CCO Haul!

I today I went to the North Georgia Premium Outlets in Dawsonville, GA. I have been wanting to go ever since I found out there was a Cosmetic Company Outlet aka CCO. As many of you may know, the CCO carries MAC, Estee Lauder, Bobbie Brown, Clinique, Origins & a few other brands. I was most excited about MAC, in fact that is all I really looked at when I was there. I found lots of great items & it was really hard to pick & choose what I was going to purchase.

Lancome Photogenic Loose Powder, Lane Bryant Polish in Green, MAC Upstarts: Flawess Set (Soft & Gentle MSF, Charged Water & Cleanse-Off Oil), Buddy Up Mineralized Blush, Hot Planet Mineralized Blush, Perennial High Style Lipglass, Summer Rose Beauty Powder, 6 Sorceress Eye Shadows Palette, Soft Force Eyeshadow & Lancome Sunset Gleam.

I ended up with a nice assortment of item. I was really happy to see lots of items from past collections, especially Liberty of London!

Here are some close-up shots!

MAC Buddy Up Mineralized Blush – Too Fabulous Collection (Launched 3/10)

MAC Hot Planet Mineralized Blush – Grand Dous Collection (Launched 3/09)

I definitely plan to go back again sometime soon! I actually have 2 CCO’s within an hour of where I live, sounds like trouble to me! 🙂



Winner!! Yay!

I won the awesome giveaway that I talked about in my first post! I was so excited to have won this great little stash! Everything was package so nicely:

And here are all the goodies that I won!


Today’s Ulta Haul & More Pressed Pigments!

Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden, Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain in Dawn, Mabyelline Full & Soft Mascara, Essence Stay with Me Longlasting Lipgloss in Candy Bar, Ulta Extreme Wear Matte Finish Mousse Blush & Rimmel 60 Seconds Nail Polish in 280 Stop Traffic.

I also worked on pressing more pigments this weekend. I place an order with TKB Trading for pressing supplies & I also ordered an additional palette from a seller on ebay. I pressed my NYX pigments & some Pure Lux samples that I had on hand. Here are the results:

These are my NYX pigments. The palette is from TKB & is a smaller, cheaper version on the ever-popular Z Palette. I have Z Palette also & the quality of this palette on par with it, I only wish that TKB would release a larger version.

This palette contains all Pure Lux pigment samples. The pans are not as full as I would have liked them to be because of the sample quantities. I am not crazy about this palette & will not be ordering another on from this ebay seller. The pans were not flat bottoms so it was tricky mixing everything together. I did run in to one issue this morning, apparently I forgot to mix binder in to the chocomint (bottom right) pigment and when I touched it with my brush it turned to powder again.
