Walmart Beauty Haul & Review

 

Hey guys! What would you do if you’re a beauty addict! Beside shopping online, admittedly I also have a thing or two of shopping in brick and mortar stores. My doctor advises me to walk more and to go out more, so shopping is sort of my way to¬†exercise.

My walk ended at Walmart beauty aisle and finding the satisfaction to feed my addiction of buying more makeup products. Seriously this has to stop or someone has to send me to some beauty rehabs. LOL!

But since it’s too late for that, I might as well show you guys what I picked while I was there.

Ever since I saw this on the internet I’m obsessed with getting the new Infallible Paints Eyeshadow by L’Oreal Paris. I grabbed a few shades from their collection to share it for¬†you guys.

But the color that spoke to me the most are Navy Yard and Sunset Fire. The pink, coral and orangy shades definitely scream spring while the navy blue could be used on the outer corner or a dramatic bold look. I’m so glad to have the chance¬†to play with these lovely colors.

L’Oreal Infallible Paint Eyeshadow is a new double-ended cream eyeshadow stick that contains two shades which can be mixed, matched, or worn individually that launched with the L‚ÄôOreal Spring 2017 Collection. It’s¬†a cream shadow format very similar concept as the lip color/lip paint.¬†Frankly,¬†I really like the creamy texture and the finishing.

The packaging is quite nice as it holds two shades each of which has its own sponge applicator for applicator. The shades are complimentary to each other but a little difficult to wear together at times. The creamy formula is little bit runny consistency that makes blending so easy. When it comes to pigmentation, I think they’re doing alright. The color¬†doesn’t have the best pigmentation but it’s totally buildable for best results.

I want to conclude that the wear is fantastic and I think oily lid users will be quite happy. The color didn’t fade nor did it crease in a 8 hour period that I wore them (some days I had a shade on for 10 hours). They also remove easily which is also nice.

Moving on, I’ve yet another product from L’Oreal and it’s the Visible Lift Blur Blush. I’ve heard of this from beauty gurus and finally jumped on the bandwagon. I’ve the shade Soft Peach which I believe is the first shade from this line. The setback is that you only have 3 color choices to pick.

I might say that it’s lightweight and almost¬†mousse-like texture to it. On application, I feel it has those silicon-y texture¬†close to a face primer. It’s so easy to apply and perfect for spring/summer beach vacation. A little goes a long way with this blush. Just a little squeeze is all you need to apply on your cheekbones.

As much as I like this lightweight and easy to blend blush, let me just say this blush doesn’t come entirely cheap. I paid $16.99 for this bad boy.

Okay, I promise this is the last product from L’Oreal in this haul. It’s not a new product but on contrary it’s a product that has been around for awhile and I keep collecting them till this day. I’m not doing a review on the Color Infallible Eyeshadow since I’ve done that over in my older post which I’ll put a link here.

I’ve been obsessed with Sally Hansen‘s Miracle Gel Color Coat¬†for the past few months. So without a doubt, I went back to pick up two more shades which I really like. I got them in the shades Camo Queen and Twiggy. Speaking from my experience, Sally Hansen’s miracle gel completely ticks all the boxes for me. They’ve a huge color selection which is a plus in my book. I like that it’s quick and easy to apply and furthermore, there’s a¬†nice thick brush that comes with it.

I was excited to try the color Twiggy the moment I got home. I shared a picture of my #NOTD on my Instagram if you like to check it out.

I don’t have a gel lamp at home but happy to say¬†that¬†I’ve¬†them on my fingers for the last 5¬†days and still going strong¬†without any chip.¬†They looked absolutely gorgeous and lasted fairly well as far as nail polish with me goes! I’m usually fairly messy and not the best at painting my own nails but I found the size and thickness of the brush is perfect for covering the whole nail with minimal product getting onto my skin. For this look, I’m wore¬†two coats and it comes out quite opaque. Loving this Miracle Gel polish, I didn’t what I was missing then.

With summer drawing near also means vacation time for us here. I’ve a few short trip planned this summer. This spring/summer-like weather made me want to run out for a fresh mani and pedi. I just love having a pretty set of freshly painted fingers and toes!

