New products from Ulta – Sep. 2018

With all the craziness going on with the Jaclyn Hill Vault palette, I thought it would be a great to see what Ulta has new this month. But of course, we’ll get on the reviews that are finally in on Too Faced’s latest collection too (girl).¬† But let’s check out what’s new this month:

Okay, this first one I sneaked in only because its posted by Ulta, but its not available. What I’m not too sure about is why this product from Becca is showing as ‘coming soon’ when I haven’t seen many other brands practice this type of early marketing. This eyeshadow palette has a combination of mattes, a couple of metallics, but mostly shimmers. This palette is a limited edition so you might want to determine sooner than later if you want to spend the money on this palette before they sell out.

From Morphe comes a new matte lipstick collection with 5 colors (Ex (shown), Tempt, Honey, Fling, and Lust). These mattes are said to be deeply pigmented and long-wearing. We’re told that wherever this lipstick goes on your lips, it stays….and its full coverage.

I guess this is the red shade version of the matte lipstick collection. Full coverage, lock-in matte formula and deeply Pigmented. You’ll find this collection in Morphe (shown), Steamy, Tease, Dominate, and Lover. Guess Morphe is rolling with the suggestive names this time.

Okay, can’t wait to see the reviews as they come in for this new MAC product. Now, if you remember, we mentioned the Too Faced Tutti Frutti collection. Let’s see what people have to say about some of the products and its rating so far:

I did mention before that surprisingly, there were no reviews by the time we made the initial post about this collection. There are a few in which there seems to be mixed reviews so far.

This new foundation from Too Faced says that its a full coverage, dewy foundation. Its meant to give your skin that brightening glow and infused with vitamin C, watermelon, and cucumber.  Here is how the product is doing among Ulta customers:

Some positive reviews of the customers say that this product smells really good, with the smell of watermelon, and the smell gradually disappears as you blend out the product. They also said that the product is buildable and leaves the skin hydrated and looking smooth. Now, with this product, I’ve noticed that when there is a review, this product is considered really good, or really bad. There seems to be very little mediocre ratings. Some of the dissatisfied customers said that this foundation was patchy and while others said the product turned orange after application. A few reviews mentioned that the product made dry skin look greasy and had a difficult time finding a match for their shade range.

This particular collection of foundation is 20 shades, in which I am going to personally assume that Too Faced will likely add additional shades in the future. Here’s the last product that a lot of people were waiting on:

Now this setting spray was something I was personally looking forward to. While I’ve been a lover of particular setting sprays and the way they make my makeup look, I am always willing to try something new. Here is what the reviews look like for this product:

With a look at the reviews associated with this setting spray, I was a bit shocked. This ‘Dew You’ setting spray is the suggestion to the Tutti Frutti collection. Customers said this setting spray smells great, while quite a number of customers said the pump to the bottle broke, in which they had to return the product.

Best primers on the market?

¬† ¬† ¬†Awww, here we go….a topic that definitely will have some of us (including me) shaking our heads. So before we get to that point, let’s cover a few things.

 

 

Honestly, what are the criteria of a good primer? I mean, if one company makes the same primer in a gel, cream, powder, or spray…….what determines if a primer is considered ‘good’. Like most makeup products on the market, let’s just be real, the first thing we take into consideration is the texture. Yes, Ulta, Sephora, and other companies provide customer reviews, which are extremely helpful.

In my personal experience, I’ve taken to the reviews to find out how others have used the product and how its worked for them. While this is helpful, sometimes relying on review is much too can lead to missing out on some really good products. Truth is, every product doesn’t work the same on every skin type of every shade.¬†

 

¬†Let’s try to break it down on what’s out there that’s considered top-rated and what is ‘good’ and ‘bad’ about them. Please keep in mind these primers are in no order, just known as top-rated. Here we go with Ulta first:

And next from Sephora:

While some brands or specific products form brands are exclusive to one store as opposed to the other, they both provide a comprehensive list of notable facial primers that are favorites among the customers. Some of my favorites have been Smashbox, Too Faced’s HangoverRx, and any primer from Urban Decay. What’s your favorite primer? Share with us.¬†

While some of us have seen some of these products on other websites or other stores, these are new for Sephora. Personally, I am shocked that Christian Louboutin decided to allow a major makeup store to carry their product. Check them out!

YouTube – Allure Beauty Box

¬† ¬† For the past 3 or four months, I can honestly say there is a love/hate relationship between myself and the Allure Beauty Box. Like that great-aunt with the terrible garlic breath that you know is going¬†to¬†give you an awesome present for the holidays. Or that hideous relationship that you were absolutely happy ended but you missed the kisses. Its like….urgh! From the first box that I got, there was something in there for me and something in that box that totally made me want to pack it back up, put it in my car and¬†drop it off at one of my friends’ house as a gift. Like what’s the point?

     One of the many perks of getting the Allure Beauty Box is that it exposes you to beauty and skincare companies all over the world that you probably never heard of. You also get the chance to try products that have come out in makeup stores that you may have been a bit apprehensive of spending the money on trying.

¬† ¬† ¬†There are numerous products that I’d wanted to try but did not want to spend the money on a possible makeup-fail. Products like the¬†Eyeko’s ‘Eye Do’ Liquid Eyeliner,¬†Make Up For Ever’s Artist Liquid Matte Liquid Lipstick, and Becca’s¬†Shimmering Skin Perfector¬ģ Pressed Highlighter. Now one of the main issues (probably the only true issue) that I’ve had with Allure is that the products that are sent….I’m simply not¬†interested¬†in the skin products, only the makeup products.

¬† ¬† ¬†Yes, I understand that I will very well miss out on the next best thing if I don’t keep myself open to all things but the makeup industry is what seems to be evolving the fastest. I mean, who can’t just use some Neutrogena and some H2O+ NightTime Moisture-Lock and call it a day for¬†the¬†skincare routine? I’m just saying gurl….Allure gotta step the makeup game up.
