Since I’m planning on hauling off and on for this week, I decided to break up my hauls into two posts, instead of making one mega post. I’ve been taking advantage of coupons and sales this week, which makes this a very frugal shopping week. All of these items came Ebay, Swapping, Back 2 Mac, Target and so forth.
Here is my haul for this week:
Target – They put their L’Oreal HIP eyeshadow duos on sale for $3.99 and I had a bunch of $3 off coupons, so I indulged in quite a few duos:
I also picked a couple of new brushes from Sonia Kushak that I LOVE!
Pointed Blending Brush (MAC 226 dupe)
Large Crease Brush
After Target I hit up the MAC Store to turn in some empties and pick up a new lipglass. I got two mineralized eyeshadows for my B2M empties and one lipglass:
Earthy / Riches
Illusionary / Burning Ambition
Viva Glam VI Lipglass.
Pink Clash – I got this in a swap. I adore this color.
Walgreens – I had heard some good things about the Jordana Pretty Shine lipglosses, so I grabbed a couple when I ran in there a couple of days ago:
CVS – I stopped in here because I had some Physician’s Formula coupons that were about to expire along with a couple of other coupons that were expiring as well. So here is what I picked up:
Physician’s Formula Organic Wear Eyeshadow Duo in Blue Eyes Organic
Physician’s Formula Palette Powder Corrector in Green
N.Y.C. Metro Quartet in South Street Seaport
Ebay – I love and hate this site. I love the awesome deals, but I hate them as well. LOL. Well, ever since the Stila Mandarin Collection came out a couple of years ago, I had been majoring lemming the Cool Eyeshadow trio, but I wasn’t to purchase it before it went bye bye. Well I found it on ebay for $16 with free shipping. So now that little beauty is now in my collection.
Lastly I ordered some of Coastal Scents E-Z Pressing Medium from Beauty of the Earth. I refuse to purchase anything from Coastal Scents again, but I wanted that product, so I got it from Beauty of the Earth instead. I can’t wait to try it!
I have been so freaking busy this past week. I’ve been trying to get all my Christmas presents together. I’ve been making homemade body scrubs for everyone, so that has been a pain to put together. But it’s been cheap – which leaves me plenty (hah) of money left over for my hauls. So I thought I would just make a massive list of everything I have picked up!
Flirt Cosmetics 40 count eyeshadow palette. This is no longer available online, and it’s selling out of the stores. I was lucky to get mine – which was the last one there. Anyway these eyeshadows are the same size as MAC’s so they fit into the their palettes. I have to say that there are some duds in this set, but there are more good eyeshadows than bad, so it’s still worth the $23 I paid for it.
CVS: Last week, CVS had a BOGO Free sale on their L’Oreal Lippies, so I grabbed some of the Glam Shine liglosses, because I had be curious about them. NYC Color was also marked down 50% so, I grabbed a bunch of the Ultra Longwear lipsticks, I like them and they were $1 a piece.
L’Oreal Glam Shine lipglosses in Diva, Prima Donna (MAC Pink Clash Dupe!), Drama Queen and Seductress.
NYC Color Ultra Last LipColor: Air Kiss, Rose Petal, Red Flame, English Rose, Mousse, and Rose Gold
Beall’s Outlet: This place always has a few good finds in their makeup area, and this week was no different.
Revlon Limited Edition Bare – It – All Lustrous Powder: Buff Love, Goldi-Locks, Peachy Tease, and Pink – A – Boo.
L’Oreal Colour Juice lipstick in Cheeky Peach
Walgreens: There wasn’t too much on sale this week, but I did pick up a new Rimmel lippie that was 40% off and I has a $1 off coupon, so I picked up one to test. I love long wearing lipsticks and glosses, so I’m looking forward to trying this one out.
I think I spent around $50 or so for my entire haul. Which isn’t bad AT ALL. I will probably get around to writing reviews for the Glam shines and Rimmel lippies because they are still available on the market. The Revlon and the Flirt goodies won’t be getting a review because of their hard to find status now.
Rimmel Lasting Finish Kiss & Stay Lipgloss: Lustrous Nude
Budget Beauty Brand New York Color has released it’s long awaited fall collection, Metro Metals. I say that collection was long awaited because there has been quite a buzz about the nailpolish and the possible dupes of MAC’s legendary MSFs. I have actually already hauled most of this collection a few weeks ago, but I was waiting for it to be released onto the New York Color website, before I really got into it. And I check out the site today and low and behold, Metro Metals is up!
So enjoy the pictures and descriptions from the site:

One of my favorite drugstore lines, N.Y.C. New York Color has released a new collection just for the summer. With the focus on bronzing, N.Y.C. brings us several options to go tan without going broke.

The Big Apple Collection is available at select retailers.
Value priced from $3.99 to $5.99.
Okay, Wet N Wild just released their new collection of eyeshadow quads and eyeliners to the stores and I am across them this evening at a local Walgreens. However when I came home to get more information about these new goodies, and there wasn’t any mention of the new eyeshadows on the site. In fact, the Wet N Wild site is now just promoting their mineral foundation that came out last summer! WTF?!?
Wet N Wild isn’t the only company that has this problem. Prestige Cosmetics also does not update their website either. Prestige is still promoting their Lash Matrix mascara as their newest product. That particular product came out OVER A YEAR AGO! How wrong is that? Since then, Prestige has released many different items and collections ranging from new lipglosses to new eyeshadow collections and more mascaras. But you wouldn’t know that if you browsed their website.
Milani Cosmetics is also guilty of not updating their website. Their “What’s New” page is showing all the new products that are being released in February and March… 2007. The Runway Eyeshadow palettes STILL haven’t been put onto the website. And as every beauty buff knows, those came out over a year ago.
So can anyone explain to me why these companies, have not put in the time to update their sites? They pay for these sites, and the purpose of said sites is to promote their new products, and yet nothing. Fortunately not all brands take this attitude when it comes to the internet. NYC Color is actually quite good at keeping their site updated with their newest collections, which makes it easier to decide on what you want to look at before you head out to the store.
Does this practice of not updating websites annoy the piss out of anyone else? Hit me up in the Comments with your opinion.
