Beauty Secrets: Rain Checkin’ It!

rainchecks

So….your favorite drugstore brand is on sale or maybe your favorite mascara….maybe it’s 50% Off or maybe they have a buy one get one discount! Likey!

But wait…something goes wrong….

Jump ahead for a secret on drugstore cosmetics!

If your favorite cosmetics are on sale at your local drugstore chances are they might run out of a color you really, really want. Or maybe you’re inclined to stockpile like Armageddon when your favorite brand is being discounted.

The Muse suggests snagging a rain check when this happens. Rain checks normally have no expiration date or are good for a year. That means you can replenish your favorite mascara or foundation at your drugstore when you run out and at the sale price! Just ask the sales cashier for a rain check on so and so product when it’s on sale and stick it somewhere safe. When you’re ready for that new mascara whip our your handy rain check and get it on sale! Normally cash reps write out rain checks for 4 to 6 products so that means they’ll allow you to use the same rain check for six times! The Muse does this when Milani is on sale for buy one get one! She’ll stash away the rain check and use it again when she needs it and not have to wait until Milani is back on sale to do so.

If your favorite color is out of stock during a sale again you can ask for a rain check and get it next week when they restock the display!

Wink, wink, nudge, nudge a great way to take advantage of the system and a really good beauty secret!

Rain checks=likey!

Yay or Nay: Victoria’s Secret Cosmetics

yayornay

The Muse is for the most part a supporting fan of Victoria’s Secret Cosmetics. She’s wondering what you think of their cosmetic line up?

Picture+269

Is Victoria’s Secret a Yay or Nay for you?

Find out what I think after the jump!

I generally like almost all of the Limited Edition Collections that Victoria’s Secret puts out. Most of the regular catalog items aren’t particularly wonderful but they seem to go the extra mile with LE products. Most LE items are pretty special packaging wise and quality wise. Which is why I always pick up the LE items.

So my answer? Yay and Nay for this Muse!

Nay on the regular boring line up…not so great packaging wise, not really pigmented enough to oh and ah over, and just nothing special to get hyped about. A bit expensive too for the quality you get.

nay

Yay on the LE items! Def special! Color payoff is normally quite good, packaging is unique and pretty, and quality is generally quite good.

yay

How about you?

Yay or Nay or both?

Tell the Muse!
