Awesome April Hauls! Show me show me show me. =)
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?

Space.NK $20 off $75
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!

Subscription box photo sharing
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)

What are your last minute VIB/ROUGE sale buys?
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.

Who doesn't like deluxe samples???
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???

Free Shipping for Too Faced Cosmetics
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.

Total Haul - Everything I Currently Have :)
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?

February Food Haul From MYchoi to Me! :)
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?

More Black!!
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...

Searching and Searching
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?

Snow day gift to myself out of boredom
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?

Stop me... Or don't.
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!

Eyeshadow battle: help me choose!
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?
