The Revlon Mascara Craze

So everybody in the couponing groups are posting their Revlon mascara haul from Target, Walmart and CVS. I am sharing mine here too. I only printed ten coupons from smartsource and made sure to use them all today as they are only good for today.

I did try the first CVS store I went to this morning but failed. The cashier couldn’t accept more than one coupon because she thought they were copied coupons while they’re not. Revlon allowed me to print two copies each browser and I used two computers!

Gladly, the second CVS store store I went to accepted all four $5 manufacturer coupons, combined that with $4 off of $20 purchase Revlon products. Deal this week is buy one $8.79 get one 50% off, I paid out of pocket $2.76 including tax.

The six remaining coupons were used in Walmart, their current price is $5.97 so, ended up paying just 97 cents each mascara. Happy shopper here.

I know I can’t use them all as I still have old mascaras from how many months ago I don’t know… but my friends, cousins and relatives in the Philippines can use them.

How I Scored This Rollerbal Victoria’s Secret Eau de Parfum

Getting freebies at Victoria’s Secret isn’t hard at all. If you follow them on social media or belongs to an FB group that posts deals and promos from stores, you can score yourself cool freebies from VS or other fave stores. How I scored this rollerball VS eau de parfum in store last weekend just by voting for VS’ new scent online that’s been going on and took a screenshot of it, showed it to the cashier at the register and voila! No questions asked, she handed me this nice scent perfume that I could wear once in a while. With no purchase necessary, I got this thing at least worth $10.

This is not the first time I got a freebie from them. If you are following my blog, you would know that. Thanks to VS for they know how to keep their customers happy and keep coming back to their store.

My New Favorite Lippy and Mascara from Covergirl Queen Collection

Below line of products is from Covergirl #QUEENCOLLECTION. I received them free complimentary for testing purposes from #Influenster.

There are only four things I would use on my face when going out, these are my sunscreen facial moisturizer, age defying serum, lipstick and eye liner. I am a simple woman and I don’t need a lot of make up in order to feel and look good about myself because I believe wearing my natural beauty is easier and if I get complimented with it, I’d be more prouder of myself than being liked by many because of my heavy makeup. I don’t know about you ladies but there’s no offense meant here.

Now, since I have tried this Covergirl Queen Collection False Lash Drama Mascara, looks like it is going to be added to my fave essential to put on before heading out to do errands. I have two other mascaras from Maybelline and Covergirl professional collection but I don’t use them as much maybe because I don’t get good beautiful natural-looking lashes from them when applied. But this new collection I just tried applying on, I fell in love with it right away. The result is instant long black lashes as you can see in the pictures below.

Also, I got another thing from the same collection which is a Stay Luscious Lipstick which gives me an all-day moisture and truly a long lasting wear. It stayed in my lip yesterday all day even if I had eaten once wearing it. Another good thing about this lippy is, it’s a new oil-based emollient-rich formula which gives me moisture without me applying for lip moisturizer. This one great lippy here is already has it plus I love its color. Not to be biased here, I like it more than my MAC lippies. Many say that MAC lasts all day, I somehow having a hard time to believe that. I have used mine, two of them actually a lot of times already yet, I don’t see it lasted all day.

As for the liquid foundation, I don’t use any form of foundation on my face. I like it to be naked with foundation but anyway, I am gonna try it on one of these days and I bet I won’t be disappointed with the product. I will post an update here whether I like it or not.

If you follow this blog, you should have read the entry I wrote about how to get freebies from Victoria’s Secret. Here’s one of those freebies I just took advantage today at their store. Twelve full size bottles of mists and lotions plus a pair of undies for just under $5. How is that possible?

Well, it is very possible, just read on.

I have collected 6 secret reward cards in total throughout their giveaway days, 4 of which I got just by sending them stamps and envelopes in snail mail. 2 from shopping online and their store. Anyway, I bought these items pictured below because they are the cheapest I can see in their store right now, 2/$10. I used six secret reward cards worth $10 each and a free panty coupon that they sent me in the mail. Regular price of each bottle is $18.

$4.75 is the exact amount I paid today, that’s literally just taxes! All of these are just FREE!

You might be wondering what am I gonna do with all these? To answer your question, I am sending them all in a box to the Philippines for my family to enjoy or sell them there. I am one happy Victoria’s Secret shopper here!

I Want MAC Candies!

I never thought of buying expensive lippies for I don’t work in a retail or any kind of job that deals with people or customers. I do use lipstick, yes. But for running errands, going to the mall or going to little Filipino parties. Also, I know a bit of couponing and I know exactly the joy of being able to save on cosmetics including lippies through the use of a store and manufacturer coupons. So, I only use middle brands that cost less than ten bucks.

