The Lipstick League Question of the Week:
Spill it! What beauty products did you buy during Black Friday and/or Cyber Monday?
G's answer: I exhibited an enormous amount of restraint (for me, at least!) during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Here's my haul:
Macy's - Moschino Fresh Couture Gift Set (couldn't resist since it was $25)
Amazon - both beauty boxes
Sephora - Black Friday sets including Nest trio, Clean Reserve trio, Ole Henriksen trio, Alterna trio and Clinique duo
Sephora - Cyber Monday Kat Von D Lock It Brightening Powder in Peach (hoping this will be a good fit for me for setting under-eye concealer)
Cult Beauty - the 2 for 1 full-size Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Clay Cleanser deal that was available on Cyber Monday
Ulta - nothing I can reveal here because I didn't buy anything for myself--only Christmas gifts for others
Nordstrom - again, nothing for myself; only Christmas gifts that I can't reveal here
