Recent Sightings


I had the best anniversary.  We had a four-day weekend together, so we went exploring and had a great time.  We ate French food, we went to a local museum, I took a ton of pictures at the botanical garden.  It was awesome.  And though I wasn’t posting, I was still ever mindful of the blog, so I stopped at some drugstores to take pics of new displays to share with you.

L’Oreal 2012 Project Runway Collection

I finally spotted the new L’Oreal 2012 Project Runway display in my area.  It seems like it has been months since I told you about this collection.  Well, it’s finally here.  The collection is split up into four mini collections, or “personalities”: the Artsy Muse, the Enchanted Queen, the Seductive Temptress, and the Wise Mystic.  The collection includes lipstick, lip gloss, blush, nail polish, eyeshadow quads, and more.  I picked up a couple items, so I’ll share swatches with you soon.

New Maybelline Color Tattoos

The other display that I’ve been waiting to see is this one featuring the five new shades of Maybelline Color tattoos.  I saw these announced around the time the Fall Fashion week displays were announced, but I haven’t seen them in the store until now.  These new shades are bold and vibrant, including fuchsia, teal, purple, bright green, and electric blue.

Sinful Colors Bewitched Collection

A very cute display I saw at Walgreens is the Sinful colors Bewitched Collection.  This display contains both polishes and stripers.  There is a beautiful glitter polish in this collection called Pumpkin Spice that looks like a very close dupe for China Glaze Electrify that came out with the Hunger Games Collection.  So, if you missed Electrify, you may want Pumpkin Spice.

Rite-Aid Pumpkin Polishes 2012

The annual Rite-Aid  Blue Cross  pumpkin polishes are back again.  This display features mostly the Glow in the dark polishes, but I did see some glitter pumpkin polishes as well.  (The photo was too blurry to post, sorry.)

Pink Your Look at Walgreens

Of course, October isn’t just about Halloween.  I saw this Pink Your Look display at Walgreens.  $1 will be donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure through the Walgreens Way to Well Commitment for each Pink Your Look purchase of $25.  In addition, you can receive 5,000 points on the new Balance Rewards card for every $25 purchase on participating items/brands.

LE Baby Lips duos

I found these Limited Edition Maybelline Baby Lips duo sets at Walgreens.  I have not used Baby Lips yet, but I know that a lot of people really love them.  It was $8.49 for the set at my local Walgreens.

imPRESS Disney Villain Collection

The Disney Villains are having a real moment right now.  You all know about the e.l.f. Disney Villain Palettes, but I also stumbled across this display of imPRESS press-on manicures from Broadway.  It looks like there are two styles per Villain.

That’s all for now.  There were a lot if interesting products in the Project Runway Collection for L’Oreal.  I tried to be good, and only get a couple things, but I am very tempted to get more.  I am also kicking myself for not picking up SC Pumpkin Spice.  I may have to make another trip to the store.  I hope that something here caught your eye.  Happy shopping!  🙂


About beautyinbudgetblog

I am a self proclaimed eyeshadow junkie whose main hobbies include shopping, reading, singing, and mainlining caffeine while hanging out with my friends. I love interesting socks and have amassed quite a collection. The place that I want to visit before I die would be Greece. I like to read all seven Harry Potter books once a year the way some people read the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. (Sorry JRRT, but JKR kicks butt in my book.) I love art, and use my creativity in many different ways through painting, crafts, and makeup. I love to cook and try new things, and I especially love to eat. My favorite "date" is to go wine tasting, and do so with my husband once or twice a year. I love musical theater and think the world would be much better off if we all just watched more musicals. I am 100% a cat person and, although I think dogs can be really cute and sweet, they make me sneeze so cats will always rule. I love faeries and magic, mythology, theology, philosophy, and psychology. I regularly do logic puzzles and sometimes crosswords. I adore Bette Midler, Betty White, and Carol Burnett. I am not ashamed to admit that I watch Glee. I would like to start making some of my own clothes because I can't stop myself from buying fabric. I'm sure that there is much more, but I'm suddenly distracted by something shiny.
