A drugstore has recently opened up near where I live, and the temptation to shop for cheap and cheerful items took over me this week. Everything in this haul was obtained at an absolute bargain, and from what I have tried so far, I am quite happy with my purchases. I'll give mini reviews for all the items except for two masks because I haven't tried them yet - I'll save that for a separate blog post.
Life Brand face masks are some of my favourite cheap masks - it's 3 masks for 5 dollars! And some of the masks packets can be used multiple times. Amazing. I've already done a review of the Detoxifying Mud Mask last summer on the blog [link here] and it's brilliant used just on the nose area to draw out any oil and blackheads. The next two masks I got are sheet masks, which I'd never tried before so those are the ones I'll review sometime.
My lips but better - that's what the Revlon lipstick in Blushing Mauve is like. It's got a slight pearliness to it, but it isn't apparent on the lips. I scored this on sale for 5 dollars. Also for on sale for 5 dollars was the Revlon Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Stick Crayon in Black. It's smooth and long lasting, and now I want to pick up more colours from this line! Essence is a brand I had never tried out before - so I got the Essence nail polish in Black. I haven't worn it for more than a day but I'm very impressed with its application - one coat is opaque enough! Pretty good for 2 dollars.
Finally - I've discovered a great, everyday lip combo. I picked up the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in Seduction which is a soft nude. I've already got the same product in the red shade and I absolutely love it. Since the formula is quite soft, it leaves a stain on the lips but it tends to feather a bit - so I bought the Essence lipliner in In the Nude which matches perfectly. The lipliner was only 2 dollars, and while it's not the best and creamiest formula, I have to say it's a solid lipliner and I'm happy with it.
