.... I'm Baaaaaccccckkkk!

Hey guys! Guess who's back? Yes, I know it has been such a very long time but I have finally slowed down in my life enough to take time to post. Hopefully, this can be a jump start to loving my blog again. I just want to start off thanking anyone that continued to look at my blog since my absence... I have been away from my blog dealing with the obstacles that life has put in my path... But, I have a big announcement!!!  [drum roll please] I'm a mommy!! Yes, I am a parent to a little person & it is the best feeling in the world. I will be posting about that soon... I decided to post about my impromptu haul from Walgreens. Let's start the fun!!!!

.... So today after voting (Go Obama!), I took advantage of my prescription run at Walgreens to check out the new Wet n Wild displays and their sales. I was so excited to finally see their holiday displays at my local Walgreens. I was finally able to pick up 2 of the 8 pan palettes. I got Drinking A Glass of Shine (a repromote of the I (heart) Matte palette earlier this year) & Blue Had Me At Hello. I mainly picked up the matte palette because I am a huge fan of matte bright colors. I am primarily drawn to the beige browbone color (I'm looking for a HG browbone highlight) and the teal and green colors. I am so excited to use this. The second palette that I picked up is the Blue Had Me At Hello. I am a lover of blue eyeshadow and this palette had
caught my eye, ever since it was released. I can't wait to try these!!!

While looking at the same display, I saw my old HG eyeliner, the Mega Liner liquid liner. I saw this time that I should choose the brush tip not the felt tip. I am trying to practice my winged liner and this fine brush tip will help me achieve that. I also picked up some glitter that is clear but flashes copper. One word: love. I am very excited to use this Holiday looks, especially with Thanksgiving coming up.

Here is the part that some of you have been waiting for, the Covergirl Lip Perfection lipsticks! I have been lemming these lipsticks since I saw Wifezilla Hekela's blog post on them a while back. I decided to take advantage of the buy one, get one 50% off sale. Plus, I made sure to carry my Covergirl coupon that came in last weeks P&G Saver booklet. It was well worth it. I got Flame & Fairytale. When I swatched them, I was pleasantly surprised on how moist the lipsticks were. Flame is an intense orange-red shade that goes on opaque. Just what I was looking for. I was looking for a dupe of Scarlet Ibis from the Marilyn Monroe collection and I think I got pretty close. Fairytale is a perfect bright pink color wit ha hint of red but no a blue toned red. It is really similar to Viva Glam Nicki but a little bit darker. This will probable be a wearable color for me. I am actually going to head out later and I will be wearing this to test the lasting ability.
All in all, I think I did a pretty good job with my haul. I ended up spending about $25 or so. I definitely deserve it since I have not bought anything in a long time. Well, that's it! I hope you guys enjoyed my little haul and I will look forward to posting again very soon. Let me know what guys think about my haul and what you think of the products.
