I have been extremely bad lately. I am officially on a no-buy for the next two months. And no, this is no joke I have to stick to this no matter what since I am a broke college student. Anyway, before my two-month no-buy I decided to go out with a bang. I went shopping today and picked up a bunch of things from Clinique, Express, Forever 21, and Target! I also have 3 packages coming in the mail as well. Anyway, I took pictures of the items I bought today and thought I’d share with you.
Note: they are awful quality pictures because they are either taken with my phone camera or my webcam. Sorry!
I’ll start with Clinique. I’ve been eyeing their Chubby Sticks for a while now, I was excited that Macy’s was having a GWP with any purchase over $21.50. When I got there, I was actually pretty disappointed with their selection as they had very slim pickings. They had about 1,000 Graped Up, quite a few Cherrys (or Watermelons, I’m not sure). I wanted the Whole Lotta Honey and the Mega Melon. I finally found the Whole Lotta Honey, but they didn’t have the Mega Melon. I settled for the Fuller Fig. I’m still not sure how I feel about the colors, but I plan on ordering the others, or at least most of them, at some point anyways so it’s not that big of a deal. Here are pictures and swatches of the Chubby Sticks and the GWP:

The Gift-With-Purchase included:
- Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion, 1oz./30ml
- Clinique Colour Compact: Colour Surge Eye Shadow Duo in Rose Wine – Soft-Pressed Powder Blusher in Pink Blush

I then went into Forever 21 because I saw online they were having a deal on maxi dresses, and I was wanting to find a maxi skirt as well. I found a maxi dress (as well a few other items), but no skirt, unfortunately. I also bought 2 shirts (same kind, just different colors) at Express because they were having an additional 30% off already reduced prices. It would just be rude to ignore those types of deals 🙂
Top: Express – $10.49 originally $39
Skirt: Forever 21 – $9.50
Forever 21 – $10, orinigally $15.80
Forever 21 – $9.50
Forever 21 – $5.80 (similar)
The last place I went to was Target because I had a $25 gift card I wanted to spend on a dress and a few shoes! I was not overly impressed with their dress selection, and I was shocked how much they were! I find it shocking that Target dresses are more than Forever 21. Anyway, they had a ton of shoes on sale, for those of you looking! So here’s what I got:
Target – $9
Target – $12.99
Shoes – $6.24, originally $24.99
Dress – $18
ELF Complexion Perfection – $3
ELF Studio Contour Brush – $3
Woo! That was a lot! As I said, I’m expecting 3 more packages so I’ll be posting those once they arrive. I am very pleased with everything I got and cannot wait to begin wearing/using it all!
What did you think? Have you done any hauls lately? Let me know!
