    Default Any recent purchases?

    Apart from perfume, have you bought anything lately?

    I got myself a jar of Stephane Marais Cream Foundation and am *very* impressed. I think this might end up as my favourite foundation ever and I've used many (probably 50+).

    Also bought a skincare kit from Dermalogica with travel sizes of cleanser, toner, exfoliator and moisturizer. I chose the kit for dry to very dry skin and like the products so far. I might buy full sizes of the cleanser and moisturizer.

    My most recent purchases were two Dior kh™l pencils and yet another Dior Addict lipstick but that was in August or September...

    I've already gone through one tube of the shampoo: it's terrific!

    Just bought this for my mum for Christmas.

    Maybe the ladies of the board could let me know if the colours look OK!

    So far I guess she will be giving away the bright red lippy, but I can live with that!

    She does like Arden make-up.

    CoL, that's a FABULOUS gift for your mom! Wow! The red lipstick is Red Diamond -- I used to wear it all the time! I had no idea it was still available.

    I've been saving my money, too (sort of). Not for NYC, but for a trip to the Dior counter! ;D Plus, I want to try the new Estee Lauder mascara -- though I can't decide between EL or Dior right now. The only items I've bought are two lipsticks that Perfume Hound talked about under the Red Lipstick thread -- L'Oreal Volume Perfect #400 and Almay #36 -- and L'Oreal Ideal Balance Foundation because I ran out of Feel Naturale and it's discontinued! :-[

    Hi Loney . . . don't forget about the castor oil, for your eyelashes. Joan Crawford said it makes them grow like mad. Eyebrows, too. See if you can find that Red Dragon lipstick . . . I forgot to check, during my last trip to Chicago. I really like going to women's counters, Loney! Usually I know more than the sales associates . . . really freaks them out. You should see me 'examining' clothes . . . let's go shopping!

    Well yesterday I got some MaryKay Mascara. Its called Velocity. I got it because of the colors Blue and Violet (I have hazel eyes) And also because it says its water resistant (not waterproof) and supposed to not smudge.
    Well it worked great and our resident makeup artist (I work at a dayspa) showed me how to do my eyeliner to enhance the color. Normally Im not a Mary Kay fan but I give this mascara 2 thumbs up...I also got the eye primer which is supposed to help shadow stay on and not crease but I havent used it yet. Will try it tomorrow.

    Stephane Marais eye brush #. The perfect, allround eye brush. Picks up, holds amd deposits colour beautifully. I feel my brush collection is complete with this.

    MAC - Prunella eye kohl. A smudgy pencil in a muted eggplant shade.

    Chanel eyeshadow - Tabou. A muted purple. Chanel single eyeshadows are one of the best-textured I know of.

    Stephane Marais Bronzer #1. A very light bronzer that makes actually makes me look healthy, not dirty or orange. Highly recommended. Cool packaging (it's pink! *gasp*)

    http://www.spacenk.co.uk/SpaceNK/ima.../0199_4593.jpg

    L'Oreal micro-dermabrasion kit. A lot of people love this exfoliating cream with aluminum oxide, but I'm not sure. I used it twice and I feel like I never have to exfoliate again. Too harsch for me.

    Dior Natural Glow self-tanner for the face. I never look as pale and washed-out as I do this time of year, so I thought I'd fake a little colour. Subtly tinted and doesn't give too much colour. You may have to reapply to look real tan, but that's not what I'm after. Heavily perfumed.

    The Dior Addict Red Interference lipstick is next on my list to buy!

    I did, however, buy an Estee Lauder lipstick -- it's the Pure Color Red Attitude (#167) and OMG is it ever dark and goth! I saw it in my Saks catalog and it looked like a gorgeous brownish-red, so I tested it on my hand in the store and it looked even more gorgeous. But on my lips it's a very blackish red... so beware of this one. I can't wear it at all but have no idea what to do with it now, though I may return it.

    I also bought:

    Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss in Wet Plum (#14)
    Estee Lauder Artist's Lip Pencil Crayon in Russet Writer (#10)
    Estee Lauder Automatic Brow Pencil Duo (w/brush and 1 refill) in Dark Brown (#05)
    Paula Dorf Brow Fix
    Lancome Hypnose mascara
    Lancome Cils Booster (Mascara Enhancing Base)
    Lancome Star Gloss Brush-on Lip Shine in Angelic

    I think that's all I've bought recently... [smiley=wink.gif]

    I have Diorshow and love it. I also bought new Shu Uemura Fiber Extension mascara and it deserves praise for accentuating lashes without being too artificial. I can also reccomend their new foundation (forgot the name) which is water in fluid (whatever that means). Very natural-looking and dewy at the same time.
    I also bought Nars blush in Orgasm which is very flattering.

    Was depressed because I didn't receive my package from Frederic Malle last Friday (it's been three weeks!) so I bought a small jar of Clinique Repairwear day cream and got travel size jars of Repairwear Eye, Repairwear Night and 7-day scrub as a GWP. Great products, but I'd rather smell of Musc Ravageur. *[smiley=cry.gif]

    A while ago I bought Laura Mercier's Foundation Powder. Don't think I mentioned it before. I rarely wear makeup nowadays, but this stuff is excellent, because It's easy to apply just where you need it. It's very pigmented, so there's no need to sweep it all over. You use so little it doesn't look like powder at all. Definitely overprized though.

    hi, new here and LOVE this site! It has definitely been bookmarked!

    Patricia Wexler skincare stuff has been my most recent obsession. I'm usually a hard core m/u and hair product junkie but I realize I've been neglecting my skin. I've purchased the Wexler starter set and some full sizes of the microbrasion system, cleanser, MMPi serum, under-eye brightening cream and no injection lip plumper.

    Sephora FF sale: GoSmile B1 system and maintenance compact, Clinique Buttershine in First Love, Nars All about Eve e/s duo, Laura Mercier metallic cream e/s in mercury and gold. Trying to prevent myself from going back for more! Although I probably won't keep all of this.

    Well, I've been on a OPI binge--their new "Mexican" line has some pretty shades.

    I'm wearing "My Chihuahua Bites" which is red-orange, but turned around and bought three others:

    Los Cabos Coral is light creamy coral
    OPI Por Favor is lavender pink

    I also got You're Such a Kabuki Queen -- tru medium pink. The colors together remind me of the ad campaign for Roses Enchantees !!
