CVS Haul

.

So since CVS was having a buy one get one free sale, I had to stop by after work despite the fact that it is raining and hailing where I live...

I also took pics of the new makeup stands they have, Milani is coming out with a lot of AWESOME products such as mascara, eyebrow kits, brush on foundation, and more! I was so surprised because LUMINOUS blush is back and better than ever! It was discontinued by Milani (I have the old discontinued version), but the new one comes in a compact with a mirror and a brush! Since I was worried they might take it out again, I bought a new one for my purse!

Sally Hansen also came out with a nailpolish pen, haven't tried it yet (I got hot pink), but im iffy about the brush...doesn't seem like it would do the job. I also got L'Oreal HIP Pigments since they were also buy one get one free, I bought "Unashamed" and "Progressive". "Unashamed" looks like MAC Pigment in "Gold Stroke" so that is being added to the dupe list.... :)

Neutrogena also has these eyeshadow kits that can help many of you who are new to makeup, they have one color for the base (all over eyeshadow), and another color that goes just above the crease to make your eyes pop!











Sally Hansen Nailpolish Pen


The brush tip:


To dispense the nailpolish, you must push down the agitator (similar to an asthma inhaler):


Swatches, see how similar it looks to "Gold Stroke"?!


Gotta have my pinkberry!


Back to makeup! [sorry they are huge, but just so you can see the detail!]

I read somewhere that Milani's blush in Luminous is a dupe of NARS orgasm blush. I havent compared for myself because I havent tried Luminous yet. Do you have the NARS blush to compare?

Mrs. Lynne said...

How exciting for Milani! Guess I'll have to run on over to K-Mart to have a look. Nice haul sis!

che said...

wow im excited that luminous is back! mine was running out so i was trying to figure out what to do. even better is that it's mineral blush! very cool that it comes with a brush and mirror too. oh, and i just saw that theres a site for mac fafi updates... so if you haven't seen it already... http://www.maccosmetics.com/fafi/

Vanessa said...

Haha yeah Che it's coming back! And yeah I already posted details earlier for Fafi sign ups (above this post)!

Thanks for all the fun display photos!

Also, I'm a little weary when it comes to that nail polish brush. It looks like I would get it all over my fingers since it looks hard to "paint within the lines".

Let us know how it works!

Linda said...

i couldn't find any of those shippers there!! i want the blush so bad! and now i want to try the eyebrow kit too.

mayaari said...

Nice haul nessa :) Thanks for your tip about the Milani blush - I picked one up at CVS after work!

yummy411 said...

yay drugstore makeup porn! LOL... they brought back luminous as a mineral powder hahah with new packaging! great! i didn't mind the smaller one. they added 2-3 dollars for the bulky packaging =/ i'm excited to see the new stuff though! thanks for sharing!

LS said...

I won't be able to get to CVS until tomora, bummer. Hope there's still some good buys left for me. Thanks for the semi-virtual tour Vanessa!

Bella said...

Hey there...thanks for the post, I went to CVS right after work but it didn't carry much (none of your pics) which CVS did you go to? I went to Duarte and El Monte and both were hardly stocked...they didn't have any of the mineral stuff.

Thanks...bella23000@yahoo.com

I'm so damn proud of Milani. They've come a hell of a long way indeed.

oh man thanks for putting up this post! I'm so glad Milani put back the Luminous into their products list! and it looks so much better that it has the mirror and the brush too! awesome awesome! sadly my cvs's and walgreens seem to not carry much milani--no eyeshadow singles or blushes--only glimmer stripes, lip & face products.

i'll definitely keep an eye out for luminous.

Wow, the new Milani products look great! I'll have to stop by CVS one of these days and take a look.

Vanessa said...

Hey Sheila- I do not own the NARS blush in Orgasm, but I have swatched it before when I was in Sephora, and it does look pretty similar (and a lot cheaper!)

Izzy (MUSE)- I am starting to do the opposite and go BACK to drugstore brands! LOL!

Anonymous- Not sure if Hayden is the new face for Milani, I know she did some Neutrogena gigs...

LS- Anytime gal! You welcome! :)

Stephie said...

Marie Andree said...
