There’s a couple of things that I’ve accumulated over the last little while from the drugstore that I think you should try and pick up before they disappear. I’ve been really liking them a lot, so I think you might too! Kind of a Mish-Mosh post of beauty stuffs. Mish-Mosh. Is that even a word? My tired brain doesn’t even really care truth be told hahaha. 😀 And I’ve had my first glass of wine in over a WEEK. Almost 2 weeks to be honest. So this? Should be a fun post for you AND me. 😀
Maybelline Color Tattoos Shimmering Sea and Sunwashed Sky are still popping up when I visit Shoppers, so if you see these two shades I think they’re definitely worth a pick-up! Hello. Just look at these shades and tell me you don’t think OCEAN. SUMMER. WAVES. MERMAID?
I love them both, but if I was pressed to choose JUST one, I’d say Shimmering Sea is my fave. And they’re on sale this week at Shoppers too, so grab it. You’ll love it. I slap on one of these, add some mascara and it’s a done deal makeup-wise for me.
Ok I’m not really sure if these Clarins Lip Balm Crayons are LE or not because I haven’t paid attention to my paperwork lately. I hate reading PR papers about products unless they make me laugh. And I say drugstore, because you can find Clarins stuffs at the drugstore, and that’s where I buy mine. I never buy it at The Bay for some reason…and I love The Bay. I do. But when I can walk instead of drive to buy my Clarins, that’s what Imma’ gonna do. I love walking to the drugstore actually. Have been doing it my entire makeup loving life to be honest. When Shoppers started being open on Sundays in the 80s, it was so AWESOME to be be able to walk on over and spend an hour in the makeup aisles….good times. 😀
This is a great lip balm, crayon-thingy. Really thin texture and great pigmentation. Plus no silly, fruity smell which is SO much better Clarins. Ditch the fruit scent in ALL of your lip products. You’ll sell way more, trust me. Clarins Lip Balm Crayons have mango, apricot and shea butters to moisturize your summer lips. It’s smooth, moisturizing, feels good and lasts well. Love it and this has made it’s way into my purse, which is something!
I’m not a HIGE Bourjois fan to be honest, but there are a few products I really like from the French drugstore brand. I do adore their cream blushes. If you want to try the Chanel Cream blushes but the $$$$ scares you, get yourself one of these. Bourjois OWNS Chanel, so YEAH. These? Are the EXACT same thing for a whole lot less $$$$.
This one intrigued me as it’s one of those Shade-Transfroming-SKYNET-Makeup-Products. Apparently this one can detect the perfect shade of blush for my skin shade. Props to you SKYNET, because I’m digging this pale pink cream-to-powder-blush shade a lot. It’s the perfect pale pink blush. But you already KNEW that Skynet, didn’t you? You BASTARD. 😀 😀 Which brings me to an issue I have with machines that end the world as we know it. WHY ARE THEY ALWAYS FEMALE, or have a FEMALE VOICE like in iROBOT? HMMMMMMMM?? This bothers me to no avail, because we all know it’s not going to be us females that end the world at some point…. RIGHT? It’s going to be a your-dick-is bigger-than-mine fight. We women do not CARE about comparing boob size. So, Screw you Hollywoood and your misogynistic views about the Apocalypse. I can hardly wait to say I TOLD YOU SO. :D:D That is, if I’m still here after all is over and done with. And I’m pretty damn sure I WILL be.
Yves Rocher is so overlooked here in English speaking Canada. They have really great stuff for really great prices. And the Yves Rocher Summer Collection Eau de toilette($29) and Shower Gel($3.95-SERIOUSLY? What a price!) are freakin’ awesome.
The Yves Rocher Summer Collection scent has all the charm of a summer by the Mediterranean Sea. I’m pretty sure I couldn’t handle the heat of a summer by the Mediterranean Sea, but I’m enjoying smelling like I’m there. And if this is what it truly does smell like, then I’ll endure the heat and the sweat someday. But, after I’ve finished paying for Marky’s college.(AY-YA-YAHHH America. How do you get away with charging that much money for education is beyond me.) It’s a magnificent blend of citrus floral enhanced with sweet, sensual woody notes. With mandarin from Sicily, bergamot from Calabria and sun-kissed fruit, it’s a perfect summer fragrance that should not be missed! Like I said before, I’m a bergamot whore, so if it’s in a scent I’m all over it. And this one is really lovely!
Lise Watier Blush Creme Satin($24) in Coral Paradise I picked up after I fell in love with Rose Eden.
Lise Watier Blush Creme Satin in Coral Paradise is a perfect coral blush. Just perfect. Lasts all day, blends like a dream-it’s amazing. I think this is a more affordable version of the YSL Creme de Blush which is one of my fave formulas out there in makeup blush land. But this Lise Watier version is like $30 cheaper??? It’s a no-brainer for me. You have to get one if you still can.
Ok, these hair ties ain’t from the drugstore because they’re from Sephora, but they’re pretty drugstore affordable imo. And I really like these Sephora Collection Tropicolor Ribbon Hair Ties($11):
And these hair ties won’t damage your hair. No breakage. Plus they’re bright neon, summer shades, so what’s not to love? You get 8 of them to wear all summer long, whilst singing along to CRUEL, CRUEL SUMMER. Speaking of Bananarama, don’t you think they had the ultimate, messy summer hair-dos EVER? I think so. And these hair ties will help you achieve that ultimate Cruel Summer hair-do. Hot summer streets and the pavements are burning I sit around, trying to smile but the air is so heavy and dry… 😀
There you go, my list of drugstore beauty summer must-haves. What’s yours?
Some of these products I bought, and some of them were sent to me. Doesn’t really matter which is which, because if you read this blog, then you know I tells ya’ the truth no matter what. It’s who I am and always will be.
