I went on a drugstore run the other day (for me, this means Müller and/or dm) in order to pick up a few replacement items. Of course, I wouldn’t be me if I managed to walk into a drugstore and left with just the things on my list. I, of course, spotted a few new things, and couldn’t resist. But, before I dive in to the new stuff, let me share what I actually went to the store for.
I first went to Müller, mostly because it was closer to me at the time. I need to get a few essence pencils – a lipliner in Wish Me A Rose, because I cannot find my old one and I’ve been wanting to use it a lot lately, and an eye pencil in Berry Merry, which I had ended up using completely up. I’ve raved about this eye pencil before and had been meaning to grab a new one for awhile. I was going to also pick up the Manhattan Endless Perfection Make Up in Light Porcelain at Müller as well, but for some reason someone had opened both available bottles and used the pumps on each of them. That’s gross and unnecessary, because there was a tester tube right below them.
I’ve been wanted a replacement of this foundation for awhile. I originally purchased it several weeks ago and had really been liking it, but then I dropped it on the floor.
My fiance tried to “fix” it for me, which is why the bottle is covered with tape, but I didn’t want to rub glass into my face, so I threw it away.
I ended up finding a clean bottle at dm, thankfully. I realized when I was in Müller that I needed to go to dm anyway, because Müller’s cotton rounds frankly suck. The last tube I bought was from their Duchesse line and the rounds kept coming apart when I would try to get them out of the package. The dm ones hold together much better. I use cotton rounds daily for makeup remover and my Garnier Micellar Water and I like them better than cotton balls for removing nail polish.
That’s all I meant to pick up, but of course that didn’t happen. The new stuff:
Like I said, I have trouble going into a drugstore and not buying something new. When I was in Müller picking up my pencils, I took a look at some of the eye pencils that I didn’t already have. Hot Scorch looked like it would be a nice addition to my essence eye pencil collection. It’s a pretty metallic bronze, and I think it will do a good job helping looks transition from late summer to early autumn.
When I went in to dm, I was met with a glorious sight. I had notice a new line popping up here and there on instagram, but I hadn’t seen any physical evidence of it until now.
It seems that dm has a new exclusive line called trend IT UP – why dm cannot follow normal capitalization conventions, I can’t understand, but I’ll just write it like they do. I supposed this line is aimed at a younger and hipper crowd than their regular p2 line. The packaging is mostly matte black, giving it an overall sleek appearance. I decided to restrain myself and pick up only two lipsticks at 2,25€ each. I grabbed one Ultra Matte and one High Shine so that I could compare them, and I’ll have a full first impressions up for the next post.
Lastly, I had to run by Tedi to pick up some cheap batteries – Tedi is our all around cheap crap store. I’m proud of myself, because I only bought one notebook instead of 500 little things. I was using my trip to America as an excuse to shop for a new notebook, and then had to get this one because it has little country stamps on it – include several USA stamps. It’s perfect for travel!
Are you able to stick to your lists? Or are you like me, and you inevitably stock up on more stuff?
