January is flying by. I’m really behind on showing you the new products for Spring 2013. I have a ton of pics to share of some new displays that I spotted last weekend. I found these at Walgreens, but they should be readily available elsewhere as well.
Sorry for the blurry photo, but I came across this gigantic display from Maybelline with a bunch of new products for Spring. Part of the display are the Master Duo eye liners as well as the new Metallic collection of Color Tattoos. I took close ups of some of the other items.
First up, the new Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Lifter Foundation and Perfector Powder. For the Instant Age Rewind Lifter Foundation, the display reads “The first lifting foundation plus smoothing primer. Get firmer, lifted skin instantly!” I’m especially interested in the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Perfector Powder. The display reads “Skin perfecting powder plus smoothing primer. The first dual action anti-aging powder.” I am very curious as to how that actually works and the consistency of the powder.
Also in the display was the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Spot Concealer. I’m not sure how this differs from the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser Concealer that came out last year. At first glance they seem pretty similar. I love last year’s model, though, so this product might be worth a try.
Finally, we have the Maybelline ColorSensational Vivids Collection of lipsticks. Though not the best picture, I can say that this collection has some pretty unique shades for the drugstore. All of the shades are bright and vivid, and you should definitely take a gander at the color selection, especially if you are looking for a MAC alternative.
Not part of the gigantic display from above, but also from Maybelline is the ColorSensational Color Whisper Collection of lipsticks. These are Maybelline’s answer to the Revlon Lip Butters, good coverage with a “whisper-light” feel on the lips. I love hybrid lip products, so I certainly want to try these out.
Rimmel has a new BB Cream out, and despite my loathing of drugstore “BB Creams” I actually want to give this one a try. Though obviously not a true BB Cream, I have read some great reviews of this Rimmel 9-in-1 Super Makeup and want to give it a chance.
I found a somewhat incomplete display of the new L’Oreal Trendsetter nail Collection. This display offers only the three metallic finish shades: Look At Me, Just Jet Setting, and Don’t Hate Me Cuz. The display also features the new Nail Lingerie stickers that mimic a gradient manicure. They look gorgeous in the display photos, but I do not know how the perform in real life. I wish I had found the entire Trendsetter Collection, because the other spring shades are actually really nice. I’ll keep looking.
Also from L’Oreal are the new Visible Lift blushes. These are spongy cream blushes, similar in texture to the Maybelline Bouncy Blushes from last year. Just like the Bouncy Blushes, these Visible Lift blushes are getting mixed reviews. I really think that whether you like them or not will be based almost entirely on the shade you buy and your skin tone. These will look lovely on some people, and not work at all on others.
Last up we have the new Neutrogena Crease proof Eyeshadow sticks. These cream eyeshadow sticks claim to have a built in primer to prevent creasing and fading. Though there are only four shades in this display, there are six shades in the collection. Also displayed is the Neutrogena Healthy Lengths Mascara.
Wow, that was a lot of products thrown at you. It’s that time of year. I hope that you saw something that interested you. I am definitely interested in a few of these items. Let me know if you have tried anything that I’ve shown here and what you though of it.
