Drugstore Haul!

Hello ladies!

So, I have a haul to share with you from some shopping that I have done over the past couple weeks from Target, Meijer and CVS.  I picked up a few new products out there and some that I have seen people rave about lately.  I have tried out a few of these but most of them I picked up today from CVS.  Lets jump right in!

The first item I picked up was one of the new Maybelline Color Whisper lip colors. The first one I picked up was Rose of Attraction and I like it so much I picked up Lust For Blush and I love this one just as much!  These are similar to the Loreal Colour Riche Balms but more pigmented and these don't have a smell to them. They are very moisturizing and just easy to wear. Rose of Attraction is a sheer bright pink with some shimmer to it and Lust For Blush is a sheer nude/pink/mauve.  Both are very wearable for every day.  I will most definitely be picking more of these up.

 The next item is another lip product and it is the Loreal Colour Riche Caresse Wet Shine Stain.  I saw this while making a quick stop at Meijer (grocery store) and decided to pick one up because it looked like it might be similar to the YSL Glossy Stain.  I am still a bit undecided about this.  I may pick this up in one other color to really make my decision.  It does become a little bit sticky after a little while, but nothing that really makes me not want to wear it.  The color isn't very pigmented and just kind of makes my lips a bright pink, not exactly what the color looks like on the applicator. So far, so so. 

I picked these two up today because I have heard so much about Wet 'n Wild and specifically about these two blushes in Heather Silk and Mellow Wine.  And Wow, I am impressed so far with just the swatches.  These seem very pigmented and am excited to try these out and give a more in depth review.  Heather Silk is a matte blush in a medium rosy pink color.  Mellow Wine  is a deeper peachy bronze with a little bit of shimmer to it.

 While I was at CVS today, I saw that they had a ton of products marked down 50 and 75% off and I saw this Revlon Photoready Cream Blush in Coral Reef marked down 75%!!! I ended up paying $3.25 for this and the original price was $12.99 I think.  I could not pass this up because I have been wanting this ever since it came out over the summer but just could not justify spending that much on a drugstore blush.  This is super creamy and very easily blend-able.  

This is another thing I decided to grab because it was on sale for 50% was this Physicians Formula Bronze Booster in fair/light. I may end up taking this back and exchanging it for a darker one because this is WAY to light, even for someone who is paler than me.  This is definitely more of a highlight color than a bronzer.  I tried to swatch it, but it just doesn't show up at all.  

And again, here is another item I picked up because it was on sale, one of the Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Strips. I think it is absolutely crazy that these are originally $10! These are a bit more of a brighter coral color than it looks.  I am excited to put these on, I love the color. 

I picked up this Revlon Colorstay Nail Polish in Pale Cashmere while at Target the other day. I've heard wonderful things about this and I have been looking for a light pinky nude color for my nails.  I put this on yesterday and I LOVE it! It is such a gorgeous color.  I posted a picture on my Instagram if you want to check it out. (kris71186)

And the last thing I picked up, also from Target, is this Dove Dry Shampoo. I currently have the Tresemme one and I really don't like it.  It leaves a very dirty hair texture and I just thought that is what dry shampoos did, until I started hearing people rave about dry shampoos.  And then I heard a few people say how much they hated the Tresemme one, so I decided to pick up this one and give it a go.  Tomorrow is a no wash day so I'll spray some one and see how that goes. 

So, these are all of the products that I've picked up over the past couple weeks.  I hope you enjoyed this haul and maybe got some ideas of new products to try out. 

Is there anything out there that you think I should try out??
