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?

Philosophy Salt Water Taffy Lime Taffy Review

Philosophy Lime Taffy Shower Gel

In the early stages of Philosophy’s Shower Gel life, there wasn’t alot of scents to choose from and the ones they did have weren’t nearly as fantastic as the current releases. Indeed, you’ve heard this all before from me but I can’t begin to tell you how Philosophy has evolved as some of their earlier releases weren’t anything like what we experience from them in the realms of shower gel today.

I’m mentioning all this because most recent release of Philosophy Salt Water Taffy Shower Gels has been a bit of a bust for me and I feel like I’m doing a rewind back to Philosophy’s past with some of these as they aren’t up to my current standards of what their shower gel should smell like!

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.
