Collective Drugstore Haul

I feel like it's been forever since I have been able to sit down and write a post. So today I will be sharing a haul I've gathered the past few days. New home means fresh new makeup!

The lighting on this one is a bit poor, but I am happy to say, our new home has a ton of windows, which means more natural lighting!! Also, everything you see in these two photos I had bought from Target.

I have a bit of a problem.. Or at least that's what my bf says. I've been cut off for a lil bit 
(LOL). In this photo everything was from CVS. I've been on the hunt for the Maybelline's The Smokes Palette, but sadly so far no luck. 

The first thing I got was Covergirls Clump Crusher Mascara with a Perfect Pointplus self-sharpening eye pencil. I've heard a bit about this mascara, and although I don't usually try to many, the name it self sounded good! As for the eye liner, the total came to a dollar more if I got the one without it, so why not(;

Everyone and their mom knows how much I love blush, and when I can find a good blush for a great price, you know I'm all over it! E.l.f's studo blushes are really nice with very little fallout, and awesome payoff for being only $3! I couldn't decide between the two so I got both. Left is Fuchsia Fusion and the right is Tickled pink, even though it looks for
more peachy in the picture.

Sorry for the odd ball lol. I don't exactly have a set place for pictures yet. But these are the three foundations I've been wanting to try.

First is the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation. I believe I got this in the lightest shade 110 Porcelain. 

Next is the Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation which I've heard sooooo many great things about. I wasn't sure which shade to get so I actually picked up two, 105 Classic Ivory and 110 Creamy Natural. 

And lastly, the L'Oreal Visible Lift Blur Foundation with Opti-Blur Technology in the shade Classic Ivory. I've heard many many different opinions on this, so I'm not really sure what to expect. 

If anyone has tried this before, tell me how you liked it!(:

Lately I've been really loving that "dewy"/"satin" finish, so I've been skipping my usual finishing powders. I absolutely love L'Oreals Luminous Foundation, so I decided to give this a try. And if Jaclyn Hill loves it, then that's good enough reason for me to try(;

This one isn't new, but a repurchase for me. Y'all know I can't get enough of this concealer!

This is the Sonia Kashuk Correct and Conceal Palette. I really want to try to the Mac one, however, I can't see spending $40 on that. This was only $12, and I've heard it's very similar. Maybe in the late future I'll budge for the higher end one!

These were believe it or not, more of an impulse buy. I never and I mean NEVER buy single eyeshadows. I was really hoping to find The Smokes Palette, this was the third store I have tried and still no luck. When I saw these, I remembered an instagram picture I had seen with all the pretty shades in line, and they looked soo pretty! As soon as I remembered that, I picked a few of my favorite colors, and went on my way. I guess my bf is right.. I do have a problem (woops)..

Well that is it for todays haul! I hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend!
