December Makeup Haul (Pharmaprix, Mascara, Urban Decay, Quo)

December Makeup Haul (Pharmaprix, Mascara, Urban Decay, Quo)

If you're a blogger on a budget or want to watch what you're spending- keep track of it. Each month, I list out what I purchase and keep a total. It adds up fast and seeing the total can really keep you on track. I decided that I would start showing my monthly makeup/beauty hauls and December was a great month to start. I didn't really buy alot because I had so much Christmas stuff going on. I mentioned being more intentional with what I purchase this year, and I've been doing pretty good. So here is what I picked up:

Eye Studio Mascara Sampler

This is the second time I purchased the Pharmaprix/Shoppers Drug Mart mascara sampler.  I believe these are only available for the holidays. I haven't seen them at any other time of year. I really enjoy trying new mascaras, but high end mascara's do cost quite a bit. This sample allows me to try out these brands, see which ones really work on my lashes, and I can pick one to purchase full size with an included gift certificate. Most of these are new to me, which is exciting. This cost 42$ but I was able to get them for free with points. 

Urban Decay Naked Cherry

I really wanted this palette and I tried to talk myself out of it. When I had points that I could redeem, I chose this palette with no hesitation. Urban Decay isn't available at every Beauty Boutique but I the one near me did have them in store. Overall, I really do enjoy this palette and I recently reviewed it here. I love the color story of this palette, it's not super unique but it is very pretty and I keep going back to it.

Quo Megawatt Duo Highlighter

This Quo duo higlighter was stunning when I swatched it in store and picked it up right away. I'm not sure if it is limited edition or not but I'm so happy to have it in my collection. I reminds me of the Pixi highlighter duo's that recently launched. I did review and swatch this on a recent blog post, you can see it here.

  3. That mascara sample set looks so awesome, the perfect way to try lots of new ones without having to many full sized ones open at once.
