Self-Rewarded Drugstore Haul

April 6, 2016

Whether you’ve reached a weight loss goal, received a raise at work, packed lunches every day of the week to avoid eating out, or passed a test…a pat on the back is well-deserved. It’s important to reward yourself every now and then.

Last week I submitted the final assignment for an online, part-time course I’ve been taking for the past few years. It was quite difficult, time-consuming and stressful at times, but I am so proud of myself for sticking through it. It feels amazing to be done – aside from an exam in May that I will have to take before becoming a Certified Association Executive – but the bulk of readings, discussion posts and report writing is over! To celebrate, I treated myself to a little drugstore beauty haul. I’m so excited to test some of these goodies out and play with makeup, now that I have a little more spare time.

Take a look at what I picked up:
(p.s. everything I bought cost roughly $5)

Wet n Wild Photo Focus Setting Spray
I love setting sprays to eliminate excess powder on my skin. No cake face for me, no thank you.

Wet n Wild Photo Focus Eyeshadow Primer
There aren’t many affordable eyeshadow primers on the market. I’m curious to see if this product will prevent creasing and encourage my shadows to stay put for longer.

Wet n Wild ProLine Liquid Eyeliner in Black
My initial thoughts were that this eyeliner is on the smaller size, but I suppose you get what you pay for. I was in need of a new black liner, and this one caught my attention. I have a feeling it will be a winner!

Wet n Wild 1 Step WonderGel Nail Color in Pardon my Peach
This orange-y, coral colour is going to be perfect for spring and summer!

Rimmel Clean Finish Foundation
I’ve actually never seen this foundation in stores before, so I have no idea if it is new or I’ve been hiding under a rock…

I don’t wear a full face of makeup on the regular, so an inexpensive foundation is right up my alley.

It makes a big promise, claiming to create a natural 100% poreless look. The shovel-looking applicator is interesting as well. We shall see how this one works out…

Schick Xtreme3 Hawaiian Tropic Razor
I’m not sure why a scented handle is necessary on a razor, but obviously it convinced me to buy.

You don’t have to spend money like I did to reward your hard work. Enjoy a pamper night with a hot bubble bath instead. Or throw on some sweatpants and lounge for a serious session of #NetflixAndChill. Either way, just be sure to treat yo’ self!
