Maybelline Master Chrome Highlighter Review, Swatches, and Comparisons

maybelline master chrome highlighter review
Even though I have way too many highlighters and have stopped buying high-end versions all together, I couldn't resist trying the new Maybelline Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter ($9.99 at Ulta.) I guess it was mostly out of curiosity...I wondered about the formula and if it could be a dupe for some of my higher-end golden highlighters.

Pacifica Beachy Punk Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches


I've been trying my best to not buy any more eyeshadow palettes for a while unless they're completely different from ones I already own. So when I saw the new Beachy Punk Palette ($14) from Pacifica at my local Ulta the other day, I knew it fit that description because I own very few colorful eyeshadow palettes. I typically wear neutrals on my eyes and shy away from color but one of the things that drew me to this palette was that the shades are colorful but not bright, so I guess that makes them more wearable in my mind. I also have never tried Pacifica eyeshadows before and the price was right.

Let's take a look!

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow Palette Volume III - Sneak Peek


Trendmood on Instagram just leaked a photo of the new Tarte Cosmetics Rainforest of the Sea Highlighting Eyeshadow Palette Volume III and I think it's the prettiest one yet!

I know a lot of people feel like Tarte only comes out with basic neutral shades all the time, but I don't mind because that's what I actually wear in my daily life. I have the original Rainforest palette and I really liked the formula. I didn't buy the second one because the colors didn't appeal to me...but this one is right up my alley with the rosy tones so I'll definitely be buying this one!

For reference, here's a look at Volumes I and II:
Volume I had mostly warm bronzy tones (with two rosier shades included) and Volume II was much cooler-toned. Volume III appears to be almost all rosy tones, which is so awesome!

What are your thoughts? Will you be getting this when it launches?

Sleek Makeup Lands in the US at Ulta Beauty!

UK beauty brand Sleek MakeUP has arrived in the US and is now being sold at Ulta.com! Right now the collection is limited to their palettes, but I'm hoping that just like with Makeup Revolution they'll start to include more of the line over time.

I'm really excited because I own one Sleek palette and a blush that I really love but since I hate to pay international shipping (and wait a long time for it to arrive), I haven't tried anything else from them in a while.

Have you ever tried Sleek MakeUP? Are you excited that they're now at Ulta Beauty?

L'oreal Summer 2017 Arrives at Ulta Beauty

Loreal has just released their Summer 2017 Collection online at Ulta.com, featuring the new Infallible Pro Glow Powder and Concealer, Metallic Lip Paints and Eyeshadow Singles, Matte Lip Liners, a new brow crayon, plus the new Lash Paradise mascara I reviewed a few days ago. 

I loved the Pro Glow foundation they released last summer and am very excited about a matching concealer and powder! The powder looks like it has a matte or satin finish on one side and a subtle highlighting powder on the other.

What are you excited to try from this collection? Have you seen it in-store yet?

Coming Soon: The Tartelette Toasted Palette

Tarte just shared a sneak peek on Instagram of their new Tartelette Toasted palette, and they said it will be "coming in hot this fall".

So what I'm wondering is...when they say "Fall" do they mean it's part of the Fall collection (which launched June 13th last year) or that it's actually launching in the Fall? Because we usually start to see the Holiday collections arriving in September so I'm hoping we'll see this before then!

I absolutely LOVE my Tartelette in Bloom palette...it's in my top 3 palettes of all time, so I'm really excited for this one. When I look at the Tartelette in Bloom (below),  the new Toasted version seems quite a bit warmer and perfect for Autumn.
What are your thoughts? Are you excited for a brand new addition to the Tartelette family?
