<strong>Hello lovely Luuuxers! </strong>
Yesterday I was so excited to go to my local CVS because I had tons of coupons and a few ECBs, so I could save a lot of money! I didn`t have many things that I needed, but I decided to pick up some things I had been wanting for awhile because, why not? :) Sorry some of the packaging is broken in the pictures! I got too eager to try the concealer and mascara before I could take pictures of them!!
First off, my birthday was last Friday! <strong>YAY!</strong> CVS emailed me a coupon for $3 off any purchase as a "birthday gift". I also had $5 in ECB, as well as a 30% off coupon and a 20% off coupon. I was surprised that they let me use both of the percentages off in the same transaction! On top of this, I returned a concealer that I wasn`t too crazy about (review will be coming soon...), so I got $8 back. Altogether, this haul would have been <strong>$40</strong> but I ended up only paying <strong>$21</strong>, which after I take into account the $8 I got back, was only <strong>$13</strong> out of pocket! WOOHOO! I love saving money, it`s so much fun!
First, I picked up a few things I had been needing for awhile. The package of <strong>cotton balls</strong> is not very interesting, I just use them for removing nail polish! I also got a bottle of <strong>VO5 Clarifying Shampoo</strong> because I had never tried a clarifying shampoo before and my hair has been rather dull lately. Besides, it was only .79, discounted from its original price, .99! Can`t beat that deal. I also picked up a new lip balm, <strong>Blistex Medicated Lip Balm</strong>. My lips are SO dry, even in the summer, and I also didn`t have any lip balms with SPF in them, so I decided to give this one a whirl.
Now, on to the other things that I just bought for fun! First, I bought the <strong>Maybelline Falsies mascara in Blackest Black</strong>. I had been hearing people rave about this mascara FOREVER, and I have a few friends who swear by it, so it was about time I finally tried it too! I used it once yesterday and I think I need to get used to the applicator, but I do really like it.
I also picked up the <strong>Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Under-eye Brightener</strong> to replace the concealer I returned. I used it yesterday and I love it so far! It is so creamy and made my eyes look so awake and bright. I will review this once I`ve used it for a long enough time!
I was browsing the aisles looking for a bright purple eyeshadow. I have been so big on neutrals lately and have been eager to get something bright, yet flattering and wearable. I love purple eyeshadows so I wanted to get something really vibrant. I decided on the <strong>Wet n Wild Single Eyeshadow in Glamrock. </strong> This is such a beautiful, bright blue-purple shadow! I can`t wait to use it. Sadly, it shattered a bit on the trip home. Luckily most of it is still intact so I can definitely still use it!
Finally, I picked up a nail polish that I had been wanting for SO long... <strong>Orly nail polish in Rage</strong>!!! I am obsessed with anything chrome and anything rose-gold, and this is the most beautiful combination of both! One of my favorite Youtube girls, Alli (MakeupByAlli), wears this on her nails all the time and I`ve fallen in love. It is usually $8 at the drugstore, which is pretty expensive for my standards, so I`ve held out on getting it until now. Out of the entire haul, I think I`m the most excited for this nail polish! Weeee I`m such a nail polish nerd.
Alright, that`s it for my haul! <strong>Let me know what you think of it, if you`ve tried any of these products, or if you`d like to see me review any of them!! :) </strong>
