Sephora & Walgreens Haul

Hi, again! I apologize for the lack of posts. School has pretty much taken over my life and I just haven't had the time to get my reviews together. Hopefully, I'll be a lot more active after midterms.

Sephora:
Make Up For Ever | Aqua Rouge - Shade 9
It appears bright in picture, but it's actually quite dark - very dark. After swatching all of the shades on my hand, number 9 looked like it fitted me the most. However, the dark vampy red is a little too much for me. I plan to go back to Sephora this weekend to either exchange it to a my lips, but better shade if I can find one, or probably just exchange it for another product... It's amazing though! It's waterproof and doesn't transfer once it dries.

A messy lip swatch:

Shiseido | Facial Cotton Pads
I will never be able to go back to regular cotton pads. They're amazingly soft and seriously the best ones I've ever used.

Sephora | Professionnel Brushes (15 & 45)
They were on sale. I couldn't resist!

Fresh | Sugar Kisses Mini Lip Duo
Oh, the perks of being a Beauty Insider around your birthday!

Walgreens:
Milani | Eye Tech Extreme Liquid Eye Liner
I'm always looking for a good liquid eyeliner, so I figured I'd give this one a try.

ELF | Disney Villainous Villain Palettes
There were a total of three palettes, but only two caught my eye: Cruella Evil Everyday Eyes & Maleficent Sinister Smoky Eyes.

Now... do I think they're worth $10 each? Definitely not... but they're crazy cute! I only recommend getting these if you're a collector.

That would be it for my haul. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I think that lip colour looks good on you but I can see it not being an everyday one... I guess better to exchange for one you can use more often (though I am not really one to talk with my mountain of lipsticks, haha). Great haul!
