Another haul post… this is what happens when I go to the mall two days in a row. Well I do have an explanation this time, London drugs (a drugstore that’s only in certain provinces in Canada) has a couple for $10 off any $25 purchase of makeup… how can I pass on that?
I saw Essie’s luxeffects topcoat in Shine of the Times, and I just snatched it and put it in my basket right away, I have been looking for this since December! I didn’t care it wasn’t on sale (it was $9.99), I just needed to have it!
The next thing I grabbed was a Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick, in the shade Fairytale. It was on sale for $6.99 I love the packaging of this lipstick! The shade is a gorgeous warm-based matte pink that has a hint of coral. It looked great when I swatched it on my hand, so I hope it translates as well on my lips!
I also got another Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 HR Eyeshadow. I got this in the shade Audacious Asphalt. At first I thought it was just a simple silver color, but when I swatched it, it looked so much better than in the pot! It’s a blue-based silver that has gold and silver shimmer, which looks a lot more complex when applied!
The last thing I got from London Drugs is an clearance item. It’s a set of Revlon eyeshadow quad and nail polish. The shadow is the Colorstay 16 hour shadow quad, in the shade Adventurous. I honestly don’t see how this shade is adventurous, it’s full of neutrals that will look great on any skin tone for an everyday look. The nail polish was the Revlon Colorstay Longwear Nail Enamel in Red Carpet. I don’t think I have ever seen this line of polish in the store. The first time I saw this was in Allison’s (amarixe) video. So I was a little surprised to see this in the clearance bin. It’s a classic red color, which I don’t really wear much, but for $5.99 (for both shadow and polish), I am not going to pass this. I’m sure I’ll find some time that I will wear it.
I also grabbed another lip product at Walmart. I went to a nearby Walmart another day to find this but all the ones they had were opened, so I was really glad to find unopened ones in the Walmart I went to today. It’s the Revlon Colorburst Lip Gloss in the shade Papaya. It’s a gorgeous coral with subtle gold shimmer. I saw a swatch on Temptalia and fell in love with this lip gloss! It reminds me a lot of MAC’s Double Dare and Star Quality, which are my two favourite lip glosses!
I swear after this haul… I will keep the amount of shopping to the down low, so I can go crazy when I travel! I have accumulated a bunch of products lately, so I am planning on doing more review posts in the coming weeks, what do you think?
