Great Makeup Find

I am a huge Clinique fan- they have great makeup, and it wears well. But Clinique can be pricey- $20+ for foundation alone. And they have this gorgeous shimmery blush that I wanted to try but wouldn't pay the $21 for.
Last week at CVS they had Covergirl on sale, and I had a coupon for buy one get one free, so I took a chance and bought Covergirl Trublend foundation and Trublend shimmery blush (pictured at right) as well as an eyeshadow for under $4 total (regular prices totaled $18 for all). I tried them all and LOVE them. The foundation wears as well as Clinique and even matches my skin better. The shimmery blush looks natural as well! I paid 10% of the price, and saved $38 or more. If you are looking for a good substitute for department store makeup, I would check out Covergirl Trublend.

  1. Thanks for the recommendation! I've had some success with the L'Oreal True Match foundation, but I miss my custom blend Prescriptives--way too expensive since I became a frugal mama! I'll check out that blush; the L'Oreal I tried just rubbed right off when I tried to blend it. Thanks!

  2. Great tip! I'll have to try it out.

    By the way, if you have an Ulta make-up store near you, consider buying there. Their prices are drug-store low and they have a good selection. Best of all, you can return any make-up (used!) you've bought there for ANY reason, as long as 85% of the product remains. (Bring the receipt, too.) Happy make-up shopping!

  3. I have heard of them before, I will look them up. That return policy would be so great, because you just never know what color makeup will be until you try it on. Thanks for the tip!


Thank you so much for leaving a comment! I love hearing from you!
