In one of my previous posts, my college haul, I mentioned that I was moving into an apartment to attend a community college for two years before transferring. Well, long story short: things have changed. I'm not attending a 4-year university and will be living in the dorms! I'm excited for this and have been anticipating the shopping for dorm/college stuff for a very long time and that time finally came. Even though I don't move into my dorm for another two months (Sept. 20th, to be exact), I wanted to get a head start on shopping so I could get my hands on things before everything is picked clean (and because I was anxious).
I bought a lot of stuff recently and I originally wanted to do a haul of this stuff but, honestly, it would be pretty hard to make a post of all this stuff. If you're interested in seeing the stuff I bought for my dorm then let me know! But for now, I thought I would show you the makeup goodies I bought on one of my shopping trips from a couple of days ago.
I haven't really used any of these products yet, aside from the occasional swatch. This is why some of the products are already opened (I couldn't wait!). Most of them are from Target, with the exception of a few items. After that long-ass intro, here it is!:
First, I got the Neutrogena Makeup Removing Wipes. I also picked up the Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer in the color Ivory. I had heard great things about the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation and was surprised to find it was only half the price of most drugstore foundations so I had to try this one out. Then, Fred Meyer had this deal where you buy two Revlon eye products for $12 and, seeing as most individually were around 9 or 10 dollars, I couldn't pass it up. So I got the Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eye Pen in the color Blackest Black as well as the Revlon Colorstay 16 Hour Eyeshadow quad in Moonlit.
I find the ELF eye brushes to be pretty great; they get the job done. So I wanted to get the fluffy eyeshadow brush (I already have the shader brush). I also got the Sonia Kashuk Blush Brush, seeing as I'm not the biggest fan of the ELF face brushes. When it came to mascara, Maybelline The Rocket was a no brainer. I knew I wanted to try out the Maybelline Color Tattoos so I got the shade (surprise surprise) Bad to the Bronze and am in love with the color. The last item I got was also the most expensive; it's the Yes To Grapefruit Dark Circle Correcting Eye Cream. I've heard great things about this and I am in desperate need of a good, effective eye cream.
These are all the products I picked up and hope to do another (probably smaller) beauty haul again soon after I pick up the rest of my essentials for going away to college. A few of these products were on my Summer 2013 Wishlist although in different shades/colors!
Let me know if you've tried any of these products and what you think!
