Hit or Miss Monday: New Drugstore Releases

The drugstore has been on fire lately with the new releases! All the major brands have been coming out with new stuff and there have been a few items to pique my interest. I initially planned on separately reviewing all the items I picked up, but I decided to put them together in the form of a video because it was easier for me and I figured it may be more helpful for you! Don’t worry, I will eventually get back to writing blog posts independent of my videos, but for now I hope you enjoy the videos!

Have you checked out any of the new drugstore releases? Were they hits or misses?

Hit or Miss Monday: Covergirl The Super Sizer Mascara

Remember my “Weekly Hit or Miss” posts? It was one of my favorite types of posts so I’m disappointed that I didn’t keep up with it. Now, I will try to do them on Mondays because that seems to be a better time for me to make sure I get it done. It’s not that I’m not trying products, but I just never seem to get pictures and posts done by Friday. Hopefully I can better keep up with it this time!

Weekly Hit or Miss: Becca Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle in Guava/Moonstone

As soon as I saw the promo picture for this item, I knew I had to have it. The new Becca Beach Tint Shimmer Souffles are a combination of two of their best selling products; the Beach Tints and the Shimmering Skin Perfectors. From the outside, they have a marbled appearance of  color and shimmer. They really remind me of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes upon first glance. These little pots are supposed to do magic, check out the description from Sephora below.

“This lightweight formula packs four must-have qualities into one formula: a powder to add a pop of color, a stain to give staying power, an illuminating highlighter, and a cream to deliver a flawless finish. Water-resistant, each pot combines Becca’s bestselling Beach Tint with a Shimmering Skin Perfector™ for effortlessly buildable, complexion-enhancing color, soothing hydration, and a youthful glow.”

Pretty much every beauty blogger I know owns either Mary Lou-Manizer or Betty Lou-Manizer if not both. Little sister, Cindy Lou-Manizer is the newest addition that is marketed as a blush and subtle highlight. So how does it work on deeper skin? Keep reading if you would like to find out!
