Multiple Summer Mini Hauls from Walgreens & Rite Aid!

Hi!
**all items purchased by me

Time to share some more shopping that I did during middle to late summer.  Man, am I behind or what?  I guess that I just got so caught up in doing Spotted, Hauled & Swatched posts while they were relevant that ones that weren't full collections got forgotten about in the folders.  Anyway...today I've got pretties that I picked up during a couple trips to Walgreens and 1 to Rite Aid (all sprinkled throughout the season).

First let's see what I got from Walgreens back in July (oops):
 I spotted the Fergie 2013 limited edition collection at a Walgreens I really don't go to often shortly after watching a video featuring one of the glosses from the display, so I had to pick it up...and I found a new set of EcoTools brushes (and they were on sale!):
EcoTools 6 piece Day-to-Night Clutch set  
Wet 'n Wild Fergie Perfect Pout Lip Gloss in Hot, Hot, Haute
 close-up of brush heads while still in packaging
~this ended up being not as pigmented as I was hoping...I have such a hard time getting glosses to show up like what shows in the packaging~

Now let's jump ahead to the middle of August when I was probably looking for new/limited edition collections and coming up a bit short.  Instead, I finally got one fun thing and one makeup item:
Jordana 12 Hr Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil in 01 Eternal White
~I believe it's supposed to be a dupe to Nyx's Jumbo pencil in Milk
~I'm hoping that it's formula is like it's sister company, Milani's, since those wear better than the 2 I got from L.A. Colors a while ago

And now let's go see what I bought from Rite Aid back around the beginning of September:
 Sinful Colors in Skylark and Graine De Poivre
~both limited edition~
~this is also when I spotted all the Pumpkin Polishes and bought one 
(probably why this particular store's haul didn't get posted closer to when it happened)~

If you just look at the amount of items I bought and featured in this post, it doesn't look like I bought much during the summer season, but if you see how many other hauls, and especially the Spotted, Hauled & Swatched posts, I definitely did some serious shopping.  At least I can say that the majority of what I purchase is drugstore pricing, although that seems to be slowly changing since skincare that I've purchased from the drugstores doesn't seem to work well with my skin any more...and it sure is fun playing in all the higher-end pretties at Ulta.  

See anything here that you have and enjoy?  Is your makeup or polish collection made up of more drugstore items or higher end?
