Beauty Haul!

Photo on 2014-04-25 at 11.18 PM

Hey All! So today I explored Marshall’s, which is owned by Winners, and though I didn’t buy anything there, I saw some great stuff. Becca foundation, Chanel concealer, Deborah Lipman nail polish, and Edward Bess lipgloss were among some of the things that particularly stood out to me. I will hopefully return at some point, as I feel it’s the kind of place one needs to check out a few times before deciding what to purchase. The prices were also significantly discounted from their original prices. So I’d check it out if you’re looking for a bargain. The one downside is some of the products had been opened by people who were testing them.

I also went to Shoppers Drug Mart and Target today, and ended up getting a nice haul with some pretty decent deals. From Shopper’s, I got a 3.4 fluid ounce Marc Jacobs perfume in dot for $20, 21 with tax. This is a steep discount, as this size is normally $105 from Sephora. I’m pretty sure it was a tester, as they only had one of each of several perfumes for the same deal. Either way, it was mostly full, and I got a total bargain! Also, I’ve had a rollerball of this perfume for quite a while, so I knew I’d like the scent and wear it often. I also got two nail polishes from Shopper’s in the two for one deal I mentioned in an earlier post. I got two Maybelline Colorshow nail polishes, in 165 lust for lilac, and 021 neutral statement. The former is a pink toned, blue based lilac that I think will match my Mac Saint Germain lipstick quite well. The latter is a beige cream colour. This was a great deal, as nail polish can be quite expensive.

From Target, I bought the Revlon new complexion one-step compact makeup in ivory 01 beige. It’s a cream to powder foundation with spf 15 that I will be reviewing in the future, so keep posted for that update. It was a slightly cheaper price than what some drugstores are selling it for. I also got an NYC lipstick in mahogany for $1.99, that is a gorgeous, vampy,  burgundy colour. NYC is a great option for cheap lipstick, that is highly pigmented and minimally moisturizing. I’m pretty sure the Wet N Wild brand uses the same formula, as I’ve tried both, but I can’t be 100% on that.

Overall, I’m very happy with my purchases, and will be doing reviews of them in the near future. If you have any questions, or have a suggestion for a product I should review, please leave a comment below. 🙂
