May Favorite and CVS Clearance Sale Haul

Don't forget to enter my giveaway. It ends on June 12, 2011 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific time.


Unfortunately for the month of May, I didn't finish any products. At least I have my favorites. :)

May Favorites Products
Avon Anew Rejuvenate Revitalizing Night Cream: I received this from Avon giveaway they had several months ago. I ended up only keeping two out of the four products. The other two had chemicals I'm allergic to, therefore, I gave them away. Even though I'm not too keen on the smell of the product of the night cream, I actually love it. It's very moisturizing and silky smooth on the skin. My skin looks better after I apply it and feels very moist in the morning. I will thoroughly review later in a post.

Vivite Exfoliating Facial Cleanser: I also won this in a giveaway. I love two in one products that actually work. It's recommended to use two times a week which makes sense. It's not a good idea to exfoliate your skin everyday. You can definitely feel the granules as you exfoliate your skin. At the same time, it's not harsh on the skin. It also saves time and water since you only need to use this to cleanse your face and exfoliate at the same time! I will thoroughly review this product too. ;)

Essie Nail Polish in Coat Azure: I love Essie nail polishes other than OPI. I think they're the best nail polishes that aren't drugstores. I'm also a big fan of blue nail polishes since I'm a freak of nature when it comes to blue. I have a lot of blue items. :X You will see the blue swatch towards the end of this post.

Maybelline EyeStudio in #200 Alluring Almond: I'm a big fan of the Maybelline EyeStudio palettes. This is my fifth one I think. :X I have Green With Envy, Give Me GoldTaupe Temptress, and Legendary Lilac. The only bad thing I noticed is most of the palettes I tend to pick one or two colors and only use those. Then again most palettes are like that for me. :X If you're not into shiny eyeshadows, then this isn't for you. I'm into shiny eyeshadows and think this is a great neutral palette. I will post a look with this palette in a future post.

Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick in #840 Coral Lustre: Oh mi gosh this lipstick color is gorgeous! I cannot pull of coral/orange lipstick, but this one looks good on me or at least I think so. I think the quality of this lipstick is similar to the other ColorSensational Lipsticks but a little bit creamier. I definitely recommend this color. I will post a review on this lipstick in a future post.


The past couple of weeks I bought couple of stuff from the CVS clearance sale. Unfortunately, the CVS by my house didn't label the Essie nail polishes. I had to scan them to see if they were on sale and yup, they were. I bought two Essie nail polishes.
This is in Sand Tropez. It's such a gorgeous beige color.
This is in Coat Azure. It's such a gorgeous blue color. It has to be my favorite purchase. :)

I also bought Revlon Colorstay Mineral Finishing Powder. I definitely don't need this product, but I couldn't refuge with 75% off and $2 off coupon. :X Amazing what sales can make you buy!
This is in #010 Brighten. I heard it's a great highlighter color.

Essie was on sale? o_O How much did you pay for them?

(X-Men looks really interesting. Plans so far include hiking and a lunch date with a friend =)

ShinyPrettyThings said...

ooooo I heard that the CVS sale had already started!!! you got such great deals ^^ I'm gonna go check out the sale tmrw. Hope there's still some stuff left!!

And to answer your question, yes using a mask every night does help. i have rather dry skin that can get oily throughout the day & used to have to blot at least twice a day. But using masks really moisturizes your skin & locks in the moisture of the skincare stuff you use after. the brightening/whitening properties that the masks say they provide aren't permanent so there's no miracles hahaha but you do wake up w/ your skin glowing after using masks!! thats when you know it works lol i guess everyday isn't necessary, but it's just become a habit of mine. hope this helps!!

Awww you might like the SH Crackle Polishes! They just didn't work out for me, the glitter ones look way better than the white one! Can't wait to see your review! :)

Ahleessa said...

Lanie: Sorry I responded so late! All the CVS has the essie nail polishes on clearance sale. They only have particular 4 colors on sale for 50% off. You just have to scan the stickers at the scanning machine. For some odd reason, they don't have the stickers for them. :/ I hope you get to find them!
