New Drugstore Spring 2013 Products for Maybelline

It seems like everyone is stepping up their drugstore game for Spring 2014. Maybelline is no exception.  I’ve ran into some displays at my local Meijer, Ulta and Rite Aid stores. Check it out!

Maybelline has released 6 shades of MasterGlaze cream blush sticks so far that I have seen. They are also releasing Master Hi-Light light boosting blushes and bronzers. I saw 4 blushes and 2 bronzers in the line.

New Color Show nail polish displays are appearing as well.

Covergirl Spring 2014 Releases are Hitting Drugstores:)

When I went to Rite Aid yesterday I found a new display from Covergirl.  I then went to Ulta and they had it there too so its very likely that one of your drustores either has it or will be getting it in really soon!

They are offering 3 new types of goodies here, 2 of which I picked up. I picked up one of the concealer sticks and also the “TruMagic Skin Perfector”. They also have 2 cream luminizers. One is a gold and the other a bronze. I think the bronze one is more suited for deeper skin types than mine, the other one could probably be worn by most people.  Of course, this is just a guess since I didn’t pick either one of them up, but I did use their testers (OMG thank you Covergirl for giving us testers, you are the bomb diggity dog!!) and those are my initial swatching thoughts.

Honestly, instead of my cheeks, my first thought upon swatching the gold highlighter (luminizer) was “I bet this would be really pretty layered over eyeshadow, right in the center of the eye for a pop of gold shimmer.  I may end up going back and getting it. Shocking I know! LOL  I have not had a chance to test the other two products yet.

So what are your thoughts?  Are you excited about any of these? Have you seen this or any other Covergirl Spring 2014 display in your drugstores?

Almay’s New Offerings for Spring 2014 Are Hitting Stores

So, I was browsing in Ulta and I ran upon some of Almay’s new offerings for Spring 2014.  I love this time of year because I’m always excited to see what is being brought to the drugstore market.

The first thing that I ran into was a new eyeshadow formula called “Shadow Softies”.  It feels like sort of a mix between the texture of Maybelline’s bouncy blushes and a regular powder. Its not cream, but its not powder. Its different for sure. I wish I had a better way to describe it. I was surprised that they provided a tester of one of the colors, which I appreciate. I think drugstore products would do themselves a huge favor by providing more testers. They would get less waste from people swatching salable items.

They are retailing at Ulta for $4.99 each, but you know how drugstore pricing goes, they may cost more or less depending upon where you buy them.

The “Shadow Softies” are not the only new thing on Almay’s release list. I also saw an “Almay Smart Shade” display. It has “Smart Shade CC Luminous Primer”, “Smart Shade Anti Aging Moisturizing Makeup”, “Smart Shade Moisturizing Makeup (Original formula)” and a new concealer with 2 different colors in each package. It appears to work for undereyes and face, but I didn’t pick any up so I can’t say that with 100% certainty.

Hourglass Liquid Lipstick in Icon Review

I tried and liked the Hourglass lipstick in Icon, but I didn’t like the smell. It smelled kind of oily. When I saw the same color in their liquid lipstick formula I thought I would give it a try.
