Why did I get this set? I truly have no idea. I plead temporary insanity. The $16 price tag I guess was too much for me to handle!
- Boscia Tsubaki Cleansing Oil Gel 30ml/1oz $7CAD or $5.60 US VALUE
- Philosophy Mircrodelivery Exfoliating Face Wash 30ml/1oz $4.13CAD or $3.38 US VALUE
- First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser 1oz/28.3g $6CAD or $4.75 US VALUE
- Peter Thomas Roth Pro Strength 40% Triple Acid Peel 1 4ml dose $9.17CAD or $7.33 US VALUE
I think the only thing in here I really want to try is the Peter Thomas Roth Acid Peel, and at a $7.33 value, I WAY overpaid for this set. Sigh.......... Oh well, guess I have some little travel sized cleansers to gift!
For $35 I really don't know how you can pass up this set! There was zero chance I was going to not walk home with this glittery rose gold makeup bag filled with fantasticness!
Inside you get:

A TOTAL VALUE OF $131.73CAD
A TOTAL VALUE OF $112.55USD!!Not too shabby for $35USD! The two items in here that I already wanted and were already on my shopping list to buy were the exfoliKate and the THIRSTYMUD which alone have a value of 42.29USD making the rest of the items totally free!
So I showed you all the Smashbox On The Rocks Palette last week (an Ulta exclusive) and while I managed to refrain and NOT buy it this past weekend (for myself), I did get one for a girlfriend. Because its not mine, I wont swatch it, but I will show you all it.
And inside is a booklet with some how to looks.
And then the gorgeous palette! Just like the Tarte ridiculousness of the names being NOT on the palette in any way but on a plastic sheet that lays over the shadows, that is how this one comes. It is seriously beyond annoying and frustrating. BAH!
So yeah, this is what you can expect to see in the upcoming days. I promise I will still review all the Chanel and MAC and such that I bought in Toronto, but I am going to hold off until I can finish and get caught up with all these new and limited edition sets so you can see them in time to make up your mind!
A stunning, limited-edition set with nine mini Studded Kiss Lipsticks that comfortably coat lips with bold color for 10 hours.
What it does:
This collection of stunning hybrid lipsticks makes the perfect gift for anyone who wants to explore and enhance lip looks this holiday season. Formulated with Color Cushion Technology, these lip colors offer incredible 10-hour wear, bold one-swipe application, and enticing velvet-touch comfort that leaves lips feeling supple. Featuring a spectrum of artfully crafted shades that each carry daring color: four bold reds, three statement pops of color, and two everyday classic shades—in a wide range of matte, shimmer, and metallic finishes. Each lipstick is infused with a high-quality formula, including a powerful antioxidant complex of vitamins A, C, and E, and each one offers a hint of uplifting cream brûlée fragrance. This set comes housed in an edgy-chic, black monochromatic casing designed after Kat's own studded bracelet—made to look as rock 'n' roll as the woman who wears it.
This set contains:
- 9 x 0.04 oz Lip shades in Countess (matte hot orange red), Agatha (matte pale peach nude), Adora (metallic golden red), Sexer (iridescent fluorescent pink), Wonderchilde (iridescent neon lilac), Bachelorette (matte reddish fuchsia), Mötorhead (matte black cherry), Lovecraft (matte mauve pink nude), Hexagram (matte blood red)

So this is the new GWP that will be starting...... This Saturday I think..... Anyways, its starting soon and free with a $125 purchase from a Beauty Boutique. The gift looks ok, but the it seems far disappointing in comparison to the one that Murale just had. That being said, this fake Longchamp tote looks awesome and might be a reason by itself to pick up some goodies!
The price of these bags seems to keep going up and up, this one being $45 and you get considerably less inside. I think it seems to be a trend though that the Autumn ones have far less in them than the spring ones.
That being said, for $45 and $10 off, I am ok with it because the bag is so awesome. I have actually already used the bag and think the value is there for that alone.
AVAILABLE NOW AT YOUR
Shoppers Drug Mart had bags on sale for $10 with all the money going to breast cancer. So really, it was a donation to a good cause and I just happened to get makeup!
Each one of these items (except maybe the soap) all retail for far more than $10, so this was an awesome bag!
And the second bag:
Everything together ($20 spent):
Never happened in on one of these before, and I really like the concept of bags that are clear so its not a mystery what you are getting inside. Reviews on these products are all to come in later posts!
A $65 value.
