New Academy Of Colour Eyeshadow Palettes Spotted at Kohls

0

There are three brand new Academy of Colour Eyeshadow Palettes popping up in Kohl's stores this week, including a Peach version (that smells like peaches), a Metallic version with all metallic finishes, and a Holographic one with smoky holo shades. My pal Alana (@kohlsbeauty1452 on Instagram) posted some photos of these last night when she got them in her store and I couldn't wait to share them with you guys!

You might remember my review of the original Bronze Palette...it was a great deal at only $10.99 and a kinda-sorta dupe for the Kylie Palettes (mostly the packaging!). Then they released a Mulberry version back in June that I haven't gotten around to reviewing yet, but I did post swatches on Instagram here.


These aren't available online yet (only the original one is) but I'm going to try and hunt these down in-store today! These are typically found in the little display by the registers that has all of the travel-sized makeup and rollerball fragrances in it.

What are your thoughts? Have you tried either of the previous versions? Will you be on the hunt for these?

New Makeup Monday 8/21/17

1
It's that time again for New Makeup Monday and while there isn't too much newness to report this week, that's going to change very soon once the Holiday collections start arriving. Still, there are definitely some noteworthy new products to talk about like the new Benefit Punch Pop Liquid Lip Color ($18). They combine vibrant color with a shiny finish and a creamy, non-sticky formula. Available in seven shades.

I'm 39 Years Old, but I Need Tarte's Back To School Brush Set

11
Tarte's Back to School Brush Set has me at hello at only $39. I have a pretty large makeup collection but many of my brushes are older, budget models from brands like e.l.f. and bh Cosmetics...not that there's anything wrong with that of course! I own just one Tarte brush that came in a set on QVC and I've always wanted to try more...I just couldn't justify the price of buying them individually since they usually cost $30+ a piece. 

This new set is a great value at $39 and the wood and gold design will definitely elevate the look of my vanity. They're vegan and all full sized, and most of them are double-ended making them great for travel!

Here's what's included:
  • double-ended eyeshadow brush: Flat, dense brush packs on base shadows & fluffy tapered brush blends into the crease

  • powder brush: applies your favorite powder foundations & finishing powders

  • double-ended eyeliner brush: Thin, tapered brush traces a crisp, buildable line & you can use the opposite, flat brush to soften the edges & smudge your look

  • double-ended contour & highlight brush: small, domed brush traces a perfectly controlled contour or highlight & opposite fluffy brush buffs & blends to eliminate harsh lines

  • foundation brush: buffs on cream & liquid foundations

  • double-ended concealer brush: small, tapered brush applies concealer where you want it & fluffy brush blends your look - or you can use it for setting & baking your concealer
Grab yours now at TarteCosmetics.com before it sells out, because I have a feeling it's gonna go quickly!

New Skincare Sunday 8/20/17

1

Happy Sunday everyone! This week there are lots of deals to be had this week in the form of travel kits like this one from Peter Thomas Roth above ($24). It comes with three of his most popular masks in perfect travel sizes so you can try them before you splurge on the full sizes (which are totally worth it by the way!). 




Sephora also has lots of new try-me kits, including new-to-store brands like Kiehl's and Laneige. They're all $60 and under and most contain enough products for an entire routine so you can really get a feel for the brand and how the products work together.


Philosophy has six new kits at various price-points, including the Clear Skin in 3 Days set, Bye Bye Blackheads duo, Miracle Worker Duo, and Goodbye Wrinkles kits.



Ulta is now carrying Doctor Lip Bang's Lip Freak Balms in 4 tinted versions and 3 new scents: Pomegranate, Coco-loco Mint, and Psycho Punch. They're all infused with cinnamon essential oil for a buzzy, electric feeling on your lips.
  • Doctor Lip Bang's Lip Balms ($4.95 each at Ulta.com
Dior has just launched their new One Essential Skin Boosting Super Serum at Sephora and it's supposed to detoxify your skin from outdoor toxins (sun, pollution) and indoor toxins (carpet, glue, varnishes, and electronic devices). It also boosts the effectiveness of your other skincare products with a superfood cocktail of Vitamin C, Longoza, and Hibiscus.


  • Dior One Essential Skin Boosting Super Serum ($100-$158 at Sephora.com)
New from Lancer this week is their Caviar Lime Acid Peel. It contains caviar lime (an Australian fruit high in AHA's) and 10% glycolic acid to exfoliate your skin, plus 10% Phytic Acid to brighten and even out your complexion. If that weren't enough, it also contains Retinol to combat the signs of aging (lines, wrinkles, pores).


