Beauty Bargain Series: Drugstore Deals

Drugstore Should NOT Cost as Much as High End!

Is it just me or have drugstore beauty products gotten a little bid out of hand with their prices?  Whenever I go to the drugstore to get makeup I don't want to end up paying anything NEAR to the price of what I would pay for a high end makeup product at Sephora. Now my go-to drugstore is always Walgreens. Yes, some of their beauty products can be up to a dollar more than what you could find at Walmart. However, Walgreens ALWAYS has great deals on various products that you cannot find anywhere else. 

So, with that being said I have presented myself with a simple rule: When going to Walgreens I will only buy products that have orange tags (orange tags represent a fully discounted price rather than "buy on get one" or a certain percentage off). After adapting to this rule I have came out of Walgreens with some GREAT deals. Each time I have went I have paid NO more than 5 dollars for a product (sometimes as little as 99 cents) and saved at least $20.

What to look for when "bargain" beauty shopping @ Walgreens:
-Orange tags are your BEST friend! They almost always represent a price lower than 50% off!
-Yellow Tags: These tags can either be "buy one get one 50% off" or a certain percentage off
-White Tags: White tags are generally only a couple dollars off, but if it's something you really want then take it!
-LOOK FOR REVLON: Walgreens ALWAYS has a discount on some type of Revlon products!

Included in the picture above:
-Revlon Custom Eyes Mascara: Regular Price $6.29/Sale Price $2.29
-Revlon Luxurious Color Smokey Crayon: Regular Price 6.99/Sale Price $2.49
-Revlon Nail Enamel in "Stunning": Regular Price $5.49/Sale Price $3.84
-Revlon Nail Enamel in "Naughty": Regular Price $5.49/Sale Price $3.84
-Yes to Carrots Lip Tint in "Ready Red": Regular Price $5.49/Sale Price $2.69

For all 5 products I spent $16.63 and Saved $20.10
Not sure about you guys but paying almost $40 for drugstore makeup is NOT in my agenda.
