Beauty Release(s): Kylie Cosmetics’ Blushes, Bronzers, & Kylighters AND Three New NUDE Matte Lipsticks + Liners.

Hello, Beauties! 

Kylie Jenner’s Beauty Brand, Kylie Cosmetics is already a BILLION DOLLAR COMPANY. But that’s not stopping Kylie. In fact, if anything her Forbes Magazine Cover/Story only MOTIVATED her. Which is pretty badass. It goes to show that Kylie isn’t just concerned about making enough money to retire and live The Simple Life, with daughter Stormi, and BF Travis Scott. It proves that she’s a hardworking, unstoppable, motivated AF, WOMAN with some serious GP (Girl Power- ….. ya know, like The Spice Girls… DUH). And yesterday’s Beauty Launch on KylieCosmetics.Com, also proves that Kylie Cosmetics isn’t just another Beauty Brand, that launches “Collectable” and “Limited Edition”, on themed, collections that go with what time of the year it is, but that Kylie Jenner wants to make Kylie Cosmetics a STAPLE Beauty Brand, that offers EVERYTHING for EVERYONE, as far as their Beauty needs go. So without further adieu, here is every *BRAND NEW* product, that Kylie Cosmetics released yesterday!

 

 

Kylie Cosmetics January 18th *NEW RELEASES*

Kylie Cosmetics BLUSH (New Shades):

$18|Www.KylieCosmetics.Com

Shades:

  • We’re Going Shopping- Clean Coral

  • Pink Power- Pale Pink
  • Baddie On The Block- Mid-tone Clean Pink
  • Rosy- Mid-tone Berry

Kylie Cosmetics *BRAND NEW* Blushes, are seriously GORGEOUS. They are PERFECT for SPRING, and are all very natural shades, but they are PACKED with PIGMENT. And don’t worry; if you’re a fan of Kylie’s older Blush Shades, those are still a thing, and you can still buy them on Www.KylieCosmetics.Com. BUT the new shades aren’t as BOLD as the older shades, which is nice, because I have a feeling that Spring is going to be all about pale pinks, blush pinks, and nudes, as far as color trends go (in Beauty anyways).

Plus, the new Kylie Blushes are packaged in pink, plastic compacts, that click and actually CLOSE, which is a plus, since Kylie’s older Blushes and Kylighters stick together with a magnetic strip on each end (which sometimes causes for spilled product- especially in your makeup bag). The packaging is just like Kylie’s Holiday 2018 Blush, Kylighter, and Perfecting Powder, but instead of Baby Blue, they are Powder Pink!

You can purchase these Blushes, one at a time, OR you can get the Blush Bundle, BUT the Blush Bundle is, of course, SOLD OUT, because of their popularity, AND due to people buying them in BULK and then selling them on Mercari, eBay, and Poshmark for double the price… UGH. I hate that. Those people need to get seriously, WOKE. But Kylie always does a RESTOCK, so keep your pretty peepers, peeled, and make sure you check KylieCosmetics.Com, everyday for News & Restocks!

Kylie Cosmetics KYLIGHTERS (New Shades):

$20|Www.KylieCosmetics.Com

Shades:

  • Cheers Darling- Light Champagne Gold **Birthday Collection 2018 KYLIGHTER, Champagne Showers RENAMED!!
  • Quartz- Icy Gold
  • Dreamin’ Of Diamonds- Bright Yellow Gold
  • Ice Me Out- Icy Champagne
  • Queen Drip- Peachy Gold
  • Princess Please- Icy Pale Pink

Similar to Kylie’s NEW Blushes, Kylie Cosmetics’ NEW Kylighters, are very natural and compliment the NEW Blush and NEW Bronzers, extremely well. The icy shades of pink, yellows, champagne’s, and golds, are NOT frosty- just icy, which is kind of a big difference. If a Highlighter is making your face look frosty and cakey, then that’s a BAD THING. But with all of Kylie Cosmetics Kylighters, there’s ZERO FROST. Just pure pigment with a dash of sparkle. But not GLITTER, sparkle. ICY, shimmer, is a better way to put it. And like Kylie’s NEW Blushes, they are packaged in the same, Baby Pink, PLASTIC compacts, which click n’ close, which is another UPDATED (and relieving) feature. Which means no more wasted KYLIGHTER Powder in your makeup bag or purse. *HOORAY*

You can purchase these as singles, OR you can purchase the Kylighter Bundle, but alike to the Blush Bundle, due to it’s popularity and those skeevy “Bulk Shoppers”, the Kylighter Bundle is SOLD OUT. So make sure to stay updated on RESTOCKS. Also, Kylie Cosmetics’ SUPER POPULAR, ORIGINAL Kylighters, are still for sale on KylieCosmetics.Com. So don’t worry your pretty little face- Salted Caramel and Cotton Candy Cream is STILL a thing.

**BONUS**

Kylie Cosmetics CHEERS DARLING Kylighter, is the exact same shade from Kylie’s 2018 Birthday Collection, originally named, “Champagne Showers”, and is back by popular demand. So if you LOVED Kylie’s Birthday Kylighter like I did, you can now buy it on the regular and make it a STAPLE Kylighter in your Collection.

Kylie Cosmetics BRONZERS (New Product):

$18|Www.KylieCosmetics.Com

Shades:

  • Khaki- Golden Bronze
  • Tequila Tan- Warm Bronze
  • Toasty- Neutral Mid-tone Bronze
  • Almond- Warm Amber Bronze
  • Tanned And Gorgeous- Warm Mocha Bronze
  • Tawny Mami- Deep Chestnut Bronze

So Kylie decided that since Spring and Summer are coming (I HOPE SOON… UGH), that Kylie Cosmetics needed BRONZERS! Which is a smart move. Because EVERYONE needs a good bronzer- for Spring and Summer, anyways, as well as for Contouring. So Kylie Cosmetics released SIX NEW BRONZERS, yesterday, and all of them are packed with sunny and warm pigments, and leaves a soft, smooth, and buttery finish to your contour, as well as your BRONZE. The pigments are NOT orange-y, like a lot of other bronzers, and she offers SIX Light to Deep shades.

The smooth and creamy powder formula, can even be used as a Perfecting Powder (think Kylie’s Holiday 2018 Collection’s Perfecting Powder in “You’re Perfect”), but for Medium to Deep Skin Tones. And for Light Skin Tones? We WILL be able to use Khaki as a Perfecting Powder/Bronzer, as soon as April hits, because let’s face it- Tan is NOT a good look for Lighter Skin Tones in the dead of Winter. But as for now, Light Skin Tones can Contour your little heart’s out with ANY shade of BRONZE– just blend, please.

Kylie Cosmetics’ BRONZERS come in the same pink packaging, that click n’ close, just like the NEW Kylighters and Blushes, so there’s no worrying about spilling any of this gorgeous and velvety bronzing powder. And you can mix and match these with the NEW Kylighter and Blush shades, which go hand in hand! You can Highlight, Blush, and Bronze (Contour) in 3 easy steps, with 3 beautiful (and Pink!) Kylie compacts! The Bronzers DO NOT come in a Bronzer Bundle, but you can buy them as singles, OR you can buy them all in the Kylighter|Blush|Bronzer Bundle, which comes with EVERY SHADE of the NEW Kylighters, Bronzers, and Blushes! Find your perfect threesome, like NOW, on Www.KylieCosmetics.Com!!

lipstick-nudes_1024x1024

As a SURPRISE to #KylieFans EVERYWHERE, Kylie Cosmetics released THREE NEW Matte Lipsticks! And the theme??? An obvious Kardashian-Jenner staple style, NUDE, is what these Lipsticks are ALL ABOUT. And I don’t think anyone with a TRUE LOVE for Beauty, could EVER get sick of NUDES. After all, The NUDE LIP, is a trend turned CLASSIC. Plus, if you LOVE Kylie’s Nude Shades, but you’re more of a “Cream/Bullet” style Lipstick fan, then this is basically a dream come true! You get the CLASSIC Kylie Cosmetics Nude Lip Colors in a bullet style lipstick- so those of you whose lip’s dry out from Matte or even Velvet Liquid Lipsticks, can rejoice to the formula of these new Lippies! And the best part? There are THREE BRAND NEW Lip Liners, that can be used hand in hand with these new Matte NUDE Lipsticks!!

 

 

Kylie Cosmetics *BRAND NEW* NUDE Lip Liners:

$12|Www.KylieCosmetics.Com

Shades:

  • Souflee’- Dusty Warm Rose
  • Dirty Rose- Deep Rose Pink
  • Hot Chai- Golden Nude Brown

 

lipliners-nude

 

Yesterday, Kylie released TWENTY FOUR *BRAND NEW* Products! And NONE of them disappoint. And part of that release, are THREE *BRAND NEW* NUDE Lip Liners! The three new Lip Liners are shades, Hot Chai, Souflee’, and Dirty Rose, and all of them are absolutely GORGE. My personal fave, Souflee’, is a beautiful, dusty warm rose! Dirty Rose, is a deep rose pink, and Hot Chai, is a golden nude brown! These shades go well with an array of Matte and Velvet Liquid Lipsticks, AND Matte/Cream Bullet Style Lipsticks, that are already familiar to Kylie Cosmetics! AND they also go with the NEW Nude Matte Lipsticks!

Now, before you flip TF out and think to yourself that these shades DO NOT go hand in hand with the Nude Matte Lipsticks, remember that lining and using a darker Lip Liner to ombre’ and bring out your natural lip lines, to create a “plumper” lip look, is what Kylie is ALL ABOUT. Yes. They are darker. Yes. They don’t match the Nude Matte Lipsticks to a T, BUT creating definition with a Lip Liner, is what a Lip Liner is supposed to do! Think CONTOURING– but for your lips! And instead of filling your lips in completely, with a Lip Liner, LINE your lips! It’s easy. I promise.

 

**Lip Contouring Basics:

  • Line Outer Lip Line With Lip Liner, on TOP and BOTTOM Lip.
  • DO NOT SHADE, FILL, OR BLEND IN THE LINE. 
  • Line your NATURAL Lip Lines w/ Lip Liner
  • DO NOT BLEND IN LIP LINES (you will look like you have a zipper for a mouth at first, but that’s TOTALLY okay. 
  • Take a LIGHTER shade of BULLET/CREAM Lipstick, and fill in, IN BETWEEN the lines.
  • DO NOT GO OVER LINES WITH LIPSTICK!!
  • Press your lips together firmly, 1-3 times to create a NATURAL BLEND, OR apply a thin layer of LIGHTER, SHEER, Lip Gloss (shimmer or non-shimmer) on both your inner top and bottom lip! 
  • Now, enjoy your contoured, plumped, and PERFECT POUT.

You can purchase the BRAND NEW NUDE Matte Lipsticks + Liners, as singles, (Lipsticks for $17 a piece, and Liners for $12 a piece), or you can buy ALL THREE Lipsticks, for $45, ALL THREE LINERS for $30, or ALL THREE LIPSTICKS + LINERS for $75! AND they haven’t SOLD OUT yet! But they will. Because it’s Kylie Cosmetics. So HURRY and get your Lipsticks + Liners, ASAP! 

 

*ALSO* Don’t forget about Kylie Cosmetics HIGH GLOSS RESTOCK!! AVAILABLE NOW!!

Kylie Cosmetics NEVER disappoints when it comes to NEW RELEASES. Fresh and ALWAYS Fabulous, this NEW RELEASE, ups the bar for Kylie Cosmetics, morphing it from a SPECIALTY Beauty Brand, to a STAPLE Beauty Brand, which is HUGE for Kylie Cosmetics. And this release is definitely FRESH AF and perfect for Spring. Great job, Kylie! You’ve knocked it out of the park, for the BILLIONTH TIME, to date (no pun intended!

This Week In Beauty: MONOCHROME.

Hello, Beauties!

Last week I had a MOMENT. A MOMENT, for me, means that I have a feeling of excitement, mixed with inspiration, part epiphany, and equal parts creativity, along with the urge to do my makeup ASAP. And that MOMENT was inspired by MAC’s MONOCHROME Line! Particularly, the Velvet Teddy shades. As you know, Velvet Teddy is a CLASSIC from MAC, which is one of the muted mauve nude shades, that kicked off the now, CLASSIC, Nude Lip Trend.

