Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Hi! Today I learned never to use a Gift Card at the Sephora at 42 and Madison in New York! Saleswoman palmed my $50 card and used an unused blank Gift Card which had $0 on it for my transaction 

 

This is petty larceny and when I reported it to the Manager, Amy, she accused me of trying to reuse the Gift Card. She said it had been redeemed on 11/28/2021, and when she checked my Beauty Awards account, it showed my last transaction was 10/23/2021. She then doubled down on her accusation of me - despite partially proving my case.

 

Avoid this location and prevent being robbed as I was!

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Hey there!

 

For me this holiday season, I purchased a good amount of skincare products from the brand Kiehls. I’ve never tried the brand before, but I’ve heard many wonderful things about the brand. I am acne prone with oily skin and I really just look for more gentle, clean products that aren’t stripping to my skin. My lips get very dry around this time of month so I also repurchased my favorite lip mask which is the laneige lip mask. It helps my lips to stay hydrated and soft through these colder months. I would recommend trying it out if you haven’t already.

I was just wondering how long the promo for the bag with the trial sizes going on for?

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Hi @ellicit,

 

The sample bag will be available while supplies last!

 

Always,
Danee

I was very excited for this sale! I first restocked on Caudalie Grape Water 7.1 oz/ 200 mL and Selfless by Hyram Centella & Green Tea Hydrating Gel Cleanser 5 oz/ 150 mL because I was running out of them! I also got my mom First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Niacinamide Brightening Eye Cream 0.5 oz/ 15 mL and #Pat McGrath LABS Love and Lust: Gloss Duo. Additionally, I got my niece MAKEUP BY MARIO Master Mattes™ Pro Lip Palette for her to try different mixes since she’s a fan of art. 

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

I'm not sure I got anything that I originally planned on! Just a bunch of moisturizers with a perfume and body mist.

I did get the Augustinus Bader Mini The Rich Cream with TFC8® Face Moisturizer 0.5 oz/ 15 mL . I tried this in the Luxe box and some old skin damage from a chemical peel was filling back in. I was using in combo with another product so I am hoping this AB will do the repair fill without the Algenist serum added in. Because the serum is expensive too.

 

I saw the JLo Beauty That Holiday Glow Hydrate + Brighten Duo # on sale so I picked that up even though I had a moisture set.

 

Nearly forgot Herbivore Mini True Blue Skin Clarifying Duo. So glad this had been kept in stock again. This clears up any little breakouts or bumps.

 

I got Ellis Brooklyn RAVEN Eau de Parfum 1.7 oz/ 50 mL and #Sol de Janeiro Anitta x Sol de Janeiro Perfume Mist 3 oz/ 90 mL Mist  No Chanel. Believe me, I'm surprised too!

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Realized I haven't bought foundation or tinted moisturizer since 2018-2019 since I haven't used them while wearing masks, so I made a last day of the sale purchase to replace my old products! 

 

NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer  Hourglass Vanish™ Seamless Finish Foundation Stick Shell 

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

I did buy this on Friday, but it is now back in stock. If anyone is having any fomo 😍

 

Natasha Denona Mini Metropolis Palette & Brush Set

@Buootiful Gorgeous palette!

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@Darkmonks Tata Harper make up remover is one my favorite splurges for cleansers! Enjoy!

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Went back for another round but this may not be it @TeamBIC :

Danessa Myricks Beauty Twin Flames Liquid Eyeshadow Soulmate OLEHENRIKSEN Find Your Balance™ Oil Control Cleanser 2 oz/ 60 mL (for the hubby) HUDA BEAUTY Rose Quartz Eyeshadow Palette (can't remember if I mentioned this one or not).

I think I have one more go around that I'll do. I was hoping that the new quads from Pat Mcgrath would drop and some things would come back in stock. Fingers crossed this happens.

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

The Danessa Myricks eyeshadow looks like it will be stunning, @niki172!

Re: Holiday Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@curlychiquita I watched a lot of youtube and IG tutorials and the shift on this one is amazing!
