Adventures In Beauty - Raid On Walgreens

Alrighty. Here are my spoils from the Walgreens BOGO 50%

Revlon, Neutrogena and Rimmel had BOGO 50% off , and I also had some coupons for almost everything I purchased, provided by my mother. With all that, my total savings came to $30.40. But I'm not tellin' what my total total came to. *sheepish grin*

Deoderants, foundation, powder, bronzer, eye shadows, lip treatments, primer, lip colors, lip gloss, eye liner

Revlon Colorburst in Fire (my daughters pick)
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Sugar Plum
BOGO 50% and $1 off coupon for each item

Neutrogena Blends Translucent Oil-Control Powder in Clean
Natural Radience Bronzer in Sunkissed
BOGO 50%

Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm in Sunny Berry (for my daughters chapped lips)
Neutrogena Skin Clearing Oil-Free Makeup Microclear Blemish Treatment w. Salisylic Acid in Warm Beige
BOGO 50% and coupons for $1 off each

Rimmel eye liner in Pure White ; Fix & Perfect Pro Primer
(apparently you put this on your face before your makeup)
BOGO 50% and coupons for $1 off each

Wet N' Wild eye shadow pack - Petal Pusher
No coupon or deal for this brand. This pack was $4.99

Wet N' Wild eye shadow pack - Blue Had Me At Hello
No coupon or deal for this brand. This pack was $4.99

Wet N' Wild eye shadow pack - Spoiled Brat
No coupon or deal for this brand. This was $2.99
I used this on my eyes tonight to go to a wedding.

Wet N' Wild Lipsticks in Bare It All and Just Peachy ; Lip Gloss in Crystal Clear.
No coupon or deal for these, but Wet N' Wild is always pretty inexpensive. These were all $1.99 each.

They only had one in the larger size (that was sold for the same price), but I was happy that the other one came with coupons inside.
BOGO 50% and a $2 off coupon for one. 

My daughter saw me taking pictures of all the makeup and decided she would pull out some of her lip glosses and take pictures of them with the iPad. She then instructed me to "Put it on Facebook". I've created a monster.

Want a funny visual? I'm sitting here blogging with my arms tightly to my sides as I hold tea soaked washcloths under my armpits ala PITicure style.

Well, that's all folks. My Walgreens raid behind me, I now plan to try different ways to put this gunk on my face and bring you the before and afters. I will tell you now, I have NEVER been a genius at makeup. Eyes especially screw me up. So, keep in mind that I am trying alot of new products and techniques for the first time and it's going to look amateurish. BUT, to those of you out there like me, you can take comfort in the fact that you don't have to be a MAC counter specialist to apply makeup well. It's gonna look bad at first, but we'll practice together and get better with time. Until then, take care of yourselves. This is the only body you get. The only skin you get and the only life you get. Make it matter. Make it count.


  1. I hit up the wet n wild kiosk today at CVS...the few lip colors they had left I bought! Yay for $7 on make up!