New from Pixi Beauty at Target are the Rose Caviar Essence and Rose Flash Balm. The Rose Flash Balm is a 3-in-1 oil-free Instant Skin Booster that can be used as a mask, moisturizer, and makeup primer and it instantly boosts tired skin for a brighter complexion. The Rose Caviar Essence contains encapsulated flower oils that melt into your skin to deliver fresh botanicals that are rich in antioxidants. It's supposed to hydrate, refine, tone, and restore skin's brightness. 

  • Pixi Rose Caviar Essence and Rose Flash Balm ($24 each at Target.com)



Simple has just released a new Water Boost line, which includes a Micellar Cleansing Water, Micellar Facial Gel Wash, and Hydrating Booster that all contain minerals and plant extracts. All three products are lightweight, yet hydrating for drier skin types. I purchased the Hydrating Booster at Walgreens the other day and it's a water-light gel that can be applied during your skincare routine to add extra moisture or it can be used just before makeup on dry patches. So far it seems to really help get rid of those dehydration lines on my cheeks, but I'm going to keep using it for a little while before I give my final review.


Finally, Bumble and Bumble haircare has landed at Ulta this week. I've been amazed at how many brands they've been adding that Sephora also carries...it seems like Ulta wants to take over the beauty world!





So that's what's new this week in the world of skincare. Is there anything you have your eye on to try?

Tanya Burr Peachy Glow Cheek Palette Review & Swatches

8
British YouTube guru Tanya Burr has her own line of cosmetics but since it's not sold in the states, I had no idea! I first spotted the products when I was browsing FeelUnique.com, which is a UK based beauty site - one of the few that ships to the U.S.! Everything in her line was so affordable, I decided to add a few things to my cart and ended up getting free shipping since my total was just over $30.

The first thing I couldn't resist trying was the Peachy Glow Cheek Palette ($8.70) because it looks just like the Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow Palette.  You may remember that the Too Faced version faced a bit of criticism because the powders were packed very hard and were difficult to pick up. I happen to own that one as well and I almost never use it for that reason, so I was curious to see if this one was a suitable dupe.

Will you be picking anything up this week?

Available at Sephora.com and Sephora stores while supplies last!

Kokie Cosmetics Blush Up Palette Review

0
Affordable beauty brand Kokie Cosmetics arrived at Walmart back in the Spring but none of the Walmart stores near me carry it (such a bummer)! So it's taken me a while to finally try some of their products...for some reason I have no problem ordering expensive products online but when it comes to drugstore I much prefer to go and pick it up in person. I think it's because I don't want to have to pay shipping on an inexpensive item (or have to place a huge order just to meet a minimum).


Anyway, I finally got the chance to try some products from the line and I'm really happy with them overall! My favorite so far has got to be the Blush Up Blush Palette ($9). I got it in the shade Blushing, which has a combination of peach, rose, and coral shades. They actually remind me a little bit of the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Blush Trios and I'll compare them at the end of this post.

Lorac Los Angeles Palettes Review & Swatches

12
lorac los angeles palettes
I was browsing around Ulta the other day and noticed that they had just put out the new Lorac Los Angeles Palettes ($24 each). From seeing photos and swatches online, I already knew I wanted to buy the Malibu one, but when I saw them in person and started swatching, I found myself torn between three of the five available shades...Malibu, Santa Monica, and Venice Beach.

3 Dupes for the Anastasia Subculture Palette

5
You may have heard all of the recent negative reviews on the Anastasia Subculture Palette, with many beauty gurus claiming that it was too powdery and didn't blend well. I was actually on vacation when it launched and planned to buy it when I returned home, but by the time I did, the bad reviews were starting to pour in so I decided to hold off and see if maybe they'll reformulate.

I Actually Like Wearing Sunscreen Now | Cotz Review

11
I know all-too-well how important it is to wear sunscreen on a daily basis...getting skin cancer at 30 years old wasn't something I ever expected to happen. It was an eye-opening and scary experience and one that I definitely don't want to repeat, and yet I still find myself skipping the sunscreen too often. The main reason is that most formulas are just so...unpleasant to wear. They're thick and sticky and smell weird, leaving my skin with a shiny film that sometimes still shows through my makeup. Even the "dry-touch" formulas have that telltale sunscreen scent and just don't do anything for my skin.

