Sephora Chic Week Haul!

Posted on Saturday, April 20, 2013 | 4 Comments

I've been trying to save my money as of late but when Sephora's Chic Week came 'round I just couldn't resist!


Sephora is offering 15% off your total purchase, but in-stores only for Canadian shoppers--how unfair is that!? It's already bad enough that some items can be $10, $15, maybe even $20 more than in the States when the currencies are so close to par!

Well, fortunately I found a way around this predicament :)

Because of the huge discrepancy in USD to CAD prices at Sephora, I like ordering my items through the US site and shipping it to a parcel receiving place in Point Roberts, which is not too far a drive from where I live. This way, not only do I save from the huge markup, but I get to use the 15% code! Yay!
   
Below is the damage this haul dealt to my credit card:

Merchandise Subtotal: $292.50
Promotion Discount:-$43.87
Tax:$21.13

Total:$269.76
 
BUT WAIT! I also used Ebates for the first time with this order which saves me an additional 4% off my subtotal, which comes to $9.93. 

If I did my math right (unfortunately I'm one of the few Asians not blessed with crazy math skills), I saved 18.4%! That's $53.80 on top of what I already saved from the USD to CAD price conversion! Yippee!

Chic Week lasts until April 22nd, so if you want to be sneaky like me, the promo code for online shopping is "CHIC"

I had the most difficult time narrowing down my product selection to reflect a reasonably-figured expenditure, but here it is:

[Skincare]
 
[Cosmetics]
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush (in Blissful and Exposed)
Yves Saint Laurent TOUCHE ÉCLAT - Radiant Touch (Oh no! I left this one out by accident!)


I'm super excited to try these products! You can expect to see a whole slew of review posts coming up soon!

Amicably Yours,
Emi

  1. Wow so jealous of what you got! I'm heading down to the states in a couple weeks so I thought I'd skip out on the sale. But such a good idea that you just got it shipped to point roberts. I need to get on that.

    Cant wait to hear how the products are!

    PS that amazon robot is sooo adorable!! :)
