Snow Storm Drugstore Haul

This is an older blog entry that I forgot to finish typing!! Doh!!

A few weeks ago there was a major snow storm and the hubby and I decided that we were feeling stir crazy so we went to a drugstore & picked up some snacks & I picked up makeup.

This is what our balcony looked like.

I blogged about seeing these at my local Duane Reed a few weeks ago & I decided to pick them up. I don't really like to wear these alone because they don't blend that well, but I put a bit over my powder blush & I love the glow it gives.

NYC Blushable Creme Sticks in Big Apple Blush & South Street Seashell

I bought this because it reminds me of the Stila Kajal Liner in Taupe. I can't say that it's an exact dupe, but for $4 vs the $18 for the Stila Liner I like it.

Maybelline Cool Effects Eyeliner in Peach Daquiri

Swatches!! - I also bought a Wet N Wild Lipstick in Just Peachy, but I forgot to take a picture.

I've been on the hunt for a red lippie, I was going to go for MAC's Russian Red, but when I saw this I knew I had to try it.
Milani Lipstick in Perfect Red - This lipstick is supposed to be the perfect red for everyone, because it adjusts to your skin tone. I personally didn't notice any changes to the color when I applied it. What really sold me at first thought was the packaging, so pretty & elegant.

This lipstick is really moisturizing & leaves your lips with a glossy shine, it also stays on for a really long time.

I recently did a blog entry titled Retro Lady, which I used this color.
I'm still not sold that this is the perfect red for me -  I like it,  but I think I would prefer a matte red.


  1. Great haul!! I do that all the time, I never finish writing my blog posts, haha

    The red looks great!

    My lips are too small to use a matte red =/

  2. still not SOLD? its so pretty on you!! :) Hope you are doing fine gorgeous!! ^_^

  3. Oh crap, that red is hot on you!

    Those blushes look awesome, too.

  4. Nice haul! The lippie looks great on you :)

  5. Damn that's snow!! Well at least you guys were able to get out! :)

    ohh... pretty!! Thanks for doing all the swatchies!! And I think the red lippie is gorg on you! So very old hollywood glam!

  6. i think the red looks good on you - i have russian red and it feels just a weeeee bit too dry on my lips, but it's ok with some gloss over it. maybe a peach or pink gloss on top of the milani red would get it closer to russian red?

  7. Isn't it crazy that a month ago we were covered in snow and this weekend we were sweating our asses off? LoL

    You look gorgeous in that retro pic!

  8. and that red is delicious on you!

  9. oooooooooooooooh those blushes look nothing short of super special and divine!!!
