New Products at Ulta💄

Here as we try to keep you informed, are some of the new products that are available at Ulta. We’ll look over the products that most of us hasn’t tried yet, but there are some reviews available for us to check out:

Okay, okay let’s take it with an open mind……we know it’s Becca. But this is a collector’s edition of their new glow body stick. While there no reviews for this product yet, do you just love the packaging? Now just remember, while they do reference this as a glow stick, they mean it because the stick is oil-based. If you have an issue with oil or you are known to have oil clog up your pores, you may want to stay away from this product.

Now I will say that First Aid Beauty and quickly become one of my favorites when it comes to cleaning and rehydrating my skin. Now there have released this conditioning eye makeup remover that I personally cannot wait to try out. I would usually use a primer base by NYX or Too Faced before applying eye shadow, so I’m excited to see how this makeup remover will work to counter those products. While there are no reviews yet, I would love to know what people think of the product, especially those of us with sensitive eyes.

Okay, don’t blame me but when I saw this product I wasn’t too thrilled to try it. I’ve used their peel-off masks previously and will say that I favored one out of all of them, which was a little disappointing. If you don’t know I Dew Care is a Korean-based beauty product that has become very popular in the United States, especially since being introduced to the shelves at your local Ulta store. This particular product is called a makeup remover balm, which sounded a bit counterproductive if I am applying a balm to take off my makeup. As I looked further into the product description, I found out that this balm paste transforms into an oil, which make removing the makeup easier. While I does have blueberry extract and jojoba oil in the product, I’m wondering if the product needs to be massaged on the face and are you to simple wipe off with a cotton pad and then wash the face? We will see when the reviews come in!

Can we be honest here? When is the last time you’ve seen a BH Cosmetics product get rave reviews? It seems the cosmetics company has put out products that have not sold well in the recent years, or have lacked to get new customers. I believe this Stellar Collision eyeshadow and highlighter palette is an opportunity for BH to get back on top and cater to the ever-changing beauty community. With 17 shades, BH says that they can be used as eyeshadows or as toppers or highlighters. The site doesn’t specify how to use it as a topper compared to using as a shadow, but I’m going to take a healthy guess and assume that you’ll want to use a brush to make it an eyeshadow and do a topper with your finger or a small sponge applicator 🤷🏽‍♀️

What’s new at Ulta✨

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.

✨New products at Sephora – Sept. 2018

Last week, we discussed some of the new products that were available at Ulta stores all over the country. For this one, we won’t cover the ones that have we’ve already chatted about. With Sephora considered to be a ‘high end’ makeup store, they are likely to provide us with more products that are exclusive to Sephora. Let’s see what they have so far:

Okay, okay I know what you are saying. ‘Dee, that’s not a new product’. But, my friend, I believe it is worth mentioning, based on its value. While this holiday set does have some of Too Faced’s amazing products, what caught my eye was this exclusive 24-color eyeshadow palette. So, this palette promises a combination of mattes, metallics, shimmers and a highlighter. Bronzers, mascara, the Hangover spray….$357 value for $58. Very nicely priced.

Any new Fenty highlighter is always a treat to makeup lovers. This glitter is for the body and I can’t wait to see more reviews as they come in. With Currently 118 reviews, this product is getting 4.5 out of 5. Amazing!

Natasha Denona has done it again with this new, all matte eyeshadow palette. While a lot of palettes provide a combination of mattes and shimmers, this one is for the expert blender. This eyeshadow palette promises zero-fallout in grey, warm, and reddish tones.

This is Pat McGrath’s new eyeshadow palette, Mothership V in Bronze Seduction. Yes, I know you are looking at the price point and well, it is Pat McGrath. She’s known to provide high-end, luxurious shadow colors. This palette is said to give you single-stroke, highlight and defining with seamless blendability.

Okay, this threw us for a loop. This is a seasonal product for those gingerbread lovers. Now, if you don’t like gingerbread….well, you just out of luck with trying this matte lipstick because its scented. Too bad.

Now this one looks so appealing. This highlighter palette has a wonderful play on luxurious gold bars. Available for $58, this highlighter palette comes with gold, soft pink, rose gold, and a high-shimmer bronze.

Norvina palette: Hear it from the ones we follow on social media🧚🏽‍♀️

     So….was it something you were waiting for,  because I know myself and others in the beauty community were anticipating this as well. Norvina, the new eyeshadow palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills. While not available in Ulta or Sephora until August 5th, this palette was is currently available online for purchase on ABH’s website. Lucky for us, some of my favorite YouTubers have gotten their hands on this palette and I am here for the tea.

Alright so let’s get into this palette: 

     On the first look, the Norvina eyeshadow palette gives us the look just as the Subculture, Modern Renaissance and Soft Glam palettes. Soft, velour-type feel to the cover of the palette, putting you definitely in the mood and prepared to be blown away by the shades that are inside this gorgeous little oddity. So…..what kind of reactions did we get from our favorite makeup artists? Let’s check it out:

One of my favorite YouTubers out of south Texas who is known for giving us potent fantasy through makeup and drag. Have you seen this beauty?

     While known for her drag fantasy makeup, its hard to not acknowledge her raw talent for artistry.          

Who else to give us the realness on the new Norvina palette other than ✨LUSHIOUS MASSACR✨

Now, when I initially saw the palette, I was appreciative of the palette name ‘Base’, letting users known its purpose. After I got over the appreciation of that,  I was thinking one thing and one thing only. Lucky for me, Lushious Massacr was bold enough to say it for us in her YouTube video at the 1:56 mark of her review/tutorial:

Thank you for saying it for us all, Lushious…..where in the hell is this shade that the box is covered in? Give us this color!!!!!!

I’m expecting to get a more vibrant range of colors, centered around the color of the palette, but it didn’t happen. Don’t get me wrong, the palette is beautiful with a even number of mattes and shimmers (girl, that looks like glitter), but where I think the palette missed the mark is with delivering what we were expecting when we saw the shade color and mood the palette cover gave us. 

Make sure to check out Lushious Massacr on Youtube and follow her to see her sickening looks on Instagram. Being that she’s from the south like me, I love to see my beautiful people giving us life and sharing their artistry with the world.

*Thank you to all of my subscribers and fans overseas and followers from Polyvore and UrStyle. I love you all 😍😍😍
