Re: Post your recent hauls!


I'm sorry Sally's Beauty was out! OPI came out with a "shatter" nail polish by Katy Perry (just like the China Glaze crackle polish) and I went into ULTA today and they had the OPI Katy Perry Shatter nail polish in black (which I think is the only color they offer in the "shatter" polish?). But if you are wanting the Crackle Polish in Black from China Glaze maybe you can find OPI Shatter polish which is literally identical! Hope this helps! 



Good to know! I had a feeling they weren't just in California... but I wasn't sure! Thank you!

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I'm ignoring that Benefit deal but happy shopping to everybody else!


Re: crackle polishes - OPI is coming out with a few new crackle shades with their Pirates of the Caribbean collection, so keep your eyes peeled for those. They're either out now or about to hit the shelves any day.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I had a bit of March madness this week and ordered from both Sephora and Ulta. I got Kinerase C8 Peptide Eye (30% off sale, YAY!), UD shadow pencil in Mercury, Peter Thomas Roth Unwrinkle Kit and UD shadow primer in Sin.  Then to top it off, Ulta had a one day sale on Kinerase, so I splurged and got the C* deep wrinkle serum.  Since Sephora isn't carrying Kinerase any moreSmiley Sad I figured I better stock up even though my current bottles still have a ways to go. Oh well, my wrinkles will be less, along with my wallet!

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Nice haul, prettyinpa! I'm using a sample of Kinerase C8 Peptide treatment and it's kind of amazing how it works. The Sephora I go to still stocks it but I noticed that it's sold at my awesome drugstore as well, so I know where to go if my Sephora phases it out as well.


I treated myself to some birthday goodies.  UNBELIEVABLE deals on By Terry (mostly at a discount store called Winners in Canada).  The foundation and blush are amazing - I'm sad Sephora is no longer carrying this brand even though it's too expensive for me on a regular basis.  I got:


By Terry Ultra-Correcting Liquid Foundation in 6 Sunny Beige:
Original price $110
Purchased for $24.99

By Terry Velvet Cream Blush in 2 Peach Nude:
Original price $45
Purchased for $9.99

By Terry Ultra-Fine Eye Shadow in 15 Pearly Flannel:
Original price $44
Purchased for $9.99

By Terry Tinted Replenishing Lip Care in 6 Devil Rose:
Original price $52
Purchased for $12.99

By Terry Intense Hydra Plump Lipstick in 6 Vanilla Cinnamon:
Original price $50-something
Purchased for $20-something

LOL Katie, you make me laugh. Smiley Very Happy


@tenngal - I had my Naked Palette for a few weeks, barely touched it 3 times, then sold it to someone. I got sucked into the hype when I darn well should have known better. I didn't think the shadows looked so good on me, either, even though I love neutrals. Maybe our expectations were too high.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Nice haul! You make me want to go shopping! I've been in a walking boot for a while and cannot drive. So if I want to go to a store I have to get someone to take me. Everyone has been so busy lately...if only there was an Apple store in the same mall as Sephora. I could get my husband to take me and I'd have hours! Smiley Happy

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@tenngal: I was just at UD's site looking at the matte shadows and I was able to add Revolver to my cart. Maybe they found some more?  (In case you want to stock up).

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@prettyimpa:  Thanks for the info! Smiley Happy I actually stocked up when I ordered from eBay--I got a really good deal on it there.  I still need to stock up on Yeyo, though.  I'd better get on the ball before I can't find it anywhere.

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I hit again (thank you!). Payday is Thursday so had to keep it small.

*All Paula Dorf is 30% off**

I got:

*Paula Dorf pressed powder  & liptint in First Love (pinky-rose)

*Smashbox High Definition Concealer

*a plum color Maybelline lipstick

*a pot lip duo by Pop

And to think I just signed up to sell Avon (for the discount!).

All for $38 and I saved $6.30 on a Paula Dorf


Re: Post your recent hauls!

Awesome hauls, ladies!

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I'm a teenager, so I don't need or buy too much makeup. But so far, in 2011, I've bought or recieved:


Bobbi Brown Peony and Python Palette (So PRETTY)

Tokidoki Lip Stain/Lip Balm in Pink Martini (Love!)


100 Point Bonus (With the help of my Mom's products): Sephora mini Eye Shadow in Swimming Pool 

Complimentary Birthday Gift: Philosophy Birthday Cake Shampoo/Bubble Bath  (Smells amazing - I love my birthday!)


Tarte Eye Primer with Firmitol (Works super well - though I may have to try the UD one everyone else has!)

A Tarte Eye Palette (I can't remember the name of it! Sorry! It comes in a pretty purple clutch though and was a birthday Present)


That is it. Though I am going to Sephora next week - I am thinking of buying the Nars Velvet Gloss Pencil in Happy Days. What do you think?







