Here is my recent Shoppers Drug Mart haul. The usual always happens when I go in there. I stop in for diapers, cotton buds, or a prescription and I come out with that plus makeup. Somehow I always end up 'just having a quick peak'. I can count on one hand how many times I've walked into Shoppers and left without taking a peak.
I bought two lipsticks from Rimmel, one is called Celeb and the other in Just So. Its spring and I was in the mood for Pink, the shade Just So is the darker of the two and its beautiful. I have actually mixed this lipstick with a highlighter and a drop off bronzer and applied to the cheeks of bridesmaids for a wedding gig that I did recently. It looked gorgeous. I'm wearing the Rimmel Shade in Just So in the first picture at the top. The picture does not show the lipstick's true colour which is a little more pigmented. You can see it better on my hand in the other pic (on my hand its the above swatch, Celeb swatch is below)
The other items are a Gel Bronze Sheer Translucent Color Oil Free from Bonne Bell, in Golden Tan. I use this in the summer as a mixing medium, works every time. To top it off if I really want to look fabulosa then I add a hint of Bonne Bell's Glimmer Bronze in Gold'n'Glitz on the top of my cheek bone with a fan brush. When I say a hint, I mean a hint or else you'll look like a shiny disco ball. Next to Bonne Bells Dr. Pepper LipSmacker which is a staple in my makeup bag these items are a must for me. I use them on myself and for makeup gigs depending on the look. Both products are very versatile and are under $10, making them very affordable.
The next item is from Annabelle which is a cosmetic line exclusive to Canada. The gloss I purchased from Annabelle is Le Gloss Lip Shine in Breathless Souffle. There glosses are pretty good and inexpensive. I'm wearing the gloss in the second picture from the top.
The last item I've swatched on the top of my cheek is the Revlon Beyond Natural Concealer and Highlighter in shade 310 light-medium. I don't really care much for the concealer but the highlighter is a transparent gloss that is sheer and very Sarah Jessica Parker in Sex in the City.
Hope you enjoyed this haul and swatch. I've been ill for the last three days and its taken its toll on me, excuse my sleepy expressions, I'm still on the mend. Also, if you haven't noticed already the background in these pics is weird because I'm in the middle of a large renovation and we're trying to keep the dust contained to one area so everything is sectioned off with plastic. So, if you were wondering why my background looks like a scene from HBO's Dexter, this is why.
Thanks for stopping by. xx
