Spotted: Wet n Wild Spring 2015 Limited Edition Silver Lake Collection Color Icon Blush & Glow Trios

4/17/15: Updated with additional photos (and swatches).

So I first showed you the Wet n Wild Silver Lake 6-Pan Eyeshadow Palettes back on February 9th. Then, I spotted the Silver Lake Megalast Nail Colors and posted pics of those on February 25th. After that, I think we all pretty much assumed that was it, right? Just shadows and polishes in this collection.

THINK AGAIN! My pal Emi of Project Swatch just spotted a third display yesterday at her local Rite Aid, and shared this pic with me on her Instagram:

I Kind of HAVE to Get This Palette, Right?

In case you didn't hear, Nyx released some new palettes today...

image source: Nyx website
NEW Nyx Avant Pop 10 Color Shadow Palettes
Top to bottom: Art Throb, Surreal My Heart, Nouveau Chic
(retail: $17 each, 0.05 oz.)

Considering that the name of my blog is a play on the phrase "nouveau chic," I kind of HAVE to buy the Nouveau Chic palette, right? And hello, it's the neutral palette! 

As of the time of this post, I don't see these palettes listed on the Ulta site, so for now they're exclusive to the Nyx website. I hope they do come to Ulta soon though, since we could use their $3.50 off $10 coupons (duh). Regardless, whenever I get it, you KNOW I'll review it for you!

NEW Sephora Inside JCPenney Lash Out Mascara Sampler

In addition to the new Sephora inside JCPenney exclusive makeup value set and skincare value set, did you know there's a new mascara sampler as well? These sets are exclusive to Sephora JCP locations (not available online) and are just starting to show up in stores now.

Many thanks to reader Angela (@_loveandbeautyxo on Instagram) for sharing this pic of the new mascara sampler that she spotted at her local Sephora JCP this week:

Spotted: Maybelline Limited Edition Queen of New York 100 Year Anniversary Collection (Baby Lips, Lipsticks, Eyeshadows and More)

I've been hearing about this new 100th Anniversary Maybelline collection for a few weeks now (thanks so much for the tips!) but I have yet to find any of the displays in my area. But thanks to some kind readers, I have lots of photos to share with you today!

PLEASE NOTE: So far, this collection seems to be popping up at Ulta (if you're lucky enough to find these at your Ulta this week, they are part of the 40% off sale), Walgreens and Bed Bath & Beyond. If you have spotted this collection elsewhere, I would love to hear from you. I do not know if there are other displays in this collection (Color Tattoos, anyone?) but if you find anything that is not featured in this post, I would of course love to hear from you!

The Wednesday Question (Reader Poll - Please Vote!)

When it comes to the content here on Nouveau Cheap, a few times a year I try to check in with you, to find out what YOU like to see here. Yesterday I posted a message in the Nouveau Cheap Facebook community letting everyone know that more product reviews are on the way (something I'm trying to do more of in 2015) and that prompted me to make a poll here on the blog. I noticed that many members of the Facebook community like my deal/sale alerts (some seem to prefer them over product reviews), so I thought it was a great time to "check the temperature" here, so to speak!

If you could take a moment to vote in the poll below, I would so appreciate it. I'd love to get a general sense of your favorite types of posts. Thanks in advance!

Zoya BOGOFREE Spring Trios + Free Shipping (Ends Tomorrow Night, 4/15)

Just in case you haven't heard:

Now through tomorrow (4/15) at 11:59PM EST, add two of the Spring Trios on THIS PAGE to your cart, enter code FLING and you'll get one of the trios free, plus free shipping. So basically, you're paying $30 total for 6 full-size bottles ($5 each). Not bad at all, considering that the shades in these trios retail for $9 each sold separately.

Do you already own any of the shades in these trios? Any that you recommend? I've been eyeing the May Flowers Trio because the shimmer in those three polishes is so beautiful (check out Kelly of Vampy Varnish's swatches of Daisy, Leslie and Rayne HERE and you'll see exactly what I mean!).

Reader Review: Sinful Colors Summer 2015 Neon Splat! Nail Appliques

When it comes to Sinful Colors, one of the most common questions I tend to receive is, "How are those nail appliques?" I can never answer that question since I have to try them (I'm always drawn to the pretty polishes in their limited edition displays), but that's all about to change.

Sinful Colors Summer 2015 Limited Edition Neon Splat! Nail Appliques
(retail: $1.99 for 1 packet of 16 appliques)

Today I have a great reader review for you, thanks to @lacqueredcubinican on Instagram. She not only purchased the Neon Splat! appliques from the Summer 2015 Limited Edition Tokyo Lights collection, but she also documented her experience with them and kindly shared that with us.

Read on for @lacqueredcubinican's review...

NEW Sephora Inside JCPenney Skinstant Radiance Kit ($35; $110 Value)

If you missed my post about the awesome new Summer 2015 makeup value set that's now available exclusively at Sephora inside JCPenney stores, you can check that out HERE. But did you know there's also a new skincare value set to go with it? Yep! And just in time for the VIB sale.

Many thanks to reader Angela (@_loveandbeautyxo on Instagram) for this one. She spotted this new skincare set at her local Sephora inside JCPenney yesterday and was nice enough to share lots of pics with us. Take a look!

NOTE: these sets are not available on the Sephora website. They are exclusive to Sephora inside JCPenney stores, in-store only.
