Spotted at Sephora (Summer)

I visited Sephora again (seriously, they need to move the store to a more accessible area of the Avenues already, like maybe switch out Sephora with Next so people can access Sephora both from inside and outside the mall for quick drive-bys. I mean their current location is so out of the way from everything else!) and also, because I still didn’t get my Brand Gift (for reaching 200 points) even though I’ve already received the e-mail from the Dubai branch of Sephora. While there, I spotted several new displays (as shown above), new products and new brands!!!!

For starters they had a Mini Mania display (sooo cute!) mostly of cult fave products available in mini-sizes separated into 4 categories (all of which we’ll be taking a much closer look at, below) ranging from Speedy SportSunny BeachTrendy WorkFunky Party.

H&M Beauty Haul

I popped into H&M for a quick peek (since I was at the Avenues anyways) and noticed that they were having a Buy Two Get One Free Deal going on. Plus, with every KD 10 purchase you got an entry into the KD 10,000 raffle. I didn’t feel like trying on any clothes or even swatching stuff (so I wasn’t planning on getting anything) but then I spotted the Face Mask Collection (x3 Face Masks) and one thing led to another… and here we are.

According to my Sephora App, I only need 15 more points to reach 200 again, and qualify for the next “Brand Gift” (full deets here) or whatever it’s called. Also, I’d just received a text from Sephora that said, “Free Gift with every purchase for Eid“. Plus, the last time I’d been to Sephora was about 6 months ago (free Sephora Birthday Gift, here), so it has been a minute. I figured I might as well pop in to a Sephora, check out what’s new (photos here), grab a few things so I could reach 200 points and get some samples and a “Free Gift” out of it, in the process. All signs were pretty much pointing to… Sephora.

H&M Collective Haul

As I said in my previous H&M post, they were having some sort of promo going on (Buy Two Get One Free… possibly) on all Beauty products and such, so I decided to check out the Salmiya branch and picked out a few clothing items (hauled here). This post is a haul of everything else (eligible for the promo) that wasn’t clothes. Annoyingly, aside from the Curl Cream, I can’t find the rest of my stuff. I seem to have misplaced the H&M plastic bag (with everything in it). Obviously, this was after I took the pictures for this post. I’m not too bothered though, because I’m sure it’ll turn up… eventually.

OPI Mini Haul

Gargantuan Green Grape: Green kissed by the summer sun (creme finish)

Down to the Core-al: The beauty of this brilliant coral goes beyond skin deep (shimmer finish)

Bubble Bath: Sweet candy pink (sheer finish)

Also at the Perfume & Makeup Exhibition at Mishref Fair Grounds (October-November) I passed by the OPI booth and they were having a Buy 3 (nail lacquers) for 4 (kd) deal, whereas normally a bottle of OPI nail polish retails for something around KD5 each. Out of the pitiful display, I managed to spot these babies, and quickly snapped them up.

Bourjois Mini Haulage

At the Perfume & Makeup Exhibition (that took place at Mishref Fair Grounds during the end of October, start of November) I picked up a few things at the Bourjois stall. They were having some sort of deal where if you bought two items you got the third free*. I was prepared to keep walking past the booth, when the sales lady mentioned something about the Contour Clubbing Pencil Eye Liners (my favorite black pencil liner) being released in all-new shades! I just had to get one of the newer shades! I figured since I was purchasing something anyway, I might as well take advantage of the deal and pick out another something to get the gift with purchase (gwp). So I went for the Le Duo Gel (La Lacque Gel + Le Top Coat Gel) since I’ve never used anything like that before, especially not on my pitiful nails. For the third item, I picked up a So Lacque Glossy in a cute pink shade because… pink ^_~

* The third item had to be from the bargain bin selection (not any of the newer items).
