With my 29th birthday quickly approaching, I’ve been a bit more into skincare lately. And since I was starting to run low on my most favorite natural-ish cleanser of all time (the Michael Todd Honey and Oat Gentle Daily Cleanser $23) I figured visiting their website would be a great place to start.
And at $85, this 5 piece skincare regimen for normal to combination skin was already a great deal. But at at 40% off it was an absolute no-brainer. I just got my order yesterday and they even tossed in a full sized bonus product; I can’t wait to dig in!
Is anyone surprised that I picked up the Chocolate Chip? I mean… it’s Too Faced… it’s all matte… and it’s a rendition of their most loved shades in the original Chocolate Bar. Duh.
The palette will launch again on December 14th so mark your calendars! I was pleasantly surprised to see they have priced it at $26 and not their typical $36 for smaller palettes. Be warned though… it’s quite tiny.
An then there was TheBalm who luanched a new palette this past September for $39.50. It’s called “TheBalm Appetit.” As always, the puns are hilarious! Read the shadow names if you don’t believe me. I mean “Mac Enchese!?” Too cute!
Anyways, I passed on it originally because with all of the holiday launches I just didn’t have the time to test and review another palette, but TheBalm is so generous with their sales (50% off) that I knew it would be now or never.
Someone recently asked me why I never review luxury beauty products on my channel. As most of you know, I like to buy beauty products that aren’t tested on animals and unfortunately most luxury brands either do test or they sale their products in countries where testing is required by law, so I don’t shop from them. But let’s be honest… even if they didn’t, I don’t review luxury beauty because I’m cheap, haha!
If you don’t use Ebates, you’re seriously missing out. I would have stopped shopping here but I was able to get my Ebates rebate in the form of an Ulta gift card + 10% extra of what I’d earned! So I had nearly $100 of free money to spend! Here’s what I did with it:
And I may not like lipgloss, but I sure has heck like FREE lipgloss! Ulta was running a special where if you spent $40 or more on BareMinerals products you’d receive two of their new Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss Iridescent Topcoats in the shades “Enchantress” (on the left) and “Illusionist” (on the right). At $18 each, that’s a $36 value for frizzle.
Yeah, I said it. It’s been a weird morning.
This one was a surprise, and my eyes all but bugged out of my head when I saw it. For just $25 (regularly $42) I was able to scoop up the Lorac Unzipped Gold palette! I’ve been wanting this one so I can compare it to the original Unzipped palette so I’m pretty excited for it.
Lastly I picked up the It Cosmetics Eye Lift in a Tube for pretty much the exact same reason I needed all the skincare (I’m getting old). It’s regularly $29, but it was half off (which seems to be my happy place when it comes to sale prices). Looking back on it now, I’m feeling a bit duped as this is basically just a concealer… but it’s better to be duped at 50% off than full price! Am I right, or am I right!?
What are some of your recent purchases!?
