Friday Fun: New drugstore products! (warning: pic-heavy)

I know it's technically still Thursday but I found some new products at my local drugstores this week and I am excited to share them with you. If there's anything in particular that you'd like for me to review, leave a comment here and I'll do my best to get them! (Click on the images for super-size pics.)

You can't imagine how excited I was to see THESE at my local Rite-Aid this week! I mentioned them in my weekly round-up last week and I've been obsessed with getting one ever since I read Amber's review on BeautyJunkiesUnite. So...of course I picked one up and I'll review it shortly!

EOS Organic Lip Balms:

Jesse's Girl Baked Powder Eyeshadows:

L'Oreal Colour Riche Anti-Aging Serum Lipsticks:

Prestige Skin-Loving Minerals Collection:

Borghese Tuscan Harvest Collection:

Milani Eye Am Perfect Liquid Liner Collection:

Milani Limited Edition TANtastic Baked Bronzers (there's also one that looks like a cream in a pot):

Milani Neutral Eyes Runway Eyes Palettes and Singles (Milani Fans: Are these actually new colors or just old colors repackaged in a new display?):

I couldn't get a good pic but this eyeshadow single is definitely an Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy dupe:

L'Oreal Carbon Black Waterproof Voluminous Mascara and Carbon Black Lineur Intense Eyeliner:

Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Makeup Remover Collection:

Is there anything here that you're excited to buy? Have you tried any of these new products already? I'd love to hear your thoughts!


  1. Times like these makes me really really jealous and wish I lived in the States!!! >,<


  2. ^ I totally agree with the commenter above me! (:

  3. I have a few questions/requests, R.

    - If possible, please add the price on the products you found, just give me an idea how cheap/expensive they are
    - Are the Jesse's Girl baked shadows similar to the ones in the Color My World colection?
    - What's that shade of Milani single that you said is the UD Midnight Oowboy dupe?

    Thanks a bunch

  4. I would love to know how well the Physician Formula works. I have sensitive eyes and a lot of products burn my eye area. If not, thanks for giving us the heads up on the newest products! ;D

  5. I love when you post pictures of the display! Makes it much easier for me if I need to go searching for them. I'd love to see you something from that Prestige display. I think I am starting to really like that brand!

  6. Hey Fay and Arezu! I'm sorry that you might not see these for a while, but hopefully it won't take *too* long for them to reach you! :)

    Halifax! Thank you for all the great feedback. Usually if I'm taking pics in the stores, I have to do it quickly and although I try to get the prices in the shot (about half of the pics in the post do show the prices--just click on the image to see them) sometimes I just can't manage to do it. And because I'm taking so many pics, I can't memorize the prices on each item. But I will definitely try to be better about getting the prices into the pics! Regarding the Jesse's Girl Baked Shadows, yes, I do think they're VERY similar to the Color My World collection. The only thing that seems to be different is the packaging, but the texture of the shadows looks extremely similar. I wish I stopped to see the name of the Milani UD Midnight Cowboy dupe! I will try to go back next week and find out for you! :)

    Internationally Beautiful: I am very curious about this line as well. But $9.99 is pretty steep for these products so I will wait for a good sale and try to pick some up for review. Thanks so much for the comment! :)

    Anon: Thank you so much! Let me tell you that since I am so loving Prestige right now, I actually purchased one of the blushes, which I will review in the near future. :)

  7. You know I am holding my breath to hear your analysis of the EOS balm ;) Let's see if we really ARE sisters from another mother!


  8. Thanks for the updates! Though they really have me itching to buy new stuff when I don't have the money for it, haha! :)

    The Milani shadows definitely look like old colors in a new display to me, but I can't be sure without seeing them in person.

  9. The Rite Aids by me are so lame compared to your. One used to be an Eckerds (& I loved it) and since RA took over, the cosmetics aisle has been almost bare. Hopefully they're finally fixing that, since I just saw they put in a whole Jesse's Girl section. :fingers crossed:

    Thanks for the great pics of diplays of new stuff. Can't wait to see them in person.

  10. Hey Amber! I think we are related. That's all I'm gonna say for now. :)

    JennBee! Sorry to tempt you. lol. Thank you for confirming that this is probably an old color in a new display (I had a hunch). :)

    auroragyps! I'm sorry your Rite-Aids are lacking in the beauty dept. That sucks. :( There are a couple of CVS stores in my area that are like that--completely barren and they NEVER have anything new. But I've found that if I go a town or two over, I sometimes hit a goldmine at other CVS locations. Might be worth a try. :)

  11. I live in the States & I don't even get some of the stuff here - like the Prestige baked stuff or the Milani bronzers.

  12. Hey ndoodles! I'm sorry that you're not seeing these products in your area. :( Like I mentioned above, sometimes it makes a world of difference if you travel one or two towns over and check out the drugstores outside of your immediate area. That's what I do when I can't find something and I always stumble across new products that I never, ever see at the drugstore closest to me. Hope that helps! :)

  13. Great post! I am going to put this one up on my blog and link to it - I've had some people email asking what's new at the drug stores, and you have done a fantastic job wrapping all of it up!!

  14. Hey Meredith! Wow, thank you soooo much!! You know I'm a huge fan of your blog so this is a real honor! Thanks again! :)

  15. Did you see L'oreal's HIP Color Chrome Eyeliners?? I picked up 2 different colors, the Violet and Green one. I love them! They're (IMO) comparable to UD 24/7. However, these ones don't crumble, and they stay put on my waterline, as well as when I tightline. They're a bit pricey at 10, but much lower than UD. Just thought you'd want to know!

  16. Lol! Disregard my last post! So sorry!

  17. Hey Sera! lol! Yeah, I did a review of the green one and it ran and smudged like crazy on my eyes. BUT, I am so glad to hear that it works for you! In fact, I am jealous because the color it sooo pretty. I wish it stayed put on my eyes for more than an hour. :( Thanks for the comments!
