Drugstore Haul — Swatches — First Impressions


With a new year comes new makeup! I thought it was time to give some new products a try and what better way to start than with drugstore makeup?

If you’ve watched any YouTube videos lately, then you’ve probably heard all about this new product! It is seriously played on almost all of the advertisements so I thought I would give it a try.

This palette is so pretty! I was pleasantly surprised when I was swatching it because the colors are actually pigmented. The light ones look like they will be really pretty as well. All the colors are shimmery and the product is very smooth. I can’t wait to actually try this out!

They may say that strobing is the new thing, but I am always on the lookout for new contour and highlighting palettes. I just can’t let them go.

This little palette comes with a nice, travel sized brush and so far I think the colors are very nice. I am really looking forward to seeing how they look on pale skin. Because, you know I’m a ghost over here.

This one isn’t actually new… but it’s a repurchase and I love it.


This is the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Pink Truffle. It’s just a nice, neutral lipstick that gives you a hint of color as well as moisture.

I love me some Baby Lips so of course I had to try their lip gloss!


This is the Baby Lips Lipgloss in Taupe With Me. It’s a lip gloss. A sheer one at that. But I like that it isn’t super sticky and it actually feels like it is moisturizing my lips.

Now, this is the one I was most excited about.


This is the Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid in Nude Flush.

I’ve got some things to say about this one.

First of all, this is not matte. It is a very thick cream lipstick and I waited an hour after applying this and it still wasn’t matte. But it was extremely moisturizing and soft feeling so I guess it depends on what you are looking for.

Second, I literally had to google this and see if it was a lip plumper. Why? As soon as I put it on, my lips started tingling and eventually kind of felt numb. After about 30 minutes this stopped… but I was kind of freaking out for a minute there.

But this has a great color payoff and it’s not shiny. It also makes my lips feel like velvet. So I still like it. So far.

Thanks for reading! Have any of you tried any of these products yet? Or do you have any recommendations for products I should try? High or low end! Let me know!

  1. For drugstore brands, I love the Revlon line of lipcolors. I usually try out my crazy bold shades there first. Also I just tried the maybelline matte in electric pink and I like it pretty well. Agreed it doesn’t get SUPER matte, but I’ve had a lot of compliments on it!

    1. Same here! Whenever I want to try something bold I always try maybelline or revlon! I’ve been going so bold lately that I barely had any nudes.. So I went a little nude crazy πŸ˜‚

      I actually like that it isn’t super matte because it isn’t as drying on my already dry lips! 😊

  2. oh also have you tried the Bite Matte Creme Lip Crayons? They are nice and matte and not drying! Pricer but worth it for a good bold color or something you wear all the time. I’m obsessed with everything they make!
