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?
Yeah, probably 5 of the past 6 or 7 years I've had jobs where I couldn't wear nail polish, so that has kept me "in check" to some extent. Right now I'm just doing a lot of typing and my nails are growing out faster and not breaking as I'm not being rough on them so it's extra tough to resist dressing them up!
This weekend and today i've recevied...
-Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation in Ivory
-Murad Skin perfection lotion
-UD Good karma optical blurring brush
-Tarte Amazonian Clay 12+ hour blush "Dollface"
-KVD Painted Love Lipstick "Celebutard"
-Philosophy Bubbly bubble bath & shampoo
and then for free i recieved..
-Guerlian Maxilash (sample)
-Tarte Deluxe Sample Trio (VIBTARTE)
-Korres Greek Yohgurt Mask (x2) (sample)
-KVD Everlasting Love Lipstick in "Backstage Bambi" (full sized)
-Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask To Clear Pores (1 oz) - (100 Pt. Perk)
-KVD lipstick in lolita (sample)
honestly, i didnt think the brush would make that big of a difference but it really did, i used to use a normal one from ELF and now i don't think i could use anything else, it just makes the foundation go on so flawless, its worth the money!
So: with all my makeup purchasing and swatching, mac somehow fell on the wayside (sorry, mac!) , so I decided its time to go back! I only had 15 minutes there and in that time I got:
the powerpoint eye pencil in Stubborn Brownand mac pro-longwear blush in blush all day
dior shimmer star in rose diamond
And some acrylic storage from amazon - hinged boxes and lipstick holders
From Muji - Drawers
And From ebay - some compartment organizers
I know what you mean about ignoring MAC! I need to buy new powder soon, but this morning I got the email about the summer Rihanna release and the site was INSANE so I just snagged the pretty RiRi Woo lipstick.
I should probably get something in the way of organizers too... do you have any suggestions? What sort of set up have you got going?
omg, that riri woo lipstick is so bold, sexy and sophisticated all at the same time --I like your taste!
All acrylic stuff - I love it! its like a showcase for my makeup
So there are some acrylic cases with several drawers, but I opted to get several smaller pieces - I feel that my makeup can be more accessible and displayed better.
So far I got the Muji 3 drawer acrylic case -- eyeshadow, blush, and highlightersMuji 3 Compartment stand -- nail polish, eyeliner pencils, lip-liners, long mascara tubes
2 Muji pencil holders -- Brushes...(And regular pencils, because I love it so much)2 US acrylic all purpose boxes (One for lip stuff, one for foundations -- they don't all fit, but its something for now...)
Small us acrylic box - for rollerballs, perrfume minis and samples
So basically I stacked one box on top of the drawers and then everything else is lined up against each other. I keep my moisturizers and stuff in a large makeup bag i got for free with a dior purchase
I'm still working on my set-up - - Not done yet, but this is it for now...
Ahhh I love Muji! Those makeup storage containers look fantastic.. I'm definitely trying to touch them through the screen.. they look super sleek and just so clean! Great choices. ((:
Wow, it reminds me a bit of a jewelry display case, all the treasures protected under glass! I bet it looks fantastic when everything is together in there.
I have found myself unexpectedly living out of a suitcase or two for the last 7 months so I dream of the day I can take everything out of all the makeup bags I have going, haha.
This week has been a lipstick week, I finally caved on a Givenchy Le Rouge because I missed the 100 point perk before. Another haul post coming up waaaay too soon after the last one!
Iv'e actually lived out of a suitcase for quite a while last year, so I can relate finally I got settled, but my makeup has been all over the place, in random bags and shoeboxes and stuff....so its about time i took a stand and did this!
can't wait to hear about your latest haul!!!
Which shade of the givenchy le rouge did you get?
Glad you're settled now! It must feel so good.
I was holding out for Carmin Escarpin but it just hasn't been back in stock and I can't go to a store anywhere to look, so I am hoping Mandarine Bolero will work for me! I've got two orders on the UPS truck now and one more on the way tomorrow, so I will get to see them on Friday. The wait is interminable!
here in the Philippines, acrylic drawers come in cheap. a complete acrylic drawer system ( with 3 shelves + 12 slots lipstick case + 2 brush slates) would only cost roughly about $15. crazzzzzyyyyyyy right?
but makeups here tend to cost a lot due to super high markups. a Mac lipstick costs about $23 here! crazzzzzyyyyyyy. that's why i always shop online in the us stores then have those shipped here. lol.
