I haven’t done a “Spotted” post in ages. I guess I’m going to make up for it today because I have a ton of new displays to show you. I went to CVS, Walgreens, and Walmart this time. I have a lot to get through, so I’m just going to launch in.
CVS had a lot to offer in terms of foundation and BB Creams. I personally am not a fan of American drugstore BB Creams because I think that they are just glorified tinted moisturizers and not true BB Creams. But, I know that many of you do want to try them out so I snapped a couple pics.
First, though, a new collection from Neutrogena. The Neutrogena Shine Control Makeup collection includes primer, foundation, and powder. According to Neutrogena, “Our revolutionary line combines lightweight, breathable makeup with our exclusive rice protein complex. This amazing makeup continuously absorbs oil throughout the day, minimizes the look of pores and leaves a soft, non-shiny finish — all without over-drying skin.” I especially love that drugstore brands are now offering those little sample cards so you can try before you buy. The Revlon Whipped Creme Makeup display had samples and you can see in the upper right hand corner that this Neutrogena display does too. I hope all drugstore brands follow suit.
Next up, L’Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream. “Encapsulated pigments are infused in an ultra-light lotion with antioxidants vitamins C and E. You get four beautifying actions: primes to smooth skin’s texture; perfects to hide imperfections; hydrates for all-day moisture; corrects skin for a healthy-looking, even complexion. L’Oreal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream instantly transforms to your perfect shade for a flawless bare-skin finish.” I will be doing a full review of this soon, so keep an eye out.
CVS also had the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream displayed. Per Maybelline, “The 1-step wonder for a good skin day, everyday. Packed with 8 great skin benefits for instant skin perfection. Ideal for Normal Skin.” The BB Cream comes in five shades and those little bottles in front of the tubes are testers to you can try all the shades for the closest match to your skin.
Also from Maybelline is the Expertwear Luminous Lights collection. “Now eyes light up with shimmering luminosity. Our highest concentration of pearls. 4 luminous shades.” These shadow quads do certainly look luminescent, though all of them are very light shades. They seem a little ho-hum to me, but those who like lighter eye looks may really enjoy these.
At Walgreens I spotted the Sinful Colors Study in Style collection. Though a gorgeous collection, it’s made up mostly of repromotes, so you may already have many of these shades. The only entirely new shade is Leapfrog, which is that lovely murky green in the center. If you missed out on the ever-popular Winterberry, here is you chance to snatch it up.
Next in nails, we have the Wet n Wild Fergie Collection. This is the first collaboration with WnW’s global ambassador, Fergie, to hit shelves. There should be more to come in the future, and though I’m not sure if they are exclusive to Walgreens, they will definitely be hitting Walgreens first. This collection contains 25 shades.
The Wet n Wild Fergie Collection has a bunch of glitter shades, some super bright shades, some dark rocker-type shades, and a couple metallics. I have heard that there are some dupes to the Wet n Wild Spoiled collection.
Also at Wlagreens was this large display of new L’Oreal products. On the left is the L’Oreal True match Lumi Foundation. “True Match™ Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup combines 3 powerful ingredients that work to improve your complexion the more you wear them. 40% pure water for all-day hydration. Antioxidants and Vitamins C and E for improved clarity and skin tone. And Liquid Light Technology for an instant, luminous glow.” Though they say it is for all skin types, with a “luminous finish” oily skin ladies will want to avoid this foundation for sure. The center display contains L’Oreal Colour Caresse by Colour Riche lipstick. These lipsticks are supposed to be the lightweight glossy versions of the original Colour Riche. They are meant to be moisturizing, sheer, yet pigmented lip colors. On the right are the newly released shades of the L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows. I really like these shadows and am glad that they keep releasing more colors.
Finally, at Walmart, I spotted the Essie Mirror Metallics collection. There are five metallic shades in this collection including silver, gold, copper/rose gold, blue and purple. Metallics are known to be streaky and difficult to apply, but I have seen reviews saying that these Essie polishes apply better than most metallics.
Those are all of the displays that I spotted this weekend while out and about. I hope you saw something that interested you. I did pick up one of the new L’Oreal Infallible shades in Golden Emerald because I am a sucker for green eyeshadow. I am really interested in the Fergie collection from WnW, but I really need to stop buying nail polish. What about you, will you be hauling any of these products? Let me know in the comments below.
