It’s been over a month since I did my last “spotted” post, and there are plenty of cool new collections out at the drugstore. I have a few of them to show you today, including Milani, Maybelline, CoverGirl+Olay, Sally Hansen, and Wet n Wild. Some are limited edition, some are permanent, but all of the products are pretty interesting. So, let’s get started.
First up, we have the new Sally Hansen Miracle Gel nail polish. SH claims that this 2 step method (polish and top coat) creates a real gel manicure, but without the lamp. No curing process needed, and it is supposed to remove with normal nail polish remover. Too good to be true, or true miracle indeed? I’m not sure yet, but I will let you know. There are 45 shades in the collection, and though this display didn’t have all of them, it did have a 2-pack with a polish and the top coat. I am not loving the nearly $10 price tag per polish, but for gel lovers, this may be a great option.
I finally spotted the new Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadow. I am not sure what gel powder means, so here is what Milani has to say: “Rich, vibrant color that glides on in a single stroke, delivering a stunning multi-dimensional effect. What makes it a gel powder? Well, the formula starts as a gel and then is transformed by a special process into a stunning powder eyeshadow with pure color and power wear. The unique process allows you to blend this incredibly innovative, weightless formula easily with your fingertips to light up your eyes. Even more to entice: It can used wet or dry, resists creasing, and comes in satin matte, shimmer and iridescent metallic finishes. You just have to try this gel powder. It’s that different.” There are 30 shades in this new permanent collection.
Next up is the Limited Edition Maybelline Fashion Rocks Live Fall 2014 collection. This collection celebrates Fashion Rocks which is an annual international charity fundraiser event that debuts on CBS on September 9th. The Maybelline Fashion Rocks Collection is broken into four looks which include Indie Princess, Rock Goddess, Urban Attitude, and Sultry Siren. The collection features repromoted shades for eyes and lips, but the Color Show nail polishes are new LE shades.
CoverGirl+Olay The De-Puffer Eye Concealer has a cooling metal tip in the squeeze tube to massage away the look of puffiness and dark circles. With Olay Rejuvenating serum and cucumber extract, this could be a big hit for those with aging eyes. I have more issues with fine lines than with puffiness or dark circles, so I may pass. It does look promising, though. If any of you have tried it, let me know what you think.
Lastly, we have Wet n Wild Fall 2014 Limited Edition Megalast Matte Nail Colors. Wet n Wild has released three limited edition collections for Fall 2014. There is a collection of limited edition matte lipsticks, as well as a collection of limited edition Coloricon 5-Pan Eyeshadow Palettes that my drugstore did not have. But, they did have this display of Megalast Matte Nail Colors. There are no repromotes in this display, and all six shades look fantastic for Fall. That gorgeous navy blue is calling to me, especially at only $1.99, but I am trying to stick to my no-buy. Still, these are pretty nice.
That’s it for this round. I can’t wait to see what else pops up as we get more into Fall. I feel like the drugstores around me get collections very late compared to other places. But hopefully I can find the new limited edition collections early enough to show you so that you can get your hands on them if you want them. More Fall displays should be on their way, as well as 2014 Halloween displays. After that, my favorite time of year brings all of the Holiday collections. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled when you are out and about because there will be a lot to see. :)
