Walgreens & Kohl's Haul!


Today I've got my first haul of the year to share! That didn't take long, did it?  I bought these items on the 1st.  Most of what I bought came from Walgreens, but I spent the most money at Kohl's.

I hadn't planned on going out at all, but then I came across a savings pass for Kohl's , and the Mister almost insisted that I go at least look around.  And I'm so happy I did!  I tried on some jeans in the never-ending quest to find a pair that is dark wash, boot cut and doesn't gap in the waist...and the very first pair I tried on fit perfectly!  And I do have to say, my rear looks amazing in these!  I was so happy that I bought both pairs that were in stock.  If you're curious, here's the link to the Vera Wang jeans I got.  The Mister definitely approves of the way these look when I showed him (said they look like designer jeans...which they are).   I also came across a pair of earrings that I liked:
Princess Vera Wang earrings

Since the Mister had received a gift card from a co-worker as a Christmas gift, I knew that between the savings pass, the sales on the merchandise and the gift card I would get a pretty awesome deal - as in all 3 items (plus tax) for less than the price of one pair of jeans full price.  Also while I was in Kohl's I took a little sniff around the fragrance department and picked out a couple that I want to get at some point (the Mister said I should have gotten them while I was there, but I didn't...).  I might go back and get the one set while it's on sale...haven't decided yet.  About now would be the perfect time for another savings pass to show up. lol

I do believe I'm turning into a Kohl's shopper - as long as there is a sale going on and/or I've got a savings pass for additional savings.

So now let's see what I picked up from Walgreens.  I stopped there because I knew that they had fragrance gift sets on sale for 50% off, so I thought maybe one or 2 of the perfumes I had liked at Kohl's would be there, but nope.  I did, however, get some other things that I'd had my eye on.
Sinful Colors polishes  - all creme finish
2 Rimmel by Kate matte lipsticks and a Maybelline ColorSensational lipstick
names are all below
 top down:
Ardoise 1037, Cool Gray 996, Beau Khaki 1034 and Mauve 1006
Cool Gray, Mauve, Ardoise, Beau Khaki
The above row are bottle shots I took while I was still in the store - 
Ardoise is more color accurate in the pictures from the store, but Cool Gray is slightly washed out and Beau Khaki is too green.  These 4 are very tricky to get accurate picture of.
These are from the newly released collection Haute Rebel - the other 4 shades are re-releases (I'll probably have a full collection post with them coming up soon)
Rimmel Lasting Finish 8HR Lipstick Matte by Kate in 104 (left) and 107 (right)
107 is the red that's shown on Kate Moss on the display picture
I really wish that these had actual names, rather than just numbers
Maybelline ColorSensational lipstick in 825 Fruit Punch
I used a $1 off coupon I had printed & it was about to expire

I can't wait to see how the Rimmel lipsticks wear.  If they aren't too drying, I'll probably end up getting some more - especially if I can get them on sale again...and I do want to get some of the other Kate lipsticks that came out in 2012 still (but I'll probably pick those up from Walmart since the price will be better there).  As for trying to restrain the shopping habit, I'm not off to a very good start, am I?  At least everything was on sale (which was one of my self-imposed rules from when I attempted a restricted buy last year)....and it just felt really strange typing "last year" when referring to 2012.

Have you tried Rimmel's new matte lipsticks?  Love them or not so much?  What's your favorite style and brand of jean to wear?  Are you going to attempt to buy less?
