    I don't have a Sephora where I live, so when we visit Kansas City, I love to stop by there. Spent nearly an hour and a half browsing there!

    Left with:
    Dior Addict Lip Glow
    Urban Decay eyeshadow in Midnight Cowboy
    Sephora Insider's birthday gift: eye shadow, eyeliner, and mascara (all Sephora brand)

    (I was very tempted on hundreds of other things too!)

    Well on Wednesday I bought in Debenhams with the 10% discount mega day thing, MAC lipstick in Fluid and John Masters Organic conditioner which was half price and got the extra 10% off.

    I ordered an Urban Decay eyeshadow in Goddess and a Smashbox waterproof eyeliner in Starstruck so I could get that Shalimar mini. It's the new bottle style, SO cute!

    I've stretched my last Prescriptives False Eyelashes mascara as far as I can stretch it, so today I've attempted to replace it with Diorshow. It has a nice, big, plush brush.

    recently splurged on a Chanel Rouge Coco lippie in Rivoli. Has the fragrance of rosewater as an added pleasure.

    I've been wanting a different lip look, leaning towards glosses again, and I've been having some luck with drugstore cosmetics (meaning, getting better at selecting colors without trying them on first .) So yesterday I bought a Revlon Mineral Lipglaze in Eternal Blossom, a salmony pink that is shiny but not reflective, and long-lasting, as glosses are concerned.

    I only discovered Sephora this past August and the first few times I went I only looked at perfumes. However, I did happen to notice the 98% of other stuff (make-up/body related) and I believe I either got samples or something but all of a sudden, I'm ALL about make-up! I have gotten
    Bare minerals make-up
    Buxum lip gloss
    Venom lip gloss
    Stila lip stain

    I'm having fun playing with my new goodies.

    MAC Lady Danger, a matte yellow-based lipstick, and a matching lipliner, Redd. Still not used to the way the quite yellow red of Lady Danger looks on me alone, but it feels like a challenge. I can see that it looks good, it's just so different from my usual neutral and blue-based reds. I love it mixed with a little Russian Red.

    I've gone nuts with makeup lately. Chanel eyeshadow quad in Demure, bronzing powder in Desert Corail, blush duo tweed effect in Tweed Rose, Highlighter face pen, brow pencil taupe, eye pencil graphite, lip pencil Nude. Rouge Allure lip stick in Crazed, and two glosses: Paiette & Pagoda. (I had a gift card.)

    Then Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion (the best!) Two MAC paint pots: Painterly & Bare Study and the new nail polish set in the tartan tin: "5 Naughty Little Vices Nail Lacquers"

    This will last me for years!

    I got Dior's Extase mascara- it's supposed to give you the false eyelash effect- don't see it to be honest but there you go - it's still good stuff - gives you nice long black lashes .
    I also got a Dior lipstick in Brun Samarcande ( 434 ) which is a brown / bronze pink tone. The name reminds me of Hermes, Poivre Samarkande !
    I also bought Clarins Facial Shaping Lift lotion - lets see if it works to lift this old face !

    I bought Cover Girl's Lash Blast Fusion mascara in very black. It's just ok, IMO. It promises to add length and volume, but I'm just seeing the volume really. I love the color, though.

    Ordered a full-size jar of Alima Satin Matte Foundation, and a full-size of their finishing powder as well - I've been trying out Alima foundation shades during the fall and settled on a custom mix. I have never been this pleased with a foundation before, to be honest, and never have I met a foundation I would wear daily before this one, either.

    Yesterday I bought refills of my Diorshow black mascara and Chanel Rouge Coco lippie in Mademoiselle. I tried Orchidee, which is a dark and bright pink, but not as bold as magenta. I like it. It's a little bit sheer and a little pearlescent. I might have to go back for it.

    I am having fun today experimenting with a boxed set of 7 eye liner pencils picked up last night from discount store Ross for cheap.
    I tested last night for allergic reaction and hooray- had none. These are very pigment intense colors but feel light as air on.
    Like.

    Also picked up a pack of 7 mini nail polishes in metallic shades of purple, plum, olive,silver,teal.coral and fuschia.

    Just what I needed- a cheap and cheerful pick-me-up.

    I sell Avon so all the makeup I wear comes from them, it's amazing for the price so I don't even look anywhere else anymore, but I've been going "basic" on makeup lately so the makeup purchases aren't super exciting, but for haircare I do not like Avon stuff and do love to take good care of the hair!

    This weekend I took advantage of the AveYou Groupon and got:
    Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
    Curl Junkie Coffee-Coco Curl Creme (really amazing smell, BTW)
    Curl Junkie Curl Goddess Gel

    And sleekhair had, just in time, a sale on the favorite curl cream in my household, AG Re:Coil, and free shipping on $75 so did buy 3 of those too!

    Good hair days on the way.

    Also took myself and the 7 year old daughter to the nail salon for pedicures today, I have deep blood-red toenails now, seems like a color vampires would favor

    I've gone a bit crazy at sephora, mac, & saks... (especially with bronzers... better than skin cancer though!)

