Anyway, here's the photos of what I got in November. I always tell myself that I'm on a shopping ban but I can never resist Sephora... I actually have a shopping cart full of stuff right now but I've had to buy a few birthday presents recently and.... my wallet is going to go find itself a new owner if I don't stop shopping!
There aren't too many photo's as I wasn't sure if I was going to keep it all so I didn't want to open all the packaging. I'll post links to the products though. I'm also starting to sell some of my stuff. Check out my blog sale :)
First up is the box containing my Macy's haul. I picked up a few MAC things and something from Philosophy.

2. MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder (pressed) $24 - I've actually decided to keep this. It's basically what the name says it is... a pressed finishing powder. I haven't started using this yet. The box it came in was so pretty! It was a sparkly purple box :)
3. MAC lipsticks. I didn't open these as I wasn't sure which one I was going to keep. I picked up Creme cup, Bare Again, Fanfare and See Sheer. I may be giving one away in a Christmas giveaway... When I have more time, I'll post up swatches of my MAC lipsticks. I've picked up 8 over the last 2 months... They're so cheap in the US compared to here in Aus! ($15 vs $36).
I try to avoid ordering from Macy's as much as possible as I think of them as a "budget department store" for some reason. I'm sure that they aren't but whenever I get packages from them, it never seems like they've packaged it very well and the products tend to look a bit beaten up.
But I was too tempted by their gift with purchase which was a huge bag of samples!

There were more than 25 perfume, skincare and makeup samples!
1. Beautyblender Duo Set $39.95: I picked up a 2 pack of the beautyblenders. They're basically pink egg shaped makeup applicators. I thought that they were a bit of a gimmick at first but I'd been watching youtube tutorials and lots of people seemed to love their beautyblenders. It came with a cleanser for them as well.
2. Urban Decay Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Colour pencil in lovechild $19: I bought this to push me over the $50 limit for free shipping. The pencil is super creamy and pigmented and a dream to apply. I'd love this more if my lips weren't so pigmented as it doesn't come up on my lips as pale pink. I've been dying to get the perfect baby pink lipstick/pencil.
And that's it! I have a David Jones haul to post as well but I probably won't do that until Christmas is over as it features some stuff that I got for Kris Kringles/Secret Santa's.
What do you want for Christmas this year? I'm dying to get an acrylic makeup box. I wish the people at the makeupboxshop.com could hear me! :P
