Haul: Target and CVS items

I bought some items in Target and CVS, haven't used them as yet, but wanted to post the haul and ask you guys about the products.   They are new to me and I bought them to try them out.  I'm looking for a nice face wash to go along with a wash i'm currently using [I will post the brand and type later].  I'm so into nail polishes right now, so when I was at CVS i saw the brand Confetti, never saw/heard about them before, and thought i'll try them out.  So i bought two fall shades to try out.
Here's what I got:
  • Up & Up facial astringent acne medication sensitive skin [very anxious to try this]
  • Up & Up maximum strength acne medication benzoyl peroxide gel [tried this last night] will do a review in a few days
  • Clean and Clear Morning Burst Detoxifying Facial Cleanser
  • Neutrogena Body Clear body wash [bought this for my niece she's 11yrs old and her upper  body is breaking out bad]
  • Sally Hansen Moist and Matte liquid lip color in Velvet [never saw this before in my life, but was curious as to it being liquid and still giving that matte look.  its a great fall color too.
  • Confetti nail polishes in 055 Dressed to the 9's and 041 Masquerade Ball [looking at them from the bottle the consistency look a bit on the thin side, which means that the color is buildable.  not sure if i would like that or not.. gotta try it and let you know
If you have tried these products before let me know how they work for you.  I will definitely do some reviews after I've tried them a bit.  But so far I'm impressed with the Up&Up Maximum strength acne medication used it last night and pimple is almost gone :)

Project 10 Pan

So I've decided to start another Project 10 Pan

  1. Elf Pressed Powder in caramel [used for summer]
  2. Elf Warm Bronzer 
  3. Sacha Fix-It Spray
  4. Rimmel London Fix and Perfect
  5. Victoria's Secret Pro Airbrush Fx Face Primer
  6. Smashbox Photofinish Face primer
  7. Urban Decay primer potion
  8. Mac Zoom lash mascara
  9. Avon eye pencil in dark brown
  10. Nyx lip liner in coffee
The latter two I had from my last project 10 pan, they are never ending.  I almost use them every day and they wont seem to finish.  I plan on doing a review on them, one thing for sure I can say is that they last very long, definitely a bang for your buck.

The pressed powder had hit pan for about two weeks now, and the bronzer for about a month now.  Hopefully by the end of the month they will finish. I think I will have self control in not buying anything.  I will however, need to replace my pressed powder and my bronzer when they are finished, so I will definitely report on them.

Haul: Makeup Palettes

So after watching Aesthetic Glory and another makeup guru, whose name i can't remember now, I decided to venture out to Pennywise to get a few inexpensive palettes.  The brands: Arista and Starry.
I bought palettes a few years back from Starry and Arista, but threw them out last year for fear they had gotten old.  These brand actually is extremely good.  The Starry shadows are very pigmented and the staying power is great with a primer.  I will do a review on this palette another time. 
The Starry Palette cost around $8.99 and there are three available at Pennywise.  The Arista palette cost $19.99.  For those of you who don't know, Arista is made from the same company as Sacha, its just considered a lower end product.  The palette i choose I absolutely love the colors. 
The pictures I took out of the Starry palettes did not come out too well, they do not do justice to the colors

I will do swatches and a review on each palette after I have tried them out a few times.  I am about to venture on a project 10 pan, so I will try as much as possible to abstain from purchasing :).  I still have to post some other haul pictures from my last trip to the US.
