My Sephora US Haul, Gifts with Purchase & Samples

The Fringe Benefits of Shopping from Sephora US is the Gifts with Purchase & the Samples. I carefully picked the samples and mystery/cyber gift bags this year. I had it all planned!
Last year, I willingly picked up skincare samples & perfume samples over makeup. Only to realise, how risky are these skincare samples.
Sephora Haul, $10 deals, Cyber Monday, Gifts with Purchase, Ciate Mani Month 2015
My Sephora Haul with Hourglass Ambient Lightning Powders missing :(

I had my heart stuck on Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Enhancer and I couldn't risk the shade matching. Second on my list was KEVYN AUCOIN The Celestial Powder Candlelight ($44.00 for 0.11 oz)
And to round off my order to $50, I added Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick Canvas mini ($10.00 for 0.03 oz)
I am so in ♥!

Later, I saw this Ciaté London Mini Mani Month ($59.00) and I ordered it without thinking of the weight and how much other makeup I would need to cut down. I selected Mistletoe Moments Sample Bag / GWP solely for Burberry Fresh Glow Deluxe Sample.
Last year, I was able to use the same code and get hold of all the bags they had to offer, but this time, one bag was restricted per account.

Ciaté London Mini Mani Month 2015
Cyber Monday Mystery Bag: This full sized Lancome Hypnose Volume Mascara!
During the Cyber Monday Sales, Sephora had these irresistible $10 deals. And I restricted myself only to 5!
Too Faced Sexy Lids and Lashes Set, tarte Fanciful Favorites Deluxe Discovery Set, Urban Decay Triple Threat Travel Pencil Set Smoky Matte Edition, bareMinerals Stay True All Over Face Duo and Josie Maran Argan Pure Cleansing Essentials.

Later that week, I knew I was going to receive a $15 off giftcode and I already had something on my mind.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette ($58.00 + $4.06 Tax -$15 off = $47.06) Yay!

Atelier Magnolia Post cards& Sephora Perfume Cards! These go into my collection.
I picked up Anastasia Brow Products too. You can check them here. I had to have all Anastasia Beverly Hills co-ordinated!

My Last order was mammoth (on my wallet) and I tried to pick most of the stuff I forgot or had to cut off. So I had an earful coming complimentary too! :D
BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector® Opal Glow On The Go Opal ($20.00)
tarte Tarteist Clay Paint Liner  ($24.00 for 0.21 oz)
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder Diffused Light ($45.00 for 0.35 oz)
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original ($20.00 for 0.33 oz)
I hurriedly added the Cyber Weekend Mystery Sample Bag bcz I was told not to shop anymore. -_-
I heaved a sigh!

Burberry Sheer Fluid, I think I need full size -_-
Truth to be told. Since I purchased from Skinstore & too. I wasn't charged Taxes with respect to the shipping city. With Sephora, I guess everything (taxes, mid 2016you damn!) covers up! :D
My sister who neatly received all these packages and packed them into one bag. :* Thank you!
But she forgot my Hourglass Ambient Lightning Palette & Individual ( which I assumed were lost.)
I should receive mid-2016with my New Ambient Lights Strobing Powders & Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette!

What would I do with out YOU?!
