Drugstore Haul! Revlon Kissable Balm Stains, Marcelle BB cream, Essie polish

This past weekend, I decided to treat myself to a few new pretties. I saw in the Shoppers Drugmart flyer that my absolute favourite BB cream by Marcelle was on sale for $17.99! It is usually $22.99 so I drove right over and bought a new tube. My first tube isn't gone yet, but I am not going to stop using this daily any time soon so I figured I might as well grab another tube while it was on sale. I wear this BB cream in Light to Medium. Marcelle recently released a third shade of BB cream, called Dark to Darker for darker skin tones. They've also released a new BB cream with SPF in it, if that interests you!
Essie 'buy me a cameo'
I also went to Walmart in desperate search for the new Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stains!! I've been seeing them on Canadian blogs but couldn't find them at my local Shoppers! I first grabbed a bottle of 'buy me a cameo' by Essie to replace a similar coloured polish that I had to throw away because it wasn't applying nicely anymore. Then I looked around for five minutes or so at the Revlon section of Walmart and could not for the life of me find the balm stains! I was going to give up when I noticed an end display and lo and behold, there they were!! Both of my most-wanted colours were still in stock so I grabbed them and skipped to the front cash register.

I have already worn Charm twice now, and I love it!! I really like how these apply so smoothly, and the 'stain' part of these products is fantastic! I will do a full review on them after I've used them a while longer, I think?

    1. good girl, love your willpower! I have enough lip colours to last me quite a while as well. These two should be my last new lip colours for a least a little while (I hope!).

    2. Yeah apparently all you need to do is put a drop of nail polish remover in the bottle and it works good as new.

  4. Soo many bloggers were saying Super store but I literally went searching 2-3 times and I could not find them. I eventually went to Wal-Mart as well, and didn't see them either lol, but my best friend told me they just arrived and are on for like $8.96, definitely better than Shoppers price. My best friend picked up charm for me, and I've really been enjoying it. Any other colors your interested in?

    1. YES my superstore didn't have any either :( I was bummed because I drove all the way there (totally out of my way) for them! and they weren't even there!

      Walmart's price is 3 bucks cheaper than SDM, so I would def only buy them there!

    1. I was so happy to find them finally! My superstore didn't have them in :(

  7. I just picked up Honey, Precious and Cherish and I love them! It's the kind of a stain I really like. It leaves behind the right amount of colour. Have you seen the new Marcelle Cream to Powder BB Creams? They come in large compacts. Then I saw that GOSH and Annabelle had their own BB Cream at Shoppers as well. BB Cream explosion!

    1. I did see the cream to powder, but I don't really see how that is a 'bb cream' then? IDK! haha. BB creams are definitely everywhere now, but I love Marcelle's and the price point is good so I don't see myself switching unless I hear some reviews about another fabulous one?

  8. I know exactly how you feel when you found the Revlon lip stains. Took so long for them to arrive in Canada!! But it's worth the wait, right? I'm loving all mine. Sometimes, I like to mix 2 colors and pretty impressed with the results.

    1. Ooh I should try mixing mine, they're in the same colour family so I bet it'd look good!
