I don’t usually browse Sephora.my as I get my Sephora fix directly from the store instead of their online store but there is this ad on Facebook by Sephora saying that their online store is having a 25% sale on selection items. Curious cat I was, I login to Sephora.my, look for the SALE tab and started browsing. When I saw Nudestix Lip + Cheek Pencil was on sale price of RM27, I excitedly continue to browse and discover more and more items on a really steal price. Then I started Whatsapping a few people. I Whatsapp Paris B on Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick and Kiss Pop Lipstick that was on RM36 sale price, ShopGirl on the unbelievable RM27 discovery, and Mieza on Nudestix 3 PC Magnetic Eye Colour Kit which was RM51 for the whole set. What was odd was the discount percentage shown was lesser than the final price shown. I could not be bothered about the percentage. My eyes was glued to the final price lol.
I placed my order, made payment and my parcel was sent out a few hours after that. But because my area was not within Aramex delivery area, as usual the parcel was redirected to GDex and it arrived yesterday afternoon. There was three Nudestix Lip + Cheek Stain set available but one of the set was sold out. So I got the other two – Soul & Flesh and Mystic & Whisper. The description on Sephora.my page said that this is a 4-in-1 product. I always thought it is a 2-in-1 stick so I went to Sephora.com for more info. It said it is a lip color, lip liner, lip balm, and cheek color. Duh! Anyhow you put it it’s still a 2-in-1 product for me LOL.
Marc Jacobs was on a huge markdown as well. Well, at least that is what I thought. It was just a system glitch or human error 😛 . Since I have been buying so much lipstick lately including Nudestix in this small haul so I skipped their irresistible RM26 lipstick, for which I regretted now. I stumbled upon the Marc Jacobs Feather Noir Ultra-Skinny Lash-Discovering Mascara for just RM32. Seriously? I paid near to RM50 for Korean brand skinny mascara. And this is Marc Jacobs! BUY! I do not want to tempt you but the Genius Gel foundation was just RM60. Let’s not get into Becca. I had my eyes on so many of their products but they ran out of the shades I want so I was forced to not get any Becca 🙁
Oh. This is one interesting story. Earlier in June, Sephora sent out a newsletter on a free Benefit Cosmetics ka-BROW! Eyebrow Cream-Gel Colour deluxe sample for the first 50 Black Card customers by entering a certain code. It was supposed to be valid from 2nd June to 8th June. I had a few things in my cart and entered the code for the GWP but never get to checkout. The GWP item remains in my cart all this while until last week. So when I checkout, the gift remains. I was curious to see if Sephora would send me the GWP and they did 😀 .
So that is my small Sephora online haul. I think they notice the pricing error and everything was readjusted back to the sale price that was supposed to be within a few hours. What I paid was indeed a glitch. It happens all the time with Sephora.my. But this time the glitch was a steal for me and to those who managed to purchase some of the items 😀
