Forgot to mention the Urban Decay Naked Cyber Eyeshadow Palette  This is right there at the top of  my list! ❤️ The duochromes in this palette look so pretty although the swatches didn’t appear too great. I feel that it’s going to work so much better on the eyes. Sometimes you just can’t tell with an arm swatch. 
I’ve never really cared about the other neutral UD naked palettes  but I’m really excited about this one and I adored Naked Wild West. 

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

What a bummer about your palette, @StellaBG 😞

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

@StellaBG I have heard others PMG palettes arriving broken with the same green shade. I ordered mine from PMG direct and am hoping it comes in tact. 

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

Thanks to your post @StellaBG , I moved numerous items from my cart to pick up in store option.

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

You’re so lucky to have a store nearby to use that option @Loretta55  ❤️

Although my debit card appreciates the distance between my house and the nearest Sephora (approx 50 miles away) 🤣😂

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

Thanks to living in a NYC bedroom community @StellaBG , I have multiple options. I realize that my wallet is not happy with that.

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

 I've been waiting so long! Bwahaha! I'm hoping that's still good on Chanel. Also a bit of lipstick. When will Kilian and Aerin samplers come back in stock? Thanks!

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

I just purchased quite a lot (and re-rouged) during the F&F sale, but I know there's a few small restocks that I'll need to pick up.  Here's what I just purchased:

 

Aquis Waffle Luxe Hair Turban - giving it a try.

Hourglass Arch Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel Soft Brunette - it appears they may be discontinuing the Tom Ford Fiber Brow Gel? Everything but Chestnut is sold out everywhere.  Going to try this instead.

Kérastase Blond Absolu Anti-Brass Purple Shampoo 8.5 oz/ 250 mL - restock.

SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence Serum 1.6 oz - a restock that I use off and on.

 

For fun, because I went all in, I guess:

TOM FORD Lip Color Lipstick Forbidden Pink 

TOM FORD Gloss Luxe Lip Gloss 22 Sunrise Pink 

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

Yay you deserve it @curlychiquita ! 🎉 I’m anxious to hear about the eyebrow stuff. I forgot about that and want to try it sometime! Next sale I guess! 

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

@curlychiquita @I do love those hair turbans! I wish they made full size towels lol 

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

I found that DevaCurl DEVATOWEL™ Anti-Frizz Microfiber Towel dries my hair quickest @Kim888 @curlychiquita . I still like your option though.

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

Thanks, @Loretta55, that's good to know for next time!

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

I keep going back to the DevaCurl DevaTwist Anti-Frizz Microfiber Towel @curlychiquita . I really do notice a difference in the air dry time.

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

@Loretta55 I didn’t know there was a deva curl option with the button! That’s the one thing I really liked on the Aquis ones! 

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

I tagged the wrong product @Kim888, it is DevaCurl DEVATOWEL™ Anti-Frizz Microfiber Towel . It really does help shave off dry time when air drying. I rewatched some defusing videos because I have not defused my hair in about 6 months.

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

I’m patiently waiting to stock up on Estée Lauder Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex Serum 3.9 oz/ 11... -the 2-pack!! My skin LOVES this!

 

I’m dying to try Danessa Myricks Beauty Balm Contour Deep 3 I wish Sephora would carry her other ColorFix Nude pigments because they are great!

 

Freck Beauty Cactus Water Cleansing Lactic Acid Toner 6.5 oz/ 192 mL Is this more like The Ordinary acid toner or Biologique Recherche? 

Supergoop! Mineral Mattescreen Sunscreen SPF 40 PA+++ 1.5 oz/ 45 mL I am ready to try some Supergoop after hearing a great many things! 

Can’t forget Shiseido Facial Cotton 40 sheets because they are THE best!

 

I wanted to nab Armani Beauty My Way Eau de Parfum but my Frederic Malle and Le Labo purchases have tied me up for the year as far as fragrances go 

 

Let’s normalize pampering yourself! 

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

Yes, love those Shiseido cottons, @maligNANCY! It's a great time to stock up on those. 

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

I just made a large order of mostly "useful" products, so maybe I'll have a little fun this sale.

 

Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter 

In Vanilla Bean to kind of match the Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm Vanilla  that should arrive tomorrow.

Natasha Denona Glam Eyeshadow Palette 

#ysl touche eclat all over brightening pen

#ysl rouge pur couture beige antonym

#ysl rouge pur couture slim matte bare burgundy

Bite Beauty Power Move Hydrating Soft Matte Lipstick Pluot 

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

That Glam palette is gorgeous and such a breeze to use, @Ispend2much6. It is the first palette I have purchased in awhile where I can use every pan. I hope you love it!

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

So far, only a few potential buys are on my holiday sale list. 
 
New-to-me things: 
 
 
Restocks: 
Can't tag either of these products for some reason, so I'll direct-link them. 
 
 
If Sephora gets these in stock during the sale: 
 
 
"What, no lipsticks?!" 😂 Yeah, I've overdone lipstick purchases this year. I mean, I overdo it every year, but this year I gotta put the brakes on myself. Doesn't mean I'm not tempted by any, though! 

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

Sriracha Rose sounds like a great combo, @WinglessOne. So does Velvet Persimmon, as a matter of fact they all do😂
