#doyourmakeup: New favorite makeup beauty bargains
Posted Aug 28 2013 6:12am
Hola, my beauty-loving frugal ladies! As usual, I’ve been shopping the drugstores like it’s my job and I’ve found some really great products for cheapity cheap! There are some especially good sales this week so I wanted to share my deals with you so you can go out and get ‘em! Here’s a few things I got this week: I haven’t tried it all yet and I don’t love everything, so I am just going to be highlighting the products I have tried out & like.
Ok, the first thing you need to know is that Wet ‘n Wild products are 40% off at Rite Aid this week and if you buy $10 worth you get $3 +UP Rewards. The second thing you need to know is there are TWO $1 off printable Rite Aid coupons at Rite Aid’s video values site (you have to watch them by Saturday, and also Saturday is the last day of the sale.) and one $1 off a mascara at their eye extravaganza site. Soo, you can get my new favorite product, Wet ‘n Wild’s MegaGlo illuminating powder (pictured here in Pink Catwalk). I love, love, love, love, love it. It is nearly as good as my fave Mary Kay highlighting powder and it retails at $3.99. With 40% off and a $1 off coupon, I paid $1.39!!! Say what? I loved it so much I went back and bought another shade the next day. And because I bought $10 of Wet ‘n Wild total, I did get back that $3 +UP Reward. Woohoo! I’m dying to try that Wet ‘n Wild eyeshadow palette in Petal Pusher ($4.99, only $2.99 with 40% off and $1.99 with $1 off coupon!) but I haven’t tried it yet. Will report back! I love their other eye shadows that I’ve tried, though so go get some! Also! CoverGirl is BOGO 50% off at Rite Aid and you get back $2 +UP if you buy two items. There are still lots of coupons good for these items from the August P&G. Like, for instance the $3 off 2 eye products coupon. They have single eyeshadows for $3.39 so you could actually profit a penny or so if you bought two after coupons and +UP Rewards and used the coupon.
In this pic I am wearing the Wet ‘n Wild MegaGlo illuminating powder on my cheeks, the Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Smoky Eyes eyeshadow and Revlon Lash Potion mascara on my eyes.
Now, on to CVS. This week you can get Revlon products BOGO 50% off, and they are part of an ECB deal where if you buy $30 of product, you get $10 ECB. This deal included Huggies and I had coupons so I got me some diapers! Now when I went into CVS, the magic coupon machine printed me off a $4/$12 cosmetics purchase coupon, which works great with this deal! There are also $2 off Revlon foundation, powder, and BB Cream coupons on coupons.com. I bought the BB Cream (don’t love, too sheer for me, if you don’t need much coverage you might like it) and that made the Lash Potion mascara $3.49. AND I LOVE IT! The Revlon Lash Potion mascara not only comes in the prettiest packaging you ever did see, it works great! It made my lashes nice and long and it wasn’t too thick or clumpy, plus they still felt soft after it was applied. (I don’t like it when they feel like they’ve been coated in plaster.) If you aren’t into CVS-ing, this mascara is also on sale this week at Target for $4.99! It’s a great deal.
My next great CVS score was the Physicians’ Formula Shimmer Strips Smoky Eyes Eye Shadow palette. I LOVE it. I have loved this line ever since I tried it a few weeks ago, and the smoky eyes set is also great. This week if you buy and Physicians’ Formula at CVS, you get $6 extra care bucks. So I paid $11.95 for this and got back 6 ECB. A great deal for such an awesome product. (And of course, with all my extra care bucks and coupons I really paid $4-something for the Revlon, Huggies, Playtex, and Physicians’ Formula I bought. And got back like 19 ECB. WHAT UP!>!>!>?)
Anyhoo, those are some awesome beauty bargains this week! If you’re going to check out the Wet ‘n Wild deal, I also love their lip glosses, 99 cent Silk Finish lipsticks, and MegaLength mascara (also pictured above.)
