Flytraps, Nail Polish, and Walgreens

Today is fretfully hot out...ugggg. I am not the biggest fan of hot weather, I start to melt and then my makeup starts to melt and it's just not a pretty sight...bleh cue hashtag whitegirlproblems and realhousewives-esque problems, haha.  I had to run a bunch of errands and ended up at Bachman's (flower super-store) to get a Venus fly trap...well, there were only two aka twins aka they could not be separated soooo, I had to get them.
Buckled up and safe from harm in my car!

Then journeyed to Walgreens to pick up a prescription for my mom who is sick from dental surgery (ahh, eek, ick tmi) AND there were like twelve thousand sales and clearances for all of this makeup, so I got a couple drug store treats :D
 Wet n Wild Lipstick in Spotlight Red, Covergirl Lipstick in Spellbound, Covergirl Lipstick in Hot Passion.  I normally don't get drugstore lipstick just because I a) have so much lipstick in general and b) because I am a MAC and beyond lipstick snob, but they were suppppppppper cheap and I was looking for a bright candy red for summer, sooooo, went ahead and got...these...yes.  Anyway, I'm wearing one of the Covergirl lipsticks now and the color is very true to advertisements and it wears pretty nicely.  The only thing is it feels a tiny bit gritty, but otherwise good.  
 Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definers in Emerald Sparkle and Precious Gold, Wet n Wild Eyes Creme Shadow Pencil in Techno, and Wet n Wild Tri-Color Eyecon Shadow in I Dream of Greenie and Spoiled Brat.
 Reliving my childhood, no big deal, keep moving, all is right...
 Anyway, my mother who is actually the nicest and coolest got me all of these OPI Shatter Nail Polishes because she knows I'm obsessed with them and she went and got her hair done the other day and at her salon they had all of these shatter colors she had never seen or heard of, so she got me them :). It's really funny because she had to make the life or death decision on whether to get me the white shatter and she couldn't decide if it was cool or stupid and she asked three other people about it until it was determined that the white shatter is, indeed, cool. And it is.
Current nail polish through is OPI's Pirates Collection in Stranger Tides.  It's a really odd grey-green which I am now kind of obsessed with, figures. 
On another note, when I was getting this makeup from Walgreens, the pharmacy guy started giving me advice about what eyeshadows to mix with what colors and how the sparkles in the black would look good with the green and so on, it was very funny and amused me a lot.  I really like how the Wet n Wild eyeshadows tell you how to use and where to use their product because people could end up like me pictured above...hahahaha.  Yes, I'm excited to use those little sets and they come with instructions so I don't put eyeshadow on my nose and forehead.  What will they think of next?
