Recent Acquisitions

This past weekend I picked up a few things from Ulta and Walgreens, so I wanted to swatch them for you. I also included Maybelline Amethyst Ablaze, since it’s so gorgeous. I found some new eye shadows from Revlon, which are the first eye shadows I’ve purchased by them in quite a while.


The Revlon eye shadows are from their Diamond Lust line. When I saw the iridescent glitter in Night Sky and Neptune Star, I had to pick them up. I’m such a sucker for iridescence. I think iridescence is up there with purple and teal for me. It makes me a million times more likely to pick something up.

Too Faced Drunk Dial isn’t new, but it’s new to me and I think I’ll end up using it as an accent on top of teal liner, or in addition to it. It’s mesmerizing. Ulta Silk is something that Lea picked out for me. It’s a really nice basic shade.

Maybelline Amethyst Ablaze I love since it’s purple. Rawr. I picked up Rubylicious, but it’s not quite as sparkly.

These are really pretty shades :) They’re on primer, of course, but the pigmentation and sparkle is nice.

Here’s the amazing Amethyst Ablaze.

Rubylicious is certainly pretty, too.

What have you picked up from the drugstore recently? Anything you’re loving?

        Thanks Michelle! I’m looking forward to playing with Drunk Dial, too.

      Wow! Those Revlon shadows look really nice (strange cause I heard the last glitter shades Revlon put out had horrible pay off).

        These claim to be new, so I’m assuming it’s a new line from Revlon. They swatched nicely.

      Wow I love the Drunk Dial – it’s sooo sparkly and glittery! I just got a new Ulta coupon in the mail yesterday. Hmmm…

        It’s so bright and fun ;)

      Drunk dial made me pee myself a little it’s so pretty. Hehe. Those shadows look promising too. The other Revlon shadows with glitter in the similar packaging (now they are discontinued I think) were a nightmare (yup, horrible color payoff and massive glitter fallout that wouldnt go away)!

        I haven’t worn these yet, so I can’t speak to their fallout. They weren’t bad to swatch.
