Buying things I shouldn't (in drugstore clearance sales)

Okay, I'm going to get back on schedule around here for real this time. I was swamped for a couple of weeks with a graduation (mine - you can call me Dr. Cheap now) and a wedding (not mine) in Canada, but now I have nothing to do but sit at home putting on makeup and being unemployed. That should mean more blogging for a while.

This is a short one. Just thought I'd show you what I got for about $6 at Walgreens today:



  • e.l.f. Shimmering Facial Whip in Lilac Petal
  • e.l.f. Luscious Liquid Lipstick in Pink Lemonade
  • Milani Baked Blush in Corallina

All of these things were 50% off. Not a huge deal for the e.l.f. shit, since you can get it for that price regularly on their website, but I thought what the hell. I want to compare that Shimmering Facial Whip to Benefit High Beam, since it's supposed to be a dupe. I like the other Liquid Lipstick I have, so we'll see about this one. The Milani blush is a little more exciting. I've heard good things about this one, and $4+ isn't bad.

You can find very useful info about the Walgreens and CVS clearance sales on Nouveau Cheap. I went to CVS too, but didn't find much there except for some of the scented Revlon polishes for about $2.50. But no more nail polish for me. None!

  1. Congratulations! Welcome to the world of unemployment. It ain't fun here. If only nail polish could feed us.

    I love Corallina. You just have to accept that it's a glittery ho and love it for what it is.

    1. Thanks! I have enough money saved to keep me going for a few months, but someone better hire me before that runs out, dammit.

      I tried Corallina last night and found it really flattering. But it definitely needs a light touch! I'm cool with the glitter in this case.

  2. Congratulations Dr. Cheap! I forgive your long absence from blogging (I check your blog daily) since you were, you know, getting a PhD. Glad you're back!

  4. Congrats Dr. Cheap! I still have four years left to get my ph.d. Needless to say I have been halfway employed for the last 14 years studying to be a psychologist! In my next life time I am gonna be a plumber by day and beauty blogger by night!

    Did you like the Milani blush? I dont know where to get that shit in Canada!!!!

    1. Thanks! That sounds like a good career plan. I do like the blush. It's flattering. You have to accept a lot of glitter, but it's not too obnoxious. I think Liz (above) has found it at Loblaw's/Superstore.

  5. That e.l.f. Shimmering Facial Whip is the bomb diggity. Love it! Stumbled upon your blog while looking for reviews for Jordana's Best Lash Extreme. :-)
