Yes another haul post… but hey one needs to use that 15% off at Sephora while one can right? MAC came out with a few collections today, so it only makes sense if I go check it out. Essie… well the salon had 50% off a bunch of Essie polishes! And I wondered into a drugstore… and walked out with stuff, as usual. So here are all the stuff I got!
First I went to MAC to check out their Reel Sexy collection. Their Tres Cheek collection was also out today, but I am only using NARS blushes right now so I didn’t really check Tres Cheek out. I did have my eyes on a couple cremesheen glasses that came out with the Reel Sexy collection, as well as the lipstick in Watch Me Simmer (repromoted from Cook MAC, Shop MAC in Feb 2012). When I tried on Watch Me Simmer… It reminded me a lot of Crosswires, and I did a quick comparison swatch on my hands, and they look extremely similar! Even the sales person was surprised at how close the two looked! So I decided to forgo the lipstick. I ended up picking up cremesheen glasses in Star Quality and Colour Saturation.
Next… I head to Shoppers Drug Mart too see if they have any cosmetics on sale, there was nothing interesting. I did pick up the Balea 3 in 1 Cleansing Cloths ($2.49 for 15 wipes) since it’s such a great deal!
Then… my day started to really look up! I went to get my beloved Toffee Nut Latte from Starbucks (you HAVE to try it if you haven’t! It’s absolutely amazing!), and as I was giving them my phone to scan, the barista said “our computer is rebooting, this one’s on us”. Seriously? Man this just makes me love Starbucks more! I must’ve walked in with great timing because the computer finished rebooting after I got my drink, and the person behind me had to pay!
And I totally walked by Trade Secrets in the beginning, because they kept moving and I didn’t even realize they were there, until I smell that nail salon smell… and I turned back and went in to check out some Essie polishes… and lo and behold the sales associate told me they had a bunch of them on sale for 50% off! Score! I went through those baskets like a mad woman… and I ended up picking up 4. They are all really similar, but they are different! They are all so perfect for summer I just had to pick them all up! And at $4.50 each, I had no excuse not to bring them home with me. I picked up Status Symbol, Too Too Hot, One of A Kind, Meet Me At Sunset.
Later on in the day, I headed to another mall (Yes I hit up two malls in a day), with pearlessence. We headed to Sephora, and we both came out with a good amount of stuff! I picked up the Claudalie “Our Favourites” set. Blissno9‘s review on the set was what made me decide I’m going to try it out! It comes with a lip conditioner (0.14oz), instant foaming cleanser fleur de vigne (1.7fl.oz), hand and nail cream (2.5fl.oz), and beauty elixir (1fl.oz). I also picked up the Ole Henriksen Walnut Complexion Scrub since I am in need of a facial scrub and I am absolutely loving the other Ole Henriksen products I got earlier! The last two things I got were NARS blush in Torrid, and Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Primrose. I also got samples for the Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation, and the MUFE HD Primer in #6!
I hope you all had a great Thursday! And I wish all an even better long weekend! Happy Easter everyone! 🙂
