Hi everyone!! I hope my fellow American gals had a lovely Thanksgiving. I went Black Friday shopping for the first time. It's been a long time coming, lol. I was very much against the whole idea for a long time-- the crowds, the fights, the whole leaving your house at a ridiculous hour to go shopping-- but C kind of gets excited about it and has gone without me and had fun. Last year we were at my parents' house till almost midnight, so we decided to stop in at the Walmart on the way home to see just how crazy the scene at the most notorious Black Friday shopping spot really is. So after driving around waiting for a parking space to open up, we headed in, laughed at the madness and the lack of genuinely killer deals, and went home.
This year, I figured we'd be up anyway, so why not check out some of the smaller, more local places opening at midnight? So, C stood in line with me at Ulta at 11:15pm. (<3) Here's what I left with...
... Stila Kitten Classics and Too Faced The Triple Threat, mini sets of both brands' top sellers. So, I get to try bronzer (the Too Faced compact in the upper middle) and primer for the first time and play around with some pretty layering shades, for the price of a drugstore find! I'm pretty excited about my little haul. My city isn't terribly huge and people were, for the most part, really cool. I even had a gal offer to grab me a Lorac eyeshadow palette if she saw them first. ;) Alas, my store apparently only received two, both of which were gone before the sale even began... hmmm.... They were sold out in no time online, too.
We wanted to check out Old Navy afterward ($5 fleece, yo!!) but the line, an hour after they opened, reached to the end of the sidewalk, and to C's happiness, I decided hekk no on that one. So, home we went, after one store, and checked out some online deals, instead.
Did anyone else go? What did you get? Know of someone who actually scored one of those Lorac palettes?
Thanks for reading! :)
