I was feeling makeup withdrawal...

Several weeks ago I decided to make a trip to CVS and Walgreens to restock on my EOS lip balms - and hopefully find a few new things that wouldn't break the bank!

I couldn't help myself when I took a browse through the Milani display. I had gotten a brown Sephora eyeliner, but it is hardly even pigmented. So I decided to get the Milani liquif'eye eyeliner - and it is amazing. SO pigmented! The below pic is one swip with the least amount of pressure :) Amazing, yeah?!

Of course I had to go get a new EOS lipbalm. Those things are addicting. I was pleasantly surprised to find that CVS now carries the Lemon Drop with SPF 15! Unfortunately, when I got home, I found that it had melted so badly that I needed to exchange it (which I did, so I have one in great condition now!).

I've only used the Milani blush in Mai-Tai a few times, but it is gorgeous. Still trying to make sure I don't overdo it since it's so pigmented.

Next I went to Walgreens because I was hoping to find the final EOS balm in Sweet Mint that I hadn't found yet. Lucky me I did and it smells amazing. I love minty lip balms - so refreshing! I also picked up Sinful Colors polish in "Hot Spot". It's a gorgeous blue with some shimmer to it. Definitely perfect on the toes!

I'm hoping to learn to keep controlling my urges to buy things at Walgreens and CVS, but ah - it's so tempting from the moment I walk through those doors! Haha. Thanks so much for stopping in :)


  1. Some great purchases! (the lemon drop lip balm looks sort of cool in slices like that, haha)


  2. i know what that can be like, when things cost jst a few bucks, it's hard to resist! : ) i know i'm not able to!

  3. I so want to try these lip balms! Everyone raves about them

  4. @Bubbs - I was almost tempted to save the lemon drop one that was all melted cause it did look pretty cool, haha.

    @Falaxy - I'm glad I'm not the only one! :)

    @Beauty Addict - You should definitely try them! I hope you get the opportunity to do so :)

  5. I have the milani liner and have to agree that it's great! next time i'll have a go at their blushers :D
