Drugstore Haul - [Revlon]

I stopped by CVS yesterday for a non-makeup related purpose, but i ended up getting a few things anyway because Revlon had a very convenient sale of Buy 1 Get 1 Free! I love those!...So i got a new foundation because my tan is dying - r.i.p ='( - so i had to get a lighter shade. I also got a Colorstay gloss which ended up being free (regular price i think is 8.99). Also they had what i call a "bargain bucket", which are the shelves with the clearance stuff =P. I found a pretty quad from Revlon for only 3.49! I had to get it. That's all i ended up getting.
Here's a picture of the products =)

Ok now ill give you more details and review...

Revlon Colorstay Foundation - 220 Medium Beige for Combination/Oily Skin
I don't know if this foundation is supposed to be liquidy but this specific one i ended up buying was and i didn't realize it in the store. It goes on very smoothly though and it's easy to blend so thumbs up for that. I'm still having issues finding my shade though =/ . I figured im more of a yellow shade which is so confusing because i was more of a brown-ish tone. Maybe because i was tanning then i stopped for a while now. Confusing but ill keep experimenting. All in all this is my top pick for drugstore foundation brand.

Revlon Colorstay 12hour eyeshadow - 09 Sterling Rose

The colors are really pretty but once i put them on they all seem to be lighter than you see them and they resemble each other a lot. I couldn't even tell the difference between the colors because they all seem to have a frosty finish so they match and blend with each other. The black is more like a dark gray. Also, the consistancy is a bit powdery. You have to really pack on the color. They're really pretty though. It all depends on how you use them with each other. I will do a look with them and once i get it right i will post it. For the price, it's not too bad.

Revlon Colorstay Mineral Lipglaze - 500 Lasting Shimmer
Well... I have to start out by mentioning the taste and smell. It's super weird! It's like plastic. Like on of those plastic pool floats. I think the color is too shimmery for me but its gorgeous. It's like a sandy color with a lot of shimmer. The taste and smell bugs me a bit but its still pretty. It lasts a bit and if you mix it with a neutral lipstick for example Revlons Nude Attitude Matte Lipstick. You can work with it different ways. All im sayin about this is that i'm glad it was free with the foundation lol

I actually have a monthly HG! My new Cocoa Butter lip balm. It was 1.79 from Walgreens and i've been using it non-stop since i got it. It makes my lips soft and peals off the dry skin off it. The taste isn't bad at all. For the price, i think it's a great product. I love it!
