My First Makeup Purchase for 2013:
Apres Chic collection
All Woman Quad
So far ? None ! I purchased a Dior balm yesterday ( Sephora gives a 30 € coupon for all customers with a Gold card as a birthday gift), maybe I will purchase Haute Altitude and Hot Chocolate and Après Chic lipsticks on thursday but I am not sure yet. I said I would skip them but reviews are so good, well.
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013 TO YOU LADIES !
I held off buying from Sephora until the new year, as I already accrued VIB points in 2012 and I want to requalify for their VIB program. My husband wanted to purchase cologne for his brother as well as the nephews, so I told him to hold it off until the new year!
I will tell you what I am planning to get next: one of Le Metier De Beaute's kaleidoscopes, as soon the Saks counter calls me about their events.
Nice choice ! I haven't bought anything yet but maybe thursday ( Après Chic ) I don't know yet. Here the spring collections are to be launched in february so I have time to save up money for huge spring hauls ! It's 22.30 PM here and no beauty purchase yet !
Nothing yet. I've got a couple of the Magically Cool Liquid Powders in my cart now though, plus a BU Venetian Tarnish Metal-X (it's one of the few eye products I own with a giant dip in it ). I've got Deep Dark Brunette brow f/l and pencil waiting for me for when the collection's released at my store.
Coming up soon, I'll need a new jar of cream cleanser. I'm going back to Clarins after spending this past year with Shiseido.
Also, I'm going to drop some cash replenishing my beloved Santa Maria de Novella colognes - I'm almost out of the ones I swear by, Patchouli and Violetta. Also just about out of Gardenia, but that one is going to get replaced with something new, maybe Honeysuckle. If you've never heard of these, they're amazing fragrances and old fashioned beauty products made for centuries by the Dominican order in Florence. Going into their showroom is like entering the church of perfume - an amazing place to see if you're in Italy. I don't think the monks run it anymore, but all the recipes are still the same - they don't cut corners trying to "modernize", even if production has been stepped up somewhat over the 20 years I've used them. At least I don't have to order them from Italy like I first had to! http://www.santamarianovellausa.com - for purchasing in the US.
Nothing so far! But I will have my Dec 23 orders of Apres Chic and Strength items arriving Thursday and Friday!
Sunday night I ordered the Light Correct and Conceal Palette and Antique Green pigment, then last night I made an order for Samoa Silk and Brown Down eyeshadows and Pink Bronze pigment - still within 2012 :-D
Not sure when or what I will purchase after this. I wanted Enchantress l/g and Spring Bean lustreglass, but the fact that they're going away is tugging at my lemmings' strings, and I'm trying to fend it off. If I haven't gotten those items before (and had no prior interest in them), I'm probably good without them!
I'm going to try to lock down my funds and go on a no-buy until the Archie's Girls collection launches, just because there seem to be a lot of products in it and whether I buy a bunch or buy a few, I want to be able to get all that I want + any necessary backups!
Congratulations! You made your 6666th post! Here is your complimentary Slayer video! ROCK ON!!!
I had wanted Spring Bean just to amplify the green in Lollipop Loving, for a while now lol, but I've recently found my fav combo for that l/s is just to use Lasting Sensation l/l.
Enchantress seems doable for me because I can't get enough coral :)
The DCs do seem really weird! I'm glad I snagged up some Antique Green and Pink Bronze. I'm not a pigment gal, but those colors seemed too good to pass up!
