Haul! What's New at the Drugstore! Plus CVS Gift card GIVEAWAY!

Friday, January 29, 2016

I don't think I've ever been more excited about drugstore launches as i am now.  It seems as though drugstore beauty companies are really stepping up their game and i am here to enjoy the beauty ride! For today's post, i teamed up with CVS to go on a little drugstore haul!  Plus, at the end of the post, CVS is generously giving away one $50 gift card to a lucky FMM reader!  Ahhhhh how exciting is that?  This way, you can go on a little haul too (but you have to promise to show me what you got ok?)!  Ok ready to see what i got???  Check it out!

05 Earthy Elements

02 Bare Necessities

OK so these new Milani palettes almost didn't make it into the haul.  Truth be told, these were my number one search but they weren't out.  But shout out to the amazing CVS team members for finding a box of new shipments where these beauties were quickly found and of course snatched by me!!  Can you believe the pigment on these palettes?  They are perfection.  Milani always does shadows right!

I'm obsessed with Micellar Cleansing Water!  In fact i have it in various forms from wipes to liquid. This Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water peeked my interest so i picked it up!  Hoping to love it as much as i currently love the current brand I'm using!

The Maybelline Master Contour was definitely high on my list of things to buy!  I will tell you that the one i bought (in Medium) was the last one and i was told that they've been selling like hot cakes. Judging from the colors and pigmentation, i can totally see why!

Shade 755

OK so this isn't exactly new but i will say this, you know you love a shadow when you purchase it twice unknowingly!  Whaaat?  Yes!  When i got home and swatched it i quickly realized it looked a lot like one I'd purchased before.  Well, yes it was!   But came you blame me really?

Shade 10

I love matte lippies!  I'm loving all the new drugstore options available!  I already own a few of the L'Oreal ones and love them so i thought I'd pick up the new Maybelline liquid matte lipstick in this gorgeous nude and it's stunning.  Very comfortable to wear and doesn't dry out your lips!

The new Milani Moisture Lock lippies are so good!  They have a wide variety of sheer shades and flavors.  I opted for the clear coconut option and love it!  It gives you lips a gorgeous shine while providing them with major hydration.

I have a major thing for lip balms... and great packaging!  So when i saw this new Cover Girl OXXO balm i knew i had to pick it up!  It's hydrating, has spf15 and tastes delicious!  The packaging is super cute though i think it's a bit bulky for a makeup pouch in my opinion!  However, it does sit beautifully on my nightstand!

With my itty bitty lashes I'm always on the prowl for a great mascara!  So naturally i couldn't resist picking up a few to test out!  If you are curious about a particular one and want a full review, I'm your girl!  Just be sure to let me know in the comments!

So have you heard of LIT NYC!  Oh my gosh the concept is brilliant beyond words!  So these nail polishes basically have a light built into them so that you can pain your nails and see exactly what you're doing!  I am obsessed!  The polish lasted quite a few days too so i was definitely impressed with its longevity.  They also have lip glosses that light up and have a built in mirror.  Super cute!

Shade 003 Queens of the Bronzed Age

This Rimmel London Creme shadow stick definitely caught my eye!  The pigmentation is the real deal and the application is so easy!  These are definitely worth exploring!

So this is my haul!  If there is anything here you'd like to see an in depth review of, just leave me a comment and I'll be happy to do so! I am still playing with all of this and there are a few things i have yet to try out. Overall, I'm super impressed with all the wonderfulness happening at the drugstore!
