    Default Your latest make-up/cosmetics purchases?

    I couldn't resist the cute little vintage Bourjois pots I saw in Tallinn. My picks of the bunch were Ashes of Lilies eyeshadow (shade is called 04 Noir Precieux) and Ashes of Roses blusher (54 Rose Frisson).

    Those tiny pots are gorgeous! They would go nicely with a bottle of L'Aromarine fragrance!

    Those are absolutely adorable! I think I would have to buy them all if I ever saw those in real life. I just bought some necessary stuff from Lancome recently. They did a nice makeover on me to go with my newly growing in silver hair. Very peachy-pink & delicate, which suits me now. I was surprised how nice they made me look, lol! My hair used to be dark and I wore completely different colors in clothing and makeup.

    What a fun thread! These days it seems easier to plop down dollars on makeup than on fragrance. Yesterday I bought a Nars Jungle Red lipliner for my handbag and a Smashbox eye shadow in Cabernet.

    I just recently purchased this:

    http://www.thebalm.com/makeup/staniac.htm

    In Beauty Queen. I like it. The color is buildable and it doesn't seem to dry my lips out like some stains tend to. But my all-time favorite stain is Urban Decay Lip Envy in Greedy. Perfection.

    I've made quite a few make-up purchases recently. It must be some kind of crazed frenzy for more and better!

    - Maybelline Full n' Soft Mascara in black
    - Clarins Waterproof Eyeliner (black)
    - Clinique Cream Shapers (in Egyptian and Bright Gold)
    - Revlon Colourstay foundation.

    My mum is also a mad Nutrimetics lady. She LOVES ordering their stuff from the catalogue each month. I put a few things for myself in the latest order: liquid eyeliner, coverstick, loose powder and foundation primer.

    Looking at it all, I realise I've really splashed out this month!! Oh dear

    My latest purchase was a bit of a challenge as I have oily skin. For YEARS I have been using Cornsilk pressed powder as I don't really use foundation on a daily basis as it is too heavy for my skin. I didn't realize that Aveda made a pressed powder as well. For awhile, I was using the MAC blot powder which is nice but sometimes it's not always convenient to get to a MAC store. So I broke down and got the Aveda pressed powder in Honey. Well, I am so pleasantly surprised! And it even has a little bit of coverage too (the Cornsilk and Blot Powder were translucent) And at the end of the day, my face doesn't feel like the Exxon Valdez crashed into it hahahahaha. Two thumbs up for sure!

    Today I bought:

    Physicians Formula Mineral Wear loose powder (for blemish prone skin)
    Physicians Formula blemish healing concealer

    I also got a trial size Murad's Acne Complex Kit. I'm really looking forward to trying that out. Maybe it'll be my miracle cure I've been looking for to help w/ my adult acne.

    I got a selection of Stila Lip Glazes in a cute little case from Santa (I know it's not a purchase, but actually it was, since I'm the breadwinner who funds Santa in our house!). It's a little rainbow of lip colors. Fun!

    P.S. Cologne Junkie..the Murad kit is very good. Still, I recommend you try the Alpha Hydrox brand of cream for your adult acne. It's done wonders for my skin, at a great price...pm me if you want me to send you a sample. And no I am in no way affiliated!

    Has anyone else tried the new Cover Girl Outlast Lipstains? I was in Walgreen's last week and they were Buy One, Get One 50% off. I bought Bit o' Blossom and Plum Pout. Am I ever pleasantly surprised!
    I love lipstains as a general rule, anyway, but usually I have to buy higher-end brands. I find these Cover Girl lipstains very comparable to the old Urban Decay Lipstain 'markers'. The first application looks very natural but they are buildable color. They don't dry my lips out at all and I do not discern any nasty fragrance or taste. Yay for Cover Girl! I'm already planning to go back and get two more.

    I just received my order from Lipstick Queen: a tube of Saint Natural, and a tube of Saint Berry. I have been wanting to try these for a long time, and so far, I am impressed. The color is sheer and natural looking, and the texture is very moist.

    I just bought my 2nd box of Lunasol Micro Finish Powder. I've never repeat the same face powder before but this is "the one" for me.

