Drugstore Makeup Haul


Hey guys! Oh, how much I've missed this blog! The reason I've been away, as per usual, was because of school and all that jazz, you know how it is… I’ve been wanting to write a new post for a while now, so I decided to just go for it. I wanted this post to be short and sweet, so I figured what's better than a big drugstore haul. 

I bought these products over the span of a month, and some I received as a birthday present from my amazing friends! I haven’t gotten around to trying them all properly, but I will leave my opinion on the things that I did try. Aahh, the feeling of fresh makeup products... 


First things first, these are the things that I was most excited about! I got a couple of these from my sister and some others from my best friend, Nour, and I was soo happy I got these (thank you guys!)... The NYX soft matte lip creams! The shades (left to right) are: London, Istanbul, San Paulo, Transylvania. I've heard the best reviews about these liquid lipsticks and everyone seems to adore them, and so when I finally got my hands on them, I felt like a little kid on Christmas. Everyone was right, these lip creams are amazing! The colour pay-off is so good, plus the shades and the lasting power of all of them are also amazing. Honestly, I have nothing bad to say about these so far. I will be doing a more in-depth review with swatches soon, so stay tuned! Along with the lip creams, I got this NYX retractable lip liner in the shade MPL01 Natural


Next up, I bought these two things from Wet n Wild. The Megalength waterproof mascara and the color icon blusher in Heather Silk. Wet n Wild are known for their highly-pigmented blushes and how good they are, so I'm excited to check this out!


Now onto Essence. Most of these products are actually repurchases of things that I've previously tried and love! The only thing that was a new addition is the Waterproof Eyeliner Pen. I bought this based on Tati's (GlamLifeGuru on YouTube) recommendation, I've tried this once and I'm hooked! I will be trying it out more and writing a post about it! I previously wrote a review on the I <3 Extreme crazy volume mascara, which you can find here. The lipliner shades that I got are 05 Soft Berry and 11 In The Nude. I also grabbed my favourite eyebrow product, their Eyebrow Stylist Set in Brunette.


Kinda saved the best for last here, with this Jordana Best Lash Extreme volumizing mascara. I was so excited when I found this, I know KathleenLights on YouTube loves this and I've heard lots of people talk about how amazing it is for how cheap it is. And they're right! It's a great mascara and gives heaps of volume and length, I love this and I'll definitely be repurchasing it! And yet again, a review will be up soon with before and after pictures so you can see how great it is!

Side note: I've been posting my makeup looks a lot on my Snapchat recently, so be sure to add me on there to see some sneak peeks of the products I'm using. My username on there is linakhalifa.


So that was all for this haul, I'm so happy with everything I got since they're all working great so far! I hope you guys enjoyed reading this and maybe added a thing or two onto your own wishlist! Thanks for stopping by!
