Almay Wake Up Hydrating Makeup Review, Swatches, Photos

It looks like you’ll see a new wave of hydrating foundation powders in the makeup come Spring (or now if you check around), so far I’ve seen two. Both Revlon and Almay have two new hydrating powder foundations available which mimic MAC Dr. Facilier Magically Cool Liquid Powder.

It’s been a while since this type of powder has made the drugstore rounds. I can only remember one instance of it actually and perhaps you remember it too, it was from Physicians Formula and must be at least 10 to 15 years back when they had a pink powder that had a hydrating, cool, water-like effect. A few high end types such as Awake have had such powders as well.

You can commonly find these from Asian brands however they haven’t quite taken off in the US and if the formulas are anything to go by now, may never take off. But we’ll see….

Almay Wake Up Hydrating Makeup is my focus today and later in the week I’ll introduce you to Revlon’s new Photo Ready Hydrating Makeup.

Let’s have a look and feel free to share your thoughts and experiences with hydrating makeups you’ve come across.

Wet n Wild Color Icon Blusher Review, Swatches, Photos

I used to stick to the high end road on Musings for a very long time but many of you expressed more budget friendly posts and thus my adventures in drugstore land began. I’m lucky the walls don’t crumble down around me when I walk into a drugstore because lord knows I avoid the makeup aisles at the local shops like the plague.

But lately….

Things have improved and brands are definitely competing with their more higher end sisters. So Beauty and a Budget is definitely a regular deal around these parts and I’m ever so happy to bring you a great deal on makeup that has high quality to back it up!

One such item, Wet n Wild Color Icon Blusher. Can you say wicked good?

Mally Beauty Water Resistant Cancellation Conditioning Concealer Review, Swatches, Photos

Mally has a new Water Resistant Concealer with SPF25 which is gathering some great reviews on QVC. I purchased it on a whim since I own and adore her Concealer Cancellation system and the appeal of a water resistant concealer with such a high SPF was too good not to indulge in.

Let’s have a look!
