Drug Store Haul and First Impressions

Two days ago,  I took a trip to Walgreens and purchased the L'Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion, Wet n Wild coloricon blush in Rose Champagne and Wet n Wild Foundation Brush.  

I've used and enjoyed the True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Foundation and I definitely had to try the Cushion. I fell in love with it! First off the packaging is gorgeous and compact! My skin looked beautiful, flawless and natural. It didn't look shiny or greasy. Unfortunately, I had to return it! The shade I purchased (W3 Nude Beige) was light on my skin and if I went any higher it was too dark for me. I really hope they come out with more shades. Such a bummer!

I didn't fret because just when that happened my eyes saw that Wet n Wild has their Spring 2016 line out with new formulas.  I was actually surprised to see that they re-formulated their blushes.  I own Mellow Wine and Pearlescent Pink and appreciate them both. Deeply pigmented, easily blendable and affordable! Rose Champagne is one of their newest blush options.  I absolutely adore this shade and the new formulation, it is silky-smooth and build-able. This could also be used as a highlight, but I love the look it gives me. I think you will too! It goes with the latest makeup trend, the "no makeup" makeup look.

Last, I decided to use the brush to paint the Cushion foundation on my face. My thoughts are it applies like a brush twice its cost and it's soft, pretty and affordable. A girl can never have too many brushes!

Happy New Year Everyone!! I hope you all had a great one! This is my first post for 2016 and I'm excited to share with you a few products I added to my collection and here are my first impressions and swatches.

You gotta love Ulta's end of the year discounts! I took advantage of the 20% off and ordered myself the Tartelette In Bloom. Walgreens is having a BOGO 1/2 off, I got 3 of the Vivid Matte Liquid colors that stood out to me. The Balm Cosmetic Mary-Lou Manizer is tough to get and I got luck this week to get one at Kohls! 
Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid 
I got Nude Thrill, Berry Boost and Fuchsia Ecstasy. The colors are pigmented. It goes on smooth, but doesn't dry down to a matte finish. Its more like a Demi-Matte finish and creamy. It didn't dry out my lips or bleed, currently I am into the dry matte lippies and I was really hoping for that effect. The name is deceiving. If you love the NYX Intense Butter Glosses then you will appreciate this. 
Tarte Tartelette 2 In Bloom Amazonia Clay Palette
I am in love with this palette!! This reminds me so much of the Tartelette Palette but with 3 luster (shimmery) finishes.
The shadows are creamy, pigmented and blend-able. Perfect for everyday or bold looks! A must have! I also recommend the OG Tartelette Palette!
theBalm Cosmetics Mary-Lou Manizer
I've seen this product everywhere and now I completely get why this is a favorite!! I am so glad I finally own it! It is so versatile and this honey luminizer is amazing on any skin type. You can wear this as an eye shadow, shimmer and highlighter. I can't get over how beautiful it is! Definitely a must have!
I hope you enjoyed! I'll be working on posting once a week. I can't guarantee the day, but you can count on that! I want to wish you all a blessed new year with health, happiness and prosperity in all you do! Thank you so much for all your love and support! Cheers to 2016!!
