Merry Christmas to ME??

I'm treating myself, I deserve it! PUAHAH! Plus, I'm done Christmas shopping and work has been a bit crazy. Oookay, so on Friday afternoon, I received my MAC package. Can I just say how good of a deal this is? First of all, let's start with the Charming Garnet set. It includes Belightful powder, Bare Slimshine, 181 brush, travel size Zoomlash, and travel size black liner (I forgot the name). The black liner was not supposed to be in there, at least it wasn't included in the set. So a nice freebie for me, wooO! The set was only $30, and the powder is worth $21, slimshine is $14.50, and the brush is $30! So, I couldn't pass it up! The liners are okay, I mean for the price, it's not to shabby! I had MAC withdrawal, I haven't purchased MAC since the beginning of November! I was overdue! I started twitching.. no not really just kidding!

Next, you all know
I've been on the prowl for a tinted moisturizer. So I was able to drag the husby to MacArthur mall. I met the MUA for Laura Mercier and she was super nice! She color matched me, and complimented my eye makeup! I love that! PUAHHA, anyways, my color is Fawn. My first impression of this stuff is that I'm simply amazed! I applied this with my 109 and I achieved that dewy, glowy look with an even complexion. Let see how it works for the rest of the week, I've only used it twice and my face is loving it! I also snagged some goodies at Bath and Body Works. I'm not too fond on the lotion because I have such sensitive skin. But I wanted to get that C.O. Bigelow Body Buffer! I looove the lip exfoliator by C.O. Bigelow so I can only imagine how it'll feel all over the body! I'm going to try to convince the husby to use it, PUAHAHHAH! Oh yeah, I also snagged peppermint and spearmint oil! One is Stress Relief and the other is Headache Relief. I've been getting a lot of headaches, and taking meds all the time isn't good for the bod, so I decided to get my own peppermint oil to rub on my temples. My mom got me into this. She rubbed peppermint oil on my temples when I used to get headaches. Oh and those lip products, $3 bucks each! Not bad eh? When I was taking this picture, the husby tried to put those Wallflower air fresheners from Bath and Body Works in this pic! LOL! He was like, "It's part of your haul?!" ... ummm no! HAHA, love that he makes me laugh.

Last but not least! You've heard me complain about my dry skin. I love my Clinique Moisture Surge, but I feel like I need a little more. So since I'm almost out, I decided to switch over to Hope in a Jar for Dry, Sensitive Skin. Let's hope it lives to the hype that my sis-in-law raves about me. I just tried it a few minutes ago, and my face still feels a little sticky... EEKS! Did I put too much?

Oh, and a big thank you to Steph! I got my MAC Emote Blush! It looks like it'll be perfect for contouring! And, thanks for the pigment! I'm sooo excited to try this! Thanks for your lovely card too!

UPDATE: OOps! I totally forgot to mention my new threads! Geez, can I just mention that there was a buttload of sales at the mall? I got a new cream peacoat @ Nordstroms for only 40 bucks! Jeans were buy one get one free @ Pacsun! Wooo! I got me some new skinnies! Hmm.. and some sweaters here and there.

Have a lovely week! It's a short work week for me!! WoOO!!! I can't wait till Christmas!! I really can't wait to give all these gifts away! OoooH! and Snowboarding on New Year's EVE!!! WoOOO!

Yeah, Hope in a Jar...a little goes a looooooong way! just put little tiny tiny dabs. that's what i do. my problem area is around my nose and just the little i put there covers the rest of my face except my forehead. it's really heavy. use it very very sparingly. oops, i forgot to mention that. sorry. =\

So, I was cracking up 'cause I can picture my brother trying to put the wallflowers in there. hahaha! I showed Ronnie and he laughed too. lol. you guys are crazy.

Patricia G. said...

Oh yeah, I made the same mistake and put too much when I first got it 'cause I had the travel size regular Hope In A Jar and I needed a lot of that so I applied it the same way with Sensitive Dry skin and I was tacky too.

Ohh yay for hauling! Geez you're making me super excited about getting my Charming Garnet kit!! I really want to use that Belightful! Since my skin is behaving much more now (I think it's the amazing Asian beauty products), I've been using more cheek products lately. Woohoo!

I went to B&BW last week & got that peppermint oil for my mom & Phil! I hope they like it! I might even try it since I'm sure Phil will keep it in the office.

Man, I need to talk to you about something too...
