Quick post on what I picked up in January, I may have been sick but that didn't stop me from shopping to try to feel better!
I actually placed the order for the UD - Troublemaker palette at the end of December but it didn't come in until January. It was on sale, and than there was the sale on sale promo for an additional 20% off, I paid $27.50 CAD for this palette! I do really like UD shadows and there were a few shades in this palette that I liked and didn't think I had in others...not to mention it came with the new Troublemaker mascara. I needed another mascara like I need another hole in my head, but I wanted to try it!
I know there is so much drama surrounding this palette, people either really hate it or like it, more on the hate side of things! I was going back and forth about this palette since it came out, I really like the muted/dirty/greyed out shades in this palette and have nothing like some of the shades. Again with the sale section Sephora! It was on sale for $44.00 CAD so I ordered it. Have to say I like it, I do have to be careful with which brushes I use, it does better with softer ones.
SDM had another bonus redemption! My sister and I put our points together and picked up a few things! I was so close to being able to redeem at the top tier. She gave me a few thousand points and got the Chanel cream bronzer! I picked up the Guerlain Lingerie de Peau foundation that I loved but couldn't fathom the $70 CAD price tag. A Dior 5 couleurs in 537 Touch an all matte neutral, I really wanted the full size of 647 Undress but of course it was sold out! I still had $15 left to spend so I picked up the Clinique bottom lash Mascara, I have used this before and liked it. I have to say that SDM-Beauty Boutique gives way better sized samples than Sephora! Those 2 on top of the box were ones I was able to add to my order! At Sephora those would have been deluxe samples and I may have been able to get 1 for free or spend 100 points for them.
I have been trying to organize my office and needed something to store lipsticks in so I went searching on Amazon. I found these ones for $3.99 CAD! Of course they weren't Prime, but for that price I was willing to wait a bit. I didn't end up having to wait long though, they came in 2 weeks after ordering. They each hold 24 lipsticks so heres hoping I can start organizing and using more of what I have instead of the same ones all the time.
I have been looking for the Wet n Wild brushes forever put have never been able to find them in stores. While I was looking at storage solutions I found this one as an add-on item for 0.99 CAD! I love crease brushes so added it to my order!
I ran out of the Ordinary high Spreadability Primer and was missing it so I went to the site, Sephora doesn't carry this one, to order a replacement. The threshold for free shipping was $25.00 CAD so I looked to see if anything else caught my eye. I have been waiting for Sephora to restock the Glycolic Acid toner to try, lucky for me it was in stock on the Ordinary. I picked up one for me and one for my sister.
I think I didn't do to badly shopping-wise in January! At least not in stuff that came in! I did place an order with Zoya, they had a good promo and I haven't tried much from them! How about yourself? Did you pick up anything good in January? Were you able to do one last bonus redemption before the Optimum program change? What did you pick up?!
