Weekend Beauty Finds

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend thus far. Here in Toronto the heat wave finally let up enough for me to enjoy the weather a bit more.

I went to see The Conjuring which I normally wouldn't go to see. I don't mind thrillers with a touch of horror but spooky films about possession based on true events freaks me out. The movie delivered as far as horror films go.

I also went to the mall (again) to buy the Urban Decay Primer Potion. I checked every Sephora in my area and they were all sold out! This has been my favorite eye shadow primer for years so when I couldn't find it the wonderfully helpful staff at Sephora at Sherway Gardens recommended this one.
Apparently this primer is just like the original but with anti-aging benefits. I really don't care about the anti-aging benefits right now but I can't go without this primer so I bought it anyway.

I also bought this Argan Oil from Morocco intense deep conditioning hair treatment. I know I have a lot of conditioners and hair products but these small affordable packets are a great way to try out a new brand before committing to a larger jar of product. (I found this at Walmart).

And of course no trip is complete without buying some kind of lip product. I could have spent all day in Sephora but when my mom dragged me out to go to Forever 21 I found some more makeup by the cash while digging around in the makeup section (as usual). I have never purchased any makeup from Forever 21 before so this gloss called Hot Pink looked promising.
The gloss was suppose to be a high pigment gloss and I love the color but it turned out to be quite transparent and sticky. I was disappointed by how little color this gloss produced.

These mini Love & Beauty lip glosses also from Forever 21 are much more pigmented, especially the red and the darkest bronze shade. I think these glosses are great and I love the colors and the compact size of them. 

Also from Love & Beauty is this pink lipstick with a slight purple hue. The lipsticks and glosses don't have names by the way so you will have to check out your local store or go online to see whats available. As far as lipsticks go this one is pretty good. It goes on creamy in texture and is non-drying.

Love & Beauty also has a variety of nail polish


There are also facial products in this line. This mango purifying dead sea mud mask is suppose to smooth and clarify the skin.

 There is no name on this polish but it is a beautiful bright pink that borders on neon

I think the Color Club nail laquer line has some of the most beautiful shades. I love the deep purple shade

The last lip product is this jumbo lip perfection pencil from CoverGirl in the shade coral twist #235. This is suppose to be a tinted balm and it also applies like a creamy lipstick. It contains shea and mango butter, it is non sticky and it comes in 16 other pretty shades.


Did anyone else buy anything this weekend?

  5. Great haul! I really love that Cover Girl lipstick shade. I've been looking for something orange-y -- is it really orange or true to the color of the stick?

  10. This is such an awesome haul Erica!! That lipstick and gloss looks amazing. I have to say that the UD primers were pretty hard to find too when I was looking for them.

  11. I HAVE HOODED ASIAN EYES S0 POWDER EYESHADOWS DON'T STAY LONG ON MY EYELIDS. I AM USING URBAN DECAY PRIMER PORTION ORIGINAL AT THE MOMENT BUT EVEN WITH THIS, IT IS NOT SUPER LONG LASTING SO I DO USE MAYBELLINE COLOR TATOO CREAM EYESHADOW OVER THE PRIMER PORTION THEN APPLY POWDER EYESHADOW. OH MAN~ LIKE THIS, THE LASTING POWER IS UNBEATABLE.
