Sorry I’ve been so MIA! I guess its because I’ve been so busy at CVS.. haha. 😛 I’ve included the prices (I think they should be correct, if not they are close) and mini reviews for the products I’ve tried out.
My CVS haul during the 50% to 75% off sale:
Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Instant Definition Eye Shadow Palettes – $2.12 each
From left to right: Metallic, Ocean, Earth, Storm, Mountain. I bought one palette at first (Mountain) and I was hooked. These shadows are finely milled and the colors are pretty and subtle for everyday. (They also got great reviews on Makeupalley.) I hate how bulky the packaging is though.
L’Oreal HIP Kohl liners – $3.37 each (I almost got the whole color range..oops)
(Left to right:) Burgundy, brown, navy, black)
I kept seeing all the colors except for black and I finally found one! This got great reviews on Youtube and makeupalley (except for fallout problems) and I am curious to see how these hold up on a night out. I love kohl on the waterline so I will experiment more with these.
Sally Hansen Hand Cream – $2.32
Nothing too fancy.. this is for my desk at work!
Rimmel Quad Eyeshadow in Smokey Purple – $1.82 but Free after using $2 Rimmel Facebook coupon
This was just okay. The color payoff wasn’t too great and it feels a bit chalky. I don’t own too many purple shadows so I wanted to try out out, plus it was free, so I don’t feel bad.
Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips blush in Healthy Glow – $3.25
Pretty in the pan, but more of a highlighter than a blush. Very frosty. Maybe I’ll try a few shades as eyeshadow?
Sally Hansen Diamond 12 hour lip treatment – $1.75 each but used a $1.00 off coupon…that’s just $0.75 each! I just looked at coupons.com and the coupon has already expired.. sorry! =( (but check there once every week or so because they do have printable makeup coupons that pop up)
I bought one in Engaging (sheer baby pink with tons of sparkle) and one in Princess (peachy nude cream). There are a lot of shades available but these two seemed the most wearable to me. I’ve only used Engaging once and Princess is unopened so I don’t have any solid opinion on these yet.
L’Oreal HIP pigments – $3.20 each
Restless (pale cream) and Visionary (golden brown). I like using Restless in the inner corner of the eye and Visionary is nice for additional sparkle on a natural eye.
Rimmel Royal Gloss Lipgloss – $1.50 each but free after using the $2 Facebook Rimmel coupon
I bought Peach Crush and Sweet Lust… Despite the sheerness I LOVE the feel of these and the Peach Crush scent is so yummy!
Revlon ColorStay Bronzer (Bought for contouring) – $3.49
I bought Golden Bronze… anything darker would be too muddy on me. I’m no contouring expert but I’m satisfied with this product.
Rimmel Kiss & Stay Lipgloss – $1.99 but Free after using $2 Rimmel Facebook coupon
I bought English Rose and Lustrous Nude. English Rose is a bright magenta pink on me.. a bit much. I wore it out once with my parents just to try it out and my mom told me it was far too bright for my face. Oh well. I guess I’ll just use the sheer gloss side. I still haven’t used Lustrous Nude yet.
