Last night I was browsing around online and saw that Maybelline came out with their Limited Edition Scene on the Runway Collection for Fall. They came out with 4 Limited Edition Color Tattoo shades- Barely Beige, Gold Shimmer, Mossy Green, and Rich Mahogany. I picked up Barely Beige and Gold Shimmer.
I also saw online that the Barely Beige color is a close dupe for MAC's Bare Study Paint Pot. The only difference being that Bare Study has a slightly more yellow/gold undertone and Barely Beige leans more on the pearl-ish pink side.
When I heard about these I immediately told Brandon, my boyfriend, that I needed to go to Walgreens right then. IT WAS AN EMERGENCY! So we went around 9-something last night and I frantically searched the store then I finally saw them and ran to the display. It seemed that they had just put the display out because it was completely stocked (thank goodness!) So I picked up the 2 shades I felt I would use the most. To my surprise at the register, they rang up as BOGO 50% off. YESSSS! I secretly did a fist pull haha. I came walking out to the car with a cheesy grin on my face feeling so accomplished. I'm sure he thinks I'm crazy but getting drugstore limited edition products is a rush for me. It's seriously like a drug and it takes over my brain. I become so obsessed about finding the product and the fact that it's limited edition adds to the eagerness and excitement. I will go to any city that's relatively close just to get it. Then once I get it, it gets thrown into the black hole of makeup drawers and it's never seen again. just kidding!... but not really.
Haha ok so here are some pics and swatches of my latest find. Let me know if you've picked them up or have seen them at your local drugstore.
