In a grand return to geekiness after an exam-related TV-watching hiatus, I’ve decided to write up a post I’ve been itching to do for some time now.

Anyone who knows me knows that I went through a serious Doctor Who phase the summer before last. I watched all seven of the seasons that were out at the time.

Deal Alert!: Shoppers Drug Mart BOGO Lipsticks & Lip glosses

Shoppers Drug martBOGO Lip Colour offer Coupon Dec5

Here we go again!

Shoppers Drug Mart is having another 3-hour sale. This time it’s lipstick and lip gloss, and it’s on Thursday December 5 from 5-8pm.

It excludes lipliners, balms, and prestige lipsticks and glosses. It seems everything else is fair game!

Now would be an awesome time to pick up some of the new drugstore lip offerings, like the Maybelline Colour Elixirs, and the Revlon Matte and Lacquer Balms. (It would also be a great time to nab some Revlon Lip Butters, my absolute favourite lip product…)

Is this gonna be a weekly thing? I hope so. Hopefully mascara’s next week; my Maybelline Illegal Lengths is drying out!
