Sephora Package Arrived!

OoOokay, so here's my little Sephora haul! This is the last of my makeup purchases until I complete my Christmas shopping, and then, I'll reward myself! PUAHA! Let's begin!

I only bought two things! Yes, two things! I'm a good girl. Everyone raves about NARS Orgasm, so I wanted this DUO bad! Then! Since my mini shu uemera eyelash curler was a complete bust, I returned that sucker back! To replace the shu, I wanted DiorShow mascara. But since I placed the order online, I found a pretty sweet deal. For the same price as DiorShow, I was able to get the DiorShow Essentials DUO, which came with DiorShow and a mini eye cream! Then, of course, in the promo box, I entered "BEAUTYBOX" and received this mini train case with 15 samples! WOOT WOOT! I'm a sample whore, I know!! Oh yeah, and since my Sephora card reached 100 pts, I got a deluxe sample of UD 24/7 liner.

Well the good thing about samples is that I can do comparison reviews: (Be on the lookout for these posts)

  • Bare Escentuals PrimeTime vs. Prep + Prime vs. Smashbox Photo Finish
  • UD 24/7 Liner vs. MAC Fluidline vs. MAC Powerpoint
  • Clinique All About Eyes vs. Juice Beauty Eye Cream vs. Dior Hydration Creme
Now the bad thing about samples, it's just a tease!!!! It makes you want it in the full size! GAH! Like Armani Diamonds, OH MY GAH! That smells soooo good. The husby liked it too! But he said I have to finish my Coco Chanel Mademoiselle first. Bummer! Oh well, I love that perfume!

This weekend, I'm looking forward to doing more Christmas shopping. I really want to get a lot of it done early! The husby is a bit hard to shop for, GAH! Hopefully some ideas will come up soon! I have a couple, but I really want to get him something goOooOoOod! OoOooh and I cannot wait till next week. A short week at work, WOOO! FINALLY!
Oh yeah, I also ordered Mandom, so if you've tried it, let me know what you think?

MAC Collection: METAL URGE
MAN! Another collection are you serious? GAH!! I need to Christmas shop forreal, BUT! I really do want to try the Powerplum liquidlast liner! Anyone tried MAC's LiquidLast? I've only tried their pencils and fluidline.

two things!? i admire your self-restraint. looks like i missed out on that beauty box of samples...but maybe it's for the better since i don't want to be tempted by more goodies.

i'm looking forward to your primer review. i got the smashbox primer in my 2nd sephora haul, but i've been too lazy to try it out.

and i hear you about shopping for the significant other. ruben's SO hard to shop for since he always buys what he wants. argh! i have to be extra sneaky with his presents. maybe i'll collaborate with his parents this time around..we'll see. good luck shopping!

til next time! :)

Girl, my skin is not that flawless :p There's still a little bit of blemishes from here & there. :)

But yes, the dark circles are gone, too think I sometimes work grave yard shift & only sleeps 4 hours. :)

Anyway, I am thinking of getting the nars orgasm since the super orgasm is too shimmery :/
