Drugstore Haul + NYX Lip Swatches + Hilary Duff Inspired

I'm sort of on a makeup diet. Well, a high end makeup diet lol. I don't really think I splurge on drugstore makeup much, I usually only buy a few things unlike at the mac counter or something. But it's been since "a rose romance" collection came out (literally the first day) since I've bought anything high end.

Anywho, I went to cvs (I'm sure you can tell by the label) and maybelline mascaras were buy one get on free :) I finally try out the lash stilleto and colossal one! yay, so review/showdown coming soon. (I think I said showdown because of fuz)

I also went to walmart last night to go buy more ram for my old school mac (shown wayyy below) but ended up being DDR instead of SDR which was what I needed. My boyfriend insisted we go look around and insisted I buy something so it won't be a waste of gas xD I love him, haha <3 Definitely excited to try out the pen :) The only other pen style I tried out was the physician's formula one and I LOVED it but I dried out so fast :( So I picked up my HG one in case it does LOL!

Here's the swatches of the lippies stuff from my cherry culture haul :) Hope it's useful and I'm an NC40 so it's probably aroud that area or it's darker since it's my driving arm :X

Top row, left to right.
round glosses: dolly pink, ballerina pink, peach, real nude, natural, amethyst, true red;; lipliners: pinky, coffee, deep purple, plush red, natural
Bottown row, left to right.
round lipsticks: paris, narcissus, b52, cocoa, creamy beige, thalia, eggplant

Here's my entry for Rai's "celeb neutral/smokey eye contest" Check it out if you haven't already :D You have until THIS friday! I think it said a total of 3 pictures including the inspiration. I cam whored just a teensy bit LOL! First few pictures I used a different lipcolor than the rest :P My camera was being a little gay so some might be blurry!

Hilary duff was my inspiration since she always has nice smoke eye makeup :) Poor hilary with her bad veneers, they look oversized!

Trying to pose like her! haha

My lips look super thin right here, and you can see my old school mac :)

I shouldn't have mixed too much light foundation with my dark foundation :P (I have no nose!)

Half face!

Changed the lipcolor up because I thought it wasn't dark enough.. then it was too dark!

Looks a little hazy, I think I could sport this look for the holidays :)

of course I have to finish with my stupd pose :) haha
