I just barely managed to make it to Rite-Aid for the 40% off Revlon sale that I told you about. I wasn’t able to grab one of the cream blushes, unfortunately, but I did manage to grab some new items that I will show you at the end of this post. But first, I snapped pics of a bunch of new collections with my phone, so let me show you what I found.
I’ve been hearing a ton about Maybelline LE Porcelains Collection. Though I could never pull off these shades in a million years, these pastel tones are hugely popular. If you have the right skin tone, and are interested in the Porcelain collection, you may want to jump on it soon before they are all gone.
I could have sworn that I already posted about Maybelline Exotic Escape Collection, but I couldn’t find it, so I guess not. Anyway, Exotic Escape is Maybelline’s summer collection of bright bold colors with a tropical twist. There are some gorgeous options here for those with a brave attitude towards color. The bright orange, yellow, and teal look amazing.
Sally Hansen has yet another collection of polish strips called Rock of Ages. Although I think the designs are pretty cool looking, they are pretty similar to the recently released Avril Lavigne collection. As much as I love these strips, and you know I do, I feel like it’s too much of a good thing. Do you know what I mean? I don’t even have time to buy anything from a new collection before there’s an even newer one popping up. I probably shouldn’t be complaining about variety, though, right? Anyway, here is a new collection for your inner wild child to come out and play.
Also from Sally Hansen, magnetic nail polish. This looks pretty much like the other magnetic collections I’ve seen. Sally Hansen’s version had the magnet in the cap and they retail for $8.99. I like the shade range. I’ve also seen these at Target, so keep an eye out there as well.
City Color has a new display out containing their Summer Glow Bronzers. If their blushes are any indication of how they perform, these bronzers are probably soft and very pigmented. Also, they are huge, so $3.99 is a bargain.
Have you seen these Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains yet? They are popping up everywhere, and are all the rage. The idea is that these have the same long-lasting color as the Just Bitten Lip Stains, but instead of a marker style stain, they are like jumbo crayons. They claim to be lightweight and moisturizing with long-lasting lip color.
I am so tempted by these new Cover Girl Eye Enhancers. Though I really don’t need new eyeshadow quads at this point, the shades are so pretty. I really love the color combos that Cover Girl put together with these. With the possible exception of the smoky grays, I don’t see a single one that I wouldn’t want to have.
There are new shades of the Cover Girl Outlast All-Day Lip Color. These claim to provide long-lasting color and shine for up to 16 hours in just 2 easy steps. “Outlast has a moisturizing topcoat that helps lock in shine — no feathering, no bleeding”, says Cover Girl.
Last up is the new Cover Girl + Olay Pressed Powder. It claims to brighten skin tone and soften imperfections without getting cakey. I haven’t actually used any of the Cover Girl + Olay products, but if you are a fan of the foundations, you may want to give this powder a try.
And finally, these are the items that I purchased with the sale. Those Balm Stains were too hard to resist, so I picked up a couple for review. I also wanted to try the Whipped Foundation that I told you about a couple weeks ago. Since Revlon nail polish was on sale for $2.99, I grabbed a bottle of Whimsical, which I had meant to purchase months ago, but never got around to it. Thanks to Rite-Aid’s sale on Revlon, I saved $14.80 on these products alone.
I hope that you saw something that piqued your interest. Happy hunting!
