Winners weekend finds

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

A haul post dedicated to just Winners thanks to the waves of new arrivals over the last few weeks, with some brands we can't find in Canada normally.

First is Nip+Fab pistachio body sundae (200ml), $4.99, comparable at $8. I was looking all over the internet for this, was even thinking to swallow the shipping cost to get some.

And there it was just waiting for me on the shelf at Winners :) The tub is sealed, and the price was awesome, so I grabbed a few backups.

There was a bunch of First Aid Beauty products, I only bought the Ultra Repair wash (226.8g/ 8oz), $9.99, comparable at $14.

Found Maybelline Color Tattoos in Mossy Green and Rich Mahogany (the LE Fall 2012 release that Canada didn't get), $5.99 each, comparable at $8.99.

And in the black box is Guerlain eyeshadow quad in Terre Indigo (Terracotta Inca Summer 2011 collection), $29.99, comparable at $48. The surface pattern was breathtaking and the US retail price for it was actually $59, so this is definitely a score.

Many Elizabeth Arden products came, most in plastic wraps, yay!

I couldn't pass up the beautiful packaging of the Pure Finish bronze powder in Warm Radiance (Rose Aurora Spring/ Summer 2012 collection), $14.99, comparable at $45.

Also got the Eight Hour Cream Intensive moisturizing hand treatment (30ml) to try, $6.99, comparable at $10.

The Dual Perfection brow shaper and eyeliner in Brunette, $8.99, comparable at $24 and Color Intrigue eyeshadow in Smoke, $7.99, comparable at $23, are impulsive buys. I have to look up reviews later.

And a Canadian brand, Lise Watier, also made its appearance at Winners.

Another beautiful packaging I couldn't resist, the Glamour Rose eye and cheek palette, $19.99, comparable at $45.

From the Summer Sunset collection (with the orange and hot pink stripes) were the bronzing powder, $16.99 each, comparable at $35 and the Crystal Drops lip gloss in Dragon Fruit, $8.99, comparable at $18.

The dark square box houses the eyeshadow quartet in Les Vins, $14.99, comparable at $36. And the silver long tube is the Duo Glam lipstick duo in Pink Hibiscus, $12.99, comparable at $27.

These are all LE products from last year, for around 50% off, about the same discount in the online warehouse sale a while back. No product pics because the wraps are still on, just in case I might have to bring some back if reviews aren't looking great.

What have you spotted lately at Winners?

  3. I saw Annabelle Big Show mascara with bonus green eyeliner. It was way cheaper than buying the mascara by itself in the drug store!

    1. Yeah, hard to tell with Winners. I am always excited to find things there, but the Nip+Fab was just like a wish comes true, I gasped when I saw it lol

  8. I hope I can find Lise Watier stuff! My Winners hasn't had anything really exciting for a while.

    Nice haul!

  9. Oh I was just at Winner's, and didn't see anything this awesome. I was SO excited to see Organic Surge (not sure if they usually carry them, as it is hard for me to get to Winner's) but they only had lavender stuff which is not for my skin type plus I don't like the smell. I am incredibly jealous of the color tattoos... that's awesome.
