Hello everyone! I’m finally done with this semester, after yesterday containing two very long exams, which kept me on campus until 10 pm. So I’m free once again to waste time in whatever fashion I want =). Unfortunately, my plan today sort of depended on my house being empty, but for some reason my dad is home, and I have to wait for him to be done in our pathetically small kitchen so I can go make lunch… sigh. Anyways, while I’m waiting, I thought I’d write up this post for you guys.
As usual, on Sunday I went shopping with my best friend, but this time, I had a list of things I wanted or needed to get, and I actually have a decent looking haul post to show you, though I’ll admit its not all makeup. Here’s what I got (sorry for the lower quality picture, I took it with my phone at her house, since I didn’t have my camera):
As you can probably see, I got:
- UK Cosmopolitan from Chapters ($6.33 in Canada, with iRewards discount).
I prefer the British one to the American one, mainly because the American one feels a little bit like porn for women, however, I do have to admit that this issue of UK Cosmo has nearly-naked pictures of Princes Harry and William… heh.
- Three tubes of Zellers imitation Pringles (3 for $3), because they are cheap, not much different, and because I have a little bit of a problem =P
- Garnier BB Cream in Light/Medium from Shoppers (~$23 after tax).
I’ve worn this twice since I bought it, and I have to say I’m pretty impressed so far. The first day it was hard to judge how well it stayed and what it did for my skin, because I set it all over with my Sephora mineral powder, and also was wearing blush. But yesterday I wore just the cream and some mascara, and I have to say I really love how it looks and stays. I find I really don’t need powder, because I don’t get very shiny with this, and it lasts really well. However, if you are looking for something with good coverage, this is not the product for you. I’m lucky to have relatively clear skin, so I just need a little help with evening my skin tone, but this won’t cover much. Still, its a great product if you just need a little help!
- A perfume sample from Sephora, because Brit bought something, even though I didn’t
- A neon green sunglasses case from Urban Planet ($5).
I needed this because I never bring my sunglasses anywhere, because I hate throwing them in my bag to get scratched or broken, and I don’t like having to wear them on top of my head. This way, I know they’ll be safe even if they aren’t on my face!
- Jet Puffed marshmallows from Zellers ($1.50), really just because I haven’t had marshmallows in ages.
- An apple daffodil mini lotion from Bath and Body Works ($1).
This was an impulse buy; I was at the counter buying the sanitizers, and they were there for only a dollar, and this one smelled so good!
- Three hand sanitizers from Bath and Body Works: Warm Vanilla Sugar, Wildberry Hibiscus, and Cilantro Peach (3 for $5).
Why? Basically because I’m addicted. I don’t need more, I still have most of the 8 I got with that free coupon ages ago, but these smell amazing. The Wildberry one smells like grape Kool-Aid, and the Cilantro Peach smells surprisingly wonderful!
- And finally, Maybelline Turbo Volume Express Waterproof mascara in Very Black from Zellers (~$7.20).
I needed a new mascara, because my L’Oreal was running out. I didn’t repurchase that one, because, even though I like the formula, I really don’t like the rubber brushes, so I thought I would try something new. This, thankfully, has a nice, dense, bristle brush, and I’m absolutely loving it!
I also got a sandwich, salads, and Coke at the little sandwich place in the food court at Metrotown (the mall we were at):
And, there was an English bulldog puppy in the pet store. I couldn’t get a good picture of her, but she was so adorable, with her little speckled belly and bulldog-y-ness… Bulldogs are my favourite dogs, by the way, and it took all of my willpower not to leave the mall with a brand new puppy!
Oh, and this is what it looks like when me and Brittany start playing with makeup, apparently:
Let me know if you’ve picked up anything you’ve been wanting to try for a while, or what you think of this, or any other BB Cream. Or comment on whatever, I love to hear from you! Thanks for reading!
