Trend Tuesday // Top 5 New at the Drugstore

Spring has definitely sprung here in NW Indiana.  I know I said that before and then it snowed that same day....but I promise...there should be no snow until like October.  So I'm good for a few more months.  I am so happy to come out of the Winter months.  My skin is still a bit dry though and I can not take it.  I'm still using the Aveno Daily Moisturizing Lotion mentioned in this post but I'm waiting for the day that it is so hot and my skin gets so oily all my make up seems to slide off.  Sometimes there's a little learning curve when you're coming out of or going into new seasons!
I've picked up some new make up over the past 2 months but I've just now gotten back into using it.  I've really just been doing concealer and a bit of powder (gasp!).  Coming from a full coverage gal...that's big.  I'll be sharing my fave quick concealers in another post, but here are my current top five favorites that are new at the drugstore:
I love the colors in the L'Oreal La Palette Nude.  Honestly, this is what I want in a drugstore palette (cue reviews of the Maybelline The Nudes Palette and The Smokes Palette).  The colors are great and they have a great shade range - meaning they don't blend together and each color has individual characteristics.  There is a matte light mauve/brown shade (third from the left) that really gets me.  That's my type of shade!!

Also the full coverage of the L'Oreal Pro Matte foundation rocks my world.  The two shades I have are 101 & 102 and I know I'll be mixing them to get my perfect shade when I hopefully start to get a little more tan.  But I've been loving the minimal blemish-only-coverage the NYX concealer palette gives.  The concealers blend nicely and I don't feel like I just have bits of concealer.  For bright as hell highlighting you should definitely check out the Wet n Wild Come Correct concealer.  The lighter shade is BAM highlighted but the texture reminds me of the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye so the coverage and staying power is awesome.
Finally, I love the simplicity of the Wet n Wild Velvet Matte Lip Colors too.  At first I really didn't like the shade Pinky Candy (all the way at the right there) because I thought it didn't show up well...but now that we're in the Springtime months I think I'll like the subtle pink more.  They apply so smoothly and last pretty long but the packaging isn't that great.  The product will fall out of the tube...so don't turn it upside down!

I can't wait to get into the Summer time make up now too!

Have you brought out your warm weather make up?  Any new favorites that you have?

xoxo, Moe.