So what?

*OLD NEWS*….

NOPE.

Think again!

MAC’s Monochrome- Velvet Teddy Line doesn’t just include the Classic Matte Velvet Teddy Lipstick! It includes a *BRAND NEW* LipGlass, in Best Teddy, a Powder Blush (Satin) in shade Sur, a Glitter in shade Bright Bronze, an Eyeshadow (Frost) in Dear Teddy, and an Eyeshadow (Matte) in Soft Teddy!! And guess what?? THEY ARE ALL SHADES OF VELVET TEDDY! And I’m SOOOOO IN LOVE!!!

And here’s the BEST PART– MAC also released FIVE other shades of MONOCHROME products, (Diva, Heroine, Candy Yum Yum, See Sheer, & Ruby Woo, as well as their matching products) so you can match your eyes, lips, cheeks, and that pretty little face of yours, to your heart’s delight! I think I just died and went to MONOCHROME Heaven!

Monochrome is all about pure, pigmented, and gorgeous color, that match to a T. And having the same shade, but different finishes of the shade, ties together your makeup look, and tops it with a a pretty, little, perfectly-knotted bow. And I know that we’ve ALL heard Beauty Buff’s in the past preach about NEVER matching your Lip & Eye Color to the exact- but that’s a thing of the past! And with all of the BOLD, BRIGHT, and frankly, unnatural Beauty Trends that have been trending these past few months, Monochrome will look perfectly poised, compared to the Bright Greens, Turquoise’s, and Blues’ that have been hitting the Beauty Scene as of late (not that BOLD and BRIGHT is a bad thing).

So if you’re into the more natural and toned down makeup look, then Monochrome is your ticket to trying a BOLDER trend, but with natural hues, like Monochrome Velvet Teddy and Monochrome See Sheer. And if you’re all about BOLD and BRIGHT, then Monochrome Candy Yum Yum and Heroine, is your ticket to up your color game! Missing the hues of Ruby and Burgundy Eyeshadows?? NOT ANYMORE! Because Monochrome Ruby Woo and Monochrome Diva, have you covered! Ruby Woo’s, Holly Folly Eyeshadow (Frost) and Monochrome Diva’s, Dare To Diva Eyeshadow (Frost), is your new BFF.

Conclusion:

I hope that you’re as excited as I am! Because seriously, all of these product collages are absolutely GORGEOUS. And with the MONOCHROME trend, you don’t have to worry about matching certain shades of eyeshadows and blushes, to certain shades of lipstick, etc. Because MONOCHROME is all about pure, pigmented, and gorgeous color, that go hand in hand, and match perfectly!

 

Have A Fab & Fresh Day, Beauties!

Berry GORGEOUS. Berry OBSESSED.

Hello, Beauties!

So in my latest blog post, I talked a little bit about Winter’s HOTTEST trend; Berry Tones. BUT today, I’ll be focusing on all of the hottest and freshest products, that are ALL ABOUT BERRY. Move over golden nudes, and get ready to get schooled about all things BERRY. From cool toned berry tones, to neutral, sparkly, metallic, and warm Berry Tones, let’s talk about EVERYTHING BERRY. And in Fashion, styles evolve and change, obviously. But Fashion repeats itself, and the same goes for makeup and beauty trends! And with the 90’s popping up EVERYWHERE in the Fashion World, I’ve been waiting to see Berry Tones come back in Beauty. From deep berry-toned, mauve lips, to purple based eyeshadows, it looks like it’s unfolding, exactly how I imagined. And it couldn’t be more beautiful! So read on, and let’s get our Berry Game on! You’ll be looking Chic AF in Berry Tones, with NEW RELEASES from Beauty’s Hottest Brands, featuring ALL THINGS BERRY.

Very Berry Eyes:

 

If you can pull off red based eyeshadow, then you can definitely pull off Berry Toned Eyeshadow. Berry Tones are more natural, and go with warm, neutral, and cool skin tones, as well as light, medium, medium/dark, dark, and ebony skin tones! It might be a bit intimidating at first- especially Berry Toned purples and pinks, but as long as they are Berry Toned based, I promise, they aren’t as intimidating and bold as you might think. And with cool, warm, and neutral based Berry Toned Eyeshadows EVERYWHERE, you can find your most flattering and perfect Berry Toned eyeshadow match in a snap, with these gorgeous Berry Inspired Eyeshadow Palettes!

 

 

Violet Voss

Fun Sized Mini Eyeshadow Palette|Berry Burst

$18  www.sephora.com

s2150589-main-zoom.jpgViolet Voss’ Fun Sized Mini Eyeshadow Palette in Berry Burst, is the PERFECT, highly pigmented, inexpensive, beginner’s Berry Toned Eyeshadow Palette. First off, it’s only $18. Secondly, it has ten, warm/neutral, Berry Toned shadows, to play and experiment with, to find your perfect Berry Toned eye look. And four of those eyeshadows are nudes/goldens, so you can start off with applying a nude/golden base, then add a pop of Berry across your eye crease, or on your inner, outer, or mid eyelid, to see which Berry shade you’re IN LOVE with, and either build up the Berry, or sit with the pop of Berry on those pretty lids, to find out which Berry Toned shades you are willing to go a little bolder with. Either way, you win. You’ll be rocking the Berry Toned Eye, with just a pop of Berry, or a FULL ON Berry Toned eye! And there is a mix of mattes, satins, and metallics to transfer your pop from a daytime to nighttime look, with ease!

 

 

Kat Von D Beauty

*SUPER LIMITED* Lolita Eyeshadow Palette

$39  www.sephora.com

 

Kat Von D Lolita Eyeshadow Palette Instagram

Kat Von D Beauty is one of the TOP THREE MOST PIGMENTED Beauty Brand’s. So you can expect HUGE color payoff, when it comes to ANY of Kat’s Products. And the Lolita Eyeshadow Palette definitely delivers! Not only is this my absolute favorite Eyeshadow Palette from Kat Von D Beauty, but it’s also the most natural, flattering, and feminine. And it’s ALL BERRY/ROSE TONED! A mix of satin and matte finishes, you can start out by using either Besitos (Light Skin), Hermosura (Medium Skin), Lolita (Dark Skin), or Corazon (Ebony Skin), as a BASE. Then use a darker color (light to medium skin tones) or a lighter color (dark to ebony skin tones) in your crease, or a pop on your FULL lid, inner lid, or outer lid, to make the Berry Tones POP. Build up the color by going from light to dark, or dark to light (depending on your skin color) to create a natural, blend-able, ombre’ effect. This will help you achieve a natural Berry Toned Eye. BUT if you want a BOLD Look, use the shade MOST DIFFERENT from your natural skin tone, in your crease- from the inner lid, all the way up to the bottom of your brow bone. Then take the color down to your outer lid, to create a sharp, winged eyeshadow look. Blend in the color, and add a color that’s a few shades lighter than your crease shade, on your lid. And ALL skin shades can use the neutral, but rosy shade, Promesa, on your brow bone, to highlight your brow bone. You can keep the sharp and bold eyeshadow wing, OR you can blend it out with a Beauty Blender, or DRY eyeshadow brush, to blend the shade out. Either way, this palette is PERFECT for every Berry Toned Beauty Look, and is perfect for creating a Natural Berry Toned eye, or a Bold Berry Toned eye.

 

 

Huda Beauty

The NEW Nude Palette

$65  www.shophudabeauty.com

 

e3efcac5437f4a9294e04a59a8425509

Huda Beauty’s The NEW Nude Palette is the OG of Berry Nudes. I mean, to be fair, Berry Nudes are a new thing. BUT Berry Nudes are going to be (and already are) a HUGE trend in the Beauty Industry, for Winter 2018/19. Dare I say Berry Nudes could evolve into a CLASSIC? With the way Huda Beauty’s The NEW Nude Palette is selling out, inspiring other Brand’s to release Berry Toned Nudes, and covering the pages and screens of EVERY Beauty IT GIRL’s blog, IG’s, Snaps, Influensters’, Vlog’s, etc. I’m thinking that the Berry Toned Trend just might be here to stay….Just like the NUDE Lip is here to stay!

 

 

Dominique Cosmetics

Berries & Cream Eyeshadow Palette

$44  www.sephora.com

 

SWATCHES-e1544753546713.jpg

Dominique Cosmetics has a line of adorable and pigment packed palettes, and Berries & Cream, is just one of the themed palettes that Dominique Cosmetics has to offer! Berries & Cream is one of the only Berry Toned palettes that has a Blue shade in the array of colors, so for all my Beauties who love Blue, then this is the palette for you! A mix of neutral and cool shades, these shadows pick up extremely well on any good makeup brush, and offer matte, satin, and extra sparkly finishes. Berries & Cream also has three shades which are NOT Berry Toned, so if you’re not feeling Berry Tones on a particular day, then you can still put this palette to good use!

 

 

Kevyn Aucoin

NUDEPOP Pro Eyeshadow Palette

$57  www.sephora.com

 

Kevyn-Aucoin-NudePop-Pro-Eyeshadow-Palette

When I think,  “Kevyn Aucoin” , the word, LUXURY, comes to mind. And Kevyn Aucoin’s NUDEPOP Pro Palette, is luxurious, AND on point with Berry Toned shade trends. Similar to shades and the overall tone of Huda Beauty’s The NEW Nude Palette, Kevyn Aucoin’s NUDEPOP Pro Palette offer’s twelve shades of Berry Toned “Nudes”.

**Are you seeing a pattern here?? Huda Kattan IS right! Berry IS the NEW NUDE** 

A mix of satins, mattes, and metallics, these silky, pigmented, and long wearing shades can be used for natural eye looks, with POPS of Berry, OR you can go BOLD, and create a Berry based smokey eye. AND this palette is perfect for beginners, who aren’t totally in love with the idea of Berry (yet), BUT are in still in love with Blush hues. Because no one EVER said Blush hues aren’t a thing anymore.

Viseart

Blush Palette|Plum Bronze

$80|www.beautylish.com

viseart_01plumbronze001

Viseart is one of the highly innovative Beauty Brand’s that has recently blazed the beauty trail with the motto, “YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR”. Along with Beauty Brand’s like Natasha Denona, Hourglass, and Pat McGrath, these high quality and highly pigmented products are expensive, but SO WORTH IT. So what sets these Beauty Brands apart from others? It’s simple: QUALITY. Viseart, Natasha Denona, Hourglass, and Pat McGrath focus on, not only, high pigment percentage, but they focus on “good for your skin” ingredients, longer wear time (because having to touch up makeup all day or night makes for wasted product AND time), the amount of product you’re receiving in each pan and applicator, the amount of product that’s actually picked up on a makeup brush, AKA avoiding product fallout and wasted product, along with making sure you get high, opaque, color payoff with just one swipe of a makeup brush, as well as avoiding skin, eye, and lip irritants. Bottom line? These Beauty Brands’ actually CARE about their customers satisfaction, body, health, AND wallet. Which is pretty damn amazing (and rare AF).

Viseart’s Blush Palettes are some of the best in the industry, and Plum Bronze is a shining example of HIGH QUALITY, high pigment percentage, and rich color payoff. Viseart’s Plum Bronze Blush Palette houses six different shades of Plums and (you guessed it)… Bronze, which is perfect with Winter 2018’s Berry Tone Trend. You can Blush, Bronze, Contour, and Highlight (Dark and Ebony Skin Tones), with Plum Bronze, and there’s a perfect shade for every skin tone and mood. Whether your Berry Toned Eye and Lip call for a more subtle and natural cheek, then the Bronze side of Plum Bronze is PERFECT, as well as applying a contour. And the Plum side of Plum Bronze has three Berry Toned, Plum based shades, that can be layered, blended out, or customized with the other shades in Plum Bronze. So with that being said, Viseart’s Plum Bronze is friendly for ALL skin tones, and it’s perfect for your Berry Gorgeous face.

