I have wanted to post this drugstore haul for ages now, but I thought I would be able to film a video. Unfortunately, I have not had the chance to do so, so today I just wanted to share my haul as well as some first impressions on these lovely things in blog post form. Let's get started with some short 'n sweet opinions.

Essie Blanc

First impressions: Surprisingly easy to apply, opaque with two coats. Not even that streaky and quite easy to work with. I really like this color on me! It works with any outfit, especially minimalist and monochromatic ones. I cannot wait to wear it when I'm a bit more tan as well.

Essie Cute as a Button

Gorgeous hot coral shade that looks so pretty on the nails. Opaque with two coats, very shiny and pretty. When I add a topcoat it looks so beautiful!

Essie Grow Stronger

Have only used this two times so far and it wouldn't really be fair to post any definite opinions. Have not noticed any changes yet, my nails are still very brittle.

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Eyeshadow in 65 Pink Gold

Absolutely gorgeous shade which I've worn every single day since I've gotten it. Would warmly recommend this to anyone, especially as it is so inexpensive!

L'Oreal Miss Manga Mascara

I've seen so many mixed reviews on this, I was very sceptical about it. But I absolutely love it! What an awesome mascara. Elongates my lashes like crazy, gives them volume and does not clump in the slightest. I do get panda eyes with it if I use it on my bottom lashes, though, but this has been happening with every mascara lately - any advice?

L'Oreal Lumi Magique Primer

I've never used a primer before and I wasn't really sure what to expect. This is supposed to give you a luminous dewy finish and I think it does the job well. It's basically white and kind of shimmery, really a bit scary when you pump it out, but it blends nicely. Can also be worn by itself for a pretty healthy glow.

Bourjois 1 2 3 Perfect Foundation

I have to say I'm not in love with this, it's a perfectly nice foundation but for some reason it just does not work on my skin. A bit upset!

L'Oreal Lumi Magique Foundation

Absolutely in love with this beaut. Medium coverage, beautiful dewy finish. Full review to come.

Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Curl Mascara

Really interesting curved wand. Love it for volume and it does actually hold a curl.

If you'd like to see reviews on any of these products, please let me know. :)
