And Walmart purchases. So I read in the newspaper that there was a "blowout cosmetics sale" going on at one of the arenas in a nearby sportsplex. I was intrigued but I wasn't going to go out of my way to make a trip to see what it was all about. This morning my sister and I were doing a whole bunch of shopping and were going to go to Wal-mart, but never ended up making it there because we ran out of time. So I had just gotten back from a 3 hour long shopping trip with nothing to show for it. I wanted something. I know I am doing Project 10 Pan, but I have set myself different rules, so I wanted to get myself primer. So I set out for Walmart. They didn't have the primer I wanted, but I decided to try out something different. I picked up a few other things there and then left. On the way back I thought "hmmm, I could go check out that warehouse sale thinger" so I did. And I ended up getting, combined with the Walmart excursion, 7 cosmetic related items for about $30. Score!
At Walmart I bought:
Rimmel Fix and Perfect Primer
It cost about 8 bucks plus taxes. It goes on orangey coloured which is kinda off putting, but it blends in well. So far I love this stuff. I think I might just wear it plain even. It makes my pores look smaller and the tint to it kinda evens out my skintone just enough. I think it will be awesome for the summer. Plus you use such a small amount that I think it will last a long time. I still want to try other primers, but I may end up coming back to this.
Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof Mascara in Very Black
This is the "classic" mascara that I am pretty sure most everyone and their mother has used at least once. It's cheap, $5. Honestly, that's the only reason I went for it. I don't really have a reason to avoid it, other than I hate the packaging. I've tried it now and it has a smaller brush than I am used to, which is okay. It doesn't really do anything. No volume, no length, just blackens and makes the lashes stand out a bit more. I think it will be great for everyday natural looks.
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Polish in Green With Envy
I saw this at a store when I was out with my sister and I wanted it, but didn't want to wait in line. So I got it at Wal-mart and was able to pay at the cosmetics section and there was no line. Woohoo! I love this brand, it's cheap (2 bucks!) and it lasts pretty well. I find most nailpolish chips on me no matter what so I like cheaper stuff. The colour is a non-electric lime green I guess. Very spring-y, which is why I got it.
At the Warehouse Sale I bought:
Revlon Age Defying Translucent Finishing Powder in Translucent Light
I wanted a compact that has a brush because I hate those little sponges or puffs or whatever. They had a bunch of foundations and stuff at the sale and I could've probably bought them all it was amazing. But I felt guilty so I just bought one, and since this had a brush I went for it. It was only $6 at the sale, and this stuff I think usually goes for at least $15 in stores.
Revlon Pinch Me Gel Blush in Plum Flushed
This was limited edition a while ago, and was retailing here for about $20. I picked it up for $1. I was dumb and didn't notice the colours on the side of the bottle so I didn't know what colour I was getting. But I have been wanting a plum blush for a while, so I guess I lucked out. When I first put it on it looked a little weird, but now that it's settled in it looks totally natural.
Revlon Bare it All Lustrous Lotion in Peachy Tease
This was $2 and that was the main reason for wanting it. It's just like a tinted shimmer mousse gel kinda thing. I think I'll use it as a hilighter for my cheekbones and temples. Maybe even on my collarbones or something. I have large pores around my nose so I wouldn't use it there. It's a nice shimmery flesh-tone so I think it will work well as hilight.
Revlon Nail Polish in Racy Raspberry
I just wanted a hot girly pink, so I picked this up for $2. I haven't tried it out yet so I have no idea how it goes on. But I can't wait to try.
*Note: I did not take these photographs, I acquired them through google images by searching for the products I bought.
