YouTube Made Me Buy It! - Drugstore Makeup Haul

Hi Bellas,

So recently I had that itch…you know the kind that takes you to the drugstore to search what’s new in the cosmetic shelves.  YouTube is such a bad influence on my makeup spending habits, lol.  Today I want to show you some items I picked up at Target and Walgreens recently.  There was a tag going around YouTube that talked about what items people were inspired to buy because of watching other gurus and this haul is definitely in that category.  Check it out!

I saw MelisaMichelle talk about this Sonia Kashuk Cream Bronzer as a great cream contour.  I’m close to her skintone so I thought I’d give it a shot.  I have some alternatives like cream sculpting creams by MAC and my darker Graftobian Cream foundations so I’m interested to see how this would turn out.
Finally I saw some of the Fergie for Wet N Wild line.  They never carry it around.  I saw this warm toned eyeshadow palette called Dessert Festival that EmilyNoel from Beauty Broadcast raved about as being great for the fall.  I’m a sucker for these warm tones so I decided to pick it up.  Expect an FOTD soon!  
I also picked up a purple toned Fergie lipstick called Ferguson Crest Cabernet because it looked so gorgeous.
I ran out of my good old Cetaphil moisturizer so I thought i'd give this one by CeraVe a try.  Melmphs on YouTube mentioned it was good for dry skin which is all me. 
 Everyone on YouTube loves RiRi for MAC’s Talk that Talk lipstick and I heard that Wet N Wild’s Cherry Bomb 918D was a good dupe so I also decided to give this a try.  I have a lot of other lipsticks from this line and love them.  
My girl Vanessa from NessasaryMakeup instagrammed some shots of the Rimmel Kohl pencils I eyed in on the neutral cream color.  It’s hard to find nude liners at the drugstore and I love using them on the waterline as an alternative to white.  I picked up two from Rimmel – one for me and one for my kit, score!
I first heard about Jordana Easy Liner Lip Pencils because CarlyBel loves them.  I decided to pick up a few more shades for Fall in deep tones - Coco Loco, Plush Plum, and Terra Kiss.  I think the dark brown might be a good dupe for MAC Chesnut.  Did I mention they’re only $2?  Score!
I also picked up their Jordana 12 hour Made to Last Eyeliner in Black Point because I'm hoping the quality is just as good as the lip pencils.

I’ll be testing these out over the next couple of weeks and if I like them, you’ll see them in tutorials and the next favorites video.  Stay tuned!

Ooh I didn't know there was a dupe for Talk that talk! I missed out on it but I won't be sleeping when her Viva Glam comes out in January!

Good finds at the drugstore. I actually own both cherry bomb and Ferguson Crest Cabernet. I want to try the Sonia k. Bronzer, but idle if it would work for my skintone.

OMG Those lip liners are amazing. Found them at my loca beauty supply for $1. My Walgreens carries the entire Fergie line so I eyed a few more items I want from there. YouTube is the devil on my pockets I swear...
