Hi beauty enthusiasts! Nat here today!
It is a new year and with the Holiday season over, I am now able to dig into the new beauty products I hauled recently. The haul below is based only on beauty items and is cumulative from things I got on sale from Sephora after my birthday (end of Nov) and all the way to before Christmas and after, boxing week and Christmas presents. If you read my New Year Beauty Resolution post yesterday then you know that I will be using and reviewing what I currently own!
Before I get into that, I wanted to do a little haul to show you what new products I have gotten and products that could potentially show up in future posts.
Now let’s get into some beauty!!!
Sephora had their end of December sale. They added a bunch of items on their sale site and then reduced it to an additional 20% off for VIB Rouge first and then for everyone. Being a VIB Rouge, I was able to get a few things before they disappeared. There were so many things I wanted to grab but I had to limit myself (even if I still got a lot…)
One of the first things I got, yes I caved, the Formula X Paint the Town nailpolish kit. I was debating between that one and the Ciaté mini manor one since I got it last year and loved it, but since I do not own any Formula X and I LOVE mini polishes and it was a sale… well, it is now living with me 😀
Josie Maran Body Butter Duo – I got this because a full size is really expensive and again, it was on sale. However, I had to return it because I was allergic to some of the ingredients in the product. Boo 😦
I redeemed some points for the Deborah Lippmann glitter nail lacquer. Super cute!! It is actually on my nails as I type this!
Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette – I finally caved and got it. Then a couple days later, the Semi-Sweet palette came out lol. I am still on the 1st one!!! It wasn’t on sale but I have been wanting it for a while. Since I had the Sephora $25 off an order of $50 for VIB Rouge end of year gift, I used it on this palette! 🙂 so I guess I made it on sale! Let my brushes for ever smell like chocolate!
Living Proof Primed and Ready – Another sale item! wow I got a lot… great way to try out hair products. I basically got three items for a little bit over the price of one item.
Sale!! These were a good deal! Stila In the Light and In the Moment palettes! Been waiting to get these and I am glad I did!!! Couldn’t pass up the deal on these.
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush – when its on sale, you get it! it’s a shimmery nude.
Tarte Tres Chic Park Avenue Princess Contour Palette – I went back and forth on this one… but I heard so many good things from many vloggers and I am still looking for a great bronzer, so I got it, but on sale of course :). Also featured in Tati’s Best Products of 2014!
First Aid Beauty Dual Repair Face Cream. I have been wanted try FAB and this came on sale. It was funny when it came in over the holidays, the cream was frozen in the container… it spent a while in the mailbox lol.
Boxum Dealer’s Choice kit. For $13, I couldn’t pass it up! I love Buxom lipglosses and considering the price of one is normally $23… do I even have to explain??
Marc Jacobs Style Eye-Con No.7 Plush Shadow in The Starlet 204. Yes, yes I did… I caved. ❤ I got this a while ago but still adding it on this haul.
Finally, after returning a couple items, I decided to pick up the Becca Highlighter trio. – Worth it.
Christmas Gifts Haul!
The 1st thing I want to mention is that I did get a gift card for Sephora! Can you believe that I still haven’t spent it?? I am waiting to see what new spring things come out and since I don’t want to spend a lot on beauty for a few months, I want to keep the gift card to use towards new stuff!
Again I got spoiled, my hubby got me some goodies 😀
Boxum Lip Gloss Roulette – Love these 😀 I love that they are small, Iove them and so many colours.. gorgeous
Kat Von D Innerstellar Palette – When this came out right before Christmas I reluctantly did not purchase it but told myself I would purchase it if I didn’t get it for Christmas. I really didn’t expect it since it came out later in December and I was sure everyone would have finished their Christmas shopping. So it was a nice surprise when I opened this and my hubby got it for me!
Another big spoil item from my Hubby is the Tom Ford Velvet Orchid perfume. What a luxurious bottle and smell!
Missy and her Hubby also spoiled me!
Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick Kit – So happy they got me this!! These are mini versions of 9 of the Studded Kiss lipsticks which I already love. So, little story: the colour Hexagram was broken, the lipstick is not useable and I tried to get an exchange but it was sold out everywhere. So trust Missy to call customer service (she is SO good at this) and get a refund without returning the item lol. So to compensate, she ended up getting me a full-size one in Noble 🙂 thanks Missy!
Philosophy Snow Angel Kit. – This kit has:
– snow angel sweetly fallen snow shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath
– snow angel sweetly fallen snow body lotion
– snow angel sweetly fallen snow body polish
– snow angel sweetly fallen snow body spritz
Can’t wait to try these!!
MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural in Light Plus – a nice gift from my parents!! They changed the packaging from the clear top to a nice container with a mirror in it. Pretty fancy pants.
I also got three nice Bath and Body Works Bubble Baths from my parents!
My Grandma got me the Maybelline The Nudes palette. I thought this was super cute because she knows nothing of makeup so she asked the girl at Shoppers and he recommended this 🙂
Boxing Week Deal!
I got a gift card for Shoppers Drug Mart for Christmas and since Sheena loves this item so much, I knew I needed it… and when she sent me a picture of it on sale at Shoppers, I drove right there and got it! If you saw her December favs, you know what I am talking about.. Smashbox On the Rocks Palette! It was on sale for boxing week for $35 down from $50. I got that with my gift card and with the money I saved, I purchased the Maybelline “the smokes” palette. Two palettes for the price of one!
What goodies did you get this holiday season??? I wanna know!! I love hauls
