Haul (w/ swatches): eos, Burt's Bees, Maybelline, Revlon, Rimmel, L'Oreal, CoverGirl, L.A. Colors

Hey Ladies!

I have a few things to show you that I picked up from a few trips to Walmart and Family Dollar.

eos lip balm in Lemon Drop

These are my all time favorite lip balms. I already have Summer Fruit and Honeysuckle Honeydew (which I left in my car and it melted but I didn't know it was in my car so overnight it hardened back to lipbalm texture and now it is just funny shaped) so I was glad to see my Walmart had this flavor as well.

Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Tiger Lily

Although I felt totally misled as to the actual size of this lip balm (that packaging is ridiculous), I'm really glad I got this. It has a very sweet scent but it super moisturizing.

CoverGirl Lip Perfection lipstick in Kiss

I was so happy with the last shade I bought from this line that I decided to pick up another one. This shade is really frosty which I wasn't expecting but I think applied sheerly with a gloss over top it will be a nice nude-esque coral.

Rimmel Moisture Renew lipstick in Crush

I am loving this coral color! This line of lipsticks have a pretty strong "lipstick" smell but they really are very creamy and moisturizing.

Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick in Demure

I realize I bought three really similar colors... but I swear I needed all of them....
I am quite pleased with this light rosy pink and these Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks apply so nicely.

L.A. Colors 5 Color Metalliz Eyeshadow in Ammunition

These shadows are ridiculously soft and pigmented. I was shocked when I swatched these. I have two other pallets from this line and I don't think they are as soft and pigmented. These colors are really nice. The light silver and the silvery lilac are really similar and I don't know if I would be able to see the difference between them on my eyes. The same goes for the two charcoal colors, but it was only $1.50 and the actual product is really good quality.

Maybelline Stylish Smokes quad in Natural Smokes

This was the only shade from the whole line that was on sale and it was the only one I wanted even before I knew that! I scored this for $3.97! The colors are pretty but the formula isn't as nice as I expected. They are pretty hard and take some building up to get good color payoff.

Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadow in Precious Metals

I have another one of these in Not Just Nudes and they work so well I really wanted to get another quad. This was a nice medium between neutral and color. The colors are very wearable.

L.A. Colors Pearl Metallic Liquid Eyeliner in Black Pearl

I am trying to get better at using actual liquid liner and not just eyeliner pens. This was only $1.00 and I love the color. It's a really nice metallic charcoal.

L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black waterproof mascara in Carbon Black

I was in need of a new mascara and decided to try this one since I have heard so much about it and it was only $5.48. I haven't used it yet but I'm really excited to see how it looks.

Maybelline Fit Me! Pressed Powder in 120 Classic Ivory

I was watching this video and she said this was one of her favorite drugstore powders. If this doesn't work out for me I think I will try the Maybelline Dream Matte powder but I had a  coupon for the Fit Me! line so this is what I decided to try.

Those are all the makeup goodies I have picked up. I have a small nail polish haul and an odds and ends haul coming up. I hope you are all having a fantastic weekend!
