Walgreens & Rite Aid Haul

So I spent my Saturday doing a little drugstore shopping while the rest of Massachusetts was preparing for hurricane Irene!

I was honestly more worried about the large spider that decided to make its new home in the lamp above my bed (and the general increase of those vile creatures in my room...) than the hurricane. I've been through my fare share of terrible weather in the past so not much phases me anymore! Other than a mass amount of flooding, nothing much happened in my area, but I hope everyone else made it through safe and sound!

Anyways, I took advantage of Walgreens' 40% off Revlon sale and Rite Aid's 40% off Wet N Wild sale.


Revlon ColorStay Combination/Oily Skin in 220 Natural Beige
Price: $8.09

I've come to the conclusion that I desperately need more coverage than a powder foundation gives, but something that still has oil control properties. I've heard nothing but fab things about Revlon foundations in general, so the 40% off sale was just extra incentive to try it out! I will say though the shade selection was a little weak, a lot of the colors had yellow undertones, but 220 Natural Beige seems like it will be a good match for my N5-NW20 skin.

Clean & Clear Boost Mango & Papaya Morning Burst Body Wash
Price: $.99

This was one of those things that caught my eye as I was checking out with its lovely neon orange packaging (damn those strategically placed items...). I already have the little sample size of the blue Splash body wash (not my fave, review of that coming up) so I thought I'd give this one a chance since I'll be needing a little body wash when I go to visit my dad for 10 days in a couple of weeks. I'm very pleased with my impulse purchase since this smells absolutely divine!

Rite Aid:

 Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color in Think Pink
Price: $1.79

I've been trying to get into more pink makeup instead of sticking to my trusty corals, so I thought I'd give this lipstick a try while it was on sale! I have since tried it out and think its total rubbish! The damn cap was pretty much screwed on, so that was a battle in itself, but then I tried to twist the lipstick bullet up and it wouldn't budge...completely fail in the packaging department Wet n Wild. When I did manage to get the color on my lips it looked rank, totally splotchy and cakey.

Wet n Wild Color Icon Blusher in Pearlescent Pink
Price: $1.79

I have the other 3 Wet n Wild Color Icon Blushers and adore them, so it only made since to pick up the only one I don't have! I think this is going to make a great summer to fall transition color since it does have some brown in it but still a nice amount of shimmer.

Wet N Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio in Walking on Eggshells
Price: $1.79

Everyone and their mother raves about the Wet N Wild eyeshadow trios, so I thought it was about time I jumped on the bandwagon! I bought all of the neutral trios since I knew I just wouldn't use any of the ones with the brighter shades. I have yet to open any of these, but the colors looking stunning!

Wet N Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio in I'm Getting Sunburned
Price: $1.79

Just look at that absolutely gorgeous gold shade! That color alone justifies picking up this palette, and apparently I'm not the only one who thinks so because this was the last trio on the shelf. I'm a little bummed to just be getting this now towards the end of the summer, it would have been nice to rock a golden lid in June/July, but whatever, it'll transition to fall and this make a great shade for Christmas party eyes!

Wet N Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio in Silent Treatment
Price: $1.79

The last neutral Wet n Wild trio, I'm excited to experiment with this one because I've never worn taupe colored shadows, I'm curious to see how they'll look with my brown eyes! I don't really understand why Wet n Wild likes to include that pink "brow bone" shade with a lot of their trios? Pink shadows don't really appeal to me, I kinda wish they would just put the classic white!


  1. I love the Wet N Wild trios. I was weary about the pink brow bone shade, as well, but turns out I liked it. I think because I am so fair skinned, it doesn't really show up super pink.

  2. All of those WNW palettes looks gorgeous!

  3. I love the WNW trio in Walking on Eggshells and the blusher in Pearlescent Pink! I use that blusher all the time. It's a great color, but very pigmented.

  4. I like most WNW Trio in Walking on Eggshells ;)

  5. i need to get my hands on some more wet and wild products<3

  6. love those wnw trios! I want to try the lip colors next =)

  7. You did the right thing by buying the wet n wild color trios! You won't regret it! Those are the best ever! Seriously, I can't say enough nice things about them. I need to buy myself more, hopefully my CVS will be selling the sunburn one you bought because that's soo pretty and would be perfect for wearing to school!!

  8. Wow... I hate spiders...
    Shopping, shopping, I love shopping ;)

  9. Great haul.

    The Wet & Wild eyeshadow trios look really pretty.

  10. An eyecatcher indeed, that Clean & Clear Boost. I would buy that too! :D

  11. WnW for $1.79!!!
    Why are make up so much cheaper in the US?!
