Oh I know that look πŸ˜€ With the eyebrows raised, yep yep.

Haul: Bobbi Brown holiday goodies and Revlon Gel Envy nail polish! So excited about everything.

Weekend plans: Chill with my man πŸ™‚

Favorite ice cream flavor?: Nutella! Or anything suuuuper chocolatey. But I also like sorbet ice cream a lot.

…scratches head…. Have I? Did I? Oh yes, anothe Nars Light Optimizer primer (can’t live without that stuff), Nars Oasis blush (love it almost as much as I love Sin) and few MUFE matte shadows…eggshell, dark taupe and Chocolate, but still don’t receive them.

It makes any foundation dewy. I don’t care for matte or satiny finished foundation, so I add light to it with this primer. Also prevents my foundation from creasing in fine lines. Is not thick as most primers are, so doesn’t make the foundation look conspicuous.
I know I could use some highlighter, but I love the softness this primer gives. Is not like BAM, like the Strobe Cream. Is more muted… Like your skin but just super healthy and perfected.
Lol, I could go on and on about this primer. I just love it, and cant live without.

My breakfast favorite? Omelette filled with mushrooms and cream cheese, with toasts made out of french baguette. Or any rustic french baguette toasted with avocado on it, plus my cup of pu-ehr.

Haul: Tons of hair product, Garnier facial cleansing oil (shockingly good for $6), and Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope lipstick in Black Tie. I cashed out my points and pretty much got it free, which is awesome but also says a lot about how much I shop there, haha. They’re new rewards program is hand-over-fist superior to Sephora’s, though.

Haul: Nothing this week, but last week I picked up MAC Good Kisser lipstick, got MAC Russian Red through Back-2-MAC, and I FINALLY committed to my ebay purchase I’ve been hemming and hawwing over for AGES – Guerlain Crazy Pressed Meteorites!! Gotta say I love them ALL!

Weekend plans: Study my vet nursing units, and a pyjama party on Saturday night!

Favorite ice cream flavor?: MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP

YAYYYYY! So glad you’re loving everything, Jade! Hopefully you didn’t have to spend too much for the Crazy Meteorites!

β– Haul: A bunch of NYX lip liners, Butter Glosses and Soft Matte Creams (40% off at Ulta!). I’m probably gonna take the plunge and buy the 2oz Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer and the Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot Box today.
β– Weekend plans: Between work and school, hoping to fit a visit to the Topsfield, Massachusetts Fair. SO MANY FUNNEL CAKES AND APPLE CRISPS AND FRIEND ONIONS *_*
β– Favorite ice cream flavor?: Pistachio or anything with caramel (Haagen Daaz Pralines and Cream OMG *_* )

How long is nyx 40% going to last, do you know? Are you hanging around Everett Ulta? Haven’t been there, but I worked at the Whidden in the 90s. Used to tool to Plymouth. So glad Ulta went to Braintree. But i’ll probably do another few simply vamp + simply red pencils, though mechanically, they aren’t the best… Also, other lips. Too bad Ulta doesn’t carry Nyx taupe blush. Online, there’s a lot of stuff not-in-store. + Nyx looks like the seagulls got at it, at times, + ALWAYS low stocked. budget good stuff always goes fast!

Haul: I went kind of shopping crazy – but all over the map – this week. Started with a couple pairs of high heel platform boots (which go with the tickets to see Dame Edna in January I picked up – putting the outfit together early of course LOL). Also grabbed a bunch of stuff for Halloween decorations, a bunch of movies on Amazon, that MAC book (though it hasn’t arrived and thank you again, I’m excited for that one). For makeup I got the Brooke palette, the bronzer and the blush, sculpt/shape compact thingy and FrankNFurter lipstick from RHPS. I also picked up an Estee BB I haven’t tried yet (they have three! THREE?! LOL). I keep eyeballing that Clinique Black Honey eyeshadow palette but I haven’t picked it up yet. Do you have that one yet? It LOOKS so pretty!

Weekend Plans: Folks want to go out to lunch this weekend (somewhere near but far, just to do a day trip before the weather turns too cold). That’s about it. I have more grapes to juice and a Halloween set to build so if I have time I’ll work on that.

Favorite Ice Cream Flavor: Ooh! I’m totes dairy free right now but I’ve been making my own “ice cream” with coconut milk and I make a KILLER chocolate, chocolate chip that takes just like ice cream! Either that or it’s been so long I don’t remember what ice cream tastes like anymore LOL!

