Revlon & Maybelline Haul







I think I deserve a pat on the back for avoiding the drugstore aisles for so long. But after a somewhat glum day I decided to treat myself to a few new goodies. A lot of the drugstores and drugstore makeup retailers around me do a terrible job at marking which products are new so I'm not sure if any of these items are in fact new or just new to me. 

I hoed and hummed about getting the Revlon ColorStay Whipped Creme Foundation because of the price, but I haven't tried a new foundation in a while and the whipped aspect seemed interesting. Shade choosing was incredibly difficult because you can't really see the color through the glass packaging. I ended up with 250 and am proud of how close to skin tone it is. Am I really improving in the shade selection process? I've only tried it once or twice since picking it up so I'll report back when I have a fully baked opinion.

Once I realized that this impromptu drugstore trip would result in dropping some twenties, the Revlon Powder Blush in "Wine  Not" was quickly in my hand. It's my favorite item from the haul and will be my staple blush for autumn and winter. It's beautiful, pigmented, and lasts. It's a new obsession.

I went a little lipstick crazy at the Maybelline display. The selection was fantastic and I was feeling the plum shades, but when am I not!? From darkest to lightest I picked up "450 Mauve Mania" "665 Lust for Blush" and "235 Warm Me Up". "Lust for Blush" is a matte and the other two are basic lipsticks. At first I was all about these. They were creamy and pigmented. Yet after a few applications and wearing down of the glossy outer coat on the lipstick, I'm not too crazy about them. They ball up weirdly on the lips and flake off. Maybe I just have to keep working with them to get them to get past this weird awkward layer or something, but they went from being downright awesome to meh in just a couple uses.

Have you picked up any new products recently?

xoxo Kayla
