I hope you enjoyed the Drugstore Cosmetic Spring 2011 Collection round up today. I had a fun time wandering around and snapping pics even if I did make myself late for a prior appointment, oops!
I’ve reviewed some of these items already and have more reviews upcoming shortly. I imagine most of these releases are meant for Spring 2011 so if you haven’t yet seen them at your local drugstore just have a little patience and I’m sure they’ll arrive soon.
Good Luck and feel free to e-mail me or comment about new collections you’ve spotted! Would love to hear all about it.
Find the complete round up list below!
Here’s the display for the new limited edition Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Glam Collection. I reviewed the Glam Collection Shimmer Strips Gel Eyeliner recently and wasn’t too impressed with it however I’m somewhat tempted to try out the mascara which is also part of this collection.
I was looking for the Mineral Glow Pearls Blush display but it appears they sold out of it. No wonder as that was really a great product and I hope to see it as a permanent part of the collection!
Anyone try yet?

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:
- Light 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?
Can’t wait for February? Check out the new Physicians Formula Mineral Glow Pearls Blushes to tide you over!
Physicians Formula has a new Glam Collection Shimmer Strips Gel Eyeliner available for the Holidays. The collection features three new strips of Shimmer Eyeliner and three new mascaras. They break these up into eye color groups as in “select this color to flatter blue eyes”, “select this color to flatter brown eyes” and so on and so forth. I’m personally not keen on anyone telling me what flatters my eyes most as I’m of the mentality that anyone can wear any shade of color they choose. Granted some shades simply don’t work for me but most are a-ok and I don’t limit what I wear because I have brown eyes…..Just because I have brown eyes doesn’t mean I have to stick to wearing golds, browns, and black because Physicians Formula told me so.
Get my rant?
Aside from that the idea behind the product is interesting since it gives you not one, not two, but three gel eyeliners in stackable jars.
Has anyone tried the Physicians Formula Mineral Glow Pearls? I’ve stayed away from them for a while now because I feared they’d apply to frosty. I can’t dig the frost.
Recently, I came across the new Physicians Formula Mineral Glow Pearls Blush and was pretty skeptical since they looked pretty frosty too. The original Glow Pearls were a highlighter type of powder where as this version is a blusher. Looking at them I was absolutely gasping for breath because pretty is an understatement. They are really pretty pieces of makeup that can get a beauty junkies panties in a twist. However, my logical side whispered in my ear about how they would probably apply frosty so I sat at the display for a quarter of an hour debating if I needed them or not. After a few more minutes went by I decided I’d just try one color and after ten more minutes went buy I walked out of the store with both colors they had.
Did I like them?
Did they apply frosty?
I’ll tell you next week!
Ha, only kidding!
