Look what I got in the mail...

Today I finally got my Sephora package in the mail. This one took a little longer than the last time I ordered from them, and I was getting a little anxious. But goodies came..

My Hope in a Jar with SPF!! They just came out with the SPF formula and its only at Sephora. I also thought I would try their Purity Made Simple cleanser, because I figure if I love the moisturizer, I might love the cleanser as well. Then I also got 5 (thats right, 5) samples! Everytime you place an order, you get 3 free samples. Because I'm a beauty insider and my account had reached 100 points ($100 spent) I got a "deluxe" sample (which in this case, wasnt really bigger than a normal sample, bummer!). Then I also searched "sephora promo codes" online and found a code for another one.

Heres the list:
  • Stila All Over Shimmer liquid luminizer
  • Boscia antioxidant recovery treatment
  • Benefit You Rebel - "a defiantly different tinted moisturizer"
  • Clinique almost makeup in Neutral (my "deluxe" sample)
  • Murad Firming Bronzer (I'm actually wondering if this is considered a sample because it doesnt say "not for sale" like all the others and its pretty big, 30 mLs. ) I think its actually a full size product (but a small size)
Note to self: 8oz of cleanser is not that much. If I reorder, get a bigger one next time!
I have only used the cleaser once and havent tried any samples yet. Once I have tried the samples and have used the cleanser more, I will be adding some reviews.

Oh I love Winners...

This weekend I decided to go to my local Winners. I hadn't been there in awhile and when you don't have much else to do, its a great way to pass the time. It can be fun to sift through the many racks of clothing looking for a great deal. In case anyone doesnt know what Winners is, it's a store that sells brand name clothing for less than what you would pay had you bought it elsewhere. For instance you could buy a "Guess" purse for cheaper than you would get it at the Guess store in the mall or at The Bay.
I went in there telling myself not to spend more than $50.00. Here's what I bought:
  • Roots active pants for $24.99 compared to about $50 at a Roots store
  • Tommy Hilfiger clutch for $20.00 compared to $39.00 (according to the tag). I checked out and found the exact same one for $39.00. The tag was right!
Here's pics:
So does anyone else shop at Winners? Have you got any super deals there? I want to hear about it!

Lise Watier Plumpissimo Le Gloss

After seeing this new Lise Watier line on other blogs and seeing it in Shoppers Drug Mart I decided I had to check these out. I tested the colours on my hand one day and I liked the amount of colour they had plus the fact that they were not too sticky.
A couple days later I bought one. I bought "Baie" which is like a medium pink/burgundy kind of colour, shown on the far right of the picture. This is actually supposed to be a plumping lip gloss. I was never into the whole plumping thing, the main reason I wanted to buy one of these was the colours.
The colour looks great on my lips, and it has ok staying power, plus it is a little bit sparkly. In my opinion, it doesn't really make my lips look any fuller. The only bad thing about this gloss is the smell.
So if you are looking for fuller lips, skip this one. But if you want a bold colour, with good consistency in a not-too-sticky formula, then go pick up one of these babies. They retail for $20.00 at Shoppers.

Who Doesn't Love Sephora?

I was very pleasantly surprised the other day when I discoverd that the Ultimate beauty store, aka Sephora has an official blog! I was so excited, I went to it immediately and started reading and bookmarked it of course.

I was also really excited to discover that one of my new favourite products, Hope in a Jar by Philosphy has made an SPF 20 formula! I am very excited about this! I have been using this moisturizer for awhile and I really like it, but I was disappointed that it didn't have SPF. Well, now it does! They have also made a new formula of the Purity Made Simple Cleanser, it is now in a foaming cleanser. Apparently customers have been begging for it. I don't know why because foaming cleaners are generally detergent based, which is bad for your skin, but this one claims not to be.

Another thing I wanted to mention is the Best of Sephora 2008 sweepstakes. Basically you vote on your favourite products and one lucky person will win one of every winner (thats 30 products) plus a $1000 gift card and a trip to san francisco. 10 second prize winners will win $100 sephora cards. So go vote people!
