Re: Post your recent hauls!

My mom uses TheBalm Tinted Moisturizer! She is a big TM person and has many and uses them all. I however, have never tried one. TheBalm Balmbini Palette has 2 of their blushes, the Down Boy and the Hot Mama. It also has their luminizer, which I have in full size as well, 2 eyeshadows, a lipstick and a lipgloss. TheBalm Big Mama Palette comes with the Bahama Mama bronzer, the Hot Mama blush, and the Sexy Mama powder.( Thats why I got 2!)

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Oh I forgot to list that I bought NARS Lip Laquer in Chelsea Girls. Its my first nude lip color, and the very first actual lip gloss I have bought in years. I only wear pink lip colors, but they dont go so well with darker eyes for fall. In store I was debating between the NARS and the Cargo Lip Gloss Quad in South Beach. The Cargo one has 4 different neutral lip colors but after trying them all on and comparing them to NARS I decided that they were too sheer for me. I already have pretty pigmented pink lips and I needed a full coverage nude color and NARS Chelsea Girls in perfect! I am on a no-buy for makeup for September but once I get off that I will absolutely get the Baby Doll and Eros shades from NARS as well. Baby Doll is the type of shade I usually get and I have a very similar lip color to Eros at home ( Dior Gloss Show in Charlotte Moka) so when I spend it then its on my list!

 

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I just got Blasted Black shatter by OPI from Sephora, and it took some practice and some getting used to, but I think I've got it! 

 

I did it all wrong at first.  I was like WHY IS IT NOT GOING ON?! so I was just globbing it on, then I was like oh, wait... I'm dumb, it's supposed to do that. So it dried all clumpy and gross. EPIC FAIL on my part.

 

But I really like it over hot pink, it's a nice edgy look.  I just should have read the reviews first because everyone said the same thing about how to do it. Smiley Very Happy Less is more! Don't get perfectionist about it!

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Wow, this thread is still going!

 

@sephoramusthave - I love TheBalm! Shady Lady Palette Vol. 2 is one of my best purchases ever! I have yet to be disappointed with a TheBalm product. I also like that their prices remain reasonable and they don't go crazy with limited editions and discontinuing things for no reason. It's nice to have a good, solid brand to rely on.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@officegal- I love TheBalm products as well! One of my free standing Sephora's carries this brand but I never noticed them before. They arent advertised very much on Sephora but one day I decided to try out and play with their items and I fell in love with most of them! They are all high quality, long lasting, and very pigmented products. You get a ton of product for a good price too! Lately I have been using their Sexy Mama Powder ( to cover up sunscreen on days when I dont feel like wearing powder foundation), their Hot Mama blush ( I see ZERO difference btw this and NARS Orgasm) and the devilish danielle eyeshadow from the Vol.2 palette. Benefit is my long time favorite brand of makeup but I like this company just as much! I got all of my TheBalm products on sale ( 16-20 bucks a palette) and I am thinking about going back to the store and getting their mineral shadow set and their lip tint set.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I've missed a few but last week I purchased: (no mascara!)

 

Bare Escentuals High Shine Eyecolor, in Moonshine & Glisten, (I don't like how it shows every fine line on my eyelid)

DDF Oil Free Ultra Light Moisture Dew (perfect for summer) (I had gotten a sample of this for my Beauty Insider points and really like it),

Dr Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm (this one illuminates and has a higher SPF) (will probably not use this until fall/winter)

Quidad Moisturizing hair gel

& Tokidoki Luminosa Powder

 

with my points I received a Benefit kit with That Girl Primer, Dandelion blush, and Bad Gal Lash mascara

 

A while ago, I purchased Benefit's "Hello Flawless" powder. I really like it but it's easy to use too much.

 

Off of QVC I've purchased Laura Geller's Spackle Tinted Ethereal Primer & Mally's eye shadow primer. I'll be returning the eye shadow primer because it creases (kinda defeats the purpose!). I also have Laura Geller's regular Spackle and like them both. I've become a Primer snob and have about seven now...no more until something's used up.

