THE ENABLER AWARDS - 2013

[ Edited ]

I thought it would be fun for us to give shout outs to people who enabled us to buy products we ended up loving! Sadly, I'm sure I can't even remember all the ways I have been enabled on this board this year. Smiley Happy

 

Maybe these can be a few last minute gift ideas, ways to spend gifts cards you might receive during the holidays, or even a few ideas for your first purchases of 2014!

 

I would also like to thank everyone for always keeping the board updated with sales and amazing GWPs! Those have been enabling too! Smiley Wink And of course Missie772 and rikkie have been super enabling with their amazing perks and promos!

 

Here are a few of mine:

 

Marc Jacobs Lovemarc Lip Gel in Showstopper

I would like to blame... I mean award the entire world for making me buy 4 of the ambient lighting powders. Now if one of you could come to my house and teach me how to use them, they've been sitting in their boxes for over a month now (the only one I've tried using is Diffused light and I can't help but think my skin looks way oily with it).

Oh really? I just opened my palette and today at lunch I glanced at myself in the mirror and I was like, "GAH my skin looks amazing."

 

Someone posted the name of a youtuber who did a nice demo with some of the different powders. His name was Dustin something....?

Re: THE ENABLER AWARDS - 2013

kiki1517 I forgot which post it was…I think it had something to do with eye makeup or what we were wearing that day. Now, I’m going to start off by saying that I love beauty talk and love listening to the ladies suggestions, but I rarely go out to buy anymore because now I’m on a budget (which means no more rouge for me next year! lol). But when I saw kiki1517’s lashes from House of Lashes, they looked so pretty and natural I went directly to their site to get me some!

gtichick made me spend almost $60 on awesome beauty oils! (fake sad face) Honestly though, I love the Sephora Favorites Beauty Oils Essentials Set. It's a misnomer, of course. I don't NEED more luxurious oils; they're not ESSENTIAL, but but.... such a good value!!

This is on my list to buy as soon as my new card comes (thanks Target!)/2014!!

Re: THE ENABLER AWARDS - 2013

sulfate got me going on the nice brushes and I ended up getting this red squirrel LE Christmas brush. Blame? Thank? Both! Lol...I'm hooked and planning more squirrel and squirrel blend brushes, I was a goner the minute it touched my face. Most of my other brushes now feel like porcupine butt hair compared to this.

She also was very encouraging and helpful so I actually got brave enough to fill my scrip for this (which I've had since May, me being a big chicken and all)

AND... Sent me a sample of this (and other secret goodies)

image.jpgConfirming my sneaking suspicion that I would like their products. 

 

She's a dirty rotten enabler, and a dear. Smiley Wink

Oh a squirrel brush? Wow a feel like a huge dunce, I had no idea that even existed!

Re: THE ENABLER AWARDS - 2013

Sooo soft, like feathers. Lots of high end brushes are squirrel. I'm planning and researching the ones that will work best me very carefully but come Valentine's day, this brush will have at least a couple of new friends for sure. I jumped for this one quickly because they only offer them once a year. An impulse buy that was a very good one. It was one of my holiday gifts. Smiley Wink 

Re: THE ENABLER AWARDS - 2013

I just ordered some Hakuhodo brushes, two of which are blue squirrel. They're supposedly a dream on the face--fingers crossed, as, they were horrifically expensive! I saved up for a long time, so I posted elsewhere in BT that I better want to pet my face with them for what I paid Smiley Very Happy

Re: THE ENABLER AWARDS - 2013

I'll  look for your thread and reviews of them, thank you. I hope they are lovely! 

Re: THE ENABLER AWARDS - 2013

Ok non-beauty related, but totally most expensive enabler crown for me goes to brat, who convinced me that my mini needed UGGS for her cold feet. She probably won't take them off for a week after she opens them.

Re: THE ENABLER AWARDS - 2013

Make sure you spray them with water proofing spray prior to her wearing them!  It'll extend their life greatly!  Smiley Happy

Re: THE ENABLER AWARDS - 2013

Thanks, brat lectured me before I bought them haha! I sprayed them once, let them dry for 24 hours and sprayed them again in case I missed a spot and let them dry again before wrapping Smiley Very Happy 

Re: THE ENABLER AWARDS - 2013

Sooooo cuuuuuute!

Re: THE ENABLER AWARDS - 2013

Oh my those are adorable. They'll keep her tootsies toasty warm. 

Re: THE ENABLER AWARDS - 2013

Supposed to get our first snow of the season here in Seattle tomorrow morning, so she will definitely be needing them soon. 

Re: THE ENABLER AWARDS - 2013

lylysa totally enabled me to get CND Stickey Base Coat too haha
