Yesterday I stopped by a newly renovated Shoppers Drug Mart in our downtown core... it has a MASSIVE beauty boutique with lines such as Bare Minerals, Clinique, Dior, Lancome, Clarins, and many more! Apparently it is one of two Canadian AAA stores, the other is in Toronto.

The really cool thing is that the cosmeticians working there are trained on all the lines, so unlike a department store with different beauty counters, they can talk to you about all the different lines...

I walked out with an awesome Dior bronzer and a CoverFX powder. Love them both!

Good to know!

Shopper's has been renovating and/or building new stores all over SW Ontario. We've got two new ones in our city and they are quite large. I wonder if their beauty section has Bare Minerals. I may have to go look.

They had awesome starter kits for $75 (valued at $215) with a bunch of products and brushes and a how-to dvd!

If you need something, you know I would only charge a small commission to buy it and ship it to ya. ;)

The one at the Bullfrog mall? Or the one up past Zehrs? Bwahaha. I hate that there are two dinky Shopper's that close together- just make a nice big one. Hey- maybe they'll do that where the old pizza hut and ryan's were. Did you notice that all the stores in the Ryan's plaza are gone?? I just noticed that the other day.

I bought the starter kit years ago.. the only thing i really use now is the powder base or the transparent powder to take away shine.

We have a few of those Shopperses with the Beauty Boutiques in them. They're really nice but I haven't checked out the stuff at all yet. I like how they make you walk through it before you actually enter the store though. I'm surprised I haven't done more in there because of that. ;)

Yes, all the new ones I've been into have the large beauty section right when you walk in the store. I always just make a beeline to whatever I'm in there after. I do love a good drug store. But I'm very loyal to Pharma Plus. lol

Actually I like Pharma, too, because of the Air Miles. We always do a big Pharma run when they have their 10x Air Miles days. :)
