Weekly Roundup: 6/19-6/25

  1. I purchased 100 Bobbi Brown Blotting Sheets for $5. Currently, with every single order, no minimum, you get a sample size mascara, face lotion and you can choose between 2 of either foundation, tinted moisturizer, eye creme, or lip balm.  Free shipping with code bronze55!  I also purchased through to get 5% cash back which in turn justified the tax to only 3%
  2. I bought a bottle of Suave Professionals Heat Protection Spray and Touchable Finish Hairspray in Lightweight Hold for free!  My coupons for free bottle of Suave expired today and I had to go to Hannaford because I've only seen the full selection of the line at supermarkets.  It's weird, you'd think they'd have them at drugstores, but no, they only have the original Suave line which is a little iffy.  The hairspray smells amazing and I've never gotten a lightweight hold hairspray before and I love how this one doesn't feel crunchy.  And of course, you can never go without heat protectant.  I still have 2 more free bottle of Suave coupons and I'm planning on purchasing the Shine Spray but I have a hard time finding it on the shelves.  Currently I have 4 bottles of heat protectant, 7 bottles of dry shampoo, and 4 shine sprays so I don't know what I'm going to get for the 4th free coupon.  They have 2 voluminizing mousses/sprays and curling ones, but I have naturally big hair and it is chemically straightened at the last 18 inches so any type of scrunching looks horrid...
  3. I purchased a bottle of the Rimmel Fix & Perfect Primer for $2.60 because they're 75% at CVS.  I think the guy messed up or the computers are wrong because they're $7.79 originally and $2.60 is 66% off.....that's okay, its only $0.60 more.  The primer is always out of stock at CVS because it is 75% off, but I found 3 bottles laying in random places.  I only grabbed 1 because it was the most sanitary one; the rest looked like someone tried to test it out and got product all over the screw cap.  Cool.  Beauty hoarders also like to buy backups just in case we run out of something so I might go buy the remaining 2 even though they're really can't find them anywhere these days!
  4. So I grabbed another nail polish.  This is my 24th nail polish purchase in the past 2 months and I don't ever do my nails so I'm a bit impulsive.  Anywho, I got the Sally Hansen Insta Dri Nail Color in Mint Sprint.  Theyre $5.49 at CVS and you get $2 ECB back with purchase (limit 1) and I had a $1 off coupon (the guy accidentally put my coupon in my bag, LOL) so it ended up being $2.49 which is an okay price for polishes.  The Revlon Polishes are actually cheaper this week because they're $1.99 after ECBs and they have more product.  I might go back and grab 6 more because I'm an impulsive they'll make my count up to 30. Smart Connie. Real smart.
  5. Power Bar Chocolate Bites are free after ECBs this week at CVS so I grabbed a bag.
  6. I purchased 2 boxes of Samy Fat Foam Hair Dye in Medium Blonde at Rite Aid.  They were $8.99 a box and I had 2 $5 off coupon from Rite Aid Video Values and 2 $3 off facebook coupons.  You also got $5 in +UP for purchasing (limit 2).  Needless to say, I technically received $8 for purchasing these.
  7. Revlon Colorstay cosmetics are 40% this week at Rite Aid.  I grabbed 2 Just Bitten Lip Stains in Flame and Passion.  They were $8.99 down to $5.39 each and I had 2 $2 off peelie coupons, 2 $2 off Rite Aid Video Values coupons, $1 off non-prescription purchase Rite Aid Video Values coupon and a $3 off $15 purchase from doing a Rite Aid survey so I got $1.21 for buying them.
  8. Most Victoria's Secret Pink Bras are $12.99  from $19.95-28.50 now so I got 2.  I could have also gotten a free ruched panty with my purchase, but I didn't have time to print out the coupon.  New Pink Nation sign ups can print out a free ruched panty with purchase coupon.
  9. I bought a bottle of Suave Professionals Touchable Finish Hairspray in Extra Hold and the Dry Shampoo for free with my 2 free Suave product coupons.  I looked in 5 stores today and NONE of them had the Sleek Anti Frizz Cream nor the Vibrant Shine Spray so I just got the hairspray and dry shampoo.
  10. And then impulsive little me decided that I needed more nail polish so I bought another Sally Hansen Insta Dri and 3 bottles of Revlon polishes.  After ECBs, I paid like $8.50 for them which is a bit much in my standards for drugstore nail polishes so I might just return these.
  11. Free Quiznos sub with purchase of sub and fountain drink with my coupon.
  12. Returned a Revlon Nail Polish in Golden which was a nasty gold color and Not So Blueberry which was just an attack of shimmers.  I also returned my Physicians Formula Talc Free Mineral Powder which was really cakey on the skin.  
  13. Popcorn chicken deluxe at Corner Ice Cream :D
  14. Got a panty from VS Pink for $3.99 and got a ruched back one for free with Pink Nation coupon.
  15. Got another Murad Oil Free Mattifying Lotion from Sephora JCP
I bought $170 worth of stuff and spent $46 out of pocket and got $5 in EBC and $10 in +UP rewards.
