Weekend finds

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

To keep up with the tradition, Monday is for my weekend finds. Can't commit I'd be shopping every weekend, but I'll post up if I do :)

Shoppers had their Bonus Redemption event, so I grabbed a few skin care items that normally are a bit expensive to splurge.

Dermaglow is 50% off (till June 17), thought it was the best time to shop.
- Hydration Fix Serum (30ml, reg. $40)

- Vitamin C Microdermabration system (reg. CAD110), comes with the Vitamin C Microdermabrasion (50ml) and Vitamin C Moisturizer with Peptides (50ml)

- RoC Multi Correxion Multi-action Anti-Age Moisturizer (50ml, reg. CAD42). This was on clearance for CAD28, not mentioning the bonus Multi-action Makeup remover wipe pack (25's, reg. CAD16).

More things found at the clearance section:

- Neostrata Instant Tightening Serum (30ml, reg. CAD84), on sale for CAD50, plus bonus Eye Contour Firming Cream (15ml, reg. CAD32)

- Neostrata Instant Results set, with Skin Renewal Peel Solution (50ml), Skin Resurfacing duo (Activator, 28ml and Crystals, 20ml) and Anti-Wrinkle Lip Enhancer (4.75ml). Valued CAD143.50, retails CAD72.50, on sale for CAD45.

This was supposed to be a value set at Christmas time, which explains the heavy discount. My store has a few left.

This week, Lawtons has L'Oreal nail polish on BOGO, I couldn't miss the chance to pick up all 4 shades from the Summer Siren collection, reg. CAD5.99 each.

From L-R: Blue Marine, Pink Shell, Coral Starfish and Yellow Seahorse.

Other than these LE colours, L'Oreal hasn't been coming out with new colours much. My stash of L'Oreal nail polish is small, plus the quality is inconsistent. I'll be trying these out soon, for sure, and keep you posted.

I also went to a clothing sale at Dress for Success. Proceeds to support their operation in providing professional attire to disadvantaged women, so it was for a good cause.

I found this Guess Promenade handbag near the door, in mint condition. A quick google search showed that it retails more than $100 (new, of course). I paid $25, couldn't be happier. It's soft and has lots of room inside.

I was looking through the clothes but didn't see anything in my petite size. Found this leather fold down purse instead. There wasn't any brand tag/ sign on it, so I can't tell who it was from.

I liked the brown leather and the pattern on it, plus it was only $5, enough selling points? This one is also in good condition, almost like new. Size wise, it's a bit smaller than the Guess bag above - as I put it inside the Guess to save space on the way home.

Lastly, found a pair of shoes in my size. Enzo Angiolini, brand new, $10 :)

I was happy to see that the heels on these aren't too high for me to walk on. After spraining my right ankle back in February, I'm scared of high heels which was a popular case with many gorgeous shoes in the stores right now.

Also liked that they have a bit of colour, a step up from my regular black.

Accidentally found these suede purple shoes from the discount rack at Walmart. They are from George, CAD9 (reg. CAD15, I think).

Big heels, not too high (again), and they are very comfortable to wear, well padded on the sole and sides. Lol, I'm getting old!

No makeup shopping this weekend for me. A quick note though, if you are a nail polish fan, you probably heard about the awesomeness of those new KleanColor chunky holos, retail on their website for $3.49. I have been asking Beauty Joint if they'll be stocking them (they sell KleanColor for $1.75, but had only the first 155 shades) and they finally get them in. I already placed an order for all 9 shades, plus a few extras. Thought I should let you all know. No benefits on my end talking about them, rest assured, I was just excited to share a cheaper source to get nail polish :) Have a great day!


  1. love guess this handbag is so nice .

  2. thanks for the heads up about beautyjoint. I ordered all the holos too :)

  3. ooooh great snags on the bags!
    I need to buy a new one for the summer...
    but thinking of getting a classmate to make one for me. she makes and sells leather goods, so I can have a clutch that is suitable for my needs...
    still thinking about that one tho~

  4. Nice! Love the polishes and bags! Very cute. =) New follower.


  5. Beauty Combat, it was a lucky score :)

    Karen, yay you did it. I forgot 1 extra shade and beating myself up right now haha
