Re: Post your recent hauls!

@dianabt  How do you like the Clinique foundation?  It sounds like an interesting product, but I like sheer/light coverage like in a tinted moisturizer.  The mattifying factor really grabs my attention, though lol.



Last week, I picked up a couple of polishes at Ulta:

Zoya in Nidhi

Zoya in Ivanka

The colors together are perfect for Christmas lol.  I also picked up my first EOS Lip Balm in Strawberry Sorbet, and I'm in love with it!  I like it much better than the Burt's Bees lip balm I was using. 



Re: Post your recent hauls!

@Kimmi I usually like really heavy super duper coverage makeup.. Trying to branch out but BB Creams don't give me enough! The Clinique one is pretty nice, I was in desperate need to wash my brushes and have only tried it applying with my fingers! Shame on me, I know. The coverage is still pretty light but it pretty much dries and sets nearly instantly it feels! I'm happy with it but sorta sad that my shade I got is so light! I'm wearing #9 Neutral which was a good beige tone as the next shades were too warm and yellow for my complexion. The best part was that I didn't feel like I really needed a powder on top to set it! 



Luv&Lipgloss, Diana

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@dianabt  I may have to check out a tester next time I'm at the Clinique counter.  I prefer light coverage, but the TN weather shows no mercy for it lol.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@sephoramusthave: I love Cactus Flower! It's such a pretty that doesn't get enough use (from me -- I'll have to put it back in rotation!).

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Katie---I had no idea that NARS had cream blushes so when I saw Cactus Flower in store I jumped at it! I havent opened my brand new blush but I did try it on in store. In the pan it looks like a bright watermelon pinkish red but on me it looks like a stunning coral when I blend in just a tiny (tiny!) bit. I think its the most pigmented blush I own (I have Benefit, Nars Multiple, Stila Convertible Color, Josie Maran, and CARGO cream stick and powders...I hope I got them all) and this one really is the most pigmented one that I have. I just lightly tapped my finger in the pan (once!) and blended it in on my cheeks (over bronzer!) and it looked so nice that I had to get it! The free standing Sephora I got it in only carried 2 shades of the cream blush (they had penny lane and cactus flower) and I got the cactus flower. Penney Lane was a real pretty pinky nude but I didnt try it on, it looks similar to the Stila Convertible in Lillium that I already own (and LOVE!). I dont know whether or not the cream blushes are discontinued from Sephora, I dont see them online...if thats the case I might have to go back and get Penny Lane! I wonder if they can be used on lips as well...gotta give it a try!

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@sephoramusthave: Before I really became blush crazed (and wound up with too many), Penny Lane was the one I wore every day, without fail. It's so basic and light that it's easy to throw on...I love it.


NARS Cream Blush is still available on the NARS site, but I don't know if they have plans to discontinue it or not (they're kind of similar to the Multiples in texture (but not color selection)). Sephora used to have the Firming Foundation in stores, then got rid of it. It was still available through NARS for a while, but it was eventually discontinued. This could have been a coincidence -- or maybe NARS stops distributing to retailers when they know a certain product is on its way out. That said, I don't know what their plans are for the cream blush, but I hope it sticks around Smiley Happy


...and, speaking of NARS, since this is the haul thread, I will add that while I have not hauled anything lately, I did go home with Autumn Leaves the last time I was in the store. I probably have 100 random lipsticks, and I don't have any similar colors. It's a sheer rusty shade. It sounds unappealing, but it's not -- I hope it's not a limited edition!