 

 

Natasha Denona

Diamond & Blush Palette|Darya

$89  www.beautylish.com

 

natasha-denona_darya_001_palette.jpg

One of the most popular and innovative Beauty Brands, Natasha Denona, released her Diamonds & Blush Palette(s), quite a while ago; BUT with that being said, Natasha Denona’s DARYA Diamonds & Blush Palette, is PERFECT for Berry Toned Highlighting, Blushing, and Contouring, that pretty little face of yours. Natasha Denona’s other Diamond & Blush Palette option, CITRUS, is perfect for brightening your face, but DARYA, is a better option for a more toned down and natural look, offering neutral and Berry Toned shades. It’s a little on the pricey side, but with the high pigment percentage, and long wearing properties, it’s definitely worth it!

 

 

Tarte 

Tarteist PRO Glow Highlight & BLUSH

$45  www.sephora.com

 

2538319

 

Tarte has come a long way, these past few years, in the Beauty Game. From their CULT FAVORITE, Amazonian Clay 24 Hour Blushes & Highlighters, to their Shape Tape Concealers and Foundations, Tarte has earned the trust, respect, and love of Beauty Babes EVERYWHERE. And Tarte’s Tarteist Collection, of high quality blushes, eyeshadows, highlighters, mascaras, brushes, concealers, etc. has become STAPLE in Millions of Makeup Collections across the Globe. And Tarte’s Tarteist PRO Glow & Blush Palette, is one of those *MUST HAVE* palettes for every Berry-Obsessed Babe’s pretty, glowing, and flawless face. The Tarteist PRO Glow & Blush Palette, houses six different highlighters, blushes, and contour bronzers. But instead of having 3 highlighting, and 3 bronzer/contour options, like other contouring/highlighting palettes on the market (which means you probably only use ONE highlighter and ONE bronzer/contour shade, and the four other shades just sit in the palette, untouched), there are 6 different shade options that are flattering on EVERY SKIN TONE, and can be used for EVERYTHING– not just highlighting and contouring. *HOORAY* There IS a highlighting shade, and there IS a bronzer/contour shade, but the rest of the shades are Berry Toned Blush shades, which can be used as BLUSH for Light, Medium, Dark, and Ebony Skin Tones, and Highlighting/Strobing Powder for Dark to Ebony Skin Tones! You can mix these shades together to create a totally unique, and customized shade of Berry, and you can lighten and deepen the shades with the included highlighter and bronzer/contour shades! And if you are a TRUE Makeup Artist, you know that using specific products, for specific areas, is a bunch of BS. So if you’re so inclined, you can use these BERRY Friendly Shades, on your eyes, too! TARTE, has the word, ART in it. And Makeup IS ART.

The shimmering and soft pink, and the sparkling and deep coppery rose, bring out the best in each other, and leave an intense and long lasting, shimmering and sparkling Berry Toned Blush, on your pretty cheeks! And NARS Dual Intensity Blush is perfect for ALL Skin Tones and Shades! You can lighten it up with the shade on the left, or deepen it down with the shade on the right!

meltcosmetics295372316

Melt Cosmetics is a Beauty Brand that’s edgy and innovative- Especially with their newly released SMOKE OBSESSIONS Collection, which is all about the GREEN, if you get my drift. But something that isn’t included in the SMOKE OBSESSIONS Collection, are Melt’s BlushLights; A Blush and Highlighter Medley, which include Blush appropriate colors, and the shimmer and sparkle of a Highlighter (and are PACKED with pigment). Fire Fury is one of the edgiest and bold colors Melt has to offer, so Beauties that like to keep it Au Naturale, be warned. Fire Fury can also be used as an eyeshadow, which is on point with both Berry Toned Eyes AND CHEEKS.

#Love it.

When you think of Sephora, what comes to mind? For me, a high end Beauty retailer, that offers all of the best and hottest Beauty Brand’s comes to my mind. But aside from all of the Beauty Brand’s, there is Sephora’s VERY OWN Collection, which is one of the TOP THREE BEAUTY BRANDS THAT USES THE MOST PIGMENT IN COSMETICS. And even though there are SO MANY awesome Beauty Brand’s and products at Sephora, it’s sometimes easy to overlook Sephora’s IN HOUSE Pro Collection, which is where this pretty little palette comes in, and you won’t be disappointed. I promise.

Sephora’s Contour Blush Palette, contains six highly pigmented shades, that can be used for Blushing and Contouring (and Highlighting for Dark and Ebony Skin Tones).

Twenty, Clove, Hollyberry, and Angel, are some of Kylie Cosmetics TOP SELLING shades. And for good reason! Hollyberry and Clove are perfect for eye looks with deeper Berry Tones, from any of the deeper Berry Toned shades from any Berry Toned palette, like Devilish, Drunk Dial and Privacy, from Urban Decay’s NAKED Cherry Eyeshadow Palette! They also look GORGEOUS with lighter eyeshadow Berry Tones, as long as the eyeshadow shades are along the same lines of Berry hued bases.

Angel and Twenty are more on the lighter side of the Berry, and are perfect berry based, mid-tone nudes for darker skin shades, and are great choices for deeper mauve shades, for lighter skin shades! These colors are also go hand in hand with any lighter Berry hued eyeshadows! The mauve bases in Angel and Twenty, are perfect for Daytime Berry Based Looks, or can be ombre’d out with a darker lip liner (try Dolce K Lip Liner for $12 at http://www.kyliecosmetics.com or M.A.C’s Chicory Lip Pencil for $18 at http://www.maccosmetics.com) for Nighttime Berry Based Looks!

KKW’s Pink Creme Lipstick Set, is PERFECT for Berry Toned Lip Looks AND Eye Looks! Considering that KKW’s Classic Blossom Collection IS inspired by Japanese Cherry Blossoms, it’s perfect or every shade of Berry! From light to dark Berry Toned Eye Looks, KKW’s Pink Creme Lipsticks go hand in hand with all shades, Berry.

KKW’s Pink Creme Lip Liners’ versatile 3 shades, in Pink 1, Pink 2, and Pink 3, are perfect for ombre’-ing your Berry Delicious Lips! The only Pink Creme Lipstick shade, that does NOT go with any of the Pink Creme Lip Liner’s, is Pink Creme Lipstick #8 (Hot Pink), but as shockingly vivid as #8’s neon/bright pink hue is, I don’t think you’ll need to ombre’ anything to add more dimension!

Especially deeper, vivid, and bolder Berry Lips, that go with Dominique Cosmetics Berries & Cream Eyeshadow Palette, and Natasha Denona’s Cranberry Eyeshadow Palette! BUT even though matching Berry Eye Looks with Berry Lip Looks is essential in most Berry Toned cases, the deeper, vivid, and bolder colors can’t be TOO BOLD– which means DO NOT match Hot Pink Lips to Hot Pink Eyes…. etc. etc. etc. So with that being said, the tones of the above mentioned palettes, PLEASE stick to the LIGHTER shades of Berries & Cream, and Natasha Denona’s Cranberry Palette, if you are going with a BOLD and BRIGHT Lip Look.

The Look: Six Holiday Beauty Persona(s), & The Freshest Beauty Products To Achieve The HOTTEST Holiday Look(s)

Hello, Beauties!

Now that Thanksgiving is over, The Holidays and WINTER, are in full swing! That means, that color trends are deepening, reds are EVERYTHING, and cool/neutral toned, glittery highlighters, are what you need on your sweet cheeks, to really make a Winter-y statement! And with Black Friday (I like to call it, Friday Noir, because it just sounds SO much better, and you know, CLASSY) and Cyber Monday behind us, I’m sure all of my Beauties got a very sparkle-filled, and glittery, beauty haul(s)! So which products go with which Beauty Trend?? Let’s discuss everything! From products, to Beauty Trends, to the Hottest Holiday Collections, let’s talk about what’s worth it, what’s not, and which products have us absolutely OBSESSED, along with every Winter/Holiday 2018 look and trend, that will have you at the top of your Beauty Game!

 

Winter 2018 Trends:

 

Winter is the Season of MAGIC. Shimmering, white, snow tops the mountains, Reds, Golds, and Silvers, are everywhere; whether the colors shine from a Holiday Tree, or from rooftops, sporting silvery, frozen, icicles in between Holiday light strands. Holiday Parties fill your calendar, Holiday Cards fill your mailboxes, and there’s a certain feeling of love, happiness, and excitement in the air. Winter is the Season of Shiny, Pretty, Things” –MAC Cosmetics, and truly, there’s no better way to describe the Beauty Trends that go hand in hand with Winter. The following Beauty Trends are based on the hottest (or coldest, if you get my pun), Holiday Collections, Looks, and Beauty Influencer Beauty Trends, that are filling up the pages of Magazines, Instagram feeds, Snap Chats, Shop Windows, and Promotional Marketing, everywhere this Winter Season!

 

 

Look No. 1

The Snow Bunny

The Snow Bunny Look, is one of my absolute FAVORITE LOOKS this Winter Season. From all white, to fur lined coats, to fur lined Sorels and UGG’s, and fur topped beanies, every Snow Bunny will be lined with fur…. (FAUX FUR, hopefully… But this is all about BEAUTY. So let’s leave politics at the door, please). Anyways, The Snow Bunny, is NOT afraid of the Snow, Cold, or Chill of Winter. They enjoy everything that Winter/Snow has to offer, and they aren’t afraid to play in it. And by the end of the day, frozen/snow covered lashes, bright, nude, shimmering eyes, snowy, sparkly, snow kissed cheeks, silvery, sparkling skin, and a nude/natural lip, is what this trend is all about. Shimmering, sparkling, snowy, and frosty makeup looks, is what The Snow Bunny, represents.

Sexy Little Santa

PAT-McGRATH-MOTHERSHIP-V-BRONZE-SEDUCTION-Makeup

Sexy Little Santa, is everything HOLIDAY. Sexy Little Santa is everything 50 Shades of Red. And Sexy Little Santa is the Queen of Holiday Parties. From smokey and sultry eyes, to pouty, red, lips, Sexy Little Santa isn’t on the Nice List. But Santa loves her (or him) anyways… The Sexy Little Santa waits under the Mistletoe, wraps themselves up in something sexy with a bow around her (or him), and gives themselves as a gift to their significant other. She (or He) matches their red lipstick to their Louboutins, and can’t get enough gold and shimmery sparkle, on her pretty, little, caked and baked face. Inspired by the deep, red color of Santa’s velvety, soft, suit, but reinventing the design of the Santa’s Suit by the hands of Karl Lagerfeld or Donatella Versace, this look mixes Classic with everything glittery, shiny, and new.

From cool, blue-reds, to deep Oxblood reds, M.A.C has a variety of shades, finishes, and different tone Reds to create an entire wardrobe of Red Lipsticks. Studded Kiss is a Matte, but since it’s a cream formula it doesn’t dry out your lips, which is a MUST, for the Winter Season! The new Shiny Pretty Things Holiday 2018 Collection, released a Matte Metallic Red Lipstick called Straight Fire, for those of you who want to add some sparkle to your Classic Red. And last but not least, is Black Cherry, for my Beauties who love Liquid Lipstick! And the best part? The Black Cherry Sweet Scrub Set, comes with a Lip Scubious Lip Exfoliator, which is a necessity for polishing and exfoliating those dry, Winter kissed, lips, before applying a matte based Liquid Lipstick- so there’s no cracking or uneven application. AND it also comes with M.A.C’s Prep+Prime Lip Primer, to moisturize your pretty pout BEFORE applying the Liquid Lipstick in Black Cherry (or ANY Liquid Lipstick out there).

0607845083764

I was so stoked when I saw NARS Cosmetics released their Little Fetishes Collection, of highlighters and blushes, because A) NARS’ Blushes are some of the best blushes out there; ORGASM being the No. 1 selling Blush in The US, year after year. And B) The color selection is superb. And if you do use ORGASM, (which is great for all skin tones, AND absolutely gorgeous) you should try branching out and trying other shades that NARS has to offer. And Little Fetishes is the perfect opportunity to try one of NARS’ deeper, and spicier shades, Dolce Vita, which is a universal dusty rose, which looks beautiful on all skin shades. The deep and spicy rose shade, is perfect for The Spice To Your Sugar, look, and it goes well with other warm and spicy shades on your fabulous little face. Along with Dolce Vita, comes  NARS’ Highlighting Powder, in shade, Capri, which is a gorgeous highlighting option, for ALL skin tones, due to it’s universal color properties (crushed pink pearl/peach), meaning it doesn’t give off a “grey cast” on medium dark, to dark/ebony skin tones, which is a luxurious upside compared to a lot of other highlighters on the market today.

