No buy FAIL.

I admit it, I’m weak. When faced with shopping temptation I often cave. I especially am susceptible to sale goggles as you will see from the pictures below. group-shotGroup shot; from L to R top row: back Maybelline Sequins for frankening, 3 Sephora by OPIs, 3 bottles of Revlon Popular (to be frankened). Bottom row: Salon Perfect Snow Flurry (I think?), the Milani holos, and 2 Barielles.

I would bet my right arm that this bottle of Salon Perfect’s holiday LE polish (Snow Flurry) is a 100% dupe for China Glaze Frosty from a past holiday collex. I never found Frosty locally but for $3.98 it works for me. Salon Perfect is made by American International Industries, Inc. which is the parent company of China Glaze. This LE holiday display (at WalMart) also contained a dupes of other past China Glaze holiday shades like Party Hearty and Mistletoe Kisses.

SOPI

 

Marshall’s at lunch yesterday again yielded some pretty cool finds. These are my first Sephora by OPIs-L to R are: Never Enough Shoes, Fancy Schmancy and Don’t Be Eggnog-ious. I’m collecting copper glitters to use in frankens-they are hard to find loose! I  only ever see copper glitter offered already in a polish.

Also from Marshall’s, Barielle Envy and Wrapped in Ribbons. I’ve never seen Envy but it has a cool duochrome thing going on. Looks really cool layered over black!

revlon-popular

 

From Rite Aid today, these were 75% off and called out to me “Add stuff to me!!!”. Revlon Popular is a cool light pink base with tiny & medium sized silver hexes. I will be adding white, gunmetal and pink glitter to see how it shakes out. Get it, SHAKES out? Franken humor LOL.

milani-holos

 

I never had a big yen for these when they were full price because they are scattered holo particles and I am a linear holo kinda girl. But for $1.37 a pop I will make an exception.

  1. How do you find these amazing sales? I live in L.A. & we usually get all the good collections early & ‘HTF’ stuff is always readily available (for example, I bought Revlon’s “Whimsical” at a local CVS in November of last year) but I almost never find deep discounts on good stuff. WHY??? LOL.

    • CVS only has these big sales twice a year; Rite Aid is sporadic. I think I just happen to be in the right place at the right time and it helps that I live in an area devoid of women under the age of 50 too. Yay old people! If I lived in LA I would have to panhandle I’d be so broke from all the shopping!
