Mini Haul...

Last week I went to Silver Spring and stopped by Ulta and Rite Aid and picked up some things. I've been on the hunt for a new concealer. Normally I use Bare Minerals in warm deep but lately it hasn't been working and leaving me ashy. I tend to like my concealers to match my skin so when I saw this one by smashbox I figured I would give it a try and see how I felt about it. It's the Camera Ready Full Coverage Concealer in 8. So far I like it. It comes in a lipstick like package and goes on smooth and blends well.

I also picked up some face products by Queen Helene. I try to do a facial at least 1-2 times a week and this stuff is great!! It sucks out any impurities and leaves my face super soft. I also picked up a lotion. I' m a ash phobe so I always make sure to have some type of lotion with me at all times. Nivea is the one lotion I have found that leaves my hands soft all day opposed to some others I've used which have worn off after 2 seconds.

Rite Aid was having a BOGO sale on Revlon and HIP. I've been looking at the Revlon Golden Affair items for a while. I picked up 2 of their sculpting blushes, Merlot at midnight on the right and Berry Darling on the left.

Apparently you contour cheeks with them which is why they have the gold circles. The first time I used it I was heavy handed and had more gold than color on my cheeks so I looked a straight fool. I like the colors but think that they should have mixed the gold in with the blush color more. I found that swirling the brush like they recommend picks up more gold than the blush and will leave you with more than a golden glow.

Rite Aid and now Target are the only places that I ave found that sell the entire HIP line and not just the eye and lip stuff. I picked up 2 vibrant shimmer powders in Thriving. I have one in Radiant and I love it. It's very light and leaves a pretty simmer. Thriving I will say is slightly darker but it also leaves a light shimmer. I didn't mean to get 2 of the same color but they only had 3 and I was so pressed I didn't realize until I got home. I was going to exchange it but didn't feel like it.
