Spotted: NEW Maybelline Colorblur Cream Matte Lip Pencils (Pics and a Swatch)

More new Maybelline lip products! In this post, I'll be showing you the brand new Colorblur Matte Lip Pencils, thanks to two lovely readers who both spotted this display at Walmart this week.

First up, longtime reader Miranda Turner shared these pics of the display:

These pencils contain a twist-up color on one end, and a smudger on the other end.So you can apply these for a more opaque, bold look, or smudge them out for a softer look. I find it interesting that the model is wearing a look that's been quite popular in Japan and Korea for a while now (ombre/gradient lips that are vivid in the center but almost non-existent near the lip line). It's nice to see this trend hitting the mainstream, mass-market US drugstore level.

More pics and info after the jump...

Review: Jordana Cat Eye Liners (All Shades)

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Jordana and Milani (sister company to Jordana) eyeliners. I have praised their eyeliners here on the blog for years and years, so I was really excited to try this new line when I received it from Jordana. I've been testing these liners for a few weeks now and today I'm ready to give you my verdict. Do they live up to all of the other Jordana/Milani liners we know and love? Keep reading to find out...

The New Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipstick Shades Have Landed

Many thanks to longtime reader Miranda Turner for this one!

The ten new Colorsensational Creamy Matte shades have landed at Walmart! Miranda spotted them at her local Walmart on Monday, so it looks like they're landing there first (I haven't heard from anyone yet who has spotted them elsewhere). 

I just checked the Walmart website and, as of the time of this post, they do not have these ten new shades listed, so it looks like these are just in-store...for now.

Thanks so much, Miranda, for the great tip!

CVS Beauty Clearance Sale Master List Update

Just in case you're new to the semi-annual CVS Beauty Clearance Sale, I don't usually do a blog post every time I update the master list with new sightings, but I DO time-stamp the list so that you'll know exactly when new items have been added. That said, I just did a pretty big update and you can click HERE to view the master list (lots of new items and shades added!).

Thanks so much to everyone who has contributed to this list so far, and please keep the sightings coming! I really appreciate all the help this time of year. Your tips are helping so many of us save money on our beauty purchases!

The Simple Multi-Benefit Cleansing Oil Has (Finally!) Landed

It's here! It's here! Remember way back in January of 2014 when I posted a sneak peek at the new Simple cleansing oil? Well the release date got pushed from January 2014 to May 2014, but then May 2014 came and went and...nothing. I don't know why it took another year for this one to hit stores, but who cares because it's finally here!

Sonia Kashuk to Launch Skincare Line

I saw this on and wanted to share:

Even as a makeup artist, Sonia Kashuk is fully aware that without skin care, makeup doesn’t mean a thing. “To me, makeup isn’t going to look good unless your skin looks great,” said Kashuk. In August, she will embrace that mantra with her first range of skin care. “Because I was a makeup artist, the first foray [into product] was going to be color,” she noted. “But [skin care] is such an important aspect.” Exclusive to Target, the collection will consist of four stockkeeping units, Resurface Exfoliating Wash, $14.99, Renew Micro Exfoliating Toner, $14.99, and Detox Purifying Black Mask, $15.99. Additionally, the Dissolve Gel to Oil Makeup Removing Cleanser, $14.99, will launch in November. Kashuk added, “We’re staying true to the mission of ‘luxury doesn’t have to be a guilty pleasure.’”

I'm actually excited to try all of these products, but especially the Dissolve Gel to Oil Makeup Removing Cleanser. Too bad we have to wait until November for that one, but the rest of the line will be available at Target starting in August.
