December Dillards VIP Party Haul!

Hi!
**all items purchased by me

Time for another haul!...from last month...oops.  This one is from the Dillards After-Hours VIP Party.  I believe everything was 10% off on the store with little to no exclusions.  

The first thing I purchased was a pair of earrings I had been eyeing for quite a while so I figured that with the discount I'd finally get them.

The other thing I knew I wanted to get while the discount was available, was something from the Lancome counter.  There also happened to be a gift with purchase that day so I really did well.
gift with purchase and 
my purchase of Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate (1 fl. oz. bottle)
~I wanted to start out with the 1 fl. oz. bottle (other than the samples I showed in my Project "Finish") just in case my skin stopped responding to it like it has soooo many other things.~

Inside the pretty pink rose bag:
 full size Color Design lipstick in Wine Party (cream finish)
sample size Definicils High Definition Mascara
Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector deluxe sample
High Resolution Refill-3X Triple Action Renewal Anti-Wrinkle Cream deluxe sample
Tresor Perfumed Body Lotion, Wine Party lipstick, 
Blush Subtil (Delicate Oil-Free Powder Blush) in Shimmer Pink Pool - deluxe sample size
swatches of the blush (left) and lipstick (right)
just 2-3 swipes of the blush to build it up to what you see and only 1 swipe of the lipstick

For my last stop, one of the bonus specials was if you got a consultation with a Clinique beauty adviser, you would be able to get a free mini mascara.  I've been wanting a more gentle, but effective, way to remove makeup (other than eyes) so I figured it was the perfect time to see what they would suggest.
I purchased the Clinique Comforting Cream Cleanser, which is supposed to be able to remove long wearing makeup without irritating the skin.  I believe this is either in the dry or sensitive skin category.
sample of High Impact Waterproof Mascara in Black (haven't tried it yet - a. I already had 2 mascaras open and b. I typically don't use waterproof mascara).

I also bought the Mister a sweater vest, but that's not very interesting/applicable to my blog.  The only thing about purchasing items from the department store beauty counters is that if there's promotions going for multiple brands at the same time you end up with several separate purchases...  Oh well.

See anything you've used before?  Any makeup remover (for foundation) recommendations?
