I did a little bit of damage last month, but better than usual! I am going to try to steer away from Limited Edition products this year...I hope! I picked up a few things last month that I have been interested in trying out for awhile now. Plus a few that I didn't necessarily know that I wanted to try.
I have lately been thinking I needed the Morphe Jaclyn Hill palette! Ulta ships to Canada now through Border Free. I thought I would give it a try and found a deal with the Real Techniques brushes, buy 2 get 1 free I think it was? I am always on the hunt for great eye blending brushes and I don't believe I have seen these 3 sets anywhere else. The one set has a winged liner guide so I was interested in trying that out. I will say that I wasn't able to get any points not use an Ultra coupons when I shipped to Canada which is a bummer. But I was able to get the buy 2 get 1 free for the brushes.
My sister went to see her son in Ohio at the beginning of February so I gave her a list of some things I was interested in and told her to pick me up a few things if she found them or surprise me! She surprised me with the Ribbon Curlers that I have been interested in trying but was having a hard time finding them around here. I have been interested in trying out a foundation from Neutrogena and guessed at the shade, I think I guessed right! The Real Techniques sponges I wanted to try out again, I did like the one I had before but it did fall apart quickly, hopefully they have fixed that problem. She surprised me also with the city powder, I have only ever heard great things about it but have never been able to find it. One thing I will say, if you don't like scents, swear far away from this powder.
In January I had heard that Zoya was having an add on Mystery box that was worth over $100 with any order over $30 USD. I haven't tried much from Zoya so I thought this would be a great way to hopefully get a few different things to try. I picked up 3 shades of polish, Normani, Brigitte and Leah(a Satin). The rest of the products you see were in the Mystery box. Not a bad deal for $39.10 CAD, and I wasn't hit with any more charges delivering to Canada.
A friend of mine was wanting me to take her to CosmoProf to get some gel polishes because she just got herself a light. I was a licensed Hairstylist for 15 years so I can go and buy stuff at cost, which is a huge savings! I was wandering around a little and saw the OPI set and have been interested in trying out the OPI Infinite Shine for awhile but even at my cost it was a tad higher than I like to spend! I saw this set that has the base, top and a beautiful greyed blue shade for under $11 CAD, of course I picked it up, I can't even get 1 bottle of the OPI for that price. I picked up a little glass dish for when I do nail art, I like to put acetone in it to clean brushes in-between.
So I finally bought Marc Jacobs! My Ebates cheque went into my PayPal account and I decided this time to spend it on something I would have not picked up easily on my own. I got the Marc Jacobs Eye-Conic eye palette in Glambition and it cost me nothing! Saw the Marc Jacobs Sugar & Cream set and figured I might need that to....
I haven't heard to much about the new Sephora Lip Stories and decided I wanted to try them out. I picked up the shade Tan Lines, a nice peachy nude! Imagine,...a nude.
So I think I picked up a few great things that I am definitely looking forward to trying out and reporting back to you on. Is there anything here that you think I should try out first? Or that interests you? Let me know.