Re: Post your recent hauls!

@marinaanne147:  Welcome!

I like the NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencils a lot.  (I like them even better than the original Velvet Matte Pencils and they were great.)  I think Happy Days is a really pretty color, too.  It's a great color for spring and summer.

By the way, the eyeshadow primer you're using is a very good product, but you should try the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion when you run out.  The UD primer is absolutely awesome!

Smiley Happy

Re: Post your recent hauls!



Thanks, for this and your awesome answer to my question! I have decided to buy the Nars Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil (That's a mouthful...) this weekend. As for the eye primer, surprisingly enough, my mom is going to get the UD one as she doesn't even use an eye primer (and she wears makeup a lot more often and for longer than me), so she has been using some of mine, which means I can use some of hers! That was a rather complicated sentence, oops.  Smiley Very Happy

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I love Sephora to pieces, but I was at Bloomies with my grandmother yesterday to get free makeup lessons at the Bobbi Brown Counter about my Peony & Python Palette, so I spent some time at the Benefit Counter as well. I ended up buying their Posietint, which I love, though I do think the cheek application is a bit hard. They gave me some free gifts that I'll tell you about as well.

First, I got a (full size I think) lipstick called 'sugar cookie' that is basically all shimmer/sparkle on a peachy base (but it is seriously all sparkle).  Then they gave me a sample of BADgal Lash mascara, but when I pulled out the wand I realized that the wand was the size of entire eye (Honestly, this wand was enormous!) so I gave it to my babysitter.  I also got super tiny samples of Highbeam and Erase Paste in Medium. Medium is not my skin tone, though, which is too bad. However despite the annoyance of how the EP wasn't in a proper can-thingy and so I had to cut it open and it was kind of a mess, I tried it on my eyes and it did an amazing job of blending and made my skin look flawless there. I gave it to my mom, who has a medium skin tone (and more undereye circles than me). The highbeam, maybe I did it wrong, but I could barely tell the difference. Sorry, I think this was more of a review. But that is what I hauled, I just wish it had been from Sephora so I could get some Beauty Points. Benefit's stuff is too cute for words though!

Re: Post your recent hauls!

Well, today I cheated on Sephora and went to HauteLook since I read the post saying that today they were featuring Urban Decay.  They didn't have much to choose from, but luckily they did have several shades of the Urban Decay Matte Eyeshadows which have been discontinued that I love so much.  So I stocked up on some of my favorite shades that they still had available by the time I logged on:

Urban Decay Matte Eyeshadow in:
1) Purple Haze
2) Electric
3) Cult
4) Narcotic
5) Chronic

I got them for $5 each and with shipping and all they ended up averaging $6.19 each so I think I got a great deal on them since they sold for $17 each regularly before shipping.

I really hate the UD has discontinued them. Smiley Sad

But I'm glad I've got some backups...Smiley Happy

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@tenngal: $5 each?! What a bargain! Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy I love when that happens Smiley Happy

Re: Post your recent hauls!

I picked up some things at the UD sale as well ($5 each):


4 eye shadows:

 - Revolver

 - Purple Haze

 - Cult

 - Chronic


1 blush:

 - Quickie


And I also place an order at last night:

 - The Smashbox cream blush duo that's on the homepage for $7

 - Buxom smoky eye stick in 5" stiletto (purple)

 - MUFE Aqua Cream in #14 (plum color)

 - Korres Eye Shadow in Ivory

 - DDF Moisturizing Dew (100 point perk)

 - Caudalie Vinosource Quenching Sorbet-Creme deluxe sample (free with promo code)

I can't wait for my orders to come in the mail.  Smiley Happy

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@vanityprincess:  You lucky girl--that's one heck of a haul!  Smiley Very Happy

Re: Post your recent hauls!

After finding, I swore I wasn't going to pay full retail again...there's something about being in a store in the mood to shop, isn't there?

Ulta had a 20% off coupon. It says it cannot be used on prestige cosmetics, but I've never had a problem. They have a Tarte lip crayon trio--two of the colors will work, one will be too dark (that's where my friends benefit). My Hylexin needed to be replaced, and I needed another PurMinerals Impact mascara (probably one of the best mascaras I've ever used).

Then at Macy's, I got an Estee Lauder Night Complex eye gel. I was surprised the Clinique counter wouldn't give me a sample of their new skin perfector laser treatment cream. I know when my Sephora gets it, they'll give me a sample.

It's not a good time of the month for any sort of splurging so this was fun, but I'll pay for it (next payday isn't until the 10th).

Is this the longest (and most interesting) threat yet????

Re: Post your recent hauls!

@mermade - Thanks!! Smiley Happy
