  1. I got the MUFU Matte velvet foundation, the Urban Decay de-slick mattifying compact and a sephora black liquid eyeliner! WOO HOO can’t wait to try everything out tomorrow morning!

    Phyllis – Do you think the 1″ straightener is good for curling hair? I’ve been trying to use mine to curl it and it works terrible. I’m wondering if the smaller one would work better.

    • Nice haul!

      A smaller straightener is definitely better for curling hair. I used to use my CHI 2″Turbo Flat Iron 2 and it sucked. I’ll try with the ghd this weekend and post an update.

  2. that’s such a great haul! would you say 127 is the color that comes after 120 for the mufe!?

    i picked myself up the nars holiday 2010 collection! i’m so excited for it to get here! :)

    btw phyllis, is there any difference in quality between the ghd color indulgence stylers vs the original ones? there shouldn’t be right? let us know how you like yours! :)

    • According to Sephora, 127 is the next yellow-based color after 120. 123 is for Olive skin and 125 is more neutral.

      I don’t think there’s a difference between the original ghd and the color indulgence stylers but I’ll keep you posted =)

  3. First time posting a comment here. ;)

    I got a huuuuge haul of basics.. pretty unexciting, almost all stuff I’ve already had before and needed refills of.

    In the end I gave in and bought an Urban Decay liquid liner in an electric blue color, and the Dior Designer Quint in Green Designer, just because I didn’t want to walk away without anything fun to get excited about when I open that box!

  4. 127 is two shades darker ( than one 120) If you have pink undertones i would go with 125, if you have yellowish undertones go with 123.

    Hope that helps !

  5. hmm… I ordered on the very first day of the sale early in the morning and mine is to come on 28th!
    Perhaps it’s because you live in Chicago whereas I am in LA…?
    BTW, Phyllis, does that straightener really work well? I am debating between keratin straightening vs. using a daily straightener….

    I got:
    1. Nars Douceur blush- totally wasn’t interested and was planning on getting Madly- tried and chose this!
    2. Nars kit- I have Essential eye palette but liked the small bronzer and multiple!
    3. Nars eye makeup remover- I am totally in love with this one
    4. theBalm Balmbini – small kit, cheap, hey, why don’t I try theBalm product for the first time?
    5. Dior airbrush- for my sister… do they really last as much as your liquid foundation?
    6. Laura mercier concealer- I heard they were really good…
    7. Bobbi brown lotion with spf ?? I tried their vitamin cream once and thought it was ok…

    • Wow that’s a lot of products! You will definitely love the NARS blush and LM concealer (it’s Pat McGrath’s favorite) Have fun with everything =)

  6. Yay! I got my order Monday. I got the Urban Decay BOS III, Nars Orgasm, Korres 10 piece eyeliner set, and Rosebud Salve.

  7. I’m giddy about my order (it shipped really quickly, standard shipping) but feel a little guilty about it haha…

    NARS single eyeshadow in fez
    Sephora brand platinum small eyeshadow brush
    NARS velvet matte lip pencil in dolce vita
    2 Clear Sephora makeup bags
