Weekend finds

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

It is a good shopping week, thought I should post this up early so you have time to hunt around. It's the long weekend for Canadians, I will probably not around the comp tomorrow. Sunday post it is!

Exiting news first. This is what Canada has been waiting for, since the products were released in the US - Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains. Words on twitter confirmed that people had been seeing these showing up at their Superstore/ Loblaws, but I didn't see them until this weekend. It's too new that no price stickers have been put on it even.

Update: The price for these is $8.99, thanks to a few readers letting me know. Glad I can show you what the display looks like. There are slots for 12 shades, only one tester of Lovesick for the whole display. Therefore, make sure to check out swatches before you head out, so you know which shade you want.

While we are at Superstore, I might as well tell you a great sale they are running this week (if you didn't notice it in my Weekly flyer deals post - Coppertone, Hawaiian Tropic, Banana Boat, Ombrelle and President's Choice sunscreens are 50% off.

I got the Coppertone Water Babies  (lightweight) mousse SPF60 and Banana Boat Kids sunscreen lotion SPF100 (the second highest level of SPF I have seen, after the Neutrogena SPF110), price ranged between $4.50 - $5 after discount. Great time to go grab some, as you never have enough sunscreen.

At Shoppers, I found the whole Quo skin care line  on sale for $8.99 (reg. $15- $20). The SA confirmed that it was not discontinued, maybe a repackaging plan. I thought it was a good time to try these out.
- Quo Hydrating Night cream (50ml)
- Quo Brightening serum (50ml), and
- Quo Daily Moisturizing lotion (95ml).

There are also an eye cream and a cleanser, I think. Love the sleek metal packaging, the tube has a little window stripe on the side to indicate product usage, which is useful. I still don't like the jar packaging, don't get why they can't make it in the tube form with a pump like others.

More stuff on sale at Shoppers:
- Vaseline Total Moisture Cocoa Radiant lotion (295ml) $2.99. There's a stack of $1 coupons placed right on the shelf for it
- Organix Moroccan Argan oil (100ml) $4.99
- Organix Coconut Milk Anti-breakage serum (118ml) $4.99.

Organix shampoos and conditioners are on sale for the same price too but I had stocked up enough, so this time just some oil and serum. Can't recall seeing this deal in the flyer, or maybe I just missed it. Anyway, if you have been wanting to try out the brand, go now!

I was excited to find these Revlon Photo Ready Cream blushes on clearance at Lawtons for $3.87 each. I bought Flushed, Coral Reef and Pinched. Totally had a big lemming on them when they first came out, couldn't bring myself to pay full price :)

And Annabelle face products were 25% off this week, just the right time to bring Annabelle BB cream home to test out. As I mentioned before, the display has $2 coupons, good for any Annabelle BB cream product. That softens the price tag from $15.99 to $9.99. Those who don't lilve near a Lawtons, watch the sale to grab this goodie for a good price.

And finally, Ardene. The old Ardene outlet in town was moved down a few doors to become a huge new store (no indication of an "Outlet" anymore). But the deals they offer are really amazing. In the pic is 2 of the 5 pairs I got for $2 each (part of the 5 for $10 deal).

I'm still shocked at how much stuff Ardene has to offer - neon/ animal printed flats, heels, swimsuits, jewelry, clothing, etc. at reasonable prices.

Before I forget, Claire's 10 for $10 is on, plus a Bonus Buck offer: Spend $20 from now till August 25 and get a $10 off $20 card redeemable from August 26 till September 16.

Similar offer is Old Navy Super Cash - From now till August 29, spend $25 and get $10 Super Cash redeemable with $25 purchase between September 7 and 12 (or spend $50 and get $10 Super Cash to use with the next $50 purchase), in stores only.

Pick and choose what deals you want to take advantage of :)

  3. Finally the Lip balms are in.. haven't seen them around here though, the cosmetics section in my local loblaws sucks.

    1. I hope they will show up at other drugstores soon, we have to wait so long already

  4. Ah I got those cream blushes too. I was never a huge fan of Revlon but they have been coming out with some real winners recently. Thanks for the photo of the display of the Just Bitten Kissable-now I will know what to look for if/when they FINALLY get here!

    1. Drugstore products are at a high time right now, I'm so happy to see many great ones. I hope you can hunt down the balm stains

  5. Yessss finally the revlon balm stains! Soo excited. Hope they're not too pricey. You have to let us know what the Annabelle bb cream is like!!
