Weekend finds

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

It has been a great sunny weekend around here. It has been quite a long time we got to see the sun, so it is exciting.

I also have a few fun finds (good buys) around town that I think I should tell you about :-)

Superstore has the whole Aveeno Positively Ageless line on for half price this week. The Daily Moisturizer SPF30 Lift & Firming is reduced from CAD24.99 to CAD12.49. Accidentally, the Coupon Board (near the front of the store when you walk in) has the $5 coupon for any Aveeno moistuzier, so I ended up paying only CAD7.49. So check your coupon board.

Walmart has Cover Girl Smoky Shadowblast for CAD6.97, about $2 off from regular price. Plus, P&G Brandsaver has a coupon for buy 2 get $3 off any Cover Girl products, so they came out to be CAD5.47 each. I got Citrus Flair (green and bronze) and Silver Sky (grey and purple). I think they are fun to use, but don't know how well they work yet.

And the Physician Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Mascara Duo just came out at Shoppers. The one I got is for brown eyes, it has a regular black colour in one end and purple on the other end for "enhancing" effect.

I paid CAD16.99, not the cheapest price. I'm sure it'll come out to Walmart and other stores with better price. The thing is the mascara comes with a Full Price Rebate pink sticker right on the packaging, which means you get it for free after rebate.

It's not the first time that mascaras come in colours, but I'm curious about the dual end and how purple would look on my lashes, so I'm giving it a try (for free) :-)

I am spending the day sorting out my nail polish stash, so hoping there'll be a collection post coming up :-) I also have a Shoppers haul from the x20 point event yesterday. Have a great day, everyone!


  1. Wooo~ After I saw your post, I went to 2 Shoppers immediately to look for the purple mascara. For some reason, only the purple ones were out of stock. It really sucks. I think I might end up buying other colors instead. If you can, please post photos after you tried on the mascara. I'm really interested to see how it works.

    Just so you know, I also found the rebate form on Physicians Formula website and it seems like they have this promotion until November this year. There is also rebates for other things. So even if you don't see the rebate on the box, there might be one on the website.

  2. Omg! I wanna try that mascara! Let me know how it goes.

  3. moonRabbit, it's interesting that the purple was the first to be OOS. Walmart might have it soon, hun. And thanks for letting me know about the rebate forms on the website.

    Perry, now you want to go bold with coloured mascara? Love it.

    And to answer both of you, yes, I'll test this mascara out and report back.
