I have been getting a lot of great emails.  Hopefully, some of these deals can come in handy for the rest of you.  Have you seen any awesome ones you want to share?  Now, is a great time to haul.      
I've been on the Ipsy waiting list, but still look at the thread. I thought we could have a shared thread from all the subscription boxes (including non-beauty ones likes underpants and lifestyle such as Wantable and POPSugar). That way we can live vicariously through each others goodies!   (I know there are unboxing videos on YouTube, but I do not have the patience to sit through a five minute video about someone apologizing for the state of their hair. And I know there are blogs where I can see photos, but everyone usually gets different items in their boxes)
Hey All, Want to inform you that lots of new Tarte products and a few Buxom and smash box are added in the sale section a few minutes ago.
Just a quick FYI to anyone with a Costco membership; the store near me (Fremont CA to be exact) has Glam Glow Power Mud for around $36. This is the newer mud-oil hybrid deep cleansing treatment.  Also, to, and more exciting to me, this Costco also has Chanel nail polish!  The price on the nail polish was $20 or so IIRC? Shades included Jade Rose (pale peachy pink), a red and a warm grey (sorry, don't recall the name) and Vertigo, a shimmery dark taupe brown.  Vertigo came home with me.  Whoohoo for Costco! I had no idea they carried prestige brands, it was my first trip there ever. 
The first Sneak Peek has been released!     I think this is a great start!

I stopped in today for the KVD lippy event, and got another sample bag while I was in.

Hey BTers!   I decided to start at new haul thread for the month June. I love seeing everyone's hauls.Share what goodies you got this month. (beauty and non-beauty) Remember guys a haul is a haul big or small.        
With the Rouge Event just around the corner, and money to be spent, heres my list!   My current  (it could grow) wishlist :   With so many holding off on purchasing, and the 4x point reward, I'd love to see what people have their eye on or what they plan on hauling at the event!    So....Whats on your list?!
So, I went to SiJCP today looking for new makeup that comes out. Then at checkout I asked a sample of Smashbox blemish primer. I went in my car and looked at my bag of sample and noticed that the sample container has gotten smaller :/ Is it only from this store I went to? Or your store have the same size container. It is like a dime size and it is usually a size of a quarter. Hmmmm just sharing this. Good thing I went to SiJCP because they are not stingy filling up the container hehehe   P.s. Please excuse my very dry hands/fingers ..I have been cleaning the whole house, doing yard work & packing boxes since we are moving out of the house
I stopped in to Sephora today , I usually only get there 1 time per month since I don't have one that close to me. I got a lot more than what I came in for lol but I had a great visits & can't wait to try my new items!  If anyone has tried any of these products i would love to hear your thoughts on them.     July Haul : Agave Smoothing Trip Set Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Shell Hourglass Ambiant Lighting Palette Fresh Black Tea Age Delay Instant Infusion Fresh Lotus Eye Gel Samples; GlamGlow bright mud eye treatment Hourglass Ambient Luminator Blush in Flush Fresh Sugar Face Polish Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh      
Backups 1.jpg
Most of these are samples or minis I bought in kits.  Quite a few are just full sized items I bought in advance, so I have backups when I run out.  People have asked me about the stash that made my husband ask me to stop buying things I have backups of.     These pictures do not include anything in my current stash, which has a ton of unused makeup from lippies to nail polish and more, especially eye shadows.  I do need to go through my perfume samples a little better, because I have a lot of duplicates I need to move over to the backup section to make more room in my train cases.   Many of these items are duplicates, but I am going to hold onto my HG duplicates from here on out.  One lovely lady just got a bottle of Genefique, which I know she will love, but she will be the last.  That will have me repurchasing less often.  Any item I have a duplicate of that I have not tried, I may be willing to part with.  To the other lovely lady I just traded with, I really wanted to send you the It's a 10, but I must try it when I am done with my current brand.  Hopefully, you score it another way.   Makeup Body Cleansers Face Creams, Eye Creams and Serums Hair styling products (the Sauve ones came from a VoxBox, but I will not put them up for trade as I think my husband may have used each once before returning to the box). Big Items (I am not using antibacterial soap on my body, so no need to fret.  I do use it on my hands in the shower). Miscellaneous Items  Shampoos and Conditioners Face Cleansers and makeup removers Sunscreens/tanners Nail Products Facial wipes (currently working on the Ole Henriksen from Ipsy, so it is in the active stash for those curious). Cotton Unused Stuff hiding Deodorant/ kids stuff (I do use their stuff sometimes). Body Moisturizers Hand Moisturizers Stuff put aside for trades 1 Stuff put aside for trades 2 Stuff put aside for trades 3 Foils (so excited I am down to only one bin.  I've been using them and giving them away).    
I got a promo where I get a $25 GC at Neiman Marcus if I spend $50.  So many choices! My first thought was a Tom Ford lippie but they are only $49 lol   What would you get? Or suggest to me?

