US Drugstore Haul (ft NYX,Wet n Wild, Maybelline, L'Oreal, Revlon)

Hey Lovelies, today I have a Drugstore Haul for you! I went to CVS and Target when I was in Florida. Target was where I picked up most of the products in this haul. If you haven't seen my previous Florida hauls you can check them out here - Sephora Haul Part 1, Sephora Haul Part 2, Ulta Haul.
US drugstore haul
Top - 'Nude Peach', bottom - 'Beige'
NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss 'Nude Peach' 'Beige' - I picked up two NYX glosses, one in a peachy shade  and the other a mauve pink. They have a nice smooth texture, not sticky which is nice and they smell like some kind of sweet, I'm not sure how to describe it but I like the scent. Both shades are quite pigmented for a gloss and give a nice sheen to the lips.

Left to right, Maybelline Vivid - 'Vibrant Mandarin', NYX Lipstick - 'Haute Melon', Wet n Wild Lipstick - 'Just Peachy', Maybelline Colour Whisper - 'Pin Up Peach', 'Coral Ambition'

Maybelline Vivid Lipstick 'Vibrant Mandarin' - This shade is a vibrant coral shade, it is has good pigmentation and the texture feels smooth to apply and gives a subtle sheen. I'm not sure about how long it lasts on the lips as I have only swatched this lipstick but I like the pigmentation and the shade so far!

NYX Lipstick 'Haute-Melon' - I wanted to try some NYX lipsticks, particuarly the Black Label Lipsticks but Target only had the round ones so I picked one up in the shade 'Haute-Melon' which is a bright orangey coral. It is similar to the Maybelline Vivid lipstick but this one is more of a orange coral than pink. The texture is smooth and it is very pigmented! Very impressive for such an inexpensive lipstick.

Wet n Wild lipstick 'Just Peachy' - This is a peachy nude shade, it has a matte finish but isn't too drying.

Maybelline Colour Whisper 'Coral Ambition' 'Pin Up Peach' - These were on my list of things to try, I don't think you can get them in the UK at the moment but they are similar to the Revlon Lip Butters. I really like the Revlon Lip Butters but I think I may like these more! They are moisturising on the lips and are quite pigmented, not as much as a lipstick though. The main thing I like best is the shades, 'Coral Ambition' is a gorgous light peachy pink and 'Pin up peach' is a darker peachy pink.

NYX Blush 'Terra Cotta' - This blush is a peachy golden shade with gold shimmer, the shimmer isn't too much and gives more of a glow rather than looking too shimmery on the cheeks. It is easy to apply not overly pigmented so you don't have to worry about applying too much and it's easily blendable. I really want to get some more shades! Also did you know NYX are now stocked in some Next stores in the UK!

Left to right, 'Iced Latte', 'Bronzed Taupe', 'Amber Rush'
L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow 'Amber Rush' 'Iced Latte' 'Bronzed Taupe' - I have never tried these eyeshadows before but have heard good things so I wanted ot pick up a few shades! I also heard these are similar to the Giorgio Armani eyes to kill eyeshadows, which I don't know if that's true but I believe L'Oreal do own Giorgio Armani. You can get these in the UK but I don't think you can get all the shades, I'm pretty sure you can't get 'Amber Rush' in the UK. These eyeshadows are basically pressed pigments, they have a lid inside that presses the product down. They are pigmented and blend easily, I haven't had any fall out with any of the shades so far. 'Bronzed Taupe' is as the name suggest a taupe bronze shade with shimmer, 'Iced Latte' is a creamy gold shade with shimmer and 'Amber Rush' is a rose gold shade with shimmer.

L'Oreal True Match Crayon Concealer 'medium/deep' 'fair/light' - I haven't tried these yet but I got these in a light shade and a dark shade as I thought the crayon shape would be nice to use for contour and highlight. They feel creamy when swatched and seem to blend easily.

NYX Jumbo Pencil 'Milk' - I have wanted this Jumbo Pencil for a while, I picked up another shade in 'Cashmere' which I showed in my last post, but the shade 'Milk' is just a white shade that I thought would be good as a base under any eyeshadow look especially if you want to make a eyeshadow more intense.

Revlon Lash Potion Mascara - I haven't tried this yet either. I like the packaging and the packaging it is supposed to be good for your lashes and help them grow. I'll let you know what I think of it once I've tried it out.

So thats all the drugstore bits I picked up, I know my blog has been a lot of hauls lately and I hope you don't mind! I love seeing other peoples hauls as I guess I'm nosey and like to see what they bought haha! I have a MAC haul left and thats it for a while! Make sure you let me know if there is anything you would like to see a review on? Or if you have tried any of these products, what do you think?

Ulta Haul! ft NYX, Urban Decay, Maybelline, Kardashian Beauty

So this is the 3rd part of my Florida haul, today I am going to be showing you everything I picked up in Ulta! If you have missed my previous Sephora hauls you can read them here and here.
Ulta Haul
Macadamia Oil Conditioning Treatment - Whilst looking at all the haircare bits, I saw this small sample of macadamia deep repair mask, I haven't tried any Macadamia haircare products before and the Conditioning Mask is expensive so I picked up a small size to try out. I haven't tried this yet but I've heard some good things about this haircare line.

NYX butter gloss in 'Vanilla Cream Pie', 'Maple Blondie', 'Cherry Cheesecake', 'Apple Strudle', 'Peaches and Cream' -  I really wanted to get my hands on these so when I saw them I went a little wild and picked up most of the shades they had! They are nice buttery glosses, not sticky with a decent amount of colour to them and they smell divine! I will do a separate post on these with a more detailed review and swatches! 
NYX Butter Gloss

Urban Decay 'All Nighter' Make-Up Setting Spray - I have heard lots of good things about Urban decays setting sprays. They do a few different types but I picked up the 'All Nighter' which is meant to make your make-up last up to 16 hours. I tried it when I was on holiday and I think it made my make-up last longer but I will have to try it more to really see how it does!
Kardashian Beauty Joystick
Kardashian Beauty En-Joystick 'Sea Coral' - I wasn't really interested in the Kardashian Beauty line, but when I saw the 'Joystick' in 'Sea Coral' I thought I would give it a try and I'm really impressed! The shade is a nice coral, it is a matte lipstick but not drying and the crayon shape makes it very easy to apply.
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil 'Cashmere' -  I haven't tried this yet, but I did swatch it on my hand and it is nice and creamy. You can use this as a base or on it's own as a cream eyeshadow, the shade cashmere is a gorgeous golden shade.

Maybelline Baby Lips 'Peach Kiss' - I picked one of the Maybelline baby lips up on my last visit to the US and while I don't get the hype around them, I do think they are nice. They are moisturising with a hint of colour to them. I got the shade 'Peach Kiss' which is a nude peach shade.

Thats everythingI got in Ulta, as I have said before in my previous posts, I will be reviewing most of these products in more detail soon so do let me know if there is anything you would like to see? Let me know if you have tried any of these products? what do you think?
