you scared me for a second... you said you were going to spend some bday gift cards... i thought i missed your birthday!!! just a few more days! Smiley Happy

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@katie723  I'd say it'll be good to knock the dust off of the Kat Von D palette lol.  Yep, less than a week left of being a teenager lol.  My bf has been teasing me about it since I'm 6 months older than he is.  He's time will be here in May lol.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@kimmi yes, im sure theres a lot of dust on that palette =X its such a pretty palette, too! aww, thats cute of your bf!! Smiley Happy you'll be dating a teenager for 6 months Smiley Tongue

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@katie723  I seriously laughed out loud at your post lol.  I'll have to tell my friend Megan that tomorrow when I see her on campus.  She'll get a kick out of that.  At least I'll be legal at 21 before him lol.  And when we grow old, I'll get the Senior citizens discount before him.  I'll be saving money lol.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

i tried the stuff i ordered for that smoky eye sample bag today! i like the illasmaqua gloss i ordered but i think it's a bit bright to be practical for me so i am returning it. (but it is a super gorgeous bright pink! i just may never use it i think... hmm) love the fairydrops mascara, so i'm going to return the too faced lashgasm that i couldn't decide if i liked. Smiley Happy


At the sale today i got:

smashbox halo (so excited to try a powder foundation option)

clinique mix it up kisses (for my best friend, love the keychain idea!)

kat von d art of elysium palette in evelyn (can't decide if it's for me or a friend? Have you guys tried it?)

laura mercier 500 pt perk! 





Re: Post your recent hauls!

@jxw200  My mom uses the Smashbox Halo and she loves it.  Actually, I think that's the product that got her back into makeup lol.  She has said she's noticed a difference in her skintone being evened out more and whatnot.  I've not tried Kat Von D's Art of Elysium palettes, but I have one of her True Romance ones.  If the eyeshadow quality is the same, it is really good quality.  I have the palette in Truth which has greens, couple of purples, and a couple of neutrals.  The pigment isn't as strong in the palette as UD, but it's still excellent pigmentation.  With the colors that are in the palette, I consider it not being as strong a good thing.  However, the color is blendable and can be built up. 

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@Kimmi THe Elysium palette I got is  reallllly good. I got the one in (lol) Kimberly. I hope KVD expands this giving back line. They are so portable it's great! I'm on a huggge purple kick right now, and I even like this one better then my Sue Devitt Palette, because it's not that shimmery, and can be used every day. I was templed by the Evelyn, but the colors in it prolly would look okay indvidually, but not all in one for me. The Kimberely colors work verrry well together. Only need to pack one small palette lol

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Actually Kat's lines are quickly taking over my makeup collection! lol I love her tattoo liners! For some reason, I just find them easier then others to put on. I wish they'd make a green one though! Her eyeshadows are very good, although I was slightly disappointed with how much shimmer was in Saint. But I love my Angeless palette. I wish she'd also come out with a purely  matte palette. That would be awesome!

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@geminibreeze  I think her giving back idea was wonderful!  It was also neat how she worked with the kids to design the palette's artwork.  I have the Truth palette and one of her lipsticks.  I really want to get more of her lipsticks.  And the Kimberly palette lol.  Not just for the name, but because I love purples. 

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@kimmi, i used my Ludwig Kat Von D palette on Friday night for my brother's birthday (we didnt even end up going out, ugh!!) it turned out BEAUTIFUL!! =) the last time i used it was when i did my friend's makeup for her college grad... i used the green shadows from the palette =)


i dont think i'll be using it this week since the brown in the palette is a lot warmer than what i want to wear to work right now, so i'll probably just be taking that palette out during the weekends.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@geminibreeze  I looked at the Kat Von D Kimberly palette yesterday and I was soooo close to getting it, but I decided to wait.  I've got quite a few palettes I've been rotating, so I'll wait till I put a lil dent in them.  And when I say little, I probably won't even notice lol.  The pink in that palette was absolutely beautiful!



