There is something about getting new beauty products. It doesn't even matter how much they cost. Whether it be a dollar or ten, it still magically gives you a boost of confidence. It rushes over you in waves of excitement as the possibilities of the items are actually going to work magic and make us looks and feel more beautiful. Most the time, little do we know that it is our inward beauty, attitude and confidence that makes us beautiful. Two weeks ago or so I decided to grab some new products at the drugstore. I must admit that it had been a very long time since I tried anything new. I was in a hurry because I needed to get ready for my DIY segment on the Central Valley Today Show, so this is what I ended up with as I rushed out the store. I'm going to break down each one and tell you about them today!
1. NYC BIG BOLD & PRECISE liquid eyeliner- the package says 2-in-1 felt tip. It claims that your eyeliner will turn out big and bold and precise. I chose the color black. I was really excited to try this product and for only a few bucks I knew it wouldn't hurt. I am a sucker for a good little cat eye. Think Lauren Conrad. I love minimal eye shadow and a great winged liner just like her. Its kinda my "thang." I've tried this product a few times. HUGE disappointment. While the precision is great, the color is so subtle even without eye shadow. It goes on with a barely there look and no matter how many times I go over it, it doesn't get more intense or darker, Its like a sheer gray. Sad face. Would I recommend this? No.
2. EOS LIP BALM in Vanilla + Mint- I love these lip balms and so do my girls. As a matter of fact, if they find one, they take off with it and lose it. Even if I bought it that day! I think kids in general love these because it is like playing with a ball. I did love the flavor but personally I love the sweet mint by itself and not swirled. Would I buy it again? YES! Would I recommend this? YES!
3. SENSATIONAL FUSE GEL NAIL POLISH- They had me at no base coat and no top coat. It is an all in one gel polish that you use an LED light with to cure. It minimizes the steps. Just two coats of this under the light and you are done. Sadly, after a day it chipped and so I ended up trying it with a base coat and top coat and it lasted 6 days before it chipped. Its great to use when you are in a hurry! Would I buy other color? Yes. Would I recommend? Maybe if you need some gel nails stat.
4. MAYBELLINE BROW DRAMA- This is sculpting brow mascara. Let me say this, it does not fill in your brows but rather keeps them in place while adding a little color. so if you have spots that need to be filled in, this won't help.I fill in my brows first, then use this product to help them stay in place all day. I'm still on the look out for an amazing brow kit from the drug store.
So there you have it! 4 new products that I tried. Have you tried any of them? What are your go to drug store faves? I have 2 more beauty products that I am dying to get my hands on and I'll share those too!
