CVS Drugstore Makeup & Nail Polish Haul

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another haul!  I picked up some items from CVS before Christmas.  It was my present to myself!  I picked up some items that I really love!
Check out the video!  Sorry If I seem super tired in it, lol, cuz I was!

I had seen other YouTubers review the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Foundations and I was sold!  I purchased both Honey and Tan and find that I'm right in the middle of the two.  I use honey on the inner portion of my face and Tan on the outer rim and then blend them together.  I actually have a drugstore foundation tutorial coming soon.  I love the light, super blendable consistency and have been wearing these foundation consistently for the last month.  I'm a bit disappointed though that Tan is the darkest shade...hopefully they expand the shade range.
This Cheek Trio in Apricot really intrigued me.  I had seen my girl Milly from BeautyLogicBlog review the Salma Hayek Nuance Cosmetic line before and I was intrigued.  This trio reminded me a lot of my beloved MAC Pearlmatte face powder.  I prefer to wear it all swirled together for a peachy bronzy shimmery cheek color that is actually more subtle but still shows and looks nice.  I also like using the pans individually.  You get a nice amount of color and can actually fit a small blush brush in each triangle.  The packaging is a bit bulky but you can tell this won't break!
I just love glitter nail polishes!  The pink one on the left "A Cut Above" is super gorgeous.  I love how the glitter is large and different chunks including circular glitter.  It looks great on my toes on top of a hot pink polish.  The gold one on the right "As Gold as It Gets" is a lot more subtle...more of a fine shimmer but it is very pretty as well...especially topped over another color.
This is a white nail polish with a thin art pen.  It's great for nail art designs.  I had bought it for a Christmas Hat nail polish look but my skills were not up to par, lol.  I also picked up a Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen in White.  I'm not really sold on these pens...I feel like the consistency is a bit watery.
I got two shades - medium and honey.  I wish I had gotten the yellow corrector but the CVS I went to didn't have it.  The medium is actually nice for a highlight.  I notice that these on their own aren't enough coverage for me so I use a salmon corrector first and then put this on top to brighten.  Honey is more of a spot corrector for me for my skintone.
This gloss is pretty nice.  It's the perfect peachy nude and it's buildable so you can actually see the color.  It's got a nice sweet taste too.
Hope you guys enjoyed the haul!  Since them I've went back and done a haul of the Revlon lip butters.  But everyone has those now, lol.  I will say that I really love them and if you do want to see a video on them, let me know!