I recently discovered Cotz Face Natural Tinted Sunscreen SPF 40 ($19.99 at Ulta) and it's a total game-changer! It's actually a primer and a sunscreen in one, and it's unlike any other SPF I've tried.
First of all, it's a natural mineral-based sunscreen (vs chemical) with no preservatives, oils, or scent. It has the whipped mousse-like feel of a silicone-based primer and fills in pores and texture beautifully with a soft matte finish (no more shine!). The version I have has a hint of tint which pretty much disappears into my skin when I blend it out (they also have a non-tinted version if you're paler than I am) and I find that while it doesn't add much coverage, the overall texture of my skin looks and feels so smooth and soft, and makeup applies beautifully on top!

If you have oily skin or don't like the thicker feel of a primer, Cotz also makes another version called Flawless Complexion which has more of a lotion-like feel and disappears into the skin with no greasy feel and no scent. I also have that one as well and you honestly don't even know you're wearing it! It's dermatologist-recommended for blemish-prone skin and won't clog pores.

Overall, I'm amazed that more people aren't talking about Cotz, so I really wanted to get the word out there. I've been wearing the Face Tinted Primer for the past week straight and I actually enjoy applying it because it makes my skin look and feel better, not worse which is a first for me when it comes to sunscreens!

Currently, they're BOGO 50% off at Ulta, so it's a great time to stock up.

Have you tried Cotz? I'd love to hear about it!

Physicians Formula Hypoallergenic Lipsticks Review + Swatches

9
physicians formula 80th anniversary collection
Physicians Formula has just released their 80th Anniversary Collection and if you follow me on Instagram, you may have already seen my unboxing of the new products. In the past few days, I've learned quite a bit about the company and was surprised to find out that it was actually started in 1937 by a doctor (an allergist named Dr. Frank Crandall). His wife was suffering from Lupus and was struggling to find cosmetics that didn't aggravate her sensitive skin, so he created the line for her (how sweet is that?).

Dose Of Colors Mint For You Blush Review & Swatches

Dose of Colors recently launched their new Mint For You Collection at Ulta.com and being a total blush junkie (and a sucker for anything in mint green packaging), I grabbed both blush shades to try.

Colourpop Is Launching at Sephora...Thoughts?

11
Photo: @colourpopcosmetics on Instagram

Colourpop Cosmetics will be launching at Sephora.com and a few select Sephora store locations this November for the Holiday season and to start, it will just be holiday collections and a few items but not everything from the line (they can't tell us specifically what will be available just yet). 

They have assured their fans that the prices will not increase, which is great news! I'm also really excited because we will be able to return items that don't work out and we don't have to wait for Colourpop's slower shipping times (especially if you have Sephora Flash!).  And for those of you who live near one of the stores where it's sold (we don't know what those locations will be yet), you'll be able to swatch the shades before purchasing. 

However, I do find it to be kind of a strange partnership. I would have pictured Colourpop fitting into Ulta's brand landscape a bit more since they carry everything from drugstore to high-end. These days, it seems like Sephora has become increasingly more high-end with the addition of brands like Natasha Denona, Viseart, and Tom Ford. So I find the partnership with Colourpop to be a very interesting turn of events!

What about you guys? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this!

Lorac Beauty and the Beast Lip Gloss Collection Review & Swatches

0
The Lorac Beauty and the Beast Lip Gloss Collection ($34 at Kohls) is gracing my vanity at the moment and putting all of my other lip products to shame with its beautiful packaging. From the shiny gold caps to the golden roses and vines along the tube, these are just so pretty to look at! 
Included in the collection are five lip glosses, in mostly nude shades with a single pop of red.

#SwatchMyStash Project on Instagram

0

For those of you who aren't following me on Instagram, I wanted to let you know about a series I'm doing over there called #SwatchMyStash!  I have a pretty large collection of eyeshadow palettes and I feel like I've been in a rut, just using the same few over and over again.
So I decided to look through my collection and choose a different palette to use every day, focusing on those that I haven't talked about recently. Then I've been swatching them all and posting them to my Instagram page! So if you'd like to see all of the makeup I've rediscovered, head on over to Instagram and give my page a follow! :)

Also, I have a few awesome giveaways coming up on Instagram...one is starting tomorrow and the other will start once I get to 100k followers, (I'm at 99.5 at the moment!) so you don't want to miss those!

Lorac Beauty and the Beast Cheek Palette Review & Swatches
I love a good blush palette, and the Lorac Beauty and the Beast Cheek Palette ($28 at Kohls) might be the prettiest one I've owned to date. Everything about it is beautiful, from the packaging to the shades inside and I've found myself using it a lot this summer, even taking it on vacation with me.

