So, rumors have been circulating through the YouTube and blog world that drugstore brands are coming out with bomb-diggity products in the year 2012. I must say that I got sucked into this trend and so on my way home today, I stopped by Walgreens and CVS in a non-busy area to score some goodies. And, much to my surprise, I think I was the first one one-scene – mainly since the displays were untouched and stocked fully.
More information on these later after my usual experimentation process. So far, I’m loving the L’Oreal Color Riche Balms way better than Revlon’s Lip Butters. Yes, Maybelline Color Tattoo cream shadows are exactly like MAC’s paint pots, but way cheaper. My favorite from the get-go are the Infallible shadows by L’Oreal; the moussey texture is just like Armani’s Eyes to Kill shadows, but retail for fraction of the price. Seriously. The Dream Bouncy Blushes are buy 1 get 1 half off and are really cute. I haven’t played with them yet, but I’m definitely going to dabble in them in the next few weeks.
So far, I’m quite pleased with what I snagged today. I haven’t been this excited and happy with my purchases at the drugstore in a long time. I feel the urge to get more of the Infallible shadows while they’re still available, but I will control myself…or at least attempt to.
