Little Bit of a Haul...

As you may have figured out, I have been getting back into makeup a lot lately. I am a photographer and would love to be able to do my client's makeup on a shoot if I need to. Also, I think makeup is such a simple way to make yourself feel beautiful. So, I have had a little bit of a makeup haul this weekend. Now I have to stop spending money lol but I will share what I purchased.

This is kind of like having the Urban Decay Naked Palette 1 AND 2 without spending $104!
I had a 20% off coupon, plus $10 in Birchbox Reward Points (you get these if you are a member of Birchbox... Birchbox is a monthly sample beauty and lifestyle box. If you subscribe for $10, you get 4-6 deluxe samples and sometimes full size products to try out. You earn points by reviewing the products or making purchases, and even by referring others. If you would like to join, please use my link so we both get points!) I had free shipping, so my total was only $17.20. About half price! Woot!!

This already shipped on Friday so I expect it to get here sometime this coming week!

Since I got my Target box and it had a $3 off $15 beauty purchase coupon, we decided to go to Target and see what we could fine. (Hubs loves shopping as much as I do, so we had a really fun day out!) Here is what I purchased:

Apotheke:M Coconut Jasmine After Bath Tonic: This stuff smells amazing!!!! 
Regular price: $8.99, on clearance for $6.28

Pixi Beauty Blush in No. 4 Rosy Rouge: I just thought this was a really pretty color and needed some new blush.  Regular price: $16.00, on clearance for $8.00. 

Pacifica Color Quench Lip Tint in Guava Berry: I really wanted to try out something Pacifica since I didn't get any in my Ipsy bag lol This is regularly $6.99, on clearance for $3.48.

Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream: Yes, more of this! LOL I had a coupon for $2.00 off in my Birchbox, so I used it to buy a 2 oz size. $3.00 - coupon = $1.00.

Then I had a couple coupons that made things free...

Pond's Luminous Clean Wet Cleansing Towelettes: pack of 5. These were $1.00. Coupon for $1.00 off = FREE.

Suave Naturals Refreshing Waterfall Mist Shampoo: Nothing special, just shampoo. I don't generally use this brand, but X and hubs do. $1.00 with $1.00 off coupon = FREE.

Total before sales/coupons: $36.98
Total after sales: $22.76
Minus coupons: $15.76 + tax = $17.09
I had a $5.00 gift card for using the Mango Health app to remind me to take my meds.
Grand total: $12.09 for $36.98 worth of products. Not bad!:)

Last, but certainly not least, was our trip to Sephora! We weren't planning to purchase anything until we saw this! This is Kat Von D's Starry Eye Palette. The tag on the front says $230 US Value (of course, we know how THAT goes lol) with a price of $49.00. [This is being sold for $59.00 plus shipping on Amazon right now.] It was marked down to $23 at Sephora! Um, yes, please!! :)

I will probably end up reviewing it on here at some point. I just think it is beautiful! The colors are so pretty and the packaging is top notch. It comes with 4 eyeshadow trios and 2 lip products. I can't wait to use it!

I did also get some clothes at our local thrift shop this weekend too. Just t-shirts mostly, but I LOVE thrifting! I hate paying full price for clothing! Quick list of what I got:

Lucky Brand Speed Shop t-shirt: $2.
Lucky Brand Nashville t-shirt: $2.
Red Express shirt with pockets: $3.
Venezia dressy red sleeveless shirt: $3.
American Eagle grey shirt with Eagle: $2.
Forever21 Union Jack crop top: $3. 
Old Navy black spaghetti strap tank: $2.
And last, it's just Faded Glory, but I got a sleeveless men's shirt that has 2 thumbs and says "This Guy Loves America!" This will be my 4th of July shirt! LOL

Ok, not happy that the weekend is almost over. Not ready for Monday at all!!
