Winter Drugstore Haul 2017

So I have been picking up a few things here and there lately.

Winter Haul 2017

L’Oreal Voluminous Feline Washable Mascara

They say:  this is their first mascara for instant volume with full lash density.  The Quick-Charge brush captures each lash to deliver instant volume and fullness.  Quick-Charge, ultra-glossy black formula provides feline volume and shiny smooth lashes in one coat.

I say: Garbage!  I don’t like the brush.  It flakes all over my face.  My lashes looks clumpy.  One day I will be brave enough to take close up shots of the mascara on my eyes so ya’ll can see.  But that isn’t today!

L’Oreal Extra-Volume Collagen Mascara

They say:  lash plumping technology delivers breathtaking volume and incredible wear.  The formula is infused with collagen, to enhance the thickness of your lashes for up to 12x more impact without clumps.

I say:  Better, but not fab.  I prefer the other Collagen formula that I covered in this post.

Maybelline Dream Brightening Creamy Concealer, Fair and Light

They say:  Brightening Creamy Concealer delivers medium-to-full coverage for a luminous finish.  The formula glides on with light-reflecting pearls achieves brilliant bright-eyed perfection.

I say:  I like it.  It is good and sheers out well.  I don’t like cakey concealer! I prefer the Instant Age Rewind Erasers.

L’Oreal Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types

Winter Haul 2017

They say:  Removing waterproof mascara with basic cleansers can lead to harsh rubbing, which can dry skin.  This removes mascara and cleans skin in one step.

I say:  I have discussed micellar waters before here.  Seriously, just about everyone sells one now, and I have other new ones that I haven’t photographed yet!  L’Oreal released 3 versions.   Pink Cap (which has been compared to BioDerma) for Normal to Dry skin, Blue Cap (which is here) and the Green Cap which is for Normal to Oily skin.  I would like to try the pink cap version, when I bought this one, it was the only one available (at Walgreens).   I haven’t actually tried this yet, but do really like micellar waters.

L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Primer

They say:  This is the perfect primer to your favorite mascara instantly boosting every lash look.  This primer instantly builds dramatic volume and length on each lash.  Tip:  apply primer then mascara to one eye at a time before the primer dries.  Use two coats of primer for more impact.

I say:  I have tried this a few times with different mascaras.  I really like it.  I would recommend this and repurchase.  I always love anything typically with voluminous in the name by L’Oreal.  By the way – I swear I am not sponsored by L’Oreal – but L’Oreal if you want to sponsor us – please email us!

Dr. Bronner’s Naked Organic Lip Balm

Winter Haul 2017

I picked this up at Target recently.

They say:  This is made with organic beeswax, and provides a protective barrier to the elements.  There is organic jojoba, avocado and hemp oils help with extra moisture.

I say: I like it!  It is very moisturizing.  I purchased the “naked” one, but they have some flavors available too.

POGO Lip Balm


They say:  this lip balm features Organic Hemp Seed Oil. The smart combination of Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Coconut Oil, and Organic Beewax creates the perfect lip care solution for moisturizing and protecting dry, cracked and chapped lips.

I say:  I really like this.  I like that the packaging is different and that I don’t have to stick my finger in it!  I also love that there is a ? mark by the flavor!  This comes in several flavors:  Mint Mint, Unscented, Vanilla, Banana, and Berry.

Vaseline Lip Therapy in Pink Bubbly

They say:  This limited edition lip therapy tin is enriched with champagne grape extract, this luxurious jelly will intensively moisturize and smooth.

I say:  I don’t love sticking my fingers in product.  There is a scent to this as well.  It smells like roses.  It is very moisturizing like other Vaseline Lip Therapy that I have tried.

Well that’s all I have for you today – though there is more that I have hauled recently, so stay tuned for more!
