CVS Revlon Nail Polish Deal 4/16/2017-4/22/2017

Happy Wednesday loves! 

I don’t always post about nail polishes twice a week, but I couldn’t pass this opportunity!

CVS has a deal: $4.99 Revlon Nail Polishes and get $3 back in ExtraCare Reward bucks. 

To my surprise even the set was $4.99 which comes with a ColorStay Polish with a Top Cost. This usually costs about $12. 

I suggest running over to CVS and score this deal!!

Revlon Parfumerie Nail Polish Haul

Happy Wednesday loves!

“There’s a difference between beauty and charm. A beautiful woman is one I notice. A charming woman is one who notices me.” -John Erskine

A few weeks ago, I was just browsing the beauty aisles at my local Rite Aid and found these gems on clearance!! All of the Revlon Parfumerie Nail Polishes were on clearance. Original price is about 5.99 and these were 75% off so they were $1.49. There was no way  I was going to pass these up! I’ve been wanting to purchase these for a long time but kept waiting till they had a good sale. The best thing about these polishes is that they are scented!!

revlon parfumerie

I got the:

*African Tea Rose: a pretty pink that smells like roses! This is the one I’ve wanted to buy since forever.

* Moonlight Woods: a metallic purple with a hint of blue. It smells like the Bath and Body Works Twilight Woods. (Go figure! :P)

*Wintermint: a sheer light green with a blue green glitter specks. Just like the shade says, it smells like Winterfresh gum! I’m pretty much a sucker for anything that smells minty so this is perfect.

*Surf Spray: a cool blue with blue shimmer. The scent reminds me of Irish Spring for some reason. It’s a fresh scent.

Swatches are coming soon! If only there was a way you all can smell the scents! lol 😛

Have you guys tried any of the Revlon Parfumerie? What do you think?

Love with Food June 2014 Review

Hi Loves!

I hope you all are having a great week. 🙂 Welcome to summer! lol

I was on Facebook recently and found a promotion for the Love with Food subscription box. I’m usually hesitant about paying full price for a box I don’t know what to expect, so when I saw this promotion I had to try it! I paid $2 for shipping for my first box and my, I was not disappointed at all! What also is nice about this box, is that for every box they sell, the company sends a meal to a child. Their motto is “One Box. One Meal.” There’s a range of sweet to savory flavors and I definitely love that!

Cheddar Baked Fries by Snikiddy 

baked fries

*50% less fat than regular chips                                                             *vegetarian

*non-GMO potatoes and corn                                                                 *no MSG, no trans fat and no nuts

*certified gluten-free

*cholesterol free

I definitely enjoyed this snack although it does have that weird slight aftertaste.

 

Good for You Granola, Almond Butter & Jelly Sandwhich by Jolly Oak

granola

*Non-GMO superfood granola                                                       *all natural

*zero artificial anything

I’m not much of a granola person, but wow! that may change (at least with this brand and flavor). It wasn’t too sweet and I did enjoy the dried fruits in it like raisins, dried strawberries and dried cranberries. It can easily be put on yogurt or even cereal. Or if you’re in a hurry, you could also eat it as is.

Pineapple, Raspberry and Mango Fruit Snacks by YumEarth Organics

fruit snacks

*Made with real fruit juice                                                             *No artificial colors or flavors

*Gluten-free                                                                                         *100% daily Vitamin C

*Fat-free                                                                                                *Nut-free

*Non-GMO                                                                                            *100% Vegan

I love the raspberry and the pineapple flavors. Not so much on the mango flavor though. Definitely something I would like.

Chocolate Cookies by Dulcetto

chocolate cookies

*100 calories                                                                                      *100% Natural

*0 trans fat                                                                                          *No artificial flavors or coloring

This is probably my favorite thing in this box! It’s a chocolate cream filled cookie. It reminds me of those wafer cookie sticks my parents used to buy us as kids. You could eat this with tea, hot cocoa, and coffee. Even try them frozen for a summer treat.

Montmorency Cherries by Stoneridge Orchards

cherries

* Gluten free                                                                                        *No artificial colors, flavors or preservatives

*All Natural                                                                                         *100 Calories

I honestly can’t say my opinion because I’m not a dried cherry person, so I gave it away to my sister. From what I hear, she loves it.

