Drugstore Makeup Haul With a Splash of Color

I have been loving color lately in clothes, makeup, and just about anything else.  I am usually a browns and grey kinda girl, but I think it's good to try new things and be a bit more girly.

Revlon Lip Butters:
I finally caved and bought a couple of the famous lip butters.  Yes, they are everything that everyone hypes them up to be.  I usually hate the feeling of lipsticks or lip-glosses, but these are actually tolerable and leave a nice color.  Tutti Frutti is the orange which looks amazing on the lips. Cherry tart is a redish color that makes your lips look like you just sucked on a cherry popsicle, if your are in to that kind of thing.

NYX Rouge Cream Blushes:
I always break out the cream blushes in the summer because they tend to stay longer in the hot and humid weather.  I recently purchased orange and hot pink (not very creative with the names).  I love them.  They are easily bendable, stay on the whole day, and have great color payoff.  A little goes a long way with these for sure.

Essie Nail Polish:
This is number 722 Haute as Hello.  I've heard great things about this color and I love Essie, but I was a little bit disappointed with the product.  It looks amazing in the bottle, a sort of orangey coral pinky color.  However, It takes 3 or 4 coats to get that nice color without any streaks in it.
