This is a tee tiny haul from CVS using my $3 off $10 Beauty purchase at CVS… Make sure you scan your card this week to save! It’s only this week.
What sucks is that there aren’t any many sales at CVS on cosmetics, like BOGOs and such. However, Sally Henson products are BOGO 50% off, you can get $5 ExtraBucks when you spend $15 on Maybelline and $4 ExtraBucks if you buy select Revlon products.
I went for the Revlon deal to try out the new Custom Eyes Mascara (Blackest Black/ Waterproof) and one of the new L’Oreal Infallible La Rouge Lipsticks in Blazing Sangria.
Also, if you are in the CVS Beauty Club (if not, it’s totally free and you get more ExtraBucks) you can scan your card to see if you’ve reached your $5 ExtraBucks reward for spending $50… and you know I did. After the CVS clearance I’ve racked up some serious points.
The tally? $9.99 for the lipstick + $7.99 for the mascara – $3 coupon = $15! Then I got my $4 ExtraBucks for the Revlon, so it’s like I paid $11 for both… at least that’s what they like for you to think LOL! For me it’s $4 off my next haul! Woot!
I haven’t tried the mascara but the wand snaps to 2 positions giving you either voluminous or defined lashes.
As for the lipstick, I wore it — of course — for the rest of the day and it is a long wear formula, meant to last 10 hours. It does last long and the color is a less dramatic red that I think can transcend seasons through out the year.
It’s not too bright, or too bold but has lots of pigmentation. It has a bit of an orange undertone, hence the name Blazing Sangria. One of my favorite drinks!
