I first mentioned Christopher Drummond Beauty here.  As I mentioned, I bought this kit which retails for $95 for $49 on Open Sky* (referral link that gives me some credit to buy eye-burning hot sauce).  A total bargain considering the brush is $28 and the full size concealer is $22.50.  What did I think about this kit? Well, I can tell you….

Do you notice how I am expanding my NARS collection? I am peck collecting (not pecker collecting) or picking out products one by one like a bird pecking at food.  I don't do a big major NARS haul, maybe because if I did I would feel buyer's remorse.  Anyway, on this somewhat guilt-free single NARS purchase, I bought an eyeshadow--D. Gorgeous.

I haven't done one in awhile only because I didn't have anything to really make it on my list until this one.  I guess it isn't bad but I just don't like it when I can't really use it to the bottom of the bottle.

I honestly wasn't planning on buying another lipgloss since I had enough for my two lips already.  However, when I smelled these new ones by LORAC, I just had to buy one.

I don't pay much attention to Pop Beauty because much of the stuff I see doesn't scream me.  Okay, I basically feel too old for the line.  If this line existed during my Punk/New Wave days I would have collected the entire line.  Obviously, something niggled me back to the display while I wandered around aimlessly in Ulta.  As many times I have passed this display, the Pop Beauty Paint Duets ($24USD) finally caught my eye.

After buying my first long-wearing eyeliner pencil by NARS which I reviewed in this post, I decided to buy Rue de Rivoli.

I can't believe I skipped over this line at Sephora.  Maybe, the display just didn't catch my eye; all black with black packaging kind of camouflages itself in a store that is all color.  I am sorry to see Ultraflesh leave Sephora because these glosses are great!

I had frustrations over my black eyeliners lately because they weren't well organized. I just found it a hassle to unscrew jars of cream or gel liners, uncapping pencils, searching for powder black shadows. I wanted something that was organized and in one place. Well, well, my recent trip to Sephora had given me a sign to buy this Ultraflesh Black Magic Kit.  It had gone on sale from the original $39 to $20. Is it worth it at almost half price?

I have many eye pencils and certainly didn't need anymore but my reasoning for buying this one is "I haven't tried it!"

I like mineral makeup, I admit it. It is one of the easiest foundations to apply even a monkey can do it!  Lately, I have been wanting to expand my horizons a bit and try some other lines.  I have thought, well obsessed, over Christopher Drummond's vegan mineral makeup line.

I succumbed to the NARS Spring Collection 2012, well not all of it. I had to reason with myself because I really didn't need the entire collection. We will see how I feel in a couple of days and my reasoning could just fly out the window!

I bought this during the Black Friday sale and obviously forgot all about it until now.  In the dead of winter, the color was not that appealing to me and nor was the texture.  My skin was just dry and the weather made everything look grey.

If you aren't familiar with Ricky's NYC then you have been in a gopher hole for too long.  (Okay, I am kidding but really, get out of that gopher hole.)  This place carries hip beauty products including makeup called Mattese Elite.  I am a fan of the eyeshadows as I have mentioned here.  But did you know this line also has a great collection on nail polish?  Check out the new Mattese Elite ME Amour Collection.

Anyone's monitor becoming hot & steamy?
