SDM Redemption Haul

A couple of weeks ago, Shoppers Drug Mart oddly had an one-day bonus redemption on a Friday. Usually, they have their redemptions on the weekend. Does not matter to me as I have been eyeing on a few products I want to get and they rarely go on sale.

I only did a $100 redemption and I picked up these products: CoverGirl Outlast 3-in-1 foundation, Benefit Porefessional primer, PurMinerals 4-in-1 pressed mineral makeup and Bourjois Baked Blush.

I picked up the shade 950 warm beige

In the short 2 weeks since I got this, this has become my go-to foundation. It has light to medium coverage. Blends very well and does not give me the heavy foundation sticky feel. Love this!

This is my first product bought from PurMinerals. This is a 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup.

From their website:

More than a mineral foundation, 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation is a natural mineral makeup concealer, powder and SPF 15 protection all in one. The cornerstone of the Pür Minerals line, this mineral makeup foundation is pure mineral pigment ground to the smoothest texture and bound with organic shea butter and vitamin E. This full-coverage mineral foundation is good for your skin. Vegan friendly. Paraben-free. Gluten-free.
  • Pür Minerals mineral makeup foundation does not contain harsh chemical dyes, alcohol, fragrance or preservatives.
  • 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation includes titanium and zinc, which provide an all-natural barrier from the elements.
  • Pür Minerals Pressed Mineral Foundation is easy to use without the typical mineral mess.
  • Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation is good for every skin type and condition, from oily skin to dry, mature types.

I am drawn to the 4-in-1 multi-function powder. Easy, breezy, just swipe the powder and you have foundation, concealer, SPF and powder all applied at the same time. Awesome for rush mornings when you only have a few minutes left. 

I have only tried it for  a few times and so far I'm quite pleased with it. Gives me the coverage I want and it has been the easiest no fuss no mess mineral foundation powder I have used.

I got it in the shade Golden Medium

Nice packaging


Bourjois Blush in shade 34 Rose D'Or

Looks very dolly-pink in the pan

When swatched on my arm, it does not look that Barbie pink. It is a very pretty soft pink.

I love Bourjois blushes as they are very pigmented. Only complaint I have is the blush tends to dry out a bit after a month or so, making it not as easy to swipe with a brush as compared to when I first got it. 

The last product I got was the Benefit Porefessional face primer. This is my second tube and I absolutely love it. It is the most silky primer I have used. Making it very easy to apply and perfect for summer time especially when you don't want extra product applied to make your skin sticky
