One of the worst ideas that I come up with when I need to kill a bit of time is walking into the drugstore thinking that I'll only browse for 10 minutes, and then walk out and be on my way to wherever I need to go, emptied handed. Uhmm...yea no. lol. And of course, when you spot those flashy red sale tags on products you've been eyeing for the longest time, you know things are settled and no explanations are needed. Every purchase is now justified.
Maybelline The Falsies Black Drama mascara (waterproof) - $4.93 (original price ~$8.99). Honestly I don't even know how many tubes of The Falsies I've gone through. I know mascaras are a controversial product but this one works well for the necessities of my pathetic short stick straight asian lashes. The new mascaras that have come out on the market recently haven't really sparked my interest to make a change from my usual to try it out.
Revlon Lip Butters - $6.97 (original price ~$9.99+). The two other shades that I've been eyeing for a while from the Lip Butters line is Tutti Frutti and Peach Parfait. From swatches, I really envy other girls with less pigmented lips....I really wanted to like Peach Parfait but unfortunately it just appears to be a splash of glitter particles on my lips that aren't something I'm too fond of for lipsticks. It's not too bad because from afar it looks like gloss but it's an paranoia and annoyance if I know lol. As for Tutti Frutti, it's all within good expectations - a cute pigmented and bright coral/orange shade. I also considered getting Lollipop or a red one but I didn't know which one to pick (Red Velvet, Cherry Tart or Candy Apple) - suggestions anyone? :P
Wet n' Wild Color Icon Palette in Comfort Zone - $3.99. This is not on sale but why would you need one? The original price is already a bargain! Initially, when this first came out I decided not to get it because I thought I didn't *need* it. But being a total sucker to reading a lot of your guys's beauty blogs and the incredibly convincing posts from Sleepandwater and Cherie I caved in when I saw it on the shelf. The shade that I find most unique and eye catching is the definer shade in the bottom right column; the duochrome effect is something I just drool all over for since it's not commonly seen. The eyeshadows are pigmented, soft and buttery as expected since I own two other (older) color icon palettes.
