NEW CoverGirl Lip Lava Review + Swatches | New at the Drugstore 2014

Hi beauties!

Today we’re going to be reviewing the new CoverGirl Lip Lava’s. These claim to have the pigmentation of a lipstick and the high shine of a gloss – AKA it claims to be my perfect lip product! I got these for around $10 each at CVS, but they were having a buy one get one half off deal so I got them for a bit cheaper.

These come in a clear long tube and have a brush tip applicator that’s very fine and easy to apply.

(Lychee Lava, Mango Lava, Lava Love Live, Ooh La Lava, Look It’s Lava, Lava Glow)

These were more pigmented than I thought they would be, but I just can’t get over the glitter/shimmer in them. I feel like the shimmer shows up more than the actual color pigment, so these are a no go for me. With that being said, they did last between 3-5 hours on me, so the lasting power gets an A.

Have you tried these out yet? What are your thoughts?

NEW REVLON PHOTOREADY AIRBRUSH EFFECT FOUNDATION REVIEW + DEMO | New at the Drugstore 2014

Hi beauties!

Today we’re reviewing the brand new Revlon Photoready Airbrush Effect Foundation. Revlon has also recently come out with their InstaFix Foundation Stick (which I have a review on here). I got this foundation for around $14 from drugstore.com, but you’ll be able to find it in stores anywhere Revlon is sold.

I personally haven’t had the best experience with Revlon foundations just because I find them to be too heavy a coverage for me, but I actually quite liked this foundation. I prefer applying it with a beauty blender rather than a makeup brush because I find that the beauty blender soaks up any excess product that would otherwise make the foundation look cakey.

When I initially applied it, it did look pretty cakey, but after letting it set into my skin for a couple minutes it actually looked super natural and it felt nice and comfortable on the skin.

Pros? Gives medium to build able coverage, has a pump, feels lightweight, applied wonderfully with a beauty blender.

Cons? Has a ton of glitter, feels cakey when you initially apply it, comes in a glass jar.

Have you guys spotted this foundation or tried it out yet? What are your thoughts on it?!

xoxo,

Michelle
