Some Interesting New Drugstore Items for 2016

Standard
New for 2016

New for 2016

It’s a new year, and that means that there are a ton of new products out for our enjoyment.  There are so many new collections out right now that it is tough to keep track of all of them.  I decided that it might be fun to show you some of the new items from the drugstore that caught my interest.  This is by no means an exhaustive list of what is new in the drugstore, but rather the items that look interesting to me.  A couple of the items have been out for a few weeks now, but most of them are just now hitting the shelves.  I am going to try to include pricing, but please remember that prices vary by location.

Maybelline Color Tattoo Concentrated Crayon

Maybelline Color Tattoo Concentrated Crayon

I am probably the most excited to try the new Maybelline Color Tattoo Concentrated Crayons.  What?  Yes, the super popular Maybelline Color Tattoos are now available in crayon form instead of the pots.  I don’t know how the formula has changed to accommodate the new style of Color Tattoos, but I really hope that they are as good as the pots were.  I also hope that they expand the shade range soon because these shades are great for fitting basic needs but not terribly unique.  These retail at Ulta for $6.99.

Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation

Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation

Another Maybelline item that caught my eye is the new Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation.  Hydrating and matte don’t usually go together, so right away I am intrigued.  Maybelline claims that it is a refreshing gel-whipped foundation that leaves complexion perfected and smooth with a velvety, soft-matte finish while skin stays hydrated for 12 hours.  I have tried whipped mousse foundation, but no gel-based foundations, so I am sold.  I have to know what this formula is like.  The Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation retails for $10.99 at Ulta.

 Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Makeup Remover & Cleanser


Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Makeup Remover & Cleanser

You can’t watch Youtube these days without Micellar water making an appearance in some way, and I am interested in the Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Makeup Remover & Cleanser.  This has been out in some areas for a little bit and has gotten some great reviews.  Here is the blurb: “This All-in-1 cleanser is surprisingly powerful yet gentle to skin. It effectively removes makeup, cleanses skin and refreshes. A multi-purpose cleanser that contains Micellar technology. Like a magnet, micelles capture and lift away dirt, oil and makeup without harsh rubbing, leaving skin perfectly clean, hydrated and refreshed without over-drying. Dermatologist tested for safety. Ophthalmologist tested. Non-comedogenic–won’t clog pores.”  Micellar water is intriguing to me, and I want to know more.  The Garnier version retails for $8.99 at Ulta.

Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free All-in-1 ABC Cushion Foundation SPF 50

Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free All-in-1 ABC Cushion Foundation SPF 50

Cushion foundations are hitting the market hard right now, and I am most interested in the Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free All-in-1 ABC Cushion Foundation SPF 50.  Physicians Formula claims that it is a creamy mineral fluid foundation that promises to correct visible imperfections, blur lines, and leave skin with an airbrushed finish as well as protect it with an SPF 50 Broad Spectrum Sunscreen.  I have never used a cushion foundation, and although I know that Korean brands have been producing them for years, they are relatively new to the US.  L’Oreal has also released a new cushion foundation, but this Physicians Formula is more appealing to me.  The one major drawback for me, though, is the price tag.  Both the Physicians Formula and the L’Oreal cushion foundations are between $16 and $18, depending on where you get them.  That is pretty steep for the drugstore.  Still, the product is intriguing.

Nyx Cosmetics Whipped Lip and Cheek Soufflé

Nyx Cosmetics Whipped Lip and Cheek Soufflé

Next I have a slew of lip products to show you, the first of which is the NYX Cosmetics Whipped Lip and Cheek Soufflé.  This is a 2-in-1 whipped mousse for you cheeks and lips that leaves a matte finish.  It has a doe-foot applicator with a pointed tip for precise lip application.  You can also dab a little of the mousse on your finger to apply a wash of color to your cheek.  I like 2-in-1 products, and I am interested to see what NYX has come up with.  If there is a brand that I trust with stellar cheek and lip products, it is NYX.  The Whipped Lip and Cheek Soufflés retail for $5.99 at Ulta.

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color

I am also interested in the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colors.  These are a lightweight gel matte formula, which is different.  The Ultra HD Matte Lip Colors have been out for about a month now, and the reviews have been mixed.  The main complaint that I have seen is that they don’t actually dry down to a fully matte finish.  I can see why that is a big problem for a product with the word “matte” in the name, but it’s not an issue for me.  I have not jumped on the matte lip cream bandwagon because my lips are too dry to follow that particular trend.  I think that they are lovely, but they just make my lips looks pickled.  So a demi-matte, comfortable formula like this is way more my speed that a true matte.  These are $8.99 at Ulta.

