New and Notable at Shoppers Drug Mart - La Roche-Posay, Nuxe, Almay and Revlon

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra - 40ml - $31 -  soothing skincare dedicated to allergic skin - contains only 15 ingredients - compared to the 30 found in most moisturizers including Neurosensine, a combination of two amino acids that sooth nerve endings, preventing a reducing sensitive skin reactions.  It is free of preservatives, parabens, fragrance, alcohol and lanolin. The packaging is air-tight so purity is guaranteed and there will be no oxidation.
Nuxe Nuxuriance Eyes & Lips - 15ml - $45 - contains 89% ingredients of natural origin and no paraben effective for all visible signs of aging on the contour of the eyes and lips: the eye contour is lifted, fine lines around the eyes are smoothed out and wrinkles are reduced, puffiness (natural caffeine), dark circles (maca root, corrector optical pigments) and pigmentary spots (bakau plant cells) are less apparent for luminous and more youthful eyes and the lip contour is redefined.  The cream itself is very light and not at all sticky and has the same lovely botanical type scent as the rest of the Nuxuriance line.
Almay Smart Shade Smart Balance Pressed Powder - $15.99 - instantly transforms into the ideal shade and has a skin balancing swirl formula contains microspheres to help keep your oily areas shine-free and dry areas softly hydrated. Interesting concept - I wonder how well it works - has anyone tried it?
Revlon ColorBurst Lipgloss - $11.49 - they are supposed to have 5X more shine than patent leather - not that I've ever had the desire to have leather lips but what do I know?!  They come in: Crystal Lilac, Pink Ice, Strawberry, Peony, Hot Pink, Orchid, Rosepearl, Rosegold, Bordeaux, Fire, Papaya, Sunset Peach, Gold Dust, Sienna Sparkle and Bronze Shimmer.

  1. Revlon ColorBurst Lipgloss - These are awesome! I have two so far and love them.

  2. I really need to try the colorburst lipgloss. I usually have about 4 lipglosses in my purse at any given moment.

  3. Mob mentality is setting in here and I'm feeling an overwhelming need for the lipgloss - it's on the shopping list!

    Best, Lisamarie

  4. I can't wait to try the lipglosses, I was eyeing them just today. The La Roche Posay moisturizer also sounds great, I think I'll have to drop by Shoppers.

  5. Great products! That lipgloss looks amazing!

  6. I love La Roche-Posay. I really am interested in that moisturizer!

  7. It seems like drugstore brands are becoming more and more expensive. Those glosses look really nice but I might as well be buying a MAC gloss at that price. Unless there is something super special about these besides just the shine.
