CVS Clearance Sale Haul!


I've been wanting to get this post up, but I didn't really feel like editing the pictures.  But today I made myself do it.  So...thanks to reading about the semi-annual clearance sale at CVS on Nouveau Cheap's blog, I took a little drive and went to a couple of CVS locations.  I went before the sale "actually" started, but thanks to the list, I was able to get some of the things I've been wanting and just hadn't picked up yet, as well as some other stuff.  This post is featuring 3 different transactions from a couple different days.  Everything I bought was on clearance - either 50% off or 75% off.

So, what did I get at my first stop?  Let's see:
Milani Lip Flash Jumbo Pencils in (left to right): 
05 Hot Flash, 01 Lip Flash, 07 In A Flash, 08 Star Flash, 06 Flashy, 
04 Photo Flash, 03 Flash Light, and 02 News Flash

I'm always on the search for lip products that will show up on my well-pigmented lips, so after a quick search while I was in the store, I decided to buy 1 of each from the entire line.  I did try one already, but the next day my lip was all chapped so I'm not sure if it's just the colder weather taking it's toll on my lips or if it was something about the product.  I haven't revisited it yet to see.
 Milani Nail Lacquer 3D Holographic polishes in (top down):
513 Digital, 509 HD and 514 Hi-Res
 510 3D and 511 Hi-Tech

The Milani Holographic polishes were all on my "wanted list" for quite a while so I'm happy that I managed to get them all (except the blue one which I already had) on sale!

I went to another CVS the same day and that location was already working on getting the stickers on the products:
 Maybelline ColorSensational lipstick in 805 Pink Freeze
Physicians' Formula Cashmere Wear Ultra-Smoothing Blush in 
Rose 7549 and Natural 7548
Physicians' Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Lipstick in I <3 Rose

I've already used one of the blushes and I really love the way it goes on!

And then about a week later, I went back to the first CVS I visited to see what was stickered:
Rimmel Moisture Renew glosses in (left to right): 
245 Berry Bliss, 355 Purple Rescue and 125 Mauve Renew
Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick in 04

All of the Rimmel Moisture Renew Glosses were on sale, but I restricted myself to the 3 that looked the most pigmented/would show up on naturally well-pigmented lips.  And I really like the formula on the Rimmel by Kate lipsticks so I got what was on clearance (at least at that location).

And that's it for my Winter 2012 CVS Clearance haul.  I haven't been back to see if anything's been added - and it does seem like some of the items on Nouveau Cheap's master list do vary by location.  I was hoping to score more Revlon Lip Butters and Kissable Balm Stains on clearance (according to the list) but they weren't on sale where I went.  

Have you had any luck at the CVS clearance sale (if you have a CVS near/somewhat near to you?  What did you get?
