Clearance Sales Haul!

**all items purchased by me

Time for another haul!  The stores that I went to had some good things in their respective clearance bins this time so I thought it would be a good time to get some products that I haven't tried before.  Why pay full price for something you're not sure about when you can try it for clearance prices?  This haul happened at the beginning of the month, but always check clearance spots - you never know what you may find.

So first off, I went to Rite Aid - no newly released products interested me there, but the clearance bin did. 
Maybelline Dream Bouncy Bronzer in 80 Glistening Sun (2012 Summer Glow collection)
Essie nail polish in No More Film (2012 Resort collection)
Both on clearance!  I paid a little over $8 total after tax

I've decided to finally give the Dream Bounce blush/bronzer thing a try, but since I wasn't sure how much I would like it I went for a clearance item so it's not that much if I don't like it.

I went to another Rite Aid and almost the same story.  I saw the Maybelline limited edition collection (and thanks to Nouveau Cheap's blog review) I got my first Vivid.  And I found another polish on clearance.
Maybelline Vivids in 975 Pop of Cherry (Spring 2013 Color Goes Electric collection)
Essie nail polish in 416 Berry Naughty
The Essie was on clearance so I paid a bit over $10 total after tax. 

As I mentioned toward the beginning of the post, this is my first Maybelline Vivid that I'll be trying.  Can't wait to see how it feels on and how long it lasts...mmm, as soon as my lip stops being chapped.

And I had to go to the grocery store, so I thought I'd be "smart" and not go to Walmart.  Guess what? There was a box with clearance makeup at the grocery store!
 Maybelline the Falsies Flared mascara in 01 Very Black ($2)
Maybelline ColorSensational lipstick in 215 Totally Toffee ($1)
Maybelline Dream Bouncy blush in 10 Pink Frosting ($2)
L'Oreal Infallible shadow in 557 Glistening Garnet ($2)

Another Dream Bouncy product - even better price for just trying it out.  If I like them, I might get the coral looking shade at some point.  And I just had to get the Garnet Infallible at that price since I'm not sure how it will look on or if it will make my eyes look irritated.  I already know I really like the formula of the Infallibles.  I've also been wanting to try the Flared version of Maybelline Falsies so once I get through my current tube of mascara I might crack this one open - all though I really should use up some more older ones first...

I got 4 pieces of makeup for only an extra $7 on the grocery bill!  That's basically the cost of the L'Oreal Infallible (full-price) at Walmart.  I love how I can buy makeup there and the Mister not realize it since it doesn't show up on the statement as Rite Aid or Walgreens or CVS (which all 3 of those mean I've been beauty shopping) - this way it's sneaky. :-)

Do you ever buy makeup from the "real" grocery store?  Have any good clearance scores lately?
