Much Needed Makeup Haul. . .

Hi dolls,

For the majority of the time in the past few months, I've only purchased one or two nakeup products at a time. I have an arsenal of makeup and beauty products that could probably last me for a year or two just with the things I have. Although I have a ton of makeup already, I was running low on my favorite products, I needed a different foundation color, and there were some new products that I was dying to try. This resulted in a little shopping trip. Here are the things I bought:

Sonia Kashuk Foundation Brush 114- $10.99 @ Target

I had heard great reviews on this foundation brush. My old Bare Minerals foundation brush was definitely on it's last leg. From my experience,  I've fallen in love with almost every Sonia Kashuk makeup product that I've ever purchased. This was no different.

Ecotools Retractable Kabuki Brush- $7.99 @ Target

This brush is incredibly soft but also holds a decent amount of product. I needed a new kabuki that I could throw in my makeup bag and I was pleasantly surprised to find one that was retractable. I've never used any Ecotools products before but I really like this brush so far.

Neutrogena Shine Control Makeup (Foundation)- $11.97 @ Walmart

I have combination skin but lately it's been pretty oily. With the Mary Kay foundation I was using almost daily before this, I would constantly have to reapply translucent powder over it and I got tired of doing that. I swatched the Neutrogena foundation on my hand and noticed how truly matte it was. I was very impressed and hooked immediately.

NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder in Brunette- $5.99 @ Target

I actually have the same NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder in one shade darker from when I dyed my hair dark last year. Now that my hair is a bit lighter with an ombre effect, I needed a lighter eyebrow powder. This is my holy grail eyebrow product. :)

Revlon Diamond Lust Eye Shadow in Plum Galaxy- $4.49 @ Target

 After getting the things I needed, I browsed the aisles for quite a while looking at things I wanted. All of the Revlon Diamond Lust shadows caught my eye immediately.  (How could they not?! Women love sparkly things!) I decided to try out this gorgeous deep plum shade because I have a beautiful baby pink color that would go perfectly with it.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Cupcake (055)- $6.48 @ Walmart

I've tried Revlon Lip Butter before in different shades and fell in love with not only the gorgeous pigment but the creamy consistency as well. These Lip Butters make my lips feel smooth as silk and I love it. (So does my fiance. Hey girl heyyyy. ;) ) This particular shade is a baby pink color mixed with a light fuschia color. It looks grrat against my skin tone and I've been using it almost everyday since I bought it.

 That concludes my drug store makeuo haul. Overall I'm very happy with the products I've purchased. Have you ever used any of these products? Are there any you are dying to try? What do you want to see more of on my blog?? Let me know in the comments below. As always, thanks for reading and I'll talk to all of my beautiful readers soon!! ♡♥

  4. I've had my eye on that ecotools brush for a while now! Nice haul :)


  5. Nothing like a good haul! I still haven't found the right shade for my eyebrows, but the one on the right looks quite like it!
    Also love the lipbutter!


  6. I love the revlon lip butters too!! They are so smooth and super moisturizing! The color that you have looks lovely! I really need a new brush myself! I have been using my fingers to apply my makeup/foundation now because my brush is so old and dirty. I don't mind, but I really want a new brush hehe. I have never had a kabuki brush before, but that one looks so cool! =)

  7. I'm in need of a new brush, so I might check out this Ecotools one!

    1. You should! It's my first ecotools brush so I wasn't sure how the quality would be. It ended up being really great quality and it doesn't shed like my old kabuki did so I'm very happy with my purchase. :)

      xo, Sarah

  8. I sometimes use the Neutrogena Healthy Skin and I've been wondering about the Shine Control foundation.

  9. i wish i liked SK brushes. I find they're too rough and for the same price i can get a sigma one that's softer. but SKs matte shadow palette is one of my holy grail products. LOVE it!
    and lip butters! obsessedddd
