Drugstore Sightings! Maybelline, Revlon, Almay & L'Oreal

Today I'll be doing my second Drugstore Sightings post! A few of the products I'll be showing have been available here in Canada for a few weeks now, but I've been a bad beauty blogger and haven't taken pictures until now.. Sorry! Some products I've just seen for the first time today though, like these:


The Polka Dot and Holographic Color Show polishes by Maybelline. The holo polishes are more duochromes then holographic, and none of them seemed too interesting. A lot of the Polka Dot ones were gone (as you can see). I wasn't sure about the polka dots trend but after seeing swatches of these I decided on a favorite and ended up getting it.. It's the lone green one in the front and it's called Drops of Jade (half of me got it just because my name is Jade, hehe).


Here are the Color Tattoo Pure Pigments, also by Maybelline. These have been out for a while here, but I decided to get a picture anyway. These never interested me, and they also seem to be getting pretty 'meh' reviews. I'll be sticking to the regular Color Tattoos!

Urgh, I keep forgetting to get pictures of the new Fit Me Foundation sticks, Falsies Big Eyes Mascara, and Master Smoky Eye Pencils..! They've all also been available here for a while.


Here are the new Super Lustrous Lipsticks and Lipglosses by Revlon. Oh, and you can actually see the Maybelline Master Smoky Eye Pencils here, too..! Anyway, I'm not too excited about the new Super Lustrous products. I'm not much of a gloss girl, and the new Shine finish of the lipsticks doesn't interest me either.


Next is the coveted PhotoReady SkinLights by Revlon - these used to be discontinued and have finally made a comeback! I'd love to try the first one on the left sometime.. I swatched it and it's absolutely beautiful. I love the glow. These are relatively new to the drugstore here.

 
Did you know that I have never tried an Almay product before? To me it's a brand that always just seems to be.. there. Anyway, this is their new Smart Shade CC Cream. What do you think?
 
 
Ah, the new Magic Nude Liquid Powder from L'Oreal.. I've heard this stuff is super liquid-y but I was not prepared in the slightest for what came out of the bottle when I tried to swatch it..! In seconds it was running all down my hand and wrist and ended up making a mess. It was kind of traumatic. I've heard mixed reviews about this product, and personally I won't be trying it.
 
 
The last thing I have to show is also by L'Oreal and it's the Voluminous Million Lashes Excess Mascara. L'Oreal mascaras never seem to get my attention, and I've only tried one which was the original Voluminous Million Lashes (which I did grow to like). After seeing Hollie's (from Eating Lipstick) review of this mascara I don't think I'll be touching it with a ten foot pole, though.
 
Well, that concludes this post.. I'm sorry I didn't have more exciting products to show! I'll try to keep my camera with me so that as soon as I see new products I can show you!

  1. I've tried almost all of these products and my favorites are definitely the Revlon Shine Super Lustrous lipsticks and glosses! I'm a bit on the fence about the pigments.
