This past weekend I was looking at the Giorgio Armani “Eyes to Kill” shadows and really debating trying them – HOWEVER, I heard that the L’Oreal Infallible shadows were essentially dupes – so I thought I would give those a try first! I had also been hearing good things about Girlactik and wanted to take a look at the range. They sell Girlactik at some Rite Aid stores. While I was at Rite Aid I also picked up a couple other things – check it out below:
Maybelline has some of my fave drugstore lipsticks! The formula is long lasting, pigmented, and wears really evenly all day!
POP Beauty – Lipgloss:
I have never heard anything about these but was immediately drawn to the packaging. I swatched these in the store and thought these colors were so pretty! The gloss is super pigmented and not overly sticky, great for everyday wear.
Girlactik – Matte Lip Paint & Gloss:
I wanted to try out one of the Girlactik Matte Lip Paints as I have heard a lot of good things about them. I chose the shade Starlet as it is a great everyday pink. Because I am a little crazy / OCD – I like having things in pairs so I decided to pick up a gloss as well. I thought this Bella shade was sooo pretty. The perfect touch of color on the lips with tons of shine! I really love this shade. I will say though that Girlactik is not cheap, it’s actually more along the lines of MAC pricing, which is why I didn’t want to try out more of the range. It does seem like good quality though and I have heard really great things, so I am excited to use these :).
Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush:
I’m not totally sure what drew me to these blushes. I haven’t heard anything about them but I thought these colors were pretty and very different from anything I had in my collection. I wanted to sort of branch out my blush range & figured I would give these a go! After purchasing I tried to look them up a little bit online and they have gotten very mixed reviews. I think the trick is figuring out the best way to apply them because they can be a little tricky.
L’Oreal Infallible Shadows:
I am obsessed with these shadows. As soon as I swatched them, they became some of my all time favorites. The formula, pigmentation, and overall shine that comes with them is so gorgeous. My personal favorites are Iced Latte and Amber Rush, but really you cannot go wrong with any of these. I can’t believe it has taken me this long to try them!
Overall, I am super excited about these product and can’t wait to keep using them. I will post an “All Drugstore Look” later this week showcasing some of these products in case you are interested in seeing them on!