L'Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss

L’Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss

Along the same lines is the new L’Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss.  Like the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colors this is a demi-matte lip product that keeps a certain level of hydration to keep lips from drying out.  I am not sure which lip product I am more interested in between the Revlon and the L’Oreal.  They seem pretty similar by the description.  If any of you have tried either of these two products, I’d love to hear your thoughts.  The L’Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss retails at Ulta for $9.99.

CoverGirl Colorlicious Oh Sugar! Lip Balm

CoverGirl Colorlicious Oh Sugar! Lip Balm

The final item that I have to talk about to today is the CoverGirl Colorlicious Oh Sugar! Lip Balm.  Here is the blurb: “CoverGirl’s Colorlicious Oh Sugar! Lip Balm is a vitamin infused, moisturizing lip treatment that nourishes, protects and smooths lips. Grapeseed oil, avocado butter and vitamins C and E lock in moisture, keeping lips soft and smooth.”  I believe that these tinted balms are being set up as possible dupes for the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments.  I find that extremely hard to believe  because I love the Fresh Sugar Lippies and I have never had much luck with CoverGirl lip products.  But, I am all about tinted lip balms, so I certainly want to try them.  🙂  The CoverGirl Colorlicious Oh Sugar! Lip Balms retail for $8.99 at Ulta, which is a little steep for tinted lip balm from the drugstore.  Hopefully the formula makes up for the price tag.

Those are all the new products from the drugstore that have caught my eye recently.  More products are spilling in for 2016, so I am sure there are plenty of new arrivals that I may have missed.  Have you tried any of the new products that I listed here?  I’d love to get your thoughts.  Are there any products that I didn’t mention that you think I need to check out?  Let me know in the comments below.  What products are you most interested in trying for 2016?

October 2015 Monthly Favorites

Standard
October Favorites

October Favorites

I am finally back from my vacation and somewhat settled in.  I came down with a pretty bad head cold the last day of my trip that has moved into my chest, so I took a couple extra days to rest up.  I’m feeling better now, though, so it is time to get back to blogging.  Today I have my Monthly Favorites post for October.  For anyone new to the blog, Monthly Favorites are those products that particularly stood out to me, and ones that I reached for over and over throughout the month.  This is the second month in a row that didn’t have any fails (go me), so I am going to get right into my favorites because there are a lot of them.

Revlon Nearly Naked Powder & Cover Girl Outlast Stay Fabulous Foundation

Revlon Nearly Naked Powder & Cover Girl Outlast Stay Fabulous Foundation

It’s been a year, but I am bringing back my favorite foundation/powder combo, the Revlon Nearly Naked Powder & Cover Girl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation.  I was obsessed with both of these products toward the end of 2013 and all through 2014.  I used both products up completely (two of the foundation, actually) and decided to move on to other things over the last year.  With my Walt Disney World trip, however, I wanted to go back to this combo.  The Cover Girl Outlast Stay Fabulous is really great and unique because it works equally well for those with oily or dry skin.  Very few products truly are for all skin types, but this foundation really is.  The foundation is mattifying, without drying out your skin or making it look dull or mask-like.  It has solid medium coverage, but is still lightweight and not cakey.  The best part is that it lasts all day long, even in the worst heat and humidity (hello Florida).  I definitely think that it is one of the best drugstore options for foundation and I really needed it during my Disney trip.  Revlon Nearly Naked is such a good pressed powder.  I love how lightweight it is, and the soft focus effect it gives to my skin is lovely.  It blurs the imperfections and makes me look younger.  Revlon Nearly Naked is (for me) the absolute best powder in the drugstore and I am so happy to have it again.  Florida was hot and sticky, and I felt like I was melting every single time I stepped out the door.  I got rained on and completely soaked on Splash Mountain, I was super sweaty the entire time, and I needed my makeup to survive extremely long days.  This combo lasted an impressively long time in a variety of challenging circumstances.  I have experimented with a lot of foundations and powders, and though I have liked some of them quite a bit, this combo is still what works best for me.

