Cookie's Empire Fashion and Nails

Attention Empire Fans! The second season starts next Wednesday 9/23.  Sure, the series music is great, and the story lines are good. What we are most looking forward to is Cookie! We can't wait to see her fired up personality paired with her snazzy nails and wardrobe choices. Here's a peek at last season's looks brought to life by actress, Taraji P. Henson.

(Don't you wish you could dress like that, walk into the office, and tell everyone how it really is?)

How to get Free Makeup

Let's face it: Blogging ain't cheap! Neither is being a beauty junkie.

Like most women, we use a combination of high end products combined with a few items from the drug store. As they say over the pond, "High Street vs. Main Street" products. In London, they have stores like Boots, and Superdrug. Here in the U.S., we have Walgreens, Rite Aid, and CVS. If you are U.S. based, then we can show you how to score free (or almost free) make-up from time to time. Getting set up requires initial effort, but it's worth it to get free deals like these:

Free Maybelline Baby Lips & Free Maybelline Great Lash Mascara
First, join the store rewards programs. The next time you are in a store, get their card. Link it online as soon as you get home so that you don't forget - and lose out on great deals.

  • Walgreens has Balance Rewards.
  • Rite Aid has Plenti (which you can also use at other stores like Macy's, or at Mobile gas stations, etc.)
  • CVS has Extra Care (which gives ExtraBucks Rewards to use like cash.)

Walgreens and Rite Aid have a point system that links to your cards. You can use the points you've earned on transactions to bring down the balance due. Simple.

CVS is a little more labor intensive. It's not hard, and it's worth it.

Once you have the CVS card, hang onto it. Download their app, and link it to your card right away. Often, you need to scan your card at the red CVS kiosk located in stores to print additional coupons (like this week's $3 off $15 beauty purchase.) The app will give you additional coupons which you can send electronically to your card. (Right now, it's an additional $3 off $15 beauty purchase.)

We scored FREE Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser at CVS

You can also sign up for your cards online. If you are a 'get it done while I'm thinking about it' kind of person, this is the way to go.

The beauty of these cards and rewards is that you can combine them with coupons to get (nearly) free stuff. Assuming you don't do extreme couponing or have the Sunday paper inserts, you will need to get set up to print coupons at home. It's easy. However, it does take a little time upfront.

To Print Coupons:

Go to and install their printer. (You may have to select a coupon to print in order to get the prompt.)

What you need to know:
  • Coupon sites print three coupons to a page.
  • They are automatically sent to your default printer.
  • You do not have the option to select 'Black and White Only.' (They automatically print in color if you have a color printer, which can eat up your ink. That's why I only print coupons as I need them.)
  • You can only print one version of a coupon at a time. You can then go back and print additional like coupons until your limit is reached.

Follow us:

No pressure, but from time to time, we will share how to get great deals. You have to be set up though, which is why we published this post.

Happy Shopping!

Try Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser for Free!

Hello Beauties:

Today, we are sharing a FREE deal from CVS. No coupons required. You just have to be an Extra Care member. And, if you don't ever have your card on you, like me, you can have the cashier input your phone number to be eligible for the savings. We tried it twice at two different CVS stores. There won't be a tag advertising this deal, but it works!

1 oz Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser

Buy 2 Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleansers, and you get $5.00 ExtraBucks Rewards. (They spend like cash at CVS.) The 1.0 fluid ounce size is $2.37 near me. I purchased two for a total of $4.74 plus tax, and got a $5 EBR. In essence, I MADE money to buy a product I have been wanting to try.

You can earn this deal twice per Extra Care card, so buy 4! You'll get two $5 EBR. If there is no line, and your CVS checker is nice, you can do two transactions. Buy two 1 oz. Biore, get a $5 EBR, then use that to pay for the next two 1 oz. Biores. Makes sense?

We Glambo Girls like to use a product several times before posting a review. For now, we wanted to share this deal so you can try it too. Must purchase by 8/29/15.
