I went out today to get a haircut. Come to think of it, it was more of a maintenance trim. But, still my hair looks much better. My bangs are where they are supposed to be and the hair is lighter. I'll post pictures soon. Afterward I went to Wal-mart to innocently browse the cosmetic aisles. Innocently enough I ended getting several items. The good thing was that all my items came to a total of $22.83 after taxes.
St. Ives Timeless Skin-Apricot Scrub Renew and Firm ( $2.97 )

I am a huge fan of St. Ives Products. I've been using them for a couple of years due to the good quality and affordable price. It doesn't hurt that the packaging has been re-vamped and now it looks super cute.
I am a big fan of the Apricot Scrub because I feel like it really goes deep into my pores and leaves my face feeling fresh and clean. This time around I decided to try the same product only in the renew and firm formula. Let's face it, as the years go by things start to get saggy. So, why not try to prevent it.
Bettina Eyelashes ( $2.97 )
I have no idea if these lashes are good or not. I got them because they include the glue and are cheap. I've never played around with falsies so I thought these would be good to practice with. Later on I'm sure I'll get better quality ones as well as DUO adhesive.
Covergirl Clean Foundation in Medium Light ( $4.00 )
I've been wanting to get a new foundation for a while now but, not because I'm tired of my current one. Sometimes I find myself trying out new looks and I use my MAC foundation. If I keep going at this rate I'll have to buy a new one really soon and I don't have $30.00 right now to spend on one bottle of foundation. I thought it would be good to try out an economically priced foundation ($4.00 on sale) to play around with at home. I just hope the shade matches me. :-)
After I have used it for a while I'll probably write a review :-)
N.Y.C. Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny ( $2.72 )
I got this because I thought it would be good for practicing contouring.
N.Y.C. Metro Quartet Eyeshadows in Union Square ( $3.86 )
The colors can't be appreciated through the picture but, they are really pretty. They're ideal for an everyday neutral look.
Revlon Illuminance Creme shadow in Copper Canyon ( $4.82 )
I don't have any creme shadows so I thought why not. They were cheap, if you compare it to the Walgreen's price. I can also use them as base colors :-)
Sorry about the bad lighting in the pictures :-)
Let me know if you have purchased any of these items and what are your thoughts on them. :-)
