SMonday Shopper - 1/17 through 1/23

Late again, dammit!  This week's Shopper (maybe I should just call it Shopper and stop caring when I post it) is a mix of Sally Hansen and Bonita, with a dash of Kmart clearance stuff, and a strong suspicion.  Sally Hansen is doing something somewhat confusing, but I think I've cracked their code.  More on that in a moment.  Sales first.  This is a great week for Wet n Wild...

The HOT Sales:

CVS - $5 ExtraBucks when you spend $15 on Sally Hansen naile.l.f., or Maybelline. $4 ExtraBucks when you spend $10 on Milani. 25% off Wet n Wild.

Rite Aid - 40% off Wet n Wild mascara and nail.

Walgreens - $1 off Wet n Wild priced $2.99 or more. $2 off Sally Hansen Miracle Gel, plus get 1000 points when you buy 2. From 1/17 through 1/19, get 5000 points when you spend $30 or more.

New Stuff:

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel - new shades (CVS)

Sinful Colors Love Bombs

 purchased by me 

Something on this blog is actually...early?  Shocking, I know.  Love Bombs is the new shade in Sinful Colors' Love Bites Valentine's collection, so I'm a whole damn month ahead of the holiday.  Wow!  It's also kinda the only thing I have ready for a quick post right now.  I'll probably put up a post of the rest of my picks from this collection (and Love Bombs over a dark color) in a week or two.  For now, let's look at this glitter blend over a sheer nude...

Love Bombs has pink and silver glitter, fine blue shimmer, and a scattering of blue hearts in a clear base.

This is how you do shape glitter if you don't want to pack a polish with it.  Star Studded from last year's holiday collection (never made it onto the blog, but see it on IG) had a similar complexity.  Love Bombs doesn't have nearly as many hearts as Star Studded has stars.  I really had to work to get that single one out...but I'm ok with that.  Shape glitter toppers can very easily become overkill.  The shimmer and variety of other glitter keeps Love Bombs from feeling skimpy or boring.  Application was easy too.

Bottom line: Lots of laying potential.  Plenty of visual interest.  Not all that many hearts.

Have you seen this Valentine's Day display at Rite Aid, Walgreens, or Target yet?  I bought this bottle at Wegmans, and haven't seen it anywhere else so far.

Sunday Shopper - 1/10 through 1/16

Ok, so it's Monday.  This post was already late, then I found even more stuff.  Little bit of everything today...some Valentine's, some early spring, and some new core stuff.  January is THE time for new products, core overhauls, etc, and I'm sure there are even more things on the way before the month is over.  This has turned into a pretty large post, so let's get on with it...

The HOT Sales:

CVS - $3 EB when you buy 2 Wet n Wild Wonder Gels.  $3 EB when you buy $8 of Rimmel.
Rite Aid - The usual.
Walgreens - Nothing of note.

New Stuff:

Sinful Colors Love Bites (Wegmans)

Shade names:
Feeling Great * Sail La Vie * Pink Smart * GoGo Girl * Tempest * (top coat) * Love Bombs

Starting 2016 Fresh

 purchased by me 

Happy New-ish Year!  I'm still getting back into the swing of things after the whole car accident thing, but I actually felt like blogging today.  Yay!  Speaking of yay...I have a new car!  Brand new!  Six years until it's really mine, but still.  Yay!  My car isn't the only thing that's new.  There's also this...
