Spend Your Points Haul: Lise Watier Pastel Power, Urban Decay Theodora, Dior Cherie Bow etc.

So today I participated in Shoppers Drug Mart's Spend Your Points event. I redeemed 80,000 Optimum points for $200 worth of cosmetics. I adore this program! I did two top redemptions at Christmas and got so many goodies! I almost always participate in SDM's 20x the points events, so as you can imagine, my points build up really quickly! If you don't know about Shoppers Drug Mart's Optimum Program, you can learn more, here.

Today I went to an SDM that carries more high end brands like Dior and Guerlain. They also carry Urban Decay, and that's why I went to this particular location!

Everything I bought is a new release/spring collection:

 Lise Watier Pastel Power Eyeshadow Quartet ($36), Dior 5 Couleurs Cherie Bow Edition in 854 Rose Charmeuse ($61), Urban Decay Oz The Great and Powerful in Theodora ($58), Smashbox Love Me Lip Enhancing Gloss in Adore Me ($22) and Lise Watier Eye Shine in Vert Sarcelle ($19).

I called the store in advance a couple days ago so they could put aside the Urban Decay Theodora and  Lise Watier Pastel Power Quartet. I was dying for both of these! I purchased a couple of other Pastel Power products last week, and I'm totally loving them. I think the Lise Watier quad will be so pretty for spring! These are not shades I would normally wear, but I'm super excited to try them! :)

Urban Decay's Oz palettes are something I've been seriously lemming since I first heard about them a few weeks back. The colours are beautiful, and I'll be sure to swatch them later on! This palette came with a travel size 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero and a Super-Saturated High-Gloss Lip Colour in Theodora (which I used before this pic...sorry!).


The Dior palette was something I bought on a whim. I had nothing else in mind and needed to get to $200. I thought the shades in this were gorgeous. I love the hot pink and black!

I really wanted something from the Smashbox Love Me collection as I know it is selling out fast! I swatched the Lip Enhancing Gloss in Adore Me, in the store and thought it was really pretty.

Lastly, I got the latest Eyeshine from the Lise Watier collection that was released for the Spring to match the Pastel Power Quartet.

Here's a couple swatches of the UD Lip Colour, the Smashbox Gloss and the Eyeshine.

I'd love to hear if you participated in Spend your Points today! Please let me know what you got. :) This promo runs until this Monday, the 11th, if you weren't able to get to a store today. Also, there are whisperings of a Spend your Points event at Murale for this coming week. I'm hoping it's true!
Thanks for reading! :)


  1. Great haul, a lot more exciting than mine! Some redemptions I will redeem for only make-up items as well! It's too bad my local ones don't carry Urban Decay

    1. Oh that sucks, glossy. If you're in the GTA, there is one in Whitby that carries UD! I'm gonna go take a look at what you got. I'm sure it's good stuff! :)

    2. Whitby! Holy geez that's quite the trek! A friend of mine used to own a bar out there ages ago, used to have quite the adventures out in that neck of the woods. I am out north of the GTA now just outside of Orangeville ;)

    3. Orangeville, yep that's a bit far from Whitby! lol I'm just a town over, so it's not far from me. I'm hoping they bring UD to more SDM's in the future! :)

  2. What in the world... UD at shoppers drug mart???? Do you know if any of the SDMs downtown have UD? :0

    1. Hey Steph, I just looked it up...there's one on Bay, and one on Queen Street West that carry UD! :)

  3. Love your blog & like reading about your haul adventures :)

    I'm nominating you for a Liebster Award! :)

  4. I have an optimum card but it's taking me forever to get point lol, I think the key is the 20x the rewards..gotta do the splurging on those days hehe:P

    1. That's exactly it, and that's exactly what I do! Your points will grow so fast, and then you can splurge for mega redemption! So fun! :) There's also a 20x this week if you spend $75 on cosmetics!

      Thanks for all your lovely comments and for stopping by my blog! :)
