Bougie on a budget

This post is the first in a series that will talk about getting the most bang for your buck with luxury products.

I’ll admit it. I can be pretty bougie. I think we all, more or less, have the potential. I like to call my approach bougie on a budget.  Ebates  (<< affiliate link) sent me an email that Bloomingdale’s was having a sale on Lâncome. Of course I jumped on it! Let’s all take a moment and look at this eyeshadow …


And this came FREE! All I had to do was spend $39 in Lâncome products (the lippies) and I got a six-piece gift set free! I am all over those “free gift with purchase” offers. Here’s my entire Bloomingdale’s haul, minus the eyeshadow above:

I am so excited to create a look with those eyeshadows. I am not a fan of finger swatches, or brush swatches, because neither really give a true impression of how the shadow will perform on the eyelid. Trust me when I tell you those shadows are PIGMENTED! And the shimmer is stunning!! Heck, the shimmer is stunning in the pan hahaha

This haul is another reason to love Ebates. (<< affiliate link) They let you know when their affiliates are having AMAZING sales. So not only do you get to take advantage of sales you might otherwise not be aware of, but you get to MAKE money while you do it! Sorry, this is NOT another Ebates post. I swear. But, because of them, I got a beautiful gift set, free, along with some pretty cool lip products! I’ll do some swatches tomorrow of everything. Even though I said I don’t love swatches haha, y’all just have to see those shadows at work!
