Re: August Hauls

I got a primer. 

Re: August Hauls

And my packages from today!  Going with the freebies first.  Wishing I had gotten more of the UD stuff, especially since there's nothing but foundation currently in the sample section!

Next, I got both of the perfume samplers, so if you guys are wondering what might be in them, here you go.  They use the same bag as what the BI Week clutch wound up using at the end of things, so I'm extra excited about getting more of them!

And finally, the paid stuff.  I think I might have every Emerald Pantone item now...

Re: August Hauls

i love those pantone brushes! i want want want <3 i was drooling over them back when they were first released Smiley Happy and yay, flowerbomb! i saw your little sample and got jealous lol. which is weird, because i am on my second rollerball, and now have a mini along with a sample vial haha. 

Re: August Hauls

They're really nice, too.  I'd get another set, but it looks like they're sold out.  Smiley Sad

Re: August Hauls

i played with them at the store once, they were so soft and beautiful! i'm kicking myself for not buying them now haha. way to remind me of something i once loved and then kind of forgot about! Smiley Wink

Re: August Hauls

Mwahahah, my job here is done!  :Twirls mustache wickedly!:

 

The Flowerbomb came in the Addictive perfume promo bag.  I'll go look up the code, though I don't know if the samples change from bag to bag.

 

ETA: The code is IMPRESS, and it gives you an option between the Chic bag (the one on top) and the Addictive bag.

Re: August Hauls

that's some serious mustache twirling skill you've exhibited there. color me impressed!

 

i'll have to try to remember that code for when my sephora probation ends Smiley Happy 

Re: August Hauls

I wanted to get the pantone brushes & now they are out Smiley Sad 

Re: August Hauls

This is my first time being enabled on BT lol! I have seen the Emerald Pantone items on the website for some time and have been like eh, whatever. But they look so wonderful in your picture! I am purchasing what is left immediately! I am still not sure how they will look with my eyes being green, but I must have them anyways.   

Re: August Hauls

Mwahahaha--  I mean, terribly sorry about that!  Smiley Wink  I've got hazel eyes myself, though my niece likes to call them "creepy green" (it's a good thing to her).  I'm really, *really* tempted to put everything on at once and go whole-hog with the green, but we're so far off from March that I don't think I could get away with it!

Re: August Hauls

Purchase made. And actually, I am loving the enabling, so thank you! Smiley Wink 

 

I can't wait for all the green goodness to get here. I was also thinking about March when I saw your picture! Now I am in the process of trying to come up with a Halloween costume that will work with a full-on emerald eye lol. 

Re: August Hauls

I got the brushes! I got the brushes! I went into a Sephora and there was one set left in the sale section so I grabbed them! Ahhh...I can finally stop thinking about the missed opportunity lol. 

Re: August Hauls

I am going to impose on myself a September No Buy - it was ridiculous this week...bad things happen when you are home bound or on vacation.

I just got back from Lush and Neiman Marcus (Giorgio Armani consultation and Tom Ford new fragrances), and I (and my wallet) are exhausted!  What made it fun and great was the amazing customer service I got from all the counters I visited this week.  With some of the recent "bad CS" posts, I want to give a shout-out to Victorine at Chanel, Fabio at Lush, Prudence and Carlos at NM, and Marie(??) at Lancome - may good karma visit you!

 

Gonna have to break up the hauls into different posts...*sigh*...but I know this is the one place I won't be judged...

Re: August Hauls

haha!  judgement?  no way!  just excitement to see your haul photos! Smiley Very Happy  so glad you had fun at all the makeup counters!

Re: August Hauls

No it is more like: "We want photos, photos!!!!!" Smiley Happy.

Re: August Hauls

FYI - I hadn't bought anything since early June and even then it was a small haul because it was so crazy with work (weekends too)...dunno why I needed to preface (or rather "post-face" myself)...

Re: August Hauls

Haul #2 - thank goodness for birthday giftcards - from Chanel and Lancome

 

Same coding from previous, left-to-right

Lancome

  • **Eye Brightening All-in-One in Mauve Cherie (301): karlasugar has swatches; I was also tempted by the Taupe one; texture and pigmentation are really wonderful (you can see in her screenshots)
  • ?Las Base Pro(primer)
  • **Maquicomplet(concealer) in Camee: There's another one called Effacernes that is longer-lasting and "waterproof".  I think it's a matter of preference, but the consistency did not work on my dry undereye skin
  • ~Sample - Teint Visionnaire in 250W(Bisque); I tried the Teint Idole Ultra 24H - There are a lot of shades and many people rave about this and how long-lasting (not quite 24H) it is.  There was just something about it I didn't like - perhaps that the 3rd ingredient is alcohol?

Chanel

  • ***Nail polish in Elixir(warmer strawberry,cream finish), Paparazzi(plum with brown/copper undertones,slight shimmer), Taboo(see my other post about this), and Black Satin
  • **Le Blush Creme de Chanel in Presage (62)
  • **Vitalumiere Aqua (cream compact) in Beige (30)
  • ?3 different perfume samples (I think from the Chance or mademoiselle line) - pretty similar; feminine but not overly so

On a different note, since I was wanting to check out specific stuff, I found myself not being able to pronounce a lot of the products...do you just go for it or say "um..you know..that concealer?"

 

 

Re: August Hauls

Very nice hauls Smiley Happy.

Re: August Hauls

I had that pronouncing problem with Yves Saint Laurent.  I even went as far as to research how to pronounce it properly before I went into the shop, and I *still* tripped all over it.  >.<

Re: August Hauls

For this week's beauty escapades, I actually put everything I wanted to try and get samples for on a spreadsheet (organized by store, brand, and product type - yes, type a, OCD).  A lot of places just took that list and compiled the testers or walked me around accordingly.  Because they could see all the other brands on there, some of them were giving me their thoughts on how the products stood up to each other, etc...

Re: August Hauls

I'm actually getting ready to do something similar with all these samples I've got, spreadsheet-wise.  I'm up to three large plastic bins full, and I really need to get it under control!  But a list would be good to go into the shops with, I know I keep forgetting things otherwise.  My sister still hasn't forgiven me for not picking up the Juicy La La and Ralph Lauren Big Pony #1 for her last time!*

 

 

 

*Actually, she has, 'cause I got her that Color IQ sample pack.  Smiley Very Happy

Re: August Hauls

If you want, I'm more than happy to PM you a link to the spreadsheet as a starting point.  I put in dropdowns to make it easier/faster to fill-out in the future.

Re: August Hauls

You know, it seems like it should be criminal to be this excited over the prospect of a spreadsheet!  I'd love it if you could PM me that link.  Smiley Happy

Re: August Hauls

That is a great idea with the spreadsheet.  I am forever forgetting to ask for specific samples of products because I forget about them.  It is almost like "Squirrel".  I get completely distracted by all the items that I want to buy.  I think I am going to have to try this out.
