New Drugstore Makeup 2019 – Summer
Available in 3 shades – (L-R) Creative Cleanse, Detox Me, Do Me Right
“Each portable stick gives you that post-workout flush-minus the sweat! The fresh-looking color glides and blends easily onto cheeks or lips for a diffused glow that leaves skin hydrated for up to 8 hours. The refreshing formula is infused with aloe and cucumber extracts leaving skin feeling fresh.”
Perfect for no-makeup days when you want to just add a quick hint of color to your cheeks!
Available in 6 shades – Pale Light, True Beige Buff, Beige Camel, Cinnamon Mahogany, Deep Mocha, Deep Espresso
“A lightweight tinted cream with a seamless, satiny finish to help you achieve the ultimate fresh faced no makeup makeup look. Simply smooth this weightless formula onto the complexion for light, breathable coverage. Each flexible hue feels like a second skin and delivers up to 8 hours of hydration. A hydrating, creamy formula that never feels heavy or cakey. This noncomedogenic formula is infused with aloe and cucumber extracts.”
Sounds like a great tinted moisturizer/BB cream type of product that will provide light coverage and keep you moisturized, perfect to create a “no-makeup” makeup look!
“This water-based gel primer hydrates the complexion and softens the appearance of pores for a bright, fresh-looking glow. NYX Professional Makeup's first primer that provides hydration for up to 8 hours, while also softening the appearance of pores. This water-based formula creates an even base for smooth makeup application to help you achieve the ultimate fresh faced no makeup makeup look.”
This just looks too interesting not to try! A water-based formula is great for summer when oil production in our skin is usually at its peak!
Available in 6 shades – Lets Glaze, Brunch Drunk, Sparkling Please, Cheap Fills, New Money, Major Mouthage
“Featuring a slightly arched applicator, this luxurious lippie cuddles up to your kisser as you swipe. This plumping lip polish covers lips in a glowy shine while making them look plump, smooth and absolutely beauti-full. Each shade minimizes the appearance of lines and refuses to feather.”
Plump, glossy lips are perfect for summer! I haven’t tried a lip plumper yet, but I just may have to give these a go! Also, how funny are those shade names?!
Available in 4 shades – The Golden One (golden tan), Sunset Vibes (warm amber), The OC (warm auburn), Beach Bum (bronzed sienna); pictured is The Golden One
“This jumbo bronzer is designed to be dusted all over the face and body. Featuring a creamy texture, our all-over powder bronzer with soft pearls delivers a warm faux glow with a flattering satin finish. The super blendable formula is perf for contouring or creating an airbrushed, second-skin effect, no more patchy spots!”
Now this is exactly the type of product I think of when I think about summer! A glowy bronzer that will make you feel like a golden goddess!
Available in 2 color schemes – Magnetic Pull (left) and Limit Love (right)
“From mixed metals to gem tones, this pressed pigment palette comes in two gleaming assortments that are sure to catch your eye. Each vibrant set is filled with six crazy-pearly colors that are shockingly creamy to the touch. Blending or building these rich metallics to create intensely foiled eye, face or body art is a breeze.”
I LOVE the foiled look on eyes so this palette is right up my alley. Both palettes look so gorgeous, I don’t think I can choose between the two!
“Get the pumped up punk royal look with +112% soft, fanned out volume for the lushest, thickest lashes ever with the Warrior Princess Mascara by FLOWER Beauty! This exclusive Royal Hourglass Brush coats every lash for silky, luscious lashes fit for a princess. One coveted shade, rich and hyperpigmented sets a new standard in darkness.”
I’m always on the hunt for great voluminizing mascaras and the brush shape looks super similar to the L’Oreal Lash Paradise mascara, which I love!
Available in 2 shades – Sunrise, Sunswept; pictured is Sunrise
“Our marbleized formula blends effortlessly for a warm, luminous look. Matte and shimmering powders swirl together for a lit-from-within ambient glow.”
Based on that description, do we maybe have an Hourglass Ambient Bronzer dupe on our hands?!
Available in 4 shades – White Gold, Rose Gold, 24K Gold, Bronze Gold; pictured is White Gold
“First there was glow, then there was dewy, now there's flare. Get multidimensional, high-luster glow with e.l.f. Cosmetics Metallic Powder Flare Highlighter. This buttery soft, high shimmer formula glides onto the skin for the ultimate highlight.”
This highlighter actually isn’t super new as I got it a few months ago, but I didn’t mention it in my Spring version of new drugstore makeup, so I had to mention it here!
Just like the elf baked highlighters, you have to work your way through the tough top layer to get the full potential of this highlighter. But, once you do, it’s gorgeous!
Available in 4 shades – Rose Quartz, Clear Quartz, Jade, Amethyst; pictured is Rose Quartz
“Channel the energy of your choice with the Crystal Cavern™ Mega-Glo™ Lip Gloss, an ultra-shiny formula that glides on smooth for long-lasting and comfortable wear. Available in four crystal-inspired shades; this pearl pigment-infused gloss delivers moisture and nourishment to the lips through the infusion of Vitamin E, Sunflower Seed and Argan Oil.”
I absolutely love the crystal inspiration for this super shiny gloss! Glossy lips are definitely the way to go this summer!
Available in 1 shade – Crystal High
“Take your look from tranquil to mesmerizing in seconds with the Crystal Cavern™ Mega Glo™ Highlighter, a bouncy pressed powder that helps you achieve a glossy and luminous glow. Its buttery and buildable formula melts onto the skin for a weightless feel and effortlessly blended application. The micro-fine pearls of the highlighter’s formula create a multi-dimensional, light-catching effect while the infusion of Vitamin E, Murumuru Seed Butter, Shea Butter and Argan Oil work to moisturize and nourish the skin.”
