You're welcome! 

 

That sounds like a stunning look for Valentine's Day!  Sometimes it is hard to beat something simple and pretty. 

 

I have trouble trying to match shades, too.  I stare at the bottle, the little pull out thing that tries to help you match, and at my skin.  Luckily, Walgreens and CVS have return policies lol.

Very true! I bet drug stores would save money by having testers....that way people would be less likely to return! Oh well, i still love drug store makeup shopping! :smileywink:

KIMMI---Drugstore wise, I like browsing at CVS and Target. No one bothers me there and CVS does have *some* testers out for certain items and sometimes they even have little sample packets that you can take home and try. But places (besides Sephora, ULTA and department stores) that I *really* love testing makeup out are natural health food stores like Whole Foods, Sprouts, Natural Grocers, and Central Market. They all have testers out, and whole foods especially has testing supplies on a table with chairs (alcohol, sponges--really NICE big thick triangle sponges btw, lip applicators, mascara wands, makeup removers, the WHOLE SHINDIG, I'm like a kid in a candy store in there! They even have this built in 2 sides mirror that you use standing up.) I'm a all natural gal when it comes to skincare, I dont really care about ingredients in makeup because it stays on top off your skin until you wash it off. Skincare gets absorbed into your bloodstream). But I am soooo *impressed* with the natural brands out there right now! Gabriel Cosmetics, GLOMINERALS, Zuzu luxe, Mineral Fusion, Dr Hauschka etc. I have a couple of Gabriel Cosmetics lipsticks that are CRAZY pigmented, such gorgeous color and they dont dry out my lips! I want to try the Zuzu liquid foundation (I think that L3, the lightest shade is my perfect match). I also have the Glominerals highlighter and its my number 1 luminizer!

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I wish there was a Target in my town.  There are ones in the neighboring towns, but Walmart is a monopoly in my town.  An unorganized, messy one at that lol.  I was going through Target back in December, and I noticed they carry OPI polish!  I was amazed! lol.

 

When I went to Earth Fare last Friday, I skimmed through their makeup and skin care section to check out cuticle creams.  I never really noticed how much they carried, but I was impressed.  I didn't know anything about the brands, except for Burt's Bees, but it's awesome how natural stores carry those products.  I just don't know what to try first lol.

Kimmi-----The Burts Bees brand is very dear to me because its the very first all natural brand that I got attached to, because of this brand I went online and did a lot of research on natural vs chemical skincare. To this day I still use a ton of their stuff and I would say that I tried 85-90% of the entire line so far. I know of a lot of their products that have been discontinued like their makeup line (such a shame, they had the most perfect TM). They make my absolute FAVE drugstore lipsticks right now, the lip shimmers, I have 4 in my everyday purse because I cant be without them ever lol. I love the formula, so creamy, moisturizing, slighty minty, and pigmented! It looks like a tiny little tube but it takes forever to use one up. And I always always rebuy whatever shade I ran out of even though I have a drawerful of high end lipsticks and glosses. That good. And they are affordable. The lip shimmers are 5 bucks each and last me just as long as any other drugstore lipstick. I have YET to find a better drugstore lipstick. If you dont have a Target near you, look for a TJ Maxx or Marshalls. They carry a TON of OPI, Sephora by OPI and Orly nailpolishes for $3.99 or less. They even have limited edition sets that come in packs of 2 by OPI and I think those are $5.99.

Tiny Sephora haul from yesterday:

 

Sephora Crystal Nail File: Since this one has a case with it, it shouldn't break if it falls off of my nail drawers lol. 

 

100 point perk: Benefit They're Real! mascara

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I am going with Gamergirl24's idea of posting a collective holiday haul.

 

-China Glaze Electro Pop 4 piece mini set (from future mother-in-law)

-China Glaze Christmas Duo (future mamaw-in-law)

-Sally Hansen Happy Manicures Gem Crush set (other future mamaw-in-law lol)

-EOS Lip Balm in Summer Fruit (stocking stuffer)

 

From Ulta and Target:

-Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express (decent replacement for my UD Big Fatty)

-OPI Avojuice in Raspberry Violet (love, love, love!)

-OPI Liquid Sand polish in Stay the Night

-Zoya polish in Tracie (yay for the clearance rack!)

 

With my Sephora gift card:

-Urban Decay Build Your Own Palette 6 slot palette

-Urban Decay Shadow in SWF

-Urban Decay Shadow in Asphixia (probably misspelled.  Oh well)

 

I ended up going with a build your own palette to work on since my current Kat Von D pinks and purples are almost gone.  My greens are as well, so I will need to find some UD green at some point.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

What do you think of the Dior amber?  how do you use it?

Gamergirl24

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I love it! It is the best highlighter I have had to date. What i do is swirl the lighter side together and use that more towards the center of my upper cheek bones. Then I swirls the darker part together and use that on the outer part of my upper cheek bones. It looks lovely.

Also, I have used some of the strips as individual eyeshadow.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Great post! 

My recent items from Sephora are:

-URBAN DECAY Eye Shadow Primer Potion

-NARS Mini Highlighting/Bronzing Blush Duo

-OPI Jewelry Top Coat (Meet Me At The Disco)

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Is the mini NARS blush/bronzer duo really small? Can you apply them with brushes or will that smear the products together? I want to try those products, but my problem with NARS is that they usually have the *biggest* price tag glued to the *smallest* products. I have enough blushes/bronzers that I dont need any more (for awhile!) but for $24, if its a decent enough size, this could be a good deal on trying both products.

I just got to use up my Sephora gift card yesterday.  I got

-Sephora brand makeup remover- the large bottle :smileyhappy: ($8.50)

-Sephora smart dual action exfoiliator (sale-$7)

-Sephora instant moisture kit (sale-$7)

-A Sephora professional eye shadow brush (sale-$7)

 

The kit comes with supreme cleansing foam, instant depuffing roll on gel, instant moisturizer, and a sample of body butter. The dual action exfoiliator has two different product, one green for your t-zone, and one white for all over. 

I'm super excited about all the sale items I got, and I really needed the skin care. I can't wait to start using these :smileyhappy:

 

I was gonna put pictures in this post but can't for the life of me get it to work. Sorry :/

 

~We are all beautiful~

Todays JCP Sephora haul:

 

1. UD Naked Basics Palette

2. UD Eyeshadow Primer potion

3. Too Faced Shadow Insurance (original)

4.100 pt perks: MUFE HD setting powder, MUFE Eyeliner

 

I wanted to buy NARS TM in Finland today....but they were sold out >_<

 

I need to get some more eyeshadow brushes...I'm getting tired of having to wash mine every night (I like to change up my makeup and I cant dip the same brush in anything than what I had already dipped it into....grr....I like Ecotools and Real Techniques a LOT.)

kimmi1115

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I love Ecotools!  :smileyvery-happy:  I know I've said that a hundred times before, but the good news about them must be spread lol.  How have your Ecotools brushes been holding up?  Compared to the small Sephora brush set I have, my Ecotools brushes have not shed any that I've seen.  My Sephora ones do shed a bit.  :smileysad:   

sephoramusthave

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Kimmi----I have *never* had any issues with Ecotools, and I've had mine for awhile now, and they have all been washed and dried more times than I could count. They never shed, they never lose shape, they never get scratchy, and they are always super soft and super dense, and at the right price. There's a set that has 2 of the most amazing eyeshadow brushes, one I use for powder shadows and the other I use for cream shadows. I wish they were sold seperately! I would hoard up on those for sure!

Re: Post your recent hauls!

The other experts and I got some great goodies last week at our annual holiday party. There were tons of brands there doing makeovers and demos. Many were kind enough to hand out products too! Some of the things that I’m beyond excited about are:

 

-Prada Candy (it smells like a more sophisticated version of Pink Sugar)

 

-2 L’Occitane hand creams (these are great to just keep in your handbag because they’re so small)

 

-Benefit’s They’re Real! Mascara

 

-Bliss’ Fabulous Foaming Face Wash

 

-Ole Henricksen Ultimate Eye Lift Kit

 

 

 

Whimsically yours,
Janine
