H&M Buy 3 Get 1 Free Eyeshadow Haul

Towards the end of September, I picked up 4 Eyeshadows or Infinite Impact Eye Colours from H&M (Avenues). I’d just finished having an early dinner with some friends, and had some time to kill (after we parted ways). So, I managed to swatch all the eyeshadow singles, at H&M (in that little “beauty section area” that used to have kid’s clothes before they renovated the place). Worthy of note, the Avenues branch had a much wider selection than the Salmiya branch. However, I did notice that the “makeup-stuff area” was already looking pretty ratchet (as evident by the state of the eyeshadow boxes, as shown). Also, the “mattes” and “glitters” were a bit chalky and less pigmented than the rest. I fell in love with 2 eyeshadows, but they were having a Buy 3 Get 1 Free Deal (as stated in the title of this post), which is why, I picked out 2 more (clearly can’t resist a “deal”). That said, these retail for only KD 3/500 each, making them super affordable, even without said “deal”. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting much, since these were so cheap wallet-friendly, but I was veritably blown away! The application was a dream (went on like buttah)! Wear-time was pretty great too! The shades I chose were stun-ning! Excellent quality over all!

I’m so in love with each and every single shade that I’d picked out!

Miaow Miaow Green Peas Snack

These Miaow Miaow Green Peas Snack are so addictive!

Case in point, I’ve been buying them in packs, ever since this past Ramadan, which is around the same time I discovered the Lay’s Forno Lemon & Black Pepper Baked Potato Chips (reviewed here) but unlike the Lay’s ones, I haven’t grown sick of the Miaow Miaow ones… yet. I came across these Miaow Miaow Green Peas Snack at the Faiha Co-op, of all places, and decided to grab just two, to try them out. After finishing an entire bag in a single sitting, I promptly went back to Faiha to purchase a pack (10 bags per pack) of this stuff, ‘cuz basically it’s kinda’ like crack (except it’s Halal). Shortly after, this stuff started popping up in all the local co-ops and now I can find it almost anywhere. Strangely enough, I’ve never spotted it at The Sultan Center though. If you ever happen to come across the Miaow Miaow Green Peas Snack, try it (I’ll add you to the list of people who are already upset with me for getting them addicted to this stuff). That said, I’m pretty sure there’s nothing remotely healthy about this stuff, so, if you’re into… you know… living, then don’t try it.

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!

Eyes flutter impishly in new Foiled Shadows, in luminous wet or dry shades that flicker like morning mist. Feathery pinks for cheeks brighten the day, imbuing you with a spritely glow. Cast a spell with rosy metallics for nails and pearl-lit nudes for lips, spinning glamour ’til the moon turns to sun.

Sephora Loyalty Program

Here’s everything I know about the Sephora Loyalty Program in Kuwait, so far. Supposedly, signing up for the Sephora Loyalty Program is free. However, you can only sign up after making a purchase. In my case, I was only at the check-out counter because I was getting the GlamGlow Holiday Set (hauled here) and a few of the newer (at the time) Sephora Face Masks, when they asked me if I had a Sephora Card and if not, would I be interested in signing up for one (as they were ringing up my purchases). Once you sign up for the Sephora Loyalty Program at the check-out counter at Sephora, they hand you a White Sephora Card. After 72 hours, your Sephora Loyalty Program account is finally activated (you get access to the site) and you get an e-mail with a voucher (that expires in 2 months) to claim your “Welcome Gift”… with your next purchase. Personally, I thought that was silly. Why couldn’t they have just given me the “Welcome Gift” when I signed up in-store? I’d just made a purchase. I was already there. I wasn’t about to drive all the way back to the Avenues (which isn’t exactly the most convenient of locations really) just to make yet another purchase at Sephora (so soon after my previous Sephora purchase), just to get the “Welcome Gift”.
