New to Me in January

Time to share with you my January haul!  I had some Sephora gift cards so I splurged a bit on products this month.

Sephora Purchase #1:
I won a gift card giveaway from @Jenn10orless on Instagram so I was super excited to splurge on some products.  I had been wanting a larger Z-palette so I picked up one of those.  I was going to try the Make Up Forever shadows but my IG friend, @aworldoffab, suggested I try the Anastasia ones instead.  I bought two shades in Sangria and Suede.

Sephora Purchase #1 Freebies:
I had points to redeem and decided to give these Clinique products a try.  This set included a cleanser, eye cream, moisturizer, and mascara.  I also got a sample of the Sunday Riley vitamin C cream with a sample code.  The other packets were my free sample choices.

Sephora Purchase #2:
As I said, I had quite a bit in gift cards from the holidays.  I wanted to choose some fun products that I probably wouldn't spend my own money on due to the price.  I bought the Caudalie Instant Detox Masque.  I have used foil samples of this before and loved it!   There have been quite a few Caudalie samples and deluxe sizes lately that I have tried so I decided to buy this Foaming Cleanser to try out as well.

Sephora Purchase #2 Freebies:
At the time I placed the Caudalie order, there was a skincare sample bag freebie.  So, these are all the products I received free with my order.  Excited to see another Caudalie product in there to try!

Sephora Play Box:
Ouai Hair Mask
Tarte Frixxtion stick
Clinique Black Honey lip product
Youth to the People cream
Tory Burch Love Relentlessly
I have to say that I wasn't too wowed by the Play box again this month.  Since I am trying to cut down on products and save money, I am seriously considering canceling this box.  We will see over the next few months.

Julep Maven Box:
This was my first month receiving this box since I subscribed around Christmas.
I received two polishes in Pacita and Evan.  I also got the lip crayon on Vintage Mauve creme.
I do know that I swapped some products this month but I don't remember what it was now.  I love that you can swap out nail polish colors and products with this box because then I can choose items I am more likely to use.  Also, you can skip months if you would like.  I am really liking this box!

Also purchased but not pictured:
Wet and Wild Shadow in Creme Brûlée
Maybelline brow precise fiber volumizer in blonde

Since my Sephora purchases were with gift cards, I only paid for the Wet and Wild shadow and brow product.
I spent $10.58 this month (not too crazy so that is good).
Including purchases and free samples, I added 43 products which is way too much!  And way more than I used up.  However, I purposely made my Sephora purchases when there was a sample bag included so that is really something I need to work on since I am bad about then using those samples.

What fun purchases have you made lately?

*All products were purchased by me.  All opinions are my own.  I was not compensated in any way for this post.
