The first day of Fall is right around the corner, so I guess it’s appropriate to show you the new Halloween displays that I saw at Rite-Aid. Halloween is my second favorite holiday (behind Christmas) and I love the funky products that pop up this time of year. Halloween is in six weeks, and I think it’s the perfect time of year to go really bold and experimental with your makeup. Here are some products to help you on your way.
First up, since I was at Rite-Aid, I snapped a picture of the Blue cross Pumpkin Polishes that they put out every year. The left hand display features all of the glow-in-the-dark polishes. The right side contains the cream and glitter polishes. Something that I believe is new this year are the “2-Way Nail Art Pen and Brush” polishes. Those are the more traditionally shaped bottles. Unscrew the cap for the normal nail brush, or pull off the cap to expose the pen. Also in this display are Skull Lip Glosses.
Next up, from Fright Night, there are several styles of false eye lashes and temporary hair color. You can pick up colored hair spray or colored hair gel in a wide variety of shades.
Or, if it’s more your speed, you can pick up some hair chalk, also by Fright Night. A trick that I have heard to keep hair chalk in place without it transferring is to spray your hair with hairspray first, chalk it up, and then spray again. That should hopefully keep your clothes chalk free.
Fright Night had a couple of displays of temporary tattoos. In addition to the typical face and body tattoos (note the mustaches), there was an entire display of eye tattoos. If you don’t feel confident enough in your skills, or simply don’t have time for an intricate design, you can always tattoo your eye makeup on. From funky winged “liner” to full on “eye shadow” looks with designs, there are many different option to explore.
Speaking of tattooing makeup, Kiss had a display of eye and lip tattoos. I’ve seen Violent Lips lip tattoos for years, and have been curios about them. I didn’t want to shell out the money for such a gimmicky product that I had low expectations for, though. For $2.99, I may have to pick up that Cheetah print lip tattoo for a cat look. Hmmm… we’ll see.
This collection of smaller displays is mostly Fantasy Makers (by Wet n Wild). Starting at the top left, is the Ghoulish Glitz collection. this includes glitter gels, glitter liners, and Confetti (glitter) powders. On the right are the painter palettes for bolder looks. Skipping down to the bottom left, are the Fantasy Makers Wicked Look face Kits. These include false lashes, an eyeshadow duo, nail polish, and a lipstick for a complete look. On the bottom right are the Fantasy Makers Hauntingly Hip Palettes. These kits include a 6-pan cream shadow palette, a mini liner, and a sticker/stencil. The idea is that you stick on the stencil wherever you want the design and than paint it using the cream shadows. Then you pull off the reusable stencil, leaving behind an intricate design. None of these products are new this year, but there are new shades and designs to choose from.
Sandwiched in between the Fantasy Makers displays are some nail products. The middle left is a display of Halloween themed ImPress press-on nails by Broadway. I’ve been meaning to try this brand, but haven’t gotten around to it. I’ve heard that they aren’t bad, much better than the Lee Press-On Nails from days or yore. The middle left display features Kiss Nail Dress stickers in various Halloween designs. I have not had good luck with these in the past, but maybe they have improved.
I think that there are some really cool new additions to the Halloween lineup this year, as well as some old stand-bys. I’m excited to see what else pops up. I have seen picture of the new Fantasy Makers paper lashes, but have not seen them in store yet. I’ll be in Disney World for Halloween this year, so I’m not really sure if we are dressing up. It’s still pretty early, but do you have plans set for Halloween? What are you dressing up as? Let me know in the comments below. 🙂
