Walgreens Haul/Review!

Hey all! So I work at walgreens therefore I get an employee discount so I buy a lot of my drugstore finds there! Today I'm gonna show you what I got and what I think about them!

First of all, I got the Rimmel London Clean Finish foundation. I really like the formula; it's very creamy and bendable! It doesn't feel heavy at all (extreme plus!) and it makes me look mostly poreless without clogging my pores! Only negative about this product is the applicator attached to the cap. I'm sure you could clip it off or just not use it. It's not like it's a bad applicator, I mean it's alright, but it's just different. Overall hit though, I love it!
 Then there's the Milani Baked Bronzer! It comes with a mirror and a brush which is alright, really dense! The bronzer does a great job of giving me a glow without looking like I'm wearing a ton of makeup! It doesn't highlight very well, though and it maybe TOO natural. Overall it's a great product though!

Next, I got the Mayelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch. I needed a new lip balm and wanted to see what all the rave was about with this product! It gives your lips a BEAUTIFUL pink color, however it is not subtle for the faint of heart! I figured it would be more moisturizing and less color but boy was I wrong! I have very dry lips and this just made it worse :( the color settled into the dry cracks of my lips instead of whisking them away! So I had to buy a different lip balm to make up for the lack of moisture!
I got the ChapStick Ultra Moisture Lip Protectent/Sunscreen (SPF 15) So far so alright. It tastes disgusting (good for those who are trying to stop biting their lips!) and doesn't smell too good. It feels like it sits on my lips instead of going down deep but they're not as chapped so it must be working? Not the best, but it's alright!
This right here is probably my favorite thing I got. I wanted a new, bold mascara for the school year! I was going to get the Maybelline Mega Plush mascara but all the reviews I saw said it was great for lengthening but not thickening which is what I wanted! So I decided to go this route, and what a good decision it was! This is probably the best mascara I've ever used. It takes close to no effort to get my lashes looking thick, black and noticeable! It doesn't lack on the lengthening end either! (though that could be due to my good genes and handy dandy spring loaded eyelash curler...) either way it's a great formula that doesn't flake too bad (i'm an eye rubber :/ stupid contacts) and doesn't weigh down you lashes! Love love love love love this!

Last but not least, these miscellaneous items! Lets start with the Finishing Touch Smile Whitening Pen. So unfortunately I have not the whitest teeth in the dentist's office. When I used this product for the first time I noticed an almost immediate difference! However the next day was less noticeable, which is expected.  This may be due to the fact that I can never tell if the gel has come onto the brush or not...(applicator is similar to Stila's or ELF's lipshine)
Onto the Loreal Sublime Bronze ProPerfect Salon Airbrush Self-Tanning Mist. Wow that's a mouthful. I love that it's a spray not a lotion! It does make a difference and I love that it doesn't wash out in the shower! However, if you apply too much at once you can turn orange. Be careful because you will not see results right away so you may think that it isn't doing anything. It's water resistant which I love (short story time! one time i self tan sprayed myself and someone spilled water on my leg...the tan came off and revealed my white skin in the middle of the tanness. Very noticeable!) There is no streaking (yay!!) it dries fairly quickly however since you can't see where you're spraying really it's easy to miss spots...but I love the circle applicator! Since it is so water resistant, it you make a mistake you can't blend it later on when you can see it :/ other than that fantastic product!

Hope you guys enjoyed! Let me know what you think of the products if you've used them in the comments!
