CVS Haul & Swatches of the MAC Slimshines I have...

.

Today is President's Day and I don't usually get it off, but for some reason my boss sent a staff email saying we have it off! So I plan on going to the MAC PRO store and picking up a few PRO eyeshadows and pigments, as well as a Lip Erase. In case you are wondering, ANYONE can shop at the MAC PRO store, you do not have to be a member, MAC PRO stores can be scarce, so if you want you can also call the 800 number on www.macpro.com and have items shipped to you for a nominal fee.

The BF and I just stayed at home pretty much all day yesterday which was nice because I have been feeling so burnt out lately with everything since there are so many deadlines to be met, that it was nice to just sleep in and just eat! Eventually around 7pm, we got hungry again and went to dinner, and after dinner we went to CVS. As usual, I can NEVER walk into a CVS without something!

After Kia from Yummy411 mentioned the new Milani wet/dry eyeshadows (which I believe are the same ones Rachel told me about months ago), I had to check them out myself! CVS always has deals, and luckily they had a BUY ONE, GET ONE 50% off deal going on for these eyeshadows!

I also wanted to try Physician's Formula's new Organic Wear, so I bought their tinted moisturizer. It claims to have no harsh chemicals, parabens, synthetic preservatives, colors, or fragrances. It also has SPF15. I have yet to try it on my face, but I tried it on my hand and it looks PROMISING. Of course I will do a product review on it after my testing phase...

Essence of Beauty (my favorite drugstore brushes), has a new brush called the "Blending Brush" and unlike the smaller version of itself, this is much bigger and I think it's great for applying mineral foundation on smaller, hard-to-reach areas such as the under eye and sides of the nose (which I find great difficulty in using a big buffer brush).



The boyfriend took the word "Eye Makeup" TOO LITERALLY! LOL:

And here are the Slimshine swatches I have:

Oh the BOGO. I'm living vicariously through y'all.

So cute your man with the shadows. Hubbo likes to tease me by holding the eyeshadow pots over the garbage in the attempt to toss them out. Booooy does he get it!

Emilee @ GMM said...

The shadows look pretty! What's the color payoff like?

Mama Joy said...

blog hopped! this is cool. i think i should drop here more often :)

Grayburn said...

Ohh, funshine looks very promising! Love the shimmer in it. By the way, I just wrote about staple skincare products and is wondering what your number one ,cannot-live-without-it skincare product is? Would be great if you could leave me a comment and let me know?

Thank you!
Grayburn

Shamrock looks like a really pretty green :) I didn't see the single Milani shadows at CVS when I went yesterday...I may have to stop at another one to see if they have new stuff & take advantage of the sale...

Beauty Review said...

Ugh! Tell me about it! Why can't I just go into CVS to fill my prescriptions? Nope. Everytime I walk into there or Walgreens I walk out with a bag full of makeup.
We have a sickness.

WooOT! It looks so exciting, now I'm in the mood to head over to CVS. =DDD I've been wanting that Essence of Beauty brush for some time now. Does it work well?

I saw those new Milani Minerals products yesterday when I went to CVS to get my BOGOF on my Maybelline mascaras. They only had 2 shades left :( So I'm going to wait and hope they restock this week, if not BUMMER! Are the new Milani blushes any good, I had 2 on my hand then I put them back lol I need to work on my resistant cuz I suddenly have MAC in the membrane and saving every penny for it on my next mini haul LOL I'm sooo poor xD I got Bare, Funshine and Long Stem Rose. I LOVVVVVE Long Stem Rose, it's a beautiful light pink, just gorgeous! I want Urgent! Intimidate looks fab too... I want them all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol <3

vanessa!! i'm so glad you got these! can't wait to see the review and fotd. i just heard about the bogo =/ i'm so sad that my cvs has the new line, but in scarce quantity. what's up with that??? besides that bronze color looks an awful lot like metal x goldspice from the pics. is it true? i'd rather pick up the milani if it does (not the weird creamy formula.) oh slimshines! thanks for the post!

the Muse said...

seriously awesome haul 'nes!

I swear you make me want to go to CVS ! I haven't purchased ds brands in years and years but every time I pop on here the need to purchase these brands overwhelms me hehe!

awesome entry! I'm going to cvs after work to see if I can locate those Milani shadows!

Hey Vanessa, I was wondering since anyone can shop at MAC Pro stores, how come we can't get stuff from macpro.com? Anyway thanks for the tip, I always thought only people with MAC Pro cards could shop there.

Thanks for the info on MAC pro stores... I didn't know the store on Union street in SF had them! So excited.

I've liked Milani products for awhile, they are such a good deal!

shades of hue said...

re: EOB blender brush - I stood along the CVS aisle for like 5 minutes debating whether I should buy it or not - it looks so fab! I eventually passed up on it because I feel I have way too many brushes, but I think you had me lemming for it again!

alien man?! said...

ahahaha <3 your boyfriend is HILARIOUS!! the two of you are SO CUTE

Bionic Beauty said...

Can't wait to hear how you like the Physicians Formula Tinted Moisturizer! I've been looking for the Organic Wear line around here, but haven't seen it out yet (we don't have CVS', only Walgreens). And, well, since I'm a self-confessed Tinted Moisturizer-nut, I'm looking forward to trying this one.
