Hello! I bought more things! And I want to show you guys the things I bought! These haul posts are going to be pretty common this time of year; there are so many good deals out there that it's kind of hard to not buy anything. And yes, I know that's kind of sad, but what can you do?
This time around, I bought some things in actual stores, I got some things from bh Cosmetics, and I ordered some stuff from Sephora! ...I don't know why I was ever worried about making VIB Rouge or not. It's nice to have free shipping on everything, though. Otherwise this order probably would have never happened, so there's that. I'm hoping this doesn't get too long, but I have a lot more pictures than I thought I did, so we'll see.
Even though I started with the stuff I bought in-store in the video, I'm actually going to start with my Sephora order because it came in a box and I have a picture of the box and for some weird reason I like to use "full order in the box" pictures before my jump cuts. Don't judge me.
I wasn't really expecting to place another order with Sephora so soon, but I got an e-mail from them showing off the newest 500-point reward and I had to have it. I've never tried it, but I'm pretty sure that Sephora won't let you just order a reward, so I picked up a couple small things (very small things; I am very, very happy I have free shipping!).
In this order, I only bought two things, for a combined grand total of $8. I can't say enough how happy I am to have free shipping; there's no way I would have paid shipping on this order (I think it's like $7 when you actually have to pay).
And this is the other I paid money for, a Sephora by OPI crackle nail polish in the color "Blasted Black", which is just black.
And now for the reason why I placed this order in the first place...
Now, the most interesting part of this three-piece set, the bracelet!
Since I'm already talking about things I bought online, I'm going to continue the trend and talk about my order from bh Cosmetics next. I hadn't really heard about bh Cosmetics until xSparkage talked about the Galaxy Chic palette on Youtube (video here: http://youtu.be/97NQQAJIW1w ), but they sell pretty good quality makeup for dirt cheap. For the November 2013 ipsy bag, they gave out samples of the eyeshadows from the Galaxy Chic palette along with a promo code for 20% off, which I took advantage of. I didn't want to pay for shipping, and I didn't want to spend $50 on cheap makeup that I may not like, so I put off buying the palette for a while, until my mom decided that she wanted to order some things from bh Cosmetics. With the combination of her order and mine, we were able to get free shipping! I'm not going to show the things she bought since some of them were gifts, but I got the Galaxy Chic palette and the 3rd Edition 120-color eyeshadow palette.
So those are things I got online! Which means it's time for the things I got in actual stores from LUSH and Sigma! I went shopping with my mom at our big mall to get some things for Christmas (it's easier to get little spur of the moment stocking stuffer gifts when you're with the person who's going to give them to you. I know it sounds weird, but it's better than trying to describe some little $2 item to my mom and have her go out and try to find it. Plus, there's a lot of stuff that's in the big mall that my mom can't get at home) and I picked up some stuff for myself. Because I'm cool like that. Actually, I just wanted to take advantage of being able to go to the big mall; it's been hard since I started working "normal" Mon-Fri hours to find time when my husband and are off work together and the mall isn't crazy busy.
Now, in our big mall, we get a lot of unique stores. One such store that opened fairly recently is Sigma's! I've always wanted to go in, but there's never anyone in there and the shop people look so eager to talk to you that it's kind of intimidating for someone awkward like me. With my mom with me, I felt much better about going in and I finally decided to check it out. What I really wanted to see was Sigma's F80 Flat Kabuki brush since I've heard a lot of people talk about on Youtube (and I needed a better way to put on my liquid foundation than just my hands). My mom and I went in and were greeted by a very nice and very cute shopgirl. She was super friendly and helpful and made my first experience in Sigma's store a good one. I was a little unsure if I wanted to spend $21 on a brush, but after feeling how soft it was I knew I couldn't go home without it.
That's that for this haul! And now I can put everything away, whew! There's going to be at least one more haul before Christmas (...I already have everything and I even made a video about it, I just have to post it here) so if you like reading these, stay tuned! Exclamation points everywhere!
Thanks for reading! <3
