Its been so long since I went to the drugstore and checked out the cosmetic and beauty section. If I remember right the last time I went to Walgreens and Rite-Aid was in November or so. Hubby is plain scared to take me there because I end up buying lot of stuffs even though I don’t need them 😀 . So today we had to go to Walgreens to take some passport pictures so I decided to check out what they have in their store.
The first thing which caught my eye was the Suave body lotion which had 2 new scents and I picked the lavender vanilla as I love the smell of lavender. And then while I as walking, my eye caught the $ 1 bin which has some of the hair accessories. So I got the band and the hair clips 😀 . Moving on, I walked across the end of the store where usually they keep the clearance bin. I did see some products which has orange clearance stickers in the display but everything was gone 😦 . So I moved to check the clearance bin and usually they don’t have good stuffs in there but I just wanted to check it out.
To my surprise, I did find good bargains in the clearance bin :D, LA splash liquid eyeliner in purple, Loreal Hip pencil liner in Dark Angel and Sally hansen nail polish in Golden flash :D. I also saw some Loreal hip eye shadows and lip glosses but I wasn’t interested in them or the color didn’t grab me 🙂 . While I was walking toward the skin care section, they had this new Wet n Wild products on display which surprisingly mostly gone but I did notice the last Gray’s Anatomy nail color and I grabbed it 😀 . It is a popular color and is supposed to be a dupe of a Chanel nail polish.
I also wanted to check out the Jordana brand cosmetics as the beauty bloggers has been raving about it. So I got the retractable lip liner in silver liac and the fabuliner in black which is a felt tip liquid liner pen. I also purchased some Johnson’s body lotion and head to toe wash for the baby as they had BOGO 1/2 off. Hubby picked up his own lotion as well as they were just 99 cent 🙂 . Finally I had to get out of the shop before I start buying more 😀 .
Next stop was to the Rite-Aid because I wanted to take advantage of their offer of the Loreal Excellence creme hair color 😀 . They have 2/$17.99 plus a $ 4 off coupon and during check out you get $ 5 up reward which you can use it on your next purchase. So basically you get 2/$8.99 🙂 . So I decided to get them and few other stuffs as well 🙄 . At first I was looking for a sharpener for my lip pencils as I have only one and I use them for my eyeliner pencils. So I got the NYC sharpener which was 99 cent 🙂 . Then went to the clearance section and found Loreal nail polish in Dusk which was 50% off.
I also wanted to check out the Physician’s Formula brand which has BOGO 1/2 off on their products and when I reached that section, I realised that they have it only on some products because I wanted the trio eyeliner and unfortunately they weren’t on sale 😦 . But I did find some products which were 75% off 😀 . So I got my hand on the Healthy wear powder foundation in creamy beige for $ 3.45 🙂 . And I went to the skin care section just to check out and my eye caught the Aquaphor advanced therapy for lips. They are supposed to be good for the cracked and peeling lips, so I got them for emergencies and surprisingly they are expensive like $ 6.49 but still it has 2 tubes in it.
My final purchase was the Wet n Wild new trio eye shadow palette in I’m getting sunburned which has a lovely gold, deep brown and pink shades. This was the only thing which appealed to me and I know that at least I will use them. So went to the counter and got a Trident sugar-free gum in apple & pineapple which is so good. I am hoping chewing sugar-free gum will get rid of the sugar craving I am getting these days 🙂 .
So I paid them 2 transactions. First was the hair color and I got my $ 5 up reward and used that money for paying the rest 🙂 . But still ended up paying more from my hand but then I did get some good bargains. The beauty bloggers were talking about the CVS clearance sale which we don’t have them in this state 😦 . I am just so jealous of those who got good bargains in CVS. But at least I got some good deals as well 🙂 .
Hopefully this will satisfy my shopping itch for the next 3 weeks 😀 .
