I am so excited to share one of my favorite shopping sites online when I’m looking for beauty bargains! This is not a sponsored post – I haven’t been paid or given anything to write about them – I just had to share this site with you all because it’s that good.

I did write about this site last year, but then, I didn’t have many viewers then and I imagine the post floated out into the interwebs completely unnoticed so I thought I’d write about it again because you all need to get in on the amazing offers of this site!

First of all, they carry every brand you could want, especially more expensive designer brands like Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, NARS, Armani, Guerlain, Lancome, and Make Up Forever as well as other more indie brands such as Korres, Becca Cosmetics, OCC Makeup, and Bdellium makeup brushes. Aside from that awesomeness, they also offer drugstore brands at even lower price points than they already are at the drugstore!

Becca Cosmetics Balearic Love Palette

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen me post about getting the Becca Balearic Love Palette for $24.99 ( it normally retails at around $42-$45 ) and I got it from All Cosmetics Wholesale which is nearly half price!

The only downside to this site is that they don’t always have what you want. In fact, a lot of their items are marked down because they’re from last season or they’ve been discontinued and they’re selling off a limited number that they have on hand. Also, I’ve seen some brands are marked down a lot more than others. For instance, Dior is only slightly marked down on some items whereas Korres is marked down to nearly 1/2 price so it just depends on the item and brand. To get the best price possible, I would use google to price compare so you can ensure it’s worth your money.

You can check out a total list of brands at All Cosmetics Wholesale – here.

That’s All for Now – What Are You Excited About in Beauty Sales & New Products Lately?

I’d Love to Know in the Comments!

I just saw that Too Faced Cosmetics is currently having a sale and yes, I had to blog it!

Anyway, they’re discounting things up to 70% Off, which is insane and awesome all at once!

To Get You All in the Shopping Mood, Here’s a Few of My Favorites from Too Faced! 

Lip Injection Duo

Lip Injection Duo; $26 $10

I tried Too Faced Lip Injection wayyy before I started this blog which is likely why I never thought to review it. It totally burn-tingles going on, but I’m the kind of girl who wants plump lips so bad that I’m sitting there like ” Oo It burns so good! ”  Just kidding. It does plump lips, though temporarily, and it smells like cinnamon which I love! Up to you whether you like the tingly feeling or not.

Luggage Tag

Luggage Tag $10 $5

I have been wanting a Luggage Tag for ages so I might actually pick this one up. I just think they’re cute ways of accessorizing luggage and also a great way to figure out which non-descript suitcase is yours at the baggage claim. Just saying!

Natural Beauty

Natural Beauty Kit $29 $14

I really loved their eye shadow primer, Shadow Insurance, but that was a few years ago so no idea if they’ve changed the formula or not. If not, this is awesome! If yes, I am lost. I’ve never tried the face primer because, as you might know, I’m really paranoid when it comes to using face primers that have silicone. If you are too, feel free to check out this one or this one, both of which I love and one of which has silicone! I like this kit in spite of the face primer, though, because it’s a fantastic value and that’s really what a cheap girl like me wants – a fantastic deal. Yep. Thrifty is IN people! 😉

Little Black Book of Beauty

Little Black Book of Beauty Kit $36 $18

Lastly, they have this kit which I saw for $36 around this past December and have really loved the design of it, but was too cheap to spring for it at the time. Now that it’s literally half the price, I just might pick it up!

What do you think of Too Faced Cosmetics?

Anyone have a favorite product to recommend?

  I hope you’re all enjoying your Saturday and getting in some rest and laughs and all that jazz.

Have a Great Weekend!

Happy Boxing Day Everyone!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas, enjoyed some time off from work and school and things  with your family and friends and that you received some great gifts this year!

I know some people hate haul posts or whichever, but personally I love them a I’m nosy and I love to see what others own or buy for some reason so today’s post is a bit of what I received this year from friends and family (scroll down if you’d like to see the Boxing Day sales only!)

Here Are Gifts Received this Christmas!

I received this custom made ornate jewelry box from my boyfriend. Isn’t it beautiful? It looks like an old vintage trunk and the outside is leather material with embossed rose design. I really love this old fashioned style!

He also bought me my very own French press which can be used to make both tea and coffee. I’m super psyched about this one as I love both and I enjoying serving drinks in pitchers like this one. I’ve been using a friend’s french press up until now so I’m happy I finally have my own!

My mom got these amazing wedge boots for me! I really love the colors on them and they fit like a glove so they’re very comfortable and chic.

She also got me this amazing Ninja Blender + Food Processor! She has one herself (we both enjoy cooking) and I had the pleasure of using hers yesterday while we cooked Christmas dinner. It is AMAZING. This thing sounds like a jet engine blender, only not so loud, of course. It just sounds very strong and efficient and it blends things very quickly. I’m beyond thrilled to make my own smoothies and soups and things! I previously had to use this mini food processor which was quite horrible as it could only processor around 1.5 cups of anything at one time. Plus, it was one of those which you have to hold the button down on so it had recently begun to smell like burning plastic. Ew. Thank goodness for moms who know exactly what you need!

My step mom and Dad actually got me this lovely purse and it is SO adorable! It is by Bettie Paige ( the brand) and so the inside fabric is all black and white photo print of her modeling which looks really beautiful! Loving this handbag!

Lastly, I received a Coach clutch from one of my very best friends ( Thanks girl, if you’re reading this!) and I absolutely love it! It’s a really sleek design which I love for clutches and the burgundy wine color is amazing – it’s just my taste exactly.

I had such a wonderful Christmas and I’m so thrilled I was able to give and receive some amazing gifts this year and enjoy some lovely food and quality time with my friends and family.

Anyway, onto Boxing Day!

If you’re unfamiliar with Boxing Day, don’t feel bad. I only found out what it was last year. Basically, it’s the equivalent of Black Friday shopping only it’s mostly done in the UK, Canada, Australia and possibly Europe (anyone can confirm or deny this? not sure?). Many shops offer great bargains and discounts and there’s a chance to get some amazing deals and free GWP’s. I am a bit bummed come this time, but there seem to be a few Boxing Day sales going on online and a few after holiday or end of the year sales which you can take advantage of if you are in the USA or someplace else which doesn’t have Boxing Day.

Here’s What I’ve Found!

What did you all receive this holiday ?

Do you plan to Shop the Boxing Day or After Holiday Sales today ?

I just got this in my email and I’m so excited!

It seems like it’s been too long since I’ve had a chance to purchase from JB what with work, product reviews, and all that madness and I can’t think of a better time to purchase some of my favorites!

My favorite face wash from them – the JB Organic Face Wash, which I reviewed here, is likely one I’d pick up again. Some other favorites include their Blemish Clearing Serum (not sure why I haven’t done a review of this one!),  Blemish Clearing Cleanser, Green Apple Peel (Full Strength), Soothing Serum, Oil Free Moisturizer & their Organic Facial Rejuvenating Mask Their Stem Cellular Repair Moisturizer is good for dry- combination to dry skin types. Their Green Apple Firming Body Moisturizer is also really good! I’ll have to make a mental note to do reviews on all of these or let me know if you want them reviewed!

Anyway, Happy Shopping!

If you haven’t yet signed up for my Black Friday Beauty Giveaway, you may want to do so SOON as time is running out!
