Drugstore Makeup Haul!

I haven't been shopping for any beauty supplies lately, and it was bumming me out!  I had to go to the store to pick up some staples, which I dutifully picked up first, and then I made my way to the makeup aisles where I got lost for awhile.  Hey, no kids today!  ;)

I've seen Maybelline's NUDES pallette around for awhile, but I had not seen their Blushed NUDES one!  I loved the colors, all of them, and for just under $10, how can I lose?  I will try these out later today and take a photo with these...I can't wait!  They look like the perfect colors for summer.

I am a fan of Maybelline's FITme! foundation. I'm nearly out of my old bottle, and decided that I would grab a new one. My old one was 120: Classic Ivory, but this time I chose 115: Ivory because it seemed closer to my natural skin tone. I decided to get the matching FITme! face powder as well. For years I was a Covergirl powder gal, and I used it with any foundation I had. Now I like to have different foundations for different times of the year, and for different coverage, as well as having the matching powder for the foundation. They're designed to go together! Anyway, the 115: Ivory powder was considerably lighter than the foundation, so I went with the 120: Classic Ivory as the color matched better.

I've been wanting the potted gel eye liner for quite some time. MAC is a little off my price radar right now, but I had been eyeing a Rimmel one I've seen around. I found a Love My Eyes version for $3 so I grabbed it. I want to see if I like it. I like the liquid eyeliners over the pens, but the liquid is finicky and easy to smear, so I'm hoping this will be the answer to my problem. I didn't like the brush they included as it's too wide and fat for eyeliner application, in my opinion. I didn't see a good brush in the makeup brush section, so I went over to the artist brush section and found a package of detailed brushes for $3!  Heck yeah.

Here's a better view of the potted gel eyeliner. I can't wait to try this along with the BlushedNUDES eyeshadow later today!

I saw this Wet 'n Wild natural blend lip color which is almost a chapstick as well. This color (hard to see sorry!) is a burgundy color even though it says Cocoa.  Weird.  Anyway, it looks like it will be a good color to wear with the BlushedNUDES. Another to wear later!

Finally, I am at the stage where I just want to wash, lightly scrunch, and then let my flat, limp hair air-dry into some subtle waves. This was the only product I saw that looks like would fit my needs, TRESemme Make Waves cream, so I'm going to try it out and see how I like it.

I'll remember to take a selfie after I have all my goodies on later so you can see how it all looks!
