Collective haul: Lancome, Murad, CoverGirl, Tarte, Ben Nye, Equate, Rimmel and Hourglass

03 Nov 2012

I’ve been shopping! Well, not really… These are just a few items I picked up in the past three months, not in one shopping trip. I hardly ever do real ‘hauls’, as people call it, because honestly… I never buy a lot of beauty items at once. Usually I pick up things here and there: usually when I have coupons or when there’s a big (online) sale.

My friend V. (make-up and more) recently asked me if I’d bought any new makeup or skin care. And… her question was my inspiration for this post. The items below I all bought with some sort of discount… score! 🙂

Let’s take a look!

CoverGirl Lipstick Flipstick Blast

CoverGirl Blast Flipstick Blast in 855 Minx

I see the tv commercial for this almost daily. I decided to pick one up to see if I’d like it. I bought the color ‘Minx’, which is a brown/bronze color.

Rimmel Kate Moss Nr. 04 Lipstick matte

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate in Nr. 04

A purple! Whaaat? Yep, I decided that purple is my new thing this Fall. More about my new purple obsession in a different post. 😉

Equate makeup remover eye

Equate Eye Makeup Remover

I’ve heard SO many people rave about this eye makeup remover from Walmart that I decided to pick it up. It’s really inexpensive and oil-free, so why not?

Lancome Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector

Lancome Visionnnaire Advanced Skin Corrector

I purchased this from Groupon. This is a very expensive product (a serum), which I normally never would have bought. However, Groupon had a great deal on it that I couldn’t resist!

Hourglass primer mineral veil Ben Nye Final Seal Setting Spray Amazonian Clay Tarte Full Coverage Foundation

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation
Ben Nye Final Seal Makeup Sealer

I purchased the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer and Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Foundation from Sephora’s Friends and Family sale. These two products had been on my wish list for SO long. They’re both pretty expensive, but the 20% off made it a little bit easier. And the Ben Nye Makeup Sealer (this is a setting spray) I ordered from Ricky’s when they had free shipping with no minimum purchase.

Murad Acne Clarifying Cleanser Gentle Treatment Gel

I bought the acne treatment gel from Dillard’s (a department store). It was on sale (50% off!) and I received a deluxe sample of the cleanser as a gift with purchase. Yay! You can’t beat that!

Did you see anything that you’d like me to do a review on? Let me know! 🙂
