The Lipstick League – week of 12.1.14

Question of the Week: So let’s hear it. Did you make any Black Friday/Cyber Monday beauty purchases? Spill the beans!

EauMG’s Answer: Well, it sure was tempting but I didn’t buy anything. Hard to believe, I know. There were plenty of great deals but I didn’t *need* anything so I didn’t buy anything. I’m trying to save up for a trip in the next few months. I’m amazed by my willpower at this time. What about you? Did you buy any beauty or fragrance items on Black Friday/Cyber Monday?

  1. In the sales I bought the DSH Orientals 1 sampler pack and a little 5ml flask of “Sunny Yellow”. I haven’t tried anything from this brand before but I’ve heard a lot of good things, and 20% off plus some extra samples sounded very good :).

    I also got some Paula’s Choice skincare; Resist Intensive Wrinkle-Repair Retinol Serum, Shine Stopper Instant Matte Finish, Resist Daily Pore-Refining Treatment 2% BHA, and Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator (night time moisturiser). There was 15% off plus free shipping.

    1. Those were the two sales that were the most difficult for me to avoid!!! 🙂

      I actually regret not taking advantage of the Paula’s Choice one because I’m low on a few items and I’m going to end up buying them anyway (like that BHA and serum). There’s also the Resist Intensive Repair Cream which I keep hearing awesome things about.

      DSH was a matter of want vs. need. I could buy a lot of stuff from that line and 20% off is rather generous.
