Makeup wonders never cease to amaze me. I remember a time…now I’m going to start sounding like my father reminiscing about how he had to walk to school, in the snow, with no shoes on, and the school happened to be a hike from his home town of Arcos (p.s. if you clinked that link, my cousins and I used to swim in that lake as a child! True story!) all the way to Lisboa, but I remember a time when drugstore makeup was something I turned my nose up to. It simply wasn’t something I wished to indulge in here in the US. Granted, outside the US I was more than happy to toss my hard earned money at drugstore fare from Asia, the UK, and Europe but not from brands here in the US because it simply wasn’t a formula I was interested in.
Let’s face it, some drugstore makeup does suck. Agreed?
But times they are a changing and many brands are stepping up their game in a MAJOR way. Take the new Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR Eyeshadow.
Now this I’ll gladly toss money at!
Maybelline seems to have some updates on the horizon for Spring 2012 when it comes to their Dream Mousse Collection. Many of the products are available on clearance at the moment in various drugstores (particularly CVS) I’ve been to lately. No worries though the collection isn’t disappearing for good merely being replaced by brand new offerings.
From what I heard the glass jars that the Dream Mousse products came in failed to keep the product fresh, this is unconfirmed of course, but it could be one of the reasons we are seeing newly packaged products. This, and of course, Spring 2012 is on the horizon a good enough time to start launching brand new products.
One of the more interesting products I’ve had my eye on was the new Maybelline Dreamy Bouncy Blush.
Take a look!
Mousse Foundation is on the scene for Spring 2012. Revlon already has one available that’s in drugstores now and the new Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam is next up!
These foundations are air infused for a creamy, whipped up foundation that supposed glides on flawlessly.
Count me curious!
Available soon at drugstores.
Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush?
While browsing around Target the “new” section displays a very itty bitty photo of a possible new blush coming at us from Maybelline. I don’t have a ton of info on this one but looks like it’ll be a Spring 2012 release.
How dreamy would it be if Maybelline did a new mousse concealer for Spring as well? I so miss their Dream Mousse Concealer….!
This is actually a powder that promises to “melt” into skin like a cream!
Thanks to CJ for pointing out this is on Walgreens.com already, here’s a cleared pic!
Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Eyeshadow will be available in 10 shades (tentative) and are a range of new cream shadows that promise a 24 hour hold, mmm, that’s debatable considering last year’s fiasco with the Color Gleams. Ugh those were awful!
Regardless, I’m still quite excited about these!
