I am SO excited to share this weeks haul with you guys! I know last week, I mentioned that there were some good deals to be had this week at CVS. However, upon closer look, and the release of next weeks ad, I decided to wait until next week to haul some of the items I've been wanting, so I'll get a better deal on them then. I did end up getting 1 thing at CVS, though and I'll share that with you. So, on to the haul. I got 5 items this week, 4 from Rite Aid, then one at CVS when I went in for something else entirely (dang those beauty deals :).
1. I got 2 NYC liquid lipshine's in "Fashion Ave Fuchsia" & "Prospect Pink". These were from Rite Aid and they were on sale buy one get one free. They retailed at $1.99 each, so I paid $1.99 for both of them making them about $1 each.
2. Almay Shadow Softies in "Creme Brulee". This also came from Rite Aid this week where all Almay cosmetics were 40% off. This had a retail of $4.99, and I printed a coupon for $2 off from here. So, with combining the sale and the coupon savings, I ended up paying about $1 for this eye shadow.
3. The last item I got from Rite Aid this week is a Revlon blush in "Haute Pink". This was also 40% off this week. Retail for this beauty is $9.99 and, I used a manufacturer coupon from here for $2 off and a Rite Aid coupon from here for $3 off, making this $10 blush only about $1 after sale and coupons. That's a 90% savings!! Not to mention, it's a perfect bright blush for spring.
4. Last but not least, I got another Almay Shadow Softies in "Hot Fudge". This one was from CVS, and was not on sale at all. But I went into CVS to get some chocolate for an afternoon fix, and I scanned my extra-care card at the wonderful magical coupon machine inside most all CVS stores, and it printed a lovely coupon for me to use that was for $4 off any Almay color cosmetic item. So, of course I marched myself over to the Almay display and found that their Shadow Softies were only $4.99 (you can see the price in the background of the above picture). So, I scored this Almay Shadow Softies for only about $1. BUT WAIT!!! I'm a member of the CVS beauty club, which gives me $5 extra-bucks for every $50 I spend in the beauty department. That $50 is BEFORE coupons. So, even though I only paid $1, the full price of $4.99 will go towards the beauty club balance. So, if you take the $5 for every $50, and think of that as 10% off of your beauty purchase, 10% off of $4.99 is about 50 cents. So, my grand total after all is said and done, was about 50 cents for this Almay Shadow Softies.
There you have it! I got $24 worth of makeup this week for only $4.50!!! That's a huge savings. Make sure you visit next weeks Friday haul where I show you how you can make money on your beauty purchases from the drug store.
