Rite Aid Haul: Featuring Maybelline and Kiss

On my recent trip to Rite Aid this is what I purchased.

Since I’m already a fan of Maybelline’s mascaras, I wanted to try the Falsie ® Big Eyes ® Mascara. I purchased Blackest Black.

I only applied one coat of this mascara. I really like the brush for the bottom
lashes.

I also saw the Fall 2013 makeup collection from Maybelline. I purchased only one lipstick and that shade was Midnight Plum. This color reminds me of Cyber from MAC and Talk That Talk from the RiRi Hearts MAC Collection. I really love Midnight Plum. I may have to pick up another lipstick in that shade.

I need to get back into doing my nails. I purchased the Kiss Nail Artist. I have enough nail polish. No more excuses. 😉

A Closer Look: RiRi Hearts MAC Summer Collection 2013 – Heaux Lipstick

MAC released the RiRi Hearts MAC Summer Collection June 18, 2013. The only thing I wanted from this collection was the lipstick in Heaux. This lipstick is described as a matte berry and retailed for $15.00. I previously purchased RiRi Woo from www.maccosmetics.com back in May.

MAC Haul from Nordstrom

I recently went to the MAC counter at Nordstrom to pick up a few things I needed.

Pro Longwear Foundation in NC50, Eye Brows in Spiked, Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Dark Deep, Lipstick in Impassioned

ImageI chose NC50 for the Pro Longwear Foundation because NW45 was too red on me. Using the Skinfinish Natural offers a nice balance so the NC50 doesn’t look too yellow when I’m wearing this foundation.

ImageThe MAC eyebrow pencil is my all time favorite brow pencil. I like the precision the skinny tip offers. Plus the pencil is self-sharpening.

ImageI also did some recycling at the MAC counter. I got this lipstick for free since I turned in six empty containers.

This is how all of the products looked on me. 🙂

 

 

 

 

A Closer Look: MAC RiRi Woo

Rihanna recently collaborated with MAC and came up with a remixed version of the Ruby Woo lipstick. On May 2, 2013, The RiRi Woo lipstick was available online for $15.00. Needless to say the lipstick sold out in three hours. RiRi Woo will be available again online in June.

RiRi Woo is described as a Retro Matte red. I must say I am so in love with this shade. 🙂 I do recommend applying a lip conditioner first.
