✨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:

Luscious Massacr

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 😍😍😍

Laura Mercier….get real!

Okay so this post may be a bit touchy but, whatever, right? Anyone that has been in the makeup world for a while or has had their makeup done by professionals over the years can tell you that the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder is the standard. For some magical reason, it seems that no matter how good you are at doing your makeup, this translucent setting powder takes your beauty game to the next level. Even if you did not know what it was, you’ve seen the container. It seems that when you buy this powder, it lasts forever. Here’s a photo of it:

Yes. There she is  ↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑  The magical, unicorn dandruff called Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder. Sigh…….

Well, what you are also likely to know, or after you take a trip to stores that carry this voodoo in a plastic container, is that its expensive too! Weighing into your purse at a whooping $38.00, it has been often discussed on which products are the valid dupes, saving us poor makeup geeks a few 💸💰  Here are the possibilities out there:

  • Doesn’t settle in creases (26 reviews)

CONS

While being a well-known and loved product, I am not surprised that people are calling E.L.F. a justified dupe for Laura Mercier’s setting powder. One thing I can agree with the review of this setting powder is that its probably the messiest. 

 

What’s your favorite setting powder dupe to Laura Mercier’s Translucent Setting Powder? Do you even think there is one, or should we just spend the coin and get the original. Leave a comment and let us know  🙂
