Happy St Patrick’s Day everyone! Instead of going out and drinking/partying today, I decided to visit my boyfriend and went shopping (much better than getting drunk)!
Conveniently Sephora has a gift with purchase (BareMinerals), so that totally gave me an excuse to buy more things! I got a Dior Diorshow Heat Curl ($31CAD) since it has pretty good reviews and I have a problem with my lower lashes growing towards my eyes, so I really hope this will work! I just gave it a quick trial and it did curl my lashes out, now we need to see about how long it holds!
Apparently with the purchase of a Dior item at Sephora today (that’s what the sales associate told me), I also get a little sample of Miss Dior Cherie Perfume. I love love love little perfume bottles! They are super adorable so I was extremely excited about getting it!
The bareMinerals gift with $25 purchase has 3 items in it: Hydrating Mineral Veil Finishing Powder (0.75 g/0.03 oz), Mini Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara in Black (5 ml/0.16 fl. oz), Mini Pretty Amazing Lipgloss in Panache (2 ml/0.07 fl. oz). I have never tried anything from bareMinerals so I am super excited to try these products out!
Lilac/lavender polish is something I have been trying to get for a long time. I wanted a creme finish, from Essie, and it has not been an easy feat. There doesn’t seem to be any permanent lilac polish from Essie (at least not in stores I go to), and when it comes out with a collection, they are gone before I can even get to the mall! So I am super glad I found this in a little kiosk in the mall, it’s called Love & Acceptance. It’s from the 2012 Bridal collection (Love & Acceptance), which I don’t think is officially released yet since the sites I saw said it will be available in stores in April. I have no idea how this kiosk has it but I am glad it did, otherwise it will probably be gone before I can get it in April!
The last beauty-ish thing I got was the Moroccan Oil Treatment. I mentioned this in my January Wish List. I have only heard amazing things about this so I finally caved and got it. It’s kind of pricy (I paid $19CAD for 25ml of this). Lets hope this lives up to its hype! I have really frizzy hair when I put it up so hopefully this will make me look less like an lioness. Fingers crossed!
I also finally bought some new clothing items! I got this top from Gap. I’m normally not a big Gap fan but I LOVE this sweater. The sales associated called it a “slub shirt”, meaning it is kind of baggy, which is something I prefer over skin tight clothes for everyday wear. I know the weather is getting warmer, but it’s a pretty lightweight sweater that will be totally fine for the early part of spring, plus it was on sale so I could not resist!
I also finally got a new bikini! Pearlessence and I went shopping the other day and she pointed this out and I fell in love, and seeing it again today made me realize how much I love it!
So that concludes the haul! Have a great weekend everyone!
