HAUL! Pixi, L’Oreal, Rimmel

I’ve recently moved back to Vancouver (my hometown) and had a chance to sneak into Target to check out what’s in store. There were a few items from the Philip Lim collection left, but nothing that I HAD to have… so I wandered over to cosmetics ­čśŤ

Rimmel Nail Polish, Lipstick, Pixi Palette, and L'Oreal Mascara


It’s an eyes, lips and nails haul! I’ll start with the two nail polishes from Rimmel – Burgundy Flirt and English Rose. These were on sale for $3.99 (same with the Kate Moss Lipstick!), and I remember Ms. Essie Button┬áraving about these nail polishes as being exceptionally long lasting and gorgeous, so I thought why not grab these two for fall :)

I have been on a major burgundy kick lately, so I couldn’t resist this lipstick – #107 in the Kate Moss collection.

I love the purple undertones to this deep lipstick, a must have for fall.

Here is the lipstick in action on my dry lips (sorry!) I LOVE the colour and am pleased with the payoff and the matte finish. I look forward to wearing this soon for an OOTD!

Next, the Early Bird Pallete by Pixi.

This retails for $38 at Target (Canada) and at first I thought… this is a bit steep. But once I swatched a sample palette I was intrigued. You get 3 blushes, 2 bronzers, 1 highlight, 4 base shadows and 16 other eyeshadows. A single blush from Pixi is $16, so when you do the math, this isn’t such a bad deal.

All very neutral, wearable colours. This kit also struck me as being the ultimate travel companion – just bring your brushes, mascara, foundation, concealer and eyeliner and you’re set! I’m looking forward to playing with this more over the next few weeks and plan to do a video with swatches.

Last, but not least, I am about to run out of brown mascara, a must for days I aim for a softer, more natural eye look.

L'Oreal False Lashes Mascara

I’m a fan of the L’Oreal Voluminous mascara, so I thought I’d be a bit adventurous and try the False Lashes Mascara in Brown Black.┬áThe packaging is pretty flashy! I will report back on how it performs :)

That concludes this Target Haul, let me know what products you’ve been loving as we enter the fall season!

I stopped by Shoppers Drug Mart this week intending ONLY to pick up a dual sharpener for eyeliners etc… of course that didn’t happen! I ended up with a few make-up products since they had some great deals on.

Do you find that some Shoppers Drug Marts have loads of sales, and others hardly at all?

Here’s what I got:

Revlon Super Lustrious Lip Glosses, Rimmel Glam Eyes Quad, Physicians Formula Bronzer, Essence Eyeshadow, L'Oreal Infallable Eye Shadow
