Drugstore Makeup Brands
I don’t wear a ton of powder foundations or setting powders but when I do I want something lightweight, easy on my dry skin, and inexpensive. Long gone are the days of buying expensive powders because I simply cannot justify indulging in a higher end powder when I know I won’t be using it. I have dry skin and powders aren’t exactly the most friendliness products in the world for such a skin type.
Why pay more when I can pay less?
Milani Multitasker Face Powder is the perfect treat for dry skin and it won’t break the bank!
Summer is hitting the drugstore kids.
One of the first Summer Collections I’ve seen pop up is the new Maybelline Summer Glow Collection for Summer 2012 that features new Maybelline Dream Bouncy Bronzers.
Take a peek!
The Maybelline Pure BB Mineral Collection is kinda old news in Japan. Its never been released in the US but it did make it’s way across much of Asia upon release.
It happens to be one of those products that throws around “BB” in the title to garner attention but really that’s not a reference to the formula being a BB Cream. I notice the words BB Cream and BB seem to float around a lot when it comes to foundation and base products.
Japan typically releases new products prior to us with different names. For example, our new Bouncy Dream Blushes are called Jello Glow in Japan. I’m mentioning this because I was curious if we might see this BB Mousse pop up here in the US at some point. We sorta have in the form of Maybelline’s new foaming foundation but…packaging is different as well as formula slightly.
I find Maybelline products exceed quality in terms of pigmentation and formula in Japan versus much of the catalog products we have here in the US market so I expected Pure BB Mineral BB Mousse to be something I rejoiced in but sadly it didn’t quite happen that way.
Beauty is repetitive. Trends come, they go, and they come back just as quickly. Packaging, unique ideas and concepts, colors, etc…all have a way of being repeated over and over again in new and sometimes exciting ways. If you’re a beauty junkie it does become a chore to weed through a sea of products and find unique, new, and exciting releases as many products are simply do overs of something you already own or tried in the past.
Hard Candy Shiny When Wet Waterproof Mascara takes an idea that’s been done before but, well, they add their own little spin on it that made me smile.
Ok, Urban Decay De-Slick in a Tube, absolutely essential for oily skin. Such a life saver for Summer wearin’ and tearin’ as well.
I was thinking the new NYX Shine Killer might prove a dupe but…mmm formula is different but still for mattifying none the less.
Take a look!
