Drugstore Makeup Brands

Neutrogena Ulta Sheer Liquid Daily Sun Protection SPF 55 Review

This Summer felt like the Summer of the SPF. SPF has evolved a fair bit this year and I’m seeing more and more options that offer a higher SPF factor of 50 and up. Such products are the norm in the Asian market however here in the US we tend to stick to the 30 range.

Another interesting evolution is drugstore makeup brands offering SPF options. Asia is flooded with a variety of SPF products and brands in particular offer not only color cosmetic options but also an SPF product or several. It’s very rare that there isn’t some SPF option available from most brands in Asia.

Versus here in the US, where we don’t normally see our favorite brands such as say Maybelline or Revlon offering a product available exclusively for sun protection.

Neutrogena changes all that with it’s new Ulta Sheer Liquid Daily Sun Protection. Does this mean we’ll see more drugstore brands offering SPF products all their own?

Let’s hope so!

Yes to Blueberries Age Refresh Brightening Eye Roller

When it comes to eye rollers you can sell me snow in the Summer, I buy into them baby.

I can’t tell you how many useless eye rollers I have hanging out in the makeup graveyard. Ones that promise to brighten, ones that promise to rid me of wrinkles, ones that concealer, ones that promise to depuff…

Most don’t live up to all their promises though but I keep buying ’em anyway!

Next on my list of eye rollers would be the new Yes to Blueberries Age Refresh Brightening Eye Roller….will it truly be the one that actually works!?
