CVS Collective Haul!

**all items purchased by me

I'm still here, promise.  Tonight's the first opportunity I've had to really sit down in front of the computer and do anything for the blog in about a week.  I'm feeling like in real life everything is happening and/or needs taken care of all at the same time so sadly my computer time gets pushed to the end of the list.  Hopefully things will be calming down so I can try to get back to my "me" time for my own blogging and reading blogs/watching videos that I'm subscribed to.

Anyway, in an effort to attempt to get back on schedule, I thought I'd share a little collective CVS haul.  I haven't bought much from there this year, but I've bought a few things.

So back around the end of January, Milani was on sale (buy one get one 50%), plus I had a couple of CVS coupons so I got both of these for less than the price of one!
05 Luminoso and 08 Coralina (next picture is color accurate) Baked Powder Blushes

Then in the middle of February I had another CVS coupon so I got another amazing deal on this Rimmel ScandalEyes pencil - well under $1!
003 Bad Girl Bronze

And then in the beginning of March, I had a CVS coupon good on Nicole by OPI polishes, plus I had a manufacturer's coupon, so I got $3 off of this polish.
Sweet Daisy from the Carrie Underwood collection

Milani's Luminoso has rapidly become a favorite blush - it stayed out on top of my vanity until a couple weeks ago before I finally put it inside the drawer (didn't want Tomo the crazy kitten knocking it onto the floor while we were out of town since I made myself take a different blush to play with).  I've also had the Sweet Daisy polish on my nails for a couple of days didn't get any pictures before I got busy cleaning and it chipped) and really liked it, so I'll have to recreate that mani soon.  I am still planning on doing a post on all the shades (with swatches) I've purchased from the Carrie Underwood collection.  I still need to put the Rimmel ScandalEyes to the test.

Can you believe that's all that I've bought from CVS this year?!  Other things that I've wanted I've found at other stores that are a closer drive so I haven't felt the need to go searching for anything there.  I'm starting to think it's easier to cut back on spending if I just decide to cut out going to a certain store; in this case, CVS.  Maybe I should put store restrictions on myself each month - Bed, Bath & Beyond would be a good one to avoid for a while now (they've been on top of new/limited edition releases lately).  I do want to get a couple of Milani polishes that recently came out that are dupes to a couple of Finger Paints glitter polishes; I'll wait until Milani goes on sale again and/or I have a CVS coupon.

See anything you have already?  See anything you want to try?  What's your favorite Milani blush shade?
