That being said, I did make a few purchases. So I guess I technically failed my NoBuy, but I'm okay with that since I feel like I made good choices and I didn't completely blow things out of proportion. With discounts, coupons, points, etc, this whole haul was about $20. It's pretty little, but I did want to show you guys because otherwise I don't really have anything to talk about. Which is kind of sad, actually.
For this super little haul (haulette?) I ended up placing two orders with Sephora and buying two nail polishes in-store from Ulta. In the month of October, Sephora had a special going where you could play a mini match-making game and get prizes. I think you could try every day, but I wasn't very good at remembering to do it. There were three different types of prizes: a free deluxe-sized sample, 10%, or (and the best prize) 150 bonus points with any order. I ended up getting the 150 bonus points prize three times, though I wasn't able to get the code for the third time due to some annoying things with my web browser and human error. BUT. I was able to take advantage of the offer twice and, since I'm a VIB Rouge, I got free shipping so I bought the cheapest things I could.
For my second order, I used a couple hundred of my free points to get mascaras! Because I need more mascara. Except not really. But they were free and I had never tried them before.
For Sephora, I only spent $8 on both orders (plus some tax), got free shipping, 300 bonus points, and a bunch of samples. So, even though I was on a NoBuy, I think that's acceptable!
And then I got some Zoya nail polish from Ulta because I love Zoya nail polish. And I had a bunch of points to spend.
And that's my super-mini haulette! Not much, but that's okay! I'm very happy with the things I got and, like I said, I think it was worth "failing" my NoBuy to get them!
Thanks for reading! <3
