Hi Guys & Dolls!

Last week I took a little holiday, did a little shopping and I wanted to share my haul with you! On Friday my friend Jamie and I were fortunate to be invited to the Makeup Geek open house where we got to swatch all the products and check out the new Pigments which are AMAZING! I wanted to go nuts and buy them all but I was “good” and just got 5 and a Gel Liner! Shout-out to Elle and Darcy!

On Saturday we went wine tasting & shopping in beautiful Napa California, and I have to say how lovely it was. I really need to start taking advantage of living in Northern California! You know how when you see something all the time you stop really seeing it? I want to try stopping to smell the roses so to speak. Wine tasting at Mumm Napa was delightful and I even ran into a subscriber!

But back on track, we went to the Outlet Mall in Napa and hit up the Cosmetic Company store, otherwise known as a CCO. It’s an outlet store of Estee Lauder Brands like MAC, Clinque, Bobbi Brown, Tom Ford, etc. I picked out a few staple MAC items though I was tempted by all the pretties there, like the Tom Ford Perfume that was “on sale” for $196!!! HOLY NO-WAY BATMAN!  We also stopped into a beauty supply where we tracked down the OPI Bond Girls Collection and some of the Color Club Hologrpahic polishes. On Sunday I came home to packages from OCC & Milani, so I decided to include them in this Swatch & Tell session. I hope you find my swatches & insight into the products helpful!

    Was this like a body shop party or like shopping in a warehouse full of make up. I also think that your make up is beautiful.:)

    Outlet malls are so, so dangerous. I could easily go broke on makeup alone. Of course, I would have probably bought that Tom Ford perfume without a second thought. It’s on SALE! That’s like… saving money! – a plus(h) size fashion blog

    Jeez, Jinx is SUCH and amazing nail polish. I got the combo-pack of tiny bottles and put three of them on (I’m saving Pussy Galore for a special occasion 😉 ) and I keep looking at the nail that has Jinx on it. Sooo pretty! I also like Vesper, although it doesn’t have the WOW-factor of Jinx. Solitaire is not my colour, although it is pretty translucent so I think I’ll combine it with some colour underneath it.

    OH the colors are so awesome! The lip tar things look super good. I must try them!
