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).

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.        
i bought the Buxom full on lip polish and it is wonderful! it has my name. the color Jane is so awesome. its like a berry color.  my friend and i went and got ourselves lipglosses that matched our name. went up 21 points! yessssssss....
If you had $1000 to spend on beauty products, what would you buy?!    I would get Tom Ford eye shadow palette in Orchid Haze Tom Ford brushes Hakuhodo brushes more NARS Sheer Glow Marc Jacobs Mousse foundation (i really want to try it) Bobbi Brown BBU palette Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette
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  
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!
Today I got a surprize present via UPS.  I had ordered Jimmy Choo's Flash with my Nordstrom's notes and Nordy's accidentally sent it to the wrong address.  They were able to reroute the perfume but not the samples since they were sent separately and can't be shipped to another location other than the original shipping address.    Today I got a package full of deluxe samples and the nicest note from the customer service rep that helped me telling me to enjoy the samples and hopefully I'll find something new that I love (she remembered that I told her that I went crazy on some items that I got as samples in the Norstroms GWP bag).  I get good customer service when I call Sephora's Rouge line customer service (not so much in store) but that was above and beyond what I expected.    I don't get me wrong, I love Sephora and have been a long time customer but I hope that a story like this will help them step things up when it comes to Rouge status.    
HSN has free shipping on beauty today (4/24), for their "Spring Beauty Event."  In addition, you can get 15% off with code is  APRILBEAUTY15 , and can only be used once per account (expires 4/30).   I purchased the  Korres Glazed & Glossed Lip Butter Glaze 4-piece Collection , as a backup for the set I got from Sephora in January.  I really love these, so while I'm sad Sephora doesn't carry them anymore, I am really excited to get a great deal from HSN.

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!
These are some great deals!  Just in case anyone's interested    
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 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".  
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???
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?  
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!
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 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...

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'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!!

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?
