Walgreens Mini Haul - Limited Edition Maybelline!


Just recently, reports of the Spring collection from Maybelline surfacing began showing up on various blogs/vlogs...and I, myself, have already done one post about it.  But today, I'm sharing the 2 things that I've bought from the collection - as well as another version of the display.  If you spy it at Walgreens this week (2/24/13-3/2/13), Maybelline products are on just might have to ask the sales associate to adjust the price to get the buy one get one 50% off (there aren't any exclusions listed on the tags...but maybe some Walgreens might be more picky with including limited edition products in the sale). Never hurts to ask.

So, let's see what this newest display looks like:
This has the polish, Vivids, glosses, blushes, EyeStudio shadows, Master Drama liners 
and at the bottom is a row of Falsies and Falsies Flared mascara.

Now let's see what came home with me:
Eyestudio shadow palette in 500 Violet Volt (around $9.50)
Baked blush in 215 Golden Flare (around $7, but got 1/2 off)
 Violet Volt - swatches
Pigmentation was actually pretty good.
I did have to go over the lighter purple shade 2 times, but it's better than other drugstore purples I have.
The darkest purple, while it swatches easily, doesn't exactly look like the pan - it looks more dark brown... 
 Golden Fuse blush - swatches
left swatch is unblended; right is blended out
very sparkley/glittery; lightly applied to the cheek, I didn't notice it (but the lighting in the room was pretty crappy so I'll have to see what it looks like in daylight/sunlight)

After the sale discount (and adding in tax), my total was a little under $14.

After seeing how sparkley the Golden Fuse blush is, I'll probably skip on the other one (Wild Blossom) that initially caught my eye.  Right now I'm also waiting on purchasing the neutral colored eyeshadow palette.  If I see them on clearance, then I might get them, but for now I'm waiting (or skipping).  But I did see swatches of one of the Vivids and it does look pretty I'm kind of thinking about getting it.  

Have you seen this collection yet?  Anything catch your eye?  Did you get it yet?