**NARS Highlighting Powder in Capri, is extremely comparable to Kylie Cosmetics Kylighter in Snow Angel (from Kylie’s Holiday 2018 Collection) which keeps SELLING OUT. So if you are wanting Snow Angel, but can’t seem to find it, I highly suggest trying NARS Little Fetishes in Dolce Vita|Capri. Not only is it just a great as Kylie Cosmetics’ Kylighter in Snow Angel, if not better, BUT you get a GORGEOUS NARS Blush in Dolce Vita, to go with your NARS Highlighting Powder in Capri!

Anastasia Beverly Hills 

Sultry Eyeshadow Palette

($45) http://www.anastasiabeverlyhills.com

 

2534733

Anastasia Beverly Hills recently released their Sultry Eyeshadow Palette, which is one of their sexiest, smokiest, and most sultry palettes (hence the name) they’ve ever released. 14 cool toned nudes and smokey shades, fill this palette, which is high in pigmentation, color payoff, and guaranteed to give you the sexiest eyeshadow looks you’ve ever been able to achieve. And Miss Rockefeller Christmas 2018 is all about sultry. Shades Cinder, Teak, Steampunk, and Ember, are all metallic/glitter based shades, and will add a gorgeous pop to your smokey eye. Shade(s), Dystopian and Noir are matte based shades, which are perfect for your eye crease, to create the smokey, sultry, dark, and sexy, classic smokey eye, of your dreams.

**NOTE: These shades have a higher color payoff when used with a good eyeshadow primer, or over a liquid/cream foundation or concealer on your eyelids. The pigmentation is good- it’s just a lot better when used with a primer. Personally, I use Anastasia Beverly Hills Stick Foundation, in Banana, over my lids. My lids have a red tone to them, and the yellow hues in Banana, cancels out any redness, not only on your lids, but anywhere else on your face. Anastasia Beverly Hills Stick Foundation also has more moisture and is rich in emollients, but DOES NOT cause eyeshadow or setting powder to crease, crack, or wear off. If you have oily or combination skin, I suggest using this ONLY as a lid primer.

Natasha Denona|Holiday 2018

Gold Palette 

($129)

http://www.sephora.com

fhifuh.jpg

Natasha Denona’s Gold Palette, is a modern twist on Classic. Golds, Beiges, Browns, and two gorgeous Teal shades; one matte and one metallic, completes this 15 pan palette. Each shade is high in pigmentation, and picks up well with any good makeup brush. You can use these shades with, or without an eyeshadow primer, but I’ve noticed that with the cold and dry Winter air, EVERY powder based eyeshadow should be used with a good primer or foundation, pre-application (Check out my **NOTE under ABH’s Sultry Eyeshadow Palette). Plus, using these colors over a good primer or foundation/concealer, will make these pigments POP, even more than they already do. A mix of cools and warms, will complete the perfect gold based eye, on ANY skin tone, and if Miss Rockefeller Christmas 2018 is feeling daring, she (or he) can add a pop of Teal, to your Classic Golden Eye.

DP1004201807015947M

 

Marc Jacobs Holiday 2018 Collection, is ON POINT with Miss Rockefeller Christmas 2018. From the golden glow you achieve with the O!Mega Glaze All Over Foil Luminizer, to the Silver & Gold Packaging that all of these Holiday products are housed in, these are some of my favorite Holiday 2018 Releases. The O!Mega Glaze All Over Foil Luminizer is perfect for highlighting, not only your high points of your face, but also adding a golden glow to your neck, chest, arms, etc. And Marc Jacobs’ Holiday 2018 ALL OVER Face & Body Brush gets the job done. The soft brush fibers, and the dense shape of the brush, can be used to layer on the shimmer, by packing it on with the top fibers of the brush, OR you can get a softer glow by sweeping product on with the sides of the brush. Either way, these products go hand in hand, and are perfect for achieving that warm, sparkly, and perfect Holiday Glow.

**NOTE: If you have acne prone or oily skin, I suggest using a separate highlighting brush for your face and body. Otherwise, sanitize this brush after every use. The different PH levels on our skin, can transfer bacteria, oil, etc. onto our face from our chest, arms, etc. which can cause breakouts.

Christian Louboutin’s GOLDOMANIA Holiday 2018 Collection is just that. GOLD AF, which is perfect for Miss Rockefeller Christmas 2018. High in pigment and luxury, these products from Christian Louboutin’s GOLDOMANIA Collection are sure to impress. The Loubilaque Lip Lacquer, creates an opaque and gorgeous TRUE GOLD Holiday Lip, while the Les Yeux Noirs Lash Amplifying Laquer, creates perfect length and volume over natural lashes, OR lash extensions/false lashes. The Tape a’ l’Oeil Metallic Eye Colour is a liquid eyeshadow that can be used as a liner, all over eyeshadow, or creates a golden, metallic eyelid. And as usual, Louboutin’s signature, elongated applicators (like Hourglass’ Confession Ultra Slim Refillable Lipsticks’ applicator) ensure’s that product application is easy and comfortable, just like Louboutin Nail Lacquer, which is my all time FAVORITE Nail Lacquer, due to the elongated applicator.

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.

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 http://www.kyliecosmetics.com

 

kyliecosmetics-halloween-bundle_1024x1024

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,

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!

The theme is obviously glitter, glamour, and everything shiny, which is perfect for 2018’s “strobing craze”, along with Holiday present-like Bows, pressed into select powder based products. There are also pictures of two different Holiday 2018 Glow Kits, that look identical (packaging wise) to MAC’s Hyper Real Glow Kits, that have been surfacing on Instagram, and inside Sephora’s Beauty Community, so I’m sure there will be other products for Holiday 2018, like these cosmetic bags, (pictured below) makeup brushes, and Limited Edition Holiday 2018 Kits, Sets, etc.

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.

holiday-2018_natasha-denona-cranberry_001_promo

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.

holiday-2018_natasha-denona-cranberry_002_promo

Natasha Denona is releasing her Holiday 2018 Limited Edition Cranberry Eyeshadow Palette on October 25th, online, at http://www.sephora.com, 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….

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.

THE Fall 2018 Beauty Palettes & Collections That Will Keep You Looking Fresh & Fab!

Hello, Beauties!

*NEWS FLASH*

The Beauty Industry is HUGE. Even before Kylie Cosmetics, and the KKW “contouring” craze, that started a few years ago, which sky rocketed Beauty Brands, like Anastasia Beverly Hills to the top, the Beauty Industry was already a multi-billion dollar industry. And with Kylie Cosmetics being a BILLION dollar BRAND, on its own, you can only imagine what type of “Net Worth” the Beauty Industry is, as a whole. It seems like almost every day, a new Beauty Brand hits the scene, or a new collection from an already-successful Beauty Brand, is launched.

It gets overwhelming.

BUT; if you are looking for some truly *MUST HAVE* Eyeshadow Palettes, Lipstick Sets, and Face Palettes, and you don’t want to go through the “trial and error process” of purchasing and experimenting with palettes/kits that will only end up collecting dust in your makeup collection, then I have you covered!

The following palettes are THE Eyeshadow Palettes, Lipstick Sets, and Face Palettes for Autumn 2018:

 

 

 

Natasha Denona CAMEL Eyeshadow Palette

$48  

http://www.sephora.com

zb_p

This just might be the BEST neutral eyeshadow palette, of ALL TIME. Like, no joke. Natasha Denona ALWAYS delivers when it comes to Eyeshadow Palettes, (and just about everything else) but I cannot get over how gorgeous this richly pigmented, multi-skin tone flattering, five shades fit all, Camel Palette is! And five colors may seem like a small number of pans, in comparison to other eyeshadow palettes that are on the market today, BUT this palette has become A STAPLE, in my makeup routine, and I can’t get enough of these gorgeous hues. I literally have hundreds of eyeshadow palettes, and I can’t stop reaching for this palette, daily!

s2118982-av-02-zoom

Because Natasha Denona ensures high quality, as well as high pigmentation for all of her products, one sweep of color provides high coverage, opaque, and intense color payoff, and The Camel Palette, is no different. So a little goes a long way! And with three matte shades, and two shimmer based shades, you can create a daytime to nighttime transformation, with ease. The long-lasting color does NOT fade throughout the day, and the pigments “stay put” on eyes extremely well, during a night out. There are so many gorgeous styles and looks that come out of this five pan palette, including more toned down, work-appropriate looks, as well as High Fashion/Editorial looks that are easily achieved, including the “Neutral Smokey Eye”, that Natasha Denona uses for her Camel Palette Campaign, on her website.

_dyncontent_ProductEntityImage_2018_8_6_251975530417984196636.jpg_398_398_2

The best part?? The Camel Palette looks absolutely STUNNING, on ANY and EVERY skin tone and shade! From Ivory to Ebony, The Camel Palette brings out EVERY eye color, and every skin color’s BEST FEATURES, which is something a lot of eyeshadow palettes and highlighting palettes, on the market today, fail to achieve. And the neutral based colors are “the key” which makes that possible.

Pat McGrath MOTHERSHIP V: Bronze Seduction Palette

$125

http://www.patmcgrath.com

 

s2111938-main-zoom

Pat McGrath DOES NOT disappoint when it comes to, literally, ANY of her products. From her full coverage lip and eye pigments, to her gorgeous and experiment-friendly mixing labs, to her richly pigmented “ready to wear” eyeshadow palettes, Pat McGrath knows her stuff. Supermodels at Fashion Week call her “Mother”, and important Fashion Icons call her, “the most important makeup artist of our time”, (and if that doesn’t say something about her “makeup game”, then I don’t know what does). AND Pat McGrath’s Makeup Line, was an instant success, with products “selling out” in a matter of hours, on her website. She’s THE QUEEN MOTHER, of makeup artistry. And her new MOTHERSHIP: V Bronze Seduction Palette, is a blatant example of how luxurious, gorgeous, and highly pigmented, Pat McGrath’s makeup products really are.

The MOTHERSHIP: V Bronze Seduction Palette, not only houses ten absolutely STUNNING shades for Fall/Winter 2018, but just the packaging/cover art,  is something to fall in love with. The “spice” inspired shades, range from matte based aubergine’s, to matte cocoa’s, to shimmer based “true” golds, and pink hued rose golds, opals, and creams, which are absolutely PERFECT for Fall.

s2111938-av-01-zoom

Every shade in The MOTHERSHIP: V Bronze Seduction Palette, are packed with pigment, long wearing, and extremely rich and blend-able. Each shade POPS, on ANY skin shade/tone, and you can create work-friendly/daytime looks, and transform your daytime look into a nighttime look, with ease. The artistry possibilities are endless with these ten beautiful shades, and like all of Pat McGrath’s other products, you will NOT be disappointed!

 

 

 

NARS Atomic Blonde Eye & Cheek Palette

$59

http://www.narscosmetics.com

0607845083665

 

If you feel like NARS hasn’t been on the top of their game lately, think again. Although NARS used to be one of THE “it girl” Beauty Brands, it seems like they haven’t really released anything very “innovative” in the past few years. BUT that’s all changed with the release of some of their more popular products and palettes, like NARS Bord De Plage Highlighting/Bronzing Palette, and their absolute *MUST HAVE* Atomic Blonde Eye & Cheek Palette. Unfortunately NARS Bord De Plage’ Highlighting/Bronzing Palette has been discontinued, BUT Atomic Blonde Eye & Cheek Palette is available and ready for purchase on http://www.narscosmetics.com!

hp1

Atomic Blonde Eye & Cheek Palette, is a collection of neutrals for eyes and cheeks, that’s extremely similar to Natasha Denona’s Camel Palette; as far as shades go, that is. But what’s great about this palette, are the two large pans, which contain a bronzer for contouring, and a highlighter for strobing/highlighting. The colors that NARS offers, are more on the warmer side of the spectrum, so it’s perfect for Beauties who prefer warmer colors, over neutral colors. It’s also nice to have a palette that includes a highlighter, bronzer, AND eyeshadow colors, because it’s easier to throw in your purse for Beauty emergencies (AKA touchups, and transforming an eye look from a daytime look, into a nighttime look when you are on the go). The colors are velvety and creamy (but still in powder formula) and each color pan produces high color payoff, and long wearing properties, so you get what you pay for when you purchase this gorgeous lil’ slice of cake.

