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?

Votre Vu Duette Luxe Lip Balm and Hand Creme Review

Marked at a whopping $39, I could swear to it that Votre Vu Duette Luxe Lip Balm and Hand Creme is thee most expensive hand cream my hands have ever seen! I actually spend $18 on Lush Smitten and dude, even that’s expensive to me. I guess I’m of the mentality that any hand cream will do and I’d rather dish out alot on skincare for my face rather than my hands…..

Votre Vu Duette Luxe Lip Balm and Hand Creme could change my mind though.

Mally Perfect Prep Eye Cooling Gel System Review

You know it’s Summer when The Guild starts pimpin’ their new Season. Yay! Anyone see the auto-tuned mad recap of Season 3?

Fawkes was my fav character evers! Hey, if you’re as old as me you totally appreciated Wil Wheaton, fellow geek in arms, appearing on The Guild. I’ve had a crush on Wil Wheaton since I was nine. I mean he was all the rage when I was growing up…we didn’t have soggy milk and bread Justin Bieber types, we had geeks like Wil Wheaton yo!

Sorry totally had to get my geek on there for a sec…

Anyway, back to being a grown up. A grown up with wrinkles.

Damn, life is so unfair.

A few months ago I ordered Mally Perfect Prep Eye Cooling Gel System…remember? I was in wait list hell for a while and I thought for sure it would never come but by some wonderful chance I got it a few weeks later, better late than not at all right?
