totally hear you! our weather is flip flopping and effing me up in the process...
The first day of winter is December 22nd, although I get that it may feel otherwise in other parts of the world. I don't want to accept it until the Winter Solstice actually arrives.

So is that the verdict for December? Winter looks or are we still taking suggestions/voting?
That is exactly how I feel - I cannot accept it until then.

Inferno is a very dark red and Rouge Noir is burgundy---if I still have the swatch pics I'll try to repost them this week. Just a tad busy w/holiday stuff! I hope everyone is doing well.

Today I'm wearing three shades from Chanel Signe Particulier quad. Left out the plum. Was thinking that there was a sort of lavender shade from TF Lips and Boys this year that I could use with it. Can't recall it

:wavey:Whatcha been up to? Any haulage recently?

Hi

I've been off theme, wearing more greens etc so not much to post.

As for hauling, I got a Marc Jacobs brush (not loving it) and am planning on TF Egon, CL Just Nothing matte lipstick and a Laura Mercier caviar stick.

Did you get anything from the Sephora $20 off $50+ ?

Ok, this is the SECOND time I've been here and thought I posted!!! Hey Shars!!

I'll post a recap.....

Soon as I remember what I wore on my eyes. LOL
I started using my Iman Foundation stick in CLay 1. LOVE this coverage. IT is pretty and very natural looking.
I've also been trying ot use the new palettes I received. I definitely love Viseart Paris Nudes more than Sultry Muse. That one didn't work well with me at all.

I've also been doing the vampy lips challenge.

Today

Eyes: a mix of viseart dark mattes and Surratt Haute chocolate. I love this shade, it's like the perfect nude with a bit of shimmer to it.
I have Haute C on the lid. A midtone brown in my crease with a lighter orange (DM=Shade 1 row 1 and the orange is Shade 4 row 1). I also put a darker brown in the crease to deepen it. (Shade 2 row 1). In the top row I used the first two and the last shade. The light brown all over, then the orange in the crease, and the darker brown to deepen the crease. s4.jpg this is haute chocolate

Cheeks: chanel Alezane. I thought I didn't like this, but I do. I've been wearing it all week.
Face: Clay 1 iman foundation.
concealer: BB dark peach serum corrector MAC nc45 studio finish conealer, which might be my new fave, this sucker has been staying. I tried the new one in the skinny stick formula. It slides right off. Even if I set with powder.
Set with LM translucent powder.
Lips: Show all. I have to be honest, I don't like this on me. It's getting old. I have the beginning stages of crayon smell, which thankfully dissipates as I wear it.

Thursday:
eyes: Haute Chocolate again on the lids. Viseart Dark Mattes again, I used the top row shades 1,2, and 3.
Face and cheeks: Same as above.
lips: Pre-Raphaelite *sniff* getting old.

Wednesday:
Cheeks: Chanel Alezane
Foundation: Laneige BB Cushion in Dark. Nice dewy like coverage. Natural
Concealer: Mac matchmaster concealer in 7, set with LM translucent powder

I used the 2nd shade in the second row on the lid, a pretty peachy copper. In the crease I used dark mattes. Shade 1,2, and 3 (corner into crease) in the crease from the Row1.

Concealer: Mac matchmaster concealer in 7, set with LM translucent powder

I think I've been channelling you. I've been wearing whatever I feel to on the day. Today I'm wearing a very fresh faced, no makeup, makeup look with a mauve-pink lip! I was RACKING my brain to find something to buy. I think I'm all hauled out lol. Plus, I have an extra Bi account so I got the $15 off $50 plus the Rouge $25 off $50. I ended up getting this Sephora blush set with one order - 4 full sized sephora blushes plus a Baby Z - palette for $50... effectively $35. I swatched them in store and was really impressed so thought I may as well pick them up. One of them is a dupe for NARS' Taj Mahal blush that I own and LOVEEEE!! My other order was boring: a Dr. Jart+ brightening infusing mask, the Sephora + Pantone marsala angled blush brush and the Boscia Konjac mini sponge trio. Those were things I wanted for a while. I'm excited to see what's going to go on sale next week and from Christmas day when they will have the extra 20% off all sale items.

LOL

The look sounds great!

Taj Mahal looks so good, glad you have it and a dupe

I realize that I end up having to buy the things I really want at full price because they go out of stock by the time sales come up :/ (ETA: Steups lol)

I ended up ordering some little things on the last day, things that were not even on the radar, just to use the discount lol

Since my No-Buy pretty much starts today (I say pretty much because I dropped and broke one of my Black Radiance Baked Blushes and I think I'm going to replace it in the next few days) I figure I should try and stay really active with the theme challenges and consistent about posting looks. This was my look for last night. It's really more of a fall look, but I guess it could be considered winter. I am trying to use all of the new eye shadows I've gotten, so my looks might veer a little off theme for the sake of breaking in new products.
