Happy Independence Day ‘Murica!
For those Americans who don’t know what Winners is, it’s basically Marshalls/TjMaxx only better. (They are all owned by the same company inclusive of Homesense as well). I went to one of my local winners that I don’t frequent too often… There are four close to me but one is small so I rarely hit it up, under the assumption that it isn’t as good due to it’s size. I should know better, size isn’t all that matters!
What did I find while there? A whoooole plethera of goodies. I am suspicious if many of the products were brought there after the Estee Lauder sale couldn’t sell through them.
Mac Palettes, Too Faced, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Smashbox, Becca… oh my!
Most of it was still in good shape too, which if you have been into one of these discount stores you know it’s difficult to find something that hasn’t been touched all over by grubby little fingers. You might have guessed my face looked a bit like this when I started seeing all these lovely products.
What did I buy when I was there? Does anyone remember the Jaclyn Hill X Becca Debacle? Where she basically released a palette that was inconsistently made? To the point where they let people return it for their money back after any amount of time and pulled it from the shelves? Yeah me to. That was bullshit. I have never in my life seen that happen, until just recently when she DID IT AGAIN WITH MORPHE.
Anyway, I digress, at the time I wasn’t interested in the palette, I heard it was shit, and wasn’t going to take the risk for the $50 they were charging us sweet sweet Canadians. But I WOULD pay $19 for it from Winners just to talk shit about it if it truly was bad. What do you know? It’s awesome. I seriously wanted to talk shit about it, and now I can’t. I want to say I’m disappointed but I’m not because its beautiful, and is my first experience with Becca eye shadows.
I also picked up the Too Faced Natural Eyes. It would seem that after my palette declutter I needed another hit of that heroine, because since posting it, I have bought three new ones. Two neutral based and one brights. (I’m patiently awaiting your arrival Violet Voss Flamingo). I believe I paid somewhere in and around $20 for this one as well.
Do you want to know what else I bought at Winners? Pens. Glorious pens. Frixion pens. Certain types are difficult to find in Canada. Most of my Frixion pens are bought from Amazon and come here from Japan. I feel like it’s necessary for a good erasable pen. Can you even blame me? Pens are important!
What is the moral of this story? Go to Winners. Check out their beauty aisle periodically and see what they have going! Secondary moral? Buy some Frixion pens because they are THE BEST.
