Undeclared Haul: Drugstore goodies (Maybelline, Olay, NYX, Milani, Jordana)

On October 25, 2011 by Michelle Ng

Hi everyone!

 

First and foremost, I would like to wish everyone who is celebrating it, Happy Deepavali!

This is more like a collective drugstore haul which I have purchased some time back, and these items are pretty much affordable. As much as I love high-end items, drugstore items are also my love because some of them are really wallet-friendly and works well too.  I was chatting with my friend just today and we told each other that all hell would break loose if we were to step into a US drugstore one day! Our credit cards would be swiped probably a gazillion times!  This is of course just a makeup-fantasy.

First up, here are two products for my face. The relatively new Maybelline Fit Me foundation and Olay Regenerist eye lifting serum. Shade 110 for the foundation is definitely very pale and I would suggest this shade to those around NC15. Since my tan is still not completely faded, I am still in between NC20 to NC25. This foundation is now meant for mixing with my darker foundations. If you would like a review, please feel free to let me know!

Olay Regenerist is an anti-aging line and since I have recently turned 21, I don’t have to bother much about wrinkles, but I have fine lines under my eyes sadly. Prevention is always better than cure so I bought this eye serum to make sure wrinkles do not develop for me early!

Finally, here I have some liners! Reason why I wanted more lines was that I only have 4 pencil liners originally (2 Urban Decay and 2 L’Oreal HIP), and I wished that I have more variety of colours to play with.

Here I have:

  • NYX glide on pencil in Platium (newest released)
  • NYX candy gitter liner in silver
  • Jordana bright eyes pencil liner in Orange
  • Jordana bright eyes pencil liner in Blue
  • Milani liquif’eye metallic eye liner pencil in Black

 

Swatches:

I am loving these liners so far! They are not only affordable but has great quality too. Jordana has many funky rainbow colours when I fell in love with. So does the new NYX glide on eyeliner pencils too, and the range can be comparable to Urban Decay 24/7 eye liners. In fact, after I took these photos, I made another order for more liners, not once but twice! I already have the first order with me and the next is en route to me, hopefully reaching within these few days!

 

 

Thanks for reading ~
