Drugstore Skincare Haul!

I stopped by Walmart today with my parents to buy grocerys and whatnot, but me being the makeup obsessive freak that I am had to check out the makeup section. I didn't buy any makeup... (I had like four makeup products in my hand but told myself I didn't need it right now. Yay, be proud!) but I did pick up a couple of new skincare products! I've really been into skincare lately, so I might be doing a Skincare Routine soon! I feel like skincare comes BEFORE makeup.

So on my lovely trip to Walmart today, I picked up the Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Cleansing Pads! I wasn't expecting to get this (I wasn't expecting to get anything), but I saw it and it looked nice and I remembered hearing Macbarbie07 talk about it in one of her favorite videos! I used it a few minutes ago and I really like it, I have extremely dry skin and I feel like this moisturizes and exfoliates really well! They're basically pads with two sides, a cleansing side (which you use first) and a exfoliating side. It lathers like crazy which great, I think. I'll be doing a review once I use it more!

It has 28 pads, and I got it for $6.47 at Walmart!

The next thing I ended up getting is the Freeman Facial Peel-Off Mask (Cucumber) I also used this tonight and I don't really know how I feel about this. I have dry skin and I feel like this didn't help with that... I'm not sure yet! My stepdad who has oily skin also used it (LOL) and it worked AMAZING on him, it made his skin really soft and it whitened it a bit as well. I'll do a review once I figure out my thoughts towards it!
The mask comes with 6 fl. oz. and it costs $2.97 I believe!

So that is all I got at the all mighty Walmart. Again, I'll be reviewing both products soon! Have you tried any of these products? Do you like them? Let me know! xx

MAC Viva Glam Gaga Dupe!

I am super thrilled to show you all a dupe I found! I was looking at my collection (which I might do a video on soon!) trying to see what I can review or talk about since I knew for sure I wanted to do a post today. I took out a Rimmel London lipstick in Pink Champagne/ Pink Blush (They've changed the name, but I promise it's the same color!) and realized it looked similar to the lipstick I had on which was Viva Glam Gaga. I know a lot of you didn't get the chance to get it, and I've seen prices on eBay to be over $100 which is CRAZY for a lipstick! 

I bought Viva Glam Gaga when it first came out in February of 2010, it was my first purchase from MAC and I was ecstatic! It's a gorgeous bright blue pink shade. I honestly haven't seen great dupes out there. This one is probably the best dupe I've come across (if you know any dupes for this lipstick, please let me know!) 

I bought the Rimmel London lipstick almost a month ago during the CVS 50-75% off sale for $1.78 cents! I'm not quite sure if the sale is still going on but you can always check G.'s blog for more updates on that! She also shares all the great deals and sale out there, so make sure to follow her if you haven't already! $1.78 is an awesome deal for any lipstick really! 

As you can see the colors are VERY VERY similar! The Rimmel lipstick is on the top and the Gaga is on the bottom. I was really shocked to see how similar these colors are. They're not exact dupes; I say the Viva Glam Gaga is a little bit more blue toned and a little less bright than the Rimmel lipstick. Overall both colors are gorgeous and I'd definitely recommend the Rimmel London lipstick if you're looking for Viva  Glam Gaga and is having bad luck! Do you think they look similar? Did you get a chance to pick up Viva Glam Gaga? Let me know! xx

... I don't even know how to explain myself. I haven't made a post in almost three months! I can't even say I've been busy, because I haven't been. I have been semi-busy with school, family and friends, etc. but that is no excuse to not make a post in THREE MONTHS. I am back, and I'll be making a whole bunch of posts for you guys! Also, I make A TON of posts on my luuux which you can go to my page here! I've been on luuux non stop for a few months now, so if I don't make a post here you can always go to my luuux  page and see if I've made a post!

If you have any requests for me to do, PLEASE let me know! I'm pretty much brain dead which is probably the main reason I left blogger for a while! xx
