Hi guys! Wednesday evening I was experiencing quite a bit of pain and irritation in one of my eyes which just seemed to get worse as the night progressed. I decided to try to go to sleep to see if I would wake up and feel better (I feel like this is my body’s equivalent of trying to restart a device when you’re troubleshooting). The pain was so unbearable I barely slept so on Thursday when I woke up to a totally bloodshot eye, I decided to take a trip to the Emergency Room. After a very quick visit (so thankful it was quiet in the morning!) I learned I had an abrasion on my cornea. While waiting for my prescribed eye drops at Shopper’s Drugmart I decided to browse and treat myself to a few things! Thankfully the freezing drops were still working from the ER so I could handle daylight… Once they wore off… it was shut curtains and sunglasses indoors for me because when you have an abrasion on you cornea the sun feels like laser beams.
Let’s take a look at what I purchased to lift my spirits!
I’ve had my eye on the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams for awhile. I’ve seen mixed reviews on them, but I want to try them myself. They have a bit of a mousse-y texture so I’m looking forward to trying this on my lips! I picked out the shade San Paulo. I also picked up the Essence Get BIG! Lashes Mascara as I’ve really enjoyed the other items from Essence that I have tried so far! I like a variety of different types of mascaras on-hand so I decided to go for a volume-boosting formula. Can’t wait to try it!
Also from Essence I decided to try out their The Gel Nail Polishes. These require no lamp and claim to last 60% better (Better than what? Normal polish I guess?). I chose the shade Play With My Mint as I’ve been loving minty-greens lately. I’ve already applied it to my nails (which I’ll be posting on Mani Monday) so we’ll see how the wear-time is by then! Since I didn’t have anything from this line I picked up the Base Coat and Top Coat. I’ve also been out of my Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water for quite some time and it was on sale so I grabbed another one!
So, that is what I picked up! A huge thank you to my lovely sister for taking me to the ER this morning as I wasn’t able to drive myself due to my eye. My eye already feels a bit better from the eye drops that were prescribed. I need to keep using them for 7 days and I can’t wear my contacts at all until after that. Depending on how my eye looks I probably won’t be posting any makeup looks for awhile.
So, have you picked up anything great from the drugstore lately? Let me know in the comments down below!