    My last visit to the duty free, I wanted so much to buy a few Dior lipgloss but kept telling myself better save that money for some new perfume!

    these are sweet too, the lipgloss tins:

    got them for a holiday gift on sale.

    urban decay eyeshadow palette for my daughter.

    the last purchase for myself was Kiss Kiss Guerlain lipstick in Rose Entenant.
    I think anyone could wear this creamy peach neutral.

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue.

    Bought 2 CoverGirl Lash Blast Waterproof Mascara online and did the road test. It doesn't smudge, run or clumps and I am very happy with the result. I have been using the Maxfactor Calorie 2000 Aqua Lash since I was 15, but it is getting harder to find nowadays. I think I will continue to buy Lash Blast if MF2000 extinct.

    Laura Mercier Eye Book - Ha! It has all the "right" colour!

    I have to post a big rave for the Chapstick True Shimmer lip balms! I have the Botanical Berry and the Peppermint Rush (still searching for the tropical flavored one).

    The Berry one has a slight pinkish shimmer, the Peppermint has a bluish-silver shimmer. They feel really good on the lips, are not drying, and taste and smell good too! And CHEAP! They cost about $2.50ish. love them!

    Well, I have some department store gift cards I got for the holidays.... I guess I could get some new lipglass or liquid eyeliner I've been looking at from the MAC counter. Or, I could suck it up and renew my MAC discount card so I don't have to pay that retail price and I could use my gift cards on fragrance (yeah, much better idea)

    I bought some Revlon eyeliner the other day and I just got my boyfriend some Eternity. He really doesn't care what he wears but I love the scent of it on him!

    Ah, Le Train Bleu. My credit card company is very fond of that site!

    Lip gloss is one item that has never correlated quality with price, imo. I splurged on a few Chanel Glossimers awhile back and they were heavy, sticky, gloopy - ugh. The $2 Lipsmackers (esp. the Dr Pepper one!) are still the best I've found.

    Today I was at Target buying Lord knows what (hahahaha) and I saw they had the CoverGirl Lash blast on sale in a special package that you get 2 tubes for 9.99. Hmmm I just may go back and get one more. I love that stuff!

    On Stockmann the sale has reached the stage where everything is -60%... I got Shiseido lip gloss in G12 Mango Passion, it's a great match with OPI Tangerini Bikini nail polish!

    I've becoming absolutely addicted to NARS eyeshadow. The colors are so saturated. Drat that Sephora! If they hadn't opened down the street from me I'd be a richer (read that as less broke) woman!

    I'm posting about what I didn't buy.

    I was proud of myself for sitting on my hands as long as I did the other day when Bare Escentuals Minerals offered a $97 Today's Special Value on QVC. A similar kit with different colors and brushes will arrive for an additional $97 every three months and dagnabbit, I was dying to get it, but couldn't afford it and have quite a bit already. I have not felt that way about buying any perfume in a long time, my mouth was literally watering, and I am so amazed at the self control I showed. My hand reached for the computer many times during the day, but I didn't go through with it. I am addicted to that line of makeup and the colors, wow, it's like being a kid in a candy store.

    Thank you for listening.

    Clinique Soft Shimmer eye shadow-- a pearly white. Clinique discontinued my favorite pink in a duo, Be Mine. I started using that because Shiseido discontinued my original favorite pink in a duo, Shell. What's a gal to do? Shiseido has the silkiest formula, too.

    After taking a detour on Crayfish's tea perfume thread, I ended up ordering a set of two lip balms from SalonTea: The Writer (chai) and Society Hostess (vanilla black tea). They're creamy, and they smell nice, but I don't really get "tea" from them. Hostess smells like sugar cookies, and The Writer smells like cinnamon. (They also don't work very well as a solid perfume! )

    I have recently purchased:
    MAC Dame Edna Gladiola lipstick and Possum Nose Pink gloss. These were a sudden and stress-related mistake. Boyfriend ogling beer wench at Renaissance Faire? The solution is obviously violet-based fuchsia lipstick and coral gloss.

    Successful purchases:
    Strawberry Blonde lipgloss. The return of the fabled Strawberry Blonde, in lipgloss formula. Lovely.
    Quick Tease lipgloss. Migrates to lip line.

    Coming soon: Date Night.

    MAC and Nars are the only cult lines available here. I was never a MAC user until I realized that I needed to become one.
