Friday Find: A Can't Miss Beauty Event at Hudson's Bay

Every year around this time, I take stock of my expired, gungy, out-of-date makeup and engage in a little makeup bag spring cleaning. Once I clean up all my brushes and lament the fact that I'm a product hoarder who doesn't use half of the stuff that I buy (the first step is admitting you have a problem), then I make a list of all of the cool new products I can't wait to try out (does that make the second step denial?)

The Global Trends Beauty Event happens this Sunday April 28th starting at 9 am at Hudson's Bay and I can't wait to hit it up. Tickets are $10 which gives you $8 off any cosmetics or fragrance purchase (before taxes) with $2 from every ticket sold going towards the charity Look Good Feel Better.  I'm excited to check out the straight-off-the-runway beauty trends, plus I hear they'll have refreshments, games, door prizes, an early bird ticket draw and even entertainment. I hope it's Justin Bieber. 

Since this is a Friday Find, here are a few of my favourite classic go-to products (expensive but so worth it - less is more) that I need to replenish, plus a few things I can't wait to try out:

Lancôme Définicils High Definition Mascara, $31

MAC Limited-Edition Baking Beauties Collection 



Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Intensive Moisturizing Hand Treatment, $25

butter London 3 Free Nail Lacquer in Primrose Hill Picnic, $17
