Beauty Haul & Update


Hello loves,
            I wanted to do just a little update for you this week. I am heading back to college on Saturday, which will be a big adjustment for me. I came back home on December 11, so it’s been a long time since I’ve had classes! I am thrilled to head back to see my friends, but I am quite nervous and excited for the courses I am taking. I hope they all go well! Again, I am hoping to continue posting about once a week, and there may be a few more lifestyle posts about college living since there is always so much going on! I also wanted to do a mini drugstore beauty haul post that I just bought at Wal Mart. So, here it goes! (P.S. Sorry about the terrible photos--my camera & lighting were not agreeing with me!)
            One thing I’ve never tried is a facial primer, so I decided to try one out! I purchased the Revlon Photo Ready Perfecting Primer, and I’m excited to try it out. I am typically impressed with their products, so I’m excited to give this one a try.
            I can’t live without lipstick. I use it all the time, and I am constantly trying different brands and shades. So, I decided to pick up this gorgeous light pink shade. It is a Revlon Color Burst Lip Butter in the shade 005 Sugar Frosting. It is a perfect light pink that I can’t wait to try this spring.
            Another brand that I like is e.l.f. Their products are cheap, so I love to try them out. Most of their products work well, so I gave a few new ones a try. I purchased their Eye Primer & Liner Sealer. I am hoping it works well, as it was only $3, which is much cheaper than most other brands! I also purchased their Cream Eyeliner in the black shade. It looks like a gorgeous product, so I can’t wait to use it.
            Covergirl is probably my go-to brand. I needed to pick up my everyday concealer, and their CG Smoothers are my favorite. I started using it last fall, and I haven’t tried any others since. I love it so much and definitely recommend it! I also wanted to try their new mascara, the Bombshell Volume with the two-step mascara. I was so intrigued by this, and I can’t wait to see how it works!
            And, last but not least, I had to purchase another EOS lip balm before heading back to school. I LOVE their lip balms so much.
            Here are a few of my beauty favorites and new products to try. Have you tried any of these products? If so, what did you think of them? I will try to do another post (or maybe two!) before I head back to school. I can’t wait to continue to share my fashion, beauty, and life adventures with you all! Thank you for reading—I can’t wait to see how this semester goes!

Much love and thanks,
Maggie D. xx

  1. Awesome shopping haul post! Primer is always awesome so hope it works out for you, it really helps you to apply foundation (if you wear it) so much easier. Also, I adore lipstick too so I have way too many-- I recommend Sephora's cream lipsticks if you don't mind spending around $16 because it lasts forever and is seriously is the best lipstick I've ever tried so far. Also, I think I got that mascara in a giveaway recently, so I must try it out! And I love ELF! Another cheap but great makeup brand is NYX :)