    Guerlain Sheer Bronzing Powder (when Im looking for a more natural/pink suntan)
    Guerlain Terra Inca Body Bronzing Powder
    MAC Espresso, Brule, Omega, Soot, Carbon, Smut, Electric Eel, Deep Durban, Indian Ink, Shroom, and Cork E/S pans
    MAC 168, 187, 208, 239, 242 brushes
    MUFE HD Powder
    NARS Laguna & Casino bronzers (all over/contour)
    NARS Albatross Highlighter
    NARS Deep Throat Blush

    and some nars primers/preps, and a concealer from smashbox.

    I really like the NARS powders. They can be anywhere from sheer to bold. Very nice! I'm wondering how the multiple compares in consistency. Anyone have experience with those from NARS?

    Did I pick well gals?

    Thank you Mimi. NARS are quite pricey, but they are sooooo nice. They are highly pigmented (moreso for the darker shades) and so finely milled they feel like silk. Aren't the cases so darn cute? The mirrors are so huge and wonderful to use. Compared side-by-side, Guerlain and others feel minuscule.

    Yes, I agree Teger! I use South Beach and Luxor by NARS and I will be trying Orgasm when I am done with these multi use sticks. They are wonderful. For highlighting I recommend Luxor- it brings a light glow to any complexion and highlights the upper eye spectacularly - great stuff. I got many compliments on my skin glowing using Luxor- I am a big cheat ! *LOL*

    Thanks for the suggestion Mimi. I just so happened to be looking at the Luxor multi to use as a highlighter of sorts, as albatross can be overly 'shiny' at times, while Luxor is less-so. I will have to give it a try during the next Sephora trip. (along with Copacabana)

    About those pricey Guerlain creams. I received a bunch of serums with my last binge. So among those was a Guerlain Orchidee Imperiale White "exceptional complete care age-defying & blah blah blah." Having fair-medium skin I only need lightness under my eyes. For this use, I was really impressed with the product. It noticeably lightened/brightened the under-eye area after only a week of use. So, I went to see how much it was. . . . $450. Four hundred and fifty dollars for a serum. It works, but I'll try to haggle a few more samples which are 3ml (FB=30ml) before spending that much. Or perhaps look for cheaper alternatives.

    Mr. Smokey Meowers is a great name. Smokey and Cinder sound so similar. They must be spiritually connected

    Well I bought Nars eyeshadow duo in Grand Palais today, its from the Fall collection. I had a 10 bonus voucher with Space NK so it didn't cost much. A shimmer Silver Taupe and matt Dusky Deep Rose. I am slightly strange as I can wear pink eyeshadow without a problem.

    I bought from make-up mania online- some Femme cake mascara (which I have been looking for since Maybelline discontinued theirs years ago). YAY! No more clumps and feeling guilty about plastic tubes in landfills because a cake of this stuff lasts a looooong time. if you are not looking for the huge voluminous lashes the polymer-type mascaras bring, this is a good option.

    Also bought a Graftobian lipliner in Tawny. I don't know how many lipliners I've purchased in the last 36 years, but I finally found the perfect natural looking lipliner color for me.

    This purchase is more about treatment but I have had noticable results with Cane and Austin glycolic resurfacing pads as they seem to brighten my aging skin and definately help keep my huge pores unblocked, even seeing some shrinking and evening out of tone. Decided to continue using them.

    OK I admit I hadn't bought a blusher since the 80's...decided to get a new one today. Got tarte brand- matte but not real flat, but not sparkle-y. Sparkle-y only works on young ladies with perfect skin and stage performers IMO, not an on the upper side of middle aged woman trying not to look clown-ish.

    two new eyeshadow application brushes- and a Revlon Cusrom eyes palette, which seems to be causing some irritation, dang it. The colors were good.

    Yesterday bought some new makeup brushes- from Michael's in the artist supply section at 40% off- couldn't resist upgrading eye and blush application brushes long worn out at a very good price.

    Really splurged also at sephora and got 3 highly touted Make Up For Ever Products- Aqua Cream eye shadow in shade 13 (champagne). It's a bit shimmery to my taste but is a subtle color and also makes an excellent base. This stuff is waterproof and absolutely crease proof, even on my ever- creasing eyes. Also an Aqua Cream eye liner in a perfect tawny color. Both of these dry quickly, so application has to be fast if you want to blend at all. But they last through the whole day and evening. Yay
    Also got a lipstick from the same line which is a great color but it's so highly pigmented, it seems a little drying on my lips.

    Why does everything have shimmer and glitter in it these day??? Very maddening for people with no airbrush artist available.
    And I am soooo not used to paying so much for cosmetiics, discount bargain hunter and cheapskate that I am. That money could have got a airflight on Southwest somewhere, so I'd better use this stuff up till it's gone...

    I don't know what has gotten into me lately with makeup- I just ordered 4 eyeshadows on-line. They were matte colors. Can hardly find matte anymore, so I snapped them up.

    I bought Estee Lauder's Lash Primer Plus - this is really good stuff. It's the first time I have ever used a lash primer- I always sort of 'poo poo-ed' lash primers as not necessary but honestly- it works !
    Bigger fuller lashes, it conditions and I cannot do without it now. ( My fave mascara is Magnascopic by EL ( - these two products together are brilliant. )

    I had not bought a Lancome lipstick in years - ever since I stopped wearing big bold red lipcolor. Anyhow since I have always loved the smell and the taste ( ) of Lancome lipsticks I got L'Absolu Nu in Sienna Lace. Color no 254. It's a brownish ,pink red I guess but not too red at all.
