New at the Drugstore: Physician's Formula Cruelty Free Spring Line Up

Continuing along our journey of all things new and cruelty free at the drugstore, today we have come to Physician’s Formula! Most of the new items are additions to their existing lines: Super CC, Super BB, Shimmer Strips, Organic Wear, Nude Wear, Mineral Wear, Eye Booster, Argan Wear and Bronze Booster, plus another new bronzer. Given that these are mainly additions to existing lines, I feel like there is nothing revolutionary and I didn’t actually purchase much from the new releases. The prices always make me a bit more choosy as well! J Definitely look for coupons (often on the boxes of new products) and sales whenever purchasing from Physician’s Formula. I apologize that most of my pictures are just the products on store shelves and I probably can’t give much of an opinion about most of them. I still wanted to do a brief roundup of what is coming out though, so here we go! Take a deep breath ‘cause there is a lot! J

A New Superhero? IT Cosmetics' New Superhero Mascara

It Cosmetics released a new mascara and since I’m a sucker for mascara, I had to give a try! It is called the Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara and comes with quite the claims. “96% said lashes look stretched,” “96% saw dramatic volume & length,” “96% saw plumper looking lashes,” and “100% saw a fuller lash line.” As with most IT products, it’s also loaded with good for you ingredients – peptides, proteins, biotin, collagen and “lash-lifting polymers.” It is also paraben free, Opthamologist tested and suitable for contact lens wearers. Thank you for the interesting claims, but we just want to know how does it really perform? J Well, let’s go through the basics and see if we agree with these superhero-worthy claims!

#ManiMonday - Nuance's "Lush Lavender"

Happy #ManiMonday everyone!!! Somehow I managed to find just the shade I was after this week – a shade I didn’t even realize I owned. In fact, I kept debating buying it every time I went to CVS but never pulled the trigger. Good thing since I already had it! It is from Nuance and it is the shade “Lush Lavender.” I only have a couple polishes from Nuance, which is Salma Hayek’s line exclusive to CVS, and this is the first pastel shade I’ve tried. It applied so well! It is a soft lavender shade that is the kind of color that often ends up a streaky mess. Not so for “Lush Lavender!” Even with one coat this polish looked pretty good. I needed a second for completely even coverage, but it was anything but streaky! So, so happy with the formula and the shade on this one! Absolute perfection and exactly the color I envisioned in my head! J

Briefly on the personal side, my family finally celebrated Christmas this past weekend…well, it might be more like celebrating gift giving, but you get the idea. It was actually kind of nice to delay it so long because no one remembered what gifts they had purchased! J We had to delay everything due to unexpected personal stuff but everything is on the upswing for the moment. It was really nice to just hang around and relax with my family for a while. Barclay (my dog) had a blast because he absolutely loves unwrapping presents. He doesn’t care who they’re for. Only problem with that is he gets upset when too much time passes without a present that’s his! I think he was pleased this year though. J As for my cats, they don’t really get the whole thing. They are cats after all. However, this year they got a Snacky Snowman, which is just a little treat dispenser wobble toy and it was a huge hit! I made the mistake of filling it pretty full, and Emerson managed to get all the treats out, eat them and promptly throw them up. Lovely times! J It was a great weekend, but now the week must go on. With that, I wish you all a fantastic week and I should have another post up on Wednesday! As always, thanks for stopping by! J
