Drugstore Haul

Not that I need an excuse to shop but, Shopper's Drug Mart was advertising their spend $75 get $25 worth of Optimum Points 'sale', 'event', I'm not sure what you'd call it. I think this is a pretty good deal, especially because I shop there quite a lot and collect the points anyway.

Along with Easter chocolates for Max, I bought a few makeup items for myself, which were all on sale this week as well!

First, I picked up a backup of my Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes. These are my favourite makeup wipes because they are super gentle on my sensitive skin, and also do a great job of removing swatches on the backs of my hands.

I had gotten a foil packet sample of the L'Oreal Youth Code BB Cream and really liked it so when I saw that it was 30% off plus the added 'sale' going on I decided to pick it up. It's pretty expensive for a drugstore BB cream so I don't think I would have picked it up otherwise. I picked up the colour Light.

Next, I grabbed a Rimmel Lasting Finish Soft Colour Blush in 150 Live Pink. This is just another standard peachy pink blush with shimmer in it. I have quite a lot of these in my collection now that I'm looking at it, it's not a conscious thing though. Apparently I need to be a bit more creative in the blush department.

For eyeshadow, I bought a L'Oreal Infallible one in the shade 002 Hourglass Beige, pretty standard. It is a light iridescent colour, perfect for all over the lid.

I bought two eyeliners, the first being the L'Oreal Infallible Smokeissime powder eyeliner pen in 701 Black. I've been loving the smoked out liner look lately and thought this product would make it so much easier. I also got the L'Oreal Silkissime eyeliner in black, just a standard black liner, but it's super creamy and easy to apply. It's also very black, and it was hard to remove from my hand so I'm hoping it's long lasting on the lashline as well.

Can you tell, L'Oreal was having a sale?

Lastly, two lip products. First is a CoverGirl lipstick in 255 Tempting Toffee. I haven't worn this yet but it swatched really nicely. It's a nice brown nude shade, which I've been loving recently. I also bought the Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour lip liner in 032 Innocent. This was actually a mistake, I meant to pick up the colour Natural, however I will be keeping this because like I said, I've been loving the brown nude colours. This will probably look good under the CoverGirl lipstick actually. I also already know I like the formula because I have other shades from the Exaggerate range.

What should I pick up next time I'm at the drugstore?
