Hauled It: Bath and Body Works Lambie Slippers 2009

Bath and Body Works Lambie Slippers 2009 13

The Muse does so wish she can say that Bath and Body Works Lambie Slippers are going to sell out like no tomorrow. But ado…with the economy as is I do so notice more and more things are shelf sitters lately. Where as a two years ago you’d have to struggle to locate a pair of Lambies, you can now get tons of ‘em. I do suggest snagging them early though just in case my predictions of a rather dull Holiday shopping season are wrong.

Jump ahead to hear my thoughts on the new Lambie Slippers.

Virtual Money for Nothing: Illamasqua Hauling

Illamasqua+Cosmetics

Say the Muse gives you $150 virtual dollars to spend on Illamasqua today. What would you haul?

Jump ahead to hear what I’d blow my virtual moola on!

My hauling would start with concealer. Indeed, some people love eye shadow, some love foundation, some are obsessed with skincare…as for me I’m addicted to finding the perfect concealer.

Count me in for a pot of Illamasqua Concealer although I’m unsure which shade I’d want…this needs a swatch!

Illamasqua+002

$22 bucks down $128 to go!

The Illamasqua Color Blushes I’ve seen so far look lush. Sign me up for Hussy, Tweak, and Beg…but that’s not my final list so don’t quote me there!

Illamasqua+004

Uh oh $59 left…not much left now…!

Some people would say the heart of a brand would be it’s foundation so of course, by all means, sign me up for Illamasqua Rich Liquid Foundation.

Illamasqua+001

And finally I have just enough change left over to buy myself a Vanilla Frappachino and some Illamasqua Pure Pigment in Incite please.

Illamasqua+003

How about you?

What are you hauling with your virtual cash?

Or should I say what have you hauled from the brand already?

Hauled It: The Body Shop Cosmetics

hauled

Several days ago I was telling you The Body Shop had a super sale going on with it’s cosmetics. Online all Body Shop Cosmetics were 3 for $10, pretty sweet deal. I passed The Body Shop last week and ran across their sale display and check it, the deal is sweeter in store. The sale is 5 for $10 bucks in store, likey! They had a whole lot of everything in the store I went to which was surprising as at these prices you’d think it would either be all destroyed or long gone. Guess the economy even stops us from great sales at this point, how sad.

Although much of what was offered I either wasn’t into or had already I still dug around in the bins and came up with a few bits and bobs I hauled home with me!


Jump ahead for my Body Shop haul!

I honestly only seen one item I truly wanted in the sale bins which was The Body Shop RoseFlower Blush in 02. I already have 01 and it’s a tad bit sheer but this is a bubbly rose shade that I absolutely fell for at my first glance when it popped onto the scene. I’m happy to have nabbed it on sale. The original price was $20 and they had it marked down for $10 bucks or pick 5 items for $10. I only wanted the blush but since it was pick 5 items for $10 bucks I thought of it as just getting the other four items for free.


I ended up getting the following bits and bobs.

Body Shop Lipstick in some unknown color, looks like maybe it was released last Summer? Not sure. It’s a metallic burnt orange shade, quite pretty really for Summer.


I snatched up one of the Spring shades from the Moroccan Rose Collection which I actually have but decided to double up on as these lippies were really special.


The Body Shop Liquid Lip Color in 03? Not much help shade wise but it’s a rather pretty maroon that will look lovely in the Fall or Winter.


And The Body Shop Lip Click Gloss in a very, very pretty metallic red shade which dupes MAC Royal Romp rather nicely.


I was pretty impressed with the offerings and the great price tag. The Body Shop’s semi-annual sale was particularly great this year for hauling bath and body products or cosmetic items. Def head in store for a peek at what’s left in your shop as it’s ending soon.

Anyone haul from The Body Shop?

What steals and deals did you end up with?

Stash Spoglight: Napoleon Perdis Eye Patrol Eye Shadow

stash+spotlight

It’s been a while since I stash spotlighted hasn’t it? I thought I’d do a rather quickie post of a haul I did months ago when Sephora was killing Napoleon Perdis from it’s stores.

Napoleon+Perdis+Eye+Patrol+002

Check it below!

I’m not Napoleon Perdis’s biggest supporter and yes I’ve been known to make fun of his tan a time or two. But I admit he had a few odd pieces in his collection that were decent enough one of which were the Eye Patrol Eye Shadows. I think they ran about $22 when they were fully priced at Sephora but I got them at the grand total of $6 bucks each when NP was axed. Btw take a peep at this post when I was predicting NP’s demise from Sephora, I’m such a blooming fortune teller.

These are really quite pretty so we must give Napoleon a few props for creating such a nice little shadow. They have a hint of shimmer, a soft silky texture, and very nice color pay off. Likey! Plus hauling all of ‘em for $6 bucks each didn’t hurt either.
