Drugstore Haul Part 1!

Hello everyone! How are you doing on this wonderful Thursday morning?

Nathan and I planned to do an early morning hike at 6am. Well....that was before we realized that we were night-owls and NOT early birds <---Should've known that a LONG time ago. Despite many attempts to get up at around 5am-ish, we woke up at 8:30am. By then it was way too sunny to be hiking. Yes, Nathan hates the sun as much as I do, especially when he lost his sunglasses. We need to get him a new pair STAT!

Now I'm awake at 8:30 on my day off and wired on too much caffeine, I decided to post a blog post showing you some of the drugstore items I've gotten recently. This is to keep me in check from buying too much. I'm on a makeup low-buy til MAC comes out with Venomous Villains Collection <--this is supposed to be a big secret, but everyone and their mommas know about it. I will elaborate on the low-buy in the next blog post.

Here's the majority of products I got at Rite Aid.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the NYC Blendable Creme Blush sticks. They are dirt-cheap ($3-4.99 for 8g of products) and super pigmented. I got all of them except for the scary dark ones that I KNOW won't work on my skin.

If my memory didn't fail me, what I got were (from L-R) South St. Seashell, Wild Berry (LE), Plaza Pink, Big Apple Blush, and Berry New Yorker. I also have Pink Flash which is LE and not included in the pic. Then I have Maybelline Collosal Diamond mascara (which SUCKS btw, makes me look like I have dandruff on my lashes), NYC gloss in Red Hot, and lastly we have Revlon matte e/s in Peach Sorbet.

Next we have a haul from Walmart before work:
We have Physicians Formula Healthy Wear SPF50 Tinted moisturizer in Fair-light, which is the second lightest color from the line. Unforunately it was too dark and turned PINK on me. It was a shame too cuz I got the only bonus pack with TWO products in it. I was sad to return it, but it was like $14.95. I'm not paying that for something I'm not gonna use.

Then we have NYC Color Wheel Mosaic Face Powder in Peach Glow, AKA the best $4 I've spent. It looks EXACTLY like Benefit Georgia boxed blushed on me except more pigmented, with more product, and cheaper! We also have Aquaphor Healing Ointment. I got the one for babies just b/c it's the same product but cheaper than the regular ones. Last but not least we have Halls cough drops in Tropical flavor. I need it to sooth my throat from talking to customers all day long. Besides it's yummy and NOT cough-medicine-y at all.

That's it for my drugstore haul part 1! I gotta go take pics of some more stuff I got from Target. After that I'm going on a low buy. :(

Thanks for reading guys! More posts/vids coming up!

Have a wonderful day!

NYC Cosmetics are always great to use it, since I am using it I have found that their products tend to be very inexpensive. I have bought items from them in the past that I was very happy with.
