Drugstore Collective Haul + Recent Mini Haul

Here are some things I've hauled over the past few weeks or so. A lot of these things I purchased due to awesome reviews on several blogs and youtube channels. Also, most of these items were on sale and that is definitely the best way to go. Drugstore brands are, for the most part, affordable as is, but to snag items that are at an extra percentage off or BOGO is even better.

One of the things I was really excited to try was the new Wet N' Wild products. They have come out with new matte lipsticks, single eyeshadows, eyeshadow palettes, along with some new formulated mascaras. All of which are great bargains. I am not too sure that they are out in CVS yet (or Longs, here in Hawaii) but I got mine from Walgreens.  From what I have seen, the new color icon palettes have several MAC dupes which was of course why I wanted to try them out so bad! :D I have used #249 palette in 'Vanity' a few times last week and I must say that I am impressed. The pigmentation is great and the eyeshadows are very buttery soft and easy to blend. I have tried WNW's single eyeshadows in the little pots before and they were great as well, very velvety smooth. I only decided to try one of the new matte lipsticks in #902 'Bare It All'. Wasn't too satisfied with that one as I found it is quite drying on the lips, but nothing a little gloss can't fix. You can be sure to check out an upcoming review on these new WNW products. :)
