Haul: My Silk Naturals Order arrived so I have new lipsticks! About equally excited for the Oatmeal Face Serum since it calms down my super-ruddy skin.

Weekend Plans: I have a big box of cleaning supplies in the mailroom so I’m gonna clean EVERYTHING, wipe down my cabinets and mop the floors and stuff. I am actually pretty excite.

Winter: Winter is baller! I’m a knitter, I prepare for winter all year and then I’m like “Behold my beautiful and diverse layers!” The rest of the year I just don’t know how to dress myself.

Jennifer Avatar

All of them! But probably Mayhem. It’s a deep plum pigmented lip balm that I’m going to layer over my other vampy tones throughout the day for moisture touch ups. I layered it over Cardshark, the deep red I got and it was magic!

Jo Avatar

Oh no, it’s unlucky to have your decorations still up after Twelfth Night!

Christine, also just wondering if you are planning to review the Guerlain Meteorites Perle de Blush?

Haul: Too Face Semi-Sweat Chocolate Bar palette and the OCC Cosmetic Colour Pencil Essentials x 6 Set.

Weekend plans: Finally tackling some videos I took.

Do you enjoy winter?: Yes, although I hate that it’s dark when I get up in the morning and when I leave work it’s dark. I do love winter weather in general. Last year’s ice storm, it knocked out power and trees, But it was beautiful in my eyes.

Alix Avatar

Weekend plans: Day trip to New Hampshire, lunch with a friend on Monday (got the day off, woo hoo!)
Do you enjoy winter?: I adore it! Everything but the ice, that is.

Lily Kelley Avatar

Mellan does look comfy! Love it when my boys look like that. xoxo for Mellan from me and my boys.

Estefania Avatar

Haul: NOTHING! πŸ˜€ As of Sunday, I have officially bought nothing in two weeks. I know that’s kind of pathetic, but hey. Baby steps.

Weekend Plans: I work, but I want to go out with a friend for dinner and a movie, at the very least.

Do you like winter? Yes! It’s my favorite, besides spring. Our summers here in Texas get ridiculously hot, so I prefer to snuggle up with some mac n cheese and Netflix my day away!

P.S. Mellan is such a handsome fella!

Jennifer Avatar

Haul: Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate lipstick in shade 11
Weekend Plans: family time and am planning on starting some books I’ve been meaning to read
Do you enjoy winter? usually I do, I enjoy the colder weather as long as there’s no ice storms but I think what I mostly like is the changing of the seasons

xamyx Avatar

Haul: I found MAC Harmony blush & Post Haste eyeshadow on eBay at near-retail prices (the blush was actually much cheaper!), and I also grabbed some magnets so I can finally put my MAC eyeshadows in real palettes.

Plans: I don’t know, yet…

Winter: I looove Winter! I prefer cooler weather, especially since I can wear more of my favorite clothes, plus I don’t have to worry about my makeup melting off.

xamyx Avatar

At least they’ve all been depotted, LOL! I’ve had them in old, empty water color palettes, but since MAC seems to be dropping prices on alot of things (the 15-pan neutral palettes are actually now $85-so I’m glad I waited!), and the empty palettes are now a fair/reasonable price, I may as well go for ot.

Chris25 Avatar

Haul: A pair of bird shaped gold stud earrings from RaelWear (Etsy shop) and a slouchy off-the-shoulder black shirt.

Weekend plans: Finish one paper (just need to complete an incomplete and I can graduate!) and clean up my desk area. I need to vacuum. I also want to swatch and photograph as much as I can. When I was in the previous semester, I had no time for blogging.

Do you enjoy winter?: I like the December part of winter: holiday cheer, fun times, eggnog, Yule celebrations. I dislike slushy streets, slippery sidewalks, icy cold winds and the lack of sunshine. It puts a cramp in my blogging activities when I can’t take photos because there’s no sunlight.

