I've been trying to get my mind off of everything that happened in the last 2 months, and what's better than retail therapy?! A good friend gave me a gift card and told me to buy some things for myself to cheer me up because things have been so rough lately. Normally I would save it for bills, or the kids, or something we need, but she insisted I spend it on myself, and who am I to argue?! 😉😄 I bought some clothing also that I may post a collective haul of soon, but for now I wanted to post some awesome new drugstore products that I purchased and have been using pretty much daily. Let's jump right in...
Covergirl Trunaked Peach Punch Palette
I actually purchased the entire Peach Punch line. I'm really impressed with the highlight, it's beautiful. The highlight is by far my favorite thing from the entire line. The blushes are really pretty too. The entire line is peach scented and I love it. It's not too overpowering, but definitely scented. The palette is nice, I like the color scheme a lot and the gold/nude colors are gorgeous. The only downside is the matte colors have quite a bit of fallout so you have to be careful with that.
I was super excited to finally get my hands on this palette. The colors are beautiful and it has some shades that you wouldn't normally see included in a palette. I wish they had more yellow hues, but overall I really like it. A few of the colors could be a bit more pigmented but for the most part it's a great palette.
This is another palette I was very excited to finally purchase. It's apple scented, and I'm not going to lie, that's 90% of the reason I bought it. 😂 The colors are absolutely beautiful. I've been using this palette the most out of the palettes I've purchased recently. Every color has great pigmentation and there are so many different looks you can do with this palette alone. It has a mix of matte and shimmer shades which I love.
NYX Ultimate Shadow Palette
When I saw this palette, I had to have it. I have a TON of nude eyeshadow palettes, but not many with bright colors. This palette literally has every color of the rainbow and although I haven't had a chance to use every shade yet, I've used about 75% of them and they are all super pigmented. NYX has yet to really let me down, and this is just another great NYX product.
No7 Airbrush Away Pore Minimizing Primer
I wasn't looking for a primer, but I always try the in-store testers. Once I tried this, I had to buy it. It's silky smooth (silicone based) and does help make my big pores look not as noticeable. It's an excellent primer and I've been using it every single day lately.
NYX #thisiseverything Lip Oil
I've owned thousands of makeup products, but for some reason I've never owned a lip oil before. So for that reason, plus the pretty packaging, I had to get this. I've been putting it on my lips at night before bed and I really love how hydrated it keeps them throughout the night. I'll definitely continue to use this nightly.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Palette
Okay, this one isn't drugstore, but I felt I should include it because I really love it. I've been wanting this for a while and finally splurged on it. I'm glad I did. Normally I use powder contour products and was a little nervous to try cream products because I thought they would be messy to apply. I was wrong. I am really impressed with this palette and (as you can see) I've been using it a TON. If you're on the fence about buying this because it's high end and a little more pricey, definitely splurge and get it. It's totally worth it, I promise!
