Rite Aid New Product Haul - Physicians Formula!

Hi!
**all items purchased by me

I thought today I'd finally get my post up of the new Physicians' Formula products I bought during a couple of trips to Rite Aid at the beginning of the year.  The cashier at one Rite Aid gave me a hassle with one of my purchases because I peeled the little coupons off and it wasn't automatically accepting the coupons.  She didn't want to believe me that I had just peeled them off 2 minutes before and told me "don't peel them off again; the cashier is supposed to." That just sounds stupid to me.   Fortunately the manager was close by and knew why the coupons weren't registering properly and fixed it.  I haven't bought anything from that location other than prescriptions since - I'd rather drive a few extra minutes to where the customer service is much better/more pleasant and most importantly, non-accusatory.  Luckily I live in an area where there's about 4 different Rite Aid's all less than 15 minutes from the house so I can be picky on the locations I shop.

Anyway, let's see what I bought from all the new products since a lot hit the market around the same time.  This first trio of products actually came home with me just before the new year.  It took me a little while to get their pictures taken, and even longer to get them posted but 2 of the products I've been using almost exclusively since the middle of January.
  Each of these items had a $3 off coupon attached.
 Super CC+ Color-Correction + Care CC+ Cream in Light
Super CC+ Color-Correction + Care CC+ Powder in Light
Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Balm Compact Cream in Light
~I think this is a color expansion from what came out last year (light-medium)~

I got the blushes just after the start of the new year, and I believe they were on sale that week (30% off sounds about right)
Nude Wear Glowing Nude Blush in Rose and Natural

I haven't been able to get enough of the CC+ cream and powder.  The cream is just a touch too dark for me, but the powder seems to run light so combined it's pretty much my perfect shade.  I'm not sure how they'll wear in warmer weather or if/when my skin becomes more oily but as of right now they are upstaging all of my foundations.  One of these days I should open the BB compact cream to see what that's like.  Hopefully it will be a closer color match than the BB cream I bought from Physicians' Formula last year.  I really like the other blushes I have from the brand so I can't wait to open up these new blushes and start playing with them.  I just haven't yet because I wanted to get better pictures and swatches before using.

I know that there's several other P.F. products that all come out around the same time, but these are the ones that caught my eye as the ones I wanted.  Especially since that concealer (with the same bow as the Nude Wear blushes) only comes in one shade and I have a strong feeling that it's too dark for me.

Have you gotten any of the new Physicians' Formula products that hit the market recently?  Any that you have your eye on? Do bad cashier experiences turn you off from going to particular store locations when you have options to go elsewhere?
