Re: Post your recent hauls!

I have both the 24/7 liners and the 24/7 shadow pencils and they seem to be the same consistency and durability. Both stay on well and have very good pigmentation (what you would expect from UD).  The shadow pencils are fatter so you can get the job done with less rubbing on the eye lid than if you had to do it with a skinny pencil. Since my eyelids tend to be oily and are getting a bit crepey, I don't like to over rub them if possible, so I bought the shadow pencils and am happy with them. If you already had the liner set, and have the color you would otherwise buy of the shadow pencil, and you don't mind a bit of extra rubbing, I'd say save your money and just use your liners as shadow.

I love the nude lip but I have the problem of not only highly pigmented lips but my top lip is much darker than my bottom lip. I stumbled onto a cure for this. Lip liner!!! I picked up a lip liner very close to my lips' color and applied to my entire lips and Voila! C'est magnifique. My latest hauls are:

NARS lipstick in Funny Face(a fabulous fuchsia alternative to red lipstick)

NARS lip lacquer in Hot wired(a sheer fuchsia gloss that amps up my Funny Face lipstick or looks great by itself)

Sephora by OPI nail polish in Iris I Was Thinner (a creamy grape sherbet for spring is the best way I can describe it)

Clinique Quick Liner in Tender Taupe(my nude liner that I use under all my lipsticks)

Clinique Lip Smoothie lip gloss in Pom-A-Greatness(a sheer berry with just a little bit of sparkle)

Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara in black (I bought it on a whim because the brush was so darn cute but let me tell you the best $10 I have spent on makeup in a LONG time)

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Well, whoever posted the allcosmeticswholesale.com address really didn't think anyone would be cutting back. I placed two orders in two days!

The first one had Bobbi Brown exfoliating cleanser, Lancome eye make up remover, an Estee Lauder lipstick & mascara, Clinique Moisture Surge, & Stilla Illuminating Powder Foundation...all for $100.

The next day I ordered SMH empty eye shadow compact and eye shadow to fill it for $84.

Happy shopping...or cutting back, whichever you're doing!

Daaaaamn... that's a good haul!

 

Re: Post your recent hauls!

LOL! T?hat was me that posted the acw site! You must admit that it's sucha great deal you can't feel TOO guilty about shopping there! I can't wait to get my order from them! I have *ahem* a few orders coming it. When I get then. I'll post my haul!

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I'm with prettyinpa about the liners vs the shadow pencils. If I hadn't already gotten the 24/7 15th set, I would have gotten the entire set of shadow pencils instead. They can be used as liner or shadow, apply easily and smoothly, and last forever! I hope they make more colors because I thik they are a better value for the money than the liner pencils!

 

Going to a FS Sephora this weekend. Can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I agree with you all--I love the 24/7 Shadow Pencils because I think they are softer and creamier than the regular 24/7 Liners.  They blend out so much easier when using them as eyeshadow than trying to use a liner pencil as eyeshadow.  Plus the shadow pencils are easy to use as a liner, as well, but I usually take a liner brush and run over the end of the shadow pencil because it's too fat for me to line my eyes with using just the pencil.  Smiley Happy

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@mermadelove:  I found out about the UD Matte Eyeshadows being discontinued because I noticed that Sephora only had 2 colors available, which usually means they are going to quit carrying a product.  So I went to UD's site to order the color I wanted and the matte shadows were listed under their RIP Items and they were already out of the color I wanted, too. Smiley Mad I ended up having to get Revolver from eBay because I couldn't find it anywhere else. Smiley Sad

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Etenngal. At least you were able to find it on ebay! Check out HAute Look this month as later this month I know they are having a UD event. I bet the mattes will be part of it.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@mermadelove:  Thanks for the tip! Smiley Happy  Since I still need to stock up on Yeyo, I'll check it out!

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Ok. So here's my most recent haul:

 

7 glitters and 3 loose pigments from TKD trading. Won't go into color details now

7 loose pigments, 2 Magnetic palettes ( although they only sent me one Smiley Sad ); and a mineral/pigment pressing kit--can't wait to play with that!

1 MAC empty palette

3 MAC eyeshadows: Pink Freese, Trax, Parfait Amour

 

That's all for now.

 

Today I am going to a FS Sephora, so I'll post the rest of my haul later! Smiley Happy

 

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@mermade - Nice haul!! I look forward to hearing about your Sephora purchases. I went today but didn't buy anything... again!

 

However, I did get the OPI Black Shatter. I thought I wasn't going to be in to it but watching the crackling effect is a lot of fun!

 

 

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@officegal: I LOVE that look! I did make it to a Sally to check out the China glaze but all they had left was teal and pink. Smiley Sad

I did better at Sephora.