Ben Nye Luxury Powder in Banana

Ben Nye Luxury Powder in Banana

I’ve been meaning to mention this next product for a while because I have been using it off and on for the last several months. But October is when I really dug into my Ben Nye Banana Powder.  This is a cult favorite in the beauty community, and many of you have probably heard of it, if you don’t already own it yourself.  I really like the yellow tones in this powder to help combat my redness.  My skin tone is mostly neutral with some warm yellow undertones, so the banana powder works very well for me.  It is very finely milled and the powder gives me a smooth and brightened look that I enjoy.  Loose powder is not my favorite thing because it is such a mess, so this will never be my go-to setting powder, but I have been enjoying it.

Makeup Revolution Ultra Professional Blush Palette

Makeup Revolution Ultra Professional Blush Palette

My go-to blush product all month has been the Makeup Revolution Ultra Professional Blush Palette in Sugar and Spice.  There will be a full review for this product coming, so don’t worry.  In the meantime, I did swatch some of my favorite shades from the palette.  This was wonderful in Florida because I needed to be economical with my packing.  The palette is compact, but gave me the variety I wanted.  The blushes are pigmented, smooth, and last well on my skin.  For $10, you get six blush shades in varying finishes and two shimmer shades.  There is a similar palette in Hot Spice available, and I have enjoyed this one so much that I may have to pick up the other one too.  Seriously, get to Ulta and check this out.  I’ll try to get the review up soon.

Tarte Light Of The Party Collector’s Makeup Case

Tarte Light Of The Party Collector’s Makeup Case

For eyes I have been loving my new Tarte Light Of The Party Collector’s Makeup Case.  I did a full swatch fest, so click over to this post to see everything included in the case and swatches of all the products.  I don’t know what it is about this palette, but I am so inspired by these shadows.  I have been especially loving the navy blue and chrome shadows in that last column for a look that I don’t normally go for.  The shadows are great, and I definitely recommend the case, especially if you are Sephora VIB or VIB Rouge and can take advantage of the sale going on now.

Physicians Forumula Sexy Boost Cat Eyes Mascara

Physicians Formula Sexy Boost Cat Eyes Mascara

I will admit that I bought the Physicians Formula Sexy Boost Cat Eyes Mascara during Ulta’s 40% off sale because of the packaging.  Could this get any freaking cuter?  The red “lace” flocking and that shoe charm!  I mean, come on.  As it turns out, I really like the mascara.  I took a risk because I have not loved Physicians Formula mascaras in the past, but the Sexy Boost Cat Eyes Mascara gives me long flirty lashes.  It’s not the most volumizing, but it does give my wimpy lashes a nice boost and I am happy with it.

Makeup Forever Smoky Extravagant Mascara

Makeup Forever Smoky Extravagant Mascara

Speaking of mascara, I have been enjoying the Makeup Forever Smoky Extravagant Mascara.  I got this sample from Sephora at some point and finally pulled it out.  This was great in Florida.  It is really long-wearing and didn’t smudge on me, despite what I put it through.  Perhaps a little too long-wearing because it was a pain to remove at the end of the day, which is the only negative thing I have to say about it.  It gave me a ton of volume and I really like the formula.  I usually buy my mascaras at the drugstore, but if you go more on the higher end side for your lashes, the Makeup Forever Smoky Extravagant Mascara is a good choice.

Coastal Scents 4 Piece Interchangeable Palette

Coastal Scents 4 Piece Interchangeable Palette

The final Favorite product that I have to mention is, in some ways, something that I use everyday.  This is a Coastal Scents 4 Piece Interchangeable Palette that I created a while ago when I needed a new brow shadow.  I like the Coastal Scents Hot Pot in Timeless Taupe for my brow shade.  You can plug any of their Hot Pots into this magnetic palette, so I chose two brow shades (because I wasn’t sure which one I needed) and two pretty shades.  It’s these two bottom shades that I really want to talk about.  I used the heck out of them while I was at Disney World.  They were so handy for a pretty, but also very easy eye look.  The shades are: Gypsy Green– An opaque wash of verdant beauty with a slight satiny finish and Cherry Moss A reddish-brown hue with green iridescent shimmer.  They were perfect when I got lazy with my makeup, and I wore both shades so many times in October that I can’t even count them.  Coastal Scents Hot Pots are really inexpensive, but I think the formula is great.  They are a good size too.  Coastal Scents is an old favorite of mine.  If you haven’t tried them, you definitely should.

