Spotted at CVS: New Cover Girl #HOTSTUFF Collection: Lip Lava and Outlas Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss

Remember the good old days when CVS and Walgreens  used to put their new products front and center during the holidays?  Now, they are at the top of the shelves, above my height (I'm 5'9") and I usually miss a majority of them until the holidays are over and stocking-stuffing season has passed!  

Lucky me, I was actually able to reach a new display from Covergirl, featuring their new Lip Lavas and Outlast Stay Brilliant nail colors.  This collection features all duochrome colors, in rich gemstone hues.  I picked up the green and blue nail color and will swatch them in the upcoming weeks.  I am tempted to go try some of the new lippies, as well - absolutely gorgeous shades.  Have you seen these yet?

More pictures below of the display, which I spotted at my local CVS.

Smokey Silver Holiday FOTD: L'Oreal Infalllible Eyeshadow in Liquid Diamond, Urban Decay Blackout and Mary Kate & Ashley Shimmer Dust in Sparkling Night

Today on the blog, a silver-smokey holiday look.  This one is actually quite easy to do, and uses L'Oreal Infallible eyeshadow in Liquid Diamond and a black matte eyeshadow (I used Urban Decay in Black Out).  Add a pop of glitter to the center of the lid, some matte red lips, and you are ready to hit the holiday scene!

Here is what I am wearing:

Laura Geller Spackle Primer - all over face
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye concealer 
Bare Escentuals Mineral Foundation in Fair (original formula)
Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil
Mally Beauty Bronzer (light) - cheek bones

NYX HD Eyeshadow Primer - all over lid
Urban Decay Naked2 Pallet - Tease - upper crease
Urban Decay Naked2 Pallet - Blackout - crease and outer corner of lid
L'Oreal Infallible in Liquid Diamond - inner corner, blended into UD Blackout in middle of lid
MAC Vanilla Pigment - highlight
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy - middle of lid
Mary Kate & Ashley Sequin Shimmer Dust - Sparkling Night - middle of lid

FOTD w/ Urban Decay Naked Pallet, Wet 'n Wild LE Pallet in Daring Downtown, Loreal Infallible in Gold Imperial, and Jordana Color Effects Eyeshadow in Green

Playing around with green and gold today.  One of my favorite drugstore greens is Jordana Color Effects Eyeshadow in Green, which is truly one of the "greenest" eyeshadows I own.  It wears like iron when over a primer, and has a nice brightening shimmer. I love finding little gems like these in the drug store!

For the look, here is what I used:

Laura Geller Spackle
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer - Light
Laura Geller Balance 'n Brighten - Fair

Urban Decay Primer Potion
Urban Decay Naked Pallet - Buck - blended into crease
Wet 'n Wild LE Pallet in Daring Downtown (Black shade) - cut crease blended into Buck
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy - lid (not above crease)
Jordana Green - lid / lower lashline
Loreal Infallible "Gold Imperial" - inner corner
Urban Decay Naked Pallet - Sin - lightly blended into highlight
Physicians Formula Gel Eyeliner - black
Younique 3D Moodstruck Fiber lashes - mascara

I almost forgot I found this lovely Wet 'n Wild on sale for 50% off during the CVS Beauty sale, which is what I am wearing in the pic above.

Swatches: L'Oreal Infallable Eye Crayons

After falling in love with the L'Oreal Infallible eyeshadows, I was very excited to see some new additions to the Infallable line with the Eye Crayons.  There are several colors available - if you haven't seen them head over to Nouveau Cheap and check them out - but I picked up two of the basic colors: Forever Taupe and Midnight Charcoal.

I don't have any EOTD's or FOTD's to show you yet, as I have been testing this out various different ways, but so far so good!  I have not experienced any budging or smearing, particularly when worn on my lower lashline, which is an added plus!

Below are some swatches, just so you can see the colors.  Have you tried these yet?

An Emerald Green FOTD w/ Hard Candy Space Cadet, Aromaleigh Spectacularly Ignorant, and Urban Decay Naked2 Pallet

Taking a step away from my "neutral" rut I've been in recently, I decided to play matchy-matchy with my shirt and wear a rich emerald green smokey eye.  To do this, I am using an old shadow I dug up - Hard Candy Meteorite Shadow in Space Cadet (a rich emerald frost with emerald glitter), as well as Aromaleigh Spectacularly Ignorant and Urban Decay Naked2 Pallet.  

For the look, here is how I did it:

Laura Geller Spackle
Laura Geller Balance 'n Brighten in Fair
Laura Geller Balance 'n Bronze - contour
Laura Geller Blush 'n Brighten in Golden Apricot - blush

Urban Decay Naked2 Pallet - Tease - upper crease
Urban Decay Naked2 Pallet - Blackout - crease, outer corner
Hard Candy Space Cadet - all over lid / on top of Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Aromaleigh Spectacularly Ignorant - inner corner, lower lashline - on top of Pixie Epoxy
Urban Decay Naked2 Pallet - Foxy - highlight

NYX Lipstick Thalia

NYX Thalia 50% off at CVS Beauty Sale - Swatches

I love a good sale...I mean, who doesn't!?  CVS is having their annual Beauty Sale, and typically I am not running towards any particular brand.  This all changed with the addition of NYX to the CVS set, and there were a couple of items that I had to have, especially since they were marked down by 50%.  One was my beloved black eyeliner in Bewitching Betty, and the other was this lipstick - Thalia.  I had this originally years ago and used it up, so finding it for 50% off (about $2 when all said and done) made me a happy girl!  

Closeup of Thalia below.  

Thalia on - this definitely takes on a bit darker of a tone when applied (on me at least), but I love this as a go-to shade any day.  

What items are you snagging at the CVS Beauty sale?  There were only two brands with actual stickers at my local store, so I think they are just now getting around to tagging and marking.  I will go back in this weekend and see what else there is to pick up - perfect for stocking stuffers!
