Update: Apparently this is my 100th post on this blog! It’s not a very ceremonious post, but it is one which I was super excited while writing (as you can probably tell from reading it). Which makes me happy!
So, I did a decent amount of shopping last weekend. Not a huge amount, at least not compared to what I’ve seen some beauty bloggers post about, but what feels like a whole lot to me. You probably noticed that a lot of beauty products were on sale for this thing called Black Friday and this other thing called Cyber Monday — crazy, right? I always try to shop during sales because I love getting deals on things, and last weekend was no different. I definitely stocked myself up for a while!
I went into my shopping adventure with a definite plan. There were certain items I knew I wanted, and I did a lot of comparison shopping and whittling down of wishlists before ever ordering anything. I am so happy with what I ended up ordering, and I just couldn’t contain how excited I am about some of the products I’ll be receiving in the mail shortly, so I had to post about them before they even arrive.
My wishlist was pretty short, and I definitely didn’t stick to it, but I do think it helped me figure out what to narrow my shopping cart down to. All of the products on my wishlist were things I had felt like I needed multiple times in the last month, and it provided a great jumping-off point.
- A new cleanser (can be balm, oil, gel, or cream)
- The solution to whiteheads
- A good undereye concealer
- More multi-dimensional eyeshadows that can be worn alone
- Purple eyeliner that doesn’t drag at all
- A nail polish base coat
- A perfect MLBB lipstick color
- Some restocks: TBS Nutriganics eye cream, TBS Nutriganics Drops of Youth concentration, Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre (a full-size purchase after sampling)
I had a list of 11 stores which had sales going on that I wanted to investigate: Memebox, Birchbox, Crabtree & Evelyn, Rite Aid, The Body Shop, Sephora, Ulta, Zoya, Freeman, e.l.f., and Target.
I’ve never purchased anything from Memebox before, and I’ve barely even dipped my toes into the waters of Korean beauty at all, but Beeju‘s posts have been making me very curious. Elisabeth posted an image preview of the Black Friday sale they were going to be having and I decided I had to take advantage of it. I spent a lot of time browsing their website, and I am so happy with what I ended up picking. They’re all items I’m super excited about — I think this is the package I’m most excited to receive!
