Drugstore Haul


Hi guys! I ventured into Shopper’s Drugmart yesterday and found quite a few items that I’ve been thinking about purchasing on sale so I decided to take some of them home with me. I almost never go into Shopper’s Drugmart to buy makeup since if I buy anything drugstore I usually just grab it while I’m grocery shopping. However, I saw over on Stashmatters’ Instagram that she spotted a NYX display at her local Shopper’s so I had to see if we had one too. I was super surprised to see that we did!

I had been wanting to try the NYX Micro Brow Pencil for quite some time so that is the item I went for when I saw the NYX display. It is supposed to be a dupe for the ABH Brow-Wiz. I’ve only ever swatched the brow-wiz in a Sephora (they didn’t have my colour in stock so I couldn’t take it home with me) but they do seem very similar. I can’t wait to try penciling in my brows with it! I purchased the shade taupe.

The Maybelline Colour Sensational Creamy Matte Lipsticks is another product from the drugstore that I’ve been eyeing up. They were on sale (and super picked-over) but I managed to grab one in the shade Mesmerizing Magenta. It’s a very pretty bright pink shade and it definitely felt creamy to apply when I swatched it on my arm.

The Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara has also been on my list of products to try. It was on sale so I finally picked one up. I chose Blackest Black since I only ever wear black mascara. I have very high hopes for this after all the glowing reviews I have seen.

I picked up another Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure nail polish after the success of my last manicure with a polish from this line. I’m hoping this one wears just as well! I’ll be sure to feature it in a Mani Monday soon! I picked up Commander in Chic which is a purply brown shade.

Last but not least, I needed a new exfoliating face wash so I decided to try the St. Ive’s Black Head Clearing Green Tea Scrub. It’s a natural exfoliant and is supposed to be gentle. The texture reminds me of a mud mask so I’ll be keeping this in the shower since it looks messy. I’m excited to see how it works out, this winter has graced my skin with dry patches that don’t get along with my matte foundation.

I can’t wait to try out these items and update you on how they are working out. If there are any detailed reviews you would like to see, please let me know in the comments and I’ll try to get to those first!

  1. Oh nice, glad your SDM got NYX too! Was your display super picked over?
    I have the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara in my stash to be used next – I’ve heard so many raves about it. I hope it’s good. I typically hate Maybelline mascaras – they always smudge on me.
    I had Commander in Chic – it’s very similar to Essie Merino Cool:

    1. It surprisingly wasn’t that picked over at all! But I pretty much grabbed the Micro Brow and then made myself back away haha… I’ll have to take a better look next time and grab some more products to try!

  2. The Lash sensational isn’t in packaging in the UK, or where I’ve seen it, it’s just a tube to pick up! Love the lipstick and nail colour!

    1. Oh weird! All of our mascaras seem to come like this here in packaging. Seems a lot less wasteful to just have the tube on its own though!

  3. Which Shoppers had the NYX display!? I didn’t notice one at the Shoppers near my house!

    1. The one at the McIntyre Centre 🙂
