When shopping for new beauty products this spring, don't forget to shop the aisles of your local drugstore. The shelves are literally stocked with some of the best beauty buys this season. From a gentle cleanser that exfoliates (you will fall in love with this), a mascara that will more than triple the size of your lashes to a gel polish system that needs no UV light, there are quite a few new beauty products that I am loving. Here are 10 new drugstore beauty buys that are going to have you wanting to hop in your car and start shopping now.
1. Physicians Formula Argan Oil
This "magical" oil from Morocco is a weightless multi-tasking oil that instantly absorbs into the skin. It combines the benefits of a moisturizer, primer, brightener, protector & treatment in one to smooth the appearance of fine lines brighten dull skin.
2. Rimmel London Provocalips 16HR Kissproof Lipcolor
This long-lasting lip color locks into place with a two part system. First, apply the gorgeous side of color then lock it into place with the top coat side to seal it in all day - up to 16 hours. I like that is it not a drying formula.
3. CeraVe Renewing SA Cleanser
A gentle daily cleanser with the added benefit of salicylic acid to help with oiliness and breakouts. Not meant for use on drier skins, but effective for use on those with combination or oily skin types, this is a great choice for daily cleansing. It doesn't leave behind any residue and does a good job at removing all dirt, oil and makeup.
4. Almay Smart Shade Butter Kiss Lipstick
This amazing smelling and buttery soft lipstick instantly hydrates lips and leaves a beautifully coordinated tint to lips. It's easy to select a shade based on your skin tone so it's never shocking and always looks soft and pretty.
5. Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick
Slick, true pigmented color with a light as air feel is what you get in s few swipes of this revolutionary lipstick that comes in 20 shades. It has a gel texture so it never feels waxy and lends to the light as air feeling.
6. Garnier Fructis Sleek Primer Style Prep
Styling hair and protecting it with one product is no easy feat, but now it is with this one spray in treatment. It makes hair easier to manage and style and protects it up to 450 degrees. I spray in at the roots and then comb it through my wet hair right before blow drying.
7. Sally Hansen Miracle Gel
This two step, no light true gel manicure lasts a week on nails for the ultimate high gloss manicure. With 45 beautiful colors to choose from, it is so simple to use. Apply two coats of color then one coat of the special top coat and nails are drenched in chip free color for a week (plus). No light needed; it's what we've been waiting for!
8. Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer
Similar to the lipstick I mentioned above but in glossy form, this lightweight gel based gloss goes on with a light as air feel with gorgeous color and a ton of gloss. There are 15 beautiful pigmented shades that are not sticky and look gorgeous on.
9. Revlon Photoready Insta-Fix Makeup
A foundation stick that makes skin look like skin, not made up. It features a unique light-filtering technology to do so as it blurs away flaws. It's easy to blend and great for touch ups to. It only comes in nine shades from ivory to caramel, so if you are very fair or very dark, unfortunately this one won't work for you.
10. Physicians Formula Instant Lash Extension Kit Mascara
This is a two part kit that instantly boosts lashes by up to 300%. Wow. Yes, with fibers that you apply (follow the instructions carefully) you can attain the look for false lashes or extensions with this three step process and two products that come in the kit. It's easy to use and I'm amazed and how big and bold my lashes looked.
You can find all of these new beauty products in your favorite drugstores now. I shop for all of my drugstore beauty buys at CVS/pharmacy where the aisles are always fully stocked in the latest bath, body, makeup, hair and nail products. I'm lucky to have two CVS stores in my little town so if one store is out of something or doesn't have a shade or beauty product I need, the other store does.
