I have a haul post for you guys! My hauls have been a bit sporadic since a lot of the things I've been purchasing lately have been online from companies that take a little bit longer to ship things out (they explicitly state that, so it's not unexpected or anything), but good things come to those who wait! I did get a few orders this week and then I went out to take advantage of some Labor Day sales, so I have a semi-big sale-themed haul for you guys.
Right now (at least, as I am writing this; I can't promise these deals will be around while you're reading this), Sephora has a ton of stuff in the sale section on their website! They're calling it the "End of Summer" sale, which is depressing, but, yay, sales! There were a few things I wanted that I missed out on (sometimes, I think depending on when I last cleared my cache or cookies or something, there will be things in the sale section that are actually completely out of stock. I always hold my breath a little when I click on something I really want and wait for the page to load), but I was able to snag some Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics stuff. I really like OCC as a brand, though, up until this point, I had only tried their Lip Tars.
The first order I placed was kind of on impulse. I mostly just wanted to make sure I hit $25 worth of stuff so I could get a bonus deluxe-sized sample.
The main item I wanted to get in this order was an OCC Lip Tar and nail polish duo; they had six different sets of matching colors of lip tar and nail polish for $15 each. I wanted to try an OCC nail polish and, since they retail for $10 each normally, it was like getting a full size lip tar for $5! I debated for a bit over which set to get, and I eventually decided on the Anime set.
And then I threw in a few other things to get my total up to $25.
I got another Sephora eyeshadow because I need more. Obviously. I actually had one pan open in the palettes I have, and since I wanted this color before but couldn't get it since it went out of stock, I snagged it while I could.
For my second order, I got some more samples (though, again, I think these might have been the samples from my first order):
Because I'm a makeup addict, I also got some stuff from my actual Sephora! I went to our mall in order to see what kinds of Labor Day deals were going on.
This wasn't on sale, but it was in the travel/impulse section and it was too cute/quirky to not get!
While at the mall, I also stopped by Forever 21! I love when they have "half off of half off" sales and, while they didn't have that deal going on, they did have a "buy one get one free" deal on all sale products. If you bought two things that were close in price, you're basically getting the "half off of half off" deal so I checked it out. They had a lot of the same stuff they had last time, but then I found this:
On a different trip, I got some more candles! I really do think Bath and Body Works candles are the best large candles that are readily available and, when they have their 2 for $22.50 sale I have to stop in and see if there are any new scents. Since I also had another $10 off a $30+ purchase, I basically got three candles for the price of one. And I can't pass that up. I got some interesting scents this time:
And then now for the random left overs!
And then from Target I got a Rimmel mascara on sale:
It's pretty light, so I'm hoping it won't look too unnatural (but my eye area is so shadow that, sometimes, unnatural looking is a good thing). I also thought it was interesting that it says not to use it in your lip area. It's not as useful as my NYX Wonder Pencil (which can be used for highlighting/brightening everywhere on your face) in that case, but we'll see how well it performs as an eye brightener.
And that's it for this mostly sale haul! I hope it wasn't too long and that, if you're interested in anything I bought, that you're able to find a good deal on it, too!
Thanks for reading! <3
