Target and Kohls Makeup Haul

9 Feb

Hey there friends. I’ve been so good about not buying makeup, and I mean…SO good. Really. It’s been MONTHS.

Butttt inevitably I had to venture into those glittering aisles for a replacement mascara (Miss Manga finally bit the dust) and I fell off the wagon. Forgive my weird blurbs about each product, I was keeping it super casual 😛

♦ NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder in Dark Brown/Brown

A little light for my brows, and the wax is weird…it doesn’t dry. Like, excuse me, do I look like someone who wants sticky eyebrows all dang day? Still, the powders are nice, and the mini brush and spooly that come in the kit actually aren’t bad at all.

♦ e.l.f. Studio Prism Eyeshadow in Sunset

Holy pancakes Batman. This is so good!! I must go back for the other palette. The texture is difficult to describe…basically, it’s a very creamy powder. The colors are extremely metallic and pigmented. I’ll see if I can cook up an appropriate Valentine’s look with ’em.

♦ Sonia Kashuk Lustrous Shine Lip Crayon in Peony

God damnit Sonia Kashuk, why do your lip products gotta be so good?? I love the color and the formula of this amazing lipstick-balm hybrid thingy. I will be wearing it until it dies. And it’s twist-up, so no sharpening required.

♦ Jane Cosmetics Water-Resistant Liquid Eye Liner in Black

I’ve heard some good things about this liner, but I was a bit disappointed. Granted, I’ve only used it once, but it STINGS MY EYEBALLS. (Like the fires of hell. Or something.) That aside, it is long-lasting and takes a bit of effort to remove. Application is pretty simple if you’ve mastered the idiocy that is the thin bendy liquid liner brush, and it dries matte. Eh. Maybe it’d work for someone with less sensitive eyes, but I took it off an hour ago and I can still feel it stinging.

♦ Jane Cosmetics Eye Shadow in Juniper

Totally picked this up on a whim, because single eyeshadows are notoriously neglected in my stash. It’s a gorgeous smokey deep teal that isn’t super metallic but still quite pigmented. Over a dark base this would be ERMERZINGGG. I’ll give it a go.

♦ The Balm Cindy-Lou Manizer

Lovely creamy blush/highlighter type deal. Gives my cheeks an odd but beautiful corally sheen. Definitely want to pick up Mary-Lou Manizer although I never wear proper highlighter…#oilyskinproblems

♦ Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara in Very Black

Ah, the original reason for my stop. It will forever be my curse that I ALWAYS AND WITHOUT FAIL accidentally buy the waterproof version of a mascara. Upon application, though, I had that “oh my gosh, is this mascara real” moment that I’ve only had a few times in my life. It was a pain to remove, but I might just be able to live with that in exchange for the incredible volume this gives my pathetic lashes.

Have you tried any of these little guys? Tell me your thoughts! Allll of them 🙂

    The stinging eyeballs – eyeliner – Supernatural gif totally made me cackle, out loud.

    Also, I’ve been touching all things The Balm in Debenhams lately, every time I’m there. I’ve never used anything The Balm, and am lusting over the highlighters…

    Same #oilyskinproblems tho.

      It’s true man!! Although I’ve been teaching my eyeballs to get over themselves so i can still wear it.
      I love The Balm’s packaging, I feel inclined to pick up their palettes just for that…*slaps wrist* Bad Olive.
      What is the curse that we must always want to look lovely and highlighted but end up looking like a greaseball??? I mean, that’s me, you probably look like you’ve been kissed by an angel 😛

        Haha, by a greasy angel, yeah : D
        Oh the packaging is TOO pretty. Seriously.

    The only one of these that I’ve tried is the mascara. But holy crap is it a fantastic one! That elf palette though. I want it.

      Glad I’m not the only one who thinks so! And I was so shocked by the quality, especially for elf. I wore the shimmery white all day w/ primer and it didn’t fade or crease…a+

        That’s awesome. I’ll have to track that palette down.

Think inside the box!
