More damage than the worst storm

So I've been so bad...ever since I found out the code for the Sephora sale, I've made a total of 3 transactions. I've spent well over $400! Holy cow! But it's the Asian in me....trying to make the best out of a good "sale", lol. I'm stocking up and hoarding like it's Y2K all over again!

This is the third order I've placed...here's my goodies:

Illamasqua Rich Liquid Foundation - RF 140 (I've heard so many great things about this product. You can check out the review on: http://rfcmakeup.blogspot.com/2009/10/more-on-illamasqua-rich-liquid.html )

Illamasqua Satin Primer SPF 20 - 1 oz
Lancome CILS BOOSTER XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base - Mascara Base
(I've found this to be one of the best mascara primers yet! It's even better than the Shiseido one, which I discovered was quite drying on my lashes...and you girlies know I'm allllll about THE LASHES!!!)

Lancome HYPNÔSE - Custom Volume Mascara - Black

Urban Decay Brow Box - Honey Pot (I have not yet tried this....but I read mostly great reviews on www.makeupalley.com , so I thought it wouldn't hurt to give this a try!)

Sephora Brand Professionnel Platinum Air Brush #55 - Professionnel Platinum Air Brush (This received EXCELLENT reviews, I'm so excited to try this bad baby out!!!!)

Benefit Cosmetics Get Even - 01 (light)

Sephora Brand Mineral Double Compact Foundation SPF 10 - D10




So yeah, all in all...I'm quite excited to receive this shipment! The amazing thing is since I live out on the East Coast, shipping is lightning-fast for me! I usually get the shipment in no longer than 2 days! =D

Eeeee, I feel like a little kid waiting for Christmas to come again. So remember, ladies, you have until Nov. 2nd to take full advantage of your 20% off entire purchase.

*************Just use the code: FF2009


What have you guys ordered? Any recommendations? I need all y'all's HG products, things you absolutely, positively CANNOT live without!! Help me out *grin* :)

  11. lol. Yeah. I'm Vietnamese and Chinese. Not many people can tell from first judgement. Probably only 3/10 people can tell I'm Asian and guess either or of my Asian pride. hahaha!

    Actually, we were very protective to for each other when we were younger because we had to grow up depending on just each other but then he got meaner and bullied me later on in life. I don't think it didn't cope down until 2-3 years ago. LOL. I guess it's just a phase. Not many siblings actually get along until later on in life or.... never. LOL.

    Even though both of you are grumpy to each other, I'm sure you both love each other and not because you think you have to. LOL.

    Don't you just love being chi hai? Sucks when everything goes to the younger one and we have to take a lot more respondsibility! lol. Did your parents had a thing about you being an Asian girl so you can't do this or that and you have to act a certain way or be a certain way? HAHA.

  12. Hey there! Thank you so much for visiting my blog and entering the contest!! :) LOVE your blog as well! I'm not very good at makeup/beauty so this will be a great help for me! I wish I had known about the Sephora code earlier...missed it by just a day! Please tell us how the air brush works out!! I'm curious to know if it's really worth it!

  13. hey dont worry about it. i wrote to them and they never replied, but i still got my package. it's a matter of waiting really. i live in florida and it takes almost exactly 2 weeks from when my order is processed and shipped out. but it might be different if you are in other places, it's better than paying for the $20 shipping lol. for me it is. dont worry too much again, i'm sure you'll get them in time. or else i would not order from them ever again! i'm going to make my another order soon.

  16. Nice products! you should definitely do a haul or review on them when they arrived. (:

  17. Hi! Hmmm I would have to say my favorite mascara ever so far is still my Shiseido base used with the Shiseido Advanced Volume mascara. One without the other is not the same lol...that being said, it's really hard to remove and is really expensive together. I'm looking out for good nonwaterproof mascaras now because I'm trying to give my lashes a rest...any suggestions? :D

  18. Nice Haul!!! I've also been eyeing the Sephora No.55 brush everyone is raving about! Let us know how you like all the stuff u got ^.^

    RYC: I actually saw this method long ago from EnkoreMakeup. The alcohol just bonds the loose, cracked makeup after it dries out/evaporates.

    Hope I answered your Q :)

  19. LOL Fricken' RFC is my enabler. She totally made me order that foundation just 20 mins ago. I ordered the 135 and I hope it isn't too light... Bing.com is offering a 20% cashback on Sephora orders so I couldn't resist. Thanks for wishing me luck on the finals!!! I could seriously use all the luck I could get @_@; I can't wait to see your review on it.
