Hi beauties!  I’m sharing a massive beauty haul today of the goodies I picked up during the current 15% off your entire purchase at Sephora sale, a 20% off my entire purchase coupon at Ulta, as well as some new spring polish.  Spring is such a fun time to shop for new beauty items with all of the pretty, soft shades available after the dark months of winter.  I share my new finds in the video below:



The Sephora sale is still on and all Beauty Insiders can get 15% off all purchases between now and the end of the week.  Here is the coupon codes and sale dates, which vary depending on which level of Beauty Insider you are:

  4. Started to watch you last February because I was try to make up my mind about getting another shih tzu , I had lost my shih tzu Chloe two years before that, she was 16 years old and I has heart broken about it, so I started to watch you and Winnie and I totally fell in love again, so in July I brought home a puppy shih tzu named her Lyla, she’s the best ,she will be 1 year old this May!!! I soooooooooo happy I got her! Now I watch you all your videos!

  5. Dear Jen, I just started watching you and I think I’m probably older than your average viewer, but I think you so SWEET! I think of you as my pretend internet daughter! I hope you are well and life is good. -kk

  6. This video was so much fun! Great to see ure hauls. I don’t wear much make up but love to wear more neutral colours so loved a lot of what you posted. I am trying to experiment in more pastel shades on my nails to be more spring like! Loved the set you bought! Thanks for sharing and the chance to win…so kind of you! Looking forward to more haul videos!xx

  7. Thanks for the giveaway! I took advantage of the 15% off sale also but have not gotten my order yet as I placed it online. I purchased the Two Faced Chocolate Bar Pallette. I cannot wait to play with it!!!

  8. Love your haul, especially the Zoya polishes!!! I’m super stoked about the giveaway! I hope I win, so I can give it to my daughter…she’s really been wanting this palette 😀

  9. Wow, what an awesome haul and sale!!! Love seeing a clinque product in your sephora bag 🙂 I’ve just purchase their skincare 3 step system for dry/combination to try… Love watching your videos and love how brave you are to share your life with us! You are so inspiring and am loving watching vlogtober 2012 (only discovered you a couple weeks ago so have gone back and watching older videos) 🙂

    Love from Down Under (aka Australia)


  10. Great haul! I just bought the Anastasia brown pencil and love it. If possible, please review the glam glow mask. I walked around with it in sephora, but didn’t want to spend the money without reading/hearing more reviews!

  11. Yay!! Your hauls make me so happy! I love watching them! Thank you so much for sharing!

    Will you please do a video or follow up blog post then on some of the products from your haul? Especially the GlamGlow and some of the other products that are new to you? I would love to hear your opinion on what you think of them!

    And you are so generous all the time too, doing giveaways when you do hauls! I enter all the different ways all the time! Fingers crossed one day I will be lucky!

    1. I always talk about my faves from hauls in my subsequent monthly favorites. People are asking about the mask a lot, so I’ll be sure to talk about it in my April Beauty Buzz regardless of if it’s a favorite or not.

  12. Hey Jen,
    The Naked 2 Palette is so nice of you!! I have always wanted to try these…just have two daughters and usually end up buying for them….unless it is polish!! 😉

    Thanks for all your ideas!! You have really gotten me out of my shell and trying a few things these days for myself!! 😉 And just like shoes…a girl can never have too many lipsticks/lip products or nail polishes!! 🙂


  13. Jen, thanx so much for sharing your haul. I live in Canada and sometimes its hard to get a hold of the products you show but i jotthem down and search for them when I do head over to the states . Naked 2 line is REALLY calling my name since you last showed it. I also had a question about the nail drops you mentioned, what exactly do they do, I’ve never seen them before. Also what top coat or sealer do you wear to make your nails last. Thank you so much again. 🙂 Take care.

