I am going to try to do a no-buy/low-buy until Imats in September. There really isn't anything I NEED so I am really going to be focusing on using up my products in my Finish 5 By Fall tag (spoiler alert-I have hit pan on 2 of my products I was hoping to hit pan on!). I am waiting on 2 deliveries though so hopefully they will be in this week and I will get them up on here by the weekend. There are 3 things that I am going to purchase if they meet certain criteria for me. They are Kat Von D palette kit, this was shown to me in an email from Sephora before they opened their Canadian warehouse, the Smashbox Masterclass Palette III, and Clinique Dramatically Different + Moisturizing Gel(this needs a GWP). Those are the only 3 things I am hoping to pick up until Imats. I will also purchase something if I run out of it and don't have something similar, seriously doubt I will run out of anything! I think with those 4 exemptions I should be able to do this! So with that in mind, and a bonus redemption weekend at Shoppers that happened last weekend I decided to have 1 last little haul. I had a few things that I have had my eye on for awhile that I wanted to try out, and what better way to do with than to get them for free!
On the way to the Shoppers in Masonville mall my sister and I passed by a Nine West store and they to were having a sale! I have been looking for a purse large enough to be able to take my iPad to work with me and to hold more stuff! I saw this one and it was what I have been looking for and the price was right! It is call the 'Rock and Lock' and the regular price on it was $135 CAD, it was on sale for $59.99, so of course I had to pick it up. I love this purse, it is big enough to hold everything I want it to but isn't so big that its bulky. I was so happy to have found this for such a great price.
I knew pretty much exactly what I was going to use my points on at Shoppers. Here's the list of what I picked up.
- Urban Decay Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush-I have been looking at this brush for quite some time but never picked it up, there was always something else to get instead. I am glad I picked up this brush, it is so soft and I am sure it is going to be great for buffing in liquid and powder foundations. I wonder how it will stack up to my beloved Sigma F80?!
- Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush in 'Fetish'-I was interested in trying out Urban Decays new blush since they came out but really couldn't justify buying another blush, at least not to my husband! My sister had picked up the color 'Rapture' a week earlier and she was quite impressed with it, so I decided I would give it a try. I love Tarte's blush formula so I am hoping I like this one as well.
- Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer in 'Light/Neutral'-This is again not a product I needed, but I wanted to try given all the rave reviews I have seen/read. I will be trying this out as soon as I finish up one of my other concealers! On a side note, is it just me? Or does anyone else find that Urban Decays names are a mouthful?!
Samples - With my purchase in Shoppers the associate gave me and my sister each a generous sample of the Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum to try. I have never tried anything from the Génifique line so I am excited to give this a try. My sister needed to run into Sephora to get a new brush head for her Clarisonic and they happened to have the Bobbi Brown 100 point perk in store so she was nice enough to get us both one, I have the best sister! At the checkout there the associate gave us both a sample of the Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask to try as well.
So that is it for my last little haul until Imats, unless of course my exemptions become available to me! I am really going to try to last until Imats in Toronto which is September 26, 2015, exactly 10 weeks from today. Any reviews I do until than will be things I have picked up before now or that my sister has picked up! I see many reviews being done over the next 2 months!
I think I did pretty good for only having actually spent the money on the purse, plus the tax at Shoppers. Is there anything here you would like to see a review of first? Did anyone else go a little Urban Decay happy at the last Shoppers Drug Mart Bonus Redemption event?
