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

new in Beauty 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!

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

Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm Review and Swatches

Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm 1

I rarely leave the house without lip stain in place. Most of my gloss photos always included some sort of stain underneath. Dunno, just one of those daily things I do, stain lips, apply gloss, and go!

I like stains for a variety of reasons but for the most part I like them because they give my gloss that little extra something to make it pop and transform ordinary into extraordinary.

A few seasons ago Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain popped onto the scene. Anyone remember them? Rollerball style applicator? They kinda reminded me of Lorac Cheek and Lip Stain at the time but way cheaper. Of course Revlon had meant for us to take advantage of these strictly as a lip stain but I was all about dabbing some on my cheeks for a bit of blusher. No rules against that right?

I actually still have some of these stains since I liked them so much and did double duty stocking up!

Now I’m telling you all this because Just Bitten has evolved into Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm Review. New packaging, new design, new everything….

Wanna hear about it?

Revlon PhotoReady Makeup Foundation Review

The cosmetic world keeps telling me I have to be HD and Photo ready, I’m gonna take a chance here and say that translates into they want me to have flawless skin because honestly I really don’t need to be HD ready now do I? I’m not going to be on the tube anytime soon so it’s doubtful I really need any of the fanfare and hype that surrounds HD makeup…or do I?

Revlon PhotoReady Makeup 1

Wait.

Picture it.

The Muse as the next Paris Hilton.

I think I heard the screeching of a record in the background. Yea, well, I guess my big dreams and hopes of being the next Paris aren’t happening in this lifetime.

But!

I shall worm my way through HD makeup and see how flawless I can be. You see I want to give my skin the potential of being the best it can be.

Revlon PhotoReady Makeup promises to deliver just that….

We shall see!

Check it after the jump!

WANT IT: Revlon Super Luxurious Lipstick


Here’s something to get excited about. Check it.

I was recently reading the latest issue of W magazine, for the interesting articles of course and not just to peep at Bruce Willis’s new wife’s boobs, I’d never do that.

Anyway, I was reading happily away and came across an ad for Revlon Super Luxurious Lipstick.

Click to hear a babble or two about boobs and lipstick.

The advertisement has what’s her name, wow her name escapes me right now, ummmmmm JESSICA ALBA! Phew, sorry brain fart. Right o, Jessica Alba was wearing the lipstick but that’s not what’s exciting. It was the shade. Whoa. Likey! She was wearing Revlon Super Luxurious Lipstick in Spicy Cinnamon and it screamed Fall to me. I got so excited I was willing to drop Emma Heming’s boobs so I could go out to the drugstore and see if they had some of this shade in stock, loves it! Not the boobs, the lipstick.


Anyone see this ad?

Anyone have the shade?

The Muse wants it in her life please.
