IMAG7539_1

 

Urban decay has been having a pretty bang up year with a lot of debuts. It’s almost as if the brand is *gasp* innovating again! Ok, all shade aside, they’ve had some pretty great things debut. Listen, there are all types of palettes on the scene, from blush to highlighters and shadow palettes. One of which is the new Naked Heat palette that your girl had to be talked out of getting. There are new lippies, primers, powders. UD is not playing with y’all.

IT Cosmetics Confidence In Your Glow Blushing Bronzer.

IMAG0243_1

 

I like the idea of IT Cosmetics. The reality is often something else though for a couple of reasons. If you follow Jackie Aina on YouTube, she details how the foundations are too light for her. The one foundation she had been able to use, left her looking corpsey. I can use the last shade in most of their lines, Rich, pretty well. However I do get the grey cast that she talks about as well. The undertones on their foundation products for deeper complexions are…lacking.

Becca x Chrissy Teigen Face Glow Palette.

I was so excited when I heard that this palette was gonna be a thing. I mean, a brand that I appreciate and Chrissy Teigen team up to create a palette? Yeah, I’m there. Also, if you’re not following her on Twitter or Snapchat or Instagram, then I don’t know what to tell you about your life, cause she is hilarious!

I heard about the palette about two weeks before it dropped, and I was able to get it from Sephora a few days before it officially launched as an app exclusive offering. As with any highly anticipated launch there were all sorts of problems happening in the background. Pre-launch orders got cancelled before they shipped, cause apparently Lazership was breaking everything. Luckily mine came intact, albeit way later than a usual Sephora shipment.

Becca Backlight Priming Filter

IMAG1633

I got the Becca Backlight primer cause I’m Becca obsessed and well, it was new and I wanted to try it. It’s a radiance primer and generally speaking, I don’t care for most of them because I think they make me look super greasy. But this is Becca right? Where subtlety is the name of the game. Besides which, the only other radiance primer that I’ve ever liked, the one from Japonesque (review here), I managed to break it. Yeah.

New For Summer! Smashbox Cosmetics.

This post is over two month’s in the making, but you know, time constraints and what not. And oh yeah, because I pretty much hated all of it. So now I have these lovely pictures for you g guys. Let me just say first off that I’m really not a huge Smashbox fan, the only two things I’ve ever been impressed with is the Liquid Halo foundation and the original primer. Maybe a lipstick or two. I know a lot of people swear by them, but I dunno, their stuff just never seems to work out for me, so I’m not really sure why I keep bothering. But I’ve made up my mind that this is gonna be my last Smashbox purchase unless it’s foundation. Their stuff always looks so colourful ad intriguing though, that I end up getting suckered in.

Collective Vacation Haul: Laura Mercier

IMAG4632_1

 

These are some of the items that I got from MUABS.com. The seller, Brenda aka Omgmakeup, sells only new items at a fraction of the cost. There are actually a few sellers on the site for whom it’s a business and they only sell new makeup. When I’ve purchased stuff from the site I usually only purchase from Omgmakeup and Nya90. Because let’s get real, this is a makeup site for deeply discounted makeup, and I get that the others are also selling new items, but if I wanted to pay full price, I’d just go to Sephora. Use this link for omgmakeup’s MUABS shop and this one for Nya90. I’ve purchased from both a few times and each time I haven’t been disappointed with my stuff when I get it. In all from Omgmakeup I spent $142 for $283 worth of brand new items, cause this wasn’t the only thing that I got from her shop. So yeah, MUABS is a good place to find bargains, you just have to be careful of the scammers cause there are some, always use PayPal and you’re covered.
