Sephora Haulage + Engraving Service

My latest trip to Sephora was quite eventful! For starters, I lost my White Sephora Card, again. So, I had to sign up for a new one, all over again. I used the same e-mail and phone number, so I’m hoping that the points got transferred (forgot to check). If not, that’s still okay, because I purchased no less than 3 perfumes as birthday gifts (2 girls, 1 guy) which will definitely help me rack up the points to get upgraded from a White Sephora Card to a Black Sephora Card (deets here) that much faster. The perfumes are not shown because I already gifted them to the recipients. I did ask for some fragrance samples (because buying perfumes for others kinda’ made me wanna’ play around with some of my own) and surprise surprise, they’d “just ran out of samples“. However, I was promised that my perfume picks would get decanted into tiny little vials in lieu of fragrance samples (which made me happy)! Plus, I got everything shown in the photo above as a gift with purchase (unprompted) which put a hole in my samples theory (mentioned here) where I mistakenly thought that if you purchased skincare and makeup-y bits, you could only get skincare samples and makeup-y samples, and if you purchased perfumes then you could only get perfume samples. Apparently, the Sales Assistants just hand out whatever to whomever, whenever.

The Body Shop Collective Haul

As I mentioned in my previous The Body Shop haulage posts (here) and (here), I wasn’t going to wait so long between visits (so that I wouldn’t go crazy when I finally did go). I was at the Marina Mall branch of The Body Shop (even though it’s not the largest in the country, it’s my fave branch, for some reason) and noticed that they were having a sale. So I made a quick stop and picked up a few things (mostly skincare). I haven’t gotten a chance to try everything out yet, but there’s a few items in here that have already seriously impressed me!

MAC Sized To Go Collection

I’m completely obsessed with the MAC Mineralize Volcanic Ash Exfoliator (reviewed – here), and MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ (hauled – here) and since I’ve had such good experiences with the few skincare items that I’ve tried from MAC, I really wanted to branch out and start using their other skincare items, but I was hesitant on purchasing a full-sized item, lest it turn out to be like the Complete Comfort Creme (hauled – here) which was okay but nothing special, and consequentially ended up expiring before I got to use it all up.

Once again, I placed another order (little did I know that it was going to be my final order) on the official MAC website (before this happened) and picked up a few travel-sized products at $10 a pop and got to pick out free deluxe samples. Can you guess which is which from looking at the photo?
