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!! 

Recollections 18-month Doodling Planner Review

Happy Wednesday loves!

I’ve been specifically searching for a weekly planner that I can use with great detail and of all places, I found it at Michaels!

The best friend and I were looking for somethings for her baby shower and we somehow got to the organization area. I love looking at journals and planners so when she noticed it and showed it to me, I was ecstatic! It was originally $12.99 but was on sale for 6.99! Not only that, but I also had a 20% off coupon.

I couldn’t say no to the price and I’m a big fan of adult coloring books, so when I saw it was a doodling planner, I just had to get it!

My only con would be you would have to write in the dates for the monthly planner

My favorite part is the weekly planner! I’ve been looking for this specific template everywhere! You can easily put all your appointments by the time.

 

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!!

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?

This is a very late post but hey its better late than never. About a month ago, I had gotten an email about trying the Julep Maven box and only pay 2.99 shipping. So I figured I would try it out to see what the hype was all about.

What I received:

*”Jet” from the It Girl collection- a creme dark black

*”Queen Anne” from the It Girl collection- a lilac confetti microglitter that does feel like there is a texture. Kind of like cat’s tongue or feels lighter than sandpaper.

*”Tatiana” from the collection Boho Glam- a golden burnt orange microglitter which is also a glitter.

* I also had gotten a gel eye glider in the shade Smoky Taupe Shimmer. I love this gel liner because it’s simple but yet makes a statement.

Deals and Freebies February 9-15, 2014

Hi Loves,

I hope everyone has a great Valentines/Single Awareness Day.

This past week was a crazy one that had so many sales going on at a lot of drugstores.

Walgreens:

Walgreens has a beauty sale going on from now until March 1, 2014 called the Winter Beauty Event where you once scan a coupon and every time you buy cosmetics, skin care, hair care, grooming, bath and body and oral care you get 50 points per $1 as long as you’re a Balance Reward member. Here’s a link to the coupon in case anyone wants to use it! http://www.walgreens.com/topic/promotion/winter-beauty-event-coupon.jsp

*I bought the Ban Total Refresh Cooling Body Clothes for $3.99 and got 250 points for buying it. That’s not including the Winter Beauty Event points. I ended up getting 400 points on that one.

*I bought Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer in 041 Dust of Bronze for $4.99. I used a coupon that was $1 off and got 150 Reward points. I believe they changed their design of the polishes.

walgreens buy-001Ulta:

What I love about Ulta is that you can use both coupons from Ulta as well as manufacture coupons. I had a $3.50 off a $10 purchase. So I bought a much needed blush brush from Real Techniques that was $8.99. I then got a Chocolate Mud mask for $1.99 and an Iced Gingerbread Shower Gel that was on clearance for only $0.99. In total I only paid $9.50 so it’s as if I only paid for the brush! Another great thing about using the Ulta coupons is that when you look at the receipt, they don’t take just $3 off one product but they take it from all the products you bought!

Rite Aid:

*There’s a sale for the any Venus razor would be $9 and you would get $2 back in Up+ Rewards. I had a coupon that was $4 off which can be found in last week’s P&G coupons insert from the Los Angeles Times. I also had $4 in Up+ Rewards earlier so in total I only paid $1.99 plus tax!

venus olay razor-001CVS:

A new toothpaste came out and it sounded like a good deal. Crest Be Adventurous Chocolate Mint toothpaste! It was on sale for $4.99 while there was a coupon in the P&G coupon insert last week that was $1 off which is not bad at all. I added that with a $3 ExtraCare Reward while getting back $3 again. So I only paid 1.99 plus tax. 😀

*The week before there was a sale on Maybelline: Spend $9 on any Maybelline purchase and get $3 back in ExtraCare Rewards. I got the Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Eggplant. I wanted a new color for my eyeliner so I figured why not!

Kmart:

Last but not least, I was browsing at Kmart in the cosmetics section where I noticed there was a few Revlon cosmetics that were up to 75% off. I was lucky to find this blush in the shade of Wine with Everything 060. I like this shade because it evens out any overdone blush. Original price was about $9 but I only paid $2.99!

Until next time loves!

 

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.

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!

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!

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!

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!
