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.

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?

Lancome recently released a foundation in a unique type of packaging. The new Lancome Miracle Cushion Foundation is a liquid foundation that comes in a compact. There is a sponge like material (or cushion) that is basically holding the liquid in place. This foundation is supposed to be lightweight, hydrating, and brightening. It also has the benefit of being very portable due to it being in a compact. I decided to give this product a try in the shade 450 Suede N. Check out the video below to see how it fared!

Is the Lancome Miracle Cushion Foundation something you would be interested in trying?
