So today my boyfriend and I decided to go on a little shopping trip so run errands and so I could try and snag some cheap summer clothes for my cruise. Well it wouldn't be a day of shopping if I didn't buy some makeup...what can I say it is my weakness! I figured I would share what I got with you all and do quick first glance reviews.
The first two things that I got were these eyeshadows above and they may have been my best eyeshadow purchase all day. The packaging on these was really nice and much more sturdy and classy looking than any of the others. These were also the biggest at .10oz for only $1.80! I haven't done more than swatch them but the color payoff is awesome and the texture also is great. They have that wet/creamy yet powdery feeling like the L'oreal Infallibles. I wish the packaging had color names or some sort of number but they don't so you will probably just have to dig like I did.
The next items I had to go to Riteaid and get immediately because I loved the other products of this kind sooooo much! The new Maybelline Eyestudio Limited Edition quads are amazing and the Wet n Wild Coloricon Blushes are too. To see my review on the other shades of these products click here
Above is another one of the Maybelline Eye Studio Limited Edition quads in Cozy Cashmere($9.99). Which just like the others I LOVE. The colors in this palette are beautiful and great for fall. The furthest little pan in the palette is a matte brown which as you can tell in the pictures isn't so great (most drugstore matte eyeshadows aren't great) but the other colors more than make up for it! The cinnamon matte shade is probably my favorite.
I also picked up the other two shades of the Wet n Wild Coloricon Blushes that I didn't get last time. After using these blushes for the last week I fell in love with them. They are very pigmented and long wearing so of course I had to buy the other two that they had. The shade on the left is Heather Silk and the shade on the right is Mellow Wine. When you are shopping around I know that Heather Silk looks really bright and scary but with the perfect touch and perfect brush it is absolutley gorgeous!
These next two products are a win and an EPIC fail! The product on the right and swatched on the top is the Wet n Wild MegaShield SPF 15 Lip Color in Within These Adobe Walls($1.99) which is awesome. As far as the actual product goes I really like it. PRO:It is very moisturizing, smooth, and has just the right amount of color.CON:The packaging kind of sucks. It seems cheap and the lipstick part wiggles around in the tube. There was an ingredient list attached to the outside of the tube but you couldn't take the cap off without removing it and it left a sticky residue on the outside of the tube. I took some makeup remover and took it off but that is just a pain in the butt.
Now the next product in my opinion is GARBAGE. It is the Wet n Wild Megalast Lip Color ($1.99) in 901B. I was not impressed at all PRO:none that I could find. CON: super super dry, felt like I was pulling my lips off trying to put this on, packaging completely fell apart (the tube that the lip color is in completely disconnected from the twisty bottom part when I went to swatch it), and the color had faded in the tube so the top cm of product was a different color than the rest of the product. Big thumbs down from me. I don't know if maybe I just picked one that was sitting there for a while or what. If any of you have tried them let me know if I just got unlucky with this!
The last two things I got were nail polishes because I need more right? haha!! I bought the top one which is Wet n Wild Megalast Nail Color in Root Of All Evil ($1.99) just because it is the prettiest dark blue metallic I have spotted in a drugstore nail polish in a while. I found this at tops on a display called Pick Your Poison. If my boyfriend hadn't told me that I could only pick one than I would have gotten all of them because every color is gorgeous! The other polish I got to match these awesome neon orange tennis shoes that I picked up. I found it at Charlotte Russe but there isn't a color labeled on the bottle. It cost $2.99.
Well that is all for my haul. Let me know if any of you pick up these products as well and share with me how you like them!
