Drugstore Haul: Maybelline & Revlon

Must stop hauling... lets see if I can do this. I say no make-up purchases for the month of February! Aaah! I purchased a few Maybelline products last night because they were on sale at my local drugstore... What I got was:

  • Maybelline Lash Stilettos Mascara (I have used this before but forgot how I liked it. So, I decided to get the waterproof one to try it out again)
  • Maybelline Lash Stilettos Liquid Eyeliner (This was recommended to me)
  • Maybelline Fit Me blush in Medium Coral
  • Maybelline Fit Me powder in #325
  • Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Peach Satin (This product is quite sheer as I heard from other reviews)
  • Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick in "Are You Red-dy" (Purchased because I watched JuicyTuesday & EmilieClarke and they both loved the red lipstick)
  • Revlon Lipbutter (Yup another lip butter!) in Berry Smoothie
That is all I purchased! If you have any comments or suggestions leave them below :)

Haul / Review: Color Tattoo by EYESTUDIO Maybelline

From left to right: Edgy Emerald, Bold Gold, Audacious Asphalt, Bad to the Bronze & Too Cool

Stopped by a local drugstore and purchased some Maybelline Color Tattoos which have been hyped up on the internet. People have been comparing them to MAC Paint Pots and I can see some similarities in texture and feel of the product. The packaging of the Color Tattoos are alright in my opinion and some of the colors are less opaque / pigmented than others. My current favorites are Bad to the Bronze and Too Cool. The Color Tattoos that I purchased and swatched go on pretty well and you have some time to blend before it dries. Overall, I like the product :) Maybe not as much as some of my paint pots but for a drug store product it is pretty awesome!

Pigmentation:  B+
Texture: A
Longevity/Wear: A

Overall Grade: A-

Haul: Zara Sale!

So I told myself I wasn't going to really shop for the month of January... but I couldn't resist to grab these sweaters :P Zara was having a sale on some of their items so I picked up a few things. The animal print sweater was $19.99. The pink casual v neck sweater was $9.99 and the stripped sweater which I have already worn was $9.99. The prices were alright but I really shouldn't have spent more money on clothes. I already have more than enough and my closet I am running out of space to put everything! ahh! Might have to do a closet cleanse soon and donate some items to charity :) Yay for donating!

MAC Haul: Naturally Collection 2011

I went to MAC two days ago and saw the Naturally collection. The collection has a lot of gorgeous natural colours I wanted to get a few items from it but I had to restrain myself a little... I ended up with two items. I picked up the MSF in Redhead and a Lipstick in Perfect Day. The MSF gives a nice amount of highlight (which is what I probably will be using it for mostly) and the Perfect Day lipstick is a nice nude pink color. I also wanted to buy the mineralize eye shadow in Summer Haze but it was sold out at the MAC I went to that day. May get it later... not sure :)

December Faves 2011

Ok... So I am a bit late with my favorites of the month for December. But better late then never :) Anyways, for the month of December I have been loving the above pictured products and used them almost everyday during the month. There may have been a couple days where I used some other products but for the most part these were the products that I constantly reached for. 
  • Sigma Travel Brush Kit in Tokyo (Limited Edition)
  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance
  • Baby Lips (Peach Kiss, Quenched & Pink Punch)
  • Benefit Bad Gal Mascara
  • Loreal Voluminous Million Lashes
  • Physicians Formula Happy Booster Blush in Rose
  • Physicians Formula Happy Booster Boosting Powder in Bronzer
  • Maybelline Eyestudio in Copper Chic
I enjoyed using these products in the month of December. My lips get really dry in the cold so I am in constant need of lip balm. I found that Maybelline's Baby Lips gave me the hint of color I wanted while being extremely moisturizing (well at least in my opinion). I went for a more natural look in December with just a bit of glow and the Physicians Formula blush and boosting powder helped me achieve that. Plus, I really like the way that the product smells haha :) I absolutely am in love with Too Faced Shadow Insurance, it kept my shadow on for awhile and really prevented any creasing.
