Forgive me delivery people for I am weak…
The world is still shut down as governments continue their efforts to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic. What I shouldn’t be doing is continuing to shop… *Deepest sigh* but Sephora’s semi-annual sale is here so…
If you’re a not a Sephora Beauty Insider or VIB/VIB Rouge member, just know that this sale gives you an ultimated use coupon for 10%, 15%, or 20% off your entire purchase between certain dates. The higher your level, the greater discount and length of time to use it. With delivery companies counting as “essential”, they’re unable to work from home and continue to have increased risk of exposure. To be honest, I’m an avid online shopper and while I’ve tried to do my part by cutting down on my order volume, I knew I didn’t have the strength to miss this sale.
I did however try to purchase everything in one order, but the items I wanted kept being sold out. Alas, I have three orders coming in at very different times. The first (and largest) arrived today. Here’s what I got (pictures and swatches below):
- Kat von Dee Beauty Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks in A-Go-Go, Ayesha, Susperia, Crucifix, Sanctuary, K-Dub, and Malice
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Better Together Brow Kit in Dark Brown
- Glow Recipe Blueberry Bounce Gentle (mini)
- Milk Makeup Hydrogrip Primer (mini)
- Fenty Beauty Full Frontal Volume, Lift & Curl Mascara in Cuz I’m Black (mini)
I usually like to use these sales to buy the pricier items on my favorites list as well as sale and mini items. I figure this way I’ll maximize on my savings as well as decrease my chance of wasting full-size products.
Did any of you shop the sale? What did you get? Have you eased up on online shopping or are you carrying on strong?
