Another Mini Haul - Walgreens & CVS
I picked up a few items at both Walgreens and CVS in the last couple of days.
At Walgreens I purchased a $3 Mini Makeup Travel Kit with 8 eyeshadows and 2 blushes. All the eyeshadows are of a metallic glittery kind. I guess I don't understand the whole fascination with everything metallic and shimmering. But there is a good variety of shadows in this kit. I especially like the light and dark copper colors. This kit is by Giordano Colors. It's small and compact enough that you can put in your purse and have a small offering of makeup if the whim should ever suit you. And that mirror is tres great! I love the size of the mirror and will keep it in my purse for that function alone. The fact that I can play with makup only makes this a plus. Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! Great product. Great Price
Along with that I also picked up a gift pack of 5 scented lipglosses called Midnight Rose scented lip gloss by Mind, Body, and Soul Co. Limited. If you don't like smells to your lip products, you probably won't like this one. While the gloss is good and glossy, the scent about puts you off of using them. I keep thinking that my gloss has gone bad. If it had been unscented, they might have had a winner here. The color pigment isn't too pigmented, it is more of just a gloss to put over a separate lip product.
At CVS, I snagged these two lip balm lip butters by Nivea. I had tried a shimmer stick and the smell really put me off of that one as well. I totally dig the shine of the Nivea Kiss of Shimmer Radiant Lip Care, I put it back on the shelf when I smell the product. Another fail. If I don't want to smell it, I'll never use it. But it has good gloss and moisturizing effects. The Lip Butters, boy howdy, these are TONS better. I love the two scents I picked up. They did these lip butters right. Mine are in Caramel Cream Kiss and Vanilla & Macadamia Kiss. Both are lovely, creamy and awesome. Gold star!
These are some great products. Some of the smells put me off on the lip glosses and lip balms but if that doesn't bother you a fig, then these are all winners in my book.
