I haven't done a haul for a while, tried to slow down a little in obtaining new pretties. It is not as easy as it sounds, considering Spring launches are everywhere.
I gave in at Shoppers this weekend for the lip products I wanted. Even though they still cost more there with a sale, they are on bonus points and I got $10 gift card with the weekend promo.
Also bought two L'Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine stains in Berry Persistent and Infinite Fuchsia, CAD11.69 each (CAD10.46 reg. at Walmart), also x15 points. The display was still pretty full, so I assume that it was just put out a few days ago.
I'm glad Shoppers now have stocks on these products, as some of you guys told me you didn't have a Walmart nearby. The $10 gift card promo was over, but there's a new printable coupon for 8,000 points with $50 purchase this Wednesday.
I found the Essence Cherry Blossom Girl collection (supposedly 2012 Fall collection in Europe, lol), its tiny display was almost empty already.
- Shimmering body powder in 01 Hello Glitty, CAD3.99
- Blush in 01 Asian Sensation, CAD2.99
- Lipstick pencil in 01 Cherry Cherry Girl, CAD2.49.
Essence's special collections are always LE, with limited amount of products on display, so basically you snooze, you lose!
There is nothing extra special about this particular collection, except for the cute packaging and reasonable price range. Quality isn't bad either. Enough to sell me :)
I remember how much of a craze the promo pic of this collection caused way back when, but then swatches did not wow me much. I didn't get any, but if you are a fan and have been waiting for it, get to the store now.
The bottle shape of this collection is kinda interesting/ weird, the bottles didn't even line up well on the display. Very different from the regular Sally Hansen designs.
I also went to Sally in the weekend to use my $5 I got from renewing my card last month.
I took advantage of the promotion of free China Glaze with purchase of Seche Vite top coat (CAD9 with Sally card now). My choice was Flip Flop Fantasy (in the middle), nothing fancy. I didn't get it when it first came out, have wanted it for a while.
Found Seche Collage Overlay (on the left) in a small display near the top coat, CAD7.99 with card (reg. price). It was so pretty in the bottle, I couldn't resist.
Since the original moisturizer that got some rave reviews, Hemp has come out with many new scents. I picked Argan Oil (to defy aging and leave skin beautifully soft and bright, according to the label) and Chocolate Cherries (with hydrating Hemp Seed Oil, to leave skin silky soft).
Bonus points for the pump and plastic seal on the nozzle - no spillage, no contamination.
I made it over $35 to earn a 30% off to use on February 23, now the question is what to get then :) The promotion is still on till the end of the month, if you still want to go for it.
