A little while ago Well.ca was having a sale on some CoverGirl products, so I took advantage of that and got a few things from the website. This is my first time placing an order from them so I decided to post a review about them also.
First let’s get on with the haul, all the CoverGirl products I got were 50% off, including the Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in the shades Black Diamond, Constant Candy, and Perfect Penny (Right to Left). I originally got 3 of the CoverGirl Jumbo Gloss Balm, in the shades Rose Twist (top), Blush Twist (bottom), and Ruby Twist, which unfortunately was not packed with my package. Instead, they packed the Rimmel Stay Glossy Lipgloss in the shade All Night Long (more on this matter in a bit). I also picked up the CoverGirl Clump Crusher Mascara in Very Black because I’ve heard a lot of amazing things about it. To bring my total up to enough for free shipping, I picked up the Tresemme Nourishing Rituals Rejuvenating Mud Masque, since I have been quite into hair masks lately, in hopes to salvage my damaged hair.
When I found out they packed the wrong item, I was NOT happy, especially because I was super excited to try Ruby Twist. So I gave them a call, and first, I didn’t have to wait in line, and the customer service was really nice and helpful. After I explained what happened, she told me she would refund me for the Jumbo Gloss Balm that I didn’t get, and told me to keep the Rimmel lipgloss. I also got my refund within 10 minutes of hanging up, which I think is amazingly fast. Apart from this little fiasco, the whole shopping experience on their site was very smooth, and items shipped the next day, and I got them within 2 days. Overall I am very satisfied with my experience with Well.ca and I will definitely
Yeap. Another MAC haul. I went all out yesterday, after finding out that most basically everything from MAC is cheaper in HK than in Canada (taking tax into consideration). I swear this is the last haul I’m doing in Hong Kong, and I will be starting a project 20 pan when I get back to Canada! (I apologize for the quality of the pictures, but the lighting at the place I’m staying at isn’t the most idea for picture taking. I will be posting reviews on these when I get home, along with better pictures!) Continue reading
I think I have frequented Mannings so much that I should become a VIP there. I went there twice in the past couple days and picked up a few things (again). Continue reading
I did not actually need anything from Bobbi Brown, but yesterday I realized that their price for certain items are much cheaper here than Canada, so today I visited one of their standalone store in Festival Walk and picked up a few things! Continue reading
I don’t know why I’m starting this “series” backwards, starting at what I did last – right before I headed back to Hong Kong. I think it’s just the easiest for me to access the products that I just bought instead of rummaging through my luggage! (I also had 2 hours of sleep and just got home from the airport, so excuse me if I don’t make sense anywhere!)
The Incheon Airport in Seoul, Korea, has quite an impressive shopping area after you pass customs and security. It’s full of luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, Prada, Hermes, Miu Miu, Cartier, Tiffany & Co., etc. It also has a lot of “grouped” stores such as ones that has a bunch of cosmetic brands, or fashion accessory, or food etc. I am so glad I went to the airport early, because there are so much to shop here!

Oh my god. It’s so humid and hot here, I feel like I’m in a sauna all the time. Thank goodness for the air conditioner, otherwise I am pretty sure I would’ve had a heat stroke by now. I am not even kidding, with humidex it feels like 40+ everyday, and it’s a different kind of heat. In Canada (at least in Manitoba and Ontario), when it hits 46 on the super rare occasions, it is still much more bearable, because it is “dry-heat”, but in Hong Kong, the humidity makes it absolutely gross. I walked out for 5 minutes and I wanted to rush home and take a shower, yah, that’s how gross it is.
On the bright side, the transits, and the malls are very well air-conditioned in Hong Kong. On that note, if you ever travel to Hong Kong in the summer, make sure you bring a jacket with you (no matter how hot it is outside), because once you step into a bus, a mall, a restaurant, or any public indoor places, you will feel like it’s less than 20C. No kidding. It’s quite annoying, since it’s so easy for me to get sick when I go between high and low temperature.
Enough of me blabbing on about the less-than-enjoyable weather in Hong Kong, and onto my haul! Continue reading
So uhhhhh I did not expect myself to be spending this much money before I even leave the country… but hey it’s duty free! I’m actually sitting at the airport waiting to board (almost the end of my 7 hour layover at Vancouver airport!), so I decided to do a quick post before my long flight! Continue reading
Well… I saw a $4 off $15 coupon at Superstore for Covergirl products… so yeah that’s my excuse for now. I got another Lip Perfection Lipstick, because I loved my first one so much. This time I got it in the shade Heavenly. It’s a muted pink, and I think it will be very suitable for everyday wear! I am very excited to try it and see if it lasts nearly as long as the other one (Fairytale, reviewed here)! Continue reading
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! Continue reading
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? Continue reading
Yes… another Lush haul. It seems like Lush just manages to suck me into the store every time I walk past it. I’m always just like… “I wil just take a quick look”, and yet I always walk out with something! Continue reading
I was at F21 with my mom and my sister today and I saw some make ups at the bins at the check out. They are all so cheap! I ended up getting an eyeshadow duo for 99cents (on sale from $3.80), and then an eyeshadow quad for $1.50! I don’t really know how their qualities are but since they are so cheap, theres no harm trying right?! Continue reading
I was reading the flyers for the week… and bam I saw the sale for Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick and Lipgloss, each for $3.99! You can only imagine the excitement I was feeling! I was going to dash out the door and walk to the pharmacy (since this town is so darn small it takes only 20 minutes to reach the other side of the town, and the pharmacy was 5 minutes walk away!). Then I realized the sale doesn’t start until May 11! Good thing I didn’t embarras myself… But I made sure I went to the pharmacy this morning to get my hands on some of the lip products! Continue reading
Yes another haul… It seems like the malls just keep sucking me in. This time I headed to Holt Renfrew to spend the gift card I got from my last haul. I intended to get a Bobbi Brown’s Rich Lip Color SPF12, but apparently they are not available in Canada… WHAT?! So I ended up trying their corrector and creamy concealer kit. The concealer alone did not do much for me, but the combination of the two significantly reduced the dark circles I have! According to the SA, if you have pigmentations under your eyes (like me), concealer alone won’t do much since it has yellow undertone, and all it does is even out skin tone. The corrector, however, has an orange undertone, which will camouflage the brown/purple pigmentation in dark circles. I got the corrector in the shade Bisque ($22USD/$30CAD), and the creamy concealer kit in Warm Beige ($32USD/$44CAD). Continue reading