    1. The drops helps me manicure set faster. Right now I’m using the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri top coat. Love it 🙂

  14. Hi Jen,
    Just wanted to pass along an idea for those asking about the mask. I heard about it awhile ago and picked up a sample at Sephora for my daughter to use. She is in the midst of teenage acne and this seemed to help pretty quickly. But because it was so pricy I knew I wanted to wait until the next sale. I also wanted to make sure it was something she would use as part of her skin care routine. So the last few times we were at the mall, we’d pick up a sample from the store. We love sephora samples! It’s a great way to try many of their products without spending money. I have found that I make smarter purchases after having a chance to try them out first, especially on skin care items and fragrances. So, I highly recommend picking up a sample for those wondering about glamglow!

  15. love watching your videos! Hoping to win the Naked 3 palette – I was looking through the Ulta flyer and said I’d love to get one, and my daughter said it would be so cool for me to have a Naked palette!

  16. Well. thanks to you, I placed my Sephora order today and got to use my 15% off coupon! I’m a Beauty Insider and I don’t always pay attention to the emails. I’m going to try one of the Buxom lip glosses you talked about in the video. Have a great day!

  17. Thank you for letting us know about the Sephora coupon! I am now fighting the little devil on MY shoulder telling me, “you have a coupon! go ahead…” =)

  18. Great Haul ! I know the little devil wins quite often with us when we shop. Your giveaways are so fun. You are always thinking of others. Thanks for sharing. You look so happy and excited…..You have a Glow about you. Your lip color looks very nice on you.

  19. Hi Jen, great haul video! You’re skin looks really good in this video, what foundations are you using lately?

      1. Oh, I love Dior foundations and concealers! Just looked and the Diorskin BB cream is marked down 10% through Monday the 21st on! 🙂

  20. I had to get some of the Ambient Lighting Powders and Blushes. Trying to decide if I should get both the It Cosmetics palette and the Lorac Pro from Ulta. Not that I need any more palettes, and I have shown great restraint so far but….its fading…quickly.

  21. I love your hauls!!! Watching them makes me so so so happy!!!
    I often fantasize that I could buy things you show us… (No Ulta, no Sephora, no Urban Decay etc. here in Bosnia 🙁
    I would love to win the Naked 3!!! You are very generous!!! Thank you so much for sharing!
    God bless you and Don and Winnie 🙂 🙂 🙂 Greatings from Bosnia and Herzegovina :* :* :*

  22. Hey Jen
    I am much older than most of your viewers, I would guess. I have been watching you on u tube, and I must say, it has been a pleasure to see such a poised and down to earth young women. Keep up the great videos.

  23. Nice haul! Those Dior lipsticks look beautiful! The packaging is awesome too. I have a few of the Dior Addict glosses and I love the formula so I would recommend you check them out if you haven’t already. (I’m a new subscriber, so idk if you’ve mentioned them in older videos.) You seem like a really nice and genuine person! 🙂

  24. Hey Jen! I just wanted to know when you will have the winners up by for the Naked 3 palettes. I don’t want to rush you but I’m just curious to see if I won or not. Hopefully I did because that palette is absolutely gorgeous!!! Thanks!

  25. I”m a little late to the party but remembered your post this morning and wanted to share anyway. 🙂

    I ended up doing my spring Sephora haul while we were in Vegas earlier this month and it was fun to shop a different store than the ones I’m used to frequenting – I was pleasantly surprised to receive some great product recommendations! I purchased the Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder foundation, the amazing Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer, a mint green gel polish for my SEPHORA by Opi system, the Bliss Steep Clean mask, and Philosophy’s Take a Deep Breath Moisturizer.

    On that note, we are about the same age (I’ll be 32 this July) and I have also been experiencing a sudden adult acne flareup after enjoying a few years of consistently clear, albeit sensitive, skin. I was wondering if you are still using the Origins routines you posted last year, or if you’ve made alterations to that within their line? I have found over the past few months that the acne-fighting regimens I turned to in my late teens and early twenties are now much too harsh for my slightly more mature skin, which is very frustrating!

    1. I feel like I am ready for a skincare change-up and am looking into different brands to try. I am still currently using Origins mainly but also started using a Dr. Hauschka toner lately. If and when I do a real change-up, I’ll post a new skincare routine update.
