Walgreens Haul

Hi Guys! 

So as you probably might have heard the Rimmel Apocalips have finally come out in the States! However, here they are called Show Off, I'm not really sure why they changed the name but regardless I'm so excited that they are here. They are exclusive to Walgreens as off right now and part of me is really glad because I don't normally go into Walgreens ( much more of a CVS and Target girl) but I honestly think it is my new favorite store for drugstore make up. I really loved how it is laid out especially the make up section. It has a huge aisle along the wall with stands with new products around it. Everything I needed was right there and so easy to find. Okay now that I'm done rambling about Walgreens, here are the products I picked up while I was there!







Simple Eye Make Up Remover: ( $2.49) I bought the travel size of the Simple Eye Make Up Remover just to test it out. I love getting travel sized things for that reason because they are cheap and if I don't like it I'm not stick with a big bottle of a product. I love make up wipes. They are fast and easy but they aren't great for your eyes and skin so I've been looking for a new eye make up remover. Since I love the Simple face wipes I figured there is a good chance I'll like their eye make up remover! I'll let you know how this goes. 

Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser: ($ 7.99) This is my Holy Grail of face washes. I have been using this for almost a year now and I adore it. It leaves my skin feeling nice and fresh. It also isn't drying and it wakes me up in the morning. However, my favorite thing about this wash is how it smells.   It smells of sweet fresh squeezed grapefruit juice. Anything grapefruit scented is probably a favorite of mine. I just think it smells nice, isn't overwhelming and is a refreshing smell. 

Maybelinne Baby Lips Electro: ($ 3.99) This is Maybelline's new line of Baby Lips is crazy neon colors. There is six of them but I only bought the 85 Oh Orange! to try it out and if you couldn't guess by the name it smells just like oranges. I'm not sure if they are limited edition but either way they are selling fast! They claim to hydrate your lips for up to 8 hours and leave a lovely tint to your lips. I'm really excited to try this one out and I think I'm going to get the Minty Sheer ( bright green color) next if I like this one! 

Revlon Lash Potion: ($7.99)  I'm going to be complete honest, I bought this because I love how pretty the packaging is. The colors of the tube reminds me of mermaids and the sea and that just makes me super happy. I got this mascara in Blackest Black. It claims that it will give you "spell binding volume and length." I am a huge fan of Maybelline mascaras and this is the first Revlon one I'm trying in a few years. Hopefully this isn't one of those products that looks pretty but isn't any good. 

Rimmel Show Off/Apocalips: ($4.99 each) The only word that comes to mind is FINALLY! Every British youtuber and blogger have raved about how amazing these are and they are finally available in the states. I believe there are 8 colors available right now but I  only picked up three in Aurora, Celestial and Big Bang. I can not wait to wear them and to do a full review on them. 

Rimmel Cocktail Colour in a Flash: ($2.49) This is another new Rimmel product in the states. It is Rimmel's line of glittery summer colored nail polishes that are said to dry in less than 60 seconds. I picked up one in 130 Apple Berry Smoothie which is a medium blue with blue metallic shimmer in it. It looks really playful and I think I'm going to put it on my toes for night since it is 4th of July. 

Batiste Dry Shampoo: ($3.99) This is another product that I got in a travel size to test out. My hair never really gets greasy or oily since I have so much of it and it is curly. However, it is impossible for me to wear my hair down second day so I bought this to try and figure out a way to get my hair to look okay without having to shower every morning. Wish me luck! 

Glamour Magazine: ($3.99) Last but not least, I bought the August 2013 Glamour Magazine. One Direction and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley are on the cover! I'm really excited to read this at work especially excited for the 1D interview. 


What have you bought lately? 
Lots of Love,

  1. That's so weird that they changed the name of the Rimmel Apocalyps in the States!
    They're about to bring out the Maybelline Baby Lips here in the UK! I'm so excited because I have the coral one and can't wait to try some of the others.
    The packaging of the Revlon mascara is the only reason I want it too haha.

  7. I really really really want to try the rimmel apocalips! GAR! I can't wait to get my hands on them!
    The revlon mascara looks so pretty! I spent a long time in the stores just picking up the product, looking and marvel at how pretty the packaging was and then put it back on the shelf! I'm a maybellline girl as well, and was hesitant to step out of my mascara comfort zone. Can't wait to see a review on the mascara! xx
