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?

MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation First Impressions

I love trying new foundations and letting you all know about them! Today, the foundation that I reviewed is the new MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation in the shade NC45. I really wanted to try this one out because it claimed to be lightweight, long wearing, and waterproof. If you would like to see how it lived up to those claims, check out the video below!

Would you like me to do some sort of foundation round-up where I talk about my foundation collection? If so, leave me a comment as to how you would like to see that done!

Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Palette

One of the items that I was most excited about picking up during the most recent Sephora VIB Sale (click here to see that haul) was the new Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Palette. Swatches for this palette are starting to pop up online, but I haven’t seen many on my skin tone yet, so I wanted to share those with you. I can’t give a review on these yet since I haven’t used them, but the swatches seem pretty promising. By the way, if you’re wondering why I haven’t used this palette yet it is because I recently gave birth to my first child! Since then, I haven’t really worn any makeup, but I swatched this prior to giving birth so I didn’t want the swatches to be in vain.
