Mini Rite Aid Haul

I have a small haul I'd like to share with you!

I purchased four new Jesse's Girl eye shadows, and I am very excited. The shades are; Rouge Flambie, Secret Weapon, Hi-Ho Silver and Majestic Green. You probably know how I feel about this brand already, but if you don't, here's a link to my review;

It's so hard to pick up on the true duo-chromatic nature of these shadows. For example, Secret Weapon is a pure white base with blue and teal reflects. It's amazing, and I totally understand why it's called 'Secret Weapon". Hi Ho Silver has an almost rainbow effect to it. Either way, I'm really stoked about using these in a look soon.
They look a bit Christmas-y together... oops :)

The last thing I got was the New Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips gel eyeliners for green eyes. I am looking forward to reviewing this product fully for you since these seem pretty promising. The set comes with three gel eyeliners (my fave) that are meant to bring out green eyes. There's a medium to dark green, a dark purple and a black with teeny green flecks. The kit also comes with a cute brush, so for those of you that use the excuse of "I don't have a brush for gel eyeliner", you have no excuse!! ;) These come in shades for green, blue, brown and hazel eyes. There are also corresponding mascaras and eyeshadow palettes.
These run $10.95 at Rite Aid, and honestly, it's an amazing deal. $3.65 a piece!
I have a soft spot in my heart for Physician's Formula. After a horrible bout with pink eye in 2006, my eyes became extremely sensitive to lower end brands of eyeliner and mascara. Physician's Formula was the first eyeliner I used after that that didn't make my eyes a mess. The eyeliner was called Flatliner, and it was AMAZING, but I can't find it anywhere anymore. So, Dear Physician's Formula, bring it back!! Thanks.


  1. def never even heard of "gel" eyeliner lmao....they still make the old fashioned pencil kind? cause thats what i used lol you ever try amazon for the flatliner eyeliner? ive found some pretty cool stuff on that site anyway lol....

  2. Oh of course they still make pencil eyeliners!! I rarely use them because I like the precision of a brush and gel liners.

    Amazon scares for for purchasing makeup lol, but I haven't ever looked for it on there.

  3. i finally bought the gel eyeliner from cvs even though i live right next to one. I had wanted to buy it in the past but wasn't sure how i felt about it. I think its going to take some getting used to but overall i like how smooth it goes on.... now lets talk make up remover cause i cant get it off lol

  4. I'm really glad that you like the liners! Oil-based makeup removers will take it off, or facial cleansing cloths.
