Drugstore Haul!

Hello everyone! I was very naughty and went on a small drugstore shopping spree. In my defense almost everything was on sale! My purchased included:

From Rite Aid:
  • Maybelline Color Tattoo Metal in Inked in Pink: Finally some new ones in the permanent line! Inked in Pink is a beautiful warm pink with a sheen. You already know I love these and have previously done a review. I love all the ones I own! From the permanent line I own Bad to the Bronze, Bold Gold, Tough as Taupe, Tenacious Teal, and Edgy Emerald. From the fall limited edition line I own Gold Shimmer, Rich Mahogany, Barely Beige, and Mossy Green. I already have swatches of Bad to the Bronze and Bold Gold, but I'd be happy to show more.
  • Maybelline Color Whisper in Lust for Blush, Pinup Peach, and Berry Ready: I'm in love with the Revlon Lip Butters, and I've heard that these are similar. I picked the 3 most wearable colors (for me at least). I'll do a review on these once I've played w/ them for a bit.
  • NYC Matte Me Crazy Mattifying Top Coat: I've wanted to try a matte topcoat for ages, and I've heard that this one is good. And it was only $1.99.
*I just wanted to note that Maybelline was "buy one get one 50% off," hence my overload of Maybelline!*

From CVS:
  • Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Eyeliner Trio in Warm Nudes: I've bought these same type of eyeliners in the past, and I love them! They do not smudge whatsoever, and they stay put all day. This trio has a black, a copper, and a bronze; all with a bit of gold shimmer/sheen. I usually use them on the lower lash line, but I've heard they work well on the waterline (haven't tried yet). I also own the trios for Blue Eyes (Black, Brown, & Blue w/ blue shimmer) and Nude Eyes (Black, Pewter, & Champagne w/ shimmer). The reason I bought this was because I'm obsessed with the brown from the blue eyes trio. It looks perfect on the lower lash line; it's not too dark but not too soft. I love the nude eye browns, but pewter was a touch too dark and Champagne was too light. I think the copper might be perfect! Also, I love bronze! And yes I know I could have repurchased the blue eyes trio, but I haven't used up the black or blue yet, so I thought that having more was overkill.
*All Physician's Formula was 40% off!
