CVS Haul (Feat. Almay & Milani)
Hey everyone! Yes, I hauled some Almay products again! Actually don't be surprised if you actually see more Almay products again. I am actually running low on my Almay concealer so I have been buying back-ups of it. Its a good concealer that covers well and doesn't break me out or irritate any of my blemishes. This haul was actually bought a few weeks ago when both Almay and Milani products were BOGO 50% off. I actually thought that it was a good deal (for me) since I need another back-up of the concealer and because I have been wanting to try my hand at a couple of liquid eyeliners. Milani is pretty well known for their pigmented eyeliners so I knew that I had to try a couple. Plus since Almay was on sale as well, I thought I might as well give some of their liquid eyeliners a try as well.
WHAT I BOUGHT:
◊ Almay Clear Complexion Concealer "200 Light/Medium" (X2)
I really love this concealer. I already have one that I am almost running out of. I will probably be cutting the one that I am using right now in half to make sure I can get every last product out before I have to throw it away. This is actually the one concealer that doesn't irritate my pimples when I cover them up with this. It is a bit light coverage but thats fine. Its supposed to "help clear and prevent acne blemishes", according to the actual packaging because it contains 1.08% salicylic acid. This actually the one product (well this and the Almay Clear Complexion liquid foundation) that made me want to try out other Almay products.
◊ Almay Liquid Eyeliners "222 Brown" & "221 Black"
I actually never tried any of Almay liquid eyeliners before and haven't heard any reviews about them so I thought I might as well try them out for myself. Plus since I don't have much experience with liquid liners, I thought I might as well try ones with different applicators. This one claims to last up to 16 hours, hypoallergenic, and water-resistant. Plus it comes in a little inkwell "pot" where the tip is the actual brush applicator. To get product onto the applicator, you just shake the whole product to get fresh color each time. You can get two different types of lines with this applicator, you can lightly apply it for a fine line or use a firmer touch for a bolder line.
◊ Milani Ultrafine Liquid Eye Liner "01 Black Vinyl" & "05 Sparkling Turquoise"
I actually never tried these eyeliners out before but I have heard a couple of good things about them. I was just going to buy two colorful eyeliners to use in the summer as a pop of color for the eyes but decided to just get one color and one plain black for everyday use, in case I end up liking it. These eyeliners claim to be waterproof and provide intense color with an ultrafine felt-tip applicator. According to the packaging, they are "long-lasting and smudge-proof with ultrafine, felt-tip applicator for easy application." Hopefully the black eyeliner is matte but if it isn't, I can probably just set it with a matte eyeshadow for that matte eyeliner look. I actually can't wait to wear Sparkling Turquoise in the summer because it looks like it will be a gorgeous pop of color with neutral eye looks. So that is all that I bought at CVS! I actually can't wait to try out all the eyeliners.
So far, I have already tried the Almay liquid eyeliner in black and I am still trying to get used to applying it. If you would like to see a review on any of these products, let me know and when I give them a try, I will post one! Also please let me know if you have tried any of these products and what you thought about them. Plus if you have any recommendations for the perfect liquid eyeliner for beginners, please comment before but I would love to know!
