Shoppers Drug Mart Cosmetic beauty Haul

Shoppers Drug Mart had an extra points even yesterday
spend $75 get 18000 points
which means that spend $75 and get $25 worth of points
The shoppers drug mart which located @ bayview village is the only shoppers that sells chanel cosmetics!!!!
So I did some makeup shopping~~

I finally got my first urban decay naked eye shadow palette 
I am usually super cheap when it comes to eye shadows
I got my most eye shadows from those typical "purchase with gift" events that department stores usually have
to be honest, those eye shadows are not so great
I was debating for a long time between Naked 1 and Naked 2
Naked 1 suited my skin tone more
but I might grab the Naked 2 palette in the future
So Naked 1 comes in a velvet case and a sample of eye primer potion, also a brush
I was playing with all the makeups I bought after I got home
I fell in love with this palette instantly
these eye shadows are so creamy
and so pigmented
however I don't know if it's long lasting on my skin
because I have not yet try it

The second items I got from urban decay is the 24/7 glide on eye pencil
the color I got is zero which is black
This is probably my favourite eye pencil
I got a sample from my december 2012 ipsy bag
After I got it, I wear it almost everyday
It's so easy to apply, and it doesn't smudge at all
the texture is so creamy
even tho I only discovered this eye pencil last month,
but i am sure i can't live without it 

a swatch of the black 24/7 eye pencil and the chanel spring 2013 rose gold eye pencil
Chanel cosmetics never go on sale
and not in any cosmetic warehouse sales
so this shopper drug extra point event is the perfect time to get some cosmetics from Chanel
I tried some cosmetics and skin cares from Chanel years ago
I didn't like their makeups, 
because it's pricy and on my skin,
it didn't impressive me @ all
so stop buying makeups and skin cares from Chanel except lip balms
I was tempted by all the Chanel S/S 2013 makeup reviews 
and I was looking for a high lighter
and when I saw this limited edition Illuminating Powder
I knew I had to have it!!!!!!!
It is expensive for a Illuminating Powder, 
I think it's 74 before tax
but it is so worth it
This illuminating powder comes with a black velvet pouch
this lil velvet pouch has a tiny double cc logo @ the front
and it has two compartments
the first compartment is for the brush 
and the second compartment is for the powder 
This powder is the prettiest powder I have ever seen
It's so detailed
It has a hint of rose ish color to it
also it has a lil bit shimmer
at least for me, I don't think I will apply this all over the face
I will jst use this as a highlighter

The second item I got from Chanel is a powder blush
the color is 76 Frivolve
this is from the 2013 S/S line as well
I picked this up because I want a matte blush
I love my Nars orgasm
it has lil shimmers in it
and I never tried a matt blush before
so this Chanel 76 Frivolve blush is perfect
It's coral and peachy color
as usual, it comes in a small velvet dust bag
and it comes with a brush with double cc logo 

The third item I got from Chanel is a eye liner pencil
Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long Lasting Eyeliner 
in the color of 89 Rose
This is from the 2013 S/S collection as well
I am not a big fan of Chanel eye pencils
because I find them can be very easily smudged
I heard some negative reviews on this particular eye pencil 
however the reasons that I still got it 
it's because this is a rose gold eye liner
I love rose gold
and it's super unique to wear a rose gold eye liner on the waterline
also i think that makeups are a very personal, 
it react differently on everyone
This Stylo Yeux waterproof Long Lasting Eyeliner is only for waterline!!!

The last thing I got from Chanel is a lipstick 
Rouge Allure Velvet 
Luminous Matte Lip Colour 33 La Distinguee
My bff picked this color for me
I never tried a lipstick before
I am always been a lip balm girl 
but my bff is a lipstick junkie
so I trust her opinion 
It's a matte color 
which I think it's perfect for me skin tone and good for everyday use
The packaging of this lipstick is super fancy
there is a gold button which has the double cc logo on
push the gold button to get the lipstick out
I find that very interesting

St.Ives products are on sale @ shoppers drug mart
This is my favourite face scrub
I fninshed 2 or 3 bottles already
I use this once a week
the sent is very pleasant
and after used this scrub,
my face doesn't feel uncomfortable or super dry
I never tried the gentle version

These products are the majority of the things I got from Shoppers yesterday
until next time
