I have not purposely been neglecting my blog. I began a post last weekend and I actually ended up losing all of my work because like a dummy…I did not save my work! I have recovered from the anger and I’m ready to write again…lol. A few weeks ago now I had so many CVS coupons and discounts I feel like I could have purchased half of the store. However you know what I used all those perks on…beauty products!
CVS/Ulta Beauty Deals and Steals
If you’re not in the know, CVS has a Beauty Club program in addition to the Extracare Card. Beauty junkies like myself can appreciate the fact that every $50 you spend on Beauty gets you 5 Extrabucks! I literally shop CVS once a week even if I am just browsing the store…they know me at every CVS within a 10 mile radius of my home…haha. So I recently had a handful of coupons that earned me a whopping $30 off! My damage ended up being 9 items for a total of about $40 which in unheard of as the cost of drugstore cosmetics has been on a steady climb.
I also popped my head into Ulta in search of the elusive Revlon CC cream in Medium/Deep. I’ve decided that unless you order that shade direct from Revlon it is like the Easter Bunny…you’ll never see it! Well you know I did not leave my Mothership empty handed. Ardell lashes were on redline so I picked up a pair of the new Lash Lites in #335. I’ve worn them about 3 times since then and they are super comfortable. After grabbing those and a bottle of Sally Hansen Xtreme Nails ; I was quickly informed at the register that Ulta’s Beauty Club Rewards program was changing and it was my last chance to select a free item with my points.
Needless to say I picked up my item of choice as instructed: NYX Butter lip balm in Parfait. The new Ulta rewards system is easier to understand and a lot more to the point and succinct. In short the more you spend the more points you earn; the more points you earn the more discounts you get off merchandise…sound familiar?! (See above)
I hope you guys are having a fabulous week and enjoyed this post! The products I purchased are pictured and listed below. Please leave a comment if you would like a review on any of these products! xo
