Murale Holiday Haul 2016

By Wednesday, November 23, 2016 , , , , , , , ,

It seems like once a year now I max out my Shoppers Optimum points and run off to Murale to buy holiday goodies with them. It always feels good because I don't feel the guilt of spending my own money and get all the holiday stuff I was secretly pining for. Big win win for me.

Guerlain Meteorites Holiday 2016
This year like last year, I had to have the holiday version of Guerlain's Meteorites. These little pearls of joy are so hard to find, the store only got a few and I got the second last one.
 This years comes in a pretty blue and gold tin and has mainly pink large spheres and lots of gold mini ones thrown in. Too pretty for words, so just look. 

Nuxe Holiday Set ($55)

As the lovely sales associate at Murale helped me look through the store to figure out what else I should use my points on (this girl was good by the way), I saw some nice goodies from Nuxe. I have never tried the brand so I though this was a great way to try out a few different items from the brand. I was going to get a $15 set, but ended up getting this $55 set that has a full sized dry oil, mini candle, shower oil and body cream. I also got a mini dry oil as a bonus for spending so much on the brand at the store.
I'm pretty excited to try this set out, their dry oil smells so good.

Smashbox Light It Up 3 Palette Set ($55)
The sales associate really sold me on this set, I never would have noticed it otherwise. It is a acrylic neon box with three mini palettes inside. Eyes has 6 shadows, lips 6 lipsticks and contour has minis of their contour palette in it. It makes a good break up gift for stocking, but also makes a great travel set. This collection is a collaboration with California neon artist Meryl Pataky.
I always wanted to try Smashbox's contour palette, so now I can as well as a bunch of other nice new goodies I've been eyeing for a while. Also I have only heard good things about their new Be Legendary Lipsticks, now I have 6 to try out. Plus a cute neon box for my vanity.
So, that is all that I got at Murale, I went over my points a bit, but not by much and feel no guilt about this splurge.

Have you used your Optimum Points recently? What do you use them on?
