Please share your purchases! Remember, a haul is a haul no matter how big or small! Smiley Wink Smiley Happy

I am a Disney nut too.  If there are Disney threads here, I've never seen them.  There are plenty of sites dedicated to Disney though.

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

I assume you got that shirt because you are running a 10K race. Congratulations! I am a total running addict! Shot bloks are a great choice. I wouldn't have survived my 70.3 ironman without them. Have fun!

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

Yes, this is my first 10k since High School.  I need to get back into running.  I have done a few 5ks since high school but nowhere near as often as I should and at a pretty relaxed pace.  The 5k I was going to run in July was canceled at the last minute, so I was bummed about that.

 

The shot block was included in my runner's bag, so I did not actually choose it.  I tried one on Friday and two before the race earlier today, but I did not notice the difference.  I am glad they work for you.

 

I had a lot of fun.  Thanks.  The Iron Man is on my bucket list.  It is pretty cool that you did that.  I am a good swimmer and an all right runner (will never be as good as I once was, because my knees always hurt).  Cycling is my week suit, because my rear end always gets so sore that I cannot focus on pedaling.  I still need to get into much better shape before I can attempt it though.  The course would kill me in my current condition.

Ironwoman??? Holy Toledo! Color me impressed **knuevekm** What did it entail? I think you may have to change your name though, Ironwoman might be more accurate. (although I don't know what knuevekm means, so maybe that's equally accurate) Kudos to you, Big Time!!!!! Smiley Happy

Hi dziggi - I almost got the No Bleeding Lips, but have a Bite liner similar to it (only tried it a few times, not terribly impressed, but since I just found it again in a summer-time bag, maybe I need to give it another go) Did you try/like No Bleeding Lips? Maybe your info will help me decide.

 

Did you get the crazy amount of samples in store? When I got to the counter and asked if they had any other samples, before I even got the words out, the girl said, 'Umm....that's what's in here." Referring to the VIB Rouge Sample bag. So I ended up letting it go and hoping I'll have better luck next time. Any secret undercover password/lingo to help get samples? (like needing to know the password to get into a 'speakyeasy' or something - although I suspect that might have actually been easier! Smiley Very Happy

 

Don't feel bad about misplaced samples, I misplace Everything all the time! Probably due in part to the fact that I'm always trying to hide my purchases here, there and everywhere. Did they give you good samples? Thanks for any info, I appreciate it. Smiley Happy

 

btw - I remember the first time I enlarged your avatar - what a hoot!!! Your dog is adorable. I had one who loved wearing her sweater, she'd scratch at the door to go out and then I'd put her sweater on her and she'd run away to go sleep somewhere (they're so smart) She was also partial to a long set of faux pearls that I found from childhood dress up days, they'd wrap around her neck several times (only with human supervision, of course) you could feel she felt so fancy with her pearls on though, Yes, sometimes a paper towel around her neck was even enough to make her happy - that's what reminded me of her. Any details to share about your Dough Baby and his/her other fashion trends? I smile every time I see your avatar - thanks for that.Smiley Happy

I'm still trying to decide if I like the liner. It's good but I'm not wowed with it. Some of my creamier lipsticks still bleed while wearing it and it has a very waxy texture (or maybe I'm applying too much, not sure). I'm still trying to figure how much to apply.

 

I never get any samples in store! I swear the sales people keep the samples for themselves because whenever I go out they always tell me they are out.  I know when I worked in a department store the makeup counter sales people always took home a generous amount of samples. Or maybe I'm just looking to much into it. If there is a secret code or special hand shake for getting samples, I have yet to figure it out! Smiley Happy That's why I'm loyal to the online store. All the samples and promos I want.

 

I wish that was my dog! I actually found the pic online after searching for Welsh Corgies. That's why I had to use it as my avatar. The face on the dog is priceless. It cracks me every time I see it. "Human, why are you looking at me like that? I've got bread on my face, don't judge." Hahah your dog sounds like quite the fashionista! Smiley Happy

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

How do you like the "No Bleeding Secret Lip Liner"  My niece always wears red, red lipstick and she's been on the hunt for a good liner/primer to prevent feathering, bleeding, etc...   I use the Too Faced Lip Primer, but she has tried it and thinks it makes her lips too dry.

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

I'm on the fence. It works well with most lipsticks but if the the formula is very creamy it still bleeds on me. One thing that bothers me is that you can feel it on. It has a very waxy texture. I'm still trying to figure out if I really like the product.

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

When I remember, I usually put concealer around my entire outer lip line after moisturizing and before powder foundation. I've been using IT Cosmetics Bye-Bye Under Eye Concealer and it help with some bleeding/migration issues and also does give a very subtle highlighted/poofy effect to my lips. (I'm probably the only one who notices it though, but if it makes me feel better.....why not?) It's good if the color is a little lighter in color, something slightly darker wouldn't do the trick.

 

Do you like the Too Faced Primer?

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

(0) Hearts

It works pretty well for me.  I don't use lipstick everyday (I'm more of a gloss girl), but when I do, the Too Faced Lip Insurance definitely extends the wear of my lipstick.  It can be a little drying so I use balm first and try to stick to hydrating lipsticks.

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

Finally posting my latest (well within the last week or two) purchases!!

 

 

Lip tars and samples from the sale

Napoleon items from Ulta's sale (I can't resist a good sale, clearly). Also, those lipsticks are gorgeous!! I had never tried a napoleon lipstick before, and I'm in love.

My beautiful, beautiful Tom Ford items! Nude dip and Softcore.

Louboutin polish Smiley Happy Finally got to try this last weekend, and I really like it. I can't wear nail polish at work, so for me it's only a weekend item (or a special weeknight). One coat being completely opaque with a quick drying time is a lifesaver for me! Although the next day, I did have some scuffing on the tips, so I added another coat and that lasted beautifully through the rest of a rather rough weekend. Definitely getting at least one more color.

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

That blush looks so lush, vibrant, and silky. I think I may be just a little bit obsessed with it now. Is it more red or pinky? Warm or cool?

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

It's very warmed toned and shows reddish/plumb on my skin. The highlighter is super creamy and blend able and both are so intensely pigmented that it will last forever. I barely tap my brush and it's plenty!

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

Thanks!

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

I am trying SO hard to only replace make up I'm genuinely nearly running out of, but every time anyone posts a Tom Ford haul, I somehow convince myself there are many definitions of 'nearly running out of'. Mabe hitting the pan on every eyeshadow in a palette is not essential ...

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

My current justification is that once I have a good stock of high end shadows and whatnot I'll trade away my mid range items. Or I'll just hoard it all. We'll see. 

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

Yay!  You got the primer. 

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

(0) Hearts

Thanks again for the reccomendatïon! I love it so far. It's light enough that it doesn't mess up my moisturizer o serum but I really see a difference with my foundation. 

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

Aaahh TF love it! 

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

Drooool. I must resist that nail polish.