That’s it for my October Favorites.  I hope that you saw something that you liked.  What were some of your favorite items for October?  Let me know in the comments below.  My vacation was wonderful.  I had a blast, and I am so glad that we got the chance to go.  That being said, I am happy to be home.  The Holiday Season has hit early this year, and I am all for it.  I love the Holidays, so I am so excited.  There are so many great collections out for the Holidays.  I am going to have to really work on practicing restraint because at this point I want All-The-Things.  What Holiday products are you planning to pick up?  Are you hitting up the Sephora VIB sale?  Let me know what is on your wish list in the comments.

Big Sales at Ulta

Ulta

Ulta

Ulta is going all full court press with the sales this week on drugstore items.  Free shipping, 40% off, and Buy 1 Get 1 sales are all happening through Saturday October 3rd.  (Omg, is it really October this week?  Where did September go?)  These sales are available in store and online.  If you plan it well, you can rack up some substantial savings.  And don’t forget that you can still use the $3.50 off of $10 coupons that Ulta always has as well as any manufacturers coupons that you may find.  So let’s take a look.

NYX Buy 2 Get 1

NYX Buy 2 Get 1

NYX is currently Buy 2 Get 1 Free.  Now would be a great time to try out the new Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks or the new Slide-On Lip Pencils.  If you really want to expand your eyeshadow collection, the new(ish) Avant Pop and Go-To Palettes are included in the sale.  I really like NYX, and I think that they especially excel at lip and cheek products.  If you haven’t tried NYX blushes or lippies, then you need to give them a shot.  Also in NYX news (taking a time-out from Ulta for a minute) the first ever NYX store is opening up this weekend.  If you happen to live in Southern California, the grand opening starts 10/2 at the Santa Anita Mall.  More store openings to follow soon in Rancho Cucamonga, Torrence, Santa Clara, and Walnut Creek. Now, back to Ulta.

40% off

40% off

Right now Revlon, Physicians Formula, and Almay cosmetics are 40% off.  I am definitely going to have to pick up another Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder.  I ran out a while back and really miss it.  If you are a fan of Physicians Formula you will certainly want to take advantage of this sale.  Physicians Formula is rather pricey for drugstore, and 40% off is a great deal.  Remember Ulta accepts Manufacturer’s coupons and you can use them in conjunction with the Ulta coupon.

China Glaze

China Glaze

China Glaze polishes are Buy 1 Get 1 Free.  China Glaze polishes are $7.50 each, so that’s quite a savings.  I really like the China Glaze formula and recommend hopping on this deal.

It’s a good week to be an Ulta shopper.  Be sure to sign up for the Ulta rewards program if you haven’t already.  It is free to do so, and you earn points for any purchases made at Ulta that can be exchanged for cash toward an Ulta purchase.  I like to hoard my points and spend them on my birthday and during the Holidays.  It is a good way to bring the price down on those Holiday gifts and palettes that I always want.  There are also special coupons throughout the year for rewards members, and I think signing up for the program is absolutely worth it.  Do you plan on taking advantage of any of these sales this week?  Let me know in the comments below.

Physician Formula Argan Wear Blush in Natural

Standard
Physician Formula Argan Wear Blush

Physicians Formula Argan Wear Blush

Today I’d like to show you the Physicians Formula Argan Wear Blush in Natural.  We have discussed Physicians Formula Argan Wear Collection before, mainly about how beautiful the products are.  I will 100% admit that I got this blush solely on how gorgeous it looked in the package.  I do not have many Physicians Formula products because, in general, I find the brand to be overpriced and over-hyped.  However, while I am not a huge fan of the brand, Physicians Formula does put out some really good products and I wanted to give the Argan Wear Blush a try.

Physician Formula Argan Wear Blush

Physicians Formula Argan Wear Blush

Physicians Formula Argan Wear Blush comes in standard PF packaging.  The compact flips up to reveal a compartment holding a brush and it has a full mirror.  I don’t usually use these brushes.  Do any of you?  They are handy in a pinch while you are out and about, I guess, but I have never had any need for them.  I’m curious if they actually get used.  At any rate, you get the brush and the mirror is of good quality.  This type of packaging can be bulky but I appreciate having the mirror when I am on the go.

