I usually post on Wednesday but I really wanted to find this foundation before posting. We went to about 3 local stores with no luck. In the meanwhile I purchased some other little stuff while being out.
Like I always mention I set my eyebrows with e.l.f.’s clear eyebrow gel. The reason I love this product is because of how inexpensive it is. At only $2 for an eyebrow gel and mascara I feel like you can’t go wrong. I can either fill in my eyebrows and set them with the gel or just use the gel alone. Once I’m out of the eyebrow side I actually use the mascara on the eyebrows as well. Perfect, good, and cheap!
This BB cream by Rimmel was such a disappointment and I wish I wouldn’t of been so impulsive with it. For a while I’ve wanted a product that is light weight but still provides enough coverage that it can be worn alone without concealer. What attracted me to this specific BB cream was the name, BB Cream Matte. As someone who tends to be very oily its only natural I seek products that will keep me matte the longest.
This specially formulated BB Cream is packed with matte perfecting benefits, resulting in gorgeous and shine free skin! Minimizing the appearance of pores and evening skin tone while controlling shine, the lightweight formula makes it perfect for combination to oily skin, with ideal benefits: soothes, conceals dark circles and even helps prevent blemishes. -From the Rimmel Website
It does provide good coverage. Initially I was very impressed. However, it only comes in TWO shades (Seriously?!?) so I set it with my Mac powder foundation for some color. I had an early doctors appointment so I didn’t want to pack on a full face which is why I didn’t bronze. BUT by like 10AM I was as oily as can be. Like bad pizza greasy . . . ugh!
Now this impulse buy I’m happy with. NYX Intense Butter Gloss in Chocolate Crepe is such a pretty shade. I am all about glosses for the warmer weather. My lips tend to be drier during summer (weird right?) so I always use glosses.
This is a swatch from the NYX website. I feel like I need to mention these smell amazing like cake or a cupcake. . . or like frosting! The applicator is awesome, yay. I can’t handle how pretty of a color it is. BTW, as I’m on the NYX website I am SOO tempted to purchase more.
Another lip purchase I made was this Wet n Wild MegaLast lip color. This is in the shade Just Peachy. I’ve owned other shades in this formula when they first released and I wasn’t too impressed. Like I’ve mentioned matte lipsticks tend to dry my lips but I’m hoping it’ll be different this time. I did purchase an awesome lip balm to help with dry lips. Walgreen’s is having a bogo sale and my kiddo wanted a nail polish so momma got a lippie, #WINNING!
Now this foundation is what I’ve been waiting for!! This is Milani’s Conceal+Perfect 2 in 1 Foundation+Concealer. The idea that it can provide that much coverage is mind blowing. It also comes with a pump, bonus! I hope this foundation lives up to the hype because besides my Estee Lauder Double wear I have not found a foundation I love that is drugstore.
Combat under eye circles, redness and other skin imperfections with this full coverage, water-resistant foundation plus concealer in one. A no mess, no drip pump dispenses just the right amount of fluid needed to achieve a flawless look and works around the clock to keep skin looking naturally perfect! -From the Milani website
There is a variation of shades on the Milani website but in stores I saw way less. Maybe half of them. Also, it was sold out in most stores I looked for it. So I suggest looking which stores actually have it and maybe even calling to make sure. I wish I had. Could have saved us some trips.
Now I wouldn’t call this a haul because it’s such little items but besides the BB cream I am so excited for my purchase and I definitely recommend them to everyone! I’m all about inexpensive yet good makeup!
Any drugstore products you’ve been loving lately you recommend???
Thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post!
