I mentioned last month that my black beautyblender Pro was on its last legs and I wanted to try a cheaper alternative. I’m late to the game but I finally got around to buying the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.
I recently discovered Soap & Glory’s Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in Plum Jam in my stash. It was discontinued awhile back which is sad because the formula’s fantastic. I already use, love and have raved many times about the Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in Nudist which is the perfect everyday MLBB (my lips but better) peachy nude. Think of Plum Jam as Nudist’s perfect everyday MLBB sheer red sister. Same great vanilla scent. Same dense, balmy texture. Same semi-opaque, shimmer-free, glossy shine that goes on really sheer but can be layered to produce a deeper, more noticeable red. I absolutely love it! I love it so much I ended up purging several more lipsticks from my already drastically reduced stash. Now that I have Plum Jam I don’t feel like I really need all those other lipsticks.
The Gloss Sticks have been discontinued but they still pop up in closeout shops and online stores every once in awhile. If you come across them, I would recommend scooping one or two up. They’re far and away my favorite jumbo lip pencils in terms of texture, scent, colors and finish. Why were they ever discontinued?!
Just wanted to share an amazing deal on DiGiorno pizza at CVS this week. I know a lot of you are coupon clippers and bargain shoppers so maybe you already know about this promotion but in case you don’t…this week at CVS DiGiorno 12 inch pizzas are on sale 2/$10. That alone isn’t really a great deal but there’s an additional promo on them. If you spend $30 on DiGiorno pizzas, you’ll receive $10 ExtraBucks back. In last week’s Red Plum coupon insert there was a Buy 2 Get 1 Free coupon for DiGiorno pizzas. If you’re able to get your hands on two of those coupons or if you were able to print out a similar B2G1Free offer from coupons.com and use any two of those in conjunction with ExtraBucks and CVS coupons, the savings are amazing. I was able to get six DiGiorno pizzas, which would have cost $30, for only $3 (or $0.50 per pizza!).
What I did was grab six DiGiorno pizzas at 2/$10 ($30 total). Then I used two B2G1Free coupons (which equates to $10 off), $10 Extrabucks, a $2 off anything CVS coupon that received via email (subscribe to the CVS mailing list for coupons!), and a $5 off $15 purchase coupon via the CVS app on my smartphone (there are several app-exclusive CVS coupons).
Over the holidays I made one small Sephora order for the Buxom Shimmer Shock Lipstick in Volatile. Although I really liked the lipstick’s creamy texture, it was a complete glitter bomb and the color was too brown for my liking. I returned Volatile but the experience wasn’t a total waste because I ended up really liking the free sample of IT Cosmetics’ Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination concealer that had been included in my order.
In my Target Cyber Monday blog post several weeks back, I mentioned that I was waiting on a pair of boots from Amazon but never followed up with you all.
I had ordered a pair of Sorel Out N About boots that I’d had on my wishlist for months but they were on backorder which accounted for the delay. The boots normally retail for $115 but during the week of Black Friday they had been marked down to $85 on Amazon. Then on top of that there had been a 20% off code which took an additional $17 off. It was an amazing deal.
The boots arrived eventually and it was love at first sight, so much so that I ended up buying a second pair in a different color shortly thereafter. I had a bunch of Amazon gift cards saved up that I used on the boots, so altogether I think I spent approximately $15 per pair. Score!
