Just a few months ago, I’d never met another blogger but then I met fivezero! 😁 And just this past weekend, I met THREE more bloggers! I met Jodi of A Brash Attitude and Cat of MyLipAddiction, and then Polished and Inspired!!! 😮 And of course, we did some makeup shopping! 😛 Here’s my collective haul:
Nothing is more fun than shopping for makeup with other makeup addicts! 😀
Jodi was in town to attend the Generation Beauty by Ipsy event and although neither Cat or I were attending, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to have a meetup! It was such a windy day – we ended up at a Second Cup coffee shop to chit chat and some lattes before we headed out to do some shopping. We gabbed for a long while! Then we decided it was time to hit the streets of Toronto to SHOP! We ended up at the NYX store and Marshalls and these came home with me:
NYX Avant Pop! Shadow Palette in Nouveau Chic ($19) – I was so happy to see this in stock! It’s always out of stock online and I had no hope in finding it in the store. Excited to try this out!
China Glaze nail polish in Sorry I’m Latte ($5.99) – this is from the Spring House of Colour collection and I found this at Marshalls! I was showing Jodi and Cat the places I stalk for my Winners / Marshalls finds. Unfortunately there weren’t a lot there during this particular visit.
We also stopped into Saje and Urban Outfitters but I didn’t get anything from there (although the 2 for $8 nail polishes at UO looked tempting). We probably did more talking than shopping, in all honesty! 😉 It was a ton of fun!
Then, the following day, Polished and Inspired (known as P&I going forward…) and I met up at the Eaton Centre to do some damage. 😛 She was in town on vacation with her fiancé – I was glad that our schedules aligned and we were able to meet up. And of course, we met up at the Sephora! 😆 She was interested in seeing Surratt in person – I still want more of their blushes! First though, she came bearing gifts! So sweet, and she really shouldn’t have! I received:
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light – she knew I’d been lusting after this and this travel size is perfect to try out! I was thinking of taking this with me on my trip but I decided it’s too precious to risk it. 😛
Zoya nail polish in Meadow – such a “me” shade! I’m slowly building my Zoya collection back up, it seems! 🙂
Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Buttercream – I’ve never smelled this before and I was pleasantly surprised to find it’s a sweet citrus smell. I was expecting it to smell like their Hand Food hand cream which I wasn’t a fan of but, this I LOVE. So refreshing – I can’t wait to slather this on (or eat it)! ❤
Thank you for the goodies, P&I! 🙂
The main makeup places that we wanted to hit up were H&M Beauty, Muji, and Yves Rocher (we did also wander over to Inglot but they weren’t open). I ended up succumbing to the buy one get one 50% deal on cosmetics at H&M:
Overnight Lip Rescue – I heard good things about this and after the fiasco with the BITE Beauty Agave Lip Mask, I decided to give this a shot.
Nail polish in Intergalactic ($6.99) – I totally blame P&I for enabling this nail polish purchase! 😛
Then I grabbed a few basics at The Face Shop:
Real Nature sheet masks in White Tea and Calendula – I’ve never seen these masks at the FaceShop before. Interested to try the calendula one especially
Silky & Soft Cotton Pads – I was fascinated by these cotton pads – they are like little maxi pads! There are even slots where your fingers go.
It was amazing to meet up with all these bloggers! In flesh and blood! If you think they’re awesome people online, that’s just a tiny glimpse into how awesome they are in real life! 🙂 I’m so glad we had the opportunity to meet up! And nope, no pics of us. We’re keeping the mystery. 😉
