BEAUTY HAULS : Christmas & New Year Sale9:41:00 PM
As promised, here is my last haul in 2013! Meanwhile, I actually haven't bought anything yet so I'm pretty curious myself to see what would be my first haul of 2014 ;p But here's a couple of my last purchases that I made during the Christmas and New Year sale last year :
I did 2 hauls from Luxola because they were having pretty good deals during the Christmas and New Year sale. Luxola always have a sale going on, or they always give discount codes that we can use with minimum purchase. I usually got Luxola discount codes from either Lola Box or the Vanity Trove box, but usually they are always around 20 - 25% with minimum purchase, so I never used it. But then I got a 35% discount code during their christmas sale that only lasted for several days. It's one of the biggest discount code I got for Luxola and If I'm not mistaken there was no minimum purchase too, so I head on over to the website and go straight to the Sigma brushes section:
I almost always use Luxola discount voucher to buy Sigma brushes because these brushes are pretty expensive and its not available locally yet, so any discount would be appreciated for sure. I was also curious with these brushes after trying the Real Techniques ones, I'm just curious to compare them ;p
So with the discount code I decided to splurge on the face brushes, because I've learned that a good face brush is the secret for a flawless face no matter what the foundation/base is. So I finally decided to get the Sigma Beauty Kabuki Brush set which include the F80 Flat Kabuki Brush and the F82 Round Kabuki Brush.
This comes as a set and I think it's really worth the price. The F80 brush is ideal for applying foundation, while the F82 brush is great for finishing a look with powder. This set originally costs IDR 434,500 (around $40) so with the 35% Off it was reduced to IDR 282,400 (around $25). So it was worth the discounted price.
My second Luxola haul is when they were having up to 70% discount offer during the New Year sale. Not every item had discounts but I found a couple of items that I wanted to buy at their 70% discount section. So I decided to do another haul ;p
I didn't get any extra/bonus from my first Luxola haul but I got quite a few of extra/bonuses on my second haul. So not all the items you see above are my hauls. Some of them are the extra/bonuses that I got from Luxola. And I was so excited with the amount of bonus that they sent me, I didn't really bought quite a lot of products but they did sent me some samples which I have been itching to try!
Here's what I actually got from the Luxola Sale section:Sleek Blush By 3 in Lace
Smith's Rosebud Salve in a tinSigma Beauty E25 Blending Brush
Nip+Fab Dry Leg FixLeaders Insolution Derma Soul Anti-Sebum Mask
The rest are freebies, which include (among others): Balance Me Pure Skin Face Wash and the Alpha H Liquid Gold which I've been dying to try out since I've read so many good things about these two brands from other beauty blogs.
So thank you so much to Luxola. If you want to see what they offer this time around, go click here: Luxola
I remember I still got a Perfect Beauty voucher that I haven't used and it was due on December 31st, so I rushed to the website and found these two beauties on my Perfect Beauty's wish list tab. I was into blushes during December so I splurged on these two blushes using my discount voucher that reduced the price a little bit.
Perfect Beauty have a few color options of the Sleek blushes on their webstore, but after a few days of browsing around I finally decided to get these two different shades. The left one with a brick red color is called Flushed which is said to be able to give a flushed cheek look with natural reddish shade on your cheek, just like you've been jogging in the cold. And the right one above is called Flamingo, with its deep pink shade which is said to be able to give a fresh pinkish cheek and suitable for most skin tones. Can't wait to try these out!
The Body Shop Sale:
From the Body Shop Christmas & New Year sale I only got two things which are two sets of body care (one of them is for present):
I got the Chocomania set and the White Musk Classic set. Both of these sets were on sale so I got a pretty good deal with this boxed set. Each set includes a shower gel, a body lotion, and a shower puff. The white musk set is definitely for yours truly a.k.a Me ;) Because TBS white musk is kind of my signature scent (or at least I think it is). And the chocomania set below is a present for my sis in law's birthday that falls near christmas. Now I only have to buy the body mist to complete my TBS white musk collection.
My usual supermarket haul didn't include a lot of products as it usually is. That's because I still have my stocks and didn't need much new products either.
I only get the Garnier Pure Active Multi-Action Toner because I wanted a new toner and this was on a sale rack, Enchanteur Perfumed Talc in Alluring ( I got this out of nostalgic feel because my mom used to have Enchanteur talcum powder when I was a kid) - and I also love the pretty vintage feel of the packaging. I also got a Viva Nail Polish Remover (I'm almost out of polish remover), Eskulin Fresh Cologne Princess Collection in Belle (definitely because of the princess-y packaging ;p), and the Vivelle Spa Systeme Collagen Face Mask.
Last but not least, the department store beauty haul. There was only one haul from the dept store beauty section which is this YSL Forever Youth Liberator Cleansing Foam. I asked the sales girl which of the YSL Youth Liberator product that I should try beside the serum, and she suggested this cleansing foam. I was also given a couple of the Forever Youth Liberator Serum samples to try out.
Well, I lied. Above is not the last of my haul. I still have one more haul which is the only fashion haul that I made during the christmas & new year sale. After a long time wanting to have a plaid shirt and never actually bought it, I finally found the right one (at least, I think it's the right one ;p) from Burberry. The size is right, the plaid pattern and color is also right (although I was originally wanting a red plaid, but this one will do), and the most important thing is: the price is right too because this was on discount ;p
That's it for my last hauls of 2013! If you want to follow my shopping diary please subscribe to this blog or just simply follow this blog. You can also add me on instagram where I usually also post my hauls and other daily snaps.
