Spotted: Sinful Colors Summer 2014 Simmer Down and Chill Out Collections

New Sinful Colors shades! These new collections were spotted at Rite Aid by all of the readers who contributed pics to this post, but a little birdie told me that they should also be popping up at Walgreens soon (HOPEFULLY before the Walgreens $0.99 Sinful Colors sale ends on 4/26!).

That same little birdie told me that there might be a THIRD Sinful Colors display for Summer 2014, and that there might be some fun toppers and other surprises headed our way as well! As soon as that information is confirmed, I will let you know!

Many thanks to three lovely readers for the following pics. First up, pics of the displays from reader Shannon:

A message for readers who subscribe to my daily newsletter

First of all, THANK YOU for clicking the "subscribe" button (see the black box located on the right-hand sidebar below) and opting to receive an email from me in your in-box every day!

It's been a while since I went over this, so if you're a newer reader/subscriber, a few helpful tips:

  • The Nouveau Cheap daily newsletter is sent out once per day, at the end of each day (usually at around 11PM Pacific). This newsletter contains links to every single blog post that was published on my blog for that day. It was designed to catch ALL posts within a given day, therefore it's sent out late at night.

  • PLEASE, please, please do not rely on my daily newsletter for up-to-the-moment sale/deal info. That's not what a daily newsletter is designed for, and there's a very good chance that you'll miss out on deals if you rely solely on my daily newsletter for your Nouveau-Cheap-related info. The newsletter is a catch-all for those who want to know, at a glance, about everything posted here on a daily basis.

  • If you would like my hot deal alerts IN REAL TIME, I very much suggest that you follow me via social media. I post a link to each and every blog post I write, the moment the post goes live, on the following social media channels:
Nouveau Cheap Facebook 
Nouveau Cheap Twitter 
Nouveau Cheap Google+
I am also on Bloglovin' but I do not control when that service posts my blog posts (but they do tend to post them very quickly--just a few minutes after they go live).

PLEASE NOTE: You can also follow me on Instagram and/or Pinterest, but please be aware I do NOT post a link to every single blog post I write on those sites. If you rely solely on either of those sites for you info, you are going to miss a lot.

HOWEVER: when it comes to Instagram and Twitter I do post about deals/tips/sightings that I NEVER post about here on the blog due to time constraints. So if you can't get enough of all things budget-beauty, definitely follow me on Instagram and Twitter for extra content that you won't see here on the blog.

Thanks for reading, and I hope that helps!

Spotted: Jesse's Girl JulieG Summer 2014 Limited Edition Cruise Collection

I've been waiting for this one to hit Rite Aid for a while now...and it's here! Many thanks to my pal Emi at Project Swatch for this sighting. Emi spotted the new JulieG Cruise Collection at her local Rite Aid and was nice enough to share a pic:

(retail: $3.99 each, 0.35 oz)

For swatches of this entire collection, please see WorkPlayPollish's post here.

If you missed out on this one when I mentioned it was on Groupon (it's no longer available there), hopefully you'll spot this display at your local Rite Aid soon. Jesse's Girl products are available exclusively at Rite Aid but you can also purchase them directly from the Jesse's Girl website. These polishes are now available here for $3.99 each and you can also purchase the entire set for $23.94 + free shipping. You get everyday free shipping on the Jesse's Girl site for orders of $20 or more, no code required.

Thanks again, Emi, for the great sighting and pic!

Review: Maybelline Master Drama Chromatics Eyeliner in Plum Persuasion

The new Maybelline Master Drama Chromatics eyeliners were rolled out as part of the Summer 2014 Bleached Neons Collection but I believe that the Chromatics are a new, permanent addition to the Master Drama line and they should eventually make their way to the permanent Maybelline display (I don't see the words "limited edition" anywhere on the packaging, but when I get confirmation that these are for sure permanent, I will let you know). If you're looking for these, or anything else from the Bleached Neons Collection, take a look at the interactive sightings map here.

Special Anniversary Reader Interview Series: Get To Know Agata

In honor of the five year anniversary of Nouveau Cheap, I'm interviewing fifteen readers in this very special series, as my way of saying thanks for your support (to read more about this interview series, including how the readers were selected, click here).

All of the readers who were interviewed for this series were given the same ten questions, and they were asked to submit a picture of themselves, their pet, their makeup stash, or anything else they felt like sharing.

The eighth interview in this series is with reader Agata. Take it away, Agata!

Reader Agata

G: How long have you been a fan of drugstore beauty products?

Agata: For as long as I have been wearing make up! Probably for the last 12-13 years. I was born in Poland and I lived there until four years ago. I remember when I first came to the US and went to a Walgreens store and discovered Covergirl make up. I was surprised how cheap all other drugstore brands were compared to prices in Poland.

The NYX Macaron Lippies are now available for purchase!

I first posted about the new Macaron Lippies from NYX back in December, and today I have very good news to share with you: THEY'RE FINALLY AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE!

Available in 12 shades
