Thrifty Thursday

Posted on: November 3, 2011

Hello makeup lovers.  Today’s Thrifty Thursday is going to be pretty short.  I haven’t found much in the way of deals lately.  Also, I started physical therapy for an ankle sprain this week and I’m dying from it.  Ok, not literally dying, but it hurts pretty bad.  It is taking all my energy to stay awake at work (good thing my boss doesn’t follow my blog!).  So I apologize for this not so great Thrifty Thursday.  I hope you all stick it out with me and keep following my blog!  Anyway, here we go.

As always, e.l.f. is having a couple of sales.  Right now, you can get 40% off their “holiday faves”.  They are also still running free shipping on $25 or more (can’t be combined).  They just introduced all their holiday things and they look pretty inexpensive.  You can get a 100 piece classic eyes holiday palette for $10.  They also have a new “24K” line which looks kind of cool.  Also, through 11/9, you can get 40% off brushes.  Makeup brushes are sooo worth the money.  It’s so much better applying makeup with a brush rather than a wedge or the little sponges that come with your eye shadows.  Just make sure you purchase a brush cleaner and clean them EVERY TIME you use them.  You don’t want old caked up makeup products going around your eyes.

Smashbox has a few things on their sale page right now.  You also get free shipping and a free deluxe sample with every order.  AND until 5:00 today, you get double pretty points.  If you rack up 500 pretty points ($50 if you order before 5:00 and get double points) they’ll give you a $10 credit.

Stila has a bunch of sets and collections on their site.  The prices are pretty good as they are gearing up for Christmas sales.  You also get free shipping with a $50 order.

Pretty much all the makeup at CVS is buy one get one 50% off.  If you order online, you can get an extra 25% off.  I actually really like brands like Covergirl and Maybelline.  A lot of makeup snobs think drug store makeup isn’t good, but I have been a Covergirl fan since I started wearing makeup in middle school and as you all know, my favorite mascara of all time is Maybelline Falsies..

Walgreens has most of their makeup on sale buy one get one 50% off.  Covergirl foundation, powder, blush and lip cosmetics are buy one get one 25% off.  Not sure why.  If Walgreens is more convenient for you, that might be a good deal.

Make sure you have and use your little key chain cards anywhere you go.  My key chain is FULL of them.  Martin’s, Food Lion, Kroger, CVS, Walgreens.  You really get things on sale with your card.  Otherwise you’ll end up paying full price and it could cost a lot more than you think.

Also, I talked about Listia already, but check it out.  I haven’t won any bids yet, but if you get enough credit and win a bid, you could get free stuff.  And its everything, not just makeup.  Be sure to use my link here and then share your personal link with your friends.  We can all get credit and get free stuff.  Also, if you have things lying around the house that you don’t use, you can list them and earn credit for yourself by getting rid of your stuff.

Ok, here is your none makeup related deal for this week.  It’s a blog post sharing a code for 40 free prints from Walgreens.  If you’re like me, you have a ton of great pictures on your computer or even still on your camera but don’t want to pay the money to get them printed.  Well, here’s 40 free prints just in time for holiday gifts or for yourself!

So there you go.  Sorry its kind of short.  I will get back on track soon!  Make sure you check out the “Introduce Yourself” tab on the home page and leave a note about yourself.  Also, let me know what you’d like to see on the blog.  Hope you enjoy!