Then¬†I saw¬†this Nail Polish Remover Wipes by Avanti¬†which I think will come quite handy because when it comes to removing nail polish, the process becomes considerably less fun especially when I’m on the road.¬†I’m also a sucker for cute and unique packaging so this comes right home with me.

It¬†holds 30 wipes and it’s acetone free whichever that means. It’s my first time trying it so I’m guessing the formula with non-acetone is less harsh on the¬†nails but then again I could be wrong.

Last but not least is a random product I purchased by impulse. I just couldn’t resist the cute packaging and design. I justify it by finding a good home for my pills. Look how pretty the blue diamond is on this silver container. I’m obsessed with everything in silver! It’s a win-win!

Hit or Miss – Drugstore Eyeshadow Palettes

 

Hey what’s going guys!¬†Today I’ll be sharing my hit or miss¬†drugstore eyeshadow palettes as requested. I know how overwhelming it can be trying to find a good eyeshadow palette¬†when you’re not able to test the products properly.¬†Drugstore makeup can be a hit & miss thing but their palettes are definitely stepping up these days. So, I thought it might be helpful to talk with you guys some of the¬†eyeshadow palettes that I’ve tried and I’d recommend if you’re on the¬†fence to pick something from the drugstores! FYI – this is not a sponsored post!

Okay, let’s do this.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m going to talk on¬†these three eyeshadow palettes which I picked up from my local drugstore not too long ago.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My girl¬†friend introduced me to this eyeshadow palette. I like that it comes in a huge pan¬†which means you get a lot more products from this palette. The best thing is it’s also travel friendly.

Covergirl TruNaked Palette is available in Nudes, Roses and Goldens and retails for CAD$12.97.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Goldens shade contains warmer shades of beige, tans, olives and browns. If you’re someone looking for¬†these color eyeshadows,¬†this one¬†is for you. It reminds me a lot of the Urban Decay Naked palette actually. I love the color selection in this palette. They’re so pretty and all the shadows are so versatile. You can create a neutral to dramatic look with these.

There are¬†three matte shades Creme, Cookie and Sierra while the rest are shimmers. I didn’t notice any difference in formula between¬†the¬†different finishes. They all feel the same to me.

They’re very easy to blend out and long lasting. It’s really¬†pigmented while I also notice that it does kicks up some powders, I wouldn’t be too¬†alarm by it. In fact,¬†I found that I don’t need to dig into the pan¬†that hard to pick up products.

I was quite¬†impressed with the formula and quality. They apply so beautifully on eyes and on swatches. I’m loving this palette and it’s a hit for me.

Rimmel London launched these in three shade groupings which are golds and nudes, roses, and smoky shades. I picked this palette because I knew right away that this would be the most wearable choice out of the three palettes.

I have a fairly good track record with Rimmel eyeshadow as I happened be a fan of their Glam Eyes Quad Eyeshadow Palette.

Rimmel Magnif’Eyes Eyeshadow Contouring Palette comes housed in a plastic compact that contains 12 shades. The palette also contains two dual-sided sponge applicators.

Some textures are creamy and smoother than the other. Yes, I’m referring to the matte and shimmery shadows. The matte formula is silky¬†smooth while the shimmery ones seems to be more textured with¬†glittery feels to them. It’s not bad but it would be even better if they’ve have similar formula¬†to the matte shadows.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I was hoping for a much better or improved formula but this doesn’t even come close. Sadly it didn’t bring me to the moon and back ūüė¶¬† I don‚Äôt think the formula is up to par with the Glam Eyes Eyeshadow formulas they‚Äôve done in the past. The shadows blends to sheer and grouping other colors together. It gave me a serious black eye look which certainly isn’t cute at all. That was a deal breaker.

I’m quite disappointed with this palette and wouldn’t recommend it. You can definitely find other brands for¬†the same price point but you’re getting a better quality product.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m not going to do a full review here, at the risk of being repetitive but for those of you that didn’t see my original review, I’ll just keep it short and sweet by saying that this formula is quite impressive.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Wet n Wild Au Naturel eyeshadows are¬†richly pigmented, soft, and glides on so smoothly. To be honest, I really don’t have anything negative to say about this palette. For the price, quality and that it’s cruelty free, I say run to your nearest drugstore and pick one now.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Needless to say, this is a winner in my book.

I hope this review was helpful, and let me know if you’ve found any must-try shades from this line!
