i've bought so much since the last post but one thing i am really in love with was actually from a 500 point reward gift set from Sephora. it's the NARS velvet lip gloss pencil (or something or other) in the color New Lover. Ladies, i am floored by the amazingness of this pencil. it's a gloss pencil, so it's lighter than a lipstick but has all the color payout of one. it's a really gorgeous peachy pink with a gold shimmer in it and when you put it on and it warms up on your lips it is just the most flattering color ever. it doesn't dry my lips out, and the only downsides are you have to sharpen it and it's not very longwearable. Probably 2 hours tops for me, but it's so easy to reapply that i don't even mind. definitely will be purchasing a full size when my deluxe mini runs out. Razz

working at a makeup counter, despite the bs I deal with, has its perks.

I'm getting $200 gratis for selling clarisonics so I'm getting the following...

- groundwork, rubenesque, constructivist and blacktrack
- studio careblend powder, studio fix NC50, prep + prime natural radiance
- flaming rose, overlacquer

I just got my clinique gratis in the mail: 2 shadow trios, 3 duos, mascara, and about 6-8 lippies.

I also got the naked2 palette and I like it much better than the original. added truth and russian red to my lippie collection not too long ago. lady bug is always out of stock! for some reason I still haven't gotten impassioned. I'm still debating on the careblend powder, if I change my mind then I'll probably get it.

Sigma <3

if you ever need a cheaper option, ELFs flat top powder brush works great with liquids

thank you!! i bought sephora's flat top kabuki from their 'professional' line but it shed like freaking CRAZY so i returned it and have been looking for a nice one since. i've heard lots of good things about Sigma so i decided to just go for it! i will definitely remember about ELF though, i like a few of their products already!

I normally wouldn't spend $18 on a lipstick but they are sooo worth it!! And the liners are actually the closest thing to a permanent marker makeup wise that I have ever seen. It's a bit of a pain in the ass to remove actually. confused2


Try them both, the lipstick and the liner!! I promise not to disapoint!

also, anyone try BB creams yet? I hear they're all the rave now. I might pick one up, not too sure yet!

well shit i'm gonna have to try them both!

i've tried the garnier BB cream and it's nice for days when i don't feel like putting actual foundation on. i only get like 5 or 6 hours wear out of it before i see some of the redness i have in my cheeks poke through. i imagine it would be really nice for summer too because it's super light and quick to apply. i've seen a little bit of a different in my skin even-ness too, which is nice. not bad for the $11 or so that it is, plus you can usually find coupons for it since it's drugstore. it's a pretty decent sized tube too! they've made a new formula recently also for oil control which i am probably going to pick up after i finish this tube, since i have a problem with shine, especially in the summer.

I forgot about a major haul I did a few weeks ago at the mac counter:

studio fix powder and careblend powder. ambering rose, sweet as cocoa and desert rose blushes. constructivist and quite natural PPs. fluidline blacktrack. eyeshadows in twinks, patina, ricepaper, cork, espresso, amber lights, expensive pink, and gleam. and cleanse off oil.

careblend has replaced MSFN as my fav setting powder...more coverage and the finish is just...buttery smooth. the two PPs I got are not as dark as I hoped, but are still great on their own or as a base.

next haul will be lipsticks, gloss and lipliners, a few more eyeshadows, brow pencil and gel, and concealer. oh and plush lash mascara...<3

I tried it and I like it a lot!! You're right about it being super light but it makes my skin feel fantastic and it looks so even!

It's like a tinted moisturizer and a light foundation in one. My verdict is that I'm super impressed! haha thank you for your help!! Smile

I got some neutrogena face wipes today...I've avoided using them for ages, for some reason...but since everyone raves about them I finally caved. I used YES TO CUCUMBERS for years, and I recently tried the MAC wipes, but these are better than both of them!

side note...I actually kinda hate MAC wipes...they leave a residue on the skin and irritate my eyes. I actually have to rinse my eyes really well after using them, which kinda defeats the purpose of the wipe...

I can't use wipes. Sad I have real bad skin and they make me break out. I just use Noxema to wash my face and just a plain ol' dove soap and water combination to remove my eye make up.
