So the hubs went out of town...

And I went all kinds of crazy. The buying kind.

Since the hubs left the country a couple of weeks ago, I've this sudden urge to satisfy all my crazyeyeshadowsespeciallybrownsandtaupe lemmings. And the gorgeous Dior Golden Savannah palette was only the beginning.

Then I brought home the Burberry Pale Barley eyeshadow.

And I custom built an Inglot 4-pan palette, with the three colours I had been lemming + an peachy-pink eyeshadow shade which I've designated to be a blush. Clockwise from the blush shade: Matte361, P433, P402, and P454. This palette is awesome for travel, by the way, and I plan to talk more about this soon.

I also got Shu Uemura's Hard Formula Brow Pencil in Seal Brown, and Sephora's Flashy Liner in Flashy Copper. I had actually wanted to get Flashy Taupe, which I couldn't find in store.

One of the three Inglot eyeshadows I got is actually a purpley-taupe (P420- in the middle of the photo below), but I've since swapped it out of my 4-pan into my 10-pan. I like the idea I can swap eyeshadows between the pans should I want to, especially for travelling. You can see more pretty pictures of P420 here.

And I also did a NARS haul. L-R: Ashes to Ashes, Kalahari duo, and Lhasa eyeshadows.

And the scary bit is, I'm not quite done. Kahani just told me yesterday that Giorgio Armani is available through Strawberrynet, and I found L'Oreal's Infallible eyeshadow in Bronzed Taupe (and several other shades) available on

Oh dear.

But technically... shopping with Paypal money isn't really SPENDING money. Right?

Whadaya think? Did I go a little way too nutters? =P

I'm going to be the evil enabler and say... GO AHEAD!!! Shopping with Paypal money isn't really spending money, but even if it is, you deserve it!! Hehehe!! ;)

Anyways, your hauls are so GORGEOUS! I wanna see more FOTDs from you ya!! Hehehe!! :D

Hey Jenn! Long time no see! =)

Yeah.. I love the haul too. Haven't done any FOTDs lately as my skin has just decided to break out all through this year. Bad enough for me to go see a derm, and even then, I'm STILL breaking out.

I actually looked up the drugstore stuff, but their shipping option (tie with MyUS) is just too pricey.

Forgot to add. I'm also lemming UD's eyeliners and their shadow pencils. *gulp*

Yes,just consider that as a reward Jenn.There's no harm in shopping as long as you know your limitation.

Oh my! Just don't make it a habit and you'll be fine. These brands are not cheap, and they are quite a lot for me. As long as you get to use these more often why not, you get your money's worth. Not that I am against it, i find it excessive. it is just me, stating opinion. But go on, keep posting! I still have fun and enjoyed reading and looking at the images with a dollar sign on my eye! lol

Don't worry, you just a little pieces, bot even over 20. These are called investments. You will need it and now you have it! You can even earn money from it, post a review blog about each makeup you bought. It's like a beauty blog. Or blog on how you do a certain look or makeup. Keep us updated!
