I went to my local Walgreens for drugstore things and came across a new makeup line. I saw the Nonie Creme Colour Prevails makeup line. Am I the last one to see this? Does everyone know about this except me?
First of all, I'm super sorry that I don't have real pictures. The beauty sales lady was stocking different makeup stations and I didn't feel right about snapping pics right next to her. So I did the next best thing and went to the Nonie Creme Colour Prevails website for pictures and research information.

When I checked out the website I found out that Nonie began as a manicurist and became a makeup entrepreneur. The story on her blog is pretty darn interesting. I'd like to read the whole thing so there will be some more researching going on.
While there is a complete makeup line, the Nonie Creme Colour Prevails Nail Lacquer ($8 Walgreens) drew me in. They are five free (no DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin or Camphor). I've been researching "better for you" nail polishes so I like that. Nomie changed the handle of the nail polish bottle for her polishes and made them more ergonomic for your hand. They are Made in the USA and come in 35 pretty interesting shades. There's also a regular top coat and a matte coat. I liked Girls Club and Babeland instantly. They are pretty pastel colors. I didn't pick one up and now I kinda regret it.
I also am pretty interested to check out the Nonie Creme Colour Prevails Colourwash Comfort Balm ($9 Walgreens). It's a combination of lip balm and lip stain. There are only 4 shades but really, who needs many more than that?! My eye went right to the Pink Wash (pictured) but I could also take Berry Wash home and be a happy girl.
It was early this morning and I hadn't had any coffee yet. Had I had my Starbeezies, I would probably have one of each of these goodies. They do look like pretties that I need to have in my collection.
Have you seen these are your local drugstore? Had you hear of them before? What do you think of them?
