Ridiculously Large Beauty HAUL! Part 1- Sephora, Ulta, Walmart & Hot Topic

Hey guys! I'm gonna admit right now, I've been so bad with buying beauty products! Ever since my spending ban ended April 1st, I gotta say I've gone a little insane. Hence the reason I have to split this haul into two parts. Partially because there's so much stuff, and I'm still waiting on some orders to arrive at my house!

First up is Sephora! After I placed the order online which I did a haul post here, I went to the mall the next weekend with my fiance and his friend. I sent them off to do their boy stuff while I went and did my girl stuff. After they went their own way, I hightailed it to the Sephora inside JC Penny and had some fun! It put a bit of a dent in my wallet, but it was so worth it!

The first thing I picked up was the Too Faced Boudoir Eyes Palette. I had my eyes on this baby since it came out! Once I saw it in person, I knew I had to have it in my collection (not that I really need anymore eyeshadow palettes!). The shadows are really soft and blend easily and I absolutely love the packaging! I also really love how the packaging is alot smaller compared to the other Too Faced palettes. This one is probably about half the size of an old one. 

I've already played with this a bit, and I tend not to stick with the color combinations they have for day, classic and night. You can definitely mix and match the colors to how you want! I'll most likely be doing a full review on this palette eventually where I'll have swatches and everything. So far I'm really liking this palette!

Now I really can't believe I bought the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette. I swore up and down that I didn't want or need it. However, once I walked into the store and laid my eyes on it, I'm pretty sure I heard angels singing. I don't know how Urban Decay sucks me in the way they do, but I fall for pretty much every palette that comes out from them! I can do a full review of this for you guys if you want, but I know there are already a million different reviews on it.

The last thing I bought from Sephora is the Sephora Collection Pro Bent Liner Brush #23. I wanted to get myself a liner brush like this because I'm trying to get into using gel eyeliner more, and I didn't really have a good brush to apply it with. I've already used this a couple times and I actually really love it! Now I'm not a pro in the gel eyeliner area, but this helped me create a straight line (or as straight as I could manage) and it didn't look too shabby. I'm not gonna try doing winged eyeliner quite yet, but once I master using gel liner normally, then I'll venture my way into cat eyes! 

I went to Ulta because I had one of those coupons for $3.50 off of a $10 purchase. I picked up the Freeman Facial Clay Mask Avocado & Oatmeal, and I wanted to get this because I want to try out a bunch of different treatments before I get married so I can get my skin in the best shape possible. This seems like a really nice mask because oatmeal is known to be very soothing yet they clay really helps to draw out oil and impurities in the skin, so I definitely can't wait to try this!

Then I picked up another one of the Maybelline Color Whispers in the color Berry Ready. I absolutely love the other one I bought so I had to get another one. 

I also went to Walmart because I had more coupons to use up, and I gotta admit, the prices for cosmetics there are insanely amazing! Seriously, the Covergirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balms I picked up are a good $3 less than at Ulta or any drugstore. Anyways, I had a coupon for $3 off when you purchase two Covergirl products and I had yet to try these Jumbo Gloss Balms. The color on the top is called 220 Haute Pink Twist and the one on the bottom is 215 Watermelon Twist. One thing that's really annoying is that the packaging doesn't have the color name on it, just the number, so I had to keep the wrapper to the Watermelon Twist so I can remember the name of it. I absolutely love these little guys! I haven't tried Haute Pink Twist yet, but the Watermelon Twist is such a beautiful color. It's very moisturizing and you can make it look sheer on your lips or you can build up the color how you want. 

I had another coupon for Sally Hansen Hard As Nails nail polish for buy one, get one free so I picked up the colors Mighty Mango (left) and Love Rocks (right). I honestly have never tried Sally Hansen nail polishes from what I can remember, but the buy one, get one free coupon sucked me in. I'm hoping they're nice.

Finally, I went to Hot Topic. I bought this adorable nail polish the same day I bought the stuff from Sephora. There's no brand to this nail polish, but Pinkie Pie's little face screamed buy me! So I did, and I think this is just so darn cute! I love how the lid is sparkly and the color of the nail polish looks nice as well. This was on sale for $3.50 so even if the formula of the polish sucks, I won't really care. Pinkie Pie is just so cute!

So that's part 1 of my pretty big haul! I'm still waiting for some things to get delivered to my house, so once I have everything, part 2 will be up! I might have to put myself on another spending ban...

Have you done any beauty shopping lately?


  1. Those Sally Hansen polishes are brilliant, I might have bought one or two recently... oops xx

    1. Good to know you like them! I've always heard Sally Hansen polishes are nice.

      I may have to buy more if I end up liking them...

      Thank you for your comment! :)

    1. I have the mint Julep one too, but have yet to try it also! They seem like a great bargain too since they're so inexpensive.

  3. Ooh, I haven't tried that Freeman mask! I want the Boudoir eyes palette as well, but I'm still trying to refrain from buying things for the rest of the year. I might have to pick it up regardless! :)

    1. If you even only buy one product this year, have it be the Boudoir Eyes palette! Seriously, the colors are beautiful!


Thank you for all your comments! I'll reply back as soon as I can :)