UMM HELLO NEW MEGAGLO HIGHLIGHTER. The Mega Glo Highlighters are hands-down one of the best highlighters at the drugstore for a bright, blinding highlight. And this one looks no different! I absolutely love the shade and will definitely be picking this one up!
Available in 1 shade – Infinity Stones
“These crystal-shaped rocks of brightening powder are made of light-diffusing pearls that work to minimize flaws and add brightness to the skin. Each rock shade provides a specific correcting action; all together they work to minimize dark spots & circles, brighten, neutralize redness and cancel out dullness for an irresistible glow!
Each rock shade has a specific correcting action:
When I first saw this, I thought it was a highlighter, similar to the Becca and Khloe Kardashian Glow Letters, but it’s a finishing powder! I love the concept of having different shades in it for color correcting!
Available in 4 color schemes – Clear Quartz, Rose Quartz, Amethyst, Jade; pictured is Rose Quartz
“Artfully presented in portable pyramid palettes, each of these collectible eyeshadow trios features three highly pigmented crystal-inspired shades formulated to create a silky, smooth and duo-chrome texture that lasts all day!”
How cute are these little eyeshadow trios?! Perfect for a super simple look!
Available in 3 new shades – Desert Heat, Electric Forest, Cosmic Meadow; pictured is Desert Heat
“Get festival ready with Milani's limited-edition collection of high-impact, Hypnotic Lights Holographic Eye Topper. Lightweight, water-based formula dries quickly for an eye-catching prismatic effect with minimal fallout. Layer on top of eye shadow for a gorgeous prismatic effect or wear alone for a glittery, metallic wash of color.”
Three new shades to Milani’s gorgeous Hypnotic Lights Eye Topper collection and they are stunning!! Definitely buying these because I love my glitter!
Available in 3 shades – Moon Glow, Wanderlust, Pixie Dust; pictured is Moon Glow
“Turn up the energy with our Festival Collection. This multi-dimensional high-shine gloss packs a glittering punch with duochrome pearls and a cushiony-soft texture. Available in 3 new shades.”
I’m not really one to wear glittery lip gloss on a regular basis, but these are IT for a festival, just like the name of the collection suggests.
“Get set to be spellbound by our enchanting eyeshadow palette, created with YouTuber and makeup artist @CarmiMua.
Marking our second collaboration with the YouTuber, this supernatural set is packed with 20 captivating shimmer and matte shades, embossed with his signature heart logo. From ‘Under My Spell’, a metallic icy blue, to ‘Free Hugs’, a pretty dusky rose, this set of soft and statement hues is sure to have you hypnotised.”
One word to describe this palette: STUNNING. Such a great colorful palette for summer!
17. Makeup Revolution – Forever Flawless Palettes
Available in 2 color schemes – Decadent (top), Optimum (bottom)
“Designed for those who like the finer things in life, Makeup Revolution's Forever Flawless Decadent Eyeshadow Palette features 18 rich shadows in matte and shimmer finishes. From "Fortuity", a warm reddish brown, to "Plush", a lavish burnished copper, each shade will make you feel more spoilt than the last.”
“Ideal for those who strive to achieve the best, Makeup Revolution's Forever Flawless Optimum Eyeshadow Palette features 18 ultimate shadows in matte and shimmer finishes. From "Warrior", a shimmering khaki, to "Maximum", an intense navy, each shade will make you more empowered than the last.”
Makeup Revolution makes GREAT eyeshadows for a super affordable price and I’m in love with both of the color schemes in these palettes. The Optimum Palette kind of reminds me of Urban Decay’s Born to Run Palette. There are definitely some similar shades!
18. Makeup Revolution – Primers
Available in 4 types – Mattify, Pore Blur, Hydrate, Colour Correct
“If you want to control your glow, use Makeup Revolution's Mattify Primer as your base and add highlighter to the areas of your face you want radiance. Contains antioxidant-rich Vitamin E to help nourish your skin.”
"Reduce and minimize the appearance of pores with Makeup Revolution's Pore Blur Primer. This is your answer to a poreless and smoother looking base. Apply the silky gel formula to the face after moisturizing and before foundation. The peach primer will blur the appearance of pores and set makeup in place all day. Contains antioxidant-rich Vitamin E to help nourish your skin.”
“This primer is the perfect skin pick me up. Makeup Revolution's Hydrate Primer is a fast-absorbing, lightweight water-based primer that will inject your skin with Vitamin E and Hyaluronate Acid to instantly hydrate skin.”
“Makeup Revolution's Colour Correct Primer features a green liquid formula, that helps to balance and neutralize any red tones, resulting in a neutral base for makeup application. Contains Vitamin B3, known for its multi-tasking skin benefits, including reduction in wrinkles, uneven skin tone, acne and hyperpigmentation.”
The color correcting one is speaking to me. I’ve used green primers before and I remember loving it!
“Unbelievable colour payoff in just one swipe! The intensity of these eyeshadows lies in its extraordinary formula, in which the pigment is poured, not pressed. Each pan offers an gorgeous creamy texture that transforms into a silky powder for an incredible high-shine finish. From bronze to burgundy, plum to khaki, this kit is brimming with 15 rich shades that truly pack a punch.”
As I mentioned earlier, I LOVE the foiled look on eyes and for only $15, you get 15 gorgeous shades!
“Prepare to bring the party with this ultra-vibrant eyeshadow palette, created with content creator Tammi Clarke @makeupbytammi. Marking our second collaboration with the YouTuber, this electric-hued set is packed with 18 striking matte and shimmer shades. From ‘Calypso’, a metallic chartreuse yellow, to ‘Bacchanal’, an intense ocean-blue, these hot hues are well worth celebrating.”
