Drugstore Discovery: CVS 20% Beauty Purchase Deal

Okay ladies and gents, if you have a CVS store near by and have been eyeing some goodies you’ve been meaning to snatch up but haven’t… It’s time to do so! CVS is offering their Extra Care Members (you know that card you swipe for some awesome deals–basically a membership card which is free) a 20% off coupon through their Facebook for the first 100,000 people to register!

If you don’t have an Extra Care card, it’s easy and completely hassle free to sign up, and even easier to join the Beauty Club (a club within the club where you get awesome deals too!). Please click here if you haven’t joined the club yet.

To get this snazzy deal, simply go to the CVS Beauty Club fanpage on Facebook–yes, on Facebook! And scroll down until you see…

Then, click on the video looking button and this should pop up…

Then you just fill out the necessary information, click submit and voila! They should send you the coupon in your email asap and you’re ready to save and spend!

I just received my coupon and it expires 8/26/2012, which is 3 days from now.

I’ve heard that this doesn’t work in conjunction to the sale products going on right now, so be sure and check with your cashier if it does or doesn’t apply to your purchase (as it has no restrictions on the fine print).

Good luck, and hope you find some great deals!

Swatches | Sugarpill Limited Edition “@#$%!”

As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, I’m always impressed with Amy’s (aka Shrinkle) Sugarpill eyeshadows. For one the color range is amazing, and second the pigmentation is perfection.

If any of you went to IMATS LA this past June, you must have stood in the worth-the-wait line of the Sugarpill booth. I was so giddy, I nearly died of excitement nearing the booth because of how colorful and lively the girls were. One eyeshadow in particular caught my eye the most, it’s called “@#$%!” and how exactly you pronounce that, I have no clue! BUT, when I did ask for it, the salesladies just referred to it as the “limited edition” eyeshadow. And well, there ya go! It is LIMITED EDITION, which meant… yes, I had to get it for that reason. And another reason was because it was exclusive to IMATS only! How exciting is that? Yeah, pretty darn exciting.. I know. I didn’t even need to swatch it to know I wanted it.

@#$%! is a cool toned berry red with silver microglitters/shimmer that actually stay when swatched and applied/blended with a brush (WOW!). The texture is perfect, it’s not gritty as you’d imagine with the fine glitters and it feels like butter… so smooth.

As soon as I took this bad boy home, I noticed it looked familiar to another color I just picked up from Sugarpill, called Love+, the bright vibrant red available on its own or in the Burning Heart palette.

But long behold, no two eyeshadows are ever the same (unless you really have two of the same eyeshadows!).

Here is Love+

And here is @#$%!

As you can see, Love+ is a lovely primary red. It’s just RED. True to color, red. It’s matte with no shimmers and has a similar smooth texture when swatched and applied.

Here is Love+ on the left and @#$%! on the right.

Now, I love these colors! I’m not one to sport the red everyday on my eyes, but hey I like options. I do not own any other red eyeshadows so I cannot compare these to any brands or other products, but as far as these go, I really like them! Normally Sugarpill eyeshadows retail for $12 but at IMATS I got @#$%! for only $8.40 and Love+ was in a palette I got for $24! Such a steal!

I am not exactly sure about the availability of @#$%!, whether it is only an exclusive to the LA IMATS or if it will go to the others, or even if it will be released in the near future. But I really do enjoy the color. Did you miss out? Probably not, but I have yet to discover any comparisons if there are any.

IMATS LA 2012: Our Experience

Hey lovelies! It’s Alyssa here to share with you guys how awesome IMATS was. If you guys don’t know what IMATS is, it stands for “International Makeup Artist Trade Show” where lots and lots of vendors, makeup artists, makeup fanatics, and enthusiasts like myself basically get together and check out the new makeup products that will be coming out, see how to apply makeup, and just see awesome and amazing/talented people.

We spent this whole past weekend in Los Angeles, which was just too much fun! Here’s a video on some footage and photos we took at IMATS as well as a sneak peak to the haul we are going to post soon as well.

Update and another Haul!

We are now done with school and we are so excited for what we have planned for this blog! We have been so busy and MIA with class, studying, work, and our personal lives that we couldn’t even find the time to hang out with each other. But do not fret! We are back, and ready to take action!

We filmed this haul (Clothes and Jewelry!) maybe a couple of weeks ago, so I hope you enjoy! Let us know what you have gotten for Summer and the fashion trends you look forward to rocking!

Retail Indulgence: Collective Haul from February! (Fashion and Beauty)

We hope you all had a great leap day/hump day! For the past month of February we both made trips to Forever 21, H&M, our local drugstores, and other fun places and got a lot of great items at an affordable price!

Because our haul was actually really long, we divided the haul into two separate videos so if you’re interested in one thing over the other you can watch either or, or if you’re feeling daring you can watch both! As you all know, we love to shop so this was definitely a lot of fun to film for you guys, we hope you enjoy!
