Today’s post features a small haul of new products from the Chanel and Dior Spring 2015 Beauty Collections. I tried to not go crazy which, as proven in the past, can be an occurrence for me when it comes to special collections. When it comes to high-end makeup, I can easily say that Chanel and Dior are some of my favourite designer makeup brands. As a Canadian with limited access to many other high-end brands, I like that Chanel and Dior can be found in-store and do not require me to either go on a scavenger hunt or deal with shipping/taxes/customs/duties fees online. The life of a makeup addict here in Canada is tough but with access to Chanel and Dior, I think I’ll be just fine.
I am finally back! Sorry for the hiatus. I won’t bore you with any excuses, so let’s just get on to the good stuff!
These are the goodies I picked up from the recent Sephora sale. I went a little crazy, at least in my opinion, since I usually purchase products a few at a time. I knew the sale was coming up so I forced myself to exert self-control and not purchase anything from Sephora. My last Sephora purchase was actually made while I was in Vegas, back in August, so I would say I did a pretty good job of restraining myself.
Needless to say, I accumulated a long wish list of products that I wanted to check out for the sale. With my iPhone note in hand, I headed to my new local Sephora on Robson Street in Downtown Vancouver. It was a nice treat to be able to haul new products from a brand new Sephora store. I probably spent over an hour checking everything out and swatching to my heart’s content. These are the products I ended up with, over two different trips.
Excuse the slight hiatus. End of term assignments/papers, home renovations, battling a minor cold and preparing for my trip to Vegas in a couple days has been keeping me busy. Last week, I went down to the States with my family to shop for our new kitchen. Of course the beauty addict in me managed to sneak a couple of makeup purchases along the way.
Here are some new additions to my collection from none other than my favourite drugstore, Shoppers Drug Mart. I never purchase drugstore items full price and when Shoppers has a sale, they do it right. I was able to pick up a couple things that I have been eager to try and some things from a new Essence collection (my weakness!).
Dior. Spring. 2014. Trianon. Dramatic pauses for emphasis because this collection is amazing. I was able to hold my ground though and only limit myself to picking up two things. Trust me, it was hard to leave behind the other Rouge Dior and the two stunning Addict Glosses.
My apologies for the surprise hiatus, I know I said that I would be back after finals but man, it was nice to just completely relax for 2 whole weeks. The holiday season is always a great time to recover from the year and recharge for the upcoming year. This break, I got to spend time with visiting relatives and catch up with old friends. I also started marathoning a couple of new shows, which is always exciting. Overall, it was a break that was much needed and left me feeling excited about the new semester and new year.
Also, over the break, I reached 5,000 views on my blog. I was so incredibly excited when I saw this because it is a pretty big number! Thanks to those who have ever stopped by and supported my little humble abode on the Internet. Here’s to many more!
After sharing that coupon with you all, you know I had to go take advantage of it myself. Lo and behold, a small and rather unnecessary nail polish haul.
