I am due to write the next installment of my spring beauty trends but I decided to give reviews of some goodies that I found right here in SK. I know I obsess on finding stuff online or while in Canada but I discovered if you are willing to pay the price for certain things here in SK you can find them. Which brings me back to why I started this blog which was to share my knowledge with women here....
First some Sacha goodies from Dollar Saver. I've never warmed up to Sacha cosmetics since I was a fan of Iman Cosmetics way back when and then discovered MAC but I am thinking about investing in some more of the products. Its a cosmetics line out of Trinidad geared to women of different ethnic groups that don't really get much attention in the mainstream lines such as black women, indian and asian. I got the lip palette with 6 colours (45 EC or 17 US) , very pigmented and smooth colours which I love. And I also got the Fix it 2 in 1 Powder Foundation in Caramel ($45 EC or $17 US) which is comparable to MACs Studio Fix Foundation Plus Powder which I use currently. The store also sells sacha products cheaper than the website which totally surprised me. If you are interested in checking out sacha products http://www.sachacosmetics.com.

I also got some Santee glitter liners from Dollar saver. Can't remember the price but the blues really show up unlike gold which needs about 2 to 3 applications.
Then I went to Body Haven Spa because they tend to sell Revlon and Maybelline and other drugstore brands found in the US and Canada but not at reasonable prices. I got a Maybelline eyestudio silk shadow palette in green envy- love the colours can't wait to try a look with the green and the glitter liners. It costs 45EC or 17 US when in Walmart it would be around 6US. I got the Revlon ColorStay Mineral Foundation with SPF 10 in medium deep on sale for EC39.95. It was in another store in TDC mall for 55EC. I wanted to try this for several reasons- I like Revlon colorstay foundations and I wanted to try a mineral foundation and I saw Halle Berry in a mag wearing it. It does blend in well and it kind of gives my skin a certain glow. I like it over all.
