Hello, HOLIDAY 2018!!! I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited for The Holidays when it comes to Holiday 2018’s Beauty Collection Releases. It’s no secret, that Pat McGrath has become THE makeup artist/beauty brand, that has been the most talked about, anticipated, and has THE highest of high quality products, of 2018. And with all of her absolutely FABULOUS releases this year, we can only imagine what kind of GORGEOUSNESS, she has in store for Holiday 2018!!

Enter, Pat McGrath’s Opulence: THE COLLECTION. I’m literally about to pass out from happiness, when it comes to this collection! Pat McGrath doesn’t skimp when it comes to quality of product, pigmentation percentage, and most of all; PRESENTATION. Working on NYFW, as well as being THE MUA, for Fashion Designers and Fashion Houses around the Globe, Pat McGrath has learned that presentation, is KEY to success. And like all of  Pat McGrath’s products, from lipstick packaging, to eyeshadow palette artistry, and especially, her sequin filled LAB packaging, Pat McGrath knows how to keep her followers excited, and filled with anticipation before every new release! And her Holiday 2018 Opulence: THE COLLECTION, is no different!




Opulence: THE COLLECTION, is full of new, LIMITED EDITION, Holiday 2018 products, including three BRAND NEW Eyeshadow Palettes, along with three different MATTETRANCE Lipsticks, for EACH Palette Color/Theme.



      • 1995

      • Elson
      • Flesh 3
      • Omi


      • Christy
      • Flesh 3
      • Forbidden Love


Obviously, Flesh 3, is a hot Holiday 2018 color, so it goes hand in hand with each palette, no matter which Opulence Collection Color Theme, you decide to go with. But I’m not complaining; Flesh 3 is an all skin tone friendly hue, and is THE MOST WANTED color of the season. So… Trust In Thy Mother. 

Opulence: THE COLLECTION, launches October 18th, online at And it’s sure to SELL OUT quickly, so make sure you’re on top of your game, and hit Pat McGrath’s website, at like, MIDNIGHT, on 10/18. No joke.

$19 – $129

Release Date(s):

10/12 online at &



Fenty Beauty by Rihanna has become one of the most popular Beauty Brand’s in the WORLD, due to their extensive, all skin tone friendly, array of foundation shades. From Ivory to Ebony, Fenty Beauty doesn’t leave ANYONE out, when it comes to skin tone and color, which is something I admire about not only Fenty, but Rihanna. From her Killawatt Freestyle Highlighters & Duos, to her INCREDIBLE, Stunna Lip Paint, Fenty Beauty keeps getting better and better, each release. And Fenty’s CHILL OWT Collection, is stunning, living up to Fenty Beauty’s ultimate goal; to keep EVERYONE in mind.

Kylie Cosmetics Halloween 2018 Collection

$17 – $195

Release Date(s):

10/12  at 3PM Pacific Time, online at



I love Halloween. EVERYTHING Halloween. So I was really excited to check out Kylie Cosmetics Halloween 2018 Collection. And while I do love the Lip Kit in Bite Me, and the Kylie Gloss in Handsome Devil, as well as the Creme Lipstick in Creep It Real, I’m not too crazy about everything else. And I’m a HUGE Kylie Cosmetics fan. BUT for those of you who are in love with the collection, and the colors offered, here’s the breakdown!



The Kylie Halloween 2018 Collection consists of:

  • Halloween 2018 Kyshadow Palette, with nine shades;
    • Nightmare
    • Bat Shit Crazy
    • Main Boo
    • Hey Pumpkin
    • Best Witches
    • Howl-o-ween
    • Freak On
    • Hex On Your Ex
    • Sweet Poison,


  • Lip Kit
    • Bite Me


  • Kylie Gloss
    • Handsome Devil

    • Monster


  • Kylighter
    • Go Ghost

    • Hello Ghordeous
    • Witch & Famous.



Kylie Cosmetics released her Halloween 2018 Collection at 3 PM (Pacific Time) earlier TODAY. It’s now 9:30 PM, (the night of October 12th) and nothing has seemed to sell out, yet, aside from the Matte Lipstick in Creep It Real, (and just BARELY SOLD OUT) which is the only non-Halloween based color in the collection, which is unusual for a Kylie Cosmetics release…. So I’m pretty sure that I’m not the only one feeling this way about the Halloween 2018 Collection.

On another note, I really hope that Kylie Cosmetics Holiday 2018 Collection will redeem itself for the Halloween 2018 Collection. And with the instantly successful, lovable, and GORGEOUS-NESS of the Holiday 2017 Collection, which included the Sugar & Spice Lip Collections, and the Naughty & Nice Kyshadow Palettes, along with the Ornament Lip Glosses & Metallic Lipsticks, in Dancer, Jolly, & Naughty, along with Lip Kits Merry & Vixen, the Holiday 2018 Collection will have A LOT of products to try to out do, and live up to. And I’ll definitely be keeping you updated on more news about Kylie Cosmetics Holiday 2018 Collection!

