Spotted - New Physicians Formula Products - Shimmer Strips and Sexy Eyes

Happy Saturday!  Today I bring pictures of a new display I found at CVS.  I saw this among the other new Physicians Formula displays that are out there.  This display includes new Shimmer Strip and Sexy Booster eyeshadows and eyeliners.

I was getting odd looks while taking pictures, so I left off the third eyeliner on the right.  My apologies.  I did get pictures of all the products though.  Let's see what we have.

Sexy Booster Ooh La La Sexy Eyes Trio

Sexy Booster Oh So Sexy Eye Shadow Quad

Shimmer Strips Nude Palette in Natural Nude

Shimmer Strips Nude Palette in Warm Nude

Shimmer Strips Eyeliner Trio in Warm Nude Eyes

Shimmer Strips Eyeliner Trio in Natural Nude Eyes

Shimmer Strips Eyeliner Trio in Brown Eyes

Shimmer Strips Eyeliner Trio in Green Eyes

Shimmer Strips Eyeliner Trio in Blue Eyes (sorry this is blurry)

The new Shimmer Strips Eyeliner Trios all state that they're shimmery and have silver sparkles on the eyeliner packaging.  I own some of the old Shimmer Strips eyeliners and they do not have the sparkles on the packaging.

Has anyone else seen these?  Tried any of the products?  What do you think of them?

Swatches - New L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows

Hello everyone!  I hope you are all well.  It is almost Friday!  Can't wait to get into the weekend.

Today I stopped by my local HEB and picked up two more of the L'Oreal Infallible eyeshadows in the new colors.  I had purchased shade 756, Always Pearly Pink, late last year.  To add to my collection, I picked up 758 Purple Priority and 759 Burst Into Bloom.

These shades are very pretty and very shimmery.  They are very smooth, almost creamy to the touch.  They are lovely in their pigmentation as well.

Always Pearly Pink

Burst Into Bloom

Purple Priority

These colors came out great in swatches.  Purple Priority, the deep purple color, came out a bit more flakey than the other two, but it appears that it will be workable.  I'll take it just for the color.

Here are swatches.

I have not tried these on the eye yet, but Temptalia did a review and an eye look with these three shades, so I wanted to link to her here.

Have you tried the new L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows?  What did you think of them?  Any others in the set I should try?

Have a lovely Friday everyone!

Products I Want to Use Up in the First Quarter of the Year

Hello everyone!  I hope your week is going well.  Today I wanted to do a post about products that I want to use up during the first three months of the year.  Some of these items have been in my collection for awhile and need to be used up before I move on to other items.  Other items are ones that I got as samples with other kits that I would like to try and work through.

This post is inspired by one of my favorite Youtube beauty gurus, Kristin Gehm.  She is so down to earth and fun to watch!  I have gotten a lot of inspiration and ideas from her.  So, thank you, Kristin, for being an inspiration!

On top of my makeup vanity is a small basket that I am now keeping products that I want to use up.  This will be a good reminder to use them when I pack my makeup bag in the mornings.  I have filled it with different products, mostly primers and mascara that I received in sample kits.

The basket...

Swatches - Maybelline Master Hi-Light and Master Glaze Blushes

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to make a quick update to my original post showing the display and products of the new Maybelline Master series for blushes.  You can see that post here.

I purchased a few more of the products tonight, so I wanted to share some more swatches with you.

First up, I re-swatched the Pink Rose Master Hi-Light blush.  I have worn this once and I used too heavy a hand.  My cheeks looked sunburned!  Because of that, I do suggest using a light hand with these blushes.  I have noticed that all the blushes have a lot of shimmer to them, so if you do not like shimmer you will want to avoid these blushes.

But I digress, swatches!

Master Hi-Light in Pink Rose

Master Hi-Light in Nude

Master Glaze in Just Pinched Pink

Master Glaze in Make a Mauve

So far I have found the glazes to be very nice and creamy, but need a little bit of work to blend out.  Everything is highly pigmented, so a light hand will really do the trick.

I hope you find these swatches helpful!

New Products - Physicians Formula - Nude Wear Products

Hello everyone!

I found new products at Ulta today.  I saw a post by Physicians Formula on Instagram about these products just a few days ago.  They retail at Ulta for $14.99, so I am going to wait to purchase them until Ulta is running their Buy One Get One 50% off sale or some other sale.  I did snap some pictures for you guys, so you can see what the new set contains.

The Display - Physicians Formula Nude Wear Products

There are six face powders and one concealer in this display.  The pinkish colored powder is in the display twice and is called Rose.

Here is a closer look at all the items:

Glowing Nude Powder in Light

Glowing Nude Bronzer in Light Bronze

Glowing Nude Bronzer in Bronze

Glowing Nude Blush in Rose

Glowing Nude Powder in Medium


Have you seen any of these displays at your local drug or beauty stores?  What do you think of the products?

New Products - Revlon by Marchesa Beauty Tools

Hello everyone and happy Friday!

I wanted to share with you pictures of new products I found while out tonight at my local Walgreens.  This is a set of beauty tools by Revlon done with the Marchesa designs on them.  I thought they were very cute.  Sadly, the display I found did not have the price listed on them.

There are five products in the collection.  Two sets of tweezers, a nail file, a compact, and a box of six nail files.

The display looks like:

And I have pictures of each of the items:

Box o' Files

Slant Tip Tweezers

Slant Tip Tweezers

Mirror Compact

Nail File

On the last item, the nail file, it looks as if you can peel off the top layer and there are multiple files.  Seems interesting.  Has anyone else seen this display out yet?

New Products - Maybelline Hi-Lighting Blushes & Master Glaze Blushes

Over the last few days I have seen the new Maybelline blushes all over the place.  While at Ulta, I managed to snap pictures of all the displayed products.  I have only purchased one of the blushes for swatches and review.  I have had horrible luck with Maybelline blushes in the past, so I did not want to rush out and purchase the slew of them until I tried one or two out.

I have pictures of all the products below in no certain order.

Master Glaze: Plum

Master Glaze: Make a Mauve

Master Glaze: Warm Nude

Master Glaze:  Coral Sheen

Master Glaze:  Pink Fever

Master Glaze:  Pinched Pink

Master Hi-Light:  Deep Bronze

Master Hi-Light:  Coral

Master Hi-Light:  Nude

Master Hi-Light:  Mauve

Master Hi-Light:  Pink Rose

Of all the blushes, I picked up the Master Hi-Light in Pink Rose.  This pink blush has a slight shimmer to it and is wonderfully soft.  The blush is nicely pigmented and blends out quite well on the hand.  I have not used it on the cheeks yet, so I will give a further review in the future.

Below are pictures of the product and swatches.

Has anyone else tried these blushes?  What do you think of them?
