Drug Store Deals of the Week 12/14-12/20

It's that time, again, where I scout out the best drug store makeup deals of the week. Also, make sure to check out my last week's Drug of the week (link here) because there are still many AMAZING products at CVS that are 50% and 75% off. Now, let's get onto the DEALS.


There isn't much from CVS this week, but here are three.
  • Buy one get 50% off for ALL NYX COSMETICS!!! I'm actually really excited for this deal. NYX has a very affordable line already. My favorite product is the Soft Matte Lips because when it sets on your lips, it doesn't transfer onto anywhere. 
  • MUA (Make up Academy) is have a 25% off. Plus if you spend $40, you'll get $10 in extra bucks. Well, I do not know too much about this company. But you do know, let me know what I should try. 
  • Physicians Formula is having a 40% off for everything. 
Extra bucks are like coupons, which can be used toward anything at CVS. 

Rite Aid

This week, Rite Aid has the best deals. That's why I'm saving these for last.
  • Covergirl is having a 25% off everything in their cosmetics department. When you spend $10 and up, you'll get $2 back in Up rewards. My favorite waterproof mascara is from Covergirl.
  • 40% off for all Wet-n-Wild Cosmetics. Spend $10 and get an extra $3 of Up Rewards. GREAT DEAL. Everything from Wet-N-Wild is already really inexpensive. If you are a procrastinator and don't have anything to get for your friends for Christmas, you can get them like 3-4 items and spend about $10-$15 for each friend. This will depend what you buy. 
  • Spend $10 on any Artificial Nails and Lashes, you'll receive $3 in Up rewards. 
  • Last by not least, Physicians Formula is having a BUY ONE GET ONE FREE!!!! However, this is for ONLY for their concealers and glamour eye products. But still, it's a pretty good deal that you are looking at. 
Up rewards are like money, They can be used towards anything at Rite Aid. 

That's all for now. Happy Holidays. 
Make up to check out my youtube channel @shesayswhoosh. I just started making videos. It's a bit tough with the editing and filming but I know I will continue to get better.

My "No Makeup Makeup" Look

Hello Loves!

How's it going? My work as been cancelled so many times this week because it's raining SO much in the Bay Area. Currently, there is a massive storm going on. 1/4 of my house is out of power. With all my time in the world, I decided to make another video on YouTube. This time, I spent more time editing, filming, and learning the Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 program. It was difficult as first but I'm continuing to excel on my skills. In time, I know I'll be "close" to pro (in my dreams).

In college, I've used imovie from apple, however, I don't have an apple computer anymore. So I'm fortunate to use this program, which my brother gave because the editing functions are endless, yet a bit difficult.

Here's my next video. I spent more time editing and learning through YouTube. Isn't it funny how we live in an age where we can learn about EVERYTHING (well, almost everything) through YOUTUBE? For example, I just learned how to switch on fuses to my house because of YouTube. I could get a YouTube University Bachelor of Arts or Science. I kid. But seriously though.

Here you go!

That's all for now! Enjoy!

Drug Store Deals of the Week

It's that time of the week again, where drug stores come out with their sales of the week and I tell you the BEST of the BEST Deals. Let's get to the chase.


  • Relvon is having a 40% off sale for all of its cosmetics. This is a great opportunity to try out their lip line, especially from their Colorburst lip collection. Also, use your CVS card to see if you get a $4 off $10 Relvon cosmetics or Relvon Beauty Tools coupon at the red coupon machine. You'll save even more. 
  • Buy one get 50% off for Milani cosmetics. Usually this company hardly has sales, so this is a good chance to get some of their good liquid eye liners. I've never tried anything of their products. Maybe if I score a good deal, I'll give it a try. 
  • During this time of year, CVS tries to clear out their products by having a 50% off and 75% off on selective items. Here are some pictures. The pink sticker is 50% off from original price and the green sticker is 75% off. 
Almay's concealers

Relvon's Lip Glosses for 50% off. Plus use the CVS coupon from the Red Coupon Machine.  

Relvon's Eye shadows

L'oreal's infallible lip products are really intense. 50% off. yay!

Physicans Formula's mascara for 75% off! Original price $9.99

Some of the Nicole's OPI polishes on sale. 

Sally Hansen's Nail Polishes from the line Triple Shine is 75% off. What a good sale. 

And I bought: 
Including tax, I spent $20.66. If I had coupons, my savings would be higher. 
I like to mention that these are a good Christmas presents for friends. 

Rite Aid

  • NYC cosmetics is having a 50% off sale for everything in their line. I believe this sale will end "while supply last". 

That's all for now.

November Favorites 2014

Alright, November Favorites! But first, oh my goodness, it's already December? Seriously, why does it feel like time is passing by faster and faster each year. I hope everyone had a GREAT Thanksgiving and hope everyone enjoyed all the crazy Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. 

Okay! Let's start from left to right

Bare Escentuals Buxom Full on Lipstick Rouge A Levres: This is in the color "San Francisco"

I remember I bought this in the beginning of the year. I left this in my makeup storage, but I recently rediscovered it. I love this lipstick because it's very pigmented, it suits my skin tone, and it's sort of have a matte finish. There is a minty feeling to make your lips feel plumed to make it look fuller and bigger. 

Maybelline's Dream Wonder Fluid-Touch Foundation: I bought this a week ago from the Rite Aid's 40% off Maybelline Sale and it's already my favorite! I remember using Revlon's Color Stay many years ago because a lot of YouTubers really liked it. However, it felt powdery and overly cakey to me. This one, on the other hands, I love how it is so soft and smooth. The finish is beautiful.  It's a medium to full coverage (in my opinion) founation. I'm in the 85 Sun Beige. Plus, it has SPF 20! I was really happy when I got it for $2.50.

Lancome's Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover: This is an oldie but always a goody. I've been using this for 4 years now. Because I have stubborn "straight-down-eyelashes", waterproof mascara is a HUGE must for me. This makeup remover literally melts off all the products on my lashes. 

Fresh's Seaberry Moisturizing Oil: During winter, my skin tends to get dry. This oil was able to help me with all the dry patches on my nose. At first, I didn't like the "natural" smell but I grew to like it. 

Maybelline's Dream Wonder Powder: This is in the color 85 Sun Beige also. I've seen many makeup YouTubers use this product but I didn't get the chance to purchase this product until it was on sale plus I had a $2 off coupon. It costed about $4.50. I like how there is a matte, soft, and smooth finish. It helps with my combination skin, especially when I'm oily in my T-zone. 

I hope you enjoyed my 2014 November Favorites. Tell me what was your favorite products last month. 

That's all for now!
