L'OREAL: Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara

I purchased this mascara about two months ago from Rite Aid and Target and I have been using it ever since. I have to say, it's definitely one of my favorites among all mascaras I've tried and the best mascara I've tried for lengthening.

I have been using both the waterproof and regular formula to see if I could notice a difference. The waterproof mascara is definitely a drier formula but they both work well at lengthening the lashes. I didn't notice any flaking and as for the waterproof claim, I don't wear mascara under water but both formulas have not run down my face or anything like that. Between the two, there really isn't much of a difference except for the fact that one is a bit drier. They both are very black and I find that both hold a curl for about the same amount of time.

L'OREAL: Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain

I finally got around to trying the notorious dupe for the YSL Glossy Stains that I have been hearing about for months now! I don't own any YSL Glossy Stains and the most I have had in contact with them is swatching them on my hand a long time ago at Sephora, so I'll have to take everyone's word for it. What did intrigue me though, was the fact that a lip product that costs $10 rivals a high end product going for $34! (I mean let's face it, those are always the best finds!)

I remembered seeing these when they first came out and thought the packaging was really nice, the applicator looked interesting, and there was a nice selection of pinks (my fave!). Months went by and I never purchased them because I just thought they were a lip gloss...nothing special and I have so many already, I don't need anymore.

Then a coupon popped up in my email I think, $2 off a L'OREAL lip product. So I did what any responsible shopper would do. I bought something I didn't need, and told myself the coupon justifies the purchase. Right?! No?! Whatever.

So I picked up Pink Rebellion which from the package looked like a hot magenta color. Totally right up my alley. I have to admit though, I was not a big fan that these do not come sealed...who knows what people do with them or where their hands have been. Hello, germ fest! Anyways, I picked the one that looked the least tampered with and I'm happy to report no herpes...yet.

Cheap Thrills: Rite Aid Deals!

Rite Aid has some awesome deals on beauty items right now, I just had to share! I'm sure it depends on your area, but I find Rite Aid in general is better priced than CVS and Walgreens on identical items to begin with. On top of that, if you visit their video values site: Rite Aid Video Values (totally free btw), you can score some additional coupons on items you were already going to purchase. I always check this site before going to Rite Aid and this time there were some great coupons! Basically when you visit the site, you can browse what items are currently being offered a coupon. You select which one you want, watch a short video (most are 30 sec. to a min.), enter a captcha code when the video is over, and boom...savings! You do have to print the coupons but they will all print on the same page so you aren't wasting paper. Another thing, and this goes for all drugstores, sign up for their free member cards. It's FREE and it gives you their weekly discounts plus emailed coupons.

Ok, now on to the awesome finds for this week!
