Yeah, another haul. So sue me.

There were such good sales!
 I finally got a Clarisonic Mia 2 since Sephora came out with a Josie Maran Kit.I will do a separate post in a bit about the purchasing experience soon.
 CHINA GLAZE FOR $1.65 AT SALLY BEAUTY! I had a coupon for $5 off as well :) From left to right (I think...I am doing this several hours after I took the picture, and the colors are quite similar) Flirty Tankini, Hang-ten Toes, Love's a Beach, Pink Plumeria
 Adventure Red-y, I'm Not Lion, Purr-fect Plum, Rose Among Thorns (Neon) The last one doesn't have any printing on the bottle, but it was the only one I could find...

September 2012 Birchbox!

So I finally got my September Birchbox and I must say I am very happy with it. When I looked at the preview, I was a bit underwhelmed, but once I opened the actual box I was very happy.

  • Fall Lookbook 
  • Twirl by Kate Spade perfume sample: THIS SAMPLE HAS A SPRAY PUMP!! Woo hoo!
  • Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator: yay for face wash samples! I actually use skincare and whatnot more than the makeup samples I get, since I don't really wear makeup every day.
  • Mighty Leaf Tea: There are 3 tea bags in here, each a different flavor. I like that, especially since one is vanilla :)
  • La Fresh Nail Polish Remover Acetone-Free Fresh Tuscan Orange scent: I already used this and ONE pad got all ten fingers worth of nail polish off. These actually smell good. I'm very impressed and considering purchasing these when I use my BB points.
  • Jouer Matte Moisture Tint in Linen: Meh. This is really orange and apparently not as light as I am. 
  • Color Club polish in Tweet Me: Nice formula, but I'm not digging the color. It is almost like a combination of OPI Fiercely Fiona and OPI Who the Shrek are You?
Like I said, I am very happy with this box! It was a nice surprise after watching the Endeavor fly over at the top of a really, really hot parking structure!

Bath and Body Works/Target haul...

It is so easy to spend money when you have coupons...

  • EOS special edition Alice in Wonderland lip balm set: I finally found this at my Target! There are watermelon, blueberry and vanilla flavors which you can't get individually.
  • Pond's Luminous Clean towelettes: I needed some more and I wanted to try these ones out
  • Wallflower bulbs from Bath and Body Works: Moonlight Path, Paris Amour, Farmstand Apple, Eucalyptus Mint, Leaves
  • Scentportable refills: Fresh Cotton, Cranberry Woods, Eucalyptus Mint, Farmstand Apple, Island Margarita
  • Light up Wallflower Starter
  • Cashmere Glow lotion mini (free with coupon!)
  • Squirrel Scentportable holder
I only have "winter" scents left for my Wallflower and I wanted some fresher, lighter scents as it is still pretty hot here in Southern California.

Small Sally Beauty Haul

My Sally Beauty club card renews in of course I had to go renew it and use my 15% + free item coupon!!! I don't need anything there but I want so much...

  • ORLY Bubbly Bombshell because who doesn't need more fabulous pink glitter?
  • ORLY Sweet Peacock because some girl in one of my anthro classes has a metallic blue polish I've been eyeing for a bit. This looks nothing like it, as hers looks more like Essie's Blue Rhapsody, but this one is metallic...and good enough?
  • ion inspired by nature Nourishing Oil Treatment because it was on clearance and I've been getting into hair products lately and this was a good way to try a hair oil.
  • ion Moisture Solutions Miracle Leave-In Conditioner because it was free and I've been wanting a leave-in for a while now.
Less than $17 for these four items and the card renewal, plus I got a $5 off coupon for next time :) I'm thinking I "need" one of the new duochrome China Glaze polishes...
