Re: Flawless February 2024 Hauls

A couple of hauls from last month made their way here, as did a few from this week when I hit 'pause" on this month's no buy. 
2 - Haul - Harlem Speakeasy 1.jpg
Spoiler
Last fall, I frolicked about NYC before Sephoria and during one of those outings, I came across a few wonderfully scented candles from Harlem Perfume Co. (formerly known as the Harlem Candle Co.) Because Sephoria was yet to come (and because I had already made some unplanned (but still well loved) purchases), I decided not to purchase any of the candles. I found them again late last month and did not resist. This Speakeasy candle has a soft, warm, slightly boozy, slightly sweet scent to it, not as smoky as I expected but good nonetheless. Plan to explore their other candle offerings; this likely won't be the last candle I pick up from the brand.  @CookieGirl1  shared on the BEAUTY NEWS 2.0 thread that Harlem Perfume Co. is one of the brands in this year's Sephora Accelerate program. I love the detailing on the inside of the box.

Spoiler
I don't remember how this brand (Soshe Beauty) got on my radar, but my initial plan was to pick up one, just one, lipstick, and well, one thing lead to another and here we are - a lip set bundle, a black eyeliner and two refills in different shades, and a mascara. Yeah, not sure how we got here. Will try to post swatches later this week or find a way to include one or two items in the Capsule Makeup Collection Challenge  next month. 
2 - Haul - Londontown.jpg
Spoiler
I've enjoyed the few polishes I have from Londontown so it was an easy 'yes' when I saw this Valentine's Day Manicure Set last month.
2 - Hauls - Sephora.jpg
Spoiler
I learned that the SEPHORA COLLECTION Clean Eye Mask Caffeine were half off from @danielledanielle   (thank you, thank you!!).I mean, suuure, it looks like I picked up a lot of these masks, but I feel like I actually restrained myself.  I decided to Buy Online, Pick-up In Store (BOPIS) and got an extra 100 points as part of the Passport to Beauty Challenge.

I went in store to pick up my eye masks yesterday (aka National Lash Day) and picked up 2 backups of Lancôme Monsieur Big Waterproof Mascara 01 Waterproof Big is The New Black - this is a GOAT product for me. It really is the Greatest OAll Time. I'm in the middle of a couple of large projects and about to start another one that will keep me preoccupied for the next few months. The eye masks and mascara will keep me looking less tired than I'm sure I'll feel. 
And last, but not least ... 
2 - Haul - Girl Scout Cookies.jpg
I will be placing this box in the lunch room (the one furthest from my office 😆) as soon as I get into work tomorrow.
 
Fingers crossed 🤞 I can upload this tonight. I'm logged on so that is a plus, but I tried three times last night and got caught in the glitch that's being worked on after typing out everything.

Swatches of Soshe Beauty lipsticks and eyeliners 

2 - Haul - Soshe 3a.jpeg

  • Formula is light, sheer at first but is buildable. This is 3 swipes. 
  • Just Right is described as a pink nude. It shows up darker and warmer in the photos. It’s more a peachy pink IRL. 
  • Speakeasy is described as a dusty rose. Shows up darker in picture; it’s a slightly brighter hue IRL.

 

2 - Haul - Soshe 3b.jpeg

  • These shades are a little brighter IRL than they photograph here 
  • Glides on beautifully
  • Great staying power. Didn’t budge, even when I rubbed on the swatches. Needed soap and water and scrubbing with my nails to remove.

If swatching is any indicator, these will be good, @Samtian! 👍🏼 Working on using my pan it! makeup as well as ones I set aside for this week’s BIC Inspired makeup capsule, but I may put a couple of these to the test over the weekend. 

Re: Flawless February 2024 Hauls

Amazing haul @itsfi🥰 I always also often get glitches on here❤️❤️❤️

Re: Flawless February 2024 Hauls

@happyskincare, thank you. So far, everything I’ve tried has been a hit! 👍🏼 

 

Every so often, there are glitches with logging on to the threads, usually when an update is in the works. @ TeamBIC is on it and working with its vendors; hoping it’s just a little while longer - miss interacting with folks here! 

Re: Flawless February 2024 Hauls

I am going to have to try the eye masks.    @itsfi 

Re: Flawless February 2024 Hauls

@itsfi  great idea!

Re: Flawless February 2024 Hauls

@CorgiMommy, definitely worth checking out. There’s usually a 30% off Sephora Collection products during the spring sale; if they offer that promo again, it’s a great time to grab a few. 

Re: Flawless February 2024 Hauls

What a great haul!! @itsfi the candle sounds so appealing 

Re: Flawless February 2024 Hauls

@lmaster, thank you. They have some great variety of candle scents. 

Re: Flawless February 2024 Hauls

@itsfi You spoil yourself, you deserve it! Fabulous hauls! Can't wait to see the swatches.

Re: Flawless February 2024 Hauls

Awww, thank you @Samtian! All the newness and sales have made it a challenge to rein it in, but I feel good about my purchases - some tried and true on sale that make for a good restock and some newness to play with. 

Re: Flawless February 2024 Hauls

@itsfi that Londontown set is so cute!  And that's fun that you found a new candle brand to try.  

