Haul : New at the drugstore

Friday, January 16, 2015

Hello lovelies!

If you follow the Facebook page, you've seen a post with a few displays I came across at my local Rite Aid. I didn't know if it was ok for me to take pictures, so I was trying to be subtle and only took those shots. BUT WOW! 2015 is looking to be a promising year for affordable beauty goods.

I resisted the urge to buy EVERYTHING and picked up a few things (some sorts new, and some hot off the press items).

I really wanted to try the new Garnier BB Cream for acne-prone skin, but they don't have the "fair" shade out yet, only "light to medium" which I'm afraid would be too dark on me...

I was hesitating between the new Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation and the L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation. But a) I just talked about a phenomenal Maybelline foundation b) I never gave L'Oreal foundations any love c) it was BOGO40% off on all L'Oreal and I knew I had to get my hands on that Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray! Soooo ya know... Man oh man am I stoked to try these out! 

**UPDATE : you can read my review for the setting spray HERE and for the foundation HERE!**

I did let myself tempted by other Maybelline products though ; I got me the Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara (in the shade Deep Brown), and their new Lash Sensational Mascara. I'm a bit confused with the applicator on the brow gel, but we'll see...

In the Revlon section the new Photoready Eye Art Lid+Line+Lash caught my eye. I went with the shade Topaz Twinkle, because it seemed like the most wearable one, for me anyways, there's definitely some fun colors! They seem really cool ; you get a cream shadow on one end and a glitter liner on the other.

As far as Covergirl is concerned, I really wanted to get the new Full Lash Bloom Mascara (Lashblast), but I didn't find it at this location, however it shall be mine soon, I will make it my mission! They did however, repackage their Colorlicious Lipsticks (color coordinated, so cute) and I got suckered in and splurged on two new shades : Ravishing Rose and Coquette Orchid. I couldn't swatch them in the store, and now that I did, I'm afraid there might be too much sheen to them and they'll end up looking frosty on me...We'll see...

I don't usually gravitate towards Wet n Wild, but this little baby was on display, and only 4.99$ I figured I'd give it a shot. It's the Prep & Prime box set and it comes with the Coverall Primer and the Coverall Correcting Palette. What really drew me in is the correcting palette, shockingly enough I've never owned one. I used to dream of getting the Lise Watier one but never caved...I doubt this is a dupe but who knows... I might like it!

And that completes my little loot! Have you seen any new cool products I should be getting my hands on? Also let me know if you'd like reviews on any of the things mentioned here. Can't wait to play around!

Talk to you soon,



  1. Oh my word I love that loreal make up spray. It works like a charm. Feels nice to know there is something at the drugstore that can hold you up while you grow a mac wish list lol...love the colors you got on the selections

    1. I know! I can't wait to really see how it holds up on me! Definitely recommend waiting for a sale or BOGO type discount! I'm actually returning both lipsticks. They look sooo frosty on me, like 80's bad lol
