Friends and Family Haul

My first round of the 2010 FF sale is:


Dior Minaudiere Palette

Tom Ford Black Orchid

Josie Maran Argan Oil


I always quickly purchase my absolute "must-haves" so they don't run out, then I go back through my shopping list and figure out what else I want!



What did you get?

Re: Friends and Family Haul

I was pretty restrained and walked away today with:


  • Ole Henriksen Fresh Start Eye Creme
  • Clinique Pore Minimizer Instant Perfector
  • Clinique Clarifying Lotion 4 (400 ml)
  • Boscia Peppermint Blotting Linens (x3)

But those holiday palettes and gift sets were totally tempting.  I might not be as strong tomorrow!

Re: Friends and Family Haul

Aaaaand... oops, I did it again.


My friend also asked me to pick up for her:


  • Clarisonic Normal Brush Heads (x2)
  • MUFE Sensitive Eyes Makeup Remover
  • Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion (Blemish Prone/Oily Skin)
  • UD Shadow Primer Potion

I don't think we were too terrible.  I destroyed the coupon scan code after I was done so that I wouldn't go back for thirds!!

Re: Friends and Family Haul

Oh my. Third order.


-- Josie Maran Love Nest

-- Tarte Picture Perfect Duo

-- TheBalm TimeBalm Concealer

-- NARS Duo in Cheyenne ($8! How could you not?)


STILL haven't redeemed a skin care challenge reward, & didn't go for any of the 100 point perks or the 500 point perk. Overall, I didn't do to bad but I really didn't plan on making more than one order!






Re: Friends and Family Haul

I took the FF sale as an opportunity to get some Christmas shopping done!  I managed to have some self control and not get a ton of things for myself with my birthday also coming right up.

I got:

Men's fragrance deluxe sampler set

Sephora by OPI 18 piece mini set

Urban Decay Little Sins eyeshadow primer set

Philosophy The supernatural mascara x2

Sephora Favorites Little black eyeliner set

Anthony Logistics clean start kit

Re: Friends and Family Haul

Ok, second haul -


NARS Eyeshadow Duo "Cheyenne"

Dior's new Creme Gel Foundation (crossing fingers lightest shade isn't too dark)


Now it's on to for their FF sale to pick up some brands not sold at Sephora!


If you don't hear from me again it's because my husband shot me.

Haha, I had to bargain with my husband to buy some stuff with Friends and Family lol. He really wants to buy a new dirt bike, but I told him if he lets me buy make up every 2 weeks, he can get that dirt bike and I promise I wont complain if he doesn't haha. We will see how it works out.


I bought:

 Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Blush

Fresh Sugar Rush Value Set

Smashbox Cream Eye Liner Palette in Metallic Hues.


I'm also getting my Birthday Gift from Sephora the Beautiful Eye Kit... I'm excited about it.

Re: Friends and Family Haul

Smiley Happy Wednesday I need to place my online order...I literally had a bin of all my stuff--I filled 2 baskets so they upgraded me to a bin hahah! Lots of sets! I also got a free Benefit Bag (super cute) because my store was having an event and a Bliss moisturizer, BE foundation and mini brush, and diorshow mascara deluxe samples. 


I had a great time getting some holiday shopping done Smiley Happy and I adore the value of sets! Coupled with the discount, I feel like I really did well! There's still another in store purchase I'll make before time is up too. And before you wonder how I use it all with just one face, the only things for me are the bag, samples, opi full moon and fresh lychee set. Smiley Happy some of the others I already  had and adore so i bought another as a gift or I bought as a gift because I have the products in it and love them! 

Re: Friends and Family Haul

Hi there.

I just wanted to say "Thanks" to all of you for posting this topic. I've shopped at Sephora on line and in person for years, became a beauty insider last year, and only heard about the Friends and Family HERE! I'm not sure why I didn't see it on FB or get an email, etc. But thanks to you, I was able to get the code and this is the AWESOME stuff I got:

Korres Brightening and Anti Aging Rose Collection

Bare Escentuals Brilliant Gold Beauty Duo

Urban Decay The Black Palette

Too Faced Enchanted Glamourland

Bare Escentuals RareMinerals Blemish Therapy

Tarte Cheek Stain in Tickled

Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss- Max-Surfer

This haul put me oer the top for my 500 point perk so I got the Bare Escentuals Mighty Fine collection.

SO excited about getting this I love BE!

I also love, love, love UD. SO if the Naked palette is back in stock before Nov 3rd guess who's shopping again???

Re: Friends and Family Haul

I put another order in (I'm bad, I know). Throw these in:

* Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer To Go - another gift for my mom, she loves that stuff

* Benefit Brow Zings in Light - after I got my eyebrows waxed on Sunday the Benefit rep put that stuff on me and oh-my-god did I love the defining effect. I drank the Kool Aid.

* Benefit Some Beauty to Love - such a good value! Had to take the opportunity to try Coralista

* Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Stray Dog and Vapor - always meant to pick those up but never got around to it.. might as well save some $$

* Urban Decay Urban Glow Highlighter in Brown Sugar - tried it on in the store and decided I needed a second color. Beautiful effect.

That puts me over $300 but I saved $70 in the process, and it's all stuff I would've bought anyway. Might as well stock up before moving away to grad school and becoming strapped for cash again.


mermadelove - I know what you mean, I only heard about F&F this year - read about it on a beauty blog (only just started reading those too). None of my friends had heard about it but I made sure to let them know Smiley Wink
