Walgreen's Beauty Haul

I think my latest trip to Walgreen's may have been my best trip ever! There were so many amazing beauty products on clearance, and I'm a girl who loves my deals and steals. Overall, I saved $80 on brands that I know and love, plus a few new ones to try. Today I'm unbagging my beauty haul and getting down and dirty with swatches and reviews. Note: products are listed from left to right in multi-product images.

Melrose Face

Angels in Aubergine

As usual, these wet n wild eyeshadows don't disappoint. They are almost always well pigmented. If you are someone who doesn't use primer, they hold up fairly decently on their own.

Blush

Coloricon Blusher

Heather Silk

This is a matte blush, and I really like the shade. The pigmentation is pretty good.

Lipstick

Black Orchid
Light Berry Frost
Just Garnet
Cashmere

I think wet n wild lipsticks are good quality for the price. They are not the best you could ever buy, but they come in a fine range of colors and are pigmented rather well. These are all regular lipsticks; none are matte.

Rimmel

Eyeshadow

Glam'eyes Quad Eyeshadow

Sun Safari

Smokey Purple

Mayfair

Crown Jewels

These are my first Rimmel products. I'm really disappointed by their pigmentation. I'm holding out hope that I can pack on some color during actual application.

Mascara

Lash Accelerator Endless in extreme black

The wand is long and flexible, yet fine enough that I think it can really get into your lashes. I've never used this product before, so let's hope for the best.

Maybelline

Eyeshadow

Color Tattoo

Hydrangea Hype

I've heard good things about Maybelline's Color Tattoo products. They are extremely similar to e.l.f.'s smudge pots, which are absolutely amazing. The product seems like it will hold up well on the eye, since I was able to touch the swatch later and it did not smear. This color is quite unique.

Color Molten

Rose Rush

The packaging claims that the colors will essentially "melt" together. I have to say that the powders are so soft and creamy that they almost seem like they are a cream. I'm thinking that this product may live up to its claims. However, I'm slightly perturbed that Maybelline used a shimmer overspray on the lighter shade.

Nail Polish

Mega Rocks Glitter Nail Color

At Will Call
Slap That Bass
Jam Session
Gettin' Amped

What can I say. I'm a sucker for glitter polish. I like the quality of wet n wild polishes. Again, not the best you can buy, but pretty darn good for the price.

Megalast Salon Nail Color

Break the Ice

Megalast polishes hold up pretty well, when used with your favorite topcoat. I also love the brush! It should be a law that all brands must use this brush. Also, who doesn't love a white manicure every once in a while?

essie

Brownie Points
Saltwater Happy
With the Band
Private Weekend
Bell Bottom Blues
Virgin Snow

These are my first every essie polishes in my collection, simply because I find them to be too expensive. I absolutely adore these colors, including Bell Bottom Blues. I'm on the edge of my seat waiting to try these out.

Others

Nicole by O.P.I. Quick Dry Topcoat
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Blush Over Hue

Nicole by O.P.I. Quick Dry Topcoat Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Blush Over Hue

While I swear by my Seche Vite topcoat, I'm not totally turned off to the idea of trying a different one. It works extremely well, but it does have its drawbacks, including chemicals and it discolors lighter polishes. I hope that this O.P.I. topcoat works just as well, without the disadvantages of Seche. I  also sincerely hope that it lives up to its claim of being quick drying, because I think that's huge for a topcoat. In addition, this Sally Hansen polish is just beautiful.

Sinful Colors

Rain Rubber
Flight to See
Beaches and Cream
Nail Junkie
Anchors Away
Last Chance
Clear Coat
Outta Space
Lavender
Sheer Flight
Super Star

I am a mega fan of Sinful Colors. I can't get over the quality that you get for the price! They definitely belong to be up there with the high-end polishes. A large percentage of my collection is Sinful Colors, so I just started grabbing all of the ones that I don't already own. 

I don't know about you, but whenever I review all of the goodies that I just bought, I always feel like wearing everything at once. If only I had that many fingers for all that polish! Anywho, which of these products were your favorite? Least favorite? Let me know in the comments. Until next time, continue to let your true beauty shine.
