So, I follow quite a few beauty related pages on here and on Instagram and I have seen quite a few people posting about finding Kat Von D eyeshadow palettes and lipstick at 50-75% off of normal retail value! Kat Von D does no wrong (makeup wise) in my eyes, so I went on a quest to find these deals…and walked out with more things. That’s how makeup quests typically go, right?
I’ve also had a very tough week. I have money set aside in my Poshmark balance for “emergencies” so I can get out for a bit with the girls (my kids). I let Harmony pick out a Hello Kitty notebook and we made a day out of it. It was much needed for all of us.
So, this haul wasn’t “mini” but I will say that I didn’t spend very much on this haul at all!
I will have swatches of some of the products throughout the post 🙂
Pop Beauty Set I found this adorable set for $8, which is about half of what these retail normally. I have a Pop Beauty eyeshadow trio from an ipsy bag that I like, so I decided to give this one a try. For $8 I got an eyeshadow trio, lip crayon, and blush. It’s a peach themed set, which is perfect for my pale skin!
These are the swatches. The bottom one is the lip crayon in “peach promise,” the next 3 are the eyeshadows from the rich cocoa trio (very smooth and pigmented), and the top one is the blush in “peach sheen.” I have to say that I am head over heels in love with the blush. This entire set is beautiful…but that blush. LOOK.
My next finds were the cute little Ciate nail polishes. One in “ladylike luxe” (very gold) and another called “butterscotch.” These retail on sephora.com for $15 each, but I found these on clearance for $2 each! I almost had to fan myself. The butterscotch one’s packaging was a bit damaged, but to be honest I just love the color. I love the gold one too, but that’s mostly my tacky glittery side talking 😀
Too Faced Gold Glitter Glaze This was one of my favorite finds. These retail for $21 or so and I snagged it for $5! Too Faced is probably my second favorite high end brand, so when I found this I almost squealed. It appealed to me on several levels. It appealed to my love for all things Too Faced, and my tacky glittery side because this stuff is straight up gold.
It’s so perfect, and I am already trying to come up with a way to incorporate it into a holiday/NYE look.
Kat Von D Roller Ball Perfume in “Sinner” I don’t think I have ever talked about perfume on my blog until now. I’m not very into perfume for several reasons. I have bad allergies and many tend to bother me, and I have kids and I don’t want it to bother them. However, this roller ball seems perfect because I can put it on my wrists and such to give a subtle smell. I actually like this scent. It’s very feminine with a hint of musk. Not flowery or fruity. It’s very…me. I can put it in my purse if I’m going to be out all day, which I also like. I have a 6 month old infant, and sometimes things happen (or literally shit happens) and I end up smelling like a drooly baby. I found this for $5, and I couldn’t find it on Sephora’s site, but I saw it going for $15-30 on ebay and amazon.
Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks and Butter London Gloss These were probably my favorite finds of the day, because 2 of them were what I went out searching for! Alas, I did not find any eyeshadow palettes, but I am happy with everything I did find. Anyway, I found 2 foiled love liquid lipsticks. One in the shade “Adora” (metallic bright red) and “Forever and Never” (coppery nude) I love both of these shades! I also ended up finding a Butter London Gloss for $3. I’ve never tried anything from Butter London. Ever. I will say that this gloss smells like straight up cupcakes, and that’s the biggest reason why I bought it. I’m not very into glosses, but I have been trying to find some that I do like because I do like how they look on others. I did find these on Ulta’s website for $20 at normal price…holy cow.
Swatches from the bottom up: Butter London “Dandy Bubbles”, “Adora,” and ‘Forever and Never.”
I never would have thought to look at Marshalls for such incredible makeup deals. I haven’t been in a Marshalls in a long time because I find it hard to find many things that I like since I’m not a designer clothing/purse fanatic. I will say that if you have a Marshalls close by to go exploring, you may find something awesome! I’m still so happy about these finds. Who doesn’t love a great deal on high end makeup?
