You guys, this is so exciting! CVS is celebrating all of us beauty lovers by making August their Beauty Appreciation Month! Can i get a whoooohooo?! I've loved CVS since i was in my early teens. I lived near one growing up and frequented it often. I loved strolling through the beauty aisle and finding new products to try, or simply picking up a magazine and polish to entertain me for a couple of hours! I have fond memories of these little trips and to this day, i still love visiting the store. I thought it'd be fun to show you some of the drugstore beauty products I'm loving right now! Some of these are new launches so hopefully you'll spot them on your next trip to CVS.
OK stop everything, if you get anything on your next CVS shopping trip, you MUST get Maybelline's Master Kajal eye liners! OH EM GEEEE you have no idea! The color is soooo intense and the shape makes application a cinch! I'm officially obsessed! I want every color stat! The Maybelline Dream Wonder powder is a great option for setting your foundation. Their dream wonder products in general are pretty good!
As you can see, there are several Salma Hayek Nuance products here. I've been fortunate enough to try many of these as they are exclusive to CVS and absolutely love them! The quality is amazing! The formula on the nail polishes is spectacular! They're intense and get the job done in just one coat! The Lights, Camera, Action Eye Trios are quite possibly the most innovative beauty product. In one product you'll get, creme shadow, highlighter and eye liner! Yes, all three in one! Perfect staple for your make up bag! The Smooth and Firm Protector is phenomenal! I've been using this beauty and love that it has sun protection as well! It applies matte and feels very much like Benefit's PoreFessional! It's uhhhmazing!
OK I'm loving the new mascara launches! L'Oreal's Miss Manga Mascara and Rimmel London's Scandal Eyes Rockin' Curves will be your drugstore lash BFFs! Seriously, they give your lashes the deepest of color while creating loads of length and volume! Would you like individual reviews? Leave a commend and let me know... I'm happy to do it! Check out L'Oreal's gorgeous shadows! They have some gorgeous options to compliment your fabulous lashes!
Lets chat lips! From sheers to intense, you'll find an array of options at CVS. I'm seriously loving
L'Oreal's Collection Prive by Doutzen in 600 Doutzen's Nude. It's the perfect compliment to deep smokey eyes! Rimmel London's Dazzling Dutchess Collection Lippies are seriously intense. They go on smooth and feel like a lip balm on your lips. However, the color is intense! I'm loving the color Back to Fuchsia! If balm is more your thing, you may want to check out L'Oreal's Colour Riche Glossy Balm. It feels like your wearing the most hydrating balm while adding a dab of color to spice things up. I'm loving Baby Doll 230 but there are so many fantastic options! I will be picking up a few more of these!
