I can’t tell you guys the last time that I’ve actually purchased makeup. Especially drugstore makeup. I’m constantly receiving products for review. And I have more makeup than I’d use in this lifetime. Although I’m always receiving stuff for review, I rarely receive products from drugstore brands. So that’s why I barely ever review drugstore makeup. The brands usually don’t send it, and I have no need to buy it. I only spend my coins if it’s something that I absolutely
NEED want to try really bad. But this year more drugstore beauty brands have been sending over products for review consideration. Here’s some of the goodies that I received that you should keep on your radar this Spring. Starting with the limited edition Revlon Color Charge Collection…
1. Revlon Color Charge Violet Rush Matte Superlustrous Lipstick
Moisturizing matte with micro-fine pigments for high impact color. Violet Rush is right on trend since Ultra Violet is the Pantone Color of the year. The lipstick is available in 9 more shades.
2. Revlon Color Charge High Fever Lip Powder Palette
5 metallic shades of lip powder to dramatize your lip look. Super moisturizing and would look great paired with the Violet Rush Matte Superlustrous lipstick. Try the powders on your eyes as well for a gorgeous Spring look. Also available in Peach Pucker.

3. Revlon Color Charge Color Collage Shadow Palette
10 bold shades and finishes for endless looks. This palette doesn’t have the best pigmentation. I had to swatch each shade a few times. But it’s great if you want to try bright lids this Spring for the low.
4. Revlon Color Charge Halo Liquid Illuminator
Use as a spot highlighter over makeup. Or mix with your foundation for a subtle glow.
5. Revlon Color Charge Holographic Loose Pigment
Holographic makeup will be big this spring. Use the Holo pigment to highlight your eyes. Or go bold and use it to highlight your cheekbones. Available in 5 shades.

Thanks for the swatches! i am going to check out that sunkissed highlighter
You’re welcome. Let me know how you like it if you do!
I am not into drugstore makeup anymore…but there are a few items that are drugstore Holy Grails for me…the Milani eye tech liner in blackest black…..NYX butter glosses, and NYX intense butter glosses.
I’m not really into drugstore makeup either as I feel some of the products are too expensive, yet lacking quality. For the price you might as well go high end. For mascara though I’ll prob always choose drugstore since it has to be tossed so frequently.
Ever and always drug store if I can manage it. The budget just won’t allow for more than that and since I like out of the box colors, I tend to shop indie brands far more frequently than high end. But indie often doesn’t cover a good gamut for deeper complexions when it comes to foundations, blushes and highlighters so I’ll find myself standing yet again, before the aisles in my local CVS/Walgreens/Rite-Aid/etc if only because of their return policy on cosmetics. I do enjoy your reviews of products because you seem to be my foundation twin and like me, have semi hooded lids so there’s typically a plethora of info on makeup looks and foundation recommendations which leave me feeling confident in a product.
I just personally can’t see spending more than $20 on a foundation. It’s weird but that’s just a sentiment held. ^_^
