MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

Hi ladies and gents,

 

In keeping with the haul tradition, I thought I'd go ahead and start one for March! I can't WAIT to see all your fun and colorful goodies for the upcoming Spring season Smiley Happy.

 

This post is welcome to all, and as lilahtov said, a haul is a haul no matter how small Smiley Happy.

 

 

Re: MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

Visited 3 different group of friends in one day, so didn't have the time, but one of them is ready to revamp her makeup collection so we promised to go to a great Sephora to do that nxt time. Pru is on the list. =)

Re: MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

Oh man, I would love to have that Stila set! I tried searching for it online, but it looks like it was a special holiday item that came and went.

Re: MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

Just a mini haul for me:

MAC 219 & 275 eye brushes

 

Stila collectible palettes in Dare To Bare & The Natural.  They are so darn cute! The 3rd palette I wanted was OOS.

 

A few NYX items, a blush, that was a fail, wrong color & a butter gloss, a nice soft pink, I like it.

 

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, I really don't wear liquid foundation, just have a few deluxe  samples, but thought I would try this out.  The reviews are mostly positive saying that while the sponge is not the same as the BB, (I don't have a BB), the outcome is just as good.  I used it today & it did a very nice job, I cleaned it very gently & it fell apart. GAH! 

 

I really need to be on a strict no buy, didn't need anything that I got...

 

Re: MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

OK, so it's not technically a March haul, more like a last couple days of February and didn't get to take a picture 'til now haul, but anyway....

 

I got some seriously good GWPs from Macy's which some people begged me to share with all of you. I bought the Lancome Dual Finish Powder makeup and they were giving away tons of stuff with a $35 purchase! So I got my choice of 1 of 2 makeup bags, a choice of 1 of 3 night creams, a choice of either 1 of 2 lipsticks OR 1 of 2 blushes, and a choice of 1 of 2 facial cleansers. I guess they were sweetening the deal or something last weekend, too, because this 3-piece set of samples of Genifique, Definicils Mascara, and a body wash popped into my cart as well. So, because I am cheap and hate to pay for shipping, I ordered a Too-Faced Milk Chocolate Bronzer I've been wanting to pop me over $50. Apparently, after I went over $50, I qualified for 1 of 3 different Dior mascara samples!

 

Score! The package with the freebies was actually bigger than the package with the TWO things I actually bought! And to top it off there were 3 random fragrance samples in the box, too! I'm still giddy! This kind of thing never happens to me!

Re: MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

OMG. GWP's make every purchase that much sweeter! That's a really cute bag Smiley Wink

Re: MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

You know, I think the promo is still going on... though I can't say for sure about the Genifique, Definicils and body wash. That addition was a total surprise for me!

Re: MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

I'm so tempted. Must fight temptation.

Re: MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

.... come over to the dark side......

Re: MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

Ok, so, I made good on my 'Going to Sephora This Weekend' little promise to spend my birthday gift cards and my haul for the total weekend now includes:

 

Make Up For Ever HD Cream Blush in 510. HOLY GORGEOUSNESS. I'm pale as pale can be and this raspberry-red, deep blush is so gorgeous on! And it blends so easily on top of foundations, even on top of powders. I'm so pleased with this purchase.

Nars Eyeshadow Duo in Rated R because I like being insane. I really wanted to get Kauai, but they were sold out at my store. I'll save it for Chic Week.

UD 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Vice. I try to tempt myself with Naked3, but ... honestly, every time I swatch it in person I'm not all that impressed. Maybe it's not for me.

 

Very happy right now overall! I swear, I spent an hour swatching all the deep red blushes in store and I ended up choosing MUFE HD Cream Blush in 510... Stila Convertible Color in Poppy was a close second, though. SIGH. Anyone else super pleased with their recent purchases?

Re: MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

I hope you post a pic of the 510 on! I'm really curious how it looks on fair skin. 

Re: MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

Yesterday I tried it on over my other makeup near the end of the day, so I don't have any good pics... And today I'm giving my skin a break during the snow day. Tomorrow I'll wear it and put up a good pic. I was so impressed with how natural it looked yesterday! My husband even told me it made me look like I just came in from the cold. Smiley Happy

Re: MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

Lari, sorry to enable, but you MUST. GET. KAUAI. It is so unbelievable. I love it.

 

You have me officially tempted on the MUFE blushes!!

Re: MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

So far in March for me was...

 

Target yesterday:

 

Boots No7 lipstick in Glam

Covergirl Smoochies in Tweet Me (I FINALLY FOUND AN UNOPENED ONE AFTER MONTHS OF SEARCHING)

Almay Liquid Lip Balm in Lilac Love - these things are the bomb!

Loreal Color Riche eyeshadow quad in What Happens in Vegas (I swear these are my new favorite shadows of ALL TIME!! They're gorgeous shades and very pigmented that stay all day with really, no fading from what I can tell!)

 

Today: Sephora

 

Urban Decay Naked 3 palette! WOOOHOOOO Can't wait to play! I don't really have any particularly rosy tone shadows in my collection so these will be a nice addition. (Plus who doesn't love some good ole' UD shadows?)

Re: MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

Here's my big haul that I technically made at the very end of last month, but I got these items today. Can I just say how excited I am when I get prestige beauty items at discount prices? I took advantage of the special Sephora was running last week for the 3 for $30 on the Bliss body butters, and also picked the Sephora + Pantone palette in Day Break that's on clearance. I'm really impressed with the colors, they're unique. The second package I got is from one of the shopping channels. I've never tried Borghese cosmetics before, but I got the kit at a "try me" price and it's returnable if I don't like it. I've tried a few of the items, and I'm very confident it's a keeper! The shadows and blush are buttery smooth and pigmented, and the lipsticks are moisturizing and packed with color. I've fallen in love with the blush, it's a beautiful peachy rose gold color, and I already see myself reaching for it on a regular basis.

 

Re: MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

So the mail gods must've been on my side today, since I received almost all of my orders that I just recently placed! I wasn't expecting them until the end of the week! Technically since they arrived today it counts for March, right Smiley Wink ??

Re: MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

Uwahh I'm totally jealous of those Guerlain shadows! And I also just got Mood Exposure! Lovely haul! Smiley Happy

Re: MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

Thank you! I am totally smitten with eBay. I found a good seller, and I was able to get 6 (1 more on the way) for roughly the price of 3 (full-priced). Hooray for good deals!

 

Mood Exposure is really great. I thought it would be too close to Chanel Accent, but they're distinct enough to own both. Love it!

Re: MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

You got the Guerlain shadows off eBay? Which seller? (PM if it's against TOS, but I'd like to add in Les Verts!) 

Re: MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

Just PM'ed you, tehprincessjenn! Smiley Happy

Re: MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

Just noticed these explanations. I got all excited too quickly. *puppy dog eyes* can you PM me the seller, too? Pretty please with a cherry on top?

Re: MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

I love ebay! That's amazing!!! Would you mind PMing me the seller as well? Smiley Happy

 

Ah, I haven't seen that one! I was worried it either wouldn't show up on me or would look too much like my Diffused Heat after all the complaints, but it's quite different and I think an even more natural flushed sort of look @u @ Hooray!

Re: MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

ohhh I wanted Sakura! It's OOS now on chanel.com Smiley Sad 

 

GREAT haul jenpred! I wish I could give you 100 hearts!

Re: MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

NOOOOOO I hope they bring it back! It's a really lovely shade. Why is all the good stuff LE? Smiley Sad

Re: MAGNIFICENT MARCH MADNESS HAULS!

I know! I'm annoyed, but Nordstroms has a nice one Fleur De Lotus but it's not as pink at sakura :/