Re: Flawless February 2024 Hauls

@CookieGirl1, thank you. The new candles will be a fun adventure; love candles. Will

have to find some nail art project for the Londontown polishes.

Re: Flawless February 2024 Hauls

@itsfi  The most important thing here is that you picked the best flavor of Girl Scout cookies. 😂 And it’s a good thing I don’t work in your office building, lest a cookie crumb trail lead everyone to my desk and 95% of the “missing” box contents. 

 

Also, thanks for the Harlem Candle—err, Perfume Company reminder! Someone told me about their candles last year, so they’ve been on my Try It list for a while but I haven’t made a purchase yet. Note to self! Speakeasy sounds good, even if it’s missing the smokiness I prefer in scents along those lines. Glad you’re enjoying it! 

Re: Flawless February 2024 Hauls

@WinglessOne, ♥️ ️ for your reply! New flavors come and go but the samoas have always been my favorite Girl Scout cookies! I was telling @ather (another devotee of the samoas) that I now just buy the samoas cookies. So good.  

 

As for the cookie crumbs, if it’s just the crumbs and no cookie to be found, it’s all circumstantial evidence. 😆 I received a jury summons late last year and they talked about circumstantial evidence for a good while, trying to explain it. They need to use the “cookie crumb” story. 

Do you have a Sift cupcake shop in your area? They occasionally have a samoas cupcake. It’s delicious! 😋 As is the samoas milkshake that one of the burger places occasionally has on their menu. 

 

I have a list of candles I want to pick up next from the brand (I instinctively want to call them the Harlem Candle Co.) I wouldn’t mind at all if Speakeasy had more smokiness to it. Do let us know if you decide to make a purchase. 

Re: Flawless February 2024 Hauls

@itsfi  You and @ather are truly ladies of exquisite taste! At least once a year, certain friends and relatives try to convince me that Thin Mints (or some other variety) are the best Girl Scout cookies. They’re welcome to their opinions, but they are wrong. Samoas reign supreme. 

 

Looks like Sift might be a CA-only shop? In my town, we have Molly’s Cupcakes (one of my favorites) and they usually have a samoa cupcake on the menu. It’s tasty in a samoa-inspired way, though I don’t like the shredded coconut on their cupcake. And see, that’s the magical thing about the Girl Scouts’ samoa cookies: I’ve always hated shredded coconut (not to be confused with nice big chunks of coconut, which are delicious; it’s a texture thing), yet I’ve had a lifelong love affair with samoas. 😂 The shredded coconut on those cookies somehow works. That’s how good samoas are. And now I wonder if anyplace here does a samoa milkshake… gotta investigate that. 

 

Nordstrom carries some Harlem Candle/Perfume Co. candles; I’ve got a few wishlisted. But tonight I went back to the brand’s site and gosh, a travel candle set leapt right into my cart! Then a full size candle snuck in, and somehow an EdP sampler set also crept in there. I need to visit my local Nordy and see if they have any of these candles in-store, so I can smell a couple in person.

"At least once a year, certain friends and relatives try to convince me that Thin Mints (or some other variety) are the best Girl Scout cookies. They’re welcome to their opinions, but they are wrong. Samoas reign supreme."

 

Hahaha @WinglessOne! Yes, everyone has their favorite Girl Scout cookies. Whenever someone shares that theirs is something other than Samoas (usually Thin Mints), my first thought is "more Samoas for me." 😆 I hear what you are saying about the shredded coconut. The ratio of chocolate, caramel, and coconut on that cookie is perfection! 😘 Yeah, I usually like my milkshakes on the simpler side - just a few flavors, nothing too extravagent, but that samoas milkshake I had was ... well, a Girl Scout Samoas cookie in a milkshake. 

 

Ahhhh Nordstrom. How I miss having one in the city. 😞 I'm not sure the other stores closest to me would carry the candles. I may have to check with the sales associate I usually work with to see if she has the candles in her store. Oh yes, I too have found that things seem to appear in my cart when I visit their site. They all seem to be candles of interest to me. lol. Ooooh, a fragrance discovery set?! Love those - great for seeing how a scent will actually wear. 

Re: Flawless February 2024 Hauls

@itsfi, the candle is just 🤌🏽🤌🏽.  It's a classy looking candle.  I also heard boozy candle, and immediately was like 💸

 

And yay, you got the eye masks!

Re: Flawless February 2024 Hauls

@danielledanielle, I’m so glad you told me about the eye masks being on sale. 🥰 I do love them and, of course, I love a deal! 

I need to see if there’s any place here that stocks the candle brand. I love the jar - it’ll be repurposed once I finish the candle.  I was on their website and there’s “a few” more I want try. 

Re: Flawless February 2024 Hauls

@itsfi  Wow. Amazing haul! Look at all those eye masks!! You will be set for a few days!!! That candle sounds amazing! I will keep my eye out for that brand! I do like a smoky scent!! That nail polish set is so cute! How could you not resist it!! Mmmmm those are my fav cookies! We have a brand here and if I pick a box up I don’t think they last a day!!! Oops!!
