Another haul post

Hello everyone, today I want to share a haul from my latest buys at Sephora, CVS, Sally Beauty, Ulta, Beauty Brands & Kohl's. If you know me, you know I love deals, so most of these products were on sale and some even free! 

I got a Sephora gift card for my Bday just in time to catch the Sephora Favorites Sun Safety Kit! So I had to order it! It came in a clear/gold/hot pink zippered pouch at $30 for a ton of products, and $20 goes to the Skin Cancer Foundation, no brainer! (Sorry, I think the kit is currently sold out)
Also, I had been eyeing the "Bottled Dreams" perfume sampler for a while and since it was my Bday month... why not? It is my first time buying a Sephora perfume sampler but it seems like a really good deal, this one was $50, you get 6 deluxe sized perfume samples in actual little bottles instead of vials, and a voucher to get a full sized bottle of the one you like the most; the sampler also has a pretty full sized hot pink nail polish (Sephora by OPI). 

The 6 bottles you get are generous enough to actually try each scent several times, the little bottles are also super cute and would look adorable anywhere you want to display them! The only thing that could have made them better is if they were spray bottles, but I will manage. 

The voucher is good for a full sized bottle, which is the 1 oz size for 5 of the scents and 1.7 oz for Couture La La, the full sizes retail anywhere from $52 to $70. I think my favorite is Couture La La, which retails for $70 for a 1.7oz bottle! Score!!! (Sorry, I think the sampler is currently sold out)
Also, here are the samples I got with my order, even got a little something for the fiancé!
A few days ago, alerted by one of my favorite sites "Nouveau Cheap" I was alerted of the CVS beauty clearance! check out her post here, so of course I had to go see if I could find any of the goods people across the country were finding! I had $5 in ECB and a coupon for $2 off a $10 cosmetics purchase, so using both and finding all these babies on clearance, I managed to get them all for an extreme price of $3.66, yes, all 6 products! :P
Also, since May is my Bday month, I had the Sally's $10 off a $20 purchase coupon, so there I went and picked out these goodies!
After the coupon I paid $13.54 for everything, including taxes! I wanted a new top coat, I was using "G & G HK Girl - Fast Drying + Super Shiny Top Coat", which worked great until I got around half the bottle, then it would get thick way to often and having to apply thinner every time you want to use it is just annoying! A good friend recommended Poshe, so I picked it up, used it yesterday and love it so far! I have the red Sally's card, so my price was $4.99. I also got Orly "Peaceful Opposition" on sale for $3.99 and a hair bun thingy ($2.79) because I gotta know what the buzz is about! 

Have I told you I love emilynoel83? Well, a while back I saw one of her videos where she compares the Palladio Herbal Foundation Primer to Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer and have been wanting to try it ever since! I love Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer, but I don't love paying $36 for 30ml of product. The Palladio primer gives you 20ml for $10.69-$11.99 (depending on which Sally's card you have) so it's definitely a better deal!

Then I went to Ulta... I picked up only a couple of things, have you guys tried Batiste Dry Shampoo? I have heard good things about it and Ulta had it for $7.99 with a free mini travel size can! My favorite dry shampoo is Bed Head Rockaholic Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo by Tigi, but I'm always looking to try something new! 

Ulta was having one of their buy 2 get 2 free deals, and I was looking for a tanning mitt, now, let me explain, I am latin/hispanic/whateveryouwannacallit but my legs need serious help, they have no color at all, must be this Midwest thing and snowstorms in April and such, anywho, I was going to buy the St Tropez Tanning Mitt at Sephora for $6.50 but read the reviews and this one seems to work just as good. They sell for $4.99 a piece and with the promo I got 4 for $10!
I also got a couple of NYX pencil liners (again based on reviews I have seen/read), check out the colors below: Pinky and Teal. I've heard they compare to Urban Decay's 24/7 pencils... we will see...
Oh then I went to Beauty Brands, honestly I don't shop there a lot, I always feel they are overpriced and don't have a big selection as Ulta or Sephora; but I do get coupons once in a while and then I go. This time the coupon was for a free full size Bed Head Straighten Out, which retails for $17.98. 

Me and my crazy curly hair are always looking for help when it comes to taming my curls and making my life easier when I flat iron my locks! It was free with any purchase so I bought a $0.99 buffing block, hey I needed one and it said "any purchase" :P
My last stop was Kohl's, one of my favorite stores! I had $10 Kohl's cash, a $10 promotional gift and a 15%off coupon. I got all the goodies below for $5.17!!! Woo hoo score! (Don't judge, I only got the Paris Hilton set because it was on clearance for $9 and who doesn't love perfume roll ons?)
My favorite item, this Rock & Republic Two Tone Bead & Skull Stretch Bracelet, yes, it's sparkly like that in real life! On clearance for $3.40!!! Love!
That's all I have for you in this post! Sorry it was so long! Do you like anything I got? What's your favorite place to score deals? 

Thank you for stopping by,
Fiorella :)
