I’d never heard of Obsessed Canada until I was on the hunt to replace my Nail Balsam by Trind (I mentioned it in my favourites lately post). I saw that it was sold not only NailPolishCanada.com (NPC) but also on ObsessedCanada.com (OC) – then I realized, OC is owned by NPC! 💡
What made me decide to order through OC instead of NPC was that OC offered a brand that I’d been curious to try for a while now: Mario Badescu. I ended up with these items:
I placed my order on May 2nd and it arrived in 4 days, not a bad turnaround.
This was the main item I was after:
Nail Balsam by Trind – I’m nearly finished my current bottle and was excited that I was able to find a local source for it. My original bottle was purchased from Finland.
This was the 2nd item I was most excited to get:
Mario Badescu Facial Spray – I’m slowly easing myself into this brand. I’ve read rave reviews online and recently I’ve heard Miss Cat sing its praises. Anything else you’d recommend from Mario Badescu? I learned that this brand is now available at Urban Outfitters and at the new Saks!
And a couple more items for no reason since I’d already hit the $25 minimum for free shipping:
Colab Extreme Volume dry shampoo in Tokyo scent (travel size) – I’ve been on the hunt for this particular Colab dry shampoo scent in stores but have not been able to find it, so I decided to get it online. I’m planning to bring this on my Japan trip – oh yes, Tokyo scent for when I’m actually in Tokyo. 😀
e.l.f. Studio blush in Pink Passion – holy BRIGHT blush Batman! I don’t know what I was expecting, but this is way more intense in real life than in photos. I think this will look hawt with a tan. This cost $4.95 and will be counted toward my monthly makeup budget.
Tiny rant: I’m scratching my head as to why NPC decided to operate a separate site – 3 of the 4 items I purchased were available on both sites. The only real difference is that OC doesn’t sell nail polish, but most of the brands it carries is also sold on NPC (compare the brand list here and here). If NPC just wanted to focus on nail polish, then don’t carry makeup, skincare and hair care products. It’s just very disjointed. My main beef is that there’s no loyalty point program on OC like there is on NPC. I’d likely not order from OC again, even though they did include a lollipop:
Have you ordered from OC or tried any of these products I got?
