~ My First Little Haul from Sephora.com ~

Last week, a dear friend emailed me about a Sephora promotion for bare essentials mineral makeup. I didn't look at it because I don't need more makeup. But, then, I got curious over lunch break and took a look. Then, I saw their sampler sets and sales items and my inner raging shopoholic self took over. I did finally get it under control and only ordered sales items. Look at all that!

I just love their sampler sets. I like to try new things and they are also perfect for traveling. Here's what I got:
  • Sephora Favorites Skin Saviors Moisturizers Deluxe Sampler ($40 Value) - Skin Saviors Moisturizers Deluxe Sampler $15.00
  • Sephora Favorites Face Quenchers Moisturizers Deluxe Sampler ($100 Value) - Face Quenchers Moisturizers Deluxe Sampler $18.50
  • Sephora Favorites Get Pink'd Pink Lip Deluxe Sampler ($80 Value) - Get Pink'd Pink Lip Deluxe Sampler $18.50
  • Sample - Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow in Ruthless and Freakshow $0.00
  • Sample - Laura Mercier Foundation Primer - 0.1 oz $0.00
  • Sample - Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss in Doug $0.00
  • Sample - Fresh Soy Formula f21c Face Cleanser - .14 oz $0.00
  • Sample - Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Day Crème SPF 15 - 0.08 oz $0.00
  • Peter Thomas Roth Lashes to Die For The Mascara Deluxe Lab Sample $0.00

Shipped with tax was $55!!! Who could've resisted? To me, the best deal is getting the sampler sets that are on sale, buy enough for free shipping ($50), and check out retailmenot.com for coupon codes you can use. You can only use one and they have a variety to choose from, mostly just deluxe samples of different products. They also give you 5 free samples for every order. Supposedly, it's for a limited time so act now~!

Notice that I didn't get the Bare Essentials sample because I rather try the mascara. I am feeling a little obsessive about mascara lately. I was drooling over this LashStash Mascara Deluxe Sampler ($104 Value).

It has the following all for $39!
- 0.16 oz Hourglass Superficial Lash
- 0.09 oz Urban Decay Skyscraper Multi-Benefit Mascara
- 0.13 oz Korres Abyssinia Oil Volumizing and Strengthening Mascara
- 0.14 oz Benefit A Little Bit BADGal Lash Mascara
- 0.2 oz Smashbox Lash DNA
- 0.03 oz Laura Mercier Thickening and Building Mascara
- 0.07 oz Fresh Supernova
- 0.1 oz Sephora Lash Stretcher
- 0.14 oz Tarte 4 Day Stay Lash Stain
- 0.12 oz Cargo LashActivator

You know how you are supposed to throw away mascara after like a month for hygiene reasons? That's why I don't buy mascara. In a month, I would've used it twice. Maybe. But these little ones will be fun to use and put in the little purse/tight jeans pocket when I go out.

I will be doing mini reviews for the products I got later on this month. I am totally swamped with work and custom orders this week so no time to play barbie. Ooo yeah, I also joined the beauty insider club and they sent me an email offer for free lipgloss because it's my birthday. I can go to the store and get it. I have to go to the mall anyway to get a halloween costume so that's perfect! Happy Birthday to me :D