Snap Back Cookie by The Cookie Department

A Ginger Detox Cookie

*All Natural                                                                                        *No trans-fat

*contains: ginger, cayenne, & blackstrap molasses

I haven’t tried this yet but I will when I have an early shift at work! Definitively I’m very interested about this cookie.

Chicago Mix by G. H. Cretors

popcorn

*All Natural                                                                                       *No gluten ingredients

I really did like this product. It’s popcorn that’s either buttery caramel or rich cheddar cheese flavor. What I did enjoy about this is that every time you take a bite you don’t know if it’s going to be sweet or salty.

Gum Balls by Tree Hugger Gum

bubble gum

*Vegan                                                                                                  *Non-GMO

*No corn syrup                                                                                 *Nut free

*Dairy Free                                                                                         *Kosher Parve

This bubble gum reminded me of Juicy Fruit and it was very chewy.

What I love about subscription boxes is that not only do you get products, they also send you coupons.

I would rate this sub box a 4 out of 5! I will definitely try the next box out. If you’d like to sign up and get your first box free, use my link! 🙂

ISSE 2014 Haul

Hey Lovies!

I hope everyone is doing great. Sorry for being so MiA, with so many things going on recently I’ve been swamped. From getting sick, family dilemmas to starting work!

So this past weekend January 25-27, the ISSE (International Salon and Spa Expo) 2014 came upon us in the Long Beach Convention Center, CA.    I went on Saturday and felt so overwhelmed (having this be my first time to any such expo) haha. I did some shopping but didn’t break the bank! haha What I love about these expos is that there’s so many discounts and so much to see. Here’s a sneak peak to what I splurged on. 🙂

J.Cat Cosmetics: I never had heard of this company before but when I saw the prices, I was shocked! Some of the products were 3 for $6 or 3 for $9 on other selected products. I got the 3 for $6. http://jcatbeauty.com/

*Roll It Up Auto Lip Liner in “Puce” ( I actually bought it thinking it was a nude eyeliner) But I contacted them and they said it’s perfectly safe to use as an eyeliner. Score!

*Roll It Up Auto Eye Liner in “Bulk Black” Water Resistant

*Flying Solo Eye Shadow in “138 Down Low”

I then got some freebies just buy walking around and random people passing samples out. That’s another great thing about these types of expos. 😀 I got a Poppin Hair Clip, a nail filer on one side and the other side is a mirror and a few hair samples from Amika: Oil Treatment and a Nourishing Mask.

I hope you all liked this haul and I’m looking forward to trying out these products and reviewing them!

Until next time! 🙂

 

 

 

 

Weekend Splurges

Merry Christmas Eve loves!

I hope everyone has a great Christmas Eve and enjoy it to the fullest!

I know I’m glad I finished finals and did great in my classes so this weekend I splurged a bit more on my makeup junkie-ness more than I planned. This whole month has a been a bit too much on the makeup purchases but who could resist right?!

PicMonkey Collage weekend haul-001

This weekend, I made a stop at Ulta, and CVS. I feel like I go to CVS every few days to see if more clearance products come out. To my surprise, the beauty clearance sale also covers hair care!

I got the Salon Grafix Healthy Hair Nutrition Conditioning Cleanser in Citrus Creme. This was originally $8 but I got it for $2.50! I really advise you guys to look around the beauty, hair care, and bath and body area of the store. You have no idea how many goodies you can find.

conditioning cleanser-001

I saw this new Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Palette and took forever to chose what shade I wanted! So many possibilities! I opted to get the shade “Floral Values 393A”. It’s very feminine and soft. It comes with a base color, the browbone, the definer, the eyelid and the crease. I have a feeling that they might start discontinuing the original trio eyeshadow palettes but I could be wrong. I only paid $3.99 for these suckers!

wetnwild palette-001

The last thing I got from CVS this week (and hopefully the last!) is the Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Bronzer in Medium Skin. This is my first time actually buying a bronzer so I’m excited on trying this out! It’s original price was 14.99 but it was on 75% so I only paid about $3.15!

physician formula bronzer-001

I later went to Ulta and I had one of those coupons that were Buy more than $10 and get $5 off, so I went off to the hunt! :p I got one of the most talked about product on the web which was the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in “Milk”. I use this mostly when I want my shadows to pop.

nyx milk-001

This winter has been pretty harsh here in California and I don’t think people notice how bad the cold weather effects their skin! Especially their lips! I heard that the Sally Hansen Peptide Lip Smoother was on clearance but alas, I could not find it. Although I did find it at Ulta! I’m excited to try this especially at night when it’s the coldest.

lip smoother-001

As I was already paying at the cashier’s, I still did’t have enough to get the discount so I grabbed the closest and cheapest thing. haha I did get the Ulta Anti-Bacterial Hand Gel Sanitizer in “Holiday Cheer”.

