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!

Have you hauled any of these items or collections for yourself?
One my favorite ways to wear bronzer is combining with blush. I always find the effects of cocktailing blush and bronzer makes the bronzer experience all the more easier and wearable.
Physicians Formula Organic Wear 2-in-1 Bronzer & Blush combines one part bronzer with one part blush for an easy bronzing experience in one palette.
What did I think?
Forget about Sex in the City, how about a little Shimmer in the City?
Physicians Formula is hosting a city-wide (New York City that is bronzing bonanza on Thursday, May 27th.
Time to kick off Summer and begin the celebration as Physicians Formula hits the streets of Manhattan with freebies, coupons, and other goodies throughout the day!
The brand will be giving on the spot bronzing tips and application from the Shimmer in the City Team and special special Physicians Formula Duane Reade offers with chances to win fabulous prizes!
The teams will be stationed throughout the day in the following around the following locations in Manhattan:
- 8 am–10 am @ Penn Station
- 11 am–1:30 pm @ Times Square
- 2:30–3:30 pm @ Union Square

If you aren’t in New York no worries you can join in the fun and see what’s happening by tweeting with Physicians Formula @PFCosmetics and on their Facebook where you can have a chance to win some exclusive prizes and goodies by using the tag #ShimmerintheCity.
Can’t make the events but I’m so tweetin’ PF! Because I so NEED more shimmer in my life!
I dunno where my mentality stems from but I really hate dishing out a ton of cash for a tinted moisturizer.
So check it.
My logic is that you should pay a ton of money for a good foundation right? You wanna look flawless, you want something long wearing, etc…but really a tinted moisturizer is half the product of a foundation right? So why should I pay more?
That’s why I think you NEED Physicians Formula Healthy Wear SPF 50 Tinted Moisturizer.
So, I totally have a thing for mega size kabuki brushes even though I don’t technically embrace the world of bronzer. I mean when you think of a massive kabuki you likely associate it with bronzing powder right?
Yea well, the Muse’s mentality differs on occasion.
I recently purchased the Physicians Formula Bamboo Wear Brush because I was all about, “OMG what a fabulously big old brush to dust on powder for Summer!” and than I was like, “ZOMG how fab for blush?” Don’t worry the second though was quickly erased from my head considering how heavy handed I am with blush already…seriously? Big old kabuki+heavy hand=OOOOOO no she didn’t use that much blush!
I wanted the Physcians Formula Bamboo Wear Bambuki Brush ANYWAY! So I purchased it for a mere $4 bucks.