Physician Formula Argan Wear Blush in Natural

Physicians Formula Argan Wear Blush in Natural

Physicians Formula’s Argan Wear Blush is an ultra-luxe formula, which features luminous, light-reflecting pigments that deliver a skin perfecting effect for a youthful and glowing radiance. Infused with 100% Pure Argan Oil.”  The first thing that we need to talk about is Physicians Formula’s insistence in putting glitter overspray on all of their cheek products.  Why?  What is this nonsense?  Seriously Physicians Formula, you need to stop and I mean right now.  As you can see in the photo above where some of the glitter is rubbed away, this is just a surface design.  It looks lovely, yes, but when you try to actually use the blush it just complicated things.  It is chunky glitter that looks cheap and gets everywhere.  I took a tissue and wiped off the whole mess, but that just wastes product and I was still left with stray glitter particles when I applied the blush to my cheek.  It is not a problem that is unique to the Argan Wear Blush, but for a lot of Physicians Formula products.

Once you get past the overspray, the Physicians Formula Argan Wear Blush in Natural is a decent blush.  It gives you a subtle wash of color for a very natural look.  There is a lovely little block of bright coral in the center of the blush for more color if you want it.  The blush ends up being pretty versatile because of it.  The color can vary quite a bit based on where in the product you put your brush.  The formula is not powdery and the blush has a stain finish that looks very nice on the skin.  It has decent staying power.  I do wish that it was a little more pigmented but it is, after all, the shade Natural.  There is definitely a distinct Argan Oil scent which may put many of you off, but I don’t think the scent lingers on the skin.  Here is a swatch.

Physician Formula Argan Wear Blush in Natural

Physician Formula Argan Wear Blush in Natural

On the left I swatched just the light colors, no coral at all.  The middle of the swatch has all three colors mixed together.  The right side is just the center coral shade.  Now for some final thoughts.  Physicians Formula Argan Wear Blush in Natural is a perfectly fine blush, but for some reason I just don’t like it.  I don’t know if it is just too pink for me or what.  Except for the horrible glitter overspray that we have already discussed, I don’t have anything that I can complain about and say “this is the issue” with this blush.  I can’t think of any glaring problems that make me dislike it.  But there is something that just doesn’t work for me.  I can’t really say that it is a dud, but I can’t really recommend it either.  I realize how unhelpful it is to say that I don’t like it for reasons that I can’t explain.  It is why it has taken me so long to get this review up, even though I’ve had the blush for months.  I would say that if you are a Physician Formula fan already and like Physician Formula blushes, then you will probably also like the Argan Wear Blush in Natural.  If you have fair or light skin and enjoy light to medium pink blushes, this may be a great option.  Otherwise skip it.  There are so many other options and at a better price.  (The Physician Formula Argan Wear Blush is $12-$13.)  There is nothing about this blush that really stands out and grabs my attention and frankly, I’m bored.  :/

New Spring 2015 from Rimmel and Physicians Formula

Standard
Spring 2015

Spring 2015

Continuing from Monday’s post, here are some more brand new products for Spring 2015 that are now available in the drugstore.  This time, I want to focus on Rimmel and Physicians Formula.  Be sure to check out my first post focusing on Maybelline and CoverGirl, and stay tuned for one more post with even more new products from Revlon, Almay, Wet n Wild, and more.  I will start with Rimmel.

Rimmel Wonderlash Mascara with Argan Oil

Rimmel Wonderlash Mascara with Argan Oil

Argan oil is all the rage in the drugstore this Spring, as you will see again later in this post.  The first item that I have to show you is the new Rimmel Wonderlash Mascara with Argan Oil.  Obviously Rimmel isn’t the first brand to feature Argan oil in its mascara formula (hello, Josie Maran), but it is a unique option for the drugstore.  Rimmel Wonderlash Mascara with Argan Oil that smoothes and defines lashes with zero clump volume while leaving lashes feeling conditioned. Easy smooth application brush captures and coats separating lashes from root to tip. Reveal all lashses, even the ones you did not notice.  The mascara comes in both waterproof and non-waterproof versions.

Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hr Foundation

Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hr Foundation

Rimmel has revamped their Lasting Finish formula, and has introduced the new Lasting Finish 25 Hr Foundation.  Instant perfect coverage that feels extra comfortable and lasts all day.  Blends flawlessly, seamlessly, instantly and easily into the skin.  Sweat, heat, humidity and transfer proof for up to 25 hours.  I am very interested in this formula.  I love that there are some solid yellow tones in the lineup, and the price point is great.  I’d love to know if any of you have tried this foundation yet and what your thoughts are on it.

