If you guys love a good sale (I mean who doesn’t honestly,) you are in the right place!! If you are one of our amazing subscribers you have probably read more than a few times that I’m stationed in Norway with my husband. I’ve been going through SERIOUS shopping withdrawals, let me just tell you that the saying, “you don’t know what you have until it’s gone,” is so incredibly true. I’ve been missing TJ Maxx, Target, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Ulta, etc.
I’m back in Maryland for the month to visit my family, so just know now that I’m going to be doing quite a few haul posts since I can finally shop at my fav stores again. Without further ado, let’s jump right in because I can’t contain my excitement anymore.
(I also grabbed a few things from Ulta, so I’m just going to add them to this post because I got some really great deals.)
Let’s start with this Danso DA-04 Ivory Rug by Loloi that retails for $59.00. I’ve been wanting a rug like this for awhile now, I feel like if you’re a beauty blogger you are almost required to have one of these rugs for photo purposes. You’ll notice that all the pictures I took for this haul are on this rug. I love how soft and fun it makes the photos. It has such good contrast. The best part is that I got this bad boy for only $15.00… Tell me that’s not a steal.
This Pinita Colada Body Sorbet retails at the Body Shop for $15.00, I got it for $4.99. It smells delicious, like pineapple and coconut, and has such a fantastic lather. The Body Shop is actually having a sale this weekend bringing the price down to $10.50, but I would check your local TJ Maxx or Marshalls first. They had a huge selection of The Body Shop products.
I got this Milani Brilliant Shine lip gloss in the shade Sweet Grapefruit for $1.99 it retails on Amazon for $8.68. I honestly thought that it was going to be more pigmented because of how bright it is in the tube. It was still quite a steal though considering how cheap it was.
I’m a sucker for all things makeup wipes, I typically grab a few packs when I hit up a TJ Maxx, because of how cheap they are. I got these because I loved how cute the packaging was. I always have the hardest time picking wipes because of how many they have. These Jean Pierre Cosmetics wipes smell so good and did such a great job removing my makeup. They retail for $10.00 on the website, but I got them for $1.99.
This VIP Eyelash Kit from ELF Cosmetics comes with a lash applicator, Lash Stand, 1 pair of false lashes, and eyelash glue. This typically retails for $4.00, I got it for $3.00. It’s not a huge price drop, but it’s worth it for how much you’re getting in this kit. I’m rarely disappointed with ELF so I’m hoping these work well for me.
I’m most excited for this product. I got Kat Von D’s Lightning liner in the shade Poe. It’s a super cute purple shade, which is hard to see above. I saw some negative reviews on Youtube for this product, because people weren’t reading the directions and using it properly so I’m excited to let you guys know exactly what’s up with this product. It retails for $20.00m I got it for $7.99
I got these Sunkissed Jumbo Bronzing Pearls for $2.99, they retail for around $5.00. I’ve been obsessed with pearl type beauty products since I tried Guerlain’s Meteorites powder, which is WAY more expensive than $2.99.
Moving on from TJ Maxx, these are the few items I got from Ulta:
I got the extremely popular L’oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise mascara that everyone is raving about. It’s supposed to be similar to Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, which is my favorite mascara ever. I’m going to do a comparison post for you guys.
Ulta was having their L’oreal products buy one get one 50% off, so I also got this Infallible Paints Metallic Lippie in the shade Moon Lust, I really love the color, however, it’s one of those lippies that you have to reapply pretty frequently. It does provide a lot of moisture which I think is surprising for a metallic lippie. Isn’t that color adorable?
I had to get a new Revolution Strobe Highlighter, which as you know is my FAVORITE cheap highlighter. I completely ruined my other one by dropping it one too many times.
Here are all the products I got, I didn’t include the Cliniques because I want to do a separate post for those. But I’d say I made out pretty well.
What’s the best beauty item you’ve found at a discount store?
