Tonight's post is all about some fantastic savings I've stumbled upon lately. As you probably know, CVS is having a great beauty sale right now, 50-75% off of select items. I was there yesterday (actually, I had to use the restroom. How these products manged to get into my cart and check themselves out is beyond me) and got a few things, and noticed that they were all bright tomato red and they were all Revlon. Well in my defense, I really love this color, and Revlon is one of my favorite drugstore brands.
I bought a Revlon Colorburst lipstick in Coral, Revlon Super Lustrous gloss in Firecracker and a bottle of polish in Red Hot Tamale.

Coral lipstick isn't a true coral, it's really a red-orange without any pink tones. I love the Colorburst lipstick formulas- they're not at all drying and they glide on so easily. I think I'll wear it tomorrow for picture day.
Firecracker gloss is one I've been wanting for a while. It came out in 2010, as a part of the spring collection and I remember everyone on MUA freaking out, unsure if these shades were perm. I'm happy that I finally got it today. It's really quite orange and very sheer, like the color of the inside of a persimmon. I think it goes well on top of Coral lipstick, it warms it up even more.

and 1x SpaRitual Base and Top Coat
Altogether, I paid around $6 for these three lovely red items because they were each 75% off.
I would definitely advise you to head on over to a nearby CVS if anything catches your eye!
