Latest Buys from Shoppers and Winners -- butter LONDON, Bioderma, Cover FX & More

Thursday, June 13, 2013

For my birthday, my parents got me gift cards to two of my favourite beauty shopping spots: Winners and Shoppers Drug Mart! Here's what I managed to score:



inm Out The Door Top Coat: I've heard so many good things about this top coat, so I decided to try it out! This was $4.99, comparable at $11.00.

 butter LONDON 3 Free Nail Lacquer in Stag Do: My very fist butter LONDON polish! My local store had a couple other shades available but they looked to be solid cremes, and I wanted something more complex. Stag Do is slate blue with green shimmer. I can't wait to try it! It was a little pricey (for Winners) at $12.99, but BL polishes go for $17 in Canada so it was still a good deal.

ORLY Perfect Pair Duo -- "Galaxy Girl" and "Fiesta": Both these polishes are full-size and the duo cost $8.99, comparable at $12. Galaxy Girl is deep purple with teal and green flecks, and Fiesta is hot pink with pink shimmer.

Billion Dollar Brows Brow Gel and pixi Lip & Line in No.1 Pale Petal

pixi Lip & Line in No. 1 Pale Petal: This is lipstick/lip liner duo in a pretty peachy pink shade. The price was only $5.99, comparable at $18!

Billion Dollar Brows Brow Gel: A clear brow gel because I didn't have any. I've heard good things about the brand so I decided to take the plunge. It was $6.99, comparable at $18.

Shoppers Drug Mart

Shiseido Facial Cotton: The best cotton pads in the world. I've used these before and I looove. A bit pricey at $9 a pack, but I usually cut them in half as that's enough to remove my makeup with.

Bioderma Sébium H20 Micelle Solution: Yep, I'm jumping on the bandwagon! I got Sébium H20 instead of Sensibio, as it's supposed to be best for combination skin. This 100ml version cost $6.95 before taxes.

Cover FX Cream Concealer in N X-Light

Cover FX Cream Concealer in N X-Light: I really needed a workhouse concealer, and after hearing good things about this one, I decided to take the plunge. It's $27 for 10ml, but you only need the tiniest bit. I love that it comes in hygienic squeeze packaging (I tried to darken the spout a little so you can actually see it).

I'll be sure to review these items! Have you tried any of these? What have you bought recently?

Products were bought with gift cards received as a birthday gift. All opinions are my own.
