Ricky’s NYC Mini Haul

So…Ricky’s had a 90% off sale. *throws money at the screen*

Now, what should have happened was…I should have bought a few things when the sale was at 75%, and left the rest until the 90% sale. Let me explain. When it was only (only. lol!) 75% off, my favorite, FAVORITE liquid lipstick was on sale for around $4 and some change. Normally they are $17 each. Yes, I’m talking about Roulette by Coloured Raine. The original plan was to buy three or four as backups, and also get Marshmallow and Soul by the same company, as they were also on sale for just over $4. But I messed around and waited too long. I waited. And I missed out on Roulette. Just gone. No more. Sold out.

How I felt:

I should have known that it would be gone quickly. I should have known!!! Since I couldn’t get the one that I really, really wanted, I left it all alone. Until that 90% off sale popped up.

There were only a few things that I wanted, but even if I’d only wanted one product, it would have been justified. Because 90% off. 😉

Brands: LASplash, Coloured Raine, Jane Carter Solution, INGLOT, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Bioderma.

Both Soul and Marshmallow were on sale for $1.70. *blinks* From $17 each…to $1.70 each. SOLD! I picked up one of each, as well as LASplash Studio Shine Valentina, which was part of the Dia De Los Muertos Lip Lustre collection. I also bought a matte lipstick from INGLOT in #435, and an OCC Loose Colour Concentrate in Authentic. Then there were the free samples. A sample of Bioderma Sebium H2O, Bioderma Hydrabio Gel-Creme, and a small pack of Jane Carter Solution Hydrating Invigorating Shampoo.

Let’s break this down:

Coloured Raine liquid lipsticks – originally $17.00 each, bought for $1.70 each.

LASplash Valentina – originally $14.00, paid $1.40.

INGLOT #435 – originally $15.00, paid $1.50.

OCC Loose Colour Concentrate – originally $14.00, paid $1.40.

If bought at the regular prices, this order would have been $77.00. My total was $7.70 – adding on the shipping, the grand total was $13.69.

$13.69 vs $77.00 + shipping.

Yeaaaaaah, I think this was a good deal. Plus, I am super happy with my purchases. But the next time I see Roulette on super sale, I’m getting it right then and there. Yes, I’m still irritated with myself about that one. LOL!
