IMPORTANT: Some readers have recently spotted the Kat Von D cosmetics I posted about HERE at their Burlington stores recently. I personally have found limited edition drugstore cosmetics from Wet n Wild, and full displays of Profusion palettes that I've never seen at Walgreens or elsewhere, at Burlington, as well as Color Club polishes (I bought Color Club holo polishes at Burlington over the summertime for $3.99 each) and much, much more. So it pays to go--and keep checking back--because you never know what may pop up.
Which brings me to my latest haul...
December Burlington Coat Factory Haul
If you're a longtime reader of my blog, then you know I love me some Vitabath. They really stepped up their game when they released their new lines a few years back, and although I'm a huge fan of the body washes (you must try Luscious Lemon Creme) I also love their body sprays and body lotions. You can find Vitabath at Rite Aid, Kmart and Ulta for full price, but I had no idea Burlington carried Vitabath until I found these recently:
Vitabath Fruit Fanatic Body Lotion in Wild Red Cherry
(Retail: $7.95, 12 oz.; Burlington Coat Factory price: $4.99)
Wild Red Cherry is probably the best cherry scent I've ever encountered when it comes to body products. It is sweet and tart, with a hint of a floral background. It actually smells more like real cherries than that fake "cherry candy" scent you sometimes find in body products or candles, and it's one of my favorites from Vitabath. This lotion formula is wonderful as well--it makes my skin feel incredibly smooth, while leaving a smooth and soft (but not sticky or greasy) protective coating on the skin.
Cargo Limited Edition 2013 Let's Meet in Paris Palette
(Retail: $39; Burlington Coat Factory price: $12.99)
I want to thank my pal Lisa (@makeuplunchanddinner on Instagram) for posting THIS PIC of the Cargo Limited Edition Vintage Escape Palette she found at her local Burlington a few weeks ago for $12.99 (retail: $39). Naturally, Lisa's pic sent me into "must find" mode, and when I reposted Lisa's pic on Instagram, reader Andrea let me know that she found Cargo palettes at a Burlington here in San Diego. (If you're in SD and you haven't been to the new Burlington near SDSU, on the corner of 54th and University where the old Kmart used to be, that's where I found THIS palette.) So thank you so much, Lisa and Andrea, for the fantastic tips!
So yeah, I found the Cargo Limited Edition 2013 Let's Meet in Paris Palette at Burlington for $12.99 (retail: $39). SCORE!
The colors in this palette are beautiful and the palette comes with a nice double-ended brush as well. I'm super pleased with the texture and pigmentation of these shadows--you can see some swatches over at Stephanie Louise's blog HERE.
Bonus Haul Pics:
First let me say that I'm kind of a clog person. I'm all about comfort, but I'm particular about my clogs. I like to pair them with structured, wide-leg trousers or jeans and cute sweaters, so they have to be "casual-dressy" if that makes any sense. Anyway, if you're a clog person too, then you know that Born clogs can be expensive. Even their less expensive line, BOC Born Concept, isn't cheap--brand new styles can run from $60-$80. So when I found this pair (older style) at Burlington for $29.99, I couldn't say no. You can find these for about $39 at various online discount retailers, so $29 is a nice deal.
Final thoughts: If you haven't been to your local Burlington Coat Factory in a while, GO. And do not skip the beauty section--they are really stepping it up lately and you just might find some Kat Von D, Cargo, or other goodies there (and some nice skincare, haircare and body care products too). In fact, reader @elisechristine91 just shared with me a few hours ago this Philosophy sighting at her local Burlington--what a great deal, right? You just never know what you may find!
Have you found any good deals (makeup or otherwise) at your local Burlington Coat Factory lately? I'd love to hear all about your hauls!
