American Beauty Haul Part 2: Drugstore!

Hey guys! As promised, here is the drugstore edition of my America haul! If you missed it, you can find the high end edition here.

Like with the high end products, I haven't used most of these yet, as I wanted to come home and take proper photos and stuff first.

I've spoken about the Physicians Formula Mineral Powder Before (review here), and mentioned in one of my posts that I'm just about hitting pan on it, so I picked up two of these in Ulta. I was just going to get one, but some of the Physicians Formula products were going through the scanner and showing really low prices (around $2.50!) so the sales assistant took me back to the stand and told me to pick some more stuff and get the stuff that was going through cheap! In the end I picked up two of these powders, my sister picked up one too, and I picked up the Happy Booster Blush as well.

The Milani Baked Blushes are apparently brilliant, I'd been hearing about them for months on YouTube, and the most recommended shade was always Luminoso, so I picked that up in Walgreens one night. 

I've always heard great things about the Elf Kabuki Brush and the Elf eye brushes, so I picked up the kabuki and a crease brush. The kabuki brush is so incredibly soft! 

I heard about the Jordana Easyliners for Lips through Allura Beauty on YouTube a few months back, and I really loved the look of the brown shades. I used one of these while I was in America (can't remember which one!), underneath a pink toned nude lipstick to tone down the pink a bit. The quality of these are so good, and they're super cheap at only around $2 each! I got the shades Coco Loco and Cabernet. 

Just a few eye products that I've heard great things about (I know, I keep saying that for everything!), I picked up the Elf Eye Primer ($1!), the Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in White, the Milani Liquid Eye Liquid-Like Eye Liner Pencil, the Physicians Formula Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum (what a mouthful!) and some Ardell Lashes.

The Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipsticks launched in the States a few months ago, and for some reason still haven't made their way over to us yet, so I picked one up in the shade Touch Of Spice. Even though Nyx landed on our shores last year, there a some things that haven't made their way over (or at least not in any store near me). The Butter Lipsticks aren't yet available here, so I picked up three, in the shades Hunk, Licorice and Razzle. I don't recall ever seeing the Soft Matte Lip Creams either, so I picked up one in the shade Copenhagen. Lastly, I picked up a Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick in the shade Mochalicious, which I think is a new shade.

Marshalls is great for cheap Essie and OPI polishes (and designer clothes and shoes too!), and I picked up the OPI Peanuts set for only $6 and an Essie polish for around $5! From Ulta, I got some really unique Sally Hansen glitters, they are so pretty and I don't have anything like them in my collection so I had to have them!  I got one of the Fergie Wet n Wild polishes for around $1 in Walgreens, I loved the chunkier gold glitter pieces in it. Lastly, I got the Sally Hansen Salon Gel Polish top coat, not realising you needed one of those gel lamps to use it. I mistakenly thought it was part of their Miracle Gel line, because I'd heard they'd released a top coat in that line and I just didn't read the packaging until I got home. Silly me!

That's all of the drugstore products I picked up in America! I will be testing these out over the next few weeks, and will have reviews up soon!
