The 15% off at Sephora is still going on, as well as great promos at a couple other places. 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?
They carry the Hourglass blushes (backordered, but most of them are OOS on Sephora right now)... need I say more? The code is DISCOVER20, and it's valid until next Tuesday, April 22. I picked up a 4-pack of Clarisonic brush heads (I'm stocked up for the next 2.5 years now ), the Hourglass blush in Radient Magenta (thanks to everyone who helped me decide ), and the Hourglass Illume Creme-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Bronze Light. I split the items up into two orders and got a $40 discount! These are the Sephora product pages for the items I picked up: https://www.sephora.com/cleansing-brush-head-value -pack-P377534?skuId=1494368 https://www.sephora.com/ambient-lighting-blush-P38 4963?skuId=1581339 http://www.sephora.com/illume-creme-to-powder-bron zer-duo-P210576?skuId=1074459 I should be on a no-buy, but I felt this deal was too good to pass up! Happy shopping, everyone!
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)
I only bought 3 things on the VIB sale. Some of the things I wanted were sold out even before the sale became available to VIBs. I bought MUFE Duo Matte powder, Electric Palette, and the beauty blender solid cleaner for my brushes as I don't own a BB. I'm still considering the Marc Jacobs and lancome foundations. Maybe an OCC lip pencil. I have a lot of stuff on my wish list I just don't know if Sephora w/ the 15% off is the best price for all that I want. Please share your last minute list.
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???
Hi ladies and gents, In keeping with the haul tradition, I thought I'd go ahead and start one for March! I can't WAIT to see all your fun and colorful goodies for the upcoming Spring season . This post is welcome to all, and as lilahtov said, a haul is a haul no matter how small .
I was so excited to be able to order the Sephora Favorites SuperStars Set last friday because I missed out last year when I asked for it for Christmas and it sold out way before Christmas. Then the order got cancelled this morning because the "item was out of stock".
The spring collection is now available on Too Faced's site. They are offering free shipping on all orders today only. Plus you get a choice of two deluxe samples. Just in case anyone's interested... I just got a couple of the Melted lipsticks in Nude and Coral. When I went through the checkout, it acted as if I was being charged for shipping, but then on the final page ("review"), it showed shipping was free. Also, if you aren't on their mailing list, signing up gets you a 20% off coupon for any purchase. And they are 4% cash back on ebates right now.
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?
The lovely MYchoi was fabulous enough to offer to ship me some delicious treats from California to Pennsylvania. She knows I LOVE Asian food but have no Asian markets near my homestead. Here are some of the wonderful things she included: ^Large flat rate box JAM-PACKED with goodies! ^Seaweed. ^Melon flavored gummies (one of my favorites!) and melon flavored hard candies. ^Green tea, panda, and strawberry pocky. I busted into the green tea pocky IMMEDIATELY! ^Various crackers/biscuits/pies. ^Bae, various mochi, and green tea swiss rolls (another fave). ^Strawberry Calpico, aloe drink, and melon yogurt drink. Do any of you have any favorite Asian foods, or foods from your culture or other cultures that you love?
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 just got my Urban Decay haul today! Excited but pissed... I got the Feminine and Dangerous Palettes for $12 but I ended up duplicating colors that I already have in UD singles. I've been trying to make a conscience effort not to do that but for $12, I couldn't resist getting them but the palettes are great. I'm happy I got them. But my thing is that I got the Deluxe Pre-Release item... and it's another black eyeliner. It's called Black Velvet. It's a travel sized which I like but I have like 3 Zero's and 2 Perversions that came in other sets. They really didn't go into specifics in the card about what makes it different from the others other to say that it's "velvety". But it's still BLACK! Now I don't know what to do with all these black eyeliners...
Hello lovely ladies! I figured I'd get an early start on the hauls thread for February, as it seems that many of us just can't get enough of the Spring collections! Plus, I know that everyone here loves getting packages Oh, and who could forget that Valentine's Day is coming up...and Mother's Day! P lease feel free to share to share your hauls. A haul is a haul no matter how small!
I'd rather buy La Mer than spend my $$ going out tonight :x Normally my beauty hauls don't have much La Mer products in there thats why I decided to post this one because I am very excited to add to my La Mer collection!! Also SO excited to play around with the Naked 3 palette!!
Is it bad that on the first of the month I wake up like a kid at Christmas, turn on my computer, and proceed to shop my lil heart away?Is it bad that makeup hauls are always the first thing purchased? Is it bad...probably... Sorry... Psst....not sorry
So.. I just realized how focused I get on makeup sometimes. I FINALLY found the two new Milani baked blushes after going to around 10 CVS around me PLUS a few Walgreens here and there. Thankfully my bf is so supportive and was the reason my motivation kept going at points. Ugh it was driving me crazy especially since CVS is having there BOGO right now. I jumped for joy when I finally found them with a partial sale. (Sad I know) Please tell me I'm not alone. haha Does anyone else get determined on finding a product, that they won't stop looking until they find it?
I am very happy to report how happy I am with the recent VIB lip gloss promo I recently received. It came with a Buxom Lipgloss in "Prow", Stila Lip Glaze in "Starfruit" and BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie in "Rebel". Very nice sizes and all for FREE.. .LOVE IT! Also included in my recent shipment (but not in promo of course) is Fresh Sugar Rose lip balm (my HG lip balm) Roses de Chloe and Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 hour Blush in "Amused."

I haven't bought myself a present since Feb 1st (I know, so long haha) because I'm trying to save money, but I decided I would allow myself to get something small from my loves list today, and I can't choose! Bite Agave lip mask, bite lippies (the duos are on sale!), Nars Kuaui (sp), stila stay all day lipgloss (trying to find a guiltless dupe for lime crime), stila mascara (my favorite), bite lip pencil, and urban decay nail Polish is what I keep adding and deleting from my basket... I want to spend enough to use a promo. Help me decide And on that note... Has anyone else been having problems posting? The post button keeps hiding behind our avatars no matter which computer I use lately
I JUST got the Naked 2 palette the other day to complete my collection, I'm getting the NARSissist palette for V-day (I think), I already have the Nars Kauai in my basket just waiting for me (thanks Lilatov ), but I CAN'T stop staring at the Tarte Be MATTEnificient palette, it's so pretty. I had a dream I went to Sephora last night at closing time and couldn't find it and the SA's were all yelling at me, LOL. It's so unnecessary right?? Tell me it's the dumbest and ugliest looking palette you've ever seen, that the fall-out actually drowns and chokes you because it's so bad, that the case is a huge piece of cr* that shattered all over your vanity, that the shadows are so chalky it makes you look like you just walked out of a volcano explosion... anything!
Go check out the current sample offerings, if you haven't already. I've been itching to try the GlamGlow, and the eye treatment AND the sexy mud mask are available. Florabotanica is there, too, and some other goodies! Get 'em while they're hot!
Hi all, I'm having the biggest dilemma of haul time. (Anyone? I thought it was funny ) I am trying to decide between the Nars Kauai duo (after which I've been lusting since its release) and the KVD Esperanza palette (see parenthetical statement above). Pretty palette for $36 or dynamic duo for $35? I really don't want to shell out for both, since I don't NEED either. Thoughts, my beloved BBFFs?
