Walgreens Look Boutique; Gosh Cosmetics; and new 2013 Wet n Wild Preview

walgreens look boutique
Walgreens  – corner of Sunset & Vine, Los Angeles

This morning, I went out looking for new 2013 drugstore products, and stumbled upon a new Walgreens store (an employee told me it opened December 1st).  For those local to Los Angeles, it’s on the corner of Sunset & Vine, where the Border’s store used to be.  From doing a bit of online research, I believe it is called a “look boutique” – it’s a store that, in addition to drugstore products and drugstore makeup brands, carries some midrange / high end brands – I noticed Cargo, theBalm, Pop Beauty, as well as skincare brands Nuxe, Avene, La Roche Posay and many, many more.   A couple photos:

I was also excited to see a Gosh Cosmetics display – Gosh is a Denmark based brand that is popular in the UK, but is only recently available in the US. I took some photos of the Gosh display, but I only had my cellphone with me and they didn’t turn out very well.

I bought a Gosh nail polish (612 Galaxy), but I’ll have to go back for other products after doing more research on the brand!

The other very exciting thing I found was a Wet n Wild display that was fully stocked with all the new Fergie products and 2013 products. Here are some photos of the display (some of these of the wall, which had all the new products, and some of the photos are from temporary displays, which I noticed first).

EDIT: I’m not sure how I missed it (since I stalk her blog), but G. over at Nouveau Cheap actually has already posted that this location is carrying these products! Apparently, it’s the only place in the country that already has them, and other Walgreens locations will get them in January 2013.

Wet n Wild / Fergie Bronzers – called “To Reflect Shimmer Palettes”
Wet n Wild  / Fergie Eyeshadow quads
“Maldives Sky” and “Dutchess Lounge” (yes, that’s how they spelled it)
Wet n Wild / Fergie eyeshadow quads
“Desert Festival” and “Metropolitan Nights”
Wet n Wild / Fergie Perfect Pout Lip Color Lipsticks (the far right is black)
Wet n Wild / Fergie gel eyeliners, mascara, eyeshadow primer
New Wet n Wild mascaras
New for 2013 Wet n Wild Mega Last Liquid Lip Colors
New for 2013 Wet n Wild Cover All Pressed Powder & Cream Foundation

I purchased five Wet n Wild items: an eyeshadow quad, a Perfect Pout lipstick, a Mega Last liquid lipstick (I’m curious to see if it’s really a liquid lipstick or more of a gloss!), a pressed powder, and the eyeshadow primer.  I’ll have swatches up later today, and the reviews will go up over the next few days as I have a chance to test things out!
