Spring Collections 2013
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!
I had to share the news of Revlon Photoready BB Cream with you! Revlon has a BB Cream now who would have guessed? I ran across Revlon Photoready BB Cream this early this morning at Bed, Bath, and Beyond and as I’m sitting here waiting for my friend in the car I thought I’d blog the good word.
Take a look!
I picked up a few shades of the new Almay Intense I-Color Liquid + Color Primers which are part of Almay Intense I-Color Bold Nudes Collection for Spring 2013. These are a cream shadow with a built in primer that you can wear alone or under a powder shadow as a primer and base.
Take a look!
Almay Intense I-Color Bold Nudes is a new collection featuring the new Almay Intense I-Color Liquid Shadow + Color Primer. Intense I-Color Liquid Shadow + Color Primer appear to be a dupe of Covergirl’s Intense Shadowblast Eyeshadow as they are a cream shadow with a built in primer, same as Covergirl’s version.
There are also new Intense I-Color Defining Liners in this collection with are pencil eyeliners with a soft sparkly finish. And finally new Intense I-Color Bold Nudes Palettes in four new shades.
I ran across this display at Harmons a few days ago and picked up some of the Almay Intense I-Color Liquid Shadow + Color Primers. There are four shades total of these.
Laura Geller Beauty Off the Vine Collection is a new QVC Today’s Special Value Set that is launching December 28th. It’s actually already available for QVC Insiders (or you might be able to order even if you aren’t one).
The set includes five full size products and is available as a one time shipment or an auto delivery. Considering I recently indulged in the Laura Geller Fresh Brewed Beauty Collection I feel like perhaps I should skip on the Beauty Off the Vine Collection but I admit I’m tempted.
Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Liquid Metal Eyeliner Trio Universal Looks Collection will be launching shortly in drugstores for Spring 2013.
Physicians Formula has done these trios to death in a gel, pencil, and kohl variations but those who love a liquid eyeliner formula will be quite excited about this launch.
You might be lucky enough to run across the new Physicians Formula Youthful Wear Cosmeceutical Youth-Boosting Dark Circle Corrector + Concealer launching for Spring 2013 at your local drugstore.
Last year Physicians Formula launched their Spring 2012 offerings fairly early and I remember locating them at CVS and a few other locations within the second week of December.
They are extending their Youthful Wear Collection with a new Dark Circle Corrector + Concealer Duo it appears. I didn’t particularly like the Youthful Wear Cosmeceutical Youth-Boosting Concealer so I’m unsure how I feel about this new variation but I’ll def indulge. I don’t call myself a beauty junkie for nothing ;-D
Urban Decay Naked Basics Eyeshadow Palette launches this week. Excited? The Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette ($27) is a new take on the legendary Naked and Naked 2 Eyeshaodow Palettes.
This smaller, more portable palette contains six full size eyeshadows all of them matte in finish accept for one. I’m positive all the matte lovers out there are squealing in joy because let’s face it Naked and Naked 2 are more about the shimmer than the matte.
The Naked Basics Palette launches in exactly three days, will you be indulging?
Take a look!
Here’s a little treat, the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palettes launching November 29th at UrbanDecay.com. The Naked Basics Palette is for the matte lovers out there. Six shades of neutral matte eye color to use as bases to pair with bolder shades, on their own, or even in conjunction with the Naked and Naked 2 Palettes to creating outstanding, basic eye look!
Matte was never this cool!
As you know from my recent post Physicians Formula released a new Organic Wear Fake Out Mascara for Spring 2013. This promises a false lash-like effect with added volume, length, and curl.
Along with all the bells and whistles you could possibly want from a mascara they also give it a 24 hour wear formula. This is also 100% natural origin and 70% organic with a formula free of harsh chemicals, parabens, etc…
Is it great?
