Five drugstore products that I've never found

I love to read blogs and watch YouTube videos about beauty and makeup, among other things. This inevitably leads to me hearing people raving about certain products, which makes me want to try them myself. Obviously I don't just go out and buy all of those products (really... who has money for that?), but I like to find them in stores so I can add them to my wishlist. What's sad is when the products just aren't available where I are; I can't try samples or see them in store because they don't stock them where I live. Here are five "product finds" that I've never actually found... drugstore edition.

Everyday natural eyeshadows

These two cream eyeshadows are great for subtle, natural and simple looks, and are very affordable.

As you can see from the swatches, these two shades are beautiful and shimmery, and very natural. Because of this, I love to use them for an eye-opening, pretty but subtle look.

Currently Using: Body lotion

(Yes, those are fake flowers next to it, hahaha)

I got this body lotion as a birthday gift from a good friend of mine (see my early birthday haul) and I'm not 100% sure whether it's still available or not, but I'm guessing that all the scents have the same—or very similar—formulas. I use this lotion on my legs every other day after I shower, and it keeps my legs really smooth and moisturized. It makes me smell very sweet, but since I use it before bed, that doesn't bother me too much. (Don't get me wrong: it's a great scent, but personally I think it's a bit too much to be wearing out) What I love about it the most as a lotion is that it's super moisturizing, but doesn't leave my legs and hands sticky or slippery for too long; it sinks into the skin rather quickly. Overall, I think that this is a great body lotion for a good price ($12), and it's definitely worth trying!

Favourite Summer Lip Colour 2014

I've found it - the perfect lip product that I've been loving all summer. This product is the Colour Riche Balm by L'Oreal Paris in the colour 418 (Caring Coral) . It has a very luxurious, moisturizing formula and a sheer tint that creates the "my lips but better" look. It also has a shiny finish which I think is lovely for the summer; and better yet, it isn't even sticky, so my hair doesn't get stuck in it when it's down. (Let's be real here, we all have that one lip gloss that gets so much hair stuck in it)...
