It was a slow Fall for Drugstore makeup but I can’t say the same for Spring 2017. There are a lot of brand new makeup, beauty, and skincare picks at the drugstore this month and many are very good but with the good there’s always the bad too.
Here’s a list of some of the latest drugstore makeup hits and misses for Spring 2017.
See if you agree with them!
Milani Retouch + Base Light-Lifting Concealer
Milani’s newest concealer is delightfully creamy and quite hydrating but sadly, it seems to sheer away during the blend process. A tad more pigment would make this inexpensive concealer a hit with me! MISS it!
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint
Got good skin already? Neutrogena’s new sheer hydrating tint is for you. This will make you already great skin look better by evening your skin tone, brightening, and leaving you with flawless, gorgeous skin! Definitely a HIT!
Beauty 360 Gentle Eye Makeup Remover
CVS’s Beauty 360 Gentle Eye Makeup Remover is now available in a whooping 11 oz size. This compelled me to purchase it because not only do I hate spending big bucks on eye makeup remover but I also hate having to replace it so often. Why the 4 oz sizes? It’s something we use daily why isn’t everyone jumping on board to create a larger size of eye makeup remover? Needless to say not only was I pleased with the price and formula of Beauty 360 Gentle Eye Makeup Remover but the 11 oz size made it truly a HIT with me!
Rimmel Magnif’Eyes Eyeshadow Contouring Palette
I think we can all agree that we likely have plenty of nude eyeshadow palettes are this point. But hey, don’t you find yourself still purchasing more of them? Rimmel’s new palettes have 12 gorgeous shades inside but sadly, the formula failed to wow me which made this one a MISS!
Maybelline Inti-Matte Nudes Lipstick
Inti-Matte Lipstick is currently taking the Internet by storm because lord knows we all love a good nude lipstick not to mention a cheap one. Considering Maybelline’s fairly good track record with their Color Sensational Lipstick Collection I felt like I’d be mighty pleased with the Inti-Matte Nudes but sadly, this formula applied patchy, fell into my natural lip lines, and ended up aging my lips. Thanks but no thanks! This was a MISS!
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Concealer
Neutrogena’s new concealer is creamy, dreamy, easy to blend, and easy to apply. Lord knows we need more concealers like this at the drugstore. An instant HIT!
Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Cushion Correct + Primer Duo
Need to brighten up? Need to correct redness or darkness? Physicians Formula got you covered, literally, with their new cushion compact that contains not one shade of corrector but two! I like this unique duo a lot and thought it was worth a try! HIT!
Maybelline Baby Lips Color Balm Crayon
I admit Maybelline Baby Lips Color Balm Crayon weren’t on my hit list. I felt for sure they’d be the average, sheer Baby Lips we all know and are somehow addicted to collecting. Turns out Maybelline had something else in store for these. These are SUPER pigmented with a lovely lightweight texture! Not to mention they are cheap as chips! Loves ’em! Total HIT!
Burt’s Bees Flavor Crystals Lip Balm
Burt’s Bee’s new Crystal Lip Balm sounds interesting enough! A burst of fruity flavor in every application. Turns out these are pretty basic a little heavy for a lip balm. MISS ’em!
L’Oreal Micellar Cleansing Water
Love Garnier’s Cleansing Water? Stick with it because L’Oreal’s new Micellar formula doesn’t bring anything awesome to the table. This one failed to wow me and left behind makeup after a cleansing. I’d call it a MISS.
Hard Candy Glamoflauge Mix‑in Pigment Makeup Drops
Looking for lightweight, flawless coverage? Hard Candy’s new Mix-in Pigment Drops are all that! You can mix these in with your fav moisturizer or primer but if I’m honest, a little drop of two blended on my face is all I need to look fresh and amazing. No mixing required! Love the price, love the finish, love these! HIT!
