~RGBL Best of 2012~ My Favorite Foundations and Face Products....

Sunday, December 30, 2012

Hey Everyone!

In 2012, I had a lot of fun with learning to create a great and sometime flawless canvas on my face. I found some great staple products that worked for me.

 I went through a couple of foundations and BB creams but the ones that created a flawless face and were a perfect color match were Laura Mercier Oil Free Supreme Foundation in Toffee Bronze, L'Oreal True Match Lumi in C6 Soft Sable, and mark. Got The Goods Foundation Lotion in Shade 10.
 My favorite setting powders for my foundations, concealers and even eyebrows were from Ruby Kisses Set N' Forget in Banana and Earth. I also joined the bandwagon of Ben Nye Banana Powder customers and I LOVE this powder!!!
 I know it looks like I'm late boots but MAC Fix+ was a star products for me. I actually went through two bottles of it. Worth every penny. I also found a great brightening concealer in Walmart in Hard Candy The Perfect Cover Up in Tan.

I learned to contour my cheeks CORRECTLY via You Tube this year. LOL! The technique does carve you face and gives you cheekbones you didn't have before. I used CoverGirl Queen Collection Bronzer in Ebony Bronze for the most part until I discovered Iman Blush in Sable.

~Haul~ Ulta, Rite-Aid, Walgreens, Big Lots ( New 2013 Drugstore Products)...

Hey Everyone,

Yesterday, I went on drugstore troll in search of the new 2013 products that I've seen on FB, Twitter and Instagram. Since most of it isn't limited edition, I didn't haul out real big, I know that most of it will eventually show up in the regular displays. However, it was fun finding and spotting some the goodies!! I even scooped a couple of pieces.

 I heard that there were SOHO brushes at Big Lots, so I went into the 1st Big Lots of the day and got lucky!!! I will check the 2nd Big Lots in a couple of days for powder brushes....
 Since the Walgreens stores in Spartanburg are very spread out over the city, I went into one store and as soon as walked in the door, matter of fact, I could see from my parking space....Fergie by Wet N' Wild. AND it was UNTOUCHED. I literally peeling the tape off the coupons on the display to use them!! What a drugstore product junkie's dream!!! LOL!

After much scoping around the display, I only got three pieces:

Photo Op Eyeshadow in Desert Festival
Lipsticks in Bebot Love and Ferguson Crest Cabernet
 I found the new Revlon nail colors in Rite Aid and picked up Nail Enamel in Girly....
 To my surprise, my Ulta was lacking and slacking on new products. I found more new stuff in Walgreens. Nonetheless, I came across the much hyped L'Oreal Caresse Shine Lip Tint Balms or something like that.You can understand how I feel about them so far, if you follow me on Instagram.:) ( ruralglamour).
Best find for me besides the Fergie Collection were the L'Oreal True Match Crayon Concealers. I'm not much of a True Match fan but I heard the hype about these and it was a happy find. After debating over two colors( because they were 8.99 in Walgreens) I got Medium/Deep W6-7-8.

Here are some other goodies I found....These are all from Walgreens displays.

 Rimmel's new BB cream wayyyyyy up high. LOL!
 The new L'Oreal display.
 The Maybelline Vivids lipsticks. I passed on those for now.
 Sally Hansen Salon Effects has french manicure strips. I'm digging that!!
Revlon's new BB Cream sans a deep/dark shade.:/

Have you seen any of these new drugstore goodies?
