December Rite Aid Makeup Haul!


Merry Christmas Eve!  I thought today would be a good day to show the makeup that I purchased from Rite Aid during December.  I got this makeup so I would look pretty for all those holiday photos (if any get taken, that is...).

I was watching redheadphd's I <3 Drugstore Makeup Tag video recently, and she discussed some of the Prestige eyeshadows being dupes for Mac & Urban Decay shades.  Well, Prestige fits in my budget a whole lot better than those 2 and Prestige was on sale that week.  So I went shopping.  Looking through what I got and the couple she listed, I missed one of the dupes, oops, and just got a bunch of pretty colors.

top row: Oasis and Comet (UD Sin dupe)
bottom row: Flushed and Golden Retriever

These particular Prestige eyeshadows can be used both wet and dry.  I also have Blanc which I bought quite a while ago - Blanc is what I use to set my liner when I use a white pencil in the waterline.  My picture is not doing any of the shadows justice.  Ink has gorgeous multi-colored glittery shimmer and Oasis has a beautiful silver-y glittery shimmer.

Foundation is necessary for perfected holiday photos so let's get to that topic.  If you read my post on my foundation quest, you might remember that I am searching for a new foundation to love.  I also asked for some advice on the Beauty Broadcast Facebook page.  So now I'm showing what items I've purchased so far based on the recommendations I received.
 I bought the Neutrogena Shine Control Primer from Walmart, but it is available from Rite Aid (for a higher price tag)
 Neutrogena in Classic Ivory 10
Bought from Rite Aid since I wasn't sure if the shade was correct and I'm not sure what Walmart's return policy on open cosmetics is...

I've already used this foundation, and it is my shade...and the Mister actually likes the way it looks on!

Revlon Colorstay Whipped in 110 Ivory
Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder in 010 Fair

I was going to buy the ColorStay Whipped from Walmart, but there wasn't even a spot for my shade.  So today I made a quick run to Rite Aid where I had seen the new Revlon Nearly Naked foundation and powder and made my purchase there.  It helps that Revlon is on sale this week, plus I had some +Up rewards that needed redeemed.  I basically got the powder for free after the sale and redeeming the rewards, and earned new rewards in the process.  I've seen some pretty good reviews of the powder so I knew I wanted to try it, and I've used the Whipped foundation before and really liked it so it's back in my stash (just in a different shade from before).

What's your favorite drugstore foundation and setting powder?
