[ Edited ]

For a few years now, when they do the extra points, my mom gives me her credit card number and I order things I'll want for my bday (in November) and Christmas and have it sent to her. It's mostly things I'll be running out of in the winter anyway, but also a few splurges. My parents give me some and she sells some to my grandparents to give me too. (Coincidentally, my mom wouldn't let me wear makeup til I was 17, but apparently now that I'm 32, it's ok to have makeup, lol.)


I forgot to photograph the polishes and I just ordered the sale items today, and obviously I don't have the bday/Christmas stuff yet, but here's a picture of the rest. It's been a good August. Smiley Happy




Here's what I ordered for birthday/Christmas:

- beautyblender Solid Cleanser
- Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Cherry
- Fresh Sugar Shine Lip Treatment
- Guerlain Météorites Compact Powder in Teint Rose
- Guerlain Shine Automatique in Rose Pompon
- LORAC Mint Edition Palette
- NARS Light Reflecting Setting Powder
- Shiseido Facial Cotton
- Tarte Maracuja C-Brighter Eye Treatment


And what I got for myself:
- Anastasia Brow Wiz in Ash Blonde

- Clinique Quickliner Intense in Intense Peacock
- Guerlain Rouge G Lipstick in Gracia
- Kat Von D Saint Palette
- Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Powder
- Living Proof Flex Shaping Hairspray
- Living Proof Restore Shampoo & Conditioner
- Marc Jacobs Blush in Reckless
- Murad Anti-Aging Moisturizer
- Mustela Sunscreen Stick - This was for my toddler, but I love it too!

- Tarte Brazilliance Self Tanner
- UD Ammo Palette
- UD De-Slick Setting Spray
- UD Lip Pencil in Rush
And a few sale items:
- Sephora by OPI Nail Colour in How Cute is That?, Neutral Beauty, Ocean Love Potion, & Only Gold for Me (I'll be returning Neutral Beauty, it's pretty ugly.)

Great haul, lady! This is probably the only time the Meteorites Compact will look so nice lol Smiley Happy

Re: August Hauls

(0) Hearts

That's actually the Laura Mercier compact.  The Meteorites one is in the gift list.  

Re: August Hauls

ok, now that is just too cute.  from your description i was envisioning a high school girl until you mentioned your age, and then later your toddler!  it's adorable that your parents AND grandparents are giving makeup for christmas presents.  Reminds me of beautytester telling us her parents took her to Build-a-Bear to celebrate her graduation .... from college... Smiley Happy

Re: August Hauls

Lol. I did feel a little silly the first time I asked if she'd do it ("Mommy, buy me makeup.") but she's used to it now. My MIL is a terrible present buyer. She spends a ton, but it's all useless. So for at least 6 years, I've been making really detailed bday/Christmas lists, and there's always a lot from Sephora on it, but I hated not getting the points for all that stuff, so that's why I order through my account on my mom's card.

Re: August Hauls

We picked up the same samples! LOL. I always select Chloe whenever I see it as an option! Same with the Algenist 10day serum Smiley Happy

Re: August Hauls

(0) Hearts

I have so many Chloe samples I think my husband thinks they breed.  Actually, he wonders how I end up with so many perfume samples, and he's only seen what I leave hanging around. Smiley Happy  Many are from sets, but also from too many orders.


I took the Chloe samples and combined them into an atomizer to help tidy up a bit.

Re: August Hauls

Have you tried the Microdelivery peel pads? And can you let me know how the Enlighten me Serum goes??? Smiley Happy

Re: August Hauls

I had not previously tried either the Philosophy peel pads and the OH serum, but they were on sale...I couldn't resist. Smiley Happy

I just washed my face and used the peel pad, so here's my first reaction:

The pads are very wet. I cut one in half. They smell slightly lemon-y, but I don't mind it. The pads are also smooth, they do not have any ridges or anything. I applied over my whole face and neck, and it seems to take awhile to absorb. My face still felt a little sticky for about 5 minutes. My face didn't freak out and turn red right away, so that's a good sign. In fact, I think my face looks calm and brighter. First impression: good!

I'll keep you posted on the serum!

Re: August Hauls

(0) Hearts

I've been curious about them. And please keep me updated! Smiley Happy
