Gosh 40% off + a recent shimmery look

First, thank you for all the recommendations so far! One thing though, please note I do prefer more specific recommendations so those may have a better chance of winning a surprise :) Note that for fairness's sake I won't be publishing any entries until after the deadline.

Anyway, thanks to Rasilla, I found out that there is a 40% off Gosh sale at Shoppers Drug Mart today, and tomorrow (May 7 to 8). I think this is the first time I've seen them discounted so much so hurry! If you manage to get to a location by midnight tonight, they are having their Spend $50 and get a $10 store credit until the end of today.

If you can't make it until after May 8 they are still discounted 20% for the rest of the week. I believe this sale is on most of their products, but check with the cashier before you pay. The flyer says the discount is on "selected products", but even the store associates couldn't tell me which were the specific products. Today I bought the Velvet Touch liners and the Multicoloured blush, and those did turn out to be 40% off. Check out the lovely Rae's review of the Velvet Touch eyeliner here. I had to get some to try, since she said it stayed on better than MUFE for her.

Here is a closer look at a palette I acquired recently, thanks to Yumeko :)

The colours are shimmery to the point that they look almost wet.

I'm greatly intrigued by the palette ^^ Like everything else, it looks fab on you!!

I hope you love your GOSH liners, by the way! I so wish I had time to go makeup shopping before the sale ends to stock up on them, but with finals, I honestly don't have time to leave the house for the next few weeks. Grr, school :P

[Off topic-ish...Am I the only one who sometimes feels not pretty enough to be a beauty blogger? Wish I always looked as good as you do :).]

Guess you are still stuck in the May Flowers month :P

OMG I was sooo MAD, I went to two places yesterday and they didn't have the colours I wanted for the eyeliners in the pencil or the liquid liner! So I ended up not being able to get the 10 credit thing...

So I picked them up today :T
But excited cause the line I drew on my hand yesterday didn't come off for a really long time...lets hope it works well on my eye :P

MiuMiu said...

First of all, I LOVE LOVE LOVE your outfit! It's SO cute! I'm so sad that I don't have access to GOSH cosmetics here in the US, I've heard so much about their lip paints! Sigh, if only they carried the brand here...

Blair said...

Oooh, I've never considered that! The earrings will definitely be out and you don't have to worry, the bracelet is winning by a large margin hahaha
