Greetings from the head of the party, fellow rogues!
No, I haven’t discovered a trap (unless you’re watching out for your wallet at the moment!), it’s something much better! Loot!
As an aside: I must apologise for recent sparse posting – the giant spiders nesting in our internet cables have struck again (there’s always at least one egg left, right?)! Things should be on the mend, but enchanted arachnids are pretty tough. There’s just no talking with them, honestly.
Back on topic: I didn’t get a chance to take swatches, unfortunately, but there were so many ‘new’ things I saw, I just wanted to wave all the treasure at you to let you know it’s here! Since the post is a little more sparse than usual, I wanted to add a question for all you fellow adventurers out there:
What are your favourite drugstore/pharmacy makeup products? Holy grails? Epic high-end dupes?
My own favourites include Revlon’s lip products (Super Lustrous lipsticks and Colorburst Lip Butters, glosses and chubby pencils!) the Maybelline pot gel liner, and some neat neons from the Australis line. I’ve also had good times with Nyx (although sadly it’s not directly available here), and Bloom used to be available in NZ pharmacies and their lipsticks remain a firm favourite.
Inquiring rogue minds want to know! Let me know what you’re a fan of in the comments below :-D.
On with the loot!
We’ve got polishes from Revlon (see some swatches on The Makeup Train here!), the Maybelline Color Elixir glosses have finally turned up (Christine has her usual impeccable reviews here!), Za seems to have some new glosses out with some fetching colours (anyone tried these?) and L’Oreal has a new line of matte lipsticks!
Phew! What do you think, fellow adventurers? Anything catch your eye? Have you tried any of these? What did you think? 🙂 Don’t forget to let me know what your drugstore favourites are in the comments below!
Until next time, fellow rogues, don’t forget to check for loot as well as traps!
