Hey Dolls...in case you haven't figured it out by now...we live in Wyoming. Living in Wyoming is fabulous for many reasons...and both of us have tried to live in other places...and ended up coming back home. Wyoming is wonderful...you should try it out sometime.
One thing about living where we live, however, is that we don't have immediate access to Sephora or Ulta or Disneyland. The lack of Sephora and Ulta are the most prevelant to this post, however, because I want to talk about satisfying your beauty cravings when you can't just drive to either of these places...or even a mall, lets be real...without making sure you have a full tank of gas first.
Well...you go to Walmart. We go to Walmart. And believe it or not...we find something great almost every time we go. :)
At our most recent trip to Walmart, J picked up the Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips eyeliner for blue eyes. We have never had anything but awesome experiences with PF stuff before...so she's super excited to play with these three new colors.
K grabbed the Revlon Lip Butter in a soft pink color, Sugar Frosting. The color goes on like velvety, well, butter...doesn't dry out...and has a glossy shine that we love!
K also decided to try L'Oreal's new Voluminous False Fiber Lashes mascara in black lacquer. If you're going for "drugstore" cosmetics, you really can't get any better than the original Voluminous mascara. I like it even better than many "high end" mascaras I've tried. This new mascara seems to produce similar results to the original Voluminous line. These are good results...but there wasn't any noticeable, additional, length created from the fibers.
J grabbed a tube of Hard Candy's Sheer Envy Skin Perfecting Primer. For the price, neither of us has found a primer that we'd recommend more highly than this one. Very comparable to Smashbox's Photo Finish primer...for a fraction of the cost. We LOVE this stuff.
Finally, J also decided to try Revlon's Just Bitten lip stain in Forbidden. The color of the stain itself
went on darker than she had expected it to...(probably because she's used to glosses)...but it had pretty good staying power and didn't have to be reapplied often. The other side of the stick is a clear lip balm that gives the lips a little bit of shine, and softens them up quite a bit.
Overall, we were both excited about our Walmart goodies. We've heard other bloggers/vloggers claim that they wouldn't EVER use these "drugstore" brands...but as far as we're concerned, those girls are missing out. These products are awesome...and we know we'll find even more next time!
