Weekend finds

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

How was everyone's weekend? Squirt and I dragged our sleepy head out Sunday morning for some dim sum, much needed.

My Elf order when they had that 50% off sale came in last week, thought I can show you the stuff I got.

- SPF45 Sunscreen UVA/ UVB Protection in Sheer. Supposed to be a translucent powder, infused with Aloe Vera extract, Grape Seed extract, Vitamins A, C and E. Can't wait to try this out, extra protection will put my mind at ease at least
- Makeup Mist & Set with Aloe, Green Tea, Cucumber, Vitamins A, C and E
- Makeup Lock & Seal with a mini Blending brush
- Small Stipple brush. Considering the size, this would be more for blush or highlight.

Continue on:
- Nail polish in Fairy Dust, a flakie :)
- Matte Lip colors in Praline and Rich Red. I have heard good things about these, couldn't help but picking up a few to try
- Luscious Liquid lipstick in Strawberry. Didn't mean to order this one, as I have one or two from the last order, just didn't remember lol.

Still beating myself up for not browsing around a bit more, as I totally forgot to order the baked blushes and eyeshadows. Hate to pay shipping again to order more, so I'll wait it out.

I did participate in the surprise gift card event at Shoppers on Saturday, mostly for household items though.

Etival (a Canadian brand exclusive to Shoppers) is running a promotion until August 3 where you can get a free Urgen-C product (value between $20 - $38) when you spend $20 on Etival products. The icing on top is that the Urgen-C line is on big discount at the moment.

I picked up 2 of the Urgen-C Hydrating Surge mask with Multi-Pro, Vitamins A, E and COQ10 (reg. $20 each, 50% off), and get the Urgen-C Renewing Polishing treatment with Multi-Pro and Sepicalm for free (reg. $21, on sale for $9 right now).

I went to Sally with a sheer hope to find Orly Feel the Vibe collection but it's long gone. Saw a Nina Ultra Pro display with all neon/ bright shades. I'm not sure they are new, but I grabbed Punki Purple and Blu Blaze, on sale $3.99 each till the end of the month. By the way, found the Orly collection at Winners but the shades I wanted were not there. Check your store if you want some.

Couldn't resist Orly Sashay My Way on the display, $8.99 with Sally card. Missed out on the orange and green shade with similar glitter textures :(

The extra 50% off clearance was on when I went, so I got Orly Decades of Dysfunction and Buried Alive, $2.50 each.

Have a great Monday, ladies!


  1. Don't think you missed out on the green and orange Orly glitters, they only released 5 of the 22 that are coming out so far :)

    1. Really? Pheww, I'll keep an eye out for the next batch. Thanks for letting me know

  2. Sunday dimsum is the best!
    Ooh I'm excited to see you got the ELF SPF45 Sunscreen powder. Hope you do a review on it!

    1. Yeah, I don't have dim sum often enough. It's pricy here :( I'm hoping to do a review on the suncreen, if it works lol

  3. What!! I was at Sally's this week and was not given an extra 50% off the sale :( I I did have a coupon for $10 off a $10 purchase, so I guess it kind of worked out.

    1. That's odd, I thought sales are the same in all their stores. It lasted till last Sunday, I heard. How did you get a $10 off $10 coupon?
