Happy Thanksgiving + Sephora Haul

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
It's been so long since I've last posted, I've been very occupied with schoolwork, college applications and work!
I've hauled a little bit a long time ago but I haven't posted it -- it's my Sephora F&F Haul. Haha so long ago right?
I bought the Urban Decay 24/7 Super Stash eyeliner set and a Diorshine lipstick.

So colorful!
It comes with nine pencils and all of the colors are so vibrant, creamy and pigmented.
Currently I obsessed with using the black and brown one but I also love the navy and aubergine ones too. The sizes are a bit small: each one measures about 3 inches (including the cap). But that doesn't really matter since I'm don't use makeup every single day. If I love it enough, I'll buy the full size. I was thinking of getting the MUFE 4 eyeliner set but thought there were more colors in this set... Oh well! Maybe next time :)

Lovely packaging right? It glows...

I love this color! So natural. I was compelled to buy it after seeing Fuz's swatch on Beauty Swatch. The formula is really smooth, buttery, and moist. It makes my lips watery which I love.
Do you see that strange picture in the background? That's the new Barney's catalogue.. hehehe

My Thanksgiving Dish!
My family doesn't really like turkey so we made a roast pork loin! Last year we made a roast beef dish but this year we tried something a little different... Despite the little chars on the top, doesn't it look mouthwatering?

It is seasoned with a little sea salt, rosemary and slathered in peppercorn mustard. Then you wrap it with strips of bacon and tie it up so everything stays together. Place some apples and onions on the side and roast for 90 or so minutes while checking to see if it's roasting nicely.

Hey omg!! Just yesterday I bought that same exact lipstick!! I wanted a really nice pink and that one caught my eye. I didn't have time to check swatches online as I was in the store haha so I tried it on there and loved it. It's my first time buying and trying expensive lipstick.. it's so moisturizing.. SO much better than drugstore!!!!

Nice Haul =)
I love the Dior Addict Lipstick, Love the color.. very natural! my kind of color ^__^

Catherine said...

Great F&F haul! I love the Dior Addict High Shines too - just wish more of them would actually show up on my lips!

The thanksgiving main course looks amazing! We don't go for turkey either - it's not exactly fantastic quality meat and it's hard to do right. We opted for Cornish game hens this year - more tender, tastier and much, much easier to prepare. =)

Good luck with your school and applications! I'm working on some of my own as well!

When compared to Windows 7 Home Premium Product Key, Windows 7 Professional Product Key is outstanding. When will Microsoft ever learn? Keep it simple, attractive, and easy to use. Windows 8 Professional Product Key Most computer users just want the system to work. Windows 7 does this.
Got my old desktop up and running. I got windows 7 because my desktop used to run on Vista (enough said). I did have a little difficulty Office 2013 Professional Plus Product Key but that was just due to my lack of experience with the process; once I got started, Office 2010 Professional Plus Product Key was as easy as just following prompts.
