Drugstore Haul :: Fun New Goodies and Glitter

I have been wanting to get the Butter Bronzer from Physician’s Formula so I went to CVS. I ended up picking up a few extra things too!

ONWARD!

FullSizeRender

The Goods

  • Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer -This smells amazing BTW!
  • Wet n Wild Megaglo Illuminating Palette- Catwalk Pink
  • Wet N Wild Coloricon Eyeshadow Glitter- Vice, Bleached, Brass
  • Wet N Wild Felt Tip Proliner
  • NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil- Milk

Swatches

FullSizeRender_4

The NYX Pencil and the WnW eyeliner. I am most excited about the NYX. Hoping it works well for my lower waterline.

FullSizeRender_3

The bronzer. This is so smooth and buttery, I have a feeling I will really love this. Also again, can I mention how amazing it smells!

FullSizeRender_2

The illuminating palette. The top is them all swished together, and the bottom is them all separately. I think this is realllllly pretty.

FullSizeRender_1

The glitter, in Vice, Bleached, and Brass. These glitters have mixed reviews. some say they slide off eyes. They are basically glitter mixed in with some type of balm. I got this to add a touch of glitter to my eyes, and for only a buck apiece I figured they were worth trying out. I will review these soon (so stay tuned)

Thats my little haul. I would have gotten more but they were doing inventory when I went there, and I didn’t want to be rude and get in there way while they worked.

Let me know if you all have an experience with these products!

Unboxing :: My New Chikuhodo Z-1 Powder Brush

Ok, ok…. I got one! I mentioned I wanted to try out different artisan Japanese brush brands. I adore my Kashoen, and although my Sephora Hakuhodo collab brushes I wouldn’t consider true Hakuhodos, they are created by them. There is also Suqqu as well. So I wanted to purchase a few things from Beautylish (they have Wayne Goss Brushes there) I actually ended up originally just getting a Liquid Lippie from Jeffree Star (Doll Parts) and I also picked up a Sisley Quad Eyeshadow palette. Sadly the color of the palette was completely different then what they sent me. And since their makeup is HELLA EXPENSIVE, and my new YSL Palette had the exact same colors I returned it . I want to say,I hate returning cosmetics, but this was completely Beautylish’s error and I never touched it other then to open the quad to inspect it, and Lord it was expensive.

IMG_4874

SO I exchanged it for a Chikuhodo Brush! I was trying to figure out which one exactly I wanted. I was torn between  the Passion Series PS-1 Powder,Makie Series MK-1 Powder,GSN Series GSN-1 Powder and the Z Series Z-1 Powder. At first I saw drawn to the larger ones but I decided on the Z-1 because it looked like it would also be great for my powder contours as well. Also being very soft was the best for sensitive skin.

I will say one thing. Although it was Beauylish’s error they were easy to work with and return the product. So so far I am happy with their customer service.

Ok, so I got my package today! so here are the pics and then my initial thoughts on the brush.

FullSizeRender

This was a giant box for the brush, which I guess was to ensure it arrived safely

FullSizeRender_1

FullSizeRender_2

Initial thoughts at this point was they need to step up their packaging game. If you remember my Kashoen unboxing post, their packaging was on point. This was packaged like it was a drugstore brush.

and the brush!

FullSizeRender_3

FullSizeRender_4

Aside from my disappointment in the packaging (I don’t think that was from Beautylish. I think that was all on Chikuhodos end), my initial reactions where positive. The handle is very pretty and elegant, and OMG the bristles. The softest bristles I have ever experienced. The bristles of this brush are Gray Squirrel.

Info on this brush (from Beautylish’s website)

  • The Z Series Z-1 is a powder brush with bristles made from the hair of gray squirrel. The bristles are 45mm in length, with the total length of the brush being 160mm.

I haven’t used it yet but I will tomorrow. Expect a proper review very soon! I am super excited to try this brush out! ❤
