My $0.49 Sephora mini-haul

This is a spinoff from Nouveau Cheap's post...

So, I checked my email last night and to my surprise, a Sephora $15 gift code was there waiting for me. I really didn't know what to buy, so I just ordered the 212 Sephora by OPI nail polish that I wanted. The price of the nail polish, plus the cost of shipping pretty much used up all of this gift code, but my whole total ended up costing me less than a can of soda...


Sephora by OPI nail color in 212 $9. I saw a girl working the Sephora counter at JC Penney wearing this color. I wanted to buy it then, but they were sold out. I just love the color. It's a smoky black with iridescent, copper, and gold glitter in it. I will definitely be wearing this for my upcoming holiday parties.

Now with every order, you get to choose three samples. Here are the ones I chose...


Gucci Flora By Gucci fragrance sample


Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment sample




Korres Face Primer sample




I used the gift code WISHME, and had a choice of either choosing a sample of YSL mascara, a NARS lipgloss duo in Striptease/Dolce Vita sample, or a 4 oz. Philosophy Inner Grace Perfumed Body Emulsion. I chose the YSL mascara sample.






So, how did I end up paying $0.49 for everything? It's simple...

Nail polish $9.00
+
shipping $5.95
+
tax $0.54
______________
$15.49

paid w/gc ($15.00)

total charged to my credit card: $0.49. I got five items for $0.49. Awesome! Thanks Sephora!

To any of you who are Beauty Insiders with Sephora, did you get a gift code? What did you buy?

I have a gift code as well, I haven't used it yet, but so I have to go in and check out what I may want to purchase.

The Ojon Hair Treatment is excellent as I have a jar of that in my bathroom. Word of caution though, it has Brazilian nuts in it and if you are allergic to nuts you can't use this product. But it does wonders for the hair!

Well it is all because of you that I had to get this polish. I have been looking for a darker, interesting polish. Not to glitteratti childlike and not too blah.

This was it! I bought it, I used it. I renamed it. Formerly known as Sephora 212 is now Black Gold!

It was my New Years polish. I think I had more fun because of it. HA!

Niki Cheapskate said...

^^^ that's awesome, and that's the same reason that i liked it because the glitter wasn't "too glittery".
