PM Boris Johnson’s ‘new’ deal….again (4-minute read) — Center for International Relations and International Security

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.

If you are big on social media, you may have seen some of these products.

* Come on now, NO CONS to this Urban Decay palette? I think we should wait a little longer to see because that’s not what I’ve been seeing on YouTube reviews 👀

*Hey, hey….all you get is 12 shades, so don’t shoot the messenger. I didn’t even bother looking at the reviews because can you consider the reviews to be diverse and unbiased? Come on Benefits Cosmetics!

* I had to double-check the price of this palette. $38.00 for a palette with only eight shades? THAT’S $4.75 PER SHADE! Gurl, I can not……the Venus XL palette: Screen Shot 2018-07-19 at 9.37.04 PM

This palette is $56.00 for 18 shades….that’s $3.11 for per shade. What is the deal with the price? Is this normal?????

 

You know what, I gotta take a break from this one for the day. I gotta say that I’m a bit shocked at the price of Lime Crime’s eyeshadow palette, especially since they are an online-only brand at Ulta. Is there anywhere that you can physically see this product before buying it or is it a private company?

The Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival – Louisiana

    It seems that around this time of the year, Louisiana comes out of the winter and celebrates spring with a series of festivals that generations of families have enjoyed. One in particular that I try to attend every year is the Crawfish Festival in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana. Nestled between Lafayette and Baton Rouge, Breaux Bridge swells with people from all over the state to experience the taste of crawfish cooked every way possible.

     One of the beautiful things about this festival is that there is something there for everyone, including art from local artists and businesses, carnival rides and ohhhh, so much of that glorious cajun music. Being embedded in southeast Louisiana, some good cajun music will definitely get the crowd on their feet. . Check out a few of my photos from the festival this year:
