New and Notable at Shoppers Drug Mart - L'Oréal, Marcelle, Maybelline, Olay and Almay!

L'Oréal Color Infaillible Eye Shadow - $12.49 - in 11 shades: Time Resist White, Burning Black, Purple Obsession, Forever Pink, Hourglass Beige, Flashback Silver, Permanent Kaki, Unlimited Sky, All Night Blue, Endless Chocolat and Eternal Black - with a formulation that lies between a powder and a cream it contains 4 times more binder than a classic powder eye shadow to make it super soft and velvety and to coat the pigment to create a "magnifying Glass" effect that enhances and heightens colour.  It has long lasting hold (24 hours) and resists blinks, rubbing and water.  I love how vibrant the colours look on the model pics so I will be trying this one out!

Marcelle Bronzing Pressed Powder for Eye, Face and Body - 16.9g - $17.95 - Sun Dune - the picture doesn't do justice to how big this sucker is! This will be enough bronzer to last you all summer!

Maybelline ColorSensational The Shine Lipcolor - $11.49 - in 10 shades: 805 Pink Freeze, 810 Disco Pink, 815 Glisten Up Pink, 820 Mauvilous Shine, 825 Fruit Punch, 830 Plum Shine, 835 Dazzling Plum, 840 Coral Lustre, 845 Nude Glow, 850 Lacquered Brown - if you've been missing your Maybelline Wet Shine lipstick from days gone by like I have, this seems like it would be a good substitute!

Olay Body Rituals collection - Silk Whimsy - contains delicate rose extract and almond oil with a fragrance that has top notes of citrus, melon and crisp wet greens; mid notes of rose, jasmine, ozone and freesia; and base notes of amber, sandalwood, vanilla and musk.  The collection contains:  Moisturizing Body Wash - 295ml - $8.99, Cleansing Body Wash - 354ml - $9.99, Body Bar - $5.99 (this is an Erin the Soap Guy's fave, review of it coming soon) and Body Lotion - 250ml - $6.99 - 350ml - $8.99
Almay Oil Free Makeup Eraser Sticks - $7.99 for 24 - from reading the back of the package I gather that you snap off one end and the remover flows into the cotton tip on the other end which begs the question, why would I pay $8 for 24 q-tips when I could just dip a q-tip into remover for the exact same result?  If someone has used these and can explain the difference that would be great!

  1. I'm really enjoying the Maybelline ColorSensational The Shine Lipcolor. I bought it in shades Pink Freeze and Mauvilous Shine and have been using them non-stop!

  2. I swatched those L'Oreal shadows in Walmart yesterday. They are insanely smooth! :)

  3. the l'oreal shadows and marcelle bronzer looks amazing! i'm actually asking my boyfriend to pick up the bronzer for me since he lives in canada and i don't lol. the maybelline lippies are actually quite good! i purchased one a few weeks ago and it can go on pretty sheer, but it's ssuper easy to build up coverage!

  4. The cotton swabs are great for travel and especially handy if you don't want to carry a remover separately... those airline restrictions are brutal for us makeup junkies!
