Beauty Haul! Space NK Sample Sale, L’occitane

Haul and experience

Anastasia and I have been picking the worst days to shop lately… we headed to the Space NK Sample Sale this morning and froze while waiting outside for two hours. The things we do for makeup! The doors opened at nine and we arrived at ten, so I knew we would have to wait a bit, but I really wasn’t expecting such a long line!

I had been hoping to pick up some Tata Harper and Sunday Riley skincare (two of my favorites!), or maybe a Diptyque candle, but nearly everything was sold out. Some customers were walking around with three overflowing baskets which was depressing.

There were tons of Malin & Goetz, Lipstick Queen, Kevyn Aucoin, and By Terry products left though and I heard they’re restocking on Thursday. I managed to find a few exciting things thankfully, in the form of these three lip products:

Here are two of the Lipstick Queen Butterfly Ball Shimmer Treatment Lipsticks in Float and Moment. The former is a gorgeous sheer nude while the latter is a pretty berry-ish red. They both have this fine turquoise shimmer running through them which reflects light like a dream and looks surprisingly natural on the lips. I’ve been wearing Float all day and love the look, although it’s definitely not a long wear lipstick. These originally sold for $24, so $5 is an amazing deal. Lipstick Queen discontinued them from their e-commerce site, but you can still find them at QVC.

The top swatch is a Kevyn Aucoin The Lip Gloss in Papavier. It looks patchy on my hand, but it’s evenly sheer and glossy on the lips. It also feels comfortable, almost like a plush lip balm. There were several shades to choose from and Space NK still sells them for $30, so again this is a great deal.

Anastasia (the sweetest) also brought me this body butter which smells like delicious baked goods. It has shea butter, cocoa butter, cinnamon, and marshmallows in it. I love the scent and texture, which feels rich but sunk in quickly. I’m going to have to see where I can find this in the States!

Lastly, I popped by L’occitane to check out their adorable Easter Eggs. I had also received an email for this free gift box. I love their Verbena body products and Almond Shower Oil, so I’m really excited to try these versions and a face cream. I also enjoyed opening this cutely wrapped box. Such a treat!

That’s it for this haul! I’m on a low-buy because I’m trying to finish some of the products I currently have open and my birthday is in a month. This was definitely fun though.

What have you hauled recently? And would you wait two hours for the Space NK Sale??
