I Live to Shine


Collective haul

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

After more than a month being away, I was itching checking out deals around town. This is a bunch of purchases I did since I came back from vacation, hope they are helpful for some of you who are looking for the same things.

First stop was Lawtons as I love their clearance sale. I kinda miss it when I was away :)

Found all 4 bottles from Nicole by OPI Holiday Glitters collection which I passed when it first came out due to the high price tag. Gladly bought them now at half price.

From L-R: Snow-man of my dreams, Glitter in my Stocking, Orna-ment for Each Other and My Sleigh's in the Shop, CAD4.97 each.

Also found the 2 highly coveted shades for cheap - Revlon Topspeed in Mistletoe, CAD1.62 and L'Oreal Owl's Night, CAD2.97. There are OPI Grand Slam duos and China Glaze holiday sets on clearance too, if you are looking for those.

The luck didn't end there, as I found these Twilight Beauty's pack full of products, red-tagged for CAD9.99.

Product combinations are different in every pack, 6 products each ranging from face palette, eyeshadows, mascara, lip stain to nail polish.

By the look of it, each pack values at least $60, the nail polish itself already costs $7. Good steal, no?
I want to do a giveaway for one of these packs but only with enough interest, let me know.

Didn't want to miss Sally's Boxing Day sale, I went to the one near the bf's parents'. All red-tagged items were extra 50% off that day. Prices mentioned below are the tag price, before the extra discount.

I scored Orly's Birds of a Feather trio, with Sweet Peacock, Lucky Duck and Fowl Play, and a peacock feather bag, CAD7.99.

I also grabbed Orly Oui, CAD4.49, Finger Paints Comet's Collar, Silver Crackle and Red Crackle, CAD3.99 each. I scored a Caboodle black lace train case, CAD29.99, but already put it away, so no pic. It was really cute though :)

Last week I was lucky to be able to locate the Finger Paints Special Effects, with the help of the person behind Sally's twitter account. I got 4 - Twisted, Asylum, Motley and Flecked, passed on Flashy as I already have Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure and the likes. We do pay more in Canada, CAD6.29 each (with card, compared to $4.99 in the US).

Took advantage of this month's promo for a free China Glaze (excluding the Eye Candy shades) with a purchase of Seche Vite top coat (CAD9 with card). I picked White Cap as it is a fun layer shade. Looking back, this turns out to be an all white haul interestingly lol.

And lastly, if you haven't heard about the biggest sale at the Body Shop, you do now.

Holiday scents - Cranberry Joy, Candied Ginger and Spiced Vanilla (single products and gift sets) are 70% off (except the body butters being reduced from CAD18 to CAD10).

Online seems to have better stocks than in stores, but shipping is CAD7.95/ order or free with orders of CAD75 or more.

This is the Shower, Scrub and Moisture collection (I picked Cranberry Joy), reg. CAD25, now CAD7.50. Inside the hex tin box are a full sized shower gel, mini body butter and scrub, and a soap.

Was lucky to find this Body and Lip care collection in Candied Ginger (no sign of the other 2 scents of this), CAD45 down to CAD13.50.

I prefer this set than the above set, as it comes with all full sized products - shower gel, body butter, scrub and lip balm.

Like I said above, the body butter is not 70% off (CAD10 right now), so paying CAD13.50 for the set is a steal.

There is a Deluxe Gift box that is an upgrade from this set, adding a full sized shimmer lotion, a soap and a bath lily, CAD60 down to CAD18 but only the website has it. I couldn't find it in stores.

Note that your receipt will come with a coupon for $10 off your next purchase of $40 or more. Never saw this with TBS before :)

No pic of my Shoppers haul as all I bought were the L'Oreal Infallible eyeshadows, as backups and gifts. CAD6.99 is the best price I have seen on these so stock up, if you haven't already. The 6 new shades from the L'Or collection are a little hard to find right now unfortunately, it took me 3 locations to find them. Hope you can take advantage of this sale before it's over. Happy Monday!


  1. Wow great buys! I have actually tried the Twilight polish once before and it was a fairly good polish! (So yes, I'd be interested in a giveaway! Wish I could find these packs!). And you got flakies! Great haul!

  2. what a great haul! I wish I could find those in sales here!! hehe


  3. Oh man! That is quite an amazing haul! I am jealous that you managed to get such a great deal on the Twilight packages since I remember each item being crazy expensive! I remember the lipsticks being close to $20 alone!

  4. lol that's so funny that we got the same china glaze share for the Seche Vite promo. I totally missed out on the half off boxing day sale, if I had known, I would have gone :(

    You had posted on my blog that you found a promo for 5 AA polishes for $15. What site was this through?

  5. Ladies, thank you for the support :)

    Hebridean Sprite, thank you. I love the Twilight polishes I got, which was why I had the giveaway idea

    Annie, I was actually shocked seeing the packs for $10 myself

    Danielle, left you a comment on the post, but the deal was with TeamBuy a while ago. And Sally always has 50% off sale on Boxing Day :)

  6. Looks like you got some really great deals! My Sally's has been crap for clearance recently, though I forgive them since they had plenty of the flakies. :)

  7. You're right, flakies could make up for the lack of clearance deals :)

  8. I would love it if you would do a giveaway for the Twilight sets! I've never seen these in any store in the US, so I wouldn't know where to buy them myself. Plus... I'm a huge Twilight fan!! Thanks for sharing!

  9. Ohh nice haul! I am a huge twilight fan! I was never able to get my hands on the twilight items and I wasn't going to pay an insane amount for shipping and handling! ha ha I'm too cheap! :-P

    But yes that would be very nice of you to do a giveaway for the twilight pack :-) <3

  10. Pink Sparkllz and MissTwist, great to hear more feedbacks about the giveaway as I almost trashed the idea of hosting one. Thanks
