Yummy411: CVS Deals 4/13-4/19, Reviews and FOTD

Beauty Deals @ CVS 4/13-4/19
-BOGO L'Oreal HiP
(Yippee! I felt this one coming on! LOL! You'd think I'd have everything I needed from this line by now... I have to repurchase my Teal potted gel liner, get the black liner that's supposed to be better than MAC's Blacktrack f/l, and give the purple eggplant a second chance)
-CoverGirl Buy One, Get One Half Off (Face or all eye, lip or nail); Clean or TruBlend products BOGO

-Buy One, Get One Half Off all Almay cosmetics or skincare

-L'Oreal Voluminous Naturale, Telescopic mascaras or Star Secrets Shadow Quad, $6.99
(Has anyone tried the Voluminous Naturale?)

-Buy One, Get One Half Off Neutrogena Cosmetics

-L'Oreal Infallible Lip Gloss, Bare Naturale Eye Shadow, $7.99 + get $2 extra bucks!

Which brings me to my L'Oreal Infallible Never Fail Lip Gloss review. I bought this the last time it was BOGO at Rite Aid. 'The more affordable version' of Lancome's Color Fever Lipgloss, I was actually underwhelmed by both. I picked up two colors in the same bronzey/sand colors. The gloss didn't look as nice on my lips as I had swatched on my hand and the thin-ness of it didn't suit me. I like vibrant and pigmented gloss. Eck, I didn't feel it was even worth the $10 it cost me. However, I read this review. Apparently, I didn't give it enough time. I love the tube though, cute and classy. Give it another shot?

What did impress me on a drugstore visit was.......????
Black Radiance's Radiant Lipgloss at a whopping $2.99! Love it! The consistancy, the feel, the pigmentation of the color and most importantly that price! A+++ (as my Biology teacher used to say.) They definitely need more colors though!

And to throw in an FOTD, just because I liked my makeup today....
:All MAC unless stated:
FACE: MSF Natural Pressed in medium plus, Sincere blush on cheeks
EYES: concealer and Cork e/s in brows, Ulta's Yogurt e/s on lid, Soft Brown e/s in crease and the dark gray in outer v (from Fafi Eyes 1), HiP Exciting pigment as brow highlight and tear duct highlight, Mystery Kohl Power e/l, Maybelline XXL Curl Power Mascara (primer only), L'Oreal Voluminous mascara (top and bottom lids), Fascinating eye kohl on water line, Studio Select Coverup in NW30
Added: Cheeks- Shy Beauty Beauty Powder Blush; Lips- Bonus Beat lipgloss with Maybelline's Taupe Twinkle l/s on top!

Shy Beauty snuck up on me. I couldn't see it as well when I was applying, but it shows up well in pics!

Plan on picking up anything from the drugstore? Anything else I should look out for?

I am so out of it, I thought the sale was last week and went in CVS spending a bunch of money I didnt need to spend on the Essence of Beauty brushes and HOPED to get some Milani shadows but for some strange reason they had every other Milani product but that...go figure. In any event I will have to scrounge up some pennies to get that HIP gel liner that everyone keeps comparing to fluidline. Im skeptical cause I LOVE my fluidline but I will give it a try. Thanks for the info!

I wish CVS would offer some sort of deal on that new Sally Hansen Naturals line (the one with Carmindy)! I really want the primer and foundation, but they're freakin' pricey for drugstore cosmetics. I know they're still cheaper than prestige cosmetics, but it's the principle of the matter.

yummy411 said...

@ lurve: thanks! what colors do you have?

LOOLOLL!!! you are so silly!

@ product junkie diva: seems like infallible is the stuff, so i better try it again too! esp now that it's on sale.

@ divineblackness: oh i didn't haul, but i will soon ;) yes that voluminous naturale is in the yellow tube. it can't be better than original voluminous. maybe it's less chunky?

@ shana: awww... well get the HiP gel liners this week! I have a few fluidliners, but these are great and sparkly heheh =)

@ mandypandy: i hear ya. i forgot all about Carmindy being a part of that SH line! now you have me interested. i'll keep my eyes peeled. Sales on SH sounds more like a Rite Aid deal. You keep your eyes peeled too!

Amina said...

You gave me great ideas :) beautiful picture...i am tight on the budget since i went crazy lately with hair products but i'll definitely look into the products you mentioned :)

yummy411 said...

@ nywele: let us know what u tried and what you liked!

@ (g): woo hoo! you finally made it to my blog!

thank you! i'm not into black radiance's total line, but that lipgloss is cool. yes, i love iman foundations and powders, etc!

SuzieC said...

I love the FOTD!

I'm still trying to figure out what to get from the CVS BOGO sale. Ulta had a HIP BOGO not to long ago and I got a lot of stuff then. I need to set a budget before I go in there. lol

@(g)ezebel Iman's makeup is great it leaves you with a flawless face.

Well, I picked up the primer and foundation last night and reviewed the primer, but have yet to review the foundation(I'll need a week with that one). I'll probably check out Ulta as they have the new line listed at BOGO 1/2 Off. Plus, I gots me a 20% coupon for Ulta. Sally Hansen, here I come!

yummy411 said...

@ suzie c: thank you! maybe you got everything you need from ulta... no need to spend more just because it's a sale.. hahaha at least that's what i try to tell myself! i agree on the iman info... i used it on a "bride" and she looked great! if i can find a picture, i'll post it =)

@ mandypandy: lucky you! either way, i'll def read your reviews first!

LOVE the matching phone to your outfit girl!

And I know I say this all the time but I always love you lip colors!

yummy411 said...

nills, LOL i guess i like green! i have to stop multitasking when getting pics for the blog. the decent ones happen to be me with the phone =p

really?! i don't think i've heard that from you, but thank you! i'm glad. i feel i can be boring with my lip colors choosing different colors and brands, only to blend them down to the same color!
