I told myself that I was going to keep the CVS beauty clearance info contained to one post, but I have some additional info that I really wanted to share with you, so, well, I'm breaking my own rules!
First of all, I want to once again thank each and person who has left a comment on the official post. It's because of you that I am able to post such a comprehensive list, and you have no idea how grateful I am for you taking the time to leave such detailed and thoughtful info on that post. So thank you, thank you, thank you!
Second, I know I've mentioned this before, but my favorite eye makeup remover of all time is the CVS version of Neutrogena Oil Free Makeup Remover. I LOVE this stuff, and I usually buy the travel-size bottles for around $2.50 each (which last me a very long time). Well, thanks to my lovely reader flagrl561 for alerting us to the fact that the travel size version is on clearance right now for 75% off! Flagrl561 was able to score a bottle for just $0.24!!!! I've been to three different CVS locations in search of this deal, but at every one, the makeup remover is already SOLD OUT! Argh! If you spot this stuff and can get it for $0.24, consider yourself a very lucky gal!
Next, I want to share with you my haul (I swear this is the only haul I'm making during this sale--mark my words!):
Let's start with how I got that bottle of Rimmel polish for $0.12: as you all know, select shades are on clearance for around $1.12 right now. Well, at Rite Aid, there are lots of counter displays for Rimmel products right now, and they have $1 tear-pad coupons on the displays! I took a few (with the plan of waiting for a good sale in the future) and BOY did they come in handy! My CVS accepted my $1 off coupon, so HELLO, $0.12 nail polish!
I have a serious obsession with pale lavender nail polish, and I have been wanting Sally Hansen Lavender Cloud for the longest time. Since it's on clearance for $1.99, it was finally time to get it. I think it's THE palest lavender I own.
And finally, let's talk about these Revlon ColorStay Mineral Finishing Powders. When they first came out a while back, I remember everyone talking about how they're MAC MSF dupes. Well, I kind of kept that in the back of my mind but the $13.99 price tag always scared me away. Since these are (probably) being discontinued (all three shades are on clearance) I figured it was finally time to try one.
WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG TO TRY THIS PRODUCT??
I'm kicking myself for not getting one sooner. Ladies, I LOVE this stuff, and let me tell you why:
1) No fallout. It's so finely milled, it's a pure joy to apply.
2) No chunky sparkle! The shimmer in the shade "Brighten" is so fine that it literally just makes my skin glow.
3) Buildable shimmer. If you want a very subtle look, it's easily achievable. If you want a more intense glow, you can easily get it by building.
I wore this yesterday and Mr. G, who usually is the first person to say "Why does your face look so sparkly?" said to me, "Whoa. Your skin looks like it's glowing." I even asked him if he meant "sparkly" and he said NO, that it just looked glowy.
For an oily-skinned, MAC NC20 gal who lives in constant fear of a glowy/dewy look, this product is Holy Grail material. A finely-milled powder that TRULY gives me a glowy look, without looking oily? It's too good to be true! Oh, and the pink color of the powder doesn't really deposit color on my face--it's more a very subtle silver glow. I'm telling you, this is THE. PERFECT. HIGHLIGHTER. For me, at least. But hey, if you're not interested in getting one, that's cool because that just means there's more for me!
PS: I just updated the master list with new items and shades spotted by you, and also things I have personally spotted (spoiler: I spotted NYC Blushable Creme Sticks for 75% off at my CVS, as well as some Neutrogena and Garnier skincare items for 50% off. So definitely take a peek!)
If you have spotted additional products on clearance that are NOT on the master list, please leave your comments here. Thanks SO much!
