Quick CVS Trip - 8/11

Today was the last day to get the Revlon foundation free after ECBs, and I didn't want to miss it. Here's how my transaction went.

I Bought:
1 Revlon ColorStay Mineral Mousse Makeup - $9.99
2 Eclipse gum - $1.29 each

Used Coupons:
- $1.00 Revlon coupon from 7/19 SmartSource insert
- Buy 1 - Get 1 FREE Eclipse coupon from 6/28 SmartSource insert
- $10.00 Extra Care Bucks from last week

Merchandise Total: $12.57
Out-of-Pocket: $.28 plus tax
ECBs Earned: $9.99
Savings: 98%

I was just about out of foundation, so this was perfect timing! However, I was quite surprised at how small the foundation was. I don't think I've ever bought that little makeup for $9.99 before. Since I only paid $.28 I feel a little better about that!

I know what you mean about the make up. I hope it works :) I can't complain too much though considering the price.

I too was surprised by how small the makeup was. Seemed a bit pricey, but thank goodness for CVS!
