SEPHORA Friends & Family Goodies!

...and then it began. One of the most awaited event for make up and beauty fans. The Sephora Friends and Family Sale.

I didn't get too much make up. Currently on the skin care side for now. My skin's a bit complicated since moving to California. I don't know why but it's sooooo frustrating. Things that kept my skin clear back then aren't working now. My tita said it was because it's not humid here so the pores are always closed trapping impurities. haaaaaay.

anyway. the UPS man dropped this box today. and YEY!


The Beauty Authority... indeed

 SAMPLES include: 
Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat
Dr. Brandt Mattifying Lotion
Jurlique balancing day cream
Beauty Insider Birthday gift. awwwhhh sweet 

it's always fun to receive birthday gifts!!
the mascara brush that came with the set

Silver Green eyeliner. A bit sheer and it doesn't glide like the Urban Decay 24/7

White eyeshadow, great for the inner tear duct and highlighting

here's the stuff:
Make Up Forever HD foundation 153
Make Up Forever HD Primer Mauve
Clarisonic Replacement Brush Head Delicate

and that's it. I was expecting the Ole Henriksen truth is in they eyes eye cream but the invoice sent said it ran out of stock, so they didn't charge credit for it. bummer.

any Christmas wishlist?

MAC Cham-Pale Teaser

I'm sure most you ladies were disappointed with the MAC holiday collection. I was too and I guess it's because MAC's pushing a lot of color stories too fast that it's becoming more and more redundant. Too much that it doesn't entice the consumer so much anymore.

anyway, here's a bit of preview from MAC's cham-pale collection. enjoy

 Highlight powders

Caviar Dreams Quad

*i don't own the pictures, pictures are from here!

I don't know. The word Pale doesn't necessarily appeal to me, I am after all NC40 and loving it. The only thing i want from this collection is the MAC Fix + Lavender.

How about you, getting anything from the Cham-Pale collection?
Where are you spending your post holiday savings/earnings?
