3 First Impressions

The other day I decided to take a trip to my local CVS to check out what new drugstore makeup they had. Plus I kept getting emails that I had some great coupons on my CVS card. The trip did not disappoint! I picked up three items Rimmel's Stay Matte Foundation, Physician's Formula's CC cream, and the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Matte Brown. Oddly, I ended up with two face products that are totally different.

This might be my new favorite drugstore foundation. I have been trying it out over the last week and it holds up well. It has lasted in fairly good shape for an 8 hour shift at work. The finish is definitely medium to full coverage matte. It blends in well with my Real Techniques buffing brush. However, this is not an "invisible foundation" you definitely feel like your wearing a foundation.

This is my first CC cream. I love that this one from Physicians Formula is 100% organic and has sun screen in it. The coverage is pretty amazing. It is a great everyday product when you do not want full coverage. Also unlike the Rimmel foundation the CC cream does not feel heavy on my skin. I went into CVS not thinking I would pick this up at all. However, my CVS was doing 40% off all the Physicians Formula products and this CC cream had a $3 off coupon attached to it. So I basically got the CC cream for $3.99. Pretty awesome! I kind of feel like I should go back and get another. 

Lastly, I picked up another Color Tattoo. I love them. Hopefully one day Maybelline will come out with a bunch of permanent matte colors. This is the Matte Brown shade that was released for limited edition quite a while ago. My CVS still had a bunch of them. This is great to use for my crease and is incredibly long wearing. 

What have you picked up lately? I was looking for the new Rimmel bb cream originally.When I found all of this. I would love some recommendations.

  1. What I've been super into is MAC's fast response eye cream. I have puffy eyes plus dark circles and this treats them like BAM! See more of what I'm into recently:
