I was reading online flyers on Friday morning – as you do! – and I came across this:
Shiseido gift with purchase (gwp) with $43 spend! I’ve been itching to replenish some Shiseido skincare so I hopped over to the counter at Hudson’s Bay on Queen Street.
And again, this will be the world’s most boring “haul” because I bought one thing:
Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Intensive Eye Contour Cream
I’ve talked a lot about this eye cream – it’s my HG nighttime eye cream! I’m now gearing up for the colder months and I can’t imaging going through a Canadian winter without this. *hugs jar* It’s pricey (C$68) but this jar will last me at least a couple of years.
Now the fun part, the gwp!
• Benefiance Extra Creamy Cleansing Foam
• Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Pure Retinol Express Smoothing Eye Mask (1 pair)
• Bio-Performance LiftDynamic Eye Treatment
• Ultimate Power Infusing Concentrate
• Rouge Rouge Lipstick RD501 Ruby Copper
What I love about this particular gwp is that it contains some tried and true Shiseido products: I love that cleansing foam, and the eye mask is a guilty pleasure of mine. But it also contains new products that I’ve been wanting to try, like the serum and the Rouge Rouge lipstick!! Have you seen Temptalia’s post on the lipsticks? That post made me want to run out and buy all of them! The shade in the gwp wouldn’t have been my first choice, here’s what Ruby Copper looks like as per Temptalia:
But I’m excited to give the formula a try. My picks from the Rouge Rouge Lipsticks are: RD715 Rose Crush, RD716 Red Queen (check out this review post from Beauty Isles), and RD306 Liaison.
And how pretty is the pouch? It has a light pink lining with a grey outer layer in a laser cut design, and a wrist strap. It’s a keeper, for sure. The Shiseido gwp at Hudson’s Bay started Sept 7th and runs until the 18th, while supplies lasts (although, I’ve not known Shiseido gwp to run out… Clinique, that’s a whole other story!)
I’m patting myself on the back for sticking to my guns and only buying ONE item and only skincare. The Rouge Rouge lipsticks were calling out to me but they will have to wait… 😛
Do you only shop for makeup during gwp time? I know people who only buy during gwp, which makes a lot of sense… and takes a lot of self control!