You know… I’ve noticed that sometimes I use these Friday posts to review my week – what I’ve done – and write out my plans for the weekend. Haha! So thanks for keeping me better organized πŸ˜‰

I don’t have it! Clinique said they were going to try and get one for me, but that was a few weeks ago so my guess is they weren’t able to find one!

Haul: B-day gifts for my Mom: SEPHORA COLLECTION Crystal Nail File in Purple and Look Sharp Pencil Sharpener, Bite Beauty Luminous Crème Lipstick Duo in Neutral.
For me: Too Faced Melted Kisses and Urban Decay Full Frontal Lipstick Stash Set.

Unfortunately my UBFull Frontal Lipstick Stash Set came with a duplicate F-Bomb so I’m going to have to exchange in Store or get a refund in returning it. Annoying because the close Sephora is 2 hours away and shipping it back would cost me $13. πŸ˜›

Weekend plans: Still more patio work (it never ends!)

Favorite ice cream flavor?: Wasn’t this asked last week. lol Still chocolate anything though. πŸ˜‰

The only thing is it has to be real maple syrup. It’s funny, but I grew up only having the real stuff and real OJ, that I cannot do the fake stuff for either. Like it’s a totally different taste!

Haul: UD Vice 3 & Kat von D Star Studded palettes; I like them both, and will get a lot of use from both, but I’m not in love with either…

Plans: I’m not sure yet, but there’s likely to be some online shopping, LOL! A few things I’ve been wanting are completely sold out at local stores, and it’s going to be another hot weekend, so I don’t want to travel too far…

Ice Cream Flavor: There are several that I love, but I’ll have to go with Vanilla; it just goes with everything!

I don’t know if I just have too much eyeshadow, or I’m simply getting jaded, but eyeshadow palettes just don’t seem to rev my motor, anymore… Ironically, I just picked up the MAC Brooke Shields palette today (apparently there are still quite a few at the Macy’s/Westfield Culver City Mall!), as well as the tarte Bon Voyage set, a coupke of hours ago, LOL! I haven’t had a chance to play yet, but at least I’ll have something to do this weekend!

I’m still debating the big LORAC palette, but I don’t think I’ll be disappointed if I can’t grab it…

Kat von D studded lip set, OCC eye/lip set, UD full frontal lip stash, Bobbi Brown Ibazi lipstick, lancome Rose lipstick, mac oblivion & frank n furter lipstick, Becca SSP gold, guerlain excessive rose lipstick. WHEW…..

Weekend plans:
Movies & rest

Fav ice cream:
Pistachio almond

Haul: Clinique Curviest Caramel – which is probably the closest thing I have to my natural lip colour, though it pulls a bit pinker than my lips – I like the formula so it’ll probably be one of my go to everyday colours from now on. πŸ˜€
Weekend plans: Just relax, hopefully. Maybe start part time job hunting.
Favourite ice cream flavour?: Pistachio.

Haul: Rocky Horror Picture Show madness! MAC Crazed Imagination blush, Riff Raff palette, Sin lipstick, Obilivion lipstick, Franknfurter lipstick, Strange Journey lipstick, Vino lipliner, B Greasepaint Stick, Black Greasepaint Stick, Bad Fairy Nail Lacquer, It’s Not Easy Having a Good Time pigment, Gold glitter, Old Gold pigment, Sculpt and Shape, mixing medium, and clear lipglass.
Weekend plans: Write a development lit review, go shopping, watch Rocky Horror Picture Show again, and play with my massive and exciting haul! (Biggest and best haul ever!)
Favorite ice cream flavor?: Vegan GF Cookie Dough

Haul: Anastasia brow whiz pencil, tarte in a deep purple shade and it an it cosmetics cheek stain (lovely, but if you buy one and you’re fair like me use a light hand!)

Weekend plans: relaxing

Favorite ice cream flavor: the Ben and Jerry’s chocolate peanut butter you can get at their ice cream parlors….nothing compares!

No problem πŸ™‚ I used the same amount I usually do and it was soooooooooo intense! I tried to tone it down with powder but it was still pretty bright.

Mac blush x1, Mac lip conditioner, ordered Mac book on Amazon.
Relax this weekend and see some movies on cable and of course play with the boys.

