If you noticed, though, "Naked" is capitalized, and since this is a mainly a beauty/fashion blog, that can only mean one thing...
... Urban Decay's Naked Palette!
I'm seriously not joking - I paid a whopping $4.38 for this (darn you, high CA sales tax) and here's proof.
- I used my Sephora Beauty Insider rewards card ($15 off a $50+ purchase).
- The palette was exactly $50, so I didn't have to buy anything extra and got free shipping since I didn't use a discount code - I paid with gift cards. That brought my total down to 35 + tax.
- I used Wrapp and got my friends to let me use the $5 Sephora gift card they got from their accounts! I collected seven more $5 gc codes, bringing my total down to just tax!
- Note: Sephora only lets you add 3 gift card codes at a time, but if you click to continue and then go back, you can add more.
- There's no problems with this unlike if I were to use multiple BI reward cards because those specifically say that you can only use one per order - people have gotten away with using multiple in the past, but many have gotten their orders canceled.
If you haven't heard about Wrapp or are unfamiliar with how it works, it's a "social gift-giving service." Basically you use your smartphone, download the app, and connect it with your Facebook account. There are gift cards (Sephora, H&M, Karamaloop, Plndr, and more) in various denominations (most around $5) that you can virtually send to your friends for free! You can also choose to add more money to the gift, which of course you have to pay for. The thing is that you can only receive one kind of gift card once - I couldn't have my friends all send me a Sephora gift card, I had to use theirs. Yeah, real friends let you use their Facebook accounts to get free gift cards ;) It's very easy to use, and I'm finding that a lot of people I'm friends with are starting to use it! If you're wondering why on earth businesses would be willing to give away free money, I'll quote the answer listed on Wrapp's FAQ. "Wrapp lets merchants appeal to potential customers directly instead of using pricey TV ads or other indirect methods. Of course, it’s up to Wrapp users to decide if and when they want to send any friends a free gift card." And that's that!
I believe there's only a few more days to use your rewards card, so hopefully this has been of help to those that haven't used theirs yet! I'll just end this post with a few more pictures because ugh, I am in love *_*
I am definitely set on my neutral eyeshadows. No more, I swear.
