MAC + Sephora + Bath and Body Works + Drugstore Haul
June 2, 2012 § 9 Comments
Oopsies another haul… and a rather big one. I only meant to buy one thing today… and end up with way more! I am running out of my usual make up remover (Lancome Bi-Facil), so I planned on trying out MAC’s cleanse off oil, since people have been raving about it. The girl at MAC recommended Cleanse off oil Tranquil, the only difference is that it also contains lavender and camomille, which helps calm the skin and reduce redness, it costs the same as the regular cleanse off oil ($12CAD for 30ml). I also got sucked into buying a lipglass (i have no idea how), I have never tried the regular MAC lipglass, and it is pushing my limit in terms of stickiness, but the color is so gorgeous that I caved. I ended up getting it in the shade Lychee Luxe. It’s a coral-pink with golden shimmer. Perfect for summer time!
Then I headed to Sephora to check out what’s new, and I got 3 samples. They are all products that help minimize pores. I have a ton of skin problems, and right now I’m focusing on my combat with my ginomous pores. I got the Dr. Brandt Pores No More Pore Refiner, Dr. Brandt Pores No More Pore Effect Refining Cream, and Boscia Luminizing Black Mask. When I was about the leave, I remembered that I am travelling soon and need a more travel-friendly size of their clarifying lotion. I cannot live without this. Well, more like my skin will start breaking out if I don’t use this. I saw this set of the clarifying lotion (200ml), liquid facial soap (15ml), and the dramatically different moisturizing gel (15ml), all for a mere $14.50! I checked how much the clarifying lotion is alone (the 200ml size), and it was $15! So basically if you get the set, you pay less, and get more! I picked it up in the skin type 3 (combination oily). I also got two perfume samples during my check out, Marc Jacobs Daisy, and Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioia.
Next I headed to Walmart… just because it was there. Then I realized I am on my last bit of my setting powder, and my lovely little sister actually broke it… so I am in dire need of one. It’s the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Sandstrom. I have been through two of these already, and I don’t think I have ever used up any other make up products, so that says for how much I love it! And the fact that it’s a drugstore product makes it a huge plus! Then I saw a bonus pack of Covergirl Exact Eyelights. It has an eyeshadow quad in radiant blues, and an eye brightening mascara in black sapphire. It’s for blue eyes (and no I don’t have blue eyes), but I don’t really care for things like that. It looks like it has colors that I will be using a lot, and it’s a good deal, so I snatched it! I paid $7.97 for the quad and the mascara! Considering each of the items costs that much on their own, I think I scored an excellent deal!
I walked past Bath and Body Works and got “attacked” by people that worked there, who were giving out this coupon where you get a gift (up to $14), when you spend $10 or more! How can I resist that? I saw their new beach collection candles, and fell in love with the scent called Beach Cabana. It’s a fresh, clean scent that smells like laundry! I am not a big fan of floral, or fruity candles, so this is right up my alley. My sister wanted some body mists, and the mini sizes are 3 for $10, so we grabbed it in Paris Amour, Twilight Woods, and Moonlight Path. With the coupon, we got the candle for free ($12.50)!
So that concludes my haul today! I think it’s a really successful one, albeit the fact that I got a lot more than I need…. but hey I will eventually use them all! :p