NARS-Atomic-Blonde-Eye-Face-Palette-Now-at-Sephora

I’m very happy with NARS Atomic Blonde Eye & Cheek Palette, and I’m also very happy that NARS is making it’s way back into the Beauty Scene. I mean, they never really left the Beauty Scene, but with all of the new Beauty Brands that have come out in the past few years, it’s hard to stay loyal to a brand who isn’t producing innovative products, unlike Anastasia Beverly Hills, Huda Beauty, and Natasha Denona. So GREAT JOB, NARS! Congratulations on your comeback!

Kat Von D *LIMITED EDITION* Best of Nudes Mini Studded Kiss Creme’ Lipstick Set 

$44

http://www.katvondbeauty.com

31629Autumn Fashion Trends, tend to ALWAYS be neutral. So Kat Von D and her Beauty Genius-self, released her *LIMITED EDITION* Best of Nudes Mini Studded Kiss Creme’ Lipstick Set, which is perfect for Fall and Winter. Best of Nudes comes with six Mini Studded Kiss Creme’ Lipsticks, in all of the brands most wanted/most gorgeous Creme’ Nude Lipsticks, which caters to every skin shade, and ranges from true nudes, deep browns, toasted mauves, and muted siennas. So whether you’re feeling more of a natural lipstick shade, or a lighter nude, or darker nude, this lipstick set has you covered. And my favorite part?? Each of these shades melt into each other with ease, so you can create THE PERFECT ombre’ lipstick application. This is definitely one of my favorite Lipstick Sets of the season. This is definitely any Nude Lipstick Lover’s *DREAM*.

The Best of Nudes Mini Studded Kiss Creme Lipstick Set contains the following shades:

31629_alt3

Kat Von D is one of the TOP THREE most pigmented Beauty Brands in the ENTIRE Industry. And with all of the pigment packed, popularity and staying power of Liquid Lipstick, your mind tends to wander to the blatant question of why creme lipstick is still around…. BUT, this is why; Liquid Mattes and Liquid Velvets are great for one color and done, lipstick applications. But with the gorgeous ombre’ and multi-hued lipstick application trends, Liquid Mattes and Liquid Velvets just don’t get the “ombre’” job done, like a classic Creme’ Lipstick. And with the highly pigmented color payoff that Kat Von D’s Studded Kiss Creme’ Lipsticks give you, you can create ombre’ lip applications, which melt into each other with ease, and still get that gorgeous color payoff and those long wearing properties of a basic Liquid Matte/Velvet lipstick. And the best part?? Creme’ Lipsticks don’t dry out your pretty pout, like Liquid Matte’s can. And they don’t flake off, “ball up” with re-application or touchups, or crack.

 

 

 

 

Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Sultry Eyeshadow Palette

$45

http://www.anastasiabeverlyhills.com

anastasia_beverly_hills_sultry_eye_shadow_palette_blog

Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Sultry Eyeshadow Palette, is one of the most gorgeous eyeshadow palettes, that Anastasia Beverly Hills has EVER released, (even the Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Master Palette By Mario) which is saying A LOT, considering all of the other GORGEOUS palettes that have been released from this, practically perfect in every way, Beauty Brand.

 

abh-eyeshadow-palette-sultry-a

 

The Sultry Eyeshadow Palette contains fourteen cool toned shades, (two of which are BRAND NEW) and are all absolutely PERFECT, for Autumn/Winter 2018. The cool toned nude shades, a mix of matte and glitter based finishes, are perfect for a cool toned, nude, smokey eye. The silver glitter based shade, Cyborg, is the perfect addition to add a pop of silver-y glam, to any nude based eye. Bloom, a matte, peachy coral shade, adds a pop of color to the palette, as well as Noir, which adds a classic “ultra-matte” black shade, which can be used to line or perfect a classic smokey eye. And these shades look absolutely GORGEOUS, on ANY skin tone. Especially darker skin tones; The pigment-packed nudes, golds, and bronzes POP on darker to Ebony skin tones, and look absolutely FLAWLESS on those skin shades.

Melt Cosmetics’ GEMINI Eyeshadow Palette

$58

http://www.meltcosmetics.com

 

 

Screen Shot 2018-05-29 at 7.33.10 PM

 

Melt Cosmetics’ GEMINI Eyeshadow Palette, isn’t as brand new, as other palettes and collections on this list, but it’s still just as worthy for all the attention; especially when it comes to Autumn/Winter 2018. GEMINI Eyeshadow Palette was SOLD OUT, for a few months, after it’s initial release, earlier this year, which kind of broke my heart. On apps like Mercari and Poshmark, brand new GEMINI Eyeshadow Palettes, were going for $150 – $300, just for ONE, which proves it’s validity to the world of cosmetics. But now, that GEMINI is FINALLY restocked, you can purchase one of these beauty’s, which contains ten, pigment packed, HUGE eyeshadow pans, which are over double the size of Urban Decay’s Naked(s) eyeshadow pans! And the color payoff?? Absolutely INSANE.

 

Screen Shot 2018-05-29 at 7.31.08 PM

 

Every shade looks beautiful on ANY skin tone, but the Olive Green shades, Leo, Goalz, and Fire OG, which come in matte, satin, and glitter based finishes, are perfect for Fall 2018, and make Brown/Hazel Eyes, POP, and the shades are perfect for medium to deep skin tones.  The matte shade Mochi, which is a true Mustard, looks GORGEOUS on Dark to Ebony skin tones, as well as Olive-toned skin shades. Luna (matte), Gemini (glitter), and Lorelei (matte), accentuate Brown, Hazel, Blue and Green eyes, and look beautiful on Fair to Ebony skin tones; and the color payoff is amazing, with each and every pigment packed shade.  The first five eyeshadow shades are absolutely perfect for Daytime looks for Lighter skin tones, as well as the last five shades being perfect for Daytime looks for Darker skin shades, and vice versa for Nighttime looks.

melt-cosmetics_gemini_002_palette

melt-cosmetics_gemini_004_palette

Each shade melts into one another, and blend like a dream. The creamy and velvety  textures of each color, are easy to blend out, or layer on for more intensity. You get full coverage with just one swipe, but the colors are buildable and you will get very intense color payoff, when layering on. The colors stay put, and when layered upon an eyeshadow primer or a liquid foundation used as a primer, the color payoff is even more intense, which is great because a little goes a long way; plus the pan sizes are HUGE, so you definitely get your money’s worth.

Hurry up and buy one before they sell out, AGAIN! Seriously. It’s SO worth it.

 

 

 

 

Too Faced Holiday Collection: The Gingerbread Spice Palette

$49

http://www.toofaced.com

 

Too-Faced-Gingerbread-Spice-Palette

 

I know I can always count on Too Faced, to produce gorgeous eyeshadow hues, lash plumping mascara’s, long lasting liquid lipsticks, along with ADORABLE packaging; probably the most adorable packaging out of ANY Beauty Brand… And this year’s Holiday Collection, really put on the glitz and glam, and will grab even the most drab of color-palette tastes, attention! The Gingerbread Spice Eyeshadow Palette, in particular, is The Holiday Collection’s most popular item, and has SOLD OUT TWICE, since being released, a few weeks ago, which is a big win for Too Faced.

too-faced_gingerbread-spice_001_palette

Too Faced Gingerbread Spice Eyeshadow Palette, is a collection of eighteen eyeshadows, that include nudes, pinks, browns, purples, and a muted orange satin finish shade (Spice Is Nice), and a glitter based Olive Green shade (Spice Of Life). One of my favorite shades, Reindeer Paws (matte),  is one of the richest, and truest Chocolate Brown shades I’ve ever seen, and looks absolutely flawless when applied. You can create gorgeous Daytime looks, add pops of color, or go all out and create a bold, colorful, statement eye look, that will turn heads at any Holiday Party.

 

90690_23

 

Each shade is all skin tone friendly, and the color payoff is rich and beautiful. The colors can be layered on for intensity, or blended out for a more natural look, with ease, and any good eyeshadow brush can pick up the pigments extremely well. The colors apply evenly, and there’s zero lack of uneven coverage, with every shade. Too Faced also includes several shades for highlighting ANY skin shade’s brow bone, which is something that eyeshadow palettes these day’s have been lacking.

Great Job, Too Faced! We ABSOLUTELY ❤ The Gingerbread Spice Eyeshadow Palette!

KKW Beauty’s Classic Collection: The Classic Eyeshadow Palette & Peach Creme Lipsticks & Liners

Hello, Beauties!

KKW (Kim Kardashian West) Beauty, dropped her brand new Classic Collection, on July 27th, and of course, me being the makeup junkie that I am, purchased it as soon as it went on sale. And even though I featured KKW Beauty’s Classic Palette, it in my SUMMER *MUST HAVES* POST, I decided to go into more detail about the eyeshadow palette, and of course, review KKW Beauty’s new Peach Creme’ Lipstick & Lip Liner, which is a part of KKW Beauty’s Classic Collection. Because honestly, this is one of KKW Beauty’s BEST makeup launches to date.

IMG_2091_64d8c9dd-80bb-4d3d-ad00-025ad471dc84_900x

When I think of Kim Kardashian West, aside from a thick booty and shameless reality television stunts (I still love you, KKW), nude lipsticks, contouring, and nude makeup looks come to mind; so who better than KKW, herself, to release a self named makeup company, KKW Beauty, full of nude lipsticks, contouring kits, nude glosses, nude liners, and of course, nude (neutral) eyeshadow palettes. And of course, the website, packaging, shipping materials, and color scheme, along with all of the beauty products she has released, all go along the lines of NUDE. And YES, KKW Beauty (www.kkwbeauty.com) also sells KKW by Kylie Cosmetics Creme Lipsticks, in the original set of four, (Kimmie, Kimberly, Kim, & KiKi), on the site, as well, which is one of my favorite collections that Kylie Cosmetics has ever released, along with millions of other makeup lovers around the globe. Which I’m sure is why KKW Beauty was started in the first place; KKW, I’m sure, realized that the instant success of her collection that Kylie Cosmetics released, could be re-lived over and over, by launching her own line of makeup.

Di53_zmUYAAxEnT

Smart business move, girl. But I wonder what Kylie thinks about it?? I’m sure it’s no dirt off her shoulder, considering that Kylie Cosmetics, has raised Kylie Jenner to the top of the Kardashian/Jenner family’s Net Worth, which is now $900 MILLION…. YES; she’s almost a billionaire. And her makeup company is completely self owned/created, so Kylie see’s all of the cashflow that goes in an out of her business. KKW; herself AND KKW Beauty, is only worth $350 Million; but I’m sure that’s not really a struggle for Kim KW…. as far as we know. But maybe, KKW Beauty could catch up to the success of Kylie Cosmetics– as long as KKW Beauty keeps releasing products and collections, like KKW Beauty’s Classic Collection, that is. Because KKW Beauty’s Classic Collection, is truly immaculate! From formulation to pigmentation, and all skin tone friendly hues of eyeshadows, lipsticks, and liners, KKW Beauty’s Classic Collection, just might be the key, that unlocks the door to upping KKW Beauty’s success, along with inspiring KKW Beauty, to keep releasing collections that are as solid as KKW Beauty’s Classic Collection! 

So… here’s the 101 on KKW Beauty’s Classic Collection;

The matte shades are perfect for blending the shimmer shades out in to each other, creating an easy, blend-able, and Classic KKW, eyeshadow application.

This color palette is truly a nude/neutral color lover’s dream, with each shade containing perfectly pigmented hues, that look gorgeous on warm, cool, or neutral skin tones, so there’s no need to worry whether the colors look flattering on you or not, because these truly are made, with every skin tone/shade or color in mind. If you have deep dark, or ebony skin tones, the lighter and shimmer based shades will POP, and you can create a truly stunning, and head turning eyeshadow look. Or you can use the neutral, darker shades, for a more natural look, for day time. And if you have a lighter to medium skin tone, the darker neutrals can be used for a perfectly hued smokey eye, and add a pop of shimmer for a more creative and high fashion/glam eyeshadow look. The assortment of colors are truly stunning. And the best part? The Classic Eyeshadow Palette, and the Peach Creme Lipsticks and Lip Liners, compliment each other, extremely well. You can create a natural or more intense, glamorous look, with each and every lip color, and eyeshadow shade option.

