I first saw this trio over in Gianna's post, and then I saw it in person sometime last week. I wasn't really feeling it for it's retail price of $5.99, but with the 40% off deal plus the $1.00 off tearpad coupon on the LE display, I thought just under $3.00 was reasonable. The only complaint I have about this trio is the pigmentation. It's not terrible, but it's not fabulous, either.
I'm excited to wear this lip gloss. It's a pretty, shimmery nude color, and my guess is that it isn't too pigmented. It will probably be a good one to keep in my purse- goes with everything, easy to apply.
The Unstoppable eyeliners have become an underrated favorite of mine. I have another in the color Jade, which is a deep forest green. They really do stay put but you can easily smudge them if you're going for that kind of look. Sapphire is a not-quite navy blue; I'd say it's a touch brighter than what I'd define as "navy". Different than what I was expecting, but still nice nonetheless.
Double Face Perfector concealer/highlighter in Light:
!! This is the one I was most excited for. I know Jamie has raved about this duo, so I've been waiting for a good sale to go out and try it for myself! I tried it out just a bit ago and the concealer is really pigmented and covers all my imperfections. I hope I still like it after using it awhile.
Here is the breakdown of how much everything cost me before tax, including the 40% discount and coupons:
-lip gloss: $3.89 ($2.00 off any Maybelline lip color from Redplum.com)= $1.89
-concealer/highlighter: $5.87 ($1.00 off any Maybelline cosmetic tear pad coupon from LE display)= $4.87
-eyeshadow trio: $3.59 ($1.00 off any Maybelline eyeshadow/eyeliner tear pad coupon from LE display)= $2.59
Chicago has 9.75% so obviously I had to pay that, but it was only a little over a dollar.
I still have my $2.00 any Maybelline foundation coupon waiting to be used. Any recommendations? Anything else I need to try? Or if there's anything here that I bought today that you love, definitely leave a comment and let me know! I love hearing what you guys like/dislike.
Have a great day!
