Haul: Drugstore Makeup

I was at Wal Mart a few week ago, (this post is just super late) and of course I ended up in make up section. The Wal-Mart location I was as at happened to be pretty quiet, so I was able to find quiet a few things I had been wanting to try.

The first thing I got is a Wet & Wild Color Icon palette in 335 Silent Treatment. After hearing all the hype surrounding them on YouTube and other blogs, I thought I would give them a try.And they certainly do live up to all the hype. I wore this palette to work recently, and the colors lasted till I got home with no fading which was around 5 hrs. They certainly are worth it especially considering the price point. The only downside is they can be a bit powdery but nothing crazy. A few high of the high end shadows that I have seen have similar powderiness.

L to R: Eyelid, Crease, Browbone

I also picked up 3 lip sticks while I was there. I saw the Rimmel Kate Moss collection so I picked up two shades 06 & 04. The dark purple one is a little difficult to work with in my opinion , it kind of almost has a greyish undertone and it just isn't flattering on me but it might work for others! The second shade I got is a bright hot pink which  is a beautiful shade, even though its not a dark vampy fall shade I still really like it and I'm sure I will get lots of use from it in the summer. One thing about Rimmel lipsticks I can't stand is the smell. It needs to be changed.

The third one I got is my favorite of the three and I have been wearing it constantly since I got it. It is Revlon's 477 Black Cherry, which I'm sure many of you have heard of. It is a beautiful black red and looks great applied full on or as a stain, and since it comes in a creme formula its easy to blend out. I usually only wear it as a stain because I do not have the guts to go out with it full on.

The last 2 things I got is 2 NYC nail polishes, they were have a 2/$3 deal so I thought hey, why not? I've wanted a Matte top coat for a while and for this price point it does the job. The second one is a glittery red polish with blue and pink sparkles. Haven't tried it yet but I plan on using it as just a top coat.

Well that is it for my haul! I definitely recommend that everyone goes and checks out 477 Black Cherry by Revlon and grab some Wet & Wild coloricon eyeshadow palletes!

Hey guys,
I thought I would post a quick outfit of the day. It is basically a fall outfit with a bit of a nautical twist. Surprisingly, everything I am wearing in this post is form H&M and is from the current season. I've been looking for a pair of dark red/burgundy shade of faux leather pants for a while now and I when I went to H&M and saw them, well it was basically love at first sight! I know I most likely won't get as much wear out of these as I would like to since there a bit...loud?

Now on to the pictures:
