Fall & After-Halloween Clearance Sales Haul!

**all items purchased by me

In an effort to really start catching up, I'm doing a second haul post today.  This time, it's Fall and Halloween clearance sales at various Rite Aids and Walmarts...and I'm throwing in one product I bought from KMart.

Let's get started with the oldest items, which are from what I'm calling the Fall Rite Aid Clearance sales.  At one Rite Aid, I found Kate Moss Matte lipsticks by Rimmel on clearance for $2.79 each...I also had 3 $1 off Rimmel coupons so I paid just under $5.40 for all 3.  I did do swatches of the lipsticks (I believe just one pass each):
The second Rite Aid, I was all about the eyes.  I had actually played with the rare drugstore tester when these first came out:
Total Intensity by Prestige eye shadow singles - originally $8.50, clearance $2.12
Spellbound, Obsession, Black Magic, Addiction, Crave (only one I wasn't able to score from the original display is Hocus Pocus).  A couple of these have loose pans, but nothing a dot of glue/rubber cement won't take care of.
~if you'd like to see swatches of these, just let me know!~~

And now for the 3rd Rite Aid, which was all about the nails.  I ended up coming across the rest of the Vintage Leather collection on clearance for $1.99 each (click here for swatches of the original 6 I bought):
Vintage Leather polishes in Sage Staple, High Style Sienna, Red Relic, Ageless Olive
~~I did swatch these, but didn't take pictures - if you'd like to see them, just let me know!!~~

Now my next little clearance find was all by itself at KMart back around when I found the Wet 'n Wild holiday collection in October:
Rimmel Kate Moss line in #09

And finally, Halloween clearance.  I visited 2 different Rite Aids and 2 different Walmarts.  (I did go see what was on clearance from Walgreens, but there wasn't any beauty related goodies on sale).  First up, Rite Aid:
~From the first Rite Aid, I got 3 of the Kiss imPRESS press-on manicures (although I did have to have the cashier to adjust the price since for some reason they weren't coming up automatically 50% off) and I got the Sorceress eye lashes from Fright Night.  The Kiss nails ended up being $3.99 each; lashes were $1.99.
~From the second Rite Aid (picture on right), I just found the other pattern of Kiss imPRESS press-on manicures that I had liked from the original display.  I ended up purchasing 4 of the 6 designs (skipped the candy-corn background one as well as the blood-splattered ones).

And from Walmart, I got some wigs and hair clip-ins for bangs.  Again, I went to 2 different Walmarts.
I bought the black wig and 4 clip-in bangs at one Walmart, while the blue/black wig and headband from a 2nd location

Clearly, I found quite a bit of goodies both before and after Halloween all on clearance.  Some items, depending on how badly I want, I will jump on and purchase right away.  But if something only partially caught my eye (not enough to purchase full price though) and I spy it on clearance, then I'm much more likely to indulge and increase my massive beauty and polish stash.

Are clearance sales/bins your shopping weakness like me?  Have you found anything good on clearance lately?
