Mini Drugstore Haul

Hey Girls,

I recently went to CVS and picked up a few things.  Revlon lip products were buy one, get one half off, so I got two.  I also needed a new foundation and a fall nail color.  Let's get started!

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain- Honey
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick- Cherries in the Snow
Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation- 220 Nude
Essie Nail Polish- Power Clutch

First up, Revlon Balm Stain in Honey.  I really like this color.  I had tried a few of these in the past and had mixed experiences.  I love the brighter colors, such as Sweetheart and Lovesick, but was unimpressed with the only pale shade I had previously tried, Precious.  I decided to give the paler shades another try with Honey and was pleasantly surprised.  It is a perfect "your lips, only better" shade, is easy to apply and wears well.  The color stays on your lips about as long as your average balm, but it does lack the staying power of a traditional stain.

This color can be found on Amazon for $5.99.

Next, I tried a bold color that I had heard rave reviews about: Revlon Cherries in the Snow.  I was a bit nervous due to the intensity of the shade, but I had heard good things from my trusted YouTube gurus.  It is a beautiful color in the tube and is surprisingly wearable on the lips.  I expect to get a lot of wear out of this lipstick.  In true Colorstay form, the color does stay on for a long time.

I actually needed a new foundation, and my sister recommended the Revlon Colorstay Whipped foundation.  It is a medium to heavy coverage foundation, and I love the thick consistency.  It is easy to blend, and the coverage is awesome.  I am wearing it in both of the above photos.  I am shade 220 Nude.  This is quickly becoming the foundation I reach for the most.

Finally, nail polish!  I went to CVS to buy Revlon Colorstay Spanish Moss, which I did purchase.  However,  a few days later, I received Essie's Power Clutch in my Birchbox and decied to include it in this haul as well.  Sadly, I am not really loving it.  I love Essie's formula and ease of application, but the color is not a favorite. What do you think?  Should I give it a second shot?

The lighter shade (pinky and middle finger) is Revlon Colorstay Spanish Moss.
The darker nails are Essie Power Clutch.

Anyway, that is all for now.  I should get a Little Black Bag tomorrow, so I will post on that soon.

Let me know what makeup you have bought recently and what you are loving at the moment!
