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). But let’s check out what’s new this month:
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.
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.
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:
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:
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.
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. Here is how the product is doing among Ulta customers:
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:
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:
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.

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 😍😍😍
While I have spent my share hours of my little life in front of a mirror, attempting to do my makeup before a date, important events, or just a day to cover blemishes, one trend that has gotten the masses out to the makeup aisles…..holographic and glitter makeup. Yes, dear reader, I am aware that your favorite YouTube beauty gurus have attempted to kill the holographic/glitter craze of 2017 but the reality is….it just takes some of us normal people time to come around to what the latest trend is. Sometimes the latest trends don’t fit into our lifestyle in which we have transitional time in which we come around to trying new makeup ideas. Other times, new makeup trends cost us not only our time, but extra money. That’s right, it can tend to put a dent in other everyday things that are standard so, buying new makeup can be considered a ‘treat yourself’ moment, let alone a product you have never used before.
Yes reader, just like some of you, makeup trends are a luxury to me and I have often passed them up and settled to watching a professional makeup artist use the latest products on their own faces while I observe for free. Now that time has passed and I have taken the initiative to engage some of the new holographic and glitter trends, I’d like to share with you some of my favorites in no particular order:
While this product is one of those ‘I don’t know’ things until you read all the good reviews or your friends start talking about it, you’ll quickly regret not getting it sooner. Priced at a reasonable $9.99, L’Oreal’s Infalliable Holographic Highligher stick is highly sought after in the shades Cosmic Pink, Astro Blue, and Galaxy Gold. While still exclusive, don’t get mad at me when you visit your local ULTA store and its likely to be sold out. This is a highly-pigmented, multi-use highlighter that fits wonderfully into your purse, bag, in the armrest of your car….you get what I’m saying girlie? This product can be applied to the brow bone as a highlight, over a matte eyeshadow, cheekbones, cupid’s bow…need I say more?
Now since L’Oreal has brought the makeup community a definite holographic series winner AND bought another cosmetic corporation for about $1.2 billion…maybe we can finally get those iT Cosmetics foundation shades expanded a little?🤨🤨😁
Now before you start, let’s be honest here…Wet-n-Wild has come a long way in the makeup community. While I have been a bit apprehensive about liquid highlighters, this one was something I couldn’t pass up. While available in you local drugstore, this highlighter can be bought just about anywhere. Why is it so amazing? Because its BLINDING!!!! Yes, highlighter overload if you don’t watch it, so a little goes a long way, which is a good thing. While priced at $4.68 on Walmart.com, this highlighter is a great way to start playing with the different way in how this can bring some ‘pop’ to your makeup routine.
When we talk about low-cost highlighter and fancy glitter lipgloss, one of the names that usually don’t come to mind is Urban Decay. With their impressive lippy-series called Vice, Urban Decay has brought a full spectrum of color to the makeup game. What they also did with the Vice series is provide us with the lip topcoats. These lipgloss-like toppers can be worn alone or over a matte lipstick, giving you that glitzy effect with hints of stunning color. Now….ready for the price? While originally priced at $18.00, these lip-toppers are on sale at your local makeup store (Ulta, Sephora) for $9.00! Gurl….what are you waiting for??? Get to Sephora 💕
