    Dior Lip Glow Reviver Balm

    It´s great
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    Oh, dear.

    I wanted to buy Nars Mekong, a brown shadow from the fall collection. It wasn't available locally, so I went shopping over in Jax and they had it in the Blue Mercury store. The SA was terribly distracted by recommending peach blushes to a customer, so I had some time to look around. I decided--much against type--that I liked the Silk Road duo and that I also liked Damage lipstick, even though it is a sheer.

    When the SA finally had time to help me, I ordered up all three of these items. When I got home I noticed that she had given my Mykonos, a cream shadow, instead ot the Mekong. Jax is too far for me to go to return and the gas would cost me as much as a lipstick, so I had no choice but to try the Mykonos, which looked like a bronze/rose with gold shimmer. It applied as lilac. Did nothing for me. Layered the darker side of the Silk Road over the top (Silk Road is very sparkly) and then lined with brown shadow. Looked great. Went to Sephora on line and ordered the Mekong.

    This is how I spent $110.00 on a single brown eyeshadow.

    Today I went to replenish my Prescriptives False Eyelashes mascara, and the SA said she'd heard a rumor of the line being discontinued. I'm thinking I may have to stockpile it.
    I also wanted a new tube of Shiseido Salmon Rose lipstick, but it appears to have been discontinued, as well. The SA was very patient, helping me find a reasonable match. I ended up with Estee Lauder Mocha Pink. I used EL cosmetics about ten years ago and due to associations with that time I tend to steer clear of that counter. But I put on this Mocha Pink and remembered why I kinda liked their lipsticks-- the waxy, slightly sweet lipstick smell. So this one will work!

    just so you know, Lauder is shutting down Prescriptives as of the new year. They're gonna keep selling stuff online until supplies run out so if you regularly use anything i'd get it. I think they've already stopped production on everything but Calyx.

    Let's see.....I purchased NYX Doll Eyes Mascara in the Volume formula for the second time.
    I'm going to get some M.A.C. Studio Fix foundation in the very near future.
    Also purchased my third shade of Cover Girl Lip stain marker. I forget this one's name but it's a nice, not too bright red. I have another one in a mauve tint and one in Plum. I LOVE these!

    I just bought a mascara from the Hard Candy line at Walmart, which I assume is a new line they're carrying? I haven't tried it yet, but I'm hoping for ginormous lashes and I will report back after I test run it.

    I just got this By Terry palette. The eyeshadows are Amethyst and Champagne and the gloss is in Black Orchid. I really like the brushes that come with By Terry palettes. The case has a magnetic closure that is nice too.

    I bought some L'Oreal mascara at the drugstore yesterday. No big whoop there, but I've been really getting into nail polish lately. I think I'm becoming addicted. I've bought around nine or ten new ones in the past few weeks. I'm going to Sephora today to look for Illamasqua's Rampage, a deep dark forest green. It's calling me.

    How are you finding this? Are you seeing any results? I am so curious about this product but am a bit scared of the skin/iris darkening possibility.

    Love the deep dark greens! I purchased OPI Here Today, Aragon Tomorrow and found it too dark. Under indirect lighting and from a distance it looked black. The minty greens are pretty but too light for the season. I am not familiar with Illamasqua but will check it out!

    I was debating between Rampage & Muse (dark teal). I bought Muse, but the green is calling me, too.

    For anyone who's interested: Illamasqua's colors.

    Ooh, tang, lots of pretty colors! I need to make a trip up to Washington Square for my bare minerals soon, anyway, I'll have to stop by Sephora, as well. I realy like Phallic and Unnatural. Milf is pretty for summer, too (cannot abide that name, though ).

    Arrrgh! Our local Sephora doesn't carry Illamasqua! I went to Ulta instead and tried a couple of dark greens (very nice SA there let me try them on a piece of clear tape over my nail), but I didn't like the dark colors on my hands. I LOVE those dark greens & teals...just not on me. So I bought a pale lime sherbet green by OPI called Gargantuan Green Grape...
    (not my nails - this is from somebody's blog),
    and a little Essie holiday set with Mint Candy Apple (pale mint green) and a couple of other colors...

    These just make my eyes happy. I'll be in Florida over Christmas, so they actually are sorta seasonal.

    Does that name actually mean something?

    Tang, Muse is beautiful!

    P.S. I also checked out their fragrances, but nothing caught my fancy. I thought I might like Idole, but meh.

    That Green Grape is pretty, too! The Essie set looks perfect for a Florida Christmas.

    MILF is an acronym for a vulgar phrase (Wikipedia page)... I had to roll my eyes at some of Illamasqua's naming choices. They're like the ELDO of nail polish.

    Those two caught my eye, too. I could also see being tempted by some of their bright colors next summer.

    Illamasqua's names made me think of Urban Decay's nail polish, and now I'm eyeing their Apocalyptic Nail Kit. I wish more companies offered mini bottles.

    That Essie set makes my eyes happy too!! I think the dark green may be too much for me too but Muse and Milf are sooo nice. I don't think I have seen the llamasqua line at my Sephora.

    Well I bought Nars Multiple in Portofino today after much testing with a sweet & helpful Nars SA. I have South Beach which is more of a bronzer, so I "needed" something of a blush. Portofino is lovely and I think I have found the PERFECT pink/coral blush.

    I have Nars powder blush in Orgasm (speaking of ridiculous names lol) but I love the sticks- they last longer on my skin. The shimmer/frost is actually barely noticeable in natural light on my skin.

    Well, I'm *kind of* kicking myself for getting the Nars as now I want this. Organic AND the two products are less $$$ than the Nars. I have already bought one for my older daughter. Awesome!

    I ordered a couple Kevyn Aucoin eyeliners w/brushes today from the HauteLook sale: http://www.hautelook.com/product/711965
    It's the first time for me to try his eyeliners - I usually use Bobbi Brown gel liners, but at this price, I figure they're worth a try. I'm getting them in green and blue.