Mix it up, and have some fun.

The eyeshadows are highly pigmented, so a little goes a long way, which is one of the things I really do appreciate, about this beautiful eyeshadow palette. The formula is extremely creamy, though it’s a powder, so it picks up with an eyeshadow brush, very well. There is minimal fallout, and you can spritz a good makeup setting spray on your eyeshadow brush, and wear these formula’s as cream/wet eyeshadows, for those of you who want a more vivid, or brighter eyeshadow application, or look. They last well thoughout the workday or through a night out, and there’s no need for a lot of touching up, though the brow bone highlighting color (Fade– ironic isn’t it?) does seem to truly “fade” and touch ups are needed; so make sure you use a good setting spray, or apply an eyeshadow primer, (I just apply liquid foundation on my lids) before application.

*NOTE*

Pat McGrath (The Queen Mother of Makeup Artistry), gives some professional makeup artistry tips to Glamour Magazine, and applying liquid or cream foundation, to your eyes AND lips, is one of her go-to tricks; this preps your face for eyeshadow AND lipstick application, without having to apply a lipstick or eyeshadow primer, which can actually (and this is MY personal observation) disturb your foundation application after it’s set, due to adding yet, another layer of product on your face, which in turn, costs more money, AND takes more time, to create an effective, long lasting, eyeshadow and lipstick application. And adding another liquid or cream product on top of already set foundation, can cause lines, cakey-ness, and it can also “crack” your eyeshadow due to over-drying, once the primer loses it’s moisturizing properties throughout the day….  So why not prep and prime all in one initial application? USE YOUR LIQUID FOUNDATION AS YOUR PRIMER.

Quick, Easy, & Effective. 

You’re welcome.

Peach Creme Lipsticks + Lip Liners

Lipstick- $18 

Lip Liner- $12

The new, Peach Creme Lipsticks, & Lip Liners, are a step away from KKW’s go-to nude hues, which is a refreshing and innovative addition, to KKW Beauty. The peachy hues aren’t super crazy, and they are similar, to KKW Beauty’s nudes, but they definitely have that extra pop of color, that millions of Beauties love, and continue to purchase, from sister Kylie’s, Kylie Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick/Creme Lipstick lines. And I definitely feel like the major success, Kylie Cosmetics has had, and continues to have, probably inspired KKW Beauty’s Peach Creme Lipsticks & Lip Liners.

Just sayin’.

C9E7C8BB0A9351244111A54BA3C444A1_2310_553475

 

Colors (From Left To Right Including Lipliners):

  • Peach 1- Light Peach
  • Peach 2- Pinky Peach
  • Peach 3- Mid-Tone Coral
  • Peach 4- Burnt Red

 

Anyways…. KKW Beauty’s Peach Creme Lipsticks & Lip Liners, come in four different shades; Peach 1- which is a light peach, Peach 2- which is a pinky peach, Peach 3- which is a mid-tone coral, and Peach 4- which is a burnt red. All four matching Peach Creme Lip Liners, come in the exact same shades, which is great for adding extra color and depth to your lips, along with more wear-time, before lipstick application. The formula is true to it’s name; definitely creamy, and has “lip quenching oils and extracts” to moisturize and keep your lips from drying out. This is one of the things I truly do appreciate from KKW Beauty; all of her Creme Lipstick formulas (including her KKW by Kylie Cosmetics Creme Liquid Lipstick collab) are truly creamy, and they NEVER dry out your lips. KKW probably struggles with dry lips (as do I), and liquid matte lipsticks can really dry out my lips, so it’s nice to have an array of nude lipstick options, that aren’t liquid matte formulas.

DjSl32FUYAABn7f

All four shades are extremely flattering on all skin tones, and each shade can be worn, and still look flattering, no matter what skin tone/shade, you happen to be- Peach 4, looks beautiful on light skin tones, and Peach 1, looks gorgeous on very dark, to ebony skin tones, etc. etc. etc. Peach is one of those colors that is universally flattering, and even with the slim array of shades (only four)  that KKW Beauty has provided, each hue is pigmented just right, which is why KKW Beauty only released four shades.

image_89e04e4d-cc77-437b-b437-27fcea709bd0_1024x1024

Each shade provides highly pigmented, opaque, and long-lasting color payoff. With just one swipe, you get the color that you see; and even though cream formulas don’t last as long as liquid formulas, this formula isn’t “overly creamy”, and it doesn’t glide on like a lot of other cream formulas lipsticks do, which means it won’t fade off, or come off easily.  And although this formula feels very matte while applying it, it has a little sheen in the finish, so it’s not completely matte. And I don’t dare say it’s a satin finish, because satin lipsticks aren’t as pigmented and opaque, as the KKW Beauty’s Peach Creme Lipsticks & Lip Liners. This is due to the extracts and oils, in the formula, which are extremely moisturizing, but because of the high pigment in each shade, the formula feels more matte. Could this be the perfect cream lipstick formula?? Matte but not chalky or over-drying… Moisturizing but doesn’t slide off… And has great wear-time?? I’d say YES. This is one of my new favorite formulas out there. And I’m a Lipstick JUNKIE. So that’s saying A LOT. Now, if KKW Beauty could release this exact same formula, in a wide array of shades, like M.A.C Cosmetics provides… that would be true perfection! And a billion dollar idea for Kim Kardashian West, and KKW Beauty.

DjESVggU4AA-Umf

The KKW Beauty’s Peach Creme Lip Liners, are similar in formula, and are creamy, yet long lasting. Of course the Peach Creme Lip Liners, have a matte finish, due to their highly pigmented formula, (like most lip liners), but they aren’t chalky and they don’t tug during application- very similar to Kylie Cosmetics Lip Liners. Instead of tugging or caking like M.A.C Cosmetics Lip Pencils, these liners glide on, but still give full coverage, opaque, color payoff. And they don’t smear, or wear off, even though they are creamy. The KKW Beauty Peach Creme Lip Liners, are pretty much perfection, packaged in pencil packaging, which can be sharpened with a good eyeliner/lip liner sharpener. And best of all? A little goes a long way…

kkw-beauty-classic-collection-51.jpg

 

 

Conclusion:

I am so impressed, and so thrilled with KKW Beauty’s Classic Collection. From the highly pigmented eyeshadow formulas, to the practically perfect lipstick formulations, I can’t complain about any of these newly released, and all skin tone friendly, shade options and products. It’s definitely refreshing to add pops of peach to KKW Beauty’s, usual nude collections of lipsticks and liners. And The Classic Eyeshadow Palette?? Every makeup loving beauty NEEDS these beautiful neutral shades in their collection!

I give KKW Beauty’s Classic Collection, and Peach Creme Lipsticks & Lip Liners, 5 out of 5 stars, for function, formulation, all skin-tone flattering hues, long wear time, and having a gorgeous color assortment, for both lipstick/liner, and eyeshadows!

Great job, KKW Beauty!

Product Of The Day: Huda Beauty #FauxFilter Foundation

Hello, Beauties!

Today I’d like to talk about my pick for Product of the Day, which is Huda Beauty’s #FauxFilter Foundation; ($40 http://www.shophudabeauty.com or http://www.sephora.coman amazingly lightweight, full coverage foundation, which is long wearing, and covers imperfections with ease. And best of all? It has a wide shade selection, with cool, warm, and neutral tone options, along with an array of other beneficial features.

So let’s discuss…

22427458_712701382269564_8071606269292576768_n

The Beauty Breakdown:

Huda Beauty is one of the industry’s leading makeup brands, that was started by none other than beauty entrepreneur and makeup artist, Huda Kattan, and started out with gorgeous, extremely pigmented, and high impact color eyeshadow palettes, like the Desert Dusk Eyeshadow Palette, and Rose Gold REMASTERED Eyeshadow Palette, along with an array of lashes, liquid lipsticks, lip liners, and absolutely GORGEOUS, highlighter palettes, that are ON POINT, when it comes to ingredients, formulations, and high pigmentations. So when Huda Beauty released a full coverage, skin perfecting, liquid foundation, EVERYONE was expecting the Holy Grail of all liquid foundations; and OMG, did Huda Beauty ever deliver! She formulated a truly amazing and flawless product formula, with long wearing properties, high coverage pigmentation, a lightweight texture, and leaves you with nothing but a “velvety matte” finish, which is true to it’s claim. And the name of this liquid, full coverage miracle is, #FauxFilter Foundation. 

 

Huda Beauty’s #FauxFilter Foundation comes in a glass-like, frosted plastic bottle, with a pump applicator to maximize product application control. A black cap houses the pump, to keep bacteria out and skin enhancing ingredients in; Light and oxygen will break down skin enhancing properties, until they are almost non-existent when they are housed in a twist off style applicator, so it’s important that the formula is protected with a pump style applicator. It also keeps bacteria out which is great for those who struggle with blemish and acne problems. So Huda Beauty’s founder and creator, Huda Kattan, knows what she’s doing when it comes to foundation packaging, and preserving skin enhancing ingredients.

HUDA-BEAUTY-FauxFilter-Foundation

The shade selection provided, has 30 different shades, which range from extremely fair, to extremely rich; Warm, Neutral, and Cool skin tones are all catered to, and if you have an “in between” skin color, you can purchase a lighter color to lighten a shade, or a darker color, to deepen the shade; just mix the shades together on a mixing palette, with a beauty spatula, or clean, sanitized hands, and you will get the perfect match. But to be honest, I have an extremely difficult time finding the perfect shade, and I was able to find the perfect shade, without mixing, or adding drops of pigment, so finding your perfect shade is a very convenient and easy. And the best part? The formula works for ALL skin types.

foundation-spectrum-21-copy-2-1

Huda Beauty’s founder and creator, Huda Kattan, advises on Huda Beauty’s website, (http://www.shophudabeauty.com), that #FauxFilter Foundation, works best if you apply and prime your skin, with Huda Beauty’s Complexion Perfection Pre-Makeup Base, on clean and dry skin, before foundation application. Priming your skin before foundation application, can extend wear time, moisturize, and prep your skin. Huda Kattan, also advises that applying #FauxFilter Foundation with Huda Beauty’s Buff & Blend, synthetic foundation brush, will work best for every coverage application style. BUT, I didn’t use the Complexion Perfection Pre-Makeup Base, or the Buff & Blend synthetic foundation brush, and I still got absolutely flawless results; So it just depends on what your skin type is, and if you truly need a primer to moisturize and prep skin for foundation, and how you like to apply foundation.

Features & Benefits:

  • Full coverage formula, that doesn’t cake, blends out extremely well, and melts into pores, leaving a weightless and velvet matte finish.
  • The highly pigmented formula, makes a little go a long way- you only need a dime size amount to cover your entire face, so one bottle will last you a long time!
  • The formula includes hydrating ingredients, that are good for your complexion and skin; Argan Oil and Centella Asiatica, which keeps the formula from drying out and fading throughout the day.
  • The formula is truly full coverage, and completely evens out your skin, providing coverage that most concealers provide, but without the heavy layered feeling, that most full coverage foundations and concealers leave on your skin.
  • You can mix Huda Beauty’s #Faux Filter Foundation, with Huda Beauty’s Complexion Perfection Pre-Makeup Base, which can blend the formula down for a lighter, more natural coverage, or you can use less than a dime sized amount and blend it out- either way works beautifully.
  • For heavier coverage, you can layer this foundation on, without having to worry about caking or streaking. The formula melts in to itself, no matter how much you layer on. Now that’s something that is TRULY UNIQUE, and practically non-existent, in the world of full coverage foundations; ESPECIALLY with a foundation that provides a matte finish. And there’s ZERO chalkiness in the velvety matte finish.

Baking & Setting #FauxFilter Foundation:

This foundation has a finish, where the coverage you receive, doesn’t even look like you need a setting powder, and you don’t even need a foundation powder to give you extra coverage- BUT if you have oily skin, or oily combination skin, I definitely suggest using a translucent setting powder, to lock in the coverage and keep the formula from fading- just for long wearing “insurance”. And even if you have dry skin, the hydrating properties keep the formula from over drying- so set this foundation with a setting powder, and use a hydrating makeup setting spray to add extra moisture to keep your face hydrated throughout the day.

