A necessary part of being a beauty addict, I mean beauty blogger is hauls.
It is so important to be able to buy new products to share with your readers for a couple of reasons.
One, sometimes others haven't heard of a product's release and you buying it gives it exposure. I can't count the number of times I never knew an item existed until I read someone's blog or watched someone's Youtube channel.
Two, with all of the technology available now days others can see a product someone else has bought. They can decide based on how it looks in pictures or the review given on it that it is worth spending their hard earned money on.
I honestly have always loved shopping and really don't need an excuse to haul, but now I look forward to sharing my purchases and opinions with others who shares my likes.
Onto the good stuff:
I haven't been in Sephora lately and just happened to be in the mall and decided that I would just go in and check it out. Well my first whim was to buy one palette, which became a couple more items. My Sephora trips whether online or in store never seem to be cheap. I am sure many of you can relate.
On display was the Sephora Color Anthology Palette. I love color and if I see something sparkly, let's just say I hear it calling my name. This palette is so versatile. It contains matte, shimmer, satin, glitter, and duochrome shadows. The majority of the shadows are shimmer though. The colors range from brights to neutrals. The packaging is sturdy and contains a good size mirror.
Swatches to follow in the next coming days :)
I mentioned in a previous post that for the last couple of years I have been collecting the Philosophy Holiday gift sets. The packaging got me right away. How cute is this adorable Gingerbread House box? The box alone is worth $42 in my opinion. What sealed the deal for me was that the body washes and lip glosses were on display and of course I had to smell them. They were divine and hence I decided the gift set was mine.
Sephora recently started carrying the full sized OCC Lip Tars. So yeah you guessed it I had to get one. I have never tried them and have been waiting forever to try one of them out. I got the shade in Grandma and yeah it's gorgeous. I am definitely adding more Lip Tars to my collection in the future. I can see what all of the hype is about.
Lastly while checking out I hit over 500 reward points and picked up the Laura Mercier Flawless Classics Set. It contains a Face Polish, Primer, Tinted Moisturizer, Setting Powder, Fan Brush, and a Lip Glace in Rose. I have been wanting to try Laura Mercier products and figured what better way than to try a bunch at once for free!
This concludes my lengthy haul. I am pretty sure it took longer to type this thing to buy these items ;) Do you own any of these items? If so, what are your thoughts? What have you hauled lately?
