Haulage! Urban Decay (April 2016)

Ohhh-kay. Way too much haulage this month, so I really have to slow down!

I’m gonna blame the lovely Ingrid of Curly.Spring.Blossom for half of my haul, and…um, my lack of self-control my love of lipstick for the second half. And my love of a deal for the whole damn haul.

I am not normally a huge consumer of Urban Decay products, though I did have mad love for their awesome nail polish and lipstick shades back in their earlier days. YES, I wore Bruise lipstick—the version that was purple and green and frosty! (Sadly, they’ve let their nail polish division slip by the wayside…probably ever since they started changing hands among various corporations; they’re now L’Oréal-owned.) But, recently they’ve been working on collaborations with popstar Gwen Stefani, whom I’ve long admired, and it wasn’t a hard sell when Ingrid told me that Sephora was running a sale on some of the UD × Gwen Stefani collection. This was right after the Sephora VIB sale, too, in which I didn’t partake, so I somehow felt it was all right for me to splurge a little!

The first part of my haul was from Sephora (Canada), and the second half was from Urban Decay (Canada)—huge rave for them, by the way. The order came super-fast and with three great samples!

What I Received