HudaBeautyEasyBakeSettingPowderDYP

Huda Beauty also has a phenomenal, Easy Bake Loose Powder, that goes hand in hand with her #FauxFilter Foundation, for easy baking and setting techniques, to keep your face of foundation FLAWLESS, all day. The velvety matte finish, doesn’t over-dry, so the finish feels a little “tacky” (but not in a bad way) before setting it; which creates the absolute perfect canvas for baking and setting powders to adhere to. And since setting and baking powders have an extremely velvety and light texture to them, they won’t cake like a foundation powder will; especially with the hydrated and velvety matte finish this foundation provides.  And since the coverage and formula is literally, fade proof, the coverage won’t fade out or break down after it dries, like a lot of other foundations do, so your face will be completely perfected, and your skin tone will be 100% even.

Huda-Beauty-2018-Easy-Bake-Loose-Powder-4112475387-1531993888648

Take a setting powder or baking brush, (or a Beauty Blender which will help “pack” the baking or brightening powder while using the baking technique) and bake your foundation under your eyes, above your cheekbones, on the tip and across the ridge of your nose, in between your brows, and right above the middle of your brows on your forehead, and lastly, on your chin. CAKE those areas with brightening or baking powder, and wait 5 minutes; your body heat will literally, “bake” the brightening or baking powder onto your skin, and then brush off any extra powder after 5 minutes. Then set the rest of your face with a translucent setting powder.

A Day With Huda Beauty’s #FauxFilter Foundation:

The shade I ordered on http://www.shophudabeauty.com, is called, Shortbread (200B), which is the perfect shade for my skin. My body is definitely a warmer skin tone, but my face is more of a neutral skin tone, due to never tanning my face, and always having full coverage + broad spectrum SPF foundations on my face. I have problems with a little bit of redness on my cheeks and nose, (which redness means you should use a warm shade of foundation) BUT I have slightly visible dark circles under my eyes, which seem to cast cooler shades on my bare complexion. So, finding a perfect shade of foundation, that doesn’t clash with my warmer skin tones on my body, is tough to say in the least. But surprisingly, Shortbread (200B) is the absolute perfect shade for me.

I did not use a primer, or a foundation brush, to apply #FauxFilter Foundation; I used my freshly washed and sanitized hands, which allows for more control over application, and lets me “press” the foundation into my pores, which provides a smooth, non-cakey, and even application. The pump style applicator prevented wasted product, and a dime sized amount of product, provides the perfect amount for one, full coverage, application of product. I dotted an even amount of product on each of my cheeks, chin, forehead, and nose, and blended the velvety and lightweight foundation out onto my entire face, and blended it out on to the top of my neck. I was utterly SHOCKED that this foundation formula, provided me with a TRUE full coverage application, because the texture is so light, and liquid-y. I didn’t expect to receive full coverage with just one layer, but I did. So at that point, I already had fallen in love with the formula. Usually I have to layer on foundations, and mix, and conceal, which takes time, and money. But with this foundation, application was quick and easy.

101317-huda-beauty-lead

A lot of full coverage foundation formulas are heavy, and they take some time to “set” (excluding Kat Von D’s Lock It Foundation, which sets extremely fast, and is hard to work with after it sets). Huda Beauty’s #FauxFilter Foundation, “sets” extremely fast, but is still extremely workable and flexible when it comes to layering on more foundation for extra coverage under my eyes, which honestly, I didn’t need to layer on more because the formula was already full coverage, but for reviewing purposes, I layered on more just to see how workable and how well I was able to blend and layer the foundation formula; and the results were AMAZING. Even though Huda Beauty’s #FauxFilter Foundation, was already set and dry on my face, (and note that this was before applying baking and setting powder), I was able to layer on more product for extra coverage, without disturbing the original foundation layer. The formula melted and blended into itself, and there was ZERO product layering application lines, or caking.

As far as wear time, fading, and setting and baking, goes, this foundation lasted all night, and didn’t budge, or fade for the entire night out; and please note, that I’m in Salt Lake City, where temperatures are well over 95 degrees until the sun sets everyday, and sweating, humidity, and dry air, all contribute to foundation fading and wear time problems. But this foundation lasted all night, never dulled down, and since I baked, set, contoured, and bronzed, along with applying MAC Fix+ Goldlite Makeup Setting Spray,  my skin stayed bright, didn’t dull down, and didn’t fade out; even at a crowded show, where temperatures were extremely warm. So all in all, this foundation did it’s job, effortlessly, without hassle, and without having to touch up or “blot” throughout the evening.

Okay…. This TRULY IS, the Holy Grail, of foundations!

Conclusion:

The thing that I love most about Huda Beauty’s #FauxFilter Foundation, is that there are ZERO downsides to this foundation. I love everything about this foundation, and that’s why I chose this product, to feature it as our Product of the Day.  It’s truly one of a kind, and it’s true to it’s claims, which is an extremely hard thing to find in a sea of beauty products, that over promise and under-deliver.

I give Huda Beauty’s #FauxFilter Foundation, 5 out of 5 stars. This foundation is a truly exceptional product, that NEEDS to be in your everyday makeup application routine. And I know that $40 seems a little high on the price scale for a product that is such a staple in every beauty’s makeup routine, BUT,  a little goes a long way, which saves product, which in turn saves you money. So just because this foundation is a little high in price, doesn’t mean that you won’t be saving money AND time, in the bigger picture.

Bravo, Huda Beauty!

 

Have a Fab & Fresh Day, Beauties!

Fab & Fresh Beauty *MUST HAVES*: JUNE/JULY EDITION.

Hello, Beauties!

I hope you are all enjoying your Summer as much as I have! One of my favorite things about Summer, is the makeup looks that come along with the season; the natural, golden tans, bronze/shimmery contours and blushes, nude lips, golden face highlighters, and beach waves. It’s amazing how much the Sun, can highlight (literally) our outer beauty, from the Sun kissing it’s way into our hair, skin, and faces…

BUT, with that being said, make sure you’re always using enough SPF, because the Sun, can be extremely hard on your skin and your hair; So slather on a tanning oil that includes SPF protection in it; use a foundation or mineral sunscreen that has BROAD SPECTRUM SPF Sunscreen in it, make sure you’re using a good heat protectant in your hair, before you’re in the Sun (try CHI’s “Iron Guard” Heat Protecting Spray), and use a youth repairing serum (like Kevin Murphy’s “Young Again”) that includes an SPF and Sun damage repairing ingredients in it. Now that I’ve covered the basics of skin, hair, and face protection for Summer, let’s get down to business!

Almost every Beauty Brand on the market, releases collections, collaborations, and Summer themed product lines, that go hand in hand with Summer. And for some reason, the Beauty Industry’s Summer Beauty Launches are ALWAYS my absolute favorite (because I’m a #mermaid… DUH)!! So here are my new favorite *MUST HAVE* products that have recently been released in the months of June and July!

Tarte Rainforest Of The Sea SIZZLE PALETTE is another hit (which is one of many) for Beauty Brand, Tarte. Tarte has been releasing some incredibly fun and gorgeous products and palettes this past year, and with the release of Shape Tape Contouring Concealer and Shape Tape Hydrating/Matte Foundation, Tarte is becoming more of a staple Beauty Brand, for millions of Beauty Babes across the Globe. So it’s no surprise that Tarte’s Rainforest Of The Sea Sizzle Palette, is already selling like crazy, even though it was just recently released. Tarte has found it’s niche in the Beauty Industry, as the industry’s “Go To” for “High Performance Naturals”. On Tarte’s website, the Sizzle Palette is “Powered by: Coconut Oil and Vitamin E Nourish, and Marine Plants Soothe”…. Whatever that means. But you get the picture. This 8 pan eyeshadow palette, is all shimmer based, so if you aren’t big on shimmer, then this palette probably isn’t for you. BUT it’s Summer; and Summer is the romping ground for shimmer based eyeshadows.

BEAUTYBLENDER

Bounce Liquid Whip Long Wear Foundation

$40 http://www.sephora.com

If you got the chance to purchase BEAUTYBLENDER Bounce Liquid Whip Long Wear Foundation, then consider yourself lucky. Sephora is completely SOLD OUT, except for shades, 3.1, 3.15, 3.4, 3.7, 4.1, 4.2, 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6, and 4.7, which are all yellow based shades, and shades for darker skin tones. And the one thing you need to know about this foundation, is that matching it to your skin tone, IN STORE, is the most important thing you need to do… BUT, if you happened to purchase the right shade, then this foundation is a “full coverage foundation, with a matte finish, for all skin types”. It’s best applied with a BEAUTYBLENDER, (imagine that), and provides full coverage that “you can’t see at all”. But if you have the wrong shade, you WILL be able to see it, so if I were you, I’d wait until Sephora has a restock IN STORES, so you can find your perfect shade. Other than the whole “shade matching crisis”, this foundation is a very good option for a full coverage foundation, for people that don’t particularly like full coverage formulas. Since it’s a little high on the price scale, I’d definitely wait to purchase it, until you find your perfect shade. It’s also buildable, and doesn’t cake, when builded upon. It also provides 24 Hour wear time, (but PLEASE do NOT wear foundation for 24 hours… it’s SO BAD for your skin) so this is perfect for Summer, considering there are lots of activities that can ruin, melt off, and crease your foundation. So a long wearing foundation is KEY to keeping your makeup perfected on these hot AF Summer days.

Conclusion:

Summer is a time for FUN. So experimenting with bright colored eyeshadow, is a MUST. Bronzing your already sun kissed skin is a staple for Summertime Makeup, and shimmer is EVERYTHING; especially golden hued shimmer highlighters and bronzers. These products will have you on your way to being the QUEEN of the Bronzed and The Beautiful, and you’ll be busy perfecting your selfie game to a Perfect 10.

I did NOT mention Fenty Beauty in this post, because I reviewed and shared Fenty Beauty’s Summer 2018 Launch, in my Sephora Lab, post. Check out Fenty Beauty in my previous posts!! I love you, Rihanna!!

PAT McGRATH LABS. An “EVERYTHING” Review, PRE-Mixed and Brought To You, With A Bit of MEHRON MIXING LIQUID….

Hello, Beauties!

It’s a Monday morning in May, and pink and gold sequins are scattered across my kitchen counter. Myself being the glitter/sparkle enthusiast that I am, is loving every minute of opening up my new, Pat McGrath Liquid Lust 004 Lab in “Flesh”, and my Pat McGrath Metalmorphasis 005 “Everything Kit”. The Mehron Mixing Liquid, is staring up at me, waiting to be “metal-ized” and mixed with Pat McGrath’s 005 Pigments, in Gold, Copper, Bronze, and Silver. Pat McGrath’s “Flesh Microfone Glitter” is practically begging me to apply it over one of her creamy “Flesh 1 or 2” Lipsticks that come in the Lust 004 Kit, and the “Gold Metallic Pigment” is eagerly waiting to “foil-ize” on to my lips with the “Clear Vinyl Gloss”.

http://www.thebeautylookbook.com

Where should I even start?! The possibilities seemed endless, and the mix-in combinations are plentiful. Just the products themselves, like the cream shadows, lipsticks, and glosses, are already gorgeous on their own. And adding even more pigment, glitter, and gorgeousness is almost too exciting in itself, because this is the kind of makeup regimen that I always have craved, and dreamt about, because it gets exhausting experimenting with pigments and certain mixing liquids, etc. and wondering if they will compliment each other, or even adhere to one another, due to ingredients like silicone, oil, and water,   that can actually cancel each other out…. BUT PAT McGRATH DID ALL THE EXPERIMENTING FOR MAKEUP MIXING, FOR US, AND PACKAGED THE PRODUCTS UP IN A PRETTY, LITTLE, SEQUIN FILLED BAG, AND DELIVERED IT RIGHT TO OUR DOORSTEPS.

