More Makeup Bargains from Discount Drug Mart

I had to return an item to Discount Drug Mart, so I decided to stick around and scavenge the makeup aisles for clearance finds, especially since I scored such great bargains last time.

Here are my latest makeup bargain finds.

Clearance makeup bargain finds at Discount Drug Mart beauty products

  1. Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish (205 Petal Plush) – Marked down to $.89 from $2.79 (68% off), a shimmery rose-hued mauve that looked like a color my mom would wear – so I got it for her.
  2. Physicians Formula Nude Wear Glowing Nude Bronzer (Bronzer 6237) – Marked down to $6.49 from $13.99, but it only rang up for $3.37 (76% off) so I seriously contemplated running back to grab another one. With four shimmery shades of bronzer lettered in gold glitter, this quad promises “a complexion-boosting lit-from-within glow for a fresh and beautiful bare skin effect.” This cute little bowed package is actually the first bronzing kit I’ve ever bought, so I’ll have to learn how to use it!
  3. Physicians Formula Matchmaker pH Powered Lip Gloss (Light Pink 7598) – Marked down to $2.37 from $8.99 (74% off), supposedly “reacts to light and your pH for your perfect lip color.” A fluorescein based dye senses the pH level of your skin, while photochromic powders adjust to the light around you. There’s even an LED-powered applicator, which makes this the most high-tech lip gloss I’ve ever seen.
  4. Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick (065 Catwalk) – Marked down to $2.12 from $8.29 (about 74% off). In an orange-tinged brick red color, this line comes with outstanding reviews of long-lasting durability.

  5. Wet n Wild Coloricon Shimmer Eye Pencil (154 Black Noir) – Marked down to $.49 from $.99 (half off) the basic black eyeliner gets dressed up with flecks of silver glitter. This reminded me of the Almay Intense i-color Defining Liner my sister put in my Christmas stocking, which was a charcoal flecked with sparkle that I totally adore. I thought it would make a nice addition to my mom’s little makeup gift.
  6. Wet n Wild Wild Shine Nail Color (405 Sunny Side Up) – Marked down to $.49 from $.99, a vivid tangerine orange nail polish, because I need to show my manicured team spirit when I tailgate for the Cleveland Browns.

  7. Bonne Bell Eye Style Shadow Box (614 Hip Hop Charcoals) – Marked down to $1.64 from $3.29 (half off), a quad of icy white, shimmery silver, taupe and glittery dark charcoal eye shadows with two tiny applicators – from a company headquartered in the town next to me: Westlake, Ohio.

  8. e.l.f. Dual Pencil Sharpeners – Retailing at $0.99, this set combines a covered double-sharpener and a smaller bonus sharpener to bring makeup pencils, both thick and thin, to a perfect point.
  9. Maybelline New York EyeStudio (15 Downtown Denim) – Marked down to $3.14 from $6.29 (half off), this eye shadow duo pairs a shimmery purple with a powder blue swirled with gold.
  10. Milani Quick Dry Top Coat (203 clear) – Marked down to $1.74 from $3.49 (half off), this is what prompted my makeup gift ideas for my mom. While we were painting our nails together over Christmas, she misplaced her clear top coat and hadn’t been able to find it. For less than two bucks, I figured I could send her a temporary replacement. But what fun is it to get clear nail polish in the mail, when you can also get a new color of polish and new eyeliner to go with it?

So for a grand total of $17.24, I came away with all of this: 6 shades of eye shadow, 3 shades of nail polish, 2 lip glosses, eyeliner, bronzer and 3 pencil sharpeners. I fared even better than last time, nabbing more items for a slightly lower total. And, almost half of the items became gifts that made other people happy without cluttering my makeup basket, so that’s definitely a win-win.

Best Buy: Wet n Wild tie – Coloricon Eye Pencil and Wild Shine Nail Color, $0.49 each
Best Value: 76% off of Physicians Formula bronzer (a nice surprise at the checkout!)
Favorite Find: pH Powered Lip Gloss, because I’ve never seen anything like it before.
