Eyes, lips, and nails – a drugstore haul
Hello everyone, hope y’all had a lovely weekend :) Ever since I started working full-time my weekends have been a lot less exciting. As a matter of fact, the highlight of my weekend was being able to go to CVS and splurge on some eyes, lips, and nails goodies xD
Some of these were products I’ve been wanting to try for a while, and others were sort of an impulse buy. But overall, I’m pretty happy with what I got :D
The Wet & Wild polishes were a total steal for just $0.99, each. As Gold As It Gets is my first Essie nail polish, and it looked so gorgeous in the bottle that I couldn’t pass it up.
So I finally returned the disappointing L’oreal Colour Riche Balms and exchanged them for their lipsticks, which have been totally amazing. I definitely want to stock up on other colors now :)
The Revlon lipstick was a total miss for me – the color was too sheer, too light, and too shimmery. However, the lip gloss was a hit! Love how it gives my lips the perfect pop of color it needs :]
I tried the Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr cream gel shadows once in the past and didn’t like them, but after hearing everyone else rave about them, I decided to give them another try. Turns out I got a bad batch my previous purchase, because these are AWESOME. Everything from the color payoff to the staying power is just great.
I’ve been using Barely Beige as my shadow base/primer and for work I’ve just been using Bad to the Bronze to give my lids some color. I think Barely Beige is a limited edition shade for Fall 2012, so if you’re interested you should pick one up when you get the chance.
That’s it for my drugstore haul :) Have you tried any of these products before? If not, let me know if you’re interested in reviews or swatches!
