All about Hauls: a Collection

My OPI's ordered from Spa Boutique

My mailbox has been bursting with goodies the past few days (yay!) I have so many new products to try and share. The first of everything to arrive was my OPI's from Spa Boutique. I got two colours from the France Collection: Tickle My France-y and You Don't Know Jaques. I also got a few colours from the Hong Kong Collection: Lucky Lucky Lavender, Dim Sum Plum, Jade is the New Black and Suzi Says Feng Shui (from left to right as pictured.)

Spa Boutique samples

For those who have never ordered from (or heard of) Spa Boutique, they are a Vancouver based etailer of beauty supplies (not just limited to nail polish) they do however carry many top nail polish brands: OPI, Essie, China Glaze, CND and so on. Shipping is usually $8.95, but using the code FREE24 I got mine shipped free. Although what I ordered arrived on the same day, it was actually two separate orders, so I revived 6 samples (as shown.) Shipping wasn't slow, but it wasn't super speedy either. My orders were placed July 6th and 7th and I received them July 20th. They shipped Canada Post, and had to go from Vancouver to Ontario. All in all, I am pretty pleased with everything and might order again.

OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender

Lucky Lucky Lavender was the shade that I was most excited about, after Justine posted swatches of the Hong Kong collection on her blog. It is such a fun summery pink (more pink-y than lavender to me) that I just had to wear it first. I love it!

DuWop Foundation of Youth

The second package to arrive was my DuWop Foundation of Youth that I ordered from The Shopping Channel. Regular price for the this product is $42, but I had a $35 savings card, and shipping was free, so in total I got it for $12 (not too shabby!) I got #2 light as opposed to #1 fair, because it looked way too pink, but this shade is a tad dark... I'll make it work, but I am a bit bummed. More of a review coming soon.

Luxuriant Heel Repair and Hands On Balm

Also from The Shopping Channel, I got my showstopper from a few days ago, Luxuriant cracked heel repair and bonus hand relief balm. I have notoriously dry feet at all times during the year ( I rarely wear shoes, I love them, have a ton of them, but I go hippie most of the time.) The before and afters were so convincing I just had to try it. Review coming in a few weeks.

My Cake Beauty haul ♥

Next to arrive, was my Cake Beauty haul. I took advantage of the sale that they had a few days ago and got myself Desserted Island body mousse, Desserted Island shower froth (dubble bubble size,) Satin Sugar hair refreshing mist, Winter Wonder Lips gingerbread lip gloss annnd got It's a Slice creamy shower polish free! Yay for free. I wasn't just thinking about myself though... I picked up an extra Winter Wonderlips for my giveaway! It smells soo good, just like fresh gingerbread cookies! It looks like it should make your lips brown, but it applies as a neutral almost clear colour.

Pharmasave haul

Today, while I was waiting for a prescription at Pharmasave, I noticed Revlon Age Defying foundation in the sale bin ($11.98 regularly $18.89) and I picked up a Ecotools foundation brush for $7.49. Since I saved $7 on the foundation it was like getting the brush for free. Free is nice.

From my "friends" at L'Oreal

Annnd (like that wasn't enough!) when I checked the mail on the way home I was pleasantly surprised to find a little black box from L'Oreal. Inside is a deluxe sample tube of Go Clean 360. It says best used with a scrublette, but it didn't come with one... I bought on from Avon that is pretty much the same as the ones that come with this product, so I will try it out. Review to follow soon. So many products, such little time. Now all I am waiting on is my order from Sephora... I guess there is always tomorrow!
