CVS Mini-Haul

I had a CVS gift card, some Extra Care Bucks, and a few coupons to use so I picked up several new things at CVS. I love not paying full price! My first impressions on the new loot:

L'Oreal Telescopic in Carbon Black
I'm waiting until I finish up my current mascara (Covergirl Lash Blast) to try this one seems like my friends either love it or hate it, so we'll see!

L'Oreal Million Lashes in Carbon Black
HG..this is one of my all time favorites. The waterproof version just does not budge, it's amazing. No flakes or smudging either. It's a little trickier to remove, but so worth it. Plus the gold tube is just so luxe!

Physician's Formula Powder Palette Mineral Glow Pearls in Light
I didn't really know what to expect from it a highlighter? Is it an all over luminizer? The pearls are so cute but I was surprised that this one looked darker than the one for medium skin. The silver compact feels kind of bulky and cheap, and of course the brush is useless (when are companies going to figure that one out?). I'm running low on my beloved MAC Mineralized Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle and thought this might be a suitable product to fill the gap before I can pick up a new one. When I swiped it on my wrist, I was pleasantly surprised to see there was no chunky glitter or obvious shimmer, just a slight bronze sheen. I use it on my forehead, cheeks, chin and Cupid's bow and have been loving the subtle "glow" it gives. I'm not giving up my MAC anytime soon, but I was pretty happy with this.

Wet N Wild Walking on Eggshells Trio
This is gorgeous! Definitely can see this becoming my "get out the door fast" eye. Very happy with the pigment and staying power of these.

Maybelline Color Whisper in Lust for Blush
A great pinky nude, and really moisturizing. Keeping this in my purse. I'm also eyeing up Pin Up Peach, but the display at CVS was practically ripped bare. 

Essie Turquoise and Caicos
Beautiful mint green. I can see me living in this once summer comes!

Sally Hansen Gem Crush in Showgirl Chic
These are amazing. I have the gold shade as well (Big Money) and love them for doing glitter tips. This one is silver with blue sparkles, it will look so good paired with the Turquoise and Caicos.

MorningStar Farms Tomato and Basil Pizza Burgers Review


When BzzAgent offered me the opportunity to review a MorningStar Farms product, I was a bit underwhelmed. We are pretty big meat eaters here and I had tried a few different brands of veggie burgers throughout the years that didn't appeal to me at all. I went in with an open mind, and my fiance picked up a box of the Tomato Basil Pizza Burgers. Unfortunately they contain mushrooms which I'm allergic to, so I left it up to him to be my guinea pig on this one. We grilled them on our George Foreman grill (can't wait for grilling season!), and I was impressed by the great grill lines-they actually looked like real burgers. They were starting to smell amazing by this point, and I really wished I could have had a taste. 

Grilled to perfection!

My fiance loaded them up with red onions, lettuce, tomato and cheese..if I didn't know better I would think this was one of his famous cheeseburgers! He said the taste was actually not bad..while it didn't exactly taste like beef, it was pretty good and would be a great option for anyone looking to cut back on calories while still enjoying their favorite meals. MorningStar Farms burgers can contain as much as 74% less fat than your average burger! Of course it's also a great way for vegetarians to get some added protein. They have a great selection of meatless products to try, from burgers to "chicken" nuggets. Give them a try and let me know what you think!