HAUL – My friend’s brother is coming to India so he picked two hakuhodo brushes for me πŸ™‚ the one you recommended for blending … J5523 and J142 and am soooooo damn excited Christine πŸ™‚ it will reach me this month end yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Weekend Plans – Relaxing at home with son , today was sports day in his school and he stood 3rd in Race πŸ™‚
Do you enjoy winters – Absolutely YESSS πŸ™‚ the chill in air with hot cup of coffee and a blanket πŸ™‚

Weekend Haul –
*MUFE Fifty Shades Give In To Me Set – this is a totally gorgeous set!! And my first MUFE shadows ever πŸ™‚ and I can re-use the mirrored compact for 4 other MUFE shadows πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
*MUFE Tease Me Lip Set in Innocent – helloooo Kylie Jenner lips!
Weekend – busy! wedding, birthday lunch, and work
Do I like Winter- it’s ok because I live in mild weather almost all year, but prefer spring

Katherine T. Avatar

The MUFE Artist shadows are awesome, just like you said! I can see myself buying other shades to put in that compact. I also got the Kevin Aucoin Creamy Glow Sculpting and Candlelight Duo that you recommended, and I like it- you’re right, it’s SO much easier to apply contour that’s a cream rather than powder. Thanks so much for the product recs! And Mellan looks so adorable, he’s just begging for a belly rub..

Kate Avatar

Haul: I’m still waiting for the the Spring collections to come out here, so I’ve been a bit restrained. I did pick up one of the new Dior Rouge Baumes, because anything balm-related sounds good at this time of year.
Weekend plans: I’m up against a writing deadline, but once I’ve got that out of the way, I’ll move on to some clean-up around here. And watching soccer, which is a weekly ritual.
Do you enjoy winter?: More and more the older I get. It’s pretty much impossible to love when the temperature gets down to -20 for weeks, but I find I’m able to deal with most of it a lot better than I used to. It helps that I don’t have to go into an office any more, since that gives me a lot more flexibility in determining when I venture out.

Pteetsa Avatar

Seriously, a few weeks ago, it was in the low 60s and rainy here, and everyone was so cold and complaining. Then I felt bad when I thought of my family back east, happy when it got up to 30 degrees! It didn’t make me feel less cold though.

Nicole Avatar

Aww..look at cutie Mellan! Christine, you gotta let me know what you think about the differences between the shades of the meteorites..I’m going bananas! I am actually heading to the mall this evening. I called and they said they did not have the pressed in at Nordstrom yet. The SA said she thinks the loose are “better”..You prefer the pressed,correct? I have the ligtest color loose. But a compact would be nice. If I am getting a medium, I really don’t want to buy both loose and pressed unless necessary. ..totally off the topic..sorry. I have been obsessing over that ,hourglass palettes, and MUFE shadows all week! keeps my mind off other stressful things though.
HAUL:Kevyn Aucoin Starlight,KA Tropical Days bronzer,a bunch of ColourPop stuff,Nuxe Reve de Miel balm,YSL Rouge Volupte (9) Caress Pink,Too Faced glitter glue,Tarte Tartellete,It naturally pretty matte palette vol.1,UD electric palette, Too faced Carrie and Big soul mates bronzer/blush(impulse buy, not sure on it) .amorepacific cleanser and toner,Mac Rhianna viva glam lipstick and gloss! Last week we had a ridiculous cold,arctic blast thing. Basically, most the week, you could not go outside.So, I spent all my gift cards from Christmas and then some obviously!

Weekend plans: cleaning,laundry, planning to meet up with some girlfriends this evening at the mall for a bite and possible to increase that haul/spring window shop

winter-I hate winter. I live in Ohio and winters are brutal here. I grew up in Houston Tx and moved here at the age of 12 .My heating bill is absurd along with my online cosmetics shopping bill. πŸ™‚

Nicole Avatar

I know! And the Sephora phased it out and has Cover FX there now! Whaat?I am moving,lol! (I wish). Winter and now this! .I am totally drooling over the entire Guerlain spring line.The baby glow and kinda the blush too. But, with the baby glow knowing me,I’ll be between shades and have to mix. I hate not being able to try out a base type product first. I just mentally chopped my allotment of MUFE shadows to kick off my goal in half because of spring lines!Probably going to have to start with 6 πŸ™
Oh well!gotta start somewhere. Plus it makes the decision making easier.
Have a good weekend!

Nicole Avatar

I get that. The SA tried to tell me the pressed didn’t work as well because you couldn’t get the full diversity that the “balls” have,lol..I just said I would look online. it’s that whole thing where they try to get people to buy both versions and I really don’t know if that is truly necessary with the quality of pressed powders we have these days.Typically,I only “touch-up my nose with a blot powder unless it’s been a really long day and I am trying to extend it into a night which is not much. Yes. starlight is a beauty. I love it because it’s got just the right amount of sheen. Not over the top. Very pretty. I an glad I caught that review!Thank you again!

Alice Avatar

Haul: ColourPop shadows and lippie stix (Lace, BAE, Rex, Shameless, Feminist). Make Up For Ever artist shadow D236. Sephora contour liner in Good Mood. Nars Orgasm illuminator mini (sephora point perk). Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipsticks in Potion and Sad Girl.

