, rebel lipstick and Rihanna viva glam 2 gloss (which went so great with rebel!). I tried to buy a NARS audacious lipstick but about half of them (including Anna) were sold out at two different sephora locations. Between that and the hourglass blush set only being available to rouges, sephora just won’t take my money! πŸ˜‰

Weekend plans: cleaning and organizing to get wedding gifts put away πŸ™‚ And start plotting Christmas gifts.. I want to buy the UD lipstick set for someone since I have too many already!

Favourite berry: blueberries

Haul: Charlotte Tilbury; lipstick, Hepburn Honey, Filmstar Bronze & Glow, Wonderglow & Feline Flick
Dior; BAR & Carre Bleu nail polishes, NARS Audacious lipstick, Charlotte, Chanel; Bronzing Base

Weekend plans: Tying up loose ends & packing for a trip starting next weekend

Favorite berry?: Raspberries

At my house, we call that “blobbin’ out”.

Haul: I indulged a bit in Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty Steals – Urban Decay BB cream in light and illuminating and Butter nail polish in HRH (for my friend) and Wallis (for me). Also, NYX Simply Vamp Lip Cream in Covet, Benefit Majorette blush, and the three new Milani lipsticks – they are so nice!

Weekend Plans: Ballet (rehearsals are starting now for the recital at the end of the year, which is super exciting!), submitting two articles for review *bites nails*

Favourite berry? I can’t choose! If you put a cartoon gun to my head though, I’d probably say blueberries πŸ™‚

Haul, an all MAC one, all from Artificial Wilderness, Taupe blush, or maybe I should say contour as that is what I use it for, and it’s really good. Breaking Ground Cream Colour Base, eye shadows in Marsh, Stony and Artificial Earth, Shitaki lipstick and Explicit Lipglass. I also got Silver Mirror and Jet Boy lipglasses. I sort of went for ugly pretty πŸ™‚
I really like this collection a lot. I’ve been using Shitaki every day since I got it.
Weekend plans, Cleaning, doing laundry and going to a burlesque fleamarket. I know how odd is that! I just have to check it out.
Favourite berry, I can’t chose, I love berries. If I have to, wild strawberries, blackberries, No, I’d just make a long, long list πŸ™‚
Mellan is adorable, he has a bowtie! So cute!
I’ve found about 20 typos in this. Sorry if there are any left, I guess I’m a bit tired.
Have a fantastic Sunday, all of you!

Haul: Urban Decay Vice 3. Fresh Sugar lip treatment.

Weekend Plans: Picking up the unsold pieces from my latest gallery show and finding a place to store them.
