So, clearly I was lying to myself and anyone keeping up with my blog posts. XD I am back with a makeup haul, despite my intentions not to purchase any new makeup products (especially eyeshadow palettes). What can I say? I love makeup… a lot! I am grateful to still have space in our budget to continue buying what I want and still have my bills paid. After a recent declutter of makeup that I’d been holding on to since 2016, as well as some hit-panned items, I felt like I didn’t have much left to work with. I have definitely beefed my collection back up and I am happy to say I have some really great products that I really enjoy.
Anastasia Beverly Hills x NORVINA
Today, I am sharing my #HappyMail haul of makeup goodies from Anastasia Beverly Hills and Juvia’s Place! I had been running back and forth to Sephora trying to get the new Norvina Pro Pigment Palette Volume 3 for at least two weeks! >:( Eventually I gave up and decided to purchase it online from the main website. The deal was sweetened when I signed up for their Newsletter and received a 15% OFF coupon; which worked on my palette purchase. Plus free shipping. So yay! This palette retails for $60 USD + tax/shipping and I was able to get it for $51 USD with free shipping. 🙂 Its funny because I had zero interest in this particular color scheme, until I saw the make-up looks rolling out with this one. Hey, a girl can change her mind!
Shortly after, the new ABH Norvina Pro Pigment Mini Palettes Vol. 1 and 2 debuted. Lord! Norvina is killing us with these makeup releases, but I was right in line for these as well. Mr. Right says these are my early Birthday/Christmas gifts. 🙂
For the last week or so, Juvia’s Place has been hosting a 40% OFF sale. I took advantage, once again, to get the palettes I wanted and didn’t have. I wasn’t sold at first on the new Nomad palette, but a few Instagram influencers changed my mind about that, too. Palettes ranged from $9-15 USD during the sale. The new and colorful Warrior III wasn’t in stock at the time of this order, but it came in shortly after. So, I placed a separate order for it (and BOGO on blush!). I was surprised the new Warrior III was on sale for $12 USD as well! These were such good deals, I had to share the good news with my coworker. I enabled her to try Juvia’s Place, too and she loves it!
Last, but not least is the Sugarpill x Little Twin Star collaboration collection. This debuted earlier this year (or was it last year?) after a few reviews I wasn’t quite sold, especially since I only really wanted the cosmetic bag and keepsake box. I am in luck! This entire bundle discounted down to $16.95 USD (originally $70-80 USD) on Sugarpill’s website! The code HICUTIE will get you 15% OFF as well. (P.S.- At the time of this post, my order from Sugarpill just shipped, but I’ll be sure to have photos for my review and on post when arrives on Instagram @todaytamaraforever) 🙂
It’ll be awhile before I can work through all these beauty reviews for palettes, but I am surely going to have fun doing it! <3
