Have you heard of CIRCA Beauty products yet? Don’t let the upscale appearance fool you; this savvy makeup line was created just for the drugstore!
CIRCA Beauty is a line developed in conjunction with Creative Director Eva Mendes that celebrates timeless beauty and classic elegance. The CIRCA line has 133 products in it, including foundations, eyeshadows, lipsticks–essentially everything you need to create your own individual look. The packaging has an art-deco quality to it; not something I’d expect to find at my local drugstore!
I was sent a variety of products to preview and my favorites include the Color Focus Eye Shadow Palette ($12) in 02 Alter Ego, the Ultrasuede Cream Blush ($13) in 02 La Spezia, the Color Treatment Tinted Lip Butter ($10) in 02 Sheer Rose and the Optical Illusion Lash Lengthening Mascara ($11) in Extreme Black. The Ultrasuede Cream Blush is insanely similar to one of my favorite cream blushes, the YSL Creme de Blush in Powdery Rose. I also liked the Circa Beauty Magic Hour Illuminating Glow (nice for summer).
Overall, I was very pleased with the quality of the products I tried. It’s hard to believe that a neutral look using the eyeshadow palette, cream blush, mascara and tinted lip butter could be purchased for under $50.
You can find the CIRCA Beauty line in Walgreens and online at walgreens.com. More info on the line can be found at circabeauty.com. Have you seen this line yet? What did you think? Let me know in the comments!
