My recent CVS haul

I scored a couple of goodies on my last CVS haul. Thanks to the tip of Nouveau Cheap, I got a couple of free items! If you don't read her blog already, make sure you do. She shares ways to save on beauty products, as well as dupes on high end brands [I totally adore and worship her].

Anyway, I purchased a Lemon Drop EOS lip balm, 3 Revlon nail polishes [Steel her Heart, Plum Night, and the a new one from their Fire and Ice collection, Temptress] and a piece of caramel candy for a total of $4.89 [with taxes included]. I was on the lookout for Perplex but my Walgreens didn't have it :(

Here's how:

I scanned my CVS card in-store, and received a $4 off any Revlon cosmetics purchase.

I had to do it on 3 separate transactions.

Transaction #1
EOS lip balm $2.99 minus $2.99 extra care bucks
Paid $3.20[with taxes]

Transaction #2
1st Revlon Nail polish $4.99
2nd Revlon Nail polish $2.59 because it was BOGO 50% off
$2.99 extra bucks from Transaction #1
$4.00 Revlon coupon from CVS
Paid $1.01 [with taxes]
I also got a $5 extra bucks with 2 Revlon beauty products

Transaction #3
3rd Revlon nail polish $4.99
Caramel candy $.33
$5.00extra bucks from Transaction #2
$0.68 [with taxes]

If you'd like to see swatches of these colors, let me know :] Any good deals lately? Don't forget the Walgreens sale on the Revlon Top Speed nail polishes for 99 cents, see drug store deals for this week here.
