Halloween Makeup collections beginning to pop up at Rite Aid!

Ok, once again, before I even start, let me apologize for my absenteeism. We've been incredibly busy lately getting the boys ready to go back to school and trying to squeeze all the fun we can out of our last days of summer vacation. Once the boys start school again, you'll be hearing from me much more frequently. For now, just know that I appreciate all my awesome readers and all the wonderful comments you leave and even if I don't get a chance to always post responses, each line you drop makes my day!

Alrighty, so now that we got that out of the way, I have lots of pics of lots of exciting halloween sightings I came across today when I was in Rite Aid. Seems like these displays pop up earlier and earlier each year, but I kinda sorta LIVE AND DIE for ALLTHINGS Halloween, so I'm excited to see them despite the fact that it is no where near October.

OK, onto the pics! BTW, If you are a lover of red eyeshadows, you DEFINITELY want to keep reading.

First up, the annual Rite Aid  Blue Cross  pumpkin polishes are back! Lots of neon glow-in-the-dark offerings this year...I was disappointed that there were no awesome glitters this time around, but these polishes have a habit of varying widely from Rite Aid to Rite Aid so it is possible that this particular store only had these and there may be glittery pumpkin awesomeness to be had elsewhere. 


Next, we have some Fantasy Makers awesomeness. I LOVE me some Fantasy Makers--of course--because it is made by Wet N Wild and this year, they have these awesome eyeshadow/nail polish/lip stick/lashes look kits! Each "Wicked Look"  kit is $4.99.

Please forgive my awful cell phone pics. The kit in the upper left is called "Siren" and it includes a purple polish, a purple and blue eyeshadow duo, a mauve-looking lipstick and silver tinsel lashes. The upper right kit is "Vixen"--tomato red polish with a black and TRUE RED shadow duo (it appears to be the same red that has made appearances in past LE Wet N Wild shadow collections), tomato red lippie and more tinsel lashes. Bottom left is Temptress, which consists of a charcoal and bright pink shadow duo, a vampy red polish , vampy red lipstick and some long human hair-like lashes. Witch is the final kit here and this baby has a black and white shadow duo, a black polish and a black lipstick, plus some interesting clustered lashes. 

Now we all know how much Wet N Wild shadows rock, so I am very excited to see these shadow duos! Also, I couldn't help but notice that the lipsticks look like mini Mega-last lipsticks, the incredibly, deservedly popular new for 2012 lipstick formula that Wet N Wild released this year.



                                                           

Next to the "Wicked Look" kits, they had "Hauntingly Hip" kits that consist of heavily glittered cream shadow palettes and stencils. There's a devil kit that consists of reds, oranges & a grey  and some flame stencils; a butterfly kit that is more of a "brights" themed color palette, an angel kit which is an earth-toned palette and a swan kit that, other than the white shadow,  seems to be made of "jewel-toned" shades. 




Above is yet another Fantasy Makers offering--temporary hair color and colored mascaras.




Aaaaand even more Fantasy Makers--this time we have body glitters, glitter eyeliners and bottles of beautiful holographic glitter. Fantasy Maker fanatics like me will recognize that amazing little bottle of holo glitter--yep it is the same one they offered last year and I am SO glad to see it as I wasted my bottle last year in a horribly botched frankenpolish attempt. Now I can get a replacement and back-ups!!





OK, lets move onto our New York Color section of this post (these "spotted" posts always end up a million years longer than I originally imagine)...


Here we have the "Sweet and Devilish collection. The lipsticks in this collection are LE City Duets lipsticks--one is a red/black duo and the other is a white/gold duo.


The polishes--a white pearl with gold glitter and a black with gold glitter. Of course, I got both of them. There is also a mysterious "Demon Glow" top coat. Not sure what that is about. It doesn't contain any glow-in-the-dark particles that I can discern--just looks like a "dressed up for Halloween" version of a regular topcoat to me but maybe I'm missing something.

Eyeshadow duos! We have a pearly white & a gold duo and--GASP--another TRUE red drugstore shadow offering! This one is a matte red paired with a matte black. 




The bronzers in the display--a gold and white shimmer duo.  (I'm so sorry I neglected to get the shade names of all these)...

And finally, we have some liner duos--a black and red duo and a white and gold duo to go with the shadow duos. All in all a very exciting collection!

So are you digging any of these offerings?? Oh how hard it was to NOT walk out of the store with everything I saw!!

  1. Wow! I was just at Rite Aid on Monday and they didn't have any of this stuff. I guess I better get back there. I have some Up Rewards to cash in before they expire and those black and white NYC polishes may be calling my name!

  5. My local RiteAid is struggling. It always looks like they're on the verge of closing down! A few weeks ago, I got the chance to go in one a couple of hours from me in Surfside, SC. It was like a cosmetics wonderland! I hope my raggedy one gets some of this stuff!

    1. the one Rite Aid by me is an odd one. It is almost always empty with one lonely cashier there but they always have pretty much EVERY new makeup collection on hand and fully stocked since I guess I'm the only one who ever shops there lol. I seriously sit there and worry it will go out of business soon--then where will I find all my goodies? My local CVSes and Walgreens are all horrible and they NEVER have anything good or LE!