Weekend Plans: Brewing beer, 2 hockey games.

Do you enjoy winter? Yes πŸ™‚ I lived in North Dakota for 25 years you kind of have to like winter to survive there haha.

Ilovemakeup Avatar

Haul: covergirl ready set gorgeous foundations (2 colors to make sure I got the right one!)….I love my Hourglass immaculate foundation but it’s pricey and I’m attempting to cut back, Yes To Coconuts lip oil, Olay Fresh moisturizer (I love Target!)

Weekend plans: SLEEP

Winter: I love the cold and snow as long as I don’t have to go anywhere or do anything!

Sylirael Avatar

LOL! This is how I sit on the couch after a while of watching YouTube videos. I think my body is trying to achieve some sort of zen equilibrium between ‘stretching’ and ;relaxing’, but it always looks bizarre!

Haul: There might be a rather exciting little piece of loot on the horizon… πŸ˜‰
Weekend Plans: mostly work/thesis, but there will be Path of Exile and more attepts to take full face photos after the encouraging response I got on IG >_<
Winter: Winter = cuddly sweaters, skiing and more excuses for cinnamon, Therefore, Winter – awesome. Having said that, I don't really like it more than other seasons – I don't think I have a favourite!

Meghan Avatar

Haul: This week I got some books I ordered from Amazon which include Pretty Honest by Sali Hughes, Everything is Perfect When You’re A Liar by (fellow Canadian) Kelly Oxford, This Changes Everything by Naomi Klein, and The Gift of Fear by Gavin De Becker. I’m currently trying to finish up reading Blink by Malcolm Gladwell so I can dig into my new books! I also received my order of Partylite jar candles that were on sale!
Weekend plans: My boyfriend & I are going to a friend’s birthday dinner tonight & will likely relax & catch up on some DVR’d shows on the weekend!
Do you enjoy winter?: I don’t mind winter because I live in it for 8 months of the year haha! I can’t say I’m avid about outdoor winter activities. But I don’t mind it because I don’t engage with it, haha. I do love the sun, longer days and the warmth, and summers are fantastic here πŸ™‚

Meghan Avatar

I was when I was a kid I was definitely more of an avid reader, then in university I didn’t have much time or drive to read for pleasure because of all the required readings! I’ve been trying to get back into reading for fun for a while (I graduated from university almost 3 years ago & I don’t know if I’ve finished an actual book since), and my boyfriend bought my Amy Poehler’s book Yes Please for Christmas. It’s a funny memoir, I enjoyed it so much & finished it quickly! So I’ve been on a bit of a book kick since πŸ™‚

Rachel R. Avatar

Mellan, thank you for the giggle. Too cute!

Haul: NARS Demon Lover duo and an OCC Stained Gloss Test Tube set from Sephora’s sale.

Weekend plans: Work on my makeup room’s makeover some more.

Do you enjoy winter?: Not really. It’s dark, rainy, windy and cold. I enjoy the holidays, and those rare occasions when we get snow. The snow is always so pretty and peaceful, and doesn’t usually last long.

Rachel R. Avatar

I’m really loving them. I got the AfterDark set. So there’s a bubblegum pink, an ultra-bright crimson, and a bright fuchsia (the print is too small for me to read the names, even with my glasses). I love how pigmented, bright and opaque they are. There is also the sheer black one (Little Black Dress, I think) which is wonderful for mixing or shining up matte black lipstick. They’re not messy at all, which I thought they would be.

A. Mar Avatar

Haul: Caudalie Divine Oil, GlamGlow YouthMud Treatment, Dior Glow Maximizer Primer, MUFE HD Blush in #335 and Anastasia Dipbrow in Ash Brown.
Weekend plans: Reading like mad. I’m determined to finish up American Prometheus this weekend. And then start Midnight in Siberia. I will likely also buy a lot more books. It’s my habit.
Do you enjoy winter?: Softer light from being overcast, raining, snowing, misty? My favorite season.

Whitney Avatar

Haul: Absolutely nothing. I’m too busy sorting out the gargantuan amount of products that I got last year to even think about buying anything right now…unless, of course, MAC brings back CrΓ¨me Cerise. A girl can dream, can’t she? πŸ˜›

Weekend Plans: See above. I’ve got so much stuff and it’s constantly getting in the way so it’s time for me to go into β€œorganization” mode. After that though, the ever-challenging hunt for a good job continues.

