Oh, and since this is the confession thread: I finally caved and got the Naked Palette today. 

Oh! I hope I didn't make it sound bad! I actually like it better than the Tarte Cheek stain because it's easier to apply! Also, it's not scented, which might help some. I love that the Tarte cheek stain is scented, but some people hated it for that reason!


and  LOL!!! Did you get Naked at Sephora? ( here come the naked jokes again!)

Re: returns - I thought that all this time that if the product was in good shape, they were used as testers.  I don't see why they should throw something out when the test products on the floor are probably in a much worse shape than the stuff that are returned (unless something is really wrong with the product).

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@mermadelove: I've been curious about the clay blush! It just got a good write up in a magazine (I forget which one...Allure? Marie Claire?). I love the Tarte lip stains, but so far I don't own any.


: )

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Just got the nars front row set, it contains:

- 0.14 oz Nouveau Monde Duo Eyeshadow (silver lilac/ rich olive gold)
- 0.02 oz Eyeliner Stylo in Nuits Blanches (shiny black)
- 0.28 oz Lip Gloss in Orgasm (sheer warm pink with golden shimmer)
- 0.14 oz Mini Multiple in Palm Springs (golden beige)


The eye shadow, lip gloss and multiple are stunning.  The only other Nars product I have used is lipstick so I'm excited to try these. 

Re: Post your recent hauls!

P.S. I should be getting my most recent haul tomorrow, so I'll post all about it once I've played with stuff!!!!

Hey, we should review our hauls here with each other! Then we can ask each other specific questions and get quick turnaround, unlike on the reviews.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

OMG! I LOVE that. That looks so awesome! Smiley Happy

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@officegal: That's gorgeous! I love the color : )


In terms of hauls, I *so* want a Clarisonic, so that might be my next big purchase...and, naturally, I fell in love with the NARS pink set (it totally grew on me!), but I did return the eye shadow, and I'm going to return a lipstick I got from Bobbi's pretty, but it didn't "wow" me enough to justify it. I feel better about it because I never opened or swatched it -- I tried it on in the store, and when I saw it a little later, I didn't like it as much at all. Return! (I love returns almost as much as I love buying...)


: )

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I'm really hoping the TSB's will help curb the spending!!!

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I actually haven't made any purchases from Sephora yet.  I did buy some MAC stuff:

Cham Pale Chez Chez Lame (highlighter)

Tickle Me Pink Creme Color Base

Peacocky Metallic Eyeshadow in Prance

Peacocky Metallic Eyeshadow in Sex-pectations

Peacocky Lip color in Flaunting it


I'm really trying to cut down on buying because I'm starting to realize I buy more stuff than I can use!  I have quite a few unopened items or rarely used items because of this! 

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Even though I received 2 orders from Sephora in January, I am not counting it as purchases made this year, since I ordered & paid for them while it was still December (barely). I ordered some sale stuff when it was an extra 20% off...couldn't resist it.I ordered:


Ed Hardy Love & Luck for men- such a nice set for $37.50, plus 20% off. It'll make a nice gift, maybe for Valentine's


Sephora Collection Mineral Loose Powder Foundation- again, an amazing deal, only $8 after the 20% off


Korres Melon Body Collection


Urban Decay Show Pony Shadow Box


Tarte Beauty in a Box: Bronze Smoky Eye


500-point perk: Benefit Benefaves


Philosophy Peppermint Bark Duo


Philosophy Fresh Baked Apple Pie Shampoo


100-point perk: Oscar Blandi Jasmine Oil Serum


So far this year I'm doing good. I haven't ordered anything. It was easier to resist since the January perk was only free shipping.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Of COURSE I resolved to spend less this year!! Right after I buy just a few things........

So far this year:


Tarte The Eraser 4-in-1 concealer

Tarte ReCreate Foundation

Korres 3-in-1 Milk Proteins Cleansing Milk

Sephora Professional Metal Eyelash/Eyebrow Brush/Comb

The NAKED palette ( after waiting seemingly forever, I now use it everyday!)