IT Cosmetics IT's Your 30 Seconds to Flawless-Looking Skin TSV

8
The IT Cosmetics IT's Your 30 Seconds to Flawless-Looking Skin officially launches at midnight tonight on QVC as the Today's Special Value but you can shop it now before your shade sells out! This set is $49.14 (a $118 value) and includes two full-sized Celebration Foundation SPF50+ compacts, as well as a Heavenly Luxe Angled Buffing Foundation Brush.
First let's talk about the brush...it is so super soft, and I'm not surprised because IT Cosmetics makes the best brushes on the market in my opinion. I'm also loving the sleek holographic handle this time versus the usual silver...it's so pretty!

If you haven't tried Celebration Foundation yet, I'll just say that it's a powder foundation that's unlike any other I've tried. I've been using it for about 3 years now (although this is my first time trying the SPF50+ version) and it's just about the only powder foundation that plays nicely with my dry skin. It gives a flawless finish and tons of coverage with a creamy feel that doesn't accentuate dry patches, pores or lines/wrinkles. I mainly use it in the warmer weather months because it's so quick and easy to use...just swirl your brush in the compact and buff it into your skin. It literally takes 30 seconds and you're done. One layer gives me medium coverage but if I want to add a bit more in certain places  I can do so without fear of  looking "powdery" or like I've applied too much.

Here's a swatch of the Light shade and it's an almost perfect match for my skin...it almost disappears except that it's slightly more yellow-toned against my cool-toned complexion.

Overall, if you love Celebration Foundation like I do, this is the time to stock up! Just one compact retails for $35 and for $14.14 more, you're getting a second foundation and the brush.

Are you already a fan of Celebration Foundation? Will you be picking this one up?

Colourpop Cosmetics is launching four brand new products today at 10am Pacific (1pm Eastern), as well as restocking the Yes Please! palette (which I keep missing out on so I'm definitely grabbing it this time).

First up is their No Filter Concealer ($6). It comes in 15 shades and is full coverage and creaseproof. I'm really excited about this one because I'm hoping it'll be like Tarte's Shape Tape (fingers crossed!).

Beauty Chat: Do You Prefer Drugstore or High-End Makeup?

25

When I was growing up, we didn't have a lot of money and when I graduated from high school, I decided to go straight into the workforce (I didn't get my degree until much later) . I worked at various retail jobs, until my mid-30's, basically living paycheck to paycheck, so when it came to makeup, hair products, skincare, etc., I only bought drugstore. It honestly blows my mind now when I go into Sephora and see high school girls picking out Natasha Denona and Viseart palettes...it's just crazy to me.
My only experience with higher end makeup was when I worked at Sephora but I couldn't actually afford to buy any of the products we sold. Sometimes we would get products for free from the brands but for the most part, I would go in to work early and use the makeup we had in the store. I think back to that and get really skeeved out because those were testers that everyone in the world was touching...but we were required to wear the products we sold, so I did what I had to do.

When I left that job, I went right back to drugstore products again so I guess you could say it's what I'm comfortable with and thus what I naturally gravitate towards. I realize that some high-end products are better quality with better ingredients, and are often made in the U.S or Europe rather than China, but there are exceptions. Drugstore brands have gotten good to the point where I actually prefer certain mascaras. concealers, blushes, and lip products over their high-end counterparts. Even eyeshadows have come a long way (though I still prefer high-end eyeshadows overall). I also tend to splurge on skincare but lately I've been finding some really great formulas at the drugstore.

For me, there's also something satisfying about getting a bunch of products all at once than saving up to get one or two things, but only if you're not sacrificing quality.

So even though things have improved financially for me, I still gravitate toward drugstore products and get really excited when new products launch. This blog is my one and only reason for owning the amount of makeup that I do, especially the higher-end products. If my blog no longer existed, I would probably go right back to buying mostly drugstore and splurging on a high-end palette here and there.

What about you? Do you prefer drugstore makeup, high-end, or a mix of both?

Lorac Beauty and the Beast PRO Eyeshadow Palette Review

5
I know I'm a little late to the party on this one, but let's talk about the Lorac Beauty and the Beast Palette ($48) for a minute, because it's just that gorgeous. It actually arrived on my doorstep the day before I left on a two-week vacation back in June so I wasn't able to post about it when it initially launched.
But thankfully it's still available, so if you've been wavering and trying to make up your mind about this one, read on for my review and swatches!

