FYI, makeup is not the only thing that qualifies toward Beauty Club purchases. Hair care and skin care do, too, but I’m not totally clear on everything – I need to study up.
Anyhooz, here is what I purchased with those fab coupons:
CVS Cotton balls $2.99 (I use these to remove my mascara every darn day)
Cover Girl eyeshadow $3.99
CVS Sunscreen $7.99
Cover Girl mascara $9.99
Revlon Colorstay lipstick $10.49
Coke 2-liter 99 cents
$1 donation to the ALS foundation
total = $37.44 (!!!)
Coupons I used:
-$1 Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick printable coupon (coupons.com)
-$2 CoverGirl LashBlast mascara (most recent P&G insert)
-25 cents Coke 2-liter from Magic Coupon Machine
-$5/$25 CVS Beauty Club purchase email coupon
-$4/$12 cosmetics purchase from the Magic Coupon Machine
-$4/$10 CVS Brand skin/sun care purchase from Magic Coupon Machine
-$10 Extra Care Bucks from my Huggies the day before
-$6.68 25% off coupon I had emailed to me and loaded onto my Extra Care Card
*here is where I am a little confused* I had a “load to card” coupon for 25% off. In the past, these have not worked on “sale” items which included items eligible for Extra Care Bucks. But this time, it did take $6.68 off ! I was pleased! I’ll take it!
Total = $4.51, it was $6 even with tax!!! And I got back 3 ECB for buying $10 of CoverGirl, 4 ECB for buying $10 or Revlon, and 3 ECB for buying $10 of CVS Brand Skin/Sun care.
And I earned more $$$ toward my $50 in beauty purchases. (The amount doesn’t update on your receipt until your next purchase, I don’t think.) It’s a fantastic deal and I was thrilled!! Once again I had 10 ECB to go and spend this week!
Earning my CVS Beauty Club ECBs, getting there quickly!
Here’s a look I created for #doyourmakeup using all the new products I bought at CVS Beauty Club over the last couple of days. You can click here to go to my Instagram stream to get the breakdown of how I used them:
Ok, THEN, I decided I needed some neutral eye shadow and drugstore eyeliner and blush so I went back to CVS AGAIN. Those Extra Care Bucks were burning a hole in my pocket, what can I say? And when I got there, the magic coupon machine presented me with:
TA-DA! My $5 in Extra Care Bucks! Apparently that previous shopping trip put me over $50! See how you can spend very little using coupons and Extra Bucks and still get your reward for spending $50? WOOT! I also got a coupon for $2 off a Maybelline item. I had one of those from my last visit as well, so I decided my new items would be Maybelline!
I chose these little beauties (see what I did there?)
All these items were on clearance.
CoverGirl Exact Eyelights in Majestic Hazels $4.89
Maybelline Fit Me! Blush in Rose Blush, $2.99
Maybelline Line Stylist eyeliner in Onyx $4.25
Maybelline Line Stylist eyeliner in Espresso $4.25
coupons: -$4 two $2 off Maybelline coupons from the magic coupon machine.
-$10 Extra Care Bucks from previous purchase
=$3.53 including tax! And I still have y $5 ECBs from the Beauty Club, plus I just earned more towards my next reward. And, I used those products in addition to some of the others I got on my earlier trips to create this look:
I must say I ADORE the CoverGirl eyeshadow quad. I just used the champagne & the browns. They look great, blend wonderfully, and stayed on all day. Same must be said for the Maybelline eye liner in espresso (haven’t tried the other one yet.) It stayed on SO WELL! Impressed! The CoverGirl LashBlast 24 hr mascara was also a huge win. Love it, and it STAYED ON! I think drugstore makeup has really improved in the last five years! The Maybelline blush was just ok. A little matte for my taste. I guess I like my blush with sparkle.
Allright, I know this was the longest post ever. Thanks for sticking with me! I am really enjoying the drugstore makeup hunt and I love being able to save so much $$ on it!
What are your favorite drugstore beauty products? Where do you shop for them?
