For once, I have a haul post thats actually current! :P I went to Niagara this weekend and stopped by the outlets on the US side. The mall was actually less exciting than I remembered (or maybe my tastes have just changed) so I didn't spend much time there. Its an old looking mall with the standard outlet stores like Coach, Ralph Lauren, Banana Republic...etc. I did get a few things though:
Earmuffs at the Burberry outlet:
The outside is made out of cashmere and shearling, keeps my ears nice and warm :)
From Coach, a tote bag in their Optic Signature fabric. I've actually told myself I don't want Coach anymore but I couldn't help this because 1. I've been needing a larger bag for a while now, but nothing else from other stores have caught my eye so far; and 2. It was on sale! :P
It came in white too (similar to the sling bag I got from Woodbury Outlets last time) but yellow just seemed right this time, maybe because I'm looking forward to summer....
Finally a CCO haul of course:
L-R: Fafi Powder blush in Hipness, Blushcreme in Blossoming, Beauty Powder blush in True Romantic.
The MAC selection at this CCO was quite crappy compared to others I've heard about. Here's what they had that I could remember:
Eyeshadows: Blanc Type, Poison Pen, some Starflash colours, all Neo Sci Fi colours, Trip 4 palette.
Pigments: Gilded Green, Off the Radar, burgundy pigment from Overrich, Dark Soul, Lovely Lily, Sweet Sienna
Blush: some Beauty Powder blushes from last year's collection, X-Rocks and Spaced Out from Neo Sci Fi, Melba powder blush, Sweet William blushcreme...and some more that I can't remember. I was surprised they still had Emote too.
Nordstroms Color Forms palettes & cheek products
Mattene lipsticks from Cult of Cherry, and Poise from 2007
Microfine Refinisher and some other skincare products
Studio Tech powders, and their stick foundations & concealers
Copper Diamond Shimmerbrick
Shimmering Nudes palette
Pink Raspberry palette
empty lip palettes
black carry case
In Bloom blushes - tons of colours
various moisturizers and creams, including the Moisture Surge one (but it didn't seem that cheap to me at US$25 with the current exchange rate)
I was really hoping to score some mineralized blushes or brushes from MAC but oh well. Crappy selection really saved my wallet :P Ahhh....the best outlet shopping ever was still at Woodbury Premium outlets in NJ. If only it were closer :)
