blog; Latest purchase.

Just finished ordering a bunch of stuff from ELF.com and using one of those spiffing codes to eliminate some of the cost. I've been on a bit of a brush kick and I'm gonna try out some of their Studio Line brushes! Hopefully I get them by the weekend, because I'm impatient~

I ended up nagging one of my friends to pick out stuff, too, since my coupon code needed a minimum purchase and I really didn't need $20 worth of ELF stuff. But I ordered these brushes:

๑ Studio Line Powder Brush (thanks to a very strong recommendation from Erynn of e.motion!)
๑ Studio Line Contour Brush
๑ Studio Line Angled Foundation Brush
๑ Studio Line Small Precision Brush

My total ended up being $19.45US, which is totally awesome, but I feel immensely guilty, because I rarely spend so much money at one go. (Yeah, I'm cheap...or "frugal" would be the better word...) I mean, I know it's my money to do with as I wish, but...man, $20 of makeup at one go is just weird to me!

Says the girl who dropped $40 on a MAC 130, right? I can tell you right now, that's probably a once-in-a-lifetime thing, unless I win the lottery. And even then!

Anyway, ELF's usually been good to me about shipping and not being a total jerk about losing anything in my order, so I'm waiting til I get my package! My friend Hilly ended up buying one of the Beauty Encyclopedias, and I'm excited to give it to her. It's the least I can do; she bought my tickets for this awesome concert we're attending next month! (I'm no good with online things, and the tickets were being sold on Ticketmaster.com.)

Whew! Now, I'm gonna take a shower and possibly rue my materialism.

I say this like I haven't been agonising over this decision to buy really inexpensive beauty things for two weeks. Which is exactly what I had been doing, by the way, lol.

  1. I'm exactly like that.. I hate spending money, but not to a "cheap" point. I just don't like it. I like to get things for less than everyone else.. I shop around ^^,

  2. Yeah, I wish I could just buy things without having to consider it seriously all the time, but I can't make myself work that way, haha. And most of the time I can wait months for some sort of BOGO or clearance sale. XD I totally shop around.
