It's always a good news/bad news situation when you find your favorite beauty products at Big Lots. It's great to see those items at such a low price, but at the same time, you know they're at Big Lots for a reason... they've been phased out of the brand's regular line, and that's why they're in sale mode. On Saturday, I got a tweet from Beauty Broadcast viewer @LindsayGoodrdge about some great things she found at Big Lots...
Thanks for the heads up, Lindsay! Since I was heading out that night to pick up a few things, I figured I'd swing by Big Lots to see what kinds of beauty products were lurking in the aisles. You really need to stop in to Big Lots periodically, because you never know what you'll find.
I also was able to find the Revlon PhotoReady bronzer! WHY would Revlon discontinue this fabulous product?! Maybe they'll just repackage & re-release it. Who knows! What's important is that this bronzer is normally $12 to $13, and it's selling for $3.50 at Big Lots! This was my Emily Award Winner this year for best drugstore bronzer. It combines 4 tones, is entirely matte, and it's great for contouring. Snatch it up!
I also spotted lots of ELF Mechanical Eyelash curlers! This is my favorite kind of lash curler, and while I've been able to find these for $1 at Target (with white handles), some people have told me that their Target stores no longer have them. ELF's website isn't selling them either. So I made sure to pick up an extra. The 5-cent discount isn't huge, but I think it's still a major steal for such a great lash curler.
This is an INSANE deal! I didn't buy one of these since I already have these products, but if you missed out on the Wet n Wild 6-pan palettes-- now is your chance! The palettes in Lust and Greed have been re-packaged along with a couple of liners. I really wished Wet n Wild wouldn't have let these palettes go-- they have the same fabulous pigmentation you would expect from Wet n Wild, and each palette is half matte, half shimmer. And it's only $3.50?!?!
Also at Big Lots- I got a bag of Valentine's Tootsie Pops -- ALL CHERRY. Score! Anyway, thanks to Lindsay for tweeting me about her Big Lots finds, and hopefully you can find these great deals and more at your local stores.
- Who else has been watching the Olympics? We had them on for most of the day yesterday. I love watching the figure skating (I used to pretend I was an Olympic figure skater when I was a child- only I was in my roller skates, skating circles in the garage, and my song was Billy Joel's River of Dreams.)
- I made crock pot Chicken & Dumplins yesterday! DELISH. I use this recipe, and also add frozen corn, peas, and carrots.
- In case you were wondering about Cupcake's whereabouts, she's on the top shelf of my closet right now.
- You know what sounds good at the moment? Some sort of slush or frozen lemonade type thing. Or an Orange Julius.
