This Weekend Haul - Ulta and Chanel

Last Friday, I stopped by the mall because a friend of mine wanted to see MAC's new collection. Out of curiosity, we ventured into the Chanel beauty counter and although, I wasn't planning to get anything there. The sales associate manage to sell me something, lol.
Yesterday, I decided to stop by Ulta just because I haven't been there in a while, lol. I managed to get a few things I needed and a few things I didn't.

Top row from left to right
  • It's a 10 Miracle leave-in product. This is the third time I repurchased this product. It works well and smells freaken amazing. I got the large bottle, which is 10 oz for a whopping $36.00. Hmm yeah, the price made me cringe. This better last me long time.
  • TRESemme Dry Shampoo. Not sure if I'm going to need this now that I'm planning to hit the gym everyday but I was curious to try it.
  • REDKEN Hot Sets 22. I told the lady at Ulta that I needed a hair product that's going to help me keep my curls stay curly when using a curling iron and she suggested this product so we'll see how it works.
  • Physicians Formula Organic Wear Facial Makeup Remover Toilettes. PF was on BOGO sale and since I was running out of my makeup wipes, I decided to give these a try. I'm excited to give these a try.
  • Physicians Formula Eye Booster Ultra Black. I bought this as a back up since it was on BOGO. I really love this eyeliner.
  • NYX Eyebrow Marker. I probably could've waited till they have a sale so I can get it for cheaper but I didn't want to wait.
Bottow row from left to right
  • Free sample of Chanel Hydramax Active.
  • Chanel Premiere Lumiere Foundation. Ok, this is probably the most expensive foundation I have ever bought in my life, $55.00.
  • Zoya Yara. I love the color and the little flecks of gold was tempting me, lol.
  • Orly Fowl Play. OMG flakies and glitters. I'm in love.
  • OPI DS Glow. I couldn't put it back on the shelf after I saw how pretty it glowed.

 Orly Fowl Play looks like a glitter and flakies potion. Totally put me under its spell.

Guess what happened to my OPI polish. Some polish hardened underneath the cap so when twist it to open, it cracked! I'm soooo disappointed. My local Ulta is not that close to home so I guess I'll exchange it on my next trip there.

Can I justify this purchase? Probably not. I was going to need a new foundation soon but I could've picked something cheaper like the MUFE Matvelvet, which have been on my list for like forever, lol. So yeah, don't ask me what I was thinking. I wasn't. The sales associate told me that this was supposed to be a long-wearing, full coverage foundation with matte finish.
To sum it all, I spent an arm an a leg this weekend, which is ridiculous I know. On top of that I had to buy other miscellaneous stuff for home and kids. Good thing Friday was payday. Ughhh the price of beauty, is it worth it? Where do you draw the line?

  1. Guess who's back? hahaha. I know it will take me forever to back track on your postings but I'm glad to see you are still hauling! I really like that green color from Zoya. It's pretty and nice for fall.

  2. Love your haul!
    I'm curious about the dry shampoo<3

  3. Great haul! I've heard so much about that Chanel foundation. I'm actually considering trying it out myself. So sorry about the OPI nail polish. It sucks that the store isn't that close by. Otherwise, you picked up lovely items!

  4. Xongie-Welcome back...You been MIA long time gurl!

    MSodapop-I'll let you know once I get a chance to try it. I've been washing my hair everyday since I've been hitting the gym.

    Huda-I've been using it for the past few days so I will do a review in about a week, hopefully.
