Rite-Aid Beauty Clearance - Physicians Formula


Twice a year all of the drugstores do a beauty clearance sale. This year I completely forgot about it until tonight when I walked down the makeup aisle of Rite-Aid. To my surprise, so many products from Physicians Formula were 75% off! How can I say no to that?! I can't, it's impossible. I limited myself to four products and overall I'm pretty happy with all of them!


The first thing I picked up was the Happy Booster Blush in Warm. I have been wanting a new blush and I had heard good things about this particular kind. The heart design is so cute and I love the metallic pink packaging. It comes with a little blush brush that I probably won't use and a little mirror underneath. This blush gives such a nice natural glow, perfect for winter when my skin can look a bit dull. 


The next thing I picked up was the Youthful Wear Concealer in Light + Light. It is a 3-in-1 product which is always nice for traveling. I always tend to overpack, so multi-tasking makeup saves me a bit of space. This includes a liquid concealer, stick concealer and a rollerball for blending. Both of the concealers seem to be the correct color for me and work really well. With the liquid, a little goes a long way and the stick concealer works great to cover some of the redness around my nose. The rollerball seems to be a bit gimicky and not really effective but for 75% off, I'm happy with it!


I also picked up the Mineral Wear Correcting Primer in Green. This primer is said to even out your skin tone and minimize any redness. I don't have a huge problem with redness but the regular one was not in stock. I like the fact that it has a brush attached to it, although I would normally just put primer on with my hands. I just tried this and it leaves my skin feeling really nice! It seemed to blur some imperfections and calm a bit of redness. One thing I did not like was the scent, it smells really weird. I can't be sure if that's just how the product smells or if I got a really old one.


Lastly, I picked up the Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Mascara in Ultra Black Organics. I love the packaging of this product! The metallic green leaf on the top is so fun! I honestly was not expecting much out of an organic and natural mascara but I was nicely surprised! It has a rubber bristle brush similar to Cover Girl Lash Blast, it separated my lashes really well and didn't get clumpy at all! I got a lot of length from this but not a ton of volume, but I'm happy with the way my lashes looked. Definitely a great daytime mascara to wear to work or out shopping.

Overall, I would say the Rite-Aid Winter Beauty Clearance Sale was a complete success for me. When it comes to drugstore products, Physicians Formula is a brand I usually don't buy because it's a little pricier. This sale allowed me to pick up some new products to try without any guilt! I'm not sure when the sale goes to but if you're at a Rite-Aid (or Walgreens/CVS, they have sales too!) anytime soon, be sure to keep an eye out for those yellow 75% off tags!

I tend to buy a lot of makeup on sale/clearance, on a whim to try out. Some ends up in the garbage but some ends up on my Holy Grail list! Do you have any makeup you've bought on sale or clearance that has now become one of your favs? Let me know down in the comments!
