Weekly Beauty Bargains: 7/22/12

Hi everyone! I'm back with a few beauty items I have found for a great deal this week! A couple of the items I got last week but should still be available. Hope you enjoy!

Brands featured: Wet n Wild, Maybelline, Cover Girl, Clean & Clear

Clean & Clear "Finishes: Mattifying Moisturizer
Where to find: Big Lots
Sale Price: $3.80

I picked up this moisturizer after watching one of my favorite beauty bloggers (Lillian Masie) talk about it in one of her videos.  This is an oil-free moisturizer that is supposed to leave your face with a mattified finish and help absorb oil through out the day. Now my skin is more on the dry side so I was curios to see how this would work. It is definitely a light moisturizer but doesn't leave your skin with that shiny "just moisturized" look. I would highly recommend it to combination to oily skin types!

Cover Girl "Lash Blast" Mascara (Original, Fusion, & Luxe)
Where to find: Big Lots
Sale Price: $1.50
Okay, so I can't take credit for this find. I was notified by one of my friends that Big Lots had a stash of Lash Blast mascara on sale for $1.50. Of course I rushed over to investigate and I discovered that all three types of Lash Blast were on sale! I picked up 4 ( I will probably go back for more) haha. My Big Lots displayed the original, Fusion, and Luxe Lash Blast mascara which I though was great. There's a selection for everyone!

Maybelline Eye Studio Eye Shadow Trio
Where to find: Big Lots
Sale Price: $2.50
I was excited to see Big Lots have some actual wearable shadows that were in decent condition. I only spotted two different colored trios and decided that this gold, purple, and pink would be a pretty choice. These are cream shadows with a hint of shimmer. The pigment is really great in these! I was very surprised because I'm not a huge cream shadow fan. Be sure to check your big lots for these cute trios!

Maybelline Eye Studio Marbled Eye Shadow in "Mocha Mirage"
Where to find: CVS Pharmacy
Sale Price: 50% off original pricing of $7.49 (about $3.75)

I went on a hunt this morning at about 9 in the morning for Walgreens and CVS' weekly sales that change every Sunday. I picked up this little guy at CVS when I saw a 50% off sticker on it. I have actually never tried these eye shadows and figured this would be a good opportunity! I absolutely loved the color! I wore it today with a light tinted moisturizer and a little blush. It was so pretty and subtle. The pigmentation was also great. CVS had about 4 or five color choices which was awesome as well!
Wet n Wild "Mega Glo" Illuminating Powder
Where to find: K Mart, CVS, Walmart etc.
Price: $3.99/ Compared to Cargo's Beach Blushes $30

I stumbled upon this interesting compact in K Mart and knew I had seen a similar high end product somewhere before. I decided to buy it (it was not on sale but 3.99 is considered almost sale price to me) and take it home to do some research to find the product so similar that was slipping my mind. Finally I realized it was almost identical to Cargo's Beach Blushes! The Beach Blushes generally retail for $30 dollars! As you can tell from the picture they are very similar. I love this little compact because it is extremely versatile. You can use it as a highlighting powder, eye shadow, or even a bronzer. For $3.99 that's a lot of use!

Wet n Wild "Glamorous Everyday Fabulous Every Way" Kit
Where to Find: Walgreens
Sale Price: $1.99

My last find was one of the best and funnest bargains I have found in a while! Last week I discovered a few of these kits at Walgreens with an extremely low price of $1.99 (this is cheaper than their mascara?!) I immediately stocked up and got 3 of them (they only came in two colors). The kit features a color icon eye liner, eye shadow trio in "I'm Getting Sunburned", Mega Slicks lip gloss, and Mega Plump mascara. The products are mini size except for the eye shadow BUT for $1.99 you can't really complain. Not to mention these kits are great for travel! Go check out your Walgreens to see if any are still hangin' out!

Well guys, that's it for my weekly bargain finds! Hope you all enjoyed and are able to get your hands on these items!

Have a lovely day. -Shelbey