There’s no doubt that Pat McGrath Labs is one of the most unique, high fashion, and science+artistry based, makeup artists/brands in the world. And now, her self named makeup company, is one of the best beauty brands in the industry. Haven’t heard of Pat McGrath?? Well let me tell you how important this game changing, brilliant, makeup artist turned entrepreneur, actually is…

Pat-McGrath-Labs

Pat McGrath is said to be one of the most important, if not the most important, makeup artist in the world. Her high fashion masterpieces, and insanely incredible makeup artistry skills, bring me to silence. She’s the da Vinci of MUA’s, and she’s worked her ass off to get where she’s at. She’s done EVERYONE who is ANYONE’S (celeb/model-wise) makeup for multiple high fashion magazine covers, (W, Vogue, In Style, etc.) and is the makeup artist who basically runs the entire makeup artistry department, behind the scenes, at Fashion Week, for all of the big named designers.

W Magazine’s Rihanna Pictorial Spread: Makeup By Pat McGrath

Super Model’s call her “Mother”; which is probably why her self made makeup line features Eyeshadow Palettes called Mothership, and Mthrshp, 1, 2, & 3. She’s also directed makeup line launches for High Fashion Brands, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, and Giorgio Armani. So last year, when she launched her self named makeup line, Pat McGrath Labs, it’s no surprise that her Limited Release LABS, are selling out, and her products are becoming every Beauty Buff’s go to, for high color payoff, foil-ized lips, and glitter looks that actually STAY in place.

Below I’ve posted and reviewed some of my favorite Pat McGrath Labs products, Kits, and Labs, and I’m here to let you know that Pat McGrath Labs, is the industry’s newest makeup line, that is all about artistry, science, and creating your own High Fashion masterpieces.

Thank you, Mother.

Amen.

 

PAT McGRATH LABS.

 

LABS.

Pat McGrath offers her one of a kind, Labs that come with everything to mix, experiment, and play with pigments, glitters, creams, metallic powders, to create glosses, lip colors, eyeshadows, lip toppers, foil shadows, etc. It’s the ultimate way for true creative minds, and artists, to experiment with customizing, and not having to worry about wasting product on a mixer that’s not right for said product. Her Labs are always Limited Release, and they ALWAYS SELL OUT! So make sure you sign up for Pat McGrath’s Newsletters, New Product Alerts, and Restock Alerts with your email address on http://www.patmcgrath.com!!

Her eye Labs come with two to eight Creams and Pigments (depending on which Lab you purchase, Mehron Mixing Liquid, which is a clear liquid, that you can use to mix and apply pigments and shadows with, to “foil-ize” and “metal-ize” your eye creams, pigments, and shadows that come in the Labs, as well as her famous, Black Duel Ended Marker, that is literally, a “marker” style liquid eyeliner, that has two different tips; one pointed, and one thin and flat, that gives you ultimate precision, when applying liquid eyeliner.

Her lip Labs come with two to six different Lipsticks (depending on which Lab you purchase), Clear Vinyl Gloss, which is used to mix with the Metallic Pigment(s) that come in your Lab, one to three Metallic Pigments, and one to three Glitters, that can be topped onto the Lipstick, and you can create an effortless, glittered lip. The Clear Vinyl Gloss, literally has a vinyl looking, and feeling finish, that can be used alone, or with the products that come in the Lab. MAKE SURE you always use a Lip Brush, to apply the Clear Vinyl Gloss, because you don’t want any pigment, glitter, or lipstick to get into the gloss itself, because you want the gloss to stay clear, to avoid any color or formula changes.

 

PAT McGRATH LABS.

BATCH: LUST 004

VERSION: FLESH

FIRST EDITION/LIMITED RELEASE

Colours Available:

  • Flesh
  • Blood Wine
  • Vermillion Venom

 

Pat-Mcgrath-Labs-Lust-Lipstick-Set
http://www.patmcgrath.com

CONTENTS:

  • CLEAR VINYL GLOSS
  • FLESH MICROFONE GLITTER
  • GOLD METALLIC PIGMENT
  • FLESH 1 LIPSTICK
  • FLESH 2 LIPSTICK

Mixing your own colors, pigments, glitters, and foil lipstick/glosses is like a science experiment brought to you by, Barbie. You can apply either of the lipstick singles and wear them alone, or you can top them with Microfone Glitter (in whichever color you decide to order, OR you can get them ALL in the Lust 004 EVERYTHING KIT.). Since I went with the LUST 004 FLESH LAB, I will explain the application process exemplifying those specific colors. BUT the application process is the same, for each product and color from whichever LAB. you decide to go with. 

FLESH 1, is a true nude, which is beautiful on EVERY skin shade. It doesn’t wash you out or look grey, and it compliments light to ebony skin tones. FLESH 2, is a mauve-y nude, that also compliments all skin shades, and is great for wanting a more pink-y based nude lip. FLESH MICROFONE GLITTER is a rose toned nude based glitter, that adheres to either FLESH 1 or FLESH 2. And it stay put all day, without having to touch up or reapply even after drinking or eating.

CLEAR VINYL GLOSS, is a clear lip gloss, that can be worn alone, or over either lipsticks.  The gloss dries and sets to a true vinyl finish, which is pretty extraordinary in itself. The shiny plastic-looking finish, is one of a kind, and if you are looking to raise the bar on your Lip Game, this is definitely the way to do it. It can also be mixed in with the GOLD METALLIC PIGMENT, to create a gorgeous, high fashion, and head turning Metallic Foil Lip, that is truly metallic. The gloss and the pigment mix together like a dream, and you can add more pigment for a bolder, brighter, and opaque metallic coverage.

TIP: I tried mixing the MICROFONE GLITTER with the CLEAR VINYL GLOSS, and it didn’t turn out the way I thought it would; the glitter is too grainy for the gloss, and it takes away the vinyl look that the gloss is meant to provide. If you do want to use the glitter and gloss together, apply the gloss to your lips first, and then apply the glitter on top of the gloss, and the glitter will adhere to the gloss just fine. Just don’t mix them together before application. BUT you CAN mix in the METALLIC PIGMENT with the gloss before application. The pigment doesn’t effect the gloss’ finish or formula.

  • COPPER 005 CREAM
  • COPPER 005 PIGMENT

  • SILVER 005 PIGMENT

The METALMORPHISIS 005 LAB, is a makeup artists DREAM. There are so many different options (especially in the METALMORPHISIS 005 EVERYTHING LAB, which comes with every color listed above). But if you decide to just go with a single LAB, there are still so many finishes and pigments to play with, mix, and create.

Each LAB comes with one of the above mentioned colors in two different formulas; For example, it comes with a COPPER 005 PIGMENT, which can be worn alone, or mixed with the MEHRON MIXING LIQUID, which is included in the LAB. The MEHRON MIXING LIQUID is a clear liquid, that is used to adhere, mix, accentuate pigments and creams, and create liquid or cream pigments, shadows, liners, etc. When mixed with the pigment, you can create a long lasting metallic/cream eyeshadow, or liquid liner. Then it comes with a COPPER 005 CREAM, which can also be used alone or mixed with the MEHRON MIXING LIQUID, to create a metallic, foil finished, creamier, longer lasting eyeshadow. You can break down the cream or the pigment even more, by adding more mixing liquid, and make a gorgeous, foil finished liquid eyeliner, liquid eyeshadow, and you can even go as far as making a cosmetic paint to create Festival Makeup Looks, Runway Looks, or High Fashion Editorial Looks, that won’t budge, and lasts over 24 hours (although I don’t recommend wearing makeup this long, but I did sleep in it to find out about the wear time). It also comes with a BLACK DUEL ENDED MARKER, which is a liquid eyeliner pen/marker; one tip comes to a fine point, and the other tip is pointed and triangular, and comes to a flat end. It’s a #WingedEyelinerWednesday wearer’s perfect solution for the perfect liquid liner application, and is extremely easy to apply.

LuxeTrance Lipstick is an ultra pigmented, creamy, and long wearing lipstick, that comes in a wide variety of colors, that are separated into 4 different color categories. If you love nudes, reds, darks, or brights, there are several different options.

You can wear them alone, under a gloss, over a PermaGel Ultra Lip Pencil, (or any lip pencil, for that matter), or pair colors together for a beautiful ombre’ effect. The creamy, satin finished, colour melts into lips, and into one another, making it perfect for lip contouring, or an ombre’ effect, lip look.

It’s long wearing, but still moisturizing, and you don’t have to worry about the color caking, cracking, or drying out your lips. LuxeTrance leaves a gorgeous satin finish, that’s still long wearing, and easy to touch up on the go.

MatteTrance Lipstick is an ultra-pigmented, matte finished, long wearing lipstick. The matte finish makes for a longer wear time, than the LuxeTrance Lipstick, even though the LuxeTrance Lipstick, is extremely long wearing, as well. The colors are separated in to 3 different color categories, and has a wide variety of color options.

For those of you who prefer liquid lipsticks, due to their long wearing capabilities, but hate the way they dry out your lips, cake, and crack, MatteTrance Lipstick is the PERFECT option for you. It’s highly pigmented, and gives you opaque lip coverage in just one swipe, but it doesn’t permanently dry, like liquid lipsticks do, so touch ups are easy, and you don’t have to worry about the formula caking or cracking.

You can pair MatteTrance Lipstick with PermaGel Lipliner, or any lip liner for that matter. You can wear it under gloss, over lip liner, or alone, to get full coverage color, that lasts all day. Best of all, you see what you get, when it comes to choosing your perfect/favorite color(s).

PermaGel Ultra Lip Pencils are the best of the best. The creamy, highly pigmented gel formula glides onto lips, without tugging, and without having to sharpen it before every use, due to it’s high color payoff.  It’s long wearing, blendable, and comes in an array of different shades that can be worn alone, paired with your favorite lipstick, or worn under a gloss.

The formula is ultra creamy, and since it’s a “gel” formula, it’s extremely long wearing. The texture is extremely similar to Kylie Cosmetics Lip Liners, and MAC Cosmetics Pro Lip Pencils, but the wear time is almost triple the amount of those above mentioned, lip liners. The color payoff is extremely high, and it’s super pigmented; You get what you see, with PermaGel Ultra Lip Pencils, and one stroke of liner provides opaque and extreme coverage.

Lust:Gloss is a “never sticky” gloss that adds dimension to your lips, and “smooths and soothes” your lips, while adding highly pigmented, shiny, color to your lips. It’s long lasting, and there are color options with or without glitter. It does NOT have a vinyl finish, like her OG Clear Vinyl Gloss, but leaves a lasting shine. And since GLOSS is kind of EVERYTHING right now, I suggest getting your hands on at least one of these chic and beautiful glosses, before they sell out! You can also purchase Pat McGrath’s Lust: Gloss EVERYTHING KIT, which comes with every single gloss pictured above.

 

 

EYES.

MTHRSHP Sublime: Eyeshadow Palettes.

Colours:

  • Bronze Ambition
  • Platinum Bronze
  • La Vie en Rose

 

SPRING-PALETTE_OnBlack_Singles_Open_Sublime_grande
http://www.patmcgrath.com

MTHRSHP Sublime: Bronze Ambition, (as well as all of the other palette options, are creamy, highly pigmented, gorgeous ready-to-wear eyeshadows, that give you full coverage color, with one swipe of a makeup brush. This is one of my favorite palettes that she offers; the colors are perfect for a natural, daytime look, or you can create a beautiful nighttime, over the top, or festival look.

These are powder eyeshadows, but they feel creamy, due to all of the pigment in each shade, and as far as the colors go; what you see is what you get. It’s very easy to go overboard on a daytime look, because these are so pigmented and gorgeous. These palettes are also NOT SOLD OUT, (yet) because they seem like they are going to be a permanent addition to Pat McGrath’s Makeup Line, but then again, that could change.

These (along with any of PAT McGRATH LABS eyeshadow palettes and colors) can also be mixed with MEHRON MIXING LIQUID (which is available in one of the METALMORPHISIS 005 LABS) and you can dip your eyeshadow brush in the liquid, and then into the eyeshadow, to create an ultra metallic or foil finished eye, or you can create a liquid liner.

Skin Fetish: is a strobing and highlighting cream that comes in a “stick” applicator, for easy application on the high points of your face, and easy strobing and contouring. They are available separately, or in a Kit, and can be applied straight from the stick, or with a brush for a lighter, softer, application. Either way, this is a formula that stays put, and has a high color payoff. And I highly recommend it.
