I have another haul for you guys! There's always so many great deals out there that I want to take advantage of...I do have to stop purchasing so much, though. I'm at a point of saturation with my makeup collection and am now considering doing a Project 10 Pan type of thing. We'll have to see, though. At the very least, I'm going to try and cut back my spending to only the items I "need" like foundation and concealer and limited edition stuff that I will probably die if I don't get.
That being said, let's get to the haul! I went to a bunch of different places and got a large variety of items, so hopefully this will be an interesting read.
I'm going to go in a little bit different of an order than I did in my video, mostly so I can open my post with a box shot. I don't know, but they make these posts feel so much more complete. It's weird, I know. Which means I'll start with the stuff I got in Sephora!
I made an online order and I got some things in store as well. Lately, I've been finding myself more inclined to order things from Ulta.com over Sephora.com since they offer a lot more gifts with purchase. With Sephora orders, you can usually only add one deluxe sample per $25+ order, though sometimes they have special "sets". With Ulta, you can get a ton of deluxe samples and gifts with purchase, all depending on which brands you purchase and how much you spend. I've gotten some pretty awesome gifts with purchases (see my hair care haul) and I'm always checking the site to see what's new. This time, Sephora had a special offer where you could pick three deluxe sized samples with any $25+ purchase, so, since I needed to pick up some more concealer anyways, I went for it!
Since my concealer was only $19 and I needed to hit $25+ to get the three deluxe samples, I grabbed some eyeshadow from the sale section.
And now for the whole point of this order: the three deluxe samples I got! You could choose any three samples you wanted from a selection of...ten? maybe, I can't remember. I was luckily and was able to get the extra three that I wanted!
For my in-store Sephora purchase, I went to my Sephora inside of JCPenney. I love going to the Sephora in JCP; they have a ton of stuff on sale (and super sale!) that they don't have at the big Sephora or even online. All of the best deals I've gotten on high end makeup has come from my Sephora inside JCP.
While I was at my mall, I also hit up Ulta (which is technically across the street but it's like in the same complex) and the MAC counter at Macy's!
I had a couple coupons I wanted to use, so at Ulta I picked up some interesting things!
Over the last year or so, I've been slowly and steadily increasing my MAC collection. I'm not a MAC fanatic, but I do really like their limited edition collections, especially when they have special edition packaging, since they feel like collectors items and I like collecting things! So, when I saw the Alluring Aquatic collection and the amazing packaging it had, I knew I had to get some things from it!
I was able to get an Extra Dimension Eye Shadow in Lorelei, which is the color I wanted! This is my first Extra Dimension Eye Shadow, and I have to say, I'm impressed! The depth of color you get is stunning! And seriously, this packaging is amazing. I'm sure you're seen/read a ton of reviews on this collection, but the fact that MAC went that extra mile by adding on the 3D water droplets really makes this collection special.
I also got some things at Target! One time while I was at checkout, the lady in front of me got a ton of those printed store coupons that she didn't want so she gave them to me and they had some nice deals! I had one for $3 off a $15+ clothing purchase and $4 off a $20+ beauty purchase! I also had a $1.00 off coupon for any Pantene product that I wanted to use as well. Just because. Coupons are addicting!
For my Pantene product, I went with the Ultimate 10 BB Cream.
I don't really have high hopes for this product, but it was the only thing that sounded interesting and I wanted to use my coupon. Time will tell if this is any good or not. If not, I'll just give it to my mom or something.
For my beauty purchases, I got some boring stuff like sunscreen and lotion that I won't bore you guys with here, but I did get a couple products on clearance from Covergirl!
Because I like buying things on sale, I also picked up a couple of the Hunger Games Glosstini nail polishes by Covergirl!
I made a few additional trips to Target where I got a couple other things!
I was on a bit of a beauty "quest" for this next item! It's available pretty much everywhere now, but at the time I couldn't find it anywhere, so when I spotted it at Target I was estatic.
Finally, I got a great deal on an OPI nail polish mini set from Marshalls.
And that's it for this haul! I'm really excited about this products (then again, when am I not excited about my hauls?) and look forward to giving them all a try!
Thanks for reading! <3
