Shopping makes me happy. Particularly when I can find a good deal. And I’m always looking for a good deal! However one of goals this year was to be more mindful of my purchases and only purchase things I really love. I’ve been pretty successful with this however stepping into Winners really puts me to the test sometimes. They usually have pretty good deals and then there are the times when you hit the jackpot and I could easily empty my bank account in a matter of minutes. My last trip there was one of latter, although I did restrain myself! I picked up a few things and thought I’d share them:
Solitare Swim Coverup – $29.99 CAD: I’ve been looking for a dress-style cover up and this one is pretty much perfect. The pictures don’t really do it much justice but it’s very flattering on! The fabric is also super soft and lightweight and I love the embroidery/crochet that’s on the sleeves and along the hemline. Can’t wait to wear this!
Living Proof Full Shampoo – $16.99 CAD: I had to blink a few times when I saw a bottle of this in the haircare aisle? LIVING PROOF? For $16.99!?I? They also had a bottle of the Full Thickening Mousse for the same price but I decided against that as I just purchased a couple bottles of my regular mousse. Now I have tried this shampoo before and I really liked it – but I couldn’t really justify paying $33 for it (although I was considering adding it to my Sephora sale shopping list prior to finding this). So for $16.99 I couldn’t pass this up!
Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss (Hypnotist) – $12.99 CAD: As mentioned above, sometimes you just hit up Winners on the right day, and this was one of those days. This Bare Minerals lip gloss was in one of those security boxes that are locked up and you can only see what’s inside, you can’t open it up and test it out (which I appreciate). I did a quick google search of this and when I saw some of the pictures, I knew I had to have this. This is described as a “vibrant holographic peach colour that shifts from pale purple to coral-peach with gold pearl.” The reviews were kind of mixed but I wanted to try it anyway. I was a little disappointed when I opened it as mine looked nothing like the pictures online. As you can see it’s still holographic but it’s mostly yellow. So I’m not sure if I have a wonky formula and that’s why it was there but either way I have worn this overtop of various lip products it definitely adds a neat shine/slight shift to my lips. Plus the formula is great – it’s not too thin or sticky and glides on nicely. It has a sweet mint scent and it leaves a tingly sensation behind after application. Not sure I’d fork over the regular price of $23 for this but for $13 I’m pleased with it.
Acrylic Nail Polish Organizer – $9.99 CAD: I’ve been picking these up over the last few months and now I have 3 of them. These are fantastic for keeping nail polishes organized and the slots are large enough to fit almost any size of polish. Plus the plastic is sturdy and durable.
Wall Art Set – $4.99 CAD: Winners had a couple versions of these but I loved the colour of these prints and can’t wait to find some white frames to place them in and hang them in my office. And $4.99 for 2 of them is just a steal.
