War Paint & Veggies at the Same Time

War Paint & Veggies at the Same Time

I was very excited to be selected to review Covergirl makeup available at Kroger stores.   What girl doesn’t need makeup?  Plus, I love to shop at King Soopers (a Kroger store),  but must admit I’d never thought to purchase makeup there.  I usually go to Target or the mall for makeup.

The campaign is to show how much covergirl makeup you can get for $30 from King Soopers, so I thought I’d try to get an entire face – base to mascara – and see how much it cost.

Here’s what I purchased:

  • Clean Oil Control makeup base (shown in picture)
  • Aqua Smoothers Pressed Powder Compact
  • Lash Blast Volume Mascara
  • Instant Cheekbones Blush
  • Outlast All-day Lipcolor

Everything, start to finish, that I need to put my warpaint on!  Considering I’ve paid $60 for base alone, I was a little worried what the final damage would be, but it was only $33.62!

AND I received a $3 catalina with the purchase so,

Final out of pocket =$30.62.

No, I wasn’t able to buy eye shadow and stick within a $30 budget, but I rarely wear eye shadow, so it’s not really in my personal start to finish makeup necessities.

I really love the oil control base – it covers without feeling heavy and I am a big fan of the lash blast mascara ever since I was able to try it through a campaign on bzzagent.  It makes my incredibly sparse eyelashes look fabulous!

Where do you usually buy your makeup?  Have you ever considered buying it at the grocery store?

  1. I often buy lipstick at King Soopers. Those 30% off signs catch my eye and I can’t resist!

    I did buy an entire face full of make up at the grocery store about three years ago when I went on vacation and one of my bags got left at home. I couldn’t live without my makeup bag!

    • I wouldn’t be able to live without makeup on vacation either! That did happen to me once too, but I ended up at Walgreen’s for my makeup emergency – they have BOGO sales pretty frequently which makes for great prices!
