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:

Screen Shot 2018-11-19 at 1.56.11 PM.png

 

 

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:

 

Screen Shot 2018-11-19 at 2.08.49 PM

 

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 ifΒ  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? $39.00Β 

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.

Screen Shot 2018-11-19 at 2.24.23 PM

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.Β

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).Β  But let’s check out what’s new this month:

Screen Shot 2018-09-09 at 9.17.48 PMScreen Shot 2018-09-09 at 9.18.16 PM

 

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.

 

 

Screen Shot 2018-09-09 at 9.26.00 PM

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.

 

Screen Shot 2018-09-09 at 9.29.53 PM

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.

So Patrick Starrr has released his eyeshadow and lip kits. Let’s see what both eyeshadow palettes and lipsticks have to offer:Β 

Screen Shot 2018-09-09 at 9.38.14 PM

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:

 

Screen Shot 2018-09-09 at 9.42.29 PMScreen Shot 2018-09-09 at 9.43.32 PM

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.Β 

 

Screen Shot 2018-09-10 at 12.53.21 PM

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.Β  Here is how the product is doing among Ulta customers:

 

Screen Shot 2018-09-10 at 12.57.22 PM

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:

 

Screen Shot 2018-09-10 at 1.14.47 PM

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:

 

Screen Shot 2018-09-10 at 1.18.21 PM

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.

Make sure to get on our mailing list as I’ll be uploading more information on other products. Thanks for reading!

Norvina palette: Hear it from the ones we follow on social mediaπŸ§šπŸ½β€β™€οΈ

Β  Β  Β So….was it something you were waiting for, Β 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.Β 

sipping-tea-gif-11Wine sip
Alright so let’s get into this palette:Β 

Β  Β  Β 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 thisΒ gorgeousΒ little oddity. So…..what kind of reactions did we get from our favorite makeup artists? Let’s check it out:

Luscious Massacr

Screen Shot 2018-07-30 at 7.38.23 PM

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

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

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, Β I was thinking one thing and one thing only. Lucky for me,Β Lushious Massacr was bold enough to say it for us in her YouTube video at the 1:56Β 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 withΒ deliveringΒ what we were expecting when weΒ saw theΒ shade color and mood the palette cover gave us.Β 

Make sure to check out Lushious Massacr onΒ YoutubeΒ 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 😍😍😍

Sephora’s Top 5 Selling Foundations πŸ”₯

Β  Β  Ever wondered which foundation formula is right for you? Yes, we have gone to the makeup stores and had that confused feeling, until a staff member finds your poor, wondering soul lingering between the Huda Beauty and Nars Cosmetics. As you are basking in the beautiful makeup color and eye-catching displays, there will be someone to come and guide you along your makeup journey – I can speak from my own experience. πŸ™‚

As a novice to the makeup world, one of the items that bring me to a blurring line is foundation. I’ve often matched myself with a cool red undertone that should have been warmer or a red tone when I should have gone neutral. Its not your error, that’s why we call them makeup artists and as long as you understand that each company has its own unique formula, you should feel comfortable if it takes you a while to match your skin to the perfection foundation color for whichever type of coverage you desire.Β 

Here are the current top-selling foundations at Sephora for March 2018 so far (in no particular order):

– Β  FentyFenty Beauty by Rihanna Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longer Foundation (exclusive)

  • Medium coverage (buildable to full coverage)
  • Good for all skin types
  • Matte finish

Fenty Beauty has shook the makeup world with contributing 40 shades on its initial launching. While impressive on its own, producing a formula that is buildable from medium to full coverage and still maintaining a soft matte finish with the confidence of long wear provides its a brand to be respected. While MUAs tend to stick with using their favorite primer, it is suggested to use Fenty Beauty’s Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer for best results.

– Β Huda Β  Β  Β  Β Β Huda Beauty #FauxFilter Foundation (exclusive)

  • Full coverage
  • Good for all skin types
  • Natural finish

Known as another exclusive to Sephora, #FauxFilter by Huda Beauty is another favorite. This foundation provides covering up the current ‘you’ and brings out the new ‘you’ with will a natural finish and blurring pore affects. If you are looking for a pore-less natural full coverage, this is an option for you.

– Β  Β  Make Up For EverΒ  Β  Β Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation (exclusive)

  • Allure 2017 Reader’s Choice Award Winner
  • Medium coverage
  • All skin types
  • Natural finish

Another brand with 40 luscious shades to choose from, this foundation is another exclusive at Sephora. With a natural finish, Make Up For Ever says that this foundation in buildable medium coverage, natural finish, which also claims ‘makes skin look 100 percent flawless, but is zero percent noticeable’. (Sephora.com, n.d.). Although I tend to shy away from terms that claim percentages because of the assumption that it can apply to each and every skin type, shade and conditions, I must say that the claim of a flawless look is impressive. I’ve never tried this foundation but I hope to in the near future.

iT CosmeticsΒ  Β Β iT CosmeticsΒ Your Skin But Betterβ„’ CC+β„’ Cream with SPF 50+

  • Allure 2017 Reader’s Choice Award Winner
  • Cream foundation
  • All skin types
  • Full coverage
  • Natural finish
  • SPF 50+

iT Cosmetics comes to the game with a cream foundation that seems to take into consideration of those who care more about the long-term affects of makeup wear. With this in mind, iT Cosmetics has brought a full coverage/natural finish/color-correcting/SPF 50+/ anti-aging foundation to the makeup game – like wow. This one grabs me when I first read about it because myself and many people that I know want to have a beautiful finish to their makeup but also want to take care of the skin that they are exposing to daily makeup as well.Β 

NARSNARSΒ Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation

  • Full coverage
  • All skin types
  • Radiant finish

In somewhat of a secret over the years that I’ve gotten my makeup done by MUAs, NARS is known as the silent favorite among professionals. Providing a full coverage finish, this foundation provides a surprising radiant finish to your makeup look…often providing a ‘fresh’ face aura to your special-occasion makeup. From my own experience with this product, there’s very little fading during long wear and a little goes a long way! This makeup company provided a U.S. consumer 1-week research that speaks on percentages in the spectrum of lack of streakiness, appearance, blending, etc. I like to stay away from percentages πŸ˜…Β (pressure)
