Covergirl Smoochies Lip Balm is a new variation on Covergirl Lipslicks that are available this Summer. I’m not really sure why they needed to go here as we already have Lipslicks and I’m not seeing much difference in the two formulas.
But this isn’t really the first product that Covergirl relaunched this season. Their new Creme Foundation and Shadow Pencils are also very similiar releases in new packaging.
However, if you like lip balms these might be worth exploring.
Here’s my review and thoughts.
Covergirl Flamed Out Shadow Pots are new single eyeshadows that the brand introduced for Summer 2013. These are available in twelve shades and are $3.49 at Harmons.
I don’t think Covergirl has done a single shadow pot before have they? I picked up a few on a whim as who knows they might prove good.
Take a look!
Some of Covergirl’s newest Summer offerings feel very retro. Covergirl Cleaned Whipped Creme Foundation is a perfect example of this as remember the old TRUblend Whipped Foundation I loved so much? Seems the same concept right?
Take a look!
Covergirl Flamed Out Shadow Pencils are a new range of chubby colored pencils that are launching in drugstores for Summer 2013. These quite remind me of Covergirl Eye Slicks which I’m unsure are even available anymore (Sorry, I don’t pay too much attention to CG’s offerings so I could be completely old school with the Eye Slicks reference).
These are available in ten shades and were $5.49 at Harmons. They had some tricked out colors which really sparked my interest like a gorgeous olive green and a flaming red!

Ha I didn’t know Nuance by Salma Hayek had a Cucumber & Rosewater Dual Phae Makeup Remover ($8.49). I ran out of Maybelline Clean Express and had some of those Beauty Bonus Bucks from CVS that I always let expire so I was determined to use them (I let one for $50 expire a few months ago and another for $10 and….and….)!
So I headed to CVS last night after having a rather delightful Italian dinner with some friends. I must have circled the aisles twenty times because nothing jumped out at me and I was almost ready to pack it and forget about the stupid bonus bucks when I noticed this makeup remover.
So that’s my story about discovering this stuff. And it was long and boring but you know I love to babble don’t you?
Cherie Merie is one of four new limited edition L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow shades launched with the Miss Candy Collection. This isn’t a new shade for some of you as you might have already gotten your hands on it in Canada under the name Pepsi Coral or in the UK as Magnetic Coral.
But I am happy to report that it is quite different from Magnetic Coral if you own that shade already. I can’t speak for Pepsi Coral though as I do not have it.
I personally adore corals as you know and this shade is no exception to the rule plus the formula is absolute perfection compared to other Infallible shades.

Four score and seven years ago the Muse was a younger girl and tried out Almay Longwear & Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Pads. This devil product nearly put me off Eye Makeup Remover for all time. It was greasy, oily, and it blinded me with science…not really science but it was cool to throw that in a sentence.
No seriously, they were so OILY that they ended up giving me trippy eye vision for hours after. I must have been 18ish or so when I first tried them. I had a brief stint working at CVS when I was around 16 or so so it could have been even as far back as that when I originally tried them.
Almay recently launched four new pad eye makeup removers and two new liquid eye makeup removers. I saw the display, quickly shook my head, and walked away from it. Those pads are evil I told myself, you’re still recovering from the last time you used them, remember what an emotional wreck you were after using them that first time? Needless to say curiosity killed the cat but this cat was curious none the less….so I decided to repurchase the Almay Longwear & Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Pads. I mean there was Kate Hudson right on display, smiling at me reassuringly. This must mean they somehow reformulated these pads! No oil, no trippy cloudy vision that makes me want to play I am the Walrus as I stumble from my bathroom to my bedroom….goo goo g’joob indeed.
How are they?
The newest Revlon Lip Butters I recently featured on Musings of a Muse found in the Gucci Westman Summer 2013 Collection are now permanent shades and available at Ulta.com.
If you’ve had a difficult time tracking these down now is a great time to get them as they are buy 2, get 1 free at Ulta.com and Free Shipping on orders of $50 or more.
I think part of the irony of Almay Smart Shade CC Cream is the fact that the Almay Smart Shade Foundation is more of a CC Cream than this is.
At the moment CC Creams are pretty popular in Korea and we’re seeing some of that in the Western market. Most of these CC Creams in Asia are white, self adjusting formulas with lightweight textures. Remind you of anything? Almay’s Smart Shade Foundation is actually white and self adjusting….
I find it funny that their CC Cream actually doesn’t go the self adjusting root. It’s unusual that their original, old formulated foundation is more a CC Cream than a new product they just launched.
Good news Maybelline Color Whisper Lipstick fans! Nude Shimmer, Ravishing Pink, I Crave Coral and Sienna Sands are four new, limited edition Summer 2013 shades of Color Whisper Lipstick available at drugstores now (if you can find them GRRrrrRrrr).
Maybelline Color Whisper Lipstick is possibly my favorite drugstore lippie at the moment so I was excited to see these new shades pop up.
Take a look!
On a budget? On a makeup ban? You can surely afford E.L.F. Essential Lip Balm Tint for a mere $2 yes?
Perfect cheap thrill for Summer!
