I went to Walmart the other night and found some goodies on clearance. They had their clearance isle set up towards the front though, and had sections marked off as $1, $5, etc. There under the $1 sign was a basket containing nail polish!!! Unfortunately it had either been picked over or they just didn't have much of a selection. Most of the np was those little, tiny BonBon's. I did come across a couple Sally Hansen insta-dri's and SH Salon's so I grabbed those up. I found one Nicole by OPI in there too. Sorry no pics of the np.

Under the $5 section they had a ton of makeup stuff. I did end up buying one of the makeup sets. I thought it was a great price for a trio of eyeshadow, a liquid eyeliner and a tube of mascara. It is made by Almay. these are color coordinated to your eye color. My eyes are actually hazel, but I liked the purples in the brown eye color set, so I got that one. Not bad for $5.

I don't know if all Walmarts are doing these clearance deals or not. I have been trying to get to the Walmart here by my work, but the last few lunches I have been busy doing other things. But I think it is worth a look at your nearest Walmart. Has anyone else seen this at their walmart?

I wish they had a walmart near me too! closest one is 3 hrs away :[
I love those Almay eyeshadows! I have brown eyes, and get lots of compliments when I wear them! But when you don't find them onsale, I find them a bit pricy, so I just buy eyeshadows along those lines :)

KATIE - Thanks! I am so glad they are finally growing.

GILING - You should def. check, you might come across some really good deals.

We didn't have a Walmart near DC until about a year and a half ago. Before then, I had to drive nearly 30mins to get to one. The trip wasn't even justified unless you took your Mama and 3 friends along! LOL! Now we have one about 15mins outside the city. Explains my loyalty to Target.

Anyways, I need to go check this out. I may be able to score big like you! :)

THE PBG - I can easily say I'm shocked to hear how far walmart is from a lot of people. either we have alot here or I am just used to living in a big city. You should scope it out though, they really had lots of makeup cheap aswell as other items.

I live in a small college town and we have a Wal-Mart.
However I have yet to find anything good in the clearance section. IF it even is a clearance section. It is just a shelf with dusty bins and bowls of old organic soap

What a pretty eyeshadow! Lovely.

Love eyeshadow. I am unfortunately also a makeup addict. My favorite is lipstick and then eyeshadow. I have expensive bad habits! Nice set that you found. I would have bought every color. I haven't used drugstore brands in a very long time. Hope you get nice color from the shadows. You will have to do a FOTD next.

Brooke said...

ADOREPINK - I hate crappy clearance sections! I mean it is so disapointing to get on the clearance isle and there be nothing but crap - or good stuff will prices not really reflecting "clearance" if ya know what I mean!

PIXIE - Thanks :)

LUCY - I have said it before, thank god I'm not addicted to make up - I really would be broke. LOL - probably no FOTD coming from me anytime soon, my makeup skills are at a basic level.

OOH I have to go to Wal-mart today too. I don't usually see much make up clearance at mine though. I thought Wal-Mart was everywhere. We have three within 5-15 mins. and they are trying to build a 4th. I'm not in a big city either.

Brooke said...

CREATEITCOTTAGE - Good luck at your walmart! It just struck me as strange that they had it at the front of the store, so I assumed it might be a walmart thing and not just a local store thing, I am curious to hear if anyone else has this clearance at their walmart.

Rai said...

I never used this brand.
But that's a great bargain!

I didn't see any clearance on anything in my Wal-Mart.
Target has a lot of stuff on on sale though.

clockwork said...

Really like the Almay products, nice sale on it at that!

Brooke said...

RAI - I went to another walmart and didn't see the same clearance isle up, so I think itmight have just been that particular store doing it.

CLOCKWORK - Thanks for the info, I don't think I have anything ALmay, so I will give it a shot!
