Hi!!!It's my first post of 2010, Happy New Year to everyone who I haven't greeted yet..so how did you spend your new year? mine was a bit different from what I'm used to instead of a party at home we just had a simple dinner with friends at the resto and went downtown for the strawberry drop & fireworks and the next day we did the usual thing we always do every new year, go to NYC but this year was more fun because we had mom & some friends with us....

we also spend the last day of the year in the sweetest place on earth, where else? Hershey, PA...
I never get tired of this place, I'm always fascinated with the Hershey kisses street lights & the street names like Cocoa avenue & Chocoloate avenue....
It was also the last day (for this season) of the Hershey Candylane at HersheyPark....

The Carousel
The Kissmas Tree
and here's our way of Welcoming New Year...

the countdown

and the strawberry drop

I didn't get the chance to take a pic of the fireworks
cuz' I have been taking video of the whole thing...

then the next day.....
check out one of our hotel room, did JFK really slept here??

Unto the Haul
Well, I've been good...I can't believe myself,
I just went to Sephora and got myself these $10 Goodies
Stila foundation wardrobe in warm, Nars Concealer(Custard/Ginger),
Fresh Magic Wands Mini Mascara Duo & Benefit to go beauty bestsellers
and these lip products

Sephora Lip Attitude-Glamour in 02 & 05, Dior Addict in Jersey Pink &
YSL ROUGE VOLUPTÉ in 13 Peach Passion

The Sephora Lip Attitude lipsticks are fairly good....the 02 Pink Lover is my current favorite...

I regretted getting the Dior Addict in Jersey Pink...it's just the wrong shade for me...it's not sticky but because of too much glitter on it...I look too pale like I've been wearing a blue lipgloss or I'm cyanotic...

The YSL ROUGE VOLUPTÉ isn't part of my NYC haul, I got it last december but I have to rave about it....It's the creamiest, most pigmented weird color lipstick I've ever had in my entire life..I was so shock that a bright peach coral shade would look good on me plus the packaging is so beautiful....the downside it would look flaky on my dry lips if I don't use lipbalm before applying it...but still I love it and I can't wait to get my hands on other shades...

Well, that's it for now....



XOXO,
Iris

Diane said...

Great photos, looks like you had fun. YSL #13 was the first YSL lippy I ever bought it's a great shade. I bought that Jersey Pink lipgloss too and it never looked right on me either! I love the picture of your hotel room, I miss New York =)

amynaree said...

glad you had a good new year!! nice haul from sephora, how are you liking the $10 goodies? I wanted to get the NARS concealer too but for some reason didn't! Is it any good? It seems like the perfect shade for me too. I'm loving the Benefit stuff especially the primer and foundation faker are my favorites (thinking of getting full size now).

I heard great reviews about those Sephora lippies from Fuzkittie, now I want to try! Plus they are fairly inexpensive :)

Omg, the Hershey pics remind me of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. How cute that it was a strawberry drop...hehe. *^_^* And what a chic hotel room...love the pillows! Dang, you hauled some good stuff at Sephora didn't you? I'm still a YSL Rouge Volupte virgin...hahaha! Love all your goodies.

You got the Stila set! I saw it for 10 bucks too, and debated forever whether to get it! I didn't...
Is it any good??? Should I regret my decision?

K said...

Have you tried out the Stila set yet? I got the exact same one (same shade too) but I haven't gotten around to trying it yet.

lindah said...
