Holiday Collection: Joe Fresh

14 Nov

Hello everyone! So today’s post is going to be about Joe Fresh’s Holiday cosmetics collection and well to be honest I haven’t looked at the items yet but they are available on the website.

First up is the palette, it is very similar to the Fall Five Minute Palette with the same concepts but shades are different.

The shades in this one is Silk, Silver, Black, and Carbon (eyeshadows), Ruby lipgloss and lipstick, and Pale Peach Blush and Glow (Bronzer). I probably won’t pick up this palette as I already have many but it would be a great gift idea for those stocking stuffers. It still retails for $20CDN as the previous palette.

Next up is the Fresh Glass Lip gloss set. You get a set of 5 glosses in three different tones (warm, cool, or neutral) for $10CDN. Please note that these are miniature versions compared to the regular Fresh Glass Lip Glosses.

And the last thing that is going to be new for the Holiday season is Nail Polish sets. You get three nail polish (full size) for $10CDN in limited edition colors.

Shown here are Imperial (shimmering purple), Dupioni (shimmering white), and Midas (gold). The other shades are Steel (grey), Onyx (darker grey), Beet (purple), Sweet Tart (bright pink), Wine (dark red), and Cherry (red). Both Wine and Cherry are from the original line so they’ll be around for a while.

Did I mention that these would be great as stocking stuffers?

Deals of the Week

22 Feb

Here are some of the deals of the week and these are the items that I picked up. I probably won’t have many of these posts as it does seem to be a bragging post that and the only things that I buy all the time is food. ^_^ So for those who live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada these deals are going to be held until this Friday which is Feb 26 and they are pretty good deals.

First up, I gotta mention the stores that I went to. The first place was Lemon Tree to get myself something you’ll see it later… then it was Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall, and then Superstore.

The items:

The brushes are from Quo which is Shoppers Drug Mart makeup brushes… they even have their own line of makeup too! But anyways, those brushes were 40% off. So in total they were… let’s see… about $33CDN. If I bought it full priced it would have been $46CDN. Yeah… saved a lot of money.

From Rexall which is a chain of drugstores owned by Darrel Katz, also known as pharmaprix in some other Canadian places but what I actually got from there is the pressed powder which is N.Y.C. Translucent powder and the Maybelline Quad in Chai Latte. They were both 20% off and the total came to under $10. It wasn’t that much so compared to Shoppers I only saved about $3.

The last place that I went to is Superstore and they had a deal on Covergirl mascaras… not all of their mascaras but the professional and the exact collection. That and some crackers… hooray triscuits! They were 2 for $9.00 so I saved a lot there. Yippee! I’m excited to try them out. Both are in Blackest Black as my eyelashes are really… well being asian black.

So the special item that I got was this:

 This doll is a Momiji Doll. A pretty doll. Just for me. Her name is Rainbow she likes shopping, fashion, and long division. Just like me! There is only one place in Edmonton that sells these doll, I would very much like to get some more. Of course, ones that speak my personality. ^_^

Well, that will be it for today…. sorry for double posting.
