First off, if you are reading this then I love you, think you're the coolest, and have reserved a special place in my heart for you always!!! That being said, I want to apologize for the somewhat poor quality of some of my pictures. I have having some difficulties with my camera/uploading process, and I am working to fix that ASAP.
Moving on...I went to CVS today to pick up a last minute card for my husband. ( I ended up getting him two cards! One was silly, one was sweet, and I just couldn't decide so the only solution was to get both.) I think it may be physically impossible for me to go into a drugstore without walking down the makeup aisle. I've tried not to, but I always end up there. Today was no different.
I walked out with:
Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation in 160 Fresh Beige
Rimmel Stay Matte in 001 Transparent
Rimmel ScandalEyes in 004 Guilty Grey and 006 Paranoid Purple
L'Oreal Colour Riche Caress Wet Shine Stain (Dude. Ridiculously long name!) in 188 Coral Tattoo

I'm really liking everything so far. I still need to test them out, but the Rimmel ScandalEyes really do last and seem to be pretty smudge-proof and water resistant. I find that most drugstore eyeshadow sticks like the ScandalEyes crease and smear all over on me so I have my fingers crossed that these will be totally awesome. I'm also really liking the Nearly Naked Foundation. It gives a fairly matte coverage that is buildable. I haven't really tested the other two products, but my first impressions of both are positive. I like the color of the gloss (I'm not typing that name out again unless I absolutely have to), but we'll see how it holds up tomorrow.
