Small collective Haul & FOTD

Hello my lovely readers,
These past few days I've gone to the drugstore and always managed to leave with something! Today I stopped by the discount store "Lot-Less" and did a few little purchases there as well. I've decided to be more budget-friendly when it comes to cosmetics--even though I always have been. Five dollars or less is the mind-set I've kept so far.

So I recently bought a Wet n' Wild's single eyeshadow from their ColorIcon collection called "Penny/Sou neuf". It has caught my attention many times and I finally caved in. It was only $1.99 so it's not like I broke my wallet. I also purchased one of their blushes from the ColorIcon collection in "Mellow Wine" and I must say, it's lovely on my cheeks. Price?-- $4.99! 

Mellow Wine

Penny/Sou neuf

Today's FOTD featured these two products. Whenever I haul a beauty product, I always use it a day after. I get so excited when I buy new products. What girl doesn't? Haha.

Wet n' Wild ColorIcon Eyeshadow "Penny/Sou neuf"
ELF Pro Mini Eyeshadow Palette 
NYX Trio in "Team Spirit"
As blush I used Wet n' Wild's "Mellow Wine"
On my lips I have my NYX Lip Lacquer in "Coral-Licious"

1. I applied Penny/Sou neuf by Wet n' Wild all over the lid.
2. I then applied the bronze brown eyeshadow from my ELF Palette into my crease.
3. To blend out the edges and soften it up--With a fluffy brush-- I used the light pinkish eyeshadow from the ELF Palette.
4. Using a pencil brush, I picked up a bit of the blue from my NYX trio and applied to the outer 2/3 of my lower lash line.
5. For highlight, I picked up the white shimmery eyeshadow from the ELF Palette.
6. I topped it all off with a winged eyeliner (Maybelline Stiletto), Mascara (Maybelline Pulse Perfection) and lined my waterline with a black eyeliner (L'Oreal Linear Intense). 

Today I hauled a bit at my local discount store (Lot-Less) and at Duane Reade. Just a few things, just a few things. If there's a bargain and if it appeals to me, me likey!

Wet n' Wild lipsticks

I'm looking forward to using these lipsticks more often. On top of their cheap price, the pigmentation is pretty fabulous. I am, however, on the lookout for some vibrant lipsticks so when I find them, I'll be sure to buy them and show them off to you here. On a side note, ELF is having FREE SHIPPING on orders that are $25 and up. As I've mentioned in the past, ELF is a good source for those just starting out in makeup. They have all the basics: primers, concealers, foundation, powders, blushes, eyeshadows and so much more. I really do recommend you buying some of their products.

Just for the record, I'm not being sponsored by them or anything, I just really love their products. That's all I have to show you all today! If you have any questions at all, feel free to comment below and I'll answer them asap! Thanks for reading!

I have a DIY post coming up. Be on the look out!
