If you recall the Wet n Wild Spring Forward Color Icon Eyeshadow Palettes Collection featuring Going in the Wild and Nude Awakening Eyeshadow Palettes was released around the same time last year!

New Mini Covergirl Tru Magic

Covergirl Tru Magic Minis

If you’ve been to try out the Covergirl Tru Magic Skin Perfector Mattifier or any of the new Tru Magic products you can do so with the new Covergirl True Magic Minis. These new mini Tru Magic products are available at Walgreens for $4.99 on sale (regularly $5.49) versus the full size price of $10.99.

Each mini is available in the original Skin Perfect Mattifier formula as well as the Shimmer Luminizer and Bronzer Sunkisser. These weight in at 0.8 oz each versus the original .27 oz size.

This is a nice way to check the product out and see how your skin reacts to it without committing to the fuller size. It also makes for a nice way to travel with the product! I’ve likened the formula to Mally Beauty Poreless Face Defender but I must admit I do like Mally’s version best of all! Youngblood also makes a version called Anti-Shine Mattifier.
