Shannon's Combined Target & Walmart Haul
This is my combined Target and Walmart haul - which were done separately, at different times but instead of making separate posts, I'm just going to combine them into one. I currently use the Elf eyebrow gel and have no problems with it (other than product getting stuck in the bottom of the container), but I've heard great things about the Maybelline Great Lash Clear so I decided it was time to give it a shot. I had scoured Targets high and low for a few weeks and was never able to find the Clear variation -- so while at Walmart one day, getting some OTC medicines I spotted the mascara in the makeup aisle and snagged it.
The foundation is a whole new story. I was watching YouTube videos and somehow landed on a video (by randomly clicking on the suggested videos) where the girl (apologies but I can't remember who) was talking about how she loves this L'Oreal True Match foundation and she first learned of it because of Kandee Johnson. So I looked that Kandee Johnson video up (which she contours with a darker shade - which I won't do I rather bronzer) and started looking up different reviews on the product. I decided it was going to be best for me since my skin is SO hard to match due to the undertones in my skin. While at Walgreen's one day they had a whole display of every shade with a tester. I tested a few and found N7 which matched the skin on the back of my hand and wrist absolutely perfectly! I then went grab it off the shelf to buy it all excitedly .... and they were completely out! Off to CVS - they carried 7 shades but none in the color combo I needed. Went to Walmart - completely sold out of the shade I need. [I now realize a lot of people that live around me are N7's!] Went to the Target closest to me, nope not even an option as they only carried 7 shades. A few days later I went to the next Target up as I was running errands in the area and popped in and found THE LAST SHADE on the shelf! I then noticed they had concealers so I grabbed the matching concealer - held on tightly because if I accidentally dropped them I'd be out of luck since these were the last shades in the store in my tone. I purchased and my hunt was over!
Here's what I picked up:
- Maybelline Great Lash Mascara - Clear
- L'Oreal True Match Super-blendable Makeup - Classic Tan (N7)
- L'Oreal True Match Correcteur - Medium Deep (N 6-7-8)
