Beauty Hauls: Sephora Online Order and BeautyBrands Purchases

I decided to place on order with Sephora after I read DebE’s Gotta Haves #4 post and found that the Benefit Rockateur blush looked just too gorgeous to pass up. I also wanted to get some of the other items from my September Beauty Wish List so I added the Philosophy Raspberry Shower Gel to my cart. $5.50 away from free shipping also made me the proud owner of three new nail polishes (they were 3 for $10 after all). Is it bad that I’m almost more excited to try out those than the blush that was the original reason for the order?

I also used up some of my points, got a free gift with purchase, and some free samples – a lot of freebies for just one order…

A few days ago the package finally arrived. Here are the contents of my order:

The same day I also visited my local BeautyBrands to exchange my Smashbox Photo Finish More Than Primer – Blemish Control for the Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Primer. I was also hoping to pick up OPI – I Knead Sour-Dough from the San Francisco Collection. Seeing that polish in person though, it was darker than I expected from pictures I’ve seen and slightly too brown for my taste. I decided to go with another OPI polish, Chicago Champage Toast, which looked like a very pretty rose metallic.

I also had some coupons for free items (I love BeautyBrands coupons – they’re seriously the best). In addition, I was able to snatch up a few samples. I was most excited to see that they had little samples of the Murad Essential-C Day Moisture. I’ve really been liking the Essential-C Night Moisture I got in my last Murad order so I’ve been curious to try more of the products in the Environmental Shield line.