Natasha Denona’s Holiday 2018 *LIMITED EDITION* Cranberry Palette 


Release Date(s):


10/25 in Sephora stores

**available in select Sephora stores NOW




Natasha Denona (and every other Beauty Brand in the Industry as of late) has been releasing products and palettes like CRAZY! Natasha Denona’s GOLD Eyeshadow Palette, and her SAFARI Eyeshadow Palette, were recently released, as well as her Mini Star Eyeshadow Palette. But unlike these said gorgeous palettes, her Holiday 2018 Cranberry Eyeshadow Palette, is LIMITED EDITION, which catapults it to the top of Natasha Denona’s MOST WANTED, and the most highly anticipated palette out of all of her current releases.


Natasha Denona’s Cranberry Eyeshadow Palette, has four brand new shades, and one Limited Edition shade, from last year’s Holiday 2017 Aeris Palette. True to it’s name, each shade helps create the perfect Cranberry hued eye, which is one of the HOTTEST eyeshadow shades for Holiday 2018. I mean, just look at that GORGEOUS eye that Natasha Denona created for her Holiday 2018 release promos!?! How could you not be stoked for this release?! Housed in a gold five pan palette, with extra large eyeshadow pans, similar to all of Natasha Denona’s 5 Pan Palettes, this palette is easy to take on the go, or easy to store in your vanity, without taking up much space. And you can create perfect Holiday Party eye looks, as well as more toned down, daytime eyeshadow looks, with minimal fallout, and pigment packed color.


Natasha Denona is releasing her Holiday 2018 Limited Edition Cranberry Eyeshadow Palette on October 25th, online, at, and in Sephora stores. It’s available now, in select Sephora stores, but all of the Sephora’s I’ve called, so far, do NOT have The Holiday 2018 Cranberry Eyeshadow Palette, in stock quite yet. And from my past retail experience, it could be sitting in an unopened box, that just recently arrived, so it could possibly be available between NOW, and October 25th, at any given time….





Urban Decay’s NAKED Cherry Collection

$18 – $49

Release Date(s):






It’s no secret that Urban Decay’s most successful Beauty Collection/Line, has been the NAKED Collection. Whenever there is a NAKED Palette Release, Beauties everywhere, line up at Sephora’s across the Nation, to get their hand’s on Urban Decay’s cult favorite; The NAKED *insert editions, 1, 2, 3, Smokey, or Heat*. But with bright and bold hue trends emerging from their 00’s (The Year 2000’s) resting place, Urban Decay was able to go back in time, to their old roots, and add some brighter hues to their forever popular and beloved, NAKED Palette Collections.


Hello, Urban Decay NAKED Cherry Collection! And this time, Urban Decay went ALL OUT, with this Cherry Themed NAKED Collection, adding a NAKED Highlighting & Blush Palette, a Cherry scented ALL NIGHTER Setting Spray,  three beautiful and bold Vice Lipsticks, and two 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils, along with the absolutely GORGEOUS, NAKED Cherry Eyeshadow Palette! 


The NAKED Cherry Collection definitely stands out, around all of the cool-toned nude palettes and color trends this Fall (along with Morphe’s 35M Boss Mood Palette, of course), and is the perfect transitional palette for those of you who want to try out brighter eyeshadow hues, but aren’t quite ready to make a full commitment. Complete with eight neutral/daytime shades, and four bright pinks and burgundys, this palette is the perfect “beginner’s” collection of shades for adding simple and bright pops of color, a bright pink or burgundy shadow crease, or a light peach or pink hued eye, that will help you ease into the brighter and more bold hues. The velvety soft, powder based shadows, are surprisingly high in color payoff, but aren’t TOO bold, because that’s what Urban Decay’s NAKED Palettes are all about; Being Au Naturale.



And in true NAKED fashion, these twelve matte, satin, and glitter based shades, are housed in a “classic” NAKED Eyeshadow Palette tin, complete with a double ended NAKED Eyeshadow Brush, which is perfect to slip in your purse when you’re on the go. Plus, the pink to burgundy ombre’ shaded packaging, along with the cherries and a gold NAKED Logo, will have you and everyone else, gushing over how adorable the NAKED Cherry Eyeshadow Palette is; inside and out. Complete the adorable-ness, with the All Nighter Setting Spray, the NAKED Cherry Highlighting & Blush Palette, the pink, burgundy, and peach, Vice Lipsticks, in Juicy, Cherry, & Devilish, and the glitter based 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils, in Black Market and Love Drug, and you’ll be looking FIERCE AF, at any sexy Holiday Party, Masquerade, or night out.
