Wal-Mart Haul

I picked up a few little jems on my last Wal-Mart run that I thought I'd share with you even though I'm happy with about 1 out of 4 purchases haha!:

 -Maybelline Fit Me Blush in "Medium Coral"
I still had a coupon for any Maybelline Fit Me product from my lovely little Wal-Mart samples, so since I already had the foundation I decided I wanted to try these blushes! I have to say thumbs up for Maybelline on the packaging for this line, its much sleek-er than any other drugstore brands I've seen. I'm kind of kicking myself over buying this because when I got home I realized it looks an awful lot like my Wet N Wild Color Icon Blusher in "Mellow Wine" that I just bought in a Rite Aid Haul with a tad more pink. But hey, shame on you Wal-Mart, you should have had a bigger color selection

-L'oreal Wear Infinite Studio Secrets Professional Eyeshadow in "Autumn Leaves" for Blue Eyes
First off, I'd like to point out how much of a mouthful that is in case you didn't already notice! I know L'oreal's H.I.P. eyeshadows are supposed to be really good, but I leaned towards this since it was on sale and I had a coupon. I liked the colors of this quad in the store since they look really bronze-y, I figured I could get away with a lot of summer looks using these shadows. But I must say, I've only used these eyeshadows once and am kicking myself again, they're pretty terrible (chalky, hard to blend, not pigmented)! Sheesh, it just wasn't my day at Wal-Mart, but you win some and you lose some

-St.Ives Fresh Skin Make-Up Remover & Facial Cleanser
I'm on such a St.Ives kick after loving their Apricot Scrub! I saw this on the St.Ives website and really wanted to get it since I don't have a makeup remover and I've never really heard much about this one from the beauty community. I've had the chance to use this a couple of times, and I love it so much I'm beginning to think I should try all the St.Ives products!The only issue I had is this one particular cleanser was super hard to find, I looked at least three different places before coming across this one, and it was the last on the shelf

 -Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Jumbo Lash Mascara in "Black Organics"
 If you haven't already heard about the Physicians Formula $5 coupon going around, get it now! I honestly didn't think I would get any use out of that coupon since all Physicians Formula products are pretty expensive, but if you really look through their stuff you can get away with $1.00 and $2.00 items. Plus that coupon can be printed as many times as you want, and its good until June 15, 2011, so stock up and keep them in your wallet. Wal-Mart didn't have a great selection of the cheaper Physicians Formula products (go to Rite Aid if you want some super good values) but this mascara was there for $8.00, which means I got it for a steal $3.00 and that's a good value for any mascara let alone Physicians Formula! I've heard nothing but good things about this since people who went to the Beautylish event got it in their gift bags. I'm excited to try this out, but I'm a little bummed I got it in the color "Black Organics" and not "Ultra Black Organics" but there's probably no noticeable difference


  1. Nice haul! I've heard many great things about the Physicians Formula mascara.

  2. @EveryDay Makeup blog Thanks! Yes me too, I'm excited to try it out!

  3. just wondering if u tried cetaphil? which one is better st ives cleanser or cetaphil? thanks :D

  4. @aMz88 Yes! I actually use Cetaphil at the moment for my daily facial cleanser. I think I prefer the Cetaphil just because it doesn't have such a strong scent as the St.Ives cleanser, and Cetaphil actually removes my makeup more than the St.Ives one, which is weird because the other one is supposed to be a makeup remover!

    If you're on a budget I'd just go with the St.Ives cleanser because it's about $3 and Cetaphil is pretty pricey at about $8.

    If you have any other questions about Cetaphil or other cleansers feel free to ask, I love to talk about skincare :)!

  5. Thank you for the reply :D i really appreciate it ;) i was going to buy cetaphil for oily skin but its only available for $10 =_= so i think im going to buy the small one for all skin types :P
    i have oily skin :(
    but i like using st ives to exfoliate hmm do u think using:
    cetaphil as cleanser
    and st ives as exfoliator is a good idea? im currently using st ives apricot scrub :)
    i ran out of my etude cleanser hehe

  6. @aMz88 No problem :) I also have oily skin and I think you should just try another cleanser. I only use Cetaphil because my dermatologist told me to, but I think its a little TOO gentle so my skin gets oily-er (not to mention its quite expensive)!
    I do LOVE using the St.Ives scrub as an exfoliator every other day, I think it really helps to keep my skin clear and get rid of some discoloration!
    So that sounds like a good plan, I would just find another cleanser that isn't as expensive and that was made for oily skin.

  7. i bought cetaphil for all types of skin the small one gosh its bringing out my zits more out O_O its suppose to do that i guess but its bothering me hehe so i bought just yesterday St Ives cleanser apricot for acne and black head ^^ i hope it works
    Thank you so much for the comments :D
