Mini Haul | L'Oréal, Essence, Aveeno

Earlier today, I stopped by Shoppers Drug Mart to browse and didn't have anything in mind. Turns out I needed all of this! Yes, really...

First off, I spotted the large size of my holy grail body lotion - Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion - on sale! It's regularly $17.99, and it's worth it, but $9.99 is so much better.

Falling in love with something that has an expiration date is sad. Enter my latest favourite mascara, the Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara. I spoke about it in a tutorial previously (read here), and I am preparing myself to replace it. One of my favourite Youtubers, Barbara from The Persian Babe, uses this mascara and it appealed to me right away. This mascara generally seems to work well for people, so I'll give it a go!

Have you tried anything from the German brand Essence? I spoke about their eye primer in that same tutorial (read here), and have been making an effort to try their line. Actually, I had a tube of this in the nude 52 lipstick but seem to have lost it for good! I hadn't entirely decided on how much I liked it, but I can say that is it on the sheer side but in a wearable way. I'll let you know my final opinion (with swatches) soon.

Lastly, I needed a new black gel eyeliner as my previous Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama liner had dried up. The Maybelline one is a great pick, but having heard good things about the Essence liner in Midnight in Paris 01 and its ~$4 price tag, I was already decided.