Here's what I got:

UD single shadows in Vapor and Polyester Bride

UD Shadow pencils in Narc and Rehab

Body Shop body butter in Coconut. This was an impulse buy. It was a good sized purse friendly container for $5!

Caudalie Beauty Elixir ( thanks for the suggestion, tenngal!)

Sephora by OPI Quick Dry Spray

Hello Kitty eyeliner 100 point perk.

 

The 500 point perk was the Boscia skin care kit. Boo. I have skin care coming out of my ears!

It always amazes me that I usually leave the store with 50% different things than I planned to buy. Seeing it in person and being able to compare and contrast really helps the selection process!

 

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@officegal:  Great look with the nail polish!  I've been thinking about buying it, but I wasn't sure what it'd look like.  Now I know it looks great, so I'm gonna put it on my shopping list! Smiley Happy

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I recently bought the LashStash mascara set, since it went on sale, and the first one that I'm trying is blinc, since I've been interested in trying out the tubing mascaras.  It's ok so far, except that I decided to put it on before running a 15k on Sunday and it was raining the entire time.  Around the 7th mile, I could actually see the "tubes" falling off my lashes (I guess they started falling down in front of my eyes), so I rubbed my eyes and they all completely came off on my hands.  Then of course I was wondering how long I looked like a crazy person.  Oh well.  Smiley Tongue

 

I ordered some makeup brushes from Haute Look, but I haven't received them yet.  Their shipping must be super slow.  This is my first purchase from them.

 

@officegal - The black shatter looks good.  Smiley Happy  And I agree that it's fun to watch.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@serendipity01: I also am no longer a fan of tubing mascaras. They definitely lengthen to ridiculous heights, but the tubes falling off onto your face all day? So not worth it. I'll stick to BUXOM and SEphora L:Ash Booster. Sorry about the weird typos. Migraine again.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@officegal and tenngal: I had never tried China Glaze before. I loved the look of the crackle. Went to sally's couldn't find it. Just placed a freaking huge order at head2toe beauty dot com. The sell ?China glaze for 2.99 t0 3.49 a bottle. Yes, that's right. 2.99 a bottle. Cosidering that I am totally in love with this beand now that I've actually tried it, I felt like I hit the mother lode. OPI has really been disappointing me lately. The China GLaze went on with perfect coverage after 3 coats, dried SO fast, and holds up better that the OPi colors so far. I don't know if it's just the Sephora by OPI  or what, but my OPI has been chipping on day two. I don't want to do a manicure everyday!

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Hmm, I haven't had any trouble with the tubing mascaras at all. Regular mascara tends to give me raccoon eyes after about 3 hours, so I have been loving the staying power of Blinc. Though I never ran a 15K with it on, wow, that's amazing!! I guess when I have to work outside this summer in 100 degree heat, or ride the horse in hot summer weather, maybe that'll be different. Has anyone tried it in really extreme heat like South Florida or a tropical place? I wore it in Arizona during a hot spell in the winter and it stayed put.

 

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Thanks for the compliments, ladies!

 

Re: tubing mascaras - I currently use the L'Oreal Beauty Tubes (the double ended one with primer & mascara) and it never budges.  In fact I slept with it on one bad night and it was completely fine the next morning.  So much better than regular mascaras, though it will never top my beloved YSL Faux Cils!

 

I'm seeing some nice hauls in here.  Good to see I'm not the only one spending and breaking resolutions.  Smiley Wink

Re: Post your recent hauls!

No, you're not the only one. I just placed a huge order from Ulta. I've been doing good so far this year- aside from a couple small beauty.com orders and the Clarisonic, I really haven't gotten anything. Until today, that is! I can only hope the box comes when I'm the only one home so I can quickly smuggle it away. I got a lot of stuff but the deals were AMAZING so I couldn't help it. I won't go into detail, out of respect for Sephora Smiley Happy

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I picked up these Physicians Formula Eye Booster liners (supposidly they'll grow your lashes).  Anybody else tried these?  I got one in clear and one in black.

 

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@serendipity - I haven't tried those but please let us know if you see any results.  I have the puniest lashes!  I can confindently say that newborns have longer lashes than I do actually.  Smiley Happy

@kalex- You have a way with words, gal!  What a hoot!!!

 

@serendipity:  Please do post how well your new products work, I have seen them in stores and was always curious>

 

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@serendipity: Where did you find Physicians Formula?! I've been wanting to try that happy looking heart blush, but I can't find anywhere -- not my local Target(s!), and not at the 2938433209202 Walgreens in a 5-mile radius...at home (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) I swear I used to see Physicians Formula everywhere, so I don't know if it's harder to find in general now, or just here. The website still claims it's available at Walgreens and Target, so I don't know what the issue is...

 

@kalex: Hahahhaha Smiley Happy
