Red Hot Deals!

Monday, January 31, 2011
Good Evening, Readers!
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.
Indoors, no flash, lightbox

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.
Indoors, flash under lightbox. 1x Essie First Base, 2x Red Hot Tamale
and 1x SpaRitual Base and Top Coat
Red Hot Tamale polish is just what it sounds like, a screamin' red creme. It covered nicely in just two coats. It's a light enough red where it doesn't look bloody or stark against pale skin, just a very warm and inviting shade.
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!
