Small drugstore haul

Hey honeybees!! So I've been majorlly stressed lately! My husband is heading to BNOC in less than a month, which is a two month training course in the army, so we're currently trying to figure out the car situation. Right now we only have our Prius and he's heading down all the way to Ft. Benning, Georgia so he's gonna need a car to travel there,have transportation when him&the guys want to go to the pubs... just small little stuff that would be a major hassle if he didn't have a car. SO with that being said, It rests on me to find a job so we can afford the extra car payment/insurance and still have money to go out and have fun instead of bein stuck at home. Problem is, NO ones hiring... except fast food and I'm a fast food snob lol I eat it, I refuse to serve it lol. I've been putting in apps everywhere and NO callbacks ahhhh it makes me want to rip my hair out!! So if you believe in God or a "higher power", definitely send prayers that way for me.It would be MUCH appreciated!!!!
Anyway, enough depresso rambling, you can imagine I did what a responsible adult female should do when stressed: Shop... :P Ok so probably not the best thing but I don't know about you dolls but I shop when i'm stressed so I went a picked up a few drugstore items.


Cosmo (Miss Minka's looking gorgeous as ever!!)
Rimmels' New Extra Wow lash that I scored for 3.49!(Review coming)
NYC Extreme Glider lipgloss in Park Ave Pink
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Pink Pop
Maybelline Colorsensational High Shine Lipstick in Pink Freeze
Covergirl Lip perfection in Dazzle

So as you can see all the lippies are pink... I KNOW!! The girl who is afraid of bright colors is jumping in (during fall time I might add) to bright hot pinks... What can I say I never follow trends. lol I'm going through a huge pink stage. I've realised that I go through stages when it comes to makeup. I became obsessed with nudes and bought everyone I could find that matched my skintone, after that came a "your lips but better" infatuation. Next a red lip obsession,Now it is a love affair with pink <3 I'm ridiculous I know lol

Swatches:

Swatches are in order of the first picture. The maybelline (3rd) as you can see is pretty sheer but it still gives a nice pink flush on the lips, Its going to quickly become a staple in my everyday makeup I feel. I have no complaints about the others! I especially love Revlon Pink pop over a lipstick or just by its own. I haven't tried out Covergirls' Dazzle so when I do, I'll do a review :)


And that would be Will Farrell Rocking my world as always when I have a bad day!! Gotta love Stepbrothers!! I always laugh so hard when he starts crying like this lol


And my handsome little man curled up with me drinking chai tea and watching Black&white movies... He could tell I was stressed, usually he'll lay with his Dad (yes I'm a weirdo that calls myself a "dog mom" lol. Jack is like my child) on the couch while I'm doing stuff in my makeup room or writing a review snuggled up in bed but this time he curled right up with me <3 Love my Jack attack!!
And forgive his nasty fur he was playing with all the people at a picnic today and haven't bothered to give him a bath lol.

Do any of you fellow makeup junkies have a pink lippie you would recomend??? lol
Until next time