I have known this brand for so long but not until last month I got really curious of MAC, I heard people are saying how long-lasting their lippies are and how good their foundation and other products are. So I went on to their website as well as other big retailers and read some reviews. 99% have reviewed they loved MAC. I went on to lippy reviews, same thing. So that somehow urged me to try to get two for myself for a start and see if the reviews are true.

Since I am earning a bit from my part-time, I thought of treating myself something that I really use almost everyday? Why not coconut?

I chose pickled plum and lady bug colors, I hope they’ll match my face skin tone.

I bought them online with free shipping. But coupons of any sort won’t work so I had to pay full price for each. Gladly though I got back $2.72 cashback by shopping through ebates. If you want to get paid every time you do online shopping, register and click on the graphics below to get started.

Undies and Travel-Size Body Lotion Freebies

Thankfully, we are close to the mall, 5-8 minutes approximately. When there are coupons for free items arrive in our mailbox, trust me, they will not go to waste as I always claim them on time. I just can’t let freebies to pass by especially if I know what I am getting are from my favorite shops.

I don’t use body lotions fast, but over time I can accumulate almost enough to send to my family and friends in the Philippines. Victoria’s Secret and Bath and Body Works products are expensive, but with the use of coupons and store sales, that is when I will be able to afford many pieces to give out to selected people I know.

Coupons are one of the reasons why I keep coming back to shop at Victoria’s Secret. They have been so generous to me and so they deserve my loyalty as one of their thousand shoppers. I always look forward to receiving their coupons for freebies in the mail. Whenever they come, they make my day awesome.

Pink Products for Less Than $2

Sweet, almost free PINK products below I grabbed last week. I only paid  $1.08 total for all five items, it would have been over $50 if I wasn’t wise doing my round of shopping at the Victoria’s Secret store. How did I do this? Well, here’s a breakdown.

Boy shorts $9.50 orig price, I used that $1 coupon they gave me for trying on a bra at their store, then the PINK mini mists on sale for $5 each, I had $20 worth gift certificate that they sent me two weeks ago as a birthday gift certificate. I did two different visits since VS would only accept certificate one at a time.

I love it when I get to avail almost free of my favorite products. Since I am visiting my motherland in a month, these items can make great gifts to chosen people. I hope they will like the scent and that they will be happy to receive these.

Maxasorb D3 and B12, My New Beauty Regimen


I received these two products from Tomoson for free in exchange of my honest opinions. All opinions are mine!

So I have been using these two awesome skin products called Maxasorb B12 and D3 on my arms and legs. I notice significant improvement of my ever dry skin for just two weeks of using them everyday. My skin are now smoother than ever.

I like these products because they are made with natural ingredients, no greasy feeling, unscented, formulated without parabens which gives me confidence what I am using is free of harmful chemicals which is very bad for my health. Since these products don’t specifically say for face, hand or body, I just apply them on my arms and legs pumped out together and apply both at once.

Maxasorb D3 promotes a healthy heart, strong bones, and an improved immune system while the B12 serum provides maximum absorption and is hypo-allergenic. And most of all, it is made in the USA.

Choosing the Right Hair Extension Method for You

 Too often, people assume that amazing hair is something you are born with. This is simply not the case. Great hair is possible for just about anyone with today’s options. In fact, many people are turning to hair extensions to provide them with the style they desire. Since there are several different methods for extensions, it is important to pick one that suits your needs. The following guide will help you select the right ones.

 Glue In

 A lot of people get glue in extensions because they are longer lasting. This type of extension is added to the hair with a keratin bond. Most people love the look of them, but they dislike the maintenance that is required. You also have to be careful when you condition your hair or use hair tools. These products and tools can weaken the bond connecting the hair and the extension. If you are low maintenance with your hair and simply want to add length or volume, you will probably love having these in your hair.

 Clip In

 Popular alternatives to long lasting extensions are ones that clip into your hair. These are very versatile, and there are several different styles to choose from. They are also available in real and synthetic hair. You can add these into your hair daily or on occasion to add length, texture, volume, and style. If you choose this option, it is important to take care of your hairpieces. Make sure to wash them and let them dry flat. Also, comb through them regularly to get rid of any tangles. This will ensure that they last longer and look better when you wear them.

 Weave

 Women who have thick, coarse hair often prefer sewn-in extensions. A weave is applied to tightly braided pieces of your own natural hair. Most people have to tighten the braided sections of their hair regularly so the hair looks good. The tightening process can take a little time, but it does enable the hair to look beautiful as a result.

 Tape

 You can also tape extensions into your hair using Sellotape. This might be a good option if you want volume added to your hair. A long row of extensions is taped in between a section of your hair. Most people love the results, and the upkeep is minimal as long as you do not brush too hard.

 Before you choose an extension, make sure to evaluate your hair and your needs. This will allow you to make a more informed decision about your hair for the best results.
