Walgreens Shopping Spree

It’s been almost a week since I’ve posted anything and I just have to say it feels so weird.  I love blogging but, I never thought it would come to the point where I would feel the need to constantly check my blog and others whenever I get a spare moment.

The reason why I haven’t been posting anything is because my little boy is sick.  After having suffered a light fever on Monday night and Tuesday night.  I took him to his pediatrician on Wednesday and it turns out he has a double ear and throat infection.  If it weren’t for the fever you wouldn’t even be able to tell that he is sick.  He is one strong lil’ boy!

On Wednesday, my husband and I went to Walgreens to get my son’s prescription and while waiting to be called to pick up his meds I took a stroll through the cosmetics aisle and picked up a couple of goodies.  As always, Walgreens had this great sale going on; Rimmel products were 50% off, Maybelline and Revlon were 40% off.

Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadow quartet in Black Magic

Just last week I had picked up another one of these quartets and was a little disappointed because if you layer them, the colors tend to crease a little bit.  When I saw these colors they immediately commanded my attention – sheer sparkling gray, bubble gum pink, grayish black and white. From now on, I’ll just use a thin layer as a base color.

Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow in Sea Glass


I snatched this duo because the colors just screamed spring. The colors also reminded me of the ocean.  Besides I don’t think I have these colors in my collection.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro in Burgundy Flirt


Rimmel Stay Matte Clarifying Matte Foundation in Classic Beige


I think I’m becoming obsessed with finding the perfect drugstore foundation!  I used it today and the shade seemed to match me pretty nicely.  It didn’t look to light or too dark for my skin tone.


Let me know if you have used any of these products and what you think of them.

Have a wonderful day! :-)


  1. the colors look amazing! and I hope your little one gets better soon :)

  2. Yeah I hope the baby feels better soon! I've used the revlon cream shadows and they crease like crazy so next time try a thin layer and see what happens. In my case even a thin layer would crease on me so I do not use them anymore ;-(

  3. The Rimmel looks interesting, I love burgandy!:D

    Get well soon to your little boy!:D
    ...and everything girly under the sun!
