In the Mail: Suzie Wuzie

 Isn't her name cute? I think so. I recently received a package from her and somehow one lipstick multiplied into all sorts of things O_o  Let's take a look. She was supposed to only send me this:

Korres Mango Butter Lipstick SPF 10 in Natural Pink 13
 And to my surprise, I got these lovelies accompanying my first ever Korres product:

Thank you so much Suzie! I was having a bad day and this totally cheered me up as well as your undying generosity ^^ The lipstick works out to be a bright MLBB shade (loves!) and the yummy perfume smells like fresh lychee! 

FOB: LUSH Boxing Day Sale 2010

 This year I was prepared to face the crowds and the occasional elbow to the gut...but what I wasn't expecting was a claustrophobic LUSH store! It was jam packed with people when I arrived at 10am >< The haul wasn't as big as it was suppose to be because this year, instead of buy 1 get 2 free, it was only BOGO :/ My friend and I worked out the list of things that we wanted to get but some of the stuff like the Candy Cane Bubble Bar was already sold out (I have a little story for you later.) Also, since she wasn't with me (she was at a different mall, scouting the good steals and deals) and the "game plan" changed, I had to work my way around it. Literally. The store was tiny!

 Everything that was BOGO was marked (hah! no pun intended!) with a Mark sticker. Maybe to make up for the disappointing deal this year, LUSH had not only put Christmas products as part of the BOGO, certain items from their permanent line was also BOGO (Honey I washed the Kids, gifts made before November 1st, Rockstar etc.) So my supposedly funny story isn't really much in the impressive department =P But here it goes. When I arrived, I was trying to get everything that was on the list. I was supposed to get at least 2 Candy Cane Bubble Bars but to my disappointment, they were all gone! So I looked desperately around those wooden stands that they put stuff on and luckily, I grabbed the price/info stand and BAM! I see one tucked between two stands ^^ (There you have it, your lesson of the day: never give up. Seriously.)

  • 2 Christmas Eve Bubble Bars
  • 1 Bearded Lady Bubble Bar
  • 2 Gingerbread House Bubble Bars
  • 1 Candy Cane Bubble Bar
  • 2 Winter Bath Bath Bombs
  • 2 Matryoshka(s)* **

*not sure if they use "S"s to indicate if a noun is plural in the Russian language
**my friend got them for me because she said she was horrible when it comes to buying presents, and of course, I didn't want her to buy me something when you can wait and get it for a cheaper price, thanks love! <3

Next year, depending on the amount of LUSH goodies that I'm after, I will wake up earlier, and sprint to that store and elbow anyone that's in my way..erh...kidding about the last part. Want to share about your funny boxing day experiences? You know what to do~! 

I hope everyone enjoyed this seemingly brief holiday break!

Bunnie Loves: Joe Fresh Nailpolish in Mint, Faded Violet, & Peacock

All pictures are *click worthy* ;)

You have no idea how lazy I am. This post was supposed to be up during the summer. YES. 4 months. See how  backlogged I am? It's funny too because Mint and Faded Violet were thought to be limited edition spring/summer 2010 colours. Now I believe they're permanent :) I've blabbed a lot about the Joe Fresh line so if you haven't heard about it yet, they're only available at Loblaws and Superstore supermarket chains across Canada.

TO THE REVIEW! *pic heavy*
I will separate this into 3 different sections so I can focus on the individual colours because their finish and formula varies.

Spotted! Revlon Custom Eyes Shadow, Liner & Mascara & Covergirl NatureLuxe

Just a quick post of the stuff I saw at Loblaw the other day. I hope you're not tired of these posts yet but it seems as though Canada is being hit with a lot of new makeup collections! 

Revlon Custom Eyes Shadow & Liner
I was surprised at the speed of receiving new makeup displays. Usually when our buddies in the States get a fresh collection, we don't get it until 3 months later ><

I also saw the Custom Eyes Mascara with the adjustable bristles on the brush.

Covergirl NatureLuxe Collection

 My friend decided to get two of these so she was kind enough to let me swatch them :)

Marble & Tulip

Bottom: Marble Top: Tulip
 They aren't exactly pigmented but I think it will be good for those with dry lips that want extra shine. It also smells like vanilla~

Bottom: Marble Top: Tulip
 Tulip has a hint of berry while Marble shows up as clear.

Almay intense i-color smoky-i kit
so many "i"s

Spotted! Covergirl Lip Perfection & Nature Luxe, Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips Glam Collection, Almay Wake Up

CAUTION: this post is highly pic heavy! 

I really hated my last Spotted! post where I had no actual live-in-action pictures to show you guys. So I went around the mall trying to be ninja and sneak some pictures onto my camera! ^^ I felt so nervous and out of place when I was snooping around at Shoppers(Drug Mart). The sales ladies were everywhere! And I believe that they have eyes of an eagle >< To my surprise, I actually found more new goodies to show you~!

Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipcolour 
They were so brand spanking new that some of them weren't even swatched yet! The colours didn't appeal to me though: they were pretty shades, but a lot of them had frosty finishes...

Covergirl Nature Luxe Line
So I wasn't seeing things! The lipcolours are itty bitty but I really like the array of colours to choose from! The foundation reminds me of tinted moisturizers. Perhaps they'll work like one?

Spotted! WetNWild Holiday Palettes, Revlon & Almay(dupe) Aqua Mineral Makeup, Covergirl Nature Luxe

taken from http://cydonianmakeup.blogspot.com/
Yeup. I'm sure you've all heard the rave about the wetNwild holiday palettes ^^ GOOD NEWS! I went to Zellers today (to buy a combo lock that I cam use at the gym, but sadly, no luck) and I accidently stumbled upon these babies! They were fairly new on display so there was no price tag...sorry!

I also saw the Revlon ColorStay Aqua Mineral Makeup ($16.99CAD)...however, as I bent down, behold, I saw Almay's EXACT dupe of it! Same packaging but blue, the brush was neatly tucked onto the lid and they both contained 0.35g(?)...I'm not so sure about the units :P There was also no price tag. It would be really interesting to see if they have the same ingredients. I wonder which one is the best outta the 2. They both claim to hydrate the skin. I can't remember the name...ah

Funny thing about this line from Covergirl, it's supposed to come out in Spring 2011? But somehow I saw them at Shoppers Drug Mart. It was only a glance so maybe I was seeing things...although I kind of doubt it. Maybe somebody can check it out and confirm it for me?

Sorry for the lack of actual photos. I don't really bring a camera with me all the time. I don't charge it either ><
