My Last Drugstore Makeup Haul for a While!

Hi Bellas,

Who's ready for another haul?  I've been really into drugstore makeup lately.  The quality and options have truly come a long way in the last few years.  I found a bunch of great deals at Rite Aid and decided to share with you some of my finds.  Check it out!
Check out the video!

NYC products were all 40% off so I picked up one of my favorite highlighters for just $1.99.  I love the gold shimmery side.  Now that this is a new product I'm hoping i'll love the bronzer as well because my old one had gone hard on me. 

 This Physicians Formula bronzer was a steal at $3.49.  Typically this brand has this priced pretty high around the $12-$15 mark.  The bronzer tones are more yellow that i'm using and depending where you swirl your brush you can get a darker or lighter bronze color.  It's a bit flaky/powdery...I haven't decided whether or not I like this yet.
 This is my first time trying something from the L'Oreal Project Runway line.  For $2.49 I thought this blush was worth a try.  It's a really pretty orangey pink which is very soft and easy to wear.  It comes on with medium pigmentation so you don't have to worry about applying too little or too much.
 These Prestige Total Intensity Liquid Liners appeared to be new and i'm always up for a new liner.  However I was a bit disappointed.  The black one applies a bit streaky and flakes over time.  The purple one is pretty but I think it could also be a bit more opaque.
Swatches - Make sure to shake the bottle to get full pigmentation.  You can see the purple looks more pigmented on the right after I shaked it.
 
I had to pick up more Wet N Wild lipsticks to add to my collection.  I love all 3 shades.
I've wearing #966 in this video and plan on incorporating the other two in future videos.

 Not everything from Prestige's Total Intensity line disappointed me.  This shadow is gorgeous - it is a blue/green duochrome similar to MAC's club eyeshadow.  I plan on using it in an upcoming tutorial and I also have it coming out in an upcoming FOTD.
I've been experimenting with the Wet N Wild lip pencils and for $.99 why not!  I like the colors, they are a little dry but apply pretty well.  The product is a bit lighter than the color on the packaging though.

I saw this Jesse's Girl cream shadow for $.99 and decided to give it a shot.  However, it applies super sheer.  I don't think i'll be picking up anymore of these...I prefer more pigmented bases.


That's it for now.  I'm actually trying not to do anymore makeup hauls till the New York Makeup Show in May since I usually haul big time then.  I do have a MAC Pro Class haul coming up but I had to pay the $100 via a gift card to attend the class.  Other wise, wish me luck on my no makeup buys!

You did good with this haul. I just had my eyes on Physicians Formula bronzer in Target, but I past over it because I wasn't ready to pay $15 for it...lol. I can't believe you got it for $3.49! What a steal. Looks like I need to head to my local Rite Aid :-)
