~Haul~ Ulta, Rite-Aid, Walgreens, Big Lots ( New 2013 Drugstore Products)...

Sunday, December 30, 2012

Hey Everyone,

Yesterday, I went on drugstore troll in search of the new 2013 products that I've seen on FB, Twitter and Instagram. Since most of it isn't limited edition, I didn't haul out real big, I know that most of it will eventually show up in the regular displays. However, it was fun finding and spotting some the goodies!! I even scooped a couple of pieces.

 I heard that there were SOHO brushes at Big Lots, so I went into the 1st Big Lots of the day and got lucky!!! I will check the 2nd Big Lots in a couple of days for powder brushes....
 Since the Walgreens stores in Spartanburg are very spread out over the city, I went into one store and as soon as walked in the door, matter of fact, I could see from my parking space....Fergie by Wet N' Wild. AND it was UNTOUCHED. I literally peeling the tape off the coupons on the display to use them!! What a drugstore product junkie's dream!!! LOL!

After much scoping around the display, I only got three pieces:

Photo Op Eyeshadow in Desert Festival
Lipsticks in Bebot Love and Ferguson Crest Cabernet
 I found the new Revlon nail colors in Rite Aid and picked up Nail Enamel in Girly....
 To my surprise, my Ulta was lacking and slacking on new products. I found more new stuff in Walgreens. Nonetheless, I came across the much hyped L'Oreal Caresse Shine Lip Tint Balms or something like that.You can understand how I feel about them so far, if you follow me on Instagram.:) ( ruralglamour).
Best find for me besides the Fergie Collection were the L'Oreal True Match Crayon Concealers. I'm not much of a True Match fan but I heard the hype about these and it was a happy find. After debating over two colors( because they were 8.99 in Walgreens) I got Medium/Deep W6-7-8.

Here are some other goodies I found....These are all from Walgreens displays.

 Rimmel's new BB cream wayyyyyy up high. LOL!
 The new L'Oreal display.
 The Maybelline Vivids lipsticks. I passed on those for now.
 Sally Hansen Salon Effects has french manicure strips. I'm digging that!!
Revlon's new BB Cream sans a deep/dark shade.:/

Have you seen any of these new drugstore goodies?

~RGBL Best of 2012~ My Favorite Nail Polish.....

Hey Everyone!!

Yep, you read that title right, Jamie is presenting her favorite polish of 2012. lol! Can you believe I could narrow it down? I chose colors that when I wore them, I didn't want to take it off. That's what I like to feel when I wear polish, complete love for the color.:)

 16 colors...Let's go!!!
 Some of my favorite shades were from Revlon, even though I had a love/hate relationship with their glitter shades. They were on top of the game in drugstore polish, creative shades and great quality for under $5.

 I kept my vow of not buying expensive brand polish. I was sent one polish and I won one that I loved. They are Laura Mercier Nail Lacquer in Crimson (CHECK OUT THE POST HERE!) and Essie Barefoot in Blue (CHECK OUT THE POST HERE).
 This year, Ulta opened a store only 30 minutes away and I finally get the chance to get my hands on more Essence products and polish. Two of my favorite shades from Essence this year were Gorgeous Bling Bling and Alice Had A Vision-Again (CHECK OUT THE POST HERE!).
 The sale bins at dollar stores and drugstores were my friend this year. Some of my favorite polishes were found deep in baskets and boxes.

Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in Wild Life
Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in Blue It

 I love Sally Hansen. They are ahead of the game in polish. Seriously, I see prestige and expensive brands emulating what they are doing in the drugstores. The first brand I noticed other than China Glaze to come out with a Magnetic polish was Sally Hansen. They also make in my opinion, the best nail polish strips. Here are two of my favorites from them this year!

Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Polish in  Choco-Latte

My favorite glitter polish this year literally sat in my collection for months until I dug it up for a Christmas/Holiday mani. This pink/silver combo is just gorgeous. I love Spoiled by Wet N' Wild Nail Color Jewelry Heist. CHECK OUT THE POST HERE! Its looks like a gorgeous pink diamond!
