Drugstore Haul + Mini Reviews

I’ve been doing tons of drugstore hauling recently and thought I’d show you my purchases!

Wet ‘n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow 10 Pan Palette in Nude Awakening – The pigmentation on this palette is great! The colors go along with each other perfectly as well. I like this a lot more than the Silent Treatment quad below too.

Wet ‘n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Quad in Silent Treatment – This wasn’t my favorite formula from Wet ‘n Wild compared to their old Color Icon formula but it wasn’t terrible. The pigmentation was so-so but the shadows were smooth and I really liked the colors.

Maybelline Total Temptation Waterproof Mascara – This added a little bit of volume, but not much and not much length either. I’d rather stick with the L’oreal Lash Paradise or Maybelline Lash Sensational over this mascara. It does smell like vanilla though! And does do well to layer over with the other two mascara’s mentioned.

Elf Stipple Brush – This was great, I used it for bronzer after I saw Allana Davison on YouTube use it constantly for that. It’s short and compact but still usable. It does sheer out the product for a subtle but pretty contour.

Milani Eyeshadow Primer – This worked well when I used it with the eyeshadow palettes I mention in this haul. It’s a little bit thick but really brings out the tones of the colors.

Wet ‘n Wild Highlighting Bar in Midnight Moon- This reminded me of MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinsh’s but just a little bit drier. The formula went on pigmented enough but the color was grey and kind of strange for a highlighter. I’d reserve using very lightly or as an eyeshadow.

Morphe Eyeshadow Palette in Jewel Crew – This palette was incredibly pigmented and I especially enjoyed the gold shade and highlight color. It could do with a more mid-tone brown shade for a transition shade as all the brown tones were very dark and given how pigmented they were, it was hard to make a mid-tone look, as it was all either very dark or very light. I always use it with a palette like my Morphe Always Golden eyeshadow palette which has more medium-tone transition shades.

That was my drugstore haul! What have you been hauling lately? Any thoughts on the products? Let me know in the comments below! – xo Whatever Lydia Does – xo
