Nordstrom Haul (Jan 2021)

Everyone and I mean everyone, won’t shut up about Baccarat Rouge 540 Eau de Parfum.

With that being said, it’s pretty expensive.

So, after months of humming and hawwing, I decided to get the Travel Spray Trio.

I probably could’ve found it locally, but for that price, I wanted to make sure I wasn’t getting an expired or close to expired batch.

I found it on Nordstrom and since I was ordering it anyway, I picked up a few more things, to make it worth the shipping fee. It was not.

The latest reiteration of Angel Perfume shipped separately. Also, one of the perfume samples shipped separately.

I mean, imagine paying several Kuwaiti Dinars for a perfume sample (the one-time-use ones) lol

Nordstrom Haul (Nov 2020)

My last order from Nordstrom, which consisted mostly of Hair Care and Perfume, was back in the beginning of the year (here).

Over the course of that same year, I’d accumulated quite a few things that I’d wanted to purchase from Nordstrom.

Now that the year was almost at an end, on Nov 30 2020 I placed yet another online order with Nordstrom.

There weren’t all that many good deals, this time around.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Haul (Nov 2020)

Rather than pay a little extra money for possibly older products at our local Sephora, I figured I’d pay less money for fresher products, directly from the Anastasia website.

– 30% off all Brow Products
– 30% off all Palettes
– 50% off Glow, Contour Kits and Stick Foundation
– Add a Brush for $10
– Free Collectible Case with the purchase of 2 Palettes

As you can see, they had a ton of deals and promos at the time, and the ones shown are just the ones I took advantage of.

I picked up x2 Eyeshadow Palettes and x2 Liquid Lipsticks and x2 Makeup Brushes a Contour Stick and a Mini Setting Spray. The rest were all Brow Products.

Oh and Anastasia ships directly to Kuwait so I ordered these straight to my doorstep.

Nyx Haul (Sept 2020)

On September 28, after hitting up Etude House (haulage here), Mera and I walked over to Nyx.

While browsing in-store, we got the call telling us our table was ready, so we payed for our stuff and headed to Trapani for our dinner reservation (pics of us here).

Aside from my health issues, we were supposed to wear a mask (pandemic rules), so I kinda’ didn’t see the point in getting a bunch of makeup. That’s why my haul was more of a mini haul.

ColourPop 30% Off Sitewide Haul

Every year, I place an order with ColourPop during Black Friday/Cyber Monday (we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in my country, so the two are pretty interchangeable for me and I keep mixing them up lol).

I’d already have a mental list of stuff that I’d been lusting after, from all their many releases throughout the year and during Black Friday/Cyber Monday they’d usually have a 30% Off Sitewide, which makes it the perfect time to purchase those things from my list!

In fact, I’ve been ordering from ColourPop during every Black Friday/Cyber Monday consecutively since 2016!

I picked up 5 Pressed Powder Shadow Palettes (9-pan) granted one was out of stock as a single (Going Coconuts) and had to be purchased as a bundle that came with 2 Eyeliners (Créme de Coco Set) and another was part of the 3pc Ulta Exclusive (Night Owl).

Unlike their previous bundles and sets where I usually owned at least one of the shades, since I hadn’t purchased from ColourPop in a while, there was no chance of me getting a repeat product (the shades were all new to me), meaning I could finally indulge!

I picked up 3 of those Midnight Masquerade Bundles from yet another Disney Designer Collection and a Blush + Lite Stix Duo (In a Twitter) from the Bye Bye Birdie Collection and a Just a Tint Lip Duo (Coconut Kiss) from the Coconut Collection and 2 Faux False Lash Bundles (3pc each) one from the Bye Bye Birdie Collection and another from I dunno’ lol

I also got a Tinted Moisturizer and Concealer from their new Pretty Fresh range and stocked up on some Brow Stuff and Tools including a Dual Ended Brow Brush and a Sharpener. Lastly, I got 2 Lippie Pencils and an Ultra Matte Lip and an Ultra Glossy Lip.

That said, most of them could be purchased individually. I was just saving $$ by buying them as a bundle.

The prices for everything will be listed below (all the way at the bottom of this post).

Not gonna’ lie, I was a bit disappointed by the fact that even though I purchased them as sets and bundles, most of the items arrived in separate packaging (like they normally would if you purchased them individually).

Only Coconut Kiss and In a Twitter and the Disney Midnight Masquerade Bundles arrived as actual sets.

1st Morphe Makeup Brush Haul

On December 1st, I placed my first online order with Morphe!

I used to eye up their eyeshadows, back when they were just $2 each, but never actually ordered anything from them. I saw them grow and grow as a company, but wasn’t really tempted to purchase anything… until they released the Morphe X Brittany Bear 360 Nose Contour Collection.

However, rather than purchase it for full price, I decided to patiently wait for a sale or some sort of promo. At the time of my order, they had a 25% Off coupon code, which I used. Since this was my first time ordering from them, I decided to pick up a few (well, just the two) Makeup Items, while the rest were all Makeup Brushes (x20 individual ones) that I’d been lusting after.

The layout of their site was easy to navigate, had realistic photos that you could zoom in on and helpful reviews left by other customers.

The subtotal of my order was $114 with free shipping, plus an additional $10.16 for tax adding up to $124.16 in total.

Aside from the box that they came in getting a bit banged up, everything arrived safely intact.

MAC Mini Haul (July)

When I took the kids to see Toy Story 4 at Souq Sharq (fully gory deets here), we hit up Fantasy World and Bath&Body Works (dis) and MAC before the movie, and Sultan Center after the movie (dis).

I wasn’t even planning on going in to MAC (especially since I had the little monsters with me), up until I clocked the display for the crazy cute Limited Edition Fix+. One thing led to another and I ended up leaving with these 2 cuties! They were sorta’ repurchases and sorta’ not. I’m just really having a moment with all things Mini/Travel-Size! They’re cuter, cheaper (not necessarily cost-effective but whatevs) and easier to carry around or store!

Cosmo Place + Toy Story 4

I was going for a “candid photo” and ended up with dis lol Just roll with it.

Sunglasses: Louis Vuitton Aviators
Top: Mango Dark Heather Grey Printed Message T-Shirt (haulage here)
Jeans: H&M Light Grey Denim Super Skinny Low Jeans (haulage here)
Socks: Next Grey Leopard Print Socks
Shoes: Adidas Kanadia Trail Running Shoes in Dark Shale/Silver/Rave Pink (purchased from Shoes.com via Amazon.com in 2010)

Despite the fact that I was still traumatized from the time I took them to see Aladdin (full gory details here), I’d promised the kids that I’d take them to the movies to see Toy Story 4. We’d already watched 1-3 on Netflix like I’ve mentioned earlier (Popcorn Paragraph), so everything was still fresh for us. Plus, “Summer Camp” was over and the poor devils were getting restless.
