The Canadian Peeps!

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.




Where to shop!


So I do have a list/link somewhere with brands and where they are found.  I'll try and dig it out and if you want it pm me Smiley Wink


For those who don't know...


Shoppers Drug Mart and Murale have a wonderful loyalty program and your points are worth "cash" in store.


The Bay is bringing in more brands... just recently Burberry. I'm thinking we will see more good things come.  They also have a VIP program... I am not too sure how it all works but it applies to all purchases from the store and you get a 20$ off 100$ makeup purchase coupon almost every month... Like who wouldn't want that!  Hello MAC!


Beautylish ships to Canada and they are FAST!  Order processed and shipped within the hour and arrives the next day!


Now that we have Nordies in Canada you might be able to call a counter and get items shipped to you.  Some things you can get shipped from the site.


Apparently Saks is coming.  I believe The Bay is the one who will be owning them and bring them in.


If you get a good SA at Holts you can also get stuff shipped to you.


Sorry been MIA from this board a long time.

Sending good vibes your way! Which Bay was that?

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I just came back from the MUFE event at Sephora Toronto Eaton Centre where I got 2 brushes engraved. You can only get three letters max. They suggested doing initials, but luckily my best friend's nickname is only three letters and I just decided to go with the first three letters of my name. I also received the special gift with purchase (of $75+). Here it is:2013-11-23 14.46.58.jpg

There are 3 lip minis including a Lab Shine Pearly lip gloss in S2, a lipstick in N39, and lipstick in N21 all in a medium sized clear plastic MUFE Make up bag. I love mini lipsticks, so I'm pretty happy with the gift. 

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

That is a pretty good gift! I love mini lipsticks too.

One Gala done one to go Smiley Wink


So it wasn't super busy but I did go in the middle of the day during the week.  I got my make-up done by MAC  and to my surprise I had to buy 50$ worth of products for this.  I was told that the make-up was complementary when you buy the ticket so not too impressed with that.  She did a really nice job though.  They had music and people going around with food. Did enter a draw for something lol.  Super disappointed with NARS.  You had to buy 150$ to get a gift so I passed.  Got a body cream from a company I wasn't familiar with and received a gwp.  Me and my mom combined our purchases at that counter so we could save 20$.  She also got something and received a gwp. I also added a butter london duo.  She made a purchase at Lancome and got a gwp and was eligible to get he 65$ kit and we did.  Saved 10$ on that and got another gwp Smiley Wink


Will be doing another gala tomorrow.  Really looking forward to that one Smiley Happy



Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Thanks so much for the update!]


Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Just posted on Bite's FB page:


Visit the BITE Lip Lab at Sephora Sherway Gardens tomorrow & Saturday from 11-7pm and create your own custom lip colour! Perfect for yourself or as a gift for the lipstick lover in your life.



I must say they do have some of the worst customer service I have EVER come across.  I might stop buying from them because of it.

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I love Bite lip products, too bad Sherway Gardens is really out of the way for me. 

I'm really sorry to hear that, do you mind elaborating on your CS experience with Bite? I'm a little curious.

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

SALE - Chapters dot ca


Tokyomilk, Butter London, Cake and EOS lip packs! Most of the Tokyomilk is OOS though.

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Sorry I was wrong about the redemption at SDM being this Friday - it is the weekend of the 30th!

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Thanks! Smiley Happy

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Thought so Smiley Happy An SA at SDM told me that it was happening in a couple weeks. Guess she was right Smiley Happy 

Yay! Free stuff on a non-pay week Smiley Happy

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Hey Cdn ladies check your orders as my last 5 of 6 orders had too high a tax rate (veronika brought my attention to it). Sephora isn't acknowledging there's a problem either. Apparently the problem started in August when they changed shipping with Borderfree

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

SDM - Just received that e-mail!



Re: The Canadian Peeps!

just got that e-mail too, but I don't own a printer Smiley Sad

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I didn't even know about this !!!!! darrrrn

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Smart phone?

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Super excited!  Tomorrow will be my first of 2 gala's at The Bay.  I'm doing two of them because one Bay has NARS and the other one doesn't.  I booked the first once which is Saturday because it sounded fun and it's the same day as my birthday Smiley Wink  Hope I get to win something lol.  Then I booked the other one which is tomorrow because that Bay has NARS and the one where I'm going to on Sat doesn't...  I'm hoping lost of goodies and gwp. Smiley Very Happy

Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Have fun and do let us know how they go (and early happy b-day!)

Re: The Canadian Peeps!


Re: The Canadian Peeps!

I think there is a bonus redemption this Friday at SDM - they are calling it mega, but it's lamer than previous year mega redemptions.  95K points for $210, 50K points for $105, and 38K points for $70.  I'm not sure if they will do another (bigger redemption in Dec) but they usually do.



Re: The Canadian Peeps!

Oh cool!  Did you get an e-mail?  I bought a stereo/alarm clock one year with my points.  Still works great! Smiley Happy