Hugs and kisses for the gorgeous Mellan. Have a great weekend Christine.

Haul: Just received my Tarte Pin Up Girl Palette in the mail yesterday along with NARS velvet lip pencil in Train Bleu. SO happy with both purchases.

Weekend Plans: Finished reading Gone Girl last week and have my tickets to watch the movie tomorrow πŸ™‚


I read that book a few weeks ago, it’s probably the fastest I’ve ever read a book! I’m going to see the movie tomorrow..hope it’s good!

I’m currently recovering from a major accident that’s left me with some facial fractures and head trauma, so I won’t be doing much of ANYTHING anytime soon.

I did receive my Sephora order this week -just some BeautyBlender cleanser and the new Too Faced UNDER THE MISTLETOE kit and I ordered the BAD FAIRY nail polish from the Rocky Horror release from Mac—just need to get into the store to pick it up, but I’m not in any hurry.

While I’m homebound, I’m all about the snack-ies, and am loving the Haagen Daas Gelatos right now…Limoncello and Stracciatella are my favs!!!

Oh, that is terrible, Donna! I hope you are well on your way to recovery and have some pain management working out for you. Get well soon!

HEY, hope you don’t have to have facial reconstruction. That’s a simply dreadful + horrible thing, a major MVA … and we all wish you up + about with no pain as soon as possible. I suppose the good news, if you could call it that, is that despite having a CHI, you avoided TBI! (and i feel like an ass for saying it, but it’s so true.) And that’s worth more than anything. Best of luck.

That’s awful. I want to ask for your address to send you a gift but I can’t because it’s public, so here’s an imaginary internet gift. Feel better!

Thank you all for the GW wishes–it is most appreciated! While I know my physical appearance is temporary, it is messing with my psyche and emotions right now because I look ghastly! I can only hope that there are no permanent effects. It’s gonna be a long, slow and hard recovery (months NOT weeks, as first thought….)

I had a similar experience last year, and I had to learn how to walk again. I totally understand all the emotions you must be feeling. I know Christine’s blog helped me get through the boredom! πŸ˜‰ Best of luck to you Donna!

I got the Tamanna palette by ABH, a Clarisonic kit & I’m expecting my Hourglass blush palette today! I’m already thinking of placing another Sephora order for the Marc Jacobs eye liner set & Parisienne palette – they look gorgeous!

Just realized I forgot to answer the other questions… Hah! πŸ˜€

weekend plans: go for a run with my mom & brother!
best breakfast food: eggs benedict!! <3

Haul: Just a couple Stila liners from Hautelook (periwinkle and peacock)

Weekend plans: Renaissance Festival tomorrow and Container Store & Furniture shopping on Sunday
Best Breakfast: chorizo and hash

Yeah! I really like this formula personally. It’s been interesting to see people either have a lot of luck with it or almost none. I am a bit concerned though by people saying that the minis packaging leaves something to be desired. But if it’s a packaging issues then they will definitely be returned!

Best breakfast food?: French Toast is my fave too! Oh and bacon!

Haul: MAC Brooke Shields Gravitas Palette, MAC Brooke Shields Lipglass in Artful, MAC eyeshadow in Natural Wilderness… I was going to get the 2 Lipglasses (De-Nude and Obviously Bare) but the reason I went shopping in the first place was to get some comfortable shoes for the fall season and I still ended up walking out with a MAC bag full of goodies! (Oh, did I mention that the Gravitas palette was the LAST ONE at the counter? That makes a girl way more happy than a cute pair of shoes, right?!)

Weekend Plans: I think that I really need to catch up on my academic life… I guess it’s just books for me..

Best breakfast food, I normally eat yoghurt with muesli, but the best is pancakes. I like mine with sugar and maybe e bit of butter.
Mellan is so sweet!

This glossybox was pretty good. My 3-month subscription just ran out and I’m not sure if I’m going to renew or not though. Unfortunately with my super sensitive skin I can’t use a lot of the skincare products subscription boxes send.

I haven’t tried out any of the Julep stuff yet (never tried their brand, got this box free!) but it all looks promising.

Christine, I only have Kat Von D Shadeshifter eyeshadows, yet always remained curious about her palettes and other products..

