Last Minute Hauls, Anyone?

Alright, so with the buzz of Chic Week there were TONS of posts about hauls, I'm not even going to lie, I took full advantage of CW and made 2 hauls and a third last night! Though the majority of the money spend and products purchased was for friends and family (I'm their resident Sephora-holic and rounds everyone up when I get a coupon), I did get to do a tad of shopping for me.

 

What I want to know is, did anyone here make any last minute hauls, and if so, what did you get? Was the ticking of the clock and the tempting discount that finally drove you to making your purchase? Was it just timing and you were finally able to make it in a store or shop online? Did you finally get that email notification of an item being in stock?

 

Last night I purchased MUFE's Mist & Fix Setting Spray (for my cousin), Sephora's Smokey Studio 2 palette (birthday gift for my friend's daughter), and Sephora's Pantone Universe Dazzling 4 lip gloss set (birthday gift for my friend's daughter). Made it up to a little over $50 after the discount too so yay for free shipping!

 

Now, tell me tell me, Beauty Talkers, what are your last minute hauls?

Re: Last Minute Hauls, Anyone?

I was SOOOO tempted last night to buy more items but resisted. 

Re: Last Minute Hauls, Anyone?

That's awesome! You have much more will power than I do!!!!  

Re: Last Minute Hauls, Anyone?

The force is strong with this one!

Re: Last Minute Hauls, Anyone?

I still have yet to make another order...sorry wallet!

Re: Last Minute Hauls, Anyone?

I stopped by yesterday and picked up a second Laura Mercier Caviar Stick (steel) and got a ton of attitude from the cast member at my local store for requesting my coupon back (since it was good through today!).

 

Made it easy NOT to spend more today.

Re: Last Minute Hauls, Anyone?

Awww, that's a bummer, maybe she wasn't familiar with the updated addition of extra day for VIBs.

Re: Last Minute Hauls, Anyone?

She was.  But didn't think it was necessary to give me the coupon back.  So, I waited until she called a manager to open her drawer. Hmph.

 

It's a lose-lose for me: my local SiJCP is awesome but doesn't have the brands I really lust over (Dior, Laura Mercier, etc). My local Sephora- has great brands, not very nice cast members as a whole (I've had issues- like having to spend 45 minutes on the phone with the VIB line in-store because of a prior issue).

Re: Last Minute Hauls, Anyone?

I hate that SiJCP don't carry a ton of brands!! I can't see any of the lipsticks i want to see before buying!! Drives me nuts, I hate returning products but if i can't see what it actually looks like, it might not look good on me!! And my Sephora doesn't carry Laura Mercier. I can't try any of her amazing foundations that have amazing reviews!! I wish SiJCP would carry more products.

I bought the Ole set that's currently being offered for 500 point perk last Christmas sale for $10 & I definitely stocked up on them!  =)

Re: Last Minute Hauls, Anyone?

I have a ongoing love affair with that serum.....we're in love!!! Smiley Tongue

Re: Last Minute Hauls, Anyone?

My friend wants me to pick up some items for her...so it appears I'll be up for another haul post Chic Week soon!

 

Let me know how you like it Triciaann!

Re: Last Minute Hauls, Anyone?

last night i got the big bottle of devacurl no-poo shampoo and a big bottle of marchesa parfum!

Re: Last Minute Hauls, Anyone?

I got the Marchesa set on Thursday- not quite a last minute thing, but I'm already in love!

Re: Last Minute Hauls, Anyone?

I got three benefit cream eyeshadows (Bikini, RSVP, Birthday Suit)

Boscia facial scrub

Sephora liquid eyeliner

Buxom Lipstick (Rogue, Scoundrel)

Sephora sharpener (I had an urban decay one and it ruined my eyeliner pencils =( and they are urban decay 24/7 Glide Ons)

Makeup Forever Primer in 0

Philosophy Purity Made Simple Facial Cleanser and Makeup Remover

 

All in all I'm extremely happy with my purchases but I mayyy have to return my sephora liquid eyeliner because it started smudging today when I wore it =(. 

 

Re: Last Minute Hauls, Anyone?

The best sharpener I ever owned is Chanel's free pencil sharpener, the eyeliner pencil will look like brand new just as store bought after sharpening, it's amazing.  I got it for free - bought one of their eyeliner pencil & it was included inside the packaging, I didn't even know until I came home & opened it up!  =)

 

Try Makeup Forever's Waterproof Cream Shadow collection as eyelining product if you don't mind the work - a popular beauty YouTuber who has super oily eye lids said it worked the best, even better than the MAC's popular eyeliner.

Re: Last Minute Hauls, Anyone?

I was springcleaning my makeup stash and finally decided I should return my hourglass ambient light in Dim. It evened my skintone but made me dull? 

Anyways, I returned it for $45 store credit + 15% off and I got my moms bday present, Murad rapid age spot and pigment lightening serum $60 - for $6!

 

I'm really excited about this because I'm on a low buy lol.

I know I technically still spent the $45, but theres nothing like handing over $6 for high end lol

Re: Last Minute Hauls, Anyone?

Niiiiice! I once got my mom the Murad serum too for her hyperpigmentation. She's using Ole's Enlighten Me serum now, it's a touch more gentle and doesn't have hydroquinone which can make the skin light sensitive.

 

That's so nice that you use the credit for your mom!

Re: Last Minute Hauls, Anyone?

Ooo I may see if I can find a sample of Ole for her to try out. But you know how it is with people and their beauty staples lol. The hydroquinone explains it: summer is the season of sunhats and long sleeves for my mom.

Re: Last Minute Hauls, Anyone?

I got the $45 Enlighten Me kit, with a mini serum, full 1 oz lotion, and a trial of their 3 step power peel. It's a good way for your mom to try it out rather than spending the $45 on the serum alone.

 

Yeah, I totally hear you about the beauty staples! Smiley Very Happy

 

Your mom seems to be pretty savy on sun protection, kudos to her!
