Weekend Shopping Finds

I went to the mall to do some returns while checking out the Bobbi Brown Corals Collection. I found some cute things - not all makeup related, so if you're only interested in the makeup part, I apologize!

Stop #1: J.Crew - I went in to return a scarf that I wasn't so wowed with after my initial purchase but there were so many pretty new spring clothes, I couldn't resist trying on a few things.

Rose Vines Bandaged Dress Item #25270 $138
(couldn't find this online yet though)
+ the newest catalog


Tried on a cotton ruffle dress in XS (left) which was super comfy but just looked odd with the ruffles near the bust. I don't remember the item number but I can't find it online either. It retailed for $69.50 and also came in a light grey color. Also tried the Rose Vines Bandaged Dress in Size 2 (right) which I ended up purchasing. It's difficult to see up close but the top has banded layers of fabric.


Frances Heart Cami Item #24735 which is currently on sale for $69.99. This is in Size 0. It looks way better on the model at Jcrew. A bit frilly but I still thought it was cute.


This is my favorite look from the new catalog.


Stop #2: Nordstrom - Bobbi Brown Cabana Corals haul plus some other browsing.

Bobbi Brown Cabana Corals Haul (which you saw yesterday)


Didn't buy any of these since I don't have babies - but looking at these makes me want to have them. I just about died when I saw those baby boy Pumas.


Stop #3: Saks - I snapped pics of the upcoming Laura Mercier Exclusive set which has the Pink Rose Blush Quad, Bold Berries Eyeshadow Quad, 2 mini brushes, full size Babydoll Lipgloss, a mini mascara and mini foundation primer. I actually saw this at SCP a few weeks ago and I was under the impression it was for sale. My local Saks said it's only available for presale right now. I can't remember the price, but I want to say around $65-68ish?


Picked up the YSL Spring Highlighter + Armani Maestro Quad #6.



Stop #4: Sephora - Tarte Cheek Stain in Tipsy, a nice soft but healthy coral-pink.


What did you find this weekend?

Holiday Haulings from The Primping Parleur

Just wanted to remind all my readers that you can still get 20% off your online order from The Primping Parleur until the end of the month! Just enter the code BEAUTYLOOKBOOKBLOG at the checkout. Check out my original post HERE for more details and information.

Anyone who already ordered, what did you end up getting with the promotional code? I'd love to hear what you bought! I got quite a few presents for my girlfriends - they are all packed up and wrapped right now, but for myself, I got:
  • Paul & Joe Eyeshadow Harvest Moon 95 (waves to Joeybunny for convincing me!)
  • Becca Lip Tints Yasmina (nude-mauve on the left) & Estella (warm but pale nude on the right)
  • Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Powder in Candlelight


P&J Harvest Moon 95 Eyeshadow is a neutral plum-nude with shimmer. I think it will make a good natural contouring shade. The Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight Shimmer Powder is a soft champagne shimmer powder that gives a nice candlelight-like-glow, I used this on my eyes all over the lid which gave a nice glowy effect, but the color just didn't seem all that unique. The Becca Lip Tints are both sheer but very wearable nudes for my pigmented lips. I think I need to try more of these.
