Beauty Haul - Summer 2013

Time for another haul post, I haven't been posting any hauls for a while now but that definitely does NOT mean I haven't been shopping.

Estee Lauder - Beautiful Eyes Set
I bought the Estee Lauder Beautiful Eyes Skincare set for $65 at Macy's during their Estee Lauder GWP event. The set is still available and comes with a full size Resilience Lift firming and sculpting eye cream. I've been looking for a worthy eye cream, I've tried so many and still haven't found a "holy grail". I'm almost done with it, am loving it so far, full review should be coming up soon. The GWP was really nice, not only did it come with a Lilly Pulitzer desinged eyeshadow palette and cosmetic case set, it included a Time Zone face and eye cream as well.

I've made another order at! I'm surprise that this company doesn't get more attention then, their shipping to the U.S. arrived in a week! I made the purchase mainly because of the Shiseido Tsubaki Water. The set was $11 at, I've used the red and gold Shiseido Tsubaki lines, and really love the red line. Hoping this would work out just as well. =)

The only annoying thing about ordering from is that when you order final sale items, you have to order a number of other items to checkout. So I picked out a bunch of final sale items as well: My Beauty Diary masks, Etude House gradient nail polish set and blush and The Face Shop cleansing water. If you follow me on instagram, you'll see a swatch of this cute set. =)

Last up is my new Glossybox June 2013, the American Beauty Box. Yup, I fell for it again! Even with the horrible customer service I faced with my first GlossyBox, I decided to cave in after seeing it curated by Dallas Shaw which included a full size tarte cosmetics lipstick. The box was a specially designed by Dallas Shaw and looks so pretty!. This box was supposed to be the June box, but I didn't receive it till June 30! It was unfortunate that there were so many issues with these GlossyBox, but this box was really beautiful. It includes a set of Oscar De La Renta perfumes, a tarte lipstick, a Philips B hair shampoo, a c Booth's facial mist and a Sparitual nail polish. I loved that this box included department store brands. Hopefully review & swatches will be up soon.

That's it for my hauls, I'm already shopping at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale to haul some beauty goodies. Anybody else shopped the sale yet? What did you get?