@katie723  Yay for using your Kat Von D palette!  Smiley Very Happy  Another thing I like about her palettes is the various cover art on them.  It's a nice, little touch.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

yay i'm glad you guys like kat von d and the elysium palettes. I thought they were really cute & i love the idea it supports. i think i'm giving it to my friend for christmas Smiley Happy (that's what i've decided this weekend)


I think i'm going to order something before the sale is over tonight... i can't decide!

Re: Post your recent hauls!


Anyway yesterday I ordered (w a gift card!)

Mufe concealer pencil
Urban decay feminine palette

Still have a few dollars left plus the vib card, excited to get something else!

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@sephoramusthave  Awesome TheBalm haul! Smiley Very Happy If their skincare products are as a gift, you'll have to get a review from the person about them lol.  The cranberry eye cream sounds really interesting.  The fact that I'm currently addicted to the Sierra Mist diet cranberry soda doesn't help much either lol.  I cannot say enough praise for the TimeBalm concealer!  Or Ecotools.  A couple of my Sephora brushes have shed a tiny bit, but not my Ecotools ones. 

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Thanks! Most of these are gifts, including the TheBalm mask, scrub and eye cream, and all the other eye creams and treatments on the list are gifts as well. I am making beauty baskets or giftboxes for a few people so most of this isnt for me. I have to admit though, I have a hard time not wanting to keep all of it! Haha!


I am actually *obsessing* over my Ecotools brush right now. Its perfect, exactly what I've been looking for. Its fantastic for all over the lid, it can get into the corners and can be used with liners with the tip top. I'm having a hard time finding a good close up pic of it...the picture really doesnt do it justice. Its wide and fluffy and oh so soft. It doesnt shed at all and I got it for $3.99 at Walgreens.


This is actually my very first eye shadow brush that I have purchased. I have some useless ones that came in kits that I hate and never use and I like applying my makeup with my fingers because there's no fall out when I just swipe it on. I didnt have a need for a brush until now because I bought a mineral eyeshadow from the balm and you cant apply those with your fingers haha! But get this, its a very glittery/shimmery loose powder shadow, and I loaded up this brush with it, DIDNT tap off the excess and I had zero fallout on my face. LOVE LOVE LOVE this brush.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I'm glad you like your Ecotools brush!  From this picture, it looks like one that came in the travel eye brush set I have.  I gave it to my mom when she started wearing makeup again to use with her single shadows.  It was hard to do lol.  It worked that well with a loose shadow?!  That's amazing!  I've not used mine with any loose shadows.  Then again, I only have a sample of a BE shadow that I use from time to time.  If only Ecotools would come out with Holiday giftsets, too! lol

Re: Post your recent hauls!

If you go to Ulta or Target Ecotools actually has tons of brush sets/kits but I only needed this one brush. I have a ton of brushes because I used to be a religious BE user but lately I've only been using 3, and one of those is my new Ecotools one. Next time youre in store though, pick up a few different "bamboo eye shadow brushes" because when I picked up 2, same name, same number, they looked completely different to me. One was shorter, wider and fluffier and the other one was thinner and longer. I'm just talking about the bristles. Its interesting, but if you catch that go with the wide, fluffy shorter one.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

i've noticed that a lot of ecotools items (sets included) have the same name but are different. So weird to me.

and kimmi i think they did come out with a holiday brush set or two (though from what i remember they don't look super holidayish to me. in any case they're probably a good value.


@sephoramusthave i'll try to see if i can spot that brush around here! sounds like a good find!

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I can't recall off the top of my head if mine have numbers on them or not.  The ones from my travel eyeshadow brush set just list what their main purpose is, such as "blend," "crease," and "highlight."

Re: Post your recent hauls!

The number that I'm talking about is on the upper right hand corner of the plastic package it comes in.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Oh ok.  I think I kept the packaging since it's resealable for my concealer brush.  If I did, it's probably back at home.  I threw the packaging away from my travel eye brush set since it came with a hemp brush roll to put them in.  It's pretty sturdy, too.
