It seems like retailers lately are really taking advantage of it being my birthday this month. (You know I'm kidding! I guess people buy gifts for other people sometimes too.) I'm not gonna lie though, I have thoughtfully made my contribution to our economy thanks to the holidays this year and my birthday is no exception. In lieu of the season, as well as some decent new products and sales, I bought some new stuff on the cheaps and want to share my haul with you!
L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows in Amber Rush, Bronzed Taupe, Golden Sage, Perpetual Purple
Physician's Formula Healthy Wear Powder Foundation in Natural Beige 7072
Revlon Colorstay Eyeshadow Quad in Copper Spice
Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips Gel CreamLiner for Green Eyes & Hazel Eyes
Wet & Wild 6-Pan Eyeshadow in Vanity (trios / 8-pans)
Sally Hansen Diamond Strength polish in Tyin' The Knot 32
Revlon Scented polish in Mon Cherry 335
Maybelline Mineral Power Concealer in Cream
Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm in Pink Punch
First of all, can I just say the L'Oreal Infallible shadows are pretty fantastic? The wear on these is ridiculously good and they do NOT crease on me, which is awesome for those monolid/sok ssangapul (hidden crease)/wonk eye days. I've cried through wearing this and my makeup was surprisingly intact later on.
Here are some swatches of Perpetual Purple, Golden Sage, Bronzed Taupe, and Amber Rush.
As for the big beauty clearance, I wasn't even really planning on hitting up CVS but I spotted the big red letters as I picked up some alterations and couldn't resist.
If you'd like more info on the CVS sale including a "Master List" of items to check prices on, visit Nouveau Cheap, my favorite drugstore beauty blog. She has helped me on endless hunts through drugstore beauty aisles and I credit a lot of my drugstore favorites to her hard work!
For anyone who picks up Revlon Colorstay Eyeshadow quad in Copper Spice, you can check out my previous tutorials using it here and here.
I'm going to try and record a quick birthday Outfit Of The Day before going to dinner tonight. I hope you enjoyed the haul and thank you SO MUCH for all your sweet birthday wishes on twitter and youtube! You don't know how immensely my heart feels lifted when I read them, knowing you guys took the time to send me your warm wishes. <3 This birthday I feel so loved and it wouldn't be the same without your continual love and support. THANK YOU!
