Hello! Be forewarned, this post is probably going to be really, really long. I have a lot of things to show and talk about; my desk area is getting cluttered and out of hand! No opening banter here, I want to get right to it! This is going to be a big collective haul over the last few weeks from the usual suspects: Sephora, Ulta, Target, MAC, and a few extras.
I'm going to start with my Sephora orders because I like starting with box shots!
As you can see, I placed two Sephora orders. I know I say this almost every time, but I'm so happy I'm a VIB Rouge and get free shipping! I placed two different orders since there were some bonus items I wanted to get and you can only use one promo per order.
For my first order, I got some samples like usual, with another bonus one!
For my promo item, I got a Fresh lip sampler set! I also got an extra deluxe sample for being a VIB Rouge, which is awesome. I'm not a big fan of Fresh lip products, especially the tinted lip balms since they taste/smell weird (they're a natural product) and the colors are kind of off, but I do really like the lip scrub so why not?
In order to get the Fresh lip set, you had to spend $35. I have a lot of single eyeshadows and blushes now, so I thought I'd pick up a Z-Palette!
Since the palette was only $28, I threw in some sale items to bring my order up to $35.
For my other Sephora order, I got three more samples...
For the promo item, Sephora was offering a deluxe sample trio of some Buxom lip products! Because I need more lip products...
I only had to buy one item to reach the $35 mark to get the promo and that was the Murad Acne Cleaning Solution!
...I also went to both the big Sephora and the Sephora in JCP. BUT, I didn't actually spend any money at either, so it's okay! At my big Sephora, I traded in my voucher from my Last Stash To Go kit and got...
At the Sephora in JCP, I ended up returning my Venus Lip Balm from the Sephora + Pantone Universe collection since it kind of smelt funny and it wasn't very stable in the tube (when I used it it would smoosh against the tube and get everywhere and it just wasn't worth it). I ended up getting another Deborah Lippmann sale nail polish and then the rest of my return credit on a gift card.
While I was at the mall, I also made a stop at the MAC counter in Macy's because I needed a lipstick from the Alluring Aquatic collection. Needed it. Just for the packaging.
I also got some stuff from Ulta! I keep stopping in there hopping that they will A. get the Nicole by OPI Roughles in stock and B. get the Zoya Summer collection in and to hide my disappointment that they don't have either I hit up the sale section.
Time for an abrupt jump! I got another $10 promo gift card from Kohl's, so I got some more clearance shirts. I got three this time since I needed to have a $10 minimum purchase to use my gift card.
Here's some random Target stuff! I don't have time for logical and well written transitions! I love going to Target and wandering around the beauty section looking for stuff on clearance.
These are Luster Shines and left to right is Lava, Firefly, and Scarab. There were a couple other shades, but I went with these three for now. ...I know I shouldn't but I might go back and grab the others. They are on clearance for...$2.30something I think, which is a steal since they're originally close to $8.
Here's a random pack of Pokemon cards I bought!
Continue with childish things, I also got two new Monster High dolls.
Finally, I got an e.l.f. brush at the dollar store.
And....that's everything! Hmm, this feels shorter than I expected. I think it's because I stacked some photos (I had over 60 this time!). Hopefully it wasn't too boring! Now I can finally clean up my desk.
Thanks for reading! <3
