Fun at the Drugstore: Super Savings!

Do you ever have the urge to go to the drugstore and splurge on awesome stuff? I do all the time. And today, I actually listened to that urge.

After all, you can often find a lot of good values there.

Off I went to Walgreen’s, in search of beauty and other fun things. And boy, did I have fun.

Check out what I got:

Here are some Wet N Wild Color Icon eye shadow singles. Get this: they only cost $1.99 each. So of course, I got four: Envy, Kitten, Lagoon and Penny.

These are actually the reason why I went to the drug store in the first place. Karen at Makeup and Beauty Blog wrote about these super inexpensive eye shadows. After reading that, I just had to get them myself.

Then I noticed that Cover Girl was on sale. Buy-One-Get-One-Half-Off.

*Cue the sound of my wallet opening.*

drugStoreFun02So I got two of the most talked about new things in Cover Girl’s lineup. I got Cover Girl Outlast Lipstain in Scarlet Pucker, normally $8.99, and Cover Girl Smoky ShadowBlast in Purple Plum, normally $8.49. I’m excited to try both of these.

But while drugstores are good for beauty prices, that’s not all they’re good for.

Walgreen’s had a $3.99 DVD bin. Yes, you read that price correctly. And most of the DVDs were actually good.

drugStoreFun03 I picked up Blade Trinity. I don’t have the second one in the Blade series, but that’s fine. The second wasn’t so good.

Plus, $3.99 to look a Ryan Reynolds abs for 2 hours? Yes, please. And it’s a 2-disc special edition. Score!

I thought about getting Dreamgirls, but in the end, I decided against it.

And finally…

drugStoreFun04 Candy! I love candy. Love it. I especially love novelty Twizzlers. The fact that they’re filled with a yummy sweet/sour goo makes them WAY better than the originals.

So after getting all of that…4 eye shadows, one shadow duo stick, a lip stain, a DVD and candy… my bill came to $26.68.

That’s a bargain.

Now I’m going to go play with makeup and eat some candy. Perhaps watch a movie about vampires that doesn’t involve Kristen Stewart.

Have a good day/weekend!

  1. makeup, candy, and Ryan Reynolds… all of my favorite things! haha… great deals!! Have a great weekend too, lady!

  2. Wow, that was a good haul. WnW eye shadows are really pigmented but they’re not so finely milled. I used to have an eye palette from them but I didn’t use it that much so I gave it away.
