Sephora Friends and Family 2009 Guide for Hauling: Should Haves, Must Haves, and Everything Else
So you might be wondering, “What should I haul from the Sephora Friends and Family Event?”
Here’s a few details and suggestions of items I think are worthy of a look at during your spree’ing!
Check ’em after the jump!
Some rules of thumb when hauling are as follows:
Get It Now, It’ll Be Gone Later
I highly recommend, if you have the means and bucks, to get what you need now. Chances are it’ll sell out if it’s a hot commodity so don’t hesitate grab it while the grabbing is good. Normally I try to get things in three separate orders. One joy order where I get crazy with things I really want, one order for friends and family, and one order for items I need to stock up on. I always take my time with the last two when possible but the first one I normally dive right in with because in my experience once it sells out it’s difficult to come across until after the sale unless you’re lucky. For example, my bet is on the odds that the new Kat Von D Palette will probably be sold out by tomorrow, Wednesday at the latest. If you have the money to spare now definitely do your order so you aren’t crying over out of stock items later.
- Haul Palettes Like It’s the End of Their Existence
If you don’t own a ton of makeup and you want to own a ton, my suggestion is get more for less. Palettes are the perfect way to haul a variety of colors and items (blushes, shadows, etc…) in one slick compact. Palettes are already marked down to size but subtract an additional 20% off the total cost and you end up with a killer deal. Here are some of my picks that I think are worthy of your virtual cart.
Urban Decay Book of Shadows Volume II
- Stock Up On Gifts Sets, Get More for Less
Stocking up sets is always a good idea for a few reasons. Most sets are value priced plus the additional 20% off gets you an even deeper discount. The best part of gift sets is you get a slew of items to try out, many of which are even full size. On top of that if you aren’t loving one item out of say the 4 in the set you can swap it away, sell it off, or tuck it into a friend’s stocking for the Holiday. Perfect solution! Here are some sets I suggest getting.
Urban Decay 24/7 Super Stash
Urban Decay Hi-Fi 24/7 Set
Urban Decay Box of Potions
Bare Escentuals Rocker Eye Kit
- Korres, A Religion All Itself.
Although I could probably include Korres with gift sets I think they are an entity all there self. They started out last year releasing a small little set here and there but this year they have gone into sets on a grand scale. I’m telling you this because the sets are HUGE discounts plus 20% off you’ll be scoring an even deeper discount. Here are a few of my favs to haul during Sephora Friends and Family.
- Brush Sets, Because We Don’t Have Enough Already.
If you already have brushes you may be in the same predicament as myself where you are seriously addicted to hauling more sets of brushes…I can’t be alone here right? For those that are using Q-Tips or sponge applicators for application now might be a good time to haul brushes that are prepackaged together in gift sets as they are super size values….plus as always, that 20% off, makes them all the more tempting. One worthy of a haul is the Sephora Perfect Ten Brush Set which pretty much has it all plus with the discount works out to a rather nice deal. This is only one good deal but there are MANY to be had so if you’re shopping a new brush kit definitely break things down to see what’s the best value.
