Oh my GOSH, Duane Reader Shopping!

Lovelies - I've mentioned on here before that I've been part of a select group of bloggers for my fave drugstore - Duane Reade. As a Duane Reade VIP Blogger, I get to share with you how to get best deals at the New York based Drugstore and what are the must have items you need to get you hands on!
Therefore, I'm so excited to share with you my latest Duane Reade mini-haul as an DR VIP and introduce you to the newest additions to my beauty arsenal!

It's been a crazy week for me with finals coming up and taking care of my boys allergies, that I've hardly had the time to go on a full-out stocking the necessities shopping spree. Thankfully, I came across the latest seasonal Duane Reader circular in my neighborhood shopper pack. (I like to take a glimpse through it and see what's on sale!)

This is the cover to the latest Duane Reader - Spring 2012
You can access the online version HERE 

The Duane Reader features the latest sale products at Duane Reade, fun little tidbits about the most popular products at the NYC drugstore, plus you might come across something you must have...

And well, I headed to my local Duane Reade ...
DR at 163rd and 3rd ave Bronx, NY 
Located by the Luxury North Rose Complex

Honestly, this has to be the nicest drugstore in the Bronx- The store itself is huge, it has a wide variety of products, the employees are nice, and it has an awesome manger - Fernando! If you ever head over to this store tell him Mandii A La Mode sent you! 

And here's a quick glimpse of everything I picked up: 

The essentials:
Hand Wash
Tissue Packs
Cheddar Penguins

The extras:
GOSH - Nail polish, eye-shadow, and lip gloss!

 So, of course I get beauty extras! Here's the story...

I come across the special- $1 off GOSH cosmetics in the Duane Reader
(I remembered from our DR Meet and Greet at Wall Street, GOSH happens to be an exclusive cosmetic line exported from Denmark, and it's all the rage in Europe!) 

As I'm at my local DR, I see the GOSH display! 

My GOSH picks:

GOSH- Peachy

This is such a pretty orange! It's not as bright as it appears, almost like an orange sherbet color.

GOSH - Flamingo

A bright pink polish- almost neon in color! My new fav pink polish! 

The GOSH nail lacquers went on smoothly and the coverage was great! Each pic is just with two coats!

Retail Price: $9.50
Duane Reade Sale Price: $6.50 w/ Flex Rewards

I also picked up a Lip Glaze
GOSH- Light'n Shine Lip Glaze Nude Brown

It has a built-in mirror on the side

and a light up top! How awesome! 

I love this glaze because it's not sticky at all, long lasting, and the color is beautiful! It has a hint of orange-copper with multi-faceted shimmer! Compliments a smokey eye look perfectly!

Retail Price: $16
Duane Reade Sale Price: $14 w/ Flex Rewards

GOSH- Quatrro Eye-Shadow Quad Driftwood

This quad was a collection of eye-shadows that ranged in the neutral area. They all had a subtle champagne shimmer to them, but still perfect for a nude smokey eye! The shadow quality was excellent, not powdery- but of a almost creamy consistency! Loved it! 

Retail Price: $18
Duane Reade Sale Price: $17 w/ Flex Rewards 

I was really impressed with GOSH cosmetics. Their products are great and are of really good quality. It's a treasure to find something so good, at a great price - at your drugstore! You can check out their products at your local Duane Reade store (find your store here) and pick them up while the sale is on!
