drugstore living: huge CVS sale.
It's been quite a long time since my last beauty post, but I'm excited to jump back into doing these!
When I walked into CVS today, I was on a hunt for some Airborne, but naturally, I walked out with makeup instead. The reason? Well, the appearance of a whole bunch of little green stickers that say 75% off on them. Yes, you heard that right... seventy-five whopping percent off! Now, as you can see from the photo below, I only picked up two things, because, well, it's Christmas time, which means a time for buying for others instead of myself. But let me tell you: I could have walked away with an entire haul. There were some Physician's Formula things that caught my eye, as well as some different shades of nail polish from various brands. It took some restraint on my end, that's for sure.
I've been wanting this bronzer for a really long time, due to a recommendation from Emily Eddington. When I saw that it was part of this sale, I jumped on it, & I'm so glad that I did, because there was only one of them left. The bronzer is made up of four matte shades that you can use separately or swirled together. They look like they would also work really well as eyeshadow colors. I quickly swatched the colors swirled together - as soon as I got in the car - but I can't wait to take this product on its true maiden voyage tomorrow.
I'm a big fan of the kissable balm stains & love the two colors I currently own - Honey & Smitten. The shade Darling was the only one in the display with the 75% off sticker, which leads me to believe that this color will soon be discontinued. It's a blue-toned, Barbie-ish pink, & I'm still deciding exactly how I feel about it. I put it on in the car, & I was a bit shocked at its brightness. The jury's still out on this one, folks, but the formula is good & trusty as ever.
Ok, so let's talk numbers. The bronzer was regularly priced at $13.29, & the balm stain was regularly $9.49. My total came to $6.09, which, as you can see, is less than half the price of the original bronzer, as well as less than the original price of the balm stain.
That, my friends, is a sale that shouldn't be passed up. Let me know if you pick anything up, & be on the lookout for more beauty posts coming your way soon.
*It's worth noting that I couldn't find the bronzer or balm stain on CVS's website. This could mean that CVS will no longer be carrying this product, or that Revlon is discontinuing the product. As it stands, I don't know which it is.
