I Live to Shine


Weekend finds

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

It is an exciting week for shopping deals, which is a great therapy for the little breakdown I had in the weekend.

A quick note to my American readers, Lancome is offering 50% off on their Color Design eyeshadow quads when you buy any mascara at a Lancome counter. Canada is unfortunately not included.

Another note for my Canadian friends, Real Techniques brushes have made the appearance on my Walmart's shelf (see picture). If this little town of Halifax has them, the chance your neighbourhood does too is quite high. At this point, only the brush sets (3, as pictures) are available. Single brushes will be up on Farleyco (direct link) shortly, while waiting for retailers to fully hop on the wagon.

At Shoppers, I combined the x20 points with $75 cosmetics purchase with some good sales. First is the 50% off on selected Cover Fx products.

The flyer only mentioned Conceal Fx but CoverFx announced more products to be cleared out - Radiant Fx powder, SkinPrep/ ClearPrep/ BritePrep/ EyePrep primers, brush cleanser, brushes and kits, at both Shoppers and Murale until April 19, while quantities last.

I picked up the Redness Treat + Conceal kit (reg. $45), ClearPrep (reg. $39) and the 160 Cream foundation brush (reg. $38).

Note that there wasn't any sale sign at the CoverFx section in my store as of yesterday but the products scanned 50% off. It's safe to check at the scanner first before paying. The x20 point event is going on all week, so you still have time :)

Quo brushes are BOGO (the free item has to be the same as the paid item), so I got two of the crease shadow brush (reg. $13 a piece).

Selected Rimmel products are 30% off this week, I picked up some items I have been eyeing for a while:
- Wake Me Up foundation in Soft Beige, reg. 12.99
- ScandalEyes Waterproof eyeshadow stick in Blamed Blue, reg. $7.99
- ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal liner in Nude, reg. $7.99.

The Nivea lip butters are in the flyer for 25% off but my store won't get them until some time in March :(

Remember when I told you about Layla's new displays of Caviar and Bubbly Effect at Lawtons?

Well, it's time to say goodbye as they are like 75% off, $3 - $3.75 a piece.

The three on the left are Caviar Effect in 12 Samba, 11 Flamenco and 03 Valzer. I looked up the names on these as all they had on the cap is the numbers.

On the right are Bubbly Effect in 04 Cherry Muffin, 02 Black Forest and 01 Meringue Pie (names on the bottles this time).

On the top are the Vaseline Lip Therapy lip balm in Cocoa Butter, on sale for $1.79 (reg. $1.99) and buy 2 get 4 bonus Airmiles. The cuteness is overwhelming :)

I also made a quick stop at The Body Shop to use my $15 off $40, expiring at the end of the month. Got some gifts which I don't picture here :)

These items are all on sale, thought I should let you know, in case you need some.
- All 100ml hand creams are $10 (reg. $20), so I got the latest scent - Absinthe
- All the EDTs in the Voyage collection are $20 (reg. $25) if you have a LYB card. I got Amazonian Wild Lily
- Love Etc. heart-shaped solid perfume is $5 (reg. $10), and
- Soaps are 4/ $10 (reg. $4 each), Chocomania is a great scent.

Then with a purchase now, you'll get another $15 off $40 coupon on the receipt, good for the whole month of March.

Bath & Body Works has the Signature line on 5/$30 or 3/$24 (excluding EDTs and Forever Red). With the $10 off $30 coupon in a previous receipt, I paid $20 for 5 products (64% - 76% off). This is a lot better than the B3G3F sale they offer quite often.

I got the Golden Sugar scrubs (226g/ 8oz, reg. $16.50) in Twilight Woods, Paris Amour and Moonlight Path, with duplicates.The product is quite new to the line, available in only a few scents for now.

The packaging is gorgeous, with the gold cap and the lower part of the tubes. The pattern at the top is quite sophisticated and eye catching. For $4 a tube, don't mind if I do (haul) lol.

Also, the 3-wick candles are 2/$22, if you need any. I'm not sure how long these sales last, please call up your store before heading out.


  1. Ooooohhh you got ur bubble effects xD good job! Hopefully you can incorporate a mani with it for a future post :)

    I didn't realize the 20X points was all week...will need to check that out before friday ends.

    I missed your haul posts! so this was nice to see :)

    1. I went to more than one location, scooping up all the Bubbly colours I wanted. Wearing one on top of my gold glitters right now, still experimenting. Thanks for saying that you missed my haul posts :)

  2. I was so excited to read on your blog that Real Techniques will be coming to Wal-Mart in Canada!

    I have a local store where I bought the face brushes set for $29.99, and I had a friend ask if I could pick up a set for her. I let her know that I read that they'll be carrying them at Wal-Mart for $20 and she decided to wait! Hope to see them soon, thank you so much for sharing that! :)

    1. Yes, Walmart's price is a lot better :) I'm so glad you could help your friend getting them cheaper

  3. What other products were on sale for cover fx? My local shoppers only had the primers on sale, nothing else

    1. I listed all the products on 50% off in the post, or you can see the items I got (all were 50%). Another good source of reference would be Murale website, CoverFx section
