If you saw my post last week, I summarized the great shopping at the Canadian National Exhibition. Today I wanted to go over the items I picked up on this trip plus have a little giveaway, just cause!
The first items I picked up were from Philosophy – these were $5 each or 6 for $25. I decided on Hope in a Jar and Miracle Worker which are both moisturizers. Also I was intrigued by the Hope in a Tube firming cream – can’t hurt to start now! Finally the Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti-Aging Retinoid Solution which typically comes with pads for application. All in all, these 4 products retail for approximately $200 and I bought them for just over $16.
Now as I do my own nail art I typically don’t buy products like these but I do like to use them as accent nails. Plus the Sally Hansen Salon Effects Strips are my favourite brand of nail strips/stickers. Tried to find the most intricate designs and I’m pretty sure I accomplished that. These were a great deal at 3 for $5.
These three lip products were purchased at the Lips and Tips booth. I love the Revlon Pink Ice lip gloss (so much so that I’ve actually used up a WHOLE TUBE). Decided to stock up as they were $3 each. The L’Oreal lipstick is from their Limited Edition Project Runway collection a few years back. It is a very unique colour – dark berry/plum with shimmer.
More holy grail products were found during my hunt – the Maybelline Define-a-Brow brow pencil and Rimmel Moisture Renew Gloss in Rose Cocoon. The Rimmel Wake Me Up highlighter was a steal at $1.25 that I just had to try it (it is very similar to Nars Copacabana by the way).
I always go a little crazy for polishes at the CNE. These were 7 for $8. Went for very unique shades/textures as I own most of the basic/must have polish colours already. I picked up NYC Disco Inferno and Strobe Light, Tweedy, Quick Jeanius, Chop Chop Copper, Blue It and Grey Area from Sally Hansen.

Lastly, I was able to find the exact colour I want to dye my hair next – Olia Dark Garnet Red – for 2 for $10.
Now as I was surrounded by deals I thought I would pick something up for a lucky follower! I picked out 3 designs of the Sally Hansen Salon Effects. This giveaway is open INTERNATIONALLY! And I always like to throw in a few surprises with any giveaway I do, if possible.
Contest will run until September 5th 2014.
til next time…