Best breakfast food?: Rockin Wellness Shake. (I so totally remember French Toast! I used to down 12 pieces easily! My metabolism is an enigma! I don’t eat it anymore. Processed foods make me sick and I’d want it the best way I know it, unfortunately no substitute yet) πŸ™‚
I’d also like to ask all if you could please send positive thoughts, prayers, energy, to my mother? _/|\_ She’s having a hard time and ILoveYou her more than anything. I can’t bear to think of her not here.. Please. Kbow my genuine appreciation, love and gratitude, is eternally with you. Thank you. Be well~

I don’t think you’d like it if you like the KVD Shadeshifters, because the texture is a lot softer and more powdery in this palette.

I LOVE Vice 3! Last year, I returned Vice 2 because there’s no way I could have pulled off many of those colors. Vice 3 and I? We’re going to be good friends! πŸ˜€

Weekend plans: I’m hoping to photograph some clothing and shoes I’ve had for years but haven’t worn. Many still have the price tags attached. I want to get them up on eBay and try selling as much as possible before Christmas.

The kids and I haven’t seen much of him the last few weeks. I’m not sure what we’ll do. The weather forecast says sunny with highs in low 80s F, so probably something outdoors before the rain comes back.

Best breakfast food?: French toast made with homemade bread cut into thick slices, left over night to go stale, then battered in egg, milk, some powdered sugar and real vanilla extract. Served with butter and warm maple syrup, and a side of crispy bacon.

I’m also waiting on some LA Girl Pro Concealers (finally decided to try them) and a Torrid order of riding boots, jeans and flats…whoa…

I have only used the face brushes but so far they are great. The duo fiber is great for highly pigmented blushes and clearing fallout and the cheek blush is great for blush. I haven’t used the eye brushes and I love the silver handles.

Haul: Nothing again this week – still saving for a few things (now new pointe shoes added to the list T_T)

Weekend plans: ballet rehearsals, thesis, tutoring some students…usual stuff!

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in custard, Mufe mat velvet foundation, smashbox pore minimizing primer, too faced melted kisses holiday set, sephora favorites draw the line set, Anastasia Tamanna eyeshadow palette, MAC sin lipstick and MAC velvet teddy lipstick, Hourglass ambient lighting blush in mood exposure and I am absolutely in love with all of those products. And lastly too faced set with the three “shimmering” la creme lipsticks which I will be returning, they look so bad and are way too light in my opinion, I think I’m going to get a NARS velvet matte lip pencil with my store credit, I love the two I have in Walkyrie and Cruella, really want Train Bleu a deep aubergine color. Have you ever tried those? Oh! and two fragrances NEST midnight fleur and Gucci Guilty black! It’s been a good week ahaha

Oh I forgot!

Weekend plans-Rehearsal and taking my dogs to the metro parks

Best Breakfast food-juices and smoothies and eggs and avocado with salsa

This was a busy and sad week, but it made me feel better to of course buy some makeup.. I ordered the Kat Von D holiday palette and the mini lipstick set (im hoping is going to be as good as last years set). I also ordered the benefit blush set along with urban decay perversion cream liner (first time to try this one, I was using Mac fluidline until it dried up, it was a year and a half old, but I kept stirring it to keep it going. I hope perversion is good) . Ordered the limited edition Sugarpill lucid chromalust and sparkle baby palette. The camp cosmetics kgb palette. I bought Kat Von D tattoo liner (a repurchase, as always) in store. So many pretty things popping up this time of year, it’s hard to keep up! I am hoping they release the Urban Decay LTD vice palette again, as that one looked beautiful, and I do not own hardly any of those shadows…
Weekend plans are just to take it easy and relax.
Favourite ice cream is coffee, strawberry, vanilla.
Favourite breakfast item would be French toast or waffles and strawberries.
I love Mellan’s intense look, he’s a sweetie!

I did receive the lipstick set this past week. So far I tried out wonderchild, it was sheer, and sort of flaked away during wear (?). But I do like that they are larger minis compared to last years set, although the quality was a lot better, creamier last year. I like that the line has more unusual colours, but the quality needs to be there too… So basically I feel a bit sad for the new Kat Von D lipsticks.

Haul: Tarte Pin Up Blush Palette, Hourglass Ambient Blush Palette, Real Techniques Nick’s Picks Brush Set, Sonia Kaschuk 15th Anniversary Brush Set and Kat Von D. Studded Kiss Mini Set.

Plans: On sunday we’ll vote for president in Brazil.
