Finally, I’m posting about my Sephora VIB sale haul! I had early access so I was able to start hauling on Nov 3rd. After the first window of shopping, this is what I ordered:
As mentioned in my shopping list post, I really did not need many things. The ONE item that I really wanted, the Surratt Beauty Artistique Cheek Brush, became out of stock right when the sale started on the Friday!!! I was so annoyed! 😡
July was my “Low-Buy” month which coincided with my birthday month (it was no accident, I orchestrated it so that I was able to haul for my birthday 😉 ), so the floodgates were open and I especially went to town with online orders. Here are the 3 online retailers I purchased from:
Makeup Geek, Beauty Bay, and Glossier! It was my first time ordering from Makeup Geek and Glossier. 🙂 For reference, I live in Toronto, Canada and costs will be stated in Canadian dollars (CAD) unless otherwise noted. As an “international” customer from most online sources, it’s always a challenge when it comes to shipping time and costs from a Canadian perspective – here’s what I bought and my experience.
It’s NOT my birthday yet, but neither Joyce nor myself could wait to post this, so we’re showing our swap a week and one day before our actual birthdays. 😉 Yes, Joyce of Local Girl Foreign Land and I share a birthday! It’s next Tuesday July 11th! 😀 Here’s a glimpse at what Joyce sent:
😍 I’m so excited to dig into everything! Let’s have a closer look:
In my “final” Hauluary post, I mentioned that I was waiting for a couple more shipments – this is one of them! In mid-January, I heard about TheBalm being on HauteLook for 50% off from Kaily – I was both excited and a little bit apprehensive. I’ve contemplated for years about ordering makeup off HauteLook since they hold such amazing sales, but living in Canada often adds a whole layer of complexity – not to mention expense – when it comes to ordering from US-based sites. So how was my first HauteLook experience from a Canadian perspective?
