Drugstore Beauty Haul - March 2015

I recently decided to go on a beauty hauling at the drugstore as I haven't done that in quite a while. My friend and I decided to go to Shoppers Drug Mart and Walmart in hunt of some goodies and I thought I'd share the results of my haul with you.

Overall I think I did really well.. and most of the items I got were on sale :)

Swatches of the lipsticks I hauled - the colors on my arm are from top to bottom - lipsticks left to right. So, 135 is the top color, 160 is 2nd down from top etc... the bottom one is the essence lipstick I got for $2.99

I picked up 4 of the Maybelline colorsensational lipsticks at Walmart - they were on sale for $5. To be honest, I have never given drugstore lipsticks much of a chance - my friend actually convinced me to give these a try and I'm glad I did. Typically I always go to Shoppers to browse around for beauty products and they are actually way more expensive then Walmart. For e.g. I bought the Maybelline lash sensational mascara at walmart for $4.99 on sale and at Shoppers it was about $12.99 - BIG difference!

No beauty haul is complete without some nail products - I picked up the two NYC polishes for $3. The white one is those peel of base coats. I figured, for $1.50 I'm all for trying it out. I've been eying similar products made by Essie and OPI. I will report back on how it is! The orangey-red polish is perfect for my toes :) I'm really hoping that Spring is coming now that the weather is warming up and we've adjusted our clocks this weekend.

I picked up a few more eye related items - I've been on a hunt for those Milani Gel Powders for a while, I was stalking the Loblaws Superstore for them (since it's the place I know that sells them in Toronto), and to my surprise, I found them at Walmart at STC!! They are pricey though, at $8.88 - they aren't that "gel" like - I think that I would've probably wanted to buy the Color Pop shadows instead - those look more "gel-like" from what I've seen and heard.

Next I picked up the Essence shadow palette at Shoppers for $4.99 and a super adorable brush for my bronzer that is in a cute heart shape for $2.99 also by Essence.

Overall, I have to say that I did quite well for this drugstore beauty haul!!

I've got a few reviews and another haul coming soon - stay tuned!

  1. I wanna hear your thoughts on the essence palette. It's been in the "maybe purchase" part of my brain for a while. So glad you got the Maybellines - they're my favourite drugstore lipstick - the soft matte lipsticks are my current faves.

    1. I have yet to find any of the matte shades I like in stock! GRRRRRRRRrr

  2. Wow, the pigmentation of those Maybelline lipsticks is impressive! Love the shades too :)



  3. That essence brush and lipstick tho. They are absolutely gorgeous, I can't believe the price too!! What a steal
