  1. Congrats, G on being mentioned in another magazine article! You deserve all the recognition because we all know how much time and effort you put into this blog. We all couldn't score nearly as many makeup deals without you compiling the info into one streamlined place. Thank you so much! As a long time reader, I have always said you are our makeup goddess!
    <3 :) xoxo

    1. Oh Carol, thank you so much. I can't even put into words what it means to me that you've stuck by me all these years, and that you are always such an active commenter. I treasure you and feel like I'm seeing an old friend every time one of your comments comes through. Love you, girl!! xo

  2. Oh and finally I see Walgreens is getting on board with their rewards card by offering points on pretty much everything. They way they did it was goofy, just giving you points on certain items. This way is much better!

  3. The real techniques sale does not include the Bold Metals brushes jsyk :)

    1. Aaaah, thank you, Alex. I swear I checked that and thought I saw the sale info in this listings. Argh!

  4. Congratulations on the article! That is awesome :) You definitely deserve it for all the awesome hard work you do for us <3

    Looked everywhere for those limited edition Milani blushes - sadly none of my CVS stores had them. Maybe they are still making their way out to the east coast? *fingers crossed*

    1. Omg thank you so very much for that, girlie!!! *hugs*

      And yeah, I've been looking for those blushes too, but nothing so far! :(

  5. Are Popprazzi Nails replacing Spoiled Nail polishes? It seem to have replaced them all but didn't bring back certain colors. Boohoo. Somebody tell me, I'm so behind on this CVS exclusive.

    1. Yep, they took the place of Spoiled a few months back. But check this out - - they were spotted at Walmart a few months ago:

      I'm not sure if this is eventually going to be a permanent thing at Walmart, but at least there's hope!

  6. Yes a BIG Congrats. I have found out so many sales and scored several great products because of u. I know it can be easy to keep up with all u do. I really appreciate ur hard work. So happy how many others to so for u. It's so nice to see someone's hard work get recognized. Congrats. There r some great sales and seems like that happens just when u have nothing extra in the budget. But know there will be more. The thing about makeup lovers is waiting in another sale may mean u miss out in a products that may be seasonal or LE. But there is always great products coming out it seems like b

    1. Oh Joyce, you are too kind! Thank you so much for the sweet words, and thank you for being such a loyal reader (and commenter). That means the world to me!! xoxo

  7. Congrats! I love your blog. I'm always on the lookout for the email notification for it among all the nail polish blog email notifications I receive. Sometimes, I'm too eager to see what's up and open it immediately; other times, I make myself go thru all the other notifications and look at yours last so I can savor all the news. Thank you for taking the time and trouble to make such a unique blog.

  8. Ulta has free shipping at $35. It ends tonight (I'm assuming midnight), not sure what time zone though
