CVS Beauty Fashion Week challenge + win a $50 gift card!

| February 22, 2013 | 211 Comments


Sooooo another Fashion Week has zoomed right on by and with her she dumped a ton of beauty trends that have beauty-obsesesd folx like myeslf going gaga.

Like last season, I’ve been trying to see if I can comfortably mimic some of those trends without lookin’, ya know, too cray cray. Aaaaand with the help of CVS/pharmacy, I think I can do it. If it turns out a total disaster, at least I’ll be covered with CVS/pharmacy’s 60-day Beauty Guarantee.

Trend #1:
Strong brows.



Considering I was born with massive brows, I’d say that I’ve been rockin’ this trend for a good 28 years now. For serious. Big brows are back and if you’re like me and yours need constant defining, check out Maybelline’s Eye Studio Master Shape brow pencil ($7.99). Even a newb like me can fill in those sparse areas with ease. But remember – less is more.

Trend #2
Insanely bold lip colors.


Yas! Y’all know I love to rock a bold lip and will do so no matter what the season is. Maybelline’s Color Sensational Vivids lipsticks are freaking ah-mazing. I’ll be reviewing them but in the meantime, how awesome is Vivid Rose? I scooped her up for $7.39 and got Neon Red for $3.69.


Hollerssss. It’s easy to hoard these because every shade is super pigmented and goooorgeous.

Trend #3
Blue eyeshadow


Say whaaaat? I didn’t see this one coming. I don’t have anything against blue eyeshadow. I just don’t wear it often. This trend has me being a bit more creative when doing my makeup in the morning. I’ve been trying to find ways to comfortably wear blue. I’m lovin’ this L’Oreal Colour Riche eyeshadow palette.


Not bad for under $8.

Trend #4
White/neutral nail polish shades


I love white nail polish. Like, luuuuurve. I just don’t wear it often because they can be a bit of a pain to apply. But if you find a good one like Sally Hansen’s Sheer Bliss ($7.79), you better rock it, sister.

Thanks to these affordable products, I hit 4 trends and stayed under $50. But remember, for every $50 spent on beauty at CVS/pharmacy, you get $5 in ExtraBucks Rewards!


Enter the Rafflecopter below for a chance to win 1 $50 CVS/pharmacy gift card to snag some products that you were inspired by this past Fashion Week. Good luuuuck!

    SO difficult to decide …. I guess I’ll go with White/Neutral nails since that’s what I’ve been incorporating most, until summer comes then it’ll be the other 3 trends too lol :D

  2. Alison says:

    I’ve got to go with bold lips as my favorite trend- even though I can only work up the courage to rock it every once in a while!

  3. Bee says:

    Bright lips for sure. Even I have natural bushy brows so quite tired of hem.
    Bright fuschia lippies are calling me

  4. carolyn says:

    Bright lips! I love them even though I can’t pull them off hahaha

  5. Pryanka says:

    I’m loving the bold lip!! I used to never wear anything but Vaseline on my lips and this trend has opened a whole new world of lip colors to me! Also, tysm for the giveaway but maybe a cool future giveaway idea would be to have somebody put together their own look and compete for prize money!

  28. B. Davis says:

    I’ve always loved blue eye shadows…very complimentary on my brown eyes. But I think the trend I’m most excited about is the bold lip color. I tend to stick with a more “neutral” lip palette, but I’d like to experiment with some bright, bold hues.

  29. Adj says:

    Love the bold lips in vivid rose!

  34. milaxx says:

    Hard to pick just one trend. I always love a bold lip, but as a glasses wearer I like playing with colorful eyes I use them either as a liner, or over the lid with a dark brown or black in the crease to tone it down.

    I love insanely bold lips! White nails are also pretty sweet!

  81. kt says:

    I am just loving white/light nails lately. The problem I have is I don’t like a white creme and most of the sheer ones have too much VNL for my taste. I want a white jelly/crelly that builds to full opaqueness and keeps that squishy-ness. I guess I’m a little picky…

  82. Golda says:

    I can’t wait for the eyeshadow :D

  83. Diane says:

    I have always been in love with white nail polish. I prefer the shimmer/metallic white to a matte, but I just love it.

  84. Sam says:

    I LOVE white polish, but you’re right, it can be a real pain to apply and get it to look right. I usually draw designs on it anyway.

    I’m loving the bright lips! I’ve personally been too scared to try it but it’s definitely on my to do list.

  101. Tam says:

    While I already do the bold brow, I can’t wait to wear the bold, bright, neon-ish lip color. Since we’ve been doing the nude thing for a while now, the colorfully juicy lips are right up my alley. Lip color is so easy to be on-trend!

  102. AshleyMarie says:
