Weekend finds

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

It has been a busy weekend! It rained both days with sunny breaks, but shopping turned out really great :)

With the Super Redemption event at Shoppers in the weekend, I couldn't find the L'Oreal Glam Bronze display at all, so no LE Infallible eyeshadows for me. They are on sale for $5.99 until today (2-day sale only), so if you see them, grab them.

What I ended up redeeming the points for, all on sale:
- Maybelline Dream Bouncy blush in Hot Tamale - $4.99 (the Colour Tattoos are too, but I have all the shades I wanted already)
- Quo by Orly nail polish in Orange Pop, on clearance for $5
- L'Oreal Colour Riche Balm SPF15 in Rose Elixir and Caring Coral, $5.99 each (2-day sale, sale ends today, hurry!)
- L'Oreal Colour Riche lipsticks in Intense Fuchsia and Royal Red, also $5.99 each (2-day sale)
- Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-touch sunscreen SPF110 (yes, we now have the highest SPF in Canada), $9.77
- Batiste dry shampoo in Blush (200ml, a little bigger than the old version 150ml), $7.99.

Then at Lawtons, some Color Club shades were on clearance for $1.75 a piece. I didn't get the sets from Winners before, but buying them individually is better :)

- Color Club Foiled collection (Fall 2011): Antiquated, Foil Me Once, Lumin-icecent, Perfect Molten and Cold Metal

- Color Club Backstage Pass collection (Fall/ Winter 2011): Take the Stage, Fame & Fortune, Platinum Record, It's A Hit! and Wish Upon A Rock-Star.

Don't know if I keep them all after checking blog swatches.

Onto what I have been really "passionate" about lately - jewelry!

There is a HUGE sale at the Bay for their previously-discounted Expression jewelry line. Items with last ticketed price of $10 or less would be $3.99, and items with last ticketed price of more than $10 would be $6.99.

- The flower collar necklace in the box was originally $30, yellow-tagged for $14.99, I paid $6.99 (almost 77% off)
- The other 3 bracelets were $20 each, down to $9.99 and are now $3.99 each (80% off).

Of course I came home with more than what you see in the pic :) The sale is on until Thursday, so you still have time to check your the Bay for some good scores.

I was at Sirens checking out their sale racks, happened to notice their jewelry section and was amazed to find some really trendy pieces. And the prices are unbelievable.

The necklace is $7, and bracelets are between $4-5. The spikes with hematite beads, studded wraps are so in right now, I couldn't have enough. So, one more reason to love Sirens, seriously!

Hope your weekend went well. Squirt and I saw a rainbow on Saturday, brightened our day tremendously.


  1. Ugh.. now I'll have to head back to Shoppers today. You are such an enabler! LOL

  2. Great haul! I went haywire for redemption day and got so many lipsticks!! I didn't know about the L'Oreal Infaillible sale! I'll definitely pick some up today! Thanks for the heads up :)

    1. Try to stop by every Friday to check my flyer deal post, as all good sales would be on there and you won't miss any :) But redemption is great all around eh?

  3. I didn't have enough points :( LOVE SDM, tho! greatest loyalty program out there in Canada. I enjoy the Le Balms, too, and hot tamale is one of my fave dream bouncy blushes! Now I have to go and get me some 110 spf as I'm the color of paper and already have dark spots from sun damage in my teens :(

    1. There'll be next time to redeem, I think Shoppers does the Super Redemption twice a year, plus many regular bonus redemptions. SPF110 does sound good for paper coloured skin :)

  4. oh Batiste is on sale??
    dang, need to hunt them down in my area then!
    I tried out a few other brands, and does not cut it like Batiste can.

    Your Bay had better pieces. Mine just had a lot of rings, but they weren't that great looking

    1. Hope you found some, the Blush scent for some reason is bigger in size compared to the other 2 traditional scents. It sucks that your Bay didn't have many pieces, I'm totally sucked in by mine

  5. Awesome haul! You have busy girl this weekend. You found some awesome deals. Love the bracelets!

    1. Thanks Raina, I was lucky to find some great deals :)

  6. the 3 limited edition shades are permanent in the US collection, and hourglass beige is identical to iced latte. the amber rush and bronzed taupe are on clearance for 5.50ish at the jean coutu by my house, maybe if you have access to other drugstores check them too. if youre are really interested you can message me if you want me to pick them up for you (i own them both and they are really lovely)

    1. Awww that is a great deal. Thank you for the offer, but Canada Post scares me with their high postage. I will check other stores :)
