I made 3(!!!!) online orders because I couldn't decide and added stuff after the fact. I also went in-store yesterday and picked up makeup items. All of my online orders are skincare, fragrance, and hair products. I really didn't want much makeup-wise this year. Or really ever again, if I'm honest with myself. If I never purchase another lipstick in my life I would be doing myself a huge favour!
Here is what I purchased in my local Sephora:
1. Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture eyeshadow palette (regular $55CAD)
2. Cover FX Illuminating Prime & Set (regular $35CAD)
3. Elizabeth & James Choose Your Nirvana Floral Edition (regular $36CAD)
First of all, I was never thrilled about the colour story or drama surrounding Subculture. I thought it would be difficult to make complete looks, and I never gave it a second thought or even once considered purchasing it. It was very easy to overlook the entire release and act like it didn't happen. But then Prism came out and I have to admit that even after my post looking for dupes and stating I wouldn't be buying, I ended up getting it. I have had SO much fun with the Prism palette and I adore the metallic/shimmer shades. I hadn't had a single trouble with Prism's colours or formula, so when I came across some swatches of Subculture again.. I was smitten. A magic switch flipped between one week and the next and I really wanted to get Subculture.
I bought the Cover FX set because I have never tried any of their products before. I have a feeling I might be a convert to the setting spray.
I love buying and sampling new fragrances. I will likely be purchasing a larger version of the Nirvana Rose ("a seductive floral blend embodying the heart of a dark rose with notes of Rose De Mai, Geranium, and Vetiver for a sultry refined scent with intrigue").
The rest of my "haul" looks like this (I ordered November 10th but honestly it hasn't even shipped and likely won't this week. I know they're busy with the sale so I can't fault anyone. I know some people ordered the 3rd and 4th and still don't have packages):
