Drugstore Makeup Brands
Maybelline Volum’ Express has extended their line to include the new Mega Plush formula for Summer 2012. Maybelline Volum’ Express The Mega Plush Mascara has a flexible brush and a gel-mousse formula that supposedly adds super volume to lashes.
I liked the idea of a flexible brush as you get that added wriggle action in for plucking lashes up and out but after using it I’m thinking I’d have preferred to do without as I feel like I loss a little control over application.
Let’s take a look and see what I loved and didn’t love about the new Maybelline The Mega Plush Mascara.
L’Oreal is set to launch Colour Riche Caresse Sticks shortly here in the US. These hit the UK market with raving success a few short months ago and I was delighted that we’d be seeing them so early. Typically anything released in Britain gets to our side of the pond within a season or two but lately product launches are very quick to come on over and for that I’m extra grateful.
Although L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Sticks are rumored to arrive here in June I already have a shade that I picked up online.
I blame Revlon Lip Butters for the hype stirring up for the launch of Caresse Sticks. I think a ton of people thought the Revlon Lip Butters were a smashing success, myself included, so anything in the realms of this type of product get makeup lovers quite excited.
Here’s a brief review of L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Sticks but keep in mind that I’ll be doing a follow up review when they officially launch here in the US as I’d like to try a few more shades before having my final word on these.
Revlon has a special display that I noticed at the
Evil Empire Walmart recently of Super Lustrous Lipstick.
I’m not sure if the display will pop up elsewhere but I must say I really liked that they took a display and stuck a buncha old shades in it simply because I’ve never really paid much attention to the lipstick before and I liked that they highlighted best selling colors.
I own one or two Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks already but like Maybelline Color Sensational I feel like it’s an overrated lipstick with only one redeeming factor, the gorgeous shade selection.
Peach Me happened to be in that special display unit and even though I’m not terribly into the formula I really liked the shade.
L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique BB Cream
launched a few short months ago in the UK. I purchased mine from England within weeks because I was so terribly curious about a drugstore BB Cream. Since Garnier was one of the only drugstore BB Creams within the US at the time of this release I was terribly curious how brands like Maybelline
, L’Oreal, etc….would do with the formula.
Again, we face a rather odd conundrum with a BB Cream formula that, well, isn’t really a BB Cream. With Nude Magique, L’Oreal has simply created something completely outside of the realms of a traditional BB Cream. It’s not even CLOSE to anything you’d find in a BB Cream from Korea and in some cases it’s actually entertaining they think it’s ok to call it one.
Let’s take a look at L’Oreal Nude Magique BB Cream.
