Sephora October 2017 Private Sale Haul

Sephora October 2017 Private Sale Haul 1
Wow! I have not done any Sephora haul post since the time Sephora online had a glitch and I managed to score a few items on super low price. Here’s the thing. I have a medium size Sephora at home myself so I really don’t need anything. BUT, when Fenty Beauty was launched, I bought a few items to try and also to patch the hole for the RM593 that I needed to spend in order to keep my Black Card status *&^%^*^$. Yes, that’s me cursing at the nonsense rule. I thought Black Card status is permanent??! The email sent from Sephora was pretty nonsense too, with the title “Don’t Go”. I was like, go? Go where? Then only I know what they meant &%@#^(^%. Yes, I’m cursing again.

After all the unnecessary spending, I am left with RM133 balance needed to spend to keep the Black Card. I have always wanted to go back and pick up the Fenty Beauty Invisimatte Blotting Paper Refill (RM40) because I like it a lot. Despite what people say about the Inivisimatte Blotting Paper, I actually like it. The chic packaging with hexagon shape and a mirror on the dispenser are a few of the factors as well. Then, I found out towards the end of September that the private sale will happen on the 5th October. Perfect timing! It make sense for me to purchase the refill since I already have the dispenser. I bought two. I know it seems too much but that will last me probably till the next sale 🙂 . Plus buying one is too little lol.

Nudestix Lip + Cheek Dual Pencil Mystic/Whisper: A Pencil Not for the School but for the Face

Nudestix Lip + Cheek Dual Pencil 1
On one Sephora online price glitch morning, I stumbled upon these Nudestix Lip + Cheek Dual Pencil going for RM27 each. There are only two dual pencil within the Nudestix range so of course, you bet I grabbed both of it. RM27 each??!! Are you kidding me? 😛 . One of this pencil is retailing for RM92! Score!

A few months went down the road and I have not break into either of the pencil yet, until one fine day. I needed to clear out my “mini warehouse” so I chose a few new makeup products to break into. The Nudestix Lip + Cheek Dual Pencil in the shade Mystic/Whisper is more of my kind of shade especially Mystic so naturally I would start with that first.

Travel-Friendly Makeup Kit: How To Look Glam and Save Luggage Space When You Travel

Sephora Travel Friendly Makeup
I, for one has been taking pride in travelling with everything full size. People say I’m crazy but I just like how all the full size beauty products lining up at the hotel bathroom against the huge mirror 😀 . Well, that was until the recent Singapore trip with Olay where I find myself having trouble stuffing all my beauty products into my luggage. I was only going for a few days so I do not plan to bring a bigger luggage. The issue occurs because I brought my running gear with me. So that took hella lots of space hence lesser space for my beauty products 🙁 . I have come to realisation that I need makeup kit that has everything I need, minus the bulkiness and luggage space. Hence I went online to Sephora.my and found these two Travel-Friendly Makeup Kit that covers everything that you need.

Sephora.my Online Sale “Glitch” Haul

Sephora Online Haul 1
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.

Sephora Online Haul 2
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 🙁

Sephora Online Haul 3
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 😀 .

Sephora Online Haul 4
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 😀

 

NYX Micro Brow Pencil: Word On The Street That It’s Anastasia Beverly Hills Dupe, The Rumours Are True

NYX Micro Brow Pencil
If there is one makeup application that I am proud of, that would be my brow shaping. I go through brow pencil so fast that I no longer bother to spend loads on eyebrow pencil. Everyone on Youtube including their mama and grandma uses Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz. Brow Wiz is a ultra-thin automatic pencil that is said to be the best among the best. When NYX came out with Micro Brow Pencil, everyone on Youtube started to compare it with Brow Wiz saying it is a cheaper dupe.

Sephora Malaysia Goes Online!

The moment everyone have been waiting for. That is right! Sephora is now online in Malaysia!

I guess everyone know Luxola.com/my by now. I even nominated Luxola as one of My Favourite Top 3 Online Beauty Stores to shop at previously. And if you have been following me on my Instagram, you will know that Luxola has been rebranded as Sephora.my. That is a good news for those who does not have access to go Sephora Malaysia store physically. Plus, it is all about online shopping these days 🙂
