Being back in my hometown with some money in my bank account is a recipe for disaster. I'm bored, it's beautiful outside and I have nothing to do but shop.
I have been very good though, not spending money too frivolously but a trip to the drugstore is the worst thing I could do with a full bank account. I needed a few new make-up products because it's me and I'll always find an excuse to buy new makeup.
The three products I bought were not things I was in dire need of but that I had seen got positive reviews from beauty bloggers and thought I'd try them out.
I really wanted new brow products because I didn't have anything that I was in love with so I chose the Milani Brow and Eye Highlighters along with the Milani Clear Brow Gel. Both were around $4 each which I think is a real steal, especially for drug store products which have gotten heftier in price over the years.
I'm obsessed with the Brow and Eye Highlighters; the brown end of the thick pencil fills in my brows perfectly and goes on smooth while the highlighter end creates a beautiful glow and arches my brows. I'm in love with them!
The brow gel works wonders at keeping my brows in place. The gel is light weight but at the end of the day while taking off your makeup, you can feel the flakiness of the gel but it's nothing too terrible. I really love this product because it keeps all unruly hairs in place.
I've been in the market for a new blush; I have my Bouncy Blush from Maybelline and also my NARS Orgasm but I wanted something a little less shimmery and something not cream based so it could be used for everyday.
There is really a lack of great, cheap blushes in the drugstore and I was going to leave empty handed until I saw the NYX display. I have one NYX blush that I forgot about until I saw the display and remembered how much I loved and adored the blush. I knew that I had to pick up another one.
I chose the shade 'Pinched' which is a slightly shimmery, pinkish coral color--perfect for the summer months. The consistency and texture of the blush is great because it goes on super smooth. It also doesn't crease and the color stays on all day. I might have to pick up another one of these soon; it was super cheap also, ranging at around $5.
Makeup is my weakness and I'm mature enough to admit that.
