SALE FYI

CVS is having a buy one get one free sale on HIP. Certain CVS’ have $1 off HIP products coupons attached to display. So be on the lookout for those. According to the CVS employee that was updating the cosmetic aisle they won’t be carrying the HIP Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss and certain Wear Infinite Eye Shadow Quads and Duos as well as other products. I figured they just wouldn’t be selling them at CVS any more but she said nope she was told that L’Oreal will be discontinuing them. Right now they are being marked as 75% off so keep your eye out for that too.

I’m a HIP shadow fiend so I tend to get all of my HIP stuff during these sales. There are only 2 Hip products I don’t really care for the HIP Pure Pigment Shadow Stick and the Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss. I find the gloss to be sticky and thick and I can’t figure out the purpose of the sticks. For me they’re horrible bases and they didn't work well for me when I tried to use them as a shadow. I think I may crush them into a powder and use them that way.

No problem yummy!

You're right about those sticks being dry. I forgot about that. I've used them once an off to the makeup graveyard they went.

The only place I ever see HIP foundations is Rite Aid and Ulta in the clearance section. I wonder why CVS doesn't sell the full line. I know Target sells the entire line but I'm not sure about the foundation.

Let me check on my rss feed and see what's up with that. Thanks for notice!

Girrrrl... I got 2 of the color Truth Liners, and now I gotta go back and get 2 more before the BOGO is over. So far I love the Black and Teal. Now I gotta grab the Eggplant and Midnight Blue. I have about seven of the shadows, but the concentrated ones suck. the bright ones are nice, though. I might grab a couple more of those, too.

Hey blumoonbabe! The liners are great! I know some folks use it as a base but I find them too dry for that. The concentrated shadows work best for me and when I use a base.
