    Two Butter London nail polishes for myself: Marrow & West End Wonderland. I bought a discontinued "The Balm" palette at TJMAXX for Sofie.

    Butter London nail polishes for me, too: Dosh and Scoundrel.

    But looks like I haven't updated my BL purchases for ages so I might as well list what I had before these two:
    Artful Dodger, Big Smoke, British Racing Green, Bumster, Crumpet (discontinued), Henley Regatta, MacBeth, Minger, Old Blighty, Pillar Box Red, Rosie Lee, Tea with the Queen, Teddy Boy (discontinued), Thames, Victoriana (my favourite!)

    Somehow I happened to buy YSL nail polish Grey Tuxedo today.

    My three little cuties from Butter London arrived today. I bought Branwens Feather, Big Smoke and British Racing Green. They are very beautiful in the bottle.

    I made a quick trip to Sephora today to pick up my free "birthday" body wash and also grabbed a new eyeshadow: Urban Decay Stardust in Retrograde.

    I got Laura Mercier's foundation primer and illuminating tinted moisturizer.
    Primers - these things actually do work ! I'm amazed !
    I've been using a sample of the LM original foundation primer for a few days and this stuff is The Best .
    Finally , I'm branching out of Estee Lauder , Dior and Clarins.
    I'm really quite enthusiastic about the Laura Mercier primer .

    Mimi, I have to agree with you about the LM primer and tinted illuminating moisturizer - they are wonderful! I had received samples of each and it wasn't long before I had to get the full size... the best cosmetic discovery for me this summer..

    LM Tinted Moisturiser was always the best on the market. I haven't used her primer for quite a while now, but it was a staple for me for years. I moved to Smashbox and Prescriptives and stocked up on the latter when the company closed.

    I really want her Delux Holiday Palette with the eyeshadows,blushes, eyeliners and three brushes. But will have to wait until next pay day. I do have a £10 Space NK voucher and will use that towards it.

    Somehow happened to buy two small nail polishes from YSL: Black Bronze and Black Lapis. There's is only 6 ml in each bottle, so they are ridiculously overprized, but the colours are - oh - so beautiful.

    That is a gorgreous set, indeed.

    I stopped in sephora last night after a long day of looking for and failing to find new eye glass frames that thrilled me. I picked up the Tarte set of 6 smoldereyes waterproof eye pencils. $39 for the set vs $24 a piece was a no brainer great deal. I wish they weren't quite so glittery, but the colors are magnificently pigmented and they don't move once set. This set has champagne, deep purple, chocolate brown, olive green, black onyx, charcoal grey. Let the experimentation begin!

    Those look really interesting and the reviews on Sephora are really good. I'm tempted!

    I agree, lovely palette, with very nice colours! Unfourtunally Laura Mercier isn't for sale in the stores in my part of my country, so I can't look at the palette IRL. Otherwise it might have become mine at once!

    To my new "blonde" eyeshadowpalette (see abowe) I got an almost nude lipstick, YSL Rouge pour Courure No 05, a warm light beige.

    Oo! That *does* look nice. Is that a matte purple I see? How do you like it so far? Does it smear?

    No not matt, the middle shade is African Violet and has shimmer as does the darker Merlot. The Wine Eye liner is matt. No never had a Laura Mercier smear but I do use an eye base, a Laura Mercier one.

    Margareta - The Dior Incognito palette is so, so lustworthy, it is the one I want most, Can't justify it at the moment because have gone nuts at Sephora this week during their 20% off sale.

    Anyway, some of you beauty nerds might be interested in my latest Chanel/Nars purchases, I made a video for some other beauty nerds on the internet. Bonus adorable dogs at the end.

    EDIT: Ha, I didnt even catch this = there is some evidence at the very end of my paranoia re: running out of Honore des Pres Sexy Angelic. 6 bottles (I have more in the fridge) that I got from SpaceNK for super cheap - I reeeally need to clean up my sitting room, right now it is just full of cosmetics and perfume.

    Besame lippie deluxe sampler "Your Perfect Red" and a tube of Red Hot Red. Supposedly a reproduction of vintage shades from the 30's, 40's and 50's. I must say I these are easily the most wearable reds I have found.

    Nars Hanamichi eyeshadow palette. Spotted photos of it earlier in the year and fell in love. Finally arrived my local SpaceNK at the weekend and I had a £10 on my InDulge loyality card. Was told to wait until today as I would get double points on my card. So this thing of beauty is now sitting on my sideboard to be stared at. LOL

    I have not purchased any makeup or cosmetic items (other than perfume) since last spring (I think). I'm ready for a new primer, my old one is about to run out (I like MAC's). I would like to find some kind of illuminating product for the holidays. I would also like to find a blush/bronzer that is very light and sheer and that works for pale skin, now that it is no longer summer. I suppose I'll go to Sephora this week. I have to brave the mall anyway because Christmas is a week away, and I need to do a little shopping. I like reading this thread for ideas!
