Today I wanted to share with you a really great beauty find I discovered at CVS! Its a lip gloss made by Physicians Formula. This is a cosmetic line I was not particularly familiar with until recently. At CVS they carry it on an end-cap (short end of the aisle) and, in case you shop at Walgreens just know they don’t carry this line at all. I originally went to CVS looking for some concealer that was mentioned by another blogger who I am loving these days (more on that in a sec..) and while they didn’t have the concealer I did stumble across this super lip gloss.
Its called pH Matchmaker/pH Powered Lip Gloss. The box says it instantly matches you in 60 seconds. And boy does it! I was really impressed with the nice pink color it gave my lips. I didn’t even need a liner or “base” color underneath. It wasn’t tacky or overly sticky and it had some pretty good staying power too! The CVS closest to me only carried one color choice – light pink – which I love. But, at another CVS I found two other colors – a peach and a darker pink which I have yet to try but am planning on it.
Another aspect I adore is that the little tube comes with not only a mirror which is so handy for on-the-go touch ups but also a light! So clever! The gloss is $9.99 but of course you can get it cheaper if you can remember to use your CVS bucks Since finding the gloss I have also purchased some eyeliner as well as concealer from the same Physicians Formula line. I’m curious to see how these products rate – and will keep you all posted.
Earlier I mentioned that another blogger was the one who originally got me headed to CVS for beauty products. That was Emily Eddington over at BeautyBroadcast.net. I started following her about 4 months ago and she has great information and some really helpful videos and product reviews. You can check her out at www.Beautybroadcast.net or on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/emilynoel83. I am making my way through her videos now and I love how she works with alot of the more affordable lines as well as some of the more pricey “luxury” brands. Check out her site and her YouTube channel – but beware you’ll be sucked into the vortex of beauty for hours!
