Drugstore Makeup Mini-Haul!

CVS Mini-Haul

I was in need of a little more color and lashes so I stopped into the drugstore on my way home. ┬áNow the plan was to pick up a blush or two and a few new lip colors…yeah, OK 😉

I always pick up at least one pair of these Ardell lashes in 120 Demi. They look great without looking exaggerated. When I want to feel glam, I wear these. I am also looking to try a new pressed powder to set my liquid foundation with and I’ve heard good things about CG Tru blend. Mac studio fix is my default, but I’m trying to branch out.

The Milani lippies look like they have great pigmentation and I need some new colors for spring. Still so much more colors needed to build a kit. I’ve hear the NYX eye pencils are everything to make your eyeshadows pop, so I had to pick up a couple.

Last but not least the Milani Easybrow in Natural Taupe. I love that this has a spooly to comb those unruly brows. I use the liner on my waterline to help me look more “awake”. I’ve always found white liner to be way to bright for me to where anywhere near my face, so this is an awesome alternative. Plus, I saw a video from Coloured Beautiful and she used a non-white liner for the the same effect and she’s the beezknees!

This is what the lippies look like on my arm.

  • The pink is 64 Matte Orchid
  • The nude is 61 Matte Naked
  • The Gloss is 10 Coral Crush.

After hearing so much about it, I finally picked up this palette at Sephora yesterday. I absolutely love the colors! This palette is perfect for spring and the coming summer (if it ever gets here!).

Pros

  1. Matte, Metalics and shimmering colors
  2. Bold and neutral colors
  3. Nicely pigmented

Cons

  1. Lots of fall-out!

Overall, this eyeshadow palette is a win and an absolute must have in your eyeshadow collection!

Here are a couple of pics of my results.
