Drugstore Haul + Mini-Reviews ♥ (Garnier, Revlon & Rimmel)

Heyy everyone, I hope your all doing well. I recently picked up a few things from the drugstore that I've been lusting after and have been so pleased with everything I've gotten. 

Revlon Lip Butters in Lollipop and Peach Parfait: I adore the Revlon lip butters and also own them in shades Berry Smoothie and Strawberry Shortcake. To me these are more then just a tinted lip balm, as they are very pigmented and very buildable. Peach Parfait is a gorgeous peachy everyday color, while Lollipop is a super bright pinky-red which I've heard compared to MAC'S Girl about Town lipstick. Love these so much! 
Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer: I have really been enjoying this. I prefer it to the L'oreal primer that comes in a little pot, as the Revlon product comes with a pump, is much easier to blend over the skin and will last me a lot longer. I find the finished texture of my skin to be quite similar to the L'oreal primer, but if your trying to choose between the two I would say go for the Revlon version. 
Garnier BB Cream in Light/Medium: I've used this several times now and absolutely love it. I've been wearing this at times when I do want coverage but I don't want to pile on the foundation. It spreads very easily all over the skin and it is buildable. The coverage is light to medium, and I have worn powder over this with good results. I also tried using this as an all over base and then applying Estee Lauder Double Wear in the places where I need more coverage and I liked the effect that had as well. Really enjoying this ! 
Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick #14: I've picked this up and set it back down several times and finally purchased it. It is darker then your average nude lipstick, and has a really lovely creamy texture. It's a very warm color, and I think this would look gorgeous with a smokey eye. I wore this yesterday and really loved the finished look of it. 

Hope you enjoyed these mini-reviews, if you want a full review on something or have any questions just leave them below in the comments. Hope your all having a great weekend!