Korres Primer Duo (Regular and Antiaging)

Bosica Blemish Spot Treatment Pen

Urban Decay 24/7 15th Anniversary Eyeliner Set. Really, I HAD to buy that!! So much cheaper than buying 15 separate pencils......



Now I resolve only to buy UD 15th anniversary LTD items this year for makeup, and to only replenish my skincare as needed...........

Really!! I can stop whenever I want....... Smiley Happy


Re: Post your recent hauls!

Haha!  I knew I couldn't be the only one who caved!  Smiley Wink

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Yup I caved too, but not from Sephora.  Stila had to go and send me an offer for free shipping and mascara so I ordered an eyeshadow palette.  Then Mario Badescu sent me an offer for free shipping and 3 freebies so I ordered Glycolic Face Wash, Lip Wax, Rosewater spray, and some heel cream.  Gah!  These "free" offers just kill me!

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Yup, I'm a sucker for freebies, sales, packaging, limited editions... a marketer's dream come true, really.  Funny how even while conscious of all the tricks that are applied to induce us to buy, we still do it! 

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Free! After you spend $50!

To really be honest, they should say "gift with purchase" not "free."

Wow I really need to take it easy..... It's hard bc I am such a beauty junkie!! ARRRR

Re: Post your recent hauls!

And UD Naked Palette will be delivered tomorrow YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Post your recent hauls!

This is actually really funny... I live with my boyfriend and the one day I wasn't home, the UPS guy comes. Well needless to say the night before I get my Sephora package in the mail (literally) I had just told my boyfriend that I was going to try and stop spending so much on my makeup... of coarse I did not mention that a huge package would be coming from sephora because I just couldn't pass some things up!


Well I get home to find a very confused boyfriend looking at me wondering why I can't stop spending money on makeup... he than looks and says to me "I can tell your really trying to stop buying makeup and skin care products... Keep up the good work!" (He said it sarcastically, of coarse)


Which of coarse made me get a huge grin on my face! I than open the UPS box to find all my "goodies" and I lit up like a candle and was beyond excited... he just looked at me and rolled his eyes! Anyways that being said I bought the following:


-Kat Von D Adora Palette (Its been on sale and I am a huge fan of Kat's Palettes) 

-Philosophy Turbo Booster C Powder (I was running out)

-First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream (Been wanting to try it!) 

-Aquolina Pink Sugar Hair perfume spray (Love this stuff!)

-Urban Decay Show Pony Shadow Box ($20... how could I pass it up?)

-Makeup Forever Full Cover Concealer 

-Korres Lip Butter- in Jasmine (Love it)

-Stila Smudge Stick Eye Liner- in Moray (Gorgeous color)

-Smashbox Walk the Line Beauty Box (its on sale!)


AND I am still waiting for my NAKED Palette, which ironically, should be here today! Let me just say I have been waiting months for this sucker, and I might shed a tear opening it up and finally getting to own it and use it... I sound ridiculous, but I am very excited! Who knew makeup could make someone so happy...

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I have gone absolutely wild in sephora in the past few days!! Heres what I got:

Nars laguna bronzer
Benefit moon beam
Benefit dandelion boxed powder
Benefit boing concealer
Makeup forever aqua eyes eyeliner in pearly brown
Kat Von d eyeshadow palette in Ludwig
Buxom lip gloss in tonya
Too faced glamour gloss in plush
Sephora brand mini travel sized brush cleaner

Wow.... That looks like so much!! I know exactly what I need to go back and get: more too faced glamour glosses and benefit boxed blushes and bronzers. Those are my two new favorites! What did you discover in the month of June?

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I bought ClickR Stop Time Night Cream just a few days ago. I really want to get more shadows, lipsticks and glosses but those are things I already have too much of. Smiley Sad Oh well, shopping in my bathroom can be fun too, and no annoying sales people in my face every 2 minutes!

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I am a HUGE True Blood fan and a Tarte fan too. I finally broke down and ordered all three True Blood inspired products just now. I certainly dont NEED any more lip products.  Ive always wanted to try the Tarte cheek stains; and the eyeshadows are talc free which is hard to find. Now the wait for the UPS man begins.
