Turns out I am a sucker for a bag of samples with purchase. Some of you probably received the same email….spend $60 and get $100 worth of samples in a cute little bag!
So..perfect excuse to buy an Urban Decay Naked Palette. I decided that the colors in 2 would suit me better. It was $54 and came with two gifts…a 24/7 Black Velvet Eyeliner (same as I received in my Ipsy bag this month) as well as a deluxe sample of Eye Primer that I have heard so much about and have been wanting to try. Once I opened the palette, another primer sample came out…a smaller one with 4 different samples that claims each sample is a week’s worth! So even MORE free stuff!
I needed to spend $60 to get the free bag of samples, so I also bought some travel sized H2O + products as they were buy 2 get 1 free and figured I can take them on vacation in a few months or to the boyfriends or on weekend trips. You get the point :) I LOVE the smell. It reminds me of the beach and summer but without the usual coconut fragrance! Not that I mind the coconut fragrance in other products ( I actually love it as well) but this is so different! Not too happy about some of the ingredients though, but I’ll use these up!
And here is the bag of freebies Ulta values at $100! The last photo is actually the free samples with purchase that you can get with any Ulta order – I choose a random mix and got all hair oils..weird. Included in the sample bag is a full size Mally mascara ($20), Vichy (a brand I LOVE) Liftactiv Night deluze sample ($9) and a ton more, some of which I am excited to try and some of which is going to trade! Also included was a $5 off $10 purchase of any Ulta brand product….good until January 2015 so definitely saving this one!
So I got ALL this for a grand total of $64! Had I remembered to use my $3.50 coupon code and shopped through Ebates I would have saved an additional $8.62 (darn!). That would have pretty much made everything free but the palette! I need to make myself some kind of reminder….I get sucked in to great sales so quickly and stop thinking of all else! Here is a photo of everything together:
Heading to LUSH later today! This will be my first time shopping there – everything I have LUSH so far has been a gift from my super cute awesome boyfriend! Will post about that later this weekend!
