Another mini makeup haul...

This week, I decided to check out the buy 1, get 1 free sale on L'Oreal cosmetics that every drug store in town is having this week. One of my resolutions for this year is to get more and more into makeup, because I'm the type to just put on some lip gloss and that's it. Anyway, I went over to Walgreens and grabbed a couple of the HIP eyeshadow duos in Reckless, Gilded, and Platinum, and some True Match Super Blendible powder.




Earlier this week, I was in CVS and browsed their makeup section. They had clearance on makeup from 50-75% off. I bought a few CG EyeSlicks for $3 each.



CG EyeSlicks in Cat's Eye, Glistening Gold, and Pewter.

Cute colors! I keep saying that I want to experiment more w/ make-up. I need to stop making excuses about not having enough time in the mornings.

I have reckless, it's not as vibrant as you would think.
Gotta cake it on... kinda fades.

I want that Platinum. Good finds though.

@Rai- did you use eye primer? i know that sometimes make the eyeshadow stay put and brings out the true color of the shadow

@Fabulously Broke- I will try to do a review and post it. I've ordered some new makeup brushes and I'm trying to master this whole makeup thing. I'm still an amateur, lol.

I'm glad you got your haul in. Look I have a link to share with you. It holds the LIST of marked and unmarked clearance cosmetics in CVS. Owwww! I'll send it tomorrow (have to find it.) The makeup gets better...maybe. LOL Anywho, Congratulations on cashing in. Let me know how you like the True Blend and what color you picked. I'm thinking of giving it a try...it's just that MAC has a hold on me.
I have 28 HIP Duos, 2 cream shadows, 7 loose pigments, 5 cream crayons, 1 lip gloss, 2 lipsticks, 2 pigment sticks, 4 jelly balms, and 2 cream eyeliners. You know my collection isn't complete.

Rai I would use a primer and a black base for Reckless. This is the only one I have play around with...so far.
I have also used a White, Pink, and Grey base. It depends on the look, I'm trying to achieve. Those jumbo NYX crayons are awesome!
