New Drugstore Items + Reviews

I love when drugstore brands come out with new products and I was not disappointed with the selection. 

Probably the most exciting new release are the L'Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain. I have the color Berry Persistent.

They are supposed to be a dupe for the YSL Glossy Stains, not that I would know because I find it difficult to shell out $32 for a lip product. L'Oreal owns YSL so it makes sense that they would come out with a similar, cheaper version. Normally, I'm not a fan of stains because I find them drying on my lips, these however, were not drying at all and the staying power was excellent. They did leave my lips sticky but that went away after a while. They have an odd "plastic" smell but to be honest that doesn't really bother me. I did notice that when it started to wear off, the color was a little patchy and it settled into the lines in my lips. Not a very attractive look so be sure to keep your eye on that. Overall, I enjoy the L'Oreal stains and am really curious to see if the YSL ones are a lot better. Let me know if you have tried them!

Next new item is the L'Oreal True Match Super Blendable Crayon Concealer. My Shade is Fair/Light W1-2-3 (W for warm tone) 
I am really impressed with this concealer. I hate the True Match line so I didn't really have high hopes. It's very lightweight so don't expect a lot of coverage but it blended beautifully and didn't crease under my eyes. This concealer is in a crayon form, like the popular lip crayons, so the bottom twists up to reveal more product. The tip will go blunt eventually which is a bummer but I still like the concept. If you don't need a lot of coverage, try this product out and I think you'll like it!

Finally, we have the new Maybelline Color Tattoo Metals Cream Eyeshadows. The colors are Gold Rush and Barely Branded. 

I've been a fan of these cream shadows since they were released a while ago. Gold Rush is very glittery and has a lot of fallout but I think it would look beautiful for a New Years Eve look. Barely Branded is the most neutral color they have. However, if you bought Barely Beige in the fall collection (which I did) they are almost the exact same color. Barely Beige is ever so slightly more pink than Barely Branded. You definitely don't need both. Oh well, I have a backup I guess. 

Have you picked up anything new at the drugstore? I always love hearing about great finds!
