Sephora VIB Sale Haul (NARS, REN, Dior, etc.)

Yes, I did just do a mini Sephora haul just a couple of weeks before the VIB sale... As mentioned in that particular post, I had a 10% discount code and wanted to get the items at some discount before they sold out during the VIB.

I didn't really feel like hustling and bustling with the crowds after work, so I had a game plan to just order online.  Plus, this way I would earn an extra 4% cash back through Ebates!

I have another trip to Portland coming up after Christmas, so I was very selective in the chosen items--US prices and no sales tax -- weeeee!  I bought the items if the discounted price was either equivalent or lower than what I would pay in Portland; otherwise, they will be purchased in Portland ;)

REVIEW: NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in 2457 Dragon Girl

I can only handle hearing Chelsea (ChelseaWears) talk and swatch NARS velvet matte lip pencils so many times before I cave.

I couldn't bare to gamble the available inventory of Sephora during the VIB sale, so I decided to purchase my most desired shade out of the line when I had the 10% off coupon code (haul post).

My choice:  Dragon Girl.

REVIEW: Tom Ford Lip Color in 01 Spanish Pink

My heart went major pitter-patter when I saw Tom Ford at the Chicago Premium Outlets' CCO in early October (haul post).

TF Spanish Pink is one of those cult favourites that is highly coveted.  The sales associate could barely pry it out of my hands so she could ring it through the cash register.

My preciousssssssssssssssssssssssssss...

REVIEW: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette (Limited Edition)

Every time I walk past find myself inside a Sephora, I would always swatch the Hourglass ambient lighting powders... never could bring myself to drop the cash... but alas, as you would've seen from my haul post, that I didn't remove it from my shopping cart for a final time.

I give you the play-by-play of the gorgeous packaging...

Sephora Haul (Hourglass, NARS, GlamGlow, etc.)

I always fall victim to those promotional emails...

Sephora had one of those interactive rolling pinball games, where you could receive promotional codes for either popular deluxe samples, free shipping, or 10% off.  My heart strings were tugged at when I got the 10% off code.

Of course, I went to Sephora through Ebates (see my post on Ebates).  My total purchase amount was approximately $90, and I gained approximately $4 in Ebates cash back!
