Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

Hello, beautiful BTers!

 

Thought I would keep up with the haul threads tradition and start one for May! I love seeing everyone's hauls -- small and large, beauty and non-beauty -- so do share what you've added to your collection this month! Smiley Happy

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

Such a generous SA! Smiley Happy Chanel ones should make note of it. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on the Guerlain cheek palette!

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

Your perles du Paradis are calling out to me. notcreative did warn me about the addiction when I got my first set of meteorites...

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

Wow great finds!! Hang on to that SA, she sounds like a gem! Enjoy your goodies Smiley Happy

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

How nice of her!

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

Oh wow! Every once in a while you get a juicy cherry out of life! 

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

Hit Ulta and stocked up on beauty tools (LOVE Real Techniques brushes) lip gloss and Mally cosmetics. The Mally lip shine and mascara were gifts with purchase, and the hair product was a free sample at check out. 

 

Mally primer and eyshadow - yep, I got yet another neutral palette. :-)

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

I'm all for neutral palettes, so I approve of this haul completely! Smiley Tongue How are Mally's powdered shadows, btw? I've never tried them before.

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

The colors are pretty, pigmented, and blend well. Really liking the palette so far!

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

I don't expect to be buying much this month. I refuse to go on a no-buy because it works like a diet with me- huge binges after.  However, I am at a place where I have all of the new goodies that I want, and I don't need anything. I'm in replenishment mode for awhile.

 

Yesterday I picked up the one item from NARS Summer that I wanted (Malacca eyeshadow single) from Nordstrom and a packet of Philosophy Purity Cleansing Wipes (necessary repurchase).

 

Unless I run out of something, my next purchases are probably at the Nordstrom Beauty Trend Show or a Jo Malone pre-order when the store gets the LE fragrance. I've already been to one Trend Show this season, so I don't expect a large haul. However, this store is having a crazypants GWP for Tom Ford with fragrance purchase and doing manis. So I had to sign up for the event....

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

Malacca looked really pretty, hope you like it! I definitely understand what you mean with the no-buy/binge cycle. I discovered that I also tend to spend a TON if I've refused to let myself buy in a long time. I just try to be conservative with purchasing instead of not letting myself buy at all Smiley Happy

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

I went on one successful No Buy... ehm... last July. And never again! I ended up overpurchasing before and after July! LOL

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

I placed an order from Bloomingdales online

Lancome Tonique Confort Comforting Rehydrating Toner

Lancome Tonique Radiance

Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Cream SPF 50+

and Shiseido Pureness Deep Cleansing Foam which hasn't arrived yet

I bought 4 products and received a bunch of free samples and GWP

Really generous Bloomindales Smiley Happy

I think I will go on a No-Buy for this month Smiley Very Happy

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

WHOAAA, how did you get so many samples???

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

Haha I don't know either Smiley Very Happy Shiseido and Lancome were GWP. I wasn't expecting other samples to come with my order Smiley Happy But I wouldn't say no to free samples Smiley Very Happy There is only one thing I can say Bloomingdales is really generous<3

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

I just learned about beauty shopping at department stores (beauty newbie here). Looks like I'll have to hit up a bloomie's!

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

I just started learning too! We are on the same boat Smiley Very Happy

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

Bloomingdale's is awesome with their samples! I got 5 samples from Chanel last time I ordered from them (and only ordered Lancome products), a couple were deluxe Smiley Happy

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

Holy GWPs and samples! Well done, well done! Smiley Happy

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

WOO!!! Samples galore Smiley Happy Smiley Happy

Highlighted

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

Perfume haul!!! I am usually very picky and selective about buying perfumes, so I'm a bit shocked I found two this month that I absolutely fell head over heels for! (I think my wallet is a bit shocked too Smiley Wink )

 

Directly from Jo Malone:

Nectarine Blossom & Honey

Deluxe samples of Red Roses and Grapefruit

Samples of Amber & Lavender and Lime Basil & Mandarin

 

I am dying to smell more of her line in stores!!

 

From Saks:

Aerin Lilac Path

Sample kit with each scent from the Aerin line: Ikat Jasmine, Gardenia Rattan, Amber Musk, Lilac Path and Evening Rose. These looked to be rollerballs in the promo picture, but they are actually spray samples, 2mL each (a lot bigger than your typical samples), and have a little gold cover over the sprays.

Large Tote Bag GWP- this was surprisingly large, sturdy and nice!

Deluxe/Full size GWP items- really pretty coral lipgloss (passion fruit) and lipstick (melon), 2x Sumptuous extreme mascara, another Ikat Jasmine, hydrating creme cleanser, re-nutriv creme, and softening lotion.

 

Saks seriously wowed me with their GWPs!

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

Ooooo Jo Malone - if you like the perfumes, you should also check out the home products (diffusers and candles) if you haven't already.  There are some scents that I like..but just not on me, so those go into the rooms.  Smiley Wink

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

I was just wishing that Cedardwood and Juniper came in a candle, it would be so perfect!

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

I've never had the best of luck with diffusers, do the Jo Malone ones work well?

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

OMG!! Way to start May with a Bang! You'll have to let me know what your favorite Jo Malone pairing is! Smiley Happy

Re: Marvelous May Hauls! "I came, I saw, I hauled."

I'm actually curious what YOUR favorite pairings are, spill the beans!! Smiley Happy
