Despite my promises to shop primarily at Shoppers Drug Mart to buy most high-end makeup, I do occasionally purchase things from the Bay (I have 10$ coupons I can use once a month which is a nice incentive) and even more than occasionally, Sephora. There are still brands that only Sephora carries but mostly I still shop there because of Urban Decay and Kat Von D… and because once-in-a-blue-moon Sephora will send out discount coupons.
This is a large part in my failure to NOT SPEND there. Makeup so rarely goes on sale that when I GET Sephora coupons I ‘look’ for stuff to buy. So bad. So when I got my Congrats-You’re-A-VIB-10% off e-mail I immediately began perusing the site, only to realise like always that  Canadians aren’t allowed to use their coupons online and  By the time the stuff online I wanted came IN the coupon would probably have expired. Luckily (or unluckily?) it turned out that the e-mail had been sent out mistakenly, but I was still allowed to use the discount… and got an extra couple of days to do it.
My devotion/addiction to Dior has been well-documented, I think. Since my last post I’ve purchased 3 quints, and the most recent one was Extase Pinks which I found (you guessed it) at Sephora. As this quint was a new permanent addition to the line I wasn’t in a huge rush to get it (in fact I was planning on waiting until SDM had it and had a bonus points event to buy it), but when I went on the last valid date of the coupon it was the only thing I wanted in the store… I caved. Saving 5.80$ is pretty decent, hey? Plus it gave me enough points to redeem a sample on the e-mail the coupon got sent to, so double bonus. 🙂
I normally don’t post single-item-reviews but I did promise Haru so…
You can’t see it in the picture, but the new quads have similar cases to the Designer quads with a silver border on the case. It’s lovely 🙂 I’m not sure what the new numbering system means but 804 Extase Pinks is SUPER similar to an iridescent quint (perhaps less shimmery, but not by much). I am a sucker for pinks and I love the dark pewter shade in the upper right; I thought it was a bit similar to Argentic (which I own) but it’s a bit darker, so MUCH love for this.
Swatches in Natural Light (but no sunshine):
These were fairly light one-or-two layers of swipes; I find that for most Dior quints they appear much nicer on the eye, and I am very used to putting a good base on (you can see previous posts for this but I always use UDPP+Cream Shadow) before I even put the powders near my eye.
