Friday Night Makeup Haul! :)

Who says Walgreens isn't a good time on a Friday night? :) 
Tyler and I went out to Chili's and then stopped in at Walgreens so he could look for some all-important floss picks and I could scope out the new makeup. 
L'oreal products were "Buy 1 Get 1 50% off" - so I took advantage of that! All of the items I picked up are things I've never tried before! 


The haul...

  • Ardell Double Up False Lashes #202... As you know, I love a good "drag queen lash" so these extra full lashes seemed to be right up my alley. They're longer on the outsides & super thick all over. I'll let you know how they work! 
  • Maybelline Porcelain Collection Lipstick in Afternoon Tea... There were only two of these special limited edition lipsticks left in the display, and after hearing some rave reviews, I decided to pick one up! The cap also has a unique feel... not the slick plastic you typically find. This one seemed like an everyday wearable neutral that's not "erase your lips" nude. 
  • L'oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Smoldering Plum... After LOTS of questions about these Infallible eyeshadows- I finally decided to test one out! I'm not sure if this shade is limited edition or not- since it was in a special display. It almost seems like a loose pigment that is tamped down with a little stopper-type thingy... so it's made into more of a pressed color. They claim to wear for 24 hrs. This shade seemed to be a spitting image of my beloved MAC Beauty Marked- so I thought it'd be a safe pick!
  • L'oreal True Match LUMI Healthy Luminous Makeup in True Beige... I was trying to decide between this and the new L'oreal BB Cream that was sitting nearby- but I figured I'd go with something that might offer a little more coverage & that I can hopefully get use out of for my daily news makeup. I have several new foundations I'm trying now-- Revlon Colorstay Whipped and Neutrogena's shine control makeup. I'll keep you posted on how they work. I haven't so much as swatched this new L'oreal one yet- so I'm not sure what to expect!
  • L'oreal Colour Riche Lipsticks in Rose Taffeta and Pink Chashmere... As you can see- the packaging on these lipsticks is a bit different from the normal Colour Riche- and I can't remember the specific type these are- if you know, tell me! :) They're super creamy & seem like they'll be rather moisturizing! 

 Swatches of the lipsticks I picked up-- Maybelline Afternoon Tea, L'oreal Rose Taffeta, L'oreal Pink Chashmere

A closer look at the Infallible eyeshadow in Smoldering Plum...

Just as I thought- it looks a LOT like MAC Beauty Marked. Gorgeous plum with burgundy shimmer.

I also Instagrammed (emilynoel83) an outfit of the night! It's a dress I got from JC Penney a couple years ago... it has a built in bra AND a necklace-looking halter top! Woop woop! The sandals have a small wedge & are from Kohl's. The jeans jacket is from the Gap. As far as the makeup- here are a few key items... I used The Balm's Shady Lady palette, Kiss #03 falsies, The Balm Down Boy blush, and lips are L'oreal Project Runway lipstick in Sultry Raven's Pout (limited edition) and Bare Escentuals Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Stick in Tokyo to add just a little depth & definition. 

Daily Nuggets...
  • There's a new Shopping List Ideas video!
  • I am SO glad it's Friday. Chillin' on the couch drinking some Pinot Grigio. 
  • Tyler & I compromised... he's watching US Open Golf, but has the volume down so I can play whatever music I want. 
  • Wanna hear some of my favorites on my ipod right now?! :)
    • Beggin' -Phillip Phillips- American Idol
    • Didn't You Know How Much I Loved You- Skylar Laine- American Idol 
    • The Wanted- Chasing the Sun
    • We Run the Night- Havana Brown feat. Pitbull 
    • Fly Over States- Jason Aldean
    • Lights- Ellie Goulding
    • Too Close- Alex Clare
    • 1901- Phoenix

  7. I sampled some type of L'oreal primer that was in the display with the new foundation you purchased. I don't even remember what it was I was just astonished there was a tester out in Walgreens. On to the point, I noticed after I had been to the lake (in it as well) that the primer swatch was still perfectly intact on my hand.

  13. I LOVE theL'Oreal infallible eyeshadows - so much so that I am happy to pay the $22 each they cost here (Sydney) and have almost every colour. I do find they need to be applied with the finger rather than a brush to work though.

  14. I absolutely love Walgreens! Any day, anytime... it's a joke in my family & with my friends how much I love Walgreens - Lol They always quote me as saying "You can anything you need or want at Walgreens!" I have been stalking our Walgreens for 3 weeks now for the LE Maybelline lipsticks, the new L'Oreal Infalliable eyeshadow colors & now the new Lumi foundation. Mine is truly falling behind...UGH!!

  15. I agree with Kate M the L'oreal shadows do apply better with the finger. My fav colors are Bronzed Toupe and Amber Rush. There is a limited edition gold color that is absolutely beautiful. Looks like real gold on the eyes! ;) Can't wait to see what you think about them.

  16. I totally agree Emily, Friday night at Walgreens is a good time. I desperately miss going to my Fort Waynne Walgreens when I lived in Indiana, but a brand new Rite Aid is coming in, minutes from me, here in Southeastern PA. They should have alot of goodies to buy when I need a makeup night out. LOL

  22. I'm really interested in a review of the L'oreal lipsticks. I saw them at the store and couldn't decide if I wanted them or not.
    A trip into a drugstore to pick up "one thing" for me usually means my boyfriend texting me not to buy anything else other than just that one thing. I can usually get away with at least one impulse purchase.
