Hi everyone! A couple weeks ago my boyfriend and I were in Reno for a little vacation and I asked him to take me to a couple Walgreens in order to find some cosmetics I wasn`t able to find in the Bay Area. You`re probably thinking: you were on vacation and you went to a drugstore for cosmetics? Reno is a little boring if you don`t have the usual vices of drinking and gambling, so it was really just a weekend getaway for a change of scenery. About the closest I came to gambling was playing at the Midway arcade at Circus Circus trying to get a giraffe `pillow pet.`
Anyways, I was able to find what I was looking for, so here it is:
Fergie eyeshadow palette in `Bulletproof Glide` (~$5): This palette is limited edition and Walgreens was having a 25% off sale on all Fergie cosmetics so it was great I was able to find this. Sale tax is also a little bit cheaper in Reno, so every little bit helps. This features five shades: a matte cream, a shimmer gunmetal, a matte tan, a sheer sparkly silver and a matte black.
Sinful Colors nail polish in `Leather Loose` (~$3): I had been looking for this polish for an even longer time than the palette listed above and was happy to finally find it. This is part of the Leather Luxe collection and is supposed to have a matte `leather` type of finish. It was described on Nouveau Cheap`s blog as a chocolate jelly polish with flecks. It looked amazing with a top coat in her pictures so that`s how I`ll probably wear it.
Wet n Wild nail polish in `Atten-Hut` (~$2): This is part of the new Tough Girl collection and is a textured nail polish, meaning it will dry to a bumpy, sandy finish. I have a textured polish from Jesse`s Girl in a more summer color, and I think the finish is very interesting so I decided to pick up a polish in a shade more appropriate for the colder months.
In addition to these items, I had also picked up the shimmery eye primer (LE) and the eyeshadow palette `After Hours` (LE) from the Fergie collection but returned those without taking swatches. The shimmery eye primer is similar in idea to the Sin eyeshadow primer from Urban Decay, which I didn`t like so I don`t know why I picked that up. `After Hours` featured two shimmery light shades, a dark blue, a dark purple and cobalt shade, and the pigmentation was really horrible. The light shades barely showed up and the darker shades were so dark they looked black on the eye. The cobalt shade was okay but it was a bit powdery.
So that`s it for this haul. Thanks for reading! Were you able to pick up any of these products? What do you think of them?
