It’s been a good makeup week

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 6 - 2010

Indulge me, I rarely do haul posts.  But I’m really loving the things that I picked up this week.  And just look how restrained I was at my local CCO (the MAC).

At the beginning of the week my Stila bits turned up from CheapSmells.. oh! I haven’t included my Stila Topaz Kajal in the photo!  Oh well, I got that too… But anyway, look at that lovely taupe (bottom left).  That’s Stila Cloud, a very cool toned shimmery silver taupe.

I finally took the plunge and ordered a Shu Uemura IR Beige 800 eyeshadow… I was struggling between the IR and ME versions, but felt the ME version swatched a little too pink for me.

I also took advantage of the Barielle BOGOF offer and picked up two colours from the Spring Wildflowers Collection (A Bouquet for Ava & June Bug) and two from the Summer High Steppin’ Collection (Belly Dance & Electric Boogie)

Hmm what else…

Oh, I nabbed Clinique’s (relatively) new High Lengths mascara that I’ve had my eye on for a little while… super funky alienesque brush!

Finally, I was (semi) well-behaved in my local CCO on Friday.  I don’t have a MAC counter near me… so I usually target the MAC stand quite heavily when I raid the Gunwharf CCO.  I picked up: Melon pigment, Blonde MSF and Femme-Fi eyeshadow.  Pat on the back for resisting Moon River from the Grand Duo collection and Flower Mist Dew Beauty Powder from the Ungaro collection.  (Please don’t tell me I NEED those two items in my life… I totally bend to peer pressure!)

What have you bought this week?

    I love Melon pigment. Its pretty much one of my faves. I wish there was a CCO near me I would love to go and browse :(

    I’ve been quite good this week. I bought some sunscreen and some of that Neutrogena 2 in 1 wash/mask stuff.

    Femme Fi is possibly my favourite eyeshadow ever, its so versatile. I got mine from a the CCO up in Ellesmere Port when I was visiting family nearby and its probably the best £6 I’ve spent make-up wise this year.

    I ordered 3 of the same polishes. I got Myrza’s Meadow instead of Bouquet and I just read two dire reviews!

    I haven’t bought any make up related items this week (checking if fever is afflicting me…seems that not !). I don’t know what is into me !
    Melon pigment doesn’t look good on me : it’s too orangey for my skin tone….It’s sad as it’s a multi purpose pigment (fantastic highlight from what I heard …)

    You must live near me, so. Gunwarph CCO is my nearest too – love it. If you don’t wanna head to Brighton, it’s the biz for MAC stuff. And cheaper, too.

    The melon pigment is amazing – it’s the only one I use frequently! :)