Lorac LA Palette Swatches

lorac LA Palette swatches
Lorac just released five new Los Angeles-inspired palettes this week ($24 each at Ulta Beauty), which I shared with you in another post, but now I have swatches! Lorac posted them to their Instagram page and I'm kind of wishing I didn't see them because now I want almost all of these palettes!

TONS of New IT Cosmetics Products Launching Soon

7
IT Cosmetics is one of those brands that I get giddy about when they release new products. Just off the top of my head I can think of so many their products that have become staples in my beauty routine, such as the CC+ Cream, Bye Bye Makeup Cleansing Balm, Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer, Naturally Pretty Palette, etc. 
So if you're also a fan, get ready because a ton of new products are about to drop at Ulta soon! A fellow beauty Instagrammer I follow, @Trendmood1 (I'm pretty sure you've heard of her) was lucky enough to be invited to a launch party and she took a lot of photos, which I'll be sharing in this post!

Let's just dive right in...

Anastasia Subculture + More Launching Today 9:30am PST

3
Photo is from my Instagram page (reposted from @Trendmood1)

I just wanted to remind y'all that the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette will be launching today at 9:30 am Pacific (12:30pm Eastern)! Also launching are the new matte lipsticks (30 shades, $18 each) and the Liquid Glow Highlighters (4 shades, $25 each).

I'm planning to wait until the palette launches at Sephora next week. When the Mario palette launched last year, I waited and got mine at Sephora with Flash shipping and it arrived faster than those that had purchased from the ABH website since they were so backed up (some people waited over 2 weeks!). So just keep that in mind if you have Sephora Flash...you might still get it sooner!

Milani Everyday Eyes Basic Mattes Review & Swatches

Last week, I reviewed the new Milani Everyday Eyes Palette in Must-Have Metallics, and now I wanted to share the other new palette they just launched...Basic Mattes.

I purchased it for $11 at MilaniCosmetics.com but it's also popping up at Walgreens stores (that carry Milani), so you can also check there.

Lorac Sunset Palettes and Mini Palettes Now at Ulta

5
The Lorac Sunset Palettes ($42) have arrived at Ulta.com today, which is great news if you missed out on them when they first launched on the Lorac Website a couple of weeks ago. They also released some new mini palettes ($24)!

Which ones are you planning to get? I have my eye on the Desert Sunset palette and the mini palette in the white packaging (Malibu).

Would You Spend $50 on a Drugstore Palette?

14
We all know that drugstore makeup has gotten more expensive in recent years, but NYX has just released the priciest drugstore palettes I've seen yet at Ulta.com! At $49.99 each, they are similar in price to high-end palettes from Too Faced, Anastasia, Urban Decay, and Tarte.

In their defense, these offer a lot more than eyeshadow. All three contain a full face in a palette, including blushes, bronzers, highlight/contour shades, and/or lipsticks. In the past, I've had a pretty bad experience with palettes like this...usually the quality isn't as good, but if these are high-end quality, the price might be justified for some.

Still, I tend to stay away from large palettes like this because they're bulky and I normally don't use half of what's in them. So for me, even if the quality is good, I would probably rather spend the money on a smaller high-end palette or on several different drugstore products.

What do you guys think? Would you spend $50 on a drugstore palette? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Sleek MakeUP Now at Walgreens!

2
UK-based brand Sleek MakeUP recently arrived at Ulta and now you can also find it at Walgreens, online and in 150 stores. As of now, it's not at any of the locations near me (sniff!), but I'm hoping that they just haven't put it out yet and it'll be arriving shortly. I have always wanted to try more from Sleek but ordering online internationally was always expensive and took forever.

Now, we can order from Ulta but being able to just pop over to my local Walgreens and look at everything in person is even more exciting!

Have you seen Sleek at your local Walgreens yet?

Milani Everyday Eyes Must-Have Metallics Review & Swatches

6
Milani recently released two new Everyday Eyes Palettes in Basic Mattes and Must-Have Metallics ($11).  I purchased them both, since I loved the ones I bought last year during the original release...they're some of the nicest eyeshadows at the drugstore!

So far I've only found these online at MilaniCosmetics.com but several of you have told me on social media that you've seen them in a new display at Walgreens, so if your local store sells Milani, you can also check there. In my area, it's hard to find Milani at the drugstore so rather than go on the hunt, I decided to just order them online (they arrived in about 4-5 days).

New Bath & Body Brands at Ulta

8
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!
