Drugstore Makeup Brands

Wet n Wild Color Icon Blusher Review, Swatches, Photos

Wet n Wild Color Icon Blusher 1

I used to stick to the high end road on Musings for a very long time but many of you expressed more budget friendly posts and thus my adventures in drugstore land began. I’m lucky the walls don’t crumble down around me when I walk into a drugstore because lord knows I avoid the makeup aisles at the local shops like the plague.

But lately….

Things have improved and brands are definitely competing with their more higher end sisters. So Beauty and a Budget is definitely a regular deal around these parts and I’m ever so happy to bring you a great deal on makeup that has high quality to back it up!

One such item, Wet n Wild Color Icon Blusher. Can you say wicked good?

It’s also my way of saying thanks.

Last year we had a really great time with the giveaways and I can’t help but wish I had a truckle of gifts to give each and everyone!

You might be new around here so just a brief recap about my version of the 12 Days of Christmas.

Hard Candy Big Curls Dont Cry 4

Big girls don’t cry…they don’t cry-ya-ya….they don’t cry. Isn’t that cry-ya-ya the perfect high note for the shower? Not that I sing in the shower. No way, not me.

I do full Broadway style shows in my shower, yeah, well, you’re never seeing that. Admission 1 only.

Speaking of big girls that don’t cry, that happens to be the name of the new Hard Candy Mascara, well, not really, replace girls with curls.

Check it chicks!

Physicians Formula Happy Booster Blush

Physicians Formula Happy Booster Blush

Physicians Formula Happy Booster Blush launches in January-February, can’t come soon enough as far as I’m concerned. It’s called Happy Booster because it promises to lift your spirits. Just what I always wanted, a blush to make me happy! The formula has some sort of aromatherapy, color therapy, and texture therapy to stimulate your senses into a happy, joyous place. My happy place is inside a Sephora with a cart full of makeup, maybe Physicians Formula can whisk me away to that special spot.

Arctic rose extract mimics the effects of endorphins where as Euphoryl, rich in Omega-3, is a known anti-depressant. Plus a blend of violet floral notes are included to invigorate and refresh you into a great mood.

If that doesn’t work you can always simply stare at the cute heart shaped design and proceed to smile at how great this blush is. Seriously hearts? Loves it!

The compact with be available in four shades:

  • Translucent
  • Beige
  • Light Bronzer
  • Bronzer

Eva Chen recently tweeted an image of a few of the compacts which you can see here.

What do you think of a blush that promises to put you in a bright, happy mood?

Yay?

Nay?

Share it!

Can’t wait for February?   Check out the new Physicians Formula Mineral Glow Pearls Blushes to tide you over!
