Beauty Buys + Freebies and Crocs

I received my purchase + freebies on Monday!

Caswell-Massey hand creme - $3.50


Napoleon Perdis 15 yr. anniv. lip palette

Jack Black intense theraphy lip balm

Laura Geller mini blush-n-brighten

The size of these freebies are very generous.
The lip balm size is decent. The Napoleon Perdis lip palette is bigger than I thought it would be. The blush is very pigmented. It has slight shimmers. Top half is a bronzer, bottom half is a blush. Good stuff!

This is one of those Sephora VIB perks.
A deluxe sample of Temptu Retouch Highlighter in Champagne.
Not sure what it is for or how to use it. LOL

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ had some promotions last week. One of them was 20% off $25+ purchase, plus free cosmetic pouch and a lip gloss, also 3 samples.

As you can see, I'm a sucker for freebies, so I ended up buying something there! LOL
I bought a hair mask, since I need one. I torture my hair with a blow drier 3 days a week. Then I also bought a chewing gum to reach the $25 minimum. It's a rose-flavored gum, ... it tastes BAD!! In the beginning it tastes okay, rose-flavored, kinda sweet, ...after 5-10 mins of chewing, it tastes blech!

Shea Butter & Vitamins Nourishing Hair Mask ($23)
Chewing Gum - rose flavour ($2.50)

Cherry Oil Lip Gloss in Coral ($17)
Free Sunflower Cosmetics Pouch
Wild Rose Instant Brightening and Illuminating Vitamin C mask
Wild Rose 24-hour moisturizing cream
White Tea cleanser

On Monday (Labor Day), I went to IKEA w/ hubby.
When we were browsing the fake plants section, I saw this woman, wearing a pair of black slingbacks. Somehow, I was really attracted to those flats. I thought they looked cute. First glance I knew it right away that those were Crocs because of the material.

I'm not a fan of Crocs and their original clogs design, but I've been curious about them because there are so many great reviews about Crocs. So, since I've finally found a style that I like, I've got myself a pair.

The slingbacks retail price is $29.95.
Luckily, has $10 off coupon code. So I was able to get them for pretty cheap. Plus, I got $2 cashback from eBates (10%).

Use this link to get $10 off of your purchase. The expiration date is unknown. It's supposed to be only valid on Labor day, but it still works fine.

Crocs "Olivia" - $19.95 shipped

The Crocs is true to size. Might be tricky to find the right size if you wear half sizes, since Crocs don't make their shoes in half sizes.
They are very comfortable. The tiny bumps on the base massage my feet. They make my feet don't feel sore/tired after a long walk!

  1. Whoa, what a great size for a sample lip palette.

    The Crocs actually look nice and cute compared to their classic shoe you see around. I think you might've even convinced me to get a pair.
