Belated Black Friday Beauty Haul, 2014

November 28 was Black Friday, one of the most amazing shopping days on the calendar. It falls the day after Thanksgiving in the US and, basically, it's a huge every-man-for-themselves style shopping event. I liken it to the Boxing Day sales here in Australia but I think it's a lot more hardcore.

Every year I say I'm not going to buy anything and most years I do so this year I just decided to go with it! To see what I picked up, including recommended retail prices and the discount I received, keep reading! 

Lipstick Republic had 25% off store wide so I took the opportunity to pick up a few things I've been eyeing off for a while
Benjabelle Mini Brush Tree // RRP $29.95 but I got it for $22.47
L.A. Girl HD Pro Concealer in Classic Ivory and Natural // RRP $6.95 but I got it for $5.22
OCC Cosmetics Colour Pencil in Hoochie // RRP $19.95 but I got it for $14.95
BeautyBlender Solid Blender Cleanser (not photographed - oops) // RRP $18.95 but I got it for $14.20
This discount has finished now, unfortunately, but you can always get 10% off at Lipstick Republic using the code 'BORNTOBUY'

Kiss and Make Up NY didn't have a discount on products, just free international shipping, so I took the advantage to pick up the NARS Velvet Lip Liner in El Agua 

BeautyBay had 20 - 50% off products, I believe, which I definitely couldn't pass up 
Stila Eyes Are The Window Palette in Soul // RRP $56.20 but I got it for $36.60
Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder in Medium and Celestial Powder in Candlelight // I can't find the RRP as they're currently sold out but I got each for $39.40
Sexy Hair Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri Wheat Leave In Conditioner // RRP $17.60 but I got it for $12.20
(The BeautyBay recommended retail prices may be a little off as their prices change as the Australian dollar does) 

Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder in Medium | Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Powder in Candlelight | NARS Velvet Lip Liner in El Agua | OCC Cosmetics Colour Pencil in Hoochie

The last of my goodies arrived earlier this week so I'm still playing with every thing. So far I am loving it all so expect to see a few reviews and Face of the Day posts featuring these products! 

(My cat just wanted in on the action) 

Did you pick anything up during the Black Friday sales? Let me know! 
Is there anything you'd like to see reviewed? I'd love to know that also!
