Haulage Week! Essence, L’Oréal & OPI

Happy April Fool’s Day!

This week, I’ll be posting about some little hauls I’ve made recently, rather than swatches and reviews. Here’s the haulage post schedule for this week:

The last installment of Haulage Week! includes two items from Dollarama and one from Shoppers Drug Mart. From the dollar store, I picked up a purple L’Oréal mascara and one of the ugliest shades of OPI ever seen, for CA$3 apiece. From the drugstore, I got the much raved about Essence gel top coat on sale for CA$2.99.

I can normally only use waterproof mascaras due to my extremely stubborn lashes that uncurl in a slightly humid bathroom, but ever since I have been using a Korean waterproof mascara undercoat, I’ve been able to enjoy using regular mascaras! So L’Oréal Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara in Purple Pop was mine at the cool price of $3.

Dollarama also sometimes has OPI polishes, and they’ve recently had heaps of one particular shade: Uh-Oh Roll Down the Window. (I get motion sickness very easily, so this kind of speaks to me on a personal level.) As you might have guessed, it’s a kind of vomit-y, pea green shade. I’ve passed on it many times, but this time I finally bit the bullet. I might save the swatch for Halloween!

Finally, there’s been so much hype about Essence The Gel Nail Polish Top Coat that I spotted it on sale last week for $2.99 and immediately bought it. I change my polish too often to test it out properly on my fingernails, so I’ll have to try it on my toenails, instead.

Enjoy the weekend, and I should be back with swatches and reviews on Monday!

Dollarama haulage, OPI & Nicole by OPI Nail Lacquer

Haulage! Dollarama (Canada) — OPI, Nicole by OPI, Sally Hansen, & Minions

My local Dollarama (Canadian dollar store chain) usually just has some Sally Hansen, Wet n Wild, snakeskin Essies and loads of odd brands like Mariposa.

But I lucked out this week and found some OPI and Nicole by OPI (they usually have the latter, but in really boring/unfortunate colors) that piqued my interest.

Minions, Despicable Me, excited applause

I guess browns and golds are not as popular, so they end up at the dollar store! The masses’ loss is my gain!

Burt's Bees Honey Lip Balm

Dollarama Deals (Canada) — Burt’s Bees Honey Lip Balm

I found Burt’s Bees Lip Balm (made in USA) at Dollarama for CA$2. It retails for $4.89. Admittedly, it’s not my absolute favorite lip balm, but for $2, I’ll throw it into one of my handbags permanently.
