Walgreens - Drugstore Makeup Haul

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another haul.  I actually filmed this in early December for going on my Winter vacation to Puerto Rico and Iowa.  I show you some fun travel stuff I bought and off course some great drugstore makeup deals.

Check out the video!

I have a good amount of hair so I'm always looking for little gadgets to keep it out of my face.  These little pins are the old school ones you used to see but they have a 3 prong hook in the back to hold back more hair.  I used them in Puerto Rico and they're pretty good.  One fell off when I was playing at the beach but those waves were intense lol.  I like how they come in various hair colors.

Now that my hair is darker, I'm experimenting with darker brow colors.  I purchased this Milani Brow Fix kit in Brunette since I love the lighter one already.  I actually find that these brow colors were a little off...still good pigmentation and super smooth though.  However, I'm officially a redhead now as of this weekend so I'm going to give them another go.

I totally caved and bought this As Seen on TV Neck pillow.  I always need something like this on a plane or car ride.  It works not a must-have though. 
Again, I'm experimenting with brow products.  I got this after seeing Tatiana Ward aka BeatFaceHoney on YouTube use it.  Honestly though, I'm not a fan of either the pencil or gel side.  Skip!
I just had to try out some of the new Wet N Wild Color Icon Mineralized Palettes.  These colors are right up my alley.  I have an upcoming post on this soon.
I was super excited to see that they also had the Wet N Wild Matte palette available.  I had heard it was hard to get a hold of.  I'm a huge fan of the Vanity Palette already.  After playing with this I'd say it was okay...not a must-have though.  The colors didn't seem as pigmented to me as the Vanity Palette series.
Hope you guys enjoyed my haul!  I have another drugstore makeup haul coming soon but wanted to get this one out of the way lol.  Have you tried any of these products?  Let me know in the comments below!

I've tried the Revlon brow pencil/gel. I hate the pencil, but the gel works great for me. I've actually fell asleep with this gel over my eyebrow pencil & powder and it was still in tact when I woke up!

Have you tried the Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadows? I've been hearing alot of hype about these being compared to MAC's paint pots. I recently bought 7 of the 10 colors but haven't tested them yet.

for some reason ive found that tinted gels in general just don't work for me but that's just a personal preference...haven't tried the tattoo shadows yet but everybody seems to be loving them!

I wish your Walgreens was out here where I live. It seems to have better section of makeup than mines. I have yet to found the Wet 'n Wild baked collection. I'm glad to see that I am not the only person that hates the Revlon brow pencil/gel.
