We're well into the New Year now, and I think all the holiday craziness is finally on it's last legs. I think all the after Christmas sales have finally come to a close, which is sad because I like good deals, but also nice since that means smaller crowds of grouchy people. I've pretty much used all of my Christmas money (...there were things I was waiting to buy until I got it so a lot of it was already earmarked) though I still have some gift cards floating around. I wanted to share with you guys some of the things I ended up getting (though technically this is a "Part I" since I just had another round of retail therapy yesterday, but I'm going to do that separately); some of these deals are still available, though some unfortunately are not.
In this haul, I used some Christmas money, along with a couple gift cards. My parents' gave me a $25 gift card for both Sephora and Ulta. Ulta was (and still is!) having a big sale on nail polish PLUS they had a ton of new Nyx products in stock. Including the Wicked Lippies!
And then I got way too much nail polish.
...That's a lot of nail stuff. Like I said, I'm pretty sure this sale is still going on, so if you love nail polish, head out to your Ulta and see what's on sale!
And then I got some stuff from Sephora. Technically, I bought one of the things from Sephora before I got my stuff from Ulta, but that's because I ordered it online and it wasn't in my hands until later.
I'm pretty sure this set is all sold out, and the extra 20% off sale is over, but this was in the sale section once before, so it may still come back. For $24, if these are products you like or if you are interested in trying other Urban Decay eyeliners, I'd say get it. You get the two full sized liners that retail for $20 a piece, so right there you're saving a nice chunk of change. Plus, that bag is seriously cute.
Since I had about $5 left on my gift card, I went to my local Sephora to spend it. I intended to get one of the new Sea Glass Formula X polishes, but I ended up with something completely different.
For $48, you get twelve cleansing-related products (there are eleven products and a mini Boscia konjac sponge. It's adorable.), which is a pretty good deal. Last years Sephora Favorites skincare sets (if I remember correctly, one was "detox" themed and the other was more "cleansing" themed) were okay; they were about the same price, but you got fewer products in each bag. These are nicely sized this year; they all feel like travel-sizes and not just deluxe sample sizes.
And that's everything! At least for this post. I have more things, now, but I'll save that for another time.
Thanks for reading! <3
