My first drugstore haul!!

These are a few items I purchased about 6 six weeks ago. I also have a big MAC haul coming soon and then I'll have at least one more haul after that!

So here are the goodies!!

Picture of everything all together:

Revlon ColorStay Foundation in Buff:

I've heard so many great things about this foundation. Some say that it's a cheaper version of Mac's Studio fix fluid, and so I definitely wanted this to be one of the first foundations to try out! My good friend Aleksis was the one who actually recommended the shade Buff, because she said that I have almost the exact same skin tone as her :-)

Revlon Colorstay Mineral Lipglaze - in Eternal Bossom:

The color of this lipgloss is amazing. I first saw a beautiful blogger named KimberDoll wear it and said to myself I so gotta try it out. I don't know KimberDoll too well but she does good FOTD's and has great taste!

Covergirl Perfect Point Plus:

Eyeliner is one of the few remaining things I haven't closely looked over. I'm not sure about the quality of this. I kinda sorta randomly picked this one out and I bought it at drugstore dot com. It was listed as one of the best selling so I assumed that it was a good one. Have any of you tried out this eyeliner before??

L'Oreal Voluminous non-waterproof Mascara:

This mascara does wonders for one's eyelashes. It really does make them look super long and pretty! I like how this one is non-water proof so that way I can fully remove it with ease. It first got my attention when I started following Karen's blog. She is very gorgeous, she does some amazing eye makeup looks and has a great sense of fashion. I recommend you follow her blog too if you haven't already!!1

Almay Oil-Free eye makeup Remover pads:

This is labeled as being oil-free and hypoallergenic which is great since my face tends to get really oily and I have very bad allergies. I'm not sure how well this will work but I'll do a review after I use it a few times. So which makeup removers are really good? Which ones do you prefer to use?

That's it for now. I have some more really good hauls to come in the near future. See ya later my beautiful followers!!

The foundation is great!

The eye makeup remover pads are great too, I now use just the liquid eye makeup remover by Almay (same line) and I loooove it! Smells DIVINE!!

Great haul!

I have the Revlon Colorstay and LAHV it~! It covers my gigantor pores so well! I also have the gloss and it's average. I've been using Voluminous for years and have never ever found another mascara that can even compete with it!

i havent tried revlon colorstay foundation because ive had a hard time matching my skin tone to the shade selection! theres only like 5 or 6 shades in the range ay? ahh i hate having a difficult skin tone!

i know what you mean about waterproof mascara! non-waterproof is 10 times better! waterproof mascara is IMPOSSIBLE to remove! especially CoverGirl Lash Blast! ah seriously took a week for every last bit of it to come off!!

:) awesome haul!

my dear geekymacboy :)

I love the coverage my revlon color stay foundation gives me. I like it better than my studio fix fluid. If only it was easier to blend. (I thing it dries up very quickly)

Anyway great haul. I will try some of these products :)

Karen said...

Awww, thank you so much for mentioning me in the post and for your kind workds :) I'll try to post more FOTDs for you!
You'll have to let me know what you think of the L'oreal Mascara after you use it for a while. It's been my favourite mascara the past oh, 8 years at least (makes me sound old huh LOL). And I heard it's the #1 L'oreal mascara too.
Great choice of foundation with the Revlon Colourstay. I ran out of mine about 2 months ago and I do miss it. I've tried a couple from Dior and a few from MAC in the past half year and Revlon colourstay ranks right up there for me.
Looking forward to your haul posts Hun!

Awwww, Thanks Babe!! That's so nice of you to link me =) You have a really good eye and ear for detail, because that is the excact gloss I used, but I didn't have a pic of it or anything - wow!!
Hope all is well=)

Karen said...

Hey Love, another FOTD for you on my latest blog post :) Let me know if you'd like to see any other types of posts on my blog. And regarding Dior products, I love their DiorKiss lipgloss. It's the most lasting shine that any lipgloss has ever given me. I have it in #211 Pineapple Cocktail. If you have a Sephora near you you should try it out :)
