I told you a little about Almay Smart Shade Mousse Makeup yesterday. This is a new foundation that Almay has released in four shade selection that has a self adjusting formula which becomes your “perfect” shade after application.
“Mousse” makeup had me thinking whipped, creamy, and more along the lines of Revlon’s Colorstay Whipped Foundation released several months ago but actually this formula seems a little different.
Yes, I said Spring 2013. Gasp! Makeup brands are already introducing Spring 2013 Collections both on counter and in drugstores. This year, Urban Decay released the Naked Basics Palettes for Spring 2013 before anyone else got the chance to say boo!
I suspect you’ll hear the word about Too Faced Spring 2013 might soon as well! Last year, they introduced it on December 20th or so. And already news of Maybelline’s Spring 2013 Collection has hit the Twitter airwaves (reviews on it coming soon!).
It might seem too early but fact is brands are introducing their Spring Collections earlier and earlier each year. Heck, I used to think January was too early for news of Spring Makeup Collections but now we hear it before Christmas even arrives.
So which collections are you most excited about?
New Spring offerings from the drugstore?
Some high end Spring goodies from fav brands like Dior or perhaps Guerlain?
Something from MAC? More news from Urban Decay Spring 2013? or Too Faced?
As for me..I guess I’m excited about it all! I’m particularly hyped to see how the drugstores evolve more and more as the years past. There offerings continue to grow and get better with each new seasonal release!
What’s your take?
P.S. I hope you all had a wonderful Monday. It’s going on 3:30 pm here and I’m about ready to call it. I’m tired! It’s been a very long day with tons of stuff going on at once. Phew! It’s a shame that all I want to do is go home, grab a bite, and watch some TV before heading to bed early because the weather is perfect today, very sunny and warm with a little cool breeze!
Revlon has a new Nearly Naked Makeup & Pressed Powder Collection launching for Spring 2013. I ran across the display at Harmons. This includes new Nearly Naked Pressed Powder and Nearly Naked Foundation in a wide array of shades.
Take a look!
Almay Smart Shade Perfectly Mousse Makeup and Almay Smart Shade Blush are two new offerings at the drugstore for Spring 2013. I ran across these are Harmons recently and couldn’t resist picking up the three blushes and the foundation.
I seem to be in the sad minority who doesn’t like Revlon’s Colorstay Whipped Foundation so I’m a little on the fence about Almay’s version!
Take a look!
Rimmel has a new BB Cream that launched earlier this Fall in the UK that’s available in Light and Medium shades.
Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation BB Cream is a 9 in 1 formula that primes, mattifies, moisturizers, minimizes the appearance of pores, conceals blemishes, and protects with an SPF 25.
It looks like the newer drugstore BB Creams are stepping up their SPF as Revlon’s new BB Cream has an SPF 30 and now this with an SPF 25. Excellent! Hopefully they turn out more pigmented than the more recent releases.
This will prob launch shortly here in the US but it is already available on ASOS.com for around $13.
I’ll be sure to update as it becomes available in our market!
