Sephora Friends & Family Haul

I've been thinking and I really think I will be turning this blog into a lifestyle blog. As my header states, it should be a mish-mash of all sorts of topics. I don't blog often because there isn't much to share about my saving habits and they don't change very often. I think I will be posting a lot more about life, things I want, hobbies, my dog, etc. I hope I don't lose any of you as readers but I will still be posting financial things as well. I just want this place to be more interactive to show more of my personality.

Anyway-As you all know, Sephora is having a 20% friends and family event and if you need to buy make-up or skincare now is the time to do it since that stuff NEVER goes on sale!

Here's the list of stuff I HAULED. Literally HAULED into my online shopping cart in a frenzy.
  1. Clinique Acne Solutions Foaming Cleanser
  2. Clinique Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion (toner)
  3. Clinique Acne Solutions Clearing Moisturizer Oil Free
  4. Clinique Acne Solutions Oil-Control Cleansing Mask
  5. Bobbi Brown SPF 15 Tinted Moisturizer in Light
  6. Make Up Forever Duo Mat Powder Foundation in Light Beige
  7. Lancome Genifique set (came with their eye cream)
  8. Gucci Flora Eau Fraiche set (came with the lotion!)
FREE STUFF:)
Birthday Philosophy Vanilla Shampoo
Per-fekt Brow Perfection Gel in Caramel
Supergoop! SPF 35+ Save Face A.M. Moisturizer With Advanced UV Protection
Bliss Triple Oxygen + C Energizing Cream 


I got all this stuff for a total of $231 including 3-day UPS delivery. This Thursday is my birthday and my skin is looking horrible lately so I decided to splurge on the Clinique Acne Solutions skincare items as well as the Lancome Genifique. I am truly excited for all of these products. Every time I go to the mall I douse myself with Gucci Flora Eau Fraiche and I have been dying for it for ages. I also haven't found a good foundation and I'm not one for heavy coverage so I thought I'd try out the tinted moisturizer and the duo mat powder. I usually don't buy expensive make-up and just stick to drugstore items so hopefully I will be satisfied. I was also looking at the Brazilian peels but I couldn't justify the $78 price for 4 applications. I know it is much cheaper than a facial at a spa but maybe I will ask for a sample another time to try it out first.

The great part about Sephora is their return policy. If I got the wrong shades for my skin I can exchange them easily. No questions asked! My skin is pretty easy to match though since I have never had a problem. Hopefully the swatches I saw online were accurate enough.

What did everyone else pick up at Sephora?!

That is an awesome haul! Sephora really does reward their loyal customers. I don't plan to hit up this sale but as an amazing beauty find I was able to score some 37 cent nail polishes in the 90% off bin at CVS today :)

Almost all the time I think it truly rocks to be a dude. I have absolutely no idea what any of that stuff is, I don't even know what Sephora is except through mention by you and a few other female bloggers.

Lifestyle blog is fine by me. I'm here till the end. I enjoy all of your stuff even the ones like today where I just read in amazement at the stuff you buy. It doesn't seem like stuff you are likely to return but I got a good laugh when you mentioned the return policy. You just can't help it lol. Your birthday is coming up so make sure you enjoy the entire week and it seems like you are off to a good start with this haul.

What a wonderful selection! You'll be loving that delivery!
I wish we had Sephora here but pretty sure we don't up north. That is a fab image too.
Love your blog name and fun ideas!
