Comments on this post are closed.
On your rec I got the benefit Cheeky spot Blush they’re the perfect shades for my skin colour.
This weekend I’m going to sleep in and I really don’t like candy.
Have a nice weekend! 🙂
Haha, that comment makes me sound like such a Halloween Grinch.
Haul: Lemme think… Bourjois eyeshadow. And some pharmacy cosmetics.
Weekend plans: Expat Fair! That ought to be fun 🙂
What’s your favorite candy bar?: Kinder Bueno!
Love hearing about favorite candies from around the world 😀
love kinder too!!
Haul: 10 Lip Geek Lipsticks from Makeup Revolution in Happy Girl, Dream About Success, Baby Doll, Dare to be Different, Lips That Won’t Lie, Marshmallow Kiss, Totally not Boring!, Just Have Fun, Caught Myself Smiling and Ken Will Want Me. They’re so cheap but the quality’s amazing.. my new love! Last night I also ordered No Faux Pas Lipstick from Mac’s Heirloom collection, Nostalgia pressed pigment and Modest blush. Along with that I ordered the two Objects of Affection pigment sets in Pink+Rose and Bronze. I had really hard time choosing between the Bronze set and the Beige+Gold one but I just thought ah… Bronze had more warm coppery tones, so let’s grab that one. Now I’m just waiting for the order to arrive. (Exciting days!)
Weekend Plans: Well my parents and I are visiting my brother and his girlfriend tonight for dinner and since it’s Halloween I’ll be on Halloween door duty. Then for Sunday and Saturday I’ll be getting on with my essay that I was supposed to start this week but haven’t even done the necessary reading for… oopss…
Favorite Candy Bar: Um I really like Hershey’s white chocolate with those crunchy cookie bits. Best thing ever.
Very nice lip haul, Alex! What colors have you worn so far?
I have worn Dream About Success and it’s a good dupe for MAC Sweet & Sour, and I love that! Baby Doll and Marshmallow kiss are beautiful nude pinks so they’ll be a go to. But the one that I love the most is Lips That Won’t Lie – it’s a cool, mauve/brownish nude that’s not too dark and not too light. A little like the Myself lipstick from MAC but a shade darker and more pigmented. My new fave <3 (Actually wearing it with today's look!)
Very nice! Glad they’re working out!
Haul: I ordered a few nail polishes from the winter Zoya collection, they are supposed to come tomorrow. Loreal Infallible Eyeliner Lacquer in Bronze and a Sally Hansen black matte nail polish.
Weekend plans: My best friend’s bechelorette party on Saturday!
What’s your favorite candy bar?: Kit Kat.
Have a blast at the party, Agata!
Haul: Nothing (though I nearly bought a 2nd shade of the Clarins Ombre Matte eyeshadow!)
Weekend plans: going to try the gym tomorrow morning (I’ve had BPPV – a type of vertigo – and so I’ve backed off the gym and yoga!) and then seeing Wicked (finally – we’re seeing the final show in Toronto) on Sunday
Favourite candy bar: Crunchy (the one with the sponge toffee inside!) or Jersey Milk (I think that might be Canadian, but I’m not sure) To be honest, chocolate isn’t my favourite treat – I’d rather have a shortbread cookie!
oh….and I thought Mellan was dressing up as a Chow Chow!
SERIOUSLY! My cousin has a Chow and Mellan reminded me of her for a second hahaha
Hope you feel better, Mariella!
Wicked is a great show! Enjoy!
Haul: earrings from Parfois
Weekend plans: at home!
What’s your favorite candy bar?: none! hahahaha!

Hope you love both of your new polishes 🙂

Awww!! That is so cute! He looks just like a lion!!
😀 I was thinking that his yellow coat would work well as a lion!
LOL for cute pic! I laughed so hard!!!
Haul: Saving makeup budget for Sephora’s 20% off!!! Skincare business still needs to be taken care of. I’m gettting Origin’s Mega bright serum and Estee Lauder Rosy Prism Gel.
Weekend plans: Sketches, layout, everything a design student needs to do.
What’s your favorite candy bar?: Take 5!
What’s on your preliminary sale list so far?
Ooooh that’s a pretty long list….
– MUFE studio case (Finally! and yeah I can’t let this slip away… )
– Bite Beauty Best Bite Remix
– UD Eyeshadow primer in Original (running low on my Nars, and I kinda want a different one this time)
– DIOR Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Set (5-color mini eyeshadow palette and full size mascara, what’s not to love! (that’ll also be my first Dior eyeshadow!)
– ESTEE LAUDER Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick Collection (I have heard good things about this lipstick line so I’m looking forward to giving it a try)
I’m still on the fence of getting a trio of MUFE artist shadow because, a)I’m not sure the “$20 off when you buy 3” could be combined with Sephora’s discount code (last time I used my 10% off code, and trying to get Buxom Mascara bar, the one you buy mascara and your choice of wand for free, but as separate items. This $11 for the wand is supposed to be taken off, but I applied my code and the $11 was added back on as an ordinary item instead. Finally I gave up and went back to the 10%).b) the studio case can definitely keep me busy for a while and I want to save the joy as other rewards later on.
I can tell you that when I had the actual F&F discount code last week that it didn’t apply to the Artist Eyeshadows as a Trio – instead, it replaced the $20 off.
Aww.. so I will have to wait till the F&F event ends. Thanks for the information!
Take 5 is mine too sooo good with the crunchy pretzel. I just had some Pretzel M & M’s and they did not have the same effect so bland. Maybe no salt?
I haven’t tried the Pretzel M & M yet. Probably Take 5 is great because of its perfect layers?
Omg! I thought it was a real lion for a second! That is hilarious!
No new purchases this week besides some Matrix Oil Wonders shampoo and conditioner… Truly great stuff, but that was it. Im just enjoyimg my purchases from last week.
Plans? Finishing the Magic Mountain… And choc bar? None really. There is this one called Luna that is coconut, chocolate and cereals or something? I love it.
My little lion! 😉
Glad you’re enjoying your purchases from last week. Any favorites?
The Cle de Peau palette and Black Dahlia… Omg… Im thinking on getting the Stellar Gaze too. Such a lovely product. So well crafted and curated. Really beautiful.
Lovely, lovely! So happy to hear. 🙂

Fave candy bar: This is tough!! I think it’s between 3 Musketeers and KitKats
Happy Halloween, Rikki!
Haul: I only picked up Courting Chic Cremesheen Glass from Heirloom Mix, La Vie En Rouge, and Tom Ford Planitum cream eyeshadow!

Haul: I am about to purchase the 6-piece LM Caviar Stick set and NARS Digital World, and I am going to blame you for both (TEMPTALIA MADE ME DO IT)!
Weekend plans: A little stroll in the city center as well as some blog-related work. Otherwise, I am very determined to just kick back. It’s been a hell of a week!
What’s your favorite candy bar?: Snickers, too! I also like Twix, but Snickers has always been my favorite. Annnd now you’re making me want Snickers 🙂
NICEEE! I think you will love them both 🙂
Sooo apparently I got overexcited for nothing. SpaceNK doesn’t ship NARS out of the UK, and from what I can see, it’s the only retailer here that carries the set. I’ll have to devise a really clever way of laying my hands on Digital World!
Say it isn’t so! 🙁
Mellan looks so cute in his costume!
Haul: Nothing.. I’m waiting for the Sephora sale!
Weekend plans: Clean the house on a rainy Saturday, then out for a proper English tea with a friend on Sunday.

omg MELLAN is the cutest! He’s such a happy boy 🙂
Haul: i went overboard this week!!! Got the bite pencil set, the vice palette, UD ultra definition finishing powder (surprisingly life-changing), chanel dentelle precieuse, maybelline maple kiss lipstick (gift from a friend!), hourglass veil mineral primer, six sephora eye pencils, andddd i got a rouge g for my sister for our 30th birthday (we’re twins! and our birthday was 6 months ago, oops). I’m really jealous and i want it now, lol. I’m on what they call a NO BUY right now… I don’t even think I’m going to take advantage of the Sephora 20% off next week, lol.
Weekend plans: Halloween festing tonight.. drinking and handing out candy. The weather is yuck so not sure if we are gonna hit up a bar or not.
Candybar.. hmm.. I’m not really into candy bars that much. Snickers are decent, and I used to really like the Nestle Aero bars that you used to only be able to get in Canada… I think the recipe changed, or my palate did since I was in 4th grade, lol.
He is a darling! 🙂

Maleficent! Blast from the past 😀
Mellan is so, so cute!!
When I saw the pic of Mellan on Instagram I giggled! My husband asked what I was laughing over and I showed him. It elicited a “cute” which is high praise coming from him!

Great haul, Meghan! How are you liking the Night Owl palette?
Haul: Not much. A couple of Nyx Primal Colors (Hot Pink and Hot Fuchsia), a new beauty blender, the Rachel Roy Eos lip balms.
Weekend plans: Take down Halloween decorations & clean house.
What’s your favorite candy bar?: Degoba Organic Dark Chocolate Lemon-Ginger Bar.
Mellan’s lion costume is perfect. He looks great!
What are you planning to use the Primal Colors for, Rachel?
I was really pleased with how the costume turned out, other than it being too big – but it’s one of the better-looking costumes on him!
I ended up using the Hot Pink on my cheeks for my broken dolly makeup. I mostly bought them to try the Primal Colors out. They’re pretty impressive. A lot of the colors were out due to Halloween, but I may pick up some more when they’re back in stock, just for funsies.
How fun 🙂 They looked interesting when I saw ’em at ULTA once!
Q; Who was that lion I saw you with? A: That was no lion, that was Mellan.
Recent haul items: MJ Skyliner Collex, By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Black Matte, Chanel Vernis Sweet Star, NYX lippies in Trickery and Wrath. Went into Ricky’s to get Black Sesame lippie– and all I can say is Ricky’s on Halloween? What was I thinking?
Weekend plans– Summer clothes to storage– hopefully a movie and some exercise.
Am off of sweets and starches now. But no cravings for candy bars. Macaroni and cheese– please.
LOL! I cannot imagine going to Ricky’s on Halloween. Must be a madhouse!
Haul: MAC Rebel, Craving, & Studio Fix Powder.
Weekend plans: Lots of homework, show my classmates around the museum I work at on Sunday.
What’s your favorite candy bar?: It’s really hard to choose just one, but I’ll say three musketeers.
Mellan is to die for in that second photo, I could just eat him up! Sooo cute!
Great MAC lipstick picks!
Mellan is such a darling dog! So cute.
Haul, I went into a local makeup store and found Clarins Ombre Matte Eyeshadow, I got no 5 and I love it. THey had a GWP if you bought two items from Clarins, so I just had to, and I got the lengthening mascara. The GWP was quite nice, Moisture Rich Body Lotion, Gentle Foaming Cleanser, HydraQuench Cream, all in generous tubes and also an Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 01.
I also bought An eyeshadow from L’Oreal Smoky 306 and an eyeshadow from Makeup Store, Rosso Asia(go?) I tore the lable when I removed the theft alarm thingy.
I got an order containing two Jouer Essential Lip Enhancer and a pearl Lip Enhancer in Peach Pearl, this is my favourite lipbalm.I also got Medieval from Lipstick Queen. Love it, for me it’s almost a MLBB. Very good for the days I want redder lips than my own, but don’t want to go opaque. A blottle of Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser also made it’s way to me in that order.
I got my Glossy Box for October, not the best one, And I’m not sure if I should include it, as technically I didn’t decide on anything in it, but I have to ask, if anyone has made it this far, if anyone has used Makeup Store’s High Tech Lighter. I got it in Space, and it’s black,and very creamy so I can’t use it on my eyes as it would crease within 15 minutes. It’s described as a creamy product that can be used to lighten areas, ergo as a highlighter, but this darkens, it is shimmery, but looks dirty. It didn’t look good on the lips either I just find it odd, but would love to hear if anyone has any experience using this. In that package was also a blush So Susan, and a lip cheek tint from MeMeME Cosmetics.
Weekend, nothing out of the ordinary.
Candybar, hard to answer, I like so many. If I really have to chose, I’d pich Anton Berg Marzipan Loaf, I love the one with cognac flavour.
Leangthy as always, sorry for keeping you!
Clarins is an underrated brand, I think! 🙂 I just don’t hear a lot about them.
Wish I could help you re: Makeup Store’s High Tech Lighter, but fingers crossed someone else can!
The Clarins products I got are really good. I think Clarins stays away from the very flashy ad campagnes (sp?). I have some skincare from them that I like a lot, and a few eyeshadows. Their BB cream didn’t work for me, the lightest colour was way to dark, so I gave it to my SIL. She loves it.
I Googeled the Makeup Store product. It’s available in a lot of colours and you can use it as a highlighter, though the black I got made my skin look as if I had glittery blackheads. So not a nice look 🙂
You can use it on lips, as a tacky base for eyeshadows, but then you had to really pack on the eyeshadow or it would crease. you could blend it with bodylotion as well. You could also use oit to blend with other products, Some seemed to love it others didn’t like it quite as much.
A bit like a cream base, as it doesn’t dry I wouldn’t like it as a highlighter, my hair tends to stick to creamy things. I will try it as a base foreyeshadows, but I have oily lids and without a primer everything creases very quickly. Will still be interesting to see if it works.
I love the pup and the costume is great!
Haul: Hourglass Primer A friend emailed me a 20% off code yay!
Plans: hair appointment, groceries & tons of moving related chores
Candy: Hershey Bars (in the freezer) 🙂
Yay for coupons 🙂
Awww so freakin cute!! 🙂
Haul: ysl glosses, lancome eyebrow pencil
Weekend plans: not sure yet.. maybe just some errands & a flea market
What’s your favorite candy bar?: kinder, aero & this dark chocolate with marzipan one but I can never remember the name
Which YSL glosses did you get?
i got the gloss trio, it had a gold, baby pink & a rosey color (#1, 2 &19). This is my 1st time trying the ysl glosses & I’m really happy with them. If you don’t have those colors yet, you should get it, I think you’ll really like’em too 🙂
So strange.. I wouldn’t have thought that many people did NOT like chocolate. I can’t get enough of it lol, it’s my kryptonite and cuz of you, its all I’ve been thinking about haha
Nice! The trio is an awesome way to try ’em 🙂
Haul: Clinique Take the day off cleansing balm, Dior Night 1947 nail polish, Bobbi Brown Smokey eye liner brush (I guess it is that one)
Weekend plans: Zumba party, and the usual weekend stuff.
What’s your favorite candy bar?: Twix
Have fun at the Zumba party!
I just ordered 2 Nars Audacious Lipsticks in Claudia and Anna (I can’t stop buying these!) And the Too Faced Carousel. At Ulta I got the smoked palette because it was $29 plus 20% off, it cosmetics cc cream and tight line mascara and the Too Faced Sugar and Spice palette!
How many Audacious Lipsticks are you up to now, Krista?
HAPPY HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!! 🙂
Happy Halloween, Mimi!
Mellan has to be the best dressed dog. Celebrity sighting: I saw the actor Taye Diggs taking his son trick and treating in TriBeCa this afternoon on my way home from work. Only in NY. Haul: Took advantage of the Nordstrom’s10% off sale last week. I got the Bobbi Brown LE shimmer brick in Copper Diamond and Bronze, Estée Lauder blush in Wild Sunset and Estée Lauder concealer. Mac pigment sets -Blue, Rose and Gold sets. Finally received my Guerlain holiday meteorites today from Nordstrom – Perles D’Etoile.
Staying home, resting and making my Sephora list.
Favorite candy: it’s a tie – M & M w/ peanuts and Godiva chocolate covered almonds.
It’s awesome that celebrities take their kids out trick-or-treating like normal people – it’s nice to have a reminder of it! 🙂
Weekend plans: relax…maybe shop a little
Fave candy bar: Snickers (once upon a time it used to be Zero…that white chocolate nougat is too sweet for me now!)
Enjoy your weekend, Toni! 🙂
OMG Mellan is too cute in his Lion’s costume!! Awww
I love the lion costume! Mellan is so cute. That first photo cracks me up.
Haul: Nothing – waiting for the Sephora 20% off sale next week!
Weekend plans: Husband and I are going to a dog behavior class tomorrow. We don’t have a dog 🙁 , but we volunteer at the Humane Society :-). We’re going to walk dogs afterwards. Other than that, I don’t know. I just discovered a novelist named Sarah Rayne, and I’ve been burning through her books – so good! So I’ll probably be doing a lot of that, too.
What’s your favorite candy bar?: I’m more of a baked goods kind of girl, but I like Take 5 and dark chocolate Milky Way.
It’s nice of you to volunteer, Pteetsa 🙂 I’m sure the dogs very much appreciate it!
Mellan makes an adorable lion! Our chihuahua Piper dressed as Wonder Woman today, although I have to admit that we have so many costumes from past Halloweens that I had a hard time deciding which to dress her in today. I love to buy dog clothes, it is a secret obsession. 🙂
On the people front: Haul: I had a great time shopping today, went to Ulta and picked up a bottle of Philosophy’s Purity Made Simple cleanser, it seems to be the only thing I can find that truly makes my skin flawless. I have been using a cleansing oil from Julep and I loved the way it moisturized my skin, but I started to realize that the texture of my skin was changing, and I was breaking out all the time. Once I realized the oil was probably what was doing that, I couldn’t wait to get back to Philosophy and see if that brought my skin back to normal. I also bought a beauty blender sponge because I kept promising myself I would try one and just hadn’t, and a small bottle of Benefit’s Porefessional, I tried the tester and really liked the way my skin looked so I am hopeful about that one. A trip to Target for my ELF favorites rounded out the day, the HD setting powder and the Mist and Setting Spray were running low in my stash and I can’t live without them. I love their spray, but the sprayer on the bottle never fails to jam or spray poorly, so I always switch it over to another bottle.
Weekend plans: Catching up on housework, and working as usual.
What’s your favorite candy bar?: My new favorite is Butterfinger peanut butter cups, kind of like a blend of butterfinger candy bars mixed with Reese’s cups. MMM
Wonder Woman! Fun. Mellan was Superman (dog) once 🙂
What are some of your favorite costumes she’s worn in the past? Like a top 5?
Oh my gosh, she has so many! Earlier this week, she was wearing a little monster costume, it was purple with bright green fake fur on the hoodie, and my in-law’s dog thought she was a dog toy so he was dragging her around by the fake fur. She had to take the costume off because he just couldn’t leave it alone. Probably my favorite of her costumes would be a caterpillar, the glow in the dark skeleton, the shark costume (it looks like her head is poking out of the shark’s mouth), and a black t-shirt with glow in the dark vampire fangs that says Bite Me. Although my all-time favorite outfit is a ivory colored cashmere Coco Chanel dress with a pearl collar, but she wears that more at Christmas than Halloween. She really enjoys the attention, so she tends to wear clothes every day. Also, she gets cold easily! 🙂
Haul: Bobbi Brown Copper Diamond Shimmer Brick, Chanel Rêve D’ Orient e/s palette arrived, Chanel Blue Boy, Mica Rose & Sweet Star nail lacquers. Chanel Elegante & Craquante; Tom Ford First Time & Pussycat.
Weekend Plans : R & R, maybe start a new book
Favorite Candy Bar: Hands down—Dark Chocolate Snickers
OOH! I’m so mad – totally missed Reve d’Orient!! I should have been on that as soon as you mentioned it last week.
How is it?
I went to stockholm this week which means SEPHORA! I only got the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer there. Wrong shade but I love the formula. Also got a Make Up Store Microshadow in Cupcake, and LED Lipgloss in Atomic. Yesterday I ordered Limecrimes Venus Palette! It’s so pretty, I can’t really forgive what Doe Deere has done though…
I don’t have any plans for this weekend. Meething a friend. dans class and sleeping! Not sure about my favorite candybar, maybe Plopp!
Mellan is to cute <3
Is the shade still workable or totally wrong? Hate when that happens, though!
Both too pink and too dark, I got the shade Vanilla so now I expect Chantilly to be perfect! I’m giving this one away to a friend who lost her concealer so it’s not wasted atleast 🙂
Also it’s admirable how you answer to all your comments – one reason you’re one of my favorite bloggers!
Your lucky friend 😉 Happy that you will be able to get the perfect shade, though.
Thank you! xoxo
That’s the cutest lion i ever saw outside of safari! (No, i didn’t, unfortunately..) he is just the best, most steadfast and adorable pup ever!
Thank you 😀 My pride and joy.
