The Beauty Box


Gorjana rings; L’Oreal Colour Riche Wet Shine Lip Stain in Infinite Fuschia and Endless Red; L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara


Earlier this week I came clean about my drugstore beauty department habit, and last night I went ahead and indulged it.  (In my defense, there’s a fabulous “Madmen Swank” birthday party going down this weekend, and I intend to go all out, the perfect lipstick included.)  The mascara was a no-brainer, grab and go purchase, but the lipstick took a little longer.  Do I want a stick?  A gloss?  I’m new to this whole lipstick thing, but it makes the browsing that much more fun.  (Have you ever taken a second to realize just how many options are out there?  Bananas.)  I made it home with two (couldn’t decide) shades of L’Oreal’s new Colour Riche Wet Shine Lip Stain.  I must admit, the “stain” part scared me, but once I got home (or sat in the car actually) and tried it, I loved it!  The Infinite Fuschia is more like a deep berry on me, and it completely changed my mind about bold pinks.  Stay tuned for the pictures to prove it.

And now, for the best part.  Every time you spend $30 on select beauty products using your Walgreens Balance Rewards card, you can head to to receive your complimentary beauty box.  Filled with fun samples, the beauty box is just the little something you need to keep you in the know.  I’ve got three new BB creams to slather on, a perfectly purse-sized sunblock, and a new razor to try out.  Isn’t it nice to be rewarded for buying things you would have bought anyway?  Happy Friday, everyone!
