Drugstore make-up haul

dsc_6511

I haven’t done a drugstore make-up haul in so long, and this is not a big haul, but I thought I would share it with you anyways.

Essence is one of those really affordable brands that has really impressed me. I often check out the Essence display at my local supermarket, and I believe these melted chrome eyeshadows are a newer product. I swatched them on my hand and thought they looked really pretty, so I picked up the following three shades (from left to right); 01 zinc about you, 02 iconic, and 05 lead me. I’ll be doing a first impressions post on these eyeshadows soon.

I also decided to give the Essence make me brow a try. It’s a tinted brow gel en the shade 02 browny brows.

Lastly, I purchased this metallic lipstick from Maybelline. It’s in the shade 30 Molten Bronze, and it’s such a unique shade. I’m really excited to try this on. It’s the kind of shade that could look either really cool or really bad.

Triggered

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. This Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipstick in the shade Triggered is the vampy lipstick of my dreams. It’s the perfect mix of purple and brown, and the gold glitter makes it even more special.
