Shoppers haul

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

Last weekend was an awesome time to shop at Shoppers. I mostly stock up on favorites or items I have been wanting to get, conveniently are on sale, plus the bonus redemption/ $10 gift card offer :)

First things first, backups of my Annabelle staples. Like I mentioned on twitter, there are $1 coupons attached to the Black Collection display, and bonus 2,000 Optimum points on the purchase of any 2 of these. Extra savings!

You recognize these, don't you: Volumelips in So Sanguine and Tangerina, Smoothie eyeshadow pencils in Acaidasiac and Licoriche, CAD6.99 each.

At the bottom is Gosh Velvet Touch eyeliner in Banana. Gosh is clearing out lots of shades and products from its current lines, to make room for new products. Lots of Velvet Touch/ Let's Twist/ Extreme Art liners, Effect powders, lipsticks, glosses, eyeshadows, etc. were on clearance for CAD7 each. I freaked out seeing Banana there, fearing it's gonna be gone forever. Let's just say I grabbed more than 1 :)

Other good deals:

- Maybelline Fit Me foundation in #235, CAD7.99. This is the lowest price I have seen on this product. Shoppers doesn't carry my current shade (#310), so I went 1 shade lighter, hope it works when my skin gets lighter in the fall.
- Marcelle Face Powder in Translucent Medium, CAD9.99 (reg. CAD13.95)
- Marcelle Pressed Powder, also in Translucent Medium, CAD5.99 (reg. CAD13.95)
- Vichy Dermablend Corrective foundation in 45 Gold, CAD21.99 (25% off).

Not pictured is CoverFx cream foundation, CAD39. The store didn't have my shade, so I had to grab the wrong shade for the sake of the redemption, then exchange it later at another store.

The Fragrance clearance corner has some interesting selections. I grabbed a few as gifts, CAD19.99 each.

- Guess by Marciano EDP, 100ml
- Pink Sugar EDT, 50ml
- Hummer and Hummer H2 EDT, 125ml.

I'd say the sale prices are awesome on these, but testers aren't always available. Now if only Katy Perry Purr would make it to this corner, lol.

Aveeno is 25% off, not a bad discount. I got:
- Aveeno Positively Radiant Dual-textured Cleansing pads (28's), CAD10.49. Not cheap for the amount of pads you get, but I've heard lots of rave on youtube about this, and redeemed for it, so that's ok.
- Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturizing lotion, 532ml, CAD13.49. Humongous size lol.

Hope you guys checked with my weekly flyer deal post and scored yourself some good buys.

I also did some damage at Joe Fresh summer clothing clearance sale. Prices were as low as $2 for Ts, $7-10 for dresses. The problem was finding size at this point. There's a coupon for a free reusable bag with any Joe Fresh apparel purchase, if you need a bag to bring your clothes home.


  1. I've always wanted to try the lookse Marcelle face powder but I spotted the NYC one on sale for $1.25 if I remember well for I went for this one!

  2. I was on a super-haul this weekend -- I cashed in my Optimum points and got a bonus $15 off, so with a $50 giftcard, I had $150 to spend! And I had already gone insane over the $7 GOSH product (picked up a bunch of pigments and eyeliners).

    How is the Tangerina lippie? I was sizing it up in stores, but I haven't been love with the Volumelips before, so I'm curious about your thoughts on it!

  3. I've been meaning to pick up that MArcelle loos powder! Also $19.99 for that Guess perfume is awesome, I already have an almost full bottle but that makes me want to get another, as well as the Pink Sugar. I love Shoppers clearance fragrance section:)

  4. Going to SDM sometime this week to pick up some Annabelle Smoothies. Acaidasiac will be mine!

  5. I've been eyeing up those Annabelle lipglosses for so long, but every time I swatch them in the store I think it would be a huge PITA to take the product out having to squeeze it out of the packaging, the colours are really nice though.

  6. Gaby, I bet there are other powders out there to do the job. I just wanted to kill a lemming with Marcelle :)

    Tracy, thanks for the support lol

    Jilliterate, you went even crazier than I did with Gosh clearance huh? :) I like the easier squeeze tube, and Tangerina is just so bright, I'm a fan

    ct1980, so I made a good choice with those perfumes then? I couldn't really tell how they smell like when I bought them

    Ashley, yes that shade is a must :)

    Justine, I don't mind volumelip, actually I kinda like the soft plastic applicator. Just swipe and go. Hope you give it a chance
