NEW Tarte Maneater II Palette, Shape Tape Eye Primer, Tinted Brow Gel

Tarte just dropped their new Shape Tape Foundation and now there are even more surprises, including the new Maneater Volume II Palette ($30). It has a slightly different layout with the addition of a black shade. I compared the original (left) with the new version (right) and all of the shades have the same names, yet look slightly different. That could just be lighting though...I'm guessing it's the exact same palette with one extra shade.

Also new is the Busy Gal Brows Tinted Brow Gel ($18). It comes in three different shades that claims to be buildable, tinted pigment that's waterproof and lasts 12 hours.

Finally, there's a new Shape Tape Eye Primer Stick ($21) that claims to be a 4-in-1 waterproof, creaseproof formula that doubles as an eye primer, neutral eyeshadow, correcting tint, and soft highlight.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette | Sneak Peek

The Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam palette was leaked on Instagram today, forcing @norvina to post official photos earlier than she wanted to.

In her Instagram caption, she wrote about her inspiration for creating the palette:

"Soft Glam was leaked, like everything else we launch nowadays. 
Here she is 😍😩 so proud of this palette. I wanted to create a neutral palette that is a go-to for anyone, transitions beautifully from day to night, and is a dream for MUA’s with a bridal clientele.

I made this palette for my mom @anastasiabeverlyhills 
She is a neutrals 👑 and likes what she likes. I’ve been staring at the same hues of shadows in her makeup drawers since I was little. 
In truth it’s not just for her, it’s for everyone that loves this color story & wants shadows that melt on your skin and are packed with pigment. 
I created 7 new shades, used 3 from MR (Modern Renaissance) & incorporated my moms favorite ABH single shades which happen to be nudes Sienna & Orange Soda. 
There’s also Noir, because some of my favorite bridal makeup is a cat eye using mostly shadow that some of my favorite MUA’s create 
My philosophy on using existing single shades of those that are in a palette is this; if I can create a brand new shadow that isn’t in the line wonderful, however if some of the shades that work within the configuration are close enough to be an existing shadow, I’m not naming the new one something else and making you purchase a shadow that you can’t find as a single should you hit pan. Fair is fair & beloved shadows especially neutrals don’t exactly go out of style. 
I have so much campaign stuff to show you late February, but for now, here she is 

I just uploaded swatches on my story. They’re rushed & done while upset so don’t judge the sloppiness

To me, this is like the more neutral "sister" to the Modern Renaissance palette. It has three of the same shades (Tempera, Burnt Orange, & Cypress Umber) but none of the brighter reds and oranges that neutral lovers shy away from. It looks super wearable and I'm excited for it! :) 

What about you guys? What are your thoughts? 

Tarte Shape Tape Foundation is HERE!

The new Shape Tape Foundation has officially launched at TarteCosmetics.com in two different formulas...matte and hydrating.

Each formula has 15 available shades and they're $39 each. They'll be launching online at Ulta Beauty on January 21 and won't be in stores until February 4th.

Head on over to TarteCosmetics.com and grab your shade before it disappears! (I picked up both formulas in the shade Fair-Light Neutral since it seemed to look less yellow than the other shades around it).

50% Off Algenist and bareMinerals Serum Today at Ulta

The Ulta Love Your Skin Event has been in full swing during the month of January, with 50% off deals happening every day. Today's deal really jumped out at me because it's two serums that I've used in the past and would definitely recommend!

The Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Vitamin C Serum, $59 (Reg. $118) is one of my favorite vitamin C serums and when I was using it I felt like my skin looked brighter and less lined. I finished out the entire bottle and would definitely repurchase! It didn't irritate my skin or cause redness like some other Vitamin C serums I've tried either because they use a derivative of C (3-O-Ethyl ascorbic acid). It's more stable and longer-lasting, so you don't have to worry that the potency will decrease halfway through the bottle.

bareMinerals SKINLONGEVITY Vital Power Infusion, $19 (Reg. $38) claims to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and help your skin look vibrant and healthy. I'm not sure about the fine lines and wrinkles part, as I didn't see too much of a difference there (maybe I didn't use it long enough) but I loved using this serum when I wanted my skin to look healthy and glowy. It really gave me a noticeable boost, which is great in the winter when my skin looks dull.

Have you tried either one of these serums? Do you plan to buy either one today?

Available on sale TODAY ONLY at Ulta.com
