Last December, I got a few things from Sephora PH for my birthday. I wanted to take advantage of the birthday double points promotion, birthday discount and because my birthday is on December, they had a 12-days of Christmas promotion going on as well. Great timing, right?
I’ve been wanting to try the ZOEVA eyeshadow palettes because I heard so many great things about the brand so I decided to pick up one of their Christmas release palettes, the Caramel Melange (PHP1464.00). Based on the photos, it seemed like it was a versatile warm-toned eyeshadow palette. Most of the palettes that I have tend to be more on the cooler side of the color spectrum so I definitely needed a palette that I can use to supplement that, so *poof*, add to cart.
I also wanted to get their Cocoa Blend palette but it was out of stock at the time. I was dead set on trying at least 2 palettes from them just to see if the quality and “bang for the buck” was consistent, and I whittled my choices down to two – the Rose Golden Palette (Php1106.00) and the Naturally Yours Palette. I ended up getting the Rose Golden Palette because I figured I needed more rose tones in my kit.
For my free gift with purchase, I received an Erno Laszlo pouch. Not particularly interesting, to be honest, but quite useful! It now houses my mini selfie light (don’t judge me for having a selfie light LOL).
As for their 12-days of Christmas promotion, I ordered on the first day, so I got a Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. Now I normally don’t use expensive mascaras because you have to change it every 3 to 6 months and it seems such a waste to spend so much on something you will only use for a few months but I really like the Too Faced one. Uh oh. :-\
All in all, I was very happy with my Sephora birthday haul! I like to think of myself as a Wais na Shoppingera (wise shopper), and I am especially glad that I got the most bang for my buck for this purchase. I have more points that I can use for future purchases, I got free shipping and I got 2 freebies. HA! *pats self on the back*
If you like shopping online, check out Sephora PH. They have a good selection (although not as good as the US Sephora), the prices are fair and the shipping is fairly efficient. If I remember correctly, I received my order within 5 days and that was impressive considering that the package came from Singapore. They have free shipping offers, free gifts with purchase, etc so you can make the most out of your shopping! #WaisNaShoppingerasUNITE
