Drugstore Haul + Mini Reviews (Revlon & Maybelline)

Hey everyone I hope your all doing well. I know it's been a while since I've posted on my blog but I'm back with a few things I got at the drugstore yesterday. These are things I've seen all over youtube and have been dying to try for sometime now. I got these from Shoppers Drug Mart and all the lip products were on sale so if your in Canada I would check out Shoppers asap!

 I picked up two new Revlon Lip Butters in Gumdrop and Creme Brulee (for $7.99 each on sale). I've heard Creme Brulee described as a lovely nude option which I haven't yet tried out but which I have high hopes for. Gumdrop is a beautiful lavender shade, and I am obsessed with lavender lips and I think this will look lovely with a layer of Revlon's Lilac Pastel gloss on top. I also picked up a Revlon lipstick in Haute Berry (also $7.99 on sale), which I tried today and am absolutely in love with.I have green eyes and this lipstick really complimented them, as anything purple toned seems to do for me. 

 I also picked up two Maybelline products which have been really talked about, which are the undereye concealer in 120 Light ($13.99), which is a really gorgeous yellow toned concealer, as well as the tattoo eyeshadow in Bad to the Bronze ($12.99), which I tried today and would describe as more of a bronze with a taupe undertone to it. I also tried the concealer today and thought it was really blendable and creamy. I haven't tried to many products by Maybelline but I am so far impressed. 

After twisting the top several tops the product appears through the top of the sponge applicator. Rather then applying it directly to my face I swipe the sponge over the top of my hand several times and then use a brush to apply the concealer and that's what works best for me. You can see it has a lovely, creamy consistency. 

So that concludes my little haul, I hope you enjoyed it, I'm certainly enjoying the products, especially the Haute Berry lipstick, which I think is very elegant and luxurious (perhaps because of the name?) If you have any questions or comments just leave them below.
