Haul: It was my friend’s birthday last week, so I went a little overboard, haha. I took her to Sephora and let her choose what she wanted. For her: Tarte Dollface blush, Fresh Rose Sugar Lip Balm, a mini Hourglass liquid lipstick in Icon, and we split the Draw the Line set from Sephora (I kept the folllowing liners: Marc Jacobs Blacquer, Kat Von D Trooper, and NARS Via Veneto). For me: Maybelline Colorsensational lipsticks in Plum Perfect and Plum Paradise, Colorsensational Creamy Matte lipstick in Divine Wine, Line Stiletto liquid liner, L’Oreal True Match Lumi foundation in Sun Beige, L’Oreal Infallible Pencil liner in True Teal, Maybelline nail polishes in Midnight Show, Crushed Crimson, Twilight Rays and Purple Possibilities.

Weekend plans: I need to write several blog posts and save them as drafts. I also have a mountain of school work to complete and I would like to bake a kabocha squash pie. Kabocha squash is really sweet, so i think it’ll work in a pie.

Last movie you saw in theaters?: You are going to laugh……the final Harry Potter movie. I just don’t want to spend money on movie theater tickets. I’d rather save my money for makeup. 😛

Mellan makes a cute lion! When I saw last week’s photos, the first one was where he had his head down, and I thought “Did Christine get a new dog, a Tibetan mastiff?” Lol!

Lily Avatar

Mac foundation, Mac lipstick x1, Chanel lipstick x1, dog food and biscuits for the boys.
no plans but relax and see a couple of movies on cable.
St Vincent and Gone Girl.

xoxo for the gorgeous Mellan! He looks for cute in the pic!
Have a great weekend Christine.

Last movie you saw in theaters: Dracula Untold. (Although I liked Nightcrawler better, and I watched that recently too! :D)

Estefania Avatar

Haha I do! Her name is Phoebe and she’s silver 🙂 Our other schnauzer is my sister’s salt and pepper, and his name is Nicholas. They’re both minis!

I agree. They’re so intelligent and loyal (more so than dogs usually are!). Phoebe is a rescue, and she’s always been so protective and loving. They’re my fur babies 🙂

Kiss & Make-up Avatar

OMG Mellan makes such a cute lion 😀 😀 😀

Haul: Some Christmas collections and a new perfume

Weekend plans: Entertaining the in-laws. Which is very entertaining for them and slightly less entertaining for me.

Last movie you saw in theatres?: That was back in August when I was in Belgium. Guardians of the Galaxy.

Andrea Avatar

Look at his majesty! Sweet thing!
I’m still working on my haul…. Figuring things out. But so far investing in skin care, I got that one EL lippie (thank you!) and getting thise LM Caviar sticks for sure.

Andrea Avatar

Got what I said… Skincare backups to cover the whole year, got the LM minis at NM and CdP Stellar Gaze.. What can I do?
I cannot possibly remember the last movie I saw in theater as I don’t do that anymore. The pop corn situation annoys me greatly, so I rather wait and watch whateber at home. I am a tiny bit OCD. Just a tiny bit.
Hope you enjoy your weekend, Chris.

Alix Avatar

Weekend plans: Work mainly! Isn’t that what i always do? 😉

Last movie you saw in theatres?: I HONESTLY do not remember… could have been the Avengers?!

Jade Avatar

It was kinda stupidly awesome. I went to the ball as Maleficent, so I had a purple cut crease, massive lashes and green glitter… paired with Nightmoth and Rebel on the lips. So much awesome.

Meghan Avatar

Haul: MAC Soar lip liner & my first ever BaubleBar order! Mostly some necklaces & earrings.
Weekend plans: My in-laws leave early tomorrow morning after a 3 week visit, so I’ll be doing some cleaning, laundry, etc. My friend is also having a jewellery party tomorrow so I’ll visit with some friends.
Last movie you saw in theatres?: Alexander and the No Good Very Bad Day

Meghan Avatar

I would say start by pairing a statement necklace with a plain white/ black/ mono-coloured t-shirt or sweater. And if you’re going to wear earrings pick small/ plain studs or skip completely. You’ll start feeling comfortable in time! 😀

Haul: Inglot HD Sculpting Powders in 502, 503, 504, & 505…

Plans: Finish cleaning, and getting rid of things I no longer want/need.

Move: …I can’t remember! I don’t go to theatres very often, as I can’t stand the smell.

xamyx Avatar

EVERYTHING!!! Clothes, shoes, makeup… We just got rid of 4-5 large trash bags *filled* with mainly clothes, but there’s still MORE, LOL!

I do go through my makeup every couple of months, usually by “type”, so that shouldn’t be too big a job. I mainly want to “shop” my stash, and after the start of the New Year, go on a “low-buy”, which means with the exception of a few stragglers on my list, and the quarterly NARS collections, I will only buy something that is “kick-me-in-the-head” fantastic.

Jennifer Avatar

Haul: L’Oreal Voluminous butterfly mascara, L’Oreal Voluminous miss manga mascara, Maybelline The Falsies black drama mascara, Maybelline Colossal cat eye mascara, Nails Inc nail polish in Baker Street, MAC brush cleanser, MAC lipstick in CB 96 (i finally was able to back to mac some stuff and got this one for free :))

Weekend plans: Nothing specific but a couple of my best friends are getting married next Friday so everything revolves around that event. I am making tops for all the bridesmaids that say “I can’t keep calm, I am the bridesmaid”. For her bachelorette party I made her a shirt like that saying “I can’t keep calm, I am the bride” and she loved it so much that now she wants all the girls to have those.

WARPAINTandUnicorns Avatar

Haul: One of the more satisfying $160 spent in a while with Camera Ready Cosmetics Makeup. I was just going to order from Purely Cosmetic my Diamond powder, but they charge $35 for shipping to Canada as a starting rate now instead of $12.

So I did a bit of pre IMATS shopping instead for items that I might not be able to get in this formate during the show.

Purely Diamond Perfect Finish (original) (never sold at Toronto IMATS)
RCMA Foundation/Concealer Palette #11(these palettes are never sold at Toronto IMATS)
RCMA Loose Powder 3oz
Ben Nye Nose & Scar Wax 8oz (never sold at Toronto IMATS)
Ben Nye Bone Simulation Wax 2oz (never sold at Toronto IMATS)

Pav Avatar

Haul : I’m too embarrassed too share. But I will for the greater good – Ambient Lighting Palette, NARS Dolce Vita & Albatross blushes, Urban Decay Rapture, NARS Autumn Leaves (I picked it up after your review, love it!). Also, thank you for the link – that site is a hidden gem 🙂
Weekend plans – Family portrait session & catching up on sleep 🙂
Last movie I saw in the theatre – An Indian movie a year ago. Toddlers and theaters don’t seem to go together!

Alex Avatar

Haul: Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette, Urban Decay Shadow Box Palette and Benefit’s Cheeky Sweet Spot . I’ll also be picking up Modesty blush from MAC because I ordered it online and they messed up my order and the blush never arrived, so I got my money back and now have to go hunt the product down myself.

Weekend Plans: Get on with the essay that I REALLY need to make a start on, but really don’t want to!

Last Movie: Jersey Boys. It wasn’t my favorite though…

Helene Avatar

Oh dear, Friday and I have to write down my slightly over the top haul, no it’s not that bad. First things first, though.
Mellan, a cute, hungry lion!
Haul: Georgio Armani, Maestro Eraser, High Precision Retoutch, I really like this combo. I finally found the eyeshadow palette I’ve been hunting at all the places that sell GA, Organica, the gorgeous(I think) one in gold and grey. This is my first GA purchase ever. The SA’s at the counter were fantastic! I had a great time, actually.
Sleek i-Divine eyeshadow palette original, Too Faced Everything Nice eyeshadow and blush holiday palette, cotton Pads, Black Opium giftbox that include an eyeliner pencil and a mascara, both in smaller size. And finally from NYX, Milk Jumbo Eye Pencil, lipliner in Purple Rain, lipstick in Aria, and an eyeshadow in Star. Of course they didn’t have the Wicked lipsticks and they didn’t know if they were going to stock them at all.
I also ordered some stuff, but I’ll report on that when the things arrive.
Weekend, watching Blizzcon. I have a virtual ticket, so it’ll be a two long nights watching panels and e-sports. So much FUN!
Last movie I saw in a theatre, one of the Twighlight movies. I think the one next to the last. I don’t often go to the cinema, I think it’s expensive, and I prefere watching movies at home where no one disturbs me with popcorn and candywrapper.

Helene Avatar

Kind of, yes. It looks really good. I just don’t like having to play with others. I love how the chars look, and I am looking forward to know more about it. The film was really sweet, I thought.
I liked the film about WoW, Looking for Group. I imagine the US servers are friendlier that the EU ones. I’d really like to play on both.
Gaming and games is a lot of fun. I’m looking forward to building my garrison and get to know more, or refresh my knowledge about the orc lore.
I love watching Blizzcon, I’d love to be able to attend in person, but it is a bit far to go for a two day event.
I’ve been rambling on, as usual, I just get so inspired by Blizzcon, happens every time. 😀

Diana Avatar

HAUL: Best Bite Beauty Remix Set, Bobbi Brown Bronze Glow Highlighter, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette, MUFE Mist & Fix, Soap & Glory Make Yourself Youthful Serum, Soap & Glory Great Kisser Lip Balm, Sephora Collection Contour Eye Pencils (in Girl Talk), Sephora Collection Long Lasting Kohl Pencils (in Mysterious Blue, Smoky Green, Mystic Purple & Infinite Beige), NARS Audacious Lipsticks (Rita, Charlotte), YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Illuminating Foundation, Clarasonic Replacement Brush Heads, MAC Del Rio Lipstick, MAC Burgundy Lipliner, Peripera Pink Juice Lip Tint
WEEKEND PLANS: no idea…my sister mentioned she wanted to see a movie but idk

Diana Avatar

My Sephora order shipped today so I should get it by Wed maybe Tues if I’m lucky. Oddly enough I’m just happy to get my Clarasonic brush replacement and my soap & glory serum, I’ve been without them for 2 weeks and my skin is not happy right now

Bronwyn Avatar

Haul: mac mineralize blush in sweet sentiment

Weekend Plans: going to a friend’s birthday party, going to van with a friend for the day tomorrow

Last movie you saw in theatres:
ender’s game

Ilovemakeup Avatar

Haul: NARS lipgloss in Corsica, the BITE beauty Remix kit, the Laura Mercier caviar stick kit, that NARS eye primer everyone loves (had been using UD primer potion but decided to give NARS a try) and the UD Naked lipstick.

Weekend plans: nada!

Last movie: The Hobbit Desolation of Smaug (my husband and I rarely see movies at the theater)

Mariella Avatar

Haul: Clarins Ombre Matte shadow in Earth, Philosophy Purity Made Simple (the foamy one in the tube), some Soap and Glory scrubs and body butters (in a gift set to give to a friend’s daughter), and I just got in from Sephora where I got Hourglass Ambient Light Powder in Ethereal (now I wish the LE one in the trio I have was available separately), a new tube of UDPP, a Marc Jacobs liner in Brown(out) – the 20% discount made the price somewhat less painful – and a Sephora one in Cappucino which is virtually the exact same colour at such a fraction of the price. I think that’s all I got but I could be forgetting in my dizzy frenzy.

Weekend plan: Gym, yoga and breaking out the slow cooker for some nice homey stuff

Last movie you saw in the theatres: My Old Lady

Mariella Avatar

I made a beef and stout stew. Hubs won’t eat pork or anything that lived on a pig since we visited by brother in law who was working on a pig farm while in Agricultural Science YEARS ago! It’s quite annoying, actually as he’s already a picky eater anyway. I do have a lovely recipe for pulled bbq’d beef and my son in law, who is a fabulous cook, makes great pulled pork. It’s one of his favourite things to cook and to eat!

The Cappucino liner is really phenomenal and so close to Brown(out) in colour and in performance that it’s hard to justify going for the pricier option but the 20% off….I figured “now’s the time”.

Sunny Avatar

Haha that’s Mellan saying:” I’m tired of playing lion now!”

Haul: Sooo I found a nice angel who is willing to ship NARS Digital World and the LM Caviar Stick set to me! Also got Bobbi Brown Black Scotch (gel liner). I think I’ll get along SO well with that shade!

Weekend plans: Some PR event tomorrow, and most probably taking photos and cleaning the house a little on Sunday.

Last movie you saw in theaters?: Maleficent actually! I hope you’ll like it!

Rachel R. Avatar

Haul: Finally got around to getting MAC Heroine. Some Hard Candy Top Ten palettes (why are these better than Kat von D’s Star Studded, Cargo’s Shanghai Nights, and Lorac Skinnies?). Eight (Well, they were only $1! ha, ha ) Profusion palettes that were at the Dollar Tree (again, why are these cheapies high quality and pigmented, while the higher end is becoming mediocre?). Morgana Cryptoria lipsticks in Maleficent and Deadite. Milani lipliner in Burgundy Blush.

Weekend plans: Trying not to kill my older son. If you hear on the news that a lady in Oregon flipped out and strangled her bipolar 19-year-old with her bare hands while wearing fabulous makeup, you know I failed.

Last movie you saw in theatres?: I think it was The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug last December. I rarely go to movies, usually 1-2 a year. I probably won’t go again till this December when the family goes to see the last Hobbit movie.

Rachel R. Avatar

I know, I ‘d heard good things about the palettes, but excellent for drugstore. Especially Profusion (never tried them before). You never know…

So far my son has lived and is at his group home again. He’ll be here for dinner tomorrow, so we’ll see . 😉

Mimi Avatar

awww.. if he showed up at our door for Halloween probably would have given him all the candy, he’s so cute.

Haul: Origins skin set, HG blush palette, Nars lip set, Sephora pencil set, nail polish
Weekend Plans: Shopping & Food with fam & friends
Last movie you saw in theatres?: wow, don’t really know.. it’s been awhile. Mayb Lucy or Edge of Tomm. Really want to see John Wick.

LU Avatar

Valerie C. Avatar

Last movie I saw in theater: Get Up (James Brown)

Becca Avatar

Haul: An E.L.F order came in the mail for me! ^-^ I also have a ShopMissA order coming in; It’s all KleanColor and E.L.F makeup. Everything on the site is a dollar so I thought it was worth trying some stuff!
Weekend Plans: My pet rat has a tumor on her neck and we’re trying to find a vet we like to help us with it. So I’ve been busy with that, sadly.
Last Movie I’ve Seen In Theaters: I don’t even remember! It might of been Evil Dead?

Veronica Avatar

Haul: Chanel Highlighting Powder Camelia de Plumes, Forever XXI Shea Butter lipgloss in Natural

Weekend Plans: working and writing!

Last movie you saw in theaters: ah man, that was a awhile back…I think it was Captain America 2

Elisa Avatar

Haul: I broke my no buy at sephora 🙁 but first I was so annoyed bc a brand new sephora opened in vancouver, bigger than the other ones in the lower mainland but they still only carried one mufe eyeshadow I waned, not worth it without the price, and didn’t carry the only Nars audacious lipstick wanted
Clinique take the day off balm…new for me
Nars phoebe…oops I already own this so I will return it for desdamona…second time I’ve purchased something from sephora that I already owned. At least this time I realized it before it was too late

Ud x, mushroom and last call shaeows
Mj jazzberry and plumage liners

Weekend: works and make pies for a late thanksgiving dinner with my family

Movie in theater: so long ago I don’t remember but we did just watch frozen and Lego movie last weekend. I had to find out what all my students were talking about

Mariella Avatar

Elisa, I keep having the same Sephora experience with the MUFE shadows. I’ve been to 2 and neither had the 2 shadows I wanted. I think the stores only have a selection. The SA was telling me that there’s a Sephora in Toronto that has a MUFE “bar” within it and she thinks they have the entire range. I’m not willing to drive to Toronto for eyeshadow (well, I sort of am but I’m terrified of driving the highway).

Elisa Avatar

The 401, if that’s the highway you would take, is terrifying. I guess when I finally pull the trigger it will have to be online. Thank goodness Christine’s swatches are so accurate.

Lulle Avatar

Haul: Boscia’s new Tsubaki hydrating maks + their mask trial kit (with several single use packets), Givenchy le Rouge in Framboise Velours, a mini Matte Creme Lip Crayon from Bite (shade Gavi), and Sephora Eye Contour liner in Tiramisu. I have stopped shopping at Sephora because of their poor customer service, but still had a lot of points, so I made my last order taking advantage of the 20% off and redeemed all my points. Now I’m completely done with them.

Week-end plans: dinner with friends, try to go for a run each day.

Last movie you saw in theatres? Guardians of the Galaxy which was hilarious. It is by far the best movie I’ve seen in the past 2 years.

Christine Avatar

Mask trial kit – I will have to look into that. Sounds awesome!

95% of my orders are fine through Sephora, but any time there IS a problem and you have to call their customer service, they always do the least. I don’t know how else to describe it, but they do the bare minimum. I’m too used to Amazon and Nordstrom, I guess.

Lulle Avatar

Ironically, I just noticed that they charged my credit card twice for the full amount of that final order :/ Both payments are still pending so I need to wait and see if one gets cancelled but I’ll be reaaaaally mad if they both post….
The last thing I want is to deal with their infamous customer service again!!

veronica Avatar

Haul: NARS Dragon Girl, NARS Deep Throat, Cover Girl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 foundation and Cover Girl TruBlend foundation (I’m trying to find a good drugstore foundation).

Weekend plans: Maybe go watch Interstellar.

Last movie you saw in theatres?: Fury

Jenn Avatar

Haul: Formula X, Guerlain Maxi Shine in Rouge Parade (woo hoo, it’s at Sephora!), Philosophy bath set (crap I forgot the name), DL nail polish. More to come tomorrow…

Weekend Plans: Making & solidifying holiday plans, R & R

Last Movie Saw in Theater: Gone Girl

Johnna Quick Owens Avatar

Haul: I got a couple of subscription boxes in the mail today, so I have lots to play with over the weekend. Probably my favorite is my Julep box, so I have two new nail colors and two new gel eyeliners to try. Also the Target Beauty Box, with lots of fun products. I really like these kind of boxes for introducing me to products I might not try alone, and colors that I wouldn’t necessarily even think to try. Gets me a bit out of my ruts!
Weekend plans: Grocery shopping, cleaning, and trying to get started on my shopping lists for Christmas.
Last movie you saw in theatres?: I can’t even remember the last movie I saw in the theater, we usually wait until they come out on DVD and buy them. I think the last theater movie might have been The Conjuring.

Jessica Weaver Avatar

Haul: Marc Jacobs Highliner set, Hourglass Diffused Light, ABH brow pencil in Granite, and tarte Exposed from Sephora. Wanted to get the 4 piece LM Cavier Stick set but it was sold out:(. Also Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex (jury’s still out) from Dermstore. Thinking about getting up a Girlatick gloss too. Picked up some great non-makeup things: Stance socks from Zappos, really beautiful floral sheet set from Wayfair, and an awesome (but ridiculously expensive) faux fur oversized throw from Pottery Barn (stayed at a hotel on Coronado that had one and just had to get one for myself!).

Weekend Plans: relaxing and waiting for the arctic blast to roll through, shopping Savers’ 50% sale, hitting up mid modern century furniture stores

Last move you saw in theaters?: I think it may have been Bridesmaids. I never go to the movies these days. I’m 32; I’m old!!
