Products I Loved: I'm liking my Laura Mercier Artist Palette and RBR eyeshadows, and I'm sad to reach the end of my sample of Pai Rosehip Oil. That is definitely on my to purchase list! 

Beauty Purchases: Thanks to gift cards, I ordered Dior Addict Lip Gloss in Exquise from the Spring 2014 colleciton, Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask, and Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation. Can't wait to try the new KGD formula and the new releases! 

Added to the Wishlist: Dior Fusion Mono Matte eyeshadows from the Spring 2014 collection, Guerlain Spring 2014 blush, Clinique's neutral eyeshadow palette, Chanel Le Blanc... and a pile of new releases on Sephora's site including Boscia Tsubaki Hydration Mask, and a set of Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Waters.

What I Wore, #23

This week seemed to have gone by so fast! Or was it just me? In any event, I didn't wear much aside from a bit of foundation and Laura Mercier Caviar sticks. 

How about you? What makeup did you wear this week?

Products I Loved: It has only been two days but I seriously love the Diptyque Pine Bark candle. Seriously love the scent, and it is perfect for the holiday season. 

Beauty Purchases: Got some candles - possible Diptyque Pine Bark dupes, and spent the remainder of my Sephora store credit on the Laura Mercier Artist Palette. I didn't think I wanted this palette but I actually quite liked a few of the shades, and perhaps I had a moment of panic when I realized that it isn't even listed on the Sephora website anymore. LOL. I did a little shopping on Beautyhabit with a 20% off code, and managed to snag the aforementioned Diptyque Pine Bark and Sunday Riley Breathable Tinted Primer for 30% off. :) Time to stop shopping for the rest of the year/my life? Lol.

Added to the Wishlist: Danielle over at Bloomin' Beauty loves the Bare Minerals Round the Clock eyeliners, and from one swatch I can see why. Creamy, black, and relatively inexpensive, this one is at the top of my list. Hopefully my eyes can handle it! I also am wanting Hourglass Lipstick in Nocturnal and Dior Addict Lipstick in Black Tie. Groan! 

What did you love or lust after this week? I'd love to know what was on your radar! :)

I wasn't as successful this week at wearing makeup as last week. Sad. Guess I was feeling more tired and headache-y again, so I hope I'm not getting sick!

Here's a peek at what I did manage to wear!

Rouge Bunny Rouge Eclipse Eagle Eyeshadow, Rouge Bunny Rouge Milk Aquarelle Foundation Sample, Givenchy Healthy Glow Powder in Ambre Croisiere, Clinique Superfine Liner for Brows in 02 Soft Brown, Armani Waterproof Smooth Silk Liner in 02 Brown

Rouge Bunny Rouge Eclipse Eagle Eyeshadow, Rouge Bunny Rouge Milk Aquarelle Foundation Sample, Givenchy Healthy Glow Powder in Ambre Croisiere, Clinique Superfine Liner for Brows in 02 Soft Brown, Armani Waterproof Smooth Silk Liner in 02 Brown

Posts this Week: My Lush Favorites & Giveaway // Hydrate with Dr. Ci:Labo // Cold Weather Lip Balm: Osmia Organics Luster // October Beauty Purchases

Products I Loved: My Rouge Bunny Rouge arrived, and I'm sure it will be love. But it is too early yet to rave! 

Product Disappointments: The lovely Gummy sent me her mini Diptyque Mimosa candle that she recently purchased, and I hate to say that it isn't all that great. There isn't much scent, which is very unlike the other Diptyque I've tried, and what scent I can discern (some unknown floral note?) isn't all that great and doesn't smell like mimosas either? This one has left me confused! Edit: Apparently mimosas are a flower and they are just not my kind of scent!

Beauty Purchases: With the Sephora VIB sale winding down, I bit the bullet and ordered a few things I had been considering: Edward Bess Bronzer in Daydream, Bobbi Brown Long Wear Eyeshadow Stick in Bark, and the perfume gift sets from L'artisan Parfumeur and Atelier Cologne. I hope I like them all, though I'm quite picky about perfumes so who knows how I'll fare with those!

Added to the Wishlist: Pretty much the entire contents of the Beautyhabit and Space NK holiday catalogs. Some of the highlights - more Rouge Bunny Rouge, The Laundress Wool & Cashmere Spray, Diptyque's holiday collection. Someone please send help! Lol!

What did you love, hate, or pine after this week? Did you buy anything new and fun? I'd love to know what has been on your radar!

I've failed to take photos of what I wore this week, but I am happy to say that I wore makeup (even just a little!) nearly every day this week. Woohoo!  

Posts This Week:  All You Need is Cleansing Water // Koh Gen Do Moisture Concealer vs Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage // Obsession: Beautannia Columbia Road Candle // Go Natural with Sarabecca Day & Night Perfumes // October Empties

 Products I Loved: Laura Mercier's Caviar Sticks are topping my list. Super convenient, perfect for everyday, and such a great range of colors. Look out for a post soon, on my whole collection of them! 

Product Disappointments: Nothing this week, though I think something in my skincare routine is maybe making my eye makeup a bit... melty? Or maybe I should just use primer haha!

Beauty Purchases: My fiance offered a budget for shopping, so I ordered some Neom and Rouge Bunny Rouge. Both brands are new to me, so I am so excited to try them. I also cashed in some of the Sephora store credits I've been saving, and have been picking up lots of goodies at the Sephora VIB sale.  

Added to the Wishlist: I spotted a set of L'artisan Parfumeur Travel Sprays and I am SO tempted to order it before the sale ends. Seems like a stellar deal, and I've been so curious about the brand. I need to order this for science, right? LOL!
