Fall Haul: Candles, Nail Polish & Shampoo Galore!

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:
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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, &
  • Leaves!
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!
