"Get Out of the House" Collective Haul!


A couple weeks ago, I was feeling a bit of "cabin fever" and just really wanted to get out of the house for a while.  So I did, and while mostly I just browsed the drugstores (I did not buy anything from either Rite Aid or Walgreens), I did find a few things from Target, Walmart and the beauty supply stores.  Not a lot, but sometimes several little hauls adds up to a lot over time. The whole "restricted/no-buy" thing is not going well this month.  Oops.  I'll have to try harder for the rest of the month...and next month.

So with all that said, what all did I find? Let's start off with my first item, which was from Target.
Sonia Kashuk #16   Sweet Nothings palette - clearance for $10

And from there, I went to Sally's Beauty Supply which is almost right next door to Target (there's literally only 3-4 stores between Target's doors and Sally's).
Femme Couture Smokin' Eyes Shadow Stick in White

I got this hoping it would be a substitute for the NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Milk.  Got it home, and nope - it's got a sheen/shimmer to it.  My guess is that it would be similar to the NYX pencil in Cottage Cheese (I think that's the name of the shimmery white).  After this let-down, I did a Google search and read some about the L.A. Colors so next time I go out, I'll probably stop at a store that sells them and see if I can find it - I am determined and once I find it, I hope I'll be happy. lol

Then I went to North Coast Beauty Supply, hoping that they would have the new Euro collection from OPI out...but no.  I did get a couple other things, though.
Zoya 3-in-1 Remove + and China Glaze Soft Sienna Silks (clearanced)

I did finish my polish remover that is not pure acetone, so the Remove + is replacing that.  I like to keep some more gentle remover (compared to pure acetone) around so I thought I would try the Zoya since it seems to have almost a cult following.

And I finished my day up at Walmart since we needed kitty litter and laundry stuff.  I got a couple of things, 2 of which were things I've been meaning to get new ones of for a while and kept forgetting, and one extra.
Salon Perfect nail polish in Fire & Ice (first one of this brand for me) - this is the extra
and a trio of nail clippers - clearance section - needed replacements
and a much needed new super sticky lint roller - a must need when your kitty is primarily white and a good chunk of both of our wardrobes are dark

So there's my "escape the house haul."  While it wasn't a lot of things, it does add up quickly.

Have you felt the need to just get out of the house lately?

  1. You are going to LOVEEEEEEE the Sonia Kahsuk palette I use it everyday now !!!


    1. Seeing your post was actually the main reason I went to Target that day! The shadows are definitely nice for a neutral look or to pair with colors from other palettes, I just need to use a different primer/base since that one creased on me. :-)
