I honestly think most of my posts over the last couple of weeks have been haul-based. It’s pretty shameful. There are a couple more to come too! I love reading about other girl’s hauls. It’s such a guilty pleasure, so I’m hoping you all feel the same way! I don’t normally order from Sephora online, but there was a really great promo code for getting mini sample of Benefit’s Dandelion Box Powder and matching lip gloss for all orders over $35 and from there it wasn’t hard to reach the $75 free shipping! *Ahem* I may have possibly exceeded it…
The first thing I wanted to pick up were the new sparkly Scentsational Six Fruit Scented Nail Lacquers ($29) from SOPI. At first sniff, they smell pretty good! The only thing I’m hoping with these is that the scent doesn’t disappear with a topcoat…it says on the back of the box not to use a topcoat, but my nails won’t last without one and I tend to get weird dents in my polish.
I took a bit of a risk with getting this Fresh Hesperides Grapefruit gift set ($48) because I didn’t know what “Hesperides” meant (I later learned that hesperides were nymphs in Greek mythology who took care of a very peaceful garden on the edge of the Earth) and I had never smelled this scent before. So far, I have liked almost every single scent that Fresh has come out with so I just dived in and got it! The gift set came with a full sized bottle of Hesperides Grapefruit and travel sizes of the shower gel and Seaberry Body Cream. Oh, and how is the scent? Fantastic! Hesperides Grapefruit is such an amazing scent for summer and a wonderful addition to my Fresh perfume family! So glad I took the risk!
Next up, is the Tarte Glambag ($35) which also happens to be my first Tarte purchase! This gift set contains: Emphaseyes Waterproof Amazonian Clay Shadow/ Liner, Smooth Operator Micronized Clay Finishing Powder, Natural Cheek Stain, Vitamin-Infused Lipgloss, Lights, Camera, Lashes! Clinically-Proven Natural Mascara and dual-ended lip and eye shadow brush. Everything looks so awesome!
Here is the mini sampler duo of the Dandelion Brightening Face Powder and Lip Gloss. So cute!
I also decided to redeem 100 of my Beauty Bank points to try out the Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm as it has sunscreen in it as well.
Seeing as how my birthday is in July, I also had to pick up my birthday gift! I kept seeing everyone else pick up the Fresh Sugar Kisses Mini Lip Duo and I have been patiently waiting to snag one of my own! I also picked up the Caudalie Beauty Elixer which I’ve heard some wonderful things about as well as Smith’s Strawberry Lip Balm which caught me right at checkout!
For the moment, I am revelling in my Sephora goodies! I went in-store to pick up my birthday gift, but I still feel shopping online is better because you get all these samples and there are always promo codes to use for travel sized items.
What do you guys think? Do you normally shop Sephora in-store or online?
