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.
