The Canadian Peeps!

[ Edited ]

So I'd like to maintain a board for the Canadian customers.  A place where we can share our events, promos, problems etc.

 

I sometimes see deals and info for Canadians and rather then posting a new convo all the time maybe we can just share on this board.

 

I think it would be easier to communicate with each other if we only had one board to follow.

 

 - I recently posted that Nail Polish Canada has free shipping on any orders for a limited time.

 

EDITED:

 

Anyone interested in getting Tonymoly products you can contact them via their Canadian Facebook page to place an order.  5$ shipping, free over purchases 50$.  I think they have a store in Pacific Mall in Markham ON

 

Tarte now ships to Canada!

Check you local winners, mine had Stila in the light palettes for $24.99 in stock :smileyhappy: Costco also currently has four Elizabeth Arden lipglosses in pretty spring colors for $19.99.

FYI Murale has the NARS Christopher Kane collection up online for anyone who was interested in it.

The Bay has the Guerlain summer collection available online (and I've seen it in a store, too). They also have the Terracotta perfume from last year available - I'm not sure how limited that is, but when I talked to an SA at my local counter, she said she was only getting about 3 bottles in store. I think there would be more available online and in larger stores, though.

I'm sure the boutique will have a lot more!

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Yes! And the Boutique is such a nice place to shop :smileyhappy:

I rushed over there as soon as I saw this thinking they would have the new Rainbow Perles...

 

Not yet.

Sorry, mocha! :smileysad: There are still a couple more items which are being released later I believe (like the fancy new LE bronzer). It's just the regular summer line so far, with the cream eyeshadows, nail polish, lipsticks, and re-packaged Terracotta bronzers.

 

I think I heard mid-May for some of the other products, so hopefully that will be soon!

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Why do they charge for what is essentially samples? I don't get it. All the US stores have generous GWPs with orders over a certain amount throughout the year. Does Holt's ever do the same?

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

[ Edited ]

I have mixed feelings on the beauty bags. 

On one hand, I like that it's a lot cheaper than having to spend $125+ at Murale or Hudson's Bay to get a giant bag with hit or miss samples. Plus, there is the $10 voucher included. There are some higher end samples included, usually, which are harder to find.

Yet at the same time, a lot of the samples included (especially in this season's) are super small freebie type ones. Like the Dior lippie card or the TF perfume. Same with the mini YSL mascara. And Clinique samples really are dime a dozen.So it really does feel odd to literally pay money for what you can often find for free.

 

As far as I know, Holt's doesn't do big GWP like Nordstrom or other stores. I haven't seen any, but I stand to be corrected. Their GWP from brands that they  have seem to be a bit better than what you might find at Hudson's Bay, but I haven't paid careful enough attention to see if it actually is better to get it at Holt Renfrew than somewhere else.

 

I suppose in one sense, the beauty bags are akin to a subscription box. And again, I have mixed feelings on those for the reasons outlined above :smileywink:

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I've been momentarily tempted by and then passed on these every season for years for all the same reasons you state above. Also, I have a hard time believing the 'more than $100 value' line. Granted, if the bag itself was something to write home about, I might be tempted and consider the voucher and samples a bonus.

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I love these things! :smileyvery-happy:

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I was talking to a YSL MUA at the rouge event today and he said Charlotte Tilbury will be available at Holt Renfrew in a few months!

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I read it's coming in June!!! :smileyvery-happy:

YAY!!! I really hope so! I've been wanting to pick up the Pillowtalk lip liner that many rave about!

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I hope it will be there in time for us to order the LE summer collection!

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I'm so excited for this. Thanks for sharing!
