First Murale Haul :)

I made a huge purchase at Murale this week! This was my first time buying anything from and I was very happy with how quickly the order was shipped and delivered to my door. I placed my order on Monday evening and received my order on Wednesday of the same week! I like that this is basically a higher end store owned by Shoppers Drug Mart so you can earn Optimum Points on your purchase. All the prices are the same as SDM and I wanted to take advantage of the Fab and Free promotion so I figured this was a good time to pick up a few new products.

Here is everything I purchased... you can barely see any of the products in this photo so I will provide more details below! :)

I'll start off with the Fab and Free samples. The largest item included was a faux leather pink tote bag. It is actually a very decent build quality so I was pleasantly surprised. It came folded up in the box so there is a visible seam in the middle and my bag has a little white mark on the other side (like the dye missed that spot or something). It is a good size for the beach or for school and I like that it has a fully zippered top. It's a lovely raspberry colour as well but I don't see myself getting a lot of wear out of this so I will probably be giving it away.

Here are the anti-aging and lifting samples that were included in the bonus:

Kibio Fit By Nature Lifting Cream Gel // 30 mL
Clinique Repairwear Uplifting Firming Cream // 7 mL
Clarins Extra-Firming Day Cream // 15 mL
StiVectin TL 360 Tightening Eye Serum // 7 mL
Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum // 5 mL
Darphin Age-Defying Dermabrasion // 2 mL

Next up are the other creams and moisturizers:

Skin Authority VitaD Fortified Topical Elixir // 2 mL
Nuxe Nuxellence Jeunesse Youth and Radiance Revitalizing Fluid // 15 mL
Erno Laszlo Luminous Intensive Cream // 2 mL
Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet // 10 mL
B. Kamins Nutrient Replacement Cream // 15 mL

The cleansers! I was so excited about the Bioderma sample as I've heard such good things about this product.

Rodial Glamtox Cleansing Balm // 30 mL
Shiseido The Skincare Extra Gentle Cleansing Foam // 30 mL
Eve Lom Cleanser and Cloth // 5 mL
Bioderma Sensibio H2O // 20 mL

A few miscellaneous samples:

Not surprisingly, here are my favourite samples in the set!

Soap & Glory Super-Colour Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Plumping Gloss in Candy Gloss // 3 mL
Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara // 2 g
Benefit The POREfessional // 7.5 mL
Estee Lauder Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator // 7 mL
Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer // 5 mL

Here are the additional samples I received. I was allowed to choose 5 and I also received the extra Benefit sample because I ordered a Benefit product that was at least $30.

Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream // 8.9 g
Estee Lauder Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator // 7 mL
Clarins After Sun Moisturizer Ultra-Hydrating // 8 mL
Oscar Blandi Pronto Wet Instant Volumizing Shampoo & Condiitoner // 12 mL each
Deborah Lippmann The Stripper To Go // 1 mitt
Cake Milk Made Smoothing Hand & Cuticle Buffer // 12 g

Finally, we've come to the products that were purchased by me... including shipping ($8.50 to Toronto) and taxes, my order came to just under $160.

Shiseido Facial Cotton // 165 sheets // $9
Anna Sui Lip Rouge G in #304 // 3.4 g // $25
Benefit Brows a Go Go // $48
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Carina // 3 mL // $29
Shiseido Eyelash Curler // $20

Oh, and Lulu loved the tote bag. She totally went to town on the zipper pull! Fortunately, she doesn't have strong jaws so she didn't do much damage at all. :)

This promotion is in effect until Sunday, April 21, 2013 and I thought it was a great bonus if you happen to have a few things you want to pick up anyway. The Fab and Free samples also came with a little booklet describing all 24 products. Overall, I was really satisfied with my shopping experience at :) Have you ever shopped at Murale? Did you take advantage of this promotion?

I am behind with my unboxing videos so I will post the video below when it is ready! :)

Note: I paid for this order with my own money. Any links included above are not referral links.
