New Bath & Body Brands at Ulta

Ulta Beauty has added four bath & body brands to their lineup this week and I have to say...I'm really excited to try something new! These days, the makeup world has been on fire with new products coming out left and right and I feel like I haven't been focused on anything else.

I really love shopping for bath & body products but lately I've been feeling like nothing was exciting me. I actually walked into Bath and Body Works yesterday and walked out empty-handed because nothing was jumping out at me. So needless to say, I can't wait to check out some of Ulta's new offerings.

Let's take a look!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette Launching July 25 + SWATCHES

Anastasia Beverly Hills just gave us the first official look at their new Subculture Palette on Instagram this morning and there's already a big divide between those who love it and those who are confused by it. I admit, when I first saw it, I thought it looked like a mish-mosh of different shades that don't really go together but the more I studied it, the more I realized that it's actually kind of genius. 
Palettes like the Modern Renaissance are awesome but the entire palette has the same color scheme so a lot of the looks you create with it end up looking very similar. With this palette, you have warmer fall shades like chocolate brown, mustard, and olive green, along with cooler grays, blues, and purples.

I can see using the cool gray Mercury shade as a transition with either of the blue shades (Axis or Untamed), as well as the eggplant shade Rowdy. I would pair the mustard, green and brown shades together and use the shimmery Electric shade as a pop on the lid. Or I would create a warm-toned eye with Roxy, Fudge, and All-Star.

I think the best thing about this palette is all of the vastly different looks you can create with it, rather than having one palette with a bunch of similar colors. The latter is great if you love a certain color scheme but if you're looking for bang for your buck, the former gives you more versatility.

What are your thoughts? I'd love to know what you think! 

Available at Anastasia Beverly Hills on July 25th and online at Sephora, Ulta, Macy's, and Dillards on August 1. It'll arrive in-store August 15th.

Too Faced White Chocolate Bar for Holiday 2017

Too Faced just released a preview of their Holiday 2017 collection on Allure.com, including the new White Chocolate Bar Palette! It includes pastel shades and that delicious cocoa scent. I'm still trying to figure out if I need this one but I have to admit, I'm happy to see some colors that aren't warm neutrals! 

What are your thoughts on the White Chocolate Bar? Yay or Nay?

Lottie London The Rusts Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

UK-based makeup brand Lottie London just launched at Ulta last month, and since I love discovering new products (especially affordable ones!), I picked up a few products to try including The Rusts Eyeshadow Palette ($12.99). From the photos online, it looked like it could be a possible dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette and I've been getting tons of requests for a comparison (which is at the end of this post).

But first things first, let's take a closer look at The Rusts Palette!

Essence Fall 2017 Arrives at Ulta Beauty

A bunch of new Essence products just dropped at Ulta.com and there are quite a few that I'm ready to add to my cart including the new Eye & Face Palette ($5.99), Instant Matt Setting Spray ($4.99), All About Toffee Palette ($5.49), and Color Correcting Sticks ($4.49 each). There are also two new mascaras that I've been using for a few weeks now (stay tuned for a review on those!) as well as new metallic lipsticks.

What's on your list? Are you a fan of Essence Cosmetics?

Available now at Ulta.com (also a reminder that the new Wet n Wild Megaglo highlighters I reviewed last week are also available at Ulta starting today!).

Review: Is the New Sephora Pro Warm Eyeshadow Palette Worth the Price?

sephora pro warm palette review
The Sephora PRO Pigment Palette in Warm ($68) is one of three brand new eyeshadow palettes from Sephora Collection.  It was created by fifteen top makeup artists from the Sephora PRO team, and comes in Warm, Cool, and Editorial (bright) versions. I chose the Warm version because I thought it would be really pretty for the upcoming fall season, and also because the shade selection looks remarkably similar to the Natasha Denona Sunset Palette. I don't own the Sunset Palette, so I'm not able to compare the two, but I was definitely curious about the formula since $68 is pretty steep for a palette from Sephora Collection. In the past, their formula has been pretty hit or miss for me, so I was excited to see if this was a step up for them. Let's take a look!
