Almay Smart Shade Powder Blush Review & Swatches

Almay Smart Shade Powder Blush1

Almay Smart Shade Powder Blush is available in three shades selections and recently launched in drugstores as part of Almay’s Spring 2013 Collection.

The blushes are $8.69 each at Harmons but I suspect you may run into a higher price tag should you purchase at CVS, Walgreens, etc….

Do yourself a favor, wait for these to be on sale before indulging, if you even bother indulging after this review.


Wet n Wild Coverall Cream Foundation Spring 2013

Wet n Wild Coverall Cream Foundation

Is it a BB Cream? A CC Cream? Or just a foundation? Wet n Wild Coverall Cream Foundation launches for Spring 2013 and until that time we’ll have to wait and see if it’s just an old, ordinary base or something way better!

Maybelline the Rocket Volum’ Express Mascara Review

Maybelline the Rocket Volum Express Mascara

Maybelline Volum’ Express the Rocket Mascara ($7.79) is launching for Spring 2013 in drugstores shortly. This is a volumizing mascara with a clump-free formula that promises to create full, fatter lashes as much as 8 x the normal size.

The Rocket has a gellant formula which contains micronized pigments and thickening agents to coat lashes and create a fuller look. It’ll be available in three wash off shades and two waterproof ones.

Let’s take a look!


Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Airbrushing Blush for Spring 2013

Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Airbrushing Blush

Physicians Formula extends its Mineral Wear Collection for Spring 2013 with a new Airbrushing Blush and Airbrushing Bronzer. Can I tell you my story of the day…I recently purchased both Airbrushing Blushes and it cost me over $20.

Falls over.

I really like Physicians Formula Blush in general but couldn’t believe it was over $20 bucks to purchase two of them at the drugstore. I’m kinda the frugal gourmet when it comes to drugstore makeup so I always find it a little shocking when I spend that much for products.
