(Re-Upload) Brown Girls Rejoice! Your Bronzer Has Finally Arrived.

IMAG1173_1

 

I spied this baby today when I went to Sephora to pick up the Teint Fusion foundation. Some wonderful soul named Paige, had given me a birthday gift card, so I was able to get them both. Plus we both wanted to check out the foundation, she has the pale girl problems to my brown girl bemoaning when it come to makeup. I’ll have a review of that foundation coming up soon, but I must say, Sephora has definitely been impressing me all year starting with the Marsala debut.

NEW!! Jouer Cosmetics Limited Edition Spring Collection.

IMAG7309_1

 

Since I’ve been trying to get posts back on the site after losing most of them, I haven’t been doing a whole lot of purchasing because I’ve been distracted. But like the Too Faced collection, I had actually set an alarm for this launch way ahead of time and was checked out of the website probably five minutes after it dropped. In fact I was done minutes before I received the official launch email from Jouer.

The collection is mostly rose gold themed and contains an eye shadow palette, two lip products in a rose gold shade and a powder highlighter also in rose gold.

The lip cream is probably my least favourite so far, but I sort of knew that going in.

(Re-Upload) Tarte LE Tarteist Blush Palette.

IMAG3704

 

I got this as part of my Ulta Platinum Haul, this isn’t going to be an overly long post as there isn’t a whole lot to say beyond ranting and screaming. I bought, I saw, I was epically disappointed.

This is one of the latest of the Tarteist collection, I love Tarte blushes so I jumped on the chance to get four of them in one slim palette for only $38, plus with points and a 20% off coupon, my entire order was less than $10 more than the price of this palette. I thought I’d made out like a bandit. Until I had the palette in hand.

(Re-Upload) Jouer LE Mermaid Collection.

IMAG3937

 

This is my first bonafide Jouer purchase. I remember that I got a lip gloss in a Glossybox some time ago, and while I thought it was ok, I didn’t run out and get a bunch of stuff from the brand because I wasn’t all that impressed cause, I’m not a gloss kinda chick. And real talk? It seemed like a real white identified line.

I’ve been eyeing a few things on the site though since some of my fave brown bloggers (@JackieAina and Danielle) seem to like them so…

NEW! Kiko Limited Edition 20th Anniversary Less is Better Capsule Collection.

IMAG7246_1

 

To celebrate their 20th birthday, Kiko recently launched the limited edition Less is Better Collection. It consists of liquid highlighters, matte liquid lipsticks, two cream blushes, shadow pencils and a nine pan shadow palette. This collection is a collaboration with the brand SuperDuper Handmade hats, and is a completely nude collection meant to emphasise the no makeup look, whilst celebrating natural beauty. This is a limited edition collection that I find rather odd as a Spring debut. Spring makeup debuts are generally either bright or whimsical creatures, whereas this collection plays with very dark, yet muted colours that are usually associated with Fall or Winter.

New! Too Faced Natural Love Collection.

IMAG7233

 

I haven’t purchased a Too Faced palette since the Chocolate Bon Bons palette that I returned the next day. The brand’s recently been so hit or miss with their palettes that I’ve just been very meh about them and whenever there’s a new Too Faced launch I’m all…ok? When I saw this beauty though with thirty shades, my heart skipped a beat. In fact, my heart skipped a couple beats at the entire Natural Love collection and although the palette was on my list, the things that I truly wanted most was one of the new shades of Melted Matte liquid lipstick, and at least two of the three highlighters.

The aim of this collection is natural beauty, everything is supped make you look gorgeous, but naturally so. On the face of it, it’s a gorgeous collection, but once you get to it…well…

(Re-Upload) All Bases Covered; Blushes and Such.

Ok, so this is the second part and this is going to include some illuminators and illuminating finishing powders. Blushes as well, but like I mentioned before, I just tend to get blushes wherever without sticking to brand, high or low, so this is just going to be a list of the best performing lost cost blushes that I’ve found to date, with a few comparisons. I’m not sure that I’ll be doing lipsticks or not, because to be honest, a huge chunk of the drug store lip products that I’ve gotten just do not perform all that great. If I do wind up doing that, it’ll be a much shorter post.

(REUPLOAD) Holiday 2016: Ciate London Chloe Morello Beauty Haul

IMAG5004_1

 

I have had this for weeks and I’m sad to say that until earlier this week, I hadn’t paid it enough attention to use and review it. I bought this before it dropped because it was already available in the UK first and I gots people. I was initially a lot more impressed with this looking at it online than I was when I got it, and it’s not because it’s not a good palette, it it is. There’s just not anything very spectacular about it.

Let me go straight on record saying that if you already have any of the Fun, Fearless or Pretty palettes that debuted earlier this year, then you probably don’t need this or you may. For instance if you were only able to afford one of them, or if you like me gave one of yours away to covetous individuals. I only have my Fun Palette left.

(REUPLOAD) Holiday 2016: Jouer Essential Matte And Shimmer Palette

I really need to get my life together. My blogging schedule is for crap right now, which sucks cause this time of year is the wrong time to be falling behind for real. Anywhoo…

I’ve been loving every single thing that I’ve gotten from Jouer so far, which is a bit sad. Lemme explain. This is really about the importance of advertising and marketing.
