If you are a not-so-closet product junkie like myself, you’ll understand the excitement that comes when a brand launches something new, or when you discover a new product in the drugstore. I mean, it’s like Christmas! I picked up a few bits that were either recently launched or newly added to my local drugstore. Some not so new, some I’ve never seen before. Let’s get to it!
+Garnier Clean Nourishing Cleansing Oil
This caught my eye because cleansing oils are such a hyped up product right now. This one is great for removing kind of the first layer of makeup and dirt, and cleaning all that off of the face. I don’t use this as my only cleanser, but if you have dry skin and are looking for a nice, affordable oil cleanser, I recommend this one.
+Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation in 150 Nude
I tried this foundation out about 2-3 years ago and absolutely hated it. It was around the time that I was completely convinced that I could not wear drugstore foundations. It didn’t help that it was like 3 shades too dark as well. But while I was browsing the aisles, I saw this was on sale 50% off, so I just decided, what the hey, give it another go. I’ll report back when I’ve given it a try.
+Nyx Rouge Cream Blush in Natural CB02 Natural.
I remember when Fleur, from FleurdeForce, talked about this in one of her 10 under 10 beauty videos. I remember thinking how beautifully natural and pretty the blush looked and somehow, I forgot about. Luckily, I noticed that this was also on 50% off so I threw it in with my stash. I tried this on when I got home because I was that excited, and I can already tell you, I love this little blush. Such a pretty, barely there pink, and the formula is creamy but not too sticky or oily. big yes!
+L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow in Smoldering Plum (see in action above)
These little pressed pigments are so great. They pack a serious punch of color, and make a great one product smokey eye. This is a deep, shimmery plum-purple, which I love wearing as eyeliner or as a smokey, sparkly eye with tons of mascara. I have my eye on a few of the other shades as well.
+Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Striking
I love these matte balms. So much. I wear Sultry almost everyday, but decided to pick up a brighter one. While I think this is a beautiful color, I think it is more suited to spring-ish seasons, so I’ll be saving this for then.
+Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquers in Stellar
Another lip product that I love and am saving for summer/spring is this little beauty. This is my fourth Show Off Lip Lacquer and I am still such a massive fan! Lipstick, stain, and gloss all in one. Very-opaque and bright.
+L’Oreal Boost It High Lift Creation Spray
For the girls (and guys) who need a little more lift and volume to your roots, I suggest giving this a try. It is a bit tricky at first, because it comes out like a hair spray, so it is possible to use way too much and thus create the “a-bird-just-landed-in-my-hair-and-now-I-have-twelve-million-knots” look which is painful and not cute. A little goes a long, long way. Just a light spray at the roots, a little shake and the messy look is there.
+L’Oreal Lock It Bold Control Hair Spray
My husband is a big fan of the Tresemme hair spray for his comb-over, but I recently bought him this to try instead. He likes a sturdy hold for his hair spray, being that he is out in all elements for his job. So far, I think he’s a fan. I’ve only tried this a few times, and I’m not a huge fan of how sticky it can be, but brushed through once, it gives a great hold.
So that’s a round up of a few product newbies that have found themselves at home with me. Have you tried any of these? Let me know in the comments!
