Collective Haul - CVS, Ulta, MAC, and More...

I went back to CVS to see what else I can find on clearance. I didn't have much luck with the last two CVS I went to but still managed to find something useful.

CVS purchases
  • Sally Hansen Quick Care Clean-Up for Manicures, $2.49
  • Sally Hansen Cuticle Treatment, $2.49
  • Sally Hansen Line Fix Lip Repair, $2.82
  • Sally Hansen Little Details Point-tip Tweezer, $1.49
  • Sally Hansen Natural Powder Blush Cherub, $2.95
  • Sally Hansen Fast Fix Concealer, $2.25
  • Revlon Colorstay Mineral Makeup Mousse foundation, $3.37
  • Revon Colorstay Glacis Mineral Perpetual, $2.45
  • Revon Colorstay Glacis Mineral Overtime Wine, $2.45
  • Milani Infinite Liquid Eye Liner Eternal, $6.79
  • Milani Easybrow Automatic Pencil, $2.99 BOGO 50% off
I saved a total of $71.35 at CVS.

Ulta Purchases
  • Kenra Platinum Finishing Spray Maximum Hold, $20.00. This is a repurchase. I've really been liking this hair spray. It works so much better than the drugstore brands I tried.
  • Biolage Deep Smoothing Shampoo, $15.00
  • Biolage Freeze Fix Hair Spray Firm Hold, $16.00
  • Biolage Smoothing Shine Milk, free because Biolage products were buy 2 get one free. Retails for $15.00
  • Ulta Moisturizing Body Lotion Endless Sunset, free by using Ulta rewards coupon. Retails for $9.00.
I tried to stay away from makeup products but could certainly use hair products. I saved myself $34.20 on this shopping trip! Because I used my 20% off coupon, Reward coupon, and purchased BOGO items.

I went to the CCO and returned a couple products that didn't really work for me. In exchange, I got the MAC Glamorous Mineralize Kit from last holiday collection ($34.75 but with the exchange, I only paid about $6.00). I was mainly interested in the Indianwood paintpot. The eyeshadows and lipglass are pretty but I probably already have something that looks similar to them and I rarely use mascara so the Zoom Lash would be useless as well. I'm thinking of keeping the paint pot and give away the other products.

I won the Lorac Amethyst Smokey Plum Shades palette and China Glaze Frostbite from Stephanie H's giveaway. I'm so excited since I rarely win anything. Aside from that, I can't wait to give these a try. I think I've only done one plum look so far. The shades in this palette seem like they can be used together to create one look.  Again, thank you so much Stephanie for the chance to win these products.

I love the intense blue color of Frostbite, although I don't think the name suits the color. It looks similar to NYX Ink nail polish but with shimmers.

My friend Celia surprised me yesterday with a couple gifts. She got me more nail wheels, which is awesome because sometimes I just don't want to use my nails for swatches so these do come in handy. She also got me China Glaze Lorelei's Tiara. She knows I've been on a glitter polish craze lately and this one I don't have. It's silver and blue glitters. So cute! I think it would make a perfect pair with Frostbite.

So this is it for my collective haul. Hopefully, I don't get anymore beauty products for a while and make use of the recent ones I purchased and received.

Has anyone tried Biolage products? Do you like them? Or perhaps you could recommend me your favorite hair products.
