CVS haul

You knew it was going to happen! With CVS running a straight 50% off sale on Physicians Formula foundation, powder, blush, bronzers and concealers this week (through 2/16), and the $7.50 in Quarterly Extra Bucks I had burning a hole in my pocket, I just had to pick up some goodies.

Also, this week CVS is printing out a coupon at the red scanner box for $4 off any $12 beauty purchase (score!) and many of the new 2013 Physicians Formula products have $3 off peelie coupons on the boxes. So I saved big time!
 
 Physicians Formula
Super BB All-in1 Beauty Balm Powder in Light/Medium
Happy Booster Illuminating Bronzing Veil
Happy Booster Baked Bronzer 
Sexy Booster Sexy Glow Blush in Natural 

Keep reading to see the rest of my haul, and how much I ended up paying for it...

From NYC, I picked up two items from their newest lines:

NYC Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm in Applelicious Pink
NYC Sparkle Eye Dust in Golden Champagne

NYC is BOGO1/2OFF this week so I was able to shave a bit off the retail price for these too.

I also picked up some of the new products from Rimmel:

Rimmel BB Cream 9-in-1 Skin Perfecting Super Makeup SPF25 in Medium
Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Lipstick in 104

THE BREAKDOWN:

Physicians Formula

Super BB All-in1 Beauty Balm Powder in Light/Medium 
Retail: $14.49. On sale for 50% off = $7.24

Happy Booster Illuminating Bronzing Veil
Retail: $14.99. On sale for 50% off = $7.49 minus $3 off peelie coupon on box = $4.49

Happy Booster Baked Bronzer
Retail: $14.99. On sale for 50% off = $7.49 minus $3 off peelie coupon on box = $4.49

Sexy Booster Sexy Glow Blush in Natural 
Retail: $12.49. On sale for 50% off = $6.24

NYC

Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm in Applelicious Pink
Retail: $3.19

Sparkle Eye Dust in Golden Champagne
Retail: $3.19. NYC is BOGO1/2OFF this week, which brings the price for this item down to $1.59

Rimmel

BB Cream 9-in-1 Skin Perfecting Super Makeup SPF25 in Medium
Retail: $7.29

Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Lipstick in 104
Retail: $5.29

Subtotal after sale and peelie coupon deductions: $39.82

But remember that I also had the following:
  • CVS $4 off any $12 beauty purchase coupon (from the red scanner box)
  • $7.50 in Quarterly Extra Bucks
GRAND TOTAL AFTER SALES AND COUPONS: $28.32
TOTAL RETAIL VALUE: $57.93
TOTAL SAVINGS: $29.61

Not too shabby considering that I broke my own rules and paid full price for the two Rimmel items (the horror!).

Let me know if you'd like me to review any of these products and, if so, which ones you'd like to see first!

Have you taken advantage of the CVS deals this week? What have your purchased and how much did you save?

  3. I bought the NYC Sparkle Eye Dust in Golden Champagne the other day. I'm really pleased with it. It's very pretty on my blue eyes. It needs a primer though, that's for sure.

  5. That's a great haul! Which Cvs did you go to if you don't mind me asking? I went to the one close to me in college area and it was a mess since they were redoing the makeup section so I didn't get anything!

  12. What's the fragrance like on the Rimmel lipstick? I love the color, but the Rimmel I have from the regular line has a very "old school" makeup fragrance.

  13. I would really like to see a review of the Rimmel BB Cream. I'm a little bit obsessed with finding the perfect one from the drugstore.

  15. Ahh! Amazing haul! I can't wait to goto CVS now! :D

  16. I would love to see a review on the Rimmel lipstick. I literally almost bought it (I think I was even looking at the same shade). Plus I'm banning myself from purchasing products that are not sealed BUT I will look the other way if you tell me that this doesn't dry out the lips!

    Also would love reviews on the NYC products. People completely overlook them, meanwhile some of their products are really amazing.

  23. I've gone to 2 CVS and there are NO PF products :(

  24. I purchased the PF Happy Booster Bronzing Veil on Sunday. I tried using it with a fan brush without much success. I am used to using a light touch, so that may have been the issue. I'd like you to review the PF Happy Booster & Sexy Booster items. I need to get back to CVS to purchase the other cute PF items I want.

  25. Great haul!! I went to CVS looking for the new PF BB powder but they were all gone, so I picked up a 3 in 1 concealer in light + yellow it was half price plus used a $3 off coupon, then I discovered that my local cvs started carrying Wet n Wild products and they were b1g1 50% off, but they were almost cleared out of everything!! I picked up the trio in Sweet Candy, the new Coverall facepowder in light/medium and blush in Pearlcelint pink. I also received the $4 off $12 cvs coupon and had $1 off any Wet n Wild coupons for each product that I bought. I also had $6 ecbs so it bought it down to $2.98! oop! Love savings

  28. I have not seen that glossy lip balm before. Interesting!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'd love to see a review on the PF Illuminating Bronzer! I probably won't buy it, but when I first saw it, I thought it was so cute! But they look like marshmallow hearts and I'd be tempted to eat them. :P

    ReplyDelete
  30. Awesome deal! Love it when that happens!! :) I really want to know how the Physicians Formula Illuminating Bronzing Veil works for you! I saw it in store a few times and thought it was SUPER cute! Bronzing hearts? Doesn't get much cuter than that! Love it! :)

  31. I got the BB Powder and it is my go-to powder now! I used to be in love with the Revlon Nearly Naked but this has since taken it's spot. I don't require too much coverage (I have minor redness around my nose and not-very-dark circles under my eyes) so I'm not sure that it's going to perform so well for everyone, but it's my favorite! It adds a nice, subtle glow too!

  32. I bought 2 Maybelline products for $15 and was able to use the $4 off coupon plus I had $4 in Extra Bucks and I got back $3 for buying the Maybelline. So $7 out of pocket with $3 for next time.

  33. I also bought the Sexy Booster Sexy Glow Blush in Natural! i love the way it looks and is very pigmented, the only problem is I can't get past the smell! it smells so strong of Vanilla and the smell doesn't fade for a while. I've tried it twice and get a faint headache from the smell, anyone else feel the same??

    ReplyDelete
  34. nice! I love the Rimmel BB! best one thus far from the drugstore for mw. also picked up both Happy Booster blushes and love them too. Could be a little more pigmented but still lovely and I actually like the vanilla frag a lot, haha. also finally got the BronzeBooster with the attached brush (super cute) in med/dark as I have a ton of light bronzers and I get darker in summer but can pull it off now with good blending. Have not seen any new NYC stuff but will look out for those glossy balms for sure! Already had a couple Rimmel Kate lippies and they are lovely and don't have that traditional Rimmel lipstick smell I hate. a tad drying but nothing a good balm or lip butter can't fix!

  35. I recently purchased the happy boost bronzing veil (the little hearts one) and I kind of have a love/hate relationship going on with this product. I love that it can be used as highlighter (I have olive undetone to my skin so the golden sheen looks much better on me than the pink toned highlighters). But I just cannot stand two things: the smell (sooo strong and really gross in my opinion) and the sparkles! If you can see the hearts are of two shades, light nude-brown ones create a luminour glow on the skin and the other ones are bronzy and have those crazy sparkle specks! They really drive me nuts and it's to the point that I want to take those bronzy hearts out and use the more nude ones.
    But overall it's a nice-ish product.
