Drugstore Makeup Haul

(wow, yes a haul!)

This is me, trying to blog on my phone. A warning though, pictures are slightly blurry because my phone is very... let's say used and not broken, haha.

I used the app nostalgio for the frames & you can somewhat see my boyfriend playing battlefield 3 in the background. On my nails are Deborah Lippman's Across the Universe (which is not at all what it looks like in real life!)

Err, I really didn't want to haul because I ended up spending $25 (which if you've followed my past few posts I'm trying to save money) but my mascara was getting old and so was my eyeliners. If it weren't bothering me at all I would've have replaced it just yet but I can feel my eyes getting itchier than normal... it has to be the mascara & eyeliner, yes??

I also grabbed some hair ties which I didn't photograph because everyone knows what they look like and there's only so common. (Although I did see some new rubber types there but they didn't seem promising.)

Here's the few items I picked up!
 Maybelline Master Precision Liquid Liner in Black, $6.44 @ Walmart
I picked this up because I was watching stylesuzi's video a while back and she swears by this liner! I didn't even know maybelline made a pen liner so I had to pick it up and try it :) I still like the physician's formula one I was using (mentioned in this post) but that one is almost twice the cost of this one at walmart so I passed for the time being. I mean, if someone's raved about it before it must be a decent product right??

Nexxus Pro-Mend Split End Binding Leave-In Treatment, $9.47 @ Walmart
I ended up splurging on this item. I didn't mean to but the boyfriend said "anything else you want to look at?" and I quickly thought... split end repair! I've been struggling with my hair splitting like it's never done before. I even chopped off 3 inches from every layer yet I can still see splitting! My hair has never been in this condition which I'm thinking it happened over the summer from washing my hair too frequent and using a 2-in-1 shampoo at my boyfriend's place and then constant styling and Texas heat without applying treatment first. I'm not hoping for this to miraculously repair my split ends up hopefully do something to them!
Rimmel Scandal Eyes Mascara in Extreme Black, $5.47 @ Walmart
It was between this and a few maybelline mascaras! Maybelline hasn't been impressing me much the past year with their mascaras (they're all okay and all, just not "wow" worthy) so I decided to give Rimmel another chance! I'm hoping this will make my lashes super dark and give some moderate length and volume.

Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm in Peach Kiss, $2.97 @ Walmart
This product has been out since forever! I didn't realize how inexpensive it is compared to the Revlon Lip Butters, which I love but don't wanna pay full price for. If I end up liking this I may go and get some of the bolder shades since I hear it's quite pigmented and it'd be perfect for an informal everyday bold lip :)

Has anyone tried these products, and if you have what are your thoughts on them?


I really wanted to do a halloween look for y'all but I ended up not doing much for halloween and staying home, studying for tests so hopefully next year when I expect to be finished with school!

Until next time!


  1. The brush of the Scandal Eyes Mascara looks super gigantic! Hope it works well for you!

    I have to agree with you on Maybelline mascaras, when I started wearing makeup I bought them because they were among the cheapest at the drugstore but since going cruelty-free, I don't even miss them since none really did something special for my lashes.

  2. I haven't tried any of these but I have been meaning to try the maybelline lip balm. You'll have to let me know how it is!

  3. @ Gaby; It's super gigantic and gets mascara on my eyes but maybe I'm not used to it? Nothing major I can't fix if I'm not in a rush! Maybelline is continuing to disappoint me now, oh well :P

    @ Vanessa; the lipbalm isn't ALL THAT for me because I have super dry lips, but I think they'd be suitable for normal people :)


Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the web!
