Makeup Haul: CVS Semi-Annual Sale

A couple days ago,I stopped by CVS and was thrilled to find out that I had rolled up on the semi-annual beauty sale. Here's what I picked up:


This is a Milani lipstick in Double Expresso
Closeup of the shade:


I'm a huge fan of L'Oreal HIP products so I had to snatch up these cream shadow paints. The left is "Witty" and the right is "Steely"


A few of the shadow duos were marked down too:

Left, "Playful, Right "Spirited"

I was pumped to see the Milani quads on clearance. They get great reviews on Makeup Alley. They last long, and are very well-pigmented. From left to right: Wild Violets, Touch of Brown, and Sedona Sunset.




All of these items were 75% off, so I ended up spending less than $25. There were markdowns in almost all brands, including Revlon, Rimmel, Almay, Covergirl, and more drugstore faves, but I stopped myself, Lots of lip products marked down too, but I have a lot of those already. Check out the sale while there's still plenty to choose from.

Great haul! I was there the other day too and snatched up a few Rimmel products because they have been marked down up to 75% off.

Waaah!! I am SO jealous! I went to three different CVS locations here in San Diego today and NONE of them had this sale going on. I remember this sale from last year so I know it SHOULD be going on here, but maybe it's a regional thing and it will hit CA later. I hope it's soon because these sale posts are torture. Congrats--I have been eyeing those HiP paints forEVER and I sure would like to get one for 2 bucks. I hear they make an excellent eyeshadow primer. Have you ever used yours for primer?

Those are some good deals, I did not see any clearance stuff in my CVS at all. Rite-Aid had 75% off on some of their items. They had a few of the HiP duos at 75% off. I used a $3.00 manuf. coup and I paid $1.00 for two duos.

@Recessionista. . .I did use the paints as primer today, and it's working pretty well.

Okay Niki, I checked today and I saw all the clearance items that you showed in your post and some clearance on Revlon, Rimmel and Maybelline. I got all the HiP Creme Shadow Paint for FREE. They were reduced to $2.99 each and I had manufacturer coupons for $3.00 off so all I paid was the tax on each one.

I also noticed that Maybelline had these new Eye Studio "baked marbleized eyeshadows" for $6.99 at CVS and looked similar to MAC Marbleized Shadows and wondered if anybody has tired them?

^^^ tira did this post actually. anyway, i got a $3 l'oreal coupon and i want to use it on some of this clearance stuff. i hope they don't give me hard time about it.

I'm mad I missed this. I'll be checking today but I'm pretty sure there's nothing left :( Good buys tho!

Sorry Tira my bad!! They might, if they do just go to another CVS. Usually if there is a male cashier, they don't know any better so they will just go ahead and take them.