Hi everyone!    I just put in an order to E.L.F. because they have an amazing deal today- FREE SHIPPING! Any time I see those words together, I do a happy dance and place an order, pronto. ;D So, to get free shipping, just spend $13 or more, and use the code HAPPYFRIDAY13.   Enjoy!  
Thesupergirl's post about UD's Electric made me want it because of the lovely teal color, Fringe. Then I realized I already have a very similar shade in a LE Benefit palette that I never use (I think I'm the only one that bought The Rich is Back because it was in their sale section for months).   I also bought two Bumble & Bumble Dryspun hairsprays in one week! Totally didn't know I had already ordered it because I was happy hulking out over their holiday GWPs.
Hello, beautiful BTers!   Thought I would keep up with the haul threads tradition and start one for May! I love seeing everyone's hauls -- small and large, beauty and non-beauty -- so do share what you've added to your collection this month!
2-pack replacement heads for $25.00! They have the acne, deep pore, and sensitive heads and you'll get free shipping for spending over $19.99. Sounds like a good buy!
Um, so I might have needed a lot of retail therapy the last few months. Now I am home and was greeted with this when I arrived.      It took four days just to unbox. 
So today was the Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Gala and I had a blast!  You had to book your make over (if you wanted one) ahead of time and buy one of the $10 tickets, $5 of which gets taken off your purchase at the end of your time there. I spent just over $100, and got a ton of freebies.   My makeover was done by a Stila makeup artist and she did a fantastic natural look. (I have the product sheets if anyone wants to do a similar look)   What I bought: Guerlain Meteorites in Medium ($65 plus tax); all Guerlain purchases came with a GWP, which is on the stuff on the top.   (Close up on the Meteorites)   I also bought the Stila highlighter duo. All Stila purchases also came with a GWP, a lovely lipstick in the shade "isla".   Freebies!! There were also coffee and pastries available, which was pretty awesome.    It was also a 20x the points event if you spent more than $75 on cosmetics...which I did.   Did anyone else go the SDM Beauty Gala?   - Sam  
I know some people wanted to see some of what I bought so I'm just posting some pics now.   This is the Burberry palette in Dark Spice   This is the cute case it comes in   This is the Nars Matte Multiple in Siam   This is the Nars Larger than Life Gloss in Como   This is the Burberry Soft Satin Lip Cover in Prune   This is Nars Lipstick in Morocco   This is Burberry Lip Velvet in Hawthorne Berry   This is MAC Heroine   And this is Nars Single Eyeshadow in Fez.   Some of these look lighter in the pictures... I have no idea why my camera won't take true to life colors but that's life, LOL!   I have my Nars foundation and another Burberry lippie coming tomorrow.  I can't wait!
I'm trying SO hard not to break my wallet so I'll live vivaciously through y'all's hauls until end of the month.  If you are an April baby, don't forget to take advantage of the numerous b-day offerings everywhere(sometimes it take a few days after signing up to get the offer): http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Insider/Bir thday-Gifts-and-Promos-from-Cosmetic-Companies/m-p ...   And of course, before you place an order, don't forget to check the current perks and promo threads that will rob you of all your points and will power: http://community.sephora.com/t5/VIB/Active-Promo-C odes-8-The-quot-I-hope-I-don-t-get-into-trouble/td ... http://community.sephora.com/t5/VIB/Active-List-of -100-Point-Perks/td-p/869671 http://community.sephora.com/t5/VIB/Active-List-of -250-500-and-Male-Point-Perks/td-p/869679   And ebates or whatever rebate website you are using. So what did you get this month?

I was thinking about the number of highlighters I have and then I wondered 'what's my total haul over time?'   So I added everything up...   5 Foundations 15 Blushes 2 Concealers 3 Bronzers 9 Highlighters 2 Finishing powders 195 Eye shadows (15 singles, 113 in palettes, 57 in customizable palettes, and 10 pencil shadows) 60 eyeliners (51 liners, 3 double ended liners, 2 liquid and one rim liner) 2 Brow gels   This is all active makeup - not stuff I've set aside for maybe trades, and does not include any backups. I forgot to count my lip stuff, I will have to do that later!   What do you have?
I was told by a little Nordstrom's birdy that starting on Monday, Nordy's will be going live with their Deluxe Sample beauty GWP bag.  She said that it has 20 deluxe samples in it and it is limited time only.  I may be mad at them, but who can resist 20 deluxe samples???
