Free Target Beauty Sample Bag Arrived!

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

 Maybe about three weeks back, Target had a sign up on their website for a free beauty bag full of beauty goodies. Why did that box arrived today?!? That was fast! It normally takes weeks and weeks to recieve that free stuff...
 All the beauty goodies and coupons came in a Sonia Kashuk designed makeup bag....

Here's what I got:

$25 in coupons book- Mainly mainstream brands like Cover Girl, Revlon, Olay.... Best coupons so far are two Nivea coupons, one for $1 off a skin product and one for $3 off a skin product which look like it can be doubled.

Fekkai Shea Butter Shampoo and Conditioner samples

Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in Hot Pink card sample

Nivea Express Hydration sample ( I like this already)

Pantene Curly Hair Series Shampoo sample

Neutrogena Naturals Lip Balm

Have you received yours? What do you think of it?

Old School: Caboodles Nail Paint....

 While grocery shopping at a local grocery store called "Jimmy's Fresh Air Galaxy", I spotted a table of 5 for $1 makeup goodies that included some Caboodles makeup and these Nail Paints they used to sell.

Do you remember Caboodles Makeup Line? I do. It was cute and it had lots of sparkly stuff, powders and body gels. So, I dating these stuff back to at least, the early 2000s.
 Some of the polish had name stickers and some did not. But each formula was in great shape, smooth consistency, no thickness, or chunkyness. I remember owning a couple of these but I dont remember the colors I had.

I'm completely obsessed with beauty products but WAAYYYY more obsessed with discontinued products...oh and polish. lol! I'm surprised I haven't seen any polish heads NOTD this. Plus, I just searched and saw on Ebay someone selling these $10 a pop! What??!?!

NARS Jungle Red Lipstick vs.Revlon Fire & Ice....

 When I got NARS Jungle Red in a set for $15 along with the Jungle Red polish and Jungle Red lip liner( which I've lost ALREADY), I thought it looked familiar. Then, I pull out my LE Revlon Fire & Ice Lipstick for comparison
 Jungle Red on the left and Fire & Ice on the right....

Jungle Red look more red where as F&I looks pinker, right?
 But swatched side by side that look the same! The formulas are wayyy differenet. Jungle Red is a matte cream and Fire &Ice is creamy and slightly glossy. If you can still find Fire & Ice( I think its in a different casing, its black, in drugstores or click HERE), its a great alternate for Jungle Red.