Physicians Formula Extreme Shimmer Collection

Physicians Formula Extreme Shimmer Custom Eye Enhancing Makeup

Moving on to Physicians Formula, I spotted this display with the Extreme Shimmer Custom Eye Enhancing Makeup Collection.  The collection includes smoky cool tones and warmer nudes.  This display as been pretty picked over, but here is what should be in the collection:

  • Physicians Formula Extreme Shimmer Shadow Nude Palette
  • Physicians Formula Extreme Shimmer Shadow Smoky Palette
  • Physicians Formula Extreme Shimmer Gel Cream Eyeshadow Nude Set
  • Physicians Formula Extreme Shimmer Gel Cream Eyeshadow Smoky Set
  • Physicians Formula Extreme Shimmer Nude Eyeliner Set
  • Physicians Formula Extreme Shimmer Smoky Eyeliner Set

With a name like “Extreme Shimmer” you can bet that this collection is full of sparkle and shine.  If you are a matte lover, just keep on walking.  However, if you love the glitter, this may be right up your alley.

Physicians Formula Argan Oil and Argon BB Cream

Physicians Formula Argan Wear Oil and BB Cream

As I mentioned before, Argan oil is all over the drugstore right now, and Physicians Formula is largely responsible for that.  Here is what is pictured above:

  • Physicians Formula Argan Wear Glow OilPhysicians Formula’s Argan Wear Glow Oil is 100% Pure Argan Oil.  This magical ingredient from Morocco transforms skin, smoothing the appearance of fine lines, brightening dull skin and renewing suppleness, helping to enhance skin’s youthful looking glow without ever leaving a greasy feel or finish.

 Physicians Formula Argan Wear Blush and Bronzer

Physicians Formula Argan Wear Blush and Bronzer

The final products that I have to show you today are the Physicians Formula Argan Wear Bronzers and Blushes.  There are two shades of each, and they are unbelievably beautiful.  I don’t know how they perform, but they may be worth purchasing just to add such gorgeous product to your collection.  Physicians Formula’s Argan Wear Bronzer treats skin with ultra nourishing ingredients and delivers a sunlit glow as if you’ve escaped to Morocco. Mirror & Brush included. Infused with 100% Pure Argan Oil, smoothing the appearance of fine lines, brightening dull skin and renewing suppleness, helping to enhance skin’s youthful glow.  The Bronzers come in the shades Light and Bronze.  Physician Formula’s Argan Wear Blush is an ultra-luxe formula, which features luminous, light-reflecting pigments that deliver a skin perfecting effect for a youthful and glowing radiance.

Ulta 40% off

Ulta is at it again with its 40% off sale this week.  Three or four times a year, Ulta offers 40% off on several drugstore brands.  This time around, the sale is good for all NYX, Revlon, Physicians Formula and Almay products.  The only exclusions I am aware of are NYX value sets over $14.99.  Otherwise, it is all good.  You have until Saturday, 10/4 to take advantage of the 40% off, both in-store and online (no code required).  What’s even better, is that you can still use Ulta’s regular $3.50 off of $10.00 coupon on your 40% of items, which is a substantial savings. I am trying really hard not to break my no-buy (so far so good), but it is getting harder and harder with all of the good deals that keep popping up.  (Especially with some of the new NYX products!!!)  So I will have to live vicariously through you.  Let me know in the comments below what you are planning to pick up during Ulta’s 40% off sale.

So, off to Ulta with you, and happy shopping!  🙂

Big Drugstore Sales this Week 7/27-8/02

Standard
Sale Alert

Sale Alert

I am just stopping in to let you know of some pretty good drugstore sales going on this week.  I don’t usually post about weekly drugstore sales because they are often Buy One Get One 50% off sales, and that’s not really that great of a deal.  But I always pay attention to Buy One Get One Free or 40% off sales, and that’s what I have to tell you about today.

First off, Rite Aid is offering a 40% off sale on Wet n Wild cosmetics and Fergie nail polish.  Rite Aid is also offering Physicians Formula as Buy One Get One Free.  This is a great deal because Physicians Formula can be really expensive for the drugstore.

If you don’t have a Rite Aid near you, there is a deal on Physicians Formula at CVS where you get $8 in extra bucks when you purchase two PF products.  Extra Bucks can be used like cash on anything in the store, not necessarily just beauty products.

Then at Walgreens, they are offering 40% off on Wet n Wild nail polish and 40% off on Maybelline cosmetics.  This is a great time to pick up the new Maybelline Nudes Expert Wear Palette.

No post tomorrow because it’s my birthday and I will be spending it with my sweetie.  Don’t forget to enter my current giveaway to win a free Derma MD Eliminate Eye Cream.  I hope that you are having a good one.  🙂