So at the end, I only paid $6.59 which is not bad at all!!

Have you guys found any new products that you tried and loved? Let me know! 🙂

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVE!! and Happy Birthday to My Baby Sis!

Massive CVS Beauty Haul

Hey Loves,

I hope everyone is doing great in this winter-ish weather. Brr it’s been freezing lately!

I went to CVS Pharmacy a few days back and I think I may have done quite some damage. haha :p

They have this end of the year sale on clearance, ranging from 25%, 50% or 75% off some beauty products. Every store varies, so I would check out a few of them.

They also had a sale where if you buy $20 worth of makeup from ANY Rimmel,  Maybelline,Physicians Formula and  CoverGirl Face, Eyes or Outlast Nail.

When you buy $10 or more on Revlon, you get $4 back in ExtraCare bucks.

Let’s just say I took advantage of everything that I liked!

cvs haul

The Essence of Beauty cleansing sponges were 75% off while the original price was $4.79 and I only paid $1.19 so I bought 2.

Some of the Covergirl Outlast Nail glosses were 50% which isn’t a bad deal. I got “Out of the Blue 295” and “Always Autumn 260”. Both are pretty colors and they last long! They were originally $5.99 and I only paid $2.99.

I then got the CoverGirl Flamed Out Shadow Pencil in “Lime Green Flame 315” and the CoverGirl Flamed Out Shadow Pot in “Lime Light 310”. I had a coupon that was $4.50 off 2 CoverGirl Eyes. You could find the same coupon in a few magazines. The total of those together with the coupon was $7.98. Not bad at all!

Then there was the Maybelline Limited Edition Shimmer Blush in ” 110 Plum Shimmer. I paid $8.99 for this one. It’s price was pretty steep but then again I do enjoy these limited edition products.

So because I had bought over $20 worth of Maybelline and CoverGirl, I got to choose a free tote bag. It was either between a black tote with big white polka dots or a black tote with leopard print. When I first saw this in the ad, I thought it was a cheap small tote, but when I saw it in person I knew I’d love it. This is what I picked.

Lastly I had to get a new foundation since the one I had didn’t do its job, so I got the Revlon ColorStay Foundation for Normal/Dry Skin in the shade “320 True Beige”. I paid $12.99 for it but I did get $4 dollars back so yaay!

I’d say this is was an eventful week for CVS and their deals! 🙂 I honestly can’t wait till I look at the other CVS stores and see their variety!

Back-to-School Sales

Hey loves,

I wanted to do a little something different since school is approaching fairly quickly whether it being elementary, junior high, high school or even college and we all know how stressful it can be to go back to school shopping. I think we can all relate, 20 years ago, back to school shopping was pretty easy in a way. We didn’t have to worry about what brand of backpacks and notebooks we had.  We didn’t have to worry about all the different kind of electronics like cell phones, laptops and calculators! Although at the same time we didn’t have too many places to shop for school supplies, we didn’t know where the great deals and we didn’t have as many coupons available I believe. As a kid, my parents would take my sister and I to Target, Kmart, Walgreens, Walmart and the Dollar stores.

Some tips you can use while going through this crazy shopping season:

  • You can use coupons from Target along with a Cartwheel deal.
  • You could also use a Target coupon with a manufacturer coupon.
  • Try using coupons as much as possible especially at drug stores.
  • Try as much as you can to start shopping from August, not last minute.

CVS had a sale earlier advertising if you bought $20 worth participating brands, you could get a $5 Classroom Gift card.

According to the Find&Save Back-to-School Shopping Experience survey:

83% of children shop and choose their back-to-school supplies with their parents.

53% use a cell phone while shopping to find good deals/sales.

80% will spend under $400 on back to school shopping.

and

50% report that the parents start back-to-school shopping in August.

With Find&Save, Wanderful Media is helping retailers by engaging shoppers around local sales and products, with the intent of driving shoppers across the threshold of retail stores. Find&Save is available to shoppers wherever they are, via tablet, mobile or web.
