If you hit up your drugstore for Spring makeup you’ll have some rather refreshing options in the foundation department. Both Almay and Revlon have new hydrating mineral foundation available. My recent test out with Almay Wake Up Hydrating Makeup ended rather badly but I still wanted to test our the Revlon ColorStay Aqua Mineral Makeup as well out of curiosity.
The idea behind the powders is that they give a burst of cool, refreshing finish. These are ideal placements for Spring considering your face is probably dry and suffering from the Winter blues and something cool, refreshing, and hydrating as a base would be a fab little pick. Agreed?
Sadly, Almay’s version proceeded to oxidize right on contact and offered very little in the way of coverage. Let’s check out Revlon and see if they have a better product on their hands!
Ohh who here has come across the Revlon Heavenly Metal Collection? Likey so much dude! They have three shades of Revlon Molten Metal Eyeshadow Palettes. These palettes feature a duo of baked shadows, seriously, has Revlon ever done baked shadows before? Love! I have such a weakness for baked eyeshadows.
I picked up the Silver/Gold duo and I was kinda left wishing they had better shades available like some sort of bronze, brown combo? But sadly, no dice.
However, the Silver/Gold does the trick.
Let’s check it!
Revlon has brand new Luxurious Color Smoky Crayons available for Spring 2011. These pencils mimic the idea of MAC Greasepaint or MAC Shadesticks. It’s basically a chubby pencil which you can use to fill your lid and blend out for a smoked look. If you already own Greasepaints and Shadesticks in various shades you probably won’t absolutely need the Revlon Smoky Crayon however it is a nice budget option to have available!
Let’s have a peek!
Plenty of new goodies are popping up at the drugstore for the Spring season! Anyone run into anything good? I need to hit up the drugstore this week for a peek but if you missed it here’s the round up post of some of what I’ve seen and I’ve also done a slideshow of other new items I’ve seen (if you’re reading via e-mail or RSS please visit my site to view the slideshow embedded in this post).
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.
