New Drugstore Beauty Products :: Breakthroughs OR Busts

Posted Feb 14 2013 9:01am
If you were looking for a Valentine themed blog, rush to the bottom of this post to find my favorite links.  If you're already over this much hyped about holiday, stick around for this part that has zero to do with Cupid.

There is a magnetic force in the drugstore that draws me towards the makeup aisles.  I'm not kidding - completely serious.  Even if I'm just there to buy baby wipes or bananas, I feel the need to buy a blush.

 {L'Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain in "Pink Rebellion." $9.99}

{Cover Girl Clump Crusher mascara by Lash Blast. $6.99}
Here are two new drugstore products from L'Oreal and Cover Girl that have been getting lots of love in the way of multiple ads in magazines and TV commercial air time.  Here are my personal opinions on whether or not these two were worth all the hype.

1st product : Wet Shine Lip Stain

This stain is supposed to be a semi knockoff version of the much talked about YSL Glossy Stains I tried out here , that is to have the staying power of a stain with the look of a lipgloss without the sticky feel.  This formula feels just like I'm swiping on water - almost weirdly water-like.  It took 2 coats of it to get this deep of a shade, which still doesn't look nearly as pigmented as the advertisement (of course I bought the same shade in the ad - I'm a sucker.).

 {Bare lips on left,  two coats later on right.}

{From L to R - 0 coats, 1 coat, 2 coats. Clump FREE!}

{New mascara and lipstick ON!}
So BREAKTHROUGH OR BUST for the mascara?  Total breakthrough.  I tried my best to get this stuff to clump up.  I took that wand every which-a-way on my lashes and the wand just crushed up any slight clump on my lashes and separated effortlessly.  I found this mascara to be more lengthening than thickening though. My lashes look longer than ever but not super thick.  But that's okay, because I didn't have to spend any time trying to comb thru yucky spider lashes.
