From Department Store to Drugstore: 12 New Products That Made the Jump
Remember once upon time, when face oils were a luxury only to be found behind beauty counters of department stores? Seems like eons ago. But it did take some time for the now skincare staple to cross the luxury lines and make its way into the mass market. From cushion compacts to charcoal masks, scroll through for the latest products to make the jump to drugstore!
L'Oréal Infallible Pro Contour Palette ($13)
We find it a little hard to believe it took until 2016 for contour palettes to hit drugstore shelves, but it's true. L'Oréal's contour-and-highlight duo comes in three shades (Light, Medium, and Deep) and includes the brand's Pro-Sculpt Brush for easy on-the-go application.
Those gel-cream moisturizer hybrids, known as hydra-gels, are also popping up more and more. You can thank Korean-beauty brands once again for this light, non-greasy hydrator.
Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Makeup Remover & Cleanser ( $9 ) ($8)
Biggest beauty revelation of late: French women don't wash their faces. They use this stuff—micellar cleansing water. And while Bioderma may be the French pharmacy go-to, across the pond we can all rejoice over Garnier's newest launch.
Yes To Clear Skin Activated Charcoal Mud Mask ( $16 ) ($13)
Can we unofficially dub charcoal the ingredient of the year for 2015? It showed up in everything from cleansers to konjac sponges. Charcoal masks became a staple of every oily-skinned girl's medicine cabinet. But in order to secure one, you had to make your way to Sephora. Not anymore.
We're suckers for a twofer. Cleanser and mask in one and under $10? So long, clogged pores.
