My obsession with makeup and beauty products has been very well documented on my blog over the last few years. From buying makeup, to organizing my collection, and even making wish lists of everything I want to buy, I've done a little bit of everything on here when it comes to beauty products!
With it being so long since I posted on here, I figured I would start with something fun and exciting...to me, anyway! I recently got an email from Tarte about their holiday collection coming out and I made the mistake of clicking on the link to their site, which then led to me promptly falling in love with pretty much everything. Tarte is one of my favorite makeup brands because their products are high-quality, but also affordable (at least compared to some high-end beauty brands).
As an added bonus, their products are pure & cruelty free. Here is a snapshot from one of their emails about the ingredients they never use:
If you're thinking of checking out their new products, I would recommend taking advantage of the free shipping offer they have until tomorrow, September 4. If you miss this offer, they generally have free shipping on orders of $25+ (or maybe it's $50+), which isn't too hard to reach once you see how much great stuff they have!
Another great money-saving tip for any type of shopping trip is eBates. Have you ever heard of them? Basically, you go to their website and choose which store where you want to do your online shopping. They've got deals for most major online stores, plus even some travel sites as well.
Once you click on the link to that store you will see a window pop up saying that you're being redirected. And that's it!! You can do your online shopping like you usually would and checkout through that store's website. Depending on which store you're shopping on, you can earn cash back from your purchase, sometimes up to 10%!!
If you'd like to check out eBates, here's a link where you can access the site and sign up. Let me know in the comments if you try it!!
Okay...enough talk of sales & free shipping. Let's get to the actual makeup, which is probably why you're here, right? I ended up getting a few things on this shopping trip and I'm already counting down the days anxiously until my package gets delivered.
First up, the lip products (my fav):
Next, here are the two palettes I ordered:
And that's everything! Now that I'm putting it all on one page it doesn't look like nearly enough, but I can always go back and buy more if I 'need' to.
I hope you enjoyed my haul and maybe found some inspiration for upcoming fall & holiday makeup trends.
(Side note: raise your hand if you're super excited about fall almost being here! Me, too!!)
Let me know in the comments if you decide to buy anything I shared above. I'd love to hear your thoughts on Tarte, eBates, and pretty much anything else :-)
