CVS Clearance Haul!

Yes, it's that magical time of year again, CVS is having a clearance! And of course I couldn't stay away... I found some really great things, though! Check it out:

That Revlon lip gloss on the bottom right was not on clearance, but I'd been looking for it for awhile so I bought it anyway.

Anyway, I found a few things I'd been wanting for awhile on clearance, which is always exciting. The only things that were only 50% off were the L'Oreal products; everything else was 75% off! I got a Revlon lipstick in Demure, a color I'd almost bought so many times, and the matching nail polish was also on clearance. I was also able to pick up the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear nail polish in Red Carpet for 75% off, another color I'd been admiring for quite some time. You can see a few other goodies up there as well, including two Wet n Wild nail polishes, a L'Oreal HIP duo (there were lots of these babies on sale, so if you're a fan, now is the time to stock up!), a L'Oreal Colour Riche lipstick, a Physician's Formula Healthy Wear Powder foundation compact, and Revlon ColorStay Mineral Mousse.

Here are some swatches of things that I just couldn't wait to try out!

Here is Revlon's Siren:

Revlon Siren; check out that shimmer!
 And here is Siren on my lips; it's a very subtle color, but it's pretty.

 And L'Oreal Colour Riche in Majestic Mauve:

 And finally, Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Plum, which turned out to be a really gorgeous shimmery berry color:

You guys don't get a close-up of this because my hasty swatching led to some dry skin on my lip that made all the closeups of this really ugly. But the color is gorgeous!

So, there you have it! Have you guys stopped by your local CVS to check out their clearance selection? I was pleasantly surprised with what I found, it's worth stopping in if you happen to be near one.


  1. Thank you! I am pretty pleased with it!

  2. Man, my freaking CVS only had two different items on sale. Lame!

  3. 75% off great:)i want to try out Revlon lipsticks but these are not available in my country,I've tried out the L'Oreal ones and its great.

  4. Great finds on clearance! I'm not even sure where a CVS would be anywhere near me. I don't think I'm going to be able to hit up the sale :(

  5. @ Sugarbumpkin, that IS lame! I hear that, while things on sale vary between stores depending on what they've updated in their system, sometimes things are not marked as being on clearance but ring up that way. There is a master list at Nouveau Cheap's blog here: , so if there's something you want on it, it might be worth seeking out and asking for a price-check on!

    @Benish, I'm so bummed you can't get Revlon where you are! I like their lipsticks more than most of L'Oreal's, but L'Oreal does a good job, too. I really like the Infallible lipsticks!

    @The Peach, I am so sad for you! That is too bad you don't have a CVS locally, the clearances are hit-or-miss, but a lot of fun to check out! They do this a couple of times a year, maybe next time around you'll be traveling near one :)
