Haul from Lisa's Cosmetics Sale

Lisa's Cosmetic / Fragrances Inc Sale is a warehouse sale selling products up to 80% off. This event usually runs twice a year (before Christmas and around Mother's Day) in Markham, Ontario. Products include Elizabeth Arden, Smashbox, Red Earth, many men and ladies' fragrances, Dove, and so on.

Here is my haul (not too much stuff) as I try to limit my purchases, and because I go every half a year, so if I run out anything, I can just go the next time around :) I also bought a highlighting kit that's not in the picture, and an Elizabeth Arden eye treatment cream for my mom.

From left to right:
Sally Hansen Natural Butter Lip Shine in Fresh ($0.99)
Revlon ColorStay Mineral Lipglaze in Continuous Pink (bonus gift with Revlon Highlighting Kit)
Smashbox Lip Gloss in Prep ($5.25)
Smashbox Lipstick in Candles ($ 6.99)

Every time, I make sure I pick up 1 or 2 Smashbox items since their retail price is a lot more expensive. I was contemplating if I want to buy another nude lipstick as I saw this frosty pink one... Since most of my lippies are nudes, I decided to go for this for something different! I wish they had a matte one though :S And I'm in love with the purple lip gloss.. too bad they only had it in the small version (4.5 ml)!

Left photo: all Sally Hansens in Apple, Fashionista Orange, and Peanut Shell ($0.99 each)
Right photo: Red Earth facial cleansing wipes (2 for $5), Red Earth eye make-up remover (2 for $5), and Red Earth 2V Mascara in Black ($2)

Woohoo I bought my first red nail polish! I decided to go a little away from my comfort zone (nude and pink polishes.. surprise surprise lol) I'm still deciding if I want to keep the orange one or give it to my sister's friend.

I always have several boxes of cleansing wipes in stock, but they never take off my make up completely (especially the eye area), so I also stocked up on 2 eye make-up removers (I already used one of them so it's not shown in the picture). I used to use this specific one back in high school, but one day it just disappeared, and eventually I forgot about it. Apparently, my mom threw it away because she thought I didn't use it :S Last night, I used it again and fell in love again :)

Ever since I moved home from my university residence, I've been struggling to find a good spot to take pictures. Nowhere seems to have enough space or light.. ahh the frustration! Anyway, hope you enjoyed my little haul :D