You're going to be super excited to hear that they're releasing a couple of limited edition shadow palettes based on the Muppets! I wish they'd knock it off with the limited edition part (shades of MAC and their detestable number of "limited edition" collections...!) but from first glance, the palettes look amazing.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Oh wow thanks for sharing! Go to Marshalls or TJ Maxx, they both just got a HUGE order from TheBalm makeup and skincare products! Thats where I got all of my TheBalm products for such a good price. They have everything from palettes, to loose shadow sets, to lipstain sets, to cleansers/scrubs/toners/moisturizers to blush to their tinted moisturizers. I have never found makeup at these stores but when I saw TheBalm I had to get some! These are the 2 best pictures that I could find of the palette and it does look amazing! I could wear most of these colors on an everyday basis and it even comes with an applicator, a concealer and 2 lip products, and everything is full size. Smiley Very Happy ( The Meet Matte palette in the second picture is not part of the Muppet Palette). However, I am on a September No Buy and I could go years without buying any more shadows so I will have to pass ( unless I see it at Marshalls/TJMaxx!).

So happy this turned out to be such a great palette!  

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I swore not to buy any more eye shadows but find myself rather tempted by these palettes! I'm in Canada so we don't have Marshall's or TJ Maxx but they're sold at all the Sephoras and a fancier drugstore near my office. Of course, they never go on sale, but they're not crazy expensive like some other brands and hopefully it'll remain that way. Smiley Happy

Re: Post your recent hauls!

The Balm's facebook page has been doing a bit of advertising of their Muppet palette.  I think they were taking preorders at a certain time, but only the first 100 would get to preorder.  it worked out something like that.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Well I use retail therapy to get over stress (bad break ups, etc.) So the past month has been almost  shameful! lol But I love makeup and skincare products! I have a mild case of roseca so I wanted to try things to clear that, and not use the gel the Dr. prescribed. So here goes *gulp*

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Oh and I used my 500 point perk to get the Ole Henrisk three little wonders kit! It's awesome!

Highlighted

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Marshalls/TJMaxx has the DDF Sulfur Mask for 16 bucks.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Grrrr... I'm waiting for it to come in. I will definetly scoop another one up from there though if it works good. Thanks for the heads up!

 

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I know how you feel. When I bought it ( I still have it) I paid full price from Sephora as well but for the past couple of years I ALWAYS see it at Marshalls/TJMaxx. They also have other DDF products, Elizabeth Arden skincare, Shiseido skincare, TheBalm makeup and skincare, Essie nailpolish and a few other skincare companies that are sold at Sephora for less than half the price. ( And pretty much every item has an expiration date on it so its not expired or anything, its just overstock from somewhere.)

 

Also, I hope it works out for you but I dont like it at all. It was pretty much a giant waste of money for me. It didnt do anything for my then acne problems and it just dried out my skin big time ( my skin HURT if I didnt use a good thick and heavy moisturizer right after.) Any drugstore clay mask can give you the same results ( and better!) and when I use it up I wont rebuy.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Thanks again! I love the Balm and will definetly be trekking to T-max after the rain stops to check it out. That's awesome if you can get it cheaper! I love a good deal.

 

I'm a lil nervous with the mask now to be honest. I bought it cause it was suggested to me at a store and I held off. But I have a few tiny zits that popped I guess with the weather. I think I'm definetely going to do a spot test and not my whole face. Thanks for the heads up.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Okay, I want the new theBalm palette pretty badly now! You guys are lucky to be able to grab it from TJ Maxx!

 

I've been using the DDF Sulfur mask this summer and it does nothing for the acne. There's no shrinkage or diminishing at all. I tried it as a 15-minute mask all over face AND as an overnight spot treatment. Neither method works and I'm going to return it since it wasn't exactly cheap. Plus it smells like rotten eggs and farts!

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Oh, and because I'm such a weak-willed makeup loving spazz, yesterday I hauled:

 

- the new MAC Seaside Cream Colour Base (from the new fall collection)

- Misa nail polish in "Office Polish-tics"

- Essie nail polish in "Very Structured" (from the new fall collection - second from right in the pic below)

- Essie nail polish in "Carry On" (from the new fall collection - first from left in the pic below)

- OPI "A-Taupe the Space Needle" (from the new fall "Touring America" collection)

 

 

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@officegal: I love those colors! (and also that you referred to yourself as a weak-willed, makeup loving spaz. Can we start a support group with this acronym? WWMLS?) Smiley Wink

Order in the haul thread! Will all the WWMLS please rise? Stop hiding those receipts and show us what you bought!

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I tried the DDF sulfur mask, I got it in finally. I don't think it did much for my forehead, but something that was impressive was I had a small pimple for a while. (I guess I didn't pop it enough? sorry for the gross image) That was like small and hard but no head, it sucked that dry. Only thing is it kinda left a scar. Weird. I think one tub was enough lol I didn't seeany products in my local TJmax, but I am definetly going to keep looking!
