Haul + First Impressions: Walgreens and Target

Hey there, pretty ladies! I picked up a few items at Walgreens and Target recently, and thought I'd share some first impressions.   Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick (09) I know I keep buying lip products lately, but I can't help myself! I snagged the Kate Moss for Rimmel lipstick in shade 09 that I had been eyeing online. This color is very bright and absolutely gorgeous (darker and brighter in person)! I've been into berry colors for my lips lately, and this one seemed perfect to add to my collection because it's a little more on the purple side than what I owned already. It also seems like a great color for fall as well, so I'm excited to get a lot of use out of it. This…

Hi, there! I've collected a few things from the drugstore lately, and thought I'd share what they are and how they're working out for me. Jordana Easyliner for Lips I'm always looking for lip liners because my lips have a difficult shape to follow with lipstick, and liners help keep the color where it should be. I've heard a lot of bloggers on YouTube and Wordpress talk about these lip liners (most recently on Etsycare), so I made a mental note to check them out the next time I went to Walgreens, since I knew the one near me stocks them. They didn't have all of the colors available, but I was able to find 4 that I liked. I got Baby Berry, Tawny, Plush Plum, and Terra Kiss (left…

You knew this was coming... http://instagram.com/p/Z_vILBS1A0/# YSL Rose in Tension and Covergirl Fervor Both of these lipsticks came from my recent haul, where I showed you guys swatches on my hand and noted that the colors are very similar. On the lips, though, the pink tones of Rose in Tension really stand out against the red tones in Fervor. Fervor also seems to have a shimmer to it. So, they're not dupes, but they're definitely in the same family!

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick in #5

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick in #5

Lips, Product reviews
I was at Sephora recently and decided to finally splurge on a YSL lipstick. I was a bit nervous because I've heard that once you try one, you're hooked, and I can't get addicted to a product that's $34 a pop. But I had a gift card, so that makes it OK, right? I'll first state the obvious: the packaging is gorgeous. Everyone's seen it. Everyone's talked about it. But seriously, look at it. Let's move on. I saw that there was a new-ish line out (Rouge Volupte Shine rather than Rouge Volupte Silky Sensual Radiant), so I decided to check that out. I decided on #5 "Fuchsia in Excess," a beautiful bright cool-toned pink, and apparently it's a Sephora exclusive. I like to think of the color as the…
