Beauty Buys

 I went to Walgreens the other day with the intention of only buying hair coloring and got distracted by the yellow clearance labels calling my name haha. Here's what I ended up buying. L'Oreal Prefrence in dark ash brown (ash is the best for neutralizing red and brassy tones), 3 Wet n' Wild  lipsticks and a nail polish .

This nail polish was pretty hard to photograph. It looks like it has a gray base with flashes of purple, green and blue. I haven't tried it yet, but when I do I will do a notd post and review.

You may have seen these first two lipsticks, 901b (pink) and 903c (peach), on every beauty blog recently. They are really pigmented and amazing quality for their price. I got these on clearance for $1.50 ea. The bright fuchsia color, 511b isn't something I would normally wear, but it was also on clearance and was only $.49! I bought it for fun to see if I could pull it off as I've seen a few girls in the blogging community do it fabulously. The verdict? I can't pull it off at all! Hello granny!

Unfortunately, The pink was a little too pink on me. The peach color was ok, a little drying but a little clear gloss over it solved that problem. Lipstick is something I just recently started to get interested in and I'm beginning to think I'm not a lipstick kind of girl. Maybe I should just stick to glosses, I always seem to have better luck with those.

Have you guys tried any of these products? What did you think of them?
