August has been actually crazy for me. My sister got married and then a week later one of my best friends got married. After all that madness and fun, my boyfriend and I decided to take a vacation and we spent 4 full days in New York City.
While I was in New York I went into a couple drugstores. By a couple I mean I went into every drugstore I came by. I also went to the Glossier Showroom while I was away, had such a fun time there, and picked up a few products I thought I would include.
If you want to see what I picked up while I was in the US, keep on reading!
I’m not going to include the prices because they are different in Canada then they are in America and I also threw out all the receipts. Oops hehe.
On my list of things to do while in New York was go to the Glossier show room. As far as I know Glossier is an online only makeup and skincare brand but has one store in New York. I have been wanting to try this brand for a while and this was the perfect opportunity.
I picked up the Wowder in Light/Medium. This powder is supposed to be mattifying and pore blurring. I’m hoping its great to bake with as well! I also picked up the Boy Brow in Brown. This is supposed to be an amazing brow product for a really easy brow. Lastly from Glossier I picked up the Balm DotCom in Coconut. I love all purpose balms for dry skin and lips so I can’t wait to try this!
I have also been wanting to try out the pink and white Wet N Wild brushes because well, they’re cute. I had no idea it would be such a soft brush! I haven’t tried it with any product yet but can’t wait.
As if one loose powder wasn’t enough I wanted to try out the new Maybelline Fit Me loose powder. If I can find a less expensive powder thats comparable to my Laura Mercier Powder, I’m down to try anything!
I bought this NYC liquid eyeliner basically because I forgot to bring one to New York but I ended up really liking it! It’s a brush tip and it’s super pigmented and black. I’ll be using this for a while because it’s awesome!
The new Maybelline City Mini Eyeshadow palettes have been bouncing around the beauty community and they are apparently really nice and pigmented eyeshadows. I got the Matte About Town palette and has all Matte colours. I love a good matte eyeshadow palette because it’s so great for travel and I would just bring one shimmer shadow and would be set. I’ll probably do a look with this palette and post it on Instagram so be sure to follow me there! @thinkingofmakeup
Onto liquid lipsticks! I haven’t been able to find the new Rimmel Matte liquid lipsticks in Canada and really wanted to try them. They are very affordable. I, of course, got a super neutral colour to test out. The colour is called Blush. I’ll let you know how I like these. I also picked up 2 colours from the Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid lipsticks. I already have the colour Heroine and love it so I wanted to pick up the colours Lover and Voyager. I think I’ll do a full review on the Maybelline liquid lipsticks so I’ll hold off on my full opinion but spoilers – I love them.
If you want me to review any specific products let me know!
Have any of you picked up anything recently from the drugstore?
