Free US shipping (they still don’t ship to Canada, dammit!) at Stilla. Generally, I don’t post free shipping (because it’s so easy to get), but this one has NO MINIMUM, and no required purchase!
The answer is yes. Yes, I am the queen of contouring. Why is this, you ask? Below is my face with under eye concealer and Everyday Minerals blush in “Swimming Pool”.Swimming Pool is more of a red-based contour than a true blush, in my opinion. It’s really just great; buildable but still fairly pigmented, and matte (a requirement in my books. I can’t stand shimmer). But the real seller? Look at those cheekbones!! :P Not to mention, it can be blended on super-lightly to act as a “true” blush, if you so wish. It’s like a dual-purpose one (I would assume the intent is similar to Benefit’s Dallas? Blush/bronzer mix.) so you can contour and give colour to your face all at once!
I mean, if you see me in real life, I do have a pretty good bone structure. But nothing this fantastic.
Lesson of the day? Throw in a small order of Swimming Pool the next time you’re doing an EM haul!!

This GHD ad has been banned – because it is “causing religious offence”.
Honest truth? I kinda like it. I like how there are beautiful women of different nationalities, and different languages – not to mention, everything about the ad is gorgeous.

Well.ca is like an online drugstore – that only charges $3 for shipping within Canada! (For all those American readers: just so you know, this is like gold for us. We get charged obscene amounts by most companies for shipping.)
StyleNotes and Retail Me Not both have online purchase code listings – with ratings, so you can tell if they’re expired! (I prefer Retail Me Not – it’s fantastic, and there are a ton of listings – but StyleNotes is pretty good too)
Freebies Canada is a good resource for surefire Canadaian freebies; RedFlagDeals and Smart Canucks are both forums for Canadian freebies (with more listings than Freebies Canada, but they aren’t always as reliable)
Lastly, Sale Event appears to be the up-and-coming, but they don’t sell much yet. I’ll check on them in a few months, if I remember, and get back to you guys.
