From my local CVS where everybody knows my name (cue the Cheers theme song):
Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hr Eyeshadow in Caramel Cool -- After seeing so many swatches of the Limited Edition Dare to Go Nude collection, I knew I had to have Caramel Cool. I think copper colors are flattering for my eye color, and I don't actually have any cream shadows this color (surprising).
Maybelline Master Hi-Light Highlighting Bronzer in Light Bronze -- This is one that looks pretty in the pan, and I've read that these blush/bronzer/highlighter hybrids from Maybelline have a good formula.

From Sephora (I used a gift card that my mom gave me for my birthday back in November):
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Luminous Flush -- I didn't jump on these during the VIB preview sale because I wanted to wait until I saw some swatches. This one appealed to me the most. I still kind of want Diffused Heat just because of the way it looks in the pan.

Also from Sephora:
MAKE UP FOR EVER Lab Shine Diamond Collection Lipgloss in D8 and D14 -- This set has 2 full-size lipglosses. D8 is described as a shimmering baby pink, and D14 is a shimmering indian pink (p.s. what is indian pink?). This is a $38 value for $16, so it seemed worth it.

The free stuff from Sephora:
Balenciaga Rosabotanica EDP deluxe sample and printed scarf -- This was a 500 point perk. I had been saving my points for a really long time, waiting for something cool to come along. I decided to use them on this because the packaging of the perfume and the scarf looked really pretty. The perfume itself smells really nice. I am terrible at describing scents, so I'm not going to bother trying. The large box in the group shot above contained the Rosabotanica set.
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Eyeliner in Intense Black -- I think this was just a deluxe sample with any $25 purchase. Sephora says this is one of their best-selling liquid eyeliners, so I figured this would be a good way to try it. It has a nice calligraphy-style pen tip, which is my favorite kind of tip, so I'm looking forward to using it.

What have you been hauling lately?
P.S. I have a feeling I need to update my pop culture references.
