Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! I was lucky enough to have a 3 day weekend so I feel a little more refreshed than usual and not too cranky about it being Monday again!
I spent my Friday at the shopping mall. I spent waaaay too much money but I’m pretty excited about the things I picked up! If you read my Friday post you’ll know that I was out looking for some new spring work clothes and I was successful there (post coming later this week on this). I also hit up Sephora, Lush & Shoppers Drug Mart! Considering I just made a significant purchase online at Sephora earlier this week I’m a little scared to check my credit card balance. Anyway, here’s what I picked up at Shoppers Drug Mart:
Left to Right: Maybelline Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer ($10.79 CAD – On Sale); Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer ($6.99 CAD – On Sale), Essence I <3 Stage Eyeshadow Base ($3.49 CAD – On Sale); Essence Eyeliner Pen ($2.99 CAD – On Sale); Essence Superfine Eyeliner Pen ($2.99 CAD – On Sale).
So far I’m really impressed with the Maybelline concealer, Rimmel Primer and Essence eyeliner pen! Not too crazy about the Essence eyeshadow primer and the Essence Super Fine eyeliner pen.
I also picked up the Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub ($9.99 CAD) and I’m really liking it! Earlier this week I was contemplating the Fresh Sugar Lip Scrub but I was struggling with the price. This one was half the price and works great – so far.
Lastly my Sephora purchases:
Left to Right: Rouge Dior Brilliant Lip Gloss & Lipstick Samples (free) ; Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge ($19.00 CAD); Living Proof Instant Texture Mist (100 point sample); Sephora Collection Eco Biodegradable Sharpener ($7.50 CAD)
The sponge seems to work well to remove my makeup but I’m not sure it’s doing anything groundbreaking just yet. Haven’t tried the sharpener or the samples but I will at some point.
I plan on giving all these products at least a good week of use before I do a full review (only seems fair).
The rest of my weekend was pretty boring which was fine with me. I caught up on a lot of sleep, went for a few dog walks and cleaned the house. #exciting.
