Prestige Cosmestic Color Treat Anti-Aging Lipstick Review and Swatches

Call me no nonsense but I honestly don’t see the point of anti-aging cosmetics. Granted, I am obsessed with anti-aging skincare but extending it to my cosmetics seems pointless.

Prestige Cosmestic Color Treat Anti-Aging Lipstick contains some sort of anti-aging technology the point of which is lost on me. Can’t we just have a cool lipstick sans bells and whistles please?

Yeah, I guess I’m kinda no nonsense when it comes to lipstick.

Beauty on a Budget Spotlight: New Makeup Available At The Drugstore

If you’ve been reading Musings for a while, I’m sure you recall the days that I didn’t review drugstore brands (US ones anyway). Things have changed considerably in the last year or so and I’ve embraced alot of US drugstore brands as I wanted to cover all aspects of beauty not just high end but also lower.

This past Spring (and some of Summer if you consider it Summer already) has been an incredible time for drugstore releases. Makeup quality has changed in the past few months as have the releases in store which had made going to my local drugstore a rather fun experience rather than a chore. Granted, not ever release is a good one but hunting down new products and finding gems in the rough so to speak is always great fun.

Do take a look at the slide show below for some of the latest and greatest releases that are available now at your local drugstores. Some are well worth checking out!

If you’re reading via RSS please visit my blog to view the slide show.

Have you hauled any of these items or collections for yourself?

Maybelline Salsa Sun Collection Review: Maybelline Salsa Sun Lipgloss Review

The limited edition Maybelline Salsa Sun Collection should be guest starring at your local drugstores. Keep in mine their are two separate displays for this release one contains the Maybelline Salsa Sun Color Collection and one contains the Maybelline Salsa Sun Lipgloss Collection. All of the pieces in both collections are limited edition so if you find that you’re lemming anything after this review, I’d highly suggest heading out to snag it because the few times I’ve seen the collection it has been very picked over with little to nothing left. Heck I had to visit two separate drugstores just to get some of the color and some of the glosses.

Jump ahead to hear about the Maybelline Salsa Sun Lipglosses!
