.... 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.
