33 days

I had 3 of the most stressful/tiring days at work so far....

so I caved last Sunday :P

BUT, hey I made it to 33 days without buying any new makeup lol.

My haul from Sunday - I went to the MAC Pro Store and got:

1. Pink Pearl pigment (my first full size pigment!)
2. Lip Erase in Dim (I love it :) works way better than concealer for me).
3. samples of Naval Blue pigment and Silver pigment


Also, my skin keeps acting up (due to stress probably) and Everyday Minerals Intensive formula just doesn't provide enough coverage in those situations. So, I decided to order some samples from Buff'd Cosmetics, since I've heard they have heavier coverage. Samples were $1.50 each, including shipping.

And finally, I decided to venture onto Facial Shop. I'd been avoiding that website during my ban because I knew I would find something I wanted there. Of course, I found several things I wanted:

Shiseido Hydro Powder in Glistening Sand, and Bare Pink (they were listed for $18.99!)
Laneige Snow Radiant Blusher in 002 (a baked blush similar to MSFs)
Christian Dior Diorissime Ready-to-Wear palette from Fall 2007

On a non-makeup note, I wanted to order some circle lenses last week, but none of the styles I wanted were in stock anymore :( I'll have to wait until they email me when their new stock arrives.

And I already have a list of stuff I need to shop for this weekend - Naughty Nauticals @ MAC; a pink lipstick because NicNic and Psychoexgirlfriend just make it look so good; and a present for the bf's bday in a few weeks. I know what to get him, but I don't know how to choose it :S Guys are so hard to shop for!

That's why I'm afraid of going on a total shopping ban. I'm afraid of the damage I'll do after I get off of the ban. LOL. :P That Pink Pearl pigment is SO pretty. :) And I'm seriously thinking about getting one pair of circle lenses too. :P But I'm still afraid it'll look all whacked out on me. LOL. :)

You lasted longer than me! I caved in after a week ROFL!!!!

Good job lasting that long with your no-buy! Do you know how lip erase compare to satin lipsticks? I use myth and it works, sometimes if the color i put on top of it is too light, then it washes me out.

woah -- you DID do a lot of shopping. me, too! *guilty grin*

Dude you lasted longer than I ever could so I think you did AMAZING.

And you're right.. guys are a nightmare to shop for. I have a major anniversary next month (on top of mothers day) so I'm pretty screwed.

Yay! You got Pink Pearl pigment! Isn't it sooo pretty?? NicNic's FOTD makes me want a pink lipstick too... beauty blogger girls are dangerous! Imagine if we got commission from cosmetic stores for promoting their products? We'd be rich! And happy bday to your bf!! Hrm.. I wonder what you're gonna get him. I always get mine clothes. He's easy to please.

33 days is still pretty good, I don't think I could pull that off! lol.

I hate shopping for guys too, but you know what, if you get him something electronics related, he's bound to love it. Whenever I get frustrated finding a present for my bf, I always resort to electronic gadgets lol it works every time!

heheh 33 days is such a long time and you got a nice haul for a reward, im also deciding whether to get the Laneige snow radiat blusher as The muse gave great review on that, cannot wait to see your other hauls hehh :)

wow that lip erase stuff looks cool, my interest is piqued. take a picture of it on your lips and with lipcolor over it?

I love Naval Blue, it's a gorgeous pigment! :)

Great haul from the Pro store. I live so far away it's almost a pain to go. :\

Tell me how that Buff'd foundation works out! My EM foundation is starting to not cut it. :(

actually, the pedegg is really gentle. no risk of hurting yourself with it at all. on the infomercial (lol yes its an 'as seen on tv' product) it shows that you can even scrape it against a balloon and the balloon will stay intact
