Almay Beauty Products

Most recently I scored some Almay beauty products for FREE. Yes, you read that: FREE! I’ll go into details on how I was able to get 10 Almay beauty products for free at the end of this post.

To start off, I got 4 packs of makeup remover wipes. I love that they’re gentle on my skin and get all of my makeup completely off.

Next I got 4 lovely lip glosses. Had I known they weren’t going to be on the same sale as the wipes the following week, I would have gotten more. The two in the middle are twins because Walgreen’s didn’t have much of a selection.

From Left to Right: Cantaloupe, Apricot and Pink.

If I have to choose one to be my favorite, I’d go with pink. The shade is beautiful and these glosses don’t put too much color on your lips; just enough. They’re not overly sticky like some lip glosses and are great for when you just don’t want to wear lipstick.

Left to Right: Smoke & Hot Fudge

Left to Right: Hot Fudge & Smoke

I love the richness of the Hot Fudge brown color but have to say that I absolutely love the smoke color. I grabbed these two colors because I figure they’ll work well together or apart. Plus, they were the nicest colors to choose from since the other colors available were a royal blue and a baby blue and I’m just not about that life. Ha Ha! The tag on the eyeshadows pretty much sums them up, they’re softies. They’re not a grainy, rough eyeshadow to work with, they’re soft.

Now onto the goody details. I was able to score these free via Walgreen’s sale going on right now for Buy 1 Get 1 50% off. The sale runs through Saturday and does not include lip glosses (sorry!). There’s a $5/2 coupon available here, along with a $2 off ea. walgreens in store booklet coupon that makes the eyeshadows and the wipes above absolutely FREE! Be warned, some cashiers will argue with you if you tell them they coupon needs to be adjusted down. Just stand your ground and if all else fails, toss the coupon policy at them. Let me break down how the transaction will go:

Buy 2 Almay Eyeshadows (the ones I show): $4.99 ea.
B1G1 50% makes 2nd one $2.49
Total before coupons: $7.48
Use $2 Coupon from Walgreens booklet (takes $2 off each product)
Use 1 $5/2 Almay Printable Coupon (has to be manually adjusted down to remaining amount
Total after coupons: Free! (some may pay tax)


Reaching the Inner Girly Girl in Me

Almost every girl grows up loving makeup, except me. I played with makeup when I was really little but I never really got hooked on it. A ton of my friends are amazing at applying makeup and creating gorgeous looks with ease. I tend to test my luck with creating a gorgeous look but almost always mess up and get so frustrated that I just don’t want to continue.

Today I was feeling lucky and decided to play around with some new Rimmel products sent to me on behalf of Influenster for becoming a brand badge winner. The products include:

    • Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara in 001 Black
    • Scandaleyes Precision Micro Eyeliner
    • Scandaleyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner
    • Show Off Lip Lacquer in 101 Cesetial
    • Show Off Lip Lacquer in 400 Big Bang

Top: Cesetial Bottom: Big Bang

Left: Thick & Thin Right: Precision Micro

Big Bang, Cesetial, Thick & Thin and Precision Micro

Now for the look you’ve all been waiting for!!!!

Not too shabby for having only tried liquid eyeliner twice. I finished this look off with the Big Bang Lip Lacquer, just to be bold. *Note: First time ever wearing red!*

The products I used:

    • Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara
    • Scandaleyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner
    • Show Off Lip Lacquer – Big Bang
    • Urban Decay Eye Primer
    • Coastal Scents Eyeshadow – Brownish purple hue
