…I would check out with over $1,000 worth of stuff in my cart. GRANTED, $600 of that $1000 is due to the NARS Vault which features 10x NARS Audacious Lipstick, and 10x Full Sized nail polish – anyone wants to chip in?
That being said, if I money were really not an issue, I would check out with so much more stuff than the ones I originally intended to purchase. My sister called me out the other day on having too much makeup, and that stung a little bit. Not in a bad way, but I definitely thought I’ve seen so much self-improvement, in not spending anything on makeup in the last 2 months. Given that this is only one of the 2 times that we’ll see high end products being “on sale”, I thought I could indulge a little bit. That being said, I didn’t feel offended or upset, just a thought that maybe I haven’t been as diligent as I assumed I had been.
My biggest weakness has always been value sets. Any time there’s a value set, 90% of the time it ends up in my cart. Most times, I end up using all of the products in the set (which is super awesome because who wants to see it go to waste, right?) but there have been times where I’ve ended up chucking 50% of it which doesn’t end up being a real savings after all.
If you were running out of ideas as to what you should shop for during the sale, here are a few things that I wish I could pick up (if money was no issue!)
With this Sephora sale, I’ve set myself a budget of $200 max that I can spend throughout the whole sale! I’m trying to be good and have that $200 include taxes too. So far, I think I’ve been quite good, and repurchased only stuff that I know I use on a daily basis. I ended up placing a second order, and potentially a third one because I just saw some new value sets pop up. This is kind of bad!
Also, do you guys prefer to shop at Sephora online or in-store? I’ve always found my in-store experience as being highly mixed, so there’s no real way os saying the stores in Toronto are better or worse!
