Shoppers haul

Last Saturday, Shoppers had the 20x points, so I was there picking up a few things. Nothing major 🙂

The first item on the top left corner is Gosh Cover Me Up Makeup Mousse in Champagne(#04), on clearance for CAD5.25 (reg. CAD21). I never knew Gosh had mousse makeup, so I thought I could compare it to the Maybelline Dream Mousse I had.

Right below it are Gosh Effect Powders in Rusty Nail and White Diamond, CAD3.25 (reg. CAD15), pretty colours.

On the right is Quo Prime Time Eye and Face primer (2 separate containers in 1 bottle) which I didn’t know Quo had. Cool concept, don’t you think? I’d love to see how well they work. Oh, and it was on sale for CAD9 this week (reg. CAD16). I also got a Quo Stay Put Lipstick in Seduction, a cool red colour. Quo lines have been extended quite intensively, I have to say.

Also found Duwop Twilight Venom on sale for CAD8.99 (reg. around CAD16, I can’t remember), thought I could give it a try, at least for the cool name. I’m into red and dark red lip colours lately, as they show up better on my pigmented lips.

From the nail polish shelf, I saw this Nicole by OPI Black Cat-cha Later on clearance for CAD3.99 – the only shade at this price. It’s a lovely dark burgundy shade, could join my dark Nicole army, lol.

And believe it or not, Shoppers does have GWPs, at least at this location I went to. Maybe because I was spending quite an amount of money (half of it was for the swap I am doing), the lady pulled out some stuff underneath the counter to give me as a gift 🙂

And it was a bright red Puma shoulder bag and a sample tube of La Roche-Posay (another Canadian brand) Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel, supposed to be for acne/ oily skin. Great to try!

I feel good as I gave Quo some attention with this trip to Shoppers (party thanks to the swap), as it probably deserves it. Shoppers could do a little more PR work for its home brand, as its product quality so far is not bad at all.

There were a few other Quo products on sale this week, so feel free to check them out. Words on twitter is that Shoppers is doing a “secret” x20 Pharmaprix Optimum points event tomorrow. You’ll need to bring in this coupon. Note that it said Pharmaprix, so it might not be a nationa-wide but rather a province-wise event. Plesae check before you use it.