Do you enjoy winter?: Yes. I love winter. I like it because it gives me the excuse to use my fireplace to make the house warm and cozy and nestle up in the couch with sweets and a good book. The only thing missing from that scenario is a handsome, muscular, not-so-talkative man. LOL!

Jocelyn Avatar

I love the little smile he’s giving!

Haul: Serious skincare Glycolic retexturizing cream, Thierry Mugler Innocent Perfumed Powder Puff, Artistry Youth Xtend Serum,Avon Anew Cream Cleanser and Murad Eye Lift Perfector in Natural
Weekend Plans: Working from home at my Ebay Business
Do I enjoy winter? YES! I love it! I lived in South Florida for most of my life, and HATED the summers there. I have since moved to NC and I absolutely love the season change, and the cold weather! Makes me frisky πŸ™‚

Telesilla Avatar

Haul: Nothing this week. I’ve been sick and my cat’s been sick. I did do some online retail therapy so I have stuff coming.

Weekend plans: A little necessary shopping and a vet visit, but mostly I’m going to curl up with coffee and try to write.

I like Winter when there’s rain, but I could do without the cold, dry, dark days.

Telesilla Avatar

It’s been the week of the deals. Amazon had all six of the Spring 2014 Maybelline Color Tattoo LEs–the “Dare to Go Nude” collection–for $18 and I couldn’t resist the deal. Also I picked up some of the NYX lipstick sets off HauteLook today.

And thank you! He’s doing better, so we’re very happy about that. And, since I’m new to commenting, I just want to say that Mellan’s just adorable. πŸ™‚

kellly Avatar

I just HAD to comment on your dog’s photo!! That is totally adorable!
I finally got my hands on the new Physician’s Formula sparkly nude eyeshadow powder pallet which is quite glittery and also the new eye booster Instant Lash Extension mascara, both of which I plan to try out tomorrow.
I’m not a fan of winter AT.ALL, I like fall the best when I can wear cute stuff and not have to bury it under layers of coats, sweaters, scarves, mittens, hats, gloves and STILL be cold. Plus warm boots are so clunky and not cute like fashion boots are! Scraping my car windows in the cold is a big drag, too and the dogs can’t stay outside long because I don’t want them to get too chilled. My favorite has always been fall when it’s crisp and not so cold I have to dress like Michelin Man just to go outside.

Ashley Avatar

Haul: It hasn’t come in yet, but I ordered the NARS Translucent Crystal Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder. Looking forward to trying it!

Weekend Plans: We have family visiting from out of town.

Winter: I live in Ohio, so winter isn’t very much fun for us. The past two weeks have been in negative temperatures!

Melissa29 Avatar

Haul: Nars lipstick in Audrey and Deborah, love them so much.

Weekend Plan: No plans yet…

Do you enjoy winter: It’s not my favorite season. I like to bundle up in a cute warm coat with cute winter accessories. I hate when there is a heavy snow storm because I have to shovel or clean the snow off my car. I prefer spring and summer any day or at least not a lot of snow.

LU Avatar

Haul: Peter Thomas Roth 21st Birthday Kit, Boscia Konjac Sponge with Black Charcoal, Erno Laszlo Cleansing Ritual Trio Mini.

Weekend Plans: Relax, I’ve had such a tiring work week.

Do you enjoy winter?: It’s actually, probably, my favorite season. I hate summer, I hate feeling hot, I hate sweating!

pePear Avatar

Haul: YSL Tint in Oil #6,#7, butter London ‘Sparkle’ duo set,Bobbi Brown Moisture Rich foundation and Sheer finish press powder
Weekend plans: just rest,get ill so easy lately at this time πŸ™
Do you enjoy winter?: yes and no,while I love snow and cold temperature but winter is bad for my skin!

Pteetsa Avatar

I love that photo of Mellan! My cat does that same pose and then gives me her “come hither” look.

Haul: I bought the L’Oreal Infallible Matte Foundation in Shell Beige 102 to mix with the Classic Ivory 101 I already have. That almost makes the perfect color. I’m really loving this foundation! Mostly I have been “shopping in my closet” – by going through and organizing my stuff, I’ve found things I forgot I had or haven’t used in awhile, so that’s actually been kind of exciting.

Weekend plans: Having said all that, Tuesday is my birthday, so I probably will do a bit of shopping! πŸ™‚ And eating out, a lot! My husband and I both took Monday and Tuesday off. So happy to have a four day weekend!

Do you enjoy winter? I live in Southern California, so we don’t really have winter here, although it does get a little cooler. I don’t miss snow (I grew up in Pennsylvania), but I do prefer the cooler weather. I love boots and sweaters!

