Hey gals, I'm pretty happy right now. I've been reading so much on The Recessionista's blog; Nouveau Cheap. (sorry, I can't get the link up, but just google Nouveau Cheap and you'll find it!) Anyways she is always talking about the awsome deals she finds, but here in Canada, I can't find stores that put things on sale!! So I was super exited when a Revlon Warehouse sale rented a building for a month to get rid of extra stock! There was stuff 50-75% off in there! But, Avon is releasing some awesome spring products so, I restrained myself to 3 lip glosses, 1 cream blush and 1 eyeliner. So, there was this huge bin with gloss-nailpolish duos in it -2 for $1!! I got the last pinky gloss, all the rest were an nude-gold, but I got one of those so to get the 2 for $1 deal. The third gloss (squeeze-tube) I got was in the "bargain bin" a small cardboard box filled with items that lost their price tags, or were the last of that color in stock. I managed to get it for $1 also.
The blush was the most exspensive thing I bought- at $6 a for a pan. But this blush is the dream blush for vampire white gals like me. It gives a just flushed look to the face. I find that I'm so pale that many blushes make me look like a clown, which is not what I'm going for! And I bought a white kohl liner (marked $3) for my waterline. *tip of the day: if you stayed up too late last night, or find your eyes need a pick-me-up, take a white eyeliner and line your waterline. This works miracles! For darker skinned gals, just try to find a liner a few shades lighter than whatever color you waterline is. But more wonders awaited me at the cash register. Everything was BOGO 50% off! So I ran to find something else. (at that piont I only had 5 items) I ended up with a super-soaker (there wasn't just makeup in the warehouse) for my 10 year old sister. My total?
Eyeliner: $1.50 (this was the 50% item)
squeeze tube gloss: $0.50 (50% off!)
Gloss-Nail polish set #1: $0.50
Gloss-Nail polish set #2: $0.25 (50% off!)
Total: $11.75 before tax. Not too bad if I do say so myself!
