Here's what I bought:
Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow -got Lavende and Silvery

Sourcil Due Professionnel- Professional Brow Duo in Blonde

A shadow/liner brush

Aqualumiere sheer colour lipshine in Santa Barbara

The sales lady was so nice as to not tell me the total and to hide my receipt nicely wrapped under the tissue paper, bless her heart, lol. I would've bought more but I had to cut myself off. Their stuff is expensive but I love it!

What have you bought lately?
I am in LOVE with Chanel's loose powder.

My my my.

And I love how the Chanel ladies neatly tuck the receipt in the tissue paper in the Chanel envelope!

I remember when I received my first handwritten thank you note from my Chanel lady... what a sweet gesture!

It blends really easy and looks very natural. I also got their shimmer stuff...its very very subtle but still sparkly. I miss Boots...you could get a sandwhich, drink and side for 3 pound or less.

^ Ah yes, the meal deal. Tis a good deal, if only the sandwichs weren't completely picked over by the time I meandered from my office onto Market Street.

I agree though, as a rule when buying Boots cosmetics, I prefer No. 17 to No. 7.

I couldn't live without:

Clinique Instant Perfector
Mary Kay Waterproof Mascara (I've been blessed with long lashes, so I can go basic for mascara )
Clinique Color Surge Butter Shine Lipstick in Cranberry Cream

I just bought this and so far i'm unimpressed....I feel like even with the one dip rule it has the potential for clumping. I'm "eh" about this right now.

Mascara

Speaking of mascara, I recently bought some Dior Show mascara and it is amazing! I swear I look like I have instant false eyelashes.

Here's a link to Dior Show.

http://www.sephora.com/browse/produc...categoryId=B70

Google it and read some of the reviews on places like Amazon. It was after seeing those that I took a chance and bought it. I am very happy even spending $23!

I've heard good things about it too. I've also heard that the YSL mascara ( I can't remember the name) is awesome too. I think the Fatale is definitely going back.

What's a good liquid eyeliner? I've only been using it for a year (I was all about pencil before), and I want to branch out from Bourgois.

I've recently fallen in love with Revlon's cream blush in Rosy Glow. I'm always horrible about picking out blush colors, but this is the perfect shade and looks great.

I also am really liking Maybelline's Sky High Curves mascara, even though it does kinda clump a lot.

Went to Sephora and checked it out tonight. It's a darker shade but looks like it would be very forgiving. I didn't get a sample, but probably should have so I could have played with it at home.

DiorShow Mascara

I really want to try it, but I have poker straight lashes. Will this mascara hold my curl when I use the eyelash curlers?

I was a liquid eyeliner devotee forever until I started using Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel eyeliner last year. It applies with a brush, doesn't glop when you're putting it on, (no more smudges when the brush touches your lower lashes) and wears just as well if not better. Love the stuff!
