Beauty on a Budget Spotlight: New Makeup Available At The Drugstore

new in Beauty drugstore

If you’ve been reading Musings for a while, I’m sure you recall the days that I didn’t review drugstore brands (US ones anyway). Things have changed considerably in the last year or so and I’ve embraced alot of US drugstore brands as I wanted to cover all aspects of beauty not just high end but also lower.

This past Spring (and some of Summer if you consider it Summer already) has been an incredible time for drugstore releases. Makeup quality has changed in the past few months as have the releases in store which had made going to my local drugstore a rather fun experience rather than a chore. Granted, not ever release is a good one but hunting down new products and finding gems in the rough so to speak is always great fun.

Do take a look at the slide show below for some of the latest and greatest releases that are available now at your local drugstores. Some are well worth checking out!

Have you hauled any of these items or collections for yourself?

Maybelline Salsa Sun Collection Review: Maybelline Salsa Sun Lipgloss Review

Maybelline Salsa Sun Lipgloss 2

The limited edition Maybelline Salsa Sun Collection should be guest starring at your local drugstores. Keep in mine their are two separate displays for this release one contains the Maybelline Salsa Sun Color Collection and one contains the Maybelline Salsa Sun Lipgloss Collection. All of the pieces in both collections are limited edition so if you find that you’re lemming anything after this review, I’d highly suggest heading out to snag it because the few times I’ve seen the collection it has been very picked over with little to nothing left. Heck I had to visit two separate drugstores just to get some of the color and some of the glosses.

Jump ahead to hear about the Maybelline Salsa Sun Lipglosses!

Maybelline Color Sensational The Pearls Lipstick Review and Swatches

Maybelline Color Sensational The Pearls Lipstick 1

Anyone try out the new Maybelline Color Sensational The Pearls Lipstick Collection yet? I was fiddling about with these several days ago at my local drugstore. I thank the makeup gods daily that Maybelline gifts us with Color Sensational Lipstick packaging that isn’t SEALED. I hate a sealed lipstick…OMG annoying. How am I supposed to know what it looks like if I can’t twist it up and have a little peeky?

Anyway….

Maybelline Color Sensational The Pearls Collection is basically the newest extension to the Sensational Lipstick line which sports a pearl finish. Now….I dunno if these are LE. I’m going to say no but I’m not really sure in all honesty.

After twisting up every single tube (there was a girl stocking in the aisle as I twisted, she must have thought I was loco) I came to the conclusion that these so reminded me of the MAC N Collection.

I HATED the N Collection. Way too modd-y nude for me. Well…moral of the story is The Pearls have some mod nude shades I so couldn’t pull off even if I wanted to.

However, I did strike gold with one shade which was Coral Gleam.

Cheap Beauty to Love On

Cheap Cosmetics

Ahhh….who doesn’t like a good deal? Some of you REALLY like a good deal and in some cases aren’t interested in dishing out $15 or more on makeup. It’s ok, some of us just aren’t up for splurging on cosmetics particularly in this economy. I’m sadly of the mentality that you get what you pay for but let’s be honest here, sometimes cheap isn’t THAT bad right?
