The Rimmel Sexy Curves mascaras were both marked down 75% to $2.19. The Sexy Curves waterproof mascara actually didn’t have a clearance sticker on it but when I scanned it at the red scanner box it came up with the reduced price.
I saw a Rimmel counter display nearby with $2 off coupons for Moisture Renew Lipsticks/Sexy Curves Mascaras so I used two coupons on the two mascaras, bringing the total down to $0.19 per mascara. I also grabbed an extra coupon for a future purchase.
Now the third item I purchased wasn’t part of the clearance sale but I got it anyway. It’s the Color Concept 50 eyeshadow palette. Don’t mock these cheap palettes. Some (not all) of them are surprisingly good. I’m quite pleased with the Profusion 120 e/s palette I got during the Walgreens Black Friday sale and still use it all the time.
I remember hearing You Tubers and bloggers raving about the Color Concept palette way back in November and during the January clearance sale but I never saw it at my CVS, so imagine my surprise when I finally spotted the palette today. I think my CVS is just really slow about putting out counter displays.
This little gem of a palette has been compared to the Coastal Scents 120 palette, and the Color Concept palette is supposedly a lot more pigmented. I’m excited to test it out.
I’m going to go back to CVS tomorrow to grab a Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro nail polish in Blue Marine. It was marked down to a little bit over a dollar and I seriously considered grabbing it right then and there but the coupon clipper in me said, “No!” I have a $1 off any Rimmel product coupon but I forgot to put it in my purse today. I’ll bring it with me tomorrow and get that nail polish for a few pennies.
Have you purchased anything from the CVS clearance sale?
ETA: Oops, totally forget to mention that I also got a Revlon ColorStay Mineral Finishing Powder in Brighten. I can’t remember the exact price but I know it was $3 and change.
I’ve known about these powders for years but never considered getting one because they look really similar to the Prestige baked powders that I already own. Even the packaging looks similar. But NouveauCheap raved about the powder and since it’s so cheap I had to buy it.
The Prestige Powders (top row from left to right) are: Pure Shimmer, Glam Tan, and Rich Bronze.
