Spring Beauty + The Duane Reader

The first Duane Reade VIP blogger mission is here! Mission 01: Shop the new Spring Duane Reader.

There’s an online version of the circular, making it so easy to pre-shop the deals and highlights before heading out to the store. You can even bookmark and create your own shopping list right there. Amazing, right? To access the online version of The Duane Reader, click here.

My first stop will be at GOSH Cosmetics. I’ve been dying to try out this new Denmark brand! The products look SO colorful. Everything is so pigmented and vibrant. Squeee!

Need even more incentive to try out GOSH? Get $1 off with the Duane Reade Flex Rewards card. Look at all those yellow savings tags!
I think I spent the most time swatching the different GOSH products. It’s highly addictive how amazing it looks. I mean, how awesome is having a lip gloss with a built-in light?

Second on the list is to check out the Spring colors from Prevail. I think nail polishes are the best way to test drive a new trend color. It packs punch, yet it’s a short-term commitment.

Major color injection here! It’s so hard to choose. Good thing they are 25% off with the Flex Rewards card. I can buy more :)
My top three shades! I really think I’m going to have a very colorful Spring ahead.

At this point, I discover two new things that Duane Reade has from the Nail It! article in the reader — Red Carpet and Lee Stafford.

I’m so intrigued that Duane Reade sells an at-home gel manicure system that comes with SO MANY color options. I love DIY beauty. I made a mental note to come back and investigate this section. I would love to give myself a gel mani in the future.

Lee Stafford is new to me, but I’m so glad I found it in The Duane Reader. At first I was going to get some more argan oil (as it was advertised in the circular) but I saw that there was toning shampoo and conditioner. I just ran out of my purple shampoo, and this seemed like destiny. I can’t wait to try it out.

Finally, the best part. The ability to win the entire basket for free! All you need to do to enter is buy at least one Good & Delish item. So the bf wanted to grab a snack. Peanuts!

Time for check-out! My final basket..

Some more new items for Spring! This is to add onto an already HUGE beauty haul I did before the reader came out. Stay tuned for video + post. 
If you liked any of the items posted, feel free to check out The Duane Reader, yourself. It’s a pretty easy and funny read. There are more photos on my Google+ page, detailing the full experience picture-by-picture.
