QVC graciously sent me the whole set ahead of time so that I would be able to review it for you guys and post some swatches, so without further ado, let's take a closer look!

Colourpop I Think I Love You is The Perfect Fall Palette

colourpop i think i love you palette

I was so impressed with Colourpop's Yes Please! Palette, I didn't hesitate to pick up the new I Think I Love You Palette last week as soon as it launched. It's a beautiful fall palette full of rich bronzes, coppers, brown, and gold in a mix of matte and shimmer finishes and it all comes housed in reflective, rose gold packaging.

Hot Deal on Lorac Palettes at Ulta

1
The Lorac L.A. Palettes are currently 50% off at Ulta Beauty, making them $12 each. I'm really wishing I had waited but that's the nature of the makeup world I guess. You never know what's going to end up on sale or if the stock will be around long enough.

Still if you didn't end up getting these when they launched (or got one and want some more), now's the chance to grab them before they sell out!

Visit my original post here to see swatches of all three palettes.

My First BoxyCharm Unboxing

4
To say that I'm over subscription boxes is an understatement. I cancelled Birchbox and Ipsy years ago and while I had some hope that I would love the Sephora Play and Macy's subscription boxes, I ended up getting rid of those as well. Rarely did I discover something new that I could use...I kept getting the same things over and over again (how many little tubes of the POREfessional does one person need?) and I had a huge bin of samples sitting in my room that started to give me anxiety as it overflowed onto the carpet. 

So why did I end up trying yet another box? Because BoxyCharm seemed different. It's $21 a month so it's double the price of Sephora Play, Ipsy, and Birchbox and $5 more than Macy's...BUT you get 4-5 full sized products, not samples! 

Not to mention that I was paying $25 a month between Sephora Play and Macy's anyway so I just cancelled them both in favor of BoxyCharm.

And guess what? I'm super happy with September's box...we're off to a great start! Let's take a look...

NEW Physicians Formula Butter Highlighters + Swatches!

Guess what just landed at Harmon/Bed, Bath, & Beyond...Physicians Formula Butter Highlighters ($9.99 each)! Somehow, I knew it was only a matter of time before they expanded their Butter line to include highlighters!
I was honestly surprised to see these because every time I've gone into Harmon's/BBB lately, they never have anything new. They used to be the first place I looked but the past year or so, drugstore products have been launching first at Walmart or on Amazon. But thanks to a heads up from @v_solid_ on Instagram who found them at her local Harmon in NYC yesterday, I headed straight for Bed, Bath, & Beyond this morning (my store has a Harmon's inside) and there they were!

 Let's take a look...

The Butter Highlighters come in four shades, Pearl (white with a pink shift), Champagne (gold), Pink/Rose (pink) and Rose Gold (rosy bronze). 

The packaging is totally different than the Butter Bronzers/Blushes. The latter have a separate compartment underneath with a mirror and a sponge, which make them a bit bulky. The Butter Highlighters come in low profile jars with a screw-on lid similar to the Colourpop Super Shock Highlighters.

The formula is also completely different than the other Butter products in that these are cream-to-powder. They're infused with Murumuru Butter and contain "ultra-refined pearls and soft-focus pigments that smooth skin texture, brighten skin tone, and deliver a gorgeous highlighted finish."

They're made in the U.S.A. and contain .17oz of product (compared to .15 in the Colourpop highlighters).

To me, the formula most closely resembles (again) the Colourpop Super Shock highlighters with an ultra-creamy, bouncy texture that picks up at the slightest touch and blends easily across the skin. The shades are super shiny with a metallic finish and they have the same tropical coconut scent that the Butter Bronzers and Blushes have.

I haven't tried these on my face yet so I can't yet speak for the wear time, but I just wanted to get this post up to let you guys know that these are available in stores now and to show you some swatches. I'll let you know my final thoughts on these in a future post once I've had a chance to try them a bit.

What are your thoughts? Are you excited to try these?

Rihanna's Fenty Beauty Just Landed at Sephora

8
Fenty Beauty by Rihanna just landed at Sephora today (both in-stores and online) with sixteen products ranging from foundation to highlighters to a universal lip gloss.

According to Rihanna, "Fenty Beauty was created for everyone: for women of all shades, all personalities, attitudes, cultures, and races. I wanted everyone to feel included, that's the real reason I made this line."

The foundation range has an incredible 40 shades and every skin tone should be able to find a highlighter that works for them as well. The Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer is also interesting as it only comes in one rosy nude shade that claims to work for everyone.

What are your thoughts on the line? Have you already purchased anything? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Fenty Beauty is available now at Sephora.com