Lotus Avatar

Awww! Omg, Mellan is just the most comfortable and lovable dog!! Thank you so much for sharing that with us! πŸ˜€
Haul: (Still awaiting arrivals) The new Nars foundations, in both Siberia and Mont Blanc, also along with most of the spring collection and summer items available! πŸ˜€ And I’m beginning to build towards investing in SKII skincare.. I’m so frustrated with my skin! Omg, and I haven’t tried that line fully, so I don’t know what else, lol! πŸ˜‰ I noticed in searches of skincare products in all brands, that I seem most interested and fascinated by cleansers! πŸ˜› That’s just odd. I did order Tatcha items!!! We will see from there!

Weekend Plans: Small organizing of recent purchases and purchasing a 3rd palette for my mother, the Laura Mercier Watercolor… whatever. I’m excited for her to have one! πŸ™‚ I must also reorder supplements! :p
Do I like Winter? No disrespect, Winter, you’re beautiful.. But, no. I can’t friggin stand you on this coast! It drives my body crazy! Pecan cream cheese pie, and Sourcream Apple pie, both my mother’s, are my favorite pies! πŸ˜€ Terrible for my body, though! I try to eat very cleanly! πŸ™‚ But soooo decadent and lavishly refreshing! Ugh, I’m so craving the first one. It’s like a cheesecake mixed pecan pie and is so amahhh zing!! Haha! I’m looking forward to your spring reviews, Christine! πŸ™‚ <3

Haul: Back to MAC for 3 lippies and bought 2 morelippies and a Fix+
Weekend Plans: Traveling from NY — FL my BFF is getting married!
Do you enjoy winter? Sometimes, I live in New York so the winters can be brutal, but I enjoy some winter activities like ice skating and snow boarding

Fran Avatar

Huge haul week.
Sephora order: Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer, First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer (two repurchases), Jack Black lip balm (my lips are dry in the winter, so I need to find out what everyone’s raving about), five Make Up For Ever eye brushes (small, medium, and angled shaders, small smudger, large blender — I tried the travel set first and love these cruelty-free brushes), Bare Minerals Ready 2.0 eyeshadow duo in Showstopper (periwinkle/dark lavender), the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics 6 pencils set and their Lip Tar Trio in Vivid (Nylon/Harlot/Trollop) and the After Dark Stained Gloss Test Tube set (all OCC products on sale — I got a lip tar in my Beautylish Lucky bag and that got me started on working with them again — I love mixing the colors, but they still won’t last through a meal on me, leaving a ring around the edge of my lips, but I’ve learned that if I swipe a Fresh Sugar or Silk Naturals lippie in the same color family over that they’ll mix together well and I’ll look fine until I can get to a mirror and a good light). A separate Sephora order of Jack Black Beard Lube and lip balm for my son’s birthday also arrived.
ULTA haul: the Bare Minerals Ready 8.0 eyeshadow palette in Posh Neutrals — I feel like this one and the Sexy Neutrals palette are flying under the radar under distractions from Hourglass and Urban Decay, but they swatched really nicely, so here’s hoping for better quality from Bare Minerals — I was almost ready to give up on eyeshadow palettes and just stick to single and duos and make my own palettes.

Weekend plans — I work every Sunday morning, unfortunately. Saturday night is one of my nights to cook, but I’ve got a ton of good leftovers to start with, so all I have to do is scoot over to the market for some fresh salad fixings, giving me an excuse to try my new products before taking them off because this afternoon will be a home spa day, deep conditioning my hair, getting rid of rough skin on my feet, and getting my nails ready for polish.

After work on Sunday I’ll probably just come home and relax because the weather forecast is for some cold rain — part of winter I really don’t like! When it’s in the 20s or 30s but sunny, I can actually enjoy going for my long walks — even if it’s snowing — but I hate a cold rain! Then my son will cook dinner and we’ll watch Downton Abbey (my choice, but he puts up with it) while we play with our pets (Natasha the dwarf hamster is mine, Rocky and Pepper the guinea pigs are his) and I knit and he plays computer games.

Haul: I did a lot of running around this week so I didn’t really get a chance to shop too much. I grabbed a Maybelline lipstick, 2 Wet n Wild lipsticks, a Black Radiance powder, Covergirl mascara and Cerave moisturizer.

Weekend Plans: Hopefully getting some rest. I’ve running around a ton these days

Do you enjoy winter? Not at all! Worst season ever