Re: Post your recent hauls!

katie---I'm really loving cream blushes right now. I dont care if they come in a pan or a stick, love them all. Today I stopped by the MAC counter and bought MAC Cremeblend Blush in Ladyblush. I didnt try it on my face because I already had blush on and didnt feel like having it (and my sunscreen) removed (this entire week is blazing triple digit weather) but I fell in love with it the second I swatched it on. I swatched it on the back of my arm where my skin is lighter and the front of my arm where I got my beach tan, and it looks fantastic on both sides. Its very similar to my beloved Stila Convertible Color in Lillium (which I've already hit pan on, the very first blush I've *ever* hit pan on (if you dont count deluxe samples)). I love how I can use most cream blushes on both lips and cheeks, most days I just wear bronzer to cover up the whiteness of sunscreen, and then a cream color on my lips and cheeks. Here is a picture from Google images of the MAC Ladyblush that I bought. Oh I also looked up your autumn leaves lipstick and it looks nice! I dont own any orange/coral lipsticks but I did try some on in Sephora once this year and I fell in love with a Dior Addict Shade (didnt end up buying it though...). Its called Diorisimme #249

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Here are some of the things I've purchased lately, though not all at once.


China Glaze polish in Inner Beauty (for French style manis; the Sephora by OPI base coat I was using is now empty lol)


OPI Super Bass Shatter


OPI My Very First Knockwurst (from the Germany collection; it's a lovely nude type shade)

a foot soak that I can't think of the name of at the moment lol.  It came from Sally's.  Since returning to campus, my feet have had sharp cramps shoot up the middle of my foot.


OPI Pink Friday that came with rhinestones (I love the mini so much, I had to get the full size.  Yay ebay!)


Konad mini trial set from ebay (I'm hooked now!)


Nail wheels for swatching and practicing nail art


Neutrogena Shine Control Makeup in 50 Soft Biege (I am very amazed at this product so far! Since I don't need heavy coverage and whatnot, I'm not completely comfortable paying high amounts for sheer coverage [if that makes sense], so I figured I'd give this a try.  It matches my skin tone perfectly, and it does control oily shine.  One Sunday, I was outside helping my mom wash the siding on the house in the humid heat.  When I came back inside to get ready to go to Lanndan's house, my face [especially my forehead] did not look any where near as shiny as it normally would!)


Maybelline Volum' Express Colossal Volume mascara


Maybelline Black Drama Falsies (Maybelline mascaras work really well with my lashes for some reason)


Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Black on Black (.99 cent sale at Walgreens lol)

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I definetly spent a lot, but I got a lot of products(because of the kits) so it's worth it!


Re: Post your recent hauls!

@Gymchic365 what a great haul!! I love buying new skincare even though I'm usually afraid to try it Smiley Happy But I love coming home with my bag of goodies and relishing in all my new items!! Such fun! 

Luv&Lipgloss, Diana

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@dianabt  I know what you mean about that feeling after shopping lol.  I usually thoroughly check out my new toys as I peel off the plastic or whatever.  Especially with nail polish lol.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Hi!  I just got:


1. Buxom Lash

2. Boscia Toner (for mom)

3. MUFE 4L aqua eyes eyeliner (plum)

4. MUFE HD blush #5 sample

5. Sephora Waterproof clear brow mascara

6. anastasia lipgloss in Moi (because I really needed one more pink gloss haha...but it looked so pretty!)

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Urban Decay's Naked Pencil set, I'm running low on Zero and Bourbon, and this set has both, along with 3 more colors, and it costs the same as one full sized pencil, SCORE!


Tarte Rising Star Palette, gift for my mom, over the holidays and months I've restocked her make up collection, all new brushes, carrying case, primer, you name it. I felt it was time to start loading her up with awesome colors for eyes and cheeks as the palette has shadows, blushes, bronzer, and highlighter, and it all comes in a nifty compact too! Very space saver friendly!


Tokyo Milk Dark lip balm in La Vie En Rose, the rose scent has been growing on me through the past year and a half (I'm in love with Issey Miyake's rose scent), and I'm a lip balm/product junkie. I had to try this one out and I'm loving it so far, the tin is larger than expected and the price isn't bad either.


My birthday freebee was Anthony Logistics Glycolic facial wash, I'm a big big fan of glycolic washes and this one is super gentle (I tried my b/f's sample once).
