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?

I wasn’t too hyped about the collection because I thought it looked too similar to previous items that they released, but I was interested in a couple of items. I only picked up Caramel Cool Color Tattoo and Charming Cocoa Color Elixir. Keep reading for swatches and my thoughts!
