Its my Birthday Today 😀 . For the past few years, I have shown you guys what I got for my b’day so I decided to do the same this year as well. Every year I shop in Sephora on my birth month so that I will get my free b’day gift 😀 and I did the same this year as well. For the past 2 years, I have got perfumes but this year, I think I have all the perfumes I want and decided to look for other stuffs 🙂 .
I couldn’t decide what to get and after lot of research, I finally decided to get the Benefit value set. I LOVE the value sets in Sephora. They have small sizes of lot of products and that’s all I need 🙂 . I still have the Benefit value eye kit I got last year and I use them occasionally. It still has a lot of products and I will never end up using the full product anyway. I always throw the products away after I had them for 2 years or so and most of the time, It still has a lot of products in them. And that’s why I love this small-sized ones 😀 .
Anywhoo, this year I wanted to go to Sephora shop and not order online because I have to buy for $50 to get a free shipping and I know that I don’t want to do that. So Hubby took me to the nearest mall where they had Sephora. This mall has 2 Sephora and one was inside the JCPenny. So in the first shop I was browsing, I saw the clearance section and of course, I wanted to go and see what they had 🙂 . They had a lot of Sephora’s own brand products mostly lip, skin, nail and eye products. So I got the Smoky Kohl in Copper, Lip pencil in Gorgeous Peach, Eye shadow in Sun Kissed and finally, Lavanilla deodorant.
And the Benefit set you see is the B’day Gift 😀 (yayy). It has a small mascara and a highlighter. I love their birthday gifts. Last year I got the Sugar lip product which had the original lip balm and the rose lip balm. After using them, I can actually understand why people spend about $22 for a lip balm. They are AMAZING. I have them in my hand bag and use them mostly during travel.
Moving on, then I went to the Sephora inside the JCPenny and was searching for the clearance section 😀 and what do I see? They have the Cover FX products on sale. OMG, I was beyond excited because I know that they are crazy pricey. After much debate with myself 😉 , I finally got the skin tint and the mineral powder. I did swatch them on my hands and it was pretty accurate. So decided to go for these colors. The skin tint alone has the original price of about $42 and the pressed mineral powder was about $32 . And the clearance price was about $17 and $14 respectively. I was just doing boogie in my mind 😆 .
And you want to know the best thing of all 😀 . I got the 15% off on all products for the Beauty Insider sale :yay: . I was totally excited after these buy and I can say that this is the best bargain birthday gift ever 😀 .
I also got another gift from my hubby 😉 . I had my eye on an online jewellery designer for a few months and I finally decided to order them. Its calle Hues Design by Ashwini. She doesn’t have a website but she does have facebook page and I ordered them after looking at some designs. They are amazing. I love her designs. They are mostly Indian designs and wanted to have one of her earrings 🙂 . I finally decided to get one. I loved this design and it has pearls in it. I chose this because I could wear it with any colored dress. I still haven’t worn them.
