I love love watching/hearing about hauls. I'm interested in what people got and what they recommend. I went to Sephora today, and went out with an empty wallet. lol. I manly went to get skincare products:
Korres Milk Protein Cleanser
Korres Wild Rose Daily Brightening Refining Buff Cleanser
Boscia Bright White Mask
Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Reflief
Givenchy Mister Mat
Korres Pomegranate Mattifying Treatment
Fresh Face Polish
What did you all get recently?
I love the tingling sensation when I applied it. I let it on for about 30 minutes even though the box said 20 LOL. I saw the spots where my pores where and can I just say gross? When the 30 minutes were up, I went to pat some warm water all around my face and decided to cleanse in circluar motion with what started to melt off. After cleansing most part, I grab my washcloth and cleanse whatever I missed. Skin felt super soft and I can say after one use some spots where I used to see the pores are like gone? LOL I swear, either they're smaller or something, not even kidding. I then moisturized with Clinique Moisture Surge.
I'm so glad it worked well for you! I have to stop myself from using it every single night because it CAN be a tad dehydrating but if you follow it up with a good quality moisturizer it shouldn't be an issue. I'm probably using it twice a week now.
That's quite the haul!
I've wanted to try the Chanel foundation, I've heard great things! I have to do some investigation if I have a Chanel counter near me...
I also wanted to try the TF La Creme Lipstick, all the pictures of people wearing it and swatches look so good!
There are som located within Macy's. You could try to call them to see if they have a Chanel counter there.
I love TF La creme. Super moisturizing and glides right on. Color selection is pretty too.
I'm combining my last two hauls since I just placed another order online even though I bought a lot of stuff yesterday. Just take all my money, Sephora.
Bought in the store yesterday:
Soap & Glory Butter Yourself Body Cream
Peter Thomas Roth Gentle Complexion Correction Pads
Murad Soothing Gel Cleanser
Murad Time Release Acne Cleanser
Benefit Cosmetics Porefessional (really disappointed with this because it doesn't hide my pores at ALL, probably going to return it)
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer (oil free)
Bought online today:
Murad Clarifying Toner
Urban Decay De-Slick in a Tube Mattifying Gel (I had an email alert for the powder version but it sold out again in one day and it took MONTHS for this to come back in stock so I broke down and just ordered the gel)
Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light
Lancome Mascara Deluxe Sample Trio
100 point perks: Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara and Algenist Firming and Lifting Cream
I got the Dior Mascara too!
Really? I like Benefit's Porefessional. If you don't like that one you can try Mister Mat from Givenchy.
I want to know how the Murad Soothing Gel cleanser is! Thanks.
LOL I know Sephora is like my best friend. I love shopping there
I just started using the soothing gel cleanser last night. I'm using it at nights because I don't want to use the acne cleanser twice a day and strip my skin. Plus I had a lot of rosacea and my skin gets easily irritated, so I wanted something soothing. I haven't noticed a huge difference in just two nights, but it leaves my skin really smooth and refreshed!
re: Porefessional, I'm going to try the combo of Urban Decay's de-slick and the smashbox light primer and see if that's any better.
I have a current dream haul that Im saving up for! hahah Most of it is composed of new products for the spring lines, but some are regular old lovelies I havent gotten around to purchasing. If any of you have tried any of these products and would recommend or try and stear me away from, please let me know!! p.s. this is SUCH a fun post!
Urban Decay Basics palette
Urban Decay Flushed palette
Too Faced natural eye palette
Too Faced "no makeup" makeup face palette (I know I got the exact name wrong, but you get the idea)
MAC "Archie Girls" lipgloss in Strawberry Malt
MAC lip liner in Twig
MAC lipstick in spice
Lorac Unzipped palette
Lorac Unzipped Palette is gorgeous you're going to love it! Have you tried the Lorac Pro Palette? Amazing as well. The UD Flushed is nice especially if you're traveling. The bronzer is pretty good. Not really a fan of the blush but it will work. I suggest if you could swatch the blush to see if you like the color, but for the price and package it's worth it.
Yeah, I really like the UD flushed palette for the idea of having quality makeup handy enough for packing! And I have looked at the Pro Palette and would love to get this one as well. However I think I have a lot of other dupes that resemble some colors to the ones inside that palette.
This is the mini haul I got this weekend! it is:
charolette ronson on-the-glow kit which comes with an eyeshadow quad, face palette, lip gloss, and an eyeliner.
Revlon colorstay foundation in 150 buff
nyc smooth skin face primer in 684
the sephora doe eyed 2 in 1 felt tip liner
rimmell London match perfect concealer and highlighter in 125 fair
American Beauty lip gloss in amarreto
american beauty lip liner in butterscotch
american beauty lip stick in honey delight
essence kajal eye liner pencil in 08 teddy
did anyone else get anything fun this weekend?!
Just did a mini haul:
-Issey Miyake Florale Perfume
-Ole Heriksen's Enlighten Me Kit
-Laura Mercier Sparklink Pink Lipstick
Broke them down to two separate transactions so I got two 100 point perks which I cashed in for the Ole Heriksen Truth Serum, got my samples (of course), and two of the mini fragrance baggies!
I got the Addictive and Casual!
I'm a fan of V&R's Flowerbomb and Givenchy's Ange Ou Demon Le Secret (regular one), and the Casual kit comes with the Elixir version so I wanted to try it!
My friend is a perfume fiend and loves new fragrances, so I'll probably give a nice sized chunk of the baggies and even the perfume samples I got to her, not to mention it's her birthday soon, so yay for birthday goodies!
