L'oreal Warehouse Sale Fall 2014 Haul ( Sept 20- Oct 12 2014)

Here it is, finally!!! :)  I've been waiting for this sale for the longest time. Everytime I go to Walmart I would stop by the L'oreal and Maybelline section to check out the quads and the infallible eyeshadows and never buy them coz I know they will be much cheaper at the warehouse sale. I was able to get a few Maybelline tattoos on sale at Target a few months back and loved it so much that I wanted more! So as you can see I hoarded the Maybelline quads and tattoos :) LOL.

Ok, here's what I got:
130,400, 300, 100, 200, 140
I got 6 Maybelline Quads for $2.75 each, reg $ 9.96. Thats is definitely a steal!

Here are the rest of the Maybelline products I got:
Master Glaze in Plums Up - $ 3.75, reg $9.96
Master Highlight in Nude - $ 3.75, reg $12.96
Baby Lips - $2.75, reg $ 3.96
Bigeyes Falsies Mascara - $3.75, reg $ 8.96
Dream Lumi concealer in Beige - $ 3.75 - reg $ 9.96
Color tattoos in Rich Mahogany, Edgy Emerald, Electric Blue and Mossy Green - $ 2.75 each , reg $ 6.96

Here's the L'oreal products:
Voluminous Power 24H mascara - $ 2.75, reg $ 8.96
True Match foundation in Suntan - $ 6.75, reg $ 12.98
Magic BB in Fair - $ 5.75, reg $ 10.96
Visible Lift in Classic Ivory - $ 4.25, reg $ 5.99 (
Youth Code BB Cream in Medium - $ 4.75, reg $ 19.96
Quads in Neon Skirt and Midnight - $3 each, reg $ 9.96
Infallible eyeshadows in Bronze Divine and Magnetic Coral - $3 ea, reg $9.32
Lipgloss in Infinite Fuchsia - $ 3, reg $ 7.96

A couple of Garnier products:
Hydra recharge - $2, also on sale at walmart for the same price!
Ultralift Eye roller - $ 4.75, reg $ 16.47

And lastly....
Lancome Hypnose Star mascara - $ 18.75, reg $33.50 - the most expensive one in this haul!

I am totally pleased with what I got and in total I saved about 60% off retail ( compared to Walmart prices). So again, never buy these products at full price! Be patient and wait for the warehouse sales! :)

The Revlon sale is also ongoing at the International Center, in case you want Revlon, Cover Girl and other P & G products...

Until next time...

L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paint - Review and Swatches

Hey Glamourose peeps! It's been over a month since my last post and I have a lot of stuff I wanted to share with you :) First is this LA Girl Glazed Lip Paint! I've seen a lot of good reviews and I got curious about this product, however I can't find any Canadian reseller online! It's probably at the Designer Cosmetic Shop but I'm sure the price will be more than double ( sucks to be in Canada sometimes :( ) Anyways, I found it at and their shipping charges are very reasonable. They sell it for $2.99 each but  if you buy a set of 6 shades  ( which was the original release - now they have 18 shades), you can get it for $15.99 and shipping to Canada is only $7+! I got the shades Coy, Bombshell, Hot Mess, Baby Doll, Blushing and Pin-Up.

Here are the swatches:
LA Girl Glazed Paint Blushing

LA Girl Glazed Paint Bombshell
LA Girl Glazed Paint Coy
LA Girl Glazed Paint Hot Mess
Hot Mess
LA Girl Glazed Paint Baby Doll
Baby Doll
LA Girl Glazed Paint Pin-Up

My favorite is the shade Blushing - it's like a nude pink brown. Sorry the pictures does not do justice to the actual color :( Bombshell is Fuchsia, Coy is Purple, Hot Mess is Orange, Pin-Up is Red and baby Doll is Barbie Pink. All these shades are very opaque and pigmented. I used a lip brush to apply to kinda lighten it up, otherwise it will be very intense. It has a minty feel when you apply it  due to the peppermint oil but it does not feel dry even after hours of wear and no sticky feeling. It also has a long wear time and fades nicely. I would say it lasted about 3-4 hours on me, even after drinking and eating.

I really love this product and for the price I can honestly say, you get more than what you paid for! This is definitely a good buy for me! I hope to get more.... soon! :)
