Drugstore Haul

Just wanted to share some things I picked up the other day! I picked up a couple mascaras even though I won't be opening them for a while because I already have so many.
Maybelline Volum'Express One by One mascara
The reason I picked this one up is because the applicator looks very similar to the Loreal Voluminous Million lashes mascara (which I love!)

Loreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara

Revlon Colorburst Lip glosses in Hot Pink & Pink Ice
I LOVE these..I have a blog post about the 7 that I own : O

Loreal Infalliable Lipglosses (the one with the red cap is a plumping gloss)
plumped tawny, Posy, Sunset

Loreal infalliable never fail lipcolour compact in Azalea
Have you girls tried any of these products?

Dolce Vita Look-a-like Sandals from Target!

I picked up some sandals from Target the other day that I think look exactly like a pair of Dolce Vita sandals I've seen.

They also come in brown and tan.

^These are the Dolce Vita Sandals. They look exactly the same and cost $169!
Gotta love Target! The weird thing about this is that Target is doing a Dolce Vita for Target line right now and these aren't part of the line!

The zipper looks a little cheap to me but that's probably something no one else will ever notice.

They're actually pretty comfortable. Wedges tend to be pretty comfortable but the sole of these seem to be extra cushy and they aren't too tall either.

And only $29.99!
What do you think of them?

NEW Revlon Colorbust Lipglosses

NEW Revlon Colorburst Lip glosses
I purchased one of these a while back and showed it in one of my hauls and since then I have accumulated four more!

From left to right:

Rosegold, Crystal Lilac, Peony, Orchid, Strawberry

I absolutely love these lip glosses!

The packaging is so great for a drugstore lip gloss, don't you agree?
The pigmentation is very nice and the formula is also very nice, not sticky!
All of the ones I own have shimmer except for Crystal lilac, it is more of an iridescent than I shimmer.
You can't feel the shimmer though which is great because I can't stand when I have gritty shimmer on my lips!

What do you think of these lip glosses?
It amazes me how much drugstore makeup has improved recently!
What are some of your favorite drugstore products?

UPDATE: I just bought two more of these! : o Hot pink & Pink ice

Small Sephora Haul & first impressions! YSL, Illamasqua, Too faced

Here are a few things I got from Sephora recently and my first impression of them!
YSL Gloss Pur in # 48 I believe the name is pure petal
The consistency of this is really great! Very smooth, not clumpy or slimy at all! It also has a very nice scent..I'm not sure what it is but it's the same as the YSL lipsticks

YSL Blush Variation in #2
I was pretty disappointed when I got this because I think the pictures online (the one shown below) are a little misleading. To me the blush looks a little bigger and more pigmented in the picture from the website. Also, there is not much pigmentation in this blush..especially for the high price. : (

Illamasqua blush in Chased
This blush is so pretty and very pigmented! I'm loving it and I have my eye on a few other shades!

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer
I have been needing a matte bronzer because all the ones I own have shimmer so this is what I choose and I really like it! It's the perfect shade for my skin tone (NW20 from MAC). This is also made with real cocoa so it has a slight chocolately smell to it!
It also has a really nice large mirror in the compact which I like!

Let me know if you've tried any of these products and what you think of them!
Also, let me know if there are in other shades of the Illamasqua blushes that you would recommend!

MAC limited editon lipstick dupe!

Recently I have been loving my MAC lipstick from the to the beach collection in the color lazy day. I started to realize I was really going to miss this lipstick when I ran out since it's limited edition so I went on a search for something similar! Here's what I found...Revlon prim rose & MAC lazy day
Revlon prim rose is on top and MAC lazy day is on the bottom.
(I tried to take a picture of these on my lips but the flash was distorting the color too much)
As you can see, these colors are very similar!
Anyone else found a different dupe for MAC lazy day?

Drugstore Lip Product Haul

I wanted to share with you just a few things that I picked up the other day. A couple of the items I bought are products that are new on the market!
*Swatches of all the products are at the endMaybelline SHINEsensational lip gloss
sweet indulgence & cherry bloom

*NEW Covergirl lip perfection lipstick
My first impression of this lipstick is really good! It is so pigmented and very creamy and they have a very large color selection that consists of 45 shades!!
I want more!

*NEW Rimmel london Moisture renew lipgloss with SPF 15
My first impression of this is that there is very much product on the applicator when you pull it out. I'll have to keep experimenting with it. Another thing I noticed was an expiration date..this expires in just one year! Could that just be because of the SPF?

Pink benefit

NYC Lippin' Large lip plumper in the color Peach Parfait.
One little disappointment was that these do not have the name of the color on the tube, only on the box it comes in.

From top to bottom:
Maybelline SHINEsensational lip gloss in Cherry Bloom
Maybelline SHINEsensational lip gloss in Sweet Indulgence
Covergirl lip perfection lipstick in Sultry
NYC Lippin' Large lip plumper in Peach Parfait
Rimmel London Moisture Renew lip gloss in Pink Benefit
