Calling this a “haul” is kind of a stretch, but humour me. I only bought 4 items!
My total came to $83.30 which is pretty low considering all of the anticipation for the VIB sale! I got:
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard (reg $36, sale price $30.60)
BITE Beauty Agave Lip Mask in Natural (reg $30, sale price $25.50)
Tarte Tartelette Tease (reg $25, sale price $21.25)
Sephora Collection Colorful Eyeshadow in #74 Walking In The Sand reg $13, this particular shade was on clearance for $7, then with the VIB sale discount, it came to $5.95
On my original shopping list, I was going to get the Sephora Luminizing drops but I worried it might be too blingy. Then I tried to think of another Sephora branded item I might want, so I looked in my stash. I found my 6 pan customizable Sephora eye shadow palette, which had one lone empty slot. 😮 You know what had to be done! This highlighting shade is the perfect complement in that palette which consists of matte and shimmer neutrals but all in medium to dark tones.
Essentially, I stuck to my shopping list on the 100% likelihood will buy and didn’t buy any of the “maybe” lists. 🙂 I did also order a couple of items on behalf of friends:
• Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Topaz
• Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector – hehe, this was a direct influence due to my review on this. 😆 #sorrynotsorry
I chose these 3 as my samples:
• MURAD Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture
• OMOROVICZA Thermal Cleansing Balm
• DR. DENNIS GROSS SKINCARE Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel
And now here’s a little rant! My Omorovicza sample was missing out of my order. The delivery person accidentally delivered my parcel to another suite in my condo. And that person opened up my Sephora order like it was theirs. When I received the box, it had been opened with a note that said the box was delivered to them in error. Well geez, if I accidentally received a parcel of stuff I didn’t order, I wouldn’t open the damn box! I was really looking forward to that Omorovicza cleansing balm sample, which at the prices Omorovicza charges, has a value of over $5 (I did the math!) I have no proof they swiped it but I’m going to blame them. 👿 I know which suite it was too.
So what did you get during VIB sale? Did you stick to your original shopping list, or did you go crazy? 😛
