CIRCA by Eva Mendes now available at certain Walgreens

Walgreens and Maesa Launch Exclusive Masstige Color Cosmetics Line, CIRCA, In Collaboration with Eva Mendes. Eva Mendes describes her experience with the collaboration:

"I've been involved with the beauty industry for a long time and wanted to help create a cosmetic line that could reach a wide variety of women – when Maesa approached me, I knew that opportunity had arrived," said Eva Mendes, creative director for CIRCA.  "As a Latin woman, it was important to me that we create a line of products that work for all women and is accessible without compromising quality."

The blushes pictured below retail for $10.00. The blushes have a very beautiful velvety and satin like finish. They are decently pigmented and they blend very nicely too. I do think that the price range is a little bit on the high side for such a new brand, but the quality makes up for this concern. The concealer is nothing amazing in my opinion. The concealer seems pretty dark for its shade and it is very light - I find that it doesn't cover much if anything at all. Shade 02 Flamenco beach is a nice shade for bronzing.
