Mini Beauty Haul!

A little while back I was shopping in Walmart and I was browsing the beauty section, and I came across The Real Techniques makeup brushes by Samantha Chapman! I have heard so many beauty guru's from the UK rave about them, and I had never really looked for them, because I was convinced that they were not available in Canada! I was so excited and I instantly had to have them, but I decided to wait, because I recently splurged on some high-end foundation. But last night I visited Wal Mart again and I could not resist, so I picked up the brushes and some nail polish! 

I bought the Core Collection and the Travel Essentials set, for $18.97 each. I thought there might be something wrong with Wal Mart's pricing because on the Real Techniques website, each set is listed for $40! But I am so excited to finally have my hands on these brushes and to actually use them! 

I then picked up two new nail polishes... Did I really need them? No. But I couldn't resist. I originally was looking for colours from the newer Essie collections, but apparently the new colours fly off the shelves the second they get them in. The colours I decided on are Essie's Tart Deco and Essie's Fifth Avenue. "Tart Deco" is from the 2010 Art of Spring Collection and is a peachy coral colour. While "Fifth Avenue" is an orange based red, that is from an unknown collection.. (google failed me!). Apparently I was into the orangey based nail polishes when I was shopping yesterday.

  1. I didn't know Walmart had Real Techniques brushes! I'm going to have to go buy some because I have been dying to try them!
