Often times, I get so wrapped up in all of the confusion on what makeup company is stealing another makeup company’s ideas that I decided that we are gonna try our best to just stick to the art and the makeup itself. Here are some of the new items that raised our eyebrows in the Ulta store:
I can say with confidence that these makeup companies are milking the shimmer craze right now. MAC is on the loose with their new ‘Skinfinish’ liquid-powder highlighter, available in Snowflushed and Oh Darling. With a 4.8 out of 5 stars, I was curious to know exactly what would give a single-pan highlighter such a high rating. Here is what some of the reviewers said about this product:
Oh well, isn’t this interesting! While some reviewers are saying that this product is easy to apply and lightweight, other are having difficulties with the application. Also 75% of the reviewers said that they would definitely refer this product to their friends. With this product containing glitter, it can be an automatic deal-breaker for some of us. Let’s see what else is out there:
Morphe seems to always have a foot in the race of the top new age makeup brands. Here is the new ‘8S Stellar Impact’ highlighter palette with eight stunning colors to grace our presence. From left to right we have Ultraviolet – Galactic – Comet – Meteor – Aurora – Trace – Big Bang – Mirage. While not extensively bright when looking at the palette, a simple photo from online can be a bit different. Let’s see what our peers have to say about the palette:
So far, there are only eight reviews but all have given this palette at least three stars. While no pros or cons have been documented yet, some comments from the reviewers say this product is comparable to major makeup brands, the colors are beautiful, and creamy to the touch. On the other hand, some other comments was that the product is overpriced and chunky when the product is applied. While they say the palette is pretty, no word on the pigment when the product is applied. Let’s see what’s next:
Okay, we are all friends here right? Please tell me why the hell is this four-palette bronzer $38.00?????? Not to mention it has excluded most, if not all coupons. If you don’t know, Beauty Bakerie is an independent beauty brand that is quickly growing in beauty community. While I support inde brands, some tend to be a bit out of some of our price ranges. I believe that sometimes, companies charge these prices due to process to make the product high quality. Hey, I’m not knocking Beauty Bakerie and the owner’s success. I just can’t seem to justify the price for the about of product. There are only six reviews so far:
4.5 out of 5 is a great rating, even for just six reviews so far. Some of the comments about the palette is that is blendable, highly pigmented and is better suited for tanned or darker skin. One reviewer said the product was pretty but more of a ‘ehh’ due to the glitter. This palette is also said to be great if you want that ‘chocolate gold’ look to your makeup. And our last review for the day:
Stop kidding yourself, okay? If you are big on makeup or a beauty-guru watcher on YouTube, you probably have heard about James Charles and this is his latest collaboration with Morphe. This eyeshadow palette is simple called ‘The James Charles Palette’. This palette consists of a 39 shades over five rows, consisting of mattes, shimmers, and metallics. Guess what? $39.00
Due to the high anticipation of this eyeshadow palette, there have been many reviews already established, especially since this product is exclusive to Ulta stores.
4.8 out of 5 stars is very well for a new palette and collaboration. The pros of this palette are reported to be highly pigmented, wide range of color, blendable, and long lasting. Others say that it the colors did not blend well for them, flakes off the eye, creases, and that the packaging seemed cheap.
