Maybelline GreatLash Mascara $.82 (starting 4/26)

maybelline new york

Maybelline GreatLash Mascara -the one in the pink & green tube – has always been one of my favorite brands. Back in college, when I actually read fashion magazines, and you know, attempted to be fabulous, this was one of the brands that all the makeup artists recommended, even for people who weren’t on a budget like I was. When I’m feeling like splurging, I’ll go with something amazing, like Blinc KissMe mascara from Sephora. But let’s be honest – with three kids in our house, my budget doesn’t often allow for designer mascara! So, GreatLash it is, for now.
Here’s an awesome deal starting Sunday (4/26) at Target!  You can get Maybelline mascara for only $.82 when you stack this printable $2/1 Maybelline mascara coupon with a great sale price, plus you will also receive a $5 Target gift card when you buy three.

Target deal (starting 4/26)

Buy (3) Maybelline mascara, $4.49 ($13.47 total)
Use (3)$2/1 Maybelline mascara coupons (must use 2 computers to print)
Pay $7.47
Get $5 Target Gift Card wyb 3
Final Price $.82 each wyb 3

Thanks, For the Mommas!
