Hit or Miss Monday: New Drugstore Releases

The drugstore has been on fire lately with the new releases! All the major brands have been coming out with new stuff and there have been a few items to pique my interest. I initially planned on separately reviewing all the items I picked up, but I decided to put them together in the form of a video because it was easier for me and I figured it may be more helpful for you! Don’t worry, I will eventually get back to writing blog posts independent of my videos, but for now I hope you enjoy the videos!

Have you checked out any of the new drugstore releases? Were they hits or misses?

Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream First Impression

Screen Shot 2014-06-18 at 11.40.52 AM-imp

Maybelline recently released a new BB Cream called the Dream Pure BB. Apparently this product has been out for awhile in other countries, but it is just now making its way to the United States. This BB Cream is supposed to be different from others on the market because it contains an acne fighting medicine, 2% salicylic acid. I have combination skin, but I usually go for things targeted for dry skin because my dry is worse than my oily. For this product, I stepped outside of the box to see how it would work out. I tried it out in the Deep shade. Check out my first impression below!

Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Collection

If you have been a long time subscriber to my blog, then I’m sure you know that I have a thing for the Color Tattoos. At one point I had pretty much all the colors they came out with. Since then I’ve slowed down on them, but whenever they have  a new collection, I at least check it out. Recently, they released the Dare to go Nude Collection for Spring 2014. I wasn’t too hyped about the collection because I thought it looked too similar to previous items that they released, but I was interested in a couple of items. I only picked up Caramel Cool Color Tattoo and Charming Cocoa Color Elixir. Keep reading for swatches and my thoughts!

Did you miss me? 🙂 I know it’s been a little while since my last post, but I took a mini vacay and didn’t do any blogging on my trip. I did however take a few pictures of one of my makeup looks while I was gone. This is the makeup that I wore to the Beyonce concert and it features one of the new MAC Mineralize eyeshadows (from the Tropical Taboo collection). Keep reading for more pictures and details!
