Recent Sightings at Walgreens!!


Today I thought I would do a recent display sightings post since I haven't been doing my nails for about the past week, plus one broke off down to the quick so I had to really trim back all the others so it would look a little more even.  The really short one is currently getting daily treatments until it grows out to be even with the others.

Anyway...while I've been out to the drugstores looking for the ever-elusive Wet 'n Wild limited edition polish collection, I've spotted lots of new products and new colors of existing products.

One of the Walgreens I went to about a week ago had lots of new products out from both Maybelline and L'Oreal.  I tried to get pictures of everything, but I forgot to get pictures of both brands' lipstick and mascara displays.  I got distracted by swatching a product.  Oops.

Let's start with L'Oreal...
6 NEW core colors to the Infallible eyeshadow line!!!  I WANT!!! but am waiting for a sale.  
I didn't write down the names unfortunately.
5 colors of a NEW product line called Infallible Lacquer Liner 24H gel liner
(l. to r.) 174 Bronze, 172 Navy, 175 Dark Slate, 171 Blackest Black, 173 Espresso
There was also mascara hanging under the gel liners but they didn't make it into a picture, but I think it was one that was released either earlier this year or late last year.
 NEW foundation:  True Match Lumi (had L'Oreal's signature Cool, Neutral, and Warm tones with 5 shades shown in each family).  Plus, each shade had TESTERS!!!
Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream in 4 shades
There was a tester in this display too!

There was also a middle display of lipsticks, but I didn't get a picture of those since I'm trying to not really buy a whole lot of lip products...

Maybelline's turn!
EyeStudio Color Plush quads - 3 new shades.  
There are also a few new duos that didn't fit in the picture.  
Also, below this section of the display was the newer Volum'Express The Mega Plush Mascara.
 This is the quad that really caught my eye:
 #55 Smokey... (the other word got cut off & I didn't notice)

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB cream in 5 shades, and with TESTERS!!
But, Walgreens hadn't put the price on it yet--I saw it for $6.99 at Bed, Bath & Beyond so it will probably be $1-2 higher at the drugstores.
--Right under the BB cream was a row of new shades in the PLUM family for ColorSensational lipsticks--
4 more new quads:  Luminous Lights, which are all on the pastel side (and the texture looked different, but it could have been by design)

I know that there are a few things that do NOT interest me, namely the lipsticks (they tend to all look toooo similar on my lips), the Maybelline mascara and the Luminous Lights quads.  Oh, and the Lumi foundation from L'Oreal--I need no help in the "lumi" department since my skin is already oily.

My maybe purchases are the 2 BB creams.  I did test out the lightest shade of the Maybelline one; it seemed to match my hand pretty well and I didn't notice it turning color or anything (but the hand is a whole lot different from the face).  Those will depend on the reviews as they start to come in.  Also in the maybe category are the new duos from Maybelline since I've never tried them so I'm not sure how pigmented they are.

My WANTS are 5 (maybe 6) of the new shades of Infallible eyeshadows as well as the bronze shade of the new gel liner (I think the other 4 shades are too similar to those I have from Maybelline).  I also really want to get that Smokey quad from the color plush line. 

Wow, this got long.  If you got to this point, YAY!!

Have any of the new products out caught your eye??  Have you tried any or are you still in the "want" phase?
