Chanel, Hourglass, & MUFE haul!

Last night I finally got to hang out with one of my oldest friends. We decided that we would go to dinner and of course, SHOP!  We took a short trip to a mall that is about 45 minutes away.  This mall has one of my favorite things in the whole wide world - CHANEL!  Our first stop was Lord & Taylor to visit one of my favs George at the Chanel Counter.  He was helpful as always and I ended up purchasing a few goodies.  I bought my beloved bronzer that I have actually been out of all summer.  I had switched to Nars Casino and though I really like the Nars, there is just something I really LOVE about Chanel.  I bought the Soleil Tan De Chanel Moisturizing Bronzing Powder in #63 Terre Ambre.  This is the best color for me.  It is not the darkest one because I feel that makes me look a little orange.  This color has just the right amount of pigment to give me that bronze look and even out my already tanned skin.  While I was there I tried on a lipstick and gloss.  They were absolutely gorgeous but I knew I had a few on my list to get from Sephora so I passed (now that is what I call control).  So I passed on the lippies but ended up with two of the most gorgeous eyeshadows ever.  They are two singles #89 Twilight, and #90 Fauve.  I read that they were originally only released in Europe and made their way to the US.  The Twilight is a gorgeous shimmery candy like pink with micro glitter.  The Fauve is a shimmery mauve-taupe with micro glitter as well.  The photo that I am placing below really doesn't do them justice.  They were just so pretty I could not resist.  I am excited to work with these since I have never owned any of the Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow singles from Chanel before.  Here are the photos -


Our next trip was to Sephora.  I had a few items on my list thanks to one of my favorite YouTube girls TheBombShellSuite.  Her name is Vanessa and I love her style and makeup.  She had purchased a few lipsticks and a liner that I had on my list to check out.  I ended up with a MUFE lipstick in #22.  That is not the one that Vanessa had because I thought it would be a little too bright on me.  I did however, love the packaging and feel of the MUFE so I got one.  It is a beigy nude and will be on the left of the photo below.  The next lippie that was on my list is one from Hourglass.  I had never owned anything from this line but wanted to try the color she had.  I ended up getting this one because it is right up my nude alley!  It is called Fable.  This is ironic because I have been on the hunt for another Fable which is sold out everywhere.  That Fable is by Illamasqua.  The Hourglass lipstick will be on the right of the photo below.  I could not leave without a trip to the perfume section.  I ended up with a back up bottle of my beloved Fresh Cannabis Santal, and also a new purse spray of Bvlgari Jasmin Noir.  Vanessa had said that she was going to purchase Mon Jasmine Noir from Bvlgari so I had to investigate!  I liked the Mon JN but decided that the Jasmine Noir was more me.  It is a woody Oriental which is what I tend to go for.  Those deep, dark, sexy, and mysterious fragrances.  I am also a sucker for purse sprays.  It was only $25.00 which is a great way to try, before committing to a large size.  Here are the photos below -


WOW these small hauls are really starting to add up.  I would say that I am going to stop purchasing makeup and fragrance for a while but we all know that is a flat out LIE!  I mean if I were to stop what the heck would I have to blog about!

In the case of having a long overdue 5 hour shopping trip with my oldest friend and getting some fabu goodies - This case is SOLVED!
