Drugstore & Camera Ready Cosmetics Haul, + Swatches ...



Is anybody else just loving the Fall Season? Something about Autumn makes me feel all warm and fuzzy :) I love lighting some Vanilla and Pumpkin spice candles, while its cloudy and windy outside.


Anywho, I was excited about trying some new Drugstore goodies. I purchased the new Maybelline Cat  Eye's Mascara & Revlon Whipped Foundation. I also tried the different version of the L'oreal Lineur Intense. I can't really give a proper review for the mascara, as I use False Lashes- but Its not bad for the lower lashes :) I'm on the hunt for a mascara that will work for lower lashes. I find many leave clumps, and leave my lower lashes looking spidery. 





The foundation isn't to bad, however I find the undertone to be a little on the grey side- but once blended & set with powder, it looks nice.







As for the Lineur Intense, I don't care for it- the brush is flimsy, and its hard to go over your lash line with it (my line looked a little crooked, compared to my other Lineur Intense) ...I do love the formula though, it very black and solid. I simply dip my other Lineur Intense tip into the formula.

Another purchase I was looking forward to was from CRC Cosmetics. I purchased the infamous Make Up For Ever HD Foundation (Shade 117) and the OCC Lip Tar in 'Cha Cha' -




I'm not going to lie, I don't like the Foundation- frankly, its quite terrible. Its watery, greasy, and has a strange scent. Also, I have really oily skin & my Kryolan Anti-Shine Powder will make pretty much any foundation last all day on me. MUFE HD was the only foundation that my Kryolan powder couldn't combat :( I'm pretty bummed, because I have heard so many positive reviews. I might just swap this on Makeup Alley. Hands down, the best foundation I have tried to date is Estee Lauder's Double Wear.



The Lip Tar is quite intense, its a pure orange. I have to say, that on Google the swatches I saw looked more peachy then pumpkin. Of course, I don't wear Lip Tars alone. I mix them with either a lipstick, gloss or both. Cha Cha doesn't look to bad when mixed with Peachstock lipstick by MAC, and NYX's Smokey Look Mega Shine Gloss. Even though I love nude lipsticks, lately I have been loving my NYX Mega Shine in Beige (a Rose/Pink colour) for Fall.

In other fabulous news, I'm getting the Marilyn Monroe Blush 'Legendary' from MAC! I got an email from one of the amazing ladies that works for headquarters, and she told me they had 4 left in stock! even though it claimed to be sold out online. Always call MAC regarding out of stock collection items, they have a different inventory! I was so happy. I'm also thrilled that the Pro Products are now available online! I'll be purchasing the Paint Stick in Pure White soon.



I also couldn't resist ordering these shoes last night, they look so Lolita :)




Have a great weekend Dolls!
