Do you shop drugstore beauties? I do all the time.
I swear I am in CVS once or twice a week - at least. In my small 2 mile square town, we are lucky enough to have two CVS/pharmacy stores. I go there for just about everything; last minutes school project items, prescription, band aids, cough drops and my weekly magazines. The trips are quick until I nonchalantly walk down the beauty aisle like I've seen it all before. But I must spend at least ten minutes looking over my favorite beauties and checking out what's new each time I'm there. Of course I walk out with what I need and what I want: a few new beauties each time I shop. At least I get rewarded. Did you know that when you join CVS/pharmacy Beauty Club, you earn $5 ExtraBucks Rewards for every $50 you spend? Should I be ashamed that I earn new ExtraBucks just about every week? Nah - I'm a beauty blogger. It's par for the course, right?
Enough about me and my beauty shopping habits. Let's talk beauty trends for a few. CVS/pharmacy had their experts beak down the top ten beauty trends for fall. Take a look at the trends and then my product suggestions, to go along with said trend.
All Lacquered Up
Our nails have to look their best and nail sales are booming. Look for the new Nail HQ in stores. These are special kiosks that will display the latest and greatest nail care products and trends.
I like Essie's new Stylenomics collection with six new shades, for just $8.00 each.
Reaching New Lengths
We are obsessed with our lashes. We all want lashes that are longer and fuller, so it's no surprise that lash product sales have increased 48% since last year. Look for new products with the latest in lash technology.
I like L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Power Volume Waterproof Mascara for $7.95.
Salon Solutions At Home
We want to save money and time by doing some of those "only at the salon" services on our own. New DIY products continue to hit store shelves.
I like Completely Bare Salon Quality Wax Kit for $12.99.
All For One
BB Creams are a top seller. It's no wonder I've reviewed about a dozen or so of these innovative products in just the last year.
I like Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector for $12.99.
Makeup With Skincare Benefits
We've always needed our cosmetics to do the job of making us look great. Now we want them to do more by benefiting our skin as we wear them.
I like COVERGIRL and Olay Simply Ageless Foundation for $14.99.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. Our skin is at it's best when we sleep. Night time products to benefit our skin as we sleep are on the rise. New and better nighttime treatments are constantly being released to broaden this new category.
I like Garnier Dark Spot Overnight Peel for $16.99.
Not just bright and bold in the summer, the newer bold colors on the eyes as well as on our lips and tips, continue to be a hot trend.
I like L'Oreal Paris Color Caresse Lipstick (which comes in 16 hot shades) for $9.99.
Feeding Your Roots
New hair care launches are having us rethinking our hair care strategy. The new beauties have us strengthening and restoring hair from the scalp to the tip, and hair couldn't be more beautiful.
I like the new Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner for $5.99 each.
Saving Face In Less Time
We want results and we want them now. New products that promise to deliver faster results are all the rage.
I like Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Serum for $24.99.
Super Star Scents
While the fragrance section may be getting bigger; the prices on these star power products better, because they are smaller in price - up to 20% less than at the department store.
I like Beyonce Pulse for $28.00.
