Even though I keep saying I am going on a no-buy and I need to save money I kinda splurged and got a bunch of stuff, but I also got everything on sale so the buyers remorse was minimized.
My first purchase was from the Glymm website so that I could use up 500 points that I accumulated. I decided that I really wanted to try some of the Butter London Polishes and spent hours looking up swatches and deciding on the three that I was going to purchase. I wanted Fairy Lights, Knees Up, and Rosie Lee. After almost a month of waiting for my purchase and going back and forth with Glymm Customer support team I got my purchase, but got Tart with a Heart instead of Rosie Lee.
They offered to send me the correct polish if I sent the wrong one back but I was tired of having to deal with Glymm so I just kept the wrong polish. For having to wait they sent me a foundation paper sample and a free principessa lip balm. With my points and free shipping this purchase only cost me $7.00.
Next stop was the Dollarama to stalk the hair and makeup isle for new deals. Lately, I have been seeing some great brands for cheap at the Dollarama, so I try and go once a week to look for steals. On this trip I got:
- Aussie Styling Smooth Leave in Conditioner and Heat Protectant. I was so excited to see this because I had been looking for a leave in conditioner for a while. I thought $3 was great for this because it is almost twice that at Walmart.
- PUR(e) Makeup Remover. I picked this up on a whim because it was only $2 and I wanted a back up for when my Marcelle one is finished. However, when I got home and smelt the product it kinda smells like nail polish remover so I am wary to put this on my face.
- Almay Mascara. The concept of this mascara really intrigues me. You can pick the intensity of your lashes by adjusting the dial on the tube.
- ELF Blending Brush. This is a staple in my brush collection now and I use it almost everyday.
I picked up two more Revlon Polishes. A dirty lilac grey colour and a deep purple that looks black in some lights but also looks blue in others. I love that I find Revlon for half the price.
I also picked up the Wet & Wild Top Coat. I haven't tried this yet but I have high hopes.
They also had these Color Shock Kozmic Colours Nail polishes for only $1 so I picked up all 8 colours that were available. I have tried two of these so far and the colour payoff is amazing, it lasts forever without chipping and they are absolutely gorgeous.
I feel like no Beauty Blogger's Fall Haul is complete without a Bath and Body Works Candle Haul. I picked up a few of the mini candles in:
- Farmstand Apple
- Pumpkin Caramel Latte
- Creamy Pumpkin, &
The minis are 2 for $5 and last for a decent amount of time. I like buying these because they are a great way to try out scents without the commitment of a three-wick candle. This is totally cliche, but I LOVE LEAVES!! So good, and my favourite Fall scent by far!
I also picked up two 3-wick candles when there were on sale for 2 for $25. I got Farmstand Apple and Frosted Cupcake. One for the fall season and winter season. I am going to buy some Leaves in this size once my store gets more in stock.
Next I hauled A LOT of shampoo. At Walmart I found Herbal Essences 2-in-1 Bye Bye Breakage Shampoo on sale for $1 so picked up three.
At Shoppers Drug Mart I got these Garnier Fructis Shampoo and Conditioner combo packs on sale for only $2.72. These packs come with a 700mL shampoo and a 350mL conditioner.
At Dollarama I picked up the Nivea Apricot Body Wash for only $2. It smells amazing! Exactly like a fresh apricot. I am so excited to try this.
And lastly, I got this adorable owl candle holder for my mini candles. This little guy is only $6 at Bath and Body Works and I love him!
What have you hauled for Fall??
