>Yesterday I posted about visiting a jackpot Harmon’s. Here are my purchases from Saturday:

From L to R: Serena Glam Slam in Simply Smash-ing and Black Shatter (yahoo!), Color Club De-lux-licious, OPI Diamond Dust Top Coat and Nicole by OPI Drying drops.
I’m pretty excited about Black Shatter but I am kind of meh about Simply Smash-ing. I don’t think that lime green/tennis ball yellow is my color, but I desperately wanted Black Shatter. This color is so hard to find, you have to get it when you see it.
Still playing the waiting game on those nail polishes I ordered from eBay. I did pay for them on Saturday but still – they needed to be here like 2 days ago. LOL
I also purchased Color Club Fashion Addict today, but I am more than likely going to return it. I wasn’t satisfied with how the color looked. It should look like this, however in the bottle it looks more like this, which I think makes it like kind of flat. It is a holo, but a very faint one. I’ll pass.

>I love a good sale

>Pathmark by my job is closing, so they are having sales on everything. I’ve read and heard that you have to be really careful since they are not honoring the sales in their flyer. This probably means they are jacking up the prices, providing a small discount, and then letting you think that you are saving money.

This could be true, however the sales on cosmetics and beauty products are pretty good – 40-60% off. Most of the cosmetics are picked over, so I wasn’t able to purchase any eyeshadow or *gasp* nail polish! There was not one nail polish to be found. I did however, manage to score all this:

From L to R: Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover, Sally Hansen Continuous Treatment Time Released Hardening Formula, Cutex Twist and Lock Pump Nail Polish Remover, Freeman Soothing Facial Scrub and finally, L’Oreal Telescopic Voluminous Waterproof Mascara in Blackest Black.

I love love love the cuticle remover so this will serve as my back up bottle. My total for all these products was a little bit more than $16. This is not bad, considering that the mascara is about $9 and change.

I’ll check again later next week to see if these prices drop even further, but I am doubtful anything worthwhile will be left!
